Assumes His Duties
O..'S. Stewart, who was elected as
clerk, of court of Pickens county in the
recent election, assumed the duties of
that office Tuesday, January 2, 1917.
The new clerk is the oldest son of Mr.
and Mrs. Robert Stewart. He was born
In 1868 on the west side of the ebunty
and was reared on the farm and received
his education in the common schools.
His first job off the farm was in a store
and he remained with the same firm fif
teen years, during which time he took
a business course in a Greenville busi
ness college and served as bookkeeper
for several. years. Men whom he had
been associated with in a business way
were among his strongest supporters in.
his campaign for the clerk's office, which
fact speaks well for any man in public
or private life. Mr. Stewart is proba
bly the first Pickens county officer ever
elected who is exactly the same age as
the county, having been born the year
Pickens and Oconee were divioed into
two counties. He had an even start
with the county and it is safe to say he
will keep up with it.
For many years Pickens county has
enjoyed the reputation of having the
best clerk of court in the state, and we
feel sure that it will continue to enjoy
this distinction with Mr. Stewart in the
office. He will-be assiste4 in the office
by that excellent gentleman, J. M.
Stewart, who was for many years clerk,
and by Mrs. Lena Cox.
Mr. Stewart is the first of the recent
ly elected county officers to go intooffice.
Auditor Christopher's term will expire
in February, while Treasurer Stewart
and Superintendent Hallum hold over
until July 1.

sponsibility, shone in each little face;
for getting into one's costume in crowd

when one's time came, was no small
undertaking for sixty-odd smallpeople.
The aim of the evenings undertaking
was to set forth the true meaning of
the Christmas festivities.
The children acted their parts vell.
Each little person was 'on the job"
when the time came. The band gave
good music, the decorations were beau-,

Wants Better Roads
in Pickens County
Editor Sentinel: As the New Year is
here and our law makers are about to
enter upon'their duties, I think it is the
time for us to get our minds together
and tell them just what we would like to
have done for another year or more.
I, for one, am not satisfied with our
roads and bridges. I ddn't think this is
the time to lay up money for the coun
ty, and it seems to me the present su
pervisor mpst have a big sum to the
credit of the county, and if this is not
true we certainly are going to the bad
for the past three years.
Oconee county has improved her roads
wonderfully for the last four years, and
with a lot less money than we have been
using. Greenville county is buildingfine
roads, but using a lot of money, which
I think she will be proud of, and deserves
a lot of credit for making the start.
Pickens county has no outlet across the
mountains and very poor roads all over
the county. Shall we sit still and con
tinue to go backward in road building?
I think everyone should speak out and
say so if you are satisfied.
I for one have no choice in who is su
pervisor, even though he refuses to listen
at my troubles, and think this is a pretty
good plan, but I am wanting to see some
results from the other fellow's plan.
Lbt us all come together and work for
the upbuilding of our roads and county,
and let 1917 be known as the most pros
perous year in our history in the im
provement of our county and roads.
Cadm of thanka published for one-halr cent

We wish to express to our friends our
sincere thanks for their kindness and
sympathy shown us during the sickness
and death of our dear husband and fath
er. We can't express our entire ap-,
preciation of your deeds of kindness to
us, but we trust the stars in your crown
may be brighter, by the paths you have
made easier. May the Lord richly bless
you all is our prayer.

tion in this section.
Mr. J. W. Thomas, the bossearderof
the Norris cotton mills, and Mr. H. A.
Shirley, the boss carder of the Ark
wright mills in Spartanburg, have ex
changed places.
Messrs. J. H. Chapman of Central
route 8 and John Roper of Six Mile have
swapped places. We are sorry Mr:
Chapman is getting farther from us,
but glad that he will be no farther than
Six Mile. We welcome Mr. Roper into
our section.
Mr. Mitchell Roe of Six Mile has
bought the Thomas Pilgrim place near
Camp Creek church and will move to it.
Mr. Thomas Pilgrim has bought part
of Mr. D. M. Newton's farm near Nor

- Mr. D. M. Newton-has bought a house
and lot in Central and will :move to it.
We are sincerely sorry to give Mr. New
ton and his good family up, for they are
Christian people and a shining light to
their community, but Cateechee's loss
Is Central's gain.
Mr. W. R. Hutchinson, general man
ager of the Company store at Catee
chee, will leave the 16th inst. for Pelzer
to accept a similar position. We are
sincerely sorry to lose such a man as
Mr. Hutchinson, for his place not only
in the store will be hard to fill, but he
will be missed in the community as a
citizen and in the church as an earnest
and untiring worker. He has been sec
retary of the Cateechee Sunday school
for sometime and is always present.
Rumor has it that Mr. G. F. Norris
is soon to move to Greenville. but we
have been unable to learn whether the
rumor is true or not, as Mr. and Mrs.
Norris are on an extended visit to
Batesburg and Orangeburg. We hope
the rumor is not true.
The many friends of Mr. J. F. Wil
liams, our *efficient postmaster and the
cotton weigher at Cateechee, will be
sorry to learn that he got his ankle
broken last Saturday by- two bales of
cotton falling on him. We hope he will
soon be out again. ' B.
