Will Build a Good
Road to N. C. Line
We understand that the supervisor
and commissioners of Pickens county
are investigating routes with the pur
pose in view of building a good roat
across the mountains to the to the North
Carolina line. We do not know just
when work will begin on the road or
ust what route it will take after it hits
the mountains, but it is practically cer
tain that it will be built at no distani
This will be exceedingly good news tc
the people of the county, many of whom
have seen the need of such a road for
some time, and we bespeak for the
pupervisor and commissioners the co
operation of the people in this work.
Don't get too impatient and be toc
ready to criticize, but be ready to hel:
if you are -called upon and this road will
certainly be built.

J. T. and C. F., and two daughters,
Mrs. M. Barton, whose husband diec
some time ago, and Nannie Jane, the
younger daughter. He died athishomc

buried at Mt. Carmel church at 1 o'clock
Monday afternoon. The funeral was
conducted by Rev. Walter Lee Coker.
Mr. Pace had not been very healthy
for a -number of years, but his passing

which cannot be filled. His many
friends will bemoan the family's loss
with them.

Y er attorneys, McSwain & Craig, has
t entered suit against the Southern Rail
)way Co. for $25,000 on account of the
death of her son, Lloyd Jameson, whose
death is claimed to have been the fault
of the railroad company. The young
man was a flagman on the Southern

tractions for Pickens
Morrow Brothers Quartet will be the
rst lyceum attraction to come to Pick
ns this year and will be at the school
uditorium next Thursday night, Febru
ry 1. These four brothers come here
with a natibn-wide reputation of being.
he best in their line. Their program'
onsists of vocal and instrumental solos!
,nd quartets, readings and costume
haracter sketches, and they also play a
nusical instrument of their own inven
ion, composed of plate glass keys of
arying lngths and pitch.
Many of our citizens have wondered if
)ickens was going to have a lyceum
ourse this year and the announcement
hat the first attraction will appear next
week will be welcome news. There will
ie five attractions brought here this seh
on and they are absolutely the highest
lass ever brought here. The reason
hese entertainments are coming here
ater than usual is that it was impossible
.o get such high class numbers to come
o a town the size of Pickens during the
ielght of the lyceum season and we are
rortunate in getting them at all.
The other four attractions which will
appear here soon are the Treble Glec
Club, composed of four young ladies;
the Brewer Musical entertainer, a com.
pany of three ladies; the Caveny Com
pany, composed of one gentleman and
two ladies; the Original Strollers Quar.
tet, composed of four gentlemen.
Regular admission price at the door
will be 25 and 50 cents. Those who wish
to buy season tickets should see John C.

Pickens May Have
Ladies' Rest Room
Ladies of Pickens have inaugurated for
a movement which they hope will result
in giving the town a rest room for the
convenience of visiting ladies who come hi
here. a
We are glad to hear of the movement ju
and believe it will meet with the hearty 801
approval and co-operation of every pub
lie spirited citizen of this good town. I
There is no doubt but that it would be a W
good thing for both the town and vis
iting ladies, who are often inconveni- est
enced by having no place to sit down a M4
few minutes while here, and oftentimes "
have no place to leave the children while an
shopping. Pil
It is the purpose of the ladies of the I -
town to secure a room near the center a
of the business part of Pickens and fit it cl
up in a comfortable and homelike way
where ladies who come here may rest
between shopping times, or may wait oni
their husbands or other folks to finish su
some business, or may leave their small
children a short while; in fact, a place i
where visiting ladies may make their se
headquarters and feel at home while in sa
Pickens. Someone would be secured to I"
stay at the room every day to keep it in
order and assist the visitors, and it would vi
make shopping in Pickens a real plea.-ure
for ladies, whereas there is no doubt
that it is now sometimes tiresome.
It will take some money to make the
rest room what it ought to be and the!
business men of Pickens will be expected
to contribute a sufficient amount each P
month for its support. A committee
will probably see each merchant some
time soon in regard to this undertaking.
Lee's and Jackson's Birthday
Under the auspices of the Pickens
chapter, U.D.C., the birthdays of Rob
ert E. Lee and Stonewall Jackson were
celebrated with appropriate exercises
in the Pickens school auditorium last'
Friday afternbon, January19. Lee was
born January 19, 1807, and Jackson was T
born January 21, 1824, and as the birth
days are so near together it is the usual
custom to celebrate both at the same
Prof. Campbell presided at the meet
ing, which Rev. D. W. Hiott opened
with prayer. Rev. E. T. Hodges made
the address. which was not only very
appropriate but pleasing and instruct
ive to the audience. During the exer
cises the audience sang "How Firm a
Foundation, " which is said to have been
General Lee's favorite hymn, and at
the close sang "America." The good
and patriotic program was much en
joyed by those present.
