"My Country 'Tis of Thee, Sweet Land
Easley is the metropolis of ['ickens
county. It is already a live town with
good business, attractive residences,
growing industries, good schools and
churches and mighty fine people. Not
content With things as they are, it is
proposed that the municipality shall
have an adequate sewerage system and
paved streets. At the last session of
the general assembly acts were passed ,
enabling Easley to vote upon the issu
ance of bonds in the n:nount of $21,000
for the construction and maintenance of
a sewerage system and upon a consid
erable anun t forstreet paving. Wheth
er these honds will h:- voted the News
does not know, bu.t in the event that
* they are, watch Easley grow. 'T'here is
no reason why Easley should not increase
l:a population at a rapid rate, for its
growth in this respect is marked. Ac
cording to the last census, Easley had
more people than any other municipality
in P'ickens ecnty amp! the township in
the townslhi1 in which it is situated en
joyed like distinction. In 181.0 Easley
had but .121 inhabitants, in 1900 it had
933, but in 110 it had 2,983 people. By
this time it, must have between 4,000
and 5,000 population. I ts rate of growth
was very considerably higher than that
of any other town in the county. If it
keeps up it will have as many people in
fact as Spartanburg has in fiction. With
alvwed streets and a sewerage system
which will protect the health of its citi
zens, Easley will be a regular magnet
for population, a more comfortable and
sightly municipality as well as more
prosperous generally. Progress seems
to be knocking at Easley's door and, if
we mistake not, Easley is going to be
the New York of the section between
Greenville and the Georgia line. It is
one of the termini of the Pickens Rail
road system and all travelers and tour
ists from the North and West to Pick
ens Court H-ouse get to see something
of this thriving metropolis. Easley has
wealth, health, happiness anid a future
of progress and prosperity.
