Large Crowd Says Goodbye to Soldiers A crowd estimated at 2,000 men, women and children gathered in Pickens last Friday to do honor and bid Godspeed to the young men of Pickens county who were to leave next day for Camp Andrew Jackson at Columbia to enter the National army of the United States. Ninety young men were present ready to go, but only eighty were sent, which, by the way, was seven more than the county's quota. . It was a (lay the like of which has never before been seen in this grand old county. Mothers, fathers, brothers, sisters and sweethearts of the soldiers were present to give what encourage ment they could and to let the boys know they loved them. It was no Fourth of July celebration nor a hip! hip! hurrah! meeting; neither was it a funeral occasion, but a serious and sol emn affair, enshrouded with a certain kind of enthusiasm. Long before time for the formal ex ercises to begin the court house was crowded and when the meeting was called to older hardly half the people could get in, tho the house was packed and jammed. The meeting was opened with prayer by Rev. D. W. liott. J. P. Carey, Jr., made the first and brief address and in troduced Dr. .John E. White of Ander son, the principal speaker of the day. le came here with a big reputation and he added to it with a masterpiece of eloquence and information. It is safe to say that no address ever made in Pickens surpassed that delivered by Dr. White on this occasion. To try to re produce even a part of it in cold type would detraqt from it. le went back forty years and told step by step how Germany had made preparations to be come a world empire, and how she brought this war on. He said that a year ago he was opposed to the United States entering the war, but showed how events had shaped themselves so that this couutry could not remain out of the war and retain its liberty. De fined autocracy and democracy, and said if Germany should emerge from the war victorious 'all countries would from necessity become autocracies,while if the United States and the Allies won all countries would become democracies. It is a fight for world-wide democracy and the right of the people to rule them selves. Predicted the war would end before next September. The speaker was frequently interrupted by applause and closed with an ovation. C. E. Robinson next introduced J. '. L'arey, Sr., who delivered one of those addresses for which he is famous -- full )f meat, practical and "soaks in." His talk was of an encouraging nature to the )oys, and we haven't the least doubt >ut that they will make better soldiers 'or it. He told the boys how well Uncle 3am treated his soldiers and what Uncle Sam expected of them. le was vocif nrously applauded. E. P. McCravey made a short talk and corrected several erroneous reports wyhich slacker's had attempitedl to circu Late. Rev. 11. K. Williams dismissed the audience wvith prayer, after wvhich a picnic dinner was serv'ed on a large table in the court house grove. At 3.30 o'dlock in the afternoon the court house was again overflowed wvith pjeople to hear' the roll of soldiers calledl and~( see' the pr'esentation of comfort bags and razors to the boys. TJhe comn fort bags were made by good ladies in all sections of' the coun ty and filled wvith artic'les wvhich will be use ful to thte boys in camp lif'e. Mrs. Ji. I'. Carey, Jr1., presented them in a most graceful and charming manner. Itev. D). WV. Hiott then made a short * priese'ntat ion speech andl gave to each soldier a safety raz~or, presents of the men of' Pickens. The newv soldies were then asked to stand up so the audience could see them. They were given the chautauqua salute, hand shakes andl were hugged and cheered to the echo. People from every part of the county were here and it wvas a great dlay- -a history-making one--andl one which will be long remembered. Miss Ethel Roper Dead Miss E'thel Rtoper, (laughter of Mr. andl Mi's. Ben lHoper', died at the home of her parents near' Cross Roads church September 23 and wvas buried at Tabor church the (lay following. The funeral services wvere conducted by R1ev. D). W. Hliott in the presence of many relatives and friends. Ethel was nearly 13 years old andl was a good clhildl. H~errmother said she was so helpful. to her; so kind and( good to) the other children.
