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
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. May
God comfort the hearts of the sorrow
ing loved ones5.
