Mrs. H. C. Young Died At Her Home,
Near Liberty
In the afternoon of December 28,
1921, the wife of Mr. H. Cooley
Young passed into that great "bourn
from which no traveler e'er returns."
Julia Townsend Young was born
April 25, 1884, daughter of the late
Mr. and Mrs. Joseph Henry Town
send, of the Flat Rock section. She
and Mr. II. C. Young ' of Lib(Ity
were married December 23, 1903.
He, with eight children-four boys
and four four giirls, the youngest
an infant son of thirteen days-sur
vive her; and the following brothers
and sisters: Mrs. A. A. Adams of
Easley, Mrs. Frank Sheriff of Ca
teechee and J. H. and T. E. Town
send of Liberty.
She joined the Flat Rock Baptist
church in her girlhood.
We cannot understand just why
so devoted a wife and mother should
be thus called, but to the trusting
soul comes the assurance that "He
doeth all things well"-and the hope
of meeting her again "beyond this
vale of. tearas.'
The day following her death the
funeral services were conducted by
Rev. Mr. Anderson of Easley at the
Flat Rock church, after which her
remains were laid to rest in thd
church cemetery.
Lois, the eldest child, and her sis
ter Marie are studefnts in the Lib
erty high shool, Lois having won the
Improvement Medal of the school
last year. A deep sympathy goes out
to' these girls from both teachers
and students. Likewise, the entire
community extends sincere sympa
thy to this bereaved family.

Mr. Phillip Chapman Died At His
H 'me Last Sunday
One by one the old Confederate
soldiers answer the last, long roll
call and more frequent summons
cone as the years go by making the
ranks thinner.
Last Sunday, January 8, Mr.
Phillip Chapman died at his home in
Eastatoe after a few days' illness
of pneumonia. Mr. Chapman was in
his eighty-fifth year of life. He was
a lifelong citizen of Pickens county,
a splendid man and a member of
Antioch Baptist church. He enlisted
in the Confederate army May 1,
1862, in Co. A, Orr's Regiment, and
served until the surrender April 9,
1865. In more than one way he was
a renarkable man. He made a good
crop last year and worked up until
a few days before his death.
His wife, who was a Miss Hinkle
before marriage, preceded him to the
grave- about eleven years. He is
survived by the following children:

B~it for the recent wect weather

Will Ask That All Bootleggers Be
gent 'to Jail
The Pickens W. C. T. U. placed, in
circulation Tuesday petitions for peo
ple of Pickens county to sign askirng
that our county legislative delegation
use its efforts to have the state liquor
laws changed so that convicted viola
tors would have to serve sentence on
chain gang instead of given the pri
vilege of paying a fine.
Following is the wording on the
To the Senator and Representatives
of Pickens County:
We,. the undersigned citizens and
voters of Pickens county hereby re
spectfully petition that you use your
best efforts and endeavors to so amend
the liquor laws of this State as to
eliminate and abolish a fine as part
of the sentence imposed.
We are of the opinion that the laws
as idministered today are ineffective
to prevent'the illegal traffic in liquor
and do not believe conditions will im
prove until the laws are so changed
as to make every violation a misde
meanor punishable by imprisonment
only, and this we earnestly and re
spectfully ask that you do at the ap
proaching session of the Legislature.
