Prohibliton a Farce in Charlotte
Since the 8th day of July
18,787 whisky prescriptions hav
been filled by the Charlotte drui
stores. Putting the averag
charge of the doctors for wril
ing prescriptions at 40 cent
each, this will show that th
abolition of the bar-rooms ha
added to their incomes during
period of less than six mionthi
just $7,518.80, or a yearly avel
age of $15,937.60.
Placing the amount purchase
on each prescription at 80 centi
this' -will show that the dru
stores have done a whisky bus
ness in that same length of tinm
of $15,037.60, or an annual trad
of $30,075.20. Combining thee
amounts paid to the doctors an
the drug stores, it will sho'
that $45,112.80 aro spent annm

These figures will show the

To R F 0 Patrons
< The postmaster at Pickens de
sires to call attention to the
. practice of some patrons of rural

their boxes each time they de

8 of supplying themselves with
postage in advance of their
i This practice imposes undue
hardship on rural carriers in re
f moving loose coins from boxes
e and delays them on the service
f of their routes.
i The postmaster, therefore, ur
t gently requests that patrons of
t rural delivery provide theni
1 selves and keep on hand a sup
ply of stamps consistent with
and in advance of their needs.
It is also very desirable that ru
r ral patrons place in their mail
boxes small detachable cups of
wood or tin in which to place
t coins, when necessary, in pur
chasing supplies of stamps.
According to Washington ad
vices President Finley, of the.
Southern Railway Co., stafes
"that, in view of the falling off
in business, and the decrease in
e revenues, the management of
the Southern Railway Company
t has determined, as a- step in its
progress of reducing expenses,
to put into effect Feb. 1, 1908,
a reduction of ten per cent. in
the pay of the president, vice
president and the other general
officers, and their office forces."

American heiresses, or mil
r lionaires, who are inclined to
give away a considerable por
tion of their hard-earned 0)
cash for the privilege of marry

up In an international divorce
scandal, will find an obstacle in'
their way, if a. bill introduced
in-the house-by Mr. Sabath, o#
;Pennsylvania, should become a
law. Likewise, foreign noble
(1) men who have wasted their
substance in riotous living and
seek to replenish their funds by
marrying rich American girls,
will find the plan not quite so
profitable as formerly it has
Mr. Sabath's bill, which was

The Poultry Convention
At a meeting of the Poultry
Association, held recently, in
their club room, a very enthusi- p
astic meeting was held, and 01
most of the old officers were re
elected. It was resolved to
make the association a perma- 8
nent one, with an annual elec- u
tion of officers. Many new
names were added to the list and
more members were promised. h
After hearing the report of the cl
3ecretary and treasurer it was d
found that there was something 0
Dver $6 to the credit of the club, ."
which was a pretty good show- r(
ing for a first show in as f
small a.town as is Pickens. At H
the next show, which will be
held to-day, at 3 p. m., in the n
business office of the SENTINEL
JOURNAL, a good meeting is
antiipated, and each ieiber.
is dwged to be present and bring d
a n4w member. 14
The association is a county j
rganization, and any one, any
where in the county, who raises
improved chickens, pigeons or a
pets, is urged to become a mem- F
ber and help to make this a per- 3
manent and finencial success. C
1t has been decided to work
for a fine poultry show and
county fair this fall, and it will
be a success, when such m1en as e
Messrs. 0. P. Field, B. F. Par
sons, A. J. Barnes, George H.
Hendricks and others lend their
aid and assistance to the enter- t
prise. A good many people i9
have expressed a willingness to f
help, and a desire to join, the
association, and-now is the time
for them to send in their names.
At the meeting this Thursday h
evening the time of the next P
meeting will be set, which will "
be published next week. t
From now on. a department h
devoted to poultry will be a reg
ilar feature of this paper, and
therein will be found the pro
eedings of this association and
Oimely articles on poultry in it

Dear Sir: I note that In your
account for support of U. S. h
prisoners, etc., that during the
September quarter you had four
U. S. prisoners and not a visit
for them by a physician, anda
that for the Decenmber quartera
just ended you had four U. 8.
prisoners, with only one visit,I
making for eight prisoners con- I~
fined in your jail the last six a
months, only one visit by a phy-a
siclan, which indicates that you
have the healthiest climato in:
the country and that you keep!
a clean andl well-regulated jail.~
This is, indeed, a very uinu-J
sual record1 for the support of
U. S. prisoners. I
