tain tune "I just can't keep

spoken of, and the Farmers'
Union Is mentioned in connec

paper coming from Greenville,
that hotbed of Union discord
incubators, as is well-known to
every well-informed Union man
In the State, and attempt to
pass as a Union paper, not only
it but all who aid in foisting it
upon the farmers of Pickens, or
any other county, as to that
matter, will be treated with the
utmost contempt by every in
telligent farmer with whom it
comes in contact. A Pickens
County Farmers' Union paper
issued from a city in another
county, and by parties whose
stock in trade so far as the
Union is concerned has been to
rule or ruin, Is not worthy of a
moment's consideration of any
man, ruch less a Union man.

MR. EDITOR:-I notice that
there is a paper to be put out in
Pickens in opposition to the Sen
tinel Journal, because of the
stand the editor has taken in
the recent school trouble. Do
the people .of Pickons.. realize
how that will injure them for
the Sentinel-Journal has helped
to bring Pickens up to her present
prosperous condition. Time and
again has the editor sought to
dissuade the people from sending
money off to these "mail-order"
houses,and advised its readers to
patronize home merchants.
Now these same merchants fire
boycotting him. For what?
Simply because he did not toler
ate the unmerciful beating of a
little child, and for denouncing
favoritism among teachers. Be
cause a part of -the patrons say
the school is all right, is no sign
that all get justice. Perhaps
they are on the favored list. If
you hear of a man who has hy
drophobia, and you say "I dont
believe it, for I have never been
bitten", does that provethere is
no mad dog? Oh nol And be
cause liquor has never caused
you nor yours trouble, is that*
,any sign that it is not an evil?
Come, friends, let us reason to
gether awhile, and suppose the
case reversed, and little George
Edens had 'torn, scratched, or:
bitten-for he couldn't whip-'

black and blue would ydu, now,
truthfully, would you have

Isaidl the editor did'nt use too
ston language, nor use too large'
head line in his article. .No, and
if either one of those children

goods for tine to conT)C. How
many children have had to suffer1
because their parentrs were not
trustees or they did'nt happen
to be a favorite. IT know whereof
I speak, and I .role the senti
mont of hundreds of children
miud their parents when I say
he Sentinel-Journal should re
selve words of praise Instead of
1ensure for what he has said.
As for boycotting the Sentinal
Fournal, that's a game several
3an play at, as there are more
nerchants to trade with than
hose who seek to put the editor
)ut of business; more physicians
han one you can call when you
1eed their services. The mer
,hants of Pickens have digged a

hey will surely fall In them
ielves-watch and see.
Well, now brother farmer, are
rou going to be a catspaw In
his most contemptible business
>f boycotting? I think not, for
;he editor gives the farmers un
on space free, and if you do not
use it, he is not to blame. The
rarmers are-so far as I have
4eard-standing shoulder to
ihoulder with the editoi in his
roubles, not that they believe
xe does right at all times-for
who does, but he has never tried
o put another man out of busi
iess,and although he will sustain
;emporary loss, yet I verily be
ieve that he will come out more
;han conqneror, for truth will
iot :e downed.
I predict for the paper to be
stronger than ever "when the
Aouds have rolled away". Sev
3ral have said that if the boy
,otters send them their paper
bhey will surely send it back, a
rate it surely deserves.
Let us hear from the Sentinel
Journal's correspondents on this

wrhat you think the possible out

ournal imust not, cannot, vill
