As there seems to be so much
-onfusion in the town of Pick
mns--and not the town only, but
bhe entire county-I thought I
wvould write a few words, if you
would publish them.
Every where you go the peo
ple say, " "What about the Pick
ems trouble?" Now, Mr. Editor
and readers, there is somebody
in error. While I will not try to
say who the parties are, it seeTms
that the fire was kindled about
I r severe whippig of a student
by one of the teachers in the
Now, if the child was whipped
Is the S.-J. gives it, it is a.
shiame on a teacher to discipline
L student as keenlv with the
rod as the report has it; and the
'onduct of the teacher will re
Act sooner or later. And if hIe
litor of the S.-J. in vivilng -16
hie publiC. am outll of the
)ai lafge(aate , s to details,
.nd did not do justico to the
b)oard of trustees, then that is
bad for the public to be misin
rormed by the editorii:al i the
TouRNAL, ant the colduct of
ie editor will react sure.
And if the business men of
;he town of Pickens have')ovcot
ed the S.-J. and taken their
)usiness ads. out of the paper
~vithout a full knowvledge of the
fact that the S. -J. editor was in
rror, I think their action was
anwise, and their action will re
xct as sure as5 the world stand~s.
Now, to the people of Pickens
zounty, and all concerned in the
welfare of edlucation, and all
business of the people:-I ask
all that have had anything to
dlo with this trouble to just think
a moment and ask yourself the
rquestion, ''Have I (lone unto
athiers as I would have them do
to me?"' And if you find you
have niot, and see where you
have failed, just make it right,
and the whole matter w;ill be
adjusted and everything will he
I[ wish the school success, and
the JOURNA L editor success, and
the business men of the town
mapeed Svrlthings have
apndthat seem to me not
altogether' true -Ame(rican.
WTith best wishes for all.

The weather has been very
b~ad -.Ior f~arm work for the last.
few days, but if nothing hap
pens everything will be all right
for the farmers, for they work
like busy bees.
Mrs. D. E. Hendricks, *of this
section, who fell some time ago
and broke her arni, is getting
along as w~ell as could be ex
Cleve Davis and Eid. Harris

day with Will Freeman, of -this
section. The boys had a fine.
D. E. Hendricks, who has
been on the sick-list for some
time, is not any better at this
Mr. Editor, how many of
your correspondents are chiceron
cranks? I am for one. i - 1
have never had anythin;:
with the business, for I
be like the little boy was when
the old gentleman asked him if
his i otlier raised much poultry.
He replied that she planted a,
right smart, but the chickens
scratched it up. So I might
plant chicken seed and the poul
try might scratch them up.
I thinlik Pickens must be on a
boom. She is going to have
two newspapers soon. One of
thei, the Pickens News, is be
ing published at Greenville for
the present. The nierchants .
seem to have found out the bei
efit of their ads in the SENTINRL
JornNAL at last by using their
influence to get a new paper
started. They also seem to
have a real spite at the S.-I. for
good. But I think the old pa
per has the svmipathy of a good
many country people.
So hoping for the success of
the S.-J. and its editor, I will
ring off.. STONEwA..
