THURSDAY, MAY 14, 1908.
THE SENTINEL editor and the
correspondents have all had a
fling at thei boycott and said
their say; it is not manly to fight
a man when he is down and we
should, under those circum
stainces, be fair, so lot us all drop
the subject and devote our best
energies to making this truly
more of a comnty paper than it
has ever been before and push
every section of this grand old
county to the front.
1)iscuss farming, education,
religion, politics, social evils, or
whatever vise will be for the,
best interests of the county at
large. The towns of the county
and every section, every school
district, and every cross roads,
should have a correspond(lenjt.;
we want some one from each
place tosend us the news. Lets
build up the paper and the coun
ty on more broad and liberal
lines thai ever before.
On ward, Upward, Forvard!
is the slogan. Everybody take
up the cry.
JUSTICE AND FAIR PLAY.
This has been the motto of
this paper at all times and the
editor has lried to live up to it.
He has always played fair and
told the truth, and "let the chips
fall where they may."
In the communication last
wepk. -fi'om Pea Ridge, "Red
Mfose" says: "There is one can
didate, I suppose, who signed
the boycott," etc. Now, there
is no name called, but a great
many people are of the opinion
that this -alludes to R. R. Roark,
who is 4i candidate for the office
of Sheriff. In justice to Mr.
Roark, we must say from what
we knowv of him, we do not be
lieve that. he signed any such
paper, besides we have it author
itatively from our personal
friends who are really in a po
sition to. know, that he is not
guilty of this charge.
Good Liquo' and Pleasant Dreams.
As there is no one visiting in
our neighborhood the mention
of whick, would interest your
readers, I will wvrite on another
One of; my friends fixed a
field of eight acres for oats. He
hauled out' an immense quan
tity of fhie manure and broad
casted it over some of the finest
land in Pickens county, and
turned it about two inches deep
with a 'steel-beam plow, and
then driled~ in his oats with
about two aftcks of fertilizer per
acre, and said1 to me, "If those
oats don't ,grow higher than
your haMd I can cut them on
that land, cari't I?" I asked
him if he reckoned he would
g6t a hand that could pull a cra
dle through them. "Sh!" he
said, "we may not have a good
oat year!" Now, if all the farm..
ers were like him-fix things
right and not expect too much
they wouldsvre cary their point.

But my friend did more than
that-he gave me a good drink
f good liquor and some to carry
home. It must have been good
stuff, because I dreamed that
night that I was elected gov
3rnor of South Carolina and was
preparing my message. I was
brimming things, leaving no
lead limbs nor burdensome
bwigs. I was just rennovating
bhe statue book to perfection,
when my mail was laid on the
table before me, and tli first
bhing I saw was In a Georgia

I said some time back that
cotton wouldn't get any higher.
Well, it hasn't, but I've changed
my mind. I believe now we'll
have much higher prices. Thou
aiids of bales will be held for
15c. I am not a Union man,
but I'm in favor of their move
nient, as it was forced on them.
The labor unions put up labor,
the manufacturers put up goods,
and the old peasants were com
pelled to organize, and they have
not fixed the price too high.
Thousands of farmers will
hold to their cotton. Non
Union as well as Union are go
ilg to hold, and it may cause a.
standstill- it. may even termi
nate worse, but the old peasants
are not to blame.
The Union should have fixed
a definlit-e time to take 15c. I
am sure if I could buy a horse
at a set price I would wait until
I needed it. The advice I give the
farmers is to fix their land like
my friend fixed for his oats, and
then not expect too much, and
you will come out 0. K. in the
end, regardless of brains and
money. M. W. HEsTER.
