THURSDAY, OCTOBER 8, 1908.
A great many of our readerE
may wonder why they missed
their papers last week. There
are several reasons. It used tc
be customary, and is yet to some
extent, for the weekly press tc
take holiday-skip an issue-on
Christmas week. Of late years
"legal" advertising prevented
THE SENTINEL-JOURNAL from in
dulging in this time-honored cus
tom, and the editor has it to his
credit that he has never failed
to get out the paper some way
and some how, ever since he has
been connected with it.

and long on job work which had

machinery needed some repairs,
and a shipment of paper failed
to reach us on time for our reg

are 53 (Thursdays) publication
days in this year (and we only
give 52 papers for a dollar) and
as a ,consequence we had to cut
out one somewhere.
These are some of our reasons
for not issuing last week. Any
of them are good ones, so take
