PICKE'NS, Q. I
THURSDAY, OCTOBER 19, 1908.
In order that we may have an
opportunity to collect and work
up outside business, and have
our eyes properly treated, we
have engaged the services of Mr.
T. Larry Gantt, the well-known
editor and journalist, to assist us
in the publication of the Senti
nel-Journal, while he is in Pick
ens recruiting his health, hav
ing recently recovered from an
attack of fever, and thinks our
mountain climate will fix him
all right. Mr. Gantt is too
well known to the people of our
county and state to need any in
troduction. For the past year
Mr. Gantt has been looking af
ter his farming interests below
Columbia, and his health was
run down somewhat. He
thinks our invigorating and
health-giving climate is just
what his system requires. In
fact Mr. Gantt says he feels fif
ty per cent. better already.
We shall now make a thor
ough canva' of the county, col
lecting and soliciting new sub
scribers, for we intend to make
the Sentinel-Journal a welcome
and indispensable visitor in eve
ry home not only in Pickens but
Mr. Gaiitt will be of invalua
ble service in advertising Pick
ens to the outside world, as he
contributes to leading and wide
ly circulated newspapers and
periodicals in different parts of
the country. It is his intention
to devotelone day each week to
visiting dlifferent sections of our
count y, as also the neighboring
towvns, andswriting them up in
his characteristic style.
We have long felt the necessi
ty of devoting more attention to
our outside affairs, but could not
find a suitablei person to take
charge of our paper.
Mr. Gant~t expresses himself
as delighted wvith our section, so
far as he. -has seen it, and we
hope he will ibe induced to be
come a permanent citizen.
Hon. Julius Boggs tells us
there is a hickory tree in the
mountains of Pickens county
that wvill measure 75 feet to the
first limb. There is not a knot
or blemish to that height on its
trunk. Mr. Boggs says there
are vast belts of the finest hard
wvood timber in our mountains,
and which some day, not far
distant, wvill be opened to mar
ket and prove more valuable
than gold mines to the fortunate
In order to reach our South At
lantic and Gulf ports, in view
of the completion of the Pana
ma Canal, all the great Eastern
and Middle Western railways
are building Southward. Pick
ens should get to work and cap
ture at least one of these lines.

not be accorded the people o

Mr. Gantt thinks that the sher

permitted to take its course.
