To Sentinel-Journal Subscribers.
Under a recent ruling of the
Postal Department newpapers
are now only. permitted to be
sent to subscribers through the
mails for a limited period unless
paid for In advance, and the
publisher who violates this order
lays himself liable to being ar
rained before a U. S. court and
punished, the same as any other
Now, the Sentinel-Journal has
carried over many of Its subscri
bers to the utmost time limit al
lowed by law. , We have done
this because we knew our far
mers had no money to spare be
fore their crops matured, and it
pains us indeed to drop from our
list names of parties who have
proved such true and loyal
frionds as the masses of the peo-I
ple of Pickens county showed I
themselves to be the Sentinel

Of course none of our good
friends want the proprietor of
the -Sentinel-Journal to plac'e
himself liable to prosecution, but
thisi. just. what we shall do If
we continue to mail our paper-t.i
those in arrears.s We- - do not
want to lose a single one of our
old .pptrons, but ask~ them to go
to .work for us and get all pf

proceed to make a canvas df the

One day last wveek my esteem
ed friend Hon. Julius Bogga
took me on a drive over PIckens
and .out into the county a few
miles, that I mi.ght see the town
and take in.some of the sublime
News for which this sectioni Is
famous. Since smy childhood
days I have heard about this
beautiful town and.county-the
hospitality of its people and the
gi'andeur of its mountain chain.
But after. a week's sojourn in
Pickens I can truly exclaim that
the half has not been told. I
have seen neai'ly every sec
tion of our country except the
Pacific slope, and I do assert that
;there is nothing eatst .of. the
Rocky Mounttains that can com
,ar e with this county; and were

formed of M tipuous n

knobs below the Southern rAil
way,circling arourid so as to em
brace the Pinnacle, the highest
elevation in our state, and then
bending again,'outhward with
an extended chain linked togeth
er, completing the girdle at
Boggs mountain. And - in the
heart of the gigaitic basin thus
formed is located the lovely little
'city of Pickens, embowered in a
grove of forest trees, among
which meander crystal streams,
and its num -us heights crown
ed with cos- 2ottages and impo
sing homes, many of which
would do credit to the residence
section of any great city. And
not only is Pickens one of the
most delightful places t of , resi
dences on the face of our globe,
b5ut it is the gateway through
which a mountain trade, exten
ding far; back into Western
North arojina,.must pass.
But I am wadering from my
subject, for when one attempts
todescribe this beautiful -and
romantic section his ,pen runs
wild. Mr. Boggs contends that
this vast basin, rimmed with
mountains, was doubtless,, in
pre-historic times, a vast inland
lake, but during some convul
sion of nature a chasm and out
let was rent in the barrier at Ca
teechee, and through which its
waters were permitted to escape,
leaving one of the most charm
ing spots of land in our state. To
confirm Mr. Boggs' theory, beds
of water-worn p6bblessare found
throughout this basin. T. L. G.
