PICKENS, S. C.:
TIIURSDAY, DECEMBER 24, 1908.
THE COST-PRICE SALE.
The SENTINEL-JOURNAL editor
has no desire or intent to engage
in a mud-slinging contest with
any other paper. It employs
our entire time to l(ok after our
own business so wt. have made
it a rule to let other people's
affairs severely alone.
When a man must resort to
personal abuse in reply to a ra
tional controversy, he is either
uttrlv void of mental ability or
)hs a very weak cause to defend.
/ Inl the last issue of the Easley
.1Progress its editor makes a des
perate attempt to fix malice and
inlconsi-stenlcy (n this paper.
Mr. O'Dell has even gone to
the trouble of making a lengthy
aliiavit in ordner to bolster up
the Easley Progress. It was not
necessary for Mr. O'Dell to
swear to his statements for, his
simple statement. would have
been acce)ted for truth by all
who knov that gentleman.
Any one who wvill CAR'FULLY
read Mr. O'Dell's affidavit will
readily see that so far from dis
proving any :iteme n ..tk by
this paper, it ,onhlaaw .
reiterates and strengthens every
line published in the SEN'rINE.

ens does Iot figm-r in this con
tr, v for he. is not~ the Iinal

officer wNas Imnbilcss un11der the
imipressionl that, the sale called
'cst sal\' was conducted by an
other party than Mr. O'Dell the
purchaser, ()f the Roark stock of
goods. That being the case it
is p erfoc tly clear that he was li
' bile to a tax of 85' per day, and1
had aos M!r. O'De)ll seen fit to
dlismiliss this muan and conducted
the sale in person this tax would
have been exactedl and collected
but when Mr. O'Dell~ appeared
be(forle our council'and explained
his conlnectionl with this sale not
a member of council bt knew
he was doing a legitimate bunsi
ness the same as any other mer
chant in Pickens and we will
further add that Mr'. O'Dell did
not dleny in his afhidavit that he
pub)licly endorsed this act of our
town authoril i's and stated that
he would intr'oduce a similar or..
(ilnance for his owvn towvn.
And the Easley Progress fur
t.her' sta'ted that Mr. O'Dell met
with great success in Pickens
and his bank account was swel
led by 54,200. If this be true ho
has cer. ainly not cause for griev
ance maainst the Sentiel-Jour
nal or its editor, for we have no
ideai tha;t any two of the lar'gest

are satisfiedowith our field and
our sphere and have no desire to
pull down or Injure the Easley
Progress or any neighboring pa
per. We are not seeking con
troversies with rival papers for
they can accomplish no good
whatever. . The Easley Progress
is not the slightest in the way of
the Sentinel-Journal and we are
careful not to trespass on the
domains of that paper. We have
a high regard for Mr. O'Dell,
both as a gentleman and a busi

It has been our unaerstanding that
there had been a law passed prohibiting
the sale of cannon crackers and like dy
namite explosives in the state, for tlio
use of Young America in his holiday
festivities. If so, s>me merchant has
broken over, as the celebrating act has
broken out here rather prematurely for
a well regulated town; and if continued
the remainder of this month it will be
come an intolerable nuisance. and pec

Sv(S are thrown around inaiscriminate
ly, and without any restraint or respect
for the public welfare.
