the Press 'until 1840, when Mr. James
H. Giles began the publication of the
Newberry Sentinel, with Gen. A. C.
Carlingtdn as associate editor during
the last two years that he published ,
the paper. It was afterwards sold to!
James M. Crosson and Thomas P. Slider,
who disposed of it to Jos. S. Reid, j
then publishing the Weekly NewberTian,
which was started in 1852. Mr. j
Reid carried out the contracts of the
Sentinel and discontinued it in 1853. j

In 1854 the Mirror was made a triweeJfly,
and a year afterwards Gen. A.
C. Garlington was associate editor. In j

C-onsematist. This paper passed into
of the possession of Col. James D.
Nance and Silas Johnstone, Esq. Soon
after the beginning of the war Col.
Nance volunteered and went with the J
army to Virginia, the paper was dis- j
continued and its publication never
resumed, Col. Xance having been killed
during the war.

continued it in a diminished size until
the close of the war, when it was
published for a short while as a tri- j
Weekly under the name of the New-i
berry Herald. The tri-weekly was dis- j
continued and the paper published for
a Jong time by Messrs. T. F. and R.
H. Greneker. In 1873 the junior partner
withdrew from the paper and
Thos. F. Greneker, the nestor of the,
Newberry press, continued its publication
until failing health caused his
retirement in 1885. During his sole
Ownership of the paper, he had as

Wallace served 011 the paper for aj
length of time.
"On the 14th of February, 1873, Thos.: I
P. Slider began the publication of the |
Progressive Age, a paper devoted j
principally to the development of the
county. It was soon afterwards purchased
by R. H. Greneker, and chang- j
ing the character somewhat the paper
as devoted to ethics in journalism.
