OUR CHRISTMAS EDITION.
Sincc the consolidation of the Sentinel and the Journa
making the larger and more effective newspaper called th<
Sentinel-Joirnal, our progress materially has been such as t(
justify our original hopes that the town of Pickens have a news
paper that will prtoe a credit, not only to its place of publica
tion an(I to its management, but to the community and th<
county at large which support it. At a considerable outlay, w1
have added to the already well-e(quij)ped office and now th<
material at our com mand is equal to any possible emergency
Our patrons, recognizing the unusual efforts we have beet
making, have come forward in response to ou1r calls-many o
them volumn tarily--and given us substantial aid and encou rage
imlent by inceting their tdies and speaking their appreciation o
Ihe (chief aim-the controlling principle-has been t4
merit this liberal patronage, and, with each succeeding month
we are encollragIed to more thorough effort in progressiv4
journalism, while we have, as a part of our reward-a most ap
preCiat(I part-the hearty en(orsement of our subscriber
and our adlvertising patrons.
We want to show our appreciation of the many courteou
and kindly words that have been spoken and written to us in
way that will represent us in every home where the Sentinel
joirnal finds a warm welcome each week.
We are sen(ling to each suibscriber-not one is omittet
-our Christmas nim lber. It is printed on good book pape
that will last till the children who now read it are grown anc
heavy with years, if reasonable care is taken of it, and it is fille.
'With reading matter choice and chaste, especially adapted t(
this happy season of the year when the hearts and minds of al
are filled with hapiness born of the glorious occasion-Ch rist.
The illustrations have point and are effective in helping
to impllress the young and inexperienced reader with the force
andl object of thme text presenlted. All of this costs money.
The illustrations cost-the paper costs, and the additional me.
chanical work represents toil and care and that strict technical
application, without which a newvspaper could not succeed. It
all costs money. Few people umnderstand the ceaseless "'grind"
of a newspaper office. D)o readers often stop) to think of the
continued application of the printers as they toil, (lay alter day,
p)atiently building each week their limits of' work in ''galleys"
ol type from a mass of' leaden pieces all thrown together so
that none but a printer could tell themn apart? Printers are
feeling beings, just as other people. They growv tired and
weary, julst as others do. They entertain hopes and have
pleasuires just as others do. They have families and theylook~
forward to the coming glad days of Christmas, and into this
spmecial edition of our newspaper, our printers and the edlitom
and all the force emp)loyed on The Sentinel-Journal have throwrm
their hearts, and this artful production relpresents our labors
it is the sum~ of our special endeavors-it is spiritualized, as i
were, with our diligent efforts b~y which we have made oui
natures express themselves.
Wer know the patrons applreciate all this. It was not nec
essary to even allude to the denials of the printers to insure
for ourselves, in the heart of every constant reader of oui
p~aperm, a I ull and sincwere applreciation of our efforts in the
newspaper line, especially since the consolidation in the early
p~art of 1 9o3.
And, wvhile speaking a word in behalf of' our owvn enter
prising undertaking andl ouri every-day strivings to meet the
expectations of our patrons, we wvantI to say a word in behal
of our advertisers.
'When you read an adIvertisemnent, you can alnost mecas
ure the soul of the man or' form a just estimate of the firn
wvhose name is signed to the advertisement. The most profit.
able liberality in the butsinless wvorld is that which proclaim.
itself through the medium of " Printer's Ink."' The merchants
never give .things away-that wvould be simply foolish-butI
they (d0 find bargains wvhen they lay in their stocks, for bar.
gains are poss5ible to merchants who are always in touch wvith
the sen:;itive business wvorld.
The merchant wvho advertises is a friend to the buyer. I1
is not his pu1rpose~ to induce the prospective purchaser to 'buy
against his will, but it is his privilege to show his goods, to
present them to the buying public, and, through the medium
of a thoroughly circulating newspaper, like The Sentinel-Jour
nal, show to the buying public that he is an earnest competitor
in the strenuous world of trade. The advantage inures, at
last, to the buyer most. So much goods vill be sold at all
events, and, if the buyer knows where to get what he wants,
he will go there to buy. The merchant and the purchaser are
both thereby benefitted.
ie are grateful to our advertisers in this issue, and in the
general course of business for their generous contributions to
the success of this undertaking. Its successs is, in a great
measure, due to their liberality in this respect, and to
every reader we b!;p ak for every adverisement
utter sincerity, and for every advertiser the str'ct busi
ness honor and faith thit characterizes every merchant or busi
ness concern whose interests are, in this way, committed to our
keeping. Thi -y have gone into this issue, paying fir space
and telling of their business and theiir offers, because of their
belief in the merits of an honest, faithful )resentation of their
business in the way of legitim ate advertisement. The follow
ing are spec'al advertisers who.n we introduce to the Pickens
county people. Tbey ha\ e not heretofore been regular adver
tisers with u;, but each one has a message for you, so read
their adverti:ements-they will interest you. Carpenter Bros.,
B1ruce & Doster are drug concerns unexcelled in South Caroli
na. Finley Bros. tell you of hay, grain and feed, while J. T.
Arnold, Cash Co. and the Bates-Pearson-Griffin Co. tell ycu
of dry goods and grocerie', resj)ecti'ely. Bert fluuman runs
an excellent restaurant where all good people may regale
themse'ves with the finest meals. All the ablove are of Green
Ville, S. C., while Messrs lBridge s and 11ammond, Dealers in
General Mechandise, and W. H. Jo'mson, Dealer in Sewing
Machines, Nusical Instruments and all things in the novelty
line are new advertisers right here in Pickens
The following are regular ad i'ertiser-s that have taken
larger spaces in which to present their stocks in a creditable
f way to the public. They have their stores )acke(l with holi
day goods and we ask you to be sure to read their ads before
you come to buy. They need no introduction, and are too
well known to need any comment from us, and their establish
ed reputations are sufficient warrant for the CNepctation of fair,
liberal treatment when you visit their stores. They are as fol
