The Sentinel wants a few more
correspondents in different sec
tions of the county. We have
ae excellent corps of correspon
dents and we wish to add some
more to it. A letter every week
or two from your community
would be interesting to many of
our readers and would make
your section better known
among our big family of sub
scribers. It would also make
the paper more interesting, help
ing us all arou4d.
Government experts say that
the cotton grown in this section
has a stronger fibre than cotton
grown anywhere else. They
say if the farmers would select
their seed a little more carefully
they could get two cents a pound
more for ordinary cotton than
they are now getting. Wouldn't
two cants a pound extra -for
every pound of cotton raised in
this county mean a great deal?
It's worth an effort.
It has- not been ascertained
for certain, but it is thought that
the earthquake shock felt about
2 o'clock Jaunary 1, was caused
by a general falling off of the
waterwagon in Greenville.
A big headline in the Green
ville Piedmont says, "Rockefel
ler bound for warmer resort."
We don't believe we would have
s3id that about the old man.
As a fellow says, it's only a
week from Christmas to New

A hookworm specialist, who
has been treating this disease in
other counties of this state, will
be in Pickens county at an early
date to examine free all those
who apply to him. He will also
treat all cases free, the state
and county bearing all expense.
Watch The Sentinel for an
nouncement of exact dates.
