The Sentinel is not responsible
for the views of its corres
The Sentinel is always glad
to publish tributes of respect
and articles in memory of de
.parted ones, but we must insist
that they be reasonable in length
so as not to take up so much
space as to crowd out other
articles we wish to publish. It
is a nice custom, we think, to
pay your respects to the dead in
this way and we are willing to
encourage the custom so long
as our friends do not impose
upon us by taking up too much
space with one article. 100 to
200 words is a liberal allowance
for these tributes, Send in
your tributes, but limit them to
Build Better Houses.
We have recently talked with
some of our large land owners
about the condition of the coun
try, the scarcity of labor etc.
These good men volunteered to
give us some reasons why so
many people were leaving the
farms and going to the mills.
We mention the following.
The tenant houses on many of
the farms are not fit for people
to live in, and a good man with
a family, especially a family of
girls, before he will try to live
on a farm and raise his children
in a house with no conveniences
and with no comfort, he will go
to the mill where he can get a
good house. We believe it
would pay our land owners to
build good houses and vet the
best people to cultivate their
lands. We all know that some
of our very best people have
never owned any land of their
own, but are among our best
farmers. A man's property
does not make him, it is the
principle that makes the man.
We know of some churches and
schools almost ruined because a
__ few men around own property
and instead of building good
houses and getting good white
men to live in the community
and build up the churches and
schools, they let negroes live in
their old run-down houses and
butcher their lands because
they are not willing to pay out
money to build good houses or
because they think they can
make more out of the negro,

but even if they can get more
money out of the negro for the
money invested, they ought to
think of the condition of their
land after it has been butcher
ed a few years than to think
about the moral and intellect
ual and spiritual condition of
the community. We know of
one community where the land
owners have built good houses
and they have the very best
class of citizens making ' )d
churches and schools.
The Lyceum course r t Pickens
was not a financial success this
winter. The inclement weather
curtailed the attendance. Not
many season tickets were sold,
and the gate receipts were smalL
Pickens, nor any other town
in the county, does not need
the Lyceum attractions. They
are an expensive luxury. The
same energy and money used
in the development of local tal
ent would furnish better enter
tainment, and pay a much bet
ter dividend. All .we need is
two good managers, one to take
charge of the boys and girls and
one to take charge of the men.
Form two entertainment or edu
cational clubs to have their
meetings twice a month and
search out the talented in each
and about four times a year
these two combine to give an
entertainment. They could
discuss or debate live questions
of local interest, present dramas,
recite dialogues and intersperse
the proceedings with lively
music. Every one who helped
would feel that he was helping
himself, his family, his friends
and his town. All would soon
catch the sririt of the hive.
The life and joy of the bee is to
work with the others, for the
rest. He has a sting for those
who would take from the hive.
There is an abundance of
local talent to do this work well,
if we can find some one with
the rare talent to organize and
not handicapped with a desire
to stay in the limelight.
On January 14th God in his
wisdom saw fit to take from its

Dear Louvina; I once more
this blessed Sabbath morning
take the opportunity to write
you a few lines to let you know
that I am svell at this time. I
hope this will find von doing
well. We are still at this c nimp

health has been better for some
time than usual. I have been
very hardy of late and can eat
as much bread and meat as any
dog and I could eat something
else if I could get it. but that is
all we can get. I have quit
drinking coffce. for we can't
get sugar and it. is not. good
without sugar. i just eat bread
and meat, we get beef five days
and bacon two days in a week.
We can get some little desserts
by paying three prices for them.

hope for a hereafter where we
may again find those loved

Many of us are unable to find
any satisfactory evidence upon
which to base a belief that snech
hopes for a future life will ever
be realized. Yet the beli(ef of
others as to a hereafter is to me
a matter of inditferene. While
I do not care to dlestroy anyone's

We have life that leaves the
