last week was observed through

comfortably filled, and after the
invocation, the singing of the
Bonnie Blue Flag, Dixie and
music by the Pickens Band, the
Rey. J. 0. Bailey, pastor of the
Presbyterian church and speaker
for the occasion was introduced
and for an hour delighted the
people with a splendid address.
He paid a glowing tribute to
Gen. Jackson as the ideal man
of physical and moral ' courage.
He pictured the horrors and
suffering, and carnage resulting
from war, and plead for the es
tablishment of a tribunal which
would settle all national and in
ternational disputes without re
sort to arms.
At the conclusion of the ad

It Pays to' Advertise
As aln evidence that it pay:
to ,,advertise attention is caller
to the award of the articles of
fered to the highest bidders by
Hammond- Brown-Wall Co., of
Easley, in an Advertisemeni
which this firm has been run
ning in The Sentinel for aboul
two months. If you will refer
to last week's or any previous
issue of this paper within the
last two months you will notice
that this firm offered a piano,
an organ, a sewing machine, a
steel range and a victor talking
machine to the one making the
highest bid on or before 11
o'clock May 10th. The only
condition was that the bids
should be written, sealed and
marked and addressed to them,
and these would be opened by a
disinterested committee after
the above date and the awarde
made to the ones making the
highest bid, who was obligated
to take the article bid on and
pay for same.
The time was up last Satur
day and on Monday the com
mittee met, opened the bids and
made the awards, as follows.
The highest bidder for the
piano was H. J. Waif, Athens,
Ga. For the organ, L. A.
Perry, Easley. For the sewing
machine, Leroy Winchester,
Twin Bi'dges, Montana. For
the steel range, J. M. Robinson,
Columbia, S. C. For the \ictor
talking machine, L. H. Pratt,
Twin Bridges, Montana.
This is the most convincing
proof that it pays to advertist
and especially in The Sentinel,
It is seen from this that people
in Pickens County. in South
Caiolina., in Georgia and in fat
Montana read The Sentinel and
read the advertisements in it.
It is the best advertising mediun
in the County and' Its readers
are not limited to this county
but are to be found in almost
every county in this State and
in'almost every State.
Everyone who has anything
for sale or exchange could not
find a better way of disposing
of it than by the judicious use
of a little printer's ink through
the columns of The Sentinel. It
will pay you. Try it.

country people to cover the
field of advancement and prog
ress in its truest sense. In order
to accomplish this each person
interested must sacrifice some
time and energy. In view of
this fact, aro you willing to sac
