The Largest Contest Ever
With the closing of the contest for t
the beautiful prizes offered by The Sen- g
tinel, there was ended one of the largest t
and most successful events of the kind
ever held in this section. During the
entire eight weeks of the contest c
the contest departmentwas kept buried s
in votes, and as thecloing days began y
to draw near the friends of the contest
ants who wanted the rizes grew more t
anxious and showerevotes on the de- s
partment, and Satay-afternoon the
ballot box was almost ful, and it was i
no small job for the judges to count the s
heavy mass.of little white papers. s
A Main Feature
If there is one class of citizeis more p
interested in the great 'contest just
closed, it is the- bitsiness men and the
general advertisers, who have watched
with interest the weekly increase in
votes made by the contestants, and have
drawn their own conclusions as to the
great increase in cireulation, which
means an added value to their advertise-C
ments. This comes as a natural result,
since the greater number of readers to
The Sentinel adds to the great value of
the paper as an advertising medium.
Largest Circulation in 43 Yer
We are gad to inform the public that1
The Sentie now has the largest circu
lation that it has ever had since .the
paper was established frytree years
ago. We not only boast oftwice the
circulation of any ter paper .in the
county, but are pleased-to-say treare
very few papers ~in the.state itas I
lag a circulation as The Sentinel. t
uring the few weeks of this contest1t
the circulation of The Sentinel has been1
increased one hundred per cent.
Fairness of the Contest
Disinterested parties everywhere,bus
iess men and the contestants them
selves, are praising The Sentinel for the
impartial treatment accorded each con- 1
testant. Everting was done to facil
itate the wor of the contestants and,
their friends, and the result is that
ever ting has turned out in the most
gratifying manner. .
It must be said in recognition of the I
good work done by the contestants that
they devoted themselves heartily to the
cause, and through their efforts the.
public geerall awakened to the fact
that TeSentinel is certainly the paper I
for the home, and today the have hun- I

acted as judges, and who had no con

the invitation of the management to
make a thorough and complete canvass
of the votes. The mere mention of the
names of these gentlemen is assurance
of their integrity. They are well known
and highly esteemed by their business
associates and by all with whom they
come in contact as thorough and honor
able business men.

Mrs. Bogg's' Birthday.
Thursday. March 19, was one
of the happiest days in the long
life of one of Pickens countv's
most noble ;women. On that
day the children of Mrs. Elmira
Boggs, widow of the late Aaron
Boggs. gathered at the home of
A. J. Boggs in Pickens to cele
brate the eighty-fifth birthday
of this grand woman.
It was a surprise affair to Mrs.
Boggs and she knew nothing of
the arrangements until the
children began coming in Thurs
day morning. But it was one
of the most pleasant surprises
she has ever experienced and
her heart was made glad to sit
before the cheerful hearth with
all her children gathered around
her showing expressions of love
For the occasion Mrs. A. J.
Boggs had prepared a dinner
which far surpassed discription.

regret that the inner man was
so easy to satisfy. Never have
people more.thoroughly enjoyed
a repast of any kind. The table
was tastefully and daintily de
corated, a part of the decora
tions being eighty-five burning
candles of many colors-one
for each year of Mrs. Boggs'life.
The life of Mrs. Boggs has
not only been long, but it has
been useful, and in the evening
of her life it niust cause much
pleasure and comfort to be able
to look back over a life so lull
of service for others and forler
Mrs. Boggs is quite active for
a woman of her age and it is the
sincere wish of innumerable
friends that she may live to en
joy many more birthdays.
Members of the family present
were Mr. and Mrs. A. J. Boggs,
