Forty-Three Years Old
Last week The Sentinel en
tered upon the fortv- fourth year
of its existence, which is a good.
long-life for a weekly newspaper.
Though getting up in years, The
Sentinel is in a healthy condi
tion and it bids fair to remain
the chronicler of events in the
State of Pickens until the end of
time. It is now one of the old
est papers in South Carolina.
Many men have been at the
helm of The Sentinel during
these forty-three years. some
with more fortune than others,
and the people of Pickens county
have always supported theii
county paper well. Since its
establishmenl The Sentinel haE
seen many papers born in Pick
ens county-some of which were
good papers -but after brief
struggles for existence they have
all died, save one. There ic
room in Pickens county for twc
good weekly papers, but no more.
There- was a time when q
weekly paper could be nublished
and sold to subscribers for one
dollar a vear,but now a papei
must have a very large numbei
of subscribers to enable it to ex
ist and'charge only a dollar a
v year for subscriptions. Our old
est subscribers have seen the
price of practically everything
advance, except their county
r paper. When the price of cot
. ton was six and eight cents a
r pound the price of the county
paper was one dollar a year.
Now cotton is bringing twice
that price and the price of othei
farm products has increased in
- proportion, but the old Sentinel
makes its weekly visits at the
same old price
A man can not h9pe to make
much mopey-outof a weekly
- newspaver, but there is a certain
ascination about the business
which few people who have tried
it can get rid of, and, then, there
are other things which are worth
far more than money.
The present management has
had charge of The Sentinel only
- about a year and a half, and in
- that time has tried to make the
> paper be of some service to this
county and, its readers. We
have published the best papei
we could under the circum
- stances, and, we say it modest
ly, haye received many compli
3 ments on the paper, every one of
r which we greatly appreciate, and
i every one has helped us to strive
to make the paper better. It is
e our ambition to publish foi
Pickens county the best county
paper in the state.
bThe Sentinel now has the larg
est number of subscribers in its
history, and we wish to thank
our subscribers and advertisers
for the libE ral support they have
given us, and assure them that
Iwe shall always try to give them
their money's worth-and a Itt
tie bit more.
Here's hoping that The Senti

other things we know of, will

Rev. Baylus Cade, of North

benefit, but it has won out.
