Publishers Will Be
le Forced to Make
Advance in Prices
The piice of all kinds of paper con:
tinues to advance. Indications are that
in spite . of all that - can be done this
country will be hard pushed for any
kind of paper. Our paper houses tell
us that a paper famine is imminent.
The price of print paper has risen so
high as to drive many newspapers out
of business. T'day the price at which
newspapers are sold doesn't anywhere
near pay for the paper in them. News
papers in some way will have to make
up for the additional burden imposed
One instance of the effect the war is
having on the price of paper is that
cellulose, a fibrous ma'tter produced
from cotton, and linen rags and wood
pulp and the basis of all kinds of paper,
is now in great demand by the munition
factories of this country for the manu
r facture of high explosives. Munitions
firms, rushed to the limit to fill war or
ders, are paying fabulous prices for this
material and as a consequence paper
mills have been compelled to keep on
r even terms in order to obtain the neces
e sary supply for the manufacture of
le print paper. The Dupont powder mills,
w for example, have installed a battery of
, beaters with a capacity vastly greater
than the capacity of any paper mill in.
c- the. United States and are paying top
Ls prices for rag stock and commanding
at first choice of this stock from all over
e the country.
it To the printer this means the neces
sity. of advancing his advertising and
circulation prices in proportion to the
i- general advance in the price of paper.
>r He has no alternative and the American
l' i'eading public will have to foot the bill.
o The price of The Sentinel will remain
>r $1.00 just as long as it is possille for us
to send it out, atfthat price, but from
present indications that will not be long.
IFrom the present outlook we will be
r compelled to raise the .price of The
it Sentinel before many days.

a When some future' John Belton
O'Neall writes a 'second "Bench and
Bar of South Carolina," a goodly place
in i.will be accorded to the present
1judge of ,the circuit, the Hon. T. J.
Mauldin,' who is now holding court here.
Judge Mauldin is the youngest wear
i- er of the ermine in the state and is jun
d jor to all the judges of our bench, save
n one, yet he has established -himself in
-the good will and good opinion of the
i- bar generally. He discharges the on
y erous responsibilities of his exalted of

h thality, but in dloing so he displays a
most uncommon tact and patience. Ur
~banity and courtesy -manifest them
selves in all that he' does, From him
come no sharp lenguage, no acidulous
-criticisms, no' dy'speptic fulminations.
'It reay be contempt of- some courts to
so say, but soiitte judges are too prone
to regard themselves as judicIal demi
Sgods. In :Judge 'Mauldin is found a
most aggeable contrast to them--there
is none 'of the surly judicial boor and
bluff and bulldozer about hiim. For he
is ever ready to listen to both sides in
eall reasonable length, never assuming,
Sthe role of om'niaciene.
The future bench of this State is-go
ing to be made up yery largely of men
of Judge Mauldin's temperament. The
