him and couldn't turn him loose.

MR. WLsoN is getting a great deal
of advice just now about how to run

four years. Leave it to Woodrow.

There is no such word as "Xmas" and
it spells nothing. Besides, it is vulgar
to try to make an "X " stand for Christ.

THE following was contributed fo
publication in The Sentinel: "The Cc
lumbia State thought Hughes was th4
winning candidate on Wednesday aftei
the election. A few days later when ii
was found that Wilson was the winnei
the State said it got its informatiori
from the New York papers. We ac
tually thought better of the State. We
never expected nor do we expect any
thing from the North but adverse criti
cism and cold weather."
OUR neighbors just across the line in
the tenth congressional district of North
Carolina have been represented in con
gress the past two years by Mr. Britt,
a republican; but this month they elect
Mr. Weaver, a Democrat, to represent
them. We offer congratulations. North
Carolina's delegation of ten congress
men will all be Democrats next year.
We have often wondered why it is
that the people of Transylvania, Hen
derson, Polk and Rutherford counties
in North Carolina are about half Re
pubiicans, while their neighbors, friends
and relatives, the same kind of people,
who live in the adjoining counties in
South Carolina are all Democrats,
On account of the increased cost of
paper, type, ink, and everything else
that goes into the making of a news
paper, The Pickens Sentinel is forced to
raise its subscription price to $1.50 per
The new rate will go into effect Jan
uary 1, 1917.
In order to give our old subscribers
and friends a chance to remain with us
at the old price we will receive renewal

not, however, allow anyone to pay more
than three years in udvance at the old

Death of Thomas Durham
On the 10th day of November the
entire community and friends elsewhere
were shocked when they learned of the
death of Thomas Durham. He died
with measles, living only a few days
after he was taken ill. He was given
all physical aid that could be summoned,
but none was -ufficient to stay the
monster hand of death. He was 66
years of age and had been a member of
Six Mile Baptist church several years
and was a devout christian. He leaves a
wife and four children to mourn for
The day following his death funeral
services were conducted by Rev. B. C.
Atkinson, after which his body was laid
to rest in the Six Mile cemetery.
In sympathy we say to his loved ones
to look to the giver of all good gifts,
which passeth all our understanding.
May the mantle of his gentleness and
love and loyalty and unwavering faith
and fearless manhood which seemed
only to ripen with the burden of years.
May it fall upon us who knew him and
who loved him because we took note
that he had sat much at the feet of the
Master and had learned of Him; and in
faith and loyalty may each of us in the
great spiritual journey which he served
faithfully and well and without any
turning and wavering; in our last hours
and in all the days till then be like unto
him. J.W. H.
