Like all other good weekly papers of any age The
Sentinel has had many stru gles and has overcome
many obstacles. With the oyal support of the peo

more firmly established than ever before. We will
say here that we appreciate, more than we can tell,
the good support given The Sentinel since it has been
under the present management, and we earnestly T
ask for a continued and greater support in the future
so that we may continue to improve the paper until
the people of Pickens count have the best weekly X
paper in the state. The Sentinel deserves the sup
port of every good citizen in this county, and we can
say with satisfaction that we give all of our custom
iers more than their money's worth.
Under the present management The Sentinel never
has, and never will, appeal to the people for support
on the ground that you should su ort it simpy be

The price of this paper is cheaper now than ever
before. One year ago one bushel of corn or ten
pounds of cotton would pay for The Sentinel a year:
now three-fourths of a bushel of corn or eight pounds
of cotton will pa for it a year. If the price of The
Sentinel had advanced in proportion to all other
