I have sold my interest in The Pick
ens Sentinel Co., and on October 1 will
be succeeded as editor and manager of
this paper by Mr. W. L. Matheny.
I took charge of The Sentinel 'six
years ago and my stay in PicKens has
been very pleasant. The people of
this county have been good to )Ie, over
looking my shortcomings to a great
extent and encouraging me in other
ways. I want you to know that I ap
preciate your goodness to mne.
To the paper's regular correspon
(Jents and others who have lielped me
to make The Sentinel a readable paper
I ai deeply grateful. Without their
hel) tle papler would not have suc
cv(eded as well as it has.
When I came here six years ago The
Sentinel was not a paying business for
the stuckholders or those who made the
paper. I ain glad t) say that I leave it
paying the ,,tockholders a reasonableye
tuiI on tihe mone1y i nveste( and the

Ish tm of its forty-wevenl ycars of, exist

properties I know of in any town the
size of l'ickens.
I L would please me to see the paper
grow and prosier and I bespeak for it
a continuance of the loyal SUppor L given
1 must say that the stockholders of
the publishing company have been most
kind and generous to me. They are
among our best business men and it
has been a pleasure to deal-with them.
Mr. Matheny, the new editor and
manager, is no stranger to the people
of Pickens county. He is an experi
enced newspaper man and has been
connected with The Sentinel before.
For the past several years he has been
bookkeeper for Folger, Thornley & Co.,
and clerk of the county board of com
missioners. lie willi make a good paper
and I hope those who have been friends
of the paper during my management
will continue so.
I have no definite plans for the
future, and you know what our Uncle
Sam says about a man without a job.
With ill will toward none, but love
for all, GARY HIOTT.
B. B. Gilstrap
On Tuesday, September 10, we were
greatly shocked an() saddened when the
news was heralied thru the community
that Bro. B. B. Gilstrap had pasied
into the great beyond. "Uncle
Bense, " as he was familiarly called,
hadi been in failing health for a numn
ber of years, but wvas taken sick about
four weeks ago, growing worse on
Monday night. His funeral was held
the following day at Pickens View
Wesleyan Methodist church, of which
he had been a loyal member for the
last five ye(ars. Services were con
ducted y his ormer astor,Re.D
0. P'owers, assistedl by his nephew,
R~ev. Levi Rigdon, in the presence of a
large company of relatives andi friends.
Not only is he missed in the home, but
in the church and Sunday school; his
voice is missed by pastor, and especially
by superintendent and scholars in the
study of the lesson. Not long before
his death he testiffed many times of
being ready and willing to go.
Bro. G.ilstrap who was the son of the
late Hardy G;ilstrap, was sixty-nine
years of age. lie had been twice inar
ried, the first time to Miss Vesta Reed.
Of this union the following children
suirvive: ,John S.. W. L,., Joab, Hardy
and Joseph \Vyatt His second wife,
whose maiden name was Miss Lucretia
lhous, also survives. Besides these
lhe leaves three sisters anid three broth
era. To the bereaverd relatives we ex
tend our sympathy. I .et us all so) live
that when our' summons comes we can
say with Paul : "I1 have. fought a good1
light; I have finished may cours-e; I have
kept the faith."
Pickens Baptist Association
Owing to an error in the minutes of
the Pickens Association, there is some
confusion as to the time of the next
meeting. The association will meet on
Wednesday, October 16th, 1918 at the
Pickens church. Let all the ciiurches
send a full delegation.

'liece comes a time in every boy's
life 'lhen he wants a goat.
Blease seeis to have carried four
counties-Aiken, Clarendon, Pitkens
and Saluda. Wonderahow he managed
to carry Pickens?
The fact that weireceived no copy of
The Pickens Sentinel thislweek leads
us to believe that Editor Gary lliott
has been bitten by a snake.
V'e Move Nominations Close
The State Press Association being
without. a chaplain, Editor Gary lliott
of The Pickens Sentinel is hereby
placed in nomination.
To Readers or Papers?
Anderson Daily Mail.
The editorial page of the Pickens
Sentinel last week was filled with ad
vertisements, which, as it rule, are
more profitable than editorials.
We hope Watson Bell, Gary Hiott,
Rion McKissick, Harold Booker, Jim
Hamel and Rev. Sam Creech will all be
interned before Wednesday, Septen
ber 18th, as we would like to see one
meeting of the Press Association un
disturbed by rowdyism.
Good Old Ed H.
Buttermilk Booker of the Columbia
Record will be here (also the widow
and orphan) so Dairymen Austell and
lBlack had best prepard to take care of
him. They need not, however, go to
any trouble to take care of Watson
Bell, Gary Hiott, Jim Hamel, Rion Mc
Kissick, George Brown and Rev. Sam
T. Creech, as we will look to another
source for them.
Where Is She?
Gary Hiott wants to know what has
become of the old-fashioned girl wh<
used to marry a civilian, and while wE
don't know where she is, we do know
that she doesn't live in Spartanburg.
Easiest Thing You Know
That Pickens county candidate whc
wants to abolish the state penitentiary
must be an optimist, but how in th<
world can a man live in Pickens counts
and be an optimist?
You Don't Know N. C.
Gary Hiott went to North Garolinm
last week and yet the regular issue oi
The Pickens Sentinel really appeared
We dion't understand how he recov
er-ed so quickly.

Thel P'ickenus Sentinel offers a year'
subscription to anybody who will cap
Lure the German kaiser. We will ben
that. We will give at year 5 sub)scrip
tion and a hal I' gallon of "'goobers."

He Never Got Here
Rev. Sam TC. Creech, of Woodruff
evangelist of gospel and sunshine, als<
editor of a newspaper, was in the cita
Wednesday. He advises us that Wat
son Bell recently went over to Green
ville, where he got a whiff of th<
"chain .lightning" that is manufac
tured in the "dark corner," and tha
the last seen of him he was meanderinf
down Pickens way to join Gary Hiot
We Don't Know Much About It'
Gary Hliott says: "For years scien
tists have tried to decide just whal
is whiskey. It's a conunidrum t
us, too; so we'll give it up." Well
we are glad to see the old rasca
stumped at last.
Gary Hiott admits that he doesn'
know whamt whiskey is and has giver
it up. If Gary/doesn't know, every
body else might as wvell give it up
