J. C. Carpenter of Easley Dead
A Victim of Spanish Influenza.
The second death from Spanish influ
enza at E asley occurred at an early hou:
this morning when John 0. Carpenter
oldest son of Ex-Senator C. H. Carpen
ter, proved a victim to the dreadful dis
ease. The first death was on Wednes
day night when Mrs. Maud S. Hugh:
succumbed after an illness of a littbc
more than forty-eight hours.
Mrs. Hughes went to the mill to work
on Monday morning but was unable t<
return that afternoon. Her conditior
grew rapidly worse from the outset an<
she passed away Wednesday night.
Mr. Carpenter was a faithful R. F. D.
from this place and has held that posi
tion for seventeen years. He resided or
a farm near ho :mnd was only three
months ago marriers to Miss Lucia Cely.
He appearel at tihe post office on Mon.
day morning to mak~e his rounds as usual
but had to give up that afternoon and
his ease becamie serious from the first,
It is unoticially stated that there ar<
more than two hundred cases of thh
disease here or what is thought to be,
At any rate it i. the most peculiar epi
demic that the town has ever known
Efforts to check it's spread are being
put forth and it is hoped that soon con
ditions will be normal again.
Mr. Carpenter is survived by his wife
his fathe and fi'e sisters and one broth
er, Robert D. Carpenter of Greenville
The funeral services will be held at
Antioch Saturday afternoon at 1 o'clock.

HONOR ROLL OF
ra The First List of Those of This
Community Who Have Snb
a scribed for Fourth Liberty
3 Following the announcement in the c
Sentinel that we would print the names I
1 of all those in Pickens who purchase c
I bonds of the fourth Liberty loan we are I
now presenting the first list of those en- '
titled to a place on this roll of honor of
honor of bond buyers. Before the sale
closes and the list has been completed i
we expect to see every family in Pick- t
ens represented, because we do not be- f
lieve there is a single family in the corn
munity that is not 100 per cent Ameri- t
can, and because we do not believe there 'I
is a single individual in Pickens who f
does not want his dollars to be used to %
support Picken's boys who are to-day I
fighting the Huns in France.
If you have bought a bond and your I
name is not in this list be sure that you 1
report the fact to The Sentinel office at t
once as it would not be fair to you or f
the community to have the name omit
ted. We know that in the end it will
be a complete roster of the families in
Pickens and will in many cases include
the names of every member of the t
