Tho State Cotton Growers' Convention
tneolB in Columbia Decomber
10. By some mistake the report
went out November 10. This convention
will no doubt be very largely
attended, and will bo decidedly helpful
to tho cotton growers of the State.
Pickens county will, of coureo, be
duly represented by wide awake dele
<?ates. At tuo *jounty uonventiou, |
held November 7, Messrs. C. L. Cureton
and W. T. O'Doll were elected
delegates to tbo Stato Convention.
Realizing what the cotton crop means
to the people of the State, the farmers
aro willing and glad to do everything
in their power to get a remunerative
price for their cotton after it is
raised. After all it is the sure money
A convention of unusuul importance
has been called to meet in
Shreveport, La. December 12-15. It
has been called in the interest of the
cotton growers of tho South, to light
the destructive boll weevil. The boll
weevil is gradually eularging its area
each year at tho rate of about 100
miles. Competent judges say that it
will bo only about ten years until tho
entire cotton growing region of the
South will bo infested. The outlook
is certainly diseourcging, and it is
hoped tbo convention will accomplish
something, but considering past
organized efforts, it is likely the 10SU
suite will bo fruitless. The State
Legislature of Texas offered $50,000
\ to any one who would suggest a suecessful
plan of extermination. Many
L plans wero submitted, but we have
never heard of the money beiug
forked over. While people in South
Carolina do not ordinarily think for a
a^ment of the destructive effects of
boll weevil, it is high time the
^^of \vX is being sounded against
H^et. Gov. Heyward lias been
ifr to appoint 100 <.lolegrtte.s to the
SaSuvention, and ho says lie will apBFint
the entiro number, and urgent
requests every delegate to attend.

Our Good Friends and Sut
It i
For ft long time we have conten;
plated a change in our method (
conducting the business of th
Sentinel-Journal. For years th
subscription department lnis bee
run on the "credit system'' till tli
books are crowdod to the covei
with a mass of unpaid and uuco
loctablo accounts. Newspap<
subscription accounts are smal
and as wo have two thousand <
those on our books, it can roatlil
bo 8oen that the cost of collectic
is a very heavy it<jm, and wo ai
forced, tor our own protection, 1
call a halt and adopt tho -'cash i
advance" system of conducting 01
business. Therefore, alter Jan'
ary 1st, 15)05, all papers sent fro
this office must be paid for in ac
| vau^u,
Wo realize that this is taking
bold stand, but "Business is bus
ness," and we beliove that tl
larger number of our readers \vi
take into consideration our poe
tion and remain on our list
To the subscriber who pays fi
his paper it simply moans that 1
pays for tho year in advance, ii
stead of paying for the year pas
To the man who does not expe
to pay for his paper it Simp
means that he don't get it.
To un it means much. The ea
injr of hundreds of dollars ai
tho use of our capital. Mom
wo miiHt have in order to make tl
improvements in contemplate
and we ask our readers in a ?pij
of fairness and justice to consul
this matter in the right light, ai
not as a reflection on anyone, b
simply as a matter ot husine
We have on our hooks a gr?;
many who are, and always ha
been, prompt in their payment
and we fully appreciate them
There aro many who from ei
cumstances over which thoy ha

And thon iIi?ro is anoth

them a paper of which they mi
feel proud, ami which may prove
powerful lever in tin- advaneoino
of the county's interests.
Naturally we expect a shrinka
of our list, and we have engag'
the services of "I'ncle Zeke" to,
far as possible, counteract this.
To thoroughly advertise t
