The machine is the Burroughs Adding-Sab tracting Model and will greatly simpli fy the work of keeping the bank's books. One should see this Burroughs in op eration to fully appreciate wvhat a won derful thing it is. It automatically prints dlates, subtracts checks, adds de p)osits and comp~utes new balances, all in one movament of the carriage across the page, and wvith a speed that seems incredible. That is to say, the machine not only posts figures to the ledger page, but computes balances aatomat ically as the posting is done. ERROR-PROOF "STEEL BRAINS" And this automatic bookkeeper can't make a mistake. His "steel brains"~ are mathematically error-proof. De pressing the keys puts figures "into" the Burroughs. Touching a bar adds or subtracts the figures and prints them in even rows. And no matter how fasts or how long you feed figures into it, the machine never gets tired, never lets ,errors creep in through "brain fag." It has just as lively an appetite for tire large numbers as for smiall. As a de positor you might deponit $10,000,000 tomorrow, but the machine would not have to exert itself to enter the amount, add your old1 balance, subtract your checks and automatically compute the correct new balance of your account. Trho only time it balks is when you have an overdIraft. Theni it warns the oper ator, by the simple expedient of refus ing to figure any more without the "subtract lever-is held (down, that your account is overdrawn, and thereupon proceeds to print a redl "'OD'. sinaln , Local and Personal Misses Lura Pickens and May Pepper of below Easley are the guests of Mrs. M.

Caradine Chapman of the Lenhardt section was in Pickens on business Mon day and while here paid The Sentinel a visit. He is a hustling W. 0. W. and a good citizen.

Stewart is announced this week as a candidate for re-election to the of fice of treasurer of Pickens county. He has been treasurer for several years and has made a good officer.

Heretofore, in posting to the ledger It was necessary for a list of checks and deposits to be entered by hand in order for the bank to properly debit and credit each customer's account. The bookkeepers had to iqdd each list of checks mentally, also had t~o add all deposits and combine their'total with the customer's old balance. When that was done the total of all checks had to be deducted from the sum of old bal ance and deposits to dletermine new bal ance. With the machine all this is ac complished automatically and without any mental calculation wvhatever. Trhe operator has only to depress the proper' keys an'tj touch the operating bar. Blurroughs-postedI ledgers have many. advantages that even a person not fa miliar with bookkeeeping will recog nize. As explained all figuring is done mechanically, the operator being obliged only to watch the amount he is enter ing. Then, in addition tothe speed and economy such a method affords, there is the infallible accuracy accruing to the use of the machine. The precision with which the interior mechanism operates insures an exactitude hertofore uin known in figure work. 'rhe adaptability. of the machine is another feature of its usefullness. It can be adjusted to an infinite number of combinations. It may be used as an ordlinary adding machine, or as a straight subtracting machine. It may be used for posting to the ledger or making out depositors' statements. And figures whether simnple or complicated, are gob bled up with equal facility -by the insa tiable appetite of its mechanical works. Theire is no human belilg wvho can list and add a long column of figures at thec same time with speed and with abso lute accuracy, but the Burroughs does it. Adv.
