A Good Place The Pickens Drug Company has for several years wanted the agency for .Huyler's candy and has at last secured it. This has been difficult, as the Huy ler people do not like to put their goods in small towns. This candy has about the best reputation of any candy in the land. The Pickens Drug Company has a stock of Christmas goods this year that will rival many city stores. They are trying to keep trade at home and will appreciate it ever so much if you will give them a chance. J. N. Hallum, the manager, says that the line of jewelry they carry has been bought from the same house for six years and has given splendid satisfaction. They carry the goods all the time and replace any filled or plated goods that fail to give satis faction. These occasions are very rare. 'hey are especially strong on solid gold goods and have a nice line of same. Here's hoping that you will trade with home people and helip make the people, the town and the county what you would have them be.---Adv. Supervisor Craig is having a ware house and shed built for the county just behind The Sentinel office.

Mr. Fortner says he is now going to farming and would like to plant some cotton very early. But we remind him not to get in too big a rush, as we are likely to have some more ice before it will do to plant cotton seed. At least we think so. Well, Mr. Editor, if you had been with me the other day I would have shown you a pole cat, or at least a cat was up a pole. A FARMER.

D. Harris in Pickens. All this valuable property will be sold at public auction Dec. 20. and it will be the biggest auction sale ever, held in Pickens. You may get particulars about the sale by reading the page advertisement. The Greensboro Realty and Auction Co. has charge of the sale and they say that Mr. Harris has turned the proper ty over to them with instructibns tosell it to the highest bidder regardless of the price and they intend to sell it that way. It is useless for us to speak of the value of the property, as everybody knows it to be among the mostval uable in the county. As Mr. Harris never tells anybody his gersonal plans we do not know them, ut we gather from what he says that he will continue to make Pickens his home. le says he likes the town which has so many sacred associations for him ahd he wants to see it grow; that he owns more property than he can give his >ersonal attention to and improve and le has decided to sell his Pickens property to individuals who will im prove it and help the old town grow. An immense crowd is expected to be here for the sale. Prizes will be given away and a mighty good band will be on hand to make music grand when they sell the land. Make your arrangements now to be here Wednesday, December 20. Around Route 3 (Intended for Last Week) Mrs. J. H. Lollis, who has been very sick, is improving.
