By carefully noting the above figures
you will note that the county is still
running behind about $12,571.19.
The appropriation for 1916 was much
less than that of previous years and
running expenses much greater. I do
not mean merely that the cost of sup
plies of all kinds had advanced from 25
to 30 per cent, but that court expen
ses, handling the insane (which aver
aegd over two a month for 1916), and
and almost every item that enter into
the expense and comes from the ordi
nary county fund have passed that of
1915; therefore, the debt has increased
instead of decreased. I trust that by
the proper economy of all county officials
and a liberal appropriation by our leg
islature that this will be materially de
creased dul-iig 1917.

(BEING A H1EART-TO-HEART TALK
THE PICKENS SENTINEL belongs to
the people of Pickens 6ounty. The, c<
Sentinel became a ,Pickens county h
institution when it was founded c(
forty-five years ago. it
The editor considers himself em- e
ployed by the subscribers to conduct a
this paper for them fnd keep them in
touch with the political, commercial, '
agricultural,religious and educational
life of the county. and he is doing his y
best to fill the bill. The editor must 9
have a living out of his work 'the t
same as a county officer, and the t(
people do not expect him to work for b
them for nothing. ,t
We are trying to conduct 'this s
paper for the benefit of our subscri- b
bers and ourself. g
We consider each subscriber a $
stockholder in the paper, and the
enjoyment, benefit and information
they get from its weekly visits are e
their dividends. We want to con- tv
duct it in a business way of which e
you will approve, so that it will e
bring you better dividends each year. 1
That is the reason we raised the sub- h
scription price. a
We believe a vast majority of our r
subscribers had rather pay one cent
more a week and have a good county
paper than to pay the old rate and
have a poorand uninteresting paper.
We are telling you the truth when
we say we cannot make a decent
living wage and publish The Sentinel a
as we do now and get only one dollar li
a year for it. You do not want us ri
to work for nothing. That's not the
way of Pickens county people. And
we are not going to work for noth
ing. We are, however, going to work s
hard enough to give you more than e
your money's worth.
The Sentinel is recognized as one Ii
of the best weekly papers in the
state. It is our ambition to make it
the best. We certainly do not want ".
to see it go back, and you don't,
But it would surely go back if we
sold it at the same old price when we
have to pay more for everything we
use. Anybody can see that.
It is estimated that more t1
United States have been fort
during the last nine months
cost of paper and other matei
paper which keeps its subscri
under present conditions is
proper protection. The Pick
subscription price to $1.50 a
continued and uninterrupte
price would not do it.
