Mr. Editor: I thank the two gen lemen who replied to my question, ut would like to go a little further n the subject. If the time Was h banged at the birth of Christ, was done by .Divine authority? If so, lease give us the :text. If 'it was ot, the text will be found in Daniel :25: And he shall speak great words gainst the mpst High, and shall wear ut the saints of the most High, and kink to change times and laws; and hey shall be given unto his hand ntil a time and times and the divid ig of time. If the Sabbath was nailed to the ross, where do we get Sunday sacred ess? and if tithing was done away Pith, where have we a system for he support of the ministry? If all ras done away with, where do we et religion? I am looking for Jesus to come soon. 'ray, tell me, will it be safe to fol >w the traditions of men or the com iandments of God? L. W. Nations. Generally Admitted Facts: That the seventh day of the week y cycle, the clay on which the Creator ested, was set apart at the creation f the world as the Sabbath of Je ovah. That it was enjoined in the deca cgue, and kept by patriarchs, proph ts, and the faithfully obedient, for he first 1000 years of earth's his ory; That it has been kept by some hristians from the first advent of )hrist to the present time, as can be. learly proved by history; That, notwithstanding this, the reat majority of proffessed Christians ire observing with more or less de otion and strictness the first clay of he week, commonly ealled Sunday. That it is not a settled question, but is the most widely agitated re ligious question in the world at the present time, not only in religious circles, but in municipal councils, in courts of law, and in state and nation al legislatures; That these facts, and others which might be mentioned, have led many thousands of earnest-minded men and women to examine anew the evidences n which Sabbath observance and Sunday observance are based. Thn question is-Who changed the Sabbath ? If you will go to either the Ency lopedia Americana, artic.le "Sabbath," r to the Encyclopedia Britanica, dinth edition, article "Sunday," or hamber's Encyclopedia, article "Sab iath", you will find that the earliest ecognition of the. observance of Sun lay as a legal duty is a constitution f Constantine the Great in A. D. 321. Allow me to quote from The Cath lie Mirror, Sept. 23, 1893: "The Catholic Church changed the ay from Saturday to Sunday. The bristian(?) (the question mark is line) sabb~ath is therefore to this clay he ace.knowvledged offspring of the autholic' Church,--wvithiout a word of enmonst ra nce f'rom the Protesta nt 'The first ones wvho protested against he Catholic Chutrch dloctrines wVere urned at the stake. and millions ivcere (ribhly torturd for their faith, but L is so mtuchi ea:sicr to drift withi the ide', and todayv Protestants ( ?) fail a protest.

It was written by Moses in a ook, and had to do exc~lusively with 1c sacrifices and services of tnle tem.. le; with divers washings meats and rinks,- feast days, and holy dlays, ith clays of the moon, etc.; together 'ith the- cer'emonial sabbath clays, oken of in Leviticus 23 and other ~rlptu res.

"Those of the nconnie who ad~ a CENTRAL LOCAL. AND PERSONAL H. J. McGee of Anderson was in Central, last Friday on business. He shook .'hands with many of his: old friends while here. Rev. and Mrs. Goodwin have been on the sick list for several 'weeks. Their many friends here hppo they will soon be out again. The improvement Mr. R. G. Gaines is making to his home by adding a large veranda, is nearing completion and when it is- finished will be one of the most attractive places In this com.. mtinity. Rev. and Mrs. W; D. Correll have moved info their new home on East Main street,.that has just been finish ed. They have a beautiful bungalow on one of the prettiest building sites in Central. Some bootleggers uidertook to put one over on Ceritral one .day last week when they hid a ten-gallon keg of booze in the woods near town. But the old terror in this section to boot leggers soon scented the boy and the chase began with J. W. Julian cap turing the keg. While he was search ing the woods for the booze the boys smelt a rat and in a few minutes they were Georgia bound. Mr. J. T. Gassaway was away all last week at Greenvillet attending Federal Court, having been one of the jury. E. L. Henderson was in'reenville on business last week, but it was not Federal court business. Mrs. L. G. Clayton left last Satur (lay morning for Tovcoa, Ga., where she, goes to visit her daughter, Mrs. W. I. M. Tabor,; for a few days. Ponstmaster Rowland was in Green ville last week on business, but his was no Federal court business either. Nobody knows 'like the man who stayed at home and kept the children while his wife went to the society, or missionatry meeting and stayed over time. Burglars entered the store of Mr. Borroughs at Norris near here last Wednesday night and took quite a bit of goods. G. G. Christopher was here onb day last week on business. He was the defendant's attorney in a case before Esq. Dickson. LEGISLATURE NOTES State Senator J. H. Marion of Chester was last week elected by the legislature as associate justic of the state supreme court. On the deciding hdllot the vote was Marion, 83 M. L. Bonham of Anderson, 72. Representative McGinnis of Dar lington, and Williams -of Pickens, in troduced a bill to retire all judges after ten years' of'service and after they have reached 70 years of age, on two-thirds pay. .Work in the general ~assembly is just now getting well under way. The Sentinel will endeavor to keep its reCaders' informedl upon any important netion t he body may take. hlIIRTHDAY CELEBRATION On Januar'y 10 the children andl neighbo)(rs gatherred at the home of Mrs. J. M. Arnold to celebrate her 61st birthday. At noon time a large table was-apread with all kinds of good things to eat. The childlren and grandlchildlren are Mr. and Mrs. J. G. Simmons, Mr. and Mrs. W. J. D. Crane, Mr. and Mr's. Thomas Arnold, Mr. and Mr's. L. E. Findley, all of Pickens county, eleven grandechildren and only one daughter at home, Miss Eula Arnold. fn the evening when we all parted it was sad tso think that - probably we would all never meet again on this earth, but I hope 'we will all meet in heaven. D true sense of the meaning of the sac'rifices andl offerings of that day, unl~derstCood that the blood of the victims couldl not atone for their sins, but simply their faith manifested in the great provision God would make ini the future." "The Sabbath of the fourth com- 4 mandment cannot possibly be placed in the same category with these shadowvy "sabbath" days of the cere-. mniiai law; for first of all, the Sab bath (lay of Jehovah belongs to the mora'jl law of Ten Commandments, an oternal and unchangeable code."
