The Sentinel’s Apology
A ll errors end omissions in the Sen­
tinel this week may safety be charg' d
up to the prevailing epidemic which
has rendered it hnpoesible to turn the
copy prepared fu r the paper into type
matter. Last weak there were five
members o f the tw o Sen tin si fam ilies
confined to their beds with the flu, but
we had a good start on the paper, and
by calling to our aid J. C. Ravage, who
form erly published the Sentinel, were
able to get out on time with the usual
amount Of reading matter. But this
week when the junior editor had to lay
off in addition, and we were left with
no experienced linotype operator, it
became a question whether it would
be possible to get out any paper at
all. We have done the'best we could,
however, and we know our readers
will excuse us. It has been necessary
to let advertising as trail as news go
over until next weekwhae we hope the
skies will begin to brighten.
