The Ninety Six correspon

makes the following state
"The projected cotton mill will
have a 10,000-spiudle capacity and
will be capitalized at $200,000. A
charter has been applied for end

Ninety Six is a town of
about 6oo people and is to
have a cotton mill capitalized
at $200,000 of which $^5,000
is subscribe<^aVTour informa
tion goes the ..homefolks" of
Edgefield have not 75 cents
invested in manufacturing en
terprises. Yet many wonder
- why business is dull and why,
there is not more life-com
mercial life-in the old town.
The wayfaring man though
a fool can see the why. A
#town that is chiefly dependent
for its support upon the agri
cultural interests which, on
account of the impoverished
condition of the lands and un
favorable seasons, are limited
and uncertain, cannot expect
booming business 12 months
in the year. The dull time
mustjjecessarily come when
-cTmoney is being paid out
for farm labor and when no
crop is being marketed.
What Edgefield needs is to
. supplement her present re
sourcej with varied enter
prises, great and small, that
will afford employment for ?11
classes and conditions of la
bor. In proportion as these
enterprises multiply the vol- 1
ume and frequency of the
pay-rolls will increase which
will in turn swell the bank de
posits ; increase the volume
of the merchants' business;
add hundreds to our popula
tion, thereby benefitting the
doctors, lawyers, dentists,
schools and churches.
In urging the neecj of in
dustrial enterprises we do not
discount or disparage the mill
that is already established in
Edgefield. It will compare
favorably with any other mill
in the state of equal size. One
semi-monthly pay roll, how
ever, divided among so many
does not appreciably increase
the volume of business We
need a dozen pay-rolls.

THE .YEW CHARLESTON.
Charleston, that staid old
city of which poets have sung
and historians have written
many pages,has been for these
hundreds of years sui generis.
She has recently, however,
undergone a transition.
Through the Exposition and
its iniluences Charleston has
been changed into a hustlng,
bustling, twentieth century
city in which new methods
and new ideals prevail.
As the heaving and trembl
ing of the earth in '86 demol
ished many of her cherished
relics of the old colonial days
so has the Exposition and the
cosmopolitan throng which
attended it left their impress
by dissipating, in a large
measure, the ultra-conser
vatism of social and commer
cial life. Many a hitherto
unknown innovation is now
to be seen. Notably that of
the reporter bearding the lion
in his den by invading and
profaning the sacred precin
cts of Charleston's exclusive
and reclusive social set and
exploiting their social func
tions in the public prints.
Doubtless some of Charles
ton's old antiquated citizens,
who, nothing daunted, cling
to the ideas and customs of
their fathers and forefathers,
are now saying that this new
order of things will, in the
language of Mr. Mantilini,
lead the city to the "demni
Charleston has taken on
new life. Commercially speak
ing, a new heaven and a new
earth have opened up to her.
So marked will be the change
in Charleston, due to the Ex
position, that we sliall in fu

The many friends of Hon.
W. R. Parks desire to nomi
nate him for the Legislature
at the coming Democratic
primary. This is the result
of a meeting of citizens held
at Modoc, June 28, 1902, and
was against his personal wish.
We believe, however, that
the interest of the county
should be put as far as poss
ible at all times in the hands
of able and conservative busi
nese men such as Mr . Park,
anJ at personal sacrifice he
has patriolicaliy consented to
let his name go before his fri
low citzens at the comeing

fident of the people f r his
election. Not only is he an
able and successful man but
he is conservativeand the pub

trusted to his hands and bus

surance that they will be eco 1

fortunate to secure the servie
