Anderson Twine .Mill.
The advancement being made in An
derson in industrial development does
not depend entirely upon ? combina
tion of capital subscribed by many.
There is now in course of erection just
outside the city limits, west, alongside
of the Hine Kidge Railroad, a mill for
the manufacture of cotton wrapping
twine, which, when completed and
equipped, will cost not less than
$2."S,000, furnish employment for &i op
eratives and uso in manufacture daily
five bales of cotton. This industry is
tho venture of one man, Mr. H. C.
Townsend, and illustrates the confi
dence felt at home in tho results to be
obtained from the development of
Southern resources. Tho mill business
is not new to Mr. Townsend. Ile has
already achieved success in managing a
planing mill and lumber supply business
in this city.
The ?structure of the Twine mill will
be of brick, 140x80 feet, two stories,
with a complement often or twelve
cottages to house the operatives. The
machinery used will be almost identi
cal with that used by our yarn mills, a
change of the guage to manufacture
the coarse thread or twine bi wig about
the only difference. There will be used
as machinery un opener, picker system,
cards, roll drawing machines, slubbers,
intermediates, speeders, twisters, reels,
hailing machines, ?Vc.
Bapid headway is being made toward
completing this mill. A brick machine
and i?l? hands are now on the ground
making ?"?,(100 brick per day. Three of
the cottages have been completed and
two others are in course ot erection.
Mr. Townsend hopes to complete the
work by the middle of July next. '1 he
