The Intelligencer has had much to
say recently about the remarkably
rapid growth of manufacturing indus
tries in thia County. Cotton mill after
cotton mill has been established within
the last few months, adding thousands
of spindles to an already highly credi
table industrial showing. There are
now in operation and in course of
actual construction in this county cot
ton mille aggregating :>05,000 spindles.
In addition, there is at Portman, on
.Seneca Uiver, ? miles distant, an elec
trical power plant furnishing ."?,000
electrical horse power to the city of
Anderson, all of which is consumed by
the mills, the small industries and iii

Those of our people who formulated
the plana and carried into execution
the varioua details, which made per
niaueut the industries abovo referred
to, are to be congratulated. They
have accomplished a work which will
tell wonderously for voara to come in
the development of thia section of tho
the State, but this article is intended
to point to the fact that what hus boen
done ia but a beginning of the devel
opment of tho resources of Anderson
County. Aa has been said, tho indus
trial development has been at Ander
son aud along the eastern bordor of
the County. Beyond tho development
of 5,000 electrical horse-power at Port
man, all of which is consumed here in
tho city, nothing of an industrial na
ture hus been done in tho western por
tion of tho county. The Townships of
Savannah, Rock Mills, Fork, Pendle
ton and part of Garvin comprises this
Boction, and are perhaps tho most pro
ductive Townships ot tho County. On

speculation, but based upon careful
surveys and calculations made by
highly reputable engineers. This prop
erty is owned and controlled by citi
zen? of Anderson. A few moments'
reflection will present to tho mind the
wonderful possibilities of Anderson
with this power developed. It will be
sufficient to furnish sixteen milla the
size of the Orr Cotton Mill, or a multi
tude of smaller industries, lc would
make possible an industrial develop
ment more than double that we now
have and an increase in population of
at least 20,000 souls. All that is now

ia want of unanimity of action on tho
fiart of those of our people now in the
end in industrial development. There
ia no lack of money nor is there lack of
confidence, buta lack of coining to
Sether in concert of action. Why, it ia
ifticolt to tull, because all who know
anything of tho enterprises already
launched can readily see that contracts
for a very considerable amount of elec
trical horse-power could bu signed to
day, producing an income sufficient to
make the bonds for such nu tun er prise
a ready aale in the money markets.
The plant at Portman produces 5,000
electrical horse-power, which is only
snfticieut to run three mills, thu small
industries and light tho city. They
have not to -day a dollar's wort li of
power for aale. The industries already
in operation and to be put in operation
in the near future-industries in actual
course of conetruction, leaving out the
the R. S. Hill mill, the building of
which is an assured fact-will need all
of 5,000 horse-power, and should they
decide upon electrical power and enter
into contracts for power io be furnish

thia power would be developed and the
population of Anderson would be

The development of this power
means too much to the city of Ander
son to be lost. It means more cotton
mills and hundreds of small industries
and a rich and populous ci ty. It makes
possible the liukiug together of adja

the development of resources which
will always remain dormant if steam

That this power caunotbe developed

THE ADVANTAGES WHICH ACCRUE
TO THE FARMER.
Some of the Profit He Realizes by the
Establishment of Cotton Seed Oil /Ailis.
No manufacturing industry stands
a? close to the farmer as the cotton
seed oil milla. The interest of the two
are mutual and inseparable. 'A very
large part of the products of the oil
mili? la now returned to the 'arm and
practically ail of it in som? 'orin can
The mill provides a profitable market
for the surplus seed, and returns the
product to Hie farmer, with greatly
enhanced value in a finished condition.
While th<> larger part of the business
between the mill and the farmer ls
conducted on a basis of barter and ex
change, lt does not actually ditter
much in results from the toll system of
the corn mill.
The oil mill purchases the seed In
the open market, and sells its products
in the same way, hut ultimately, all
nf the hulls and meal should get back
to the farms from which the seed were
shipped. Willie this is now thc reault
in many cases, lt ls not as common or
general as the practice should be. Ev
ery pound of these two products pro
duced in the Smith should le- returned
lo the land, either as fertilizer ap
plied direct, or stock feed, the latter
much to bc preferred, as their value
in that way ls Immensely increased.
About 1X30 a cotton seed oil mill waa
established at Columbia, S. C. The
historian of the time only considered it
of sufllolent Importance to congratu
late the "public-spirited" citizen who
had enterprise enough to establish the
huslness, but did make the : arther
i'Oinmen' that th" owner "expressed
from cc ton ?oed a very fair grade of
edible oil." No further reference is
made to this beginning of the busi
ness, and il can only he inferred that
the improper handling of Ute product,
or the prejudices of the people against
this .'edible oil." prevented it from be
ing successful. in ISCO Aldigee
found thousands of tons of
seed dumped on the commons, and
placed unuer guard td prevent the
cows from eating them, as they were
regarded as poisonous to cattle.
From such conditions lias grown a
magnificent industry that has added
millions to the value of Southern
farms, increased the traffic of the i ail
roads, established an immense foreign
trade with this country, earned fair
returns for its promoters, while giving
employment to thousands of men at
remunerative wages, many of whom
otherwise would be idle at the season
when their work is required at the
In all of thia development the great
est benefits have been derived by the
farmers. The mills have taken the seed
which prior to their establishment,
were either lost entirely or wastefully
used, and converted them into valuable
products, easily and economically
handled, resulting in the cheaper pro
duction of crops, and Increased yields
Raising and fattening cattle has been
one of the Interesting features of thia
development. The fattening of cattle
in the South for market, outside, per
haps, of the Texas ranges, was un
known before the extensive use of cot
ton seed hulla and meal. At present,
almost every neighborhood is raising
a few head of cattle for the butcher
on this feed, and In many sections,
numbers of cattle are being fattened
i In thia way. 'Aa this business Increases
it will be followed by the erection of
packing houses In the South with all
the advantages of such Industries.
Any land-owner can make fattening
cattle profitable. It has been chemi
cally demonstrated, sustained by prac
! tlcal tests that the droppings from cat
I tie fed on cotton seed meal is equal in
feeding value to the meal itself applied
directly to the land. No other feed
has any such comparative value.
When this is considered, the immense
advantages derived by the farmers
from the establishment of cotton seed
! oil mills is realized even if no other
benefits accrue, but when the abund
ance and cheapness of hulls Is consid
ered, and their value to the farmer
and feeder recognized, some idea is
given of the splendid work and advan
tages the other mills have accom
plished towards the development of
In almost any season, regardless of
the price of seed and products, the
mills of the Southern Cotton Oil Mill
Company of the Carolinas and Georgia
will give back to the farmers all of the
meal and hulls produced from the seed
in exchange for the seid, reserving
only the oil. and small amount of short
lint to cover transportation charges,
cost of working, interest on Investment
and profits. No more liberal division
of the profits between manufacturers
and consumer has "fever been accom
plished. It makes the business co
operative, returning to the farmer all
that is of any value to him, in a great
ly improved condition, and consequent
ly greatly increased in valus, and
leaving with the mill only that part
of the ceed universally regarded as de
trimental in its natural condition,
either ns a feed or fertilizer, from
which the mill must reo'ize all of its
expenses, including coat of working.
The oil ls converted at the refineries
In Savannah into pure and whole
some substitutes for lard, known as
"Palmatlna" and "Snowdrift," and ls
given beck to the consumers' table as
a delicacy nt a low price, or as a pure
