"Corning down the years the first
j ?pun of note seems to have ??UJU in
1893 when three big mills got into
hape with $2,253,000 capital.
' There was a lull till 1895 when thir
teen mills with an aggregate of $3?
?5,176 were started, our Riohland
Bill being among them.
'The year 1896 was a good one also,
'he capital of mills started that year
"Then came 1898 with eight mills
?jd $1,407,516, all still running and
l899 was even a better year with eight

"Bat the banner year was 1900, the

reported as starked in time for taxa
ble parpoies is the Tjger in Spartan
burg county worth $96,500.
'It is thus seen that the mills built
from 1893 to 1898 and still running
represent $7,733,295 in investments,
while from 1898 to 1902 the sum of
$8,258,009 was invested, making a
total investment in less than a decade
of $15,991,304, and showing at what
time Carolina awakened rrom her
lethargy and began to raoe. It is
pleasing to reflect that The State was
founded in 1891 and from the first
sang the siren song of the cotton mill
spindle, and kept it np in season and
out of Goason.
"South Carolina has had cotton
mills for over half a century. And
thorovare some such as the Saluda fac
tory that have dropped ont of exist
ence. There are others, however,
Btill running, and doing well. The
Pendleton mill at Antun, Anderson
County, is entered in the official list
as having be?n organized in 1838; it
has its value placed at $50,000. Then
comes the famous old Granite ville
mill organised in ?845, now being
valued at $1,008,000; it has never
ceased to ran."
The foregoing interesting ' summary
by Tho Sttte is followed by a list of
the mills save the nineteen whose
dates could not be ascertained, show
ing when they began operations. The
mill at Antun, in Anderson County,
is reported as being organised in 1838,
and stands at the head of the list. It
was known for masy years as the
"Pendleton factory," and from its
early years was owned and operated
by Col. Beoj. F. Sloan, a prominent
and wealthy oitizen of Pendleton, who
was the father of Col. J. B. E. Sloan,
of Charleston, Mr. B. F. Sluan, of
Seneca, and Dr. P. H. E. Sloan, of
Clemson College. Some years after
the war a company was organized with
Mr. William Perry as the president
and manager, and it had a series of
successful years under his manage
I ment. Mr. Perry is now a citizen of
Walhalla, and is in his 84th year.
Batesville is mentioned as being
the only mill in the world with a wo
man as the president, which is proba
bly true, but it is more than likely
that Batesville should also enjoy the
distinction of being the oldest mill
now being operated in South Carolina.
Mrs. Mary P. Gridley, of thia city, is
tho e&oient president, and is at her
desk in the mill office for three days
in the weok. She succeeded to the
position upou the death of her father,
but he waB not the founder of the
mill at Batesville, as stated by our
contemporary. Rev. Thomas Hutch
ings; a Methodist preaoher, is accredi
ted with being the founder of the
mill industry at that point, and his
equipment consisted of two spinning
frames, and one loom situated ina
small house on the baol- i < f Rooky
creek in a beautiful and picaresque
location, whioh is exceedingty attrac
tive to-day. The house originally
used is still in a fair state of. preser
vation. It is hardly asoertainable
now as to the precise year that Mr.
Hutchins began his pioneer work, but
the facto that are knowu indioate that
he was several years ahead of the
mill near Pendleton, probably in.1832.
It is our purpose to make further
inquiry along this line, and we have
the promise of valuable assistance at
an early date. Batesville is eleven
miles from Greenville, and bears the
name of Mr. Wm. Bates, who was its
owner for more than twenty years, and
who sold it to a oompany in 1862. He
was the father-in-law of the late Col.
Henry P. Hammett; and has been re
garded as among f '^o earliest ~zd most
intelligent pioneers in the mill busi
ness in upper South Carolina, whioh
in the 30s and 40s had several mill
enterprises that ended in failure, as
we have learned the traditions of those
days, * Mr. Bates was a native vf New
England, and name to this State when
quito a young man.
Mrs. Gridley, the accomplished
president of Batesville, ia ably assist
ent in the management of this valuable
property, by Mr. John W. Baker,
whose business qualifications are re
cognized wherever he is known. He
is a native of Laurens, and among his
educational advantages he was onde
conneoted with this office, whioh may
account for the versatility of his ac
complishments, aa he is an excellent
merchant, an up-date farmer and
.skilled in textile affairs, all of these
being utilized ia the active supervis
ion of Batcsville's increasing import
ance and ' enlarged manufacturing,
mercantile and farming interests.

doesn't haye to boast of niranccstora.
The Japanese are nothing if not pro
gressive. The island of Formosa, says
tbs "Japan and American" magasine,
will soon become, nader the wise,
economic administration of Baron Ko
clama and Dr. Goto, one of the great
sugar producing regions of the world
-and the sugar it will produce
will be made from sweet potatoes. It
is regarded as probable that in Europe
and the United States beet sugar will
eventually drive cane sugar out of the
market, bat in the far East the oui
ture of the sngar beet has not even been
begun, as cane sngar is especially fa
vored. The only rival to it ia potato
sngar, as made in Formosa. There is
an almofct unlimited market in the
East for sogar, and the Japanese ad
ministration in Formosa is wisely
availing itself of the splendid oppor
tunity for developing and supplying
It is estimated that all the southern
half of the island is adapted to the
growing of the sweet potato for sugar
manufacture. The first sugar compa
ny was established about two years
ago. In 1901 the product of sweet po
tato sugar was 20,000 "bales." This
year, as estimated, it will be 60,000
bales. One acre of land will produce
.40,000 pounds of potatoes, worth about
I $40, "and tho manufacturing expense
is on!y 75 cents for 1,000 pounds of
sngar." Wages are low, laborers re
ceiving from 12 to 16 cents a day, the
produot is fully equal in quality to the
best cane sogar, and, in all the con
ditions, it is not surprising that the
industry is developing so rapidly and
offers so large promise.
Possibly the matter may possess a
large praotioal Interest for some pro
gressive oommunity, or generation, in
this psrt of the world? The sweet po
tato grows to perfection in all the
Southern States-some loeal varieties
being of extraordinary sweetness-and
is produced in great quantities, at
comparatively small cost. It wes re
ported a few days ago that n farmer in
York County, this State, had gatherod
this year fifty-five bushels from an
eighth of an aore, or at the rate of 440
bushels to the aore; and we noted that
another had grown 600 bushels on one
acre in Abbeville County, and that
more than 800 bushels have been pro
duced on one aore on the coast. Mr.
J. H. Mattox, of Clinoh County, Geor
gia, however, produced 1,500 bushels,
lees five, on one acre a few years ago,
which shows what can be done with
the crop by proper attention.
If the Japanese can make money
out of the manufacture of the roots in
to sugar, we might do the same. Even
at 600 or 800 bushels to the aore we
should give the best sugar people of
the West & sharp tussle for the con
trol of the sugar industry, as there is
at least three times as much sugar in
one of our yams as there is in any beet
of the same size grown anywhere in
the country.-News and Courier.

? Ono of the largest life insurance
companies of this country reoently
published s pamphlet containing a list
ef 435persons at whose deaths poli
ices were paid by the company during
the year 1901, though the insurance on
their lives had been in force leas than
a year. Considering hoer carefully
medical examiners are selected as a
rule and how thoroughly medical ex
aminations are made, for the so-called
big companies at least, this would seem
a surprisingly large number of deaths
so early, about five out of every
1,000 policy holders for whom risks
were assumed by the oompany during
the year. Far from considering this
item of loas as due to any defeot of
the iusurance (system or any failure of
their medioal examiners to deteot path
ological conditions that were manifest
ly present and should not have been
missed, the oompany in question sets
it down to tho inevitable uncertainty
' of human life.
The company's officials are justified
in assuming this very sensible position
by data that may be obtained from an
analysis of the death list. The deaths
are distributed throughout the year as
follows: Eight-five in the first quarter,
118 in the second quartor, 109 in tho
third quarter and 123 in the fourth
quarter. The lowest number of deaths
in any month was 10, in the first
month; the highest number was 51, in
the seventh month. The fact that the
deaths were more frequent toward
the end of the year would seem to ab
BOIVO the medical department of the
oompany from much of the apparent
blame that attaohes to it. An inter
esting item in this connection is thc
alleged faot that 10,000 applications
for .life insurance were refused by thc
same company in the same year.
The deaths occurred among persone
of all olassos and ages. There wen
students as well aa professors, and al
most every possible occupation has iti
representative in the death list, fron
that of the proverbially healthy farm
er to the dangerous life of the trail
hand and locomotive engineer. Ther<
are a full dosen physicians in the list
three of whom died during the firs
three months of their insurance
None of these had policies for mon
than $1,000, except one, he had but
$2,000 on his lifo, so thatit seems im
probable that any inkling of impend
ing fate had oome to them or they
would surely have applied for larger
amounts, the medical examination be
ing the same for applicants up to $25,
