The Cotton Mills of Anderson.
Frequently inquiries are made at
this office by visitois from other cities
concerning the number and capitali
zation of the textils industries of the
city and county. There aro so many
mills and HO many changes in tho way
of additions to the capital stock have
taken plac? that the home people often
ure unable to supply the information.
The following nummary gives the
names of the mills in the county with
Anderson Cotton Mills. $000,000
Brogon Cotton Mills. 000,000
Conneross Yaru Mill. ?O.OOO
Corona Knitting Mill. 23,000

Orr Cotton Mills. MOO.OOO
Riverside Afanufacturing Co.. KW,000
Townsend Twine Mill. 2i),000
Toxaway Manufacturing Co.. 200,000
The above list includes the mills that
belong to the city of Anderson. Those
at other points in tho couuty are:
Helton Cotton Milla. $700,000
Ch i quoin Mills, Honea Path.. 400,000
Pelzer Manufacturing Co. 1,000.000
Pendleton Cotton Mills. 100,000
Piedmont Manufacturing Co.. 800,000
Williamston Cotton Mills.... ?00,000
The total amount of capital invested
in cotton mills in Anderson County is
$0,400,000, and this vast property is re
turned for tuxation on the basis of 00
per cent of its actual valuation. The
total amount of taxable property in
the county, ns shown by the abstracts
recently made out by Auditor Holcman,
is $11,002,005. The foregoing statistics
show what a large per centage of the
county's wealth is represenced by tho
making of cotton into cloth.
A commission has been secured from
the Secretary of State for a new mill
at 'va, with a capitalization of $200,
000, but the com puny has not yet been
foi io a I ly organized. *
When all these mills are running
with a full quota 'ot operatives, it is
estimuted that more than 9,000 em
ployes are required. The consumption
of raw cotton amounts to moro than
l?O.OOO bules, or approximately three
times the number of bales produced in

It is really surprising even to an An

the city, und in the county, too.
Building lots sell for twice the same

more than double the price. But then
if yen are on the go and soe the tre
mendous lot of new houses being
built you would not wonder long why
it is land is advancing BO rapidly. A

That is only ono case; there are many
other instances. The Intelligencer
tries to mention a few of the homes
and difieren! enterprises being built
every week. bur. it ia almost impossible
to mention t-ierj all.
With the completion of the Blue
Ridge Railway, the building ot the in

tremendous enterprises in soak which
are sn*-e to materialize within a very
short time, Anderson is certain to be

of W. W. Russell, two young 10-year
old printers who have been with the
Daily Mail for some time, left Ander

o'clock train. They told some of their
young friends before leaving that they
intended to go to the Panama Canal.
Young Russell has a brother, W. E.
Russell, who is in the Government
service at Panama. TheBO young boys
are very bright and cracking good
printers, and their friends are confi
dent that they will take care of them
selves, it they remain in the United j
States it will be an easy matter for ;
them to secure all the work they want
in printing offices. But it will not be !
surprising at all if we receive news
