Sickles had a reputation that was

Mode a Good Start.
The large an enthusiastic meeting
on Tuesday left no doubt on our part
as to the success of t'a-3 movement to
organize an association for the pur
pose of holding our annual fair in
this city where the products of the
county can be exhibited. That such
a fair would be of great benefit to
the county as well as the city, there
is no room for doubt, and we are
glad that it is almost an assured
fact. All that is needed now to
make It a fact, is for the* business
men of this city to put their should
er to wheel and push.
Every business and professional
man who lives in this city is inter
ested in tbe succers of the move
ment started to establlj*) tiie fair
and every one of them should sub
scribe as liberally as he c^n 10 the
capital stock of the Fair Association,
which has been forme dto hold an
nual fairs in this city. The success
or failure of the eht; p 'Sc deprrtds
on what the City of Orangeburg wijl
do towards raising the money neces
sary bo make it a suce*: s. The hold
ing of a fair here would do this city
untold good, and we must be willing
to pay our share toward it.
A good start has been made. Now
let. us keep up the good work until
the holding of a County Fair in this
city every year is an accomplished
fact. There is no better county :n
tbe State than Orangeburg, looK:n>,
at'it from any standpoint you please
Nor are there to be found anywhere
better people than these that live in
this good old county of Orangeburg.
Then why should ws not have a
County Fair where the products or
the farm, stock, needlework and
other things could b^ exhibited and
sold if desired? There is no reason
why we should not have it and we
therefore are going tc.
As Lord Nelson said to the Brit
ish at Trafalgar, when about to en
gage the French fleet, "England ex
pects every man to do his duTy," so,
we say, Orangeburg expects every
one of her business men, in getting
up this fair, to do their whole duty.
If they will do it, like the English
commander, the county and city will
win a great victory and will' have
the best equipped County Fair in
South Carolina. So let us all, city
and country, get together on the sub
ject of the fair, and build it. It will
bring us all closer together, and do
us all good. There is no telling the
good a County Fair would do in de
veloping this grand old county in all
times. So we must have it.
A Life of Service.
In many ways the life of Tom L.
Johnson, of Clevleand, Ohio., was an
; inspiration to every man who is striv
ing for the success of what he be
lives right principles and who dedi
cates his life to the welfare of others.
There was no self in his make-up.
Making other people happy, and help
ing the man that hari the heavy load
to bear over some rough places,
seemed to have been his greatest
source of happiness. The lives of
such men are a benediction.
Whether people agree or not agree
with Mr. Johnson's well known views
rn municipal ownership of public util"
itles they could not but admire him
for his one purpose, his fidelity
to conviction, his undaunted courage,
and the brave way in which he strug
gled against great odds, Including
monetary interests, for the Buccess of
the cause he had at heart. Undis
mayed by defeats and having con
stantly in view the good of the peo
ple whom he serve? he returned once
and again to the conflict.
In some respects at least he may
be cited a3 a striking example of the
success of failure. That is something
more common than many people sup
pose, and for the encouragement of
others it ought to be more fully rec
ognized than it now is. Mr. John
son's constant aim to persuade Cleve
land to buy and manage the street
car service of that city was not real
ized. But he did fuicceed in securing
I a great reduction in fares and in
giving Cleveland one of the very best
street car systems in the country, and
that was no small triumph.
Besides that his success in this
particular awakened new interest
and determination in other cities to
get better car service for their peo
ple. He gave his whole life to the
public, and the good he did will
never be known, as the influence of
his noble life, and the many acts of
unselfishness that he performed,
will never die. Lives that his touch
ed, will take up the work that he
laid down, and carry it on. The
world would be better off it it had
more such men in it.
World's Colton Supply.
President Hobhs, of the National
Association of Cotton Manufacturers,
has started the discussion of whore
the future supply of the world'* cot
ton is to come from. He declares
that there are a billion and a half
people in the world. Only one-third
of this number?500 million?is
completely clothed, 750 million are
only partly clothed, and 250 million
! are practically not. clothed at all. To
cloth the whole world, he declares,
will take forty-two million bales of
cotton a year, instead of the seven
teen million now raised annually by
by the world.
In commenting on the speech of
President Hobbs the New York Jour
nal of Commerce makes several
i points of interest to the cotton grow
ers of the South. It declares the
j Southern grower thinks too much of
j the price of cotton per pound and too
! little of the cost of cotton per pound.
! It points out that profit in cotton can
I be made by reducing the cost of mak
jin? and marketing, just as well as in
(restricting the production in the hope
'of keeping up the price. The price of
making cotton con only be reduced
by the introduction of machinery for
its cultivation, gathering and ginning.
These machines will come in time.
The Journal of Commerce points
the same mcral to the mills and man
ufacturers of cotton, viz: that their
salvation lies not so much in cheap
cotton which in view of the demand
?the world demand?the possible
demand for a forty-two million bale
crop instead of seventeen millions?
is an iridescent dream?as in the
manufacturers lessening their costs
of manufacturing, improving the
quality of their goods and reaching
wider markets and with improving
selling facilities. These things will
all come about by the time all the
heathens learn to wear clothes. Cot
ton will be king, and the South as
his realm, will be the richest country
on the face of the globe in time to
