Prosderity's Development in the Recent
Past and Her Bright Future.
Prosperity, S. C., October 28.
Mr. E. A. Counts- has about com
pleted his residence on Elm Street
and expect to move next week.
Mr. R. I. Stoudemayer is rapidly
moving along the building of Dr.
Jacob S. Wheeler's dwelling on the
beautiful site formerly occupied by
the door and sash factory. The
erection of other buildings is being
talked of, and this expansion is in
accord with the demand for houses.
The future is before us. A new
spirit is evident among our people.
It is true that there are divisions
among us, but common business
prudence will direct this to the
greater progress of our town. The
field is open and is wide enough for
the activities of all. Without uni
ted action a cotton seed oil mill has
been a possibility, and now the
open field.for a cotton mill is en
gaging attention, and this oppor
t unity will not be passed over much
longer. Our town has had a hard
climb up grade and has met with
many backsets, but the top of the
grade, we believe, is nearly reached.
We are not now deplortng the want
of Unity among our people--for
unity often produces stagnation
but we would rather set onr faces
toward the rising stn; and let there
be rivalries, even though somewhat
bitter at times, still the general
good of the town will be subserved.
With our two banks as radiating
centres, there should go out waves
of industrial enterprises that would
make joy in our hearts.
This is Fair week and many of
our people are going and coming.
