FARMERS' OIL MILL.
Movement Assumes Larger Propor
tion To Be Made.
Ti :r,t ananu; meeting ..i the
st.ckh lder. 1f the Farier' Oil \ill
will be held in the court house here
on Wednesday. MIay i8th. at 10
o'clock a. in.. when a permanent vr
ganization will be eJected. The tirst
organization some time ago was
merely temporary. and at the meeting
on the i8th a permanent constitution
will be adopted and a board of di
rectors to serve for the ensuing year
The first installment of the capital
stock has been called for. and a char
ter will probably be secured by the end
of the week. The management have
been very active in making arrange
nients so that work can be speedily
pushed forward. A location has been
secured in the rear of Mr. Robt. W.
Davis' residence-two acres at a pricce
of $550. A number of bids have been
called for and received for putting in
the necessary machinery and the con
tracts will be let as soon as the per
manent board of directors is chosen.
The movement has assumed much
larger proportions during the past
several days. The promoters of the
proposed oil mill at Whitmire have
united with the Newberry people and
have decided not to build at Whit
mire. A good deal of stock has been
secured at Chappells also. At the
meeting on the i8th it is very proba
ble that the stockholders will be asked
to increase the amount of capital
stock from S3o.ooo to $40.ooo in order
to meet the increased demands.
The management are now investi
gating the advisability of establishing
an ice plant to be run in connection
with the oil- mill. The necessary
power will be in the mill and ice coula
be manufactured at a very small cost.
Such an enterprise is badly needed
here. But nothing definite has as yet
been done in this direction.
