that the Mollohon Manufacturing
company had an exhibit there. I
trust that there were many others
from Newberry county. The ex

hibit of cotton was quite interesting.
A new variety of cotton was shown.

also saw the celebrated Floradora
cotton but were not impressed with
it. While passing through horti

of seed rye, and one said to the other.
