Flourishing and Growing Commun

Mr. William Coleman, the president
of the Glenn-Lowrie company, has
shown his faith in the future of Whit
mire by investing his money not only
in the cotton mill, which lie'has built,
ut also in other enterprises of the
town. He is now completing one of
the handsomest office and bank build
ings that we have .seen in any tQwn
in South Carolina. In fact, it would
do credit to any of the cities of this
state. It is a large two-story brick
structure, witli the mill offices on one
side and the bank on the
other, and private offices up
-stairs. He is also arranging a
large hall on the second floor for pur
poses of meetin-, as well as amuse
mient.. The first floor is finished ill
quartered oak. and the second in nat

Within the last year a model and
ill) to date school building has been
erected, which is also a credit to the
community. The cotton mill has been
in operation about three years, and
Mr. Coleman has one of the best r:- I
ganizations of any mill in this state.
His help-is intelligent and loyal, and s
the best of go(id will prevails between
'the officers and owners of the mill and
'Mr. Thad Coleman, a young man
and a relative -of Mr. Coleman, is su
perintendent of the mill and takes
great interest ill the comfort of his
operatives. The mill has thirty-two
thousand spindles -and nine- hundred
looms and is capitalized at five hun
dred thousand dollars. The mill vil
lage is on an emienilice near the mill,
and the cottages are all neat and com
fortable. and the operatives seem
happy' and contented.
This is one of the best mills in the
-state. It has been inl operation only
three years but everything is well or
-ganized and working harmoniously
-and the mill is making money.
Whitmire has grown very much in
the-last two years, and with Mr. Cole
man 's faith in its future, it would not t
be surprising- to see a very large and t

The Herald and News has made ar
range rents with Mr. Coleman to go
'back to Whitmire in about three
weeks, and we will then publish a
omplete writeup of the town.
The 'Bell Telephone company is now
building a line from Whitmire to Clin
ton which is nearly completed, and
which will bring Newberry within
talking distance of this community.
What is needed in addition to this di
t'eet, connection is a railroad from
'Whit mi re to Augest a, via Newberry
anld Saluda, and( oni to Union. .We
were toldl that an air line from Union
to Newberry would go just across the
corner of the G4lenn-Lowvrie mill build

Brothers, Sisters, Relatives and i

In this strenuous age our people .
both in the towns and cities and in
the country need to get toegtlher so
cially more frequently than they do.
s It helps to a better understanding of
one anotht-er, and we come to realize a
that there is somethinig else in the
world that is desirable besides money.
We know each other better and think t
mIore kindly of one anotfier. It makes '9
better citizens of us and better men
and women. A better understanding
es of eaclh otlher often prevents misun
One of these occasions was the fam
ily reunion at the home of Mr. Milton a
B. Caldwell, two miles from Newber
ry, on last Friday. Mr. Caldwell's
parents have been dead for more than t
twenty years, his fattier, Mr. James A.
Caldwell, having died in September,
1805, an his mother, Mrs. Jane Cald

' brothers and three sisters still living.
It Two of his brothers, JIIn W. Caldwell

c their lives to their couiltrv inl tle Civ

e brothers and sisters and the members
le of their families, as well as some of
e- his friends, come to his home on last
Friday in what lie termned a family re
Sunion He ha'd prepared a most cx
c eellent barbecue dinner and along
*e with it, roast turkey and other'good
l things that go to make a most inviting
id repast. In fact every one there pro
at nounced it a most delightful and
re pleasant occasion, and one of the
3o best dinners that could be conceived.
re The barbecue meats were cooked by
Ir that veteran Levi Kibler.
1- But apart from the most excellent
it dinner the social feature was most le
lightful. Bankers and farmers, edi
- tors, merchants and lawyers, they all
were there and spent several hours ex- I
n changing- views and swapping stories.
Of his' own family tliere were pres- I
c ent, Mri. and Mrs. J. A. Caldwell, Mr.
- and Mrs. Robert. T. Caldwell, his two C
1 brothers, and Mr. and Mrs. Frank L. (
3 Lominiek, Mrs. J. A. Mitchell, and

L were married and who have died; Mrs. I
[e W. D. Halfacre, Mrs. L. R. Bouk

y In addition to the six ehildr'en of j
I- Mr. James A. Caldwell who are living, 1
ie tere are thirty-two grandchildren

children. Two chiliren of Mr. and
Mrs. James A. Caldwell died in in
