Oil Mill Prospering-Good Sunday
Cottoa Market-Free Schol
Pomaria, Sept. 30.-Mrs. F. E.
Schumpert, of Prosperity, spent last
Wednesday night with Mrs. J. P.
Mr. T. R. Cox, president of the Po
maria Oil and Manufacturing Com
pany was in Pomaria for a few days
last week. His health had been bad
during the whole summer, and his
friends here were glad to find that it
had improved very much.
The directors of the Pomaria Oil
and Manufacturing Company held a
meeting several weeks ago and
found the affairs of the company
in an excellent condition. A dividend
of 10 per cent was declared, and, be
sides, a surplus was carried over to
the following year. Mr. R. D. Jones,
of Simpsonville, S. C., is the superin
tendent of the mill.
The editorial, in Friday's issue,
touehing upon the question of those
free scholarships which give more
than tuition in our state colleges, is
one in which a good many of our peo
ple are interested. It is a question
which they would like to see furth
er discussed, both as to its ethics and
its bearing on good citizenship. Cer
tainly the way in which such schol
arships are now conferred is open to
objections, for those boys and girls
who most need them, have little
chance of obtaining them. Only those
who are in circumstances that will
-enable them to prepare themselves
for college-those who would proba
bly go to college anyway, even if
they do not get the scholarship
stand much of a chance of winning
them in a competitive examination.
- Mr. Roland Ringer is now clerk
ing for the Setzler Company. He
takes- the place of Mr. E. B. Feagle,
who recently resigned to accept other
Pomaria cannot boast of any
churches, yet she has a live Sunday
school. It meets every Sunday af
ternoon in the Bethel school house.
The enrolment is 55 with an average
attendance of about three-fourths of
that number. This Sunday schoo~l nev
er goes into "winter-quarters," as
is the custom with some country
sehools, but the attendance is
as-Iarge during the winter as in the
other months of the year. Mr. W. S.
Seybt is the efficient superintendent.
Pormaia changes cotton weighers
each year. Mr. Albert Richardson
was elected to 'this position some time
ago and will discharge its
duties for the coming season. He is
an excellent' young man, honest and
painstaking, and will endeavor to
give a "squale deal" all around.
By the way, Pomaria is one of the
few places-are there any others in
the county, or even in the state?
in Ishieh the buyer pays half of the
expense. of weighing 'the cotton
This seems to 'be an equitable ar
rangement, for there is no evident
reason why, the farmer, rather than
the buyer, should bear this expense,
even though it is small.
In proportion to her size, Pomaria
is one of the best cotton markets in
the county, and she keeps the price
well up at the top. Comparatively
very little was bought here this las'
week, however; probably not more
than a third of as much as the weel
preceding. A good many of the far
mers are getting to the place now
.where they can hold, and they will
not sell at the present decline.
