MAYES' BOOK AND VARIETY STORE
Books, Stationery, Imported thina,
Sporting Goods and Bric-a-Brae.
The presence of an exclusive stationery
and novelty goods establishment
among the retail interests of a
town is one of the sure signs of its
importance as a trade centre, for only
in the popular centres of supply
throughout the country are such concerns
usually found. Such an enter
prise, as well, reflects the refined and
educated tastes of the community in
which it flourishes, the mmds of whose
people constantly yearn for the knowledge
and entertainment found in books
and current literature. To satisfy
this demand the Mayes' Book and Variety
Store carries constantly in
stock a large collection of the works
of leading authors in. prose and poetry,
popular and popular priced novels
current literature in magazine form,
periodicals, etc. The very best facilities
and inducements are offered to
those building up libraries, for special
orders secure prompt attention, and
any book or set of books are secured
for patrons at guaranteed prices. The
Mayes Book and Variety Store is the
authorized distributing agency and depository
for all the school books used
in the Newberry county public schools
and students' supplies of all kinds are
carried constantly in stock. The splendid
stock equipment also comprises office
stationery and fixtures, splendid
collections of stationery, writing materials
and novelty goods, including a
large line of toys and articles appropriate
for presnts for young and old.
' This concern is also the selling agency
in this section for the Eastman Kodak
and photographers' supplies, and is
headquarters for athletic goods of j
even* description, and Mayes' Linen
Lawn stationery. The Mayes' Book
and Variety Store is always ready to
eupply on demand or make to order
picture frames of any description, carrying
in stock a full line of mouldings
for that purpose. A recent acquisition
to the extensive lines of novelties
carried is the monogram stencil. By
the aid of these monogram stencils
- - J X-U - * ??kl? A r,n_
lacnes are saveu tue wuumc mm &unoyance
of sending their linens out to
be stamped, for with one of these
stencils they can do the work at home
at no cost. The uses and advantages
of this stencil are cheerfully demonstrated
at the store.
This business has been operated by
John B. Mayes during the past ten
years, he having succeeded W. G. May
es. He is one of the most active of
Newberry's business men, and has
served as .president ;>f the chamber
of commerce. In the management of
the Mayes' Book and Variety Store he
"has demonstrated, by the successful
Tesults achieved in trade buildi
both business and executive ability
and tempermental qualities which
make friends rapidly.

sessed to maintain for the farmers and
horseowners of Newberry and its adjoining
counties money-saving inducements
in supplying all needs for
horses and mules, and livery accommodations,
and in the magnitude of operations
which characterize the annual
volume of business done, Newberry
can boast in the enterprise conducted
by G. W. Jacobs, of being the home
and headquarters of one of the lead
ing establishments in its line in this
section of the country. To the credit
of the owner of this concern it can be
said that the selling of horsos has
been raised to the high plaue of business
conducted on strictly legitimate
principles, thereby fostering that sense
of security which springs from fair

j prices and honest representation to
| the point of pointing out blemishes or
! deffto.rs which mav psoaDe the notice
of the prospective purchaser. Going
back over the career of G. W. Jacobs'
establishment since its inception this
principle of reliability is in evidence
during every day of its history, and it
explans fully and satisfactorily the
reason for his success, always estimating
popular confidence at its true
worth and as being essential to progress
in all trade relations. Today Mr.
Jacobs conducts one of the best livery
establishments in this section, maintaining
a stable of stylish road horses
and buggies and vehicles of all kinds
to supply all demands of the local and
traveling public for first-class livery
accommodations. In his several buildings
are accommodations for two hundred
animals. Mr. Jacobs buys and
ships to Newberry several carloads of
mules annually. He is therefore well
'known and thoroughly established at
| the original sources of supply and this |
J fact surrounds him with advantages
i which enable him to maintain ior pai;
rone the best possible market condi-1
! tions, for he purchases only such ani- |
jmals as are adapted to the needs of I
! home people and his experience has
qualified him well' in a knowledge of
these needs. The result is at once
apparent in the variety of weights,
ages and qualities, and prices of horses
and mules that can always be found in
his stables, thus enabling a patron to
make a suitable selection at a satisfactory
figure. As showing the magnitude
of the business done by Mr. Jai
cobs it can be stated that he raises all

| eight hundred acres under cultivation j
in Xewberry and Lexington counties, j
! about seven hundred acres of which hfl
| owns. He also owns considerable real
| estate in the city of Xewberry, among
his holdings being an entire block between
Caldwell and College streets in
front of the new court house. From
the above it will be seen that the motive
uppermost in the conduct of the
business is to render an honest equivalent
in the livery department by a
- - - ? i - j ~
reliable service ana in tne suites ue-1
partment by such animals as measure j
up to the highest standards. Such aj
motive is always app:reciated, and as j
a consequence a select, representative j
and constantly growing patronage has j
| been built up through this entire sec-1
j tion. This business was established
I seven years ago and has flourished unj
til Mr. Jacobs has, by hustling and reI
liable methods, built up a business secj'ond
to none in the country.
SOUTHERN COTTON OIL COMPANY.
L. W. Floyd, Manager.
There is no denying the fact that
the enterprises throughout the country
engaged in the production and refining
of cotton seed oil have accomplished
! great results for the farmers by creatj
irig a market for cotton seed, which

for fertilizers which are compounds of j
the cotton seed and -other plant nour-;

j best results in tobacco and cotux wui-j

the Southern railway, in the eastern j
section of the town. The plant consists !
of several buildings, in all of which
a force of fifty men are employed, j
During recent years the Southern Cotton
Oil company's high grade fertilizers
have'increased rapidly in favor

j giving special attention to the needs
j of the farmer for supplies in the field,

As dealers in fertilizers this concern

goods of established merit and reputation,
such as the productions of the
F. S. Royster Guano company and the
Columbia Guano company brands, all
of which have been selected because

The New South, now passing
through the period of transformation
frcm a quiet agricultural section to a
country full of the busy spirit of industrial
effort, and steadily achieving
a prosperity, long withheld, arising
fr.om the invaluable advantages of
r.lnv?ofn o n /I vnCAn rAQfn 11 "n ooc ill
dVSll* aiiU . 1 vOU V.4 i K, L Ci X llivoo ili
cotton, has been the theme and refrain
of able writers in recent years,
who have all greeted the advent of
the industrial day. They all recognized
the fact that Nature had been lavish
with her advantages of soil and
climate, to the extent of making this
section of the world a source of supply
for that universal article 'of necessity,
cotton. They wondered why
the activities of the people identified
with this great staple had stopped at
the cotton gin or railroad station. But
this condition, so far as it applies to
Newberry, has been changed. Here
we have evory facility tr> us>-2 f-v^yy j
'part of the c~;ton pre!".ce l. One of j
th<? contributing factors to This con- i
di'ticn is tlie Fanners' Oil Mill, which
' The Farme
began operations in 1904. The man'gg
vho has he:;?ed develjo such ati in !
dustry, who has risked his capital in
oil mills, and who is always working
to further deveop the industry must
have credit for what he has done.
Likewise, the cotton grower is indicnpn^ble
to the oil mill owner. He
I must supply the mill with seed or the,

Thus it is clearly seen that each is:
dependent upon th& other and as this
is one industry which fhe South controls,
each should work with the other j
to reach the highest results.
The cotton-grower has been slow:
to recognize the intrinsie value of ;
what he produces, and by taking this,
stand he has stood in the way of his
own prosperity, in the past he seemi

money which should be kept in the
The time has come, however, when
the more intelligent class of cotton
growers are waking up to the mis-'
take they hav? been making r,hey rue'
beginning to see that in cotton seed
meal and hulls they have an ideal
feed, and in cotton seed meal they
get an ideal fertilizer for all crops. .
In 1907 an ice plant was added to
the equipment and today the Farmers';
Oil Mill supplies ice to the entire city,
their wagons making daily trips to
the homes and places of business. I
Last year fertilizer mixing machinery i
was added and today the company is
manufacturing one of the best ferti- j
lizers on the market, and one which i
is favored by a large number of far[
mers for the results they have secured.

who have shown their faith in the

future of the town by investing their
money in manufacturing plants are: i
