THE M1ANNING OIL MILL has been recently bought

career und'r the present ownership we extend our thanks to al

for a continuance of your support for the following additional
FIRST : Ours is a local company-not a dollar of its
stock is owned outside of South Carolina.
SECOND: We pay arnually to the Town and County
Treasurers over $600 taxes which helps that much towards pay
ing the expenses of our local government.
THIRD: It costs us about $30,000 per year to manufacture
the seed we purchase, and of this amount, $20,000 is spent right
here at Manning. In other words, when you sell us a ton of seed
66 23 bushels) you get market price for the seed and the com

you sell a ton of seed to the other fellow, you get the ma ket price
for the seed, and SOME OTHER COMMUINITY'gecs the benefit
of the money paid out to-manufacture them.
We could mention a number of other reasons, but we think
the above is sufficient to convince you that it pays to pitronize
