APPEAL FOR iELIEF FUND
Governor Manning .Aks People of

appeal to the people of the state to
contribute to the fund for the relief of

lower counties. and he has received
accurate information as to conditions I
in other sections .f the state.

?p have already received some voluntary

Working For Textile Hall.
Greenville.-Within a short time
those who are working to secure a
textile hall for Grcenville will hold
th an important meeting, calling all com
,. mittees together, and will pre 2.!Y
launch a determined campaign to se
cure the additional stock subscrip
t tions neiessary. At present approxi
mately $30.000 has been subsrribed
toward the exposition hall and audi
torium. The original plan was to
raise $75,000. including valuation on
le the lot. It is possible that a lot will
be donated, in which event something
like $60,000 would be needed for the
building. The promoters of this splen
did enterprise state that the hall must
be and will be erected here.
r- Other cities are eager to secure the
id Southern Textile exposition, and the
to first chance offered, one of those
i cities will step in and take from
Greenville a chance to have here a
an wonderful institution. However, say
rd those in touch with the situation
e Greenville will not give the others
e a chance. but will secure the hall and
at will have it erected for the 1917 tex
Ss tile show.

SELLING HIGH 4
To My Customers and Friends:
We wish to state that we have a fnll corp of Tobacco '
Buyers, and that our prices are still gooa cn a!! gr.ies of
tobacco, and especially on bright, ripe tobacco.
We are still selling tobacco every day from twenty cents
and up. Wd could fill up a paper showing prices around
twenty cents and better, but time and space will not permit.
All Cothran wants is an opportnnity to show yon what
" he can. I will stay by every pile put on my floor as long as
I can get a bid. I realize that the farmers have been hard
hit, and nobody knows how to sympathize with them any
better than I do, the warehouseman being in the same posi
tion. Our market will close the 25th; bring your tobacco to
market right away and sell it as soon as you can.
Tobacco prices will not get any higher this season, and
might go lower, so sell while it is selling high. Come to the
Central Warehouse this and next-week.
I thank you for past favors, and at the same time, wish
you success another year. -
I am yours for best of Service,
R. D. COTHRAN. Proprietor,.
