CHANCE TO DO SOMETHING
Citizens Ca.n Now Get to Work
?\nd Build Ice Plant
Thc news editor of the Advocate
is in receipt of ?1 letter from ii
party who is desirous of locating
an icc plant in the town of Bcn

The man in question is now in
charge of an ice plant in another
town in thc state and has had much
experience in tho business. Ho
says that he has been making some
inquiries about this field and
thinks that a ten ton ice plant
here would bo splendid investment.
The people here have been get
ting their ice from surrounding
towns. It is probable that Fay
etteville furnishes the greater part
of the ice, but sonic comes from
Hamlet, Darlington, Sumter and
other towns. Of course thc icc is
ncccssarially higher from this fact.
In shipping it there are thc
freight charges to bc met and al
so the loss from melting By thc
time thc icc gets herc it has to be
sold higher than would be the case
if it were manufactured right in
Bennettsvillc needs more manu
facturing enterprises and of that
tho citizens, those who desire to
sec the town grow, are well aware.
Backed by the best country in
the south this town could well
support an iee plant as well as
many another manufacturing en
terprise. Another argument in
favor of thc location of an ice
plant is that the money would be
kept in circulation in the town
where it now ^ocs out. This
might be only thc beginning of
thc establishment of a- number of

men, the insurance men, thc law

Our missionaries, Misses Carroll |

of ministering to the sick, tho
afflicted, thc poor. A work for
which they are especially titted:
one too, which could not be done
by the preachers. Their hands
have been full of w;ork their hearts
full of sympathy during these
days of severe colds cte. These
missionaries need (and richly de
j serve) the practical support of this
I section of Marlboro. They must
have tho" wherewithal" to proper

opportunity for the man w ho be-1
