In another column is published
in this issue an interesting report
by Mr. Finlayson, of his visit to
North Carolina, where he investi
gates the installment plan of build
ing cotton mills. We comlnlend
it to the careful attention of all
the farmors and others mnterosted
in the cotton mills. It is no lon
ger a question, whetlhor millm
Should bo built, t(hat is admitted
by all, and the importance of these
enterprisos is growing d1ily 1up1on10 I
all who Ire concorned in the pro
gross and material advancement of
the South. In other counties of
the State cotton mills ha11ve bIen
built and operated with profit to
the stockholdulrs and untold bonme
fit to the Co1111111 co nt.ies in wliich
thIey aro located. The citizons of
Picko(ns cotlity have been soroly
lrossod by railroad taxes an11d have

Of any kind, but the tiie 1 ha1s ar1
