EASLEY, S. C., OCT. 26, 1883.
How glad it should make Easley,
and all those whe patronize her,
feel when the thought of her being
a first class market is realized.
She not only can head the list as
being the nst progressive, in bus
iness, of any town of her size, in
the State of South Carolina, and
can also compete strongly with
other towns, which are tenfold
larger than herself. But without
doubt she Can afford to pay the
highest market prices for cotton, in
the first place, because the cotton
buyers are backed by firms so very
-strong as to enable them to pay
prices ; and in the second place,
the buyers are men of such sound
judgment and business-like turns,
that the farmers take p'easure in
permitting them to handle their
cotton. The finest sample of this
product, between Charlotte and At
lanta is obtained at Easley. The
farmers can get in return for this
staple, either the cash, or the mer
chandise, whichever might suit
them. As will be seen in a letter
from a Pickens correspondent, Eas
ley keeps peace with the growing
city of Greenville. Then isn't it
altogether useless, for the farmers
of this County to go there to sell
their cotton and make their pur
chases, when they can get as much
here for it, and pnrchase their
goods just as cheap. Time and
money can be saved by patroni
zing your own market. If Picken s
could get up a progressive spirit in
trade ; if she could make a mar ket
of herself, and could offer some
such advantages to the farmiug
interest of the County, to this small
p~ortion of the Piedmont section
atll the eyes of business Carolina
would be turned. But so long as
she lies dormant and makes not
a market of her own, and her pa-1
per so erroneously turns the atten
tion of the citizens to a market o
another county, without making a
comparison of markets, she can
not hope for better days ini this
special line. The idea of publish
ing what could be done in Green
ville, making not the slightest
mention of' three grand markets in
her own County, apparently shows
a want of the spirit of enterprise,
whatever might have been the in
tention of the "Sentinel." Look
to it citizens tlhat you first note the
advantages to be had at homo, be
fore going to the trouble and ex
jense oyf goingr out of your own
County to sell your cotton and to
do your trading. Keeljopignon

Mr. Frank Ayer, a lawer at the
bar of Barnwell, passed through
our town last week. It is his de
sire to locate somewhere in the op
country, and practice the profes
sion of law. le was. admitted to
the bar six years ago, and in that
period of time he has met with
much success. He has no special
preference for locating at a Court
House, but would be willing to lo
cate in a town near the county
seat. No place in the up-conntry
presents a better opening than Eas
ley. A good lawyer can come here
and doubtless in the course of time
build up a fine practice. Our very
efficient Trijal Justice, J. R. Gos
sett, Esq, says that Mr Ayer can
make a living here. If he can
make that now, how bright would
be his future prospects. Many
young men are entering the pro
fession and if they would but look
around them, and consider the ad
vantages of locating at such a
place as Easley, they would not
have to sit and hold their hands
for a number of years in the crowd
ed towns and cities, waiting in
their turn to receive practice.
