Pick.-Us about 15 years ago, but it
failed. None is raised for market
now. In 1899, 304 acres were plant
ed in the Eastern part of the State.
The yieid was 224,898 pounds, worth
$33,908. In 1902, 34,912 acres were
plantad in tabacco aud the yield was
25,524,40S pounds, worth about three
million dollars. These figures are
takeu from the Florence correspond
ence of The State. If they are correct
they indicate that there are millions
in tobacco. The amount of money
received is $89 per acre. That more
than doubles cotton when a bale to
the acre is produced. In the Pied
mont counties of.-the State 34,912
acres do noAt produce more than 12,
000 bales-of cotton, which will bring
about $16 an acre including the seed.
