-After several failureb a1d so long
a time, tho prospects for P cotton mil
at Pickens are very bright, so bright,
indeed, that we may say, it is an as
sured fact. Arrangements have been
completed for the erection of a $250,
000 mill at this placo, provided $80,
000 will be given by the town and.
county, and convassers who are at;
work are very much encouraged over
the outlook. Mr. W. M. Hagoodi,
Pr esident of the Gleenwoodl Mill, who,
together with Messrs. J. McD Bruce,,
J. P. Carey and others, of the town,
have been wvorking on the project for
some Lime, has been North and have
been assured of all the help they need
for the consummation of the enter
prise, and as w as remarked in the
outset, at the start of this article, the
only thing that will keep the milli
back is the people of Pickens failing
to raise their part of the money. This
is their chance for a mill and we are
sure they wvill not throw it aiway.
