Easley News Notes
Dirs. Minerva Burgess. wife of the late Wi1
ilantillurgess, died on the moorning of Nov. I$ itt
the home of her daughter, i rs. Mollie Farrat.
at Glenwood mill, from old age, being 71 years
old at the tune of herdeath She is sirvived by
six children, all grown. Mr. Andrew Burgess
of liasley is a son. The remains were 'arried to
Piedmont, her former home, Fridiy and in
terred in the cemetery at that place. She was a
good woman. Pence to her ashes,
V. V. O'I)ell, who runs a small 'farm three
miles west of i-;nsley, ilanted his entire crop of
cotton this year in the "'Columbia Long Staple."
Ile sold last week to the -Judson mills, Uree'i
ville, sixteen bales for 1 4 cents per pould,
nggregating more than $l,200 for the lot. Mr
)'i)ell says that he made more cotton pe- rere
than when he planted short staple, aindl that the
cost and eiitiviatioti wits about the satne.except
that he paid more for the seed and had to haul
the seed cotton to Greenville to get it gihned on
a roller gin. It has been tienonstrated that
'iekens county produces the finest long staple
cotton tnade in the South. The Judson mills,
we utlerstand, will operate a roller gin next
year in l'asley for 'the benefit of farmers who
plant the long staple. It would seem a good
policy for the farmers near Easley to plant
more of this kind of cotton.
After an illness of only nine days, Mrs. llattie

It is said that one nigh: last week It was re

lie would not sell less than a keg, however, to
one person. Ills prices seemed reasonable. so
he was tint long in d isposing of the entire load
