piled by the- committee on banking,

South Carolina Diviston of the
American. Cotton Association. The
importation, of this enormous amount
of foodstuffs -into the state was made
necessary by the- eagerness of the
farmers to raise cotton, many of
them planting seventeen acres to the
.In 'a statement issued yesterday
the association declared that there
was no reason for the farmers of the
state to be panic-stricken over the
fact that the price which cotton is
now bringing forbids them planting
over a half crop of it next year. It
isdeclared that a study of the figures
collected by the committee on bank
ing, legislation and wa:houses~ of
the association ought to convince
them that a diversification of crops
in the South will prove profitable.
According to the committee state
ment that importation of food and
feodstuffs into South Carolina from
the West last year as follows: Corn
$15,000,000; mixed- feeds $13,000,
000,000; hay $12,000,000; oats $10,
000,000 flour $20,000,000; beef $15,
000,000; bacon $20,000,000; eggs
and butter $3,000,000; canned goods
$13,000,000, making a grand total of
$1 1 1,000,000.
"These figures," says the associa
tion "are purchases from this state
only and every item mit't be paid for
in cash before the goo, are deliver
ed together with the eight. This
amount could be spent at home if the
farmers of South Carolina would get
their minds oft of cotton for a few

cribing what they .term as the' "last
;hot of the Civil War," have. been

While I was not a citizen of this
state at that tihie, having conic to
Pickens , from Russell county, Ala.,
n December, 1873, and having since
'esided the greater portion of the

from good authority that a small en

this (Pickens) county on the Easley
Bridge road between where the city
3f Easley now is located and the city
Df Greenville several days after the
engagement of which they speak,
The engagement at Turner's Hill
which ocuerred after the first of May,
1865, was between some ten or
twelve ex-Confederate soldiers and
a squad of Federal cavalry. The
The Felerals were enroute to Green
ville from toward Anderson and had
at drove of horses and mules which
they had taken from the farmers
along the way. Thy small band of
ex-Confederate soldiers from the
Slabtowr section who through one of
their scouts were informed of their
number and the depredations they
were comiitting, resolved to try and
overtake and kill or capture and re
lake the horses and mules they had
taken from the citizens. Having
weard the direction the Yankees were
woing, the Rebels guessed that they
vere enrout,2 to Greenville and that
hey would cross the Saluda river
ither at Easley's or the bent bridge.
o after getting in front of the Van
cees they picked Turner's Hill, at
he junction of the roads leading
rom :Anderson and old Pickensville,
s a good place to make the attack.
The Rtebs left their horses in the
14Jd(Is ?arby and hid behind a rail

nad from Anderson. When the

An address of section-w(d. -inte.

Sunday, March 20th, in .the First

that territory by Dr. Mullins and
"Dr. Mullins speaks in eight cities
in this state," said the Rev. J. ur
man Moore, of Greenville, publicity
man for the Greenville meeting yes
terday, "and the Baptist men and
women of the section surrounding
Greenville are bent upon having a
great congregation to greet the
speaker when he steps upon the plat
form in Greenville."
"Within easy reach of Greenville,"
said Mr. Moore, "there reside iorty
thousand Baptists, a large percent of
whom are subscribers to the 75 Mil

to hear first of the great work being
undertaken in the needy lands across
"Indications are," said Mr. Moore,
"that from two to twenty men and
women are coming from each of th
1-50 Baptist churches within twenty
live to thirty miles of Greenville."
This paper goes into many Baptist
homes and we urge that a goodly
number of - people motor over to
Greenville at 3 :30 next Sunday to
ei'ar this great Baptist leader.
