South Carolna'at the Show.
As so many of our people are gone,
to Atlanta, it may be of a great deal of
interest to them to know that the South
Carolina exhibit has attracled a grat
deal of attention. What the Ltlanta
C:nstitution so well and generously
sayA in reference to the exhibit will be
greatly appreciated by all of oul
pe,lple. The exhibit "put8 to shame
that of any any other State upon the
groundils," -V the Constitution T.i;
in saying a great de-LI, and as much is
an b-dy could po?-sibly wi,h. atd a
great deal more than oug t to be vx
pec;e.1 a< the Legislat ure did absolutely
dothing t->wards a State exhi-,it The
South Carolina exhibit at t'e Exposi
tion represents the unselfi-zhnes4 and
patriotism of a few people.
We take the following estr:-et- f romt
the very elaborate report of what
South Carolina has done at the great
Among the States which have made
a representation at the Cottom States
and International Exposition none de
serves more attention or will attract
more comment than South Carolina.*
* * * But all this is of the pa;t.
South Carolina is here. She is riot
only here in name, but she ii here
with such aa exhibit as puts to shame
that of ainy other State upon the
The display from South Carolina is
full, comprehensive and worthy even
the greatest State in the Union- It
shows a variety of product wonderful
to behold, and which uut be a sur
prise to even the South Carolinians
who visit here.
The South Carolina display is to be
found in tbe agrricutltural building.
The approach to it is niost striking.
It is enter'ed by a huge gateway, the
immense balustrades on ei.her sidec
being formed of phosphate rocks. The
and suggestive, and most all those
who had supposed that South Carolina
was a cotton State with cotten milling
as the only industry possible, grow.ing
out of cotton growing, will be pleased.
The department of ornithology chal
lenges comparison with anything to be
found in the United States Govern
ment building. That aevoted to fish
is also wvell worth attention. In a
]arge case are to be found samnple< of
the various grades of c'ot, bieginuintg
with the most brittle short fibre? and
concluding with the long fibre sea
island, some of the. fibre.. .f which
measure out almos i.ix inched. Cm rain
grades of this sea i.ta,.d cotton are!
bringing- to-dag3in the market fr.)m 40
to 4.5 cents per pound, an-t the poorest.
of it commands easily 12 and 15 cents.
A growing cotton stalk in a glass case
is also an object of a great deal of
attention. One of .the most unique
displays is that devoted to rice. The
display is in the shape of a cupola
built 'over a pedestal with columns
which look at a distance like brown
marble, but on near approach are seen
to be glass filled with rice.seed. Im
mediately under the cupolt stands a
sheaf of the grain, while all arou~nd it
in cans and barrels is th-i rice i" its
various stages and in its ditlerent
qualities from the time it leaves the
sheaf until ready for the table.
THE TOBACCO INDUSTRY.
Near by is another display, the story
of which is remarkable.
The growth of the tobacco industry
has been withont parallel in the agtri
cultural history of the State. * * *
The fact is tbte iisplay is such a one
as must draw attention not only to
South Carolina, but to her people.
When we consider that this favored
region is inhabited by 1,151,149 people
according to the census of 1890, living
in 217,000 dwellitigs, we find aweabthy
developed community capable of taking
much of everything that comnes their
way. South Carolina supports a large
number of excellent schools and pubV c
institutions fully op to the standard
of the most advanced States in the
Uniont. The debt of the State is S6,
500,000 and is scarcely $5 per capita,
The State stands thirteenth in wealth
in the Union, and in the single year of
1894, not withstanding the hard times,
madec an increase of 53.300,000. It is
not in the cotton fields alone, as has
been already stated, that South Caro
lina excela. The advantages of her
water power have beeni such that the
State already leads in cotton mann
facturing, and the ssme power must
give her a like supremacy in everything
in which motive power becomes a
LEADS IN 3IANUFACTURlING
W hile speaking of the manufacturing
capabilities of the State it may be said
that Spantanburg County enjoys the
proud distincti,n1 of operating more
spindles and looms. and of investing
more money in the cotton manufactu
ring business than any other ,county in
the South. There are in the county
sixteeni distinct companies and, count
ing toein process ofconstruction,
twenty-two separate mills, with c>m
'l dapital stock 'of $5,364,o00, ope
ing 390,558 spind.tes and 11,984
ma, consuming annmally nearly 150.
0 bales of cotton, .employing 8,00
operatives and payinmg out in wages
and for spindles- cotton, etc.. near!
$10,000,003 a year. When all the mills
now projecied are completed, one-half
the population of the county will be
dependent upon these cotton mills.
Most of the operatives are native born,
having been drawn from the farms to
the mills; they have no disturbing
hbor organizatioas and thcre is no
need of the labor agitator, at all dif
ferences b,tween employers and em
ployees are settled among themselves
and in accordrnce with wise and just
S:ate laws that have been enacted, the
operrtives are intelligent and contented,
and in skill and efficiency their su
perior are not to be found in New
England. Thtse mills have been pay
ing regularly 5 per cent semi-annual
dividends, and at the same time laying
aside large sums for running expenses;
many have increased and some have
doubled their original plants largely
out of surplus earnings, issuing mrrely
nominal amounts of new stock; and
the stock has btealily advanced and is
to-day quoted at from 125 to 156, and
none oftered for sale at these figures.
The succass of these mills has been
phenominal, and proves conclusively
that the Piedmont region of 6outh
Carolina is in the very heart and centre
of the manufacturing region of the

Ely's Cream Balm
is acknowledged to be the most Eliorugn
cure for Nasal Catarrh, Cold in Read and
Hay FeYer, of all remedies. It opens and
cleanses the nasal passages, allays pain
and intlammation, heals the sores, pro
tects the membrane fro-i colds, restores
the senses of taste and smell. The Balm
is applied directly into the nostrils, is
quickly absorbed ai.d gives relief at once.
The results that follow catarrh, due to the
dropping of poisonous matter into the
throat, are irritation of the bronchial tubes
and soreness of the lungs acconpanied by
a cough. In all such cases we recommend
Pineola Balm to be used in connection
with Cream Qalm.
Ely's Pineola Balsam will be found
excellent for all throat and lung inflam
mations and for
