BUILDING THE DAM.
Uolug on with the Work at Wares
Rain may seem to make the sunshine
brighter, but certainly it does not make
the dam-work lighter. Bad weather
does hinder progress on all lines of
work, but we are giud to report that
going into winter quarters shall be a
thing unknown fo our citizens, and con
sequently, mueh will be accomplished
toward the rearing of our town, while
the bears are slooping.
The dam is gradually growing an<i
begins to look like the great water
barrier that it is intended to be. The
coffer-dam is now being constructed
and soon the work will be carried on in
the waters of the Saluda river. Rather
cool work this would seem, but some oi
our men are dauntless.
People are continually moving in and
around this new business centre. Many
families of strangers are gathered from
all directions to compose our littlo
Mr. T. J. Snyder, of the construction
company, has moved bis family Into a
now residence on Main Street.
Mr. Dogue, an engineer from Massa
chusetts, is here us general superin
tendent of the factory building.
The health of this community is un
surpassed. If the present health con
ditions to prevail, we cannot recom
mend any physician to come among us,
us tboy would by force of circumstances
bo obliged to change their profoBsion.
The moral atmosphoro of this place
has boon greatly slandered, for it was
never anything like as pernicious as
that which pervades the- most of our
smaller towns; but it is oven now im
proving, so that we hope another year
will find it as pure ?a becomes an in
dustrious, Christian village.
? The newly-worked streets are in a
bod condition since the rain, but side
walks on Main Street make it pleasant
for the pedestrian.
A happy Christmas for all.

Get the Best for Your Money.
Did your grooer ever tell you when
you ordered "Clifton" flour that he
had "something just as good?" Do
you know why he tells you this? it Is
because ho buys some Inferior flour for
less money and is trying to word this
off on you and get a few cents more
profit on it. This is a perfectly legiti
mate thing for the grocer to do, but
you ought to seo that you get the best
value for your money. And to do this
insist upon his sending you ' Clifton,"
the finest patent flour. If your grocer I
does not keep it, ho or you oan get it of |
M. H. Fowler or T. N. Barksdale.

KYLE hay Press
Farmers take care of what you make.
There is as much in saving as thero is
in making, and if you bale your hay,
fodder, oats, shucks etc., at tho proper
time you not only save room and time,
but you savo 33 per cent of the nutri
clous matter that ovaporate3 when it is
not baled. Tho
Kyle Hay Press
Alls a long felt want with farmers. It j
is the best yet made. Tho opinion
seems to be unanimous that the KYLE
BAY PRESS is unexcelled by any
press on the market. It is going to
the front, already a great number of
them have been sold, you only need to
try it to bo pleased. It Is easy oper
ated by 2 men and 1 horee. It Is cheap,
durable, Bimplo in construction and
easily mounted. It is the only press
that pan be made or repaired on the
farm, it has no casting to br->nk and
cause long delay. No other press has
this advantage. It is the only press
that the farmer can afford to buy, it
pays for itself out of the first crop
Every farmer can own his own press,
and balo his hay at tho proper tlmo.
