The cotton mill men who visited
Clifton and Paoolet last week reaohed
the conclusion that the most effeoiive
way of helping the operatives of those
mills would be to give them employ
ment, helping them to move themselves
and their furniture to new locations.
It la likely that some 20 families will
have employment In the Laurens Cot
