The Fifth Lnrircsl in Hie ("nlted States

The Greek colony at Spartnuburg
ranks as one of the largest in the
United States. These thrifty Latins
are past masters of fruit handling
business and make money In a busi
ness that would ruin an ordinary bus
iness man in about 48 hours, as a line
stock of goods may be rotten in less
time than that.
a letter was recently mailed In
Sparta, Greece, addressed to a Greek,
giving ohly His name and under i!
the It tiers "U. S. A.", no city 01" town
or even state being given. The b t
ter was delivered to n Spartanburg
Greek by Carrier .lerome Gaffney.
The Cnited States post oil'ee depart
ment first sent tiie letter to the largest
Greek colony in this country, and.
when the inan was not there, to the
next highest and then on .'.own to
Spartanburg, which Was the fifth
largest in iho Cnited. States, where
the Gieek to whom tlie letter was ad
dressed was located.
Phe Spartanburg colony embraces
not only the Greeks who live here,
but those who live In all the surround
ing towns. S'b l< Tracas Is tiie head
of the coloiiy and his word is law.
Kvory Greek in upper South Carolina
looks to him for orders and obeys him.
Any Greek in the hunch would pick
up ai d return to Greece at a word
from Nick Tracas. It is a pretty safe
statement to say that no Creek could
make a living in tin: territory occu
pied by ihis colony if Tracas objected
to his remaining here. However,
there is no knowledge that such au
thority has ever I i en used in an arbi
trary manne:- and .Mr. Tr.ikas has
made bin.self -. ..,.<?? and useful lead
er to his fellow countrymen, being
hlmscll a man of unusual business
These (Fecks are ir.es: polite in

thos-3 with a very limited knowledge
of the English language have ,\ way
of understanding enough of their cus
tomers' wishes to supply what i>
wanted. And there is never any
doubt that they know enough of Kt;^

The Advertiser office and related the
incidents of a severe hail storm in
their community on Wednesday after
noon of last week.
According to the statements of these
gcntlcmi n, the storm lasted over ten
minutes and the hail was accompanied
by nitich wind. In fact, that the wind
did as mttch damage as the bail,
WhiCh was the most severe in that
Community for yeni'8. The corn suf
fered most, especially the old corn;
this was stripped to the ground in
inosi places, while a great (leal of it
was cut off as with a scythe. The
young cotton, however, was not ma
terially damaged. 'five belt of the
storm Was possibiy t nr. e-o.ua i tei s of

During tiie storm Wednesday after
noon, a mule belonging to Mr, .1. 0.
Haines was killed by lightning. The
mule was in the stall at the time; the
boll struck the gable end of the barn
and ran down the side and killed the
mtlle instantly, though not touching a
calf quartered in an adjoining stall.
