SOUTH CAROLINA POPULATION BY COLOR
Census Bureau Issues Preliminary Statistics of Whites
Washington. D. C, Sept. 5, 1911.?
Preliminary comparative statistics of
the population of South Carolina were
Issued today by Census Director Du
rand. The tabulations were made un
der the supervision of Chief Statisti
cian Win. C. Hunt of the Division of
Population and are the result of the
first count, in detail, of the returns of
the Thirteenth Census. The figures
are, therefore, subject to possible re
vision but it is believed that the
changes, If any. will not be material.
The figures relate to the Slate, the
city of Charleston, the other cities of1
10,000 and over, and the counties. The j
or decrease for the same classifica
tion for the decade, 1900-1910, also is
stated. The figures for the counties
are divided Into white and negro, the
latter including Chinese, Papanese,
and Indians, but the number of such
are so small that they do not material
ly affects the figures given for negroes.
Similar statements for the other
southern states are being prepared
and will probably be issued in the
The report shows that there are
11,550 people of all colors in Laurens
county. Of these 18.790 are white and
22,75 I are colored.
The population of Charleston, which
total population of the state and of hitherto has not been given out, is
Charleston is distributed into white,
negro, and all other, and the percent

the censuses of I!'lit. 1900, and 1890.
The decennial percentage of increase
placed at 58,833, the whole increase
of something over 3.000 being cred

COTTON CROP IN
Columbia Stale Gathers statistics
Showing Crop to have Dcteriontcd.
In the Sunday edition of the Colum
bia State, the second cotton condi
tion report for this state, as gathered
by the correspondents for that paper,
were published. Reports came from
nearly every county in the State. The
following is how The State sum
marized the situation:
"Reports from all sections of the
State show that there has been with
in the past few weeks, a very serious
deterioration in the cotton crop.
Which the middle of July promised, in
spite of the drought, to produce a
normal yield. The continued drought
followed by unseasonable weather, the
damage done by the storm a week ago
and continued and heavy rains, which
caine at the worst time for the cot
ton planters, have combined to cut
the State's cotton crop very material
ly. The yield will probably be from
25 to 33 per cent, below normal.
Reports of deterioration from near
ly every county and of damage make
it certain that the crop this year will
be very short, and while six weeks ago
a normal yield was indicated, ii is now
hardly possible that In the State more
than a two-thirds crop will be made.
In many sections cotton is opening
rapidly and immediate marketing
seems to be the order. In other sec
tions the rains have prevented pick
ing, and the cotton is rottening In the
bur. In those sections which were
damaged most by the storm the cot
ton crop has been practically ruined.
In only a few counties do the farm
ers now expect to produce anything
like an average yield, and. taking the

reasons why we recommend ZBMO

liquid preparation,?pleasant and
agreeable to use.

cialists as the Btandard remedy for
all skin and scalp troubles.

Mrs. .Mary M. Molcombe died August
LSth, 1911 at her home near I lobby s
Vllle, S. ('.. after a long and painful
ilncss from that nwful and dreaded
Brlghts disease, which resulted in
paraysls on the second day of last
October. For eleven months she was
not able to speak, but maintained her
mental faculties in a romarkabl ? de
gree to the last. She was a daughter
of Dr. Benjamine Wofford, of Spartan
burg and a near relative of the fouud
? of Wofford College. In early life
she graduated from the College' of
Asheville, N. C. Later she married
James Nevil Holcombe of Hobbysvllle,
Mother Holcombe was a woman of
a remarkable strong character; a great
teacher , a faithful wife; kind, devoted
and affectionate mother; amiable
neighbor. Some characteristics of her
noble life deserve special mention: her
simple, childlike and unswerving con
fidence and faith in God was beautiful.
She loved the Bible, made it her daily
companion, practiced its teachings, till
i her light shined brightly and others
seeing her good woiks were constrain
ed to glorify God. She loved all min
isters of the gospel and her home was
opened always with unbounded hospi
tality to receive them. Her devotion
and loyalty to the Methodist church of
which she was a consecrated member
till deatli was most beautiful.
Often in her long conllnement to her
sick bed, she would sing and shout the
praises of God.
She leaves one sister, Mrs. Rev. W.
L, Wait and four children to mourn her
loss. Dr. B. B. Holcombe, of Knoree,

the Bethel Cemetery, Woodruff, S. C.
August 19th, 1911.

Metnodist church Newberry, Sv c. her
former pastor, Rev. W. B. Thayer, pas
tor First Baptist church of Laurens,
and Rev. L. C. Bzell, officiated in tho
funeral. All spoke beautifully of her
noble traits of character.
And I heard n voice from
Heaven .saying, write.
Blessed are the dead which
die in the Lord from hence
Forth, yea sayeth the Spirit ,
That they may rest from
Their labors and their works
do follow them."
We bow humbly and submissively to
the will of our Heavenly Father who
never makes any mistakes.
