Greenwood and Laurens are ahou?
in the same boat: Greenwood raised
$30,000 to secure a boy's school ami
failed to get i'. while Laurens raised

for both institutions if they had ac

Several newspapers of cities in
South Carolina have recently been
"heralding the fact in flaring headlines
that a large ice manufacturing cor
poration had bought the plants In their
respective cities as if it were a sign
of progress and growth. Several
years hence those same papers will
probably be complaining of a corner
on ice in South Carolina.

' It is to he hoped that this year will
see n decrease in the acreage of the
cotton crop in this county. The high
price of the staple this past season is
bound to cause an immense crop the
corning season. The cotton crop in
the larger portion of the south was
very large this year and the price was
Kood, so it is not to be expected that
those who were satisfied with their"
profits will think much about reduc
ing for the coming crop.

It appears as if over-eager lawyers,
a few gosslpers and flash-light news
paper correspondents are weilding too
much Influence in the conduct of the
Tillman "spectacle". While we hold
no brief for young Hen Tillman,
though It doea appear that he Is doing
belter, yet It appears as if at every
opportunity and sometimes without
the opportunity, advantage Is taken
to show him up in a bad light. If
what Mr. H. C. Tillman says is true,
and we do not doubt it. there was a
direct attempt to misrepresent the at
titude of young Til man's children to
ward their father when they were sent
to his home for the holidays. It seems
as if Mrs. Tillman would do better to
;ake a little counsel to herself.
