WARE SHOALS PR
From Wilderness Well (
Up and Busy Manufc
Where Water On
That valuable water powers going
to waste on Saluda Iltiver at Ware
Shoals could be utilized for .a large
manufacturing establishment was pre
dicted thirty-eight years ago by W. S.
Knight, In an article he sent to loie
and Farm, a publication of Louisville,
Ity. The clipping has been recently
unearthed by .ins. F. Mac10nroe, assist
ant treasurer of the Ware Shoals Man
utfacturing Company, who sent a copy
to The Advertiser several days ago
and pointed out that the prophecy had
been fully realized. Mr. Knight still
lives, said Mr. Maclinroe, and has
seen the wilderness grown to he an
ideal mill town with paved streets and
all modern conveniences.
The following is the contribution
avbicli Mr. Knight sent to the Louis
ville paper In 1881. Development of
this thriving manufacturing village
was Initiated by Senator N. 13. Dial
and was continued by the present
management under the direction of Nir.
B. D. Riegal, of New York, and asso
clates. The plant is now one of the
most up-to-date to be found in the
The Ware Shonki.
I have traveled over a good portion
of the country very recently, and find
that the crois are shorter than they
hatve beenl since the war between the
States. According to what I have seen
and heard of the general crops of this
county, there can not possibly be over
0110-fourth of a crop. We had no rain
from the 17th of March up to the 1st
of July that Would stop anyono from
twork ont his farm. All kinds of crops
'have been a failure this year. Wheat,
oats, potatoes, all kinds -of fruits and
cotton have been cut 'off from one
half to three-quarters; but ouir bot
ton tanas are neavy iadeti witii inae
corn, where they were planted in due
time and well worked. The cotton
cro) will not, pay off the guano and
uirovislon bills that have been con
tracted oil this crop. These are the
Conditions of the people of this and
many other counties of this State.
Laurens cotily is situated very near
the northwestern jpart of the State,
bordering on 1Salida river oil her west,
whlch affords a vast amount of very
valuable water imower that has neve r
ibee u11tilized. The most tl aable falls
on the river ate the Iamois Ware
Shoals. These shoals are abIlout tlhree
11iiles long. witi sutliielit fa-Il to run
a largo factory at any point on the
shoal.A, and there is only two 01r thbroe
little on1e horse grist bill oin it. There
is a siledid ( opening for %ery large
capital ill thcse shoals. 'The nearest
railroad, the C. & G. railroad, is about
eight mles from here.
The coutntry is as healthy as any in
the United States. No malaria or
chills, with good water, good society
and a genetouts hearted pleopile, who
swelcome all honest lpersonls thlat tmay

more especially those with plenty of
capital to improve ou* water power.
The land of this county will compare
favorably with any In the State. We
'generally make as nutch as we can
gather any seasonable year, and we
are not any more liable to diiths
than any other county or State.
Land can be bought at from $5 to
$10 per acre with improvements, but
not a great deal to sell, from the fact
that no one here wishes to leave for
any better country.
I think those that (1o not take "Ilome
and Farm" would succeed much bet
ter it they would subscribe for it. I
would like Mr. S. J. Matthews to give
a list and description of all the grapes
that can be successfully grown in
the cotten belt, as I wish to set out a
vineyard. And I would like for Bar
ney LIllard to continue to write, as
his letters are of much interest to the
farmers of the cotton States.

THEl GUARANTEED "All? TONIC
I wish to announce that I have taken the Laurens County
Agency for the Owen Light and Power Plant.
R. M. Owen, the man who brought out the famous Reo and
the wonderful Owen Magnetic Automobiles, now fathers the
Owen light and Power Plant. He knows each system intimately.
He appreciates each advantage, each limitation. No man is more
able to judge.
And it was because Mr. Owen believed that an improved unit
could be built--more satisfactory than those heretofore offered
that led him to study and work out a better way.
Here, indeed was a fertile field for an imagination and aknowl
edge like his.
It meant new ambitions, new successes.
All over the country he is noted when automobiles are men
tioned. First with the Reo. Then with his own named car.
An Owen Plant gives three times as much light as lamps for
the same amount of fuel.
And The Owen Plant reduces household drudgery.
It takes its place during this shortage of man-power.
No man now can conscientious withhold this great Owen
Plant from his family.
Even from a selfish standpoint, tepdrn farming demands the
propei- lighting of buildings and yards, and labor-saving power.
And light such as this means everything to the women-folks
and children. Merely press the button on the wall and the magic
of electricity brings to you and yours new joys, new conveniences.
An electric light and power plant that starts and stops iiself.
In no other plant can you obtain the Owen advantage.
