* SILK INDUSTRY FOR SOUTH *
* CAROLINA *
* By Nash Philpot *
S* * * * .* * * * * * * * :1
'Laivonian, N. Y.1
August 29, 1921.
Wl"ditor The Advertiser:
I at a Laurens 'boy and of course
I ant always interested lit Laurens
and in South Carolina. Now, I have
rutin up on a brand new industry in
this country. and I have wondered
wihy South Carolina cannot do what
the state of New York is doing. In
the mon(th (f Alarch past, a number of
wide-a'wake business men organized
acomlpalny and incorporated. This
cotllpatty was orgatnized under the
parent silk company of New Orleans
for ahei prolotioln and spreai of the
silk industry in New York Oate. Of
court ts there will be some people who
will he ready to crv fake, fake: but I
have seen this New York comI panty
and what they ate doinig, at1d I can
see Ito possible Chance for failiu.e.
From earliest colonial timIets diffetrent
parties inl different parts of this counCO
try have entdeavored to raise silk.
llowever, ott account of the slow
growth of tte Iiilber trt'ee and the
small size of the leaf, togetler with
the high price of labor las compared
with the cllea labor of ,JapanI tle
tttelllts 'o ovdiuet silk in this vcouttn
try so far, have fail.d. I want to tell
you about another effort, in which not
the old mu lberry tret' and the old silk
worm are used. but oile inl which a
new tree and it sulhper-worim is being
ised. Three years ago a scieitist inl
New Orleais produced a tree- -a
vt'oss between the itmulberry and the
osage orange- rOhicit suiripasses the
old mulberry tree inl every way. The
tiew tree grows iucl faster. its leaves
are tiuch larpaer, ind froit them I the
leavesi the silk wornts produce iiuch
iore and it ticr silk. Now there has
also been iro(uced a tpu per-worm
which spins a super-cocoon, which i
twice or tlree tilltev. tle size of tle
ordinary cocoonts. Tile old rOcois
cotntain only ahLlut seveni hiininited and
fifty yards of raw silk, while hc nex
on, coltaints anyvwhere froll a hous
and to eighten iunired yards of raw
silk. Three year _ ao a pareit sil'
(0o ty was organized at New O
leants to take ihis new Ire and
slper-wolIm' and sread them over the.
whol, ecunltr. throIv !-tato compllan
