There were quite a number of
young folks in the Armory Mall
Tuesday evenig to enjoy the fourth
of the. series of dances to be given
during the summer by the Summer
I? uicing Club. Dancing continued
from nine to after twelve
The music was furnished by the
Sumter orchestra and was moat en
Joyalde as dance music. The recent
rains had cooled the atmosphere and
the hall was therefore not a3 warm as
it has been at other danced which
I have already been given .
Activity Throughout the South.
Manufacturers' Record.
Indicative of the spirit of develop?
ment throughout the South are two
letters from South Carolina, reaching
the Manufacturer s Kecord at about
the same hour. One is from Sumter, S.
On and in this Mr. A. V. Snell, Secy,
of the Chamber of Commerce, writes:
"Sumter is going ahead by leaps
and bounds, and 1 believe that any
impartial Investigator would bear
me out when 1 say that no city of the
old South for Its size is doing more
than sumter right now. It is having
a building boom. Two new hotels are
under way. one costing $100,000 and
one $50,000; two onice and bank
buildings, one to be seven stories, are
under construction, as are two new
churches, one to cost $40,000, and a
$75,000 gas plant Is being ins; tiled.
The S. W. R. R. Co., reported to be a
branch of the Seaboard, is being
graded Into Sumter from McP.ee.
where it connects with the Seaboard,
and from which point north but a
few miles will connect with Monroe
thence via Charlotte to IWstlc and
the Clinchfleld. From Sumter It is
Oeftatn to go routh to Charleston.
Glan? e at a map. and the impor?
tance of this extension is easily seen.
In Sumter on every hand smaller
buildings * nd dwellings are going up.
Seventeen stores are in course of con?
struction. The Southern Express Co.
is to have a new home. Recently a
new wholesale tlry-goods house has
been established with local capital.
This has been followed in the last few
days by *he Witherspoon Rros. Shoe
Manufacturing Co., with $35,000 cap?
ital."

taking place around that city. Mr.
James .Allan of the Allan Jewelry Co..
wholesale jewelers, writes :
"There Is great development Just
now taking place In Charleston in
suburban property, and there will be
a demand for mechanics of all sorts
and building contractors. one hun?
dred and twenty-five lots have recent?
ly l?e?n sold In the Hampton Park
Terrace. Just opened up. and as soon
as the sewage and water pipes have
been completed houses will be built.
I have been elected president of two
other development companies which
own some large tracts of land In the
same section of Charleston, the Park
View Co. and the Riverside Park
Co.. and also a large tract, of land
outside of the city known as the
Manor Company. All of this property
win i.peneel an for development)
"Charleston is very much congest?

The spirit of homc*bulldlng ac?
tivity and the opening up of ?utbur
ban property around Charleston, the
general building activity of all kinds
in Sura tor, are but types of that wide
development Of every kind Which is
seen In every part of the South. One
of the most striking phases of South?
ern advancement is that activity ll
not confined to s few towns or titles,
but Ii about universal in the broad
region that stretches from the Po?
tomac to the Rio Grande. Itt this
widespread activity, covering every
