At a meeting of the stockholders of
th? TTrfirfiftlii Cotton Mills held on
Tuesday resolutions were uuammously
passed to increa-e the capiial stock of
the uiiils to two hundred thousand
dollars. This meeting was called for
this express purpose, and encugh has
baeu actually subscribed to ?~sure that
the additional caoital will be raised.
This means that the Faiifieiu Cottoa
Mills will be doubled. It means that i
it is equivalent to building another j
mill the sataesize as the present mill.
When the mill was firit proposed, it j
was freely predicted that another mill i
would follow it closely or that the j
mill would be doubled, if the present
mill succeeded. The enterprise has
succeeded and the prediction will be
fully realized within a few moinhs.
The additiou to ths mill wiil briug
abont six hundred more people, and
in twelve months ths twelve hundred
people will be living at the cotton
factory. The present mill p<t\s out
about thirty or thirty-five thousand
dollars annually, anil the increase of
capital stock will about doub! * this
amount?that is, abont sixty or
seventy thou3aBd dollars will be paitl
out by the Fairfield Cotton Mills every
year to be distributed among the
people of the commaoity. This will
add a great deal to the business activity
in the town as anyone can see.
But the increase of the capital stock j
meau? still more. It shows that ths
mill nas succeeaea, ana mspireu iuu
confidence of those who have money
to invest. Tb3 increase of the capital
stock and the addition to the mill in j
consequence of it a-e cheering and
stimulating to the community and
everybody will feel more hopeful of
the tature of Winnsboro. The success
of the mill being now a settled
fact, capitalists will not be timid
abont goinjj into still another mill
when the time comes to start another,
and this mill having paid well enough
to warrant an increase in its capacity
another will surely follow.

more southern towns than any other
single industry, and it is strange that
we have been so long in fully realizing
it. From the day that the Fairfield
Cotton Mills started operation, a different
life has been manifested in Winusboro.
Every southern town has found
that it mast first heip itself, and this
experience has been invariably given.
Jill of these things Winnsboro has
now learned, and we believe that the
town is really on the eve of a progress,
never known in the old town.
There Is something about Laurens
that needs the attention of the board of
health. Every premises should be inspected
every other day ana see that
?11 filth is removed, all weeds cut down
and the drains well opened. It is
very necessary that everything be
kept perfectly clean through the summer.
There are some who will not
clean up without an officer of the law
to see it well done.?Laurens County
This applies to Winusboro aiso; in
fact we know of no town in the State
where so little trouble is taken to re
more trash and unsightly odjocis. i[
Winnsboro was not naturally such a
healthy place, we would doubtless
have many cases of fever here every
summer frrm lack of cleaning.
Winnsboro must be worse than Laurens
because the town ha? not even a
board of health. This ought not to
be so. A board of heaith is jast* as
important as a fire department, and it
is ccrtainly no credit to the place that
we have no one to look after the sanitary
welfare of the community. This
is not strictly the doty of the town
council. A separate and distinct body
whose special duty fit should be to
look after snch nutters should be
crea'ed. We fuliy appreciate that it
is uot a pleasant position to be a
member of a board of health, but
man/ of the duties of life sre unpleasant
in their performance, but it
is absolutely necessary that some one
shall do it. It is a poor advertisement
to Winnsboro that at this time when
the town is beginning to put on an
air of renewed life that it has no
board of health?a body recognized as
a necessity in ail civilized municipal- i
ties. We feel almost ashamed to publish
that we have none, but perhaps the

On the morning of July 3rd, our
hearts were leaping with py, our
faces drawn in various lines by lansrhter,
our steps moving with great
rapidity, bounding to and fro until all
was quieted by the rushing car bound
for Ga!7eston. All aboard! ready
wi!h merry laughter again. Just a
short piece we passed a coal mine,
where hands were busy way down
underground working by the little
torch on top of their c*p?. Some earn
as much as five do'iars pfr day. In
that business, like all ?>Uier, experts
and industrious men are the successful
one?. On a few miles further

Instead of cotton factories as you j
have there, the railroads are bordered
with saw mills, and such gigantic ones
I never saw. They are all through
the country; as many as can conveniently
be situated on the railroad?.
I counted fourteen between here and
Houston. Toe sawing capacity averages
fifty thousand feet per ! y; two
of the uumber saw one hun<i ami
fifty thousand feet per day. i i!a>e
this correct from the mills.
The heavy rains show their signs by
great banks of trash rifted in the
svvamp of Angelina river, the first one
crossed. While crossing the great
iron trestle over Neches river~ uiy
heart was leaping, bnt not with joy.
I felt my helpless estate was almost
like the Catholic, ready to cill upoa

of seeing pet deer. They run near

as harmless a3 doves.
Some miles from Houston we passed
a sugar cane field, consisting of one
thousand acres. It was planted in
rows three feet apart, was waist high,
and so'hick .yon could scarcely run
your hand between stalks. When
matured it is cut similar to rails, six to
six and one-half feet long and hauled
ia. The cornfields were the most
wonderful sights in that production I
ever saw. I never saw broadcast
sugar cane thicker there than the corn
was, with three to four ears per stalk.
Of course I saw some that reminded
me so much of that I was accustomed
to. Just after the sun had sunken
benea'h the horizon, and the gleaming
light of the beautiful moon was castin
2 her glistening rajs over the earth
we slacked speed, bat to sail peacefully
and quietly across the San
Jacinto river. Oar arrival at Houston
in time to partake of the viands of
the evening hoar was both pleasing to
taste and sight, within the beautiful
marble walls and flour of a diuing

squares illuminated by four electric
lights in the centre of each square.

Tbu city has erected a magnificent j
monument to Ro&enburg, the hero of
the Texci3 Revolution in 1836. It is
made of Italian marble raised by an
Italian architect, costing tbirty thousand
dollars. On the top stands a
figure sixteen feet high, pointing
north, with extended left hand bearing
a wreath; to the side is buckled a
sword twined with roses. On opposite
sides near the base are two more I
months to fourteen years, some whose
mothers are too poor to care for them;
oihers abandoned, no one to give a
mother's sweet caress save that of (he
foster mother. They are cired for
until fifteen years of nge unless adopte
by some one. They are taught some
way of muk-ng a living. They are
schooled, have religious worship and
everything is inauaged sysema ically.

Mr. Editor, any one would have
enjoyed a hearty laugh with the sailors
at my excited form when I walked
into the shipping depot face to face
wiih five turtles weighing from 142 to
160 pouuds each. They were on their
backs with feet tied together, lying on
trucks ready to be loaded on the Lamp;is/e,
of New York, belonging to the
Marrow line, which sailed two hours
I Ivtfcr Turtle? ftre kftnt alive twelve
days by three baths a day around the
head with salt water, and the Lampasoi
would land, il all favorable, in
eight days. I was anxious to see in it,
but it was being loaded aDd orders to
sailors to allow no one aboard the vessel
on the day of sailiDg. Now sailors
and shipping agents laugh at those
beiog called large turtles. They have
seen them weigh five and six hundred
poundF. A 600 pound turtle was seen
by a number of Timpson ladies and
gentleman in Galveston receutly. I
Hnn't oarp tn lift P.losfi 10 Onf! Of that
fcize. While on the wharf I saw crab
fishing goiog on. They were small,
about the size of a saucer; sold for
thirty ceuts a doziu; equally as ugly
as the green turtle. A lishcrmin had
several hooks sunk with beef on each;
he drew slowly to the surface, using
a dip net in securing the crab.
Tattered and torn by si^ht-seeing we
boarded the cars for Houston. As the
suu was setting we left the island,
crossing the two-mile-wide Bay of
Galve-ton in ten minutes, bidding
farewell to Galres;ou. On the journey
between the cities were seen enormous
pear orchards, strawberjy fields
and l ice fields. There are streaks of
countrv not wholly unlike dear old
South Carolina hills.
I anticipate eight-seeing in thiscnor
mou3 State, and I will in all probability
be then as uow unprepared to
say where I shall always like to reside
Now I trust you have not grown
threadbare iu patience after reading
of how I spent from July 4th to 7th.
