K . Greenville Cotton Mills.
Greenville Mountaineer.
Ibe condition of the cotton market In
Greenville has been a source of much perplexity
and annoyance to tbe meichants and
business men, who are dissatisfied with tbe
manner in which the' cotton trade has been
handled, because there is little inducement
for the farmers to market their cotton in this
city. The buyers represent tbe mills In this
vicinity, and there is no competition, In tbe
market, as a price Is fixed each day, and all
* ?mkotanaii oruHa io hniicht of that
COHUU U1 ? ?.
price. Tbe consequence of ibis arrangement
bat been to destroy tbe market, and very
little cotton has been brought bere this seaton.
Twenty or thirty baleB a day Is about
tbe average, and some farmers bave come to
tbe olty with cotton only to turn away and
seek another market. A prominent farmer
who lives not far from Easley brought cotton
here this week, and he hauled it back home,
going to Easley with It. This market has
been from one-fourth to one-balf cent below
Easley, Orler's, Piedmont and Pelzer almost
every day since tbe season was opened,
whloh Is due to the fact that a uniform price
was paid here wblie elsewhere tbe cotton Is
graded, and only tbe highest figures are
quoted where a comparison is made with
Ureenvlll#.
This condition of affairs was calculated to
excite comment and promote action among
tbe business men, wbo naturally do not wish
any retrograde movement In the city, and
tbe meetings beld this week show that they
are In earnest about Instituting a change In
plans and methods, so that the cotton market
will keep pace with otner activities In the
Mountain City, and tbe farmers will be offer
ed Inducements to bring their coUod where
the largest and most extensive stocks ol
goods are to be fouDd In tbia section of tbe
tate. Tbe prime movers In tbls eflort to
chance conditions for tbe batter were careful
and dlsereet in tbelr action, lor there la no
disposition to conflict with the cottton mills,
which are recognized as feeders to the trade ol
this city. But tbe Interests of tbe merchants
demand that the cotton market be revived,
nod tbe farmers shall recognize tbe fact that
Greenville can afford to pay as high prices for
tbelr ootton and otber produce as any other
market in this section, lor tbe merchants
can be satisfied with nothing less. Their aim
la not to Injure any one, but to repair damages
already done to tbe trade of tbe city, and
a united purpose will be fouod to exist which
can overcome the apparent obstacle to tbe
accomplishment of tbelr object.

when our wants In this line were satisfied
with the foreign raised.
Some of our people, aa early In the week as
Tuesday, began to go to AbDevllle that they
might get a lull benefit 01 the Fair held at!
that place, and every day afterwards too, aDd
including Friday, others followed, so that
from first to last, our town and section was
well represented.
Mr. and Mrs. E. H. Turner, of ElbertOD,!
were over for several days last week ut the
home of Mr. C. H. Cllnkscales, father-in-law
of the Urol named.
The comparatively oool weather for the past
few weeks,or something else, has quite noticeably
decreased the sickness which has
prevailed in this section since the beginning
of the year. Our physicians say that they
have never kDOwn a year when they were
more constantly employed than this. Their
rest days have been very few, and although
their time has been so constantly spent in
visiting the sick, yet, the sickness nas In the
main been of light form, but very few deaths
or serious rases.
Prof. Clifford, the blind musician aod ballad
singer, gave a vocal and magic lantern
entertainment at the Kay House Wednesday
night. Home of those who attended were
well (?) pleased. The management offered a
prize of a silver cup to the prettiest young
lady present, and a cake of soap to the laziest

Lowndesvllle. Oct. 28, 19"1.
For cause the above was not sent to the
Press and Banner last Monday. It now goes
forward together with what the writer has
since picked up.
A lew days ago Mr. John H. Bell sold his
mill property to Mr. T. Hutchison. Mr. Bell

Miss Allle May Fennel returned from a several
days stay at Mr. Joe (JUnkscals on Little
River several daysagcf.
Mr. George Wilson, of Warrenton came up
Tuesday for a special purpose which will be
explained further on.
Rev. J. L. Daniel began a protracted meeting
in Smyrna church, yesterday a week ago,
with the 1130 a. m. service, and continued till
Thursday night with two service" a day, one
at 11.30 a. m., and the other at 7.15 p. in. He
was Assisted by Rev. Foster Speer, both of
whom gave to their hearers sermons abounding
in the truths ol thegospol, which doubtless
gave rise to earnest consideration. The
congregations were by no means large; perhaps
this was owing. In part to the busy ?eason.
The first-named received a telegram
kk...dmqo oucnlntf. savinsr that hlsaered moi h
er, who lives In Laurens county was* very ill.
He accordingly left, very early Friday mornlug
lor bis home. He however returned Saturday
and brought the sad Intelligence
that bis loved one had passed away when he
reached there. She was buried that evening
and he came back the next day.
The fall and winter months matrimonial
campaign with us opened Wednesday about
1 p. m., by Dr. J. D. Wilson leading to the Hymenlai
altar altar Miss Ella Sherard. The interesting
e^eni took pUce near Moffatsvllle
in Anderson county, Rev. R. Ligon officiating.
Tbe attendants were Mr. R. H. Moseley
and Miss Vista Sherard, Mr. George Wilson
aud MIbb Lallle Sherard, Mr. Calvin Sher
rard and MlssSallle Wilson. At the close of
the ceremony a splendid dinner vras served;
after which the bridal party boarded the C. &
W. C. train for Mt..Carmei and theD by private
conveyance to the home of Mr. Wm
Wilson, father of the groom, where a recep
Hon was given them. Dr. Wilson has been
for sometime an able and successful practitioner
of medicine in this place, and Is popular
with all of our people. Miss Sherrard is
pretty and accomplished, and has a bostof
friends to congratulate her in her changed
estate. The Doctor and bis bride upon tbelr
return to their future honoe here to day will
be most cordially welcomed.
The tide has begun to flow In this Rectlon,
and as to Just bow many of our marriageable
people will be swept off by It, belore Its ebb
In the spring, none can tell. The waves are
said to be crowding, but not scaring, several
others. More reports In the near future, perhaps.
Several days ago, after a sometime absence,
Miss Jennie Harper returned to her home In
this place.
Mrs. M. E. Latimer and her children left
Friday lor her old home In Klngstree to spend
some time.
Heretofore there has been only a trl-weekly
rural mall delivery route from this place. On
and after the 2ud of December next there will
be a dally mail, which will be of much satisfaction
to the people In the country.
Mr. W. W.Thompson Is most heartily congratulated
in being appointed to the additional

Messrs. B. Boiln Alien, Herbert Brooks,
Will Armstrong and Dr. T. O. KlrkpatricK,

urday on a visit to the family of Mr. E. \V.
Harper.
Miss Carrie Thompson, of Anderson, came
down several days ago and has since been
with the tarnlly of Mr. W. L. Bowman.
Mr. Walter Boyd, of Mt. Carrnel. came up
Saturday and was the guest of Mr. W. L.

Mrs. Richardson of Hartwell cameover several
days ago and Is now at her brother's Mr.

when she will go to Hon. I. H. McCalia's,
to attend the nuptials of Mr. Under, of Hartwell,
and Miss McCalla, daughter of the exSenator,
named above.
From all of the accounts obtainable the late
Fair at Abbeville wus au event In the history
of the old county, which will not soon be forgotten.
When ltlB remembered that that the
time given for preparation for It after It was
decided to have a Fair, was comparatively

quite limited, it Is remarkable that in all of
its appointments it was far beyond expectation.
The management deserves great credit
for the efforts put forth, which made of It bo
complete u success.
I It cannot be denied that upin the part, of
the peop'e aenerally since the matter ot having
a Fair was first mentioned (a silent to a
considerable extent) an undere.ineut'of distrust,
not alone as to the advisability of attempting
in hold a Fair, but more especially
has there beon a doubt as to the ability and
willlngneHS of the people of the county to
takean active interest In It,"as to induce them
to lend their aid In iiccomplishlng tne purposes
of such an underinklng.yet at the time
appointed, through curiosity, perhaps, more
than great expectations, ihere collected at
Abbeville pprhaps ttie largest crowd pver assembled
at that place. They went, they snw.
and were conquered to chaneean old tlmcHxlom.
The exnlblts?(th?-y would have been
much better with more time in prepare tlieui)
?proved that the business interests cf our
county were receiving their merited attention,
and th? other attractions of the Fair
were all that could be desired. At such times,
too, hospitality plays a very lmportpnt part,
for without it such gatherings would lose
much of their popularity. Under this head
all are very grateful for favors bestowed.

Trade goes to Greenwood thatJustly belong*

generally try to draw trade, but Abbeville
gives away trade in ber re/anal to make at
