Newberry courity has a number of
- cotton mills all of which are owned
, by Newberry county capital. These
* mills are running full time and have

or eight months when other like m?m-|
ufacturing industries were hard press-'
ed and running on short time. Prom-j
inent among these mills are the Whit- \
mire interests at Whitmire in the,
northern side of the county. These
mills are owned by the Child family j
here is found a little manufacturing,
city of two thousand people as pros-1
perous as any section of the state, j
At Newberry there are three cotton!
mills, the Newberry mill, operated j
under the management of Z. F.
Wright as president and J. M. Davis
as superintendent; the Mollohon mill, j
pianaged by Geo. W. Summer, president,
E. S. Summer, superintendent,
and an able corps of assistants; the
Oakland mill of which W. H. Hunt is
president and J. N. McCaughrin is
superintendent. All of these mills
are in a prosperous condition. Onj
the first of thip month the usual semi-i
annual dividend was declared. This
year the Whitmire interests, the Newberry
and ;he Mollohon mills declared
a semi-annual dividend of 3 per cent
while the Oakland mills semi-annual
dividend is 4 per cent. In all of these
manufacturing- centers one finds an
interesting class of people all of
whom are contented and happy and
the great majority of whom have been
with the plant for a number of years.!
Good schools are to be found at each'
of these mills and the operatives are
taking advantage of every opportun*

of their children. The managements
of the mills of the county are sparing
no effort to make the mill communities
ideal places in which to live. Especially
is this true when it comes to
such things as playgrounds and parks
and other amusements and recreations.
The Mollohon and Newberry
mills have beautifully laid out parks
with all manner of equipment for the
amusement of the people both young
and old. Both of these mill villages
boast splendid concert bands. j
Banks in Splendid Shape
It is understood that the banks of
the county, .'of which thco are quite
a number, have all recently declared
their semi-annual dividends and that
none have been less than 4 per cent.
Banks are to.be found at Whitmire,
Chappells, Little Mountain, Chapin,
Prosperity and at Newberry. Inter
views with officials of these institutions
show that there is still money
in the county, the savings deposits
being in each, case either larger than
at this time?-last year or but very
little smaller. Every 'bank in Newberry
county, is a live institution
working for the success of the county
as a whole. ,As an illustration of .the
the lively interest the banks take in
the affairs of the county it might ibe
cited that recently the town and
county were ,/both offering bonds to
the amount ,pf around four or five
hundred thousand dollars. When it
seemed almost impossible to sell these
bonds the bankers of Newberry were
called in andj within a few hours arrangements
were made to dispose of
the bonds to the banks as a whole at
a Panose me figure. Si.* far as can
be learned there has not been a failare
in Newberry county since the business
depression came on.
One of the most remarkable business
records of the entire state is
that which has been made by the Farmers'
Oil Mill of Newberry. This I
concern bega,n business twelve years
ago. On the first of this month an
annual dividend of 8 per cent was
deciared and paid to the stockholders.
This brought the amount of dividends
paid the stockholders during the last
twelve years up to a grand total of
141 per cent in cash and 100 per cent
in stock. The ,present capital stock
is $56,000. It is thought that this is
probably the mosl remarkable record

Improvements by City and County
There is now being spent for improvements
in the city of Newberry I
and in the county for roads a total
of nearly $700,000. In the city alone
three hundred thousand is being spent
for municipal improvements. A contracting
company is just finishing
about three mils of asphalt paving
and at a recent citizens' meeting
the issuance of aproximately $125,000
for additional street paving. Ap~

in water works and sewerage exten-'e
sions, while more than $50,000 is be- i>
ing spent for a white way, which will,
be completed within the next sixty j
days. The highway commission l>f '
the county is pushing road construc- t
tion in every section. Contracts'
have been let and much of the main:s
roads of the county practically completed.
Four main roads are under!
construction. From Newberry one of;
these leads south to Richland county'
line, while another leads north to the t
Union county line at Whitmire, these
two forming links in the chain from
Asheville to Charleston on the Pied--^
mont highway. A third road under j
construction leads from Newberry to j
the Laurens line toward Clinton,1^
while the fourth leads from Newberry'
to Chappells on the Greenwood coun-!^
ty line. In addition to these four'^
main roads every road leading from ^
Newberry to the rural sections is be-|r
ing constructed for eight miles out.!
One of the most important of these
is the link in the county to county j
highway, leading to Blair's where'
connection will be made with Fair-1
field county and a bridge constructed j
over Broad river. The county prom- j
ises to have a system of good roads'
second to none in the state. j
Chamber of Commerce '
Newberry has one of the largest j
memberships in Chamber of Commerce
of any town its size in South (
riijrnlina or for that matter in the 12

South. During the early part of^his;*
year a drive was put on which netted j J
four hurftdred members for a period i
of three years with an annual membership
fee of $25. At -the present J
time the directorate is looking for
an experienced secretary who has
been accustomed to putting things over
for other cities and it is under- i

Farmers in Good Shape
No farmers of the state are reallyj
_ i _i i.i u i: 1 i
ti us goou snape as mey wuuiu iiKt; i
o be, but it is a fact that the farm-'
rs of Newberry county are in better
hape than those of almost any other
ounty in the state. In a large part;
if the county, and especially in the!
ection around the town of Prosper-1
ty in the southern part of the coun-j
y. the farmers have abundant sup-i
>lies to run them for the year with>ut
depending on the cotton they are
lolding and are free from debt from
ast year. Newberry county has a
arge farmer population that years
igo learned to live at home and as a
'esult they are not suffering as those
>f other sections. This year they are
urning their attention to other crops
han cotton. A large number of farners
are planting sweet potatoes for
he market and a guarantee of a potao-curing
and storage house of twenty
housand bushels capacity has been
)romised for Newberry by the harvest
;ime. There are a good many farmers
who have already turned their at-1
;ention to dairying and the indica- j
;ions are that a good business in this j
ine win oe duu up aurng me next
few years.
From a business standpoint Newjerry
is on its feet and going ahead.
Her people are optimistic and have
in eye for the future. They are of
m old stock who never "give up the
;hip." but who, when a crisis comes,
ow the harder.

Folks, Mt

pie together for instruction and is
without doubt a most forceful means
of instruction has been demonstrated
recently in Darlington county by
County Health Officer, Dr. C. H. Ver- J
ner and County Agricultural Agent
A. H. Ward, who. completed recently
a most valuable piece of work in exhibiting
instructional films concerning
rural health and agricultural
Fourteen meetings were held which
were attended by over 2.000 people
who saw two or more films shown by
Dr. Verner, one on tuberculosis, one
on typhoid, and one hookworm, and
three nims shown Dy Mr. wara, one
entitled "Oat of the Shadows," showing
the importance of testing cows
for tuberculosis; one entitled "Health
for Hogs;" and one entitled "Putting
Your Uncle to Work," showing the
facilities offered by Uncle Sam for
agricultural and rural improvement.
Still another film shown at several of
the meetings was one entitled "GoodBye
Boll Weevil," exhibited in. cooperation
with the department of
agriculture's I>elta laboratory to give
instruction concerning the poisoning
of the boll weevil by dusting with calcium
"I consider this the very best meth-.
od of teaching such things to farmers,"
says County Agent Ward, "for
in the first place, it is an easy matter
to get a large crowd, and, in the next
place, the people are most impressed
with what they see with their eyes..
As a result of our effort we have had
requests for return engagements, and
e* l. 1. . J 1 ?1
many iarmers nave asxea now mey
could get their cows tested for tuberculosis
as a result of the picture,
"Out of the Shadows." We intend
to show other pictures next fall."
