It seems as if a real estate deal of
magnitude is to he consummated
soon. P. B. Odell is considering the
sale of his house and farm here to a
real estate man from North Carolina,
taking as part payment 600 acres of
land at Myrtle Beach. Mr. Odell will
continue to reside here conducting a
garage and other business. It's said
on the street that the prospective
purchaser is a capitalist and will
build another cotton mill here.
The cotton pic-king: m this community
is about over, and only 350
bales have been ginned. The average
amount prepared for market here is
2,000 bales. I believe there's only
one other gin this year in this township,
that of W. C. Scoit. So far he
has turned out only 50 bales. These
figures show an appalling shortage of
the "Southern snow." What are we
going to do about it? Echo answers,
"What?" The situation is certainly
seiious. " Tis true, 'tis pity; 'tis pity
'tis true.'
