Propositions tor new mills are being announced almost daily, and construction is being hurried with Other plants are all possible speed. being greatly enlarged. The greatest, variety of products is being turned out, including not merely yarns and plain cloths, bnt towelings. hosiery and knit 30 ods, while something is also being doue in silk, wool and carpets, development is most notable in North Carolina. South Carolina, Georgia and Alabama, bnt everywhere the industry is prospering. North Carolina alone baa in the neighborhood of 200 mills, with far beyond a million spindles. Most of the mills are making large profits, paying from 85 per cent, down to eight per cent. Although a good deal has been heard about Northern «apttat going Sonth. it is stated that d?ar eighty-five per cent, of the money invested in the two Carolinas in cotton mills Is owned by residents of those States. This is a healthy sign. Much fo the capital which has been accumu lated in the industry stays in the indus The mills are owned by those who operate them, or who live near them and know their value, and who have theii prosperity most closely at heart. The try. As romarkable as the development of the (qdqstry are its great profits. A despatch to the Atlanta Constitution. date4 lut 18th, from Greenville. S. C., annual meetings of the varions cotton mills in this section are about over, ard they show unprecedent ed profits. For instance, the American Spinning Company, capital $128,000; the Huguenot mills. $n:i.(Kio. end others in like proportion Now, while these profits seem large, the pro lit for the current year will be much larger. The V Poe mill, which made $21,000 for twelve months last year, is now mak Jin.« $0000 per month net." No wonder new mills are being built anil old ones enlarged. "Probably the easiest thing in the world," continued j the Constitution's Greenville correspon dent, "to do now in this section is to raise a half million dollars to build a | cotton mill. All of them have paid I good dividends, ann there is all eonfi I deuce in the future, certainly so far ns j this year is concerned. There are other I | evidences of prosperity as well as the | thrift of the cotton mills, • ing institution in this city bus volnn- ] tnnly reduced Its rate of interest from eight to seven per cent. Tiiere are less farm loans than ever before in the hin tine hank ; tory of the country." The above shows the profit of the cotton mills of the Sonth, the very fact that $17,000.000 of new capital has been invested in the last five months in cot ton mills, and 1,100,000 new spindles added to the plants of Southern eotton Spinning, should convince or assure any man the safety and the paying of snch an investment. Home capital should find home investment. For it not only Imilds up yonr country, bnt increases the vaine of yonr other property. A cotten factory established in Green wood, whose thread is spnn and cloth weaved from the staples of the fields that adjoin it, whose labor is furnished by the people of onr city; whose money is keot in onr banks, or spent with our merchants wonld be an enterprise that would reach all and do more to build np a city than anything we know of. Onr country is a cotton country, so give ns a cotton factory. A THE YARN IS JB PER CENT STRONGER. Test st the ONSth# Cottas RsIs la Rsw Baglao« Mills. Mr. Wm. C. Lorering, a leading New England Cotton manufacturer says:— "The Ronndlap bale of the American Cotton Conmany continues to win favor with the manufacturers of New Eng | land, as well as with the spinners of i Europe. You can readily understand j why this should be so, in view of the saving, and of the fact that after mak ing a very thorough investigation in one of my mills last summer 1 found that the average breaking strain of yarn spun from this bale is about 25 per cent, greater than the strength of the yarn spun from the old bale.

The little town, which is only a few years old, has some twenty houses doing business in its limits. Several new stores are ander erection and will be occupied soon as finished.
