Tie Progress Matle in South
Carolina Dirilg Ten Years of
Iln(liutstrial Activity.
The revelations of the tenth census
as shown by a bulletin just issued
ought to provo interesting to every
citizen of South. Carolina, for all are
concerned in one way or another in
the development of our manufacturing
and mechanical industries. A valua
ble compilation of these statistics and
summary of comparisons has been
made by the Columbia State, from
which we make the following extracts:
The manufacturing prosperity of the
State in 1000 is shown by-the fact that
while there were 7,930 active estah
lishments with a capital of $70,050,299
there were only 58 idle ones, with a
capital of $115,115.
The eight leading industries of the
State were cotton goods, fertilizers,
flouring and grist mill products, lum- t
her and timber products, planing mill
products, including sash, doors and I
blinds, cotton see(d products, rice clean- -
ing and polishing and naval stores.
These embraced 1,040 establishments 1
or 43 6 per cent. of the total number
in the State; -used a cal)ital of $58,- C
538,373, or 86.9 per cent of the *otal; i
gave employment, to 39,000 wage-cari- ,
ers, or 81.2 per cent. of the total num
ber; and paid $6,965,935 or 73.7 per 1)
cent. of the total wages. The value 0
of their products was $48,041,940 or (
81.8 per cent. of the total. Some de
tail are as follows: P
The number of establishments in- b
creased during the decade 1890-190 C
from 1,100 to 1,040; tbe capital in
creased from $21,771,113 to $58,53, -
373; the average nxuber of wage
earners increased from 15,565 tc.199,
066; the total wages paid increased d
from $3,008,722 to $6,965,935; the
miscellaneous expenses increased from, ti
$1,278,679 to $2,472,203; the cost of
materials used increased from $14,301,
942 to $29,272,774; and the value of
products increased from $21,927,098 9
to $48,041,940. The percentages of
gain (excluding the numbers of estab
lishments) range(d from 93.3 in mis- c
c"'laneous expenses to 168.9. V
During the decade the capital in
vested in the manufacture of cotton 4
goods increased from $11,141,833 to
$39,259,940; the average number ot
wage-earners from 8,071 to 30,201; 3
the wages from $1,510,494 to $5,000,. e
840; the cost of mateials used from. e
$6,819,320 to $17,263,882; and the a
value of products from $9,800,798 to b
$29,723,919. c
The fertilizer industry showed only C
a small increase except in capital, the 0
enlargement here being from $5,920,- d
218 to $10,505,043. The humber of "
wage-earners increased only fro n 1,102 *
to 1,772 and the value of products
from $4,417,658 to T4,882,506.
The ilouring and grist mills showed d
contrary tendency as to capital, the .
ieduction in this direction being over
one-third and the number of wage
earners increasing nearly two-thirds, V
whiln the value of products increased
from $2,083,126 to $2,247,790.
The number and timber products
showed these increases: Number of n
establishments, from 352 to 7209; capital '
from $1,348,155 to $5,187,727; wage- e
earners from 2,590 to 4,585; wages
from $420,588 to $87,899, cost of
materials from $900i,289) to $2,692,805; ti
and value of products from $2,146,750 h)
to $5,207,184. The value of planing c
prodlucts, etc., increased from $711,838 a
to $1,010,328.
The number of cotton seed oil mills (I
increased from 17 to 50; their capital '
frein $505,312 to $1,959,872; their 13
wage-earners from '10I to 734; their
wages paidl from $50,354 to $143,932; I
their cost of materials from $740,605
to $2,302,837; and their value of pro. I
dlucts from $927,772 to $3,103,425.
Tihere was a decrease in the naval
stores industry; in the number of es
tabbishments from 201 to 13'2; ini capi
tal from $005,873 to $268,719; in wagce- a
earners from 2,243 to 880; in wages ]
paid'. from $378,708 to $l:35,575; in
cost of materials from $077,383 to a
$471,2(01, and in value of products j
from $1,5241,100 to $787,056. Appa- ]
rently the naval stores industry is dis5- ]
aiipearing from South Carolina--and i
with it a good many negro " turpeni
tine hands"' who can well be spared. ]
In considering t~hese ligures one can
not hut be impressed by the lack of
dliversification of our ;manufactures.
1)educt cotton goods, fertilizers, lum
ber and cottoni seedi from the list and
there is very little left. Th'le cotton
mills alone empjloyedl in 19100 over
two-thirds of the capital, three-fourths
of the wage-earners and furnished
nearly two-thirds of the prodlucts.
The fIfth table gives etatistics ot the
consolidated mnanufactures of the 12
leading manufacturing cities and
towns: Anderson, lBeauftort,, GJamideni,
Charleston, Chester, Columbia, G.recu

'le8tol seems ai awful thing to put hell in

< Hill 10 man was as bad as a bad woman.
( 811. 11er father was named Loki aind she
otals: had two brothers. One was a serpent
mbiia so big and so long that. it wrapped
Spar- around the world and then swallowed

100,. strong that he broke the strongest
lued: chains just, lke they were cobwehs.
$4,. Then Woden got the mountain spirits
Spar. to nke another chain and they made
$1,. it of six things. The noise made by a
Rock cat walking, the beard of a woman,
,44 ; the roots of stones, the breath of fishes,
3 the smiles of bears and the spittle of
, birds. When the chain was filished
it was as small and smooth and soft as
the a silken string, but no power on earth
total could break it. And so they chained
per him and killed him. But listen what
ucts. kind of a hoine Miss 1ela had. Hin
h1 1. ger was her dining table. Starvation
and was her knife. Delay was her man i
au. servant-Sloth her maid servant. A

pop This is just a sample of their mythol- u
t of ogy. It fills up several ho< ks. Now,
lifth where in the world did that people get j
pop- all these wonaerful stories. A way
t of back in the ages they must have had i
the poets more imiaginative than llomer. d
total Soie of our most learned men say t
ent. they got the foundation of many of e
11 is them from the Bible. For the story f
L. of goes that away back in the ages theti
1 1.7 people got so bad that .1upiter got ''
lew- dreadful mad with them and resolveud
per to destroy them. So lie summonel all a
fur- the gods to conie to him, and they t1
lets. came from all parts of the heavens, it
1 .3 traveling on the milky way, which is e
and the street of the gods, and after taking 1
pro- counsel together they deternmiied to t
destroy all niankind and start with a it
)uni- new pair. So Jupiter was about to s,
coi- launch a red hot thunderbolt at the t<
cer- earth and burn it up, but, one of thie
ston gods told him that lie had better not, e
with for lie might burn up heaven, too. So
Aur- lie concluded to use water instead oif
.s is fire, and then came the flood whichi
178 drowned every huiman being except,
in. Deucalion and his wife, who were good
lets. people. They escaped to the top of a
with mountain called, P3arnasus and were
$1 ,- saved.
1I-y That is very much like the Bible I
rsi- story of the flood and of Noah and
32 Mount Ararat. And just so they got I
167 Hercules from Samson and Vulcan and
pital Apollo froni Jubal and Jubal Cain,
has and the IDragon fromi the serpent that t
'74 temptel Eve, and tihe giants who tiled
ork to scale the waill s of heaven from Nim- s
Mith rod and his tower. Every great,
pro- heathen god had a favorite son just as f
ish- our Christian God has a Son. There I
u4al is something sublinie anti comfortng .
in vcin cieVivg or imagining that a a
vith 'reat and good being is somewhere in I
po- the heavens overruling the earth and I
ish- its people, prospering the good and(l
$1 punishing the evil. The fact, liat this V
tI0 all powerful being is invisible makes c
it- His existenco the more impressive. C
icts' Jupiter sat enthroned on Mount Oly1- t
witli pus, Woden had a beautiful palace of a
pro- gold and silver at Volliilla and it could t
ish- only be reached by walking oii a rain- t
and bow. And we pray to our God, say
. I in: ": Oh.l Thou who dwellest in the
ptal heavens,'' and not in the temiples iade t
has witlh hands.
Ilis tory gives no account of any peo
,ll5ple who did not put their trust, ini some
S God, andl this proves our confession of I
wit wenknmess and our needl of sitrength from
p some sup hernatural divimitvy. Th'le more
nscultured an:l cnlightened we become the I
., more conscious we are of our weakness.

How the Farners Can Save Money
1o the l':ditor of The People's Journal:
f The following communication issued
by the Assistant Agriculturist of Clem
son Agricultural college is of so much
value to the farmers of this State on ac
count of the present high price of all
feed products for farm animals and
stock, that I have determined to get you
to publish this as an advertisement for
which our company will bear the ex
- peIse.
As some of the products made up in
the rationi as made by Mr. Connor may
not be available to various planters I
suggest that any planter write to Mr.
Connor and state what food products
are available to him, both rough forage
and concentrated food, and Mr. Connor
will take pleasuic in making up a ration
to suit his needs as he has done in this
Yours truly,

Cheap Rations for Horses and
'o te Iditor of Tihe People's Journal:
Farmers from various sections of the
State have been writing asking about
the advisability of feeding horses and
timules on cotton seed meal and hulls and
also asking for a cheaper ration than
The following prices are given In a
letter from Scranton, 8. C. : Corn, $40
per ton; oats, $45 per ton: wheat bran,
$25 per ton; cotton seed mial, $26 per
ton; rice imeal, $22 per ton. Of course
corn and oats are out of the qucstion as
a food for horses and mules at the above
prices, so something cheaper must be
looked for.
The analysis shows that rice meal has
about the samo composition as corn meal
and we have found that it is just ae good
for feeding pigs. We have fed it to
lhorses with good results. I think we
are safe in sa ing that it may be used in
place of corn pound for pound.
If no hay or fodder is used in the
ration and hulls are resorted to as rough
ness some nitrogenous food such as bran
or cotton seed meal must be used to
sIupply protein. Ilulls may be fed with
out any further fear of injury to the ani
imal Should they refuse to eat the hulls
a little corn meal or brim sprinkled over
the surface will tempt them.
A good clicap ration may be made up
as follows:
Six pounds of rice costing i.0 cents;
four pounds of wheat bran costing 6.0
cents; two poundA of cotton seed meal,
costing 2 5 cents ; ten pounds of cotton
seed hulls, costing :1.0 cents ; total cost
of ration per day 17.1.
The above is for a horse or mule of
1,000 pounds in live weight.
It is evident that a ration made up of
cora and fodder and containing the sanie
amount of digestible matter as the abovo
ration would cost much inore than the
The North Carolina experiment station
halls fed cottonl med mea and hulls to
e horses with good reBults, ut the experi
ec ments along this line have not been ex
o- tensive enough to say that cotton seed
a meal can be fed in unlinited quantities
for any length of time without injury to
the animal.
-Numbers of farmers, however, have
reported that they haive fed cotton seed
meal to mulmes and horses with good
