Recently valuable deposits of marble
have been found in Oconee county,
not far from Walhalla. The most
valuable; lied SO for discovered in on
tho place of Mr. T. N. Hall.
Mr. C. H. May new, a practical
marble man, hhj'h that within eight
miles of Walhalla there is one of the
largest marble deposits in tho whole
country, and the specimens taken
from it are susceptible of the highest
polish. About the only thing need,
ful is sufficient capital to establish a
quarry aud begin ',o develop the
rnarblo beds.
We have not a shadow of n doubt
but that the roports from Oconee are
true, and we believe too, that similar
beds exist in Pickens. While wo do
not know just what grade of marble
Pickens county offords, we du know
that the amount of" granite in the
county exoeeds any other county in.
At - a - -
hip otaie, ration oi it is sunceptiblu
of the highest polish, and the development
of this portion of our mineral
resources means much for the future
of our county. Tho eirly development
of these natural resources is'
sure to come.

favorite with carioouUia. His white j

unacquainted with a comb, his
trousers are nearly alwaya too long, '
and he delights in frock, coats sev- 1
eral sizes too large for him. Hugo
boots, faded necktie and cuffs that
are generally on the verge of fringe
are other parte of his unique makeup.
His friends remonstrate with
htm regarding his carelessness, but
M. Pelletan responds calmly, "What
