Mart t,6f the ' Emsley PQgress, writ s:t At this perl6d of the year merchants and business men are taking inventory to see if their business has been a success or a failre. In this article we wish to take an inventory of Easley a for a period of forty years. . "Christmas, 1873, the writer 0 arrived at a stopping ph ce on P this railroad called Easley. It " consisted of one slab depot, one e framed sf^wng9m, looking some- t thing, gommissarat of a raIroa uction camp, a b few old uses and a brush arbor, t 't of the Methodist h mping ground. A town had (ten surveyed and streets mark- s b> out, but they were still cov- c t d with broomsedge, chinqui ..11 bushes and old field pines In January, 1874, a charter for a town half a mile square, with the depot as a center, was ob tained from the legislature, then n in session. The town immedi- P ately began to grow, Houses e were built and families from the surrounding country moved in. Among the .first were: R. E. Holcoibe, T. W. Russell, W. A. Maul dn, Dr. R. J. Gilliland, Sr., J. R. Glazener, W. A. Clvde, 0. H. C. Smith; P. D. Oureton, 0. C. Folger, Allen Mauldin, W. 1. I Smith. Capt. J. N. Broom, Win. Slaten, Govy G. Smith, H. A. Ritchev, Mrs. Nancy Ballentine, with their familie3, and also A. d O. S. Bolt, then ut i st election, held in I n nider the newv char .Mcombe was elected c nourn.m T. W. Russell, 0. H1-. 9 6L, J. 3. Folwrr anid Wm.1 Slaten were elected councilmen. W. H. Johinson was appone town marshal. The1 poletof the town were hampered by thet effects of the late war; the hor rors of reconstruction time, and the panic of 1873. For~ a num-t ber' of years all business wvas un profitable and men went from one occupation to another. "The first school, held in the ' Methodis't church buildinin 1875, was taaight by Prof.W.. Morrison, nowv of Clemson Col- 'Y lege. The next year Prof. Geo, E. Prince, nowv judge of the Tenth judicial circuit, taught in a new building adjoining the S Methodist church grounds, A 4 small privrate school was taught -about 1878 by Miss Jennie Mc- f< Bride.p "The census of 1890 gave Eas- ra ley less than 500 inhabitants, a The first incorporated industry d Strong and Dur * Give steady, Easy to ligh~ clean and re' smoke.

For sale by all dealers kdv. vas the Easley oil mill, built bout 1893. It was at first un rofitable, because none of the roducts, except the'oil, could be old to any advantage. The ulls were burned as f'uel for the ngine, the linters were left in ie yard to rot, the meal was paringly purchased as fertilizer y the farmers in the surround ig country. Someof the stock olders became discouraged and >ld out for less than 10 per mnt. In a few years the mill aid 20 and 40 per cent. diyi end. "Soon after this the Easley ank was established. This semed to be a nucleus for a ew order. Business began to rosper-new enterprises were agaged in. The Easley cotton ills, built in 1896, with Mr. ohn M. Geer as president, was accessful from the first. "We could fill pages with the arlous vicissitudes of fortune rhich enterprises of the city ave passed through--but the bject of this article is to give ur present assets.
