Perhaps if ball games were 12 or 14 innings long, instead of nine, MtCroghan would have won, It was agreed in the 6th innng tc play just 7 innings, but when the 7th .irri\cd Ruby was far in the lead, Then Mt. Croghun, seeming to have n chance of winning if the full nine unings were played, tried to continue the game, but agreements are agreements and the game stopped.

So quietly has this preparation prog- u] ressed that comparatively few people jn in the county know that the neat two suory mciory building on Market jyj Street, Cheraw, through the lurge win- m (lows of which may be seen many strange looking machines, whirling this way and that, is today fully sj, equipped to turn out each week over t>J 10,000 suits of the finest underwear. >r. And these garments are finished 0| packed and labeled, ready to be tai.en from the box and put on. The yarn j?. is furnished on spools by the Cheraw Cotton Mills, a few blocks away, and jsj from the tint ; the hber is picki d on the plantation until the garment is neutly folded in the box hearing the |)( attractive lithographed label, it has never journeyed beyond th ?.on id.iies of Chesterfield County. The factory is *in running order, turning out goods, salesmen are on pi the road taking orders and the only < < reason that the machines are not being ( ( taxed to their full capacity is that time is required in procuring the large ' 1 number of high class operatives needed. Agents from Cheraw are no?v| la in the manufacturing centers of East) Tennessee, North Carolina and away ii off in New England securing the ex- w perts necessary to conduct the cotton , 11 op its journey through the different, (' departments of the factory from yarn j c< to underwear. 01 After passing through the offices; m on the first floor the visitor is shown ' g< the knitting machines. These ma-1 w chines, of which there are many, are' whirring and whirling like lightening, . F' sucking yarn from a dozen spools at j the top and sending out through the j bottom reels of knitted, silky under- ; uij wear bodies. In various sizes these machines produce the different I ^ weights and textures of material. : ' Mingled with them are the smaller '',l and seemingly busier mechanical knitters that construct the sleeves, wrist and ankle bands. On this floor are Wl also washing machines, bleaching machines, drying Cats and fleece-lining r< devices. i llJ On the linner Hoop the hemmirwr iu I" (lone, button holes are made, buttons' are put on; in fact the garment is fin-! ished. The perfection of the machinery is marvelous. One machine will pick up a button and sew it on a garment while another part of it cuts and |( works the button hole, so quickly? that the eye can scarcely follow the operation, the only use of the human ( lingers being to feed the buttons and guide the instrument in the location | and number of buttonholes. ^ j Other queer looking devices sew j with eight needles and loopers at !b< same time, not only knitting in neck ^ bands and stitching strong as well as 1 ornamental borders around the garment, but trimming away the edges b) it the same time. , One big outstanding feature is the lightness, the ,clcnness, convenience and comfort of the entire establish mont. The ventilation is perfect. The employees, men and v.omefi are ail highly paid, experienced and skilled white lubor. One hundred and fifty dozen union suits or .'500 dozen single garments will be the daily output. The name of the brand that has been | |miv"nn ami i I'^isicrcii is wie I ee . Pec and the salesmen who have been raveling throughout the country with |f a full line of samples report a most nthdsiastic reception, by the best cIush of retailers and judging by their sales slips the Cheruw Knitting Mills ^ will be compelled to run to its full capacity und perhaps work overtime from its very infancy. This product is one of the agents through which Choruw and Chester- j? field County will advertise their name | t iroughout the Union, in fact through- c out the civilized v.orld, for Pec Dec y Underwear is truly a product of civil y i/.ntion. } Mr. A. l.cUoy Rethea, a prominent t| citizen of Dillon, was thrown from i? his buggy last Saturday afternoon 2 miles from that town, when a passing automobile slruek his vehicle. w He was taken to a hospitale, where he < died Sunday.
