RETROSPECT OF 1890.
Prosperity from a, Business Point to

With this issue of the Stand
ard we closo the year's work.
Thoughts come crowding into
the mind, filling it too full for
utteranco in words, and they at6
altogether too varied for tie
scope of a single newspaper ar
ticle. ; '
We would not magnify busi-
ness above every consideration,
iu aiQ or prq-
gressiveness in all that engages
the zeal of mankind.
We hope no item of material
importance to the town has been '
overlooked bv tho ft inn rlarrl
during the year. A summary,
however, of them just now, we
think, will give much pleasure
to our readers.
The growth of tho town for
j the year 1899 has been truly pho-
Mill No. 5 at Forest Hill has
been built and its 520 looms are
running with miffht.
The cotton scoc. Gi miix is com
plete and will begin operations
in .January. The gin went into
operation early in the season
and did well.
At Cannon ville the new three
story factory is enclosed and will
soon bo ready ior ifs equipment
which together with tenement
houses necessary for it (and al
ready built) will represent; a
plant of $150,000.
Eightv new houses wero enu-
merated to us Friday evening as
built during the year by two of
our contractors. Allowing, that
there were from twenty to 'jthirty
built, by other vpartiesat, ould
foot upwards' of 100 dwelling
houses during the year. Among
these are some of our most ele
gant homes, ornaments to do
credit to any town; c y
It isvsafe to say that, tbere
have been forty houses remocl-
eled, repaired or renovated at
considerable expense and result
ing m enhancement of value and
Among our building improve .
ments are a mayor's court room
and private office and an-,, office
for the chief of police (and, by
the way, we have a uniformed
po'ice force). t
There has been nearly 1900
square yards of new macadam
out on North Main street and j
about 2,-000 squa o y-i's of, old

Xlce Box Sent b the Children.
Last week a white man from
Fort MiK. S, C, was arrested
for being drunk. He was unable
t91payLttnefine and costs and
was sent to. jail. His wife heard
that he wasjeonfined in jail and
sent the money to pay him out.
Qn ' Wednesday night he was sent
home and on Friday a letter was
received from the lady. She
spoke, of how sad it was on
Christmas morning to see the
five children gaze upon their
empty stockings and to be de
prived of the Christmas rierri
ment. It was -a sad letter and it
touched the hearts of the mayor
and the policemen and they
prepai ed a nice box, containing
fruits, candies, etc., and sent it
to the lady accompanied, by a
very nice letter from the per - e
Mayor Means. The children
will after all enjoy some of the
pleasures of the . ; ca m given
