NOT ENOUGH FOR WORLD'S
The following is taken from a let
ter by The State and written by a
farmer in Barnwell county.
"The poor farmer is about to throw
up his hands and quit now. They
began this year with a brave heart,
they planted spinach, cabbage, onions,
corn and melons of all kinds and, last
but not by any means least, cucum
bers. Not one dollar of profit have
they gotten and in many and most
every case, their fertilizers are a total
loss, saying nothing of hire of labor
and land rent. Then right on the
back of all this some perfectly inex
perienced person comes along and
makes a statement that we are to
make a twelve million bale cotton
crop. Now it is wrong to make such
statements for it is impossible. Would
it were true. I have traveled all of
this afternoon, walked over hot fields
and not cnly today, but many, as the
rain would let me, and will try to be
just to the world. There will not be
more than a two bale average to the
plow over this state, In many cases
it will take from ten to 20 acres to
make a bale without the weevils.
Many fields are beautiful, the cotton
looks like trees. In olden days you
could have well counted on one, two
or three bales per acre. Now let us
see. You could just as well take a
garden rake as any other way, for
the fanl eforms are so thick on the
I ground it is sickening to one that owns
a farm to see it. Think of the disap
pointments, think again of the tale
of woe. What is to be the end of al
of this ? I don't write well enough
to publish this but you tell them what
I say, for every word is true. I would
tell nothing else."
Our friend need not apologize for
the manner of writing-the picture is
so well drawn that it is convincing of
a sad condition and one wishes that
there might be doubt of its accuracy.
The State has, of course, offered
no prediction of the size of the cot
ton crop but it is impossible to pre
vent publication of estimates, from
the government and other sources of
information. One prefers to dwell
on another side of the picture. Not
even an American crop of 12, 000, 000
bales will suffice. next year for the
needs of the world-that, at least is
the expressed opinion of some of the
leading authorities. We may infer
hopefully that no great danger, in any
'case, of a serious drop in prices is to
be forecast and it may be that prices
will be higher. The State is careful
not to prophesy about cotton prices,
it reposes small faith in the cotton
prophets, but there are data from
which an estimate of the world's con
sumtion for twelve months may be.
accepted as more than a guess.
Hence, encouragement is abundant
for the farmer not to give up his
fight against the weevils, not to re
lax his energies, and to go on with
viligence and diligence in the effort
to produce and harvest every ounce
