an~ unwvorthy member a boost
wvho is neither worthy or comn
petent, elevating them to place
of Importance and trust, whic1
they can not fill with credit to
the Unin, at the same time
ignoring men who are compe
tent and would fill the. ,ositions
to their own and th& til)i's
credit. Such things often do
stroys confidence .of the outside
world in the Union.
Another trouble: there are a
few members - who naturally
seem to think they were especi
ally born to rule; and where
there are such, woe unto him
who would dare for a moment
to raise his voice against one of
these anointed ones. They will
at once don their gaffs, prepare
their gags and no quarter Is
given-nothing short of a fight
to the finish will suffice.
Such things ought not to be
so, and the sooner all are made
to know this, the better for the
Union and all connected with it.
Of course there are none of them
here, but we have all heard of
Hold Cotton For the Minimum.
Cotton has advanced $7.50 per
hale in ten days and if we will
hold to it, and not be influenced
to sell, it will in the next ten
days make the same advance
and the minimum will be
reached. Remember the 1907
crop is 4,500,000 bales short.
This makes cotton scarce, not
enough for consumption. Crop
cond1iitions the lowest in twenty

On May 10th, our National
President, C. S. Barrett, issued
a circular letter asking the
Union men to plow up tn per
cent. of the cotton planted and
put. it in food crops. One million i
acres has been reported plowed
up. This looks as if the boys
mean business and will stand
behilnd their guns.
Do not listen to those who tell
you to sell, it is going lower,
when they know it will go up
ward by June.
Do not forget that corn is $1.10
per Lushel and plenty of time to
plant yet, Well filled corn-cribs
and smoke-houses will always

Both the European and Ameri
