States under the direction of Dr.
S. A. Knapp, of Lake Charles,

weevil into Texas was the direct
cause of the department taking
Ip the work. Later the nation
a I board of education took note
4of the work and made a consid

The educati onal board appro

These demistrfation patches
iave created a very considerable
interest in Floyd county, and
the Farmers' Union at its county I
meeting the other day passed
resolutions asking Special Agent
Davis to extend the work to all
dist ri( ts of the ectunty.
.1t is a colplielllt to Floyd
county and to Mr. Davis that he
was the first man in Georgia to
write a letter to Dr. Knapp ask

Georgii. Mr. Davis tried to get
some of the prominent men in

of district representative was

(auxt of his faith in the ulti

ini 'i months this faith has
bein a dly rewarded by the ex

intereCst of farmiers, business

throughout the state.
Mr. E. Gentry, who has been

is the state agent, and from all
sections of the state both Gentry
and Davis are receiving letters
and resolutions c alling for them
to enter ne~w territory.

Cotton Bagging for Baling.
Them F'armetrs Union of Miss
Isl~ppi is 'making comnmendlable
efforts to carry out the plan of
Slbstitulting cotton for jute bag
ging on cotton bales and the of
ficers of the union are very con
fident that their plans will be
carried out successfully. With
the end in v1am of ,--mmn~i.
the supl)ply of cheal) cotton 01
the market the Mississippi unior
officials have contracted for 14,
000,000 yards of cottoni bagging
from the factories, which they
estimate will cover 2,000,OX) 01
cottoii. Of course the farmern
rf the entire state of Misissipp
do not produce this amount an
must look for assistance in thi:
movement from the unions il
L)tlier states and thA respons<
should be prompt.
This is a big job to undertake
and whether the Mississippi or
ganization disposes of all thi:
bagging in one season or not, it
is a step in the right direction
an( one of the great co-olerativE
movements of the farmers unioi
which marks the activity am
strength of the organization.
There is not the slightest doubi
that cotton bagging is he tter foi
bales than jute, and the plan t(
substitute cotton for jute servev
two purposes, for it utilizes th<
cheaper grades of cotton and
furnishes a better grade of bag
ging, which will enable the cot
toll growers to get a better prie
for their cotton at home and
Ill ('onnfection with this move.
ment the Mississippi Farmers
Union is also engaged in a cam
paign of education for the utili
zation of the cheaper grades of
cotton in the manufacture of
bags of various kinds. For in
stanc(e, of late years the flou
manufacturers are shipping
more flour in sacks than in bar
rels, and this causes a greate
demand for the cheap cotton to
make bags. The Mississipi
campaign is for the further pm
pose of promoting the manufat
ture of cotton bags for use i
handling many kinds of pr<
ducts which are now handled i
boxes or barrels.
All the differeit state organ
zations of the Farmers' Unio
sholId join ihands in this cam
paign and thereby aid ini dispor
ing of the surpilus oIf che:p) co
ton and enale the farner t
get a higher price for his hig
grade cotton. -Farmers Unio
Mr. Editor: In the Senltinle
Journal of last week was a cowr
munimcation signed R~ob Roy'i:
wvhich he said that in the las
report of the Supervis .r he m

dirawn $6~ for work at the pon
farm, and he asks the riuestioii
"'Why is it he is paid1 for (ounit'

I am responsible for the clain
appearing in the name of D. . F
Roper, to save putting four litti
claims on the book for $1.5
each in the name of each of th
hands. The claim is in thc of
fice and can be seen by anyon
at any time.
The fact is Mr. Roper ha
not been paid one cent for any
thing he has (done, except hi
