COTTON WAREHOUSES WILL
HELP IN MARKETING CROP

The American Cotton Association is
proposing to the cotton farmers in the
country the first improvement in the
process of marketing cotton that has
been proposed since the Civil War.
That is a system of cotton warehouses,
scattered throughout the whole cotton
belt, in which the farmers' cotton will
be sorted and insured, when it is ginned,
and held there until the farmer decides
he wants to sell it. .
If money is needed to meet pressing
financial demands, the warehouse re
ceipt will be recognized as good collat
eral at any banking -institution in the
Through the establishment o;f such a
system of warehouses in every cotton
growing state, the farmer will -become
his- own selling agent, dealing directly
with the large "buyers. The fellow with
five or ten bales of cotton will not
have to come to town then with a few
bales of his cotton crop, and offer it
for sale to the highest bidder. It will
no longer be an "under the hammer''
The cotton mills have built their own
storage warehouses, and have used them
to store the" cotton, collected from all
parts of the country -bjr their buyers.
These mills have even allowed the farm
ers to use their warehouses for storing
cotton, to keep it-out of the bad wea
ther. But this has done the farmer no
particular good in getting him a profit
above the cost of production, for his hard
earned c'ron. The cotton mills and buy
ers in large quantities for export and do
mestic trade, must have warehouses,
where large quantities of cotton can be
But not until the farmerhimself can
control, the stock in the warehouse
where his cotton is stored, will his mar
keting problem ever be solved. As long
as the vast majority of cotton of the
world is stored in warehouses, belong
ing to the spinners, little hope for a
permanent fair price for cotton can be.
Farmer-owned warehouses will be
erected only through the efforts of the
American Cotton Association, which will
offer the farmers the services of ex
pert graders, expert, warehousemen, and
expert market men. Cotton stored in
these farmer owned warehouses will be
held until a fair price is obtained, and
will be sold direct to the mills and to

FOR SEVERAL YEARS PAST, the NORFOLK TALLOW
COMPANY, of Norfolk, Va., has used a part of the by-products
of its rendering plants in the manufacture of fertili
zers for the truck growers of the Tidewater Section of Vir
ginia. The use of our fertilizers has produced such proli
fic results that we concluded several months ago to -use our
entire output of tankage, bones and blood from our render
ing plants in making various fertilizers suitable in the
growing of all crops. Wc have made a special study of the
soils, etc., for the urpose of determining what fertilizers are
required to produce the greatest yield of all crops. We be
lieve that we have solved the problem and produced a fer
tilizer that will make a good name for itself in North Car
olina, as it has done elsewhere. We produce our own raw
materials and use imported Potash only, thereby insuring
a prewar standard of quality and an assurance to tfTe farm
ers that their crops will not be ruined as tney were from
the use of war-provoked experiments, as they are alleged
to have been. ..
