Increased Cost of Ginning.
Should the ginneries charge
more for ginning your cotton this
year than formerly, instead of
raising objectiou, reflect for a
moment and you will understan 1
why the "price has been raised.
Labor costs more, wood costs
mprey machinery costs more than
formerly, consequently the owner
of the gin, to use a common ex
pression, will be -'in the hole" un
less he charges more for the work.
Mr. D. B. Hollingsworth told the
