During the summer 1 spent a considerable sum on my gin
nery putting everything in the best possible order, adding sev
eral new and up-to-date features. Our five gins of the most
modern type enable us to gin and pack about 50 bales a day,
giving good sample and ginning seed clean.
Krom the time we started everything works in the best of ,
order. I have engaged Mr. Harry Culbreath,-who has proven
himself to be a very capable man, to operate my gins this sea
son. Bring us your cotton. We guarantee satisfaction. My
prices are the same as last season. I bought bagging and ties
early in the summer before the advance, and can furnish them^
at the old price.
I pay the highest market price for seed or will exchange
meal and hulls for seed.
Your patronage solicit.
