Card From Mr. Thurmond.
All classes of all sections of the
"United States are affected by the
present frenzied financial situation.
Don't think you are the only person
likely to incur set backs and losses
this ^year for practically all are in
the "same boat; however, don't) be
come demoralized and stampeded,
for the boat will land safely yet. Re
cently, information from all section?
of the country has come to me, and
I am pleased to say that the people |'
of our county and State are weath
ering this financial hurricane as well
or better, than the majority of the]
sections of our country.
Money is tight, and times are hard, ]
but I have seen worse. I recall some
years ago when cotton sold for 4
cents a pound, and the country was
scarce of corn ?.nd meat; now, we
have a bumper corn crop and th?t
means an adequate supply of bacon.
When cotton sold for 4 cents a
pound black clouds hung low but
they rolled by and the sunshine was
.as bright as ever.
?The West is dependent upon its
grain, hay and livestock, in addition
to those industries we c?n grow sor
ghum cane, ribbon cane, peas, fruit,
Vegetables, velvet beans and cotton- j
and can live absolutely from our own
f] gardens and fields and grow cotton
Ias a surplus crop. While the market
-value of our land does not compare
with fhat of many states in. the nox-th
and west, in my opinion, it is worth
far more, for we can make every-1
thing they can, and a great deal
Our people generally are industri
ous but we need skill and are rapid
ly acquiring it-we are all right, just
let. our creditors give us a chance and
our abundant harvest will pay prac
tically what we owe if cotton goes
up, but if it doesn't they have the
pledge of our honor, and this expe
rience will teach us sense that will
be worth millions to us another year.
My hope for higher cotton is found
ed upon three reasons; first, that the
export and import corporation will
help; second, the fact that the north,
east, south and west are all shiver
ing in this financial freeze, makes me
believe that congress which meets
very soon will take some beneficial
action ; third, the world is said to
I need every bale grown.
Sow a big part of your land to
grain and fertilize with cotton seed
and prepare to cut your acreage in
'cotton another year, at least 40 per
cent, and make at home the supplies
for your table and farm-they are
better than any you can buy, and far
cheaper, and thereby, your need for
Let Santa Claus come as usual
don't disappoint the children'. Just
don't be stampeded, the clouds will
soon roll by.
We are all right.
