Cotton Warehouse- Meetings.
-? ' k i
On "Cotton Day" there assembled
ut Walhalla about four hundred far--,
mers, who voted unanimously to hold
cotton for a fair price.
The only means for holding cot
ton properly is by storing in ware
houses where the cotton is insured
up to its market valuo all the time
,and where it is protected from the
weather, and whore tfle warehouse
receipt serves as security- for obtain- ?
lng needed loans to pay off debts.
Fortunately, since that meeting,
at least two communities and ono
town have practically solved their
warehouse problems. The chairman
of the warehouse committee at Cross
Roads, E. P. Bruce, has made an ex
cellent start toward getting a ware
house there; the chairman of the
committee appointed at a recent
meeting at Keowee school, J. L. Kell,
has made a good start with his com
mittee, which consists of representa
tive farmers of both noonee Creek
and Keowee sections, who Are com
bining to build a warehouse near tho
gin of Charlie Owens.
And the town which has taken the
steps toward getting warehouse space
is Walhalla. A committee composed
of three farmer?'-A. L. Ellson, M.
A. MOBS and W. T. Alexander-ap
pointed at the meeting in Walhalla
on Friday night, have arranged with
Uaylis W. Harrison to operate the
Verner tobacco factory building as a
warehouse, which will be entered in
the State Warehouse System.
Severe1 Meotlngs to be Held. ,.
In accordance with a repolution
adopted at Walhalla on "Cotton
Day," Sept. 20th, a committee of
three wore to be appointed by the
County Cotton Association officials
at various places in the county where
it is likely that warehouses would be
built, these committees to co-operate
with the agricultural agent In get
ting warehouses built.
In accordance with this resolution
a meeting will be held for the com-,
mlttees of Oak Grove and Coneross
at tH?S "Oak' GroVe school house on
Wednesday night, Sep . 29th, at 7.30
o'clock. The committee appointed
for this meeting consists of J. II.
Barnett, chairman; F.T. Petty, Clint
Barker and W. O. Alexander.
A meeting will be held at Fair
Play on Friday night, Oct. 1st, at
7.30 o'clock. Committee nppolnted
is W. R. Davis, charman; L. B. Mar
ett and J. S. Glymph.
Committees and all others of these
communities should urge a represen
Geo. R. Briggs, County Agent.
Store Seed Cotton.
Cotton should be stored in the
seed in small seed cotton houses on
the farm and ginning postponed for
By storing seed cotton and ginning
several weeks later, the quality of
ginning is better, giving a better
sample and better grade, and the
staple increases in length and value.
The leading farmers of the South
are advocating this system, and they
themselves are practicing it. They
find that it pays-and it will yay
every farmer to do this.
And then, after tho cotton is gin
ned, it should be properly ware
housed. If money is needed on cot
ton which it would prove a sacrifice
to soil, it can be obtained upon the
warehouse receipt. A warehouse that
keeps the cotton insured up to its
full market value, and at the same
time protects the cotton from wea
ther damage, and then furnishes se
curity for loans, is exactly what is
needed at this time particularly, lt
is a necessity, not a luxury.
Fortunately, a few of these ware
houses are to bo built In some com
munities. Also, arrangements have
been made by a committee of farm
ers, through Mr. Harrison, to take
over a large building In Walhalla
for a warehouse. Others will proba
bly be needed by farmers and should
be provided whore needed.

We have just received our first shipments of
Both in 1 1-4 and 3-4 ton capacity.
These Trucks are radically different from anything that has ever been
offered in this country? They have 33 per cent more loading space
than any other truck of the same capacity. When a Samson is loaded
to capacity, 45 per cent of the load is on the front wheels. No other
truck is so evenly balanced.
Also we have just received one car of Model M 12-25 Samson
Tractors. These tractors are as easily handled as an automobile? If

OFFICIAL DECLARATION RESULT
Of Second Primary Election Held in
Or o i ns; on Sept. 14.
The Oconee County Democratic
Executive Committee met Thursday
of last week and heard the various
questions that had been raised by
citizens concerning the conduct of
the election, lt was the decision of
tlio committee that the law does not
contemplate the numbering of the
ballots cunt, this practice tending to
destroy the secrecy of the ballot and
making it possible, should such be
undertaken, to show how each voter
voted in the election. For this reason
the entire vote cast at the Westmin
ster precinct, where the used tickets
were unmoored the same as the de
tachable stubs, was eliminated from
the final count. This elimination,
however, did not change the'result in
the county as a whole.
Tho total vote received by the sev
eral candidates, with the vote of the
Westminster precinct eliminated, ls
given beldw, and theso figures were
given as thc official vote cast:
