ning, who is chairman of the Ameri
can, Products Export and Import Cor
poration, which corporation has for
its great object the exportation of
cotton tb Europe: .
?. . jw- ? .' ;.
"impress upon people necessity
for large Stojjjc subscriptions; out
side help, impossible; we must help
ourselves or go down together. For
mation of corporation seems only
\ hope, and this is the unanimous
judgment of the best business men J
and farmers throughout the State?
. See editorial State 21st. . ' ' >.v
"Richard I. Manning."
What are WE going to do about it?
No one else is going to fight our bat
tles for us. Give stock to the.corpo-ij
ration, and GIVE QUICKLY or it
will be too late. ' ?f we do not help
ourselves, then upon our own heads
rests the blame, for then we do not
deserve anything.
The other counties are doing nb*
bly. Will you let Ocoh.ee lag behind?
I hope not. See your district commit
tee at once about taking stock liber
ally in cash, Liberty Bonds or cotton.. |
