COTTON PAHMKKS A KIO WAKNED
The Hig Association Says All Signs
Are Not to \HI Pursued.
Columbia, Jan. 13.-"Tho advance
in (he cotton market during the past
few days has been due largely to tho
growing impression on the New York
exchange that tho farmers of (he
South are actually going to reduce
their cotton acreage this spring,'
says a statement given out from the
headquarters of the South Carolina
Division of the American Cotton As
social ion in (his city.
"Attention of tho public was called
by the association to the opinions of
well known colton linns, which have
boen printed in the papers recently.
Several of these linns are quoted as
Raying that 'the reports that fanners
are freely signing the acreage; reduc
tion pledges had influenced the mar
ket."
Warning that the price of codon
might be forced up by the cotton in
terests around planting time in an
effort to "fool the fanners" into
planting another large crop was also
quoted in the statement. "We wish
to urge thc fanners to sign the
pledges and live up to them," tho as
sociation says. "If they will only do
this we will be able to at least sell
our cotton for what il costs. The
minute the market becomes convinc
ed that we have reduced our acreage
we believe (here will bo a sharp up
ward turn. We must not be stam
peded by any advance, however, into
planting another large crop. If we
are we will be in a worse lix next fall
(han we are now. The only thing
that can save us will be a drastic re
duction in cotton acreage and a very
greatly increased acreage in food and
feedstuffs. Wo believe the farmers
of the South have awakened to this
fact."

to-day by a child who sought en
trance to tho little grocery store of
which Orlander was the proprietor,
to make a small purchase. Finding
tho door eloped the little girl went to
the side entrance leading to the sleep
ing quarters of the family. Shriek
ing for help, she aroused the neigh

Lying across their beds, clad in
their night clothes, .he man, tho wo
man and the children were found.
Walls, bed clothing and floor were
spattered with blood, while a broken
latch on the window showed how an
ontranco had been gained.
Moans were issuing from thc lips
of Ibo woman. She was conscious do
spile her terrible injuries .but, with
her Jaw split, unable lo talk. Her
husband lay beside her. the top of
his skull broken. The children were
unconscious, suffering from great
gashes in arms, legs ?ind shoudors.
Although an Italian merchant ls

REDUCE YOUR COTTON ACREAGE
Dr lionK Fours, Possible Advance In
Price May Lend Many Wrong.
Clemson College Jan. 13.-"1 con
; foss that 1 am 'moro-or loss skepti
cs! of the willingness of the farmer
j to meot a situation by reducing his
; acreage In cotton," says W. W. l ong,
! director bf the extension service, in
discussing tho prosont situation and
tho future outlook for cotton prices.
"I appreciate that he is entirely
honest when ho expresses tho will
ingness at this sanson of the year to
reduce h's acreage, but I very much
fear that when planting time arrives
and the cotton market becomes some
what stronger, and tho tendoncy is
Tor higher prices, that ho will forgot
his good intentions, oxprossed a few
months before, and satisfy himself
with tho thought that the other fel
low ls going to make tho reduction.
I want to emphasize this fact, that
unless the cotton acreage of tho
South ls greatly reduced, those farm
ers who are now holding cotton will
bo forced to sell not only what ls on
hand, but this next year's crop, at a
prlco that will not only be disap
pointing, but that this period of
demoralization will, of necessity,
havo to continue. Thero never was a
time when tho situation as to tho
price of cotton is so absolutely In tho
hands of the farmer. If he will act
with that Intelligence and good, com
mon sense and conservatism that he
has always been credited with, this
situation can bo solved, lt will re
fluir? the development of the spirit
of self-denial, a willingness to make
sacrifices, unceasing labor, with tho
determination to make every farm
In South Carolina absolutely solf
supporllng, for man and beast, and
an intelligent reduction of the cotton
acreage.
HOME-MADE HIDES
ARE TOO UNCERTAIN
lt Does Not Pay Farmer to Tan
His Own Leather.
.Packing Houses Have Considerable
Advantage Because of Ability to
Carefully Qrade Skins-Holes
Are Avoided.
Apparently it doesn't pay the farm
er to tan his own leather. The bureau
of chemistry, United States Depart
ment of Agriculture, ts conducting
leather-making experiments upon the
j scnie to which the average farmer
i would have to adjust his work, and
, specialists say that tho results ob
, tallied thus far do not warrant gen
eral practice. Good leather can be
j made In Individual tanneries, but the
results are too uncertain to give re
liable profits,
i The work wns taken up hy the de
portment when lt became evident that
, the farmers were feeling the Injustice
j of a transaction wherein they sold a
i whole cowhide for less than they paid
ont for a pair of work shoes-an oc
? currence not nt all unusual. Investl
I gatton shows that the leather dealer
! ls not entirely to blame for the low
? prices that the farmer receives for
j his hides. Too often thc hide from
I the fnrm cow Is tnkon off fh a care
less manner that leaves the skin full
of cuts and holes-farm hldos aro nev
: er ns uniform as those bought from
the packing houses, where the animals
. ore Curcfully graded and the skins
removed by expert skinners. For that
reason the hide buyer ls always will
ing to pay more for the packer's prod
uct than he cnn offer the farmer.
Then, too, the farmer sells hts cow
I hide to the Junk dealer, who deducts
his profit from tho price he pays.
Whenever lt Is possible to collect a
number of hldos and skins lt will pay
the owner to deal directly with a
largo dealer, tho specialists say.
