their little darling girl, Lee Nora.
While Mrs. Smith was about her
home chores little Lee Nora and the
baby were left only a few minutes
alone, and Lee Nora was playing
with a broom and caught fire. When
the mother reached her she realized
at once that the burn would provo
fatal. The child was burned about
9 o'clock on Wednesday morning and
lived until (Friday night. *
She was a rosebud here only four
years and 22 days. ?For some pur
pose God saw fit to take little Lee
Nora from them before she became
contaminated with the trials and
sins of the world. iSho was tho sun
shine of the home and was a child
who won a place In the heart of
everybody who knew her.

ON CO-OPERATIVE MARKETING.
Mr. McDonald Has tho Association
Sized Up Correctly-Sign v Up.
Cotton-growers of Oconee, listen!
In South Carolina there are moro
than one thousand cotton buyers,
nine hundred book-keepers, between
six and seven hundred weighers and
over twenty-six hundred laborers
that handle our cotton annually.
They have ari got to live. Some of
them are honest, but some of them
are rascals. Some grade your cotton
right, while some under-grade il.
Some give, good weight and some do
not. There are hundreds of bales of :
samples rebated each year that add
more profit, to the .cotton vb^vj^pj |
present system for marketing cotton
is rotten. Wo are paying annually
more than a million dollars a year
in this State to get our cotton to the
manufacturer. This sum of money
that we are losing would send every
child In Ononee county to a seven
months' public school for fourteen
years. 'Besides ? there ls an annual
loss of an average of more than 17
pounds per bale, caused by weather
damage, cutting rind handling, ship
ping and reshipping.' There ls not
one of our cotton buyers of South
Carolina under bond. He is free to
under-grade or under-weigh, and we
aro absolutely at his mercy. We are
not .graders, neither are we cotton
merchants. We cnn do the big, hard
job-we can raise and deliver it
but we can't market it. Why not?
Because we are not organized, lt
has been the cry for generations
gone that we won't stick. Why havo
we not stuck? di ec a use we have no
confidence in one another.
Wo now have the co-operative
marketing plan, which has been tried
in some of the smaller countries of
Europe successfully for more than
fifty years, and by the fruit growers
of California, the peach and water
melon growers of 'Georgia. They
never made any money until they
went to selling co-operatively. Tho
cotton growers of Oklahoma have
proven to us that lt is the only sen
sible way to market out cotton. The
average loss in weight and damage
is very small. The men who handle
our cotton through this association
will be heavily bonded.
Tho greatest part of this market
ing system is that we have to stick
Tho greatest "buggar" to some ls the
five-dollar organization fee. They
would rather pay the 'fifteen or twen
ty dollars per bale of cotton through
the old system. The only man that
is knocking it is the cotton mer
chant. Don't be misled by him, for
wo are going to put him out of busi
ness, and he feels rather sore at tho
prospect of hunting a now Job. If
every preacher, teacher, doctor and
business man would preach and talk
this eo-operat've marketing doctrine
to all their customers, South Caro
Uno would have every bale moving
through this system in two years.
Let us turn our business of mar
keting over to a few good, well
bonded men, and in ten years we will
bo setting the price on cotton.
Men, sign up-for your wife's and
children's sake-sign up for God's
sake-and help stop so much gam
bling in cotton,
(Hadn't you rather do business
through a fow woll bonded mon than
