Warning to farmers holding- cotton:

Farmers, you now have more friends

While the spinners are running on
short, time boles are wearing in every

"A string of wagons containing 200
bales of otton passed through Brown
wood, Texas, the other day?not to the
cotton yards, bat from the cotton
yards back home," because the own

Steady, there, farmers! Don't waver
tho least. Botter suffer inconvenience

down in despair again for years to
We see it reprinted in papers here
in South Carolina that tho farmers in
Texas and other western States are
letting their cotton and ssii?? wes
tern papers say that the Carolina and
Georgia farmers are turning loose
their cotton. Now, the writer of this
is in cloBe touch with farmers in all
the cotton States, and is in poBitiou to

must have real cotton, and no the cot
ton holders have in their hands the
real thing, how in the name of rea
son can the speculator get real cotton
unleBS men holding the real stuff sell
it? Buyers can Bpin long yarns out of

bluff-gas, won't spin a shirt that Will j

We have a- hint from headquarters
that there is a scheme forming to
raise prices soon to about 60. It is
thonght by the buyers that 8c. will
draw enough cotton out of tho weaker
holders to keep the spinners going for
a time, and their plans are to forco
prices down below 7c again, to remain
there for awhile in order to scare a tew
more weak brothers to let go a few
more baleB on the next r>.ise to 80.
Farmers, do not let a bale go for lees,

prices to 8c. will carry it to 10c, which
will give the farmers a reasonable
We have a letter from Mr. J. W.
Shaw and requests from a number of
our best farmors on the same line, urg
ing the importance of notifying other
farmers that there is a move among
them not to make any trades for guano
at present prices, unleBS to be paid for
with cr "on at lOo, due first December.
We ha.a had but little to say on this
line, for the reason that all i????iigent
farmers know enough about business
.to understand that there is absolutely
no possible chance for a farmer to get.
out on fertilizers at present prices and
cotton at 60. Now, there is not space
in our column for every letter or rer
quest that'comes to us, but we give a
synopsis of all requests that come in,
and urge farmers to keep up a constant
communication with their committee.
In these we get at tho popular ideas of
all farmers, on any matters of vital in
terest to all. y
Since we have had charge of this
column there has been little effort to
encourage. fermera to produce large
Crops of cotton, or how to make two
bales where one grew lost year* for in
this lies our misfortune, so long as
Others price our producta. We far
mers strive-to make; big crops, and
just eo soon as it ia apparent that we
have.accomplished our purposes, we
.begin to fear misfortune that may
come from low prices, which is sure to
como so iong as. we allow others to

como together and price . your own
