Best Thing Yei.
The Virginia-Carolina Chemical
Company has contributed $1,000 to
the fund of tho Cotton Growers1 Asso
ciation and several of the Bmallei'
companies have mado equally liberal
contributions in aiding the farmers
to obtain better prices for their pro
But the funniest thing yet in this
line are tho comments made on tho
liberality ot the fertilizer companies.
One farmer who did not belong to
either of the farmers1 organizations
said: "Well, I guess the guano men
can afford to do that, all they have to
do to get it back is to charge it upon
the price of fertilizers and the farmer
will have it to pay at last." Now if
this thing works out in the way stated,
it is a snTcndiu idea. If a farmer will
not join in an organized effort to help
himself there Ought to be some plan
Eut in vogue to compel him to contri
ute to tte efforts being made to ben
efit all cotton growers.
The farmers' union is well fortified
when it comes to charging up things
to them. They are well organized for
business and can protect themselves
against any and all effort? of this na
ture, but the unorganized farmers
-that class of farmers that will not
join the union-can b* worked to suit
the trade on any old plan that the
other fellow may desire; bnt when the
farmers' uuion in met, it means a very
different farmer. The union maa be
longs to a large body of the best
fermera in the country and is in a posi
tion io protect his interests and is
Just here it is in order to explain the
difference between '/ThoFarmers' Edu
cational and Co-operative Union" and
"The Cotton Growers' Protective As
sociation." The "protective associa
tion" is an open door or conventional
organization and allows farmer's, mer
chants, bankers, lawyers, cotton mill
men and moat anybody to loin them;
while the "educational and co-oper
ative union" allowa none to join but
farmers, ministers and doctors. The
union isa secret organization, while
the -"protective association" holds ita
sessions with open doors.
The object of both these organiza
tions is to benefit the farmers of the
cotton S tate 3, and it goes without say
ing that when you foster the interest
of agriculture in thia country every
other interest therein is benefited.
Therefore both these organizations
are jivale for good, each having chosen
its own plans to accomplish tho same
purposes and we have cautioned all
' union men against speaking one word
against tho' "protective association."
But on the other hand, when you find
a farmer that will not join the union,
ask him to join the "protective asso
ciation" and if he will not join either
of these write bis name and poeSofHce
down and ask him "What might be
tho name" of the organization he be
^BoaByi? seems rather fortunate than \
unfortunate to have two associations,
for all farmers eire not of the same
mind, neither aro all Christians of the
same mind. But all Cb doti an s wlli

We have it from good authority that
some of the Southern mills, aa-well as
the milla farther North, have actually
bought most of their supply of cotton

for this season through cotton specu
lator for 0 to 91-2 cents, while the
market at the door of some of our
ho?je mills ranges nearly two cents

9 to a halb between the price paid hy
some ot our milla i nd tho prices offer

the grover 'x> eve tho foreign cotton

ty and the mi!lu cu account of the al
leged division of territory anio-?g our
local milla and other cotton lu.vere;
and this thiD# has been increasing lu
intensity with age until tho farmers
are now outspoken in tho mattel and
are on the verge of open rebellion.
Now if the local mills do not u :m t
the people'H cotton, it is up to them
ta remove the impediment which, they
have created, and open tho diurs to
any boyer who wants to como ir and
take the cotton, and there are V>!?>nty
of them that are willing to do lids if
thn mills will concent.
The farmers have and are now solic
iting friendly business relations with
our mills, and are determined to bring
this matter to n focus at an oarly date,
and we trust that our home mills will
line np with all other business people
and snow that they too belong to the
grand movement of the South to retain
the prolits of its own great wealth;
produoing staple cotton among ita own
geonle upon a plan of equitable cl io t ri -

We pointed ont to yon before in
the farmers1 column that cotton would
?o up from G cents to over 8 cents, get
to moving out from the weaker hold
ers and then drop back low again, and
it hos done it.
We now Bay io you that cotton will
soon go up again to 8 cents and if no
ono sells at 8 cents the same effort
that carries it to 8 cents will carry it to
10 cents if all will stand linn.
l?e weak and unfaithful holders
are nearly all out of the ring now, and
we trust that tho remaining holdere
will i?r?Ul out to the lost or carry the
cotton over to the next crop, when they
will be oui i of-10 cents.

Latest War News.
[There waa no cessation of the
fighting between the Russian and
Japanese armies in Manchuria Monday.
Hussinn reports state that at a distance
the tido of battle in the immediate
vicinity of Mukden seemed to bo ebb
ing. The most that tho war critics nt
St. Petersburg seem to hopo for at
preaont is that Gen. Kuropatkin has
succeeded iu re-establishing his lino
of retreat iu tho direction of Harbin.
Word h?a roached Newchwang, how
over, which has no confirmation from
other sources, that tho Japanese aro
already north of Mukdeu, with a large
force, and that tho Russians aro facing
a disastrous defeat. Thero appears to
be a possibility that Gen. Kui ok i hus
drawn off a portion of his anny from
vho ceutro and sent it to reinforce tho
iMvisiouB engaged iu thinking movo
iients. GOD. Kalbave, tho moBt trusted
of Gen. Kuropatkin'a otlicurB, ia per

forces in tho trianglo between the
railway and the Hun River, whioh vital
position tho Japaaeso have been as
sailing for several days. Russian
reports admit that 13.000 men have
been wounded, but makes no mention
of the number killed, and ot the aaiue
time assert that the Japanese have
lost 30,000 in killed or wounded.]
St. Petersburg, 71/arch 0-2:50 p. m.
-The* result ot the greatest battle of
modern times is expected to be deter
mined today or tomorrow. Although
Gen. Kuropatkin has evidently made
every preparation to cover his retreat
by removing his accumulated stores
and munitions northward, it is now
the opinion of military men here that
one side or the other cannot escapo au
Field Marshal Oyaum'o strategy in
this battle is nov/ clear. He startled
and amazed the war office by the mar
vellous daring of Gen. Kuroki's ad
vance against the extreme Russian left
and tho series of blows delivered at
tbe.centre, where no less than thirteen
separate attacks have beon launched
by tb Imperial GuardB ten miles east
of Pi viloif Hill. But it is now real
ized tim?- the heavy blows at the left
were intended to mask tho real turn
ing movement, which came like a holt
from a clear sky out of the west. Ku
ropatkin fell into the trap. The sit
uation seemed an exact duplicate of
that at Lino Yang, and the Russian
commander-in-chief hastened to nineo
forces to meet Kuroki. Friday tbe
whole situation was suddenly revers
ed, when with lightning; rapidity the
Japanese turning operation began on
the plain between the Hun and Lino
rivers. In order to succeed Oy ama
threw the neutrality cf China to tbe
winde. Gen. Nogi, with his Poit
Arthur veterana, moved up the right
bank of tho Hun and fell like an
avalanche upon the weakened Ruesian
right, doubling it back in confusion,
the Japanese advance being co-ordina
ted with the advance straight from the
west of /? Japanese column of 40,000
men/ which circled around or through
Chinese neutral territory.
Kuropatkin evidently was taken by
surprise. It waa not until Saturday
night that he was able to shift suffi
cient reinforcements west to stem the
tide, when the Japanese were within
sight of Mukden.
But the latest advices are to the of
feet that the Japanese, exhausted by
their tremendous- efforts, have everv
where stopped; fwd nov/, if ever, Z*.uro
catkin's hour has come. Military crit
ica declaro Oy ama has not great
enough superiority to ?lake risks. Ac
cording to the war office, Oyama has
not over 70,000 men in excess of Kuro
patkin, whose forces total about 340,
000. Kuropatkin'a chance, the war
office says, is an opportune offensive as
nasaivA reeieisuccirould lie fatal.
" Kuropatkiu'o losses in killed and
wounded np io last night are placed
at 23,500. . . '
Oyama is believed to have already
lost fully forty thousand men. The
Japanese army; according to the pris
oners, is greatly es h nus ted. They
