Barely reap the profits, whether it be

mers, by growing food crops and get
ready for the big nattle next fall. You
have been engaged in little picket
fighting, finding ont where ycur ene
mies are and their plans of compaign
ing, but the main battle, the struggle
to*win or dio, is laid for the next har
vest. The formers are organizing as
never before; they are beginning lo
learn their need, and in the r lean time
the whole cotton manufacturing inter
est of old England is forming a com
pact with New York to try to down
us. Batas we produce the cotton and
have it already in hand, bow in the
name of reason can these pirates get i
the crop unless we let them have itV
Make yonr cotton as a surplus and the
thing is done. .
How is This?
A few years ago we made eleven
million bales and got only hom 8 to G
cents for it* anchscw we have made
two and a half million more and prices
range from 7 to 0 cents. Have the
buyers suddenly become very chari
table and paying the farmer more for
his cotton than it is worth? Or did
rho cotton mnnipnlatoro in 1880 pull
the farmerf for about half the value of
Some bravo formera itev tong back
got up io a publie me?. < and had
the audacity to say that ,e cause of
cotton going- np to 8} cen was brought
about by the action of the farmers ia
holding their cotton, and that the only
thing that forced prices down again to
7 cents was the untrue and shaky fol
lows turning too much cotton loose
around 0 cents. -
Thia fellow ought to have been ruled
ont '.f order for making statements
about farmers having anything to do
with the jp! Icing of their production.
Never before has it been proven that
the producer had anything to do with
either raising or lowering the price of
cotton, but m this case it was clearly
shown . that the cotton prower dui
both. He raised theprice by holding
and he lowered it by letting go. Take
courage from this lesson ana co bet
The cotton spinnners1 association is
now bass>, ss SSWVM nt thia timo> o?
year, seading over.; here the "bluff"
that if the South doesn't quit acting so
foolish, and plant more cotton and sell
it cheaper, they will go to work in an
organized way and grow their own
cotton in some of their own provin
Now, England and all the outside
world tried to raise cotton while the
South was busy fighting daring the
GO's, but the price went to1 about a dol
lar a pound, and the longer they tried
it tho higher it got until it sold for
.1.60 a pound at the close of the war.
For ioyears otber countries have sent
down South and took off some of our
Southern cotton growers, cotton seed
and tools, to grow cotton in other
countries, but at the winds np of these
experimenta they all came out about
like the Alabama man did in import
ing monkeys to y3k cotton. This
Alabama man said he was successful
ia getting tho monkeys to pick cotton,
bat lt took two men to make one mon
key pick. Reports say that cotton
will grow to acme extent in other
countries, but it takes two of our
Southerners, to show one foreigner
how to rafee the cotton "id keep him
at itv -
The Sooth owns the ideal cotton ,
belt of tho world, and they know how
to grow it too weih and they aro now
learning how to sell and control this
God-Riven blessing and we axe going
to do it. 7 ? ,;
There ls scarcely a farmer anywhere
that does cot know that if he had half
the cotton crop in his hands he could
get his own price for it, but some have
