Thc practical mind will be read

-an Adjustable over a Straight
?frame Weeder, in as much as its
construction permits it tobe used,
not only as a weed exterminator,
??hile the crops are young, but as a
SHAJiLOW CULTIVATOR between the rows Until the crops mature,
which method of cultivation has interested the up-to-date farmer to such an
-extent that the thousands who have been agitating it are a Unit in testifying
to its necessity, claiming that growth and production of crops depend upon
frequent and shallow cultivation, and that no implement yet invented is as
welt adapted to the condition as the Keystone Adjustable weeder and Shal

Sumelhing (jucer About the rcrtillzcr
After makiog some investigation
looking iuto tho matter of fertilizer
tags our mon of our "secret service"
have come to the conclusion thal there
must be "something dead up the
creek" in this thing! We lind that in
one car, unloaded at Anderson, eon
fained enough loose tugB to supply i
another car, while every ?nek had tags.
This is double the amount required by
The write saw a box some B?X inches
square nearly full of tags that were j
found IOOBO in another car. while nil
the ftacbs were properly tagged. One of
the State's fertilizer inspectors reports
that he often finds largo numbers of
loose tags about in the cara, sometimes a
large bunch ia found hanging up inside
the cars. We have interviewed quite
a numbor of dealers and handlers of
fertilizers who state positively that
they have never seen anything like the
amount of extra tags thrown about
loose as they see this season.
The other side: Some of the manu
facturers of fertilizer account for the
extra tags found in cars from careless
ness of the handlers caused by the un
precedented rush of thia Beason. It is
clear to all that the fertilizer people,
or some other folks, have money to
burn or else the bottom of this thing
A System of Marketing Cotton.
By request of N. C. Murray, presi
dent ot the Farmers' State Union of
Texas, I hereby give to the presa for
publication my views in regard to a
system of marketing cotton.
First, let every State organize their
farmers into the Farmern' Union, then
elect from each State a proportionate
number of your beBt men, who are
honest and qualified todo the business.
Select some Southern city, centrally
locatod. New Orleans being the great
est American center, 1 would suggest
that city be designated aa the place to
carry on the system. Establish at
I that rmi nt a Fanners7 Cotton Ex
change, and in connection with the
Exchange, establish a secret Bureau of
Information, by which means direct
information couid be communicated to
the Execntivo Board of every State
Union of America within a few hourn
time; eaoh State Board could furnish
the information to the County Pr?si
dent or Secretary, and by him each
Within three daya time every cotton
grower in America would know the
exact number of bales of cotton in the
hands of the spinners, and the number
of.bales of spot cotton; also, tho num
ber of bales ia the bends of the far
mer. With this reliable information,
and nothing fletitione connected with
it, the confidence of every American
cotton farmer would be strengthened,
and when orders were issued from cen
tral Exehango head an ar tern to held
cotton oft of the market for any defi
nite time ic would be done at any
By this system of management all
fictitious reports could be set aside and
confidence in the cotton producers,
one for another, would be firmly ea
tablished, and the great army of cot
ton producers could swing into line,
and the boars of our cotton market dis
appear quickly. This being accom
plished, a uniform system of prices on
raw material and manufactured goods
could at once be established, and no
I longer would the American cotton
producers be the toys and playthings
of the cotton gamblers of the world.
Why our American cotton proi neera
do not act more in concert, in holding
their cotton is on account of loBt con
fidence in our statisticians, and even
in our ginners reports issued by the
government, because of the fact that
in many instances it is known that
ginners have faited to give a correct
report, for pecuniaiy reasons. This
being true, we have no no arco to
look to for correct information.
Tho only thing left for the cotton far
mer is organization. By the above
system we can get a report direct from
every cotton producer every two
weeks through the secretaries of onr
local organizations, this information
furnished by them to our National Bu
reau of Information at New Orleans,
we io return would receive a general re
port from the Burean of Information,
of the exaot cotton situation. By thia
means the Esch an gc would be in posi
tion to iasne correct orders in regard to
the holding or selling of cotton; and
the growers being familiar with the
exaot conditions, would be in a position
I offer the above, by request, aaa
plan by which the problem of market
ing cotton may be settled, and for
every thinking cotton growers' con
sideration. S om o parties, perhaps,
will Bay that all the farmers can't lbs
organized. Th? i? true. But tnia w?i?
flit no figaro So far ar/ reporting the
amount of cotton raised is concerned;
na eaoh local secretary contd easily as
certain tba number of bales of cotton
raised by all who are not members of
Union. And with a concerted action
of two-thirds of tbs American cotton
growers a system of jost and remuner
ative prices could bo maintained. I do
not claim the above plan to be com
plete or absolute, bat ono of mature
consideration, However, many sug
gestion o may be made as an improve
ment/ and should anything better be
offered, I am ready to strike hands
.With my cotton prod acing friends for a
forward march, until avery enemy to
jost and remunerative prices on our
colton, shall be exterminated forever.
1 would ask every paper throughout
the cotton growing belt of the United
States that ia friendly to the cotton
producers canse, to please copy.
