Summer Suits I
Hundreds of men have already felt the need of a quick
?hange to lighter Clothing ; and it's during the summer sea
con that the better tailoring in our Suits is best illustrated.
Heavy winter fabrics can be padded and lined so heayily
that bad tailoring can be hidden. It's not so with the light
Summer Suits, where thin worsteds and half linings prevent
any snbterfage. The nnnanal can, that la given to the mak
ing of our Clothing tells in the shapeliness of these?
We are showing a very harVlsome variety of Single and
Bouble-Breasted SACK SUITS at?
$7.50 to $22.50.

Farmers' Union, Take Notice.
At the lnnt County Union the ware
house question and the matter of
select.ng a business agent was referred
back to the local Unions for their con
sideration and action by the following
resolutions, which were unanimously
1st. Do the local Unions want ware
houses? If so, submit year idea of
best plans how to seenre the same at
our next County Union on the 12th of
2o 1. Do the local Unions need the
sorv oes of a county business agentf
If so, be prepared at the next County
Unicn on the 12th of June to recom
mend some one for this important
office and a system of business rules to
govern the same.
?3rd. That these vital questions of
warehouse plans! and selection of coun
ty business agency occupy the exclu
sive attention of the next County
Uniou until these questions are dis
posed of by the Union, v. -
The foregoing resolutions sounds
more like business and lineing up in
a way to accomplish something for the
good of the organization than any
step taken up to this time, and we
trnst that all local Uniona will make
a manly and prompt response at the
next County Union to convene on the
12th of June.
DO WE NEED WAREHOUSES?
Somo of the nvre independent cot
ton growers, personally, may not need
the aid and protection that a good
bonded warehouse system offers, but
in a co-operative way the warehouso
system is the only plan by which we
can realize something for urgent needs
and keep the cotton off the market
when prices are not profitable to the
There is a large army of encumber
ed cotton growers in the South who
are obliged to realize something on
their cotton so soon aa it is ginned, and
in order to control the situation and
keep these encumbered cotton growers
( who may held the balance of "power)
from dumping their cotton on the mar
ket when prices are not profitable, the
more independent class of growers
must come to the aid of the needy in
order to protect his own cotton int?r
?t,*- There is a kind of community of
interest in this thing. Every cotton
grower, whether he makes one bale or
500 bales, is interested in each other.
If the many small or encumbered
growers are compelled to dump their
cotton upon the market at a certain
time of the year, whether prices are
profitable or not, and thus overload
the boat that we are all in, the man
that has hundreds or thousands of
bales goes down alike to the bottom
along with the men who may have one
Dr ?vo bales each. The independent
business farmers mnst go out in a kind
of missionary and business way and
touch his less fortunate neighbors
where the profits come in by co-oper
ating and why is that the unorgan
ized farmer is 'tut a dog lor the lleas
of the organized speculators to prey
our business jCGENCV.
We can never co-operate without
concentratiug our cotton under the
management of smnn sort of businees
head. We must do like tho cotton
speculators?we must put up our best
business men to handle our cotton.
Wo cannot expect men of comparative
ly no experience in this cotton hand
ling business to win out against the
buyers who have trained meu to con
duct their side of this business.
Some of our beet union men have ex
Eressed tho belief that it might be tbe
est plan to compromise on this matter
by putting two men in charge of tb<4
cotton exchange. Say we first soleut a
good man well known in the business
world and of good financial rating, and
the other man from among the farmers
who can command tbe implicit confi
dence of the formers. The key to
GUCC0E3 in this whole thing is confidence
of the farmers. It doeo look like out
of two men of this make-up we might
form a nnit that could combine the
farmers in a business effort that would
make good and stand up against any
BBd all opposition.
Our habits for the last 40 years have
been to allow others to price our pro
ducts, and their products are priced to
us by the producer. No occupation on
the /ace of God's green earth except
the f arm?r never could have withstood
the fire of this crucial test and yet
been able to have held op his head
above the level of the slums of serf
Talk about the farmers not sticking,
there never was a class of people on
earth that have more faith and sticking
qualities than the fanner.
They have stuck to the habits of
paying others their prices for all they
buy and allowing others to set prices
on tho products of the farm until many
of them are so poor, downtrodden, ig
norant and cowardly until when they
do have the courage to go out among
progressive people, they look and act
as though they were ready to apologize
to all for their appearance on earth.
This is one of the kind of farmers you
All farmers are always sticking to
some plane and trusting some one to
set prices on his cotton; then why not
stiok to the plans of your own crafts
men who are equally interested in
profitable prices with you instead of
trugiisg the man to price your cotton
who w?l get it as low as possible! The
intelligent and prosperous farmers are
responsible for the bad business habits
of his less fortunate neighbors. Why
don't you get them to go out to see and
learn how to act to save himself and all
his neighbors something! Ifyoc will
do this we will assure you that he will
Btick to the side where his dollars lay.
Evr y local nnion should have a pic
nic this summer and get all the unor
ganized farmers out to hear the good
to be done by organization, and wind
up this campaign for fairness with a
big county barbecue.
