Ten Cent Cotton is Too Low.
There ia not a county in the whole
cotton hutt but what is below last
year's yield ot' cotton, und this short
age ranees in the countiea from ono
hal? a ero? to three-fourths of a crop.
No reliable source hes put tim wbmo
average more thnu three-fourths of a
I? our bales of cotton on a big crop
like last year at ten cents turned into
tho growers hands $200, while the*o
baleB on a short crop nt 13 cents would
only turn in $105. .That in, if weare
short one-fourth and got 13 cenia this
year, wo have not as good a return for
our labor aa wo got last year at 10
cents for our cotton.
This is the reason why our cotton
buyers, and some of our cotton holders
are anxious for tho dumpers to rush up
and unload their crops as fast as pem
siblo and get down and out of the way.
The cotton speculator, in order to save
interest on his purchnso money, would
like you to turn in your atut?as "arly
as possible, while the cotton gu. <ver,
who is holding his crop, is also inter
ested in getting the dumpers down and
ont of the way.
Overdoing the Thing,
Most cotton growers were more or
less pler^sd with thu new idea of con
centrating the cotton-ginning busi- I
DOBS. At the outset it looked like we J
were to get our cotton ginned at about |
enc fourth the price it used to cost at
our email gins in the country. But
all is hot gold that glitters.. Many of
oar -farmers-who count the cost
figure that it han cost them more, in
cluding the time of their teams and
drivers, to patronize the large gina
that are crowded than it used to cost
them to git* their own cotton nt home,
or pay the Braall glnner nearer home
double toll and not have to hang up
at the gin all day waiting for your
turn. . -
ThfiBO l&Vge Bins' do tho work BO
cheap that small count -y ginB cannot
afford to gin at the prices, but at the
.same time it costs the average farmer
about, the same that it used ta coat
him when he paid about double the
amount of toll nearer home and lost
less time at the very time he is needed
at home. We can't help from feeling
thia way about rbis thing of letting
one work for you too cheap: When
we have our cotton ginned at cost, or
below cost, I feel just like me or the
t other fellow had stole sometbiug.
About the only remedy we would
recommend in this thing is: Where
the distance will justify the outlay tor
the plant is to put up co-operative
ginB. and charge each other a fair
profit for ginning, or store your cotton
in the seed and wait until tho rush ia
over, when you may have your gin
! Tiing done without waiting.
MoBt good Tannera, are opposed to
having their cotton ginned tor noth
ing, and they are more opposed to hav
ing $...? ir cotton stored in warehouses
free or charge; "If one does nor. feel
like beor the other fellow bad.stolen

the farmer to repay'it. 1
There is always av place to stop at in
these r?vb?tttlonary things. Concentra-*
tion can be over-worked; an? reduc tion? ]
in costean be made to look very cheap
in Borne things when in reality some
times tho cheapest things are thc cost
liest things in the end. Equitable
prices for every thing and fairness in
business is a good motto for the Far
mers' .UnioiW v, *
Figares, dp. not lie unlesRvpeople

facts before and after working the fig-,
ur?s; For an example of this sort we
submit the folio win g squib from the
editorial columns of tho Green ville
News and the Ensley Messenger:
*<The Texas farmer is a very foxy
proposition. While he is urging
Southern planters to hold cotton, he

. S Now* any on? reading this statement,
without'-knowing the condition ol'
things in Texas, would be led to be
lieve that aft the port recoipts in
Texas means just so much cotton sold,

is being made in a canning way.to in

they are sorely sell lng .
There is A vast amount of cotton ho

receipts ls cotton sold.
