all trades in the South are interested
in having the cotton farmer get good
profits on his cotton.
Cotton spinners and speculators are
the only parties against rising prices
of cotton in the South. Wo should

ignore the cotton speculators. We
need the spinners to work up our cot

they may be bears on the cotton mar

speculators may bo depended upon to
fluctuate and disturb the cotton mar
