Some time ago thc Charleston
branch of tho Southern Wholesale
Grooors' Association adopted a reso
lution recommending that all mer
chants and shippers usc cotton bag?,
instead of jute or burlap, for tho ship*
jnent of suoh commodities as rice,
corn, meal, grits, sugar and tho like.
Tho movemeut is a good one and
should bo extended. Not only is the
cotton bag nester in appearance than
the jute bag, but it is more economi
cal in that it is stronger and will last
longer, and when empty is of greater
value. Furthermore, ootton is a na

and jute have to be imported. The
use of ootton for bags would largely
increase the demand for the South's
great staple crop. Another great

is very warm for South Carolinians.
