Our Cotton on Hand.
Our effor s in these columns has been
cbielly directed towards checking* if
possible, tho increase of acreage by
Billy farmers in cotton; we have not
thought it necessary to givo any ad
vice here to the farmers now holding
their cotton. These are men of boai
ness, end are usually men with suffi
cient grit, pluck and financial backing
to carry ? lu ir pointa and know what
they aro about. The cotton holders
that now have tliis matter in hand are
about aa good financiers, and have
about as much collateral and backing
behind them as the bear ele
ment have. Cotton holders know now
that about all the acary holders have
been shaken ont, and that the cotton
bear is now up against the resd solid
Stuff. Spot holdere are well e>ware of
the fact that the spinner has got to
have about all the cotton bo toro tbe
next crop comes in, and it matters not
whether tho next crop will be a small
or a large crop. The thing is this, the
mills must run or the walking mobs
that are parading the streets of too
foreign manufacturing cities calling
for work or bread will wage riot.
Stopping the mills under such condi
tion would be equivalent to striking a
match in a powder house. Ho'J yo ar

If we are not badly deceived in the
aigns of the times, farmers that do not
heed the warnings of the Formero1
Union and plant more food crops now,
they will be running- around next
Foll wanting every bod v's ad vic? about
how to bay $20.00 a ton peavine hay
and $1.00 a bushel corn with 6 cents
Our big supply men. and mule men,
too, hod better butt in this thing at
once along with the Farmers' Union in
their efforts to induce farmers to plant
more food crops and less cotton, or the
gama next Winter will be nip and tuck
between these men and the buzzards aa
to who w??? get the most revenue out
of this mule mortgage business.
A gootf deal ia being said recently
about live a ink associations in each of
the counties of the State, which will be
a good thing if our farmers will take
to them, a lui instead of bragging about
selling ptuviur hay and other food
crops, they w?il mino and feed more
stock ana take cart) vi thc manure,
they need not be howling any longer
about the guano trust!
Our Farmers' Unions should take to
this live stock idea like young ducks
take to water; it ie the natural thing
to do and right along the straight road
to the permanent building up of the
up-to-date progressive idea of the in
dependent farmer of. the South.
. AU our Farmers' Unions abonld be
each in itself a good live stock associa
tion, and talk more ebon* raising more
and better stock and talk less about
raining more cotton.

ro ora7 Unions have been trying to make

neither the grain growers nor tho cot
ton grower Save been able to get cara
to ablp the corn. We are told that
corn has been offered there from 83
cents to 86 cents per bushel, and thous
aads of bushels have been piled on the
ground there rotting while cotton far
mers in Sooth Carolina are paying 75
costs tc 80 cents for their corn When
they, can get it. .It seems that the
.grain elevator men and the B* B. men
get about aa much out of the Western
Cbrn Crop as the corn growers get,
while South Carolina; cotton farmers
foot the bills tor the whole push.

Culumbia, March 1G.-Tho state
ment has been made to tho Comptrol
ler General that whoo the majority of
tho assessors for Greenville County
were asked to sign the oustomary oath
that they would assess thc property at
its "truo valuo" and "equalizo it,"
Homo of the members of tho boards of
assOiJBors balked. It waft stated to
them ?hat "true valuo" meant "true
value/' i. e., a 100 per cent valuation.
Some doolinod to oigo. Then others,
so the story goos, wished to insert of
thoir own accord, GO per oent. Tho
law does not permit any aincudment
of this obligation. Now the fact de
velops that there is only one assessor
in all Greenville Couuty, who is said j
to bo qualified. Undor tho J?W all
officers must bo commissioned, and
there is only one oommission extant in
Greenville County for a niembor of thc
board of assessors, and that was issued
to Mr. Boswell in 1894. If this bo
oorroot, then there will have to bo a
new deal in Greenville, and the assess
ors will have to bo commissioned by
some ono before their wo?k will have
legal foroo and effeot. They must
