i?t is to control themselves.
We don't need more money, more
jen or better businessmen in the cot
on States in order to manage the cot
on business. About all you need is to
;ot together and use what you Already
lave in band, like business men should
io, and the power you have will as
onish the cotton farmers as well as
he balance of the world.
Why is it that we find so many
touthern men engaged in the cotton
vado on Wall Street, Kew York? ls
C not because these Southern men
rom the field know more about the
onditions of things in the South and
novo about how to control the cotton
armers than foreigners dot
Well, then,why not come together at
tome and UGO our own business men
md talents, and our peculiar natural
idvanta^es for our own benefit instead
ii allowing foreigners to reap j the
troiito from our fortunate natural
rifts in the way of tho ideal cotton

Cotton Warehouse or the Poorhouse
Which Do You Prefer?
For many years cotton producers
lave been producing money makiog
:otton crops, but in placing the cotton
ttMffi the market all others in the cot
rim business have become richs while
the Southern cotton producers, as a
rule, have remained poor.
There is but the one course for this,
rod here it is: Most any common elod
ttoprer can produce a good crop of cot
ton, hut it takes a different kind of
work to place this cotton on the mar
ket vo as to retain the profits in the
banda of the producers, where it justly
MGF.'J any common cotton farmer
can, single-handed, independently and
alone prod nco a profitable crop of cot
ton,but it taara the combined efforts
Df many thousand cot ton producers to
keep th? old crowd of cutten specula
tors from reaping all the profits.
? These specalators have applied a
code bf business rales and methods or
system in handling your cotton crops
that producers have failed to do for
themselves. These men have supplied
the cotton warehouses and the- bnsi
DOBO organizations for the parp?se of
distributing yonr cotton among cotton
ui5w?fsstsrcs snd -hive, sa might be
expected, reaped their profits in mon
ey while the producers of cotton have
stood aloof from concert of action and
took their profits ont in pram bli og and
cursing the speculators.
There is bat one. remedy for this
eviir and that is ibu cotton producers
mast ?apply tho facilities for handling
their; own crops, until tho cotton is
placed into the hands of consumers at
a reason able profit to the prod nc er a,
or the cotton . farmer will remain in
hie present hazardous position.
and pat your cotton in balk,' and then
Elace your best men in charge nf your
usin?es or the speculator will contin
ue todo this thing for youl Yon cot
ton growers mast build year own
warehouses to protect your bnsi ness or
the same old Crowd will, continue to
do this tor yon, and continue to levy a
tariff for this job to Snit *heir idea
about this work and not to suit your
l?t?W&Sii \ Y--:.- i--.-..-. i ? ?'.
r armers, preparo ?or war ia time of
peace, t? overa I warehouses are now on
tho way, not yet. completed. Seme
farmers claim that they approve of the
warehouse plans, but thoy can't rate?
tho money for the stock; well, now, I
deny thia. In roany cases thia is not
toge.': We kn ow goba and well that
if some would try; they could get np
thia wareboute\ stock Jost os well aa
thny ffnt np otb?r t-biogs that ere not
ao important. ? . . .
Finally, wo wish to say to all .Te
calamity howlers and fault-finder*
that y ou cannot build warehouses with
roar to??ues, it takes tho casa! And
inother'thing, too, that if yoa will not
try to help yourselves when tho way
irt open for you to doit, do for the sake
if common good of the country, and
