There is Running la lt.
If wo farmers don't run tho specu
lator oat ho will keep on vuaoiug the
favmer in tho holo.
If cotton farmers don't come together
and agree upon terms as to how much
we uro willing to pay for baudliog our
cotton until it is distributed among
consumers of cotton, then the ?niuo
old gang of speculators wilL continue
to do this job for .us and uamo their
own prico for it, and collect jnst about
all they may want for this job.
Who Is to Blame For It ?
If farmers do not como together in
the fur mers' organisations and try to
protect their own interest, in their own
way, then it is clear that all .that class
of farmers that refuse to organize is
the real obstacles in the way of build
iug np a strong combination of far
mers with sufficient strength to down
any and all combinations against our
common interests as farmers.
If von have joined in with the Far
mers1 Union and done your boot to up
hold our common interest in obtaining
profitable prices for our producto, then
yon' will feel good over this matter
whether you have done all wo wioh to
do or not, for there is great comfort in
knowing that yon have done your
That Chitase Boycott Hammer.
The cotton bear element is now cir
culating the news that ail American
spinners, that supply the heavy cotton
goods trade to Coma, are now turning
their attention to finer goods, and, in
consequence of this? are using only
about half the amount of cotton they
formerly used in this Chinese trade.
Conenmers and speculators are using
this fact to hammer down pricos wheo,
in reality? it makes little or no differ
ence whether England or America
makes the cloth for the Chinese trade;
in either case American cotton will
have to be considered in this thing
jost the same. Really, we want some
of onr smart cotton sien to tell us the
difference about who makes the cotton
goods i? onr American cotton has to
e considered in the supply of the raw
material for this Chinese shirt. Now?
if these cotton beare will show us that
these Chinamen aro to reduce the
length oz tht-ir pHfrt? or go without
common aa, then there might bes?me
logical reason for producers to become
alarmed, bat BO long as Chinese babies
and o thora are bora naked this Ameri
can cotton will have to be considered
aa constituting about eight-tenths of
the raw material that goes into their
elotbiug, and we are in doubt aa to
whether it makes very much differ
ence BB to who makes the cloth.

S Dear ?ir: Is "Tss S??w" some time
ago I noticed where eotue one had or
iginated a variety of cow pea so that
it had the deniable quality of giving
a large yield of peas, at the same time
did not abed ita leaves. Will yon be
kind enough to ask if he will not pub
lish in your "Farmers' Union Bureau"
how he developed thia pea, GO that
others may do likewise? The reason I
nek thia i? boco use the wi ter of the ar
ticle in question stated at the tim? that
ho had no seed for sale.

kbow Borne thia g of the hy brid peas
that do not shed their leaves. He or
any one can have jost each a peo on

from this patch and plant again. In

be as hard as the little iron? a nd tho
little Iron. I can assure yen; will not
be any softer than when you first be
