Farmers' Union Cotton Warehouse Plans
Clay Floor, Kollow Cernea*. Block Walls.
The following is gotten np upon the
very simplest and cheapest plans for
the nie of co-operative Unions.
This plan is for one seotion, to which
may be added as many more sections
at ames as may be required to accom
modate the needs of the Union.
Walls 100 feet long; 12 feet tall at
high end, 8 feet tall at lowex end;
space between walls,60 feet. Excava
tions should he dug out to firm ground
or clay (if in a clay territory,) well
ditched and drained all round, good
clay floor well beaten down.
Aa the cost of material in founda
tions varies in different places our es
timate for cement walla aro taken
from about the floor line.
Parapet wall may be required by in
surance companies where more than
one section are pnt np together, but
these walls above the roof are of no
benefit in the way of protection from
fire on a one section cotton ware
Estimates given here ore for 10-inch
hollow block for foundations and
S-iuch block for walls, and all other
material '.hat farmers do not usually
have on their farms.
A!! labor, sand for cement blocks
sad the nine 10-inch round posts to
rest girders on through the middle of
the room, are to be aopplied by the
This style of cotton warehouse will
hold about 400 bales to each section.
Two round poles, 10 inches in diame
ter, should be placed under each row
of bales to prevest eapi?ery attraction
of moisture there at any time.
Remember this, that if lower ends
of bales are wet or moist when stored.
that in all eases this lower end will be
damaged more or less, it matters not
what kind oi AO?T it rests vu.
MATERIAL FOR ONE SECTION.
25 barrels Portland Cement, 100 cubit
yards of sand, 18 girders 8x12x20. 208
rafters 2x5x18, 4 sills 4x0x25-these
may be round ; around post 10 inches
diameter, 4 perlines 2x4x25, 50 plank
1x12x8,51 Btrnpslx4x8. 50plank 1x12x12,
51 straps 1x4x12, 5,000 te ct sheeting.
Total amount sawed lumber 11,000
At $1.50 per 100 feot.$105 10
25 barrels cement at $1.80. 45 00
Nails estimated. 3 80
51 squares V crimp iron roofing
at $2.50 per squaro. 127 50
One two-hand Hollow Block ce
ment machine. 75 00
Estimated freight on machine.. 4 00
Total cost of bought material.$420 40
This cement machine may be
sold for 950 when throng.",
with-credit..$ 50 00
Net cost of bought material....f870 40
. Thus it is made plain to all Union
men that by clubbing together they
may put up the cash $870.00 for the
bought material and do all the work,
making the cement blocks and putting
up their pwn warehouses with their
own labor by the co-oporntivo p'en,
and have their warehouses ready for
this crop, if they will go at it when
through working crops. -
For leso money than it takes to pay
for a good pair of mules farmers may
go to work in a neighborly way and
put np their own fortifications now and
get well entrenched ready for tho fight
ing that is sure to come this fall to
foreo cotton farmers to turn Ioo?e their
cotton at prices that have nlwos , made
all others rich that handled cotton ex
cepting tho men who toil most of alKo
produce this cotton.
If this warehouse movement among
cotton growers pro greases in gaining
strength and confidence among cotton
producers as time passes, as it is now
doing, we look for several thousand of
these co-operative warehouses to be
put up thin summer.
When cotton producers get a great
cbr.in of these warehouses linked to
gether in all the cotton States in bond
ed form and produce their own farm
supplies, this concert of action in a
business way will place this whole cot
ton proposition upon a firm foundation
and insure continued prosperity, not
only to cotton growers, but lt will also
bring prosperity to every industry in
There is nbthlng new in this art of
making artificial ssone or cement
blocks by properly mixing sand and
cement. This art is about as old as
the country. But the recent improve
mente in.the manufacturing and con
sequent cheapening of the cost of ce
ment and the machinery for forming
these hollow blockB hos reduced the
cost of this building material to snob
an extent that it now look o like we aro
into what might be called the cement
or concrete age.
These small hand power machines,
. weighing from 400 pounds up and cost
ing from $50.00 np," may be sot up at
any convenient place, and by follow
ing the instructions sent out with these
machines most ?ny intelligent man can
make these hollow blocks and put up
these warehouse walls.
