they are not only light draft, buv alto exceedingly durable

Frightful Lots ia Fertilizers.
We aie in position, wo think, to prove
to the satisfaction of most any reasona
ble intelligent farmer that Sooth Caro
lina cotton farmers this year have lost
enough money ia ammonia ted fertili
sera to build at least one good ware
Jboase in each cotton county of the
State: Perhaps ninety per cent of
those that use ammoniated fertilisers
put this ammonia ted fertilisers in the
ground before tbs . seed is planted.
And ?et. we are told by the chemist
that the most valuable constituents in
these ammonlated fertilizers are solu
ble in water, and it they are not solu
ble ia water that they are no good.
Afler the ten days of heavy rains we
badin June there ia cot enough of this
ammonia left in tho soil to make cotton
enough for a monkey jacket.
We want a new cultivator with a
fertHSaer distributor to put out these
very sciuble fertilisers along on the
ground ahead Cf the cultivator , and
stir thu nitrate of soda and other am .
caonist?u goodB- in the soil after the
roots are there to feed upon this vola-,
tilo food before it is leached ont or
evaporated. We muss make at least
two applications of these fertilisers
after the roots ot the crops are there to
feed upon this quick acting fertiliser.
Ufge Crops Cause Disaster?
In India, China and other countries
the people starve because Cf tbeir f ail
ure to make good crops! In our cotton
growing States we bava panics and
starvation when we make our largest
orena of cotton-onr great steple crop.
0o you know of any other agricul
tural country on earth that starve od
account of its abundant harvest? Do
?oil know vf any of onr manufacturing
iduatnesjof g&?that starve out on
aoconn| ?f ever-proaaet?onf No! They
know snore , about their busmess than
to al low their ancoasefnl; production
to be the means of their downfall !
Why can't cotton farmers manage
their affaira like tho ^manufacturers do
theirs? B?iMoss tho farmer na? " rs
?oaea to organise and take their own
buaineas under their own control i
That in ailthero is of this affair I m
What is tho remedy for disastrous
over-production? In either case of
over-production of crops or manufac
tured c roducte there io oat one remedy
-producers ; must : take care of their
own surplus products or other men of
mord basiness thought and foresight
mUt dcW this ibr~theh? own benefit,
which will .always work out the inevi
tabie ruin of the producers and taten
IDS Pl'O?tS t? the Iinnnt^^-- ""j,
apply the: business tact" that the pro
ducers have failed to do for their own
farmer, the connumera of their gooda,
and nek tho farmer what ho Trill give him
for his nur pinn, nu d lina! ly tell the farm
er in eo many ?ords: "See horst now, wo
men did not make our goode to eat or
?ear we made theee things for you far
mers, and if yon don't need them you
must take this stuff off onr hands at
Nol organized manufacturera do not
act a fool like that! But cotton far
mers have been doing that kind of
foolish business for forty years.
When our production threatens di Gan
ter to manufacturers they simply call a
meeting through their organization?
of their particular interest, take an
inventory ot all their surplua producta
on hand and reduce their production
pro rata among themselves until the
demand catches up with thoir surplus
stock and output.
lt the manufacturer has too much
cf bis working capital locked up in
surplus products in well insured ware*
houses he can pot up bis surplus pro
ducts? s collateral for money to carry
on bis business with instead of dump
ing hit products upon the market at
minons prices in order to repeat the
suicida! performance again in produc
ing more surplus, the weight of which
is acre to emoh the life out of bio busi
.That cuicldal process is the very
essence of tho cause of the disastroua
results of an over-production of our
reat money crop, cotton, in the
outbt For tho Jack of a systematic
business organization like the Far
mers Union to control the production
and the marketing of onr cotton, we
have heretofore undertook to protect
our interest singlehanded against a
well organized body of businessmen.
Every cotton producer bes been fight
ing bia own interest by trying to take
care of himself and let the devil
catch the hindmost man, and the re
sult baa been that the devil usually
gets the whole crowd of foolish, unor
ganized cotton growers.

William J. Bryan Would Accept.
Washington, July 7.--Former T"?Hed
Staten Senator James K. Jones, or .'\x
lcaneas, formerly chairman of the Na
tional Democratic Committee when
W. J. Bryan made his race for presi
dent in 1890 and 1000, has received a
letter from Mr. Bryan in which tho
latter announces that ide will accept
the nomination for president for tho
third timo if tendered to him. Tao
lotter is dated Stockholm, Juno 18, and
is aa follows:
"I have been watching political de
velopmenta and noted wita gratifica
tion the vindication of Democratic
principles. 1 shall do nothing to se
cure another nomination and do not
want it unless conditions seem to de
mand it. I may add I enjoy the free
dom of privato life and feel I can do
some good without holding any office.
There are, however, certain reforma
which I wonld like very much to see
accomplished, and to assist in the ac
complishment of these reforma I am
willing to become the party'o candi
date again, ii when the time foi the
nomination arriv?e the advocates of
reform are in control of the party and
I think my candidacy will give tho
beat assurance of victory, if some
one else seems more available, I will
be even better pleased. I need not as
sure yon I am more interested in aeeing
onr principlea triomphant than in the
personal of the ticket. The country
needs to have Jeffersonian Democracy
applied to every department of the
government. State ana nation and I in
tend to help make this application.
