For good reasons National President
R. F. Duckworth, of the Farmers'
Union, has callen m?? the cotton price

Angust 2nd.- Said ar.eeting to be called
to commence in Texarkana, Arkansas,
Ctn of September.
Deceptive Growth of Cotton Stalk.
From every quarter comes reports
of the over growth of cotton stalks
which experte know that thia extraor
dinary large supply over production
of stalk has been made at the expense
of the fruiting poaibilities of the land.
Therefore the nattering show of large
stalks ia'some territories is very de
ceptive sud may lead many to over
estimate their crops. It is not stalks
with forms 12 inches apart that counts,
it io the thick set bolls from two to
three inches apart on medium stalks
that iudicstes a fine crop.
The Rallying Firmer.
We have before ns great stack? of
newspapers and letters from all over
every cotton State in the Sooth. A
glance over the news from the cotton
fields of the Sooth as written by the
real farmer himself, ia very encourag
ing, indeed, as to the determination of
farmers, to come tog? her and take
charge bf their own ai ire.
In our sister State, Georgia, we note
that they have now in the Farmers'
Union over 45,000 members and they
have jost began in earnest, and their
meetings already published numbers
for August. 72 different places. This
educational campaign of the Farmers1
Union is now oo in earnest in ali tbe
cotton States. These fermera have
gone into line all over the cotton terri
tory in. a systematic way that bids
fair to create aomething like a real
revolution in the management o? oar
whole cotton intereste.
From every State cornea the glorious
newe of large enthusiastic meetings
and the ; springing up of . Farmers'
cotton warehouses in all the cotton
States. The cotton farmers have
stopped digging in the fields for awhile
and are digging and throwing their
fortifications ready to defend their in
The cotton farmer has learned to
watch both the bunghole and tho
spicket of hts business. He no longer
continues to pour in the good stuff st

Un iou man of today has been educa
ted up to the point where be can un-(
derstand that there is two important
features of his busineos-one ia to pro
duce good crops and the Other ia to get
good prices for that good crop.
Where ia the good of producing
good crops, if the good crops bring to
the farmer actually less money and
profits than poor crops have ??nef
The unorganised cotton farmers have
for years been spreading before the
cotton tradesmen arid speculators of
the world a great and grand feast!
while cotton growers themselves have
uto od aro nod this festiva! table with
a gag in thniy e?s SHratus piaoed

Farmers, will yon ever learn tho
lesson, the ona most important lesson
before yea-that if ever there ia any
thing ??ne for the interest pf the far

help each other! Never go about

They Won't Slick.
A member of another Union while
talking to a member ot mir Union a
few days ago, said that ho wai afraid
that the farmera wouln't atick after

(Here, Brother Stribling, take a few
drops of thia camphor. Maybe that
will keep yon from "throwing up.")
No "they won't stick " Now wasu't
that fellow playing some aweet muaic,
after knowing that cotton went from
aoven cente to ten and a half io July,
of the same ycart And didn't he know
that our man knew that thia riae in
the price waa brough* about by the
farmera "a atickin' V
Say, Colonel, ?on't " ou think you
could cut the "doublt -?milla" after
that fellow's music, whe J you remem
ber that the Union met >t Texarkana,
last September and p\* the price of
eleven cente on their cotton and that
standing shoulder to shoulder they are
still getting that pricef Poor fellow,
we don't know what impression he
wanted to make on our man, bat the
kind that ho did make was that a mem
ber that ia always talking about the
other fellow not sticking, is always
the very first man to kick out of tue
harness when things don't go to ploase
Lim. Now, from what we cnn learn
thia fellow has listened so mach to the
man that don't belong to the Union,
til) be ie not only real bilious, bat be
ha? even caught, the "itch." So we
would advise him to stay away from
town, get oat of the Union for awhile,
and take bia dues and get him a box
of Fermera' Union Pills and take three
after each meal, thereby getting bis
atomach right. Also get a box of Far
mers' Union Salve and give himself a
good greasing and quit scratching so
much in company, and when he is well
of the above dise?aos let him go back
to his Union and try and be a man.

now if the other Unions don't want
oar price, just watch us stay by the
price they set, first, last and all the

THE POLICE ELECTION.
Big Batch of Candidates fer
Chief and Privates.
In a few davs the new Mayor and
.men will assume the reins of the
city government and immediately after
ward will take place the election of a
city attorney, city clerk, city engineer,
chief of police and police officers, to
ether with three drivers for the city
re apparatus. It is the general belief
that there will not be any contest over
the filling of these positions by the in
cumbents except possibly in the case of
the members of the police force. There
is always a lively scramble for posi
tions in this department, and if reports
are to be reliea on, the present election
will prove no exception to the general
It may be that the office of sergeants
will be created, thereby leaving
a ranking officer in charge in the
absence or the chief, as it is impossible
for this officer to be en duty day and
It ia presumed that Chief Murphy,
with the other members of the force,
will stand for re-election, as it is point
ed out by the admirers of the present
force that they are models of efficiency
and eternal vigilance, but this counts
for little in the eyes of the "outs"
who want to become "ins," and they,
too, have friends who are said to be
urging their claims with unwonted
vigor and earnestness. It is rumored
that strong pressure will be brought to
bear to encompass what is generally
termed a general Shaking up in the
police department with the view, as
urged by the advocates of this meas
ure, of combining physical, intellectual
md moral qualifications in the selection
?f these guardians of the peace. It is
suggested that the next year being a
convention year in the city, will bring
hundreds of visitors to Anderson, ana
that the average visitor forms many
impressions of a town's pride by the
class of officers that are oftenest in the
scrutiny of the public eye, and for this
reason, among others, they desire that
i police force be elected that will re
ject credit upon the city in the eyes of
visitors as well as to inspire pride on
the part of homo folks. Their argu
ment is a irood one. provided they will
sack it up ny a cjass'of aspirants who
will fill the 'requirements laid down foy
them as it is claimed by them they will
le. At any rate the fight promises to
warm up and be lively between now

The County Pair.
The prospects for a brillant aud suc

ting brighter every day. The splendid

of Anderson who have not kepi^ in close
touch with the movements o? this very
worthy organization. The premium
Hat is said to bo the most lib?ralas well
as the best assorted one ever of
fered before by any County Fair in the
South and one that offers the greatest
inducements for entries in every ch??s
and contest that has ever before been
held by this association. Enough en
tries have already been signed that will
insure some of the best and most ex
citing racing events ever given in the
State. The track has been put in ex
cellent condition and is now one of the
fastest courses in the country. Ample
provision has been made for the display
of agricultural, products and of indus
trial and of manufacturing interests,
and special attention will be given to
the proper display of these important
elements of the county's prosperity.
The poultry and stock exhibit will be
away above the average, too, for no
section of the South boasts facilities
superior to Anderson County's for poul
try and stock raising and those facili
ties are being rapidly developed to the
highest stage of perfection. The county
fair will be a matter of State pride and
