Important Demonstrations in Bal

A dispatch, .from Washington says
cotton by an improvement in the
an effort to secure higher prices for
methods of handling, grading and
marketing the crop is to be made by
toe government this year in co-oper

The plan, is designed to bring to
the cotton raisers the full benefit of
the increase in value that can be se
cured by a careful grading of the
crop lo correspond wifh tie paw gov
ernment standards. These stand

cotton Exchanges for B9l9e time and
are recognized as official standards
of the trade,
Officials of tbe agriculture depart
perts will use the most approved
methods of grading, handling, bail
ing and selling and will make accu
rate returns on ea.ch operation for
the benefit of the cotton growers.
It is believed that if the cotton
xaisers can be trained to grade the
crop carefully in its initial handling,
Its value Can be greatly increased by
putting the cotton into grades that,
command higher prices. Efforts
are being made to induce farmers'
associations and local bodies to pur
chase sets of the government's stan
dards for the use in preparing the
cotton for the market.
The price of the standards has
been reduced from $35 to $30 for
the benefit of farmers' associations
and the department- is recomending
that a "half series" be purchased
which will give farmers a facility to
grade their cotton. It is believed
cotton raisers of the south will bene

Orangeburg Times and Democrat is

the new mayor of Orangeburg that
he would put the loafers out of busi

gets rid of the loafers, tell us and
we will apologize." Our cotemporary
