Meeting at Fair Grounds Wednesday,
at Twelve O'Clock.
A mass meeting of all the farmers
present, whether they are members
of the Farmers' Union or not, will be
held at the Fair Grounds on next
Wednesday, November 15, at twelve
o'clock. This meeting will be heid
for the purpose of giving each and
every farmer an , opportuni\\y to
prove his faith by his works. At the
recent Columbia meeting it was de
cided to have blanks sent all over the
State, and get the farmers to sign
them, promising to hold a certain
number of bales so long a. time, and
at the same time to reduce their
acreage 60 per cent, next year.
The necessary papers have been
mailed to the President of the Far
mers' Union and the Clerk of Court.
Invitations have been sent out for
speakers, and it will be a fine oppor
tunity for the farmers present to en
dorse the movement now on foot and
to save the remainder of this crop for
better prices. Remember the fight
that was won by the farmers of this
count}' twenty years ago against the
Jute trust, and make an effort to bet
ter the present deplorable condition.

nish accommodations to Fair visitors.
Let every home which can possibly
take one or more people for lodging
at night inform us at once, with rate
they charge. In case any meals can

meals and rate. This is a very im

earliest possible moment."
