Depends Upon the Farmers.
The Manufacturers' Record says
that "the general trend of business
development today is more pronounc
edly in favor of the south than ever
before. In every direction. there are
signs of advancement." Further the
Manufacturers' Record says:
"The big profits on two or three
vears' cotton crop sold at high prices
brought such financial ztrength to
the farmers as to enable them to hold
this crop back from the market to
the despair of the bears, and the iron
interests, developed by new and mod
ern improvements and by the build
ing (f new furnances and stvel wo)rks.
are in shape to enjoy the present
prosperity in that trade and to justify
further developments .n a very large
scale. Thus the sot:h enters this
period of industrial actiity in a tar
better shape than before, and in the
next five years we shall see more real
wealth created there and a greater
volume of business than in the last,
ten years. We shall now do in five
years much more than we have done
in the past ten. That is the assured
progress ahead of the south."
The picture is pleasing. Will the
big profits on the coming year's cot
ton crop bring greater financial
strength to the farmers of the south?
The answer depends upon the far
mers. Will they stand by the move
ment to reduce the cotton acreage?
The answer to this qtiestion will de
termine the answer to the other.

President R. T. C. Hunter, of the
county association of cotton grow
ers, has called a mass meeting of the
farmers and business men, to be held
in the court house on next Saturday,
March 18. It is very earnestly de
sired that every farmer and business
man in the county who can do so
shall attend. The agitation for a re
duction in acreage has been general
throughout the south and organiza
tions with that end in view have been
perfected in every cotton state. All
that is necessary now is for the far
mers to stand by their organization,
to aid it in every way possible, and to
reduce the acreage. WVe hope to see
