TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 21, 1905.
State Superintendent of Education
0. -B. Martin has designated Decem
ber 15, as Library Day for the pub
lic schools that more libraries under
the Aull act may be established.
Superintendent Martin requests that
schools that have not already secured
a library adop -some form of public
entertainment to secure funds for
this purpose. After December 31, the
appropriaiton made by the legislature
for this year will no longer be -avail
able. This in an important matter and
we urge our teachers to 'ake ajdvan
tage of the opportunity offered.
Unquestionably the cotton growers
of the south through their different
organizations have -won a signal vic
tory in the advance of the price of
Their staple product. Now let those
who have been lukewarm or stood
aloof entirely from any association
Immediately become members -thereby
enlarging and strengthening the va
rious associations, and we may expect
even greater results. Let the farmers
inform themselves smash the specu
lators and their schemes, put their
corton under shelter off the ground,
hold to it like grim death, reduce their
&creagc next year, diversify their
crops, make all the manure possile,
practice economy, and by the fall of
1907, the bottom rail will be on top.
k The farmers today are in better con
-dition than they have been for years
tumbers are making deposits in banks
who never made -any before, many
others, are buying land and all around
are evidences of prosperity and good
rVery few of our farmers sold their
cotton when the price reached eleven
cents. Mr. :H'arvie Jordan 'has come
out in a letter and aidvisei the 'hold
ing of cotton till it reaches fifteen
cents. ~Loyalty to the association
anay require obedience to its man
dartes, but whnat of business judgment
in this new demand?.
We call especial attention to the
notice of Mr. R. T. C. Hunter, presi
Sdent of the County Cotton association,
for Iholding meetings in the various
'school di'stricts. to elect officers and
.delegates. We urge all interested
-"'and where is the cotton grower that
&should not 'be interested?-to attend
these meetings and :rhus perfect the
Sorganization of the association
Throughout the county.
Will somebody please tell us why
the price of cotton has gone down?
Is there any 'more cotton now than
there was a week ago, when the price
.was 11 cents? I-s the demand any
less? Is the supply of cotton goods
any greater? Will somebody please
tell 'us why the price of the south's
staple crop will decline as much as 5
per cent in forty-eight hours. Is
there any legitimate cause for it?
-No, there is not any more cotton,'but
you -know the selling and buying of
cotton goes on without t:here being
dany of the- real stuff delivered. That
is considered legitimate.
