and even 'for their ornaments. And
before the landing of the whites in
America thb Indians made with their

utensils, baskets, pottery and objects
of otnaments for their persons and
for their tepees. Some of these things
are now wortlh their weight in gold
and are in great demand by those
who appreciate art and things artis
Perhaps the whites never assimilat
ed the artistic ifstinets of the savages
in the making of useful objects or
that the artistic ideas of the moro
civilized race found expression
through other mediums. At all events
the whites fell short of the Indian in

In tihe cotton states of the South
the cotton was carded, bein. aone by
hand. This was for the smnmer cloth
in. Wool was washed, carded, spun
and woven *into winter wearing ma
terial, also without tle aid of machin
ery.' In those days the spinning wheel
and tihe old hand loom were objects
of use and not .rnament. Hand made
carpets of ortestic design and superior
workmanship . were in . general
use, where the household were
wealthy enough to afford such a lux
ury. In the Textile Building of the
Arts and Crafts Village will be seen
this work and the fruits of the old
hand loom. Carpets, rugs, blankets,
shawls, lindseys, woolseys, towels,
cottonades and numerous other arti
cles made fr6nm cotton and wool will
he lade the oldlen way at the James
town Exposition. The carding room,
he spinning room, the weaving room
and( the dye honse will all lie as they
were in centuries gone liy.

common use in the oldl colonial days.
The Copper, Silver and Wood1

The Truckling Farmer.
This disgraceful habit of farmers
truckling and catering around after
others to attend to the farmer'' own
business is as old as the hills and as
shimeful as it is old. If the farming
class were weak in inumbers, wealth
and their natural advantages, there
might be some excuse for farmers to
be everlasting truckling around after
some other set of men to help them.
But what is the real status of the
wealth. natural gifts of the farmers,
calling. and his dormant numerical
power? Go to the statistical record
and you will see that the farmers of
our country not only outilniber all
others in his voting powers, but lie
also has in his farming business about
four times the amount of wealth that
there is engaged in all our manufac
turing interest combined!
It always did make Inc lot in the
collar to see a great giant at school
play pleading to the small boy to give
him room %when his natural gifts were
of more powei-properly used-than
two small boys.
But for the hick of proper training
pluck and energy these giants are like
the farmers class-for the lack of
training they (14) not know how to use
their natural gift,s of power.
Pricing Your Own Wares.
Farmers know too much about how
to roduce large crops of cotton a11
too little about how toI get a prmice for
their nmoney er'op after it is made.
What dhes it profit or bienefit the far
mcir to make a fine crop if some other
crowd1 gets all the profits?
This teaching of a one-sided1 edluea
ion of-thle farmer is all wrong; most
anmy conmmon elod hopper or' free neg
ro can make a profitable crop of
cotton, but' it takes entirely a differ
('nt management to plaice this cotton
upon01 the market in a way so As turn
these priofits into the pockets of the
prIoducer instead1 of thme coffers of
those who toil niot but who does know
how .to spin the pr'ofit out of the far
mer's' hands into their own.
Most any farmer's son knows mor'e
about gathering chestniuts than to go
up the tree and shake them down uin
lees lie has a partner on the ground
to keep the~ hogs from gathering in
the products of his labor.
- W)e repeat again her'e, that our far
mer's, unorganized, iindepenilently and
alone, can produce a good crop of cot
tonl, but it takes the coinbined efforts
of thousands of cotton farmers to
make sur'e-of a good1 price for that
Tf other folks were to allow you as
far'mers to pr'ice all you buy and prlice
all you sell, teo, how long would it
take the farmers to'even up things in
a way that would cause the howling
to come up from the other side? That
is the very way that the other crowds
have-been doinig up the So'uthern far

Farmer's' Union is now up against
this unfair wvay of dealing. We are

'Tliere is no new departure in thi
prolmsition of the Farmers' Unior
This same practice.has been in use b;
cot(t4,n speculators and ot.her combilina
tions for many years.
Tlie remedy is here: Instead of far
mers cdoerring with buyers of cotto1
about ixing the price for cotton, th
growers of cotton should confer wilt
each theer. The growers of cottoi
cannot expect of the buyers to get. an
other news about crops or tie cottoi
market excepting tliat news that is i
his favor which will always bear dow1
the market news.
Manufacturers do not go to the fi
mer (who is the consumer of his food
to ask him to help him get a bette
price for his goods. Then who oi
carti should the farmer go to the con
sumer or the buyers of, cotton to ge
himl to price tle farmer's products
Farmers, quit acting the fool and pu
up your own warehouses, bulk you
cotton in your own houses, set you
own figures on your stuff, make you
cotton warehouses your clearing houF
es and the trade will come to you.

We would nout have our readers
mnisundi(erstandl (hn position or opinio
on this stuant ing plan. Mr. Willian
son, we think, has done a good thin
for the farming interest of the whol
South by calling ouri attention to i
stutnting plan in the cultivation
coin. Hei has p)ut the progressive fai
mier to thinking along this line (
retarding the growth of stalk, the0 let
valuable p)art of our crops, and ii
creasing the grain or fruiting. WV
farmers have a great deal to lear
along this line. We have known year
ago that the best fall ,eabbage wer
grown by retarin(img the growth in th
earlier stage; that is, transplant thi
plants in July or August aiid nw
wvork them out until first of Septen
her, when a good application-oif ferti

very late when i4ropitious seasom
and good cultivation have produce<
aistoniishinig good crop)s, ev'en at thi

For maniy years wec have stopped
what we think waste of money by ap
plying amoniat ed commercial fertihi

We are satisfied that usnally aboui

Therefore, we believe more in 1at<
or side application of fertilizers that
we do' in the retarding or stunting og
the stalk growth. But, we do not sa;
that we are sure of this without w<
