Farmers' Union Prices is 11 cents. f
If the 10 cent minimum for cotton 4
is considered a victory for the conser- i
vative element of the Cotton Associa- I
tion, then the whitewashing that i
Cheatham got at tilje same time must I
be a victory for the cotton gambling I
element ! -
If the prices for-labor, mules and
many other things that are in it too c
produce ctton now are double wihat I
it was when we got 5c. for cotton, I
there is no nire profit in loc. cotton c
now than there was back yonder when i
we got only 5c. for cotton. 6
If you can't, get profitable prices c
for your cotton, what is the use of i
selling it at or below cost and keep r
on climbing up a greased pole and ;
then sliding down again, busting the
bottom out of your constitution i
against the hard ground?

give you a1 profit for your cotton ! loc.

others who are dependent upon the t

tore your cotton in a warehouse and
ive your creditor the benefit of all
hat yo can get on your cotton. Be

rour creditors every time and then
