Professor J. M. Johnson, of the

Prof. Jo'hnson fin'es that each

meal the farmer should get at least a
$18 for his seed, which amounts to s
$5 per ton loss to the farmer on each
ton that lie sells for $13, or a loss of a
over twenty-five million dollars on
the whole crop of the South.
This loss oi seed in one seasoi
would put upl) enough warehouses to
take care of half the cotton crop of
the whole South.
Our Farmers' Union experiments r
last year proved that ground cotton
seed paid nearly $25 per tonil under
cotton and $19 per tonil under corn.
Farmers don't sell your seed for
six or eight dollars per ton less than
the seed is worth for fertilizer. Far
mers must look more n'fter the busi
ness side of their farming for their
own interest and quit taking the other
man's figil'es on everything.
Cotton speculators and tile mills
will soon get all the weak cotton out
of tihe hands of tile unlorgalized Cot
-tonl growers. When these conditions
prevail the farmier cotton hear become
i bull und works right into the hand
of the organlized cottoll famer, who
has managed to hold his cotton oft
the glutted market.
Now the Farmers' Union lad much
rather have the supply men to join
in with them and take care of this
weaker class -of cotton growers and
keep this profit in our own county
where it will lelp everybody. But, it
our own people will work with us, we
will, of course, take any help that we
can get without committing ourselvem
with the speculative element.
There is not one interest in the
whole South that is not benefitted

prices for their cotton. When there
is plenty of money afloat every one

Tribute from Old Comrade.
A. J. Livingston was born in what
was known as the Dutch Fork on the
22nd of October just sixty-three years
ago. He lost his parents early in life
and was bound to an old gentleman
by the~ name of Henry Werts. He
had ser'ved his time out about the
commencement of the wvar. He volun
