We notiee that the market quotes
cotton seed oil as being worth from
28 1-2 to 30 cents per gallon, meat
$25 per ton, hulls $5 to $6 per ton,
while seed are selling at $13 per ton.
One year ago oil was selling at 20 to
22 cents per gallon, meal $23 per ton,
hl 1 5 to $ per ton.
Theie seems to be a niced of a mini
mum price on seed since the oil mills
are hying the seed .so far below their
value. Therefore, be it
Resolved. That we advise all Union
members to hold their seed for not
less than $20 per ton, and then make
exchange of their seed for mcal to be
used in mixing their fertilizers.

Last year, at the request of Ander-.

ducted a co-operative farm expert

value of ground cotton seed as a
manure under cotton and corn which
showed that cotton seed under corn
on thin land was worth net about 98
cents and $1.24 under cotton Per hun.

CHAPIN ADVISED TO LEAVE.
Northern Woman Assaulted by Isaac
.Knight in Aiken County, Acting
onAdvice of Friends, Leaves
the Town and Returns
Aiken, October 29.-Mrs. E. S.
Chapin has been waited upon by two I
prominent Aiken gentlemen and ad
vised to leave the city. Mrs. Chapin
is the person upon whom the nere, 9
Isaac Knight, committed crimnal as
sault, and for whom she signed a
petition for a commutation of sen
tence to life mprisonment.
';'ome time ago Mrs. Chapin moved
into the city and has been stopping at I
Mrs. McCullough's, next to the post
oflice. She had announced her inten
tim of leaving tIhe city some time in
tIhe near future, but, after conversing
wit h the gentlemen who called upon
her, she took their advice and left
here for New York at once. The gen- 1
tlemen who called upon Mrs. Chapin
wvere friends of hers and were re
rjuestedl to do so by a number of gen
tlemen, who, after hearing that she ~
had petitioned the Governor to save
the life of heri assailant, thought she
hmad outlived her usefulness in the
community, and that it would be bestt
for her and for the community that
she should leave.
The action of the gentlemen who
called upon her was prompted by the
act ion of Mrs. Chapin in petitioning
Governor Hleywarid to commnut e the
sentence of the negro who assaulted
her more than anything else.
