WHITMIRE NOT IN WOODS.
Live and Progressive City-Good
Graded Schood-Churches, Bank
and Cotton Mill.
Er. Editor: I noticed an article
ur pal)er some time ago over the
ul of H. P. Ducket, yhich does
hitmire a great injustice. Whit
ire is not in the woods as . Mr.
iteket would have you to believe.
Whitmire has a fine up-to-date cot
ton mill, bank, graded school and
best of all, good churches. -Whit
mire is up-to-date iln every respect
and no town of its age can excel
Witmire for growth and business.
*"While I am a new comer to the city,
not much acquainted with the to
pography of the country wvould say
that Whitmire would make an ideal
county site that any county would be
proud of. To compare Whitmire
vith a still born town, say like May
binton, which can snot be found on
the may is an outrage. Who, is Mr.
. P. Ducket? I have made diligent
quiry. Mr. John Ducket and his
ii who run a drug store at this
ace\ are the only persons by the
ame that can he found. Why does
r. Ducket give his full names as
any people have assured me that
such man lives i'n the town or
nptry. Whitmire is a full coml
iical town and no doubt excels
i'aiy other places with twice its
j ,opulhation. But if many more such

We are not going to try to tell you
any big sight more about how to make
cotton. You already imake more cot
ton than you have sense to sell right,
that's tihe reason why you are so
darned poor and the other fellow that
knows so miuch about. how to buy cot
ton is so all fired rich.

The Only Way to Succeed.
Wihen you leave out from home to
attend a Farmers' Union meeting
pull off that old selfish Cloak of
yours and hang it on the gate post
until you return from the meeting.
Tle distinctive difference in a un
ion or co-operative meeting and your
self is this, whenl you join in witil
your neighbor to do anything for the
good of all, your whole body and
soul is all built into the big man l!
That is, you are a mere part of what
it took to make this giant man, who
is so powerful that little selfish fel
lows and other gaints of smaller
breeds and of less import must get
out of your way. These great giants
that grow on the farms are popping
up all over the south very fast and
growing big and fast like corn on
rich soil after a good shower in June.
