porative Warbhouses on the Very
bout one year ago our' Farmers'
ion Bureau' was requested to get up
simple plan for farmers' ware
uses, which was published in many
ewspapers, and in addition we had a
ouble edition held in stock in circu
ar form for free distribution to all
Hppliants that would enclose a two
cent stamp for same. But as our
printed circulars describing this cheap
plan of co-operative warehouse has
been exhausted we appeal to the
patriotism of every paper in- the
south to publish this cheap plan for
Farmers' Warehouses and thus ex
tend a hand in perfecting a system of
V business methods of marketing the
south's great money crop that is
bound to steady prices and retain
the profits in cotton production for
the welfare of the south. The com
mendable features of this plan is that
it enables every farmer to become a
stockholder by allowing them to in
vest their labor (at a leisure time)
and material in lieu of cash. If far
mers care to do so there are enough
levelheaded business men everywhere
to put up enough cash for cement and
other bought stuff which will make
it practical and easy for farmers to
get together and turn a lot of their
idle time of themselves, teams and
material into a probitable investment
that will give cotton growers protec
tion against the inscrupulous cotton
bear and speculative elejent that are
at it all the while robbing the south
of its wealth while we are at work
We here give extracts from one of
many lebters to our Bureau that give
some idea of the widespread move
ment in building these small co-opera
tive wareh'ouses that are doing good
in teaching farmers the value of con
cert action in actual labor as well as
bulking their materials for their mu
tual benefit, -not only in building
their warehouses, but these small
warehouses in turn will unite their
strength as pennies make dimes and
dimes .make dollars,
Really wve believe that the lasting
benefits from this small warehouse
liuiness-extending as It does to the
smallest farmer-the lessons of the
value of practical cooperation and
business lessons that he would -ntver
got if he waited for money to invest
in larger warehouses.
Blackman, Fin., May 8, 1907.
Mr. J. C. Stribling: "Seeing an
a1ticle from you in the Cultivator in
1906 about a- eheap plan of ware
house, pronmpts me to make some in
quiry. We will organize a state Un
ion here in July. We want to build a
warehouse or two this summer and
will appreciate any information we
can get if you can give us a plan thrat
we can do our owvn work and not pay
out very much money ou'tside of some

in this there is room for all to en
ter in. The small cotton grower, makl
ing only a few bales, can go in and
add -his might along with the fellow
that makes twenty--five or a hundred
bales. As it takes material, labor
and money, let all con tribu'te to this
thing a kind of tax in kind way and
put up warehouses all along the line.
Farmers' Ulnion Cotton Warehouse
Plans-Olay Floor, Hollow Qement
The followi'ng is, goten up upon
the very simplest and cheapest plans
for the use of co-operative Unions.
*TJis plan is for one section, to

tory,) well ditched and drained all
round, good clay floor - well beaten
As the cost of material in founda
tions varies in different places our
estimate for cement walls ate taken
from abourt the floor line.
Parapet Wvall may be .required by
insurance companies where more than
one section, are -put up together, but
these walls above the roof are of no
benefit in the way of protection from
fire on a sine sdetion cotton ware
Estimates given here are for 10
inch hollow. block, .for ifoundations
and R-insh 'block for. walls, and. all
other m tpriatl that' farmers do not
usually have on their farms.
All labbr, sand for cemenit blocks
and the nine 10-inch round posts to
rest girders on. through the middle
of -the room, are to be supplied by
This style of cotton warehouse
will hold about 400 bales to each sec
tion. Two round poles, 10. inches in
diameter, should -be placed under each
row of bales to prevent capillery at
traction of moisture there at any
Remember this, ethat if lower ends
of bales are wet or moist when stor
ed, that in all cases this lower end
will be damaged more or,less, it mat

Thus it is made plain to all Union
men th'at by clubbing together they
may put up the cash $370.00 for the
bought material and do all the work,
making the cement blocks and put
t/ing ap their own warehouses with
'their own labor by the cooperative
plan, and have -their warehouses
ready for this crop, if they will go at
it when through working crops.
For less money than it takes to
pay ifor a. good pair of mules farm

way and put up their own fortifica

to come this fall to force cotton far

prices that Ihave ailways made all'
others rich that handled cotton ex
cepting the men who t(lil mnost of all
to produce this cotton.
Tf this warehouse movement among
cotton growers progresses in gain
ing strength and confidence among
cotton .producers as lime passes, as it
is now doin, we look for several
thllous.nd of tliese co-operative ware
houses to be put up this ummer.
When cotton producers get a great
chain of these. warehouses linked to
gether in all the cotton slates in
honided form and pr'oduIce .their ownI~'
farm supplies, this concert of act ion
in a business w~ay wvill place thisj
whole eottoni proposition upon firm

to every inudnst ry in tihe sout.
