growers have all made their bills
payable which forces moie cotton i4
upon the market than spinners care a
to take and then the game of cotton i
bear is played for all it is worth, u
and away goes all the profits that tY
the simple farmer has labored hard s(
to win for a long year's toil. r
The remedy: Distribute payments SJ
I of your bills over at least four a
months by paying one third in No- ?
vember, one third in January and s
the balance in March. This distri- s
bufion will relieve the rush of work
and take away the *necessity of
dumping so much cotton on the T
market during October, November a
and December. This will give more C
time for sowing small grain and fall
ploughing and remove the opportun
ity for New York's panic riddan
money market to control, by giving Ii
cotton farmers time to warehouse c
their cotton and defend their posi- r
tions for demanding profitable pri- s
ces by the use of their own cotton s
for collateral for money. 1
Facing the Firing Line of the Farm- t
Doing one's duty as a committee
man on the good of the order is any
thing else but a pleasant position at
times. It is a pleasure of course to
gather in information that will bring
money profits to the members or con
tribute to the general well-fare of
the union when this can be done
without bringing some officer or
member of the unioa to a halt, that
has stepped over the firring line
without giving the pass word or
counter sign, which is equity and
justice to all. Each Iember his pri
vileges and place, so each officer is
a ruler in his sphere, each is sub
ject to limitation. The range of
each officer's power is prescribed by
the constitution, yet witthin that
range each is most emphatically a
ruler. But when an officer of the
union over steps the firing line and
is becoming a transgresser by intrud
ing upon the fun'ctions of another
brother's office, then and' there %it
becomes the unpleasant duty of the
one who is facing the firing line to
halt the brother and demand the
counter sign or turn him back.
Just so sure' as you step upon a
snake's tail and he will turn his
mouth upon you, just so sure as you
call one of your topheavy meinbers g
to a halt he will also turn loose his U
mouth upon the man that does it.
This is the place where many cow-.
ardly members waver and faii to do u
their duty. instead of coming right
out. with tihe plain truth and honest
plain talk, they seem to think it pru- I
dent to go whispering around the c
truth in a kind of speak easy fasha b
ion for fear of losing the friendship 1,
of this fellow or injuring the union. t
Now if telling . the plain truth v
turns a false ,fi-iend into an open
'enemy or does harm to an organiza- e
