During the recent meeting of oi
State ,-?xccutive committee on Fel
ruary 5th., our committee was agre
ably'surprised to receive a call fro
a gentleman from Europe who
connected with prominent cottc
manufacturers of that country wl
desired a conference with our Sta

cotton directly from our organizatic
for his cotton manufacturing ass
ciates and ship direct from the pr
<ducers to the spinners of cotton i
In 'his discussion of his propositi
and the importance of better care
ginning, baling and grading of oi
cotton our committee was favorab
impressed with the thorough kiun
ledge of the classification and us
made of different grades and who
to place the different, grades as s
forth by this gentleman, who it seen
is here for business and lias bean c
ueated in his \V*ork, having had mai
years experience in practical woi
for European spinners. But as tl
committee had assembled for the pu

Well, boys, here we are up and
