Taking a Hand in a Losing Game.
That is the very thing most all men
do who undertake to raise cotton tc
buy everything he needs with his cot
on money. Now if every man, of the
rge majority of growers of cotton

t the larger per cent of cotton
oduced by negroes and enslaved
people, who are subjected to all
ner of schemes and shrewd trans
ions of the well trained and organ
ed cotton handling and cotton trad
g element, who by concert of action

ton until it is all out of the hands of
the producer, at prices to suit the
traders and consumers of cotton ir
respective of profits or cost of produc

stress cotton, which composes at
times the larger part of the crop
worth billions-you may say if, at the
beginning of the season, at least, ab
solutely in the hands of the ignorant
class of producers and cotton bears.
And all that class of-cotton growers
who don't grow food crops are forced
to take prices made by the reckless
element in order to fill hungry bellies.
The Independent Farmer.
How beautiful the thought, how
pleasant the anticipation, how glow
ing are the hospitable invitations of
this glorious Southland of ours to
come and be an independent farmer.
What a commentary upon the intelli
gence, what a reflection upcn our gen
eral character to ive in-a land "flow
ing with milk and honey" and then
buying the milk and the honey too.
Our state and national farm demon
stration men have proven by reputable
;witness that corn has 'been grown at
a cost of from 15 to 35 cents per bush
el and we buy millions of bushels at
75 cents to $1.00 per bushel.
Our farm demonstration workers
aad individuals, too-have proven that
we can -produce pork at a cost of. 3 to
6 cents per pound, and millions of dol
lars are spent' every year for pork at
12 1-2 cents to 20 cents per pound, and
there is scarcely any article of food
crops that we buy but what can be
grown at home with equal profit.
Why this deplorable state of affairs
among our "all-cotton farmers?" At
first thought one would naturally con
clude that our experimenters are the
biggest set of liars on earth or our
"all-cott.on farmers" are the biggest
set'o,f fools on earth-oue or the other.
But neither of these conclusions are
correct solutions of the problem. The
plain facts are that many all-cotton
farmers are aware of these truths, but
they are so firmly chained downi to a
system and habit of growing cotton
crops on credit, that they have not the
manhood or knowledge how to break
the prison~ chains of the credit and cot
ton king and be free men by growing
'their own supplies at home.
Farmer's Educational and Co-opera
tive Union is the name of our only
* State-wide farmers' organization, and
the educational feature comes first in
our efforts, for the reason that if we
can teach our "all-cotton farmers'
how to break loose these prison chains
of growing stress or credit cotton by
proper rotation of crops, that the vic
tory for profitabie prices for cotton
