COTTON SEED AT 40 CENTS CAN CRUSH
OUT BIG PROFITS.
The Wail street hulls after
\year5 of feasting on the pastures
of the agricultural ilasses. re
ducing their lanuds to Sahara's,
and the farmers to serfs. are now
like sailors on a drifting raft at
sea without food.devouringl each

end of trusts. These instititions
have been ilrcilessly robbing

trusts magnates. and they are

they are turning upon each
other. and we look for a practi
cal demonstration of the say ing,
"when thieves fall out, honest
men get their dues." When the
Rockefeller's and Morgans turn
their attention to robbing the
Keene'- and Gould's. they will
be-in to accuse each other: the
courts ili be called upon toapply
the law- vnamite to the ill-tilled

lain up, that banks. mills.
churches and penitentiaries will
feel the trembling.
Our people do not realize that
Wall street is close to them.

in his cab running a locomotive:
they run the trusts wich pre~y
upon a helpless people. We
have a trust in operation at our
doors, and our own peo
ple are employed to entice
our farmers5 into its meshes,
the concern has so well protect
ed itself front competition that
its boldness is plain. Those own
ing stock in the cotton oil mills
resent the term "trust" when
applied to what is known as the
Independent Cotton Oil compla
ny, but if making threats to

competition in order to control a
product in a territory is not a
trust then we have mistaken a
beneficient organization for a
Think of a concern resenting
being designated a trust that has
secured control of eight or ten
mills located so as to almost form
a circle, actually making competi
tion impossible and then, by a
system of stock-watering build
on paper one of the largest con
eerns in th e State.
To giv e our readers an idea
what th~ese beneficient institu
tions are doiing to the peopkU
we know~ of s.ome stock that was
sold recently for 1.00 the owner
of the stock originally invested
about 85000 and dlrewv out for
his share of the profits much
more than he originally paid
in, without reducing his original
investment. The profits of the
oil mills have been enormous
out of all reason, and these
profits have been bled out of the
people, because the combinations
have had things their own way:
not even any resistance from
The peop~le have submitted to
this extortion like sheep submit
to the slaughter, and we think
it is time to call a halt. If the
farmers continue to perit tis
condition they deserve alite'
tleecing~ the trust can worki on
themn. It will be remiembiered
that a little scheme was manipu
lated last season whereby the
trust paid an advance price for
seed a short while, and then
charged for meal a price bastedl
on whiat it called "thie highi
price of seed," another schiee
of the trtust has been to base the
price of meal on the pr ice

We have always contended
that it does not pav a farmer to
sell his seed. but many success

and we may be wrong,. but when
it comies to what the farmer gets,
and the protits made from what
the farmer sells. there is no
scientitic research or chemical
analysis necessary. it is a plain
common sense proposition, too
plain to be controverted. If a
farmer sells a bushel of corn to
a miller for 5(t cents and that
miller grinds it and realizes from
it M50. the miller has paid the
farmer far less than the value
for the corn, and if that miller
was the only source whereby the
farmer could dispose of his corn.
the taking advantage of the sit
uation to pay less than the legit

What is to be gained by the
speeches Senator Tillman deliv
ered in the west last week we
cannlot see, other than the put
tinsr of some dollars into his own
poket. The Senator belongs
to a lyceum bureau. and on ac
count of his unusual sayings, lie
is a good crowd drawer, hene

thereby endeavor to turn the
tde of immigrat ion to the South
and to South Carolina especially.
Tilhinan's negro speeches are
not givingi us any aid: they do
not induce a single dollar to be
invested here. nor an individual
to move to the South. The peo
pe of the north know full well
that the negro hias no fpossib~le
chance to rule in the South. even
f lie was disposed to do so,

There are thousands of men in
South Carolina who would re
sent anyv attempt of the negro

reessityv for constantl y talking
about it, especially whien the

To have our goods right for their intended purpose and our
prices are lower than the same goods can be obtained elsewhere.
We handle the same goods handled by other merchants, only
our prices are LOWER.
If we failed to do as we say, we would lose your confidence,
and under no circumstances do we wish to lose that.
Will say again that we sell our goods at LOWER PRICES
than you can imagine. We need the room, as Mrs. Hirschmann is
in New York and some new bargains are coming in. so don't lose
any time, but come and see for yourself. It will pay you to come

You want now and that's exactly what we have for you.
We have the goods and ask about half what other mer
chants ask. Then, why pay others so much more than you need
Let us show you through our line next time you are in town.
Has to go as we have our store enlarged and don't want the dust
to ruin our pretty Hats, so come and get your Hat for half you
will pay elsewhere.
