A Farmer's Advice.
Davis Station, S. C., August 1st, 1913.
Editor Manning Times. Manning, S. C.
Dear Sir:--This letter to you is for
the purpose of calling the attention of
the farmers to one very important mat
ter which has caused me considerable
trouble, annoyance andloss when gin
ning and marketing my cotton.
Every farmer knows that the cotton
buyers do not buy cotton for pleasure
or health but are in the business for the
money, they buy it just as cheap as
they can, sample as heavy as you wiil
allow, and call your attention to any
trash, colored or stained cotton and pay
you according to the poorest grade that
can be found in the bale, if gin cut you
just give it to them.
Some of us are very careful when
picking or having it picked, no wet cot
ton or trash allowed, others do not care.
and we do not like to have gined cut,
trashy and stained cotton mixed in a
nice clean bale. Now the only remedy
I see is for every farmer to request his
giner to leave no roll in thbe gins, then
every man will get his own cotton and
seed. I have often been compelled to
take from $2.50 to $5 00 a bale less on
account of bad cotton getting in the bale
from the wagon just ahead of me at the
gin besides the trouble to save seed to
plarnt or sell especially if it is blight
I see the cotton mills are going to pay
a great deal less for long staple if there
is any short staple in the bale, be there
ever so iittle, and also if there is any
long staple in the short staple bale, it
gives lots of trouble when it is spun.
Now let every farmer this Fall de
mand of his giner that no roll be left in
gin and see that the cotton buyers sam
ple light and not take a trip to the
mountains next summer on the samplles
he takes out of our bales.
IIf the ginners will not do it we can
easily get a law passed to compel them
It seems as if there is a great deal of
dissatisfaction in the condition of pack
ing and sampling the cotton crops of
the South, and. according to the figures
presented, and my own observation of
cotton on the market, there is a tre
mendous waste in the handling and
poor packing of it, and it's all from the
voor method we have.
I see farmers every year with cotton
tbrown around their yards on 2x4s for
months in all kinds of weather. and
some of the bales that were originally
packed in second-hand baggin2 was en
tirely gone. I don't see how the buyer
can handle cotton put on the market in
From years of experience as a ginner
and farmer, I would like to make a few
suggestions to the cotton growers and
ginners of the South. My plan would
be. something like this: To require gin
ners to reduce their press boxes to
measure 18x36 inches: that would give
you a bale with 9 cubic feet with a des
tiny of 27 to 30 pounds to the foot,. the
bale to weigh from 250 to 300 pounds.
The press of the present size can be
changed for about $10, and can be done
by any workman.
With the present power and strength
of the press, you could put up a better
bale with less wear and tear of your
machinery. To wrap that bale you
should use good burlap, or a coarse cot
ton cloth would be better; it would help
the South to consume the cotton crop.
You should cover the cotton on all
sides, and use a No. 10 galvanized wire
The ginner shiould be able to grade
cotton as it comes from his condenser
very easily, he being in a position to see
all of the cotton that goes into the bale:
with his stencil and platform scales he
could weigh and stamp that cotton with
grade, weight and his name. so ne
would be responsible for grade, etc.
That bale of cotton would be accepted
by the world by the brand it wears. and
not be sampled and weighed by every
Tom, Dick and Harry. We buy our fer
tilizers, grits, meal and everything by
the original weights and grade. regard
less of shrinkage, etc., and cotton is the
only thing put up in original packages
that is weighed every time it chaLjes
By adopting this method you would
not see cotton thrown around on the
ground, but when a man came home
from the gin with his cotton in a neat.
package he would put it away in his
cotton house, because he could handle
it without much trouble. He would not
mind stacking it up on his front porch.
When that cotton is put on the market
it could be handled in transit without
being torn to pieces by hooks.
Now, you will nnd objections to this
plan-not by the ginner, he will get a
little more out of it: not by the farmer:
because be will get millions out of it;
not by the spinner, because ne will get
what be buys, and not a lot of damaged
;tuff-the objection will come from the
man who gets an unjust living between
the farmer and the suinner. The kick
will come from the one-horse cotton
buyer who loads his scales and mis
Vrades your cotton the public weighs.
who will be thrown out of a job, and
probably the compress man.
It is hoped by everybody that the
south will wake up to some better sys
em of handling the cotton crops and
;ave the $40,000,000 thrown away every
rear.-L. B. McFaddin. Sardinia. S. C .
