We wish to announce to the Farm
ears of Clarendon. county that our Ware
house is now open and ready to store
their cotton. Owing to the increase
in value of cotton, making the expense
of insurance double what it was, our
charge will be 35c per bale per month
or fractional part.
It has , been truthfully said that
never in the history of the country was
the dictation of cotton prices so com
pletely and exclusively in the haids
of the producers as it is today,. and if
the market shall go to pieces and the
cotton of the South shall pass into the
hands of the buyers for less than it is
worth, the fault will be upon the pro
ducers, and upon them alone.
30. and 40c cotton is freely predict
edi, so, why not store yours, and help
put the price where it' ought to be?
