Sit down and take stock of the situ

of cotton. I made on my own farm I
last year 175 bales. This year I will
not plant an, acre of my own but will
plant 250 acres in corn and velvet
beans and oats. By planting my land
in corn and beans I will have that
land in fine condition another year
Let me say right here, that every
farmer that can plant velvet beans
should have them in every acre of
corn he plants. It doubles the grain
crop on your land, adds fertility to
the soil and supplies feed for cattle
I attended the cotton convention
last Thursday in Colnubia and I was
impressed with the earnestness of the
four hundred farmers and bankers in
the hall and I feel like we will get
results. The meeting in New Or
leans on the 17th will unify all the
nlans of all the cotton states and then
it is the purpose to have committees
to visit the farmer and take his name
and how much cotton he planted last
year and how much he proposes to
cut it down. In the event that he
declines to join in with those th-at
agree to cut, l.is name will be turn
ed over to all the banks with a re
quest that his credit be restricted.
We are in a fight and we must win.
We can win by reducing our cotton
crop. This is the only way it can be
lone-to hold the present crop and
make more cotton to depress the
price of that we have on hand seems
too foolish for any sensible man to do.
You can buy October cotton on the
New York Exchange at nineteen
cents. Can you make it and deliver
it in New York at that price under
present conditions and live a comfort
able life and give your family the
things you would like to see them
have ? If you can plant less cotton
you will get more money for it and
the old Southland will smile with
plenty and prosperity like we did last
fall. We are entitled to a good living.
We can demand it if we will take
warning. Now is the accepted time.

PEOPLE ARE NOT TAKING UP
WAR WORK PLEDGES
February 8, 1910.
Mr. W. D. Melton, State Chairman
United War Work Campaign, Co
lumbia, S. C.
My Dear Mr. Melton:
I am somewhat, surprised to learn I
that a great many subscribers to the
United War Work Fund are showing
a spirit of indifference. May I not
suggest that you take this matter up
with the various county organizations,
thru your collector, Mr. C. T. Frick,
and urge the collection of all pledges?
There seems to be a feeling on the
part of some of the subscribers that
these funds are not now needed. They
seem to overlook the fact that a -
great deal of this money was actually
spent or pledged prior to the cam
paign, and it is very much needed now
in bringing the soldiers home.
I cannot believe that the people of
South Carolina would feel indifferent
to this matter if they can be made to
realize that if we fail now it will.
be the first time since we entered the
great World War. Surely we will
not give anyone reason to say that
we are lacking in gratitude. It is i
true the fighting is over, and the sol- [
dier is now to return to his home.
When he went away to brave every
danger, and make every sacrifice, he 0
felt that his cause was just, and that
the people for whom he fought were
worthy of him. We cannot afford to
disappoint him wvhen he returns. -
I beg to suggest, therefore, that i
you endleavor to present through your U
county organizations to all subsc rib-.
ers who have not paid their pledges,
first: The actual need for the. fund; i
secondl: That the people of South[
Carolina cannot affor d to (10 less for.
avictorious army than they did for I
a fighting army.
If I can he of aid to you in any wayv,.
do not hesitate to command me.
Very truily yours, 1
