Mr. Jake Weaver of Mart, MoLen
nan county is in tho city today and
meoting him on the streot this morn
ing a representative of The News
put a few interrogatories with refer
ence to the prospects among the cot
"Is thero any disposition in your
neighborhood Mr. Weaver to reduce
tho aoreage of cotton?" was askod.
Thore is some talk about it but I
reckon every man will r.in
all tho ground ho can get broke
including all the sod land, and now
and then a rented patch. That's my
advice to my neighbors. I boliove
every farmer ought to raise all the
corn, wheat oats, hay, in fact, every
thing in the way of feed and hogs
enough for his moat, but for a money
crop he is bound to plau'tAotton. Uot
ton is nr'ghty low, I gratit you, but if
one bale brings fcii), two bales will
bring $60, and if that is our only
money crop I would liko to know how
wo can help ourselves.
"I have heard a pmnt. a0i i...i
uvUr prouueuon as Deing tho oiuso of
the low prioo in cotton bnt I don't bo
heve a word of it. Why, in 1867
cotton sold here in Waco at 4 oonts a
pound and everybody was afraid of it
at that price. I was raising ootton then
in tho Brazos Bottom and in common
with every other ootton raisor, wanted
to know why ootton sud
denly dropped so low.
T TOflQ tnA tlinn -,. r ...
- ., ,v. vuuu us i am now that it
was overproduction, that we wore
raising too much of it, wo had better
jnaut- jess cotton and more corn and
other grain. The next year ootton
oponed up at 10 oonts and beforo the
season closed went to 18.
"This is a cotton country and it is
foohshnoss for tho farmers of Texas
to try to raisa grain for the mar
ket. As I said before it is
well enough for all of iLem
to raise their own hnna anA . j
all kinds of feed for their own use
but wo can't compete with Kansas
Missouri, Illinois and other western
states m tho grain market, and thore
are many things other states can raise
and soil us cheaper than wo can raiso
them ourselves. If this wero not
truo wo would need no commerce.

"A restriction of suoh exchange is
detrimental to all produoors too? re
markod the reporter."
"You aro exaotly right there. Wo
want to oxchancc our ootton with
anybody who will give us more of
what wo want in return for it and wo
