Little Rock Meeting.
The County Agent was sent to
Little Rock, Arkansas to attend the
first meeting of the Co-operative Cot
ton Grower's Association of that
state. The Board of Directors met
at that time and organized. Mr.
Sapiro, the lawyer In the case, was
present and assisted in this work.
The committee reported that Arkan
sas had signed up 311,000 bales of
cotton to be sold co-operatively this
year. The organization was perfect
ed and everything seemed very favor
able for a successful marketing or
ganization. The main object in sending the
County Agent from this county to
this meeting was to meet Mr. Spire
and get him to draw up a constitu
tion and by-law to submit to the cot
ton growers of Missouri. This at
torney took the mailer up and pro
mised to submit the constitution and
by-laws within the next few days
It is planned by the Farm Bureau of
this and other cotton counties of
Missouri, to perfect an organization
similar to that of the other cotton
states and get in the co-operative
marketing game with them. It is u
movement that will probably control
one-third of the cotton produced this
coming year and no doubt will grov
until it controls a greater part of I lie
cotton crop. The great National
Cotton Marketing Organization has
been promoted by the Farm Bureau
in the several states and it seems now
that this is going to be the market
ing plan that will help the farmers
get the best prices for their cotton.
The pigs that were bought at Sik
eston last week have been disposed
of and the County Agent will attend
a Duroc sale at Blythoville. Wednes
day of this week, and if bred gilts
arc selling at a reasonable price he
will buy a number of them to be dis
tributed among the boys and girls
who desire that breed of hogs. Othei
bred gills will be purchased from
time to time if the demand is great
enough among the boys and girls to
iustlfy making such purchases. Wo
advise all boys and girls who arc
able to qualify for a loan or can col
lect sufficient money, to buy one of
these gilts and start raising some
