the opening l'or the lint to roach
its full growth. This period tlt;peu'ls
very much upon the weather,
if your cotton is left in tbe field.
Picking docs not stop this growth
jOf the lint, but ginning does, hence
I cotton should never be ginned for
several days alter it is picked.
I This linmatuie lint very greatly
damages tho quality of tbe staple.
It also lossens the quantity of the
I lint in proportion to tho seed.
Cotton that is stored in a cotton
house lor n short timo will nuiko a
hotter sample yield more lint for u
liven amount of seod cotton. Tho
{'availing custom of rushing tho
cotton from iho field to the fzin

the crop, anil also in tlio quality of
