COL ORH S ADVICE.
In ndvihiug (ho .farmers to hold
their cotton for higher prices Col. J.
L. Orr takes a very unusual position
for a cottou mill president, aud yut it
is a logical position.
As Col, Otr says, the interests of
the Southern mills and the Southern
farmers are identical in a ^reat many
It is to tho interest of both to keep
the price of cotton on a reasonable
ami business like basis.
As president of two of the largest
cotton mills in tho South Col. Orr
naturally wants to buy bis cotton ns
oheaply as bo can. Yet Ik* wants tho
price of cotton to bo higher than it is
now, and be wants thfi price to be
steady the year round.
It is tho great and sadden fluctuations
in the market, that hurt everybody,
farmers and mills alike. Naturally
a Soathevn mill man doesn't
want to see tho price of cotton full
two or three cents a pound after ho
has purchased a supply and mills in
other parts of the country be given
the advantage of lower prices. Nor,
on tbo other hand, does ho want to
see the price advance two or three
cents a pound in as many weeks after
-V 1)0 lino nnilf fn/ifo/1 /I

on a basis of low price cotton. Both
these things are possible, and do
occur, under present conditions.
The Southern mills and tho Southern
farmers should work together to
regulate and control the price of cottori.
Wo doubt if either cau succeed
by 'vorking independently, or by
fighting tbo other.
/'' Cottlin is :i Southern product
The pricc should be controlled in the
South, and tho price can bo controlled
in the South, it is to the interest of
all Southern people?manufacturer
bankers, merchants and farmers as
well?to work together to this end.
This has been the position of this
newspaper for a long time, and wo
have been urging it in season and
out of season. It is very gratifying
therefore, to have Col. Orr. and so
many other leading and influential
men, coming to our way of thinking.
11 is not too lato to seed a largeacreage
of wheat in South Carolina,
and the more home raised wheat the
South Carolina farmer 1ms the less
western flour ho will have to buy
with bis cotton money.
Tho Illinois Federation of Woman's
Clubs declares that extrava
gant dresses aro ruinous to women.

A man who has beon loyal to his
home paper for thirty yoars is a
valued friend, and one the Editor
does not wish to lose, and if these
old and true friends appreciated tho
position of the country editor they
would be the last ones to drop their j
I? all thoso whose names aro on the
list were like our old friend it would
not be necessary to adopt the "cash

may ask; Why not weed them out?
l'robably there is not a paper in tho
country that has not wceded more or
less, and after (lie process tlioy he
lievcd their list was ooraposud of nil
prompt payors. When a man subscribes
it is reasonable to supnoso lie
intends to pay, but wbon pay day
cjuigh *'Many are found wanting."
Now comes tbo question. "Who pays
the fiddler?" Why thoao who pay
for tboir paper, of course. You may
not seo it in that light, bccause the
price Remains the sunte, but you buy
j'our paper for its contents. Now, if
the Editor linn "his hobo at the grind
stone," and is busy trying to make
both ends meet, he cannot t'ive you '
what you have a right to expect for j
your money. Just try parceling out j
your fcotton for a few years among a;

FARMERS. HOLD YOUR COTTON.

Col. Orr?The Arguments he
In mi interview with h representative
of The Greenville Newa on l?Ht
Wedntfldny, Col. .lumen L. Orr, Pr?iident.
of tho Piedmont Manufacturing
Company, said it would be suicidal
for tho farmers of the South to sell
their cotton at 7 1-2 cents, when they
would undoubtedly receive higher
prices later ou. Ho believes thoj
nine cents will he paid if tho farm'"I'j
will onlv agree to hold. V
Col. Orr was asked what ho thought
of the eoltou and goods situation. He
replied that it wns badly mixed
There will unquestionably bo a large;
crop, ho said, but not as larcre as th? I
