South Carolina Division of the South
ern Cotton Association Takes up
Mr. Wagener's Suggestion.
Tlio officers of the South Caro
- lina division of the Southern Cot
ton AssociationIl have taken up the
Ifmovement, started by the Southern
Wholesale Grocors, to push the
uso of bags or sacks made of cot
ton. This matter is presentod in
another column of thi3 paper. The
idea is to cArry out in a practical
way one of the propO3ltioIs On
whioh tho Southern Cotton Asso
ciation was founded-to increase
the market for cotton goods, as
well as to reduce the acreage used
in production of cotton. While
some want to create a greater de
mand for cotton goods in the
orient to supplant the costly silks.
the practical business men of the
wholosale grocers' association have
seen an opportunity to declare that
the market can be expanded right
hero at ho!Ve by demanding that
manufacturers use cotton instead
of jute and burlap for bagging.
Indeed there has been somo talk
of the people of the South resort
ing to the use of water duck, cot
tonades and other cotton fabrics
for cloth ing in the summer and
thus to show to the world that we
prefor wearing apparol made of
our own home staple. This was
done per force during the War Be
twoen the Sections, when necessity
required the Southern people to
livo very, very economically. To
some this might appear to be car
rying the "movement" to an ex
treme upproaching fanaticism, but
the earnest loaders in the efTort to
get cotton into the control of the
producers think that by next sum
mer tiey will have the people of
the South willing to use cotton
goods to an cxtenit unprecedented.
While th is wearing appiarel prop
osition may ajpeoar to 1be some
what chimerical, yet there is much
*force and logie in the movement to
demand the use of cotton insteadl
of burlap in marketing grain, mn
*shipping fertilizers, antd in other
commercial uses. This would m-.
*crease the consumption of cotton
by hundreds of thousands of bales.
Mr. F. II. Weston, secretary of
the South Carolina division, has
sent to every county orgamzation
ane earnest appeal to stand by the
movement for the increased use o
cot ton in the manufacture of bag
and bagging. ie has also writte
to Mr. Geo. A. Wagoner of Charle.
ton commending the mlovemnent (o
which Mr, Wagoner is the leadini
spirit. Following is Mr. Watson
letter to the county organizations
"I am sending you under separ
ate cover by today's mail an arti
ele in reference to the use of cot
ton bags. I consider this one o
the most important matters tha
our association can undertake. Yo'
wvill recall that at the time the as,
sociation was formed, it wats no

The South's Golden Opportunity Neg
leglected Says a Michiqander.
We reproduce Lelow from thC
Progressive Farn.er and Cott->n
Plant, an excellent agricultural
journal published at Raleigh, N.
C. a highly suggestive letter from a
Michigan farir on the golden
opportuinty for stock raising in the
South. Our people have really
'had cotton pulled over their
eyes,'' as he says, ror they would
not have been so blind to the op,
portunities about them. "Soil sui
cide" is a good wcrd that he gives -
us to descilbe any system of farm
ing which leaves out stock raising.
Read the letter which follows:
Prof. B. W. Kilgore,
Raleigh, N. C.
Dear Sir:-I find tho Progressive
Farmer vory interesting. So many
things are vastly different from
our methods. It seems as though
you are favored. Today (March
12th) the sun is shining on fiolds
glistening with snow. Here and -
there tho earth breaks through and
looks appealingly upward to the
sun. Not two hundred foot away
are drifts all of four fbet deep.
There are a few bare spots in the
roads, but runner vehicles are all
in use still, and this is the seventy
seventh day of continuous, unbro
kon sloighing. There were a few
days of sleighing previous to that,
but there was an interval of bare
ground. For seventy-seven days
the snowv has not been wholly
miilted fromt my house roof.
Do thie planters selJ their cotton
seed to oil r..ills and buy back theI
fertihizer meal? Isn't this meal of
more value to feed farm animals
than for fertilizer? Certainly with
your bormuda and cra b grasses and
vast store of cotton seed it des1
