In our cotton growing States we
have panics and starvation when
we make our largest crops of cot,

over-production? No! They know
more about their business than to
allow their successful production
to ho the meais of their down fall!
Why can't cotton farmers man.

ducors who apply the business tact
that the producers have failed to do
for their own interest.
What do sensiblo manufacturers
do when the trend of the markets
for their products indicate over
production? Do they tumble over
each other like cotton producers do
in their rush to the farmer, the
Conlsumers of their goods, and ask
the farmor what he will give him
for his surplus, and finally toll the
farmer in so many words, "Seo here,
now, we men did not take our goods
to eat or wear we made these things
for you farmers, and if you don't
needi them, you must take this stuff
of our hands at your own) prico?"
No I organized manufacturers do
nlot actsa fool like thati But cotton
farmers have beeni doing that kind
of foolish business for forty years.

No Protection for the Unorganized Cot.
When the huntsman's hounds
strike the trail of game, tho 'possum
has his hollow log for his protection,
foxes have their holes and the rae
coon has his den, but when cotton
bears strike out on the trail of the
unorganized cotton grower, this un
worthy sori of the South hath- not
whore to lay his head.
When well organized, the farm
ing interests of our cotton belt
would be the greatest money power
on the continent; our cotton inter,
est properly organized would be the
biggest giant among all our giants
of tradesmen.~ But, in its unorgan
ized state the Southern cntton pro.
ducers have been held up before
the world in ridicule as the sinall
ost giant on earth. Farmer-oot.

that faculty of sense of selfpreser..

and act like men, concentrate your
labor and money in a community
warehouse. Prepare your fortifica.
tions now while we have compara
tive quiet-on the cotton market, and,
above all, act together in pricing

confer with each other as to what
their cotton is worth; never again

South Carolina cottoil farmers this

yet we nre told by the chemist that
the mtost valuablo constituents in
these ahinmoniiated fertilizers are
soluble in water, and if not soluable
in water that they aro no good.
After the ton days of heavy rains
we had in June there is not enough
of this ammonia loft in the st l to
make cotton enough for a monkey
We want a new cultivator with a
