HAYE YOU BOUGHT A BALE I
Members of the board of directors of |
the chamber of commerce as indi

start a campaign here for each person
who can afford it to buy a bale of
cotton at the rate of 10 cents per
pound. The proposition has not been
formally worked but; we understand,
but will be at once, and. the Idea fa to
have a certain number of bales agreed j
upon as this city'a quota, and no on?f
will be required to live up to the
agreement 'unless' the' entire number j
of bales to be bought is signed up.

as they always have boen, to help the

made to retire 40 per cent.

that- some way could be started lo
take care of the poorer people and to
put some money into circulation.
Debts cannot be paid unless there ls
some money in circulation. Credit
ls good in the south, but there is ver>
little money In actual circulation.

Wo .kn received s letter asking
that thine who hold mortgages and
patt due, scrips of indebtedness with

an appeal is absolutely unnecessary.
What the banking bouses of the city
are working for is the prosperity and
hnppmess of all the people, and not
merely to get all of tho money out of
debtors. However, something ls due
to th? tiena which baa to borrow the
money ?nd we .quote as interesting at
