Interest Growing
Pursuant to notice an audi
ence of farmers collected in the
court house last Saturday.
October 26th, to hear an address
by Hon. C. H. Carpenter on
the subject, the Staple Cotton
Growers Association. 'Mr. Car
penter is the champion long
staple cotton raiser of the up
country. His facts and figures
are obtained from experience.
There was no guess work.
He began at the natural and
logical fojundation of success in
the enterprise which is the
selection of seed. This is the
plan by which the sea island
cotton has been kept up to such
a high standard. It is by
choosing seed from the best
product of the best variety of
seed each year. This variety of
cotton has been known to sell
from sixty to eighty cents a
pound while the haphazard, go
lucky, ordinary cotton was sell
ing at ten cents per pound.
The great difference in price is
made by the bestowal of care
and attention on the long staple
while the short staple has noth
ing put on it but hoodwinked
labor. He explained how each
sixteenth of an inch in the
r length of the staple added two
cents to the market value of
each pound. The difference
was illustrated by locks of cot
ton taken from the boll in the
presence of the audience, comb
- d and measured so that all
could see. He exhibited bills
by which it vas shown that the
upland long staple brought
twenty-four cents per pound on
the market while the other was
selling at eleven. The bitter
had cost as much in land. labor
and fertilizer to produce. The
difference represents the tre
mendous waste of time, labor
and money that could be sayed
by making the most of the
adyantages right in easy reach.
Mr. Carpenter stated that no
country could claim a monopoly
of advantages in raising cotton
and yet almost every section
had some peculiar advantage.
-There could be no such thing as
a best cotton. A company of
men might be together inspect
ing a dozen different fields, and
each would select- a different

tof the Reily-Taylor Co , of New

He introduced me to one of his
customers, to whom he referred

I asked this man to tell me way
he preferred Luzianne to all
other coffees. His reply was a
n splended tiibute to the goods.
's He stated that he could illus

one, because each. representing
a different industry, would find
the cotton he needed in the field
passed over by the others. Tc
each his field was the best. It
is the part of wisdom for farm
ers to study their conditions,
their soils and the demands of
the market. This is the object
of our Co-operative Association.
The Department of Agricul
ture, through its work, comes
into the' possession of facts
bearing diiectly on these points.
It recognizes the advantages
that would come to the farmer
by having this knowledge. It
proposes to giye it to him.
Whether results follow depends
on his own efforts.
This comes to the farmer like
Mr. Carpenter's lecture, free.
It makes every stroke of the
hoe and every furrow made by
the farmer worth twice as ;nuch
to him, both in his home and in
the market. It will double the
value of every acre of his land
without raising the assessment
for taxation.
M-. Carpenter showed how
the seed from the long staple
cotton would be too valuable to
have the oil crushed out. A
man in Texas had asked him
for 1.000 bushels, He could sell
5,000 bushels if he had them.
They could easily be sold in car
load lots at $1.00 per bushel.
And the Co-operative Associa
tion, in marketing cotton, in
large lots to one buyer, could
make a great saving to each of
its members.
What a stupendous amount
of wealth the farmers and all
the other trades, throw away
by not using the knowledge and
care that are in such easy reach!
With a soil and climate like
ours, that answers every intelli
gent demand upon their
resources, our wealth should out
strip that of Southern California.
After hearing wilh the great
est interest and attention the
address of Mr. Carpenter, many
in the audience went with him
to a nearby cotton field to be
sho vn the symptoms of a boll
disease, and to be told how to
prevent it, and how to treat it to
avoid its recurrence.
