that more land is being planted or tho

As au oll'set to this increase in t be cotton
acreage, small grain is from S to Opor

Thus it seems that our farmers have
staked their all upon cotton, regard
less of results. This staple can bo raised
in South Carolina at a fair profit, pro
vided the funner can obtain 9 cents per
pound at interior towns, provided the
farmer is self-supporting as to corn, oats,

'demanding his interest, then there is no
money in raising cotton, or at least un
