Kditor the Advertiser:
"Observer" in your last issue has
examined tho cotton "elephant" and
although he says he never gives ad
vice about when to sell he goes right
on and does that very thing. I don't
know who he is but I put him down as
a "hear." It is easy to say "1 told you
so" when the thing has already hap
pened. 1 have been thinking a good
deal about tho "elephant" myself and
I have concluded it Is not so much
because of overproduction or on ac
count of increased acreage. The
greatest trouble 1 think is because tho
crop is sold before it is made. Tho
bulk of the crop is made by those who
owe it all and they have to put it on
the market early in the fall without
regard to price. The negroes with
few exceptions and a large majority of
white farmers are in this elass. There
is little chance to hold back the crop
but speculators and spinners can got
it at their own price. I don't see any
chance for a change. I know good
men who if they pay out and have
some money instead of keeping it to
"pay as they go" they are not satis
! tied until they spend it. maybe buy n
few more acres of land when they
are already "land poor." A neighbor
of mine, some yearB ago, decided he
would buy for cosh to run his one
horso farm. He borrowed $125.00
about March. Jn a few days he drove
to town to buy for cash. On the way
ho met a man selling township rights
to make and sell a new guano dis
tributor. This man showed him he
could make lots of money out of it.
Ho got $25.00 of my neighbor's money
and I don't think he ever sold more
than two or three distributors. Just
threw away $25.00. That is just the
trouble, some one will como along and
show you "a good investment (?) and
nine times out of ten tho poor farm
er will "bite." Some yertrs ago a com
pany traveled in this county selling
a two horse cultivator the "Cahil
plow-' I believe, or some such name.
A man who lived near came with the
man to my Held. He was sure he could
sell to me. He got out his plow and
with two big horses he did sure turn
tip the soil, but I did not bite. It wns
not long after that you could see
those plows thrown to one side and
discarded all over the county. The sea
sons were more favorable this year
over the cotton belt. I made myself
about one-third more on the same land
than last year, hut I don't I oliove
three million more bales ought to have
cut the price to S l-'J cents.
