Lisbon, Dec. 5.-We are doing the
best we can under the circumstances,
short crops with a short price to comn
pare with former years. when we ex
pected at least 12 or 13 cents for outr
cotton. Who is to blame? Well, if
you will believe our version of the
matter we are wholly to blame. We
very often remark to our friends on
our way to Laurens, how can we ex
pect anything but hard times when
we seo nothing but red hills with
nothing but cotton scattered all over
every nook and corner. We aire
caught, and we have to look to some
other source for relief than cotton.
We think that the people have waked
up to the realization that we have to
raise more food stuff for man and
beast from the fIlelds of wheat and
oats you can see going from pllace to
place. We have in a degree got in the
labbit of buying everything we need
at Laurens and other places and that
is one ,reason we do not raise corn,
wheat, oats and hogs, from the fact
we (ol't want to have all tlis trou
lle. ThIe west is getting a good irice
for their produce on account of this
great war, while we are getting so
little for what We have produced. wve
have file job of a(justlg matteri's and
It is 11p to us to do it. There is but.
littie cottoil in the llid right at this
tilme yet it may take until aifter the
holidays before tle peoile get through
If it don 't, Stoll iinA. Those Who
have a good hog to kill are looking
forward for tho weather to get cold
that they may enjoy them. We have
to take things as we find then and
do the best we can. The merchants
and bankort litde' done their part fil
IV in thie. matter and we hope that
they will get the last dollar that is
due them in the end.
Miss McLure is going, to have a
Christmas tree and a box supper at
the Lisbon high school Wednesday
evening, Dccember 23rd, and she wants
everybody that can to attend.
