Poor cotton crop conditions indicat
ing a smaller crop yield and a conse
q<uent enhanucemen t in price per pound
brings 11') the question. wlether or
not a -:"or't crop is advantageous or
disadvantageous t4) tle Sout Ii as a
whole. We have all becoie acecustoiim
ed to hearing that It is better for the
cotton producer if his erop is short,
provided he can get as much money
from its sale as if he had had better
luck in growing it. But is not this
somewhat erroneous? It depen ds 1 upon
whom we class as producers. If we
count the land owner or employer bf
farm labor as the cotton producer,
the claim may be well founded. On
the other hand, if we consider the la
borer on the farm who actually plants
the seed, cultivates the plant and then
gatliers the ('roll as the producer,
we may find that the generally ac
cepted idea of profit to the pro
dlucer is wrong. The land owner
who i'ents out his acres for stand
ing rent prlotits just. as imich froim
the sinall or, larger crop, provided
lite retiis from either are the
same, for lie has no otlier charge
against the land but interest and p s
sible depreciation. It matters litile
with himl whetler the crop he large
or small. The employer of farm la
ton. may similarly be pleased with a
sliort crop and a big price, for Ihis ex -
pense of gathbering and ginniiing i. ma
terial ly lessened. The thlird lut aity in
the deal, however', comes in fo r ani ac
ual loss. 'The laborer's prolit1, of
course, is in the daily wvage fromij his
work and a short crop reduces hi8
wa ge, evetn though it increases thle
profit of his boss. After' ali, then there
is a loss to otne class of priodutcer iv

Orangeburg Jury Holds James P.

Orangeburg, Sept. 19.-The case
against James P. Browning, charged
with the murder of Laurie D. Fairey,
near Branchville on Juie 9, 1919, was
concluded today, the jury rendering a
verdiet of guilty, with recQmienda
tion to mercy, thereby giving the de
fendant a life sentence in the State
peniiteitiar-y. This was a case that
elicited much interest throughout the
coulnlty. owing to the prominence of
the pairties. Both were well known
farniets of the lranchville section.
it seems that there had been bad
feeling ietween Browning and Fairey
for y-airs, they having had a law suit

They sell an article of standard brand several cents cheaper

Now, if these stores carried out this policy on al their goods
