EXTRAVAGANT, AT LEAST
(The Colton Acreage Committee, Memphis, Tenn.)
Money put into the new crop to protect old debts is
throwing good money after bad--extravagant, to say the
least, for cotton can be bought right now for less than it
can be grown.
Unless the price of cotton advances, it will cost more to produce cotton
this year than it can be sold for. Middling cotton is quoted at 11 i-2c, but
Iost. of the cottoi Se'lling today is going at prices around 5c 'to Sc a pound.
Cotton being bought at 5C to Sc is not the lowest grades, but is good cot
ton, representing excellent spinning qualities.
The prico of middling cotton is misleading. Somie middling cotton may
b selling at almost 11 1-2c, but the real market is on cotton that is bring
ing not more than Sc per pound. In comparison -therewith, the quotation on
middling should not be over 9e. I-ither midding is too high or grades below
middling are too low in price, intrinsic differences considered. Now, what
is the use of attempting -to opay debts by operating a business continuously
-t a loss? If there Is no hope for a profit, but a certainty of a loss, any
pilrudlent businmess man would stop the loss by closing up shop, if he could,
until there was some prospect of a proiltable business. We know of one
man who owns a plantation. That man has not got tire nerve to go into the
imlarket and pay Se a poun1(d for 1,000 bales of cotton, bullt he does inteind thi;
year to 1plant for 1,000 bales of CottOl aid Ie adiits that he d(oes not expect
to produce that cotton for less than 13 l-2c at pound. Wouldn't it be a whale

'Ve are1 itt posiion to choose al'solitely and gulide our owII colurse. Yet we
