That bright fool that ii in your
Union who sold his own crop of cot
ton for future delivery and keeps at
it trying to persuade others to do
the same ununion act, should be
backed up ag.inst the business end
of his first cousins, the long-eared
ass, where lie will receive the grand
bounce out of the UAiou and land
into some future society that carries
its brains in the opposite end from
where good Farmers' Union members
carry theirs.
Remember this, that a large por

outside of the Union, watch the mill.

About the fifth of 8eptember you

Farmers' Union objects are, first,
how to put more business in your
farming and, second, how to put more*
brasins in your work.
These principles applied to farming
properly will do wonders in tbe way
of making fine crops, but your prlof.
its just here are in uncertain status
if you allow others to name the price
for your products. There is in most
men a kind of disposition to take all
that the other fellow will allow, a; d
the pro fits in your ye ar's labor have
gone to others whbo have neitI er
opeut a day's labor or a (dime to pr. -
duce the crop.
Just here is the strong position of
the Farmers' Union whose obijets
-are to combine their interests in a
way to control or place a fair price on
their own products, and they have
been very successful in doing this
during the last three years.
This principle is the right thing to
do, and so long as we stand by these
rules we are going to continue to be

fencing against an accident by some
speaker not showing up we overload P
the meetings sonietimles by about e
double the number of speakers that

We have known some men to get W4
up and talk one and a half hours re- tl
peating about the same thing over a

dozen speakers, and the people, too,

The remedy for this is to start in
time and be sure to get men that ht
k low something about the subject to Be
be discussed and above all to know bi
how to condense their ideas and stop b
at the right place. When you get the "
right man remeitber that this man th

15 Cent Cotton Below Cost of Pro- 0
The price of cotton is practically set
by the Union again, at less than the cost
of production, or for less than it was
when it brought 6 cents per pound.
N. B.-Mules are 125 per cent up, la. d
bor considering quality 150 per cent up, S
land 350 per cent up, insurance 50 per O
cent up, everything else required to
grow and gather a cotton crop are about gi
in proportion to the above pe cent, and th
cotton only up 117 per cent. Farmers
cant you see that you are still making a
cotton for less than 6 cents per pound. W
Who will be able to staud? I do not P
hesitate to answer the question. The di
negro will always stand so long as the w4
white man has anything; the man who
works his family even his women folks
out fu the broiling sun shine and denies
them everything saive the bare necessi
ties of life. It will not be the man whoip
is in debt for his farm, it will not be the I
man who feeds, clothes and educates this a
family like othersi do, it will not be the 20
farmer wvho spends his money like a
white m mn and drinks Bourbon whiskey to
like others do. There are limited ex- wi
ceptionis to the above.
Being as money is cheap, why make
only cotton cheap with it, the South's It
oily hope? Mr. Union, keep your cot-.
ton cheap with money and money will
react and then wihere will you and your wy
Union be?I
