royal '.court; and though indeed a king to be, and some blam

FARMERS SHOULD BUILD
COTTON WAREHOUSES NOW
In every cotton county farmers should
at once look into the question of - better
warehousing facilities. The recent mark
ed advance in cotton prices shows how
great an advantage is possessed by the
grower who in times of depression can
Tvarehouse his .cotton, borrow on the re
ceipts, and wait patiently on the Lord and
The waste and folly of leaving cotton
out in the weather have also been illus
trated in ten thousand cases this season.
Just for example, take the case of a
farmer whose experience we have just
heard of. He left five, bales of cotton
out in the .weather last fall, and when
he went to sell it recently, 400 pounds
had to be picked off as rotten cotton and
sold for ten cents a pound. In other
words, he got only $40 for this 400
pounds when he should have gotton $120,
his loss here being $80. ,He also had to
pay $5 a bale for picking and repacking
the cotton. Loss, $25. Total loss on
these two items, $105, or $21 .per bale
$21 being about as much as a whole bale
sold for twenty-five years ago!
"And it is probable,' , isaid our friend
who witnessed the transaction, "that the
t 1 . 1 i m m m
larmer aiso naa to taice a nail cent a
pound less for the rer-1- of the cotton than
he would Have received for it if it had
been properly stored." ..
The saving from "country damage" is
only one of several advantages offered
by the cotton' warehouse, but this advan
tage alone should insure the early estab
lishment of a great number of new ware
houses all over the South. The Progres
sie , Farmer.

Neglect Repairs Now
The replacement cost of every type of building and
every type of farming implement, is now so high that no
man can afford to let his property suffer for want of re

to houses, barns, sheds and agricultural implements as well
as to a busted shirt. A few dollars invested in paints,
roofing and dependable hardware increases the life and en
