THE FIRST BALE. < oltnn Opening and II11 11inir Farmers Kmraired in Friendly Hivalry (nr First Hale Honors The first bale of the season, grown in St. Francis county, lias arrived, and also the second, and a part of another. All of which is an indi \ to the fact that what little rntr*Mi K left In the fields after the of worms, bugs, drought, overplus of rain, and other unfortunate circum stances, is beginning to mature, and will soon be put on the market to replenish the purse of its owners this latter fact being good news and bringing cheer to the hearts of those who have toiled throughout the long, hot,sultry days of summer to produce it, or have their means invested In it with the hope of reasonable gain: and the former fact, that of the damage, being Ixirrie with stoic fortitude and hope that great boon to mankind that they may yet he rewarded in some measure at least, for their labor and risk. Tom Williams, an industrious and hustling colored farmer living on a farm iielonging to Mr. It. .1. Lanier, manager of the Caldwell Mercantile & Gin Company, of Caldwell, at whose gin it was ginned, has the honor and distinction of having gathered the first hale of the lull crop of cotton in this county. Tlds lirst bale was gin ned as above on last Friday, sent to Forrest City, and sold to Fussell-Gra iiam-Alderson Company at ,130f>. It weighed 50*2 pounds,classed middling, and brought Itio.al. The buyers im mediately shipped it by express to The Stewart-GWynne Company, at Memphis. We congratulate Mr. Lanier and his faithful helper, Tom Williams, and wish them great prosperity. If tie will furnish ids address we will send Tom The Times one year as a premium. On Wednesday morning early, Mr. W. T. Smith, who is farming the I'earson place a short distance out northeast of town, and who recently brought us the first open boll of the season, came in with a load of cotton and informed Mr. Jim Wolfe, of the Forrest City Gin, that lie had a hale to gin. Mr. Wolf had ids gin in tine order, ready fur any kind of a rnsh. and witli his usual promptness and characteristic dispatch, had the tires lighted, and got up steam in a jiffy, but when the load of cotton putin its appearance, lie discovered that lie had been unintentionally misled by Mr. Smith, who, in tlie exuberance of his joy, and with energetic and hap py confidence supposed that lie really had a hale- and the lirst bale at that. But when it was put on the scales it was found that lie had only atiout 700 lbs. of seed cotton,not nearly enough for even a small hale, so it was sucked into a bin there to await developments. A few hours later, however, Mr. .1. I. Brown, superintendent of the Planters Gin, was notified that a bale was enroute to his gin, and with his usual promptness soon had the smoke stack emitting a cloud, and the steam gauge creeping around to the proper tigures which indicates “ready for business." Allen Jackson an industrious col ored farmer on the Andersen place belonging to Pettus & Buford, .soon arrived, wearing a broad grin cf sat isfaction and happiness, and had the distinction of having the tirst bale of cotton ginned and sold in the Forrest City market from the Bill crop. Allen brought in a wagon load of seed cotton that weighed lfiOO pounds, and ilie tinishedbaie weighed 575 pounds. The bale was ginned free of charge, classed middling, was sold to Pettus & Buford, and by them to Mr. Johnnie Hughes, representing the Newlierger Cotton Co., of Memphis,at l."»c a pound, or a total of *86.25, and the seed at rate of *15 per ton. The bale was expressed to Memphis Wed nesday idght over the iron Mountain, (linner Brown, who has charge of the Planters Gin has his outtit in tine shape, and made quick work of the first bale brought in. Jackson is a hustler and also owned the first bale ginned by the Widener Gin Company. It was gin ned early yesterday morning. And so the cotton year was ushered in here, and “crops" is the most ab sorbing topic of discussion. The Times is optimistic,and though it is a fact that the damage is great, it could be worse, and we hope every farmer in the county will garner sutlicient for his needs and have some to spare.
