COTTON LETTER. s
The cotton market has reached a; e
point where caution is to be urged j
though the profit' possibilities of the j ^
staple have .not been-exhausted, non
?so far as we can see?have they J ^
reached their limit of expansion. ?ot-;1
ton undoubtedly will sell at 25 cents v
before the end of the year?before ^
December becomes the spot month, v
very likely. It is not improbable that v
30 cents will be reacnea Deiore we begin
figuring on the 1923 acreage v
or commence calculating the number
of boll weevil to the square. ^
Notwithstanding the pressure from
profit taking sales the market has s
shown strength and has rallied sharp- n
ly after each moderate setback. It ^
/ has been a good trading market for
those who have followed it closely 0
and have accepted our advices. As ^
the holders of contracts have liqui- s
dated and taken profits there has >
been somewhat of a falling off in ^
new purchasing, possibly because
. trade interests have shown a dispo- t
sition to take the staple before the a
reaction had proceeded far enough r
to satisfy the technical market ideas \ d
of the professional trader. A rise of r:
$20 a bale in less than a month appears
to demand a recession of more b
than $1.50 or $2 a bale, and the pro- r
fessional has waited?vainly?for h
, what he is pleased to term , "a fair- v
sized reaction." a
The size of the crop is not yet ac- v
cUrately determinable, although esti- r
mates of Jess than 10,000,000 bales t
predominate. We do not believe that a
th%_forecasts that it will be about
9,000,000 will be borne out by the b
actual figures, but there undoubtedly v
will prove to be less than the 10,000,000
that was regarded as mini\
mum only a few weeks since.
Much has been made of the , ad- t
vances in the prices of cotton goods h
and the inability of mills to obtain d
sufficient cotton to last them through a
to the next crop. But it must be re- s
membered that the demands and con- r
sumption of cotton in recent months t
have been based on 20 to 23 cent si
cotton and that it is doubtful how
far the public demand will last if i'
cotton manufacturers move beyond b
' the 25-cent basis. This factor has not ft
been taken very much into consider- h
ation, but it is a big one. There is tl
always a level at which price checks
consumption. It depends not so much v
on the comparative price of the com- ii
_ -L JZ?T X ?. ?: ~ ~ ? a.1
moaiiy at uiuereub periuus, uut, uii n
the Tatio between the price of the
commodity and the general price lev- f
el. The general price level?the in- tl
dex number?has shown a rising tendency.
Somewhere between 25 cents t<
and 30 cents for cotton?judging b
from present conditions?a check, v
whether temporary or not is to be j,
seen later, will be administered to j g
the price of cotton. - ?
That is one reason we suggest cau- e
tion, even while confident that the v
nriee of cotton is coiner to ?0 -a
through 25 cents and may advance e,
to 3.0 cents. We suggest that advant- p
age be taken of recessions below 24 0
cents for the taking on of January a
to May contracts, but would advise
the taking of moderate profits with j
a view to repurchases. j

SAVING RUTABAGA TURNIPS. 1
Clemson College?Pull the turnips
up about the middle of December. c
Cut the tops off near the turnips and r
also cut off the large roots. Place in *
.. banks containing 8 to 15 bushels *
each, and cover with 12 inches of x
soil. There is no necessity for put- t
tine straw of any kind around the t
turnips; let the soil come in direct r
contact with the turnips so as to e
keep them fresh and crisp through- il
out the winter. Turnips banked in (
this way will keep in good condition i
until early in March. a
