The Story of
Our States
WT IS to Wy
I omlng that
fulls the hon
or of hoing
the ilrst state
to grant equul
p o litlcal
rights to
women. In fact when congress,
In 1808, created tho Territory of
Wyoming from parts of Dakota,
Utah and Idaho, a constitution
was adopted which gave women
the right to vote.
There were rumors of early
Spanish explorations In Wyoming
but they seem unfounded by
fact. Probably the first white
men to visit this part of the
country were Sleur de la \feren
deze, and his sons who passed
through this region in 1743 in
search of locations for trading
posts. In 1804 the Yellowstone (
was first visited bj^y??jm? al
though the fame ojf its scenic
beauty was not given much cre
dence until 1870 und' It was set
aside as a federal reserve in
The first permanent fort In
Wyoming was creeled in 1834
where the Laramie river flows
into the Platte. Later when the
stream of immigrants passed
tlirough tatt region on their way
to (lie California gold fields a
string of forts were erected
ulong the Oregon Trail to pro
tect the travelers from attacks
by the hostile Sioux Indians.
Through Wyoming went not
only the Oregon Trail, which
was opened up by Lieutenant
Fremont end his guide, Kit Car
son, In 1842, but also the Salt
Lake Trail. Along these routes
many travelers crossed Wyo
ming, but few stopped and set
tled there as the country was
the most arid of all our states.
The - very of gold In 1807
led to the founding of South
Pass City and in the same year
Choyenne was laid out by the
Union Pacific Railroad company.
Wyoming became the forty
fourth state of the Union In 1800
and is eighth In slee with an
area of 07.914 squaro miles.

Tho M)oeting.s Outlined Almvo
are for tho purpose of giving out

These are two big subjects of ?he

The general meeting at Westmin

of surrounding territory shall be
given a chance to have co-operativo
marketing of cotton explained and
questions regarding contracts an

ject has been asked to be present at
tho meeting to present the market

given all who desire to sign the con- j
tract for efllclont marketing on the
California or Oklahoma plan. Those
who have questions regarding tho
contract should bring them to thc
Others Fall in Uno.
Last week lt was stated In this
paper that faimers in the State of
Arkansas had signed 250,000 bales
on the co-operative plan of soiling.
News is now received through the
Bli mingham papers that Alabama
has just launched her campaign for
tho same purpose.
Last week's Progressive Farmer
carried an amazing account of tho
victory of the Virginia Tobacco
Growers, stating that 25,000 grow
ers out of a possible 27,000 have
signed the marketing contract on to
bacco. In South Carolina this same
campaign of tho tobacco growers has
resulted in a successful sign-up, Unk
ing thom up with the States of Vir
ginia and North Carolina. Over one
hundred and fifteen million pounds
of tobacco, based upon the produc
tion of* tho signers In Virginia In
1020, has been signed up. Why ls
all this taking place? Because the
growers see tho many faults in the
present system, and now, for {he first
timo in history, have a sensible, busl
ness-liko and legal plan of selling
presentod to them. That is why they
aro taking hold of lt. They have rea
soned out the situation and have the
evidence of the success of the Cali
fornia fruit growers to point to as an
achievement of co-operative market
'In the words of a famous flour con
cern, "Eventually-Why not now?"
Question* and Answers on Co-opera
tive Marketing.
Q. "W hat does the Cotton Grow
ers' Co-operative Association propose
to do for the cotton grower?"
A. Grade, staple and weigh o?fi'n
bale and sell this cotton in large lots!
of even-running grades, as direct lo
mills or exporters as possible, thus
eliminating under-grading as well as
much useless handling.
Q. "Will this benefit tho farmer?"
A. Vos. The benefits thus securing
are easy to soe, and this modo of sell
ing is even now actually bringing in
more money to members of tho same
sort of selling organization In Texas
and Oklahoma, according to state
ments of Texas monvbors.
Q. "Will this selling system be
come stronger each year?"
A. Yes, boca use only four States
aro selling in this manner this year.
N'ext year North Carolina and Ar
kansas will be ready for tho system,
as tiioy have completed their sign-up.
In all probability South Carolina and
(loorgla and Alabama will also be
i ready to sell on tho samo system, be
ginning with tho crop of 1922.
Q, "Why should cotton benefit es
pecially whon sold on this systom?"
A. Because cotton ls now sold with
groator Ignorance, perhaps, than :my
Ho hos a good color. Ho ls strong
and virile, and looks lt. He ls good
humored. Ho laughs easily. In short,
he is "full of life," which is simply
another way of saying he is full of
red blood, if you are weak and run
down und nervous, don't sleep vory
well, and have a poor appetite, go
to your druggist and buy a few bot
tles of Qude's Pepto-iMangan and
take lt for a few weeks at meal time.
Soo how it will build you up by giv
ing you plenty of good blood. Don't
drag around, half sick and half well.

other crop grown. There ls necessary,
for efTlclent selling by the producer,
a knowledge of grade and staple,
each of which has a certain value on
the market, and of which the farmer
is now ignorant and cannot demand
the full value, because, In the first
place, he does not know the full
value, and, In the second place, ho
could not get lt because he, as an In
dividual, is helpless to command it.
Q. ".How Is price influenced in tho
marketing of a product?"
A. Aaron Saplro, the noted attor
ney for fourteen co-operative asso
ciations In California, who helped to
design this cotton contract, answers j
this as follows: "When there are 20 i
men selling prunes, cotton, etc., and
enly one man buying the product, the !
'BUYER controls the market; but |
when there is ONE man selling the '
prunes or cotton and four men BUY- |
INO, the SELLER controls the mar- j
Q. "I am an independent cotton ;
grower. Why should I sign away my
A. If the person who makes such
a statement really thinks about lils
position there ts no need to answer
him. However, we will say that when !
he thinks about tho matter he will
find that he ls a most helpless indi- j
vidual, who does not know the true
grade of his cotton and hasMM) way '
of getting the true value of it, oven i
though he knew what lt was. Also,
he helps to make his situation more
helpless by throwing , his cotton Ig
norantly upon the market regardless
and In competition with all other
growers who are In a similar posi- j
Q. "Yes, lt may be good, but I
want to KNOW who handles my cot
A. If you are growing cotton for
sentimental reasons, and wish only
to cater to some certain man, then ,
that ls a valid argument; otherwise,
if you aro growing cotton for tho
MONEY, then it ?3 not. Furthermore,!
you DO know who wiil handle your
I cotton, for lt will bo the men chosen
each year by you ns directors of your
association. Each grower has one :
vote and selects his director each :
year, the directors in turn selecting j
the chief selling agent.
Q. "Won't the selling agent bo a
A. No. He will be a man export ;
In the art of selling cotton-one who |
has the experience and Intelligence
in his line to get the true value for
all grades of cotton.
Q. "Why wouldn't it do to have a
farmer as selling agent?"
(A. Clarence Poe, of tho Progress
ive Farmer, says that one of the
North Carolina farmers who signed
tho contract answers it thus: "We
couldn't have a farmer to sell for us.
Ho would give lt. away, for ho has
been used to doing that all ids life."
Moro questions and answers next
week. Send in yours.
Sign he contract ns soon as you
aro ready, and help get others in.
