Tho Time is Here.
Meetings hold at various places
over tho county have shown that a
large number of farmers wish to soil
their cotton intelligently. The first
intelligent plan of selling ever pre
sented to farmers is the contract on
the California or Oklahoma system.
Members of the association in Texas
claim that they are receiving from'
$10 to $15 more per bale for cotton
of the same grade and staple than
outsiders aro rocolving. Practically
every 'Stato In tho South has elthor
completed the sign-up campaign or

Over 40,000 halos are now signed
in our State, and contracts ^re com

county has started the campaign.

Ex-Senator Butlor, of North enro
llan, (Jives Strong Argument.
Writing in the Progressive Far
mer of recent dato, Ex-Senator Mar
lon Butler answers tho question,
"What's the matter with the farmer?
Why Isn't he more prosperous?" His
artlclo follows:
"The basic trouble ls the sys
tem which forces the farmer to
sell his products at wholesale and
at prlcos fixed by tho man to whom
he sells; and which, at the same
time, forces him to buy hts sup
plies at retail, and nt prices fixed
by the man from whom ho buys.
Being forced to sell in his indi
vidual capacity, and in direct com
petition with all other producers,
he rushes upon the market his
whole crop at once,while- tho world
is ??ot ready to buy at once this
who'o cop, which it will take the
world a whole year to consume.
This wast?fiil and unscientific
mt ?'.od of marketing nullifies the
lavs of supply and demand.
"Thus, a great horde of specu
lates haN sprung up, that have
organized to buy at sacrifice sales;
tht-.v ofter the farmer the lowest
possible starvation price, and, in
tur< they charge the great, un
orgauized consuming class a prlc^
many times higher--indeed, Just

This ls the only way to remove
