Editor Koo wee urier: Since you .so kindly published my recent letter, I am tempted to try it again, as you know Lt is human na ture lo enjoy blowing one's own horn onco in a -hilo, and ! will ad mit that 1 secure a groat deal of en joyment from seeing my name in print, whether any one else does or j not. And then J did have the satis-' faction of knowing that at least one good citizen of Oconee county en joyed my letter, and would like to have moro good lotters, as ho so very kindly expressed it. I will return the compliment and say that 1 enjoyed his letter, and will say that it con tained more good, sound common sense than any article 1 have read in a long time. If the farmers would only take Mr. McDonald's advico and rnlso their own food and foodstuff for ?hpmcinivps and fond for Hie nnn produe'ji's, tho' (a'rmov hud the uou producei would both pro HI thereby, and tho cry ot hard limos would soon Ve u thing of ibo past. Tho way to get a good price for any commodity is to curtail tho pro duction. Just as prohibition raised the price on moonshine corn liquor, so would tile production of all food and feedstuff nt homo help to raise the price on cotton and tobacco the farmers' money crops-because if the farmers raise all their feed stuff at home they will naturally have to redttco their acreage in cot ton and tobacco, which will shorten the production of those articles lo such an extent thal they will gol n fair price1 for what (hey do raise, and then they will have their own home raised food and will nol ho compelled to run in debi al limo prices, as is tho case now.

Hut first got your homo paid for and get it to running along in a smooth, business. liko manner hy raising your own food and somo to spare for your non-producing city cousins; and signing up with the co-operative marketing movement and pulling to gether with your neighbors to your mutual benefit -then will be the timo to begin planning to give your family and yourself some of the pleasures you so richly deserve. And while wo are speaking of au tomobiles I want to tell you of a conversation I overheard in a cafe ono day between tho proprietor and n traveling salesman. Tho traveling man said that ho would bo in sym pathy with the farmer hut for the fact thal during tho time that tho farmer was getting a good price for his cotton and tobacco ho went and bought Ford automobiles instead of laying up for the hard times that were coming. And the proprietor of the cafo said yes, that it did not make any difference with tho farmer whethor he got anything for his pro ducts or not, as ho did not havo senso enough to enjoy lt. I know that tho proprietor hod a big, nico car of his own, as I was personally acquainted with him, and I guess that tho traveling man had one, too, ns most of them do, so I had to butt In on their conversation with tho question If they did not think that tho farmor, who foods and clothes ie wife of only Jf years' ex td to find that irs can cook re use Royal Mrs. J. L.

If there has to bo a j di fte renco it seems to mo th.it it j would bo nothing but fair and just j to lei tho farmer ride in tho 1/ ; car ! and make tho middle-man walk, t?nt ; thc fact remains that there was lot of truth in their statements titler nil, as wo all know a lot of farmer.-; did bay automobiles and other things - . luxuries-before they were able to alford them, and now they are suf fering from their over-con fidonco that good limes had como lo stay. Silt there is an old saying that there is nothing so bad that ever happons but that some good will come from it, and 1 have come to believe it. So, perhaps, this period of hard times will teach us a lesson and show us that if we want to be successful wo must be more economical until such limo as wo know beyond a doubt that we can afford tho luxuries that wo know we aro entitled *.o. Perhaps it will bo the means of bringing the farmers together in one big union, I where li will !>??

Almost every other class of working peoplo havo organized to their mutual bonefit. Tho merchants, bankers, manufacturers and owners of all big industries have their or ganizations. Why? Because they know that in union there is strength -as individuals wo havo to take what ls offered or doled out to us, and pay tho price that is asked of us. As a unit, in one big organiza tion, we can demand a fair, price for nur products and got it. And tho way to got Into this big organiza- j lion is to get. out and work for it. ! Don't sit down and say. "Well, I will lot the other fellow do all the work and the talking and organiz ing, and If there is any benefit to bo derived fruin ll, l will profil by it as much as tho other fellow. And don't think thai by just simply signing your name on the dotted lino and taking the obligation that there is nothing else for you to do. You must work for it and talk for it; got up somo enthusiasm over it, and get your neighbors enthused over it. That is the way to make a success of lt. If you want to raise a good crop, you do not just go out and run off your rows and put tho seed in tho ground, and sit back and watch tho stuff grow. If you do you will be badly disappointed in the fall. And so it. is with any kind of business or organization. If wo want to make a success wo must work and plan for it in order that lt will go forward instead of backward. And a good farmers' union and co-operative as sociation for marketing is so neces sary to tho best Interests of the far mers, as well as the balance of the world, that wo should spend the time and energy needed unsparingly MOTH Flt!

Mr. Al enxader viewed tho operation from his nearby hostelry. Probably there Hashed through his mind visions of those boyhood days In tho dear old "So'th Caraliner," when he totod a nasty axe and cut wood by the cord. Anyhow, to make n long story short, he solicited tho use of ono of tho axes. Quiet pedestrians were startled by the fusillade of blows that were rained upon tho treo's trunk. Thoy looked, and Mr. Alexander was per forming moro gymnastics with that axe than a monkey could have exe cuted on 100 feet of grape vine. For almost two full minutes tho chips flew Uko chaff from a threshing ma chine. Mr. Alexander continued un til ho saw tho other choppors turn ing green with envy, and after 120 j sconds of arduous toll ho reluctantly 1 surrendered tho axe.
