'Who will bo the next?
The other day, in talking to one of
our farmer friends concerning the
signing of a contract for tho salo of
his cotton under the co-operative salo
method, ho asked us, "Why should I
.sign away my cotton? 1 prefer to do
vis J plcaso with it."
And this was . good farmer, loo.
He was just mistaken-ho misunder
stood tho situation and did not grasp
tho full meaning and pur poso of this
co-operative selling movement.
And Wo scarcely blaine him for his
attitude. AU those years he bas been
helpless when it came lo Kelling ins
cotton, Ho has sold at prices that
were far below the actual worth of
the staple. He bad (o soil it at what
he could get for it regardless of its
commercial value. And ho has como
:.o regard everybody who approaches
him in regard to cotton as a person
seeking to got his money crop for
less than it is worth. Ho lias lost
I confidence in his fellow-man-and
i by no means without cause. Ho re
gards tho man who talks co-opera
tive selling as ono of thoso wiio aro
out to "?lo him good" and proper,
; instead of ono seeking to impress
upon bim tho fact that the co-opera
tive plan of marketing is hoing ad
, voca ted by real friends of the farmer
; in order that real and lasting good
I may be done for him.
? And that is about all the differ
j once (lune is between tim old system
i of selling and tim now co-operative
[system-tho old system made it pos
sible for the buyer and speculator to
I "do you good," whilo tho now sys
? tem makes it possible for you and
I your fellow-farmers to co-operato for
the common good of all. That's tho
I only difference, and it is all tho dif
ference in tho world; as much differ
ence as between good and ovil; as
between night and day; as between
right and wrong; as between good
judgment and absolute folly.
There are but a few days left to
think over this co-operative selling
proposition, Think fast-and think
right-and before the llrst day of
May sholl have dawned upon us your
name will he found subscribed at ibo
rot tom ot* one of tho co-operative
selling contracts, .lust remember that
liiere are but a few days left in which
to join in this groat movement; and;
if next fall yon find yourself selling
your cotton individually at a lower
price than your neighbor who signed
a contract gets for his, you will have
only yourself to blame.
Wo wisli that we had cotton to
sell. If we had, every pound of it
would bo listed for sale by the co
operative method. That is how much
confidence we have in tho system, in
its effectiveness and In its righteous
ness-no more, no tess.
