Other Cotton Centers-Hold! Columbia, S. C., 'May 27. Editor Keowoe Courier: Ou May 6th I left my office and started on my way to attend a Puro Food and Drug Convention to bo held in Galveston, Texas, on tho 8th, 9th, 10th and ll th. In order thal I might seo as much of tho present condition of tho crops as possible, from Now Orleans I went over tho Sunset Route to Houston, Texas, and In coming back I carno over the Southern Pacific railroad to Dallas and Port Worth. Prom Fort Worth I came over thc Texas Pacific by way of Little Rock, Ark.?^Memphis, Tenn., through northern Alabama by way of Birmingham and North Georgia lo Atlanta. These two routes carried j me over sonic of the best cotton land j in the following States: The Pied mont belt of South Carolina and1 Georgia on by Montgomery and Mo bile, Ala. From New Orleans I went' through Lo '?siana Into Texas. Oui my return trip l came through Ar kansas and Tonnesses. 1 saw men from every section of the cotton belt, so 1 got direct and positive facts in regard to each section of thc great Slate of Texas. In South Texas, where the cotton \s now fruiting, the boll weevil is reported in greater numbers than ever before at this season of tho year and doing greater damage, as the winter was so warm that great num bers came through In active condi tion. In West Texas we hear a great deal of dope put out by the boar speculators stating what a line pros pect they have there. On the 16th of this month they had one of the worst storms that had ever been known in that section. All tho low lands were overflowed and tho worst hail storm that over visited that sec tion were among their disasters. It was reported that at least 30,000 acres of cotton was damaged. Prom Houston to Fort Worth, a distance of 300 miles, 1 traveled In the daylight. That was on Hie 18th. 1 crossed four rivers on that trip, and each was out of its banks, tho waters portion of this land will not bo plant ed this year. If thoy have any more rain It could not bo planted before tho early days of June. On my arrival in Dallas I called at tho Federal iFarm Bureau office, which is located there, handling the Co-operative Marketing Association of farm products. I saw the presi dent, Mr. Orr. I found him to be a very pleasant gentloman and well in formed as to crop conditions. I ask ed him what proportion of the Texas crop was to be planted and to bo planted over. Ho said that at least 50 per cent of tho crop up to tho 18th of this month (May), taking tho flooded districts into considera tion, was ye; ;o plant, and from what i could see 1 t link ho was about cor rect. I saw a great many good farmers, also business men and some bankers, who have lived in Texas for forty years, and they havo kept in close touch with agricultural conditions. They all said Texas has tho poorest prospect for a crop lo this date they had seen in forty years, and they could not make anything like an av erago crop this year owing to the lilencss of the planting and exces sive floods and cold, rainy weather. I saw some good cotton dealers who don't hesitate to say that with ideal seasons from now on "wo cannot make over eight and a half to nine million bales this year." Now, as to acroago, if it had not been for the floods and heavy rains, Texas would havo increased IB per cent in acroago, but on account of tho floods she will not moro than duplicate her 1921 acreage, and I doubt if s'ne does thal. Arkansas can not increase on account of Hie same conditions existing In that State. The only states increasing in acroago aro Oklahoma nnd North Carolina. Tak ing tho cotton bell as a whole, Hiere will ho no increase in acreage this year. I rallier believe there will bo a decrease in tho acreage. I have said all tho time that we were going to see cotton very much higher, nnd that In 102.3 wo would see cotton highor than it sold for in 1919. I am still of that opinion. We now have a real world famine in cotton-tho world is nearly naked. No ono hus had anything Uko as many cotton goods as they neod, and the world is now beginning to got uneasy ns to whore tho cotton fabric is to como from to clothe it with. 'Evory yard of cotton goods you buy now you pay on a basis of 35 cents a pound for cotton, and from this dato on you will soo a material riso in price. 'Don't sell a halo unless you havo to. ? re?oive many letters al most every day now stating Hint tho boll weevil Is sucking Hie bud of tho cotton. 1 wnnt to urge tho farmers to plant a row of corn ovory eight foot across tho cotton rows. And romemhor to lot this year bo ono that you raiso overything you neod on your farm for homo consumption, and bo suro to keep out of debt. Lot tho halo of cotton you moko this year bo yours and sell lt whon you got ready. My prediction is high cotton for tho 1922 crop. I want to say that the SENECA SCHOOLS HAVE CLOSED.
