Ton thousand South Carolina fra mers are now bringing In cotton to the Cotton Growers' Co-operativo Association. One hundred and fifty tfiousnnd farmers in tho South oro marketing cotton on tho saiAc co operative system this year. Unfriendly interests, chief among whom aro tho gamblers and specu lators who fattened on Gio farmer's lack of marketing knowledge, will go ao any length this season lo make 'weak kneed" members break their contracts. Loyal members must al ways bo on guard against such at tempts and traco all disloyal talk to its prpper source. All now cotton belonging to members must bo de livered to tho association, for tho \ontracts must bo rigidly enforced if tho association is to live up to Its high Ideals. Any misinformed or dis loyal member had better think sov ertu times before he violates his legal and binding contract which lies him 9; i th his fellow-farmers. Th reo far mers who recently broke their con tracts with tho Tobacco Growers' Association aro soon to be hailed Into court and their prosecution led by nono other than Aaron Saplro, noted co-oporatlvo marketing a'ttorncy, of VfCalifornla. This moans that thoy will got tho limit allowed by tho .law "United wo stick; divided we're stuck." Cotton ls being rocoived In Oconoo as follows: In Westminster, by I. S. Pitts. ^ In Soncca at Nimmons' warehouse. In Walhalla, at Pitchford's ware house. Tho cotton is weighed at thseo points. Tho grower is givon two wo! ghi certificates showing tho j^iarks used on tho bales, eic. If no money is to bo drawn on tho association, tho growor acts as fol lows (whero s tor od tn warohouso) Koopa one woiglit sheet; attaches OJIO 'weight shoot- to warohouso receipt and malls in to tho association at Columbia.

This noto tho association gilvos will counterbalance tho inter est that ls charged members, so that the grower who docstnot borrow will havo no Interest to pay. In tho'other caso, whoro grower does want, monoy advancod, ho koopa ono weight certificate, attaches ono j^olght certificate to warohouso re celpt, or bill of lading ns tho caao may bo, and attaches thoao to tho nssoclatlon's draft, taking thom to his bank for payment, lt ls very Important that tho growor MAIL to headquarters, With i|out dolay, the original bill of lading and weight shoot, In tho enso whoro ho ships and whoro no money is drawn on tho association. In this caso, whoro thoro ls only a recolvlng station,* lt ls vory Important that this ^bo dono, as tho cotton cannot bo un "loaded from tho car without the bill of lading, and thoro will be demur rage to pay.
