F. Duckworth, of the Farmers' Union, has callen m?? the cotton price making meeking in Atlanta calle! for Angust 2nd.- Said ar.eeting to be called to commence in Texarkana, Arkansas, Ctn of September. Deceptive Growth of Cotton Stalk. From every quarter comes reports of the over growth of cotton stalks which experte know that thia extraor dinary large supply over production of stalk has been made at the expense of the fruiting poaibilities of the land. Therefore the nattering show of large stalks ia'some territories is very de ceptive sud may lead many to over estimate their crops. It is not stalks with forms 12 inches apart that counts, it io the thick set bolls from two to three inches apart on medium stalks that iudicstes a fine crop. The Rallying Firmer. We have before ns great stack? of newspapers and letters from all over every cotton State in the Sooth. A glance over the news from the cotton fields of the Sooth as written by the real farmer himself, ia very encourag ing, indeed, as to the determination of farmers, to come tog? her and take charge bf their own ai ire. In our sister State, Georgia, we note that they have now in the Farmers' Union over 45,000 members and they have jost began in earnest, and their meetings already published numbers for August. 72 different places. This educational campaign of the Farmers1 Union is now oo in earnest in ali tbe cotton States. These fermera have gone into line all over the cotton terri tory in. a systematic way that bids fair to create aomething like a real revolution in the management o? oar whole cotton intereste. From every State cornea the glorious newe of large enthusiastic meetings and the ; springing up of . Farmers' cotton warehouses in all the cotton States. The cotton farmers have stopped digging in the fields for awhile and are digging and throwing their fortifications ready to defend their in terest. ? The cotton farmer has learned to watch both the bunghole and tho spicket of hts business. He no longer continues to pour in the good stuff st the bunghole and never look ont for the leak at the spicket. The Farmers' Un iou man of today has been educa ted up to the point where be can un-( derstand that there is two important features of his busineos-one ia to pro duce good crops and the Other ia to get good prices for that good crop. Where ia the good of producing good crops, if the good crops bring to the farmer actually less money and profits than poor crops have ??nef The unorganised cotton farmers have for years been spreading before the cotton tradesmen arid speculators of the world a great and grand feast! while cotton growers themselves have uto od aro nod this festiva! table with a gag in thniy e?s SHratus piaoed mere by each other. . Farmers, will yon ever learn tho lesson, the ona most important lesson before yea-that if ever there ia any thing ??ne for the interest pf the far mere, -1 h at far m ero themselves must help each other! Never go about oa?v? luK io men in other occupations to help ypn when yod have not tried to help, you" own interest by joining with your fellow, craftsmen, your brother farmer. . * 9 .???...:. . . Crop liars and Cotton Repprt Leaks. They Won't Slick. A member of another Union while talking to a member ot mir Union a few days ago, said that ho wai afraid that the farmera wouln't atick after they had met aud put a pnce on their cotton. (Here, Brother Stribling, take a few drops of thia camphor. Maybe that will keep yon from "throwing up.") No "they won't stick " Now wasu't that fellow playing some aweet muaic, after knowing that cotton went from aoven cente to ten and a half io July, of the same ycart And didn't he know that our man knew that thia riae in the price waa brough* about by the farmera "a atickin' V Say, Colonel, ?on't " ou think you could cut the "doublt -?milla" after that fellow's music, whe J you remem ber that the Union met >t Texarkana, last September and p\* the price of eleven cente on their cotton and that standing shoulder to shoulder they are still getting that pricef Poor fellow, we don't know what impression he wanted to make on our man, bat the kind that ho did make was that a mem ber that ia always talking about the other fellow not sticking, is always the very first man to kick out of tue harness when things don't go to ploase Lim. Now, from what we cnn learn thia fellow has listened so mach to the man that don't belong to the Union, til) be ie not only real bilious, bat be ha? even caught, the "itch." So we would advise him to stay away from town, get oat of the Union for awhile, and take bia dues and get him a box of Fermera' Union Pills and take three after each meal, thereby getting bis atomach right. Also get a box of Far mers' Union Salve and give himself a good greasing and quit scratching so much in company, and when he is well of the above dise?aos let him go back to his Union and try and be a man. Oar Union met last Saturday even ing, the 21st and priced oar co tton, and now if the other Unions don't want oar price, just watch us stay by the price they set, first, last and all the time. W. L.

In a few davs the new Mayor and .men will assume the reins of the city government and immediately after ward will take place the election of a city attorney, city clerk, city engineer, chief of police and police officers, to ether with three drivers for the city re apparatus. It is the general belief that there will not be any contest over the filling of these positions by the in cumbents except possibly in the case of the members of the police force. There is always a lively scramble for posi tions in this department, and if reports are to be reliea on, the present election will prove no exception to the general rule. It may be that the office of sergeants will be created, thereby leaving a ranking officer in charge in the absence or the chief, as it is impossible for this officer to be en duty day and night. It ia presumed that Chief Murphy, with the other members of the force, will stand for re-election, as it is point ed out by the admirers of the present force that they are models of efficiency and eternal vigilance, but this counts for little in the eyes of the "outs" who want to become "ins," and they, too, have friends who are said to be urging their claims with unwonted vigor and earnestness. It is rumored that strong pressure will be brought to bear to encompass what is generally termed a general Shaking up in the police department with the view, as urged by the advocates of this meas ure, of combining physical, intellectual md moral qualifications in the selection ?f these guardians of the peace. It is suggested that the next year being a convention year in the city, will bring hundreds of visitors to Anderson, ana that the average visitor forms many impressions of a town's pride by the class of officers that are oftenest in the scrutiny of the public eye, and for this reason, among others, they desire that i police force be elected that will re ject credit upon the city in the eyes of visitors as well as to inspire pride on the part of homo folks. Their argu ment is a irood one. provided they will sack it up ny a cjass'of aspirants who will fill the 'requirements laid down foy them as it is claimed by them they will le. At any rate the fight promises to warm up and be lively between now ind the inauguration of the new city rovernment. News From Neighbo.ing To WES. (Monea Path Chronicle.) Mr. and Mrs. W.
