The Great Cry from the Cotton World Is for The Neely Cotton
IT IS A CENTURY OLD CRY
Every single cotton field of Dixie?every one of thc twenty
eight thousand cotton ginneries scattered throughout the South?
every bale of cotton that linds its way to the markets and mills of
the world, calls loudly for the marketing of th* Neely Cotton
1 he cry is a century old one. It has been growing louder
with each year.
THL OLD STYLE COTTON BALE.
LOOK AT THE ABOVE BALE ~
Notice how large and bulky it is. Observe its torn and
mutilated condition. Think of the needless freight it costs,
its liability to tire, the high insurance rate that it takes, and then
figure for yourself how great the demand for a bale such as the
Neely Compress puts up really is!
* WHAT THE NEELY COMPRESS DOES
lt makes it possible for the small ginnery to put up a neat, compact, rec?
tangular bale of cotton, size only 24x30x40 inches.
It saves the trouble, work and expense of re-baling or re-compressing the
cotton. Because the present way is for the farmer to haul his cotton to the
ginnery, have it put in bales requiring four times the room in cars that they
should. Then these bales are freighted to the nearest trust owned compress
and reduced in size one-half. They then occupy twice as much room as a
The Neely Compress makes a bale that is ready to ship to England. It
makes a bale that coats less freight, less insurance. It makes a bale that reaches
the mills in perfect condition.
It saves the farmers thousands of dollars; it saves the spinners thousands of
$750 PROFIT ON EVERY NEELY COMPRESS
To-day there is a demand for twenty-eight thousand Neely Compresses.
In le^s than ten years there will be a demand for almost double that number.
These machines can be made and sold for 81,500, at a profit of $750.
