FROM R. D. COTIRAN
Editor of The Mannin Times,
Manning, S. C.
My dear Editor:
Please give me space in your val
uable paper to get some tobacco
items before the farmers of our
I came to the tobacco city of Win
ston-Sa'em, N. C., about two months
ago, we are selling worlds of tobacco.
I am with the M. W. Norfleet To
," bacco Warehouse Co., in the capacity
auctioneer. These people own and
erate the Piedmont Warehouse,
vhich has forty-eight .lyousand feet
i of floor space. Winston s~
twenty four million pounds
bacco and the above named cone...
gets about half of what is sold here.
Tobacco prices are better than I
ever saw them before. Tobacco is
selling even better than it did in 1913.
The quality of tobacco isn't as good
as this section usually grows either,
this was caused by excessive rains
doing growing season.
I enjoy seeing the farmers wear
kl~the glad smile, these good old hon
est fellows that have toiled hard in
summers -sun, stand around and await
their chances at the check window,
where they frequently get three and
four hundred dollars for a two-horse
wagon load of tobacco, these fortu
nate boys get their pockets full of
twenty dollar "Woodrow Wilson"
bills, and when they return to their
good wives and daughters they car
ry new farm hats, dresses, etc., they
are receivgd with joy and glad smiles,
and their only regret is "John will
say to Mary, "wife I am sorry we
did- not plant more ' tobacco last
spring," and of course Mary said to
John, "I told you what to do and you
would not listen to me."
Boys, just a word more about Win
ston-Salem, this city is the home of
the greatest tobacco manufacturers
in the world and especially the R. J.
Reynolds Tobacco Company.
Only recently I went through his
factory, I visited the home of Prince
Albert smoking tobacco, the large
scale upon which this tobacco is man
ufactured is amazing. The machin
ery in this great factory perforn's
vith cupning, that almost surpasses
human ingenuity. R. J. Reynolds is
indeed a genius and he has revolu
tionized the tobacco manufacturers
industry. He now makes more ciga
rettes than are made in St. Louis.
He puts up Browns Mule and feeds
him well, Reynolds first found this
mule here, and named him Browns
Mule, and since then he has found
millions more of them, and has ship
ped them broadcast all over the coun
try, every farmer almost has plowed
with Browns Mule.
R. J. Reynolds ships a solid train
load of tobacco every day to different
parts of the United States.
Well so much for the preliminary
above, I want to get down to South
Caroina and Clarendon County in'
particular. As I see it 1917 is going

We are told that fortune knocks at
every mans door once in life. Let us
hope this will be true to a certain
extent in 1917. The world today is
consuming at a greater rate than it
is producing. Europe is taking all
oar exports she can get. A great
deal more of the products of Amer
ica in the shape of cotton, grains of
all kinds would go over if only Ger

This is the time that the Southern
and Western farmer should awake to
the true realization of their golden
opportunity, that old adage we all
know, "make hay while the sun
shines." The cost of living should
not bother the farmer, he first of all
should make special effort to make
himself self supporting, this can be
done by making what you must have
to live on at home. Every farmer
should make his living at home, if he
doesn't he is not making a success

Don't Fail to
Next year will be a good time to
raise grain crops, vegetable crops,
farm animals of all kinds and fowls.
Why; this country is now import
ing eggs from China. Just think of
it, when we should be exporters in
stead of importers. The blooming
Chinamen is digging up eggs buried
by his forefathers fifty years ago and
exporting\them tc the foreign devils
in America. The farrmer can put his
eggs up so they will keep just as
easy as he does vegetables. Most
any intelligent economist can tell you
how to do this.
Nineteen-seventeen will be an ideal
time for early truck patches, beans,
cucumbers, squash, etc., will bring
big moicy on Northern markets.
People are going to buy this kind of
truck to reduce the cost of living. If
things are in big demand now, should
they be in less demand next yeir,
when people will need them just as
much, as they do now?
This country certainly can not get
the cost of living reduced until we
have made enough for ourselves and
Europe too. See that you are a pro
ducer in the future, profit by what
you now see and know to be true.
We are to be congratulated upon
the re-election of Woodrow Wilson,
a man that has done more for the
agricultural class of people of this
country than all our presidents from
Father George Washington to Woo I
row Wilson's day. He has put the
country on a sound financial basis.
His mastery over Wall Street in nine
teen-fourteen, when he put a crimp
in the money panic, that the Wll
Street Leaches, were about to put n
the South and West, to prevent them
from getting money to handle the cot
ton of the South and the grain crops
of the West. I will mention only one
thing that he did that prevented this
and that was the establishing of the
Federal Reserve Bank. And Mr.
New York Banker unlike what he did
under a Republican administration
opened his money vaults to the South
ern and Western banker and said by
this "Wilson is for the American peo
ple." We find that he has more sense
than Teddy Roosevelt, and that we
can not bring a money panic as was
brought under our tool Mr. Roose
velt and the Republican administra
tion in 1907."
God Almighty has seen proper in
his providence to help the American
people beat this bunch of grafters
again in 1917.
Wilson's re-eiection is absolutely
unparalled in American history. We
fail to know of a man being elected
to the high office of President of the
United States of America, without
the sanction of New York, Pennsyl
vania, New Jersey and Illinois.
Wilson won in spite of Wall Street's

on the subject of prosperity of our
country without having mentioned
our great leader and benefactor.
Let us now get back to Clarendon
county as I have already stated above
try and make yourselves self sup
porting. Cultivate what tobacco and
cotton you can attend to after mak
ing something to live on. Tobacco
will sell high next year. I know of
no reason .to think otterwise.
Our tobacco in South Carolina is
being used by American manufactur
ers more now each year. You know
our crop heretofore, nas been always
largely export. But from the best
line I can get on the situation we
need not have any fear about prices
not being good.
I expect to see everything you
grow bring it's full value; I believe
you will have a banner year in 1917.
I am anxious to see a good bright
tobacco crop grown in oar county
next year. All colorly tobacco is
scarce in this crop.
Now friends what is first and fore
most in making a crop as outlined
above? I will say first the plant
lands. The plant sitantion cost
South Carolina possibly a million dol
lars or more this year. Be certain
and prepare your beds good this time
and avoid them being diestroyed as
they were in February of this year,
select new lands protected by wood
land from the North and West winds,
if you can. I think new lands re
quire less burning and will always
give a better result. Get land with
a medium moisture, not crawfishy or
too loamy, try and get a rather close
dark fine soil. -Be certain and cover
your land good and by all means do
not leave it unfonced as the cows and
hogs, when they are weeding it for
you, while you are fishing next spring
will destroy your plants.
I have seen so many beds destroy
ed in the last few years this way
until I am anxious for this to soak
in good, and hope in the meantime it
will save some farmer friends money.
Going back to the plant land be
sure and prepare your bed well be
fore sowing see]l. Use plenty of
stable manure and some fertilizer.
I will have tobacco .eed for free
distribution at the Home Hank and
Trust c.ompany. Watch this paper
for the announcements which will be
made later. I am going to have a
good tobacco seed this time grown in
the Piedmont section or North Caro
lina and will also have the Slate to
bacco in Old Virginia.
I am thoroughly interested in the
farming element of our county and
am only too glad to serve you any
way I can. Get your seed early this
time. Do as I have anvised you to
do and I really believe you will reap
a good harvest along all farm lines
in 1917. When you get your tobacco
bring it to the Central Warehouse
and let me sell it for you.
Thanking you for past patronage
and wishing you much success this
coming year I am your.thshrl chmrd
I am yours very truly,
R. D. Cothran.
