The Stak'.s correspondent at Center writes us that the icreage cf cotton all orer his sec lion this year will be equal to, or greater than, that of last year. He explains that each farmer has heard of ths great movement to re duce the acreage all over the South and the farmer reasons that others will reduce the crop enough to raise the price and, if he raises a big crop he will reap a correspond ing btfifit, This is a sh'Wiighied policy i bui-ve are afraid it L jn. fluence planters . eye:ywherei if carried out, the cror of iij wjj eclipse all previous recorojs Speculators have alreu r.AVj the price of the next crop at 4 to 44 cents on the farm, and expe rience shows that they know more about it thai the planter who makes it or the merchant who buys it. If supply and demand don't justify their figures, they can to ? large extent control the market and force it down, this last being par tially the fault of the government in not enacting an anti-options law. Our farmers will and must look 1. .1 ... 1 ai uns matter m a Dusiness way. There is no prospect but that the price will range around four and five cents. If a farmer can raise it at a profit at those figures, all well and good; but, if he can not, every bale he makes is a positive loss, and he had better go at some thing else. In this connection it may be said that, if any man can make a profit out of four cent cot ton, it is the man who makes all his supplies at home. No, if the farmers increase the acreage of anything, we earnestly trust that it will be corn and not cotton. Kosciusko cordially invites all citizens of the county to join hands with her and share toe great benefits to be derived froia a cotton faitory. Subscriptions should he raised in every commu nity. The farmers are jest ''nterestcid in ta cottoa as in uch ictory as mr merchants. Kosciusko wan to :hem to stand by her aiad l:e'p put lp th money. RANDOM SUGGESTIONS. Now that there is a prospect that Kosciusko will soon 6tart out on a manufacturing career, all the people should give an impetus to the movement, not only for a cot ton factory, but for industries of all kinds. A most effective may to do this is to adopt more fully an intensive or selfish system of busi ness that is, lit the town and county sustain every industry, no matter how 6mall, 6tarted in our midst, to the exclusion of similar industries at a distance. Nothing should be bought at other places that can be bought here. No produce should be brought from a distance that is raised in sufficient quantities here. Nothing should sent away to be made that can . be made here. Home products and home people should'be given the preference in everything where there is no ques tion of quality or competency raised. For instance, suppose that all the wagons 6old in Attala county were the products of home indus tries. The patronage would soon build up a factory with improved machinery employing forty or fifty hands a day. We have a barrel factory and an axe handle factory in ithe county. They should have the entire pat ronage of the county as far as they are able to fill orders. All the potatoes, cabbage, on ions, etc., lcund in our grocery stores should be bought from our own farmers as long as they can supply the demand. Here is a little thing that was suggested to us the other day. Suppose that all our business men should have their trousers made at home, buying the cloth here. This little thing alone would afford cm p'oyment for a considerable tailor ing establishment composed of girls an.l women who would be glad to make them for a dollar a pair, or eve! less. And so it would go. Our people should stif k together anJ help oarh other. Money spent at home fyxls its way bprV tn th man who srient it; money spent abroad is forever gone. What helps one man or in dustry in a community helps the entire community. If we want to be prosperous, we must make everything here that we can mak i with a profit, buy as little as possible from a distance, keep money at home and keep it in circulation. IT'S A. GO. Tlie plans for a $100,000 cotton 1 iactory 111 a.osciusko arc now in such a shape that we believe if requires only persistent and intel ligent work to make the enterprise a certainty. Our people univer sally show a strong interest in the matter. Iney appear to mean . inisiness. iney nave the means and it rests only with them as to whether or net they will give the town and county a tremendous im petus in the direction of progress. Mr. W. B. Potts, one of leading- 1 1 business men, is president of the company, tt . , .1 . , He believes that there ..... is great possibility for profit in the iactory 11 it is manrged properly, Our people have great confidence l!i V.iq iiwlo-njwnf ',rA ... k.-.i: J O ' iv.HV -ii .

Tliey ,aro all greatly intere-ted, no doubt cveiy one of them will take a handfeme block of shares, and thay will in-flu-ince their rie:ic'.3 to do like wise. We believe the id.i is, r,nd it is a good die, to employ one or two The W. B. POTTS GO, FpaIs flint it good goods during the past year, and they are de termined to maintain their reputation. They buy 1 -. t J 1 I Jl A 1 everything m large quantities ana mereiorc at low figures, and their selling prices are unexcelled, quality of goods considered. Their grocery, cloth imr. dress ffoods. and general merchandise stocks o 7 O ' O are complete as before. Customers have a ctiy as sortment from which toselect. We are in the riim lor bargains lor competent men to canvass for sub scriptions. With all these forces at work, Kosciusko is bound to have a fac tory. Subscriptions to the cotton fac tory are not donations. Its man agement insures that stock in it will be as good an investment as there is in the State. One factory follows another. Kosciusko can, if she will, be a great manufacturing center. A TUIDUTE.
