W.C. 1 J6 Public Spirit. Swift & Company, realizing fully of the Southern farmer, have adopted through their large fertilizer interests in the South a new plan to relieve the cotton situation . They are cer tainly doing their share in helping the South by their consumption of cot ton cloth Although already large users of cot ton, cotton seed oil and other south ern products, they are making this year a special effort to increase the use use of cotton goods in all departments of their numerious plants. Cotton. bags, cotton sheeting, aud cotton coverings for meats are being substituted wherever possible. An ordi nary year.s requirements for this firm amouuts to over ten million yards, and with their present "Help th2 South" policy their consumption of cotton goods will be largely increased. One item alone, that'of using cotton instead of jute tankage pre.-s cloths, has aided 300,000 yards to the Swift consumption. This is surely a shot in the right direction and one the South can fully appreciate. We hope that their initia tive will start a movement which will become even more beneficial than the "Buy a Bale of Cotton" propaganda.
