If he would follow the advice of the American Cotton As sociation, if he would plant fewer acres of cotton, use carefully selected seed and fertilize highly as He would increase his production of lint cotton per acre, thereby maintaining the standard of supplies, but reduc ing the net cost per pound; He would have left acreage on his farm to keep cows, to raise hogs, to grow fruits and vegetables and grains. These would feed his family and give him enough extra cash so that he could store his cotton in the system of warehouses advocated by the American Cotton Associa tion and get for it a fair and equitable price. This Rank, first, last and all the time, is for the American Cotton Association's program of better cotton, higher prices, diversified crops and more money for all! THE BANK OF UNION W. S.
