Mr. Leak Pronoun** questions
Mr. Editor: Will you allow me |
to ask a few questions on the cot
ton question? Who is forced to
plant cotton? Will you rent a
farm for any product of the farm
but cotton? Will you furnish
supplies for anything but cotton ? |
Will you sell fertilizer and "risk
getting your money if the buyer I
says he will plant no cotton? Can
you buy negroes, for you have to
buy them if you get them, and
make money and not raise cotton?!
Can you pay two hundred dollars!
for a mule, twenty-five dollars!
per ton for fertilizer and buy your
supplies and not raise cotton?)
Can you find a merchant that will
sell supplies to a renter who says
he will plant no cotton? Do you
know that we have labored for
thirty years to ioarn how to grow
cotton and have broke the record?
Can you find a boy on the farm
that is not an expert at raising
cotton? Can we niakejnegroes
rely on anything but cotton, so
long as they rent? Can you not
say to the man that would not
sell his cotton for ten cents, that
he coveted too much ? Will you
tell the man who said that he
would plant twenty per cent, less
cotton this year that his own
wife doesn't believe him and he
kinder doesn't believe himself?
Will you watch the man that is
howling so and see if he plants
any corn? Will you tell those
chaps Mie way to make people
believe there is a big cotton crop
is to do like he did this time?
tell everybody that he had ten
bales to the plow in the Ware
house, and was not half done
picking, and he heard a man say
he would make 40 bales to the
plow. lie sure to tell him to
pick out the best stalk of cotton
on his farm next August, bring
it to town and tell everybody that
is an average stalk and he thinks
I he will make two bales to the
acre.

The Goods
Tell The Story
Better Than Type.
As you know if you are a reader of THE HUB ads from week to week, this month is being de
voted to a good, rousing, thorough Clearance Sale of all remainders of Winter Goods. We'Jiave tried to
indicate to you, by printing examples of the actual prices, how great is the opportunity for picking up
really desirable things at a great deal less than they are genuinely worth; But we want to remind you
that the Goods themselves tell the story far better than type possibly can. The prices printed here can
give you only a very faint idea of the importance of the economies. Make a point of coming and seeing
for yourself. The object of printing these prices here is simply to give you some idea of the scope and im
portance of the Sale, and cannot post you one tenth part as well as a personal visit to the SALE.
