Farmers' Union Disposes of Cotton at Moderate Price. Twenty Four Cents a Pound. Regard less of Quality. Was tbe Price Paid ty Savannah Firm. One of the largest and most im portant cotton sales recorded in Alachua county for the season tr ins pired at Alachua two or three days ago, when the Farmers' Union sold to Savannah parties about four hun dred ha'es of the fleecy staple at a fiat price of 21 cents a pound. Withmi average weight of 390 pounds to the bale, it will readily be seen that this sale aggregated a con siderable sum probably 138,000 which was paid promptly by the buy ers, and which naturally meant a big thing for the grower and tbe mer. chant alike, and tie result is that tbe commercial interests of Alachua have been lively since tbe sulo was coni sumiiiated v . ... .. Tbe growers who hold merrlbeiship in the Farmers' Union have btten holding their cotton, through an un derstanding and Agreement, for better prices, and they were finally reward ed. There were three bidders from i he Savannah market,and fur a while bidding wns lively, but the staple was finally knocked down in a " unip" at 24 cents, raganlhss of quality. It was at flist agreed to sell five hundred bales, but several of the growers are snid to have "kicked out"' on account of price, hence the sale fell about one hundred bales short. While there have been several sales of consequence in Alachua tLis season, this was the first sale by members of the Farmers' Union, and the only one of surh immense pro portions, which is probably the most important sale of the season in the Sea Island cotton belt.
