BIG DEAL IN COTTON.
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
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
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. Gainesville
