To this Mr. Hickman objected. Ifc

Shortly after that. Mr. Hickman
was requested to call a second meet

thought, would meet with his approval.
The meeting was called. It was then
proposed that the president of each

a committee th* complete pay roll of
his mill as u basis for a reduction.
Mr. Hickman stated that he had on
his desk the averages paid In each de

willing to submit. The other members
were welcome to use It as a basis for
any reduction they might choose to
make, but for his part he felt K his
duty to say that ho would not reduce
A motion to dissolve the Association
was theit made, seconded and carried.
The Association was dissolved.
Some time after that the former
members of the Association got togeth

He s.-.iil that, in the first place, his
mill was steadily earning Us regular
dividend ot' 10 per cent. There was a
great deal in economical management
and improved machinery. He had the
advantage of both. He did his own
buying and selling, and thus saved
