Corporal Tanner Talk.s
There have been several estimates

The reporter approached the great

saw from a distance that Tanner was
a man of vast consequence. The sub

and made but few mistakes. 1 can

this as a compliment. Had I been

Corporal Tanner looked into a

An Unwise Resolution.
A resolution was adopted by the
recent State Alliance convention, not
to sell cotton for loss than twelve and
one-half cents per pound. This ap

It is right that the farmers should
get the highest price possible for cot

rights to say that he shall not take less
than a certain price lor what is clearly
his own property.
Such resolutions arc sure to be bro
