. IMPORTANT TO COTTON
Dear Mr. Editor:
I will thank you to give me e
nough space in your valuable pa
per to correct some errors that
seem to be among the farmers in
regard to Half and Half Short Sta
After making inquiry of several
of the farmers 1 find that a num
ber of them think the buyers in
Winder do not want the farmers
to plant Half and Half Cotton.
The article : pruning in your p.
per signed by the different cotton
buyers in Winder some time ago,
was justsimply a warning to the
fanners for their own good and 1
can assure the farmers every
where that a buyer simply buys
a bale of cotton for the small mar
was ;ust simply a warning t > the
of it,and had just as soon buy one
kind of cotton as another, provid
ed he can get it at its value, but
the value of Half and Half Short
staple, which is about five-eights
in length, is from $lO to $25 per
bale less than any of the big boll
cotton which pulls one to one and
one-sixteenth inch, and North (la.,
has the repub \on of rais : .\/ a
very fine grade of cotton which
pulls one to one and one-sixteenth
inch staple and is known the
word over; but since this Half
and Half has been introduced in
the past few years, complaints are
coming from all parts of the
world about this short inferior
staple and it is up to the farmers
whether this reputation shall be
restored or be black listed and
lost forever. .
1 voice not only the sentiment
of the Winder buyers, but of the
buyers of all North Georgia, and
k 1 trust this explanation will be sat
isfactory to all concerned.
Yours very truly,
J. M. WILLIAMS.
Daddy Broke His Face.
John was always an interested spec

morning the razor slipped and the skin
was cut a trifle, and John turned and
said regretfully to his mother, “Oh,
see, daddy did break his nice face."
GROWERS OF COTTON.
Daytona,, Fla., March 29.
Defending what he termed the
patriotic motives of the southern
cotton planters in their efforts to
maintain prices of the staple,
Richard 11. Edmonds, editor of
The Manufacturers Record, today
issued an open letter to Governor
Allen, of Kansas, criticizing the
governor’s statements concerning
economic forces influencing the
attitude of the cotton growers.
Governor Allen recently de
clined to attend a convention to
be held in Columbia, S. C., where
cotton producers are to discuss
ways and means for maintaining
prices. The governor said that
lie was not in sympathy with the
move to limit cotton acreage
while Kansas was planting more
wheat than ever.
Mr. Edmonds, in his letter,
“The only way in which it has
been possible for the south to
raise and sell cotton at the aver
age price of the last fifty years
without going into bankruptcy
was that the tenant farmers,
white and black,, and many of the
smaller land owners, have liadto
raise this crop by the work of
their wives and children. These
women should have been in their
homes and these children
should have been in school
The economic slavery fastened
upon the south by the world’s in
sistent demand for low price cot
ton and the world’s power to
break down the price of cotton
|Compelled these women and chil
dren to work in their cotton fields
in order to make out a hare exist
ence. If wheat growing in Kan
sas brought about this condition
upon the farmers of your state,
would you for a moment insist
that they should continue to pro
duce wheat when wheat produc
tion meant continued enslavement
of poverty and illiteracy?’’

HOG FEED TESTS FOR EXPE
MENT STATION AT GRIF
Announcement has just been
made by L. B. Jackson, director
of the state bureau of markets,
that the bureau has entered into
an agreement with the state expe
riment station at Grifin whereby a
series of tests will be conducted on
the feeding of hogs. The object
of the test is to determine the rel
ative value of various feeds as in
dicated by the quality of the meat
The method to be pursued is to
purchase about 80 pigs weighing
from (50 to 70 poundseach, divide
them into groups of ten and to
feedeach lot a distinct and differ
ent ration. The pigs will be kept
under observation with a view to
determining what class of feed
will produce the largest amount
of hard pork.
The result of the test will be an
nounced by the bureau and it is
expected that the farmers of the
state will he materially benefited

HOW CAN YOU TELL YOUR
As Plain as the Nose on Your
Face—Just Smell It
Smokers do not have to put tobacco
in their pipes to find out if they like it.
They can just rub the tobacco between
the palms of their hands and smell it.
The nose is ar. infallible guide to smok
All smoking tobaccos employ some
flavoring “to improve the flavour and
burning qualities of the leaves’’, to
quote the Encyclopaedia Britannica.
Naturally, there is considerable differ
ence in the hind of flavorings used, and
the nose quickly detects this difference.
TUXEDO Tobacco uses the purest,
most wholesome, and delicious of all
flavorings—chocolate. And the almost
universal liking for chocolate in a great
measure explains the widespread popu
larity of TUXEDO Tobacco.
Carefully aged, old Burley tobacco,
plus a dash of pure chocolate, gives
TUXEDO Tobacco a pure fragrance
your nose can quickly distinguish from
any other tobacco. Try it and see.
