Buy at Home; Georgia Products
There has been so much talk about practicing economy by buying at home, using Georgia
products, thereby creating a home market for your grains, etc., we beg to advise that we are in po
sition to furnish you with one of the best balanced feeds on the market, made from home-grown
products. If your merchant does not handle our feed you can buy direct from us at following
prices— McBride’s Ground Grain Molasses Feed, $1.60 per 100 pounds.
McBride’s Alfalfa Molasses Feed - - - $1.70 per 100 pounds.
The analysis of our ground feed is as follows: Protein, 9.29; fat, 3.78; fiber, 5.80; carbohydrates, 61.17.
cent, of fiber (fiber is filler) in our feed and compare with some of the other feeds offered for sale.
Why throw away 30 per cent, of your feed when you can bring your corn to us in shuck and after all
(you furnishing bags) you will have 2 1 per cent, more and better feed. This feed will contain molasses to make it dustless and
well balanced lor hard worked stock. If you will stop and consider what your feed is costing you, basing corn at $1 per
bushel, you will find that you are paying $35.72 per ton. Oats at 75c per bushel, you are paying $46.87 per ton. By having
it ground it will reduce the price $6.54 per ton and in addition have a much better feed. Won’t this saving of $6.54 per ton be
good pay lor bringing 25 bushels of corn to us for grinding into feed? For your information we give analysis of cobs and
shucks after being ground: Cobs, protein 2.4, fat .5, carbohydrates 54.9. Shucks, protein 2.5, fat .7, carbohydrates 28.3. This
is also a very superior feed for dairy cows.
When you harvest your oats don’t thresh them, but have them ground, straw and all, into feed. This will save the expense
of threshing. You can cut your oats high, leaving a high stubble lor improvement of your land and at same time reduce the
straw which will improve the feed. This with molasses will make an ideal feed for your stock. This is an age lor economy, and
Note the low per
expenses are paid
by utilizing all your products you will solve the feed problem.
Yours very truly,
McBride Grain and Feed Co.

Trying to Fool the Fanner.
The recent rise in cotton on the New
York exchange, with corresponding
slight advances in the spot markets
throughout the South, is the most sus
picious occurrence noted in months.
The sinister angle of it is that this ad
vance comes just before the Southern
farmer i3 getting ready to pitch hiB
There is no real reason or excuse for
cotton going up. Rather, it ought to be
going d’ wn and hitting low levels now,
with millions of bales unsold and with
no prospect of being sold. I idustrial
conditioiic are such that spot cotton
cannot be in any great demand any
where. England and the United States
are alone in the manufacture of cotton
goods in the entire world at this time
and England is buying far far below
her usual amount In all rhyme and
reaso:,, as the time for the new crop ap

ton were determined at this time on its
actual v..!u“ according to the law of
supply and demand, it should he selling

There is only one explanation of this
mys.tf-ry, which is no mystery to the
man who knows markets, and that is a
simple one. There can be no doubt but
that the price is • nine deliberately in
flated or, it x •hang- ck-d by the
big spinning n' po ’ UM g interests,
just when the Urm-r getting ready
to lay out his land for planting, so that
increased acreage may be stimulated.
If the spinners and speculators —the
latter of the sort who can buy cotton
and hold it indefinitely—can get even a
ten-miilion-bale crop from the South
this year, cotton will go to four and
five cents next October. And it won’t
get stronger for some time afterward,
war or no war. Here will come the
opportunity for the spinner and the
spinner’s huying agent to lay in cotton
at about one-third a fair price for it,
and enough of it to keep the mills run
ning long enough to declare enormous
They are trying to goldbrick and
humbug the farmer. It has been often
done from New York. Every time
there seems to be an indication of
acreage reduction along comes the
New York exchange just before plant
ing time and Bends the price up a few
notches through the simple expedient
of its members huying and Relllng from
each other in public, with more huying
than selling, and getting out from un
der after the exchange closes each day.
This is precisely what it is doing now.
Given the prospect, fictitious or other
wise, of enough price for cotton in the
fall to pay his debts, and the average
two-horse farmer, who produces nearly
all Lite cotton, will plant nothing else.
This is known by the spinners, for whose
benefit the cotton exchanges, in the
last analysis, are run. So we have
ten-cent cotton again at planting time.
Ten-cent cotton with the greatest
war in the world on—with millions of
halos unsold because there is no de
mand, or likelihood of a demand for the
staple—with the acreage reductionists
declaring that the prospects are, de
spite all their efforts, that too much
cotton is going to be planted this sum
mer again—with all these, cotton goes
to ten cents on future deliveries! Mar
Every farmer should be warned of
It is done Himply for its moral effect.
And it is having its effect. The Tele
graph learns that a good many farmers
huve perked up and fallen for the
“hunk” of the spinners. They are
talking already of going pretty well in
for a sizeable cotton crop.
It is utter foil} We have gotten
through thiB one winter. What an
other one like it will do no man can
say. It must not be. The cotton crop
must be slashed all to pieces this sum
mer, no matter to what attitude the
exchanges hoist future prices. Every
newspaper in the South should raise its
voice in decided warning—and raise it
loudly and long.
Max B. Wellborn, head of the At
lanta Federal Reserve Bank, who was
the honor guest at a banquet given by
the bankers of group three at the
Alabama Hotel, in Anniston, last week,
stated in an interview in his homo
paper that the increase in the price of
cotton within the past few weeks is due
to reduced sales of fertilizer, and the
expressed determination of the cotton
planters to curtail the acreage this
"While every man who is really con
cerned and interested in the welfare of
the South is delighted to Hee the value
of our great staple approaching nor
mal,” said Mr. Wellborn, “there is an
opportunity in the present favorable
condition for some of the planters to do
much harm by departing from their
formed determination to plant less cot
ton than in the past. The planters
have won a victory already,” continued
the banker, "in that they have slowly
forced the price of cotton up. The
price is still far below what it ought to
be, of course, hut it will continue to
rise juBt as surely as the planter ad
heres to the policy of curtailed acreage,
and puts into practice the doctrine of
diversified farming. I am a farmer
myself, and I will plant only fifty per
cent, of the acreage which I have in
the past given to cotton.”
Nothing So Good for a Cough 01 Cold

since my daughter, Ruth, was cured of
a severe cold and cough by Chamber

manufacturers of that preparation. I
know of nothing so quick to relieve a

Use of Cotton in War.
This interesting information concern
ing cotton and explosives comes by
way of the Philadelphia Record: "In
ordinary years the powder plants of
this country turn out 10,000,000 pounds
of smokeless powder, in the manufac
ture of which they would consume 20,-
000 bales of cotton lint. Owing to the
enormous demand for explosives in
Europe, the productive capacity of the
Dupont works alone has been increased
to 10 or 12 times the normal total capa
city of all American powder mills. Ger
many, France and Russia use cotton
lint almost exclusively in the produc
tion of their smokeless power; and, al
though the other nations employ picric
acid and coal-tur products in larger
measure, all UBe guncotton to some ex
tent. The estimate that 1,200,000 bales
of cotton will be turned into explosives
this year seems moderate. This may
explain the unexpectedly large export
demand, which will probably approxi
mate 7,500,000 or 8,000,000 bales, in
spile of the great curtailment in the
cotton manufacturing industries of
Europe consequent upon the war. The
fifty-seven warships in the Dardanelles
are ‘burning up cotton' at a monstrous
rate. A 12-inch gun uses 300 pounds
of powder per shot, and it is theoreti
cally possible for a battleship to use
from 5,000 to 0,000 pounds of powder
(or 10 to 12 bales of cotton) a minute
by firing all its guns.
