Reports covering a period up to September 10th. showed Baldwin ;ounty far in the rear in number of isles of cotton ginned when com pared to the number ginner for a similar >eriod in 1927. 185 bales been ginned to date in com parison to 2,826 fo rthe same period lart year. The reports disclose the fact that the Baldwin cotton crop will fall .•eral thousand bales Bhort of last year and will be the smallest in the history of the county. Predictions had gone out that the crop would hardly equal half of last year’s pro duction, the continued heavy rains coming during year had prati- cally wrecked the entire output. D. Stentbridge, cotton enum erator for Baldwi ncounty .has made reports to the Department of Cf I merce. Gins in the county have only operated part time and is expected that their season will be unusually short. The cotton that is now being brought to market has been badly damaged while it is believed that all cotton picked from now until the end of the harvest will bring a great er price -and help boost thc market. Agent E. A. Smith stated that the crop this year would be late and that he believed that many bales would be brought within thc few weeks, and while the figures indicate a great decrease in tne pro duction that the outlook for the next month Is somewhat brighter.
