cardinal points, which confront the
cotton growers of this section, to-
wit: the difficulty of marketing the
crop so as not to disturb the present
prices; and the abnormal and precar precarious
ious precarious conditions of labor. ; He advo advocated
cated advocated a closer co-operation of the
growers and the fixing of wages for
the picking of cotton to be' adhered
to by all. IU invited the attention of
those present to" the general movement-
throughout the cotton-growing
states of a plari by which the farmers
are to withhold a part of their cotton
and not congest the market by sell selling
ing selling as fast as picked. A letter from b.
larere cotton brokerage concern of
Jacksonville Was read" by Mr. Mayo
suggesting that the growers, be in induced
duced induced to gin two bales out of every
three only, holding the other bale
in the seed in order not to have the
cotton reports show their holdings as
"cotton on hand or in sight." This
letter also brought out the startling
information that there were over 22r
000 bales of long staple cotton now
in the hands -of the spinners, and in
excess of 35000 bales being at pres
ent held by brokers and ginners. Mr.
Mayo reminded the growers that this
year the government was going to
practically assume control of all the
gins and that he had already been in informed
formed informed that not only does the gov
ernment demand that a ginner use
modern machinery and every means
at their command to gin the cotton
in an efficient end careful manner, but
the government, he said, also insists
that the cotton be free from dust
and trash. Mr. Mayo explained that
no matter how untiring might be the
efforts of the ginners and no matter
what care they might take in ginning,
they could not make the best grades
of cotton if it was carelessly gather gathered
ed gathered and full of foreign substances, and
thereby comply with the govern government's
ment's government's request, unless the growers
exercised greatest care, and attention
in having the crops picked to avoid
the oossibilitv of all trash and dirt.
Mr. Raiford Simmons of Ocala next
addressed the meeting and interested
the growers by giving them an in insight
sight insight into the vicissitudes of cotton
growing by illustrating his own per personal
sonal personal experience of years as a cotton
erower which besran vhen he was
ten years old in the gold old state of
Georgia. He spoke of his struggles
and failures which was finally follow
ed by a successful "coming back" and
making good. He urged the growers
to stands together, hold their crops
and not to invite competitive bidding
for each other's hands to v pick the
cotton and thereby demoralize the al already
ready already unusual labor difficulties. He
warned them all to remember that
we were in a great world-wide war
and that it was incumbent upon each
individual to do his bit.
The secretary then read an inter interesting
esting interesting article from the Statesboro,
Ga, Bulloch Times, entitled, "Farm "Farmers

Prices May be Held Up if the Farmer
Will Exercise His Judgment in Mar Marketing."

Atlanta, Ga., July 8. The most im important
portant important point in the plan outlined by
the cotton states official advisory
marketing ..board, at the recent New
Orleans meeting, for the gradual
marketing of the 1918 crop, as point pointed
ed pointed out by Commissioner of Agricul Agriculture
ture Agriculture J. J. Brown, is this: "The cot
ton producers in each of the cotton j
growing states are to be urged not to
market more than 20 per cent of
their crop in any one months and to
hofd over for twelve months, or until
such time as the war is terminated,
or shipping facilities are ample to
move the surplus freely, one bale out
of every three." ; ;
That is the gist of the whole thing,
toward the success of which every everything
thing everything else is, to contribute. Every
bale of the 1918 crop will be needed.

A DOLLAR WASTED HELPS THE ENEMY
That is not a loyal thing to do, of course, and few of us realize
that we are helping the enemy when we waste money. Pretty hard
to define what waste is. One man's waste may be another man's
economy. In a general way, waste in war time may be defined as the
buying of anything net essential to health, and efficiency. Every
dollar one spends for unnecessary things commands goods and ser services,
vices, services, that is, labor and materials, needed by the United States Gov Government
ernment Government for war purposes. And, if you invest the money you save
in War Savings Stamps, you are again helping by loaning your mon money
