Notice to Cotton Planters. At the urgent request of the Executive Committee of the Southern^ Cotton Association*;* the farmers,-, merchants, bankers,-/ professional men'^andfall those interested in the futuVe^velte're' and prosperity of the South, are requested to meet at 2 p. m., Saturday, February 11th,,at their respective voting precincts and become members of this Association. You will there organize, by electing a President, Vice-President, Secretary and Treasures. The membership fee is 25 cents. You are also requested to elect three Representatives to your County Convention · which meets at your Court House at 2 p. m., Thursday, February 16th. These three Representatives are earnestly requested to -visit each and every farmer who does not attend the Precinct meetings, and secure pledges from them that they will reduce their acreage in cotton and fertilizers at least 25 per cent. Also induce them to join this Association. Collect also the following statistics from each farmer: ' First--The number of acres planted in cotton for' the year 1904. Second--The number of acres to be planted for the year 1905. Third--How much fertilizers used on cotton for the year 1904 and the amount proposed to be used for the year 1905. Fourth--The number of bales made for the year 1904. Fifth--Take the names of all persons who refuse to join this Association and, as nearly as possible ascertain the number of acres planted in cotton in 190,4 and the number of bales made by each. President Harvie Jordan has been requested to serid blanks for compiling these statistics to the Chancery Clerk of each county and also to the various newspapers published in each county; should they fail .to arrive others must be substituted. The County Conventions will meet on the 16th and will elect officers. The Precinct Treasurers will pay over to the County Treasurers all the funds cohV ted by them. The County Treasurers will pay over to the State Treasurer one half of all the funds collected, retaining the other half for use in the county.. You will at the .County Convention elect one Representitavc to the State Convention which meets at Jackson at 10 a. m , February 21st. The delegates in counties having two court houses may meet at Hot and Fresh Light Rolls and crisp, brown Cakes; Doughnuts that melt in your mouth and leave a joyful taste and a yearning for more; Pies of tha best and purest fruits and meats between crusts that are an invitation to the eyes and a satisfaction to the palate. Our Bread is light, wholesome and honest, is baked in clean pans, and is kept fresh. LAUREL the court house most convenient to them and may there, each elect a Representative win; will have one-half'vote in the State Convention. ';' Your "Executive Committee, through a sub-committee, are .formulating a plan to retire two million bales of the present crop. If you will co-operate with them and reduce your acreage and fertilizers as they suggest, they can assure you a u n i f o r m price of 10 cents for,the balance of this crop and for the crop of 1905. Every industry in the World is ! organized except the cotton farmer, and at this age of the world he can no longer stand alone. ' Organization with a reduction of 25 per cent, means prosperity; refuse' to do' this and you will bring ruin and misery throughout the entire South. This matter is now in your hands, and if each individual will take this matter to himself and feel that the success of this movement depends on his individual efforts, there can be but one result--one grand and glorious VICTORY.
