"In things essential, unity; in till tilings,
Grass is growing and crops
are flourishing and the farmer is
liable to forget evoiy thing ox-
copt the one thing of making this
crop just as good as possible.
And that is where wo farmors fail
as good business men. Let us
not forgot while wo aro making
this crop to, at the same time,
prepare to put it on the market
' at the best possible advantage.
t To do this wo need some place to
; store the surplus until suoh time
: that conditions are favorable to
put it on the market. Wo need,
j also, a place where we can bulk
our cotton so as to sell in fifty,
one hundred and one thousand
bulo 1 ots to the factories, thereby
saving the middleman's profit,
and give it. to the man who is
justly enti tied to it. To do these
things we need warehouses, and
to do them properly we must have
warehouses. There will be by
the beginning of the cotton sea-
son abouth three hundred such
warehouses in Texas. The Bart-
lett distoht has the matter in
chargo and it is proposed to
erect a warehouse either at Bart-
lett or Granger. Taylor did the
nice thing by the farmers and
' donated th e land and one third of
the cost of the erection. Gran-
ger has asked the committee to
meet with her business league

what Bartlett will do?
The committee will meet in
Bartlett next Saturday and it is
