summer school closed
are having some heavy> rains which
may do the fall crops that farmers
are trying to grow some good. Don t
think it will do the first crop much
good. People were very busy gather-
ing their crops. The cotton crops
would soon have been gathered if the
rain had waited a few days longer.
It looks like it might be several days
before we can go back to picking cot-
ton again. iSome are gathering corn
and report it from sorry to nothing.
The corn crop will be very light.

Take Your Cotton to an Gin ♦ ♦
ALWAYS READY MAXIMUM TURNOUT BETTER SAMPLE MORE MONEY to YOU
The ELECTRIC Gin Assures You
BETTER SERVICE, SAMPLE
and MAXIMUM TURNOUT!
/Qotton authorities agree that the best sample and the best
C turnout are obtained when the gin saws are running at an even,
steady, constant speed., This cleans the seed thoroughly without
napping the sample. Electric gins give you this type of ginning,
with the smooth, steady operation of the electric motor.
When you take your cotton to a gin that uses electricity for
power, not only do you have assurance of a better sample and a
maximum turnout, which mean more dollars to you, but you also
avoid costly, irritating delays.
Regardless of the time, day or night, the electric gin is ready to
go. The ginner merely throws a switch and the strong, even-pulling
electric motors promptly put the gin in full speed. This is true in
the middle of the season when things are running to capacity as
well as early and late in the season when only a few bales come
The electric gin does not keep you waiting on the yard for a
fireman to get up steam or while the ginner is adjusting a carburetor,
inspecting nozzles or some other part of the engine. There are
no engines to break down from failure of burned out connecting
rods, bearings, cracked cylinder heads or whatnot. Just a switch
that can be thrown in a fraction of a second, and a continuous flow
of ample power is there until the yard is empty.
Electric gins are ready and waiting to gin your cotton on a
moment’s notice. Patronizie the ginner who has provided modern,
smooth, constant, steady-running electric motors to guarantee to
his customers the best ginning results. Electric gins are safe from
delays, accidents and other hazards.
