There now seems to be little
j doubt but that the farmers are
resolved as far as possible to hold
| their surplus cotton. While farm-
ers may obtain loans on cotton
! stored, it would be far better for
: the farmer if he is able to assume
| all risk and keep it at home and
j hold it away from points of con-
jeentration. However, all hold-
ing is vain unleil there is a re-
duction of acreage, and there is
I no hiding the acreage when re-
