will be nearer a true estimate.
This limit would be assurance
that the price would tend to rise
rather than fall.

Fayettevule Observer: The
cotton crop in Cumberland coun
ty is estimated to be not over 65
per cent, of an average crop, and
from all accounts we take it that
this is about the general average
throughout the country. By the
way, we heard a manufacturer
oay this morning that he is now,
and will hereafter, buy cotton
from tiie farmers, to be paid on
call, at the market price at the
time. This will be a great sav
mg to farmers who desire to
nold their cotton for higher
price . as it will relieve them of
storage and insurance, while the
mill man will lose-nothing, as he
will use the cotton as, if he thinks
prices are going up, he can
easily hedge on futures.
