Cotton Seed Price
For the past fifteen years I hate
atched the seed market with some
merest. In February 1920 the gin
mpany paid me $1.25 per bushei
r seed or $83.00 per ton for the
1 mill. The government had set a
.nimum price of $1.00 per bushel
ow it works out this way, on Sep
nber the first the farmers have
1 the seed, the mills have a few
: If-rot ten hulls and a little meal
i hand. The price of meal and
"ills is put down to the very low
t. and of course that automati
•.Uy sets the price of seed. A lit
- later when the mills get most
the seed the price is moved up.
::n they get the remainder at the
'P price. Then the price of meal
id hulls is moved up to the top
otch. The oil mills have it all
ow. and the farmers have a few
Often seed left. The farmer may
may not have gotten a fair ex
•ange for his seed, but never a
ord did he say in fixing the price
f cither meal, seed or hulls Now
want to know who is tire goat, if
isn't the farmer then it must be
se consuming public, for H surely
’i t be the mills?
At the present price of seed we
hould use acid phosphate and turn
’em into a high grade fertilizer at
’.e-fourth the cost of the corumer
:.] brand. Fine for wheat and ex
ra good for com, oats and potatoes
et's let the fertilizer company's
jst one year. They need it Sack
our seed and keep they, you may
"V $2.00 a bushel for them yet.

To Stand Ground
Governor Gardner, we learn, is
still being strongly urged to call a
special session of the Legislature
to deal with the cotton Question. It
is earnestly to be hoped that he
.stands his ground uncompromising
ly in refusing to take that step
'Jhere is nothing helpful that the
Legislature can do about the matter
Passing silly laws that will be un
compromisingly in refusing to take
that step. There is nothing helpful
that the legislature can do about
the matter. Passing silly laws that
will be unsound, impractical, un
workable and unenforceable will
result in nothing more constructive
than an addition to the piles of
statutes already on the books to
which the people pay no attention.
More than that, it is dangerous
to have that body come back to Ra
leigh. It might get sidetracked
from the primary purpose for which
it would be called and get started
off on the wrong foot toward some
other legislation that would be in
defensible at this time.
Too many people are dissatisfied
with what the regular session did
in reference to taxation and schools
to obviate entirely the danger that
somebody might want to start some
thing over these questions and an
other interminable row develop.
Most troubles are said to be ima
ginary; £0 are most pleasures.
