Cotton Business Picking Up
The cotton business and market
is surely showing signs of com-
plete recovery and the prevailing
price this week has been very en-
couraging to all. Saturday was a
big day in the market and at the
yard. Weigher W. J. Purnell and
Booker Claude Perkins were busy
from morning 'til night, weighing
over two hundred bales. Most of
the cotton was sold at i cents and
brought the fanners a very good
price. Close to 250 bales were mar-
keted here Saturday which goes to
show that Lexington is rapidly
coming i^Vto her own as a cotton
marketing point. Both the Anti-
Trust and Farmers gins have been
turning out right at one hundred
bales a day. Mr. Purnell
