leaders backing up the senator's
contention that President Wilson

own veracity had been attacked by
the White House, in declaring the

DO YOU CARE, MR. FARMER?
Monday we showed where cotton was sold in the seed at a difference
of $9.75 a bale in towns less than fifty miles apart.
Every farmer knows that this difference in prices should not exist.
There is something wrong when ten dollars less is paid on a bale of
cotton of the same quality.
The only way that the farmer can know about such wide range of
prices is through the press. We have here a blank for the purpose of as
sisting the farmer in keeping in touch with prices <*er the stan It yot
sold a bale of cotton or other farm products please fill in this blank anc
