“Cotton Not Behaving,” from the Pageland Journal and reprinted on the front page of the Monroe Journal on Aug. 4, 1916
The damage to cotton by the continued rains seems to be much greater in the sand than in the clay. Cotton is usually about matured in the sandy section by this time of the year, while August is the big month for cotton in the clay sections. It is not possible at this time to say what per cent of a crop will be made. Cotton has not behaved at all satisfactorily during the past few days.
