GRANDMA S VALENTINE.
I tried to find a valentine,
My grandma, dear, for you.
I took the train and paid my fare,
•Inst like the liig folks do.
I feel quite sure that everyone
Who goes down town, was there,
So I couldn't reach the counter
And couldn't find a chair.
I felt most like a man 'till then,
But, 1 just had to cry;
I knew you'd like the valentine
1 was too small to buy.
Then mama said, "I'll tell you what;
.lust j o yourself, my dear.
She'll take you for her valentine,"
And so, you see, 1 'm here,
—Mrs. W. A. Goodspeed.

In 11114 nearly 16,000,000
bales of cotton were raised in this
country —the largest crop of the
staple ever grown. The Europ-
ean war lias reduced the demand
both here and abroad, and at
least 4,000,000 bales will remain
unsold when the crop of 1!(15 is
ready for market. If the usual
acreage of cotton is planted
this year and the yield is fair,
the crop and that which is car-
ried over, will probably be twice
the quantity that can be used,
and next fall cotton will behard
to sell at 4 to 5 cents a pound.
A majority of the cotton grow-
ers raise cotton only, bn ing
their meat, flour, vege tames,
fruit and condensed milk for the
table and grain and hay to feed
their teams. In Texas alone
here are MOO,000 cotton growers j
who do not raise an acre of hay
or forage. Supplies are bought
on credit and paid for in the fall
by the sale of the cotton crop.
I'nder this system the cotton
grower is in debt the whole year
iround and his cotton pays for
food and feed already consumed
At the beginning of the past
year the usual time for arrang-
ing credits for the eoming 12
mouths, the cotton growers owe
for a large part of the supplies
they used in 11)14 and are with-
out funds to go ahead with the
year's work. The merchants are
carrying the enormous past due

A letter from Mrs. Myron Smith to
the Clipper states that they have had
a very pleasant winter and tha her
health continues very good. This will
lie interesting news for her many old
friends in Ilennesev.
Mr. and Mrs. John RatlitT and Mr.
and Mrs. Len. Hcrtwell autoed down
from Knid Sunday and spent the day
with friends and relatives in Hennes-
sey. Mr. RatlitT's many friends were
glad to see him apparently as well as
ever, despite his recent illness.
debts of the farmers and in turn
the merchants have been able to
pay only a part of what they owe
the bankers and jobbers, lie-
cause of these conditions, the
business men will not be able to
extend more than half the usual
credit this season to the cotton-
growers. Full credit in the past
ha« been barely sufficient.
With his credit cut in half, the
cotton grower will have to raise
the food for 1 !s family a id the
feed for his live stock. These are
the supplies for which he has
used most of his credit in years
past. The sum of $4.75 will
buy garden seed from which, if

lie will, he can raise more l'< od
for his table than he can buy for
$'2110 at the store. Two i'o/.cii
hens can be made to furnish eggs
and meiit that will cut down iiis
meathill half through the sum-
mer. The pigs from one brood
sow will furnish him bacon,
ham and lard for less than half
what these cost at the store.
Corn on the bottom land and
Spanish peanuts on the upland
are good cash crops. Every up-
hind farmer should plant at least
10 acres of Spanish peanuts.
The cotton grower, after he
has arranged for land on which
to grow a plentiful supply of
food and feed, may, with safety
put the balance in cotton if he
so desires. With practically no
supplies to buy except flour, cof-
fee and sugar, the store hill will
be small. Probably the surplus
eggs and fat pig or two will pay
for it. Cotton will then be a sur-
| plus crop, not to be sold until

IN THE COMPOSITION
OR PRONUNCIATION OF
"Buy a Board"
We estimate that if each one
of our customers would buy
one hoard, say a 1x12 feet
long, at 35 cents, it would
i encourage the Lumber In-
dustry and enable us to meet
our obligations,—and there-
by serve to avert a panic
among our creditors, also
, create confidence, which
would tend to bring back
