W hen we become willing to look
this cold fact in the face the prob-
lem becomes one of arrangement,
presenting no insuperable difficul-
ties. The organization of a federal
warehouse system could be easily
accomplished. Warehouses are now
springing up all over the south,
and a bureau could be established
in the Treasury Department for
the conduct of the«business. The
government through this bureau
could ascertain the average price of
cotton for the past ten years and
this would be around 12 1-2 cents.
It could then on the warehouse cer-
tificate, basis middling, advance
seventy-five per cent of the average :
value of cotton for the past ten
ation, as Mr. Thompson asserts.
The load of holding the present
crop must be taken off of the far-
mers back and carried by a back
strong enough to bear it. The Gov-,
ernment can shoulder the load with-
out the loss of a single cent and se-
cure for the cotton producer the
price he should receive for his pro-
ducts. Ware houses under such a
plan would mean something more
than houses of shelter for the gam-
blers cotton. They would mean

A few days later there appeared
against this body of land a mort-
gage to the amount of $5,600, to
the Commissioners of school land.
A further investigation reveals the
fact that the same land is assessed
for the year 1914at$3,170. Won-
der who it was who inspected the
loan? There is another school
land loan on the nel-4 of Sec.
9-!)-l west for $800, executed this
month and this quarter section is
assessed at only $1,100. Land is
supposed to be assessed at near its
actual cash value, but it seems on
the four quarter sections above
enumerated our school land board
lias loaned over $6,400, on land
assessed for the year 1914 at $4,270.
It would seem that either the as-
sessor or School Land Board should
get busy and the assessor assures
us that he assessed the land for all
it was worth.
U. W. VanCamp Improving
G. W. VanCamp was taken to
the Wesleyan Hospital Thursday to
undergo an operation for blader
and kidney trouble. The opera-
tion was performed Friday and
Wednesday of this week his con-
dition was very satisfactory and
the doctors hoped for his speedy
recovery. The many friends of
Mr. VanCamp in this city will be
pleased to learn that his recovery
is quite favorable. For over a
vear he has been a sufferer.
