This country is not in nearly, so
bad shape as some of our people
seem to fear. We have plenty of
feed stuffs, so that there need be
no fear on that hand. The cotton
crop, which promises to be heavier
than common, is somewhat of a
problem, at present, but we are in-
clined to believe it a problem which
will be satisfactorily solved at
some time in the future, and to
which ths policy of "watchful wait-
ing." which has proven successful
alori£ other lines, may be applied
Much of the hullabaloo being raised
over this question is, we honestfy
believe, resultant from the ardent
desire of politicians to pose as the
friend of the farmer, these politi-
cians, in attempts to further their
desires, painting conditions in the
most lugubrious colors,and, through
their frantic endeavors to outdo
earh other in offering measures that
they loudly proclaim as the only
panacea for the evil that affects the
country. The cotton is here; it can
be sefely stored and held until the
price is high enough to justify sell-1
ing it, suffering but little, if any.
deterioration from age. tt is, of
course, to be regretted that this
commodity is not readily market-
able at a good price at the present
time, but there is too much stress
being placed on conditions. We have
seen seasons when there was far |
more reason for fear than there now i
is. In those seasons there was no
cotton to hold, no feed for stock, no
heavy crop of small grain to relieve
the situation. Let's quit our cryng:
around like a boy with a sore toe. j
Set together and all talk of the |
good things that have been vouch-
sefed us in the past year. Let's cut
out our lachymose sympathizing
with farmers, which only serve to
make that sturdy class of citizenship
dwell more strongly on their reput-
er meet* them with a word of hearty
good cheer, slap them on the back,
bid them think of the many good
things the world yet contains, and
positively refuse to talk about thj
low price of cotton. This is one
time and one occasion, when the
faith cure is certainly advisable.

We sell you good bread, the hest
yuii can get in Purcell.
We only give you two loaves for a dime, but they are full weight.
It is a simple trick to make three loaves out of the same amount
of dough that bakers use for making two loaves.
You can make it fluffy, and it looks as large as a regular five
cent loaf, but you have not gotten the weight — that's what
counts in buying Bread.
In the pastry line such as cakes,
etc., is the best that can be found.
