The Cotton Mill.
An enterprising and aggressive
citizenship is the builder and uphold-
er of the community • interests ; and
other things being equal, the rela-

upon the earnestness and energy of
of its people.
Nothing but opportunity ever
comes ; accomplishment depends up-
No community can be too enterpris-
ing, but it can be too injudicious.
We often help to promote things
that prove to be of no help to us.
Nothing has value to us unless it
has a proper relationship to our
Would a cotton mill in Chandler
be a benefit to Lincoln county ? Yes.
Would it benefit the farmers? It
certainly ought to, because freight
commission and compress charges
would be saved and this saving could
be givento the farmers, at least a
major portion of it. The possibili-
ties are that a cotton mill could be
of great advantage to Chandler and
Lincoln county, and the possibilities
of getting it should enlist the hearty
co-operation of the city and country.
But don't go at this or any other
project head long or blind.
Preliminary investigation is al-
ways a better investment than late
reflection. The suggestion of the
editor of The News regarding a cot-
ton mill is timely and good and de-
serves the attention of United Far-
L. B. Irvin.
