Henry of Prussia Evidently One of
Those Leaders Who Do Not Say
"Go!" but "Come!"
Prince Henry of Prussia is an ar
dent sailor, says Pearson's Weekly,
but he is known among the bluejack
ets as a great martinet, anil they fear
rather than love him. The following
story is typical of his methods, and
shows that, although he expects those
under his command to put up with all
kinds of hardships, he is by no means
above "roughing it" himself.
One day, when he was on board a
warship in (he North sea, lie suddenly
gave the order, "All hands to bathe!"
It was a bitterly cold day and the
water was like ice. The order was so
evidently distasteful that one of the
officers ventured to make a mild pro-
test to the prince. Without answering
him a single word. Prince Henry, al-
though fully clothed, sprang over the
vessel's side, swam out a good dis-
tance in the icy water, and returned
to the dcck dripping from head to
After that, the sailors took their
bath without demur.

he doesn't.—Detroit Free Press.

in an animated discussion. In the

fatherly-looking Irishman, enjoying a j
nap Finaly one inquired of the
"How many children have you?"
' Twenty-two," she replied; "and how
many have you?"
"Oh. 1 have only nineteen," replied
At this point the Irishman, now
wide awake with astonishment, leaned
forward in his seat, and, without any
formality, inquired in a loud voice:
"What part of Ireland did you'se
come from?'—New York World.
Making Hubby Happy.
"George, dear, you remember just a
few weeks before we were married you
said that anything that you could do
to make me happy, would make you
very, very happy?"
Yes, darling. What is it?"
"George. 1 really must have another
new gown. 1 hope you won't deny
yourself that happiness."

HIGHER PRICES FOR COTTON
Decrease in Acreage, Damage by In-
sects and Demand for Staple Will
Increase Its Value.
"Before the Christmas holidays cot
ton will reach 15 cents a pound," de-
clared Representative Thomas R.
Heflin of Alabama to a Washington
Post correspondent the other day

ing to let go their crop until they get

Even now cotton is bringing in some
localities a price higher than that

The department of agriculture has es
tlmated a crop for 1915 of 11.500.000
bales: it will be nearer 10,000,000
bales The acreage in the cotton
states has been reduced fully 4.000,000.
which will mean a reduction of 5,000,-
000 bales from last year's total. In
Alabama and some of the other states
the boll weevil has been unusually ac
tive this year, and the storms in Tex
as. coupled with the rust, have mate
rially injured the crop there. The cot
ton growers are not going to he caught

eign nations that would buy our cot
ton at prices they might offer Great
Britain made cotton contraband in the
belief that it would knock down the
price to six cents or thereabouts and
that then It could buy up the crop
and resell it at twenty cents. But our
people know that there is a great de
mand for cotton all over the world and
that there will be a greater demand
when the European war is over Cot-
ton is used in the manufacture of two-
thirds of the war munitions and this
constant drain on the crop total is
bound to bring an increase In the
price. The cotton crops in Egypt. In
dia and Russia are not what was ex

looked to the United States for the
greater part of its supply, and she ex-

to be fooled. Our cotton growers are
not to be seduced by the false reports
of big crops here or In Egypt. India
The growing feeling that there ts
too much difference between the price
paid to the producer of food and the
price paid Iv the consumer has turned
the attention of American farmers
more and more to co-operative market- j
ing associations. Producers of perish-
able products have advanced the far '
thest in this direction qnd the best
organized co-operative marketing as-
sociations are now to be found among
tbe California citrus fruit growers and !
among (lit* deciduous fruit growers of |
the Pacific Northwest, in general it j
may be said that the most promising
"eld for such associations Is In the |
marketing of highly specialized and '■
I lie work of the marketing asso-
ciations includes the establishing of I
grades and standards; the adoption of !
brands and trademarks; the securing
of capital and credit; proper advertls- I
ing to encourage consumption of v
meritorious but little known product; |
discovery of new and extension of old
markets; securing information as to
crop and market conditions; tlio
equitable division of profits; adapting
production to meet market require
merits; the use of by-products; seour
ing cold and common storage facili-
ties; the co-operative buying and
manufacturing of supplies; co-opera-
tive Use of expensive farm machinery:
securing of lower freight rates, more
equitable refrigeration charges, and
more efficient transportation service;
the securing of more and better labor;
and the general cultivation of a spirit
of cooperation in all community af-
These objects cannot be achieved
without strong, capable management.
If a farmer has not sufficient faith in
the co-operative idea to go Into the
enterprise with his whole heart, to
hold up energetically the hands or
the manager and work disinterestedly
for the success of the association as a
whole, he had better not become a
member, for he will be far from a
source of comfort to his partners
The manager should be employed
by the board of directors and should ,
have large powers, lie should employ !
and discharge all labor; he should se-
cure information as to crop and mar- ]
ket conditions and furnish same to '
the members on request, lie should J
encourage the production of the best
varieties of products demanded by the |
trade. He should conduct packing I

come trained in the best methods of ■

Before an Insurance Company will

physician will test the urine and re-

When your kidneys get sluggish and
clog, you suffer from backache, sick-
headache, dizzy spells, or the twinges
and pains of lumbago, rheumatism and
gout. The urine is often cloudy, full
of sediment; channels often get sore
and sleep is disturbed two or three
times a night. This is the time you
should consult some physician of wide
experience—such as Dr. Pierce, of the
Invalids' Hotel and Surgical Institute,
Buffalo, N. Y. Send him 10 cents for
sample package of his new discovery—
"Anurlc." Write him your symptoms
and send a sample of urine for test.
Experience has taught Dr. Pierce that
"Anurlc" is the most powerful agent
in dissolving uric acid, as hot water
melts sugar, besides being absolutely
harmless and is endowed with other
properties, for it preserves the kid-
neys in a healthy condition by thor-
oughly cleansing them. Checks the de-
generation of the blood-vessels, as well
as regulating blood pressure. "Anurlc"
is a regular insurance and life-saver
for all big meat eaters and those who
deposit lime-salts in their joints. Ask
