words about that "Mebane" cotton
and a few other things that directly
and Indirectly concern the agricultural
A few years ago when Mr. Bentl.v
In government employ brought a boll
of this cotton hero to show to the
rurallsts, I had ten acres of it grow
lug. I sold seed of this variety to
numerous farmers, and It i« probable
that thousands of bushels have been
ginned In this locality since. It is a
good cotton. It will gin from 37 to
40 per cent. It Is as near storm proof
as any. It is a good ylelder, and Is
(perhaps) more easily picked than
most other kinds. But I ^as never
able to get the highest ruling price be-
cause buyers claimed it wasn t the
first grade lint as it was too coarse.
It didn't mature any earlier for me
than did other cotton In the same
field, although its continued cultiva-
tion might have changed Its habits
somewhat. The song avers, "All Coons
Ixiok Alike to Me." I'll say it's my
belief that all cotton looks (or tastes!
alike to the boll weevil. Don't imagine
that because this is a good cotton,
and is boosted by parties In govern-
ment employ, you can raise a good
crop hy slovenly cultural methods,
"hog" the seed in, give it a lick or
two, wear out. the basement of your
trousers on a dry goods box "suving"
the government, and lay the blame for
a crop failure to the "hook worm."
Neither will it be any easier for your
wife and. children to do all the work

And yet, despite your best efforts,
and instructions from the "sliow-me"
fellows, if Providence or nature Is
agin" you, your cotton crop, no mat-
ter whether i ' Mebane," "Rowden."
or just "c< ' on," will come to grief.
No one ever saw a better prospect
for a good crop of corn than the far-
mem of Oklahoma had the past sea-
son; and yet it proved only another
case of "so near and yet so far." No
amount of "science" could have saved
the corn. If you contend that it could
then you assume that a crop can be
raised and saved in spite of Provi-
dence. But admitting that "demon-
strators" could show us how to in-
crease the yield three-fold—which, by
'he way, they didn't do while on the
farm—would the farmer be any bet-
J t,er off? Does any sane man suppose
ihat if there was three times as much
cotton, wheat and corn, and three
times as many hogs and beeves as at
present, the price would remain as
now? Wouldn't you rather sell one
bale of cotton at 10 cents per pound
than two bales at 5 cents? Wouldn't
it be the better to sell one bushel of
wheat at $1.00 than two bushels at 50
<•« nts a bushel? Why is It that the
farmer alone of the wealth-producing
class must be "shown?" Is he the only
ignoranf "cuss" in the lot? Why
doesn't your TTncle Samuel appoint
men to show the editor how to write,
the printer how to print, the baker
how to bake, the butcher how to skin
a beef, the preacher how to preach,
the chambermaid how to makex up
beds with those nine-foot sheets, the
burgler how to "burgle"—and so on ad
At a democratic love feast at Ard-
more recently one of the speakers had
for his theme—"What We Have Done
for the Farmer." This should make a
cow laugh. For a sop for votes they
prnve him "demonstration farms"
which not one farmer in a hundred
ever visit because the progressive far-
mer realizes that under like conditions
he could do as well as the demonstra-
tor and the other kind wouldn't receive
instructions. They made good roads
with pencils and the jaw-bones of an
If the farmer could make the roads
with a pencil he'd have the roadbed
of solid concrete 40 feet wide and
10 feet deep. They have voted the
hard working people's money away for
unnecessary things till taxes have be-
come a burden. They talk about state
aid for road building, but where Is the
state to get Its money from? Ask the
' already overburdened taxpayer.

The people of this city were < imsid-
crably alarnud over a fire which brol ■
out In the rear ot the Weisur & Ainui r-
man building at. 11 o'clock W^diu .sday
forenoon. Only the prompt action of a
bucket brigade saved the fclty from a
serious conflagration. For the on
that there is no fire department and
no organization to direct the operation
of the hose carts and hope, there was
considerable delay in turning on wat r
from the hose. This firo thoroughly
