a similar charge.

ed the whisky. He said that be had

sentative and was elected to the legis-
lature November 7.

appears probable. More than 6,600
bales have already been marketed
here. ThiB does not Include the lint-

$95 a bale. Thia increased before
much had been soia to imo h bale,
and all the late crop has been sel ing
anywhere from $120 to $140. The
entire crop will average much in ex-

that the crop marketed at Ada will
not fall far short of $1,000,000.
