Washington Nov. 10. The Euro
pean war has smashed all records of
ipast performances of the American
k'ottoii market when (considered
(month by month yet it is predicted
that when the season has closed not
withstanding an almost limit yield
and a depressed foreign market the
price of cotton 'will have attained
ipractically a normal status.
Tho jriee as of Nov. 1 furnished in
a recent statement by the Depart
ment of (Agriculture puting cotton
at C." per pound was but an aver
age of the price being paid in all of
the cot.ton-producing states and cep
resented figures gathered by the de
partment's Sim) crop reporters. Bank
ed against this depressed price ap-
pears the average for Nov. 1 l'.'ir;.
which was He. Since the average
for the entire lyear was but 131c jer
K)iind it might be assumed in many
'quarters that the department's com.
parison was a showing of tho de-
pressed condition on November 1 of
this year with the entire perform-
ance of cotton during 11)13. Such
was not the case the department's
bureau of crop estimates says neith-
er was it inteiio-l to le so.
Trices being paid In states on Nov.

lated figures were: North Carolina.
fi.. South Carolina C.fic. Georgia
Alabama Louisiana and Texas 6.2";
Tennessee Mississippi and Arkansas
fi.l; Oklahoma fie. The prices by
month during 1313 were: September

December 12.2c January 11.7c and
February 11. tic. The local cotton
cotton prices are now ranging To and
better and with scarcely more than
one tenth of the crop marketed and
the price steadily advancing there is
no reason to believe that the ce'fs
average price will fall far short of
what it would have been had the war
not occurred. This statement is mad
with the f ill understanding that t .e
KC I crop iil be larger than that of
j ideire from the pre!H Ir.ary

jxmdents. It must be understood
that the department makes no fore-
cast as to rric-. It rests only with
