penniless. Will you marry me?
She—No. Why did you ask me?
He—I wanted to see how a man
feels when he loses a million dollars.
In his reading lesson Bobby had
come to the word “punishment,” and
It was too long and hard for him.
After puzzling, awhile he asked the
teacher what the word was.
“You ought not to let that puzzle
you, Bobby,” she answered. “What
does your mother give you when you
have been an unusually naughty boy?”
“Castor oil!” he exclaimed, sure
that he had guessed it.—Youth's Com-

"For 10 years I had stomach trouble
which produced a breaking out on my
face. The doctors gave It a long Latin
name, but their medicines failed to
cure it. Along with this I had fre-
quent headaches, nervousness and us-
ually pain in my stomach after meals.
“I got disgusted with the drugs,
stopped them and coffee off short, and
quit eating everything but fruit ana

“The headaches, stomach trouble,
and nervous weakness disappeared al-
most like magic, which showed that
when the cause was removed and
good food and drink used nature was
ready to help.

plexion became like a young girl’s,

90 to 120 pounds in a few months—

to be soft and flabby.
“I recommended Grape-Nuts and
Postum to one of my friends, who was
afflicted as I had been. She followed
my advice and in a short time was re-
stored to complete health and in about
8 months her weight increased from
100 to 148 pounds.

COTTON GROWERS MARKET CROP
CO OPERATION ESSENTIAL
Producers Do not Get Price They
Should for South's Staple and
Are Urged to Reduce the
Acreage in 1912
New Orleans.—Endorsement was
given by the governors and other rep-
resentatives of cotton growing states
attending the cotton conference here
to the Louisiana plan of state owned
cotton warehouses as a means of per-
manently protecting the cotton plant-
er against the low prices produced by
a too rapid marketing of the crop
early in the season.
The details of the Louisiana plan
were fully explained to the confer-
ence Tuesday by W. R. Thompson,
president of the New Orleans cotton
exchange, and the representatives of
at least two of the other southern
states emphatically declared that they
would work diligently to secure the
adoption of the Louisiana plan in their
atates—South Carolina and Georgia.
Mr. Thompson explained in his ad-
dress that by reason of the fact that
receipts for cotton placed in these
state-owned warehouses will have the
moral backing of the state govern-
ment, they will be negotiable in all
the money centers of the world. Al-
ready, he said, he had been assured
that financiers of Europe will, as soon
as the first of these state owned plants
ts opened, send money here to lend
to the farmers, with these receipts as
collateral at four per cent.
At Tuesday's session Govtrnor Col-
quitt submitted statistics relating to
the world's demands for American
cotton of the present cror
Governor Colquitt called attention
to the fact that this is the first time
in the history of the country that
figures showing the demand for cot-
ton have ever been compiled and
presented for the benefit of the grow-
er. Except the government’s estimate
of 13,800,000 hales this season's crop.
Governor Colquitt declared, that the
demonstration of a worldwide de-
mand for 13,739,000 bales proves con-
clusively that cotton today is worth
thirteen cents a pound or more. The
average price for last year’s crop was
14.t!0 cents per pound.
“With these figures before him."
said Governor Colquitt, “the farmer
should not hesitate t.o hold every re-
maining bale of the present crop un-
til Wie spinner comes across with
what he considers a remunerative
price. The figures were compiled by
foreign representatives of the United
States government from authentic
sources and are reliable "
It is also urged that cotton raisers
pledge themselves to a 25 per cent
reduction in acreage in 1912.

COURTS MAY DECIDE THE
MAINE PROHIBITION VOTE
Not Knokn Whether State Went Wet
or Dry—Erroneous Vote Fig-
ures in Returns
Augusta, Me.—The question wheth-
er the proclamation by Governor
Ploisted making known the result of
the September election on the repeal
of the prohibition clause of the state
constitution, may be issued before
December 1, the legal time limit for
such action, could not be determined
from information obtainable at the
The question whether the returns
from four towns shall stand as re-
ported or whether they shall be cor-
rected in accordance with evidence
that the figures are erroneous, is still
under consideration and no one offi-
cially connected would profess ability
today to say whether action would be
taken at the next meeting of the gov-
ernor and council on November 16.
As the matter stands the official
return canvassed by the governor and
council give a majority of 26 votes
for the repeal of the prohibitory
amendment. If the returns alleged
to be erroneous are accepted as cor-
rected a majority df 759 against re-
peal would result.
The courts may be asked to pass
upon the question. Such a step would
introduce a third alternative, inas-
much as the courts, it is said, could
declare the disputed figures void and
order them stricken from the tables.
Such a step would bring about a ma
jority of 366 against repeal.
