HANDLING THE COTTON.
(From Memphis Commercial-Appeal)
We have come into an extraordi-
nary situation in the caring for this
year’s crop of cotton. Before the
war cotton was fetching 13 cent* a
■pound. The crop was reported to
be large, but if there had been no
•war there would have been a demand
for every bale that was grown at .1
The opinion now is that there wil
be 4,000,000 or 5,000,000 more bales
of cotton than there is a demand for
Certainly there will be little spinning
in France and Germany and little in
England. The English mills might
go ahead but for the fact that the
mind of England is absorbed by the
tremendous problem of saving the
• Here we are at the opening of the
season with war sweeping the world
and with cotton future exchange
Naturally those American mills
that run are desirous of securing the
cotton at a low figure. So long as
the supply exceeds the demand there
will be a tremendous burden on tin*
market. This war may end within
60 days. If it should end within 60
<Jaye, an enormous supply of cotton
will be piled up.
Again, the war may go on until
next spring. Unless more spindles
are put in motion, and the war does)
go on until next spring assuming !
that the mills of England, France)
and Germany remain idle—little i
more than half of the cotton grows !
can be spun.
But if the American spindles and
those In the Orient go full tilt, they 1
could consume much more than their.
If we could carry this cotton crop i
along and reduce the acreage next I
year, the present crop could be
marketed at a fair price, in spite of
Unfortunately for us, we are not a
carrying people. We of the south
have been carried by others. We
pay an enormous toll for the service.
The wheat grower of the north-
west and the farmer of Illinois ami
Jowa long ago learned the trick of
carrying himself. He is his own*
If there were some means of our
pulling together we could carry the
crop along. The undertaking is so
big that an immediate tangible plan
is hard to reach.
But this much can be done. Every
man able to keep his cotton off the
market should do so, because If he
is able to hold that cotton he is rea-
sonably sure to get a good price for
it before another crop is grown.
The man able to hold cotton will
not likely put In a big crop next year,
unless the situation is cleared up,
until he gets rid of his present supply.
The I/Ord helps those who help
themselveB. Let the small farmer
who is out of debt hold hack what
«otton he can. Let the large planter
•do the same Let the man who is
in debt and being pressed sell only
enough to pay himself out. The small
merchant In the country town should
do his part In not rushing the cotton
to market. Same Is true as to the
This sort of co-operate effort would
■be one material help. After that the
resources which we have always used
should be called upon.
If cotton is properly warehoused,
a genuine warehouse receipt is
mighty good collateral.
Juet now there 1b a scarcity of
money in Chicago and St. Louis cen-
ters, but within a few days big re-
turns on wheat will have begun to
filter Into this country. Part of this
money, then, can probably be secured
and used in carrying our cotton
If the cotton crop <s carried, the
question of acreage next year will
adjust itself. For at the beginning
of the season, If the war is not over
and the price of cotton does not
promise to be high, the planter with
money will plant other stuff and the
farmer without money will have to
•grow something else, because he can
secure precious little to grow another
crop when the present crop is not yet
off the market.
One plan suggested was that as
many people as possible agree to
take off the market one bale of cot-
ton at 10 cents a pound.
THUS. G. ANDREWS
Hi-pulil icmi Tirkrl
Some people think that all that is re-
quired of the county attorney is the prose-
cution of criminals. That is not true.
The county attorney represents the
county in all civil litigation. Andrews is an
experienced lawyer, fully qualified—he will
look after its interests.
The county attorney is the legal ad-
visor of all of the county officials. Andrews
has made a careful study of the kiw relat-
ing to county officials and is fully cognizant
of their duties. He is prepared to advise
them intelligently and has the moral cour-
age to insist upon the performance of their
The county attorney is a member of the
county excise board As such it is his duty
to revise and correct the estimates made
by all county, town, township and school
district officers and to see that they are not
excessive. Andrews is a taxpayer. He will
vote and work all of the time to secure a
reduction of the tax levy, while a member
of that board.
The county attorney has general super-
vision over all justices of the peace. He
should carefully check over their quarterly
reports to see that they have accounted for
the fines and other receipts of their offices.
Andrews will insist upon a report from
every justice of the peace as provided by
law and will see that all receipts from this
source are properly accounted for.
Andrews will look after the interests of
Lincoln county and will enforce ALL of the
law, both civil and criminal, ALL of the
gestion sounds visionary, but it is
being considered by some very hard
headed business men of this city and
is being pushed in a neighboring city.
The action of the meeting in ap-
pointing a committee to see bankers
in the east and north and ascertain
how much, if any, money could be
secured to tide cotton over until It
could come into its own, was wise.
If It can be arranged to carry cot-
ton along, say at $30 a bale, then
indeed will the supreme element In
the problem be worked out.
There 1b no necessity of our people
becoming panic-stricken. Let every
man hold on to his cotton as long
as he can. If he can’t g«-c a good
price for It now. If we are not pa-
tient and don't co-operate, then in-
deed will we accomplish nothing.
England, France and Russia have
signed a pact to stand together until
the end. Not one wil! make a peace
without the consent of the other.
At first this propositon looks bad
for a speedy conclusion of the war.
But this agreement in itself may be

(New York Herald.)
What may be described as the first
aea duel has been fought off the West.
African coast between the British
light cruiser Highflier and the con-
verted cruiser Kaiser Wilhelm der
Grosse, formerly employed by the
North German Lloyd line in trans-
Atlantic trattle. Beyond the fact that
the German was sunk by gunfire and
that a list of British casualties was
furnished, together with a statement
that the Kaiser Wilhelm's survivors
of the tight were rescued, no particu-
lars of this single ship action have
been received. No question of the
right of the German ship to figure as
an auxiliary vessel of war can be
raised, as occurred in several in-
stances of conversion during the
Russo-Japanese war. Her owners
had an agreement with the German
government that she might be taken
into the public service during war,
her battery and equipment were de-
scribed In official publications, and
these were stored at officially desig-
nated places. Moreover, she was un-
doubtedly dispatched from Breiner-
baven under government control and

An Idea of the magnitude of the
loss to the country in the present
cotton crop by the sudden and de-
moralizing prices quoted by the
speculative cotton market due to war
in Europe may be formed by quota-
tions on cotton August 17. On this
date cotton was quoted at 8 1-2 cents,
w hich represented a decline of 4 1-2
cents a pound since July 23. It will
be seen that this represents a loss of
about $22.50 per bale, which for the
Texas crop alone, estimating the
crop at 3 1-2 million bales, would
cause a loss to the people of this
state of over 78 million of dollars.
When we think of the toil and de-
privations necessary for the produc-
tion of this crop and of the business
dependent upon it we may be sure
the problem of saving the situation
is worth all the effort the people may
exert. But very little, if any, cotton
was sold at these prices. Growers
are holding for better prices.
A cotton man has estimated
roughly that the United States and
Canada should be able to manufac-
ture, owing to an extra demand for
cotton goods, 7,000,000 bales of the
present crop; Japan, 500,000 hales,
leaving 7,500,000 bales of a possible
15,000,000-bale crop. It is now
hoped that all of the ports except
those of Austria and Germany may
be opened within a few months.
These countries have been using
about 2,500,000 bales. This amount,
with the decrease of other countries,
cotton men believe, will leave us to
care for 4,000,000 or 5,000,000 bales
of cotton. For how long no one
knows, but many believe that the
war will soon (ease and industrial
conditions in Europe revive.
Be that as it may, we, as an in-
telligent people, at peace with all
nations and possessed of abundant
resources, are in a position to store
a portion of cotton and hold it till
prices justify selling. Shall four or
live million bales of surplus cotton

At the close of the civil war, with
the revival of business, the demand
for cotton was enormous. European
countries that had been deprived of
our cotton because of the blockade
placed large orders, Increased their
spindles and began to run overtime
to supply tin* great demand for cot-* j
ton goods. Who can say the same
will not happen when the present
was Is over?
The south could have a monopoly
on the ‘‘fleecy staple,” but our peo-
ple have been too stupid to use it.
We have produced a staple that the
w'orld needs and cannot well do with-
out and then permitted tlie outside
world to set the price and pay what
it considered it worth. Shall we per-
mit a few to buy our crop at ridicul-
ous prices and reap the benefit of a
probable revival after the war at
our expense? This is no more the
grower’s question than it is the busi-

HOW CHILDREN GROW
Children grow by nourishment—not
overloaded stomachs or rich foods but
qualities that are readily converted into
life-sustaining blood; too often their
digestive powers cannot procure these
qualities from ordinary foods which results
m weakness, dullness and sickness.
If vour children are under-size, under-
weight, catch cold t astir, are languid,
backward, pale or frail, give them Scott’s
Emulsion which ta pure medicinal nourish-
ment. It sharpens the appetite, builds
healthy flesh, firm muscles and active
brains. Scott’s is growing-food for
children. Refuse alcoholic sub titutes.
PLANS FOR STATE FAIR SCHOOL.
It is probable that about one hun-
dred boys and girls will attend the
fair at Oklahoma City as delegates
to the annual A. and M. college state
fair school. The school this year will
be held from September 28 to Octo-
ber 3, inclusive. Two boys and two
girls from each of the counties having
organizations of the A. and M. col-
lege clubs are eligible to attend the
state fair school as delegates. First
prize winners in the county grain
contests and in the sewing contests
will have all expenses paid, including
traveling expenses. Second prize
winners in these events will have all
expenses paid except traveling ex-
penses. Although no provision was
originally made to send delegates
from the clubs organized by the
federal department, many commer-
cial clubs In counties having these
clubs are arranging to pay the ex-
penses of winners from these clubs.
In future the two sets of clubs will
have the same organization and will
come under the same rules.
The extension division of A. and
M. college, which will have charge
of the state fair school, will furnish,
in conjunction with the fair associa-
tion, a big tent to be used for lee- |
tures, etc. The boys will sleep In
this tent and will be under the di-
rection of a member of the college
faculty, who will live with them dur-
ing the time they are in Oklahoma
City. The girls will have sleeping
quarters in the A. and M. college
building and a woman member of
the college faculty will be constantly
with them. The girls will not be
allowed to leave the building except
when properly chaperoned. All meals
will he taken on the grounds.
Side trips over the fair grounds
and the city will be taken during the
week. The boys and girls will be
accompanied by members of the col-
lege faculty who will point out the
many things of interest. The pack-
ing houses in Oklahoma City will be
among the places visited
