market Iiis cotton gradually or dump
lt upon the market as in former years.
The developments abroad are coming
In for their Thai's of discussion and
the speculators in New York ?ire
working early and late in trying to,
The New York Times carries an in
teresting interview with Mr. Eugene
G. Seules Saturday, which furnishes
interesting reading. It follows:
"Eugene G. Scales, who operated
with .Tames A. Patten in the 1909 cot
ton pool as a member of the so-called
'Mig Four," and who was reputed to
have made and lost a fortune of $10.
0(0.000. ls a bull In the present cot
ton market. Mr. Scales talked for
publication yesterday, it was the sec
ond time in his life thut he ever did
such a thing, but as he put it. he felt
he was justified. The first time was
in 1009, when another big cotton oper
ator tried to pr?mote a plan for
boarding cotton in the South. 'E. (!.'
as the street calls Mr. Scales thought
such a plan would he ruinous and be
told his Texas friends not to he
"Yesterday 1t was the European
war that caused *E. G.' to talk. There
was such confusion In the minds of
cotton growers and dealers as to the
effect of the war on cotton, he Bald,
that an 'old timer' might help to
classify thc situation.
"And don't think I'm going to give
you an optimistic interview because
of my market position, said the op
erator. 'Today(I am long less than
r,,00O bales of-cotton. I have studied
the cotton market Intensely for 20
years, and am basing my calculations
on the government's figures.'
As to Short Sellers.
"E. G.' said short sellers of cotton
had better 'go Into hibernation' be
fore lt waB too late. Every sign indi
cated a general prosperity, he insist
ed, and cotton would share In 1 that
proaperlty. Tho South was fortified^
with plenty of money, ho said, and'
would prevent any repetition of last
year's calamity In tho cotton trade.
The bears were all wrong, he Btiid,
and would soon find out that their
arguments were not well founded.
"This is a time for optimists, thc
cotton speculator said, and the gov
ernment's figures showing a lfi per
cent reduction In acreage, should
convince any one of that. While ad
mitting that a sudden peace. would
unset the market temperorarlly, he
give it as his view that within a
month after peace was declared there
would be a great scrambling among
nntlons for this country's cotton.
"I can see nothing but good busi
ness in America, at least for the next
few years,' said Mr. Scales. "The
steel milla are busy, and that ia thc
test. America has the stuff to sell,
and big business must be the re
"The cotton milla are not loaded
up with cotton, and neither are the
merchants, wholesalers, pr retall?is.
They are all carrying tho minimum
of cotton in stock. These people
must buy eventually. In addition.
Europe will use a great deal more of
cotton In the next few years than she
used in the last few years. Things
once made of silk in Europe will he
made of cotton after the war ls ovpr.
My idea is that thu stocks of dry
uoods throughout tio world are down
to low ebb. other countries being
worse ott than America.
"So I maintain moat strongly that
there ls an enormous short Int?r?t.! in
cotton. America next season will
consume between 6,500,000 and 7.
000,030 bales of cotton. Europe takes
65 per cent of our cotton. The short
interest in actual cotton is the . most
enormous in the history of tho cotton
"In this co an "et Ion, Mr. Scales
maintained that when the buying of
the mill owners did begin in earnest
they would find themselves in com
petition with the specula tori?. There
wr.'ile* he a wave of speculation, he
ssld, similar to that la t!?e stock mar
ket when the war stocks adjusted
themselves in new conditions,
"There's Germaay^continued the
cotton man. Tho oOt&tday she of
fered to buy l.nilO.ooft bales of cot

Bremen. Before this jroer's crop has
passed away Germany will buy that
cotton and store it in America 'await
ing peace for its shlpmentc, nnd Oor
: many will pay ir, cents for lt hore.
"Well, whst do yon'think will han'

' sro firmly convinced that toe present

First Year Values
The first year values of Mutual Benefit policies constitute an attrac
tive feature for the protection of the insured. While most compan
ies grant non-forfeiture values after three years' and some after two
years' premiums have been paid, the Mutual Benefit is the only com
pany whose policies provide for extended insurance when less than
two annual premiums have been paid. Nearly all Mutual Benefit
policies provide for extended insurance after the payment of only
one annual premium and in some cases after the payment of a semi
annual or quarterly premium.
On May 13, 1913, tue Mutual Benefit issued a policy on thc life of Mr. Albert R. Cate, of
Spring City, Tenn, lt was on the 20 Payment Life Plan for Si,ooo, the age of thc insured
heing twenty-one. Semi-annual premiums were paid fur one and one-half years, hut the
premium due October t, 1914 (policy having been dated back to the first of April original
ly), was not paid. Under the peculairly attractive non-forfeiture system of the Mutual Bene
fit referred to above the insurance, however, was automatically extended in full for two years
and 153 days until March 3, 1917, the final dividend of S3.31 being used to lengthen the ex
tension term. On June 8, 1915, Mr. Cate was accidentally drowned. This was within the
extension period during which the insurance was insured, S?) on the day after proofs of loss
were received at the Home Office, July 1st, check for S 1,000 was forwarded to the adminis
This case not only illustrates the value of the Mutual Benefit's practical non-forfeiture system,
but it also emphasizes the uncertainty of individual life even for a young man.

It will go two cents a pound higher '

"What 1 say. of course, is on the
assumption that the war will continue
for another year or two. I do not
believe there is u man living who
would be willing to be short of cot
ton overnight at ia cents a pound
If he knew that peace would be de

ever .that I personally would not be

month after peace was declared, even
