HARVIE JORDAN AT CHESTnR,
flr. Brice Gives Some Impressions of
Mr. Jordan's Speech and the Work
-of the 5onthern Cotton Association..
Mr. Editor: I had the pleasure
>f hearing Hon. Harvie Jordan's
peech in Chester on the 5th inst.,
ind I wish every farmer in Fair
ield could have heard him. There
ere a good many of our Fair
ield people preseut, but not many
is I hoped to see. The opera
louse was well filled and a good
many had to stand up.
As on orator he is not the equal
>f Mr. E. 1). Simith, but his speech
.vas brim full of facts and figures
)u the cotton question, and he
ertaiuly is thoroughly posted in
a regard both to the productive
tnd consumptive of cotton.
He spok;e for an hour and a
Iuarter, devoting most of :his
'me to an explanation of the
Vold's consumption of cotton
Lnd the available supply, and also

hat the Fall River mills could
av 15c. for cotton at the present
)rice of their product and ac
ually make a larger profit than
vben they were buying cotton at
ic. He says the mills can and
vill take the remainder of this
:rop at 15c., if the spot holders
ill just hold fast a little longer.
Some of the cotton brokers of
gew York are already sending
ut preliminary estimates of an
nereise in azerage for the pres
nt seasou of from 5 to 10 per
ent, and they are using this to
)reak the- market. Mr. Jordan
rged the farmers to reduce the
Lcreage and keep the production
ven with or below consumption
nd to plant largely of food-sup
)ly crops, telling them that or
anization was a good thing and
iecessary to their welfare, but
hat a self-supporting farm was
he only foundation upon which

:o make ends meet, and a gentle
nan in the audience spoke out
nd said, "Yes, I know that to be

ertainly can't do it now.

Dear Sirs: The baudsome re
sidence of Oliver Gildersleeve on
Main street, Portland, Conn, was
painted in 1888 with Devoe and
ag,)in in 1901.
There's 13 years there are
hundieds of such; the difficulty is
to hear of 'em.
Reminds of another. The
Farrington residence, Rockland,
Maine, was painted Devoe 21
years ago; the paint. was in fair
condition 5 years ago, when v e
saw it; don't know any more.

A teacher in a certain Sunday
school had been inpressng on
her girls the need of making some
personal sacrifice during Lent.
Accordingly, on the first Sunday,
of the penitential season, which
happened to be a warm sprine
day, she took occasion to ask
each of the class, in turn, what
she had given up for the sake of
her rAigion. Everything went
well, and the answers were prov
ing highly satisfactory, until she
came to the yongest member.
"Well Mary," inquired the teach
er, "what have you .left off for
