HUSH! LISTEN! THE MINIMUM
PRICE OF COTTON.
When the wires begin to ring out the
minimum prices of cotton let everybody
join in a regular swan song to stand for'
the minimum price and all will be well
for the whole South.
Before you offer a resolution thint is
likely to revolutionize things to any con
~siderable extent ask yourself if it is
right. And then the second thought
can it be done?
Just so sure as there is a good time
and place to begin; 1here is it good timo
and p'ace to stop in everything. It is
stated that the good wife of a Farmers'
Union muan gave birth to three sons in
one day. At the next meeting of the lo

e >qnire of the brother if he meant to go
ou, and possess the earth for itimself and
family, or did he intend this three at a

style and losing lots of sleep and other
things too numerous to mention to win
your position, and then for the lack of
grit and pluck. let some other fellow
take the prize.
"Eternal 'vigilance is the price of lih
erty." You need not fool yourself by
thinking that since you have knocked
out the bucket shops, bully-ragged the
cotton speculator, bluffed the New York
Cotton Exchange and fly-blown the Gov
ernment Cotton reports, th-it you can
now retire to your homes in peace nnd
plenty; you must keep at it all the while
looking for the same old enemies to poke
out their heads in any new place. Keep
your organizations strong and steatdy to
deal a deadly blow to these snake heads

wehope that friends as true may gath
around them should sorrow invade thei
homes. H. W. Farr.

poet was so awkward a horseman that
his riding often attracted comment of
anythiag but a complimentary nature.
' One day he was riding along the turn
Lpike road in the county of Durham

upon hIm as an excellent subject for
sport. Consequently he drew rein and
said in an impertinent drawl:
"My graceful friend, did you happen
to meet a tailor on the road?"
"I'm inclined to think I did," said
Coleridge meditatively. "I was no
sure at the moment. but he sald some
