through which thc present iniquitious
credit system which has so long held
our peojle in bondage, can be effec

past, lt is the only medium through
which the great masses of colton pro
ducers can ever hope to control the
sale of their cotton in the markets
of the country and force consumers
and buyers lo pay them fair and just
prices for the si a pie. Any system
which forces the producer to market
his crops rapidly in order tb meei ma
turing obligations to pay for supplies
that could be more cheaply raised at

of the grower, minimizing the rights
of manhood which every Southern cot

Over-Production a Serious Menace.
In spring, 1003. a crisis serious and
potential faced the colton growers of
the South by reason of over-produc
tion of coi lon iii 1!H>4. The Southern
Cotton Association at that time waged
an active and effective campaign
for a reduction in the cotton area of |
be planted in IDO"). Thc advice of j
the Association was loyally supported !
by cotton growers throuftoitt the en
tire cotton belt and a reduction of
fully five million acres was stricken
. flom the cotton area for 1005 and
planted in other erops. The result of
this display of good judgment on the
part bf the farmers is Imlay seen in
bringing the production of roi iou willi
in the legitimate demands for con
sumption, good prices for the staple
and well-filled corn cribs and smoke
houses from North Carolina to the Rip
Grande River; The agricultural, com
mercial, industrial and financial inter
ests of the South ure today enjoying
an era of prosperity far in excess of
any period experienced within the
past half century. To maintain our
present position, and forge ahead in
the achievement of greater snceess. it
is imperative that no serious mistake
be made by the planters who arc now
making their arangemcnts for the
spring planting of 1906. Let every
mau pause and calmly" consider his
future even while enjoying the flush
of a victory which has been the most
marvelous ever won in modern times.
Present Acreage Sufficient.
The present estimated twenty-seven
million acres planted in cotton is suffi
cient under normal climatic conditions
to raise enough cotton to meei the de
mands of spinners for the American
staple. Any material increase in thc
cotton acreage for I90? will tend to
stagnate the colton market ami de
press prices below their legitimate
value. The legit ?male laws of supply
and demand is the only true medium
nf regulating fair and legitimate
prices for our great stank: product.

The Sacrs? ?ouglt
Mistletoe seems now inseparable
from Christmas, but it was uot always
so. The use of the mistletoe in our
Christmas festivities is generally con
ceded to be a survival of Druidic cere
monial. Looking back now, we can see
that to this worship of the mistletoe,
and the. wonderful cures the Druids
effected by means of it, was due
much *o the veneration in which they
themselves were held. To them it was
Df Divine origin, possessing powers of
bealing mid curing disease that gave
lt the name of "curer of all ills," or
the "all-heal." The ceremonial rites
connected with the worship of the mis
tletoe were performed on a seale o?
great insignificance, tn the sacred
month of December, during the feast
that ushered in thc New Year. The
time for the beginning of these rites
was announced by the priests, who
went about shoutinj outside the
houses, "New all-heal, new all-heal!"
or "The New Year is at hand, gather
thc mistletoe." The cry was followed
by the congregating of the people in
great crowds, to follow the priests In
solemn procession, as all went Into the
woods to search for the sacred plant.
Two white bulls were taken for sacri
ficial purposes, while the three most
ancient pontiffs carried respectively a
howl of bread, wine and water, and a
hand of ivory attached to a wami, this
representing power and justice. It
must have been an imposing proces
sion, with the ancient pontiffs in full
ceremonial costume leading the way,
followed by the bards and priests of
various ranks, each in the costume of
in's order, and following these the peo
ple, all eager to find the mystic plant
that was a panacea agaiust all ills and
thc true source of happiness to all who
could possess it.

Srory of the French Knight.
The French myth of the Christmas
tree is the most complete and will be J
the most interesting to chilldren who;
may wonder why the Christmas tree'
is amoug them, and if the gifts which
it bears arc its ouly reason for exist/1
euee. On one cold Christm'as night
carly in the thirteenth 'century a
French knight was journeying to his;
chateau. Suddenly in front of him j
he saw the vision of a fir tree aglow
with lights. He looked closer, and saw
they were candles, some burning right I
side up and some hanging downward.
On top of the tree was a curly headed,
child, with a halo about Its bead. The
vision greatly troubled the knight, and
lie referred It to the Pope for an ex
planation. He was told tbat tho fir
tree represented Immunity, that the
child was Christ watching over all,
iud that the lights represented men.
Those which burned right side up were
those whose deeds were good, and j
those which were upside down repre
scnted men whose deeds were bad.
This is the story which is told to the
utile French children of Springfield,
ind they try during thc coming year
ro act in such a manner that the can
lie which represents them on thenext

HOT-AIR" COFFIN FACTORItS
Lead Many Unwary Investors Into
Quicksands of Financial Ruin.
In these days of frenzied finance,
and the limelight of investigation on
insurance corporations, the osdlnary
public is amazed over the disclosure
of how millions are carelessly handled
by the heads of large institutions, sup
posed to be safe and conservative.
One fact revealed by these disclos
ures, is that the men connected with
such institutions, have gotten beyon?
the days of small capital, and deal
with such which rival Uncle Saru*s
treasury, through which, if successful,
they will realize large profits.
How sadly in comparison do the "in
vestors'* in many manufacturing en
terprises pppear, when judged from
the standpoint of "knowing what you
do," and nowhere ls this more patent
than with the investor that is con
stantly sinking funds In the many
mushroom coffin factories that appear,
and then after a spasm "disappear,

through the sheriff.
Did the loss but extend only to those
"investors" it would be but the usual re
sult, of not "looking before you leap
ed," but what, of the creditors, and
frequently the amounts advanced by
"localities" paid to stimulate the new
town industries, and often the wages
due to workmen.
The prevailing opinion in I he public
mind that the manufacturing of un
dertakers' goods returns tremendous
profits, is no doubt stimulated by ex
perience bad with the undertaker, but
in the manufacturing of funeral sup
plies, the question becomes quite a
different proposition, for supply and
demand, pure and simple, regulates
the price, as it does in all other busi
ness, with the exception that "the
demands cannot bc stimulated, by
either style, product, or price, "ra
ther Time," alone controls.
Here is where the over zealous cap
italist or community allow promoters,
or patriotism to Impose upon their
credulity, in accepting statements
which will not bear the "light of in

conditions, subscribe and put up their

the Jwelfth census, table number 94,
we find that the total deaths from
all causes in the registration area of
the United States was 512,669 for
twelve months, but this registration
area was only 38 per cent of the con

presence of danger may be made mani
fest by profuse menstruation, accom
panied by unusn&l pain, from the
ovaries down the groin and thighs.
If you have mysterious pains, ii there
are indications of inflammation or dis
placement, don't wait for time to con
firm your fears and go through the
horrors of a hospital operation ; secure

Dear Mrs. Pinkliam:
" I take the liberty to congratulate you on
the success I have had with your wonderful
medicine. Eighteen months ago my month

fered Acony For Twenty-Five Years
Until Cured by Cuticura.
"For twenty-five years 1 suffered agony
from a terrible humor, completely covering
my head, neck and shoulders, discharging
maller ol' such offensiveness to sight and
smell that I became an object of dread. 1
consulted thc most able doctors far and
near, to no avail. Then I got Cuticura,
and in a surprisingly short time 1 was com
pletely cured. I advise all those suffering
from skin humors to get Cuticura and end
their misery at once. S. P. Keyes, 149
