How can we make a better meet

Cotton Marketing Reforms Must
I- it practicable to have every
bab' of cotton graded-correctly
graded according to its real value
to th,- spinnet-and its weight fixed j
before it leaves the hands of the!
farmer? There i.? more trickery
and dishonesty connected with the
handling of cotton, hinging around j
the question ol' - rode, length of sta-j
jib*, sampling and weight than seems j
? to be necessary. A large planter who j
: has handle:; cotton for thirty-live j
years as a factor ami who has for
: years been'a member of one of the,
cotton exchanges of the country j
states that the honest weight of a
I a bale changes but little and that
mott of .thc docking in weight is
plain robbery. To a man not per
sonally or financially interested, it
?seems that even a superficial look
into tito handling of cotton should
show plainly that the colton crop
is supporting loo many unnecessary
men for the marketing of the crops,
who live high and spend freely. The
numberof men living* off the mar
keting of cotton is too fr rea t and
they are living too well, considering
tbe service they render lo i iu-far
mer and the fact that he pays them.
Just as certain as night follows day
there must bc a reform in the mar
keting of cotton. It c??ts tco much
and there are too many opportuni
ties for graft and the levying- of
tribute for small service rendered.
Some or these days cotton will be
properly,graded before the produe
lecsells it, the g i ade will remain as
-established, and there will be less
sampling and docking for weight,
as well as a smaller tax paid the
middlemen Matu of those now liv
ing off the present irrational and
expensive methods of marketing
cotton had better begin looking for
other means onmaking a living, for
the intelligence of the people is too
great and tiie tribale levied too
heavy for the services rendered lo
permit of the farce being continued
much longer.-Progressive Farmer.

A Man of Peace.
Some policies of President Wil
son have been assail! in these col
umns, and they - will be assailed
again, and persistenly, until some
of them are changed or defeated.
But Woodrow Wilson, the man,
has one great claim to the everlast
ing gratitude of the American peo
ple, a claim that Mr. Taft, .also,
would have earned were he in the
executive chair: it is based on the
fact that the United States i> at
peace today, liad the jingoism of
Hobson and Theodora Roosevelt
prevailed, this continent might now
be torn by a struggle, smaller in
scope, but no less horrible, than
that raging on the continent of
Europe. Thanks to Woodrow Wil
son's steadfast adherence to the
ways of peace, in face of a wide
si re id and hysterical clamor for
uar. this country is today a vast
workshop instead of an armed
camp. Instead of having sown the
seed of lasting hatred in the breast
of a neighboring nation, we have
strengthened the bonds of friend
ship, and won the respect and trunC
of all the nations of the two Ameri
cas. Nor can anyone say that we
have lost prestige in the eyes of the
warlike nations of Europe.-Boston
