weather all through September and

fall weather now. The week of
rain has put everybody behind with
picking cotton. We are having
fine weather for sowing grain, and
all who can are sowine. A good
many are going to try wheat again
this fa4i. There is more clover
and grass being planted in this
neighborhood this fall than I have
ever known before, as one of the
results of our institute last summer.
The crops with us are poor, but the
price of cotton and seed will help
out the short crops.

Germany Will Buy and Store
There is reason to believe that
both the Germans and the Allies are
watching keenly the present cotton
situation,-that Germany is as anx
ious to have cotton as the Allies are
to prevent her from obtaining it,
and it is not inconceivable ihac lhere
may be evidences before very long
of international competition for the
possession of the South's great sta
ple. It is at least a possibility that
cotton will be purchased in large
quantities for foreign account and
stored in the warehouses of the
South to be shipped out as needed
and as opportunities for shipments
No one has ever accused the Ger
mans of being lacking in far-sight
illness. Their ability to look into
j the future and to provide foi every
, eontin^'ucy is marvelous. They are
j already looking forward to what
i will happen when peace is restored,
aitid that they will make a supreme
eff ?rt to rr-cover their lost trade
?with other nations cannot be donb
! led.It is not reasonable to believe that
they w<?uld look with complacency
I upon the absolute control of the
cotton market by the mills of Eng
land and America, permitting them
to secure their supplies of cotton
at very low prices, and defer their
own parchases until after peace is
m?de and take the chances of se
curing then their own stocks at
mnch higher prices. Is it not reason
able io believe that they will ar
range to buy cotton as the spinners
of other nations buy it, and can
they not easily make arrangements
to have their purchases of cotton
stored until they ^an transport it to
their own .shores?-Hon. W. P. Gr.
