The Official Cotton Grader i
and His Worth.
Clemson College, June 26.-"In
"passing upon the grade and staple of
'cotton the licensed official grader is
not personally interested as to x
'whether the cotton grades low mid- j
.diing or strict middling," says D. W. j
Watkins, Assitant Director of the ,
Extension Service. In answering the
.question, What does the official grad
ing and stapling of cotton mean to
The government grades are his j
standard and he is required to ad- ^
here strictly to them, let the benefit
fallwhere it may/ He is frequently
checked up in his grading to make
sure that he is not grading "off" or
""on" the government standards. The _
farmer who has his cotton graded s
thus knows what he has to sell. The *
.only question that remains is to come
to an agreement with a buyer on
the price of a known article.
There is no doubt that a great
many buyers on the wagon or pri
mary markets buy cotton at a price
based on undergrading. This comes
about in two ways:
/ 1. Many buyers of cotton do not
know how to grade cotton accurately
and therefore in buying they make
sure they are safe as to grade and '
staple. Thismeans undergrading and
a loss to the grower.
2. There are, among cotton buy
ers, as among every other class, some
who would willingly cheat their fei- t
lowmen. A buyer of this kind would *
knowingly take advantage of the ig- *
norance of the seller to almost any ^
extent. Instances are known where 1
a buyer made a profit as much as 1
$50 on a bale by buying long staple '
cotton when the grower thought he 1
was selling short staple. Unfairness 1
of thjs kind inbound to occur unless
cotton is properly graded and sta- '
It is worthy of note that many <
honest progressive buyers favor of- i1
ficial grading for the season that in '
buying officially graded cotton they '
are no longer suspected by the grow- -
ers of cheating on grades. ?

still the majority ar? not. Many
young men after being educated do
not want to marry the girl to whom
they have been engaged by their
parents. The idea of breaking an en
gagement is not welcomed at all by
the parents of either the boy or the
girl, so they force them to marry and
thus begins the wrecking of two
lives. Today there is a man in Ameri
ca because he does not want to mar
ry a heathen and uneducated girl
who has been kept at home in igno
rance all her life, and if he comes
back to China, his parents will try to
enforce the marriage. When a girl
is engaged in her youth, her parents
keep her close at home and spend
only what money on her they have
to. At our college in Shanghai the
young men reach the point where
they sometimes want to commit sui
cide in order to avoid marrying a
heathen and illiterate girl. It is real
ly pathetic. In my church is a fine
young fellow who was engaged in his
youth to a girl who is still illiterate
and heathen. Well, he did not want
to marry her, but was forced to, now
he is ashamed to face the other fel
lows in Sunday school and church.
So you can readily see how difficult
the problem really is.
But I must stop. With kind regards
andsincere good wishes, I am,
Most cordially yours,
J. El JACKSON.
Will Reduce Large Stock.
In order to reduce his very large
stock which invoices around $60,000
Mr. Hubenstein will conduct a special
sale for 15 days beginning Saturday
next. He does not want to get caught
with so large a stock if merchandise
declines in price. He purchased his
goods, most of them, many months
ago and is in position to make a very
close price, enabling those who spend
their money with him to get the best
possible returns. Read what he says
in his page advertisement this week. '
Mr. Rubenstein stands ready to back
up every statement he makes and will
stand squarely behind every piece of
merchandise he sells. What more
could one ask. Do your shopping as
soon as the sale begins so as to get
the cream of the large stock.

The Country Newspaper.
"After all, the country paper in
.eporting the wholesome life about,
s doing that which is worth while,
'or the real America is outside of the

;he strength of tile nation is rooted,
vhere its most important and prec
ous ideals are cherished.
"These country papers must be 1
;rue to country life, of which they
ire an important part, if they are
;o live and do work of the highest
ralue. Their continued effort in be
aalf of community betterment is of
nore worth to the nation than all

'God made the. country, and man
made the town," and ii that be true,
then God must certainly look kindly
