Cotton Acreage.Must be Ex
panded, Says U. S. Attache.
Washington, April 22-The world's
?cotton acreage must undergo a very
miarked expansion in the years to
.come if the supply of raw cotton is
to keep pace with the world's needs,
Alfred P. Dentis, American commer
cial attache at .London, reported to
"the department of commerce after an
.exhaustive study of the world's capa
city for consuming cotton goods.
At the present time, he said, there
is a record carry-over of raw cotton.
Combined with this there is an im
?nense amount of underproduction
in the chief cotton spinning centers
of the world. There ' has been a
marked setback to the purchasing:
pow?r of the world in the amount of
cotton goods and a corresponding [
setback to the production of cotton.
"It is obvious," says Mr. Dennis,
""that the world has emerged from the
war with a production capacity of
raw cotton considerably below its re
quirements. Coincidentally there has
"been a marked decline in the output
of manufactured cotton stuffs, that,)
5n turn, being a reflection of reduced
buying power in the great consuming
?centers of the world.
"'With a return of the world to a nor- j
rmal state of economy, buying will be
^resumed, idle and short time looms
and spindles will be speeded up, and
an insistent demand for raw material
anay be anticipated. Farsighted repre
sentatives of the British cotton trade
are already agitating the question of
' increasing the^ production of raw cot
-ton within the empire.
. "It seems established that the need
of the world for cotton goods within
"the near future will grow more rapid
ly-than will the extension of cotton
crowing areas. Increase in the supply
of cotton depends very largely on the
.?finding of fresh cotton territory and
improving the strains of existing
"The crop in America, which has
>baen averaging for the five years,
1895-99, 10,000,000 bales, jumped,
"ten years later or for the five years,
1910-14 to an average of 13,500,000
bales. Production in other countries
also increased. The inference must
be accepted, therefore, that through
the increase in the world's population
and through the extension of con
sumption to new markets, as well as
.through the inclusion of cotton into
mew utilities, such as automobile tires,
the world required an increase in its
supply of cotton. It is statecj on high
authority th?t the world in 1914 was
in a position to absorb in manufac
tured goods at least 700,000 'bales of
cotton more each year than consumed
.the year before.
"One of the prime factors in the
^present day equation is the impover
ishment of the world. Trade with
i both Russia and Germany has amount
. cd to little, and while the capacity in
igeneral of central and eastern Eu- j
xope to buy cotton goods has not been
destroyed it has been greatly im-|
Awaits New Attitude.
Boston, April 22.-Normalcy in busi
ness awaits a new attitude of man
toward his job, James S. Alexander,
president of the National Bank of
?Commerce, of New York, said in an
address tonight at the annual banquet
of the National Association of Cotton
Manufacturers. Correction of the
business and social confusion of the
. time must be sought, he said, riot only
'. in banking and business adjustments,
"iljut more particularly in the human
"Already substantial progress has
been made toward a return to sounder
.' conditions," according to the speaker,
.."but the time has not come for a.re
laxation of coution. The weight of
chance is against speculative under
takings." . .
Conditions in the rural districts of
the South were described as worse
than in the days of slavery by David
R. Coker, a South Carolinian cotton
.grower, in addressing a convention
"The average farm laborer in the
South receives just enough to keep
body and soul together," he said.
"The return to the small growers and
i ?aborers is not enough to keep them
: in a decent state of civilization. The
; present price paid for cotton in the
! South is only a little more than one
iiialf the cost of production."

Why Honey Doesn't Carry
Honey is a raw product. Bees
searching for food and water often
visit places where they might become
carriers of disease germs. Do they do
it? Does honey ever spreadi disease?
Hitherto, there has been theory on
the subject, but little exact data. An
investigator at the Colorado Agri
cultural Station, Dr. Walter G. Sack
ett, has made experiments revealing
some illuminating facts about the
healthfulness of honey.
He took bacteria causing the com
mon intestinal troubles,, and intro
duced them into solutions of honey
and water. In pure water these bac
teria lived forty days or more. In a
solution of honey and water the
length of life decreased as the pro
portion of honey was made greater.
In extracted honey, undiluted, the
bacteria lived only two to four days.
The conclusion from the investi
gation was that the chance of con
tracting an intestinal disease from
honey was very markedly less than
from water, milk or other substances
containing water. Indeed, honey ap
pears to protect itself against bac
teria, in the common process of pro- J
duction and sale. Any bacteria left
in it by the bees will ordinarily be
dead before the honey is taken from
the hive. If bacteria are introduced
during the process of extraction
which is done with clean apparatus
and under clean conditions, usually
-they will be dead and harmless long
before the honey is consumed, ordi
narily. Extracted honey reaches the
consumer usually in a glass jar which
is a safeguard against contamination
while waiting to be sold.
This is only one of the admirable
characteristics of honey that apiar
ists believe adequate research will
determine. It has many suspected vir- j
tues, and others which are claimed,
but not yet supported, which apiarists
believe investigation would reveal or
confirm.-Farm and Ranch.
