Whether the 1921 cotton crop be
more or less than originally estimat
ed, the incontrovertible fact stands
out that the yield will be less than
half the pre-war yield. And too, the
world is nearer naked than at any
other time since the days of Eden.

Governor Harding and his asso
ciates on the Federal Reserve Board
may not be responsible for the wreck
age and ruin wrought by the sudden
deflation, but mountains of argument
would not cinvince teeming millions
of American people who lie -bruised
and broken amid the financial debris
of their innocence.

- A lad recently wrote Dr. Evans,
as follows: "I am almost 17 years
old and would like to know if I can
start to smoking a pipe or cigarette?
If so, which do you think advisable?"
'f The eminent physician's laconic re
ply was, "Neither." Heed Dr. Evans,
boys, and never stain your fingers or
saturate your body with nicotine,
which will untimately sap your
strength, benumb your mental fibre,
destroy your- ambition and thus un
dermine your whole being. This is
not a fancied picture of the havoc
wrought by tobacco poison. Its vic
tims are easily observed in every
day life. The lad who becomes a cig

Give Thanks To-Morrow.
It matters not how pressing your
engagements to-morrow, whether
they be social, of a business nature
or merely pleasure seeking, do not
fail to raise your eyes heavenward
and devoutly give thanks to the
Great Giver of every good and per
fect -gift for the many blessings
which He has vouchsafed to you dur
ing thc past year. While we are pass
ing through a season in which the
Lord seems to have withdrawn his
loving favor, yet who knows but that
it is indeed *a blessing in disguise.
'VThe Lord loveth whom He chasten
?th," and as an earthly father in love
chastens a disobedient child, bestow
ing a real blessing, as realized by the
child in after years, so does our
Heavenly Father, through chasten
ing restrain us and bring us from
wandering afar back to a realiza
tion of our dependence upon Him.
Limit of Wickedness Reached.
History, unfortunately, repeats
itself in the wicked and degrading
"things of the world as much as in the
pure and beautiful and wholesome
things. In the early days of the hu
man race .certain cities became so
unspeakably wicked and debauched
.that God's curse was pronounced up
on them, and it seems that some mod
ern cities are as completely lost to all
decency as were those spoken of . in
According ?p press dispatches, Par
is is but little removed from the Tyre
and Sidon of old. The extreme de
pravity of Paris finds expression in
or is reflected by some of the new
dances, one of which has been called
the- "Adam and Eve Hug." Those who
participate in this dance at the thea
tres "appear almost totally uncloth
ed," and the dispatch further states
that "the boxes of the theatre are
nightly thronged with befurred and
bejeweled women of society."
As long as such a state of deprav
ity and demoralization exists in
Paris there is no hope for France.
But the worst part of it is, the new
things which are originated by the
devil in Paris do not remain in Par
is, but with that modern Sidon as a
centre they radiate to all parts of the
World, including America. The late
dances and most of the modern styles
that are more disgusting than beau
tiful, come to us from Paris. Would
that we were as prone to imitate the
good as the evil which we find in

Devil Will Bc Enthroned.
According to recent press reports,
a coterie of American millionaires
have purchased an island of the Ba
hama grcup, 45 miles off the coast
of Florida, for the purpose of found
ing an American Monte Carlo. Chaf
ing' under cur prohibition law, anti
race track gambling law and other
similar laws that curb the appetites
and passions of a blase element of
our citizenship, whose delight it is to
revel in excesses of all sorts, these
men propose to establish a domain of
their own, where they can indulge
without let or hindrance. The follow
ing taken from a press dispatch gives
an insight into the plans of the pro
moters of this undertaking:
"Upon this newiy acquired terri-'
tory, far removed from the prohibi
tion laws of any country, the pur
chasers plan to erect establishments
for the manufacture and sale of in
toxicants of all kinds, to build race
tracks where unrestricted racing may
.be held, a stadium for prize fights, to
gether with sumptuous hotels and all
other conveniences for the comfort
and entertainment of their patrons.
"Four large steamships, each ac
commodating 1,500 passengers are to
ply between Palm Beach and the Is
land, according to the plans of the
promoters, as well as specially built
In projecting evil upon such a
large scale, these men feel secure 45
miles out at sea, but in thus enthron
ing the devil they should bear in
mind ?that "man proposes and God
disposes." In their drunken revels
hundreds felt secure aboard the "un
sinkable" Titanic on that fateful
night but almost without warning
they were swallowed up by the icy
waters of the ocean. Having chosen
and purchased an island of the sea,
far from the annoyance of consti
tuted authority, this group of mil
lionaires may feel secure, forgetting
that "there is a Divinity that shapes

Chattanooga's Mayor Extends
City Welcome to the Old
Editor of The Advertiser:
I shall give a synopsis of the may
or's speech of welcome. Senator Fra
zier's and Gov. Taylor's speeches all
were fine. The mayor said in part:
"Among ?he inspiring memories and
traditions that have come down, from
the past, none appeal to us more
than the recollections of your
achievmexft?, your loyalty to your sa
cred cause, your sacrifices and deeds
of heroism that mark you the great
est soldiers the world ever knew. A
son of a Confederate soldier, bern of
a. rebel mother, I am most happy to
congratulate you that in the evening
of your life, when history has passed
her stern sentence upon your deeds
and your motives, our entire people
honor you and hold, your achieve
ments in affectionate memory. We
honor you for the cause for which
you fought, a cause inspired by the
great principle of constitutional lib
eray. God never planted in the breast
of man a higher principle than that
which prompted the soldiers of the
Confederacy. And let me say, 'Pal
sied be the tongue that would speak
slightly of a Confederate past and'
withered be the arm that refuses to
lift itself in praise of the virtue and
valor of the Confederate soldier.' "
At this point the mayor became
eloquent, and said, "We honor you in
memory of "that 'great Mississippi
soldier and statesman, the immortal
Jefferson Davis, of whom Benjamin
Hill said: 'He was the truest,
greatest, bravest, tenderest, manliest
man I ever knew.' We honor in mem
ory of that Christian soldier, Stone
wall Jackson, the greatest military
genius the world has ever known. We
honor you in the memory of that
thoughtful, dignified warrior, Jo
seph E. Johnson. 'We honor you in
the memory of the great Robert E.*
Lee, who left us a legacy that time
cannot touch; the fragrant memory
of a* brave, tender heart; the spotless
stainless honor of a great soldier; a
Christian life and a duty dbne. We
honor you in the memory of that
splendid body if leaders whose won
derful generalship has never been
equalled and who won for the Con
federate army a place that stands to
day unsurpassed in the war history
of the world. We honor you in the
memory of your dead comrades. In
God's own day no greater souls will
rise than those sons of the South
who fell in the service of their coun
try t under the "Stars ?nd Bars" of
the Confederacy. We honor you liv
ing soldiers of the Confederacy in the
capacity of your noble brotherhood,
which adversity has bonded together
so closely. W? offer you the hospitali
ty of a gracious people. For your en
tertainment our majestic mountains,
banked with hemlock and laurel, and
teeming with historic interest, our
miles of automobile highway drives
and through the great battlefields
made famous by you heroic deeds
and bathed with the blood of your
fallen comrades, we proffer you our
friendship and our love."
The mayor spoke in conclusion as
"In" truth, you who fought on the
historic fields need no invitation.
You have won forever the open door,
the magic of ye ir matchless valor
lifts high our gates. Let the Kings of
Glory come in. What memories of
those scenes of helf-century ago
must crowd upon; you when you see
again the gray line of battle; v-~nr
the tramp, tramp of armed soldiers,
the neighing of the battle steed, the
clear call of the bugle, and 'midst it
all you see in the pale moonlight the
still upturned face. You live again
those days of glory and honor, of
sacrifice, of superb courage and fi
delity unto death. It was here that
one of your young color bearers f?ll
mortally wounded and one,of you
rushed .and seized the fallen flag.
The poor fellow turned his dying eyes
and pleaded with you: "Oh, let me
hold it till I die.' and these things
were not in vain. We whot dwell here
well know we dwell on hallowed
ground, and what you did here in
spires us who have come after to
"The spirits of your immortal com
rades who died here beside you, are
about you today. The air is vibrant
with their voiceless welcome. Oh, im
mortal and herioc dead, come near
us; brood over us; breathe upon us
they 'blessed benedictions."
In my next I will give you a few
thoughts of how Senator .Frazier
stirred the audience with his elo
quence, and will tell also some of the '
good things the Governor of Ten
nessee said, after he got through
fiddling "Dixie." i
