Our Cotton Letter.
All ye that have a comfortable Beat
on your cotton just sit BtiU and walt,
for the game has been won Just as
soon as the count ls In and the chaps
Vthe cash to pay In.
" hat bluff that has been passing
rounds In the papers about the
Texas merchants resolutlng about
not furnishing cotton growers more
supplies unless they sign a contract
to turn, their cotton loose just aa
soon as the cotton is ginned, sound?
like a grower was just being made
Co sell his cotton anyway, whether he
paid his bjlls or not. The selling of
. the cotton ls the main point In that
It ls now In order for the Texas
farmers to get together and pass res
olutions not to sign away themselves
to any such a proposition of slavery
aa these merchants offer them. But
on the contrary to pass resolutions
to pin their faith and business to
those that have proven themselves
to bo friends to farmers in this try
ing hard 'fight and stick to your
friends that have stood by you in
this, the toughest fight for right that
the Southern farmer has ever won,
and win he will.
c Our Way Ont of lt.
jH> We had better cut acreage in cot
fy^r next year than to undertake a
t large crop again, which is sure to
weaken your strength by growing
more cotton than you are able to
hold for profitable prices. |
Never once think you can g ? ow
more cotton than the trade will be
eager for at profitable prices to the
grower, and load up with an > over
production of unsalable cotton at
profitable prices, unless you are one
among that rare class of farmers
that are able to put In the necessary
additional capital to grow another
crop while you carry over this sur
plus or unprofitable crop for better
Commence now and prepare your
selves for trouble again next year In
another form. Be on the safe side,
and never again bind yourselves over
under the burden of debt that ties
your liberty and freedom In ,the
hands of your enemies. Do not un
dertake the. job of acting the fool
yourself and then expect some one
else to pay for it.
Financial panics may come In all
their force, destruction and woe,
Sleety /snow., winter rains and ile ree
v.,?-...Storms may blow,
But the farmer who grows his
farm supplies at home, can sit still,
live off of his home-made supplies
whilst he may wait for these pesti
lential storms, to pass away without
even entering his gate.
Credit ls something like an edged
tool. If you use lt too much in
rough places it will become dull.
. Low priced cotton and high priced
fertilizer notes, corn, flour, bac/n
and other bills are, rough.things to
think ahouWHn '?rre^TOnectfoh.
('beer up, farmers, oil you that
i^are- feeling blue, just go and call on
some real good farmer who has plen
ty of home grown supplies at his
house and watch him go right along,
working, eating, feeding his animals
on home stuff nnd attending to his
own affairs just the sanie as if a
New York panic had not como to
That is the kind of farmer that is

onstrated here by the speed tests for
locomotives, made by the Pennsyl

ARE YOU GOING HOM IO ?
(By Hugh J. Hughes.)
Are you going back for Christmas to
the valley where the stars
Rise clear above the mountain;,
crowned with timber lattice
Where the farmsteads nestle closely
up against the hills' ascent,
And the brook creeps hither-thither
in Its maze of wllderment?
Are you /"toing home for Christmas
to the old house by the tree:
To the old foks waiting-waiting
through the many years that be;
To the faces and the memories and
phantoms that recall
The music of the summers before
you left it all?
Tho eyes are growing dimmer that
look down the valley side,
Evermore a watching-watching
for a swinging boyish stride;
The hair ls growing whiter and the
face thin and drawn
Of those who 'mid the twilight stand
walting for the dawn.
Lock up the shop-the office! Go
hack your thousand ways
Along the lines of living to boy
hood's dawning days!
Go set the old home ringing with
laughter's music bars,
And find your lost youth waiting In
the valley 'neath the stars.
When the stomach, heart or kid
ney nerves get weak, then these or
gans always fall. Don't drug the sto
mach, nor stimulate the heart or kid
neys. That ls simply a makeshift.
Get a prescription Known to drug
gists everywhere as Dr. Shoop's Re
storative. The Restorative is pre

Shoop's Restorative-tablets or li
