Baltimore, March I'J.-Cul. Alfrod
?i. Sheppersou, of New York, well
known as ;i statistical expert in cot*
too, discussing in this week'? issue !
of the Manufacturers' Record the rela
tion of this country to the cotton sup
ply of Europe, says:
"In England, Germany and France
there is considerable discussion cf
the subject, and some practical efforts
have been made for promotion of thc
cultivation of cotton in thc colonial
dependencies of these countries.
These efforts have been chiefly made
by manufacturers and merchants, but
have reccivedthe activo encouragement
and support of the respective govern
ments. Sinoe October, 1899, mid
dling ootton in New York has not
been as low as 7 cents per pound.
During the two previous years from
September 1, 1897, to September 1,
1899, spot cotton was continuously
below 7 centH in New York, except
during thc first part of September,
1897. European spinners having be
come somewhat accustomed to the
lower prices ruling for cotton in theso
two years, it is not surprising that
they should seek to establish new
sources of production in order to re
duce the cost by increasing the sup
"Of the cotton consumed now by
thc mills of Great Britain,[continental
Europe and tho United States about
80 per cent is of tho growth of this
country. In the five years ending
August31, I860, the average propor
tion was 84} per cent. The high
prices resulting from our civil war and ?
the disorganization of thc agricultural
interests of the South which continued
for somo years thereafter induced such
an inorease of c ultivation in other
countries that it was not until 1882 ;
we furnished as much as 75 per cent. ?
of the total consumption of thc mills
of Europe and tho United Statos. For
tho five years ending with 1890, wo
furnished within a fraction of 77 per >
cent.; in tho five years ending with i
1895 wo had increased our proportion
to 79J per cont, and for tho five i
years ending with 1900 wo had fur- i
nished to the mills of Europe and ?
Amerioa 83 1-3 per cent, of their en
tire takings of ootton.
"Wo have now regained our abso
luto Bupremaoy in tho field of cotton
production, and an impartial consider- ,
ation of the ontirc situation fully justi
fies the belief that wc will retain it ,
Deal'' g with our chief competitors
in ootton production for tho European
markets, India and Egypt, Col. Shep
person, after analysis of orop figures, ,
"There is in India an abundance of
suitable land whioh could bo added to
the area now devoted to cotton, and
while some extension of ootton culti
tion may be expected it seems quito ,
evident that tho increased production ,
will be fully absorbed by tho growing ,
requirements of tho Indian ootton ,
mills. Tho genoral uncertainty in re- ,
gard to tho rainfall and , its ,
aotual insufficiency in many j
sections of India are serious draw
backs to any considerable increase in
cotton cultivation, especially when it
is considered that the average yield
per aero is only about 75 pounds of
lint cotton of a quality and a mrket
value muoh lower than American cot
He sketches tho possibilities of tho
cultivable portion of Egypt, and re
garding recent engineering feats for ir
rigation in that oountry Bays:
"The chief purpose of tho now irri
gation works wes undoubtedly to safe
guard the crops of the land al
ready undt. cultivation. There wi ii
be some extension of aoreage, but this
will be chiefly in upper Egypt, where
the ootton is much iuferior to that of
lower Egypt and brings a consider
ably lower price. Tho best opinion
is that the increase in acreage will be
gradual, as it will depend upon the con
struction of canals to take the water to
tho new fields. *** Assuming,howe vcr,

acres ?md iliut cotton will got a third j
of it, or 500,000 acre*, ?his would add j
about 250,OuO bale? to thc present I
cotton yield of Egypt. This would
probably mark the maximum of thc
Egyptian cotton crop for some yearn
to come, and it would not bo so largo
in tho seasons when other crops prom
ised a greater profit."
Col. Shepperson gives a comprehen
sive survey of the cotton possibilities
of China, Turkestan, German East
Africa, Brazil, etc., and in conclusion
"Except for a small inoreaso from
Egypt no greater contribution to the
cotton supply of Europe can ba ex
pected than at present. It is quite
possible to grow ootton in many coun
tries in which it is not now cultivated,
but whether it can bo produced in
large quantities and at a low cost and
as profitably as thc other crops, which
it would replace, is a very different
"There arc vast possibilities for tho
extension of cotton cultivation in tho
United States. According to the last
United States census there wero in
1899 in Louisiana, Texas, Arkansas,
Indian Territory and Oklahoma 40,
000,000 acres of improved land, of
which 10,000,000 acres were devoted
to cotton. New land is being con
stantly brought under cultivation in
each of theso States and Territories
and the soil is the most productive in
tho cotton belt. Theso ?fivo States
and Territories have tho requisite
area, soil and climate to cnablo them
to produce as much cotton as is now
grown in the entire country. To my
mind it in only a question of time
when this will be done. * * * Our
European friends should possess their
souls in patienco. The Southern
States of this great and progressive
country will stand between them and
the cotton famine whioh thoir imagi
nations causo to think is impending
in tho future. There will bo cotton
enough for all, and despite thc united
efforts of Europe and the reBt of man
kind tho absolute supremacy of this
country in cotton production will be
Fully maintained."-N. Y. Commer

Taxation of Bachelors.
The taxation of unmarried mon as a
sound economic principio is hoing ad
vanced seriously by European writers
on social ecienco and is a vital topio
Tor discusi?n iu this, tho favorito,
month of cupid. By a somewhat do
viou9 course of roaaoning the oonolu
sion is roached that tho modorn bach
elor is an inoubus upon society, an un
deserving objeot of charity, Bince his
living exponsos aro dofrayed in largo
measure by tho fathers of families.
Living as he does in lodgings by him
self, he makes no direct contribution
to the coffers of tho Stato in Bhape of
taxeB. Exemptions there arc, tc bs
oura, bachelors who are extensive own
ers of property upon whioh they pay
taxes, but single blessedness provides
no incentive to tho owning of ono's
Tho expenses of tho State mnst bo
met somehow and it is upon the mar
ried men of tho nation, already bur
dened with family expenses, that they
fall most hoavily. The bachelor pays
his trifling ront for a room or two and
either thinks ho has wiped out the
score or rejoices thatthoso noble phil
anthropists, the married men, are
helping him foot the bill. But the
complaint of the State against the
bachelor rests not only on fini-.ncial rea
sons. The baohclor is a shirker of re
sponsibilities, a dodger of duty, a lag
gard in the procession of progress. The
family is the foundation of the State,
the granite base that supports its
prosperity and perpetuity. But ia the
laying of this foundation the bachelor
plays no part. He lives unto himself
alone. His interest in all public
questions that affect the family must,
neceessarily, be but lukewarm, and it
is difficult to enlist his activities in
public affairs. Tho voluntary bach
elor is selfishness personified. So it
ia proposed to try taxing him. "Whoro
singleness is bliss 'tis folly to havo
wives," says some cynic, artfully
adapting the old adage to suit his
jaundiced point of view, and too many
of the present mascualine generation
prove poor targets for cupid's arrows.
Will taxing tho bachelor do any good,
and is not the poor creature miserable
enough as it ie, without adding to his
sorrows? CT Should ho be forocd to pay
for a homo and yet .iOt enjoy its bene
fits? These are questions that oannot
be answered off-hand, but deserve the
most thoughtful consideration.-Tho

Tbero were three of them, aud thoy
came HO swiftly that they looked like
three yellow streaks across the mesa.
Their partially suppressed "yip, yip,"
could be heard as they ran, and the
eagerness with which they made for a
goal somewhere in the distance show
ed plainly that they were not pursued,
but that they were pursuing.
Suddenly, one of them wheeled
about and sat upon his haunches, the
while keeping his eyes on some object
that I could not yet make out. Then
there were only two yellow streaks
disappearing to the northward. With
my field glass I watohed them.
Perhaps half a mile further on an
other dropped out of the run and sat
down. The remaining streak of yel
low turned to the cast fer nearly a
half mile, then, ran south until he
rcaohed a point about midway between
thc other two coyotes-for that's
what they were. He also sat down.
"Now, what are the prairie sneaks
up to anyway," I muttered.
So I watched to find out.
To the west I heard a tramp of
swift hoofs and in a moment there
thundered by me, within a stone's
throw, a magnificent buck deer. His
antlers were thrown back, his fine
neck was grandly curved, and he came
like a whirlwind, each bound covering
not loss than twelve or fifteen feet. .
Drawing the glass on thc coyotes, I
observed that they wero still at the

nearby and a fourth coyote passed j
"O, ho! So you are to catch the j
deer, are you, Mr. Skulk? That's a
good joke, for you will never sink
your teeth into that carease."

On he went. The country was |
open and level. There was only a
smattering of cactus and wire grass on
the sandy ground. The coyote- gained
on the quarry. He ciroled to the
west, southwest and then south. He
turned ?hu duuf.
The first of ?he three sqn&tting yel
low fiends lay flat on the ground and
waited while tho deer was being driv
en toward him. Was he foolish onough
to think that ho could bring down the
big game as it passed ?
Without a sound he sprang up to
tho chase and the aoyote whioh had
drivon the deer to where he lay, drop
ped out and seated himself ezaotly
where the other had been. The
chase oontiuued, now to the north, on,
Pursued and pursuer neared the
second wily beast and now he crouch
ed as oloae to the ground as ho oould.
Then, at tho proper moment ho was
up and away while the one that had
driven the deer to him took up the
vieil whinh his aomrade of tho race
had left. To the north the fleeing
buok dashed on; was slowly turned to

The eoyote was at his heels, for the
game was becoming tired. The deer
was on a straight line to the north
ward now, direotly toward the third
yellow sohomer that watohed carefully
tho mad flight ; and when his turn

Marveling at the ingonuity of ti *>
ooyotes I gradually realized the trend
of their ?cheme.
Again the deer passed me, this
time to the north. He had been
chased in a oomdlete oirole, and, in
turn, each of the four fresh enemies
had done his part of the work. Once
more he was turned. Again the ooy
otes fell in in turn, doing perfect re
lay work, and this was kept up until,
exhausted, tho big buok oould no
longer keep out of the reach of the
Quiokly the four wolves noticed
this and - with a series of wild yelps
they made for the viotim in a bunch.
One snapped at tho deer's throat, an
other at the heels to lame him and an
other sprang at the sides. He soon
went down, exhausted.
"That's how you get your dinner,
is it, Mr. Prairie Wolf?"
Then I took a hand in it.
"Craok, crack!" said my rifle.
"Yi, yi, yi, yi! Ou-o-o-o!"'
Then there was one yellow streak
hopping painfully across the mesa.
Closer I ran.
Another, which would never be a
yellow streak again, rolled orer in the
sard and the remaining two scamper
ed away, snarling and yelping at hav
ing been cheated out of their meal.
The deer gained his feet. He did
not recognise in me a friend; and,
puffing and tottering, but, defiant,
stood ready to have it ont with me
should I attack him. Of course, he
could easily have been dispatohed
with the rifle, but-ho had made suoh
a gallant race for his life.
Besides, why should he be wanton
ly destroyed ?
Far to the north, seated on a little
knoll, eat the tn re J ooyotes waiting
for me to leave so that they might re
turn ; but I stayed until finally the
deer trotted away to the timber of the
mountain side and was soon lost to
view. A howl of disappointment rang
over inc ujesa ana 1 ?tioutcd "Good

they disappeared on tho Verizon.
N. V. Sa--.
Tile Lieu Farmer.
Along with the whistling of the
March wind, the gentle oooing of the
dove and the mournful wail of tho
whippoorwill comes the alluring an
nouncement of the city and town mer
chant: "My books are open, lien
time has come, guano h?s arrived,
plenty of mules and horses on time,
abundance of corn, flour, baoon, etc.,
can he had for good paper." And
now may the farmer, who ploughs a
Western mu lc, hitched to a foreign
made ploughstock, io imported gear,
and whose smoke-house and oom crib
is in the West, wend his joyful way
to market, mortgage his mule and
milch cow., give a lien on his crop,
buy his manure and get supplies on a
credit until his crop is "laid by," when
the lien loses its virtue so far as get
ting ratious is concerned. What
then? "Shift for yourself, hunt work,
get some flour and go to tho blackber
ry patch." When the ides of Novem
ber come this dormant lien raises its
hideous head, and along with wintry
ico and shrill shriek of screech owl is
heard thc merciless tramp of an officer
of the law, and the crop, whose valuo
was consumed before it was made, is
surrendered or seized, and if this is
not sufficient, the voracious mortgage,
vulturelike, devours its prey, in many
instances not leaving enough to tempt
a visit from "Santa Glaus" to the thin
ly clad, half expectant children on
Christmas morn. Of course, this is
not a general thing, but, too often,
thc mac who Irans on a lien iu the
spring and summer, when fall comes
is lean himself, has alean, despondent
wife, lean children, lean stock and a
corn crib and smoke-house that need
no look. The merohant is not to
blame, for if the lien aud mortgage
were not given by the farmer they
could not be enforced, nor is the culti
vator of the soil wholly at fault, be
cause conditions are such that credit
cannot otherwise bo obtained. There
is but one remedy: Make our meat
and broad at home. Let cotton be a
