of liberty bells, combined with draper

room effectually carried ouc the same
id >a, the table Itself portraying the
national flag. Above tbe caudlabra
in the cautre of the table was t.uipen
ded t' e emblematic bird, which was
kept w. Is in motion. A spirit of gaye

A WOu) TO MOTHJSKS.
They Should be Careful Who the
Chlldn n \asociate With.
It is an ancient (Greek proverb
whloh says, "Give yoar cnild to be
educated by a slave and instead of
one slave you will hav* tv?^ " Tbe
significance of these wor be
carefulbjt-consida.red by motners who
nave thtir children's highest welfare
ac heart. Mothers who allow their
children to spend hours each day with
ouance employees upon the farm, are
often horrified to finl a precious little
one using vulgar language or relating
a striy bit of gossip qu'te beyond his
youthful yean,; influences of early
life upon charseter are strong, and
true it is that even a mature person
of a refined nature, coming in contact
wich immorality will imbibe some
thing of the grossness.
Strangers frequently are placed
upon the farm ;o work, and t* e chil'4
dren allowed to go with them where
Inclination may let d; often this prove,
Ugaly ii:jiri.jus to the child; the
mother is, indeed, worth little if she
has not sufficient wisdom to advisee
control, to encourage and to point oub
ohe dangers and difficulties that boset
the paths and to gain a strong hold
upon the children by daily cucnpan
icnshlr; It is not necessary to belong
to a d zm clubs to impress us with
the importance of intimate compan
ion ship that should exist b etween
mother and children. We du not
ated more club worlc but more well
directed individual ? ffjrt.
Duriig a child's very ear'y years,
he is constantly in need of a?sl3'v.aoce
from the mother, hence is olosely as
sociated witu her. No one can give
the little attentions quite so satisfac
torily as the mother. It is the moth
er who can soothe the grief and re
move the difficulties In such a piec
ing manner, Is is duricg these early
years, whan the mother is a constant
aecrsslcy to the child, that she must
lay the foundation for the compan
ionship f.jr future years. The right
of motherhood only, does not confei
confidence and respect of children,
but to propsrly govern the children a
mother mast be all she wishes her
children to bscome. If she allows
uerself to display fits of temper can
**?e punish r;he children when they do
the same thing?
U?iiura? g(*iu fslae ideas by being
allowed to so closely associate with
the transient help on the farm.
Mothers saould not allow vulgar
stories repeated in their children's
presence. It was a wise mother that
jaid to a woman whose wit consisted
in Celling stories: "Mrs. M. I must
ask you not to repeat such stories in
the presence of the children, their Ut
ile minds are occupied with taeir les
sons, their games and music and 1
im trying to keep them unsullied."
Tula mother was bendihg all her eQ
orgies toward making the lives of her
children pure and beautiful within
and without. When a woman be
ornes a mother she becomes a model
smether'sne wills it or not. It Is
;ea!ly a n ?ble mother who can bj ex
ample teach her children patienca
oheer fulness, hopefulness and studi,

THE SO?TaiSTaE ONLY COUN
TRY TSAT CAN GBO ?V COTTON.
The Cotton Growing Associations of
the United Kingdom, Germany
and France Accomplish Lit le.
The Orop Reporter which Is pub -
Ushed by authority of the Secretary
0 Agriculture, gives us some straight
iao;s as to tbe efforts to grow cotton
auroad, in competition with the South
ern S?ates. Tne wnole thing is a dis
mal failure. From original aud official
sources of information ic is possible to
o jmpiie a statement of tbe production
of commercial cotton in the colonies
of European countries aud the bare
statement of the facts shown bow lit
tle there is to ba expected frcm "col
onial cotton" in new areas as a compe
titor of tbe upland cotton of tbe South
ern States for many years to come.
O d cotton areas such as tbe British
Eist indies, Frencn I od tu C ilna, and
i,ne Duica Etst I idles, are out of tne
problem, altnough tbese regions are.
included in the accompanying tabular
statements. Excluding tbe British
East Indies, tne produutioa of export*.
3l cotton for all Britisa cjiouies, de
pandeneies, and protectorates (tot in
c u liug Egypt) axiou iced in 1901 to
7,?70 ualea of bat of 500 pounus gross
weigot. Tbis is mostly commercial
couton, aud nearly nali 'cf it came
from western Africa, in tne Nigeria
region, Toe West ladies aud British
Gu.aua contributed. 1,6.6 oales, and
-Cyprus aud JMolta, in the Mediteranean
Sea, contributed 1,463 bales; from
eastern Africa were exported 609
bales; from central Africi and Ugan
da, 642 bales; from southern Africa, 3
Odleb; and frum Australiasla, 18 balei.
The British colonial crop of 1904
mostly commercial, exc uding Bntisn
Eist I idiej, was Garee Dimes the crop
ut 19J3. If tne entire increase in ali
British colonies, except the Eist In
dies is to be accreuiied to eiforts of
cue British co&ton manufacture? tu
become independent of tne upland
cotton of tbe United Soates, wh.cu is
not to be assuuitd fuhy, the sum of
the results of the eft i fc for oue year
(1904 amounts to 5 073 bales, and less
?nan naif of this couun is at ail Use
the upiaad cotton of this country.
A abatement for four years tus been
prepared for the cotton producing and
exporting colonies of FraLCJ. From the
total of tuese it is proper to exemde
French Indo Cnina, which is not at
all implicated in the problem of pro
duclug cotton in new cjlunlal regi me,
and had a commercial crop of 13.679
500-pound bale3 in 19J3.
Most of the colonial grown cotton of
France, ou&sido of Iauo-Calna, Is ex
ported after ginning. Tue latest in
iormatlon obtainable is for 1903, dur
ing whicn year as many as 76 oales of
500 pounds gross weight were exported
from French colonies, and nearly all
of this was exported from Tahiti
Mayottee exported a little over one
bale and Senegal a little over two
bales. M dagasoar has barely more
than half a bile to its credit, and
Guadeloupe less tnan one bale.
According to the prospectuses of
the German Associatim or. Manufac
turers to promote ??tCorj growing in
the colonies, which have been widely
publisned as aucomplisaed facts, the
quautity of colonial grown cotton for
ooinmeicial purposes tuignt beexp&cj

Tne statements with regard to the
German experiments in regions in
vcotem Africa are often extremely
coLfhc?ing, although emenanting from
professedly must-Worthy sources. Tue
oth;ial statements are tnat In 1904
Ge/ 'uan Eist Africa exported 868 bales
01 500 pounds gross weigat; Togo, 499
b-vi-;.-.; or, Lhe>e two coto.iies togetuer,
1,367 bales. To th s may be aaded tae
?e:uidQ colony New Guinea, irira
waioa (Bismark Aronlpelago) 240
bales were exported in 19o3. jj?nU3 toe
cjtton exports of German colonies
amouut to 1 607 Halen of lint reduced
to tne equivalent of 500 poua'.is gross
weight. German experiments nave
been made id Kamerun aud in German
Southwest Africa, but tnelr success in
my degree is s<,lll in doubt. A few
cotton growing exp rimenis have been
ma?e in tue Italian Eist Africa colouv
of Somalia, bub witu no detinite re
sults. Tue Italian colony of Eritrea
exported about eignt 500 pound bales
In tae United Kingdom, Germany,
aud France tnere are associations of
cotton nunulact.uri.-r3 for the purpose
of promoting the produotion of cob
ton in ne* regions in tne colonies to
toes? countries, ana the total eviriet:c.
