Queen Mary of England evidently
has no use for the loud, last society
women whose chief ambition seems
to be to imitate some of the vices
of society men. Considering the
moral and social influence which roy
alty in Great Britain exerts upon the
?people this attitude of the queen will
have*a salutary effect.
It will be very nutrh like "march-'
ing to the top of the hill and march
ing down again" if all that follows
the Supreme Court decision is a reor- i
ganization of the Standard Oil Com-!
pany. Probably, most people think
that .the head officials who were re
sponsible for violating law should be
dealt with along criminal lines, and;
will be disappointed if they are not.
Many politicians and business men
who are accused, of political corrup
tior would get people to more readily
.believe their protestation of inno
cence if they would abstain from try
ing to bleck investigation. To raise
technical objections and twist and
squirm to prevent enquiry is a poor
way*, to convince people of their
Sommer in the Country.
Summer days have a relaxing: in
fluence. The schoolboy finds it hard
to give his thoughts and time to
study and he counts every day until
school closes. Then if he is so for
cunate to live in or near the country
he hies away to the swimming hole
or to the stream wliere fish abound,
and he can get more fun and catch
more fish with a bent pin and a rod
cut from a nearby tree ? than the
adult who comes from the city with
his patent up-to-dat? fishing outfit.
And the business man who has
been content through the long winter
time to toil faithfully behind desk
or counter also feeis the call of the
summer and its association of leafy
woods, sparkling waters and pure
air. Perhaps in reminiscent mood
his thoughts go back to boyhood
days in the old farm house and the
temptation is strong to throw down
the pen and obey the call to get
back to the land oven If it be but
for a few brief weeks.
In truth, in most people there is
a good deal of the primitive rusticity
of their remote ancestors which cen
turies of conventionalism and civili
zation have failed to eradicate. And
it crops out in summertime when the
desire Is so strong to get back to
nature, and in the rude simple camp
life of the woods enjoy a freedom,
action and elasticity of spirits to
which one is a stranger in the more
fashionable and more artificial life
of the city.
And while this would not do as
a regular thing, ir. is good to occa
sionally revert to it. The bow must
be unbent sometimes or it becomes
useless. And the busy man of affairs
realizes that it rays "every way to
let up a little in the bright summer
time and respond to the beckoning
call of mother nature. Most of us
spend too much time in the mad rush
for the almighty dollar, and for
get the better and nobler things of
life which lie all about us.
The South Holding Its Own.
The Richmond Times Dispatch
says that it is shown by the new
national apportionment bill that the
south is holding is own in the mat
ter of increasing population. It has
made a better showing than either
New England or the middle west. The
Times-Dispatch t'.en gives some in
teresting Information concerning the
reapportionment of the membership
of the national house of representa
The old ratio of representation
was one member of the house of re
presentatives for every 194,192 pop
ulation; the new ratio will be one
member for every 211,877. Under
the new apportionment only two New
England state will gain. Massachu
setts will get two new members and
Rhode Island one. The south, count
ing in Oklahoma, gains 10 new mem
bers: Oklahoma gets thrr.a new mem
bers, Texas 2 and Georgia, Florida,
Alabama, Louisiana and West Vir
Forty - two . additional members
will be added to the house. If the
old membership btood under the new
apportionment, twelve states would
lose a total of thirteen members, Il
linois, Kansas, Iudianna, Ohio, Wis
consin, Nebraska, Kentucky, North
Carolina, Tennessee, and Virginia
would lose one member while Missou
ri would lose two. The Pacific states
make the best showing of increased
population, excerpt New York and
Pennsylvania, vhich gain six and
four members, respectively. Those
twosstates have the advantage of be
ing the first stopping places of armies
of foreign immigrants.

Some Cotton Figures.
The iMemphhi Commercial-Appeal
has received reports from its cor
respondents which indicate that the
area planted to. cotton this year
shows an increase over 1910 of 4.6
per cent. The lontgomery Adver
tiser?with reports at hand from
every county in Alabama?believes
that a similar .increase in that State
will reach 7 per cent. On the face
of these reports it looks as if there
might be value in continuing the
promulgatoin of the diversification
The amount of cotton which the
world will take readily even at
prices approximating the present
market is somewhat less than 20,
000,000 bales. Of this, countries out
side Of the United States are estimat
ed to be producing 8,000,000, which
allows 11,000.000 or 12,000,000
bales for the South to raise. The
logic of such a situation leads in
evitably to the conclusion that it is
not increased acreage but intensified
cultivation that our planters should
A crop of 12..000,000 bales may be
raised upon very much less ground
than is at present devoted to cotton
culture here In the South. The soli
thus freed may be devoted most prof
itably to any one of a dozen pur
poses. Fifteen cent cotton is mak
ing 1911 a very different yevx from
1898, when the highest point reached
by middling on che New York market
was G 9-16, but this should not be i
considered equivalent to a demons
tration that cotton is the only crop)
the cotton belt can raise with profit.!
Seclusive Shoddy Aristocrats.
Two or thrt-e men who applied for
membership in some exclusive society
clubs have been blackballed because
they were "self-made" men. That
they were successful business men,
men of ability and character could
not outweigh the disgrace of being
self made. If only they had descend
ed from the suttlers and bandits who
accompanied William the Conqueror
to England how different would have
been the result. The snobs, who
miscall themselves Americans, would
have welcomed them with open arms.
One cannot help wondering how far
removed in point of descent from be
ing self-made are the very men who
did the blackballing. Probably their
fathers or grandfathers dug ditches
or did some other honorable but
menial labor These exclusive and
