There is ho encourgaement in
Tuesday's election for President Taft.
His home city, which is nominally
Republican went Democratic by a
?good majority. The Democrats cap
tured several other cities of Ohio.
It is rather significant for a Repub
lican eta to like Kansas to send a lie
tariff reform Democrat to Congress
in place of a dead standpat Repub
lican. President Taft should make
a note of this.

nese minister to the United States, in

Republican form of government in
Gov. Foss, of Massachusetts, was

It is in order for that clergyman

The vexed question of whether
Thanksgiving should be held on Nov

the later date. If It means that the
small l)oy has to wait another week
for a slice of turkey and mince and
pumpkin pie, it also means that the
turkey will have one more week to
fatten for the dinner.
The latest political gossip at
Washington is that th? old guard Re
publicans have despaired of electing
Taft for a second term, and are se
cretly working up a sentiment in fav
or of Supreme Court Justice Hughes
as a Republican premdential candi
date and are conducting a gum-shoe
campaign in his behalf throughout
trustlana. We believe the trusts will
find it as hard to elect Hughes as
they would to re-elect Taft.
After It became known early Wed
nesday morning that Grace was elect
ed mayor of Charleston on the face of
the return's, some of his followers
went to the News and Courier office,
the Consolidated Company and bro:.e
in the front doors with sticks and
st-'nes. They also visited the resi
dence of Mayor Rbett and made a
noisy demonstration against that gen
tleman. It was a good thing for
Grace that his rowdies were held in
check until a:*ter the voting, or the
result might have been different.
One of the most significant results
of Tuesday's voting was the election
of Jas. A. Taggart from the Second j
Ksnsas District to Congress over
Ulysses '3. Guyer, his Republican op
ponent, by a majority of 1,200. The
eleotion was to fill the unexpired
term of the late Republican chair
man, A. C. Mitchell. Mitchell carried
the district in 1910 by 3,430 over
John Caldwell, Democrat. There had
1 'ie a change of nearly five thous-j
i votes from the Republicans to
i ? Democrats. Kansas is a rock
ii.:'.>ed Republican State.
State-Controlled Cotton Warehouses.
One of the most significant and
certainly one of the soundest propo
sitions, from an economic standpoint
?advanced by the recent conference
of southern governors, was a recom
mendation to the effect that the vari
ous state governments of the South
lend their encouragement to the es
tablishment of state-bonded cotton
warehouses. The plan largely paral
lels that already authorized by con
stitutional amendment In Louisiana.
The people of the latter common
wealth voted to allow private parties
to erect a gigantic model warehous
ing plant, equipped with the latest
modern appliances and fire safe
guards, subject to regular and rigid
inspection, so that the receipts for
the cotton stored therein should have
all the validity in the world's money
markets of a state-stamped paper.
It will be noticed, as the Atlanta
Constitution points out, that this
plan does not contemplate that any
extra expense shall be put upon the
tax-payers. The ware-houses are to
be erected and maintained by private
enterprise and fixed charges. There
is no reason why the same plan, or
some modification of it, should not
prevail in every state of the cotton
belt. One of the chief menaces to a
stable price for cotton is the fact that
it is, as a rule, dumped on the mar
ket, within three or four months of
its being harvested. The facilities
for holding it are extremely limited,
and only within recent years have
they been generally placed at the dis
posal of the farmers.
A cotton warehouse operating un
der the authority of a sovereign
state would mean the extension of
the soiling period over the year, in
stead of over a period of one-quarter
of the year. It would mean that the
farmer depositing his cotton therein,
provided it came up to specifications,
could negotiate loans on the receipt
therefor and discharging his imme
diate obligations, hold his cotton un
til the market responded to the legit
imate influences of supply and de
mand. This system, in conjunction
with a reasonable method of fore
casting the world's probable con
sumption, would come as near hedg
ing the South against loss on the sta
ple as is open to human devices. Er
raticism in the market would be re
duced to a minimum and the millions
now annually sacrificed would go
where they belong?to the farmer,
and through him, Into every South
ern business channel
The Constitution truly says if any
olhpr section possessed the royal as
set of the cotton crop it would have
long ago adopted some such proced
ure. So long as the South fails to do
so, it is depriving itself of a source
of just revenue and giving it as so
much velvet to other factors In the
commercial world. It Is time the
South was coming to the rescue of
the men who are making her rich
and great. What helps the cotton
planter, helps every man in the'South
as well as in the nation. They have
been robbed and plundered by specu
lators too long, and it should end,
and end at once. Who will lead the
movement in South (Carolina A
good leader in each Southern State
is all that is lacking to make state
controlled warehouses a grand suc
cess and save to the cotton farmers
of the South millions of dollars.
Fifteen Million Rales Needed.
With the publication of govern
ment estimates to the effect that the
world demand for cotton .the ap
proaching season will approximate
15,000,000 bales, the bottom should
drop from the bear market, and cot
ton should rise in price at once. In
this issue we publish the Associated
Press dispatch sent out from Wash
ington that the world will need over
fifteen million bales of American cot
ton. According to this government
report, world-wide in its sources and
official, if cotton is worth a cent to
civilization, it is worth not less than
Consuls from around .the globe tell
Washington that world consumption,
ending next September, will be in ex
cess of 12,500,000 bales. This es
timate excepts Italy and England.
The former country will take in the
neighborhood of half a million bales
of American cotton, the latter, nearly
three million. Consolidating these
statistics and making due and con
servative discount, it appears that
world demand for the year will be
in the neighborhood of 15,000,000
bales. The Atlanta Constitution says
in the face of these seeming reliable
facts, the attempt of market thimble
riggers to take advantage of the
ft^ars of the cotton producer because
the crop is large is nothing short of
Hold your cotton. The bankers of
the south, the merchants of the
south, southern business men gener
ally are equally interested in seeing
that the section is not actually trick
out of millions of dollars. It should
be a simple business transaction for
r>.ll factors to co-operate in financing
"distress" cotton, in advancing mon
ey needed to hold cotton until the
world learns that the south will not
be mulcted of a just return for the
most important staple in civilization.
Read the government statistics. An
alyze them. Then hold your cotton.
In the language of the Contsitu
tion, why could not the government
have compiled these estimates before
three or four million bares went on
the market at unjust prices? Why
should it be literally coerced into aid
ing the producer, when it has, here
tofore, appeared so eager to save the
hide of the welching bear gambler?
The National Agricultural Depart
ment by its false and unwarranted
crop estimates robbed the cotton
planters of the South of millions of
dc liars. Congress should investigate
its open espousal of the bear cause in
the cotton market.
Numbers Instead of Names.
How would it do to number instead
oT naming children until they reach
an age when their bodies and minds
are developed and their characteris
tics displayed beyond a doubt?
While as a rule the present system
may work all right not unoften the
names given are a sort of misfit. It
is rather incongruous that a hot,
quick-tempered woman ehould bear
the name of "Patience," or that one
tipping the scales at 250 pounds
should be known at "Tiny," "Lily,"
"Daisy" or ""Birdies." And so with
men. It makes one smile that some
peor creature "who dare not call his
soul his own has such a misfit name
as "Lycurgus," tnat one mentally de
ficient should go through the -world
as "Solon," that a domineering un
charitable egotist should be introduc
ed to society as "Robert E. Lee," and
that a "George Washington" should
be a mean, low down derelict. The
ancient Jews and other nations gave
names that reflected some character
istic or that spoke of some notable
achievement, and often on occasion
they changed a man's name. Such a
practice cannot well be followed In
these days, but it might be well for
some parents to show greater discrim
ination in the names they give their
children and not weigh them down
through life with some absurdity.

When the Doctor Failed to Help
Mrs. Moncrief, She Helped
Herself With Cardui.
Belton, Tex.?In a letter written
from this place. Mrs. Ethel Moncrief
says: "I suffered with womanly
troubles ever since I first entered wo
manhood. The doctors failed to help,
so I began with Cardui. From the
first, I could see good results, and I
kept on taking it. I was relieved of
all my dreadful suffering. Cardui has
built up my system, and my friends are
all surprised to see the good results I
obtained. Cardui is as good a doctor
as any woman needs. It can't be beah.
I cannot praise Cardui too highly."
For more than half a century, Cardui
has been used successfully to prevent
unnecessary pains caused by womanly
troubles, sucn as headache, backache,
side ache, dragging sensations, etc.
It also acts as a general tonic, for the
weak, tired, worn-out womanly system.
Whether seriously sick, or clmply
weak and ailing, take Cardui.
It helped a million others.
It will help you, too.
