All Things Are To Be Had If One
Will Pay the Equivalent.
Life consists almost entirely ol
buying, selling, paying. There are
no gifts, nothing that does not call
for an equivalent. If we cannot pay
for gifts in kind we must pay in
gratitude or service or we shall rank
as moral bankrupts.
If I would have a good situation I
must pay for it not only in labor,
but in promptness, intelligence faith
fulness and good manners. If I
would have good service I must pay
not only in money, but in considera
tion. recognition, appreciation, fair
ness. I can hold no one to me it
I misuse him.
All things are to be had for the
buying. Would you have friends?
Then pay the price. The price of
friendship is to be worthy of friend
ship. The price of glory is to do
something glorious. The price of
shame is to do something shameful.
Friendship, glory, honor .admira
tion, courage, infamy, contempt,
hatred, are all in the market place for
sale at a price. We are buying and
selling these things constantly as we
will. Even beauty is for sale. Plain
women can gain beauty by cultiva
ting grace, animation, pleasant speech,
intelligence, helpfulness, courage or
good will. Beauty is not in the fea
ture alone: it is in the soul also.
Good will buy good will, friend
liness buys friendship, confidence be
gets confidence. service rewards serv
ice, and hate pays for hate, suspicion
for suspicion, treachery for treachery,
contempt for ingratitude, slovenli
ness, laziness and lying.
We plant a shrub, a rosebush, an
orchard, with the expectation that
they will pay us back. We build
roads, mend harness and patch the
roof with the same expectation. We
will trust even these, unconscious
things to pay their debts.
Some of our investments are good
and some are bad. The good quali

ties we acquire-moderation. industry.
are sound investments. Our evil in
stitutions and habits are bad invest
menst, involving us in losses. Ve be
come debtors to them, and they are
exacting, creditors forcirg payment
in full in money or labor and some
times in blood, agony, tears. humilia
tion or shame.

Commissioner Watson states that.
in his opinion, South Carolina's cot
ton crop for this year wvill reach I,
10o,000 bales and that the cron K1
be the largest in the history of the
state. In a letter Mr. Watson says:
The conditions of the crop of No
vember I, 1903., was about 69 per
cent., while the condition of the crop
of November 1, 1904, making full al
lowance for the practically total loss
of a top crop, might safely be placed
at about 79 per cent. Thei is no
way of getting the exact figures as to
the yield on November I. In this
connection it is noteworthy that up
to October 18. last year, only 37.6
per cent. of the South Carolina crop
had been ginned and on November 14
only 69.4 per cent. of the crop had
been ginned. This year, however, up
to October 18, 629.837 bales had been
ginned. These figures represent the
splendid harvest season with which
the state was favored this year, ena
bling practically all of the crop to be
gathered early and in prime condi
tio-1 for ginning. The drought pre
vented the usua! top crop. and at the
same time enabled a good deal of
what has heretofore been a portion
of the top crop to become a portion
of the regular crop. There is som-e
cotton still in the fields, which, if thec
prices keep up for the next fortnight.
will be harvested. All things consid
ered, it is extremely likely that the
yield of the 1904 crop inl this state
will be at least 25 per cent. greater
than that -of last year. In other
words it looks very much, at this
time as if the 1904 crop may reach
1,100,000 bales and be the largest crop
in the history of the state.
Throughout the south this year the
average yield per acre has been nine
points higher than the average yield
per acre during the decennial period
between 1894 and 1903. It is very
likely that the South Carolina ave
rage yield is Io-7 points better than
the comparison for the ent.ire south
wit the arage. This would give
us about 188 pounds of lint per acre
as against 170 pounds the lowest re
turn per acre since 1899, reported in
From a careful survey of the entire
situation, however, I think that -you
will fnd the figures given you here
with approximately correct when the
returns are all in. It is noteworthy
in .his connection that Henry Neill,
the London cotton man, whose opin
ion is regarded very highly. on the
24th of October placed this year's
crop for the south at 12,000,000 mm
Shot at Judge.
San Francisco, Cal., November 29.
-Rev.Isaac Se.y, of Australia, plain
tiff in a damage suit, shot at Superior
Judge Hebbard yesterday while the
latter was on the bench. The bullet
came within an inch of the judge's
head and lodged in the back of the
chair. Selby was at once removed
to the city prison and charged with
a,n attempt to commit murder.
Selby recently was sued for di
vorce. He conducted his own de
fense, but was unsuccessful, a decree
against him being granted.
Judge Hebbard, who issued the de
cree, was trying a case yesterday
when Selby arose from a seat in the
court room and fired at the judge,
who rushed from the bench and
grappled with his assailant, prevent
ing him from firing another shot. For
a time great excitment prevailed.
When quiet was restored it was learn
ed that the judge had not been in

cause that seems the only way for a
man to get justice in this country. My
only regret is that I seem to have
bungled matters considerably. My
intention was to kill him. but I was
a trifle nervous."
