DEATH OF JERRY SIMPSON
End of a Notable Career of Varied
Activity-Had Been Ill for One
Wichita, Kansas, October 23.
Jerry Simpson died at 6:05 o'clock this
morning. Mr. Simpson was conscious
-up to five minutes before death. The
- end came without a struggle.
Mr. Simpson was born in New
Brunswick, on March 31, 1842. At
14 -he began life as a sailor, and dur
ing 23 years he followed that pur
'suit, commanding many large vessels
- on -the great lakes. In the Civil war
he served in the Twelfth Illinois in
fantry. He came to Kansas in 1878.
Originally he was a republican but
later became a Greenbacker and Pop
ulist. He was a member of congress
from 1891 to 1893 and from 1897 to
1899, being nominated the last time
by both democrats and populists. Af
ter he left congress he moved to Ros
well, N. H., where he engaged up co
the time of his death in stock farm
ing. He returned to Kansas a month
ago and entered a hospital for treat
His condition became hopeless ten
days ago and since then the patient
was kept alive principally by sheer
force of will. His wife and son were
at his bedside at the time of his death.
Death was caused by aneurism of
the aorta. Mr. Simpson had been in
ill health for nearly a year. Six
montihs ago he consulted a specialist
at Chicago, who pronounced his case
hopeless. Burial will take place at
Wichita. The Masonic order will
have charge of the funeral.

A Note Of Warning.
Atlanta, Ga., Oct. 25, I905.-Farm
ers and merchants of the south are
warned against cotton buyers who are
now busy at many interior points try
ing to induce spot holders to sell their
cotton at marke[ prices and agreeing
to pay any additional advance that
may accrue within the next 6o or go
days. If you deliver up your cotton
on that basis and the buyers get
enough of the staple in their hands to
fill their orders, there is but little
chance for the market to advance.
The way to force an advance quickly
is to refuse to part with the cotton
tntil satisfactory prices are offered.
No middling cotton should be sold at
interior points for less tian eleven
cents per pound. The crop is short
and all who hold will be rewarded as
they should ibe.
Again, don't lend your cotton to lo
cal mills on the promise of settlement
at any time within the next few
months. With the staple in the hands
of the spinners prices can never ad
Again, notify warehousemen to
whom you ship your cotton for stor
age that under no circumstances must
your cotton be loaned or sold to ex
porters or buyers on any sort of trade
r contract until you are-ready to sell
it. All kinds of tricks'and devices are
being resorced to now by buyers and
spinners to indtTce farmers to part
with their cotton. Every man who is
led into any of those trades is unwit
tingly playing into the hands of the
buyers-and against his own interest
and that of his neighbors.
Hold your cotton like grim death.
