HEAD OF GREAl FIRM
DOUBLES HIS WORK
Garlick Among New Yorkers Doing
WAS "ALL RUN DOWN"
Widely Known Business Man Tells
Story that Will Encourage
In the lint of the men of New York
who have done big things ie the name
of Mcrris Garlick. This man is secre
tary of the Down Town Taxpayers'
Association of Brooklyn, representing
$10,000,000 in realty holdings alone
in the heart of the great business dis
trict. He was largely responsible for
Brooklyn's nomd Flatbush extension,
the great traffic artery from the new
Manhattan bridge. He is head of M.
G'arlick & Co., of 181 Gold sircet.
Prominent in the real uplift work
of the world's greatest city, he holds
the deep respect of thousands with
whom he coms in contact n business,
political, church and fraternal affairs.
Since boyhood, and for 45 years, he
has labored. He is now 57 years old.
It is only natural that, with all his
activities, the strain should begin to
"Maybe I have overworked," said
Mr. Garlick, "but, at any rate, I be
gan to sL ffer from broken 'rest, loss
of appetite ,failure to assimilate the
nourishment I needed, and nervous
ness," he explained. "It is what the
average man calls 'all run down,' and
there are a lot of us in every. city.
I felt as if I needed something to build
me up-something that would bring
back the strength I was losing; some
thing that would help take away the
wvorries, give me a real ap~petite, tond
up my stomach and whole system and
qiuiet my nerves. Through friends I
heard of a new medicine, Tanlac, ,and
dcided that if it could hellp others, it
(ought to help me, too, so I tried Tan
lac. And now," he continued-for work
is his big thought in life-I can do
twie as much work as I could before.
My nerves are quiet. I rest well. I en
joy meals because my stomach di
gests my food. I am stronger and feel
When men like Morris Garlick en
dorse a medicine, there can be no fur
ther proof asked. He felt it was his
duty to tell of Tanlac to help others.
No other medicine ever has won such
support. Because Tanlac is the re
constructive, system purifier and
stomach tonic, supreme for weak, ail
ing men and women who need more
~ntrength, better fligestion and re
vitalization of the nervous system, it
receives endlorsement like this.'
.Tanlac, the Master Medicine, is sold

Grave Crisis in Cotton Production In
dicated-Average Crop of Last Two
Years 2,900,000 Short-World Al
most Bare of Cotton-Cotton Farm
ers Should also Raise Food Crop.
The average cotton crop of the five
years from 1911 to 1915, as report
ed by the United States department
of agriculture was 14,175,872 bales
as compared with 11,449,930 bales ir
1916 and 10,949,000 bales in 1917
The average crop of the last tw<
years is, therefore, 2,flfl,000 bales
sh'ort of the average for the preced.
ing five years. Last year's yield was
3,200,000 bales short of the averag<
for the five years from 1911 to 1915
These figures indicate an acut<
crisis in cotton production. Notwith,
standing the wvar, the consumption ol
cotton must go on at an accelerating
rate. To some extent it fs temporarib~
halted in some countries, but thosi
countries are diraining to the lasi
ounce their supply of cotton goods. Ir
this country and in Great Britair
and France and Italy, while the con
sump~tion of cotton may be dlecrease<
for dlomestic purposes, an enormous
amount of cotton is being used foi
explosives. The world is, therefore
becoming as bare of cotton and1 cottor
goods as it is of foodstuffs. The pro

Some of the suggestions put out by
New York so-called experts as a max
imum price for cotton are absolute
ly absurd. They might have been
justified as a maximum price on cot
ton before the war, for cotton never
has sold at anything like its intrin
sic value, nor have cotton growers
and cotton laborers ever secured, at
least in the last 30 or 40 years, one
half as much for cotton as a better
economic system for this section
would have amply justified and de
manded. Cotton growers and cotton
laborers, having a monopoly of the
most important single crop in the
world, have been held down to a bare
.existence, often selling their cotton
at less than the actual cost of produc
tion, even cunting, as the small farm
ers and tenants have had to do, the
labor of their wives and children as
nothing on the balance sheet.
The whole policy of the cotton
buying interests of the world has
been to crush out the prosperity of
the cotton grower, perchance not in
tentionally, but actually so by rea
" son of the conditions which prevail
ed after the war and which estab
lished precedents in the trade that
the poverty of the cotton-growing
While ,western farmers have
grown rich on grain production
southern farmers, whose staplee
crop is just as important to the
world as grain, have, by reason of
the economic conditions over which
they have no control, been kept to a
large extent in poverty. The high
est prices of the last two years have
been bringing a few rays of sunlight
into the homes of cotton growers and
even of cotton . farm laborers, but
much yet remains to be done before
there can be the same general pros
perity among the cotton growers of
the south as exists among the grain
growers of Kansas and Nebraska and
other western states.
The fault has been with the sys
tem rather than with the growers or
with the soil of the south.
It should be the aim of all business
interest- in the south to encourage
cotton growers to raise abundant
foodstuffs. Never again should this
section have to depend upon the west
for corn and meat. Indeed, it looks
as though all of the increasedl corn
produ~ction of the United States must
come from the south, since the wvest
has apparently, for the time being at
least, very nearly reached its limit in
But while increasing to the utmost
extent the production of foodstuffs in
the south for the needs of this sec
tion and for shipment elsewhere,
there must be adlequate production of
cotton. Cotton is not only essential for
its lhmit andi for use in the manufac
ture of explosives, but is essential for
the enormous food value in cotton
seedi oil andI the feed value~ in cotton..
seed cake and hulls. In raising cotton
'the south is thus dlirectly' raising an
invaluable foodstuff and feedstuff.
Tfhe motives of any man who seeks
to decry the cott on-growvinrg i nterests
or to put on cotton a maximum price
which wvould not yield a large profit
to the grower-not simply a- fair pro
fit.-may be seriously questioned, for
evidently he is seeking the advant
of other interests rather than the
adlvantage of the cotton growver, who
must have primary consideration.
Moreovei, the cost of cotton grow
ing has so greatly increasedl that even
the suggestion which has been made
of.18.cents a pound as a maximjum
price is absurd to any intelligent man.
RECoRD O1" ACHIEVEMENT'
What John L,. McLaurin Has Accomi
plished in Constructive Legislation
Editor Yorkville Enquirer.
When John L. McIaurin entered
the statp senate in 1913--he came
wvith a definite purpose to inaiugurate
a new prograname 'of induntrial pro
gress by using the sov->r'ig'ity of the
state to stabilize the market value of
the south's many crops.
The programme was:
1st. Warehousing andI financing
2nd. Direct sales of cotton from the
warehouses to the mills.
3rd. State gradling.
4th. State insurance.
5lth. A Farmers' Bank to !handlle the
Those ideac at first ,found little fia
vor in. an ultra cons irvat've South
Carolima senate, but finally under the
persuamive power andi fire of enthu
siasm of the author and under the
stress of 6 cents cotton caused by the

was enacted into law at the extra

priation. McLaurin was chosen com
missioner an-i given his "baby" to
rear to manhood. The home was un.
sheltered, the "wolves" numerous,
fierce and hungry, but he loved this
"offspring", of his mind and fought
Ifor it with a valor that has con
manded the admiration of every gen
erous spirit which has not been ob
secured by politician partisan zeal.
He got farmers to build warehouses
on their farms, he reduced insurance
on rural warehouses from 3 1-2 to
1.58; he secured an abundance of
money to finance cotton at 6 per cent
at a time when none was available
even at 8 per cent, he enlisted the l
sympathy and co-operation of Mr. W.
F. G. Harding, chairman of the Feed
eral Reserve Board in Washington
and he and I had developed a plan
and secured the consent of Mr. Ilard
ing to establish a bank to serve as
distributing agent for the money
available to finance cotton so that the
farmers could get it at 4 per cent in
stead of G per cent as provided by
existing distribution agencies. The
thought nad taken root and was
growing. The government in Wash
ington was sounding a harmonious
note. The State warehcuse office and
the governor's office seemed in har
mony and everything seemed fair and
promising to set up in South Carolina
a light to guide southern agriculture
out of the gloom of its years of de
pression. Then came the May con
vcnti,n of 1916 which violated the
rules of the party and broke the law
of the state in denying the ware
house commissioner the right to a
place in the state campaign, which
right had been demanded by a reso
presiuent of the state warehouse
association, and unanimously adopted,
as expressing the universal dcaire to
have the author of the law explain
to the people its benericient purpose
and enlist their cooperation to like
end that it might become all that
its friends hoped for. McLaurin felt
that he lost the support of the ad
ministration then in office and in my
opinion made the mistake of carrying;
the fight into the campaign for the
election of the faction which support
ed our resolution. It is my convic
tion that our programme is bigger
than either faction and if carie d be

Additional evidlence of the fact that
McLaurin's thought has taken root
and is growving may be found in the
recent passage by almost unanimous
consent of my hill to inisure state
warehouse cotton by the state. T1his
law not only settles the question of
insurance for cotton, not only builds
a vwall betwveen the cotton "baby" and
the "wvolves" but it sets up a light to
guide the thoughts of statement to the
ultimate solution of all insurance
prob~lems and to lift the weight which
piresses so heavily upon the commer
cial life of our people. Men are
thinking everywhere on this and it is
well wvorth your attention.
How government can b~e used to
coaserve the resources of a people has
ever been the task of the statesman.
