terday I met the committee in Vernon IS
who made their report, which shows
l5at one thousandt and forty-seven ea
families are :and will he without food A
in a very short time. Of this number of
there are seven hundred and seventeen o
who are absolutely without anything
to live o on, only as they get it by beg
ging of the few who have a little corn t
and tieat. Striking the average at live I
to the family, you will readily see that ti
thirty-ive hundred men, women and ti
children in tbis parish are without food le
for themselves. The calculatio n made
by this committee shows that the gov
ernment aid which they will receive
will not exceed twelve bushels of corn p
per family. These people have noth. c
ing to live on or to feed their horses or p
hogs with. Huudreds of hogs are dying q
of starvation ;ll over the parish. 1'
Horses are getting so thin in flesh they p
are unable to work. I am informed l.
that some of the horses gave out on the
road to Vernon yesterday. They were st
unable to carry their riders. The real

R POTECTION FOR COTTON.
It seems very strange to hear of
Sprotection being asked for Ameri
ician cotton. If: such a thing as a
duty on cotton to protect it from
foreign competition had been even
, mentioned ten years ago it would
k h1ve been laughed at as ridiculonsly
sl impossible. Did- not the United
SStates lead the woil in this product,
raising more than all other countries
t- eomhbined? Did it not grow cotton
- of the finest variety,- and obtain a
e0 greater yield per acsore than any other
Slaud? InII every Exposition in which
cotton was displayed lhad not the
American product carriet off all the
,t honors? And, finally, when the
oo Indian government began the culti
vation of cotton on a grand scale,
Sl.during our civil war, had it not
in grown it from the American seed;
ty and had not the experiments then
ig tnade indicated that no country was
Sas well adapted for cotton as the
United States, fr the American
' cotton deteriorated in a few years in
India, the fibre becoming shorter,
coarser and less valuable?
- Again, when Russia inaugurated
r- the cotton industry in its transcas
le plant territory it was to America it
he camune for the seed, the methods of
at caltivation. msabhinery, etc.; and
or both the Indian and the Russian
cotton industries are founded on
o' American seed and on American
le methods in cul'ivating the South's
to great staple.
be Daring all this time there were
frequently complailnts about the low
price of cotton, but no talk of pro
ly tection; indeed, protection" would
a have been a great absurdity. We
.be imported nio cot ton, but spplid a
- large part of the world with the
Istsaple used in the mnanufac:ture of
ix I cotton goods.
les Some ten years ago, however, we
ide actually began importing a little
es. cotton from Egypt, andthose im
LCh piorations have since increased so
arapiily as to cause some alarm
an among American growers as hlkely
9 to depiive them of the market for
ai the best quality of their product
ps long staple cotton.
S ThIe Egyptian cotton has a long,
" r strong, aihty fibre, from I 1-8 to 1
hm5-8 inch in length, specially adapted
the for thread, fine yarns, fine under
in I wear and hosIery, suab as ,Balbirig.

gi.es to fabrs a soft -fiish, tornem
what like silk goods; and it' a
claimedthat dyed aand plriated goods ha
made of Egyptian cotton retain Khiu
their color and lustre lorfge' than
fabrics -made of American nplanl eel
eqttan. The Egyptian t rd ct is by
not as fine as sea island cotton, nor tim
does it bring as hifPh a price; it is .:
muiot like the k,ng statple cot ton pro- ! 1
duced in the rich allu'iai lands along I,v
the Mississiippi; with which Ii comes ia~
largely into competition. The iri- iae
portatiotns have increascd rapidly of tir<

to 108,820 American bales. it
This oettou competes chiefly with th:
the product of the rich alluvial
lands along the Mississippi, where cre
t the soil is of the same characttr as an
l that of the Nile Valley. This Pr- 00
leans cotton haq always commanded o'
a good price because the staple is .t
longer and better than the uplend to
product; and it has recently been
crowded out of the tield and the qt
r price mateiially reduced in conse,- 1
g quence of these foreign imports. tie
. 'There were some mutterings on this
Y point a few years ago, ,nt the trouble r':
i has grown so steadily worse that at ot
e last the cotton planters of the Mis-I
stsqippi Valley have decided to take
action and to appeal to Congress for pi
relief. di
b The Vicksburg Cotton Exchange, yi
at a meeting held Tuesday, called el
1- upon Geni. Catchings, who repre
.r sents the Mississippi district in
which most of the long staple cotton tl
is produced, to insist uipon tax or ,
is duty on Egyptian cotton. This is h
s demanded on the ground that the
t Egyptian product is grown by pa- i
. per or coolie labor, and is sold in g
d the United States at prices which
1- render American competition im
s possible. The Yazoo City Cotton lt
d Exchange has adopted resolutions to fi
in the same effect, asking Congress to it
n impose a duty of three cents per t
a1 pound on Egyptian cotton in order
to protect the Interests of the pro- s
ce ducers of long staple cotton; and has t
is appointed a representative to visit r
a- Washington and lay this demand
I before the ways and means commit
ill tee of the Honue.
of There is probably nothing more
.r extraordinary in our tariff history
thin that the cotton planters, who I
ti- have been heretofore the most stal- t
t- wart opponents of protection in any t
I shape or form, should now be asking I
"- it on a product in which we have
er heretofore claimed to lead the world.
SI'hat their claim is a8 just one,
"x viewed from the standpoint of pro
Steetion, cannot be disputed. We
can grow in this country long staple
of cotton like the Egyptian product,
s;, but not at the prices at which it can
ud he produced by the fellaheen of the
in Nile Valley, who work for less than
's our slaves received during the days
of slavery, and who receive barely
enough of food to keep them alive.
It has been suggested that if the
cotton grolrs of the South bad ap
of ealed to Congress when the Mc
ri- Kinley tariff was being framed they
would have received the protection
a they now ask for; hbut at that time
io the shoe was not pinchbing as it is to
Sday. The competition of the
Egyptian cotton has steadily grown
Sso much , orse as to seriously affect
ed the river plantations, hence the pres
(t, ent protest ot the Vicksburg and
Yazoo City Cotton- Exchanges.
on 'The cotton planters of all the Mis
Ssissippi riverdistricts will, we are
er satisfied, heartily join them in the
hdemand for protection from Egyp
tbe ian cotton. The ordinary utplaind
e cotton of the South, which consti
Stutes the bulk of its product, is not
il affected by this ",pauper cotton" of
the Orient.-Times-DemIncrat.
n The following is a brief record of
as famines of which mention is made in
the history: "In Britain in 272 the peo
ai ple were forced to et the bark of
in trees. Again, in 310, 40,000 died
through starvation in the same coun
ted try. In Italy in 450 parents ate
tas- their children. In England in 1315
it the-people devoured the flesh of hor
of sea, dogs, cats and vermin. At
ian Cape V.erde in 1775, 16,000 people
onstarved to death. India has had
can many great famines. In 1873-78,
ths 800,000 perished; in 1869-61 many
thousands more; in Bengal and
ere Orian in 1865-66 the deaths from
starvation aggregated 1.000.000; in
ald Rajpostana, etc., in 1868-69 the
We deaths were 1,500,000, and in 1877
d a about 500,000 perished in Bombay,
the Madras, Mysore, etc. In the same
o0 year the famine in northern China
we was so great that 9,500,000 are said
tde to have perished."

The best way to prevent sore should

oflar that fits tight. There is such a
in thing as getting a collar so tight tha
!o- it will chgke the horse, but a large
amount ofsore shoulders is caused by
of having the collar toolarge. I keep in
ed the barn a smootlh, rountd IiC(e of hard

must take the draft of the collar off
pie from the sore before you can heal it up.
tad One of the best renmedies I have ever
f8, found for a sweeney or big swelling is
hot water. As soon as yot find a large
swelling, lameness or bruise, take very
ad hot water and wash it thoroughly,
om then wipe ilry and rub for all you are
in worth for not less than fifteen min
utes. I)on't forget that hot water and
the lots of elbow grease well applied in
177 time will cure the worst case of
