Pretty Sewing Basket
Work baskets of figured cretonne or"
silk may be made, In eeveral sizes, of
two circular pieces of the material.
For the foundation of the basket a
light, square cardboard box Is used,
split at the corners, so that It can be
flattened out. A pocket, gathered on
one edge, over an elastic band, and an
oblong pin cushion, are sewed to one
of the circular pieces. The two pieces
are then pasted together with the flat
tened box between them. Eyelet holes
In the spaces between the sides of
the cardboard foundation carry a small
cord that holds the basket in shape,
as shown in the picture.
MICHIGAN'S NEW SENATOR.
Gov. Groesbeck of Michigan has
made a popular choice in nominat
ing James Couzons, Detroit's non
partisan Mayor, to succeed to the
Senate vacancy occasioned by Tru
man H. Newberry's resignation.
Mr. Couzens is one of the multi
millionaires with whom Henry Ford's
fabulous success has sprinkled De
troit, but he is also a salient per
sonality in his own right. A man
who on a modest wage could accumu
late $1000 before 30 and could risk
it all on the idea of an obscure me
chanic, as Couzens did when he
plunged on Henry Ford, has those
qualities of thrift and daring which
combined lead on to fortune irre
sistibly. With or without Ford,
Couzens was destined to get out of
Another interesting and promis
ing fact of this man's character was
revealed when he quit the Ford or
ganization and sold out his interest
in that super-Midas adventura be
cause of his differences with the deo
ex machina. And then there is his
record as Mayor of Detroit. The
high light in this episode of his ca
reer was the purchase by the city
of the street railway company and
at more than one-third less than the
first price. Yet the greatest service
of Couzens' mayorality, we imagine,
is the spirit of progress and confi
dence with which Detroit is now ani
mated. The city has entered upon a
superlative program of improvement
which contemplates an expenditure
of $300,000,000 and, in the Couzens'
philosophy, when that is done more
will follow. Post-Dispatch.
A ROAD RECORD.
The State Highway Department
made a construction record during
the week ending November 4, when
20 miles of graded earth road was
completed and more than eight miles
of hard roadway. The figures are
not impressive, perhaps, but, like
Rome, roads are not built in a day.
They take time.
Information with a greater uppeal
to the imagination is given In the
statement that work is now in pro
gress on 24C road projects on which
a force 'of 7000 men is employed.
Such a report enables us to visual
izo the progress of this great enter
prise. ,Wo hnvo evidence at hand, too,
of the valuo to bo derived from the
big investment wo are making. Illi
nois, which authorized a road bond
issue several years before Missouri
and plunged Into construction with
extraordinary energy, now has cross
stuto hard-surfaced roads that are
attracting a profitable tourist truffle
besides accelerating business ot nl
pnost every character. The citizens
of our 'neighboring State are all road
believers now. The roads have con

The delta sections, where more
cotton is grown per acre than in
any place in the world, has been
flooded with these letters during the
past six months. They started com
ing through the mails last winter.
Negroes who have grown up'on plan
tations have been induced to pack
up ann leave after this year's cotton
crop was picked.
Again come honest inducements
from landowners in Pemiscot and
Dunklin counties, Missouri. In
those counties great cotton crops
were made last summer. It is re
ported that in those two counties
approximately $10,000,000 'has been
left from sale of cotton this fall. The
soil is deep and rich. With suitable
weather, conditions next summer a
wonderful change will be seen In
that territory, according to reports;
Cotton will be planted next' summer
as far north as Oran, Mo., a town in
the foothills of the Ozarks. This Is
about 20 miles this side of Cape Gir
ardeau, Mo. It is the farthest north
cotton has been grown, but farmers
In that territory say they can make
It and next year will bring about the
Negroes from Mississippi' are go
ing into that newly promised land.
They are the class of negroes who
believe in growing cotton, those
who know nothing else, and have no
Inclination: to try out any of the so
called "northern generosity."
For more than three weeks the
Frisco railroad has been carrying
carloads of negroes away from East
Mississippi and others from the del
ta sections. Most all of them are
moving' their families. Some have
already contracted for cotton grow
ing on shares; others are going in to
make a crop on their own hook. All
these negroes are said to be reliable
and experienced cotton growing peo
ple. On the other hand, the Illinois
Central has been for more than a
month hauling negroes out of the
delta territory and from points in
mid-Mississippi to Chicago 'and De
troit. Under a ruling agreed to by rail
roads two years ago no tickets are
sent prepaid. Therefore no passen
ger man is in a position to tell If
any direct communication exists be

So far as known there have been
no labor agents sent into the south
to recruit these negroes. They seeni
to be acting on their own behalf.
However, two carloads went out last
night over the Illinois Central for
Chicago and Detroit. Tho travel
has been at that averago for the
pust two months, heavier Saturday
and Sunday nights than any other
days of the week.
The negroes come to Memphis
