The chief obj c'j of thc convention
will be to outline a plan of campaign
and to ti?eot sn organ:zulon for push
"lug the campaign vigorously. Tue or
ganization may or niiy not movido a
permanent head to dire ob tho cam
palgu, all that being a matter of de
tail for the loaners to decide upon.
Such a call, it ls believed, would
or?ate a sensation in the state and
give notice to the enemies of the els
penaary that they wero going up
against a muon stiller proposition
than they had conten.plated.

plate the suggestion of any mau for

I theatres almost every day or night in

moments at card parties and dislike
to discharge any household ? duties
whatever, wo fear there ls, especially
in the cities, a class growing up that
is destined to reduce the high stand

A woman may so live as to become tnt
cynosure of all eyes ; she may pJeasi

her accempllshtuomsi in music, poetr,.

knowledge ls or more value in lift
than all other knowledge, for without
it their lives would be miserable f-tll

one if tho wealthiest men in Hie

these girls lias failed to meet all tho

Another thing quite as Impir

reasonable or exacting with her ser

to dj and bow to do it. Tue sumo is

the senator, "and tho prluolpal fl^ht

for court supervision of rates. This

the power of li J ruction to prevent tho

give thc railroad oom ntsslpn power to
put rates into tn\ot after 30 days' no

Tho senator did not ciro to dlpcuss

TO SPOT COTTON HOLDERS.
Thoy Aro Atlrlsoil to Holli lor Fifteen
Mr. Ilarvlo Jordan, President of
thc Southern Cotton Association, is
confident that cotton will go up a
litt ld later, and in consequence ho ad
vises all spot holders of oottou to hold
on. riere ls what he says: About tho
middle of last N. vember the Southern
Cotton Association advised all spot
holders to demand fifteen conto pei
pound, basis middling, f ir tha batanee
of tho unsold portion of tho prosont
crop and pledges were askod for nine
ty days. Tho Mammouth Cotton Con
vention held at New Orleans, L?.,
January 11th-13th, 11)00 passed a
r*aolutton unanimously endorsing the
holding movement for fifteen cmts,
and advocated tho continued holding
of tlie unsold portion of tho oiop for
that prloe independent of the 00 day
pledging. The Executlvo Committee
of the Association subsequently en
dorsed tho action of thc Convention
and all spot holders wero earnestly
asked to stand ii rm until a maximum
prioj of fifteen cents w*s offered. Re
member ono year ago c ?Hon sold at
sevonoontspcr pound In February and
advanced to ovor ten coots early in
July in tho face of a 11,000 000 halo
crop. This year the orop ls 3.r>00,000
bales less. Consumption ls far greater
this year than last, and prions of all
lines of cotton goods abnormally high.
If tho email b?lenos of tho cotton new
held bc sold for flftoon cents, the
wholo crop will not average over UJ
cents per pound. Receipts will BOO,-.
drop (IV hoavlly and a stronger mar
kot will be had. Do not rush your
