They Won't Stick.
A member of another Union
while talking to a member of our t
Union a few days neoi', said that he -
was afraid that. the farmers wouln't
stick after they had met and put v
a price on their cotton.

Toxarkana, last September and put
the price of 'eleven cents on their
cotton and that standing shoulder n

that price? Poor fellow, we don't -
know what impression he wanted -
to make on our man, but the kind a
that he did make was that a mem- t

Crop Liars and Cotton report Leaks.
.All along we have been doubting
that it was true that quite a nunm,
b 'r of our cotton jlanters had sold
their crops of cotton before they
had planlted it, and had since sell
ing out been engaging themselves
to aid the gang of crop liars. But
after some close Obse'vation aind
investigations by others we are
forced to admit that there is more
or our cotton planters engaged in
this very rotten and demoralizing
work than we had any idea of.
-This is a statement coming from
one of the best conservative men
in one of the best cotton counties
in South ('arolina, Last week we
met a company of three special cot
ton crop reporters g-ing all about
Our county making up a special cot
ton crop report. One of these men
was a half breed cotton buyer and
cotton planter, or~e was a lawyer
*that is often times engaged to work
on the shady side of lawsuits. and
the other was a real jolly drummer
who was having a good time but
had never been in cotton in any
way before, This special agent
crowd reported ibis county's crop
.of cotton at 871 arnd two weeks
*oarber, when every farmer in the
county knows the orop to be two
weekfs later and that the large sappy
growth of stalk is at the expense of
the crop of fruit.

LEGEND OF THE GAR IruI.
3 Contradictory Verslone of the Foune
dation of the Order.
I knew, as every schoolboy known,
the legend that a certain i'Countess ol
Salisbury dropped her garter at a ball
and that the kIng, picking it up aii(
the smiles of courtiers, handed itto hei
with the happy and now immortal
phrase, "HRon soit qui mal y pense.'
But this legend, I recalled, bad had t(
go the way of the story of King Al
fred and the cakes, the story of Wil
Hlam 'ell and the apple apd many anu
other pretty fairy tale of history. A
last I went to Sir Nicholas Harris Nico
las' "History of the Orders of Knight
hood," where I found a delightful mast
of contradictory authority produced.
The tale of the onalign and unie ol
the order were first told by Polydorc
Vergil (1410-1555), who wrote la th(
time of Henry VII. and Henry Vill
and who said that the lady wias "th
queen or the king's mistress." Segar
whose work, "Honor, Military And
Civil," appeared in 1602, 250 years ift
er the order was founded, 'was the filrs
to say that it was the Countess of Sal
isbry. Other writers say that it wai
the Countess of Kent. John Anstif
(1669-1744), 'garter king of arms, wh<
published several heraldic works, ridi
cules the whole story. le confeesei
that an author of Henry VI.'s time
who wrote in Latin and whose work Ii
now entirely lost, upheld it.
Raphael Holinshed, a chronicler, wh<
died in 1580, tells the story in detal
and says the lady was the queen, whicl
surely rather spolls the significance o
the legend. Sir' Harris Nicolas him
self 'thiuka the story is not Improbable
although he urges the fact that Jear
Froissart, who is the best contempo
rary authority on the reign of E0dwari
III., while he has much to say about
the order in his hundredth chapter
does not refer to It, andi Nicholas ad
mits that this tells very much againsa
the supposed origin of the story, bul
Frolesart may have thought the mattei
too trivial to relate. By the way, I fee
very much aggrieved that 0. C. Macau
lay in the abridged volume of Froissar
that he published through the Macmnli
lans shoild have ruthlessly cut thi
It is not. I may add, claimed that th
Incident caused the fouuldation of thi
Order of the Garter, .but only that I
gave Edward. III. the idea for naminj
the order which he had resolved t,
- founm in any ease. In the absence o
any other solutom than that whc
rests on these shadowy foundations
think we may still go on accepting th
; pretty legond, but I repent my expret
- sion of dissatisfaction with the popuhi
