Our Cotton on Hand.
Our efforts in these columns has'been
chiefly directed towards checking, if
possible, the increase of acreage by
silly farmers in cotton; we have not
thought it necessary to give any ad
vice here to the farmers now holding
thoir cotton. These are men of busi
ness, and are'usually men with suffi
cient grit, pluck and financial backing
to carry their points and know what
thoy are about. The cotton holders
that now have this matter in hand are
about as good financiers, and have
abont as much collateral and backing
behind them as the bear element have.
Cotton holders know now that about
all the scary holders have been shaken
out, and that the cotton bear Ls now up
against the real stuff. Spot holders
are well aware of the fact that the
spinner has got to have about all the
cotton before the next crop comes in,
and it matters not whether the next
crop will be a small or a large crop. ?
The thing is this, the mills must run or
tho walking mobs that are parading
the streets of the foreign manufactur
ing cities calling for work or bread will
wage riot. Stopping the mills under
such conditions would be equivalent to
striking a match in a powder house.

The Signs of ^the Times.
If we are not badly deceived in the
signs of the times, farmers that do not
heed the warnings of the Farmers'
Union and plant more food crops now,
they will be running around next Fall
wanting everybody's advice about how
to buy $20.00 a ton peavine hay and
$1.00 a bushel corn with 6 cents cotton!
Our big supply men, and mule men,
too, had better butt in this thing at
once along with the Farmers' Union in
their efforts to induce farmers to plant
more food crops and less cotton, or the
game next winter will be nip and tuck
between these men and the buzzards as
to who will get the most revenue out
of this mule mortgage business.
A good deal is being said recently
about live stock associations in each of
the counties of the State, which will be
a good thing if our farmers will take
to them, and instead of bragging about
selling peavine hay and other food
crops, they will raise and feed more
stock and take care of the manure, they
need not be howling any longer about
the guano trust!
Our Farmers' Unions should take to
this live stock idea like young ducks
take to water; it is the natural thing to
do and right along the straight road to
the permanent building up of the up-to
date progressive idea of the independ
ent farmer of the South.
All our Farmers' Unions should be
each in itself a good live stock associa
tion, and talk more about raising more
and better stock and talk less about
raising more cotton.

resignation to take effect at once. The
reason of the resignation is the doctor's

was given a vacation that his health
would be restored soon, but these hopes
have not been realized, and helms felt
it necessary to send in his resigna*

of this Church for about thirty years
and his congregation arc strongly at
tached to him. The whole community
join with them in the regret that their
pastor finds it necessary to lay down
his work and join in the hope that lie
may be restored to health. Dr. McClin

TROT OR GALLOP?
A Problem For People Willi Kven
Very Shni'it lOyen.
Hero Is a problem for people with
sharp eyes: As wo all know, a horse
when walking or trotting advances
only one leg of each pair at a time, but
when galloping lifts both forefeet to
gether and then both hind feet. Now,
the question Is how other animals man
age this matter. The birds, of course,
flap both wings together, but which
birds run and which hop? Wo human
beings "trot" when we walk and "gal
lop" when we swim?that is, if we are
using the plain breast stroke. Thodog,
however, "trots" for both. Now, do
the amphibious animals?tho seals, ot
ters and tho rest- swim like men or i
like other four footed creatures?
Then there are tho (Isll. One would
rather expect that, as they move their
tails from side to side, they would flap
alternately with the tins, which are
their hands and feet. Who call tell
whether they do or not, and whether
all fish at all times follow one rule?
By the way, how does a frog use Its
"hands';" The great anatomist, K. Hay
Lankoster, has pointed out that, whllo
tho "thousand legs," such as our com
mon galley worm, advance two fee, of
a pair together, the ccntlpcds, which
are much like them, do exactly the op
posite, and the swimming worms also
alternate the stroko of each pair of

Dr. Oliver Tonks in tho Outlook Mag
azine Bhows tbo difficulties of distin
guishing real from spurious antiquities.
Hero Is one of bis anecdotes:
At times the forger Is content to take
ancient fragments of ancient vases or
statuettes rnd complete them with clay
or plaster of parts. These new "old"
wares he then paints up and passes to
tho unsuspecting, and sometimes sus
pecting, purchaser as real antiques.
The story is told of a forger in Athens
that he protested that when he bad fin
ished "improving" an antique bo him
self could not always tell where the
genuine part ceased and the false be
gan. Under such circumstances it
may not be woudered that at times
even experts are tricked.
Tho following Incident shows how
forgeries turn up in very unexpected
places: Ono hot. day a party of US were
toiling up a steep ascent in tho island
of Melos when wo saw above us a j
number of (J reeks seated on a parapet
of ruins. We bad been cruising long
enough among the ?Sgeau islands to

Qreeks one of our number, n tireless
Bcotchwomau, scrambled ahead of us
to the top, where we could soon seo
her, wind blown and outlined against
the blue sky, bargaining for a vase.
When we reached the top after a more
leisurely climb she put her purchase in
my hands and asked mo what I thought
of It. My hands were moist with per
spiration from the exertion of tho climb,
Olid for answer to her question I held
them out to her nil blackened from
grasping the vase. Tho sweat had at
tacked tin- modern paint with which it
was covered, and by thus coining off
cn my hands the color had betrayed Its
falsiiy. Tho whole vase had been
patched up from six or seven pieces
and then painted over to conceal tho
