LAURENS, S. C, NOVEMBER 6, 1907.
The financial shake-up in New York
has depressed the price of cotton, but
the financial situation is sure to be bet
ter. Meantime there is, in our opinion,
a concerted determination on the part
of the buyers of cotton that they will
not pay higher prices than those now
prevailing if they can help it. Jour
nals of the New England manufactur
ers openly say that the price is now too
high; that eight cents would be a fair
price; that only the holding by farmers
can prevent the price from declining,
and that tho Southern farmers will not
be able to hold longer than the present
month. In other words, they have re
solved that the market shall go to
pieces in December.
In our opinion, the farmers can hold,
and ought to hold. We do not say that
they will get fifteen cents for cotton,
but we do say that if their line breaks
under the pressure of the "bears," if
they stampede, the price will drop an
other cent or two.
In order to hold cotton, the farmers
will have to practice economy. The
purchase of that piano or buggy may
have to be postponed. The Christmas
celebration may not be quite as joyful
if the cotton be left in the warehouse,
but in the end the farmers will get
their money back. The great danger
of a good crop is that it leads to habits
We arc quite aware that in giving
this advice we may not please all our
merchant and banker friends, but the
best merchants and the best bankers
want the farmers to prosper, want
them to save, to become year by year
more independent. The economical
farmer is a better customer for ten
years than is the extravagant farmer
who spends largely for one winter and
then "goes broke," and it is therefore
to tho highest interest of every busi
ness man in this city to encourage the
farmers in their efforts to prevent the
cotton market from going to pieces.
What the cotton crop will amount to
nobody knows, but most authorities
agree that it will not be very large.
Last week an English investigator es
timated the crop at eleven million bales.
That estimate is too small. The Wool
and Cotton Reporter, of Boston, thinks
it will be nearer fourteen than thirteen
million bales. That is a ridiculously
We can see no reason why cotton
should not be worth anywhere from
eleven to thirteen and a half cents, and
while anybody's pi'ediction is as good
as another's as to cotton prices we
think that the price will be twelve
cents at least before four months have
passed, and it may go higher. But if
the farmers turn loose their cotton in
the mannci that the Northern spinners
wish, the price will drop to nine or
eight cents sure.
NEW YORK'S PANIC.
The troubles of some of the New
York banks have been pretty serious,
and the money market is tight every
where on account of them, but the situ
ation is improving every day. The
"panic" was caused by the rascality
of some of the New Yorkers. It was
found that speculators had access to
the funds of some of the leading banks,
and "runs" on them began. Then New
York lost its mind. Millions of dollars
were withdrawn from circulation and
hoarded in strong boxes, and that
made money tight. But the panic is
over, and has been nothing but a New
York affair. It has been a pretty good
proof that Wall street no longer owns
the country. Chicago has been laugh
ing at New York, and all tho other
great cities have jogged along as
though nothing out of the common had
occurred. In sixty days the money
scarcity will have passed.
Banking and credit are curious
things. Ninety-nine per cent, of the
country's business is done by means of
credit. You put ten dollars in the bank
. and give a check for it. That check
may be endorsed to A. and by him to
B. and by him to C, and so until it has
paid a thousand dollars in debts before
it is presented at the bank. Meantime
the bank has had the use of the actual
ten dollars on which to do business.
Mr. Bryan used to say that the coun
try needed fifty dollars per capita for
the transaction of business, but if the
per capita were $100, and everybody
turned fool and got scared, $100 per
capita wouldn't be a drop in the bucket
for the business of this country. When
there is a panic men do turn fools and
get scared. They take their money
out of tho banks and tho wheels of
business stop; theratoof interost,which
is to say the price of money, rises and
the price of every other article goes
Tho lesson from this is that every
sensible business man is a depositor in
the banks, if ho has any money to de
jwsit. We know a man who raises cot
ton, but he won't trust his money in
banks. If all the farmers and business
men in this country felt an ho does cot
ton wouldn't bring six cents tho pound
today, and the rate of interest would
be eighteen or twenty per cent. Every
producer, therefore, has a duty to dq
in maintaining tho confidence in the
business of the country. If the depos
its in Laurcns county were twice what
they arc now wo should have better
markets for chickens and eggs and bor
rowing would be easier.

An Old Timer's Story of the
Game That First Saw It.
IT WAS USED BY AN AMATEUR
According to This Old Professional
Player, Arthur Cummings Was tho
Young Pitcher Who Was tho Origi
nator of the In and Out Shoots.
Speaking nbout the early history of
baseball the other day, an old time
professional player said there were
many things uot known generally.
"There Ifl, for instance, the matter of
curve pitching. Who pitched tho first
curved ball? No; dou't name any of
the men that won pennants and got
$10,000 a year. Tho pioneer wasn't a
professional, but an amateur?that Is,
he was an amateur until his curves
made him famous.
"His name was Arthur Cummings,
and ho was a Now York boy, a tall,
thin young fellow with hair as blond
as a chorus girl's. How he came to
discover curve pitching I don't know,
but it was generally believed after
ward that he hit on it by accident.
Ho tried it out for the first tlmo in
1807 in a game between two scrub
teams In Washington.
"Tho famous Excelsior club of New
York was then visiting Washington as
the guest of the old National club, and
the two ployed a series of games on
tho old White lot. Toward tho oud of
the sorleB soiuo one suggested thnt tho
young Now Yorkers who had come
over with tho Excelsiors make up a
scrub nine and ploy a nine of Wash
ington boys as a sort of comic Inter
"Tho suggestion was adopted, and tho
Now York nlno consisted of four or
five Excelsior substitutes and a num
ber of other young fellows, among
them Arthur Cummings. Tho Wash
ington nine was inado up In the main
of players belonging to the Junior Na
tionals, tho crack amateur team of
"Cummings was a rising youug pitch
or, but no one thought that there was
anything remarkable nbout him, and
tho Junior Nationals prepared to knock
hhn out of tho box. But when the first
batsman fanned out tho Washlngto
nlans began to look surprised.
" 'It's tho-dorndest thing I ever saw,'
said this batsman. '1 struck right out
at all three bulls, and every one of
them seemed to lump aside just as it
got near the plate. One jumped out
ward, another inward, and the third
seemed to rise. Maybe I'm beginning
to see things.'
"It puzzled Jewell, the catcher, too,
not to speak of AI Mills, the umpire.
Jewell caught all of tho balls because
it was then the custom for the catcher
to stand far back and catch on the first
bounce, but it made him dizzy.
"The second batsman of tho Junior
Nationals went to the bat and wal
loped tho air three times too. Al
Mills came up close to the plate to see
what was wrong. It looked to him as
If Cummings were wild.
" 'Just keep your head there,' he sold
to the third batsman, 'and you'll get
your base on balls.'
"This third batsman had a steady
hand, and, sure enough, he got his base
on balls. Cummings pitched tho ball,
and it seemed to be coming straight
for the plate, when suddenly, just as
it was ten feet or so away, it curbed
out and missed the plato by a foot.
Mills called a ball.
"The next ball came straight on, but
tho batsman, hoping to hit it and profit
ing by his experience, swung his bat
far out. But, Instead of curving out
like tho last one, it seemed to jump.
It crossed the plate on a level with
the batsman's eyes.
"Thnt scared him, and he just.stood
there without making a move until a
succession of wild balls sent him to
first base. The fourth batsman struck
out so easily that it was pathetic.
"Well, sir, Cummings began to get
more control over tho ball after that
first Inning, and Mills had to admit
that It was coming over tho plate; but,
except by accident, not a slnglo Junior
National batsman could touch It. It
Jumped; It sank; it wobbled from side
to side. Mills rubbed his eyes and won
dered how the thing was done. Cum
mings merely smiled.
"In the fifth inning one of the Na
tionals by dumb luck landed on the
sphere and drove It into the next coun
ty. There wore two men on bases nt
the time, and this home run brought
them home. That gave tho Nationals
three runs. So far as I know, they
mode no other runs in the whole game.
"After It was all over the whole
town buzzed about Cummings' queer
pitching. As for him, ho was as silent
as the grave.
" 'How do you moke the boll curve?'
asked n hundred persons.
" 'Does It curve?' Cummings would
"And then he would shut up and bo
come a clam.
"When ho got bock to New York he
was signed by tho champion Athletics
and become their star pitcher. Other
pitchers watched him and got on to
the trick, but it was three years beforo
?nybody did It as well as he. Dining
those three years his team kept the

Hunting th? Marlb?u.
Hunting the marabou Is attended
with great difficulty, as the bird pos
sesses wonderful cunning and often
contrives to outwit the most skillful
hunter. With laughable dignity It
measures the ground between Itself
and Its pursuer and takes very good
care not to exhaust Itself by too rapid
flight. If the hunter moves alowly the
bird at once adopts an equally easy
pace, but If tho hunter quickens his
steps tho bird Is off like an arrow. It
is -very difficult to get within gun
rango of this calculating creature, but
tho natives adopt a novel means of
capturing It, which the} bird, with all
Its astuteness, Is unable to compre
hend and falls an easy victim. A j
tempting morsel of meat Is tied to tho
end of n long stout cord which the
skillful hunter flings to a great dis
tance, as ho would a lasso, the bait
falling as near the fleeing bird as ho
can aim It. lie then conceals himself
hastily behind a bush or crouches low
on tho sand. Tho marabou, which al
ways keops its eye on tho hunter, see
ing him vanish, quietly Btops and de
vours tho bait, when It Is oaslly se
cured by the hunter, who runs toward
it, coiling the rope as ho goos.
