The Woman of It.
Coldest day and thinnest gown
That's the woman of it;
Cheek endorsements upside down
That's the woman of it;
Worshipping some stageland star;
Duds and diamonds held o'er par;
Stepping backward off the car
Thai's the woman of it;
Handing out the cut unkind
That's the woman of it;
Fitful as an April wind
Thai's the woman of it;
Hearts are looked on as more toys;
Frivolities mistook for joys.
And life a game th.it oft annoys?
That's the woman of it;
Childhood snug in circling arms
That's the woman of it;
I.ove that bucklers 'gainst all harms
That's the woman of it; '
A glow of wordless sympathy
That lights the storm-tossed man at sea
And sends him forth, triumphantly
That's the woman of it.

CUT COTTON PRODUCTION.
Strong Address to Fanners Issued by
Union Executive Committee.
At a meeting of the Slate executive
committee of the farmers' Union, held
in Columbia last Tuesday, the following
address, prepared by Slate President
11 arris, was issued;
"Why should the farmers he alarmed
over the cotton situation when cotton is
scarcer than il has been for 30 years,
and there are more people to wear
clothes than ever before in the history
of the world? There is a cry on every
hand that the mills are curtailing their
products. Why, bless your heart, the
Tnills will have to curtail as there is not
enough cotton to go around. There is
a shortage of 1,000,000 bales in the
world's supply 4,000,000bales less than
is actually needed. That means that
the mills must curtail 25 per cent, be
cause of lack of cotton. Now, don't
bo frightened by the curtailment cry.
It's from necessity and not choice.
"Suppose you have but eight ears of
corn to feed to your horse. It would
be out of the question for you to feed
ten ears. You wouldn't have the corn.
You would have to curtail to eight.
Tint's the condition of the mills. They
lack the cotton to run on full time.
"It is a fact that cotton is scarcer
now than it has been in 30 years, and
it stands to reason that goods will also
bo scarcer in proportion. Hp to a few
^months ago the demand for goods was
?u> great that they could not be sup
plied. Many milU had sold their output
[up to July 1. The mills have had a
custom of laying up a large surplus of
[goods in warehouses, but at present
there is no such surplus. The stock
lore is daily diminishing. It is true
Hit some mills have stopped, but that
invariably done to make repairs on
kchinery or to put in new machinery,
n'ch is very essential to their future
success. Along with the curtailment
cry comes the information of new mills
"Our mill men are good business men
and cannot be blamed for stopping their
mills when they cannot make ir profit.
It is good business judgment to do so.
"The producer should use the same
business sense and curtail his produc
tion when there is no profit. Every
farmer should cut his cotton acreage at
least 35 per cent, and plant food crops
instead. This will solve the problem
and give the farmer a profit.
"The holders of spot cotton are urged
to bear in mind that the shortage of
1,500,000 bales in the world's- supply in
itself means a curtailment of 25 per
cent. It also means that cotton goods
will be higher than they have been in
years. Show your wisdom now by
planting at least 25 to 35 per cent, in
ocas, as there Umore money in a good
pea eTr>p than There is in cotton, no
.uralter what the price of either.
"In conclusion, let me urge you to
hold on for the maximum. Curtail
your present crop and raise all your
home supplies and success is yours,
The maximum is not unreasonable and
.should be had.

SEVERAL BUILDINGS ASSURED.
$400,000 Appropriation for Federal
Buildings in This Slate Likely.
Washington, April 23. -While The
News and Courier correspondent is not
in a position to give exact information
regarding what Congress will do when
the public buildings bill is reported to
morrow for Orangeburg, Alken, New
berry, Darlington, Gaffney, I.aureus,
Union, Anderson, Sumter, Columbia,
Edgefield, Abbeville and Camden in the
way of Federal buildings, it is assured
that of the places named seven or eight
will get direct appropriations. Three
will be taken care of to a small extent
and the others will not. share in the ex
penditure of public money this year.
The total amount that will go to those
places is said to be a little over $400,
This information is believed to be cor
rect, but until the bill carrying the dif
ferent amounts is formally reported
more definite information cannot be
? With more than $400,00,0 being ex
pended in South Carolina next year for
labor and materials of different kinds it
should go far towards giving trade and
employment to those suffering from the
present money depression should it con
tinue until that time. It will mean also |
that one of the stubbornest lights
Speaker Cannon has ever put up
against any appropriation bill has been
