A Rale of Cotton.
in a recent issue of the Macon Ida.)
Telegraph the picture of a bale of
cotton was printed, together with the
editor's observations as follows:
This is a bale of cotton, a lifeless,
I inanimate thing; and yet it is worth
about sixty-live dollars?equal to a
I big steer, a good cow. or a coop of line
chickens. Put the three acres of land,
the labor and the commercial fertili
zer required to produce it would make
1 three big steers, three fine cows and
dozens of coops of fine chickens.
Cotton is undoubtedly the "money
crop" of this section, but the money
in the staple can be doubled by dlvld
j ing the area of tin' farm between stock,
grain and the root crops and cotton.
The problem of the farm is to keep
up the fertility of the soil. All good
l authorities agree that there is noth
ing equal to a plenty of barnyard ma
nure, but how can you gel the barn
yard manure without raising (sock?

raise more stock to make more manure
to produce more cotton. Cotton is

The Trnynhnms, Hldgeways and
PoolOS were of this number. Once in
a while an odd Character would spring
up in these families.
For Instance, Gabriel Poole is recall
ed. He let his Imagination run wild
with him. He got it into his head he
was a setting goose. He collected a lot
of tobacco sticks, arranged them Into
a nest in the corner of the house, near
the chimney, and got down on bis
nest to hatch out some goslings. When
someone came in and walked up to the
fireplace Gabe would stretch out his
neck and blow and hiss at them like
an old setting goose.
On another occasion he cllmed up on
a shed and called his people out to see
him sail off through the etherlal blue.
"NOW, watch me; when I get up the
right Hop i am going to ti> off."
He then commenced working his
arms like a big bird, and when he
thought that he had the right momen
tum he sailed off and fell flat on his
stomach on the hard yard, which
knocked the senses out of him. And
this trial convinced him that he was
made to walk, not to fly.
SENATOR SMITH SPEAKS.
He Opposed the Postal Saving* Hank
Last Thursday The State's Wash,
hintun correspondent telegraphed the
Senator Smith made his first speech
In general debate in the senate today
In opposition to the republican admin
istration's postal savings bank bill.
Oertain representatives of the Farm
er's union, led by "Charlie" Barrett of
Georgia, president, have been urging
democratic members to vote for the
postal savings hank bill, declaring
that it is In Cue Denver platform. Sen
ator Smith declared that no such mea
sure as this was in that platform, for
one of the specified declarations in the
platform was a denunciation of the
republican party for advocating a pos
tal savings system, which would ena
1 hie the federal government to take
I the savings of the people out of the
I cummunitles in which they arc depos
I ited. Mr. Taft advocated this very
thing and Senator Smith made reply
to the president's contentions.
II?' said he did not propose to bo
taunted into voting for an InqultOUS
measure by those who were too super
ficial to comprehend the platform.
The Denver platform reads: "We
favor a postal savings bank if the
guaranteed bank can not be secure.1.
. and believe that it should be so consti
tuted as to keep the dep< bilois' money
in the communities were depositors
live. lint we condemn the policy of
republican party in proposing savings
which they would aggregate the do
posits of the rural communities ami
bank under plan of conduct by
deposits the same while under govern
ment charges in the banks olWall
street, thus depleting the circulating
medium of the producing regions ami
Senator Smith further pointed out
that the so-called unthrifty Southern
States had Increased their national
banks from .V.m; in 1900 to 1,408 In 1909
other banks similarly; that the loan
and trust companies of the South had
' increased their deposits from $323,081
in 1900, to $r>S.ll l,S7l in 1909. So far
as the South Is concerned, be declar
ed, there is no urgent need for the re
publican party to devise means of "en
couraging thrift," as was the declared
object of ibis measure.
The senator got a good hearing and
made a good Impression.
