THE COTTON MARKET
IS LOOKING UP
Bolls and Bears are Preparing* for a
Strong Campaign Jn the Spring.
New Orleans, Feb. 5.?The cotton
market this week promises to be a
little more exciting than it has been
for some time oast. For one thing
the bulls and the bears are more ag
gressively lined up than they have
been since the holidays and outside
speculation, especially in the new
crop positions, appear to be about
At the end of the last week the trade
was still very uncertain over the sit
uation in Europe in general, in the
Liverpool market in particular. Con
tinental mills were credited with hav
ing checked the decline in Liverpool
by buying large quantities of spot
cotton. Hulks predict that any fur
ther declines this week will stimulate
the buying of spots by continental
spinners who are known to be very
bare of supplies and that this buying
will act as an automatic support to
the market. Bears, however, claim
large stocks of yarns In England.
The bubonic plague in the Far Fast
has been given rather a prominent
place among the features of the mar
ket, because, if health conditions
there become worse, they would ef
fect .Manchester's business in cotton
cloths. For this reason news from
the Fast will be eagerly looked for
and one way or the other will be used
To some extent the long Interest
was liquidated last week, but there
still remains a large speculative long
interest in the market which bears
are generally supposed to be working
to dislodge. If further liquidation is
forced it will cause lower prices on
the old crops and because of the
danger of it the market letters from
commission houses that will be read
Monday morning will unite generally
advise outside traders to let the old
crop months severely alone until con
ditions are more settled und in the
meantime turn their attention to the
October and December this week
will assume considerable importance
on accoutn of the nearness of the
planting season and the growing d sire
to discount new conditions. Another
thing, the new crop months are trad
ing at such a great discount under the
old crop that much staddling trade
will be attracted to them.
The chief feature of interest cen
tred with the new crop deliveries will
be Texas and Oklahoma, and tele
grams said that plowing was being
stopped in some sections because the
grounds is so bard. With the middle
of February approaching the question
of winter rains will be of vital im
portance this week and the course
of the new crop prices will depend
greatly upon the weather map.

"More Blighting and More Destructive

Says Cardinal Gibbons.
Baltimore, Md., Feb. &.?In his ser

strongly against tho evils of divorce,

"If Christianity is the highest type

"There Is a social scourge more
blighting and more destructive of
family life than Mornionlsni. It is
the fearfully increasing number of
divorces throughout the United States.

Spring Weather in Winter.

weather has been mild and spring

we shall have a continuation of just

past thirty days or more The chief
danger to be apprehended is the de

of fruit blossoms.

began to shovel the coal.
In tho big living room abovo a man

The man crept cautiously down the
cellar stairs, the noise of shaking

Into the fire and, turning suddenly,

When he stopped, half-way up, to
kick the fur coat out of his way, Pa
