THE COTTON MARKET
FOR THE COMING WEEK
What Is the Prevailing Opinion an
to What (he Hulls und Hears will Do
.New Oi lcan:;, March 'JO.--This coin
ing week the COttOII inarkol Is ex
tremely likely to be deadened by tho
approaching session of congress. To
80me extent it was felt last week, and
this weok traders on both sides will
do more or less evening up of com
mitmcuta in order to he prepared for
any legislation that may come up on
It is believed that legislation of a
beneficial nature will ho attempted,
and that interferences with exchanges
will take the form of government su
pervision. 'I his is something that tho
best Piemen) in the cotton trade is
hoping for and openly working for.
As the situation now stands, however,
speculators will treat as bearish In
fluences any agitation in congress until
it s positively known that 'the meas
ures to hi- introduced are not similar
in character to the Scott bill which
failed last session.
V Weather Market.
it |h now much of a weather mar
ket and the daily swing of prices will
be the result more of the constitution
placed on the weather map than any
other factor. The market will open
for the week witli the trade anxious
to discount the weather developments
over Sunday. The forecast called for
rain over practically the entire cotton
ladt, and should the returns from the
belt indicate that general rains fell,
the advantage will he the hear side
for the feeling still exists that the
deficiency in rainfall as the result of
Winter drought has not been made up.
Of course with continued rains the
time will come when complaints of
too much rain will he heard.
Mnj Proven! I'lanilng.
A few days more of wet weather
and planting and preparations for
planting will be interfered with, while
in the very early sections it will cause
foul ami grassy crops. Statistics were
very bullish last week and the move
ment for this week started olT with
the promise that the Into-slght would
again bo very small.
The generally accepted theory is
that a week of large spinners' tak
ings Is as a rule followed by a week
of smaller takings. Last week tak
ings were exceptionally large, which
causes belief in smaller takings this
week. At tho same time the into
slght movement promises to he so
small that ii largo decrease in the vis
ible supply is possible, and after all
the variations in the visible supply
are the main features of the weekly
Statistics. The figures last Week
bullish as they were, had no effect on
the market hut it is unnatural to sup
pose that the statistical position can
continue to strengthen without caus
ing an upheaval sooner or later, and
many experienced traders ate watch
flgures closely, knowing what is hound
to take place when conditions ate rip*'.

CHINA WILL ACQUIESCE.

Peking, March 20.?China is not pre

Korostovctz, that China will acquiesce
unreservedly on Monday to the de

concerning the provisions of the trea

answer before Tuesday.
It is generally considered that then
was no alternative course in view oT
China's unprepaiedness for war. In

Plain Business Talk About The
First Cost, Maintenance Cost, Cost of Depreciation and Cost of
Manufacture. What they Mean to the Man Who is
' in the Market for an Automobile.
ARK VOl A BUS I N F.SS MAN? Do you employ business principles in your financial transactions, day by day.' Do
you fount tlie <-ost of every investment you make? OF COURSE VOl' ANSWER "YES!'1 If you don't you are wast
ing your linn- reading this advertisement. We want to sell you an automobile. It' you don't qualify us an advocate of
business principles you aren't in u position to buy one and we are both wasting our time.
A BUSINESS TALK WITH A BUSINESS M AN is the purpose of this advertisement. We take it for granted that
you want si motor ear. You tire right now considering the cost, iirsl cost, maintenance cost, cost of depreciation.
Vor WANT A GOOD CAR, A DEPENDABLE CAR?a ear for service in your daily work; a ear for pleasure in
your hours of leisure; a car your family and your friends can enjoy with you; a line-looking car that will always bring
you home as well as take you away.
YOUR PROBLEM is to tret the car that fulfills these conditions and fulfills Ihem at the least expense.
THE OVERLAND is one of the cars that yon have considered. It is this ear which we ttre making the subject of
The power of the OVERLAND runs from 20 (o 40 honest horsepower the wheel bases from 96 to Iis inches?the
prices for roadsters arc .+77."). $S.">0. #1250 and $1(100. The touring ear prices run from $900 to $l(i7f>.
You can readily sec thai each of these cars give more, for the money than uny other new model ear. The high-power
cars offer all that uny man wants all thai makers can give?save excessive size or power.
There isn't any car of its class on the market Ihol can l?e bought al anything like these figures.
THE (QUALITY AND PRICK of the Overland has thrown the world of motordotn into an uproar for some lime.
OTHERS CAN'T MEET IT. They can't meet ihe OVERLAND nt 2o per cent, more money. The cost of OVER
LANDS in Ihe past two years has been etil 28 percent. This means an average of $1100 per ear, and every cenl of that sav
ing has gone to OVERLAND buyers. This reduction was brought about by efficiency carried to far extremes. Thai was a
real reduction. It was not like cut prices on old-model ears. It was not like Ihe bargain sales of motor ears ihnl failed.
The Overland factory is the biggest independent automobile factory in tli<' world. Kvery pari thai goes into the OV?
KRLAND car is made in one of their several factories. The main Overland factory was once Ihe plant of the Pope-Toledo
?a famous high priced ear. So hundreds of Ihe men when ihey started on OVERLANDS had been trained for years in
high-class engineering. The inspectors here were men of advanced ideas. They knew materials and demanded the hesl

THE VAST DIFFERENCE IN EQUIPMENT for nntnufaeturing its cars ihe great ndvantagc of buying row nat
ional in large i|uautilies having their own cash to do business on making more aulninohiles than any independent auto
mobile faclory in Ihe world ami making every purl thol goes into Ihe OVERLAND is what distinguishes (he Overland
Company from the others in its class.
THK KNORMOUS SAVING which the Owrlund Company makes in Ihe production cost of its cars is readily apparent

The cars tit' the future will have fore doors. Roth in
Europe and America, in the lim si makes, fore-door models
are proctiCOlly universal. In buying a touring car for
youi'8 to come insist on a lore-door model. <lei a style
that Is coming in and not going out. \ tore-door model
cost no extra price. Don't pay anyotit extra for them.
The finest fore-door models like the Overland -haVo
the Hush bodies, giving six inches mote room in each BOUt.
They have the straight lines which uives impressive ap
pearance .Note how every curve ami line In the Overland
picture shows the car's up-to-daf n.-ss.
The Overland engine is one of the tptielest and most
flexible four-cylinth r motors built, ami on high speed
throttles from lour to lil'ty-five miles an hour.
One of the. cars has 1)0011 run 7,000 inib-s night and tiny
without stopping the engine. The parts are made like tip
parts of watches by automatic machinery, it needs onlfy
oil ami water.
In comparing, compare the power, the cylinder sizes, the wheel base and the size of the wheels. Compare each Item in the speci
fications to see where the difference lies. Compare the appearance, for your satisfaction depends largely on that. Note what a dif
ference hand-huffed leather makes. Note the wide difference in painting and varnishing. Note the difference in design. Note for in
stance, how the doors curve in the Overland model pictured here, to continue the curve of the front. Note thai the door handles are
on the Inside. All these little perfections indicate Infinite care. Give no car credit for anything mystical. Von can se:> what a cad
p-ives if you look at the facts. Mystical advantages are very expensive". They have doubled the proper price sometimes. Make Mio
comparison in justice to yourself and to Ovcrlaiuls. if the Overland gives more than any other car for the money we want the credll
and you want the saving, Be fair enough to lind it Out.
