evening before, reassembled for the
final exercises. The teachers and pu
pils met at the school building and
marched, two abreast, to the Baptist
church where the meeting was held.
Rev. s. M, Hollingsworth lad In pray
er. County Superintendent. Qco. L.
Pitts, was Introducd who spoke at
length on the Progress and Needs of,
our schools. His ? utile address was
good, interesting, and nl times elo-1
qucnt. He pointed <mi with clearness
and force the improvement in school
buildings, efllclency in teaching force,
increase in finances, etc. The speak
er grew somewhat eloquent when be
[declared that Case evident advances
in school work have been made not
withstanding the loss of Dispensary
profits. While he fell the need and ex
pressed a desire for still better school
houses, more money, better teachers,
more active and Interested trustees.
Mr. I'itts declared that the greatest
need of our educational work today is
the sympathy, the love, and the pray
ers of the people for its success.
Supt. I'itts was followed by Rev. 0.
M. llolllngsworth who made a very
str:?ng and earnest appeal for moral
training in our schools. As a life of
solid and unwavering character should
be the result of educational develop
ment, the moral feature in the train
ing of our children cannot bo in glect
cd. lie .moke of the example and in-;
llueuce of teachers and the duly of
trustees in the selection of teachers

The Cotton Market.
There was a resumption of the up
ward tendency of eotton prices at the
start this week, but later a reaction
set in that carried the July option
about. 60 points below the high level
touched on the present movement. In
the early trading practically all of
the news was of a strengthening char
acter, continued complaints of Urought
and more optimistic trade advices
from domestic centers being the chief
influences In this respect, while sup
port was also derived from the per.
slstent decrease in the local certificat
ed supply and the bullishness of the
statistical situation in general. These
various factors prompted leading in
terests to assume a somewhat aggres
sive attitude on the buying side, es
pecially in the old crop positions, and
there was considerable covering in
the new crop options in anticipation
of an unfavorable weekly Government
weather report on Tuesday. The offic
ial statement indicated varied condi
' tlons throughout the belt and v m of
such a nature as to produce COl i?!er
able Uncertainty among the specula
tive element Most sections of Texas
were said to need rain and the* drought
In the Carolinas was regarded as be
ing serious, which is leading some
people to expect that the first Govern
ment condition estimate of the season,
to be issued on June -, will prove less
bearish than previously anticipated.
It is generally gellevcd, however, that
the report will show a higher condi
tion than the >?- per cent, on May 2~>
last year, the date covered by the re
turns, and the increase in acreage will
probably be sufficient to bring the area
under cultivation Up to the largest
total in the history of the South. Fol
lowing the Initial advance the market
turned heavy under liquidation by
prominent bull interests und rather
aggressive short selling, although the
new crop months were relatively
steady In spjte of more favorable prl- I
vate crop advices. These comprised
reports of showers in the Carolinas,
and the Journal of Commerce in a
special summary noted favorable pros,
pects in both Georgia and Alabama,
especially in the latter. The stock of
cotton at New York has dwindled with
great rapidity Mid is down to only
about 00,000 bales, against il's.ihhi at
tlie opening of May and 210,000 bales
at this time a year ago. while there
is little of the stnple coming from the
South to replenish ibis small supply.
Advices from the leading domestic
cotton goods centers tell of a more
general Inquiry and increased busi
ness. This Is attributed largely to tin
advent of warm weather in many sec
tions, which has stimulated iho retail
demand for seasonable meVchaiidisc
end created more activity its well in
