When something bocomes wrong with your stomach,
look out! It is the seat of many troubles. If You have
gas on your stomach, heartburn, and a heavy, tired feeling,
BEWARE. Much so-called heart disease is only STOMACH
disease. Gas in the stomach causes a pressure against the
heart, makes a palpitation and often causes death. We

Favorable Weather, Balkan War, and

Send Prices to Loner Level?New
York Review of Market for Week.
New York., Oct. 18.?Prices have
recently entered new low ground
owing to favorable weather over
much of the belt, continued large re
ceipts, the war In southeastern Eu
rope, th? fe?.r '.bat larger powers
may become Involved In the struggle
and finally heavy selling partly
against actual cotton by the South.
Also spot houses have in some case
resumed Belling. Wall Street houses
and the west have also sold. To the
great majority of people here the
drift of prices h?s seemed to be in
evitable downward owing to the en
ormous receipts at Texas points, the
Mississippi river, tho tendency to In
crease crop estimates and the no
ticeable falling off In exports and
spinners taking as compared with
those of last year. If there should
be a spread of the war In Europe tho
effect it Is believed would be to cause
a very material decrease In the con
sumption of American cotton In Eu
rope, especially as the cotton crops
of Egypt, India and Russia are larger
this year than they were in 1911.
The disturbed condition of the Eu
ropean bourses at times has added
to the general depression. Southern
farmers have been reported as of
fering cotton freely. Spot markets
as a rule have lacked snap. Hut for
all that there are those who believe
that the decline hns gone too far
and that sooner or later there will be
a big rebound. They believe that the
mous proportions. They believe
short interest has assumed enor
that the market Is sold out and over
sold and at the first sign of wide
spread killing frost prices will move
upward, stimulated not only by a big
demand by overcrowded shorts on
both sides of the Atlantic, but also by
the excellent condition' of the cotton
goods trade both at home and abroad.
These observers declare their Inabil
ity to understand why cotton should
continue to be depressed with gen
eral trade in this country increasing
by leaps and bounds.
Toward the close of the week the
fear of frost In Texas, the calmer
feeling regarding the war In south
eastern Europe, the big spot sales in
Liverpool (14.000 bales on Friday)
and covering of shorts caused an ad

* LAST YEAR'S LESSON. *
Cotton, selling last fall for eight or
nine cents a pound?before it was
known Just what a "whopper" the
crop was?Is now selling for eleven
cents (nearly twelve) And this, de
spite the fact that the official statis
tics now show that the crop was over
16,000.000 bales?bigger than anybody
dared predict In the beginning.
The advance has come after the
great bulk of the crop has passed out
of the hands of the men whose sweat
and labor brought it into being. Mil
lions and tens of millions of dollars
that should have gone to enrich the
plain farmers of the South have gone
Into the hands of speculators, mer
ihants and cutton buyers.
Rut for last fall's stampede to sell
?the'wholesale flooding of an already
satisfied market?the farmers might
have gotten eleven cents last fall as
easily as the speculator gets It now.
It was a risk to take, because as
Henry Grady said, "Cotton is a darn
fool/' but The Progressiv? Farmer did
take the risk of continually urging
farmers to hold for better prices. We
predicted that cotton would be twelve
cents by spring, and If the crop had
been no bigger than conditions thea
Indicated, It would have gone to twelve
before now. Even with a 16,000,000
bale crop, It is nearly twelve. And our
readers who followed The Progressive
Farmer's counsel, refusing to be
frightened by the declining market or
by eight and nine-cent offers have
