LAUIJENS, S. C., NOV. 21, 1917.
There are three possible continhgen
cies which could prevail next year
which would guarantee a high price
for cotton. One' is an early peace
by victory. Tih.'i is' at best I
doubtful possibility. The Germans
appear to be as strong now as ever.
Another is a piolongation of the pres
ent deadlock. 'T'his ran he maintained
only by unselfish deval ioln to the cause
we are coltitted to. Another is a
peace by a German victory. This is
not to be considered, yet if our
armIiies have not the wherewithal t(
fight they cannot light. In the last
instance, what satisfaction would
i tere he In walth, even 'ere it Saved
frontl war axes and indctnliti's, not
to inleniion i Ilun invasion with all of
its altroeitos possibilities? Another
contingency. however, tonlit tIe es

wouhl be to th1e advantage of the ag

Declarlny that the benenits of deep
breathing are overestimated, a medical
person says: "'hen a person breathes
very deeply he exercises the muscles
of his chest, shoulders and abdomen,
tind that is good for him. He drives
some blood from his trunk into his
feet and hands. If his feet. and hands
are cold that inreases his comfort.
These are real advantages of deep
breathing exercises once or twice a
dlay." Also, when an Amerienn citi
