Things look pretty blne at times,
on't they? Hiut, they have looked
ue before and we came out pretty
fell after awhile. The thing to do is
O meet the issues hoinestly and coir
geously. The man who owes must
neet his creditor fairly and the two'
an fight it out together nine times
/it of ten.
't'he farmieis of the South are being
.landed a large juicy lemon by the
administration at \ashin.ton. EK
ery few days the cotton markel is giv
enl a severe iolt downward by some
1)roinouncement o1' other dither fron
. 1. G. Ilarding, of the Federal lIe
!serve hanik, or Siecretary of the
I'reastiry llouston. in whichi t hey
make plta a that the cotton producers
]Must I dep( nid upon local resources to
secure a irolitable price for their
product. The mere pronouncemlent,
without the carrying of them into ef
feet, has (ost thi lie South eiin fa rlers
millionsof dollars anid iiltei put tle
trice of our staple product absolutely
belcix the cost of production. .\lr.
.itarding says that the lFedera Re
serve 'hank will provide eniough motley
for the "orderly marketing" of agr i
Cultural product s and beyond that
nothing need he exilectedl. While to
dump the cotton on thie' market as it
is being ginned would not be an or
derly way et' marketing it, that is
taken by the speculative clement as
the mcaning of the bal;':; liresident
and worlds of harm has already come
from it. If the 'eederal lteserve Hank
is to carry out the purposeS it was
intended for, viz.. to protect the ro
ducers against \\all street financiers,
now is the time fo:' it to show its
nsefulness. Wall street itself.
Wiall stru(.t itself couldn't have hal
