NOW Yo~k Sun:
the old titW feeling that a wife
ought never to waltz with any one
save her own husband or that an en
gaged girl might not dance with any
man save -her Dance is seldom ex
pressed nowadays. In fact, if mar
ried and engaged women dance at all
they feel quite as free to dance with
other men friends as with the man in
the world twith whom they pass most
of their time. Married persons who at
a dance or otiher social.gathering mak
ing a point of keeping much in 'each
other's company are quite likely to be
laughed at a little. In arranging guests
at .table the careful hostess never
places 'husbands and wives side by
side. For the same reason she does
not -place any momnbers of the same
family together 'If it can be avoided
nor would sh--if the dinner is pure
ly social purposes-place two parsons
together of the same profession or
identical interests. Anything that is
apt to lead to an exclusive conversa
tion Is to be avoided in planning for
any social gathering.
Sometimes am young married we
man in entertaining in her own home
gives in to the temptation so to ar
rantge the evening's entertainment
that she may be thrown to a consid
erable extent in her own 'husband's
company. This may be entirely be
cause she .inds greatest enjoyment
when conversing twith him. Truth
to tell she sometimes wishes to im
press -her guests with the fact of her
husband's devotion to her and their
own great congeniality. This is as a
matter of fact a purely selfish con
sideration. The .truly successful host
and hostess are so busy looking out
for the enjoyment of thdir guests
so eager that even the shyest and 'most
awkward of their guests should be
made to enjoy himself--that they have
little time to enjoy each other's so
ciety. A quaint little book on "Eti
quette for Ladies" published more
than half a century ago warns- the
yfoung married woman aiginst just
this thing. "In society we ought, above
everything, to -avoid being perional,"
it says, "for -a husband or a wife is
another self; and iwo must forget that
Aiid when you talk, if you want to
maike a success, feel alive and look
alive. There is no damper on con
versation like .the distant gazo or the
air of abstraction that somehow makes
the other person feel that "he isn't
wvorth undivided atttntion.

"As per Mr. Hester, it was showt
that' on Aug. 1, 1921, there was foun<

"Now let s 'add to this the Amerl

cumulated for the 'past several year
This brings our total world supply c
American cotton to 15,000,000 bale
It takea every bale of 4,000,000 bale
of American. grown cotton as a worlk
Ing quantity to keep the mills in mc

a stock of cotton in American manu
facturing warehouses at all times
there must be a certain amount in ra
transit at all times; there must be
certain amount afloat for foreig
ports, hoading 'for manufacturin
establishments; t'here must 'be a rea
sonable stock carried in the warehoue

conservative as -a iworking quantit

"This brings the total down to 11
