A commercial report says: "What
ever the drawbacks the industrial r, t*
situation, it must be remembered that
the agricultural classes of the United
States are still unusually prosperous.
Crops have not been large, but farm
ers have been getting good prices, and
the south is enjoying a prosperity
never before equalled. It has been
estimated that the south will receive
fully $300,000,000 more for this year's
crop than it did for the big crop of
1898. Whether this calculation is cor
rect or not, it is very evident the
south will be a big buyer of many
articles this year, and trade in that
section is likely to be large and
profitable."

mankind, the United States holds
that position with regard to the
inter-oceanic canal.

cuss the possibility of the United
States committing an act of such
baseness as to abandon the new
republic of Panama.
President Roosevelt faces the great
issue squarelv and he does not mince
his words a bit. He further says:
"The question actually before this
government is not that of the recogni
tion of Pana ma as an independent re
public. That is already an accom
plished fact.''

Henrv R. Cobb, editor and founder
of the Park Rapids Enterprise, issued
a very fine Christmas number of
twelve pages, with a "jolly old Santa
Claus" design for the first page. The
most interesting feature of that whole
number to the writer was the article
on "Evolution of the Enterprise" in
which Mr. Cobb tells also of the evo
