An Enterprise the Object of Which Is
to Fix the Prloe of Cotton
WASHINGTON: c6lonel E. S.
peters of Texas, president of the Cot
Jton Growers' Prbtectivo association,
has succeodbd in floating an entor
prl.a which, he says, will mean ten
cent cotton always. lie is on his
way home for New York, where lu
has been for some time in conference
with financial men of national reputa
tion, whom he has rucceeded In in
teresting in his scheme
Colonel Peters is one of tho incor
porators of the Southern Cotton cor
poration, Just formed with abundant
capital, for tho purpose of controll-
Jug the cotton output of the southern
states. The corporation will estab
lish warehouses throughout the cot
ton states and give the farmers re
ceipts for all the cotton received.
These receipts will pass current, and
"will be as good as gold," says the
The corporation wifl hold the cotton
for a price fixed, regulated by tho
supply and demand.
"It is our purpose," said Colonel
Peters, "to fix the price of our cot
ton, instead of allowing it to be fixed
In Liverpool and New York by spin
ners and speculators. It will be im
possible for us to get our scheme In
operation in time to handle this
year's crop, but we will be ready for
business before the cotton is picked
next year, and in two or three years
we are confident of being able to con
trol the output. It will be a bless
ing to the cotton planters of tho
south." .
Colonel Peters said that among the
men who are interested with him in
the enterprise is a New York finan
cier, whose check is good for $100,
000,000. The matter is to be dis
cussed at the convention of the Farm
ers' congress, tho Cotton Growers' as
sociation and the Cotton Growers'
Protective association on the 2()
Inst. Colonel Peters says there is
not the least doubt that the enter
prise-will be in operation before next
year, and will prove very beneficial
to the growers of cotton.
Checotah Has a Novel Way of Estab
lishing a Cotton Market
MUSKOGEE: The business men
of Checotah have decided upon a
novel plan to Induce the farmers lo
market their cotton In that town.
Every time a farmer sells a load ot
cotton in Checotah he gets a ticket
bearing a certain number. About
Christmas time, after the cotton is
all marketed, a public drawing is to
be held. Duplicates of all the num
bers given out to the cotton raisefo
will be put In a box 'and shaken up
and three of them will be drawn out
by a little girl, who is to be blind
folded. The three men holding the
lucky numbers will receive prizes
amounting to $300 m gold, con
tributed by the merchants. The
drawing brings thousands of people
to town every year, and is a big mid
winter 'event.
Fairmount Postoffice Robbed
ENID: Safe blowers broke into
the Fairmount postoffice and robbed
the safe of $500. Tho robbers forced
an entrance through the rear door of
the building and usofl a heavy ex
plosive to force the safe door. A pop
tlon of the money taken belonged to
the government and a portion to indi
viduals. J. N. Smith, the postmaster,
refused bo disclose tho amount of
money taken, but stated it was nearly
tli amount given above. Deputy
Sheriff Morrison and a posse of men
are in pursuit of the robbers, who are
supposed to be headed toward Guth
rie or Oklahoma City.
"To be happy," advises a magazine
writer, "fill yourself with sunshine."
You will get the same effects by let

Englishmen, and by Englishmen we
mean also Irishmen and Scotchmen,
have died as bravely as any Japanese
soldier ever died. The same is true
of Americans, of Freshmen, and of
every nationality. There is no braver
soldier or fiercer fighter than the
Abyssinian. Englishmen know how
bravely the Matabcles can die. In
tho recent slaughter of Tibetans they
died like stoics, fighting as best they
could. Physical courage is a fine
quality, but it is quite a common
quality. Moral courage is a finer
quality, but not so common. Every
war has Its heroes. The war between
the state abounded in heroic deeds
and unsurpassed exhibitions of forti
tude. Patriotism is indigenous, so to
speak, to all lands though more high
ly developed in some than in others.

Just what contribution to science
Miss Annie S. Peck has made by
climbing one of the loftiest of the
Andean peaks to a height of 20,000
feet is not made altogether clear. Per
haps it is important that the exact
elevations oL these towering points of
land should be accurately determined,
but beyond the addition of that bit of
Information to our stock of knowledge
mountain climbers of the type of Miss
Peck do not seem to accomplish much
more than the gratification of their
own love of adventure and their desiro
to be first at the summits of the ice
clad rocks at the "roof of the world."

The romance of the forbidden city
has expired. The Caucasian has set
his foot in the city of the grand lama.
The European is gazing upon the
white palace with the golden roofs
that crowns the sacred hill from
which for centuries the Buddhist pope
has reigned. In other centuries a few
Europeans managed to reach Lassa.
These straggling adventurers were
agents of religion; they wanted Lassa
for Christianity. They were . easily
driven away. The present invaders
are agents of political ambition they
will stay. Philadelphia Ledger.
In a broad sense the farm Is becom
ing more attractive every year. Tho
telephone and the rural delivery serv
ice, the greatly Improved machinery
for cultivation and handling of crops,
the dawn of tho township high and
the consolidated district school, the
formation of debating clubs and wom
en's societies, the building of better
churches, and the advent of the inter
urban road all of these influences
have created a new atmosphere for
the farmer. The day when the aver
ago farmer was a lout has passed.

When the American public gets to
the point where it can see that a "sol
Id citizen" namely, a man of wealth
and influence who breaks tho law is
as much a criminal as the individual
who steals that he may eat, the Amer
ican public will cease to bo vexed by
financial schemes that are frauds and
by automobiles that exceed the legal
peed limit. Washington Times,
Tho public have a right to tho pic
lures of public men under proper con
ditions and limitations. Tho employ
ment of tho caricature is legitimate
under similar restrictions. Tho cari
cature is the pictorial editorial and la
entitled to equal privileges with that
which Is written. Tho spreading
broadcast of tho picture ot the crim
inal undoubtedly assists in his appre
hension. But the prlvnte citizen, un
less an offender against tho laws,
should bo permitted to say whether or
not his likeness should bo made pub
lic for the scrutiny of thousands.
Boston Transcript.
At a recent meeting of the Interna
tional arbitration conference at Lake
Mohonk considerable emphasis was
put upon the fact that the railroad la
often the most effective of peacemak
ers, inasmuch as it develops the social
and commercial conditions and brings
Into closer touch neighboring coun
tries that have heretofore been at en
mity. It oftentimes materially aids
in dissolving those barriers and pre
judices which have tended to keep tho
different peoples apart and to con
vince them that "all tho world's akin."
This is especially true among tho
South and Central American countries
and when the railroad becomes more
of a factor there than It is at pres
ent there will bo fewer revolutions
and a far greater spirit of fraternity
and fellowship. New York Tribune.
For ages tho Armenians and the
Turks and Kurds have been the bit
terest of enemies and have waged
upon each other a warfare exceeding
in bnrbarlty the conflicts of savage
African or American Indian tribes.
Each seeks to outdo the other In
atrocity. Neither can have the
world's unmixed sympathy. Protests
by other powers will avail liflle:
There will be constant Turkish ag
gressions in Armenia and barbarous
reprisals by that country's people un
til sometime and somehow tho prov
ince Is placed under control of a pow
er strong enough to repress Turk and
Armenian alike. Just now ihe world
Is too busy. Cleveland Plain Dealer.
Until mankind have developed the
senso of Intuition to a point far above
and beyond present abilities In that
direction, tho public will probably
contlnuo to bo deceived injto parting
with its hard-earned dollars for the
enriching of keen-wlttted and unscru
pulous individuals. Thore should bo
no relaxation of the law with regard
to unworthy business schemes. In
deed, tho law should bo made more
stringent, If It Is altorod at all. But
It Is evident that the law can never
render the public entirely Immune to
erratic and spasmodic attacks of fool
ishness with regard to investment
schemes. Worcester Gazette.
Tho total annual income of the peo
ple of tho United Kingdom, as esti
mated by Sir Robert Glffen and Prof.
Bowley, approaches $10,000,000,000.
Our population at this moment Is as
nearly as possible 43,000,000. Divid
ing $10,000,000,000 by 43,000,000, we
get nearly $235 as the annual lncomo
per head of the British people. Tak
ing a family as fivo porsons, we see
that the average Income per family Is
about 91,175 per annum.
