Six of the games were with Harbinge,
Mann's Harbor losing the first, 8 to 5,
and winning the others by scores of 11-7,
13-6, 21-3, 8-1, and 21-0- The one game
played with Edenton was won 4 to 1
In three games with, Wanchese, Mann's

THE PRICE OF COTTON
We have said it before and say it
again: In order to pay the labor that
produces it and the capital invested in
it anything like the same' returns that
labor , and capital elsewhere get, this
year's disastrously short crop of cotton
should bring 40 cents "a pound.- We wish
we could say it will bring 40 cents, but
we can at leasj; say that there are just
four reasons why priees are not now
mounting toward that figure:
Harry R. O'BTien answers the big
question.' He has talked with bankers
who lend, and they have told him the
kind of men they lend to.
Are you one?
He has talked with farm
ers who can borrow, and
they have told him how
to establish bank credit.
It's surely worth a dollar
of any man's , money to
learn how to build up
credit so he can walk into
the bank, and say to the
president: "Lend me a

Second the delay in" ratifying the'
Peace Treaty " and putting work back
on a peace basis.
Third, the unsettled conditions in the
financial world, resulting in the English
Jpound, normally worth, $4,86 2-3 in
America, now being worth only $4.35.
This means that any purchase in Amer
ica now costs an English buyer 10
per cent premium for exchange on mon
ey. The Peace Treaty matter, kowerer,
will soon be settled; labor troubles seed
in process of adjustment and' we must
believe that the abnormal situation with
regard to English money will soon; ad-
hjust itself. '
The fourth reason why cotton prices
are not climbing toward 40 cents, how
ever, is most important of all. ,This
reason is simply the belief that the farm
ers will let the crop go for less. No
well organized union of town laborers
woHld submit to any less remunerative
prices for their labor, however; and why
should the farmer? If he goes,. on a
strike, he can hold out longer than ine
city wage earner, and why should he
not in a peaceful and legal way refuse
to take less than a fair price for the
Troduet of his toil? .
In . view of the reduced, acreage this
year, a good crop of cotton should have
brought 33 to 35 cents a pound. With
a disastrously poor crop such as we
have, a 40-cent price means only a liv
ing wage for the producer; and he, like
the city laborer, owes it to his family
and those dependent on him to demand
this living wage. The' Progressive

Filling prescriptions is the smallest part of the busi
ness of a modern drug store. Drug stores to-day carry
a thousand and one items, of general merchandise the sales
of which in the aggregate overshadow its drug sales like a
skyscraper overshadows a telephone booth. The soda foun
tain sales alone in this drug store exceed our sales of drugs
any day in the year. r
The above fact explains why druggists occasionally
neglect their prescription business to build up the showy
and more profitable ixpnt end of the business. But we
haven't fallen into that.. We pride ourselves upon our pre
scription business "andat the prescription counter you will
find us. We maintan a complete and constant supply of
absoltely fresh drugs, bought in every instance from - the
best labratories in America, and Europe. And we follow
scrupulously your" doctor's prescription. Ask your doctor
what he thinks of our prescription service.
