A One Sided Cat We cannot see how, against the mass of evidence that has been presented in The Republican by men who are peculiarly qualified to testify against the Xeril to the long staple cotton Industry of this valley. Involved, any cotton grower may persist in a pur pose to Invoke it by the introduction by the way of an experiment, of a cotton of an inferior type to displace Pima which has been developed to its pres ent high standard and for which a market is being ateadily established. We have had the papers of Dr. T. H. Kearney and Mr. O. F. Cook of the department of agriculture and of Mr. Edward F. Parker who has been more exten sively associated with the cotton industry here than any other man, and who, of the residents of the val ley, has more closely studied than any other, the various types of cotton, market conditions of the past and the present, and is, therefore, qualified to speak of the future. We would especially urge upon all growers to study the paper ot Mr. Parker which appeared in The Republican of Monday. " Against the testimony of these men, what have we? Nothing at all except the fact that a certain typo of cotton which can be raised on millions of acres in the southeast and which has been found not to be adaptable to conditions under irrigation, just now under abnormal conditions in the markets, is enjoying a favorable position. That is all. And, on this flimsy evidence there are some growers, though only a few, who would condemn the rima cotton industry which has been so thoroughly and painstakingly built up, to destruction by con tamination of seed and by the possible introduction ot cotton plant pests which have already laid waste the Sea Island cotton Industry. They would deprive thi3 valley of the freedom from competition which its high grade cotton enjoys by substituting for it a type of cotton which can be grown over so vast an area that its over-production any year might result in a glutted market. It is this over-production of the shorter types of cotton that so fx-equently reduces the price of cotton in the south ern states to a ruinously low level. We have in addition to the evidence in favor of Pima cotton to which we have referred, the testi mony of Mr. James Kendall, an Englishman who has been in the city a short time, an expert of many years in linen and cotton fabrics. He writes to The Republican: -' "Before leaving Phoenix I would say that I have b-w?n greatly interested in your articles regarding Pima cotton. Many years ago I used to buy for the British army and navy thousands and thousands of pieces of sheetings and cloths. In fact, I would buy one season's output of certain grades at. that time. It was a pleasure for me to handle finished goods made of Egyptian cotton. For the last five years I have handled large quantities of goods made of Pima cotton. I must confess that although an Englishman, I prefer your Pima cotton to the Egyptian because of its beautiful silky finish, its high grade, its color, and lastly, its wonderful wearing quality. I profess to be a cotton and linen expert and I believe the highest quality of cotton to be Pima." In an Interview Mr. Kendall said that he believed that in a short time Pima cotton would stand alone as a cotton of the highest grade. Mr. Kendall form erly spent a great deal of time in Egypt and he ob served the deterioration of cotton there. Deteriora tion, he said, is progressing until now he believes that the best Egyptian will shortly rank as third grade. The Imperial valley affords a striking illustra tion of the danger of trying to grow several types of cotton in the same district, the cross-breeding de veloped having produced an inferior type of hybrid cotton for which there is no established market. Careful and thorough tests of these varieties, con sidered as a substitute for Pima should be made by the government at the Sacaton breeding station so that the fullest information may be obtained. And these testa the government is prepared to make. But to spot the valley over with patches of short staple cotton Is a dangerous experiment, thoroughly disapproved by all those who have made an impartial and scientific study of the question. The night air in Washington In April usually de mands a more protective garb. The advisability of "drastic action" was dis cussed. The president said, "Of course, Mr. Bryan you understand what drastic action in this matter might ultimately mean in our relations with Mexico ?" To which Mr. Bryan in the night air, his pacifism evaporating, replied, "1 thoroughly appreciate this, Mr. President, and fully considered it before telephon ing you." There was then a slight pause after which the president asked Josephus how he felt about it. The latter "frankly agreed," though so far, there had been no pronouncement of any program. Thereupon the president dii-ected Mr. Daniels to wire Admiral Mayo to take Vera Cruz. Mr. Tumulty, now that the conversation had be come triangular gave rein to his imagination, ' 'As I sat at the phone on this fateful morning, away from the hurly-burly world outside, clad only in my pajamas and listened to this discussion, the tenseness of the whole situation and its grave possi bilities of war, with all its tragedy, gripped me. Here were three men quietly gathered about a phone, paci fists at heart, men who had been criticized and lam pooned throughout the whole country as being too proud to fight, now without hesitation of any kind agreeing on a course of action that might result in bringing two nations to war. They were pacifists no longer, but plain, simple men, bent upon discharging the duty they owed their country and utterly disre garding their own personal feelings of antagonism to every .phase of war. , "I pictured the flagship of Admiral Mayo, with Its fine cargo of sturdy young marines, riding serenely at anchor off Vera Cruz, and those aboard the ves sel utterly unmindful of the message that was now on its way through the air, an ominous message which to some of them would be a portent of death. When the president concluded his conversation with me his voice was husky. It indicated to me that he felt the solemnity of the whole delicate business he was now handling, while the people of America, whose spokesman he was, were at this hour quietly sleeping in their beds, unaware and unmindful of the grave import of this message which was already on its way to Vera Cruz." Perhaps a chronological disarrangement will be ' noted In the statement, ''Here were three men quietly gathered about a phone, pacifists at heart, 'men who had been criticised and lampooned throughout the whole country as being too proud to fight." -. The phrase "too proud to fight" had not yet been heard. The president himself coined it at a later date when a large part of the nation was clamoring for action against Germany. It is true that many Amer icans were urging intervention in 'Mexico, some per haps unworthily, but others sincerely. The only criticism of the administration was because of its lack of a Mexican policy, the apparent futility of a hope that a constitutional government might somehow come out of the discord of corruption and ignorance with which that unfortunate country was over whelmed. Intervention was demanded not in behalf of either or any of the Mexican factions, but for the security of American citizens. If Mr. Tumulty's perspective of passing events was at times fault', because of his too close prox imity; if the importance of many of them have been minimized by time from his estimates, his work is none the less faithful and useful in giving' us an in sight into a stirring period of our existence, and a "close up" of a man who was one of the great figures of his time and perhaps of American history. Though one of the most ardent of Mr. Wilson's admirers, Mr. Tumulty's adoration of him is not blind. This biography will undoubtedly be heavily drawn upon, by future essayists and historians. Coming In With tha Cash The generous and prompt action of the Santa Fe railroad in contributing its quota of $25,000 of the Cave Creek control fund, we think will stimulate the other parties in interest to Immediate action. The money ot the Santa Fe is now available and we sup pose that of the private contributors will also be, the Arizona Eastern, the Standard Oil company and the Union Oil company. All these private contributors have a double interest, or ought to feel it, in the most rapid prog ress of the work. Kot only have they all valuable property lying in the path of Cave Creek floods but like all property owners of the state they are con cerned in the conservation of property not their own against destruction, thereby assuming the share of taxes which should have bee-n borne by the de stroyed property. It is desirable that all the money which has been pledged .by the state, the county, and the city as well as by the private concerns, be available by Decem ber 1. The city's share of $100,000 we understand is already available as that of the Salt River Valley Water Users Association has been ever since last spring. That Pup By Herbert Johnson The Work of Mr. Tumulty Ha never weary of the perusal of Mr. Joseph Tumulty's biography of Woodrow Wilson as he knew him. There is an intimacy in it rivaled only in Bosweil or in the documents of Las Cases, Gourgaud and Montholon concerning the closing phase of Na poleon. vn We have not yet come in the biography to the Great War. Our latest readings are of the course ot th administration toward Mexico. We think that therein Mr. Tumulty is too hyperbolic, considering the outcome of the events which he so breathlessly describes. For instance, following the Tampico incident when word reached the state department of the ap- proach to Vera Cruz of a German vessel bringing I rms to Huerta, Mr. Tumulty became dramatic. "About 2:30 o'clock on the morning of the twenty-first day ot April, 1914," he writes, "the tele phone operator at the White House called me at home and rousing me from my bed Informed me that 1 the secretary of state, Mr. Bryan desired to speak to mo at once on a very urgent and serious matter." TJiereujion ensued a conversation which became quadrangular, Mr. Bryan, Mr. Tumulty, the president and Secretary Daniels of the navy standing in the anctes. Mr. Tumulty at any rate was in pajamas. Some striking things occur in the make up ot the best regulated papers. In a headline on Thurs day morning, the Los Angeles Times exalted by the day piously screamed, '"Now, therefore. Our God, we thank Thee and praise Thy glorious name." In big ger and blacker letters the Times telegraph editor still more vociferously proclaimed across the page, "Murders for Fifty Dollars." Perhaps the Times found cause for thanksgiving in the circumstances that this low-priced crime was committed in Chicago, and not in Los Angeles. BALD Baldness is more common among meat eaters than among vegetarians, says Charles F. Pabste, writing in the Western Medical Times. He says, to check loss of hair, you should use tonics, take special exercises, special foods, special drinks, and exert mental effort only moderately. It isn't worth it. Man once was as hairy as a monkey. Fully civilized, he will be as hairless as an egg. The bald man usually lives in advance of his time, even though a bald head probably started the theory. GOLD Steadily the world's gold flows into the United States. More than half of it is here already. Makes bankers feel secure to see our gold holdings approach the $4,000,000,000 mark. One of these mornings they'll wake up to the Gold Danger. More gold we have, more certain our currency is to bo kept inflated, with prices unnaturally high in consequence. Also, less gold other countries have, more their money slumps. It is our gold horde that is strangling foreign trade. Better if some of it were flowing out to our customers. You can't eat gold. METER One of your pet pests is the gas meter. Forgive it, a moment. It is said to be the most accurate measuring device ever invented. Put 100 of the best watches against 100 meters in a test for accuracy, exposed to same varying conditions of temperature and humidity, and the meter will win out every time. That is, unless the factory adjusted it to register too much. Yet the gas meter was invented by Bill Richards, back in 1S44. Inventors have constantly tried to im prove it, but always have had to give up. All of the clever men aren't livius iu our generation. pi 10. 1 to BtvitvE Homers f NOw.som , mustn't W !

LARDNER THE CRAWL STROKE I S NO USE IN TENNIS To the Editor: I am often asked the question how often do I go to town, meaning N. Y. City, and when I say I don't go thero no oftener than I can help why they look at me like I was a moron or something and once in a while somebody makes the remark that they would think I would get bored to death staying out here all the time and I must be crazy to live so close to N. Y. and yet hardly ever go there and enjoy the excitement, etc. Well, friends, when a man gels to my age they don't go chasing around after excitement, but even if I felt a craving for same I wouldn't half to leave- home to get same. Anybody that thinks Great Neck is a 2d Gopher Prairie if crazier than Bugs Banr, They certainly ain't been nothing monotonous about my home life lately, for though I have got prac tically the same wife and kiddles which I have had for many a moon, still tney ain't har dly -a day passes when 1 don't see a strange face in tho house and they's been instants when I was introduced to the new nurse and the new cook the same day. and before I could make out which was which they was both gone. The most of them don't'walt for no letter of recommendation, though they has been a few who I would of been glad to write about at great , length. For instance, they was one nurse who I could of recommended as tha most hopeful lady ever I seen. She would steal a door or a double bed and hope they wouldn't nobody miss it. The day she left I got a rope out ot the garage and tied th? house to a tree. . The last exodus was a married cou ple that the husband orove. the fliv and the wife was a incendiary. but we was willing to eat what she burnt because the husband could go to the station and back without changing tires. But they's something wrong with all of them and it turned out that this guy had been a Yankee fan ever since "the American League come to N. Y., and after the world's serious he just simply quit work and set around all day scolding different umpires. A NEW GAME But a person don't half to depend on the servant problem for excite ment .as some of the boys has started a new game alled law suits, and they have got me playing on defense. The fifth to the last driver we had was coming along through Gensington one day with a car load children when all of a sudden they was attacked by a taxi, but my man knocked tne taxi ior a Kou. spilled a couple of fares named Dn..nhri. and Cohen or something. Those 2 hovs was hurt so bad that they had to walk over to the drug store and buy a nickel's worth c court plaster, and in a couple weeks I got notice from their lawyer that the both of them was practally and wouldn't never io aiue to work no more ami would 1 please ,.m, nr-rost with $20.f'0U. Well, friends. I decided to not pay It and the other reason was because I figure that if a man is fixed so that he can't work no more he should ..vf in v,o tickled to death and v.e a rnrrt of thanks instead trving to put the screws on me for a week's pay. ions about this same time they was a rumor spread around that the fnurt whicn tne man nun tn have it built by the of June was now ready for action ,.i the man that built it would kind . lit, tr have his pay for same. t shoes and went out and n look at it and if they hadn't told me it was supposed to be a ten nis court I would of thought it was the Great Lakes. I guess the man must of heard some'iotiy refer to the net eame and thought tennis was some kind of fishing. irfoj anyway. I says I would settle . as sbon as land was sighted and the man savs thoy was a svins up the hill behind the court and the spring drained right down on the court, but that wasn't his fault, n- he hadn't even knew the spring was there when he started to build the court, so told him to get better acquainted with the spring and see if he couldn't coax it to drain somewlieres else, and when he done that I would settle for the court. But he went awav mad and now juy lawyer is exchanging mush notes After all is said and done we are strangers in a strange world. No apter name has been coined for us than the title Pilgrims and Strangers. There is Something or Somebody behind the uni verse making it go. We call it God. We but give a name to a mystery. The scientist probes the sea, the earth, the mind. He is like a Hottentot wandering in New York. He sees many curious things and inexplicable. He endeavors with his limited intelligence to classify them. For what we call knowledge is not at all apprehen sion ; it is classification. k He sees things act the same way twice, three times, ana proclaims a law; he nas not the slightest idea why. it acted in the first place. What we term knowledge is mere familiarity; a scientist is a person who is at home with certain phe nomena, those of his chosen field, or has learned from another who is at home with them, and is like the society dame who has learned how to use her spoon. The unlearned person says all things are heavy; the learned persons says every particle of matter attracts every other particle of matter in certain proportion ac cording to the law of gravitation ; the latter has simply extended his generalization a little farther than the former; he has been about more in the universe ; but like his unlearned brother he, too, is a foreigner in the cos mos, and returns home to the infinite having seen strange sights. Who can tell why bread makes life and arsenic causes death, except to say that they have always done so And what is life? A ghostly visitor, whose face we have never seen. When it is present in this mass of flesh, certain chemical reactions take place, the sum of which we call growth; when it goes away, the minute the strange spook vanishes, certain other chemical changes begin in the body, and we rot. But what is life? Nobody knows. Nobody ever made a living thing that is, out of anything that was not already alive. What makes one human being grow large and an other grow small? Said Professor W: J. Halliburton at O TttflfitlTlff AT CAlfintlcfd V,rt f U I ni. , "One of the many ductless glands like the thyroid, which have an important influence on health, is the pituitary, situated at the base of the brain. This com paratively insignificant little body is about the size of a pea. It is concerned in sending out to the tissues some thing which stimulates growth. If it sends out too much, overgrowth results; if it sends out too little, there is dwarfism. The happy meaji is what we call health. It is supposed to be a great mystery, anything about the ductless glands. Why the pituitary gland acts so and so is no more mysterious than why your fingernails keep growing in the night. At the same meeting Professor Lloyd Morgan re ftrretl to "the theory that memory is stored in the bi air" as "clotted nonsense." Quite so. So is any other theory. "the boys would half to add the Australian crawl stroke to their jinn " with his lawyer and in the mean" while if the tennis assn. decided to hold the next championships on my court the boys would half to add the Australian crawl stroke to their game. In most towns where I have lived, the first thing your new neighbors asks you when they come to call is: "Have you got your gas con nected," or "Has the telephone been put in.". But the natural question In this town is have you made arrange ments for a lawyer. When they ain't enough new nurses or law suits to keep a person enter tained, why all you have got to do is visit one of the barber shops and ask them to trim your hair. The sport of fencing takes a quick eye, but when you get in on of these here barber chairs you have got to watch your opponent a whole lot closer than if he just had a sword. Before the contest starts I always Bay: "Now I only want it trimmed around the edges and 1 don't want the clippers on the sides and I don't want nothing off the top." Might Just as well set down and say: "Scalp me, barber. " When the game is over you look in the glass and if you have still got your cars you win. They say it don't rain in this part of N. Y. nowheres near as much as in California for inst, but still 1 guess they's no danger of a stranger not knowing whether be is here or in Arizona, and when it does rain our whole family parks themself in the front windows to wave goodhy to our driveway, which was built by the same party that put in the liquid tennis court. The driveway don't generally go no further than one-half way acrost the main public road, but its fun after the rain to set and watch the flivs approach It and hesitate and re fuse the jump. So, os I say. a man can get plenty of thrills in this life without going j a stone's throw from tho 1st and 2t j nortgage, and it has got so now that i I can't enjoy myself at the theater or opera bouse in N. Y. City on acct of the dread thought that I may be missing something at home. RING W. LAB.DNEK. Great Neck. Nov. ;5. salted or unialted water? F. W. H. A. Potatoes should be put on to cook in salted, boiling water. Salt added at the beginning of the cook ing reduces the loss of mir-.-ral mat ter about one-third. Q. Why do we have n "e" in liquefy instead of "i" sine liquid is spelled with an "i"? M. S. B. Liquefy is derived from lique facere; ilquers, Latin words mean ing to be liquid, and to make. Liquid is derived from liquidus (liquer liquere), the Latin word meaning to be fluid. From these base words you will see the reason for the "e" in liquefy and the "i" in liquid. Q.
