They are all weloome—even a peasant spot can be found for the ‘ iv let” of the Gazette. A max who does not pay bis debts is not a good citizen and the sooner any community gets rid of him the better it will tje f ir tbe people of that com munity.—Brinkley Globe. That’s rightmo trait is more contemp tible than that of neglecting to discharge an honest debt Nothing 1 ses a rnaii the respect of honeot men quicker than a maifest disposition to enoid payment of bis just obligations. He who makes promises easily and breaks them the same way. is no bet tor than a thief or other petty crimi nal. Theue seems to be no doubt that the cotton crop is badly damaged by drouth, and that the crop is short. The pace is advancing, and we would not be surpr ; J to fir. i cotton selling at 10 cents within a few weeks. At any rate it is not judicious to market more than is required to discharge debts already contracted and supply pres et necessities, and the farmers should be able to handle the situation to their advantage. The following from the New Orleans Picayune is sensible and to the point, and should be care fully remembered: “Should they at tempt to market tbe entire crop in a few months they will compel a decline, but should thev market their yields judiciously, so as to prevent over crowding the market, they will be able to compel a satisfactory level of values. Friday the cotton market again ad vanced sharply, contracts improved twenty points and spot cotton advanc ing to seven and three eights cents for middling. Tbe advance as far as con tracts are concerned, was equivalent to $1 per bale, and tbe advance since the beginning of the recent upward apurt has amounted to fully t4 per bale. Cotton has now improved since the 1st of last March, when th** price for middliug was about five cents, as much as two and three eights cents per pound, which is equivalent to neatly 312 a bale. Should this advance be maintained during the period when cotton is being marketed, it will mean a good profit for the Southern cotton producer, particularly as cotton has been grown at small expense this season.” The Arkansas Democrat thinks there are too many saloons in that city and every other city where the sale of liquor is permitted, and that if instead of licensing them the privileges were sold to the highest bidder, and the iiumlier of saloons limited, there would be an improvement in the class of drinking resorts and they would be easier regulated. This is a very good suggestion, and one that oould be read »ly put in practice.—llot Springe Sen tinel. The plan of limiting the number of saloons meets with a warm endorse ment in nearly every towu in the state where liquor is soid. The saloon keep eis themselves admit that the business is made profitless by the large number ol persons who eugap-e in it. The big breweries and wholesoie liquor houses set up cheap resorts in many towns and cities where they sell some of the meanest stuff ever palmed off on the IMihlic. Under the present law a man with two or three hundred dollars capital can engage in the saloon busi ness. lie does so, and coining into competition with a dealer who has thousands invested, finds it absolutely necessary to cheat his patrons and cater to the worst classes. Limit the number of saloons, sell the privileges to the highest bidder, and the cheap saloon keeper will be forced to quit- It will be to the advantage of everv town and community to drive them out of the business. —Arkansas Democrat. High license, it seems to us, is a bet ter plan of limiting the saloon privilege. I I - ■ * A aa!e of privilege to tbe highest bid- j der woo'd result In all sort* of wran- j get. It would rot be just or equit-1 able to take fldtid from tbe first bidder j and afterwards sell Abe same pxiri-; .eg* to a dozer? others for half that sum. There :s also objection to tbe idea of limiting the number of saloon s. Xo matter to what ertfot. or tbat tbe “•toff should be regelated." it smacks of Infringement upon American liber ties to aay toat if 10 men are engaged ir: a profitable bustness, an eleventh «ba!I not be permitted to do likewise. If tbe authorities will place tbe license at oot less than $1000 for city, not less than flOOO for county and not less than ! 1500 for state and federal, we think' the number of cheap saloons will thin ’ out. The T>4e> regTels to n- te that sev eral merchants in town have been compelled to import a lot of cabbage and onions. The importation of two r articles of produce which grow here to such perfection, luxuriant size and di.e Savor. thus early in the season is not only ridiciloos, but ruinous.

At one of bis services last week Rev. Kilgore spoke of encouraging the preacher and the duties of the flock. He stated that a good way to demon strate youriappreciation of your pas tor, is by pound parties, donations. Ac. Not because of their intrinsic value, but to develope the principle. Next day the pastors of two churches in town received a dozen chickens each and one a load of hay. This is quick response and the preacher appreciated it. Rev. Kilgore complimented the people of our city on their prompt catchonitiveness We are ail prone to neglect Use little aindnesses of life, and yet life is made up of little things. We need not be afraid to compliment the preacher or the editor or any other poor soul who labors for the public welfare, thinking to give them the big head. They are just like other folks.
