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
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
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.

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.
Pay the preacher well, and our word
for it the preaching will be more in
