Last Saturday night at the
mass meeting G. C. Long, Earl
Cobb and M. S. Lusby were ap
pointed a committee to solicit
funds to be used to aid the lo
cal officers in enforcing the laws
against the sale of intoxicating

committee, Mr. Long having for
years been one of the leading
spirits in every move for bet
tering the morals of the commu

manager of affairs. Mr. Lusby
is an earnest worker, though
very young in the cause.

would have indignantly sought an

no thought of luncheon or dinner.
These men were were willing to make
the sacrifice which success demands.
There Is no dearth of opening for

Kussia Seeks To Take Away Our
The efforts; of Great lirltnln, France
and Germany to develop supplies of
cotton grain and cattle in Africa, In
Mexico and iu South America are be
ing supplemented, it ueeius, by a sys
tematic plan to greatly increase the
British supply of meat from Kussia.
It is announced therefore that this
other competitor in the F.ast is des
tined soon to come into prominence
as a chief factor In the British meat
supply. Tlie success of America and
other countries In supplying Kuro
pean markets Is not without its cf
effect. Iviissia has observed the
growth of our export meat business
anil now seems to be coming Into
tlie market for a portion of tlie trade.
To this end the Russians have
equipped a line of ocean steamers to
ply lietwecn the home country and
Kngland, so that fresh meat may lie
lauded on British soil within three
days after slaughtering:. The com
parative nearness and tlie eousciucut
reduced cost would indicate that
fume time Uu.-sia will be a funuldiu-
The most Interesting-facts connect
ed with this new movement is tlie
fact that leading Kuglishnien are
said to be at the bottom of it, and it
and It Is given out that It is but the
beginning of a change from present
methods of securing a meat supply
from the United States. Kussia
trades freely with Kngland and tlie
latter trades freely with Ilussla
Manufactures may lie exchanged for
supplies of grain and meat. This Is
the design, as it is set forth, and of
course Americans must consider
such movements in time to lose some
of their very best customers.
It Is explained that, during recent
years Itussbins, and particularly the
wealthier classes, have been pa, big
some attention to the mat ter of Im
proving 1 1 u livestock of the country
by tlie Importation of pure-bred an
imals from abroad, (ireat Britain
lias naturally been called upon to
meet this demand to a, considerable
extent. The stock Imported has not
been of the high test, ipiality and yet
it seems that there Is a growing
element in Kussia that appreciates
the need of Improvement in order to
produce a higher grade of meat, and
that a lioiid lias been formed by
which the two countries are to be
brought closer together iu matters
of trade, which matters have been so
long hindered by International
grudges of vast dimensions. If the
present movement scout In ue to grow
it may not be long before Americans
are brought to feel keenly the need
of courting customers and bidding
for trade In the good old way. Dal
