UNREASONABLE COTTON BOOSTING DAN
GEROUS.
The proposal of President Wanamaker of the *
American Cotton Association that 2,000,000 bales
, ... ,
of cotton be retired from the market until such
time as "a profitable price" for cotton be estab
lished, will likely meet with little favor outside
*
*
*
the circles of a faction among the cotton growers
that appears not to know when enough of any
thing is enough.
*
With spot cotton at 42 to 43 cents cents per
pound, middling basis, the highest record since *
the war between the states, and with a constantly *
rising market resulting from the increasing de- ; *
mand for cotton for Europe, it seems rather hard j *
to justify a programme of deliberately withdraw- #
ing 2,000,000 bales, or about one-fifth of the pres- *
ent remarkably small crop, from the market, as an
artificial means of stimulating the market.
The demand for cotton is pressing all over the
world. Just as much cotton will be taken as can
j Qe ? under the financial conditions
va iling- abroad. The demand is pushing cotton
p r j ces steadily upward,

It is high;
ing masses at home, as well as abroad,
time we were giving more attention to the con-;
sumer of cotton goods.
There is a general cry m this country for a re- i
duction in the cost of living. Strikers and all j
those who are deliberately curtailing production;
are coming in for widespread condemnation. Morel
production is the national demand. For cotton
farmers to hold off the market large supplies of
cotton for the deliberate purpose of forcing high
r prices would be of a piece with the strike of
the miners and the threatened strike of the rail
road men.
There would be no difference in principle, or
in the result, for force would be the weapon in *
both instances to boost further the cost instances *
to boost further the cost of living to the average *
consumer. *
*
The cotton growing interests have already
alienated much sympathy from them by their de-
mands in the past. Most of those demands were
just, in the opinion of the Post, and in most in-;~
-dances the growers have been falsely accused, ! *
and they have been discriminated against fre- *
quently. The prejudice of the noncotton growing *
sections against the cotton growers has beeir 14
founded on misinformation, and it has been culti- *

: *
i ™ted chiefly by sectional politicians.
But the cotton growers will be making a mis-, *
take and putting themselves into a very undesir- **
a ^le class if they resort to artificial means to
raise cotton prices now, when the country faces a
critical situation because of abnormal prices for
necessities ,and when cotton is already at record;
breaking levels.—Houston Post.
The cotton crop is tremendously short. If the
price of the cotton that will be harvested were ;
distributed among those also who made a flat fail- ;
the profit would not be great. In some re
gions there will not be a bale of cotton to 10 acres. |
In other regions crops after being planted were
abandoned
But there is no use of hoarding as a stimulus ;
to price. Cotton is as high as it should be. To
put it higher by artificial means would simply be

to put a toll on the consumer.
Any suggestion of withdrawing cotton from

the market when there is now barely enough to
go around is so selfish that it would put the man

and others who want to squeeze the people to
necessities.—Memphis !

HEALTHY, ROBUST

Good Health Creates an Attractive
Magnetic Personality And Wins
Admiration
Healthy People Are Happiest
Pepto-Mangan Has Put Thousands
Into The Healthy, Full-Blooded
Class
j
How the red-blooded, energetic, and
attractive man or wom^n is envied by
those who feel that it will always be !
their unfortunate lot to be thin, pale
and weak-bodied!
And yet why continue to envy men
and women who possess a vigorous,
healthy physical condition and an at
tractive, magnetic personality? Poor
health and lack of vitality are often
merely the result of impoverished
blood.
Gude s Pepto-Mangan is for people
whose bodies suffer from lack of prop
er blood nourishment. Pepto-Mangan
enriches the blood and increases the
number of healthy red blooded cells,
which are so necessary to carry the
proper nourishment, vigorousness, and
strength to every part of the body.
Physicians introduced Gude's Pep
to-Mangan to the public because they
knew that it contained the very pro
perties that are so sorely needed to
build up thin, watery blood. For your
convenience Pepto-Mangan is prepar
ed in two forms, liquid and tablet.
Both contain exactly the same medi
cine value.
Insist on the genuine Pepto-Man
gan. To be sure you are buying the
genuine Pepto-Mangan, ask your
druggist for "Gudd s". And be sure
the name "Gude's"
is on the pack
