Frank Carpenter, globe trotter newspaper cor respondent. writes about the claim of British of ficial*, that Africa will compete with our own Cotton Belt in producing cotton. Mr. Carpenter say* that the total amount of cotton now raised In Egypt and the Soudan Is only a few million pounds sad only about 4,000 bales were exported last year. He says there are vast areas of good cotton land In the Soudan, but that the land would have to be Irrigated, but that It takes capi tal to establish Irrigation works and that Egypt is strongly opposed to any further diversion of water from the Nile The lower country needs more wafer than the river brings now. Progress in the cultivation of coiron i» mnd.. ho* n <. and modern methods are adopted In but few places. From Mr. Carpenter s statement It would *eem that the day may come when Africa will compete with our Cotton Belt In producing the staple, but 1* not likely to do so before the world's demand is greatly Increased.

Fla., of the Columbia County Farmers’ Union and members of the Cotton Association, a resolution was passed for sending a full delegation to Val dosta. to form a separate sea island move ment.

If more wealth is necessary to you. for pur poses not your own. use your left-hand to acquire it. but keep your right hand for your proper work : in life. If you employ both arms In that game, you will be In danger of stooping; in danger also of losing your soul. The chief cure for the de pressions. despondencies, and doubts of youth, which have their roots in the egotism of human nature, is to lose yourself in some issue not your own.

It Is un just. The mere fact that n man or a corporation has money, secured, it may be. by hard work and good business methods, should not be held to be wrongful. Hut when a corporation de liberately stifles competition so as to retard the i development of enterprises that the public needs, the public has the right to act as Its own Intor . »ts demand Heading agricultural papers not suited to your section may do you ten times as much harm us good, and ultimately dlsguat you with all agricul tural papers.
