J E Bright and Clayton & Clayton. Sol, Complta, Cotton Acereage Reduction. > The recent convention at New Orlear s I undoubtedly has given an impetus to Ihe reduction movement, but a number < f intarfcring possibilities are pointed rut. It is suggested that if the price of u. - tpn remains at 7 or 8 cents at ; lant g time there v ill be a decrease in a 'reage, bit that at an advance to 10 ..outs or higher will mean no decrease, if, ineeed, there he not an increase, for, as or e writer safely notes, many a farmer is like the mercury in a themometer, and goes up and down with the price of cotton. While in some quarters the large farmers have come to the conclu sion that their only salvation lies-.in re duction, in others the men who sold early and at good price, not infrequent ly the renters and small farmers, will naturally not decrease to the extent of those with cotton still on hand. It is thought, too, that it will be difficult to secure concerted action, as many a man may argue that as his ueighbors are going to reduce he will pitch a larger crop aud gain just so much more advan tage in high prices. But the spirit dominant, especially in Georgia, is such that there is alreacy talk of employing practical men in each militia district to inspect the planting and report anyone failing to carry out reduction agreement. Whatever reduction takes place will he due to the organized movement in part, to mutual agreement on an indepedent basis, and especially to the hard fact of low prices, a most effective argument upon the mind of men who are described as seeing that they are placed “at the mercy and behest of trained unscrupu lous manipulators who sow not, neither do they spin, yet reap a bounteous harvest alike in season of drought and in season of rain.” Southern Farm Magazaine. -— In Memoriam J. C. Conlee, the subject of this sketch, was born Aug. 28th. 1879., and came to his untimely death, Jan. 12th, 1905, by the accidental dischargo of a double-barrel shotgun. Deceased was the son of J. A. and Bettie Conlee; he loaves a father, mother, four broth ers, three sisters and a young wife to mourn his death. He joined the Meth odist church two or three years ago, and had lived a consistent Christian life since. He was loyal to his church and to his fellowman; he was an obedi ent and dutiful son, a kind brother and loving and faithful husband. He was loved and respected by all who knew him. He lived about three hours after footing himself, and expressed not only a willingness but a readiness to die. He told those in attendance to “let him die and go to heaven.” What a blessed thought to know that our loved ones are waiting and watch ing for us on the other shore. To those who are so sadly bereft we can only say “weep not as those who have no hope. ” Strive to live as he has lived, and some time in the future you can go to him. “Let us be patient! these severe afflic tions.
