Subscription Now Due
We desire to say to all who
have not already come forward
and settled their account for sub
scription that we would take it
as a special favor if they will let
us hear from them promptly.
We have not sent out statements
to our subscribers in several years
and we find many past due sub
scriptions on our books. We
take it that our friends not get
ting statements decided that we
are not in need of what is due us
and let the matter drag on. We
have concluded that it will be
better to inaugurate the state
ment policy of letting those in
arrears know how they stand on
our books and will mail our state
ments as soon as we can get
thpm nrenared. All of our
friends will please understand
that this is an urgent appeal; we
have carried the heaviest delin
quent list * ever before carried
through the summer and we need
the amounts due us. We have
made no appeal of this character
for a year now and like the mer
chant, the farmer, the physician
and all other classes of business
people at this season of the year,

Business Opening Up.
The appearance of frost in the
northern part of Mississippi last
week brought a great relief
to the business world which
has been greatly handicapped by
the strict quarantine regulations
existing at nearly every town
in the state. Travel was almost
impossible and when bent on
business or pleasure it was a
question whether you would
land at your destination or be
sent to some detention camp to
be fumigated for a week and then
start out to be turned back again.
Frost brought a better spirit and
most of the towns have relaxed
their rigid regulations which
have caused so much inconven
ience and worry to the trav
With the raising of the quar
antine business will revive and
that activity which usually char
acterizes southern towns will
be resumed. Another drawback
however that now confronts us
is the continued decline of cotton.
The bears are still in the saddle
and are having things thnir
own way. The farmers, how
ever, are lending them but little
aid in keeping the price down.
Picking goes on with every min
ute put in to get the crop out
before the bad weather sets in.
The great rush to get the crop
ginned and on the market is not
in evidence as it was when the
price satisfactory and the gi li
ners are better enabled to keep
up with the ginning. How long
the crop wdll be kept off the
market, is in our opinion, a mere
matter of price. The farmers
seem determined to have at least
ten cents for the crop and some
vill hold for eleven cents, and
ligher prices still. With this
state of affairs the early fall
trade will not be as heavy as.
isual but the people will buy what
they need later on and will have
ilenty of money with which to
lay their bills.
The Cotton Plant.
What a royal plant it is! The
world waits in attendance on its
growth. The shower, that falls
whispering on its leaves is heard
around the earth. The sun that
shines on it is tempered by the
prayers of all people. The frost
that chills, and the dew that
descends from the stars is noted
and the trespass of a little worm
an its green leaf is more to Eng
land than the advance of the
Russian army on her Asian out
posts. It is gold from the in
stant it puts forth its tiny shoot.
Its fiber is current in every bank,
and when loosing its fleece to the
sun it floats a sunny banner that
glorifies the field of humble far
mer; that man is marshalled un
der a flag that will compel the
allegiance of the world, and
wring a subsidy from every na
tion on earth. It is the heritage
chat God gave to this people for
ever as their own, when lie
arched our skies, established
)ur mountains, girt us about
with the ocean, loosed the breezes
cempered the sunshine and meas
ared the rain. Ours and our
children’s forever. As princely
i talent as ever came from K is
land to mortal stewardship—

upon the yellow fever situation as
it is understood by the negroes.
A few days ago he happened to

An Identity of Interest.
That was a bold stroke of Sully
and Hoadley in taking up prac
tically all of the cotton on the
New York market amounting to
13's000 bales to prevent the
be- rs using it to hammer the
me. *ket. If they are able to
ho d it and the market is not
flooded by the farmers in an
eagerness to sell, prices are sure
to strengthen and the speculators
will reap a handsome profit. It
is the biggest plunge since Brown

was predicated upon the assur
