By way of improving our busi neas streets, put up an elactric ln. We all want to see factories, and more factories, come to Green wood. The Easter bonnet is over but never fear, there's always something to follow. Among the things Leflore County needs badly is a strong county fair Maociation. Not many weeks before the rah-rah boys and girls will start ther vacations. Glean up those premises, and keep them clean, so we can have the healthiest summer in our history.

Although the lut cotton crop wm approximately 12,000,000 bales, it bu utterly failed to provide the supplies which the world's mills hare ^required, except at prices which have made it impossible for msny of these mills, particularly those in the United States, to oper ale at a profit. It bu been an ex ceedingly profitable crop to the farmers of the South, and u spin ners have reaped big profits in times past by reason of the low price at which raw cotton hu been sold, they have no reasonable cause for complaint that the tables have been turned ahd the producers have made the profit instead of the mill owner * Nevertheless, the prosperity of the cotton manufacturing industry is essential to the well-being of the cotton farmer. It would, therefore, be unwise and unfortunate if the raising of short crops should be come chronic. The prosperity of the mills means prosperity for the frrmers in the long run. It would, therefore be unwise, as well as un desireable, for the producer of cot ton to deliberately co-operate to pro duce a short crop each year on the theory that they would profit as greatly by a short crop as by a large one, or, as has been the case during the past season, reap even greater profits out of a comparative ly short crop than they have out of larger yields in former years. The short crops of recent years have not been the result of concert ___» rr t »it ment of acreage Unfavorable weather and the boll weevil have been mainly responsible for the short yields, and not curtailment of acreage. It is certain that farmers are determined to plant a large acreage this .nrinn «„H nothin,, n. acreage 1010 spring, and nothin# Ol their part will be done to stand in the way of a large yield. It is un derstood that a largely increased acreage will be planted and only .„.b » „„»Ob. cold, will be permitted to prevent. Kven a large acreage, however, does not insure a large yield, as past ex perience has abundantly demon .tr.ted Tl.A 4 • ., Strated. Bad weather during the spring and summer may lead to a disappointing crop from a greatly It increased acreage. It is to be hoped, howsver, that the present season will prove in every way propitious, and the in creased acreage which the farmers seem determined to plant will be permitted to produce a full yield. A large crop this year is actually and seriou ly needed to restore normal conditions in the cotton trade of the world, particularly the manufacturing branch, and the fail ure of the high hopes now enter tained would prove a veritable mis fortune. It is, therefore, to be hoped that the fears now entertain ed that there may be too much rain for the good of the crop will not be realised. of aad bo line Don't you think its high time we were organizings county fair.

There is danger that the high it price of cotton will cause too much cotton and too little corn to be plant ed. We cannot change the law of supply and demand. Too much cotton will surely produce low prie es. The reason the price has been good is that there ha» been a mod orate supply, There is a he avy responsibility on our credit merchants and bankers to in see that their customers do not neg lect the planting of ample corn. Our credit system allows the merchant to dictate the crops planted, and if he is a true friend to his customers, he will advise that ample corn be planted. No country can prosper that is dependent on another section for everything. What does it profit us to handle money, if little or none stays with us Debt is not a good condition for a people. Thrift makes better people and a better country. To be thrifty the South muBt give attention to corn. AH must admit that if our aver age yield in the South was thirty bushels per acre, every year, we would have ample corn, Let the influence of everyone be used toward trjing to get for 1911 a yield that will average thirty bueh els to the acre, Corn, in abundant quantities means food for man and bessl; it means better roads, better schools, more people and better farmers. The nexttwenty days will show* »it , „ J where we stand. Be sure to plant for plenty of corn.—-Commercial Ap peal. —.. . — Resolutions of Resnert t KeS0,Ul,0nS 0t KeS P Ctt ' « Greenwood, Mise., April 22,1911. . . .. n _ T * * Orceuwood , > woodmen of the World Camp No ' 500 Wher *™' 0od ' uat Almighty Father, » 'JwS...
