A meeting of the long staple cot ton growers of Mecklenburg County was held in the court-house in Char lotte Saturday. Many farmers were present to. discuss the cotton situa tion and the advisability of the pro duction of long staple cotton of the South. The Charlotte Observer gives the following report of the meeting: "Mr. R. O. Alexander, a well- known cotton merchant and a man posted on the cotton conditions and situations throughout the United States made a helpful address. Mr. Alexander stated that the long staple cotton in this latitude is artificial, as its home is in the low, flat and allu vial sectons of Georgia, Florida and the Mississippi Delta sections of the country. In order to raise the long staple successfully in Mecklenburg, the farmers must exercise the great est intelligence.

"Becker told me, he said, "that he wanted Rosenthal murdered, shot, croaked or dynamited. At his bid ding I got the gunmen to kill Rosen thal. I hid after the murder. .

"I'd rather go to jail, Judge, than to face that wo man and tell her that I've wrecked her car," exclaimed Ernest Stewman in police court yesterday. The young man earnestly begged Judge Adams for a jail sentence, and left the city when it was not imposed. "I tell you, I've seen her whip two men, judge," he continued, "and I don't propose to let her get at me." The young fellow has been driving for Mrs. Bonnie Henderson for some time, and early yesterday morning steered the machine into a pole, wrecking it. He came straight to po lice headquarters and wanted the captain to detail two policemen to ac company him while he told Mrs. Hen derson of the wreck. During the con versation it developed that the young man was driving without a license, and on this charge he was arrested. He told Judge Adams yesterday morning that if he could not go to jail for ten or fifteen days that he would leave town, as he did not pro pose to take chances of meeting up with Mrs. Henderson. To Name a Spite Ticket. Asheville, N. C, Oct .12. Basing their hopes on the supposed drawing power of Hon. Thomas Settle and his platform, the Republicans of Bun combe County are quietly preparing to enter a county ticket in the field for the November elections, with a full ticket of county candidates pledged to President Taft, Mr. Set tle, et al. While unofficially admit ting that the ticket would have no possible chance of election, Republi can leaders have quietly announced their intention of helping to beat the hybrid ticket recently nominated by the Moose faction. ? crops while they are making cotton is shown in the Government statis tics for the South, which gives North Carolina more cotton per acre than any other State in the cotton section. As the farmers have the intelligence, they can put it to use by raising the long staple cotton. "Mr. Alexander gave them to un derstand that no harum-scarum farm er can raise long staple cotton in this latitude. There are several main points which govern the successful growing of the long staple cotton here. One must carefully select his seed. To make a careful selection, one must go into the fields and select a healthful, well-matured stalk with splendid bolls to gather the seeds from. A farmer must not plant at random from any piles of so-called long staple cotton, but it must be se lected as above andveach year. He said that if this rule is not complied with the staple runs down, which means a waste of time and money, for there is no market for the short cotton of the long staple variety. "In order to obtain the best re sults, the cotton must be ginned slowly, for if it is rushed through the gin, the coton will be gin-cut. The gin-cut cotton loses a price premium. Long staple cotton should be always ginned dry. Cotton should be sun dried before ginning to obtain the best results in white cotton. The long staple should be picked care fully, so as not to get any of the short lengths in the pickings. The farmers were cautioned to pick for grade. There is little value attached to the low grades of cotton, especial ly in the long staple. The long sta ple mills do not want the short lengths and the mills for short cotton will not have the short lengths on account of their machinery not be ing adapted for it." . tnem.

Perched aloft on a platform behind Colonel Roosevelt, like a magnified! church choir, were young women, all! of them dressed in white wearing bandanas over the right shoulder. They are the "Jane Adams choir," and they sang to amuse the crowd until Colonel Roosevelt appeared. The front rows of chairs were oc cupied by women, who wore large red badges and carried corn poppers. The icocuLc ui me corn poppers was something of a mystery until Prof. Charles E. Merriam, chairman of the meeting, stepped to the edge of the platform and said: "Ladies, do your duty." Their duty was fo take a collection for the campaign fund.
