A well-known citizen of Monroe bon kIi some cotton for 34 cents yes terday which he will hold for higher prices. believiiiK that it will no to cents in a few wetks. Another busi ness man was heard to remark: "If I was a gambling man I'd buy up all the cotton I could get at "4 cents a pound. The staple is going to forty cents a pound in a short while, and every mini who sells at prevailing prices does so at a big loss." If the average farmer, who raises cotton, felt this way about it, Wannatnaker's dream of 50-cent cotton would soon be realized. A local bank president is also quoted as saying that farm ers of Union county will lose $2. ('. (.00 by disposing of their cotton tin ker thirty-five cents. Whether you agree with these sentiments or not. come to Monroe Saturday, Oct. IS, and hear the question threshed out. One likes to hear of forty and fifty cent cotton even if he never hopes to get that much for what he raises. nday. Oct. 27, is the day for ev me to turn their clocks back an hou.-. The daylight savings law dies a natural death on that day. and Deacon Doster's confidence in "oli time" will be justified. The Deacon refused to turn his clock hands up an hour when the law went into effect two years ago. and has been an hour behind other folks' time ever since. n That's how- the world overcomes; 1 the prosperous man.

One must have his i help for the ficht. But God cannot help one who does not believe that j He can. t What can our prosperous man who ; has los' faith do? If he would live rei.lly he must get it bark. He must realize first of ail that thtte are , things hither and better than the I things ho has spent his days working for. Then he must wish for the faith really, truly he must long for it its , ...A the dearest wish of his heart. '-'Xt! I M in wrote laai i.tim is me ii of Hunts h.oped for. There is help there. The man that longs for faith as eagerly as ever he longtd for hi wealth, and that is willing to saen iice as much for it as he did sacrifiet for his money, even to the point o! giving up part or the whole of his worldly means for the sake of th faith, is going to go' i'. Something will be show u him thai will ma U him h-li-vc with heart, mind, and soul. That process euils for will power, and the more material-tutml ed the man is. the greater will-power will he required. The evidence upon which to fasten his taith is abundant.

The world seems to need a lot of overcoming these days. And the folks Of this day anil generation are In a serious danger in the midst of all the high prices. And Unit does not mean the salaried folks only. The produc ers, in the midst of even their tre mendous prosperity and success, are in worse danger than the poor con sumer struggling not to burst his wage. The danger is so serious be cause it Is linked up with the well being of the well off. so to speak. It is often said that it takes a man of exceptionally strong fibre to stand prosperity. Jeshuriin does some times wax fat and kick. And it Is un doubtedly a fact t hat great material prosperity doesVarry with it irrave danger to one's spiritual well-being.; Now. whnt can a toi-prosperou I f - man do-' It Is evident that the dan- TaaH ClPPiTl SlOCK. per consist In the world getting the VJUUU i-ICUU diUV,IV. masterv over him.
