Mr. Vili-'U is writing of the work that I i - ii done by the Southern Cot tiil. Association. He makes two j,o-i;i- claims for it that it brought .;!, ;ni increased price for cotton 'I:,,: iiui; it caused a material reduc tion in t!i' cotton acreacre. He says t!.:it it "is wonderful the amount the V.vuit ion lias accomplished, with n i ..-iiiy. against the combined ef ,ir:. ,.' all the bear speculators with ,!:, ir wealth, influence and brains, to .,, .;!;, r with the little Smart Alecks Ihivnidioiit the country. The latter ;11v . ry fond of repeating that the ,r -ri.i price of cotton is due to bad v., ;,;';. !.

The holding was to bet ter ihe price of the present crop. Tii":- -h -us thev did much in this ihv. i ! i;et ndvice of the associ ation, h ays. was to reduce the a r a-. . "That has been a greater than the bears want to be !vi." he -ays, "and they are trying ' ;;.;t'.e ii appear that the rains are ,: ,h it ail, and this is where tin iih' - .seres of the clumtry get 'ii i ir v.oiv; of dicouragiiig the. ; ii iii d.

If once the politicians make up their mind to improve the public school system of a State they can do it as rapidly and as surely as they can improve its water supply or its pavements or any other of the es sential necessities of modern life. It is a great mistake to believe that be cause schools are in politics they are necessarilv governed by the same principles and along the same lines as some othqr appointive offices. All that the people have to do is to make up their minds that they want an in creasingly improving school system, and then let the conclusions be known, and the politicians will give them their desires just as soon and as quickly as they can.
