A. Thompkins in Man fa. Record. Charlotte, N. C, Dec. 3, 14. For more than five years past I have written that the price of cotton must come to five cents. In order to main tain in the future that control of the production of cotton that it haa main tained in the past, the South must make cotton in large and Increasing quantities, anc it must be made cheap In Egypt, India, South America and other parts of the world there are large areas of land suitable for cotton-planting. It the South does not produce cheap cotton in large quantities those countries will become competitors, as the farmers of South America have become competitors in the production of wheat &nd cattle. All revolutions produce some distress. The old plan tation system is dying. Both the white and black people who still live on the old plantations are becoming poorer each year. The colored man as a ten ant is a failure. In the cottonseed-oil milla, and In many other occupations where some white man is always in immediate charge, the colored man makes a good laborer. In many cases they make good bosses. In the country a few are good farmers. But the great bulk of colored people who are lelt in the country on the old plantations are shiftless, and are not really making their own livings. As a consequence, there is considerable poverty in the country. But on the other hand, there are many instances of farmers who are conducting farms on their own accounts nl who are doing well. This condition Mrs. Spencer in Ntici and Obs'rvr. A "pronouncing bee" was held lately in pome educational club in New York, and it occurred to me that It would le good as a permanent institution every where. How mrny of us pronounce our mother tongue correctly? I con fess my own ignorance and shortcom ings on the spot. Take the word "sine cure" for instance, is the "i" pronounc ed long or short? How many people pronounce "exquisite" proierly? I have heard young lady graduates of our bremost North Carolina schools place tremendous emphasis on the second yllable, which really is enough to set all one's teeth on edge. How about 'specialty," and by the way, I was raised to spell that word "speciality" and so I find it spelt in general good English literature. The second"i" has been dropped, 1 find, and a consequent change made in accent. w, A. DUNN, A T T 0 R N ' Y-A T-L A W Scotland Nf.ck, N. C.
