il TWO Thb Dprant Whbklt News FRIDAY, NOV. 17, 1922 as COTTON IN THE WAY TO 30 CENTS A POUND? Jump Of W.00 A Halo Follows Gin ning Kcport. From bulletin of SpntiRs &. Co., New York Ilrokcrs) Cotton contracts crossed 2(1 cent n thi' Now Yolk board following the publication of the government Cen sus Hun an reuort that S.lIW.h.W "bales had been ginned to the end of Oitoler this inihoating the irop this year ns less than 10.000,(100 bnles. Cotton has now advanced $:!() n bale inie our foiecnst five weeks nco that December eottnn would sell above 2' cents a pound: and thus far the market has fulfillul eveiy prediction we have entured sinie the early part of the ear when con tracts were selling at and under IS cents eery prediction, but one, that being that the staple will likely sell nt 30 cents before the net crop is in the making To the end of October Inst vear the ginnings weie reported as (5,(110,000 "bales, which, as it turned out, repie sented S3.U per cent of the ciop. On this percentage basis the current year's ciop would not quite reach to 10,000,000 bales. The report, to indi cate 10,000,000 bales as the crop, would hae had to show 8..T10.000 hales ginned to October 31. It falls 190,000 bales short of this and if the percentage of ginning may be consid ered the same this year as last the 1922 crop is indicated as just under "9,800.000 bales. This is not picas ant of contemplation by those who must make prices now on goods to be made up later on, of goods not yet spun from cotton not yet on hand, llcnce the rush to buy mill interests and by market traders who sought to profit from anticipating the purchas es for trade requirements. Shorts also sought cover, their haste becom ing frantic ns the market soared. .MANURE BOOSTS COTTON YIELD How barnyard manure and acid phosphate increases the yield of cot ton is shown by reports of experi ments of the last several years on the farm of the Oklahoma Agricul tural Experiment Station at Still water. Check plots, the report says, gave 450 pounds of cotton per acre. The plots receiving barnyard manure gave 580 pounds per acre. The plots re ceiving barnyard manure and acid phosphate produced G90 pounds per racre. The increase due to the use of acid phosphate was 11 pounds per acre, the value of which at the cur Tcnt price would be $0.87. The cost of the acid phosphate used was $2.50 per acre, leaving $4.37 profit per acre from the use of acid phosphate. The barnyard manure was applied at the Tate of 0 tons per acre every four years, giving an average of 1.5 tons per acre per year. Calculation shows that with cotton at the present price the barnyard manure was worth $5.41 per ton. SMAII.l'OX HEOINNINO.

In some communities vaccination has been mnelo compulsory, and with in a comparatively short time where this is the case, smallpox has dibap pcaicd. The danger from vaccination is so slight that it can almost be termed non-existant. Stories of vaccination causing death, the loss of an arm and other serious results, are almost without exception, unfounded. In some sections of Oklahoma theie were serious out-breaks of smallpox last 'winter. It was neces sary for the State Board of Health to take drastic measures to control these epidemics and to protect the rest of the state. This involved con siderable expense, in addition business in the nffected districts was serious ly injured, finally, there was a large amount of sickness and suffering and numerous deaths, all of which was absolutely unnecessary, and could have been prevented if the right pro caution, which is vaccination, had been taken. Therefore, to avoid a like condition the coming winter, let everybody who has not been vaccinated in recent years, do so, as soon as possible. Get it done by a competent physician and the resulting irritation amounts to very little and you are immune for years from the ravages of this disease. THE U. S. POSTOFFICE IS WORLD'S BIGGEST BUSINESS of the brain. In his pockets were found letters from Boley, Oklahoma, addressed to Saul Johnson, two decks of cards and a few other items, but no money. Negroes of Colbert learning of the death of Johnson took the body to colbett and gave it burial, after rela tives had failed to claim thc body. Earlier that evening thc dead negro and another negro were seen starting to walk east on the Frisco tracks, bound for Hugo. It is supposed that they waited at the crossing ncar Risner'.s four miles east of town for the freight, that the other negro caught the train and went on and that Johnson missed as he jumped and .suffered a broken neck. EUROPE CAN PAY, SAYS HOOVER CRIPPLED ROY TAKEN TO SHR1NHRS' HOSPITAL Clarence Iirson, aged 11. who has deformed foot as a result of infan tile paraljsis from which he suf fered when two ycais old, is to have a chance to have a strong normal loot like other bovs, for he was this week c nt by local friends to thc fa mous Shiineis children's hospital at Shrevepoit, where they specialize on operations to cuic such deformities, making no charge for the work. Hen ry Spring of Durant funnel ly lived at Shieveport and is acquainted with the hosnital heads. He sent photos of the hoys deformity and was nil vised that the boy would be aicepted as a patient and that in the opinion of the authorities an operation would cure the defoimity. Henrv inteiested other local fellows in the little chap's ase, with the icsult that he and his father weie sent to Shievepuit this week and the lad is elated nt the prospect of having a good foot when he returns. This hospital is one of several maintained in the United States by the Shriners. No chaige is made for treatment or operations, the patient only being obliged to defray his tinv clling expenses and furnish his cloth ing. This, little Claii'iicc was unable to do. but Ileniy Spring, laid the case "before other men of the city who intei estid them -.elves in the boy and are seeing to it that he has his hnnce. The United States postal service is thc biggest business in the world, Postmaster General Hubert Work said in a recent address. 'The post office department spends $GOO,000,000 a year," Mr. Work ad ded. "It has an annual turn-over of $3,000,000. It nays into the treasury $ 185,000,000 n year and it practically is self-supporting. During the year more than 12,000,000,000 letters are handled. Six and one-half million families are served every day by the rural mail carriers. Thc carriers be foic sunset everyday travel 1,170,000 miles. The postoffide department eveiy j. ear uses enough twine to en ciide the earth thirty-two times. It has ruu,uuu depositors in postal sav ings more than any banking insti tution in the country. "The department is the biggest ex- piess compnny in the world. It nan dies 2,500,000,000 packages each voar." Secretary Hoover gives the New- York bakers who deal in European bonds and talk cancellation of the foreign debt, something to think about, when he says cancellation not only would not help Europe's situa tion one whit but might be harmful; that it is time for European powers to realize they can't afford too big armies and too big navies. Hoover says about G per cent of thc debt is uncollectable and will have to be written off. The w.st he figures can be paid, principle and interest, at the rate of 350 million a year by 19 nations. It would involve from 2 to 12 per cent only of the national in come in each of the countries and be quite within their capacity. For instance, the amounts spent abroad by American tourists, the remittances of imigrants, investments abroad, etc., amounts in all. to three times the interest on the famous ll-billion-dol- lar debt.
