heavens opened Monday night and the
water followed the example of the
real estate and went on a boom.

and quite a lot of real estate took a
tumble. Wednesday morning the
whole valley was covered with three
or four Inches of snow, but too wet
for good sleighing. The moisture
was needed, but comes too late to ben

course they think It makes water sure
for next spring.

having lots of trouble on each side of

began. From what I saw on my for

COTTON GROWERS' DV.XTAGE.
The Rears and Spinner Have Lost
New York, Jan. 24. For the first
time in history the American cotton
growers are In the fortunate position
to dictate to the spinners and cotton
goods manufacturers. The spinners
and manufacturers, realizing this fact,
decided to ask the cotton producers
to meot them In conference for the
purpose of arranging some comprom
ise regarding the price of cotton. In
accordance with this decision repre

tend the conference, which may last
The situation Is rather peculiar.
When the Southern Cotton association
met in September of last year, it
fixed the minimum price at 11 cents
pound. The bears .and spinners.
taking advantage of the Immediate
needs of the southern farmers and
cotton planters, drove the price down
to 0.50. As It Is now, even If the rest
of the crop should be sold nt 15 cents
the general average would not be fair
to the farmers. But. now, the cotton
growers hnve the bears and spinners
at their mercy.
The spot situation is absolutely
dominated by the men who produced
the cotton and this In the face of the
fact that at tho beginning of the sea
son they were confronted with the
prospect of a 1 4.000, 000-bnle crop.
The spinners are fnaklng more now
on 12-cent cotton than they ever did
on 5-cent cotton. The mills would
not suffer. It Is said, even if the bal
ance of the crop should be sold at 15
cents a pound. There were 6, 000. 000
new spindles In the south last year.

The new church was started In

pastor. In 1904 Bev. A. Diomedl, S.

Who Gets the Most

Not the wealthiest, not the most learned, nor the idler but the

trite, but not trivial.
Every man should guard his health as his most valuable posses
