Every year cottou farmers wor*
ry themselves almost to death
over the matter of seed selection,
excess of moisture, drought, “fir
ing,” army worms, rust, boll
weevil and a dozen other ills to
which the growing plant is sub
ject. But when the staple has
come to maturity and been har
vested (in a more or less wasteful
manner,) what do they do?" This
is the question propounded and
answered by the Savannah News.
Beginning with the picking
and running through to the final
marketing there is a tiemendous
amount of waste, roughly esti
mated to amount to more than a
million dollars oer crop, The
"clean” picker is the exception
rather than the rule. The aver
age picker, hustling to get out
the greatest number of pounds
in the shortest space of time,
leaves many ripe bolls unplncked
to tako the weather and drops
other open cotton upon the
ground to be trampled and lost
through careless handling. In
ginning modern methods have
made the losses inconsiderable,
which is also true of baling. But
after the fleece is baled then fol
low the greatest and most inex
disable losses of all. The baling
is not carefully done, in such
manner as to preserve the con
tents of the package in the best
possible condition. There is no
'standard or uniformity in size of
proas boxes, no standard of den
sity of compression and no stand
ard rule for covering that will
koep out moisture and dirt and
prevent what may for conveu

badly haled and rolled out into
the open to take the sun and rain
as they come. It is not an un
common sight to see hundreds
even thousands, of bales of cot
ton “parked” in the open air at
a shipping point, the bales ragged
and unkempt, and without pro
tection against water or fire, and
the same sort of thing is true on
a great many farms. The pro
ducer scorns to labor under the
impression that his duty to this
crop end* when he has got it
picked and haled. He will see
the bales get soaked in a heavy
rain without “turning a hair,”
or he will see the bales get rolled
through a mud-puddle without
entering a Jprotest. But if he

crop he would have a nervous

to suppose that spinners will pay

is clean and dry. It is against
the very common sense of things
that, they should do so. ^Iudian

A DANOEROUS HABIT.
The use of a common drinking
cap upon public occasions is prop
erly condemned by science. Un
der an article headed “Death in
Drinking Cups,” the Technical
“A cup which had been in use
nine days in a school was a clear
thin glass. It was broken into a
number of pieces and properly
stained for examination with a
microscope magnifying 1,000 di
ameters. The human cells scrap
ed from the lips of the drinkers
were so numerous on the ‘upper
third of the glass that the head
of a pin could not be placed any
where without touching several
of these bits of skin. The saliva,
by running down on the inside of
the glass, had carried cells and
bacteria to the bottom. Here,
however, they were less than one-
third as abundant as at the brim.
By counting the cells present on
fifty different areas on the glass
as seen under the microscope, it
was estimated that the cup con
tained over 20,000 human cells
or hits of dead skin. As many
as 150 germs were :een clinging
to a single cell. Between the
cells were thousands of germs
left there by the smears of saliva
deposited by the drinkers, Not
less than a hundred thousand
bacteria were present on every
square inch of the glass.”
