Why Cotton I* Low in Price.
The Montgbmery Advertiser, io
commenting on the low price of cot-1
ell quarters comes the seme
report—unexpectedly large yield of
cottony Io August there was every
prospect of such damage m would in
evitably cut the crop helow that of
last .year, and a yield of not oyer 9,-
was the general
fall gave new
' Ert and the fields were
foil of struck by frost. No
* dW now counts on lees than 10 000,-
000 bales and there is very general
concurrence of belief of the largest
crop in the history of the country. A
few days ago The Advertiser published
a statement from Uniontown in this
state showing that receipts there al
ready were more than double those of
the whole of last cotton year. Reports
of as heavy receipts as for all of last
year have been published from many
plagper Mt pone where the increase
wt Uniontown. Otr'
gl6l a fair-idea of many
WfottoU. points. For the year ending
August 31,1897, the receipts here Were
129.747 b ales. Up to the end of last
week of this cdlton year
were 130,768 bales, which were IOjOOO
greater-than ft>r Same period last year
and 1,021 greater than for the whole 1
of Isstyeaa The receipts wilt be the '
largest Montgomery has known in
years, as at least 30,000 more
bales will be Marketed here. It is not
hard to account for 5-cent cotton when
men stop to coneider the amount
raised.” _ .
While this excessive production has
-been the ease in Alabama, it has not
shown up that way in Griffin and in
C other points in Georgia. The crop
here Was large, but not.aa great as
U that indicated above by the Advertiser.
The figures ale only another pointer
farmers showing- the necessity!
for reducing .the acreage.
Gladstone to Young Men.
What Mr. Gladstone has to say to
young men about success in life ought
to be worth reading and worth think-
Mng about as the “Grand Old Man” is
fully capable of giving good advice.
“Be sure .that every one of you has
his place and vocation -on this earth,
and that it rests with himself to find it.
“Do not believe those who too say,
‘nothing succeeds like success.’ Effort,
honest, manful, bumble effort, sue-,
ceeda by its reflected action 1 , especially
in youth, better than success, which
indeed too edoily and too early gained,
not seldom serves, like winning the
first throw of the dice, to blind and
Stupefy. '■ .
“Get knowledge all you can.
“Be thorough in all you can do, and.
* remember that, though ignorance may
be innocence, pretension is always de
spicable. Quit you like men ; bo strong
uod exercise your strength.
“Work onward and work upward.”

Telephone* Hurt Railroads.
I Who Would have supposed a few
yeafs ffifebat railroads would be in-
way by telephones ? a If
anybody bad suggested before the day
of long distance telephones, that the
time would come when telephones
would ent down the incomes of rail
roads from passenger receipts be would
have been thought lacking in common
sense. - And yet it has come to pass
that railroads complain that long dis
tance telephones are injuring their
passenger business. In our dispatches
yesterday it was stated a railroad com
paoy was puzzled by the falling off in
its passenger receipts, when, owing to
better times, the receipts ought to.be
increasing. After a good .deal opih
quiry the company discovered Jha?
in its rdbeipts was due to
the falling off of its local passenger
traffic, and Mikt fewer people than for
merly traveled from one station to an
other along its line, because of the
quickness with which they could com
municate Jjith' business men and
friends in the nearby towns by means
of the telephone- They saved ?
and money by using the telephotft,
and the result of that means ot trans
acting their business or talking with
their friends was just as satisfactory as
a visit to tfie town where their busi
ness was to be done or their friends re
The use of the telephone is being
steadily extended. No one can foretell
the future of that remarkable inven
tion. The time may not be distant
when it will bring the people of the
principal commercial nations into
much closer communication than the
telegraph has brought them- Indeed,
we may have only begun to realize the
possibilities of eledtribity.' Tl te aw
agent which now renders us great and
varied services, but the probabilities
are that the field ot its usefulness will
be so greatly extended that the ser
vices which it wjll. render ns in the
near future will be far greater than
those it now renders us.—Savannah

The Wit of the Oeurt,
r In a certain case, sayylhe San Fran-'

f young lawyer of a western town, while
r the opposing counseLML Carter, was
b a much better knoilf attorney of a
i neighboring nicy. Mr- Babeon was
- addeesing the jnry, and having ex
-1 plained a point of law to the jariMl
i turned to Mr. Carter with the word*,I
s “Isn’t that righlF’
Mr: Carter thought he bad afteM
r verdant subject on hishands,and with j
i a smile of conscious*superiority, re* I

Not in the' least abashed, Mr. Babson

A Bright Uttle Page.
A bright little boy—one of the pages
of th* senate —sat at one of the senate
entrances the other day, when a lady ■
approached him with a visiting card in
“Will you band this to Senator
Blank T.” she said.
“I cannot,*' replied the imy, “foi all
cards must be taken to east lob
The woman was inclined to be an
gry and went away muttering. Then
a thought struck her, and (eking out
her ppckeffeßbk she found a twenty
fl ve-cent piece. With it in her hand
she went back to the boy.
“Here, my lad,” she said, in a coax
ing tone, “here is a quarter to take my

moment’s hesitation, “1 am paid a
1 larger salary than that to keep cards
