THE COTTON BLOOM.
The Rose haa a thousand lovors because
Of her dnlicuto grace ami perfume;
But lovers forsturdier reasons givo
Their hearts to the Colton Bloom.
It in n dazr.ling ample land
Of ruoaHurelt as breadth and room—
And the wealth of a splendid tropical sun
Dowers this Cotton Bloom.
And Capita! keeps his eyes on the field
While he hears the hum of the loom.
And his anxious visage glows and pales
At the nod of the Cotton Bloom.
— [Howard Weeden.
•James Logan Mesby.
I was conceived, in passion, hatred,
envy, and greed, born in the morning
of antiquity, and have a genealogy
whose every page drips with the red
blood of murdered innocence. I respect
neither the feebleness of gray hairs,
the helplessness of infancy, nor the
sacredness of virtue, and walk, iron
shod, ruthlessly and impartially over
tie form of the weakling or the form
of the giant.
I paint the midnight skieB a lurid
glow from the burning homes I have
ravaged, and I turn peaceful scenes of
rural beauty, where God’s own crea
tures dwell together in amity, into a
raging hell. I set neighbor against
neighbor in deadly combat, and I incite
brother to slay his brother.
I make puppets of kings, princes of
paupers, courtiers of courtesans, and
thieves of respected subjects; and em
pires melt before my breath as does
mist before the morning sunlight.
I make of religion fanaticism, the
heathen a fiend incarnate, and of all
men I make playthings devoid of rea
son and justice. Through intrigue I
make the intelligent powerful, the un
scrupulous wax fat on the spoils of
blood-won victories gained by others,
and the less learned suffer for their
Famine, want and misery follow in
my path; I lay waste green fields, and
still the hand of industry. I pillage
the land of its resources, but contribute
nothing to the benefit of mankind,
leaving pestilence to stalk ghostlike in
my wake and complete the work of de
struction. I lay heavy tribute upon
my most loyal subjects for the main
tenance of my establishment; I squan
der the vitality and lives of those who
serve me faithfully, yet return to the
world nothing but. ruin and ashes. The
baubles of fame I confer on Borne are
empty shells of false standards wherein
the license to commit murder and ra
pine is held to be the insignia of glory
by a mistaken civilization.
I can offer no excuse for mv having
come into existence, nor can I give one
plausible reason why I should not
cease to be, other than that so long as
men who wield influence ore permitted
to gratify their selfish desires and am
bitions at the expense of the many who
mu9t carry the burdens and endure the
sufferings, that long will I continue to
exact my toll of sorrow, devastation
and death. For I am pitiless—devoid
of all feeling; I fear neither man nor
God; I am amenable to no law, and I
am in myself the law and the last re
I AM WAR!
At Planting Time Next Spring.
If the war in Europe should still be
in progress next spring, when seed-
dropping time comes in the South, it is
probable that there will be little need
of legislation to limit the acreage to be
planted in cotton.
For there will still remain undisposed
of approximately half, and possibly a
good deal more than half, the crop of
1014. Some of this cotton will be
stored in warehouses, a good deal v/ill
still be on the farms where it was
raised, and a not inconsiderable part
will be in the hands of those who have
made purchases either from philan
thropic or selfish motives. The mills
in the Uuited States may have also ac
cumulated a considerable stock, taking
advantage of the low prices prevailing.
Knowing these things to be true, the
farmer who deliberately plants any
thing like the average annual acreage
of the last ten yearn courts not only
disaster, but destruction. It will be
the wildest sort of folly for the South
to plant more cotton than can be con
veniently carried through the winter of
1915-16 and the succeeding spring.
Prudence and safety demand that the
farmer produce at home everything his
family, his laborers and his beasts re
quire, for the problem of the South is
but the aggregate of the individual
problems of the cotton-growers.
The farmers have been accused of
many follies, and they have often been
guilty, but we believe they are too
H»ne to plant more than half a crop of
cotton in 1915.

A contrast- and its chief cause-is
shown by the cases of Preston, Pa.,
and Wellsville, Kan. The Pennsylvania
town h said to be the "wickedest in
America.” Four hundred and twenty
five of its five hundred inhabitants
drink whiskey, and 415 of the 425 are
said to get drunk regularly. Wellsville,
the Kansas town, 48 miles from Kan
sas City, is 44 years old, has a popu
lation of 750, and has never had a
saloon in its history. It has never had
a case of rape or murder; a pauper, a
thief, or a lawyer. Of course, its in
habitants are not all saints, but they
have no pool rooms and Ho bawdy
houses. There is a $2,500 school-houS?/

There are brick and cement Bidewalks,
and brilliant street lights at all cross

except the town marshal. Once an
agent for a mail order liquor house visited
Wellsville, but before he had booked
any orders fifteen feminists, armed

Mr. Benton tasted reflectively.
“I don’t think so.” he remarked.
