Cotton picking time is near
There is much s peculat : cn over
the labor proolem among the fann
ers as to securing a sufficiency of
labor t 6 pick .ho cotton crop. The
crop this year :s far in excess of
that last year and labo- is extremely
short. Many of the negroes have
gone to other sections of the cour
' try and it is said that white labor is
scarce. However, it is true that the
farmer with the help of the mem
bers of his family has made the crop
and now it is up to htem to gather
it. It can be done and with much less
expen.A? than by hired labor. The
negro is a liability rather than an
asset to the farmer. In days gonei
by when the negro had to be fed and
carried for the entire year, the
farmer made little from his farm,
but now with the negro gone, what
has been made has come from the
labor of the white families. It is an
improved condition and one which
will prove profitable to the average
The farmer who has lived at home
and carried on his farm operations
without hired labor has something to
show for his year’s work. The de
parture of the negro was a blessing
for the agricultural interests of the
.south. ,The farmer who depended
upon the negro never gained thdre
iy. The farmer who remained at
home and earned his livnig and did
his own wofk is the man who is in
dependent now and will remain so.
A better day is here for us all and
the era of prosperity is dawning
TPATRIOTISM IN IHE ROUCH.
General Calles, president-elect of
Mexico, who will assume the reins
of government in December, before
sailing for Europe gave to New York
something of a new vision of the
Norih American republic, bringing
home irather pointedly the difference
brtween iwdfticians and patriots.
Seejmrily the -fundamental differ
ence between the rebel and the pa
triot is the difference between suc
cess or failure if' we may rely on
world judgment from time immemo
rial, running the gamut from Le
tter and Trotsky through our own
George Washington and back into
the ages. Colles is essentially a pa
triot—for Mexico. He likes the
.United States an<J appreciates its
marvelous accomplishments, but he
is for Mexico, and he sounded his

when he worked for three cents a

Calles plainly means that he will not
permit the Mexicans to work for ten
