CROCKETT, TEXAS, OCTOBER 1, 1914. VOLUME XXV—NO. 35. COTTON AND CO OPERATION. An Able Article by Beverly D. Harris, Vice President of the South Texas Commercial National Bank. I believe I can at this time with confidence make the following statements: 1. There is no adequate reason in the present cotton and financial situation, extraordinary and un- favorable as it may be, to warrant selling cotton below the cost of production. 2. If the world's consumption this year calls for only 10,000,000 bales, or even less, it is entirely possible through means at our command, and common sense methods of marketing, to obtain more for it than the whole crop would bring if thrown on the mar- ket in a panic and marketed in dis- tress. 3. It need by no means be in- evitable that the weight of the crop will break t...

The department of agriculture at Washington, realizing that it can not begin too early to impress upon the farmers the seriousness of the situation that may face them if the European war is continued at length, has issued a statement to the far- mers as follows: In every emergency a plan of action is a great help. The prices of food products are high, and there is every indication they will re- main so during the next year. The war in Europe has disturbed pro- duction abroad and has interfered with consumption and with markets and financial conditions in this country.

- ss? H!kl iü T«AT FAILED. • Jay Said Our 8upreme Court Would Be a Failure. Alexander Hamilton predicted that the house of representatives would have "no small advantage" over the senate in any dispute, since it would be the popular branch of the government and because it would have the power of originat- ing all money bills—a strong weap- on in its hand. But the senate soon became the dominant partner, and the house found that the power to amend money bills exercised by the senate nullified the advantage of originating them. At the close of John Adams' ad- ministration it is said that John Jay refused the appointment of chief justice on the ground that the bench would never attain "the en- ergy, weight and dignity which were essential to its affording due sup- Íort to the national government/' 'his forecast John Marshall made absurd. When Louisiana was annexed Senator White remarked in debate that "gentlemen on all sides, with very few exceptions, agree that the settlement of this ...

Editor of the Courier: I have been talking with your merchants and bankers and other business men and perhaps the re- sult of these interviews will be in- teresting to the people of Houston county. Just now a movement is pretty well on foot looking toward cutting down the cotton acreage next year and there is every reason to believe that this will be done. Farmers are standing together and working in unison right now better than ever before as is shown by their refusal to sell any more cotton than they feel compelled to market in order to meet pressing bills. With all backing up each other in handling the present crop under these tryi...

In spring the hair of the chamois has the color of the deer, in autumn it turns dark brown, and in winter almost black. Then the flocks move down from their verj high pasture grounds toprard the wdody regions, where they find both food and shel- ter under the broad branches of old pines, which keep the ground under- neath free from snow. But no soon- er has the snow melted far enough to allow them sufficient food above the timber line than they are off to return to their favorite abode, the high, inaccessible Alpine pastures. There they live together in flocks of five to twenty, most gayly, as appears from their playing, sham fighting and merry jumps. Meantime they never fail to mount a guard, mostly an elderly doe. It seems that these are fitter for this duty than the bucks, prob- ably because of their greater care- fulness owing to their motherhood. Their scen...
