gj Wise Talks By

Ton never heard of a m^n
having to consult an occulist on
acocunt of weak eyes caused
from looking on the bright side
of things. Lots of people In the
world would be' real good if they
didn't think they were so g6od.
Then take the other fellow who
has troubles and tries to drown
them. In nearly every case, he
■ seems to think they're located
In his stomach. Worry is the
undesirable thoughts a fellow
can't help thinking. Cheer up!
Tou are not half as bad off as
you think you are. Be glad of
life and content with your pos-
sessions until you have made
the best of them. Prosperity is
in the air, and although it may
not have struck you yet, it will
In a few days or a few weeks,
becauso we're going to have sev-
eral more years of it. Gosh, how
this store is growing. People,
from all over the world are
flocking to this city because of
our wonderful prosperity. We'll
; soon have to have about two
more stores right here in tpwn.
I think if jrou haven't been in
to see the new fall suits, It's
about time you were coming.
There are lots of other new togs
to look at. You needn't to hur-
ry about buying—all we want is
to have you look and not over-

New York, Sept. 7.—A cable dis-
patch to the Herald from Havuuu
Colonel Pino Guerra, leader of tho
Insurgent forces in Iinar Del Rio
province, announced Thursday that he
was ready to begin an offensive cam-
paign against the government. He in'
tends making rapid moves, changing
camp as often as possible, in order to
avoid having the burden of feeding
bo many men long in any one sec-
tion. He broke camp at Jibara be-
fore noon yesterday. Fifty minutes
later, when the daily train for Havana
started for San Juan Martinez, wherti
the government troops are centered,
the road south of the station was cov-
ered with Guerra's cavalry as far as
the eye could see. Two kilometers be-
low the station, where the highway
crosses the railroad, the train was
(•topped by insurgents, who lined
horses alongside the track. From that
point a long view of the road in each
direction showed the Insurgents mass-
ed to the horizon. Colonel Julian
Betancourt,, Guerra's adjutant, went
through the train, receiving warm
greetings from almost every passen-
ger. He ordered the removal of two
rural guards who had tried to hide,
and took the mail sacks with all the
correspondence from San Juan. Tho
telegraph wires had already been cut.
When the train was ordered to pro-
ceed without one shot having been
fired, the insurgents resumed their
march toward, the hills back of Rio*

Action Taken at Texarkana Meeting
of Farmers' Union.
Texarkana, Tex., Sept. 7.—The sec-
ond day's session of the National Farm-
ers' Educational and , Co-operative
Union was devoted almost "entirely to
routine business, including the reports
of officers and committees and the
discussion of the same.
What Is regarded as one of the most
important reports was that submitted
by the committee on education. The
report recommends that there be an
increase In industrial and agricultural
instruction in the public schools, and
also suggests a course of reading on
economic and governmental affairs for
ail the members of the organization.
The report elicited much applause dur-
ing its rending and was unanimously
During the day a resolution was
ndopted recommending that the con-
ference held at Washington last May
between the cotton producers and tjhe
cotton manufacturers be repeated itn-
nually in future and made a perma-
nent feature. I
^ Eugent Williams of Italjas, Texais,
presented the eonivcntto^with a round
of cotton welghlQ£s4£5 pounds
lth the request that^Mw sold and
the proceeds applied to the fund for
n monument to Newton Oresham,
founder of the order. The gift was
accepted and the cotton will be sold
nt auction in front of the city hall.
The committee on cotton seed and
cotton seed products made its report
at last nicht's session. The commit-
too consists of E. S. Peters of Texas,
chairman; Tipton of Tennessee. Ma-
huffy of South Carolina. Murray of
Arkansas and Ambrose of Louisiana.
Tb" committee report was adopted,
We. your committee on cotton seed
and cotton seed products, beg leave
to submit the following report: That.
Whereas, At present market prices
the approximate selling price of cot-
ton seed products from one ton of
cotton neod nggrosrates about $26.30, as
follows: Meal. r "0 pounds, at $27 per
ton. $10.80; oil forty gallons at 27M>c
per gallon, $11; linters. fiftv pounds,
at 1V,e per pound, $2.25; hulls. 7.V)
pounds, at $G per ton, $2.25.• Total
*26.no. And knowing that tho total
oo*t of producing said products front
the raw <?eod will not exceed $5 per
ton. we feel that present prices paid
tho producer for seed aro far below
what tbev should bo In view of the
value of this product,
Thereforo we recommend to the
members of the Farmers' Educational
and Co-operative Union that no seed
be sold for less than the following
rates: In the territory east of the
Mississippi River a minimum price
of 10c per bushel, or $18 60 per ton,
seed Is worth that amount to tho
grower for fertilizer. Tn the territory
west of the Mississippi River'a mini-
mum price of $15 per ton, as It l.s
worth that price for fertilizer or feed
We earnestly urge ail farmers of
the South to Join us in our effort to
secure a fair minimum price for one
of our principal products. And as a
matter of public policy we make the
further recommendation that the at-
tention of those public officers whose
duty It is to see that the anti trust
laws are enforced he called to viola-
tions (hereof, and that they be urged
on securing convictions hot to release
offenders by mere payment of fines,
but that the provisions of those laws
providing for Imprisonment penalty bo
rigidly enforced. Signed by E. S.
