The Herald recently published
special dispatch on which a oaption
wa jlced ad vising Tcxans to "holi
on to their cotton. " The dispatch
showed why an increase in the price
was bound to come acd the increaae
baa come. Oa the Njw Orleans market
last week cotton sold at 6io pe
pound for middling which is eq .liveli
er t to $42.50 per bale or an advance o
817.50 pr bala compared with the
prices ruling during the greater part
of lat-t teamen.
The question now uppermost in the
crtton states is Will present prices
represent about the Unit of the ad
vance or win values go even nigner?
There are of course fays the New Or
leans Picayune some cautious people
who areue that present prices are eo
very satisfactory to producers mat
tbey will be content to unlcad the bal
ance of their crops; hence such person-
look rather for a gradual declension
than a further advance. On the other
band however the vast majority in
the cotton trade now look for a further
improvement not a few predicting nine
cents per pound in the not distant fu
Although there has been a material
improvement in the price for cotton
it Is said tbat the manufactured goods
trade both at home and abroad is
very prosperous ana tnt mere is
still a good profit even with ootton at
current prices. With trale so good it
is reasonable to expect tbat consump-
tion will continue on a very liberal
scale notwithstanding the increased
cost of raw cotton. It is admitted

CODDLING THE CUBANS.
Some women who are Interested In
Cuban charities are consulting Gen.
Wood as to the dispo.-al of their funds
lioh womaa baa a particular hobby.
Ooa wants to spend all her money for
a noes. Another wants to buy several
hundred dollars worth of toys to send
to the children to divert their minds
from their misery on the principle
anaoo'.ated by Dtvld Harum that "it
-was good for a dog to have fleas to keep
iim from brooding over being a dog."
Others have ideas jurt as unique.
The governor listens to all of these
rogsestloos with patient kindliness
anderstaodlng the generous impulses
which prompt the gifts but he ex-
presses the same views t all tbat
there Is too muoa indiscriminate char
ity in Cuba: that the efforts of tboss
interested should be concentrated upon
ma one obj set of helpful and per-
ataoeat character aai not wasted in
naay directions upon toiogs which
-were really not necessary and of only
Gov. Wood's idea of the best gifts to
the. Cub to people from American
Jriends are th. se which fall olose to
-the lines upo a which he is working In
the reconstruction of the government.
The Highest form he believes such
ieaefiti oaa tka is that of tcbool
ioast-8 orphan asylum hospitals and
ther instltuti ins of like character.
He brlieves tbat if a charitable fund
ia expended in building and fully
sq-alpping a echoed house and this
school bouse Is then turned over to tbe
local Cuban autborities the best use
.possible bas been mda of the mooey.
Next to the school house an i closely
allied to it ia bis opintcn is tbe or-
aaojjasylum o- any other institution
which cares for educates or improves
the condition of the chlliren ia
whom as a matter of fact lies tbe f u-
tare of Cuba as a self-over ila coun-
ty. In short he believes not that
there is too much charity being ex-
pended in Cuba but tbat it is too In-
discriminate and therefore a great
deal 1 es tffdctiv e tbaa if several of
&hese efforts were combined to produce
Koe r a ly valuable tangible improve-
ment of note which would stand for
years to come and have a oons'ant
daily influence upon th j Cuban charac-
ter. It Is also doubtful whether Gov.
Wood believes tbat tbe question of im-
mediate relief for temporary condi-
tions in Cuba is as pressing as is gen-
erally believed in the United States
r tbat tt Is wise to encourage the de-
pendence of any peofle upon the
ners' bands are very small and sur-
plus stocks in Liverpool are alsounoom-
monly light while the amount afloat is
much less than usual at this season.
Such being the case -it is revocable
to expect an active demand for cotton
as long as spinners find it possible to
turn out yarns and cloths at a profit
no matter what the price of the raw
material may be.
Because of this admitted strength of
the statistical position many cotton
men of sound judgment look for even
higher prices in the Immediate future
no matter what later on may

England was growing effeminate.
E tervated by luxury she bad lost her
vital sap for want of something to move
her to strenuous endeavor. Oom Paul
has supplied the need. So now to use
Milton's magnificent phrase "you see
her rising a mighty nttion shaking
her puissant locks." No effort she
ever made before wag so great as tbe
present one though in fact man;
former efforts were greater in propor-
tion to former resources. Lord R b-
erts wants 90000 more men and he is
to have them and within three months
there will be 250.000 to 300 000 British
soldiers in South Africa. Such a force
is deemed neoessary for counterpoise
to tbe ad van t tees which tbe Boers
have in inner lines and rapid mobiliza-
tion. The British army is to be strong
enough to meet the whole Boer foroe
at any point of collision. The endeavor
which this campaign calls for is just
tbe thiog necessary to put new life in-
to the old ration.
The young republicans of Missouri
have associated themselves to promote
mutual acq talottnce and vigorous ef-
fort to redeem the f-tata. Making and
unmaking tickets and platforms is not
tbelr business. Their mission is to ad
vance republicanism and a wlie fie'd Is
open to then. Toe "first voters" will
be strongly in evidence In thi import
ant political year. Between tbe party
of action and achievement and that
blocking the way tbe choice is ea-y
especially for those on the threshold of
their lives as cit z -ns and b iBiness
men. Not maoy youo men will vote
to minimize their oount-y and them-
selves. The young republicans of
Texas should catch tbe t-plrit of tbe
young Missourians and orgaoiz along
the raise line'. Tbe war-borses of tbe
i party are getting Into lie; "first vot
ers" tothe front.

I be most sensational item on tbe list
