Scott Bill Reported
The Scott bill to prohibit fut-
ure transactions in cotton, recen-
tly acted upon favorable by the
house committee on agricdlture,
was reported to the house today.
The committee says the purposa
of tne measure is to restrict as
far as possible those transaction
whioh are recognized as dealing
only in the fluctuations of pi ice
of cotton and which do not in-
volve the actual transfer of the

There is a very widespread
sentiment in which the oemmit-

those transactions are demorliz

they are hurtful to those enga-

cotton and are for the

BREAD, CUES, ETC.
The Inter-Southern Cotton-
seed Meal Go. of Cleburne, Tex-
as, through its experiment sta-
tion, recently sent out to the
Kings of England and Spain
samples bread and cake pre-
pared ffrom cottonseed meal.
The Company is in receipt of
highly cou&plimentary letters
from both ^onarchs, who asked
for the recipes and a shipment
of cottonseed meal. President
Taft, his cainet, ana the houses
of Congress have also sampled
these commodities and pronoun
ce them most wonderfully del-
The Company, at a $10,000
outlay, has secured these reci-
pes, and ig constantly exper-
imenting for others. Already
breads cakes' biscuits, pies, pas-
tries,^etc have been successfully
made from cottonseed meal.
Cottonseed bread, etc is prono-
unced far more healthy than
wheat breaci- A celebrated New
York specialist has advised the
company that cottonseed meal
foods are a Godsend to humani-
ty suffering with gastric and
diabetic troubles, owing to the
high protein and fat and the low
starch content. Cottonseed
meal br&u£ is thirty times as
nourshing as wheat bread and
more twenty times as nourish-
ing^ as meat. In addition, where
ever it has been tried in the
household it is said that it has
practically replaced wheat bread
etc. It has peculiary rich and
attractive flavor. Probably the
cake made from this product is
the best ol all cottonseed food
preparations. The Inter-South
ern Cottonseed Meal Co. express
the opinion that cottonseed meal
as the basis of breads, etc., will
replace wheat to the extent of
90 per cent in from one or two
years. They are spending much
money to put the recipes into
every home. Elsewhere in this
issue of this paper will be found

pany, advising how recipes may

without any unnecessary and
undignified "Hello's," he at

"Good morning, Mr. Wood.'
That savors of the genial hand-

have received had he called in
person upon Mr. White.
Undoubtedly there would be a
far higher degree of telephone
courtesy particularly in the way
of reasonable consideration lor
the operators, if the "face-to-
face" idea were more generally
held in mind. The fact that a
line of wire and two shining
instrnments separate you from
the person with whom you are
talking, takes none of the stiug
out of unkind words.
Telephone courtesy means
answering the telephone as
quickly as possible when the
bell rings-noi keeping the
"caller" waiting until one gets
good and ready to answer.
Telephone courtesy, on party
lines, means being polite whea ,

Three Boys Try Experiment
and Tank Explodes
Monday afternoon, about 4
o'block, while experimenting
with a gasoline tank, an explos-
ion occurred which resulted in
the injury of three boys employ-

The tank had been drained of
gasoline and had been repaired
and equipped for storage tank

being fastened in the head of

good effect which resulted in a

COMPANY, CHICAGO, ILL
Last Friday evening "Topsy

edy was presented with great
eclat by home talent. Despite
the unpropitious weather a large
crowd gathered to sea it und

an i i i hji'.j h encores it is
safe to tay thai those who ven-
tured forth weie in no way dis-
appointed. The shrill winds
outside were soon forgotten in
the daring sallies of Miss Topsy
and the itireating clouds were
lost sight of in the genial humor
of t ld Ned.
Honors in the famine part of
the cast were evenly divided
by Miss Alma Lincoln ms Topsy
Turvy and Miss Claudine Hughes
as the Deacons wire. The be
bewitching vivacity of the form
er occasioned much laughter
while the naive simplicity of the
latter wou the sympathy and
appreciation of the audience.
Miss Faun Jeter as May Golden
aud Miss Clara Birmingham as
Mrs Clarendon were both sup-
berb. Among the young men

and George Meredith as Ned
