good work. It is better, much better,

behind his back or face to the front.

The disposition of the people has
been exposed in the columns of the
Telegram since we started the "Flow-
ers for the Living" department in this
paper. We have a terrible time find-
ing one little paragraph every day to
put in that department. The one we
have used today is just to stall—It Isn't

I RIPPLING RHYMES J
By Walt Mason.
At all our modern colleges, where
we are told true knowledge is, they
train boys to orate; the student who
can speechify, and paw the air and
screechify, is "hailed as something
great. The country's needing work-
ingmen, and not the loud-voiced
shirking men who labor with their
jaws; the list is ever narrowing of
men who're fit for harrowing, for
weilding plows and saws. The list
is always lengthening of fellows who
are strengthening their lungs by exer-
cise; they talk to us eternally, they
whoop it up'durnally, doggone their
useless eyes. Methinks it's rather dan-
gerous to take the young man gran-
gerous, and make them orateers; to
send them yawping, yamming, the
poor old welkin hammering, through
all their futile years. Of all the
worthless oddities, of all the punk
commodities, from here to furthest
Ind_ of all the things that clammily
depress the human family, the worst
is Speaker's Wind.

A. Do not know. We understand

Q. Observing the wide range of
your knowledge on the many sub-
jects discussed through the medium of
the "Question and Answer" column,
it occurs to me that possibly you could
decide a little question of the proper
mode of address to use in a letter to
a certain firm. The firm in question
is composed of two ladies, one, though
no longer in the truly active state of
marriage, a married woman for a'
that, being a widow, and the other
with an evident leaning towards a
state of single blessedness, as she is
still unburdened with a man to sup-
port. In writing to this firm, how-
should one address the letter? That
is, should one say, "Dear Ladies." or
"Dear Girls," or "Mesdames," or
what? It is desired to address them
both as a firm, not separately.—Cog-
A. (iff hand, we would say that a
man of your address has no business
writing to a firm such as you men-
tion. Remember Luke McLuke's fam-
ous paragraph, the one he terms his
best: "Do right and fear no man.
Don't write and fear no woman."
However, if you must communicate
with the firm you can probably get by
with the salutation, "Dear Ladies."
The Wrong Way.
The Temple Telegram says: "Tem-
ple Y. M. B. L. endorsed the 'Flow-
ers for the Living club,' as all good
boosters must finally do." Those who
imagine they have a privilege to
knock on their fellow man who Is do-
ing his best will some day wake up in
Hades. Their money and titles won't
save them from eternal punishment.—

The Cotton Supply.
If the cotton farmers fail to involve
the national government in an effort
to export cotton regardless of conse-
quences, the next step should be to
keep production down to the apparent
practical demand for the staple. The
acreage should not be increased, as
such a procedure would bring future
loss to the cotton growers. Let the
supply be adjusted to the demand.—
There are three important things
to remember when considering the
cotton situation; supply, demand,
price. These three things are inter-
dependent, and their sum total is al-
ways the same, no matter how any
one' of the three may vary. If the
demand is to be a given number of
bales, then the supply and the price
are dependent upon each other. If
the supply is a given number of ba'es,
then the demand governs the price.
If the price is to be a certain sum,
then the supply must be made to con-
form to the demanJ. Farmers should
remember this little bit of information
and count their acres carefully before
planting them to cotton this spring.—
Excited: Why didn't you sesream?
That would have been the most logi-
cal thing to have done.
"Phew!" exclaimed Mr. Dubwaite.
"I see where another corporation has

"Were they entertaining their em-
ployes, dear?" asked Mrs. Dubwaite,
to whom a melon by 'ne river's brink
is a melon, nothing more.
"No," replied Mr. Dubwaite. "A
melon of that sort is usually cut on
the polished mahogany table of a di-
rectors' room and the average em-
ploye never gets within a mile of it."

Italy for its natural beauties, its vivid

Thus the quiet little city, a commis-

what extent the people here are now

we do not know—for we have not in-

know, and that is that a good many
