Evidence of this is seen In the sign-

foreign countries recently, and the
movement suggested a year or so ago
to limit the number of battleships to

of the war are summed up, the sanity
of the peace movement will be recog-

those who have demonstrably been
for peace all the while. And what will
thl# reward be? Wherein will the

To those who believe that the wel-

Those »ho have been nourishing a
feeling of depression as to the finan-
cial stability of the country can find
a eaooe for optimism by following
closely tbe actions of Secretary Mc-
Adoo 'n his campaign to throw 'he
searchlight of publicity on those In-
stitutions which are hoarding money
to the detriment of public welfare. In
a telegram to the superintendents of
banking in each state, printed In the
Telegram Friday, the secretary said
"There is at this time more cur-
rency in the country than at any
time hi Its previous history. There
haying been Issued through the treas.
ury department since August 1th more,

gether with the relaxation of busi-
ness, should create an abundance of
Tills announcement will doubtless
be very gratifying to those who have
corns to harbor the false opinion that
the European war has completely cut
us off from our supply of cash, and
that money everywhere would be
tight until the warring countries had
regained their normal conditions. In
this connection it is pleasing to note
the courage with which the adminis-
tration Is pointing the accusing finger
at those institutions which are re-
fusing to loan their surplus cash on
legitimate security. This does not mean,
of course, that the banks alone are
able to handle the whole cotton situa-
tion; but it does mean that the coun-
try is much better off than many
people over the state have been led
to believe. The people over the
South are perhaps feeling the effects
of the European war more than the
people 'n any other section of the
country; for the Soutli's principal
crop is cotton, and the bulk of that
crop Is annually, under normal con-
ditions, exported to those countries
now involved In war. flut the buy-a-
bale movement and the warehouse
plan have already done much to re-
lieve the situation, and if the pro-
ducers over the country can be made
to appreciate the fact that the finan-
cial conditions of tbe country are
good, much will have been done to-
ward revealing the fact that there is
no need to cry "hard times."
The country will come through the

In considering the cotton market a
man need* to know something about
it. The recent advance in the cotton
market was caused by the fact that
the cotton had been contracted for
and the buyers were compelled to buy
to meet their special contracts. The
buy-a-bale movement served to stiffen
tlu» market to such an extent that the
buyers were compelled to pay a fair
price, dor in# which time the Tele-
gram advised the cotton growers to
sell. Thooe who took the Telegram's
adv;ce have profited. The price has
gone down agaia just jlk it would have
done if the buyers had filled their
contracts at a lower price.

The OaWeaton News lilts the nail squarely
on the head when it ohserres that Governor
Colquitt's proposed Bank of Texas would
offer ao advantages of consequence sot al-

and it would at tbe same time subject the
state school funds to the sometimes un-
serupulou# manipulations of designing poli-
ticians.—Corpus Chrlstl Democrat.
The argument is against the estab-
lishment of the proposed bank but
there are many who will support it
regardless of reason or argument.
And some of those are now employed
by the state.

It is only liaUiral that women,

true .observation Is that t*ll wars are

their advantage. The movement to
use cotton goods wherever It Is pos-
sible and convenient will do much to
solve the distribution problem of that
product. The acreage reduction of
that product, which will doubtless Ijo
appreciated next year, will aid in ad-
justing the supply of cotton to Ru-
ropean demands, and it will also pro-
vide a surplus of food products for
which there will bo a ready market

Q. Will you tell me somthluir about sub-
A. There are two distinct types of th« sub-
marine Tessa)—the submarine proper, and
the submerclhla. Tbe submarine proper
etnke through the eahnustlou of all Its
buoyancy, while the suhmernlble* are forced
under. In the latter cluns, the surface buoy-
ancy I* reduced almost to the vanishing
point by means of water, which Is admitted
!i»to tanks, and they are then steered down-
ward. The motor power In submarles Is
electricity, stored »n accumulators. The
submerstblo has two distinct motors—a gas-
oline or team engine for driving the speHel
on the surface. *ik! an electrical motor for
diving. The endurance of tho men under
water In both types Is solely limited hy
the fresh air supply. With the Hb»g)t«h
ships the endurance Is put at three hours,
attbejigi the compremwd air supply is cap-
able of asurtng a much longer endurance.
The great difficulty of submarine aavlga-
tkrn lies In discharging torpedoes as to
making an ebject a fair certainty. Vision
Is generally obtained by means of a tnbe.
which extends a IttOe above the surface ef
the water and Is so flttel with mirrors as to
raflect the position of the objects within
the horlsen of tho tube. The torpedoes are
fired by aiming tho boat, as their direction
In determined solely by the position of the
boat. Tho torpedoes are fired by com-
pro used air, hut they are u I ho fitted with
small motors which assure sufficient power
to drive them to objects within the range
ef the suhmnrlne boats—which is several
hundred yards. The explosion of tbe tor-
pedoes Is caused by tho blow when they
come In contact with the object attacked.

Is one of the moat sensible mov
that could possibly be made. The
late Col. Henry Bzali In hundreds of
speeches and In unnumbered written
articles urged the farmers of Texas
to use the proper eare In the selec
lion of seeds for planting. Hundreds
of thousands of dollars are lust an-
nually through powr and Improper se-
lection of seeds. Corn yield la cut
down sometimes as much as one-
third just because the need la not

will not make • good stalk and the
stalk will not produce a good, big
ear. And even a good grain of eorn
from a poor ear will not give tbe re-
sults that a good grain from a perfect
ear would (five. Save your best cotton

properly attended to, bring great re-

be very small.—Cleburne lluvlew.

The writer met Davis K. Doyle wan-
dering around the west In the inter-
eat of the Temple Telegram. He Is
visiting the various towns on the
Santa Fe west of Temple and his
dally pen pictures are doing much to
weld a filing of congeniality between
the westernerns and the Telegram.
We heard much favorable comment
on his articles, and the towns are
pieaced with his mission. Great Is
the Telegram, and they have the
proper man "on the wing."—Jarreh
High at F1oi«mw.
The Temple Telegram ltan much
to say about the price paid for cotton
in Temple on last Friday. Temple
paid from 8:25 to 8:50 so says the
Daily and this had every market in
Texas or elsewhere beat from 25 to
50 potats. Florence paid from 8.35 te
S.50 all day Friday, and we venture
to say that if the Telegram would
phone over before going to press they
would make at least one exception
when they make such broad state-
ments regarding their cotton market.
We have the Temple Telegram to
back us, when w« say that Florence
has the best cotton market In Texas.
Bring your cotton to Florence and
receive the benefit of good prices.—
nigh at Trenton.
Temple made Kood the Telegram's
promise yesterday <Friday, Sept. 18)
to pay the top notch for cotton, the
prices here ranging up to 8.55, being
from an eighth to a half-cent per
pound higher than any other market
In Texas, or elsewhere.—Temple Tele-
On that same day the buyers of the
little city of Trenton, Fannin Coiunty,
Texas, paid 8.75 for cotton. Please
correct your mistake, Mr. Telegram
Man, about your city paying more for
cotton than any place In Texas.—
A Temple bank advertises "Why not
place the money in the bank to pay
the note to become due soon." Now
if this bank will just tell us where to
»?et the money, we'll go all the way
to Temple to place It in said bank.—
(Corpus Christ! Caller.)
Now that Secretary Mc-
Adoo has made himself
plain concerning the gov-
ernment's attitude toward
the national banks, an ad-
vertisement in the Tem-
ple Telegram is ot Inter-
"The federal money
that we are getting to aid
in moving the crops is
used for that purpose.
Please understand, Mr.
McAdoo is not after us in
his threat to withdraw
government aid, should
the money be used for
other than the purposes
The First National
Bank of Temple takes a
step that will help to in-
spire confidence in its vi-
cinity. The money avail-
able to the banks must be
made available to the
farmers. The govern-
ment is only interested in
its intelligent placing.

al Bank on Page 9.
If the government makes the war
tax too high on gasoline, wine and
beer some people will be Inclined to
cut out the use of gasoline entirely.—
Oh, no, they won't, Rome people
will always use gasoline, while others
will always use something else.—
WITH THE NEAR ;
Out at Eden, Texas (not the original.
"Garden," but with tbe reputation ot
being something of a garden spot nev-
ertheless) there Urea a poet or a
near poet, at least. Anyway be la
near enough a poet to be broke, m
universal characteristic of poets, and
he therefore covets the "purat" offered
by somebody (not the Telegram) fop
a "Texas Poem." And he proceeds to
go after that prize strong In the fol«
lowing Jlngly lines:
Ten dollars for a Texas poem.
The Temple Telegram will pay;
Just who will get lo blow 'em,
We're not prepared to say.
If they'd make It fifty dollars.
We would try our very best, 4
And mix up with the scholar*— "
l-.uke McLuke with the rest.
If they'd make It ftrty dollars
And guarantee the sate.
We woald write of war's follies—
Then we could "buy-a-bale."
Texas has many poets
Who can writ® some pretty verse.
And the Telegram will know It,
For they all will want that purse.
Among so many poets.
We'll quite a showing make.
But our bens says for us to wrlite It,
For we will need that stake.

SHE LOVED MB—SHE LOVED
(By J. Clarence Kdwardx.)
I wooed a maid with ardent zeal,
Her air was love-Instilling,
And O the thrillH my fond heart feltl
Yes thrills, divine, soul-filliug!
She praised my rhyme, declared in#
She strung me almost daffy;
She hinted love 'till I, poor wight,
Believed her line of taffy.
I grew to love her with a vim
That knew no bounds nor equal;
Tho moon shone bright and all tha
But wait and hear the se«iuel;
Ono night I took her to a ball.
Not dreaming of the folly;
I had her four times on my card.
And what you think, by golly?
The First we sat—I didn't dance—i
The Next she cut to dance, sir;
The Third I only caught a glance
That pained me like, a cancer!
The Fourth T did not see the mald-4
Now where could she be hiding?
I took my hat and, halfway home,
I met her, auto-rldlug!

The Temple Telegram says thai
Temple pays the highest price for
cotton of any town In Central Texas.
Temple 1b also a noted badger market
and a man could sell a few gold bricks
up there. We know who would buy

THE SOFT MAN
By Laura Kirkman.
There's one In every community. It
is to him the neighbors fly when they
lack rake—hose—lawnniowr. He's
always ready to lend. Ho it is who
heads every subscription list.; he
doesn't know how to refuse. Nor does
this inability to refuse money and
property encompass his softness; he
can't refuse oven friendship. The
rhlning, the uninteresting, the ques-
tionable, flock to him for companion-
ship. Slowly, ho is becoming known
as a crony of the shlftness. His
stronger-minded neighbor steers Clear
of him. And no wonder. He's looking
too much like a door mat.
Down in the Oarriao Springs coun-
try a farmer sowed a plot of ground
in onions, harvesting at the late of
J00 crates to the acre. The crop sold
at $1.40 per crate. Then the ground
waa put In sweet potatoes the crop
selling at the rate of $200 per acre.
The land now goes back into onions,
making three crops within the year.
But the farmer who turned that crop-
producing trick was not too busy to
drop in on the Fort Worth market this
week with a car load of hogs. Cotton
acreage isn't puzzling that sort of citi-
■en—tho hustler who keeps Texan
prospering all the time.—Fort Worth
By Walt Mason.
Do they think of me at hor e, do
they ever think ot me, as through
weary years I roam, sadly over land
and sea? Do they speak of how I
spread soap upon the kitchen stair, so
that father pushed his head through
the cane seat of a chair? Do they
ever recollect what he said when he
came down, all his Sunday garments
wrecked, and a lump upon his crown?
Often when the suu sinks low, crim-
soning the sea's white foam, I would
give the world to know If they think
of me at home. Do they speak of
how I tied giant craekcrn to the cat,
so we only found tho hide, and not
very much of that? Do they think of
how I placed nettles In Aunt Sarah's
bed, or of how that spinster chased,
saying she would break my head? Oft
I find tho sledding poor, journeying
from Cork to Home. If I only could
be sure that they thjnk of me at home!
Do they apeak of how I sawed through
the legs of granny's chair, so sho fell
about a rod with he.' tribys In the air?
Do they evermore recall how I broke
the window pane with my little bat
and ball, when the hush of evening
reigns? Though I'm old and tired
and blue, with white hairs upon my
dome, I'd bo cheerful if I know that
they think of me at home.
