The Tribune has always and
will continue to advocate local
enterprises for Bartlett. It seems
a bit strange that men who have
capital and pretend to be anxious
to invest it, sit idly by when the
town is sadly in need of many
small enterprises whioh would
pay a handsome dividend and be
a success from the start. The
town needs a light plant, a laun-
dry, a creamery and other small
factories. Lot those who have

One of our physicians told us

I was one of the most disagree-
able Aights, and after a ride
aboufck miles in the country,
he wr met by the following:
"Well, dootor I sent for two
other Actors before I sent for

am glad you got here, and
time if I can't get one of those
other doctors I will send for you
again." Yea, verily, there are

man who have troubles of their
own. Moody Courier.
The Rusk Industrial Press says
the man who contends that a
movement to price the products
on the farm is a farmers' trust,
is either a fool or a knave. The
products are priood somewhere
and by somebody. Is it any less
a trua't tfor buyers, speculators,
to combine and price ttiem than
for the producers, the iwners, to
prioe them, even though they
must combine or co-operate to do
so? When wagon makers put a
price on wagons is that a trust?
They do it. When toothpick
makers put a prioe on toothpicks
is that a trust? They do it.
Everybody puts a price on what
he makes or produoes but the
farmer. That poor cuss must let
supply and demand prioe his
things, and the "supply and de-
mand" that does the pricing is
the most godless set of knaves
that ever lied honest men out of
their sweat and labor. Let the
fellows that say farmers should
not prioe their stuff put that in
their pipes and smoke it.
Mr. Julius Rungo of the Gal-
veston Cotbn Exchange esti-
mates tho average cost of pro-
ducing cotton to be 7 cents per
pound, and bases his estimate
upon the conditions that prevail
when cotton is above or below
that prioe. When cotton sells for
more than 7 cents per pound, ac-
counts are promptly paid, new
wagons, harness, implements,
furniture, paint-and fencing ma-
teria) are sold and farmers' - de
posits are largely in evidence nt
local banks, When cotton sells
for less than 7 oents per pound,
accounts are not paid and a gen-
eral business depression prevails.
Tho reaeoning of Mr. Runge is
lgioal, and his estimate of 'cost
being based on twenty-five years
experience, comes as near being
correct as is possible to arrive at.
It is true that some farmers pro-
duce cotton for leee, and it1'!,
unfortunately, equally true that
it costs some, farmers more.-
