BREAKS ALL RECORDS.
Port of Galveiton Makes New Mark
in Exportation of Cotton.
Galveston, Tex., July 23.—The port
of Galveston broke all past records
during the fiscal year ending June 30
in the value of cotton exported to for-
eign countries. The movement of cot-
ton during the year, which combined
parts of the seasons of 1904-05 and
1905-06, was the heaviest in the his-
tory of the trade by 50,444.973 pounds,
although deficient by 10,767 bales as
compared with the prolvous year. This
heavy movement, together with good
prices, heaped up the value of cotton
exported to the Immense amount of
$138,474,631, a sum even larger than
the total value of exports of all com-
modities from the port on many pre-
vious years. This Increase was more
than enough to make up for a defi-
ciency in the exportation of by-prod-
ucts of cotton which existed during
The Increase In the value of cotton
exported during the year amounts to
$33,414,760, while the decrease In
value of cotton seed meal and eakc
amounted to $1,413,180, and the de-
crease In tho value of cotton seed oil
exported amounted to $1,182,172. To-
tal Increase In value of cotton and by-
products exported during the year as
compared with the previous banner
year amounts to $30,819,417.
England proved to be tho best cus-
tomer for Texas cotton, that country
taking 1,159,350 bales, valued at $69,-
585.307. Germany came second with
613,799 bales, valued at $35,744,233,
and France third with 313,100 bales,
valued at $18,238,364.
Of the shipments of cotton seed
meal and cake Germany took 241,113,-
030 pounds, valued at $3,120,256; Den-
mark second In order with 49,090,273
pounds, valued at. $602,800, and the
Netherlands third with 34,205,496
pounds, valued at $427,246.
The Netherlands took first place In
the demand for cotton seed oil, taking
1,828,496 gallons, valued at $652,066,
whHe Mexico ca^ie second, taking
1.018.G96 gallons, valued at 269,171.

Cancels Engagement to Address the

Word was received this afternoon
that J. !!- Connell of'Daltas oould not

meeting tonight at the Elks’ hall, as
$2.9& skirt sale begins at Eastham
A Markham's tomorrow.
A movement is on foot having for
Its object the establishment of several
experimental truck farms around Den-
ison next year In the hope of enequr-
aglng truck crops and Increase the
annual yield to such an extent as to
give Denison a standing In the market
centers of the country and attract
buyers for the large produce concerns.
Ou a recent trip to St Louis, Chi-
cago and Cleveland, Secretary Larkin
of the Denison Board of Trade made
a careful investigation of the work of
business organizations in those cities
and also spent much time in the pro-
duce centers, studying market condi-
tions and requirements. He collected
much valuable information and receiv-
ed suggestions that he thinks can be
turned to good for the fruit and truck
growers of this section. He found
that the commission sharks In these
large cities found their prey among
the farmers of Texas who fall or re-
fuse to co-operate in handling their
produce. The earliest Texas potatoes
always find a market at good prices,
regardless of grade, but after the sea-
son Is well on, the buying houses de-
mand graded stuff In large quantities.
They are willing to make track pur-
chases on a guarantee of grade, but
these requirements can not be met In
North Texas because there are no or-
ganizations and no one to Inspect and
assume the responsibility. So the
merchandising concerns turn to sec-
tions where the growers are organ-
ized and where they put all potatoes
over a grading machine that frees
them from dirt and gives them a uni-
formity of size.
The commission shark then gets
busy in Texas, sends out deceptive
telegrams and urges quick shipments.
They always find a large crop of vic-
tims, who rush their potatoes out in
all kinds of sizes. In all kinds of pack-
ages and a liberal supply of dirt.
Then comes the news that the cars
were received in bad condition and
had to be sacrificed for only a little
above freight charges. The car gen-
erally shows an actual shrinkage of
2,500 pounds on account of the dirt
and then the potatoes are reworked
and the good ones are sold at good
prices while the little ones are sold
out to the cheap trade. The man who
works over the car makes good money
but the grower—well, he decides to
raise corn and cotton.
Mr. Larkin was told by some of the
largest potato dealers In the country
that if the growers of Denison could
put out as many as fifty car loans a
season, and would grade the stock,
they would be glad to put buyers here,
hut that until this Is done no legiti-
mate concern can afford to tackle the
Another condition calculated to dis-
courage potato growing here has been
that Oklahoma, Arkansas and Tennes-
see potatoes reach northern markets
about as early as thor? from this sec-
tion. Authorities advance the opinion
that Grayson County potatoes can be
put on the market much earlier than
they have heretofore, by planting ear-
lier and quickening the growth with
certain forms of fertilizer, which will
greatly Increase the yield. Every day
saved In getting to market means bet-
ter prices and it Is proposed to experi-
ment along this line.
Several farmers to whom the propo-
sition has been presented have ex-
pressed a willingness to set aside sev-
eral acres of land for experiments.
Secretary Larkin is arranging to en-
list the aid of government experts In
this work, which promises great good.
