The business men of Bartlett
have carried in the past three
fsBiies of the Bartlett Tribune a
full-page appeal to the fnrmers
of that section to plant less cot-
ton and more feed stuffs using
as a basis for their article an ox-
cerpt from an address on the sub
iect by John Orr of Dallas presi-
dent of the Texas Farm Bureau
Federation. The appeal of the
Bartlett business men should be
the appeal of the cotton fanner
himself not only in Texas but
all over the cotton belt. A bum-
per cotton crop this year will
prove a real bumper of another
kind for the producer and yet
what will be done with the sur-
plus feed stuffs the farmer may
raise? Anyway wo compliment
the business men of Bartlett for
their enterprise in tills mnttor.
Those Bartlett business mon
including the three banks who
have carried a full-page appeal
in the Bartlett Tribune for tho
past four weeks urging farmers
of the Bnrtlett trade territory
to plant less cotton this yenr arc
not in accord with the Govornor
of the Dallas Reserve Bank ac-
cording to a Houston news Item
reporting n recent district bank-
ers' convention at Houston. The
Reserve Bank Govornor opposes
a reduction in tho cotton acreage
He wants big crops. As between
the advice of the business men
of Bartlett who know first-hand
what they are talking about and
are business partners of tho far-
mers and that of the head of the
Dallas Reserve Bank who Is con-
cerned with big business and re
discount rates we should nrefer
the former as the safer to fol
low. Georgetown Sun.
Dealers in playing cards say
thuy sold many more of tho same
in 1921 than usual. Some at-
tribute this to prohibition and
say that many mon who used to
frequent saloons are now play-
ing cards in their homes and
clubs. Also unemployment in
many places left people with idle
time which they used in this
way. Card playing rightly used
sharpens the wits and gives re-
lief from tho tedium or strain of
work. Many people however
idle away too much time at It.
When they use it merely to kill
time and help drag the weary
hours along it is a sign that
they have lost somothing of de-
sire for self improvement. The
ambitious man who is out of
work will spend the greater part
of his time in trying to fit him-
self for better service and the
merry pasteboards will be only
an incidental and occasional di-
version. Complaint is made that maga-
zines and joke books are being
circulated the principal purpose
of which is to print smutty
jokes and pictures. There are
always vultures who are trying
to sell dirt to the public. They
need stiff fines and periods of
reflection in jail to induce them
to go into some honest form of
earning a living. Normal mind-
ed neonle of adult years do noL
buy literature with an obsceneo'
taint wilt tnere is an impres-
sionable time in the history ot
many young men when they
can be swayed in almost any di-
rection. You put a permanent
dirty tendency into their minds
by feeding them unclean stutf.
The young folks who got this
streak are not apt to amount to
much in business or sport. Tho
nuthhorities of the state of
Texas should suppress literature
that tends in this direction
HOW GRANT HANDLED
Durinir the civil war Union
soldiers were paid $13 a month.
-Owing to depreciation of tho
dolh r that amount gradually)
shmeird in purchasing power.
In 1865 it was hardly onehalf of
what it had been in 1861.
Be aup their pay remained

mg rose ana oerauae u Decani c r

injustice had been done the sol
Ten years after Appomattox a
Hll was pasaed by congress au-
thorizing a cash bonus for each
ex-soldier equal to $8.88 a month
during his entire time of ser-
vice. The idea back of tjiis bill was
that such an amount would al-
most make what he had lost
through the dollar's decline and
that the government honestly
owed it to him.
In rough outline the situation
was similar to that confronting
President .Harding right now
aave that the civil war was a de-
cade behind whereas the world
war is- only three years.
The following message by
which President Grant vetoed
the bill would therefore appear
Washington March 8 1875.
To the House ot Representatives
House bill No. 8341 is hero-
with returned without my ap-
proval for the reason ' first
that it appropriates from the
treasury a large sum of money-
at a time when the revenue is
insufficient for current wants
and this proposed further drain
on the treasury. The Issue of
bonds authorised by the bill to
a very large and indefinite sum
would seriously embarrass the
refunding operations now pro-
grossing whereby tho interest
of tho bonded debt of the United
States is being largely reduced.
Second I do not believe that any
considerable portion of tho ox-
soldiers who it ;s supposed will
be beneficiaries' of this appro-
priation arc applicants for It
but. rather it would result more
in a measure for the roliof of
claim agents and middle men
who would intervene to collect or
discount tho bounties granted
by it. The passage of this bill
at this time is inconsistent with
the measures of economy now
demanded by the necessities or
the country. U.S. Grant.
This race and religious pre
judice which nppenrs to be on
the incline in this country fos-
tered and agitated by a certain
organization will if permitted to
gain in strength result in n civil
war more terrible than any re-
corded in history. Bear in mind
that God made all of those varl
ous types of people they arc
all human and Ho did not in-
tend that one should suppress
the other. Bear in mind that
tho hundreds of different re-
ligious beliefs were all' taken
from the sam? book. All have
a right to live and worship God
according to the dictates of their
own conscience. They arc all
amendable to the laws of tho
land and when they violate these
laws they are punished or should
be. Further than that we ought
not go. Wo may educate and
appeal but must not use force
in tho form of organized antago-
ism1 directed specifically.Auahu-
Tho. interview of Dr. Adolf
Lorenz about corsets printed
in tho New York newspapers re-
cently was widely copied and
caused much comment. Tho
fashion authorities almost with-
ut exception agreed with the
noted surgeon in his statement
that all women should wear cor-
sets to be neatly gowned. Com-
menting on it from tho health
angle Dr. Pierre LcBrun a well
known specialist of Paris said:
"Doctor Lorenz has spoken the
words of wisdom. Women need
a brace about thee body-not ono
that disorta organs but one
that helps make thorn comfort-
able. A married man said to me
"Without her corset my
wife i3 a crank with it sho is
delighted and reasonable." Ho
is right. If a woman thinks she
looks trim homo for her hus-
band will be much more ploas-
fant place than'if ho has the idea
her appearance is slouchy.
Not all whocompefo in the
boys and girls clubs can win out
but those who try and lose are
better off than those who don't

There are all kinds of busines
in the world but the most im-'
portant of all is the business of
mothering. Children need hous-1
ing schooling dressing feeding
and a Jot of other things but
.vhat thoy need most of all I '
When the mother takes her
baby up in her arms and cuddles
him close and loves him hard it
is not a mere gesture nor an
empty impulse; it is the out-
pouring of her lovo into his lit-'
tie life. She is charging his
subconscious lifo with the mag-!
netism of the greatest force
known on earth love. J
A child that can look back and
see his earliest recollections;
steeped in mother love has de-
cided advantage over the child
who has no such memories. For
he knows in spite of all the dis-
illusions and betrayals and bit-
terness of later years that there
is such a thing as absolutely a
pure and selfish affection.
Cynics may sneer and pessi-
mists may "pooh-pooh" but
when that child in later years Is
tempted to Bay that all -men lie
that all women deceive and
there is no one to bo trusted ho
finds he cannot say it for there
is one who ho knows-would give
her life for him. -The man who
has had a good mother can never
wholly lose faith. He can never
be utterly bad and hard for tho
memory of his mother's" force
and voice is forever a live spot
A man may play tho fool for
yenrs he may make sport of the
ten commandments but if ho
has been well-mothered he has
a line that will pull him back
to decency. A good mother
does more good vthnn all the
policemen in the country.
There is a little crypt under
tho altar in every man's heart
wiiero only mother enters for
she alone holds tho key.
