The ready, hidden pistol is* re-
sponsible for most of the murders.
The impulse to shoot comes quick-
ly to the man who has a pistol in
his pocket. Anger, which whonld
often cool if he had to go home for
his pistol, become insane fury in a
moment, if the pistol is at hand.
It is the ready pistol that makes
cowards brave enongh to kill an- \
armed men, bullies go forth to over- J

bands to shoot their wivks. It

Prize fighting is a Srutal pas-
time, which shows a good deal of
the savage remains yet in the av-
enge man. It is bad enough when
two men pound each other into a
maas of bi'ufses and wounds, bnt
when, as was recently the case in
an easternatate, two women are
the pugilists and fight like wild
beasts for a parse of money and for
the amusement of sporty toughs
who pay liberally for the sight, it
becomes absolutely disgusting.

The president Off the New Or-
leans Cotton Exchange declares
that there are hnndreds of uses to
which it might be applied if the
attention of the manufacturers was
only called to the availability of
the great Southern staple.
If this could be done and the
demand for our cotton immeasur-
ably increased at home, the south
would in time become independent
of the foreign market and use every
bale grown in our own manufac-
tories. ^Production ' would keep
pace in a measure with the increas-
ing consumption and with the in-
crease in the number of uses that
might be made of cotton the south-
ern farmer would be encouraged to
raise more than he does.
It is not economy for our raw
materials to be shipped to Euro-
pean mills, manufactured, then
shipped back to America and sold
to the original growers. ; ... ,
America mast leant to live at
home even more than it does and
the balance in favor of experts
must be increased. — Arkansas
