shot gun in his own hands last
r rulay night.

Thomasville. The young man pre
ceded the other members of the
family home. When his mother
entered the vard she noticed the
body of a man lying near the house.
She called her husband aud they
found that it was their son. The
boy was lying flat on his back in an
unconscious state and did not speak
a word after he was found. His
cap was a few feet behind him and
the gun was about five feet in front
of him pointing towards his feet.
It was evidently fired at close range
as the whole load of the shell went
in his abdomen at one place. His
clothes were burnt with the powder
and were covered with blood all
around the bullet hole.
The youncf man had evidently
entered the bouse and secured his
gun for the purpose of joining in
the Christmas . shooting going on
and in coming down the steps of the
porch he stnmbled and fell in such
a wav that the whole load entered

Now, geutleuien, you cuu charge

tore, or niiUUeU cm reports, tne pres

resolve to hold your cotton, gentle-
men, aud a fellow can hold up
hundred pounds, maybe two or three
hundred pounds, but when be gets
under twenty tons to hold it up, the
twentv tons will iimsli the ciuilm
out of him. It has been nearly two
months since 1 put fnndson notice,
tliroueh tbenolttninsof The Journal,
that there was cotton in Texas, and
the southern states geneially, to
burn. I did not get bait tnrougb
the cotton belt of the southern states
until I wired back "Sell my cottou.
'i'hia is the larges' cotton crop ever
produced in the world s nistory, ana
why the world ilia not eaten on
sooner is a mystery to me. When
passed thronch the cotton belt the
first of November I saw all ' that
came out in yesterday evening's re
port. 1 have not sattl so publicly,
but in discussing the cotton crop
with fricMds l have put tno Amen
can cotton crop at thirteen million
bales for this year ana the foreign
crop at two and a naif millions,
Cotton vesturdav at six and five
eighths for middling, which means
from live and a naif to six tor most
of the cotton uow on the market.
Our cotton raisers or farmers al
ways hold their cotton when they
ought to sell, and always sell wnen
they ought to hold. ltow, let them
resolve to hold their cotton and then
remember what I said about a fellow
holding up twenty tons. The cotton
mills and consumers only wnnt to
know that the cotton is made. They
don't cure whether its on board of
ships, i.t seaport towns, in vare
hotises, or lying around the farmers'
yards at home. All they want to
know is how much cotton is- made,
rind the amount raised, when it's
known, will regulate the price. Con
sumers can no more horn cotton
down below the price fixed by sup
ply and demand than bulley and
his crowd could bold it up -above the
price fixed. The one will eet as in
evitably mashed as the other. There
is but one relief now to the man
with cotton on hand, and that is to
fall back like the old woman did
when she said, amid all her trials
and troubles and tribulations, that
there was one verse of scripture that
always comes to her relief. Some
one asked her, "What was the
verse?" She replied, "That blessed
old verse that reads 'grin and bear
The bulls have done their best
since the middle of November to
bold the price up, and, in spite of all
that they have done and all they
have lost, cotton has been gravitating
to the line marked out by supply
and demand. The consumers were
willing to pay eight cents for cotton
until they saw by correct estimate of
the crop that they could get it at six
to seven cents a pound. I've been
roiiiK over the cotton producing
states for more than tweaty years.
1 have seen more cotton this year in
the fields, in the cotton yards, on the
depot platforms, piled up around the
gins, than I. ever .saw before, lean
tell a little annle from a bie ancle.
and I can tell a big cotton crop from
a little one about as easy if you will
let me see them both. When 1 saw
the cotton crop last year, as it show
ed up in the fields, in th cotton
yards, on the depot platforms, and
so on, I saw that it was the smallest
crop that bad been made for yearn,
and also said, "1 will bold my. col-,
ton for fifteen cents, and get it." I
did hold it. I did get fifteen and a
half cents a pound for it. I got be
tween nine and eleven for what I
old this year, and I sold it early, be
cause of what I saw.
There is no use kicking, glontle-
men, uuIms you kick yourselves.
The south can got mucb more money
for a 10-inillion bale crop at ranch
lets cost than the can gut for a thir.
teen-uiilliou bale crop. Now, the
question comes up, "What'll you do
about ft, lirother hurniei." " 1 take
