NO rOIIKTEhUXU THE PRICE OF
It is ne.t to prognosticating
the weather to be guess' ng
what will be the price of cotton.
From the best statistical in
formation it is clear that the cot
ton crop is very much less than
the estimate at the opening of
tin; season. There seems to be
the fairest promise that cotton

With this hope it is comforting
to observe that the farmers have
been in no hurry to sell.

On tlic very heels of our an

From the best information we
get, much of the friction has
risen from his discipline that has
wrought good in the school as
legards a number of vicious
practices. It is easily noticible
that those who do not control
their children are apt to be over
sensitive about the measures
they make it necessary for a
school disciplinarian to practice.
This is the bottom of the trouble.
The only grave phase of the
situation as we observe it is that
Prof. Coon is charged with
ridiculing the bibles, or at least
certain accounts of old testament
miracles. These charges are to
be heard next Friday. It is to
