He appeared in the grand ballroom of Hotel Pennsylvania, before 1,30b member* of the American Committe for Devastated France. Immediately utter be had spoken h*- motored to the steamer Paris, on which he sails back home today. The Tiger of France received ova. tion after ovation—Aral when ha en tered the hall to the strains of the "Star Spssagled Baimer," again whon lie was referred to m an address by Joles J.

I have got s sort throat, I am tired, l ajn old, and I want very ranch to go to bed. “But all this will not prevent me from saying oner more what I might lo say I came to thia country to ac complish a doty which nobody asked me to accomplish. I came to appeal to thr American mind, and the an swer cam* from American hearts. "*7 dear thands, 1 have'^sen . row* sMaq la this' bloody craal war. I am a wttaaaa far them, If they • need any. I know from the first mo much longer. Yo* have done splendid work, a* great I should any or greater than could be expected from your con* and brothers and husbands; but there remained a duty, and tlie great est part of it was beautifully accom plished by the ladies tlvrt I have be side me, wbo with generosly, with kind haarta toward those who had suffered to ranch, did more than they could have been expected to do. “For thia 1 am not to thank you— that is not enough. 1 do not beliavs in reward. 1 thing each good haul l» Its beet reward to itself. “I want simply to tel] you that w*» acknowledge it, and we are eve*' thankful for ft. When the Americana came they arised among us great hapat.

Wa were told they wen* go ing to be and wa all believed It. "fhit now a sorry time had come. No more question of killing of dying of infllctlag 'wound* and bleeding. Now the time for peace, that is, for duties which may be harrier than it scams. "America left after having (fitjn Uretted herself from the action of the treaty. I know the feelings wet all tight I do not suspect a moment that there was in American heads anything than this, that they had accomplished their duty and could leave the right to other times “They thought, seeing the soldiers coming home, ‘we ora through.’ The trouble la you went not through; at least we were not. We wpr* left and struggled and suffered, and we wer# not paid, and we have to bow and •pond money for reparation that Qer • many ought to have paid, but which nobody has found wuys to oblige has to P«f ■ la that way wo suffered and wo did not complain. ‘‘Bat as far aa I am concerned, I suffered very much more when I heard that we were charged with be ing milltaristie and Imperaitstic In Amariea and that made me jump tram my vary pleasant mat on the ocean and eonut to America to ask you what was the matter. "What the matter was, f know It now. The matter was that you were not wall Informed. The matter war that you did not knew what eras our condition. The matter was that you thought France was militaristic and ImparialMJe, whan Gemany woo mill tariotta and Imperialistic.

FINAL FORECAST OF COTTON CROP SmnllMt In 20 Yean, Euapl ing Laat Year; Rank* Fourth In Value Washington, Dee. 12.—This year's ration production U the smallest in •wcr.j-t years, excepting last season's '.mall crop but based on December 1 farm prices. It Is the fourth most valuable ever grown with an aggro ,-uta of tl.m,608,9(6, not including :he value of (Inter cotton a odd cob oiueeH Which will total many billions •S dollars more. The crop this year was placed to day by the Department of Agricultmrc in Its final estimate of the season at 1,767,262,000 pounds of lint, which '* equivalent to 0,964,00 balsa of (00 pound gross weight (487.4 poo ads of lint and 21.6 pounds of baggtag and Us* estimated per bale.) Thia final estimate Is smaller by 171,000 bales than any of the government's fore casts of the season mads from con ation reports doing th« growing ssa jon. While Uiee was a Urge acreage in cotton this year, the boll weevil got m Its work with extremely heavy 4am tge and drought In many sections ma terially assisted In keeping down the production. South Carolina and Oeor *m were hardest hit ef any of tha cotton growing States, their predac eien being about forty per cent ef tbe average of the five years, 1918 to 1920. '-ember 1 avenged 2)1 teals par pound, which rub fourth highest la the history of the industry, bel^g ex 'ceded only by the price in 1817, 1818 and 1818. Statisticians estimate the dimen sions of this year's crap in hnlao to be equal to a cube six h usd rod feet square and m hundred feel high. The average per running kale this season is estimated at 808.8 pounds gross. . The estimated production by Stutm follows: Virginia 25,000,__ South Carolina 880,000. <e»orgla 721,000. Florida 20,000 Alabama 835,000. Misaiamppi 1,010,000. Louisiana 357,000. Texas 3,290,000. Arkansas 3,040,000 Tennessee 400,000. Mieaeuri 149.000. Oklahoma 835,000. California 85,000. Arizona 42.000. All other Stages 16,000. Prior to December 1 there bad been pinned 0,318,144 running bales, as announced by the comma bureau. That would indicate there are approximate ly 648,000 bales remaining to be gin ned. the CHRISTMAS TREE THAT SATISFIES 'No human being, of himself, is sat isfied. For this reason Christ came into the world. Last Christmas Paul Rader pent to his personal friends a strikingly beautiful Christmas sue ssge. He mid, in part: “Hew beauti ful a type of our loving Lord is the Christmas troo. It is eat down, aa ha was, for the use of others; rat dowa and taken from Ms heme to our homo for joy. His cutting down on that ctuel cross, becoming a curse for ua, satisfied—yea, praise God!—fully satisfied every claim against as. The Christmas tree sparkles with Irides cent light, cheerily, merrily, bright ening the room and the happy faeea; but He ia light arith all He glow ami glory of color, cheering, lighting, warming, comforting, delighting. Hit light slonv m trades; for it el one can not away all dgrkneas, letting ua ‘walk in the light, as he it ia the light.’ Thle light alone brings fellowship. Loneli ness eannet reach ue; he satisfies. The Christmas tree to leaded with pres ents He came to give gifts to men— the more abundant lift for spirit, soul snd body. In him and through him for us today am gifts, gifts, %tfu for evsry need. Our names am writtoa on them, but we have never opened them.
