s Brains in Business.
This is a day of brains and tlie.v

COTTON STII-L RISING.
The rise of cotton last week to
nearly ten cents a pound was grati
fying to the business men of the
whole country. If the cotton plant
ers will continue to borrow on
their cotton instead of selling it,
the price of cotton will continue to
rise and then when the Depart

after the planting season is over
that only one half a crop was
planted then the price will no

Pasbing Tbe Ship Bill.
Washington, D.C., Jan. 25,1915.
?The action of the Democrats in
the Senate a few days ago, in
pledging themselves unammiously
to the support of the Bill for the
purchase of Ships has elictied the
ever whelming approval of the
Since August 1st, whem more
than half of the world became in
volved in war, ships bearing an
aggregate of five million tons,
have been with-drawn from com
merce. Our great cotton crop of
1914 which is literally weeping for
the opportunity of getting into
the European* markets, would be
greatly benefited if Uncle Sam po
sessed an adequate merchant Ma
rine. There is great demand in
Europe for our lumber, grain, and
other farm products, but not near* ,
|y enough ships with which to
-export them. And so if we had
an adequate nufnber of ocean car,
rying ships with which to handle
the vast manufacturing and agri
cultural output of this country
business would be flourishing to
an unusual degree, iq every state
in the Union. The Bill "provides
for an issue of thirty million dol
lars ($30,000,000) Government
Bonds, with which to punchase
and. to build a Merchant Marine
with which to meet this problem.
The Bill Is broad in its provision
and the government Can if it wisb
ea turn this enterprise over te
private individuals after it is once
organized if it sees fit to do so.
