One Hundred Thousand Deaths
from Drink Each Year.
"Dr. Norman Kerr, the greatest
authority on inebriety that the world
has produced, tells of his study of
this pnibletn in his work, ".Mortality
of Intemperance," published in In
don in 187'J. Ho says: "When, a
few years ago, I instituted an in
quiry into the causes contributing to
the mortality in the practice of sev
eral medical friends, it was with the
avowed object of demonstrating and
exposing the utter falsity of Jhe per
petual teetotal assertion that (K,()(Kt
drunkards died every year in the
"1 had not long pursued this line
of inquiry before it was made clear
to me that there was little, if any,
exaggeration ill these temperance
statistics; and when asked to present
the final results of my investigation
to the last Social Science Congress,
I was compelled to admit that nt
least 120,(100 of our population an
nually lost their lives through alco
holic excess 40,500 dying from
their own intemperance, and 7t,r(KI
from accident, violence, poverty, or
disease, arising from the intemper
ance of others."
"Tho late Dr. Willard Tarker. of
New York, one of tho foremost sur
geons that America ever produced,
after a thorough study of the sub
ject in New York city, gave it as his
mature opinion 'that 3.'!) per cent, of
all the deaths in New York city were
occasioned directly or indirectly by
the use of alcoholic drink.' Kvery
medical expert known outside of his
own precinct who has made an ex
haustive study of the problem has
come to practically tho same conclu
sion, i.e., that a minimum proortion
of deaths caused by alcohol is 10 per
cent As there were 1,039,091 deaths
in the census year 1900, that would
make about 100,000 as alcohol's

W hy, Ur. Jordan told the writer
that some one came to him at the
hotel after the speaking hem, and
after the fanners from dilTereiit sec
tions of the county had testified that
the acreage would be reduced, and
told him that lie need not pay any
attention to w hat the farmers of this
county said, that they were not going
to reduce. Are you content for such
a rcHrt to go up as this? Yet the
government may have among its re
porters men who w ill give just such
a report, and thereby cause great
loss to the cotton growers.
Remember the day, the first Satur
day in May, and let's make it a rally
day that is what President Jordan
calls it. In the meantime prepare
for plenty of corn and forage. If
you nave been making a failure in
the oat crop, plant some of your cot
ton land in peas and fertilize them,
and then sow your oats early next
fall, and by this time next year
they will lie a source of joy and
pride to yon. Don t depend on an
oat crop after cotton; it is simply too
late, and for this reason the oat crop
is usually a failure in this county
I hero is money in oats, there is

The farmer who plants his usual
quota of cotton and fails to make
ample provision for food and forage
crops, is just walking up to the maw
of the five cent-cotton wolf, and the
wolf will camp around his door all
next winter. Ho is just furnishing
the stick with which the speculators
will beat him to his financial death
If cotton is 5 cents next fall, don't

It is the awful tragedy of many a life.
A word of affection that ought to have
been swken, but it was kept back
until it was too late; a kind deed that
ought to have been done, but it was
left undone until it was too late; a
good resolution that should have been
made a deed, but it tarried until it
was too late. There is a too late, an
irrevocable too late, in the highest
