too the trust will have to pay a sufficient
price to Induce farmers to plant. Oth
erwise farmers will go Into cotton and

With heart and hands ever ready to
do deeds of kindness, and to smooth the
rugged pathway of the distressed and
the sorrowing, she lived a life full of
works. She was to this writer a mother,
and though she has been seriously af
flicted for several years, it was always
good to seek her counsel.

power, she bad in recent years, success
fully combatted against severe cases of
