THE HOARDING SPIRIT
How Farmers Who Don't 
Trust Banks Hurt
Themselves
(News & Observer)
"An incident that came under
niv personal observation some
weeks ago," said a well-known and
prominent cotton manufacturer
who was in Raleigh yesterday",
"has been giving me a good deal of
speculation in connection with the
money stringency in the financial
centers, as showing how the pecul
iarity of the individual may, as it
were, become contagiuo> aud make
the community sick. The more I
have thought fcbout this happening
since the recent New York disturb
ances, the cleaier has it been made
to me what a far reaching effect on
the body of the people even the
most personal of the citizen may
have. When it comes to a question
of money, every man is trustee for
every other man, no matter how
much maney he has or how quick
he would be to say that what he
has he owns, without any strings
to it."
Explaining the circumstances the
cottou mill president said that a few
weeks ago a prosperous farmer
with whom he had had dealings for
several years, came to his office to
sell a lot of cotton, the price of
which was in the neighborhood ol
SI,OOO, The cotton mill man start
1> ed to write a check, but the farmer
stopped him saying that he wanted
the amouut in money.
When the mill man proposed that
he would send to the bank and have
the amount entered to the farmer's
credit and deliver him the book, he
still found that he wanted the cash.
"What are you going to do with
it?" he asked.
The farmer grinned and replied:
"Put it away at home, along with
the nine hundred you paid me last
year"
"Wheu I reflected," said the
cotton mill president "that this
man was a typical representative
of a prosperous class of farmers
who are making money, and that
he had absolutely destoryed by his
own industry the working power
of about two thousand dollars, I
began to consider the seriousness
of the situation he might indicate.
If, in this peculiarity, he repre
sents auy considerable per cent of
farmers the situationfts one that is
in every way regrettable. It not
only means that the South is losing
hundreds of thousands and even
millions of money that are paid for
its crops, but it means, also, thai
the entire financial situation is be
ing hampered and the farmers them
selves indirectly injured in the
prices that they obtain for their
products."
Although Southern banks are
generally unaffected by the recent
financial panics in New York and
other money centers, the effects of
these disturbances are indirectly
felt at this time in several ways.
In the first place the season of cot
ton marketing is at its height.
Millions are required to meet the
demand, more than the South can
raise of itself when the great inter
ests that buy the crop are hamper
ed in obtaining their funds from
their usual sources of supply. This
tightness of money, of course, op
erates to enhance the value of the
money itself and to pat down in
sympathy the price of the things
which money will buy. And,
pending the settlement of these
disturbances, although the South
ern banks have nothing to do with
the panic and are not affected by it
themselves, they are asked to fin
ance the farmers with loans to en
able them to hold their cotton for
better prices. For the farmers,
therefore, to hold out money in
strong bpxes at home, weakens the
money supply of a great agricul
tural section, just as the Brooklyn
people who withdrew their savings
weakened the supply of the New
York Banks and turned a tempo
rary feeling of uneasiness into an
acute attack of panic from which
recovery is slower in inverse ratio
as the trouble was short and sharp.
Tba incident related puts in sharp
relief the duty of the farmer to his
bank. He is bound to realize the
reciprocal character of hi* relation
ship to it. While the banks have
been generally accomodating farm
ers with loans on cotton in this im
mediate section and in other sec
tions of the State, there is heard oc
casional complaint from some farm
er who has been unable to get a
loan on his cottou.
Is such a farmer the sort who
hanks at home, and can a man of
this sort who has 110 confidence in
his bank have a legitimate reason
for blaming the hank for not accom
modating him?
As was stated the other day, the
Southern and Western banks are
now nearly independent of the
great financial centers, in the sense
that they do not have to call on
them for money. When the crop
moving time happens,
the home banks must draw on their
New York deposits. And when
such a time occurs at a moment
when the banks of the centers are
so pressed that they will uot re
spond to the drafts, somebody has
got to suffer. Generally, as is the
case this year, when the movement
is not free, and the farmers are try
ing to hold back their crops, the
sufferers are those who have got to
sell at a price that is lower than it
ought to be by reason of the money
stringency. At this season of the
year, when conditions are normal
and the crops being rushed to mar
ket, the banks are overflowing with
money. Now that the condition is
reversed they are hot in all instan
ces able to lend out as much money
as they would like.
How much more money would
there be at this time in the South
to make it independent to the point
of hiving funds on deposit suffici
ent to handle its great cotton crop
by itself, if there we're no farmers
like the one mentioned, who
"bank" at home.
In another cotton town a farmer
recently was complaining that a
l>ank had refused to lend him money
to hold his crop. The gentleman
to whom he was talking asked:
"Where do you keep your
money?"
"In a box at home," was the re
ply. '
"Well," he was asked, "What
do you expect? The neighbors in
your section have all been supplied
with the money they needed. Thev
Tiappened, also, when they had
money to put it in the bank instead
of a strong box, Now, after you
have cut loose from the bank so far
us being a depositor is concerned,
you want it to tie up with you In
becoming your creditor. Do you
think that is a fair bargain?"
Hoarding is,- of course, indefen
sible in any point of view, person
ally or otherwise. What is intend
ed here, however, is not to dwell on
the chances of loss so greatly in
creased, for that is a matter of per
sonal opinion in the last analysis,
but to iudicate how in reducing the
strength of his section, in robbing
himself and his neighbors of the
opportunity of borrowing money
for their needs, when they need it
and in the last instance helping to
put down the pYice of very basic
staple the price of which it' is his
dearest wish to sustain, the farmer
who keeps out of partnership with
the banks is hurting himself and
his people.
As a part of the capital of the
Sooth and as the one who controls
the capital which must finance the
staple crops and make the South
independent of the speculator, the
fanner, like other people, is a trus
tee for the benefit of the business in
which be is engaged.
And, in every dollar that he
keeps from circulation and use, he
is failing to perform the obligation
that is fixed upon him by its pos
session.

Kadkerine's j;
ii Lessons.
By CECILY ALLEN. !
►  I
( « Copyrighted. HOT, bjr I', t:. Kant maul.  >
It was Katherine Morgan's Brat week
at the Setttuient'a house. It was also a
week of revelations. She was now
alive to the fact that, despite her fa
ther'a wealth, her liberal education, her
years abroad, she kuew little or noth
ing of the treat mystery of life.
Katherlue had plunged Into settle
ment work moat impulsively directly
after her quarrel with Arnold Gresb
am. If a war had been In progress she
felt sure she would have gone out as a
field nurse. She had thought seriously
of entering a nunnery, but. being a
Protestant, this would have taken time,
and at that particular moment Kath
ertne did not want time to hang heav
ily on her hands. She wanted action,
and a different action from tlie usual
round of teas, dances and dinners.
Moreover, she wanted action apart
from the world where she would meet
Arnold Gresham, and, somewhat bit
terly, she remarked to ber tear stained
Image In the dressing table mirror that
unquestionably Arnold never would
find time to visit a Settlement house!
Neither wealth nor careful chaperon
age had been able to protect Katherine
Morgan from the shafts of one Dan
Cupid. Heretofore the wealth at least
had bought her everything that she de
sired, but it could not buy the slavish
devotion which. In her unthinking way,
she demanded of Arnold Uresham.
Other men bad apparently iieeu will
ing to spend their days and a large
portion of their nights In serving her
smallest ends, meetiug her least Impor
tant desires, but grave eyed Arnold
Cresbam, who had asked her to marry
him .and placed the betrothal ring 011
ber finger, had actually Insinuated that
hp was not sufficiently enamored of her
to play the role of doormat.
To be sure. It was uot Arnold who
had spokeu (hose words literally, but
Katherlne's brother Hob,. and the
words rankled. Arnold had merely
refused to break Important business
engagements to follow her In sudden
flight to Mrs. Croxton's house party in
the Adlrondacks. Aud on various oc
casions when she bad called up his of
fice on the phone he had been out
when be had said that he fully ex
pected to lie In all morning. If. during
their engagement, he was so indiffer
ent, what chance had she to queen It
over him after marriage? And Kathe
rine down In her willful beArt wanted
to qtieeu it over him as she bad
queeued It over all who had come her
way since babyhood.
Wherefore the Settlement house aud
Katherine seated In a deep window
ledge with Maggie Helaney, discussing
Saturday half holidays.
"It's fierce to get all your plans laid
«nd then have the lioss turn'eui all up
side down," Maggie was saying, with
tears very close to her big gray eyes.
"I wouldn't care so much for myself,
but Tom, he's sort of run down, and
he needs fresh air. We was going out
to Ridley's park, where you can get a
boat for 2.') cents sn hour, and the
music's fine. Tom he always takes a
nnp under the trees, and then we have
a row and a bite to eat, and he feels
Just fine for dancing. The dancing pi«
vllion at Ridley's Is Just grand."
"Are you fond of dancing?" Inquired
Katherine mechanically.
"Do I love to dance? Well, 1 guess
yea," answered Maggie enthusiastical
ly. "And since Tom sud me are en
gaged It seems sort of different. When
the band plays. Td Rather Twostep
Than Waltz, Bill,' seems like It ought
to bo 'Tom' Instead of 'BUI.' 1 could
Just dance right through life with Tom.
Funny what a difference it makes
when you know some one loves you!"
She looked up Inquiringly at her
companion's lovely face, but there was
no answering enthusiasm.
. "I really don't know how It feels,"
replied Katherine aa If her body tie
side the young factory girl had sud
denly been unlinked front the soul
which answered the question.
The mobile face of the factory work
er changed, and her voice softened.
"Of course I know It ain't Tom's
fault, but If he's ever going to make a
home for me and take me oaten the
factory he's got to stand In with his
boss. Ridley's or no Ridley's, we'll take
a trolley ride after supper anyhow, so
I guess I'll be moving on aud make a
new stock out of that lace you gave
me. Say, that's a lovely piece. I had
a mind to save It for my trousseau,
only It will please Tom If I have some
thing pretty aud new on. Might as
wall chirk him up a bit He's worse
disappointed than me."
The daughter of the rich and the
factory worker went out of the door
together. At the corner they paused
before separating.
"I wish you'd take this to your
Tom," said the Impulsive young heir
ess. "There's a lovely little restaurant
In the park. Tel) Tom to take you
there for dinner." She opened her gold
mesh purse and hauled out a crisp,
clean bill. The factory girl flushed
and drew back.
"Tom ain't that sort He'd never
take money from a woman."
The young heiress saw ber mistake.
"Well, then, give It to soma one you
think might not be able to afford a
half holiday trip—some one who has
no Tom to take ber ot#." And she
sprang on board a waiting trolley car
before Maggie could reply. The car
stopped at the next corner.
_;'"Thls car goes to Ridley's park?" de
manded an elderly woman.
"Tea'm. Step lively!" yelled the con
ductor.
"Ridley's park!" Why, that was
where Maggie and Tom bad planned
to go. Katherine felt -a "sudden whim
to see the pleasure ground of the
young people among whom she had
worked during the past week. She
would go to Ridley's park.
Away the car bowled, stopping now
and then, but less frequently as the
suburbs were reached. Aud U seemed
to Katherine that at every stop more
Maggies and Toms scrambled aboard,
all with au air of golden anticipation
that she had never Celt at prospect of
an automobile tour -or garden party.
80 absorbed was she in watching the
half holiday crowd (hat she did not
notice the attention she was attracting
from a group of half tipsy youths who
had dubbed her "the queen" and were
daring each other to "pick up the
peach."
At Ridley's park she felt oddly dizzy
with the coufualou. Perhaps"she had
worked a hit too bard at the Settle
ment house. Perhaps she bad not eat
en enough. At any rate, when they
reached the park entrance, and the
crowd shoved ber this way and that,
and the three youths clustered around
her and paid her loathsome compli
ments, she wondered whether she
should faint or scream aloud. Sudden
ly a mau iu uniform shoved the leer
tug youths aside and touched Iter el
bow deferentially.
"Where do yon want to go. miss?"
inquired the trolley Inspector, for such
lie was.
"Home, borne," exclaimed the tired
girl, with a touch of hysteria In her
voice.
"Car on the third track," said the
luspector laconically, and he put her
aboard.
Once out of the crowd, with the cool
lug west v|Jnd fauulng ber face, Kathe
rine felt better. She understood now
why Maggie felt that Tom—big, pro
tecting Tom—bad given the girl a new
view of life.
It must tie dreadful to be alone and
unprotected lu the world. Now, If Ar
uold had only lieeu different. If he had
not been so absorbed In business. Then
suddenly a feeling that had never come
to Katherlue Morgan liefore obsessed
her. Had Arnold ever really neglected
her? Had lie ever (refused her his at
tendance save when she willfully
cbauged her mlud or made childish de
mauds on his time? She remembered,
too, that her father said something
about a sbsky market, possibilities of
a panic, the need of conservatism, etc.
They bad nil been meaningless terms
lu her moment of anger, but now she
understood If Arnold meant to take
her "outen the factory" he must stand
in with Ills boss, too, and Aruold's boss
was "the street." Something bright
aud round fell from Katherlne's eye to
the gloved baud she raised hastily as a
screen, and then It happened—crushing
• beams, crackling glass, shrieking wo
men and groaulng men.
Wheu Katherine woke up she was in
Arnold Gresbam's big touring car aud
Arnold Oresliam's face was very close
to bam. \N
"How did you ge(|off?" she Inquired
dully, feeling as If she hail been cbung
ed into Maggie Delany and Maggie's
Tom bad come to the rescue.
"1 went down to the Settlement bouse
for you, found you had left with one
girl, and another told me she bad seen
you board the car for Ridley's park. I
was Just following you out—when I
saw (lie collision ami thought I might

Katherine laid her bead contentedly
on Gresbam's still trembling shoulder.

nold, dear, take me home."
Spoonsful and Mouthsful.

And for the present that controversy

very sure to wake up ere long and
vex us Yet I cannot refrain from
citing one word of that class which,
strange to sny, has hitherto been over
looked in the controversy and which
yet ought to lie decisive of it. That
word Is mouthful. Now, If the advo
cates of spoonsful, etc., have any pre
tensions to consistency they must
doubtless maintain that the proper
plural of this word Is mouthsful. Well,
If so I would only submit that If any
person should be directed to take a
