Drainage District 17 Tlio progress and rii-osiicrily of lliu city of Uryllievillo and all of its jioo- ple, as well as of thousands of farmers and land owners in a great strip of territory renchiiiK from Uull'mmi id- most to Loiianlo, are closely hound to Drainage District 17. It was the drainage system provided by this district and others that converted the major part of Mississippi county from swamp lands into protttic- , tivc farms. Without the maintenance of this drainage system on an effective basis thousands of acres will revert to swamps. The district, due in part perhaps to errors in engineering ov in management, and certainly in large measure to a series of Hood disasters and to the depressed condition of agriculture, now finds itself in a position where it is unable to meet its obligations to the pur- cliasa's of its bonds, and unable to assure adequate drainage for a substantial part of the 'lands within its boundaries. Interests of both bondholders and land owners demand that some sort of agreement be reached under which the district will be enabled to provide and maintain an adequate system, even- though that may involve substantial delay in payment of interest.and principal to bondholders. Without such an agreement land owners will lose because their lands will shortly he without adequate drainage, a condition in which some of them already lind themselves. -And as that situation develops the bondholders will also lose, because .if Ihu lands nvo to be permitted to revert to swamp the taxes will not be paid, and funds to meet'obligations to bondholders, already inadequate due to tax delinquencies, will become even less adequate. We do not know just what land owners of the district can be expected to do at the mass meeting called for next Friday morning. Rut at least it will give them an opportunity to become acquainted with the situation facing the district, and thus prepare them to give support to whatever program may be worked out. The important things arc to preserve the district on an ef- fectiva basis, and to avoid any unjust burden upon the taxpaying laud owners of thq district, and to ndiiovi; these ends every iiiluresk'd person should lju willing to cooperate. We. Must Cooperate The difficult thing about the federal farm board's cooporiitivs ni^'kULiiig program is that it cannot show results for any commodity until a very substantial iiumln-r of the producers of that commodity liave given it their support. Farmers, remembering unfortunate experiences in Hie pasl, want to be shown. Hut if tney wait to be shown they will be disappointed, because the movement is just what its name indicates—a cooperative- undertaking— and without cooperation, which in this instance means llii> active participation of farmers it is designed to bene- lil, it cannot achieve real success. Fortunately the program has been so designed thai the individual farmer can give it his support without ser- iou.s risk. He lu-ed not pledge more than a small part of his crop, he binds himself for only two years, and he lias the assurance thai affairs of the cooperative organizations will have the supervision of the ablest men the United States government can find. To the cotton growers of Mississippi county and of southeast rMissotin the Courier News repeats: Let's give this tiling a chance. It can be of great bcnelit to every producer of cotton if it succeeds. It. will never help n.s it' we don't help make it edectivc. The way to do that is to join the association.

It is possible ny thumping the chest to outline roughly the borders of the heart and thus to know whether It is enlarged or smaller than H ought to be. It Is, however, possible by use of the X-ray to determine the borders of the heart exactly. It Is possible by listening to the heart to determine whether or not the valves are functioning 'satisfactorily and to know whether it is likely that they are constricted, thus permitting an insufficient amount of blood to pass through: or dilated, permitting blood to leak back after it has passed through. When such changes occur murmurs arise which can be heard by a stethoscope. "Oh, all books are such bargains now, 1 just take the first i ones I tome to."
