The theory has been that UIL> south will vote Democratic whoever may be the candidate, but that the north will not give sufficient support to a southern Democrat to permit his election. These wise men, despite a long record of Republican corruption, blundering, and general misgovornment, in nearly seventy years have succeeded in electing just two Democratic presidents. Their theory may be perfectly correct, but its application has not achieved any notable clcgrea of political success. Some day the party will muster up the courage to nominate its best man, regardless of geographical considerations, and maybe it will get a surprise. The Courier News has long been nn . admirer of Senator Joe T. Robinson. . Wd would not pose .him as u genius, a super-expert in public affairs like the present dcnixen of the White House, but he is equipped with sound good ' sense, years of experience in national business, and qualities of character and , iiersonality that win for him an unusual degree of public confidence, j It would be an exceedingly broad • statement to describe Joe Kobinson or ' any other man as the one outstanding leader of the party, its best man for • the presidential nomination. But certainly he is one of a very few entitled to serious consideration for the post. All we ask for him, all his closest • friends in Arkansas can ask for him, is thai his qualifications be judged completely apart from the fact lhat he is a resident of a parl of the country where it is not necessary to win Democratic-votes on the ground that the candidate is a home town boy who deserves a break. AI Smith's defeat in New York, and the failure of Davis to carry West Virginia afford pretty good evidence that considerations of lhat kind do not control very many votes anyway.

Reports from ar.nmil the county say thai folks are gelling over their initial resentment at the f>0 cent price for picking, and are ready to Ret to work. That is a good tiling. Fifty cents a hundred is not much pay fur picking cotton, and people can scarcely lie blamed I'm 1 nol liking it. But with conditions as they are lots of folks are going to have In lake lot.s of lllings they don't like. Kverybody connected with farming this year is lak- ing at least a HO per cent cut and often more, and the man who is going lo be lucky to find himself still in Ihu funning business next year is not lo be blamed for doing what is necessary to keep his head above water. We have a hunch that Mississippi county's crop is gcing to prove bigger than a good many peopb expect But whether or nol thai is true il is nol going to bo, a big crop. It is enough, however, to furnish a lot of employment lo our own people. The welfare of the whole communily demands that they take il and make the most out of it, and that growers, on the other hand, do their part by not bringing in pickers from outside. We need everything this year's crop will produce at home.

SIDE GLANCES By George Clark IJATTU: or S On September 12, 1918, tlie American army, under General Persh- 1ns. successfully tarried out Its Ural operation in the World Wai when it emerged victorious ul tlu Uutllc of St. Mihiel. The Americans were badly handicapped by deficiencies in artillery, aviation and sp-'dal troops, but thEse were met largely by the French. It was the regular Infantry brigade o[ the 2nd lhat did the attacking, and its assignment was the I hardest. Tills brigade covered six miles c( hilly and dillicult country In less than ni;ie hours and cap Hired more than 3000 prls'jar/s an.', much material, Including live railroad trains. The speed of the Am- 1 erlcan advance had completely bal- ll'.d the Germans and they retreated. This was the first battle under American command and it was a most auspicious beginning. American casualties. including the French tvuops involved, were.about 7000. The German prisoners numbered M.43D with 4« guns. The report oi the bailie In the Infantry Journal said in part: "The mist Intense concentration artillery ever recorded was tint of i the American troops in the Ba'.tle j oi St. Mihiel, when our artillery j fired more than l.OOO.CCU shells in f four hours."
