Constructive A news item from Kcnnctt, Mo., tells of the hiring .by tlic cotton gin- nevs of that city of* an expert dassisr, who will fix the value of cacti bale of cotton offered for sale to a sinner on the basis of grade and staple. This will be hard on the farmer of the Kennctt community who brings wet,'dirty, short staple cotton to town, but-it-mll-te-a-good-thing for the cotton. industry of lite KcnncU com- ifiuhity in general, for it will mean thai tho man who, produces a good bale of- .cotton will be rewarded while the man who .produces a poor one will be penalized. -. If Kennctt ginncrs slick to this plan farmers of that vicinity will soon be paying more attention to the (iii'ality of the seed they plant «wl hipre'iattention to the care with which'picked. Growers of jjood cotton" will benefitnit once, and ultimately tiic entire Community 'will benefit because Kennett cotton will achieve a reputation for quality that will be reflected in the price 'limits of cotton shippers buying in that territory. Some time ago a similar plitn wns suggested for Blytheville.' A majority of ginner.s favored it, but enough stood out against it to make it impractical to put it into effect. It would be <i good, thing for the cotton growers of this'.community, for the local ginning industry,' and for all of Blythi'ville, if arV.agreement on such n program could be reached. . When Optimism Failed Robert E. Farley, former prcsiilenl of the New York state Hotavy Club, was found hanging from a rafter in his home the other day. And what gave hia death R peculiarly tragic quality was the fact thai only three years ago he had written, for the Notary Club magazine, a code for living. In it he included these rule.s: "Don't worry—smile; laugh it oil; serve with sacrifice; do it now and have peace; relax—ease mind, nerves and muscles; do not get out of poise; get next-to God and stay there; think of the 'things that make you happy and not^of the things that make you .sad." * * » It.was a good code. Ho had it printed on- cards and hung them where he could ; see them constantly. And somehow;, when things went very badly wrong, the code stems to have been a broken reed. There arc philosophies lliat will curry a man through almost any despondency; this one, apparently, wasn't of that kind. And one is morai to wonder if OIL- code did not, perhaps, share a little loo greatly in a very common American fault—llio habit of persistently looking only on the bright side of ihings. Such admonitions as "laugh it <)li'" and "think of Hie things thai make, you happy" arc very line when all one's troubles are minor ours. Hut most of us aren't lucky enough to have only that kind of trouble. Sooner or later we get badly bumped: and when w;> do we are apt lo go under unless we liavc learned how to look (lie very worst in the fitt'c without Ilinchiiig.
