Kven sitcli a ciihislrophe an last year's drouth does not furnish ailc- qitati, justification for thousands of our licople having had to depend for months upon the charity of residents of distant stales for food lo keep them alive. It is to be doubted if any corner of the earth's surface is heller adapted by virtue of soil or climate lo provide a comfortable living for its people than is -Mississippi county. We have had a drouth, and we sull'er- cd severely from its eli'eeU; there lias been a business depression, and it has affected us-; lint the fundamental reason why men and women and children have been h.ungiy in Mississippi county this winter is because we, the |):ople of this county, failed lo make real use of our resources. If, as a result of Hie difficulties we have b:cn through, \vc have learned that earning a living is a twelve months job, that a fanner cannot ho]>c, year in and year out, to support his family by the few months work required lo cultivate a patch of 1 collon, we need nol f;ar a rendition of the winter of 103031. If many of us are satisfied lo go aloiiK in the old track, hoping to make money by growing cottoii alone'instead of milking sure of a living from our land, nothing i.s more certain than that disaster will strike again.

This is a natural ami inevitable move. The United Slates would do the same thiujr in the same situation. There ni'o limes and occasions when national ;mbargos are jtistilied. Jlul except in war time, they arc rare. And sometimes when an embargo i.s justilied as a weapon ot dt'fuiise, it may not be wisa. An embargo on imiwrts is a two- edged sword. It cuts the other fellow; then In- retaliates. If we won't buy his goods, he won't buy our.-;. An embargo used for business strategy usually benefits a small minority at the expense of a large majoviiy. More trade with all nations, not less, is what we need. Nations grow rich by trading with each other. One tiling wrong now with international business is unnecessary trade barriers.
