Loin; experience has proved this. The early flal- jMtfomed little Western River steamboat of a typo made familiar by old prints and magazines was entirely resconsible for building up that enormous cotton trade in the lower Mississippi Valley which, as long ago as pre-Civil \Vnr limes, put the South on Its feet commercially. Later, court declared Irpally dead. Mrs Miilkcv came the bis palatial j~- steamboats In the seventies. ei2h- fj . ties, and nineties—flatbottomed, like l< their predecessors. Famous oid l : ; steamboats whose names arc writ- ji ten in gold in the history of the \'- Mississippi River, were noted as iv cotton carriers. The Robert E. Lee i' carried 5000 bales. The J. M •A While 6000 The Grand Republic i| 7000. The old sternwhecl Henry '* Frank, a long lanky greyhound of : D a boat, astounded the world one •i. time when she came booming down :; to New Orleans, with 9220 bales of up over me. I saw his uplifted salx".' nnd then I saw him start lo swing. "I was on one knee, so I leaned over n. r . far as 1 could when he rushed by. But I heard i swish and frit n stlniln; ssnsallon In mile ft ride. When t noticed thc b!oo:l on my Innlc I knew I'd bsvu slashed. 1 trial (o gel up—but couldn't. "Then I saw a cloud of dust cnm- 1 Ing from the other direction. The 1 ' RiiTs had stampeded our park camels. They conic Ihumlnin; awkwardly towards n:e. Then everything went black." Ma::y duys later Godbey a\voke n an Algiers hospital. As he regained consciousness he was told hat the saber blade had missed a :ital spot by barely an inch. !iul ho uouiulli)'.; camels had broken both nrms. snapped seven ribs anil j crushed his pelvic bone.

No ether craft than a flatbotlom river vessel could have served ti- eld-time cotton trade so cfliderit !;•• The ol<!< steamboats could nose bank at any place along the Misskiippl shcrc. push their snub noses up to Ihc landings of the various cotton planters, load thc cotton, and take it on to market In these days of improve*.! rivei terminals and concentration point! where farmers and manufacturer: may bring their shipments to b loaded into barges, it is not neces sary for boats to rur, Into at each plantation or farm. A single modern barge tow like those moving on the rivers today can carry as many as 60,000 bales of cotton. Combining the advantages of modern barge tows and thc ad vantage also ol mcJern methods of loading shipping and consigning, which the old steamboats did not have, it is likely that history repeat Itself on thc Lower Mississippi and that a great river commerce in cotton win develop to thc benefit of cotton producers as well as manufacturers and ultimate .consumers. : —Mississippi Valley Ass'n siifTlclrntly to return to the Irgicn. : r>c-ror.itril for Hrrolsm With Marinrs in France This wasn't, the first time Onrlbrv I hail faced death-and lived to tell i auoul it.
