Tile article fails to point (Hit, however, Unit under tile marketing methods prevailing in this vicinity it does not necessarily follow that the pioducci who takes the trouble to sec that hit. cotton reaches tjio/nin in good condition \\ill gel the benefit of this additional value. The gins, which buy .1 laige pail of. the cotton, pay a good .Xtul sometimes n high average pi ico liul foi the most part it i.s it puce based on average value rather than on the line value of each individual bale. The tendency is to re\\i\n\ the pioducci whoso cotton is below avenge in staple and gnulc and to penalize the grower whose cotton is of bcllci th,in average (juality.' For fear of driving away business, most gmnois hesitate to put a price penally on cotton that is only slightly belov, the a\erage. Hut if they don't penah/e the, inferior bale they can't all'ord to pay a premium for the supcnoi bale The,result is that they give the giouci .'little incentive to kup up the quality of his product. 'Jhe injustice to the producer • of a higli.qudilj piodticf is not perhaps a ni.iUei <oi^ tijemundoiis iiipmcnt. / Hut the (emluhey of lheVysKim !| is J lo'clc-' prt&b the a\ciage ()uality of cotton produced,in the community and to injure its reputation nniong the buy- eis, of the country. The gins have- gone to great lengths to oil'set this iu- jiuy by ins-tailing expensive drying and cleaning equipment, designed to turn out smooth ,in 1 clean lint from damp and trash laden seed cotton. That is nil to the good. Rut it does not result in a pioducl equal .in quality and value^o that which!would result from caiefuf picking The' problem is one which deserves the consideration of all who arc concerned in the production and marketing of cotton. The producer should le.mi not onl\ how to produce a good product, but to know its value. And gmueib, uho iciUiinly have a substantial slake in the future progress and prosperity of the cotton industry, should consider means of developing a marketing system which would cn- OUT'OUR WAY courage rather than discourage all possible effort on the part of the producer to hold up quality, The Georgia Primary Congratulations are due the Democratic voters Of Georgia upon Ihc spanking which they administered to Gov. Eugene Talmadge in their senatorial primary yesterday. The two-lo-one victory which Sen- alor Richard H. Russell jr. won over the governor is gratifying as a vole of confidence in the Roosevelt administration, which was supported by Russell and bitterly condemned by Talmadge, But it is a great deal more llirtii that. It is a resounding rebuke to all demagogic attempts to ..capilal- ixe ignorance and .prejudice .for political purposes. It should hold' a lesson for others who may imagine thai the way to public preferment and power is through playing down to Dm lowest denominator ,pf popular intelligence.

Journal of the Ameririn iUnllcal Auaciation, and of lly- ijeln, the Health Magazine Probably most stgniliciuit, of all U'-'ins in the family medicine ch"-.' are laxatives anil cathartics. I \\-ili describe some of those most coin- in only used. liEDin sails is an oM-Ta'shiont I remedy which acts by collectni' fluid In the bowel. It is best taken on arising—about, one tablespoon- of salts In a half glass of \varm water. Several hours 'will bs••" rerjnlrert " for Its'- action. The scientific name of Epsom sails is magnesium sulphate. Some people prefer the milder acting Glauber's salts, or sodium sulphate. II, Is not, however, so popular as Epsom salts, and not nearly so popular as a milder product known as sodium phos- |)hate. icvliuiii phosphate is less disagreeable and also less active thiin cither mugm-sium sulphate or^so dluin sulphate. Most IrcciiifiUh tills product is used in an vcsi-ent form, made by mix! live Ingredients of so:tiuin plios- pliiitc with the less active sodium bicarbonate, tartaric acid, and citric acid. * » • Much milder still is citrate! of magnesia. This is a mild saiine laxative, usually ordered by the bottle. It is customary to take half of the contents of the bottle on arising, and ' the rest later, if needed. Among the most active of all cathartics is castor oil, likely to produce a battle in any home where. It is the common cathartic for the children. Castor oil is an effective and prompt cathartic which cbans out the system so thoroughly that its use is likely to be fallowed by constipation. Modern castor oil fortunately is available In a tasteless variety and also flavored with oil of wlntergrccn. * , * * The chief danger from cathartic's and laxatives such as have been mentioned is their possible use in the presence of severe pnbi in the bowel, which may b= 111? tjrst si"ii of appendicitis. t is a goc-il rule nevr: In take a cathartic of any fcincl for abdominal pain unless the cause 1 of the pnin Is known.

J ' ANS FLIGHT CHAP rut I "JUIE llirec girls sal in the office of Central Airport, hands folded primly in their laps, waiting to be interviewed. Each held a newspaper with a photograph of the prelty stew- artless who had. lost her life in an automobile accident the <\ay before. The news meant, in this liishly competitive, present-clay world, that a job was open and, out ot the mass of young women who malte their own way in the world, these three had appeared almost instantly. ^ Each of (hem wanted lhat job. Ted Graham, veteran pilot of Trans-Pacific Airways, eyed the three curiously. He had gazed at danger so long (hat, for him, it no longer existed. But it was otherwise with these girls. What did they know, what could they know of tlic hazards and hardships of the life they seemed so eager to embrace? The veteran pilot speculated about this. He had learned lo read laces —and lo learn from them. Graham was wailing now to sec the chiet of the personnel division of Overland Airways. As an old friend and chief pilot of Trans-Pacific Airways, Teci Graham might have walked boldly into the inner office and said, "Hello, Charlie. How's tricks? Instead he waited his turn. Pa- licnce had been the first lesson lie bnd mastered in learning lo fly, and he guarded Ibis secret jealously. The three girls had reached the office firsi. Ted Graham, therefore, crossed one leg over the oilier, leaned bnck ill bis chair, and waited. In repose, his tanned, leathery face showed quiet resolution. It was a face, loo, that showed the marks of peril and danger. Some might have called it hard, but friends knew there was a smile lhat, when it broke through, showing a of white teeth, was unfailingly captivating. The pale blue eyes that had seen so much danger, gazed over such distances, Vetrayed a gentle nature. A brisk young man came out of the personnel chief's office and signaled to one of the girls. LoSk- ing at the card in his hand, he said, "Right this way, Miss Dunn." The girl addressed stood up and walked toward the door. First of all, Ted Graham noticed her splendid carrinsc. She walked almost like a fashion model and her Krccnish eyes flashed with animation and spirit. '• *t * SUDDENLY (he sccrcinry spied Graham and cxHaimcd t.Tn- sively, "Why, Mr. Graham!" lie turned again to the s;irl, "I'm sorry," he began, "1 rii,|,vt know Ted Graham was here. You'll have to wait—' Ted stood dp,, and Kay Dunn turned to look al him more closely. She, as well as the other girls, knew, of course, who Ted Crib,™ was. They had read of his exploils in the air. Kay's eyes met Graham's. She . didu;t.watU to .wait, but.she had a disciplined mind and a seme of humor, loo. She bowed prettily to Mr. Ted Graham who, by ail the precepts she knew, deserved precedence. He had conquered the' ii'-.. Ted spoke lo her directly, and slio noticed his p.ilc blue eyes. "No, no," he said. "You go in first, Miss—Miss—" ''Dunn," Kay supplier! with a nod and gesture lie thought charminp;. "Bui really—" Suddenly Gra- iiam's eyes shone.

He drew- t.p haughtily, and winked. himscll "Give her the job, Charlie!" He laughed, and went on, in matter-of-fact lone. "I'm in no hurry at all.
