B o. ' «.HV holds ,.rl.....p:.Mi y . ,j ,.,..., t ',. nch H owl. men and U When tlie whole world was. breathless with panic at the outbreak of war in August, 1914, the cotton farmer of the South saw bankruptcy and poverty nearer on. the horizon, perhaps, than many a farmer in- the warring Gentries. Cotton, known as the "king of crops" was dethroned and abased. As if by magic, fourteen months later, cotton on the New York Exchange rose to twenty cents a. pound, and the question asked,-was not "when will it drop?" but "where will it stop?". "•"•"" . :. In THE LITERARY DIGEST for December 9th, the wide-sweeping .Editorial reports from every ^section of the cotton-^rowin^ belt are shown. To the "man in the street," who is not fumiiiar with the very strong position which cotton occupies among American products, this account is h6ii7B$ to prove .enlightening. ... King . Cotton's'-marvelous "conic-hack" reads almost like a fairy tale. From fields nodding drowsily in \vhite through the summer, he draws royal revenues "which he spends with royal profusion in so many various channels that his spending operates for the benefit of the whole country, This is why East, West, artcf South, everybody is i nlerested i n th6 restof atibn. There*are several illustrations from original'photographs. • Besides this important review of the ..cotton'., situation, "The. Digest" is particularly rich this week in other articles of interest, a few of which are: Feed America First Will An Ejnbargo Be Placed Upon »FoocMuffr By the Neiit -CongreM ?
