HM The Boy Wbo Made Good N E^Y YORK, August 2.—The long delayed" uprooting: of the old. down-town postofflee removes about t&eJast of familiar land-marks ou the lower nub of the island. A glowering I pile, the tobacco brown strac- jfiure fnally goes the vray of] the Astor House and the ium-j ble-doTrn that was the Even-| ag Mail building. The old postofiice seemed eternal in its incorrigible shab- Ibiness but there was something about it, like a mill by a brook, j that furnished a sentimental tiig among surrounding spires. The northern side teas flanked by one of the town's shortest \ thoroughfares—Mail street. j Through it always swirled a i of breeze and on sultry days dis- j ciples of Park Row used to quit journalizing j cot r«ssx>es!b!b* rer copy j»ai«»:oa. j efforts to go there to cool off- A platform for j «r«jr* ,. . m«» . -, " ags provided a country depot effect j temporary loafers swapped yarns and j t smoked eisrareiies. <L*;;t5jf\p!ts7r> ] David Graham Phillips once made it the; ^ <a^5s^ T exeitiiiir locale of a short mystery.

The merchant* be<an to prepare for tb.« opening of trade.' bankers checked ov«r the note eases in preparation for payments toy borrowers, some of tne stores employed additional salespeople and everybody felt better. The wagon carrying the bale, before the day of trucks, would be driven on tne public square, where all cotton was sold then, and even it if was in the night th*re would soon be a crowd around to ask where the cotton was grown, who owned it and other information •which was later featured in the newspapers.. For many years there was no definite premium offered but always a self-constituted committee would make the rounds of the stores and solicit contributions to the premium fund, which ranged from two bits to several dollars, the total sometimes running up to fifty dollars or more. For this reason the competition to bring in the I first 'bale was keen. Some years ago the chamber of commerce 6e- gran offering the premium so thai the merchants woiiia not be called on and this has continued. The News files record the date of the arrival of the first b,<il<?s each year from 1S92^—forty-two years agro. The lale^ that came in Monday evening was unusually j early — in fact. The Kews re-o-ci \ o\vs only one other arrival in f July. That was in 2595 and the bale ' was grown near Koxton from' seed planted on March i". St. Patrick"* day. arid the bale came in July 11 of that year. The next earliest bale, according to the same rec'ofds. arrived Aug. ». 19*5. and waa grown by I. M- Thompson south of Petty. It wa* brought in the seed to the Buna' gah gin, in Paris and turned, out 4SS pounds which sold for ti cent*. There was a bale received August 4. 2S9T, grown near Deport and in 1902 the first bale came In Augu*t 6. grown near Roxton. A bal* from Lake Creek. Delta, county, cam*, here the same day. T5e latest date shown by this record was the the year The" New* began to keep it. the arrival that year 1S92, being August 30. it wmm unusually late. The first bale in I^amar** biggest cotton season. 1900. came on August S* from the Howland section, and for a time it looked auTtT that bale would hot have much company, as the prospect wajt about as poor at that time as was ever known. After the storm of September 8 that year, which almost destroyed Galveston and took an estimated 6.000 lives, cotton be?ran to put on bolls and one of the Jarsrest crops* ever grown was marketed. Lamar county does not depend entirely on cotton nowadays as.she once did. so the first bale is not the interest-making affair It oisce was. but it is still important enougli to be noted to to, fn a.' measure, mark the beginning of ,a better business season. Readers' Views To The News: If the editor -will be so kind to us sp&cs in The Xe^w-s we •n,-ou2d like to comment on a part of the eeJirorla! in ^h^ issue of Tuesday. Jaly 31. Not m the war o* criticism but to enlarye on -what lie had to say with reference to si a ins. H"* says that Paris like all other small cities has no secifons that may be called slums, at least respect to the meanins of the term in large citJes. We want to state some facts as they exist and have existed for several years in scrne sections in Parts and leave it to Ihe "people of Paris to decide •whether or not we have slutas. by coiisultinir oar dictionary that the first definition Of slums is a foiil street of a city, another is a low neighborhood. In •sorns sections in Paris there art times when a. lady in passing on the s!d«wa.!ks is compelled to leave the sidewalk in order to get around a bench who have consre^iued In front of one 01 their hang-oats and at the same Jin* hear all idnds of x-ulerarity and pro£aae language. TVe have rd conversations in some of these sections tfotwfrsu both colored and -whites xvaere such language was used so vlls that it csTir.ot be published. \Ve have sat on our front porcfe and seen the officers, both police ar.d sheritTs force make a raSd on ssoine of thes« "house* ajsd leans from then; later that a!! the~ ^dt •was zr. empty fruit Jar wb!ch had contained whislcy and &ad just beer. emptied Into th« romode.
