Ol\ can eat cotton\ has become the slogan of the forces engaged in en- throning still more firmly the Si unit's chief agricultural product. The South has Ill-en thrilled with the vi- sion of a farm crop which cannot only cloihe the world and provide the base for huge quantities of powerful explo- sives hut can supply food as well. Everyon knows the important part cotton is playing in the making of the high explosives needed to win titanic battles on land and sea. In recent years an ever increasing number of im- portant uses have been found for cottonseed and other waste. Cottonseed meal has been used for years In the preparation of fond for animals and in the making of conking compounds, but experi- ments made recently in Oklahoma and in other parts of the South have demonstrated that cot- tonseed meal when properly combined with other materials makes an acceptable flour, and can also serve as a substitute for meats, owing to Its rich- ness in protein. The hulls are now being used in preparing feed for live stock, and are consumed in enormous quantities. Another by-product which is serving the country well at this time is linters, the sbort lint removed from the seed in the course of its preparation for eating purposes. Linters are almost pure cellu- lose, which is the base of ope of the high explo- sives used in most of the armies and navies of vhe \world. And pound for pound, cottonseed will provide a* much lard as any hog. the seed from a bale of cotton yielding as much high-grade lard as five average hogs. The enormous increase in the demand for cot- ton, combined with conditions in America and other parts of the world which have reduced the available supply, assures the South a period of prosperity. When newspapers printed stories re- cently regarding the spectacular feat of cotton in climbing in 27 cents, the highest imint since 1S71. they gu\e but a hint of the prosperity which has been brought to the South bv ils war bride. corroir ct2Z372e&3<3 <^-ap Almost everyone recalls the slump in cotton which followed the opening of the war and bow, with cotton selling as low as five and seven cents a pound, the South arose as one man in an organ- ized \Euy-a-bale-of-cotton\ campaign which en- abled the cotton producers to tide their industry over the financial doldrums which resulted from the chaos of war. The manner in which cotton rebounded front this low mark makes it one of the huskiest war brides in America, with the possible exception of the munitions and allied Industries. \When cotton had reached IS cents last year there were certain optimists who were predicting 2fi-eenr cotton, and -they did not have To wait long for that miracle to come to pass. When King Cotton passed the 27-eent mark recently it marked the highest level of prices since the days imme- diately following the close of the Civil war, when Southern planters were able to obtain almost any price they asked for their cotton. It is believed that this prosperity will conrinue long after peace is restored. I'ntil the world's greatly depleted supply of cotton is replenished at least there should be no material change in the situation.

But for feeding his armies in barrack and trench, Tncle Sam lias become a domestic scientist who thinks In terms of nutritive values and a psychologist who realises that the stomach's digestive tuices will not respond unless the palate telegraphs its approval to the bruin. In the months to come, wdien our American \rolling kitchens\ are perched reasonably out of range on a scarred field somewhere in France and our boys from home are emptying their plates or a generous helping of \El Rnneho\ stPW. they may lift their bullet-proof helmets to the printed consoler, comforter and friend which has followed them to the trenches—the \Manual for Army Cooks,\ Issue of 1916. As a matter of history, the present volume of official recipes is about 11 dozen years old. It has been collected from many sources by many wise men adorned with uniforms and backed by gen- eral orders; but Its choicest and best originated in the InsUncflve Inimitable methods of Aunt Diana, who concocted her champion waffles by \jes' fastin'.\ In fact, a large majority of the good and fine points in Uncle Sam's dally menu for his Sammies Is due to an old commissary sergeant of Fort Riley, His name was Dunne, and he was one of those \born to the griddle,\ who has the same advantage over the ordinary aspirant lo kitchen honors that Kubellk had from birth over the lit- tle girl next door. He was not a man of education in the or- dinary acceptance of the word, but he was a first- Army Meal On scraps of wrapping paper or a copy of every recipe he hud • •hiss tinny cook, old bills he kept ever tried. These were edited by CI'IUIHI Hol- brook, then in command at Fort Riley, and pub- lished in a little hook called \Methods of Handling Army Rations.\ which was developed into the \M'liual lnr Army Cooks\ the textbook in Ihe ,..,.,,, v schools for cooks and bakers started in V.M111 by C.eneral Sbarpe, now quartermaster gen- eral. There is a legend to the effect that there are si vera! amusing musical diatribes against the army loud, but questioning of officers and men at the Washington Barracks school does not reveal them, HUH sergeant—one of the three \noncoms\ in line I'm- 1 heir commissions—said that when th\ i\oi] was bad the men \got llv-' growl\ and wouldn't sing al all. and when it was good they \fell Hue and sang the prettiest songs they knew.\ Ii is rather heartening to think that the men nui have the -ante food in Ihe field as they no In barracks. This is accomplished by the bakeries, wbl'-h are portable, easily taken down and ser up, and by tin- very remarkable \rolling kitchens,\ whb'h cook u meal as the army marches, having lunch or supper ready when the order comes to pilch i-aiiip. All of these kitchens have stoves lor hunting oil Mini also arrangements for the use of coal or wood, (me model, of which the govern- ment has ordered a great many, has two double boilers, where oatmeal, for instance, may be cooked as the big stove 011 wheels trails on supply wagon or truck. Also there are direct heat boil- ers where coffee may be made, or one of the many delirious stews, the familiar Irish, the savory \K\ Rarjcho\ (containing everything eatable on a ranch), or the very delectable American slew, in- vented on the Mexican border and the -first fa- vorile at Sammies' table. There is also an oven where a roast may lie brought lo a turn, and, as a surprise to you. a big, smooth plat\ where flapjacks come to life. One kitchen will feed 2fKl men, a war-strength nim- puii.v. and it will need three men lo operate It. Trailing each kitchen is a tireless cooker with four large compartments. These are very conven- ient In thai Ihe tIn receptacles fil either the stove or the tireless department and can be trunsferred without the bother of emptying of food from one vessel to another. There are now four regular schools f 1.- unity cooks—at Fort Sam Houston, Tex.; Fi;t Klley. Ivan.; \Monterey Cab. anil Washington barracks. The cantonments increased these schools many- fold. If lakes about four months of rigorous In- struction to make a first-class army cook, bin un- der the Intensive method the cantonment cooks will be educated In half this time. There are many very delicious and exceedingly efficient recipes in tlie \Manual for Army Cooks,\ and Fncle Sam gives his boys u\! three of their excellenl meals for an average of 40 cents a day. If the economy of 40 cents a kitchen could he brought into all American homes we would hear little of food conservation, for the utilization of every edible molecule Is nothing short of marvel- ous.

'Ji'ii.OfKi bales over the • rip of last year, but this is 4..\i0fl bales bss than the record- breaking crop of three years ago. Two new conditions in American agrieul- Itititl life are responsi- ble in the main for the 1 allure of this year's cotton crop to meet or c\ en puss the record of V.I14. Perhaps the one filt more commonly throughout the South has been the acute shortage of labor, due to the fact that many thousands of negroes have been enticed North into the numi- nous plants and factor- ies by the lure of high- er wages. It is obvious that N any general at- tempt to increase the cotton acreage would have resulted in an even more serious predicament for the cotton planters during the summer season. Another reason for the decline in production has been the strong pressure brought to bear upon the South to practice diversified farming. This has resulted in some states In a considerable de- crease in the cotton acreage in order that more corn, wheat, oats, hay and other food crops might- be grown, though these conditions are more or less local. The government is engaged In a cam- paign to interest the South in feeding itself, and many thousands of farmers who planted cotton almost exclusively have embarked in diversified farming in the last two years. The idea back of the diversified farming move- ment in the South is to make cotton the money- making crop, and to utilize corn and other staple farm crops to pay the expenses of operating the farm and to enable rhe South to produce enough foodstuffs to feed itself. Thus, a tenant farmer who has 40 acres in cot t#n would, provided he practiced diversified farming successfully, make from $a.ii'if) to .?5,0l)0 a year, all from the sale of his cotton. This would be net profit, but would not. of course, include the increased value given the' bind through the enrichment cf the soil by the erop-riita'i'!i plan. The average tenant farm- er who piucii.-es crop rotation well can double his ci.rten production within two or three years, it has been demonstrated. This gives food for speculation as to the possi- bility which would follow the general adoption of crop ibversitic.-iiion throughout the Smith. The average tenant farmer can grow barely more than one hale of cut ton to the acre, though with proper farming sitid fertilization he can increase this yield to three bales an acre, according to farming experts. However, nut all of the Sotilh- ern cotton fields are soil impoverislied and it would be doing the betrer-eUiss cotton planter an in.iusri-e to say that by proper farming he could double or triple his cotton crop. Of the .So.oiln.iMitl acres planted in cotton this year, a large percentage of the acreage could be so In- creased in fertility as to double the yield by llllb, provided crop rotation was followed out along the most modern lines. Willi better farming the South will thus be able to make its .\10.0011.(1011 acres or more do the work of from 4.-,.0(lO,ono to' 5O.O0fi,000 acres under the old plan. Any important reduction in acreage, therefore, is not to be looker] upon with alarm for there is certain lo be si consequent increase in production, barring unforeseen weather calami- ties. To this increased production must he added the millions (( f ilollars added to tlie wealth of the Sunlit liy the otlv-r farm products grown in in- creased quantities. The slogan. \The South Must Feed Itself,\ is the outgrow'h of this campaign for crop rota- tion as praerici'd in the North and West. Th« realization of rhls dream would add hun- dreds of millions of dollars to the wealth of the South alone, for almost all of the states will be- come xirodueers instead of consumers. Despite the enviable climate and the good soil possessed by Alabama th\re are many counties which spend one million dollars or more each year in import- ing outside foodstuffs. With the practice of di- versified forming it will be possible for every county In the state to export as much corn and other farm crops as it now imports. Some observers have taken the view, especially slnci- the entry of the United Slates Into the war has resulted in Increased activity in the di- versified farming campaign, that a serious blow- Is Intended at King Cotton, but such is not the case. The whole idea of the campaign Is not to uproot I In- chief Southern cruris for the Northern crops, but to rofale such crops as have soil- enriching values, so as to enable the Southern soil lo produce even greater cotton crops. He- cause of Its revolutionary character, the diversi- fied farming campaign has not made much prog- ress except In Alabama, Georgia and neighboring sttites. which have been adding lens of millions of ilollars to the value of their farm products each year in recent years. When the writ' sent corn and wheat to sky- high prices along wllh cotton. It proved much easier to enlist the sympathies of the Southern farmer, and many thousands of farmers are mak- ing more money growing hlgh-prlced corn and wheat lhan I hey did In growing cotton. This Is due chiefly to the relief given the soil by crop rotation, and such conditions will be even more common next season, when the soil rebuilding process adopted by nature Is given time to get well underway. Impetus has alone been given crop diversification by the shortage of labor. The most of these crops require less labor than cot- ton and can be tended more efficiently than cotton. -,ST WORD IN MACHINE GUNS ioven Hundred Shots a Minute Can Be Fired From the Newest Colt Automatic Piece.
