A drive into the country the other day disclosed the fact that there is yet plenty cotton to be picked. Looking over rows there appeared to be very little on the ground as the plants were in heavy foliage, thus protecting much fruit from serious damage. As the ground is very wet and boggy cotton picking will be delayed, but a few days of sunshine will make picking easy. Of course the draws and low places cotton is not so promising. But under most the promising conditions it is hard to tell how a crop will turn out until gathered and sold.
Hiram Hogan arrived home last Saturday. He recently landed and received his discharge from the army. He was last stationed in Germany where he was with the Remount Division, having charge of horses and mules of the American Army, which were sold to German citizens. Hiram says the prices averaged better than $300 a head in gold for the animals, many terms bring as high as $1,000. Hiram is about the last one of the Caddo boys to come home. There remains Freeman Beaty and John Droke, but they are in the regular army and their terms are not yet out.
