Incidentally we few thai of all ll'O professions that of a good cook receives the least recognition and pecuniary reward. cooks are infinileiy more scarce than good stenographers.'

ROOS Green and Wet and Graded Strict Low Middling But Brought 20 14 Cents. The firsl bale of Victoria County cotton of the 1929 crop was ginned at Nursery this morning and mark- eted in Victoria this afternoon. The bale was raised by D. Qua- jardo, a tenant on the J. E. Henry farm near Nursery, and was gin- ned by the Nursery Gin Company. It weighed 448 pounds .and graded strict low middling, due lo being green and-wet. The bale was pur- chased by R. B. Roos of the Roos Mercantile Company of this city at 20 1-4 cents, or a quarter of a cent more than the middling price, quot- ed here today and over 5 cents more than the strict low middling quotation of 15 cents. This is one of the many first bales that Mr. Roos has purchased. He also has led in raising premiums for the farmers producing the first bales and is now -circulating a premium list for this season's grower. Last season's first bale also came from the Nursery section and was marketed on July 18, eleven days earlier. It was grown by Rafael Cavazos on Mrs. H. C. Kyle's farm and ginned by the South Texas Cot- ton Oil Company gin at Nursery. The 1927 first bale was raised by Depine brothers west of town and was ginned on July 9, or nearly three weeks earlier than today's bale.
