The Lady of Nations free pdf Excerpt from The Lady of Nations The British army in Mesopotamia is supplying itself with nearly everything but clothing and munitions by the simple process of irrigating the land which the Turks have left desert for centuries. British engineers and native workmen have put a barrage - not of shells, but of earth and willow mats - across the Tigris, raised the water level, cleared out the ancient canals or dug new ones, and turned the vitalizing current on the desolate, thirsty acres. As a result, the natives are enjoying greater prosperity than at any time for the last 400 years, and the British army at Bagdad is provided with cereals, vegetables and largely with meat without drawing on a single precious ton of the world's too scanty shipping. It is a magnificent achievement, and one likely to have important and far-reaching consequences. To hand back this newly created garden for the Turks to turn into a desert again is manifestly impossible. Mesopotamia must remain under British or interallied control, that its peoples may be protected and its resources developed. But this means that our southern states had better have a care, or they will lose their present monopoly of the worlds chief clothing material. Lower Mesopotamia is one of the finest cotton growing regions in the world. It is particularly well-fitted for growing the long staple Egyptian cotton, which brings a much higher price than the ordinary American variety. Egypt has been developed till it produces from 1,200,000 to 1,500,000 bales of this fibre per year, but Mesopotamia is several times as large as Egypt, and fully as fertile. Lack of capital, lack of labor, lack of transportation all will conspire to make the cotton development of the country slow, but with stable and honest government, all these difficulties will be overcome at last, and the south will have a competitor who can really compete.
