Fortunes In Rarming Lands.
We have for years been try
ing to persuade the investing
public that there was nothing
more profitable to do with money
than to buy South Carolina farm- 1
ing lands with it. The capitalist
who had taken this trip ten, or
even five years ago, would now
have a fortune in profits. From
%ne end of the State to the other
come reports of sales of lands at
prices which would have seemed
fairly fabulous but a few years
There are few men who gave
any attention to such matters
who have not known of excellent
farming lands, which could have
been be ught within the periods
we have mentioned for twent.,
ten, or even less, dollars per acre.
These same lands can scarcely be
had to-day for double and triple
those pr:ices even at cash. In ad
dition to this the best farming
lands in many counties have been
sold for ae much as $200 the acre.
These are statements of fact
that are within. the personal
knowledge of people throughout
the State. The marvellous
change in values that has taken
place has resulted primarily from
the high prices cotton has been
bringing for the last two years;
but the wonderfnl general indus
trial development among us has,
of course, also made power
fully in the same direction. And,
while some of the cream has thus
been skimmed from the opportu
nity to which we have so fre
quently called the attention of in
vestors, the rewards have not all
been won by any means. The
prospects for high and even higher
levels in the cotton industry are
excellent. The patient work of
building up the waste places of
the State which has been going
forward silently and, on the whole,
swiftly, is just beginning to be
fully requited. Money may still
be invested in farming lands in
this and other Southern States
with a minimum risk and a max
imum of opportunity for profit.
Gratifying as our present situa
tion, there is every reason to be
lieve that agriculture in the South
is about to come back into its
own once more. It is a word
which is spoken to the wiee at
home, as well as abroad, in the
land.-News and Courier.
A Fearful Fate.
It is a fearful fate to have to
endure the the terrible torture of
Piles. "I can truthfully say,"
writes Harry Colson, of Mason
ville, Ia.,4'th'at for Blind, Bleed
ing, Itching- and Protruding Piles,
-Bucklen's Arnica Salve is the
best cure made." Also best for
cuts, burns and injuries. 25c. at

It i nottooearly to consider holi

seems a problem, but it need not this
year. Our buyer has just returned
from the northern markets, and a more
select stock can not be found anywhere.
Everything new in the Jewelry line as
well as the regular staples are here.
Our handsome Brooches and Waist
Pins of heavy 14k gold, beautifully en
amelled in delicate autumn leaf tints',
will please the most fastidious. Our
ladies here are enthusiastic over their
beauty. GoldNeck Beads are growing
more popular every day, and to be in
style you should have a Gold Bead
Nechlace. We have them in several
sizes of beads, small, medium and
large, also in double strands. Prices in
gold filled $2.75 to $5.50; in solid gold,
$8.00 to $20.00. Gold Bracelets are agamn
in vogue. The most popular is the
Nethersole, a plain, substantial brace
let, in style similar to an overgrown
wedding ring. Some slip over the hand
and others have joints and clasps, so as
to open for putting on; made in this
way they fit more snugly around the
wrist. The Signet Bracelet, with place
for init ials or monogram, is also a pop
ular style. Price in gold filled, $2.50 to
$5.00; in solid gold, $5.00 to $20.00.
