A grown man who tries to
mend a mud hole in the public
road with uncrushed stone
ought to be indicted for obstruc
ting the public highway. One
who tries to mend a mud hole
on the public highway with
sand or top earth ought to be
exempt from road tax for two
years. Any man who will mend
a mud hole with sand or top
earth -can have a certificate of
good moral character fron ali
who need the road. A dead
horse, tender to the delicate taste
of a frazzled wing buzzard, is
fragrant compared to a yawn
ing, hungry mud hole.
Carmack ..being dead vet

of his taking off has set the
mark of Cain upon the brow of

and passion put on Tennieesee.
Good for the illiterate, ignorant
jury. Not as ignorant as some
supposed. If ignorant of what
it ought to do, then truly, was
it folly to be wise. The verdict
was a great surprise to many.
So much unjust criticism has
been flung at juries by the
newspapers, that few people ex
pect a righteous verdict. It is a
great relief to have the curtain
rung down on such a tragedy.
Rual Telephone Lines,
The Southern Bell Telephone
Company is doing all it can to
place 'phone service in the reach
of everybody. To this end they
ar-e urging, assisting and cooper
ating in every way with patrons
and are also helping the farmers
to get in closer touch n~ ith their
distant neighbors as well as the
business world by the erection
of 'Farmers Lines' and giving
connections wherever there is an
exchange. The tolls are very
reasonable, the lines are nomi
nal in price of construction and
the 'phones are cheap. For a
double-wire line the wire costs
about $13 per mile and phones
$13.50 each. On the basis of a
double-wire line with ten sub
scribers, the line being seven
miles long, the cost would be
about $25 per 'phone. This is
exclusive of the poles, which
can be gotten out of the woods
hereabouts very cheaply and the
erection of the wire. The polesI
- . are set about 13 to the mile, and
you can figure out this cost for
yourself. On a line length of
above there should be at least
20 subscribers, which would
bring the price down, per phone,
considerably. After you once
get the service there would be no
kick on the cost of the line.
The Farmers Line movement
in this section is developing
much activity. A contract has
been closed by the "Flat Rock
Telephone Co." to be connected
with the Liberty exchange, and
the line is being rapidly pushed
The securing of this line is the
result of activity on the part of
the farmers and rural residents
of this section in the matter of
securing telephone service in
This development is of partic
ular interest and advantage to
the merchants, business men
and other residents of Liberty,
Easlev andl Pickens, enabling
them to reach people, who, oth
erwise, would be unable to
transact business at these points,
except when they visited themi
personally. Among those (con
nected with this line arec Messrs.
T. L. Watkins, J. C. McKinney,
E. F. Allgood, G. W. Russell
and N. S. Reeve all of whom are
prominent farmers of that com
Co. has got its wires strung all
the way to Pickens and connec
tion with the central office has
been made. You can now talk
to Pumpkintown and the linE
will probably be extended on t(
Table Rock hotel this summer.
The next move is a line from
Pickens to Six Mile. This is be
ing agitated and worked up and
we think we can soon mention
that the "Six Mile TelephonE
Co." has signed a contract for a
line. This is one of the most
important sections in the county
for a line and one should be
built by all means
The rise of a half cent a pound
on a ten bale lot of cotton would
pay your prorata of a rural line
-and wouldn't it be nice to call
up the cotton buyer, get the
price, figure to sell, and deliver
the next day? Or call up the
ealer and find out if you can
get a load of guano before coni
ng to town after it.
Without the phone, your
'wihbor sells his stuff today
md vou sell tomorrow--at a less
rice-but with the 'phone you
an sell at any time without
:oning to town and deliver the
)ods in the future.
Now pull for rural phones.

fulfills almost every wish in correcting

t liver, bladder and every part of the urinary

effects following use of liquor, wine or

soon realized. It stands the highest be

We want to talk to you a little now
about our amnioniated fertilizers. Th
)f acid and meal season is about over,
Those who use acid and meal haul il
home early in the season so that the.
can mix it, The season for ammoni
ated goods commence later, and ii
Le fact. is about started now. There is
-e not much difference in acids; one acid
f is about as goo.i as another. It is al0
'e made of phosphate rock, (hone pli
iSiphate lime,) crushed and treated wit!
y sulphuric acid phosphate and one fert!i!
izer company turns out about as good
quality of this goods as another. The
difference in fertilizer is in ammoni
ated goods. Ammoniated goods arn
made by taking this same acid plho
piate and mixing it with annmoniates
blood tankage, nitrate of soda, cottr
t seed meal, sulphate of anuonia, garb.
- age. Now; some of these ammoni.
,atfs do their work and exhaust ior
quickly than others andl so by prop
erly mixing and manipuilating our ane
mnoniates. we ha'e gotton a fertihvi
that will nourish the plant from the
time it sprouts. all during the: growing
season. durin.7 the laying-by sensr;
je andl up to the time the plant is ma

of for instance nitrate of soda. It act:

re fore it becomes a plant food, just as
hwhen you plant a grain of corn it ha:
at to germinate before it comes up. Tank
se age come in next and then blood;
R- which lasts until the crop is matured

ing the different kinds of amnmoniate:
in the proper proportion, one coing
in as one exhausts, we have a fertili.
"zer that will feed and nourish the
plant from the time it sprouts until i
is ready to be gathered. That is

cos5ts $01 pelr ton laid down at thei
f actory. We have bought qui.e a 1J1
of this and are using it in fertilizeri
- that will sell for less than $80 per toni
just because we want to make the
right kind of goods; goods that wil
3make the crop grow and keep growing
anid w il make a man take a pride it
his crop. Our aimmoniated goods used
on lands that are prepared and culti.
vated, as the farmers in this sectior
usually prepare and cultivate their
lands, wvill get all out of the land that
there is in it and a farmer should not
be satisfied with making the land d(
less than that. The trouble about us.
ing a chea;. fertilizer is just this: by
the time you find out it is no account
you have lost as crop and you have lost
a year's wvork and the only thing yo
can do is to wait until next y'ear and
try again to fertilize right.
Every sample of our goods that has
been analyzed at Clemson College ran
way above our analysis wvhichr shows
that we are making the right kind of
. goods. T1here is absolutely no adulter
ation in the fertilizers we are making.
SThey are made of bone phosphlate of
lime ammoniates and nothing else.
There is nothing better nmade. Our
Sgoods nill feed and nourish the plait
from the time it sprouts until it is ready
to be gathered andl that is the kind of
goods your land ncedls: that is the kind
of goods your land must have to mrake
first class croj-s. If you want goods of
gthis sort, we have them and they are
efor sale. They are hrome-miade and they
are made right: they are dry arnd wvel!
