> ear In advanoe.
Wednesday, Sept. 16, 1903.
The late government report makes the
I wheat crop thirty-five mtliiou bushels less
r than last year. This means very much nlgber
flonr until another harvest in 1904. All flour
Is higher now, but the advanoe on Bransford's
"Clifton" has Dot yet been as great In
proportion to other flour. However, It is a
mighty good time to buy a supply before it
gors still higher. Fresh flour constantly received.

There Is forceful logic In the areumeut by
Messrs. Hall & Anderson In their advertise

Clothes In September, because the buyer gets
longer wear lor bis money, and a larger assort'
ment to select from. This firm bandies the

Dear Sir: You ask bow many square feet a
uallon will cover. Dtpends on condition ol
Tbere is a great deal of lying on this point.
The stock claim of lying paints Is 3J0 square
feet, two coats. It's a lie, as a rule.
Devoecovers300 to 500, our agents think.
Wethlnk 300 too low and 600 too high; though
doubtlesR. they both occur.
How much the other paints cover is equally
doubtful; we guess 100 to 400.
The truth Is found in another comparison.
Devoe Is all palut, true paint, strong paint,
and full-measure; tbe others in general are,
at tbe be6t. dilated, adulterated and shortmeasure.
They cover according to body and
measure. You an't paint with clay lime
chalk sand barytes water or air?no body In
them. Go by Devoe. Yours truly,

HOT WEATHER, CROPS AND RAIN-.
We have Just passed through two weeks of
the hottest weather of the summer, striking
the crops just as usual, at the wrong time, but
the long wished for rain came last Monday,
when a good season fell nicely all along Route
No. 3, and the crops are greatly Improved, and
the late planting of cotton will, we hope, get
Et move on It that will result In making a
?ood crop. i
The corn crop Is fine and all fodder that baa
been pulled 1? already safely honsed, and the
rarmers have been saving hay and pea vines
during the dry hot spell Just over.
We met a big farmer at the flatwoods a few
days ago, who said, "Mack, I am feeling good^
and it would do you gooa xo pee my oaras an 7,a
stuffed with fodder, hay, clover and sorghum,"
and as he ended bin nloe little speech,
ti bright smile lit up hie face, and we really
believe hp did feelgood. Many other* are
feeling good over the same cause or result.
Some of the farmers are building new barns 11I
ready, wherein to store their provender.
Well filled barns present a plcturo of peace
and plenty, and make life down on the farm
worth living. ?
