The Easley Damocrat says:
"Don't plant more than 12 acres
to the horse this year in cotton,
and plant at least 20 acres in corn ;
and also raise at least two litters

you can get. This is important
advice; it amounts to meat and

Get Your Papers.
You people who are in the habit
of leaving your papers in the
clerk's office, after they have been
recorded ; did you ever think of
the risk you run? Suppose there
wag a fire, for instance. Not only
the copy of your papers would be
destroyed, but the original along
with thom, and there ' would be jao
way to prove your claim. Better
take your papers from the clerk
after they are recorded. If there
is a fire at home the clerk has a
co'py, and if there is a fire at the
court house, you have the original.
This makes you absolutely safe
with two chances. The other way

his record, and that she has a son
who has followed and will con

to move forward and not backward,
a banner that is broad enough and
long enough to enfold all the sons
of Carolina whose heads are level

"Seeing Is Believing.
And a good lamp
must be simple; when it is not simple it is
i not good. Simple, Beautiful, Good-these
I words mean much, but to see "The Rochester "
will impress the truth more forcibly. All metal,
tough and seamless, and made in three pieces only,
it is absolutely safe and unbreakable. Like Aladdin's
of old, it is indeed a "wonderful lamp," for its mar
velous light is purer and brighter than gas light, ?
softer than electric light and more cheerful than either.
Look for this s ta tn p-Ta B ROCHESTER. If the lamp dealer hasn't the^e mi ino
Rochester, and the style you wast, send to us for our new illustrated catalogue,
L and we will send you a ?amp safely by exoress-your choice of over 2,000
I varieties from the Largest Lamp Store in the World.
