Ono cf the features of modern
tfcnea-is the prevalence of what we
ierm neurasthenia, or nervous break

the age in which we live and the

There are hundreds of women of
the upper and middle classes just
now bewailing their "nerves" and cry

and depression are spoiling th*ir

half the world of men and women not

the man, or woman who is ambitious

We are so anxious to "get on"1 we at

but when cold cream is used alone
the natural grape-sugar, which can
be seen glistening on the granules,
is sufficiently sweet to satisfy the pal
ate. This grape-sugar is not poured
over the granules, as some people
think, but exudes from the granules
in. the process of manufacture, when
-the starch of the grains is changed

Mr. P. H." Gadsden, president of the
Charleston Consolidated company,
who had been sent by Mayor Rhett
to visit European countries and there
to make an investigation into immi
gration conditions, was called upon
for an address. Mr. Gadsden had cl
ready made a report to Mayor Rhett,
which was published in he Charles
ton papers, but was not given much
publicity throughout the State and
the members of thc State Press As
sociation were very much pleased al
his broadly intelligent discussion of
the situation. He told of the need
of labor, the need of immigration, tho
need of more liberal labor laws and
finally of a population which will buv
and build up farm lands, which arc
now being bought very largely by ne
He spoke in \ ?rt as follows:
"While the history of the immi
gration movement in this State is
fairly well known to you all, a brief
review of it at this time will serve
a useful purpose. The question of
immigration was first brought to the
attention of the public of this State
by Mr. D. C. Heyward, then a can
didate for governor; subsequently, in
Januarj', 1904, Gov. Hey wa rd, in his
annual message to thc general as
sembly, developed his ideas as to
"By reference to that message ir
will be seen that the recommendation
o? thc governor to organize an immi
gration bureau in this State was
based almost entirely upon tho id?a
that such a bureau when established
cvas to devote itself to the introduc
tion into thc State of home-seekers
?nd settlers Following the recom
mendation of the governor the gener
al assembly passed an act which was
approved on Feb. 3, 1904, cstablsh
ing a department of immigration and
Providing for thc appointment of a
:ommissioner. 'That with regard to
igricultura] interests under this act,
t shall be the duty of the coramis
?ioner to secure those immigrants

some citzens of this State and build
ip agricultural interests.'
"The original purpose, therefore.
>f the establishment of a bureau of
mmigration in this State, and t'ie
)rimary ono, was to encourage homc
;eekers and settlers, and with that end
n view the bureau commenced its
?perations and succeeded in introduc
ng in different parts of the State
mite a number of Scotch and other
inmigrants who became citizens 3?
he land. This process was necessarily
i slow one. Just at this time the
mpply of labor in the cotton mills ox
he State became so scarce that the
Cotton Mill association of the State
ippointed a committee to supplement
?uch supply by immigration from
ibroad and approached the com
nisioner of immigration with an offer
o supply the necessary funds to pre
>ay the passage of cotton mill opera
ive? that were needed in the State.
"Realizing thc.t the introduction
>f home-seeers and settlers, while a
?atural and proper line, was neces
larily a slow one and appreciating
bat by the assistance of the-eotton
mills a large number of immigrants
?ould be introduced into the State at

id the offer of the cotton mills and
vent abroad for this purpose."
Here Mr. Gadsden described the
rips of the Wittekind and the re
lults that came from them. ,
Why We Need Imm^ation.
"It is for this particular reason
hat I am very glad of the opoprtua
ty to address you today. I came

Lidgment every dollar which has

roduction of immigrants into this
tate has been a good investment. In
o other way could the subject have

a no other way could a subject of

umbel- of negro farmers and land
olders in this State has increased
j a very considerable percentage.
After discussing thc various needs
f the State for additional labor,
fr. Gadsden closed as follows:
"I am glad to see that this ques

Modern Methods T
Farmer, Frn?t Groi
/ Fumigation For Insect Pests.
The fact has been well established
that for fhe thorough extermination
of the Insect pests that Infest our
cultivated trees and plants there is
nothing that equals the fumigation
wita hydrocyanic acid gas.
This ls particularly true of those
Insects that Infest our greenhouses.
Here spraying with the ordinary
fungicide and insecticide mixtures ls
not available, because of the injury
to the appearance of ornamental
plants and to the paint on these
structures. Fumigation then be
comes the only available and efficient
This is also true in the case of the
nurserymen who Wish to avoid the
risk of sending out infected stock,
even when they are reasonably sure
that their stock ls not infested. In
fact, in many States the law now re
quires that all nursery stock shall be
fumigated before shipment. While
the great expense of tents, etc., may
operate In many instances against
efforts at fumigation in the orchard,
there ls no doubt that even there the
complete eradication of the pests
would make the process cheap, as
compared with the partial destruc
tion of the trees by spraying, since
one fumigation would certainly last
for the season at least.
But in the case of the florist and
the nurseryman, fumigation ls really
the only effective remedy. Hence lt
becomes necessary for them to study
the methods and materials used in
order to learn the most economical
and practical way of doing the work.
The usual method has been to de
velop hydrocyanic gas by dropping
cyanide of potash Into sulphuric acid
in a closed house. But lately there
has been an effort made to show that
cyanide of potash may be more eco
nomically replaced by the cyanide of
sodium. When a nurseryman ls told
that 100 kilograms of cyanide of
sodium will produce as much hydro
cyanic gas as 132 kilograms of cyan
ide of potash, he is apt to at once
jump at the conclusion that the
sodium cyanide can be used as a
cheap substitute for the potassium
salt. But a test will prove that the
actual amount of the gas liberated
ls less than the amount of gas re
leased by the potassium cyanide, be
cause when the sodium salt Is treated
with sulphuric acid, a residue forms
consisting partly of solidified sul
phate of soda and partly of unde
composed cyanide of soda.
On the other hand, the residue left
from the use of potassium cyanide
is not a solidified mass of useless
material, but crumbles to a powder.
This powder is not a valueless arti
cle to the cultivator, like the sodium
sulphate, but is the potassium sul
phate that commands a high price as
a fertilizer. This fact that the res
idue from the potash salt ls a valua
ble fertilizer will of Itself do away
with all claims made for the superior
economy of the sodium cyanide, even
if the claims for a larger production
of gas had to be granted, for the resi
due resulting from the use of the
sodium cyanide ls a perfectly worth
less article to the cultivator, while
the residue from the potash salt ls
sulphate of potassium In a readily
available-form that would command
on the market over $2.50 per 100
pounds as a fertilizer. From this we
see how Important it is for the grow
er to study all the actual facts In
connection with the process.-Pro
fessor W. F. Massey.
There have been thousands of dol
lars spent trying to grow timothy,
blue grass, red clover and other hay
grasses in the Southern States, which
are not indigenous to this section
and which almost Invariably fail to
prove profitable; while sorghum,
which is at home in this climate and
which so far as I know has never
made a failure when given half a
chance, has been neglected as a hay
crop. It seems to be weakness in
human nature to take chances on
some speculation rather than depend
on natural conditions. This is rio

of us in trying new crops. We are
not satisfied with four tons sorghum
hay per acre, but 6pend our good
money for seed of some fakir's "bil

to make several times as much.
Next to cotton, sorghum is un

various reasons t'aat a variety ls best,
but if I bad to take choice of all feed
crops and. choose one crop out of the
lot, that crop would be sorghum. In
the first place, it is almost sure. No
extreme of rain or drouth ever cuts it
off entirely. It will wait for a rain
In^ time .of drouth and hold on
through a continued rainy spell for
dry weather. Then it is a palatable,
nutritious hay which is relished by
horses, mules, cows and hogs. A
goo'd quality of sorghum bay is aa
good as any hay in the world with
the possible exception of alfalfa, cow
peas and other legumes.
Then again it is easily grown and
comparatively easy to cure. It doe3
be6t, of courte, on rich land, but will
make a crop on any land that other'
cropB grow on.
Cultivation is simple. It may be
planted in rows and cultivated, o'r
sown broadcast on well-prepared
seed-bed. If in rows from four to
twelve quarts seed per acre, accord
ing to fertility of land. If broadcast
from two to four bushels seed per
acre. When planted in rows this
hay may be cut with corn-binder and
put at once into shock to cure. If
broadcast lt must be cut with mower

- The Wny to Raise Chickens.
While on our visit to Gwlnnett
County, Mrs. Miller showed us her
Incubator, chicken yard and chick
ens. We often see all the "para
phernalia," but not so often such a
high per cent, of thrifty chickens as
the output. Years ago we were
struck by reading in one of Mrs.
Browning's poems that lt took "in
telligence to clean a pig-sty." We
are ?ure it takes diligent intelligence
to make a success of the poultry busi
ness. Mrs. Miller has clearly shown
us how on? can succeed without go
ing to great expense-Just using care
And work to do all the necessary de
tails at the right time' and in the
right way. She has two Incubators
running in. a back room In her house.
Out of 300 eggs she hatched 240
chicks and had lost only one of
them. She never allows her incuba
tors to be idle cr lose the proper
temperature. She had a lot hatching
and eggs to refill when the little
chicks should be'taken out. She had
converted an old barn into a chicken
house and put yards and runs adja
cent. She bad some brooders or
dered, but as they had not come, she?
improvised one out of an old stove
a,nd some old quilts. Mr. Miller said
he was pressed into service and all
the changes made in the barns and
wire for yards, etc., had not C03t over
$25.50. Everything had been wbi?e
washed by using a spray pump in
stead of a brush. For cleanliness
and effectiveness it was the best
chicken plant we have ever seen.
She had scattered some wheat chaff
over the brooder house floor, and the
little fellows, chirping and scratch
ing busily for their food, was a pic
ture of interest that we will never
forget. Anyone can succeed raising
chickens who can arouse enthusiasm
enough in the business to perform
all the necessary work and do it ex
actly at the right time and in the ab
solute cleanly way.-Southern Culti
Fertilizer For Irish Potatoes.
A good fertilizer for Irish potatoes
would be one containing two or three
per cent, of nitrogen, four t six per
?ent. of available phosphoric acid
seven to ten per cent, of sulphate of
potash. Muriate of potash should
not be used on Irish potatoes as it
has a tendency to make them slick
when cooked and not "mealy," the
quality, of course, most desirable in
an Irish potato and one which com
mends it especially to the housewife.
You can buy nitrate of potash or cot
ton-seed meal, acid phosphate and
potash and make your own mixture
just, as well as to use some of the
preparations now on the market, and
in fact, you should be able to make
your own mixture for considerably
less than you can purchase the ready
mixed fertilizer containing the deslr
?bl?. percentages of plant food. A
fertilizer for Irish potatoes may be
applied underneath the drill to good
advantage before seeding the pota
toes. The roots will then quickly
reach lt and the plant obtain an
abundant supply of available plant
food during the early stages of its
Green Food Needed.
Save the lambs; save the pigs. The

"Man may work from sun to sun
but woman's work is never done,"
In order to keep the home neat
and pretty, the children well dressed
and tidy, women overdo and often
suffer in silence, drifting along from
bad to worse, knowing well that
they ought to have help to overcome
the pains and aches which daily
make life a burden.
It is to these women that Lydia
E. Hokham's Vegetable Compound,
made from native roots and herbs,
comes as a blessing. When the spir
its are depressed, the head and back
ache3, there are dragging-down pains, nervousness, sleeplessness, and
reluctance to go anywhere, these are only symptoms which unless
heeded, are soon followed by thc worst forms of Female Complaints.
Lydia E, Pinkham's Vegetable Compound
keeps the feminine organism ina strong and healthy condition. It cures
Inflammation, Ulceration,, displ?cements, and organic troubles. In
preparing for child-birth and to carry women safely through the Change
of Lifo it is most efficient.
Mrs. Augustus Lyon, of East Earl, Pa., writes:- Dear 'Mrs. Pink
ham:-"For a long time I suffered from female troubles and had all kinds
of aches and pains in the lower part of back and sides, I could not
sleep and had no appetite. Since taking Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable
Compound and following thc advice which you gave me I feel like a
new woman and I cannot praise your medicine too highly."
Mrs. Pinkham's Invitation to Women
Women suffering from any form of female weakness are invited to
write Mrs. Pinkham, at Lynn, Mass. Out of her vast volume of ex
perience she probably has the very knowledge that will help your
case. Her advice is free and always helpful.

Skin Disease From Birth-Fortune

Doctor Cured Her With Cuticnrn.
"1 have a cousin in Rockingham Co. who
once had a skin disease from her hirth un
til she was six yenrs of age. Her father
had spent a fortune on her to get her cured
and none of thc treatments ?lid her any
good. Old Dr. (J-suggested that he Iry I
the Cuticura Remedies, which he did.
When he commenced to use it thc child
was almost in a solid scab, ile had used it
about two months and thc child was well
and 1 could hardly believe she was the
same child. Her skin was' as soft as a
baby's without a scar on it. 1 have not
seen her in seventeen years, but 1 have
heard from her and the last time I heard
