Many of the northern people who
are spending the winter in Augusta
have exceedingly handsome cars.
Some of them spend more for one
automobile than an average well
stocked farm costs. The Augusta
Chronicle has the following to say
of Mr. ?John D. Rockefeller's autos:
"Mr. John D. Rockefeller has
two cars here, one a Renault Lan
daulet, 30-hor3e power, capable of
seating six persons. The car is lux

a tube by which to speak to the
chauffeur, ano!, in fact, eventhing
that speaks for comfort. The car is
valued at about $9,^00. It is the
highest priced car ever seen in Au
gusta. The other car, owned by Mr.
Rockefeller, is a Pierless, 6-cylinder,
touring car, in which seven persons,

Edgefield Women are Finding
Relief at Last
It does seem that women have
more than a fair share of the aches
and pains that afflict humanity;
they must "keep up," must attend
to duties in spite of constantly
aching backs, or headaches, dizzy
spells, bearing-down pains; they
must stoop over, when to stoop
means torture. They must walk and
bend and work with racking pains
and many aches from kidney ills.
Kidneys cause more suffering than
any other organ of the body. Keep
the kidneys well and health is easily
maintained. Read of a remedy for
kidneys only that helps and cures
the kidneys and is endorsed by peo
ple you know.
Mrs. M. Timmerman, Cedar Row,
Edgefield, S. C., says: "For three
or four months I suffered considera
bly from lameness in the small of
my back and could not get anything
to help me. My kidneys were also
out of order and when I heard that
Doan's kidney pills were good for
such tronbles, I went to Penn &
Holstein's drug store and'' procured
a box. They soon stopped the pain
and made me feel better in every
way. I consider Doan's kidney pills
a valuable kidney remedy and ad
vise others bothered as I was to give
them a trial."

No Land So Rich That Fertilizer
Cannot Make It Better
You use fertilizers for the profit you get out of them-and the
better the land the more profitably a good fertilizer can be used on it
Do not imagine because land will produce a fair crop without
that these fertilizers cannot be profitably used on it, or that they were
made only for land too poor to produce without mern. If poor land
will show a normal increase when fertilizer is used, good land will
show at least double the increase. Use Virginia-Carolina Fertilizers
to increase the quality, as well as the quantity of the crop-and you
will increase the profits from your land.
"I have been using your fertilizers for a number of years" says
Mr. William Fraiser, of Glasburg, La., "'andfind that it not only pays
to fertilize, but to do plenty of it, and use the best fertilizers to be
had, such as your brands. I have used a number of them and found
them to be as recommended and to give better results than any other
fertilizers that I have ever used."
Every planter and farmer should have a copy of the new 1909
Virginia-Carolina Farmers' Year-Book. Get a free copy from your
fertilizer dealer, or write our nearest sales office.
