Much Damaged Cotton.
We have heard of more damaged
cotton than usual this year, which
is probably due to the heavy and
almost continuous rainfall through
out December, January and a por
tion of February. How strange it is
that a farmer will work hard eight
months in the year making a crop
and then throw it out m the weath
er unprotected! Why not profit by
the experience of others? Cotton
that is thrown put on the ground
v\ ill soon become damaged.
Old Reliable Factors.
In this issue will be found the
advertisement of Messrs. Russell
and Allen, one of the oldest and
most reliable cotton firms in An
gosta. They solicit y oar cotton
and will make liberal advances on
all of the staple stored with them.
The members of this . popular firm
give personal attention to all con
signments of cotton. If you are
not already one of their patrons
give them a trial. You will find all
of their dealings satisfactory.

chandise being on display. Mr.

is not dismayed nor deterred by

will purchase a stock of spring
merchandise that will maintain the

abreast of the times all along the
line. Mr. Turner will also purchase
his usual stock of spring millinery.

Prompt Action Will Stop Your
When you first catch a Cold (of
ten indicated by a sneeze or cough),
break it up at once. The idea that
"It does not matter" often leads to
serious complications. The remedy
which immediately and easily pene
trates the lining of the throat is the
kind demanded. Dr. King's New
Discovery soothes the irritation,
loosens the phlegum. You feel
better at once. "It seemed to reach
the very spot of my Cough" is one
of many honest testimonials. 50c.
