The Best Variety of Cotton.
A reader asks, "What variety of
cotton is best for my section?"
There is no one best variety of
cotton, any more than there is one
best breed of hops, or than one
man has the best wife. There may
be a variety of cotton which would
be best for a certain locality, soil,,
and season, but no one can know
what it is, because he cannot know
what the season is going to be. It
is impossible for us to name the
best variety for any pariiculir soil
or season, for we don't know, neith
er does anyone else.
In selecting a variety, one good
plan is to select a variety that is
known to do well in the locality, on
a similar type of soil. Another
good way is to study the results of
the variety tests at the nearest Ex
periment Station. If the variety
selected.has stood high in thc teats
for several years, this is additional
evidence of its value and if it bas
also stood high in the tests at other
experiment stations that is still
further valuable evidence that is it
at least a good variety, if not the
best. The next step is to procure
seed of a careful breeder of this
Probably only a smaU quantity
should be planted the first year
or two, to test out its adaptability
to the particular conditions of the
farm. During this time it is best to
stick to some local variety of known
It may be economical, to pay five
times as much for a few bushels of
seed of one variety as for some
other variety; but unless one actu
ally knows that the seed is highly
bred and well selected, it is wiser to
depend on some local variety which
has proved its worth. Hundreds
are claiming that they have seed
that they have been breeding up and
improving for many years, who do
not even know the meaning of 6eed
breeding and selection. Many of
these varieties or strains are worth
less than the best local varieties,
and yet one cannot well pay two
much for seed that have really been
well bred and selected for a con
siderable term of years.-Progres

Another Edgefield | Case.
It Proves That There's a Way
Out For Many Suffering
Just another report of a case in
Edgefield. Another typical case.
Kidne^ ailments relieved in Edge
field with Doan's kidney pills.
Mr?. G T Padgett, Edgefield,
says: "My back ached and pained
all the time. In the morning when
I got up, I was so sore and stiff
that I could hardly bend over. I
tired easily and it was an effort for
me to do my housework. I also had
headaches and dizzy spells an I my
sight blurred. I got Doan's kidney
pills at Penn & Holstein's drug
store and they relieved me from the
first. Whenever my back gives me
any trouble now, Doan's kidney
pills never fail to bring relief."
Price 50c at all dealers. Don't
simply ask for a kidney remedy
get Doan's kidney pills-the same
that Mrs. Padgett had. Foster-Mil
