I am authorized by the manufac
turers of the Clarendon Piano to of
fer 200 of these pianos, style 201
and style 210, at $200.00 for the
style 210, and $250.00 for the style
I expect to be in Edgefield during
the week commencing November
27th, and will make the store of
Collett & Mitchell my headquarters,
and will have on hand one of each
of these styles.
These pianos are as good as the
average piano that is sold for from
$300 to $350. Many piano facto
ries pay as much as $50 for adver
tisement for every piano that they
turn out. The Ladies' Home Jour
nal gets $10,000 for the back cover
of one issue. Instead of doing so
much magazine advertising we pro
pose to sell these pianos at reduced
prices to introduce them.
Call and see each of the two styles mentioned and you will be eonvineed that
such extremely low values cannot be obtained elsewhere.
I give herewith a testimonial received from the Hon, J. E. Swearingen, who is well known to the read
ers of the papers of Edgefield county.
Soliciting a call from you, I remain,
JOHN A. HOLLAND,
The Greenwood Piano Man.
I have examined the Clarendon Piano, and take^pleasure in stating that in my opinion it js a high-class
instrument. The finish and workmanship are excellent. The tone is sweet, full and sustained. The low
price is unusual, and ought to enable many schools and many homes to purchase a good piano.

LAYING CONDITION OF HENS
Physical Indications Are Time of Molt
ing, Color of Shanks and Lobes
and Texture of Comb.
There are four physical indications
of a hen's laying condition, says 0.
B. Kent, poultry instructor at Cornell
university. These are the time of
molting, color of shanks, texture of
comb and color of ear lobe. The first |
and third points apply to all breeds,
the others only to those having yellow
shanks and yellow ear lobes.
Good luyers molt late and quickly.
If you go through the flock the first j
of October and pick out the hens that j
are just beginning to molt, or have not
started, you will get most of those
which are laying.
In yellow skin breeds the paleness
of the shanks after a period of laying ?
ls a good condition of a hen's ca
pacity. Any bird with bright yellow
shanks after a year of laying may be
picked out as a good producer.
OBJECTS OF POULTRY SHOWS
As a Rule They Are Not Money-Mak
ing Propositions-Aid Improvement
of Standard Varieties.
Poultry shows are, as a rule, not a
money making proposition. They are
promoted and conducted by organiza
tions composed of poultry fanciers,
who are interested in educating the
public in the breeding of purebred
poultry of all standard varieties. The
door receipts help to pay the many
cash prizes and other trophies offered
to encourage the breeding of better
specimens of the various varieties of
our domesticated fowls. Without these
exhibitions the progress of Improve
ment in the standard varieties would
be reduced to a minimum, and the
poultry raisers be handicapped In their
?ndeavor to advance the growth of the
pure-bred poultry industry in this

Sloan's Liniment is first thought
of mothers for bumps, bruises and
sprains that are continually happen

Cleaner and more effective than
muBsy plasters or ointments. For
rheumatic aches, neuralgia pain and
that grippy soreness after colds,
Sloan's Liniment gives prompt re

bruises, strains, sprains and all ex

posure are relieved by Sloan's Lini
ment. At all Druggists, 25c. 1

All the male citizens between the
ages of 21 years and 60 years, except
those exempt by law, are liable to a
poll tax of One Dollar each. A capita
tion tax of 50 cents each is to be paid
on all dogs.
The law prescribes that all male citi
zens between the ages of 18 and 55
years must pay $2.00 commutation tax
or work six days on the public roads.
As this is optional with the individual,
no commutation tax is included in the
property tax. So ask for road tax re
ceipt when you desire to pay road tax.
