I am a Candidate for the Prudential Hundred Thousand League this Year
Help me to the goal, that I may win one of the best Life Insurance trips. I have a good start so far of the one hundred thousand.
As we have something better than others, and something better than usual. I feel warranted in a good sum advertising expense to inform the people
To give you an idea of the dependable soundness of the PRUDENTIAL'S Policy and its popularity, the Company issued and revived more Life Insurance
in one year (191G) last year, than any other of the more than 2G0 companies operating in the U. S. had in force from its entire* record of existence excepting eio-ht ac
cording to the Blue Book published by the Spectator Company in 191 G. '
The Prudential Issued and Revive? in 1916 $591,000,000 Life Insurance
THE REASON: The PRUDENTIAL has the STRENGTH of GIBRALTAR. It has the lowest rates with annual
dividends, further reducing the premiums. The policy is plain with no catches. The policy pro
vides without cost, that if the holder becomes physically disabled, he is excused from paying the
premiums, and this without effecting the policy.
You can surrender a 20-pay life policy with annual dividend
off at the end of 20 years to the Company for more cash than
you have paid the Company. Drop me a card and I will see you.

WILLIAMSON PLAN I

E. Mciver Wil

of wm culture
which has been
adopted by a
great number of

Plains -pf ..--South,
Georgia with ex
Since a number t
of inquiries have
about methods of corn culture it is
considered advisable to recommend the
Williamson method to fanners in the
coastal region or those who have sandy
loam soils. The following is an out
line of the method in Mr. Williamson's
"Break tho land broadcast during the
.winter, using a two horse plow or,
better, a disc plow. Bed with turn
plow six-foot rows, leaving a five-inch
balk. When ready to plant, break
this out with a scooter. Plow deeply
in the bottom of this furrow, using a
Dixie with wing taken off. Ridge then
on this furrow with same plow still
going deep. Run the corn planter on
this ridge, dropping one grain every
five or six inches.
"Ph1-' early, a? soon as frost dan
ger is past. Early planting is espe
cially needful on very rich lands
where stalks can not otherwise be
kept from growing too large.
"Give the first working with a har
row or any plow that will not cover
the plant. For second working use
ten or twelve inch sweep. Corn should
not be worked again until the growth
has been so retarded, and the stalk
so hardened that it will never grow
too large. This is the most difficult
point in the whole process. Experi
ence and judgment are required to
know just how much the stalk should
be stunted, and plenty of nerve is re
quired to hold back your corn when
your neighbors, who fertilized at plant
ing time and cultivated rapidly, have
corn twice the size of yours.
"When you are convinced that your
corn has "been sufficiently humiliated,
you may begin to make the ear. The
SLOAN'S LINAMENT FOR RHEUMA
The torture of rheumatism, the
pains and aches that make life mis
erable are relieved by Sloan's Lini
ment, a clean clear liquid that is
easy to apply and more effective
than mussy plasters or ointment*
because it penetrates quickly with
out rubbing. For the many pains
and aches following exposure,
strains, sprains and muscle soreness,
Sloan's Liniment is promptly effect
ive. Always have a bottle bandy
for gout, lumbago toothache, back
ache, stiff neck and all external
pains. At all druggists, 25c. 1
How To Give Quinine To Children.
FEBRILINE is the trade-mark name given to an
improved Quinine. It is a Tasteless Syrup, pleas*
ant to take and does not disturb the stomach.
Children take it and never know it is Quinine.
Also especially adapted to adults who cannot
take ordinary Quinine. Does not nauseate nor
cause nervousness nor ringing in the head. Try
it the next time you need Quinine for any pur
pose. Ask for 2-ounce original package. The

plants should now bo from twelve to
eighteen inches high.
"Put half your fertilizer (this being
the first used at all) in the old sweep
furrow on both sides of every other
middle and cover by breaking out this
middle with turn plow. About one
week later treat the other middle the
same way. Within a few days side

Cover with ne furrow of turn plow,
tSen sow peas in this middle broad
cast at the rate of at least one bushel
to acre, and finish breaking out.
"In a few days sido corn in other
middle with same sweep, put balance
of nitrate of soda in this furrow, if it
has been divided, cover with turn
plow, sow peas, and break out. This
lays by your crop with a good bed and
plenty of dirt around your stalk. Tins

less the season is von' late, and coin
should be hardly hunching for tassel.
"Lav hy early. More corn is ruined
by lato plowing than by lack of plow
ing. This is when thc ear is hurt.
"The stalks thus raised aro very
small, and do not require anything
like the moisture even in proportion
to size titan is necessary for large,
sappy stalks. They may, therefore, he
left thicker in the row. Large stalks
can not make large yields except with
extremely favorable seasons, for they
cannot stand a lack of moisture. Corn
raised by this me'hod should not he
over seven f'.'et high, and the ear
should be near tho ground."
For Piedmont Section.
For the Piedmont sec'ion the Wil
liamson Plan can not be closely fol
lowed but must be modified. Half of
the fertilizer should be applied before
planting. The other half should he
applied not later than when corn is
knee high. The nitrate of soda should
thon be applied when the corn is waist
Raise Corn As War Measure
In response to the call for food sun
plies in view of war conditions, the
Southern fanner should plant as large
a crop of corn as possible. He should
fertilizo liberally and cultivate thor
oughly so that maximum crops may
be produced. It is recommended that
frcm 500 to COO pounds of fertilizer he
applied on Piedmont soils and from
SOO to 1,000 to coastal plain soils.
