ladies had expected to find her-a
gracious, sweet and womanly
woman. In her address, she was

Garrett and Calhoun's Weekly
International news effecting the
cotton market during the past week
has not improved. On the other
hand both the Russian and Italian
situation have reached an acute
stage. As a result of these unfavor
able developments the stock market,
which is more or less correlative
with financial conditions as far as
they effect things at the moment,
has gone through a period of extreme
weakness with almost a state of
demoralization on that exchange.
Notwithstanding these adverse
influences cotton has held remark
ably steady and while fluctuations
for the past week have covered a
more or less wide extent of range,
prices closed tonight at a somewhat
higher level than a week ago.
Close observers argue upon the
fact that values have held notwith
standing this pessimistic view of
foreign complications; that any
favorable news that may come into
the market will bring about a higher
level of values. This seems to be a
probable and favorable forecast, and
with the scarcity of pressnt supplies
due to the many adverse influences
that have effected the crop being
marketed, it is reasonable to suppose
that higher prices can be looked for.

Bad He Could
Not Dress Self
Tried All Kinds of Remedies
But Found a Few Drops
of Iron in Water Each
Day Brought Relief
Says Acid Iron Mineral Is Cheap
er, Better Way.
. "Rheumatism, rheumatism, and
then some more rheumatism seemed
to be my lot in life. It would attack
me at unexpected times and almost
knock me out for good and all",
says L. W. Sours, of Luray, Va.
"For two years I wasn't able io
do anything and couldn't even dress
myself, and at night I simply tossed
and rolled with agony aud, due to
the kidney trouble, I reckon, my
dreams were fitful and bad and very
often I would wake up in the middle
of the night and when I would try
to turn over I couldn't. I would
struggle and the pain would hecome
almost unbearable and my breathing
would become difficult. Anyone
who has suffered as I did, can realize
my gratitude and apprreciation bf
Acid Iron Mineral. I thought it
might help me and I used one 50c.
bottle and two ?1 bottles before I
could see much change, but on the
third dollar bottle I felt like a Dew
man and can do a good day's work
aud rest well nights."
"I urge people to take this iron
medicine wherever I go because it
helped me where a great many other
remedies failed and after trying
four-;-, and continued to get
worse I gavel up being treated and
found relief in A-I-M. I want to
call special attention of folks to the
fact that when they take A-I-M do
not stop with one bottle but be sure
to continue and you will get relief
for I know what it will do," declared
L. W. Sours, Luray, Va., R. F. D.
Rheumatism, when it grips the ,
system, chases around through the
veins, sometimes in one spot and
then in another. It must be re
moved from the blood. It needs
tho help of iron to enrich, purify
and cleanse the blood and Acid Iron
Mineral, in its highly concentrated
form, testing over 10 degrees specifio
gravity makes the ideal remedy.
All druggists have it.
Importance of Contract. j
Farmers have heretofore been too
careless in business matters and !
many of them have lost as a result.
But what is almost as bad is a mis
understanding that causes friends
and neighbors to lose confidence in
each other and possibly leads to
strife and litigation. It is even
more impoitaot to have a definite
understanding and a contract where
dealings are of a business nature
between parties where relatives or !
friends are involved than where the
parties are strangers.
Without a contract too much is
generally expected of friends and
relatives, as each party may require
more of the other than a contract
Rent and lease contracts should
always be defined by a written con
tract. There are very few laws in
the Southwestern states that limit
renting or leasing land as most
points of law depend upon tho con
tract between the parties. Honest,
conscientious men are not afiaid to
sign agreements and contracts as
they once were, thanks to ethics in
business. Rather most men wish a
contract to guide them as well as
others involved. Safe business will
require it.-Farm and Ranch.
