Will Buy Seed Cotton After December 15
All who have remnants of cotton can find sale for them after the 15th of December with J. G. Alford at
the Oil Mill.
All who need meal and hulls should get them before the holidays. The prices will never be cheaper than
now is my opinion. If you wish to exchange seed for meal and hulls I can save you money on your feed bill.
Those who have not finished ginning can get accommodated here every day. I have no gin days.
Come to see me for anything in my-line that you have to sell or wish to buy.

RQAD SYSTEMS IN NEW YORK
Total Designated Mileage Placed at
11,988 Miles-Work Hindered by
Scarcity of Labor.
The total designated mileage of
i state and county highway systems In
?New York state at the present time is
jll,9S8, of which 5,926 miles had been
[completed and accepted on January 1,
?while contracts in force at that time
?covered 1.1S5 miles. This with the
I contracts awarded during the year
?1916. leaves a balance of designated
(mileage not yet cared for of 4,210.
?Highway construction during the past
?two years has been gravely hindered
'because of the fact that surplus labor

1916 lt was impossible to secure even
Qt largely increased cost, more than a
?quarter of the labor actually required
(for highway work.
ASPHALT IN UNIVERSAL USE
'First Pavement of Any Importance
Was Laid in Washington in 1876
The use of asphalt in paving con
struction has become so universal that
I one never thinks of it as a compara
tively recently developed material. Yet
j probably the first sheet of asphalt
?pavement of any importance was that
(laid in Washington. D. C., on Pennsyl
vania avenue in 1876 and on Vermont
.avenue in 1S79. The latter is still in
Existence today, and lt is an evi
dence of the wearing qualities of
?this type of pavement even when laid,
los lt was, without the scientific meth
ods of the present day.

Mrs. W. F. Pickle, of
Rising Fawn, Ga., writes:
"We have used Thed
ford's Black-Draught as
a family medicine. My
mother-in-law could not
take calomel as it seemed
too strong for her, so she
used Black-Draught as a
mild laxative and liver
regulator... We use it
in the family and believe
it is the best medicine for
the liver made." Try it.
