Weevils Up and Doing.
Think of it, here it is just the first
of May and the boll weevils are up
and doing their devilment! Mr. J. R.

peared on a portion of a row and up
on examination found that weevils
were actually now at work on the ten
der cotton almost before it emerged
from its swaddling clothes. If weevils
are now sucking the life out of the
cotton, even early in May, what will
;hey be doing the latter part of June
ind early in July?

Beautiful Exercises by the
A large congregation gathered at
the Methodist church Sunday morn
ing to attend . Children's Day exer
cises. ? After the church was filled,
with many standing the aisles, a con
siderable number had to be turned
away, which is unmistakable evidence
that the people eagerly looked for
ward to the occasion with pleasant
anticipation. The chancel and ros
trum were appropriately decorated
for the children as they carried out
the program. Mr. S. B. Nicholson, su
perintendent of the Sunday School,
acted as master of ceremonies, and he
called upon Mr. Wilie Ouzts who was
present from Harmony to open the
exercises with prayer. From the op
ening to the closing number, the pro
gram was interesting and beautifully
carried out, all of the children per
forming their parts in a highly cred
itable manner. It must have required
a great amount of work to prepare
so many children, of all sizes and
ages, for such a varied and attractive
program, and the credit fer the splen
did success of the day has been given
more to Mrs. Lovick Smith than to
any other member of the church or
Sunday school. She labored tirelessly
and unceasingly in making Children's
Day at the Methodist church a suc
cess. And all who were fortunate
enough to be present will say with
one accord that the entire occasion
was a great success. The exercises
were closed with prayer by Mr. W. P.

A Terrible Tragedy.
The friends of Mrs. Orin Reese of
Belvedere, who before her marriage
was Miss Weinona Mathis, the eldest
daughter of Mr. and Mrs; D. T. Math
is of Colliers, were greatly shocked
to learn of the terrible accident
Thursday which came near costing
her her life. Mr. Reese has a small
gasoline engine on his premises with
which he pumps water into a large
tank, and wishing to stop the engine
Thursday, Mrs. Reese made an effort
to remove the belt or in some other
way stop the engine with her foot,
as she had seen her husband do a
number of times. Her foot or skirt
was caught by the belt and she was
dragged into the machine violently,
breaking and terribly mangling one
of her limbs below the knee and also
breaking her arm in two places. She
was placed in an automdbile and car
ried at once to the hospital in Au
gusta, where her leg had to be am
putated just below the knee. Her
arm will be saved. Since the terrible
acident occurred her friends jiave
been deeply grieved and distressed.
It seems that she escaped with her life
as if by a miracle. The last reports
were to the effect that she was doing
as welj as could be expected to have
received such a great shock to her

Indigestion. The effects of a
disordered stomach on the
system are dangerous, and

medicine I have needed has
been something to aid diges

writes Mr. Fred Ashby, a
McKinney, Texas, farmer.
.'My medicine is
for indigestion and stomach
trouble of any kind. I have
never found anything that
touches the spot, like Black
Draught. I take it in broken
doses after meals. For a long
time I tried pills, which grip
ed and didn't give the good
results. Black-Draught liver
medicine is easy to take, easy
to keep, inexpensive."

THE PROBLEM OF CUTTING GRAIN CAN BE SOLVED
By Using a FORDSON Tractor

It furnishes a steady, economical power. The old-fashion way of cutting grain
with a cradle is slow and unsatisfactory, especially with labor conditions as they
are. After cutting your grain there are a dozen uses that you can put your trac
