Why not get your "MoneyV Worth" whan you buy Fertilizers ?
People kick about the price of Corn-struggle for reduction in the price of Flour and grow ex
cited over the way they think that they are being robbed for these necessities. Yot some of them go right
ahead paying two or three dollars per ton more for their Fertilizers than the actual analysis of the
goods will warrant.
Too many bf us struggle for reductions that are hard to secure, and often ignore the ?'?onomies
aud better values that are open to every Farmer who will use good common sense and discretion in buying
Fertilizers. You can surely save a considerable percentage ot your money, and you can secure much
more satisfaction in your farm work if you will only buy your Fertilizers right.
Take our celebrated G. W. G. SOLUBLE GUANO for example. It meaeures right up on ac
tual dialysis with Guano sold by OUT competitors at much higher prices-so it is with all our brands,
?St?* values are obtained in each without extra co4$ to the Farmer.
Come and talk over FERTILIZERS with L'3. If you have any trade in you we can more
than give you your MONEY'S WORTH.

COTTON MILL WAGES.
And How they Help to Build Vp
(Kroni the Wall Street Journal.)
One of tho leading South Carolina
newspapers has been making a spe
cial study of cotton mill conditions
in that State. It reaches the conclu
sion that the annual payment of
Borne 140 cotton mills, from which
it obtained reports, amounts to not
less than $12,000,000. In other
words, an average of a million dol
lars a mon!h goes out from the trea
suries of these manufacturing con
cerns into the hands of wage-earners
who spend it? in such ways as they
One of the certain things result
ing from the flow of stich a fund out
into the channels of business ls the
building up of mercantile establish
ments of a greatly Increased purchas
ing power wherever these mills at
tract to themselves a community of
workers. So much as this ls certain,
as one niay see with his own eyes in
observing the changes which th))
presence of a cotton mill has made
In the amount of merchandising
But the effects of the introduction
of a million dollars a month into the
current uses of a small community
acts like a leaven on all other
branches of investment. It has not
bG^kvunusuaf, it it s not indeed the
ruV ^Jjor ro?l estate within a radius
of\ey[ miles of Cotton mills In tho
Piedmont section bf the Carolinas
and Georgia to appreciate in value
three or four times over since the
advent of the mills.
Nor is this a speculative result. It
comes about from the quickening ef
fect of the demand which several
hundred people, occupied with at
tending machinery, make upon the
cultivators of the soil for the vege
table and the animal products of the
surrounding territory. Farmers
have seen the prices of their own
products double in their own home
market. If only one-quarter of the
$12,000,000 paid in wages by the
mills of South Carolina goes into
the pockets of the farmers continu
ously /rom year to year, it ls easy to
understand how this new life-blood
of free capital must stir and stimu
late the enterprise which before the
introduction of mills was for the
greater part of the time on the rag
ged edge of financial ?atlure.

Death of Little Lillie Sheriff.
Seneca, R. F. D.-Special: On
Wednesday morning, November 13,
nt 2 o'clock, the spirit of little LIUie
Sheriff winged its flight to the God
who gave it. Ever since her birth,
for nearly fourteen years, Bhe had
been an Invalid-never knowing any
pleasures or Joys whatever that this
life can give. Her life had been one
of sufferings. She has always had
the very best care that a loving mo
ther and father, brother an'' .-."?ere
could give, trying to make af
flictions lighter for the little fragile
body to bear*. Never having walked
a step in her life, her parents de
voted so much time to her-loved
and cared for her so tenderly. What
a grand vision must have burst on
her sight as she closed her eyes here
to open them in glory. She Is ano
ther bud chosen from God'B garden.
After funeral services, conducted by
Rev. C. L. McCain, her remains were
laid to rest in Friendship cemetery.
To the family we extend our heart

Indians, and, In a few hours collect
