Experiments conducted hy tho S.

that it pays to plant cotton much
closer Ulan bas boon the general prac
tice. Tho yield of seed colton in tho

direct proportion to the spacing of

ble given hereafter, the plots not

A study of tho figures In this table
reveals tho fact Hint tho plot in which

Tho tests wore on fairly good,
though not very fertile land, typical
of the Piedmont section. Tho Clem

Calomel is dangerous, lt may sal

fully from soreness of gums, tender

calomel, lt is mercury; quicksilver.
If you feel bilious, headachy, con
stipated and all knocked out, just go
to your druggist and get a bottle of
Dodson's Liver Tone for a few cents,
which is a harmless vegetable sub
stitute for dangerous calomel. Take
a spoonful, and if it doesn't start
your liver and straighten you up
hotter and quicker than nasty calo
mel, and without making you sick,
you just go back and get your money.
If you tjiike calomel to-day you'll

besides. It may salivato you, whilo if
you take Dodson's Liver Tono you
will wake up feeling groat. No salts
necessary. Give lt to tho children
because lt is perfectly harmless and
cannot salivate.-adv.

Columbia, April 19.-Editor Kco
weo Courier: Tho attontion of your
readers is called to tho dosporate at
tempt ol' tho opponents of national
prohibition to break down tho in?r
alo of ibo splendid Salvation Anny.
Xew York city has a $500,000 drive
on for their work. Tho chairman ol'
tho committee, Jamos Spoyer, ls the
hoad of the banking linn of Speyer
& Company. Mr. Spoyer is also one
of the vice ptv Jdents of the Associa
tion Aguinst the Prohibition Amend
When tho newspaper reporters in
formed Commander Evangeline
Booth that Mr. Speyer was a "wet,"
sho said: "Mr. Speyer ls an old and
esteemed friend of tho Army, but 1
tbink ho will havo to change bis
views if ho is to continue as chair
man ol' our drive. Our stand with re
spect to prohibition is what lt bas
always boen--absolutely tec-total."
iBccnilSO of this consistent attitude
tb.e "wets" are trying lo punish ber.
She refuses to recode, and will stand
regardless of costs. lOne of New
York's great politicians, who has tbe
power to do what he says, has prac
tically threatened to withdraw ibo
Salvation Army's permission to soli
cit funds in the streets, on the ground
that this utterance of Miss Booth is
"politics." Miss Booth's address is
120 West 14th street, New York City.
We cannot and must not forget the
splendid work of this organization
during tho war days. Then they sac
rificed and rendered glorious service
for ibo brave men at homo and on
foreign Holds. The thirty organiza
tions that are opposed to national
prohibition are certainly desperate
when they resort to such measures.
I.et every ex-service man that ap
preciates the services tho Salvation
Army rendered during the great
World War send encouragement lo
Commander Booth. Fair play must
win. E. M. Lightfoot,

Cheraw, April 19.-Ono of Che

and is manufacturing hore in Cho

chines of undoubted value to tho
farmer. The boll weevil got into Mr.
Brasington's head, so to speak, and
hatched out a boll weevil extermina
tor. Tho feature of this machine is
that it has force pumps which spray
water upon tho cotton plants to hold
tho calcium arsenate, which the same
machine also dusts upon the plants.
Thc machine is horse-drawn and may
bo used in daytime-a decided ad

Tho wind was blowing a gale, and
tho sleet was coming down vory fast,
a3 Martha Jones sulked in tho corner
on tho lounge. She had planned to
attond tho big ball gamo that after
noon and was compelled to stay in
doors because of tho bad weather.
"I boliovo there is bad weather
every timo 'I plan to go somewhere
and have a little fun," she said to
her aunt, who was sitting by tho Uro,
quietly knitting.
"No, no, Martha; not so bad as
that! Tho weather doesn't seem so
bad when ono's time is occupied,"
said tho aunt.
Martha still sulked.
Tho aunt continued: "Why do you
not make somo gifts for tho littlo
children at tho orphanage? You
know Christmas will be hero soon."
"Pshaw! Tho orphans don't inter
est me in tho least. How absurd of
you to suggest such a tiling, Aunt
"1 suggested it because I thought
you would enjoy doing something for
the littlo orphans," her aunt said,
"Enjoy lt! No, 1 wouldn't enjoy
it. if 1 had my way I'd not have an
orphanage In this town," stormed
Martha to her aunt.
Just then their conversation was
interrupted by a loud knock on the
door. Martha, upon going to the
door, saw ono of tho most pitiable
spectacles that eyes over rested on,
for there stood one of the most rag
ged and dirty little boys.
"Please, ma'am," bo said, "could
n't you give mo a biscuit or soinc
; liing to oat? 1 haven't had anything
to eat sineo yesterday morning."
"Where is ymir home?" nsked Mar
tha, her voice more gent?o than when
she had spoken to her aunt.
"Daddy and mamma are both
dead." ho said, as ibo (oars bogan to
lind their way down his little pale
and pinched face.
Martha's heart was moved, and she
gave the lil tie fellow a good dinner,
then carried him to the orphanage.
When she returned home she said to
her aunt, "I'll never say such things
about tho orphans ngain; and I don't
think tho weather is so bad after
"I am glad to hear you talk thal
way," her aunt answered.
It is much better to be cheerful
than to sulk when you can't get all
things your way.

Frosh Eggs for Mn Uro Year.
Clemson College, April 18.-Dur
ing April and May, whon eggs aro
plentiful, of higher duality, and tho
market price is vory low, is tho best
time io preserve eggs, according to
N. R. Mehrhof, extension poultry spe
cialist, who suggests that only tho
strictly frosh eggs should bo pre
served; that dirty eggs or eggs that
have been washed, should not bo
used; that washed eggs will not koop
because tho protectivo coating has
been removed by tho washing, and
dirty eggs will become tainted in fla
vor, and that infertile oggs aro bet
ter than fertile oggs for preserving.
Tho water glass method ls ono of
the most satisfactory methods to
I uso. Tho commercial wator glass,
which can bo bought at any drug
storo, ls used in the following pro
portion: 1 quart of wator glass to 10
quarts of pure wator.
Water that has boen boiled and
thou cooled is preferable. Tho mix
turo should bo stirred until tho in
gredients are thoroughly mlxod.
A clean st ono jar is tho most suit
ablo container. Tho eggs should bo
placed in tho water glass so that
those at tho top aro covored by at
least two inches of tho liquid. The
Jar had host bo covorod in order to
provont evaporation, and it should
bo storod in a cool placo.

ing account of how she recovered her
strength, having realized that she was
actually losing her health:
..Health ls the greatest thing in the
world, and when you feel that gradually
slipping away from you, you certainly sit
up and take notice. That ls what 1 did
some time ago when 1 found myself in a
very nervous, run-down condition of
heal tli. I was so tired and felt so lifeless
I could hardly go at all. *
"I was just no account for work. I
would get a bucket of waler and would j
feel so weak I would have to set it down
before I felt like I could lift it to the shelf.
In this condition, of course, to do even I
my housework was a task almost Im-J
possible to accomplish.
