Crows More Destruclive than

COAIORN, VA., August 22.?Tho corn
crop has Just now reached tho stage
Uiat Indlcatos the yleld at maturlty, 1. e.,
the stago whlch enables tho experieneed
and obsorvant farmcr to estlmate wllh
'no small degree of accuracy, whether tho
yleld wlll bo abovo or bolow tho general
average, and, strango enough, seemlngly,
thoro ls a groat dlvcrslty of oplnlon
arnong tho tlllers of tho soil as to the
prospocts for tho crop. Somo farmers
declare that tho crop is excellent and ln
every way satlsfactory, and promlBes a
full yleld, whlle others, who are equaliy
as competent Judges, stato emphatlcally
that lt ls unsatlstactory, nnd wlll fall
conslderably beldw an averago yleld.
Homo contend that the long contlnued
heavy ralns and unusually cool weatner
throughout tho sprlng and summer have
boen vory unfai.orablo and detrlmental to
both the early and tho late corn, whlle
othem arguo that "corn needs lots of
rain," and that the coplous showers ever
slnco plantlng timo last'spring have fiflly
componsated for the phenomenally cool
weather, so that, after all, the crop wlll
bo a full one.
A careful Investigation shows that tne
latter contentlon Is orroneous. when a.
plled to tho crop as a whole?1. e., of tho
ontlro county, and also shows how such
a dlvorslty of oplnlon among experieneed
farmers ls posslble. <j
' DIVERBITY OF SOIL.
In somo aoctions of tho county the soil
ls of a stlff clay, and ls not wlthout
natural vegetablo matter. Where thls ls
the case. the corn has stood the excesslve
ralns and cool weather remarkably well,
and tho yleld wlll reach an average?
probahly exceed tho general average ln a
few instances. In other parts of tho
county tho soil ls saridy, llght and des
tllute of all natural ivegetable matter.
"Whero thls condltlon prevalls, tho crop
ls very llght, and the yleld will be fltty
por cent. below an average.
Tho growth of stalk ls fully up to
tho average on thls character of soil, but
. the ear is small and lndifferent, ana
thre are a great many entirely barren
stalks ln every llght sandy fleld. In tne
low, meadow lands tho growth of stalk
and fodder Is very heavy?enormous, ln
deed, but owlng to the long, contlnued
ralns, tho'ground has been so aoft and
"mushy" all the summer that the corn
has beon knocked down hy wlnd, and a
great deal of It 13 lylng ln mud and
water, so that the yleld must be very
small-practlcally no yleld of graln at all.
The area of llght, sandy land where
tho crop Is vory llght, added to the low
lands, where it' ls damaged, ls largor than
the aroa of stlff clay land on whlch the
crop Is hea/vy and promlslng. Tt ls qulto
plaln, therefore,' that the yleld of corn
In the wholo county wlll bo llght and
below tho general average, and lt Is sald
on good authorlty that what is true of
King George in thls regard is true of the
DOG BMBALAIED AND "BURIED.
Dr. Allchael Allnor, of thl3 place, has
had a palr of handsome collles for sev?
eral years, and prlzed them so hlghly that
they have been cared for and treated more
like humans than like dogs. Some tlme
ngo a wagon ran over and broke the back
ot ono of them?the prettlest ?6ne of the
palr, whlch happened to be the popular
Doctor's favorite. The wound was of
such a nature that lt would not respond
to medical treatment, and before long a
stroko of paralysls made lt necessary to
klll the dog ln order to end its sufferings.
The Dootor admlnlstered chloroform, and
when llfo was extlnct the dead dog was
turned over to the leadlng undertaker of
tho county to be embalmed and lntefred
Just as human remalns are embalmed
Thls ls the flrst tlme that a dead dog
has been treated wlth such dlstinctlon
and honor in thls county. ,
FarmerS and truckers ln varlous parts 1
of thls county state that crows are moro
destructlvo to corn, melons and vegeta
bles Just now than ever bofore. In some
nolghborhoods watermelon patches, gar?
dens and corn-flelds have been so1 dam?
aged by these destructlve blrds that they
have to be closely watched each day.

It absorbs the injurlous gases whlch

Okolona, Mlss, J. E. REEDER. ,
the knees, ankles and wrists, are
the blood and system before a pain is felt. Some
inherit a strong predisposition oriendency; it is born in them; but whether heredity. is
back of it or it comes from imprudent and careless ways of living, it is the same always
and at all seasons. The real cause of Rheumatism is a polluted, sour and acid condition
of the blood, aud as it flows through the body deposits a gritty, irritating sulpstancp
br sediment in the muscles, joints and nerves,, and it is these that produce the terri
ble pains, inflammation and swalling and the misery and torture of Rheumatism.. No
other disease causes such pain, such wide-spread
suffering, It deforms and cripples its thousands,
leaving them helpless iuvalids and nervous wrecks.
When neglected or improperly treated, Rheuma?
tism becomes chronic, the pains are wandering or
shifting from one place to another, sornetimes sharp
and cutting, again dull and aggravating. Theinus-.
cles of the neck, shoulders and back,, the joints of.?... .
most often" the seat of pain. Countless liniments and plasters are applied to get/relief,
but such things do not reach the poisoned blood; their effect is only temporary; they are
neither curative nor preventive. The blood must be purified, and all irritating matter re?
moved from the circulation before pcrmanent relief and a thorough cure is effected, andno
remedy does this so certainly and so quickly as S.S..S. It contains not onlynurifymg
and tonicproperties, but solvent qualities as well, all these being necessary m eradicatmg the
noison and niakiner a complete aud lasting. .cure of Rheumatism. S. S. S. cleanses the
1. blood of all irritating matter and the acid particles are
dissolved and filtered out of the system. thus relieving
the muscles and joints and removing all danger of future
attacks. Under its tonic effect the nervous^ systenTre
gains its ribrmal tone and the appetite and digestion im
prove,.resi__lt_ng in the upbuilding of the general health.
S. S. S-xbntains no Potash or minerals of any descnp
tion, but is guaranteed purely vegetable. Old people
will find it not only the best blood purifier, but a most iuvigorating tonic?just such a remedy
as thev need to enrich the blood and quicken the circulation.
Whether vou have Rheumatism iu the acute or chronic stage, the treatment must be
internal, deep and thorough in order tobe lasting. Never be satisfied with anything less
than an absolutely perfect cure. This you can get by the use of S. S. S., the Oldest
and best purifier and greatest of all tonics. -^i.-.,..

PULASKI, VA., August 22.?Pllate has
asked "What ls truth?" and the world
has never yet glven an expllclt, posltive
doflnltlon. It has oeen sald that truth
contalned no elemont of falsehood, that
"crushed to earth, etc," all of whloh
aro Just attrlbutes I have no doubt. How?
ever, it ls not my purpose to enumerato
all tho exprosslons rogardlng truth that
I have heard, for they do not concern my
story, nor ls lt my dosire to astonlsh the
world by glvlng a satlsfactory deflnltlon
I have a frlend who ls the koeper ot a
county prlson, who lets me, whenever I
deslra lt, roam about the corrldors ot hls
corral and talk to whom I pleose of hls
charges. Ono day last autumn I felt an
intense deslro to be pleasant to somo
hotly, (I had Just receb.ed a romlttanco
whlch I know would keep down my
credltors for a fow days). I was at penco
wlth all the world, even old Jucob, the
tailor. So I declded to pay my frlend, tho
Jaller, a visit, and Inoldontally sympathlso
wllh somo poor fellow on tlm hardness of
hls fate; I was ln a sympathetlc mood
and was thlnklng how hard it must bo
to be denled the plea'suro of an afternoon
ramblo on a day when lt seemed that
all naturo was at lts brlghtest. and when
even tho very trees seemed to oxtend an
lnvitation to all manklnd, as they gontly
waved to nnd fro ln tho sqfi autumn
brooze, to como, nnd ln thelr solltude and
grandour, commune -wlth nature and wlth
naturo's God. And thus, ln thls_framo
of inlnd, I strollod up the dlm corrldor,
and ln my ramhllng I saw a man lit one
of tho cells who attracted my attention
tho mlnute my eyes restod upon hlm. He
was un old man, hls halr whltened by tho
frosts ot tho many wlnters that had
passed over lt, and hls fuco tanned by tho
sun of many sumniers, although ho was
not what wo would call a handsome man,
yet hls appearance wbs so strlking that ln
passlng hlm on the streot you would turn
for a second look. Hls foatures wero not
clean cut, nelther was thore an exprea
slon about tho mouth that denoted
strength of oharactor. But In hls ey.s
vvtien 1 flrst saw hlm thoro wos an oxproi
slon of such utter despalr that lt
caused my whole hoart to go out to hlm

We looked at oaoh othor and not a

through tho pa.S and it met his. Ho pross
