You may dliflRuro barns and fences
and rocks and roads, wasto your mon
ey on so-called business charts, nnd
all that sort of thing, and vainly lm
aglno you nru advertising. Hut you
aro not. Tbo newspaper that every
week visits hundreds of homes and
Is looked upon by Its readers as a
rellablo friend and ndvcrtlser Is Uio
medium through which tho wldo-tt'
wake business man will speak to tbo
peoplo. Quack advertising tho kind
you blto on when n stranger comes
around with a great "scheme" Is like
quack medicine tbo less you tako It
tbo better. The man who npprec!
utts tbo value of uowspapcr adver
tising, and has buslncess Instinct
enough to know that all other moth
ods aro spurious, Is tho man who
meets with success.
Weis Williams, a farmer near Ful
ton, Is exhibiting a pumpkin in Ful
ton that measures C2V& Inches In
circumference and weighs forty-one
pounds. That's "soma pumpkins."
Cotton -prices took another jump
Saturday, and reached 15.75, tho
highest price ever known here. And
Just think, n year or two ago this
same staple was selling around 2.
If our farmers aro not prosperous now
considering the prices they are get
ting for their products, tboy never
will bo. Well, its about Ump the
farmer was making a Utile mpnor,
However, as forecasted nearly a
month &8o, tho curtailment of. cotton
inapufacturcs In tho United States
has begun on this account.
Tho actual start will be made next
Monday in tho l'ledmout section of
tho Carolina, wbcro some of tbo
largest mill in tho soutborn district
will bo closed for at least two weeks.
Tho Tarboro mill Is already closed,
and tho Henrietta mills, the biggest
plant In North Carolina, employing
3,000 operatives will close Monday.
It is expected that tho Carolina mills
under tho so mo management will
shut down in a few days.
Tho Whitney, Spartan, Glcndalc,
Arkwrlght, Lockbart aud Pacolet mills
in Spartanburg county, South Caro
lina, bavo closed. They omploy 10,-
000 operatives. Tboso mills havo
been running on short tlmo for two
or thrco weeks. Tho present shut
down Is for an Indefluito period.
Tho curtailment movmeut Is not
expected to reach Uio Nuw England
district for fully two or three uionins.
Uy that tlmo tho mills tbero will In
augurate a policy of curtailment de
cided upon threo weeks ago at a
mooting In Hoston, bon It was
agreed to curtail 28 days between
now aud tho first of August 1910.
Tho causo of thu curtailment Is the
high prlco of cotton. Even nt pres
ent prices they cannot run tho mills
at a profit. They assert that they
cannot forco up tho prices of tho raw
material. Cloth has gouo up ftvo
couts a pound In tho last week.
Foreign aud American spinners have
heavy forces of buyers In tbo South
taking all tho cotton available at 14
cents. It Is this situation that U
pressing down hard upon Southorn
spinners, tho bulk of whoso product
Is yarns and coarse cloths.

SMITH & AMBERG
DIED LA8T WEEK.
Friday morning, at two o'clock, at
tho homo of her son. Dr. Hamlett, of
Water Valloy, occurred tho sad death
of Mrs. Molllo Hamlett, ono of tho
oldost and best known ladles of tho
county In which sho has so long re
sided. Mrs. Hamlett has been ill for
somo time of a complication of dis
eases common to old age. and her
domlso had been expected for tho
post few weeks. She was 70 years
of age when Death called her homo.
Mrs. Hamlett vr&a tho mother of
Mrs. W. J. Cook, of this city.
Her remains were buried at Wesley
church, north of Fulton. nov D, J.
Russell conducted tho services.
REAL PUMPKIN PIE.
Hero Is a rccelpo for two good
things first,' making tho real old
fashion pumpkin pio second, putting
tho "old man" in ecstacy. Thanks
giving is not for off glvo it a trial:
Select a firm, dark-colored pumpkin
(not too largo), as It Is apt to be of
finer grain and better flavor than a
light-colored softer ono.
Cut Into strips, peel and removo
all seeds and stringy substances. Cut
Into two-inch pieces and placo in a
deep agate or stone sauce pan; cover
with cold water, add a pinch of salt;
cover and cook threo hours, stirring
Then removo the saucepan to tho
back of the stove, removo cover and
simmer four or five hours, stirring
every twenty or thirty minutes, until
the pumpkin is dry and of a rich
color, soft while hot. Tha process of
cooking requires the greater part ot
In the morning make a rather rich
pastry, as pumpkin absorbs tho lard
more than squash or custard filling.
Take ono heaping cup ot tho prepared
pumpkin, add one well-beaten egg,
ono scant teaspoonful of cinnamon
and ginger, a pinch of salt, put two
tablespoons of molasses in a cup and
till tho cup with granulated Bugar;
mix thoroughly together and add ono
pint ot rich milk.
Bake In a rather hot oven until
tho pastry becomes firm, then cool
the oven to medium and bake ono
hour, being careful that the mixturo
does not boll, as It spoils the tex
ture ofthe pio.
One-halt a medium- size pumpkin is
enough for three pies. This recelpo
Is probably seventy-five years old.
To the surprise of their many
friends, Miss Corlnno Smith and John
Cox, two well known and popular
peoplo of this city, were united In
marriage by Rev. M. L. Blaney, at
the Christian Church yesterday even
ing at 7 o'clock. Only a few friends.
and relatives of the contracting par
ties witnessed tho ceremony.
