J'f It is a lav! that our agricultural
interest is symbolic of the roots of a
great tree of; tne forest and all other
industries of our country are but the
Jj brandies of this tree that are fed by
the soil through its roots, then in
order to stimulate growth of leaf,
branch and trunk of our tree, we must
apply fertility and culture -to its roots
Our lesson here is when the government
lends aid to large banks and reiuses
to aid tho cotton and grain warehouses

guano to the branches of a tree
to make it bear fruit.
The South Carolina Farmers' Union
has reorganized, got a new grip
on union principles and gone at it
again in earnest.
Lookout th ore, boys, the oriranizcd
farmers are marching onward with a
stronger force than ever before. We
h'avo learned more about how to pull

say thai the union is dying out
or is no good, just look around behind
this fellow and see if you can't
find a cause for this talk in the fact
that the man who is doing the talking
is the one that is dying out and is no
good; not. the union.
When you have made the discovery
alluded to here, w-e have learned that
it is best to do a good deal of looking
about and a good lot of thinking
but say nothing. This fellow will

iSorpe of our states are going into
tire union business like men that' want
to do something. Washington State
charges 'five dollars initiation fee and
as much dues or more, and some of
the Term., and Ky? pindar unions
charge from two to four dollars per
montlir in the busy season and it pays
tlieni to do it.
How about the cotton farmer thai
gels from five to Ion dollars more per
bale for his cotton on account of farmers'
Union on account of having
to pay a one dollar foe. Some men | m
can 't dodge f tlie tax on their eon- I

TERROR IN WASHINGTON? |
Another Bold Robbeiy Calls Forth
Statement?A Woman was V
the Victim. f
Washington, Feb. 15.?The charge f
that a reign of terror exists in the t
city of Washington was made in the
house of representatives today by Mr.
Sims (Tenn.) lie referred to the
robbery of a woman last evening in
the front of the British emibassy and S1
said it was the 2lsi of siudi crimes
committed in this city since Septem- >
her last. lie denounced the police j<.
force of the city and referred to the
lad that although ihere was within ^
quick call by telephone n i-egiment of
cavalry and a tvuiinenl of marines, ***
their services had not -been enlisted A
to run down the criminals who. he
said, were, as a ride, negroes.
Mr. Sims charged, in reply to a tl
question by Mr. Tawney (Minn.), a
that the increase of crime in the Dis- a
trict of Columbia was due to an in- S
efficient police adiilimstration. \'e p
declared that at the present rate, of n
increase, of crime it would be ncecs- T
sary to have a policeman tin every n
These crimes, Mr. Sims said, grew
out of the sale of cheap liquor to an
idle class of criminals who had migrated
to Washington. "Close your
St 10 licensed saloons here." lie exclaimed!
"and there won't be another
of these occurences."

Rational Pneumonia Treatment.
The most successful physicions are
now treating pneumonia by the application
of counter-irritants. They arc
learning to resist the temptation to
doctor the cough, which, after all, is
only nature's effort to relieve herself,
and are endeavoring to reach the scat
of the congestion without the use of
Some are using preparations about
as pleasant to the patient as an application
of Hind er putty, but the wisest use
a pleasant liquid counter-irritant.
The ideal remedy is Noah's Liniment.
Its earcfally compounded ingredients
possess wonderful powers of penetration
and immediately reduce the inflammation
Noah's Liniment is absolutely harmless,
and can he used freely without consultation
with a physician. Aopiy the
liniment freely over the point o'f pain or
congestion. Saturate a hot flannel and
keep it applied to that portion of the
bod}'. The effect will be almost immediate,
and in many cases the threatened
pneumonia will he dispelled before a
physician can be secured.
Rest for rheumatism, scialia, lame
back, stiff joints and muscles, sore throat,
colds, strains, sprains, cuts, bruises'

aches and pains Noah's Liniment
