ABRAHAM LINCOL HONORED.
100th Birthday Observed-The Lin
coln rarm Scene of Chief De
Hodgenville, Ky., Febraary 12.
Henceforth the birthplace of Abra
;ham Lincoln is to be mairked by a pile
of stone. The emancipator of a. race
and, more than that, the liberator of
the t'hought of a nation, builded hiis
own monument in the he.art of ilre
world, and appropriately the physi
eal structure, which has now found
a .beginning at the place where Lin
coln first saw~ the light, takes the sim
pier name of i ;memrial. It is :to be
a simple but classie building granite.
and it is ihoped that it may be com
pleted some time 'next fall, when the
then President Taft will officiate in
dedicitiing it, as theprc reint
Theodare Roosevelt. today offieiated
in layi.ng its foundatio-n stone.
The corner-stone laying took p)lace
after appropria-te foresenic ceremon
es, which were participated in by the
president of the United States, Gov
rnor Augustus E. Willson, of Ken
ueky; former governor Jos. W. Folk,
f Missouri, president of the Lincoln
Farm Association-, the Hon. Luke E.
Wright, secretary of wvar, who .spoke
as an ex-Confederate soldier; Gen.
ames Grant Wilson, of New York,
who represented the Union soldiers,
mnd I. T. Montgomery, of Mississip
i, a negro and an ex-slave. Wit-h one
exception the orators. represe.nting
ot only the conflicting sides in the
great struggle, but the present gener
tion as well; .the two political par
ies and the white and black races, as
well as ithe different sections of the
*ountry; spoke f'rom the same plat
forma with the Stars and Stripes flut
tering over them. There were pro
bably 6,000 or 8.000 people present.
President Roosevelt and his im
mediate party arrived shortly before
1 o'clock, after a~ drive over a 'heavy
red elay road from Hodgenville, and
five midnutes afierwar'ds Governor
Wilson called the assemblage togeth
.President Cordially Received.
The president was cordially and de
ferentially ~received. He 'was fre
quently interrupted by 'applause, but
it w'as always 'well timed and never
~boiste-ous 'enough to cause either an
noyance or much delay. Other speak
ers were also liberally applauded.
Mr. Roosevolt aroused -especial en
dmhsiasm, when he moutted a c'hair
and gave the crowd a better orppor
tunity to see and hear him.
In the mai:n. he confined ~himself
losely to his manuscript, but at the
beginning departred from it tu iake
reply to complimentary allusion to
himself by Crovernor Folk. The ex
iemporaneo us pairt of the speech was
in part as follows:
"Here we have t.o gre?et us me'n of
bot'h political pa:'ties. nmen represent

The Best Fertilizers for Corn
That the yield of corn from the average farm can be greatly in
creased by intelligent and liberal fertilization has been repeatedly
demonstrated. Large crops of good corn result from preparing the
land well, using the right kind and quantity of fertilizer, good seed
and proper cultivation.
will greatly "increase your yield per acre " of corn or any other crop.
In some casri remarkable results have been obtained.
Mr. C. W. Caruthers of Sumpter County, Fla., writes: " Words
cannot express the value of your fertilizer. It is really so far ahead
of other companies' goods, that it would not pay anyone to use other
brands, were they given free and put in the field. I can prove what
I say to be a fact. I made a test on five acres. I used on one half
the land youi fertilizer and on the other half another company's fertil
izer, same gra,e; the land received the same cultivation every time.
I kept a correct account of the amount of money I got of each half
and Igot $300 more from the land on which I used Virginia-Carolina
Fertilizer than I did off the other half. I got four times as'much
corn from the land on which I used your fertilizer."

Company for a free copy of the new 1909 Farmers' Year-Book or
Almanac, full of the most valuable and unprejudiced information for
