The News today takes more than
ordinary pride in calling the atten
tion of. its readers to the announce
ment'of the food products of Cotton

vertising columns, and; wou-ld have
it remembered that -this is the very
first announcement ever made in any
newspaper anywhere of the ability .to
furnish in a commercial way this ab-1
solutely new and impor.tant article
of food. History records that the
birth .of a baby in an humble home,
in an obscure Corsican village
changed the map of Europe and
marked an epoch in the life of all
the world. -May it not prove that in

new era in the food supply of all the

the economic porblems of the Na

warning, that based upon the known g
ratio of increase in the world's pop

already dangerously near the point
of insufficiency. Magazines'- and text
books are filled with earnest and se
rious discussions pointing out the
rapidly diminishing adequacy of the
world 's wheat supply. No less an
authority than: Mr. James J. Hill
says that thie United States can no
longer class herself as a wheat ex
porting country and within a very
few years Americans must look else
where for their food supply.
But neither Mr. Hill nor the other
food eleonomistis had counted upon
this yet untouched source, which the
South stands ready to deliver.
Our forefathers were naked sav
ages when the Lake Dwellers first
made bread from broken grains of
barley, roasted in ,brush fires. Wheat
and then wheaten bread followed,
but ij has taken more than two
thousand years to make a barrel of
patent flour-and now, our own dear
land of the South always first in all
that is dearest and best; offers to a
famishing world a food supply
greater in nutritive value than the
wheat crop of all the world. The

A STARTLING STATEMENT d
New York Medical Authorities Claim
Dyspepsia to be a Pre-Disposing t
Cause of Consumption. 1
The post mortem. statistics Qf the b
big New York Hospitals show that t
some cases of consumption are due,
at least indirectly, to uneheekd dys-. t
pepsia, especially when the victim
was predisposed to tuberealosis. .
Dyspepsia wears ont the body and
brain. The weakened, irnitable stom
ach being unable to digest food, the
body does not receive the required
nourishment, and the viotim becomes
thin, weak and haggard.- As a re- h
suit, the body becomes a ferti-le field
in whih the germs of disease mayE
lodge and uourish.
Therefore, the person who permits
dyspepsia~ to progress unaiindered is
guilty of contributing toward the de
