WRITES INTERESTING LETTER,
Col. E. H. Aull,
Newberry, S. C.
I am herewith enclosing a clipping
from The Wichita Daily Times of th^?
18th, relative to a Boll Weevil fight
on here. I have noticed that the
farmers of my native State and county
are investigating the 'boll weevil
and they surely should do so. The>
would play havoc with Newberry county
should they ever reach there. The
information contained in this clipping
may be of interest and possibly of
alue in the future. The boll weevils
damaged the cotton crop of this county
considerably last year but not
quite so much this season.
I know you are interested in the
"welfare of the farmers of Newberry
-county and if you so desire, I will
send you any information I may get
that would assist in destroying the
boll weevil, or keeping them out 01
the county. Personally, I would be
very glad to be of any assistance to
The principal products of this part
of the State are wheat and cotton. It
is also an oil center and money is!
plentiful. The City National Bank, of j
winch Mr. P. P. Langford, is Active
Vice President, has deposits amount- j
ing to over two million and a quar-!
ter. Lots of money, eh?
I receive my paper regularly now
and appreciate it very much, I assure
you. It sounds as though you
tiave my friend, Dick Greneker with
you again. Good luck to you both. j
With best wishes and personal regards,
Yours very truly,
IW. Smith Langford.

J. W. Campbell, government* demonstration
agent for this county is
making an earnest effort to destroy j *
the boll weevils that have infested
this district during che past season,!
and to that end he announces that
lie will make a thorough canvass of j
the county in an effort' to induce as j
many farmers <as possible to turn 1
their cotton stalks under as early as
possible after the present crop has
teen gathered. It has been demon- !
strated by government tests that this'
is the best means of checking the
ravages of the pest and lie is anxious
to obtain the best results possible
'before pl-anting another crop.
In a very short canvass one day
last week he obtained a large number
of signers at Burkburnett, pledging
themselves to this plan of the gov
eminent tor destroying xne weevu
and in a short time in this city Saturday
he received a number of signatures
of those interested irf the production
of cotton, promising to carr)
cut the idea suggested in the government
Mr. Campbell expects to make an
effort to see every man in Wichita
county wh.0 is interested in the production
of cotton, and will include
not only those -who are actually farm
ing, but all who have land*upon which
the staple is raised. ,
The petition that Is being circulat-j
ed <and the names secured in the few!
hours work in this -city, is as follow*: j
"It paving 'been demonstrated by!
the government experimental stations j
that the breaking of the cotton stalk

Good news bears repeating, and
when it is confirmed after a long
lapse of time, even if we hesitated to
believe it at first hearing, we feel secure
in accepting its truth now. The
following experience of a. Newberry
woman is confirmed after five years.
Mrs. J. B. Amick, 1130 Summer :
St., Newberry, says: "I had back- :
- I e
ache and pains in ray head. I was 1
dizzy and nervous and spots often
floated before my eyes. The kidney
secreiior.s were irregular in passage '
and I knew my kidneys were out of <
order. Doan's Kidney Pills soon made
me feel better in every way and my ,
kidneys became normal." (Statement
given :March 23, 1911.)
On November 20, 1914, Mrs. Amick j
said: "Whenever I have a return or
kidney trouble, due to a cold settling
on my kidneys, I use Doan's Kidney
Pills and they give me prompt relief."
