Your Cotton Crop Can Be Increased X
It costs no more to cultivate an acre that produces a
two bales of cotton than an acre which produces only
one-quarter of a bale. Why not see what you can do
Other men have been able to double and more than double
eld per acre with a liberal application of Virginia-Carolina
Messrs. Lucas & Jackson of Kelsey County, Tenn., used Vir
ginia-Carolina Fertilizer on about 55 acres planted with cotton, and t<
say: "We have the finest crop of cotton we ever saw, and all the T
people around here think the same. We actually counted 447 bolls si
on one stalk. Another stalk had by actual count 409 bolls, forms, t<
squares and blossoms. On about 8 acres we expect to make about p
2 bales to the acre, and an estimate of adjoining farms not so fer- t.
tilized ari under other cultural methods, will yield only 1 bale to
five acres." t
An interesting picture of the cotton plants referred to will be d
found in the new 1909 Virginia-Carolina Farmers' Year Book, copy C
of which may be had from your fertilizer dealer, or will be sent
free, if you write our nearest sales office.

First Giraffe In Europe.
Dr. Johnson, as is well known, re
fused for many months to believe in
the Lisbon earthquake, and Parisians
formerly were just as skeptical as to
the existence of the giraffe, a new spec
imen of which has just been added to
the Jardin des Plantes. The earliest
specimen of these gentle creatures was
seen in Paris in the reign of Louis
XVI. We learn from a French con
temporary that the giraffe was firs't
heard of in 1787, when it was de
scribed by a Frenchman named Le
vaillant, who had journeyed in the
lands of the Hottentots and Kaffirs.
When the explorer referred to the an
imals with the long necks he was look
ed upon as a Munchausen and told
that he was such in not the politest
language. It was only when some liv
in'g specimens arrived in the French
capital that Levaillant's reputation for
veracity was re-established, and then
the aninals for a long time formed the
sensation of Paris, not only among the
multitude, but in all scientific circles.
"The Light That Failed."
A wealthy Riverina squatter, now
departed, as he used to phrase it, "to
the great muster," was noted almost
as much for his Attic wit As for his
parsimony. He also stuttered very
badly and helped along his halting ut
terance with a frequent ejaculation of
"D'ye see? D'ye see?" His niggardly
traits gained him widespread local un
popularity and the bitter enmity of
sundowners, who were always vigor
ously refused rations at his stations.
Smarting under this unusual inhos
pitality, some disappointed swaggerers
once set fire to one of th'e squatter's
wool sheds and then wrote upon a
gate: "We've well burnt down your
wool shed. D'ye see? D'ye see?"
Of course it caught the big man's
eye when next he passed through. For
a moment he contemplated the an
nouncement and then with a sardonic
grin took the stump of a blue pencil
from his pocket and scribbled under
neath: "It was well insured. D'ye see?
D'ye see?7"-London Standard.
Slim Women of Hungary.
The women of Hungary regard a
small waist as the greatest possible
beady, and they will endure anything
in order to put on an appearance of be
Ing small waisted. Tight lacing is car
ried on to an extraordinary extent, and
the waist is compressed by force untl
one would thisk that the owner could
hardly breathe. Yet In this confined
state the women will plunge into the
wildest of Hungarian dances, known
as the czardas, and prance frantically
like ballet dancers until at the end
they sink, gasping, exhausted and well
-nigh suffocated, on a sofa. As they
,grow older most of these slim beauties
-become enormously stout, and then
t they are regarded as quite old. The
Hungarians, though they resemble the
Turks in many ways, have not the
Turkish admiration for fat women or
the English admiratioh for elderly
made up belles. Hungary is aland of
Islim young~ women, and when they
lose their figure they lose their attrac
tiveness and their power.-Modern So
