Your Cotton Crop Can Be Increased
It costs no more to cultivate an acre that produces
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
their yield 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
say: "We have the finest crop of cotton we ever saw, and all the
people around here think the same. We actually counted 447 bolls
on one stalk. Another stalk had by actual count 409 bolls, forms,
squares and blossoms. On about 8 acres we expect to make about
2 bales to the acre, and an estimate of adjoining farms not so fer
tilized and under other cultural methods, will yield only 1 bale to

Drummond, always kind hearted and

Ovide and found the unfortunate
Moise suffering from what he diag

medicine," said the doctor-poet, "I ask

dose was to be administered every
three hours during the night, and, try

as possible, I said: 'Be sure and keep
watch on Moise tonight and give him
a teaspoonful of this at 9 o'clock, 12
o'clock and at 3 and 6 in the morning.
Come and see me about 9 o'clock in
Ovide understood and departed. The
following morning he again presented
himelf, and Drummond asked: "How's
Moise? Did you do as I told you?"
"Ma brudder Moise, I t'ink he some

LATHAM'S HOME RUN.
And How It Figured In Having Him

Charley Comiskey told the story of
how Arxae Latham came to be called
"One spring during Latham's term of
service with the good old St. Louis

into the opening game of the season

thing like this:
"'Give to Arlie der t'ings vat he

"Latham didn't do a thing on the
strength of that order but replenish
his wardrobe. For three days in

A Curious Structure.
On the road from Clifton downs to
Avonmouth the tiaveler will pass, in
the Avon gorge, a curious structure to
whifh a singular tradition is attached,
relates the London Tatler. The story
is that a person named Cook about a
century ago was told by a gypsy in the
Leigh woods that his only son would
be killed by a serpent before he reach
ed the age of twenty-one. To avert
this he built a high tower and shut his
son in the topmost room with the in
tention of secluding him there until the
fatal age was passed. However, by ac
cident a viper was taken up in a fagot
to the room to light the' fire, and it
crept from the fagot and bit the boy
so that he died. Therefore the tower
was called Cook's Folly, and that is its
name to this day, whatever Is the true

known. The first guest to arrive, hay
ing explained to the butler that, being.f
unacquainted- with his host, he would C

introduce him, lingered in the hall.
The second' was in the same predica
ment, as were the third, fourth, fifth
and other guests up to the ninth, who
chanced to be "the eminent personage"
himself. Upon the dilemma being ex
