Weevil Combined With Shortage of

Nelancho!y reports are coming from
planters in this section because of
the invasion of the boll weevil. They
had been hoping that another year
would elapse before the scourge over
ran this region, but it appears that
the weevil has already penetrated as
far up the coast asM Clellanville.

In Her Mother's Home Says This
Georgia Lady, Re arding Black
Draught. Relief from Head
ache, Malaria, Chills, Etc.
Ringgold, Ga.- Mrs. Chas. qaston,
of this place, writes: .I am a, user
of Thedford's Black-Draught; in fact,
it was one of our family medicines.
Also in my mother's home, when I
was a child. - When any of us child
ren complained of headache, usually
caused by constipation, she gave us
a dose of Black-Draught, which would
rectify the trouble. Often in the
Spring, we would have malaria and
chills, or troubles of this kind, we
would take Black-Draught pretty reg
ular until the liver acted well, and
we would soon be up and around
again. We would not be without it,
for it certainly has saved us lots of
doctor bills. Just a dose of Black
Draught when not so well saves a
lot of days in bed."
Thedford's Black-Draught has been
In use for many years in the treat
ment of stomach, liver and bowel
troubles, and the popularity which It
now enjoys is proof of its merit.
If your liver is not doing its duty,
you will suffer from such disagree
able symptoms as headache, bilious
ness, constipation, indigestion, etc.,
and unless something is done, serious
trouble may result.
Thedford's Black-Draught has been
found a valuable remedy for these
troubles. It is purely vegetable, and
acts in a prompt and natural way,
regulating the liver to its proper
functions and cleansing the bowels of
Impurities. Try it. Insist on Thed
tord's, the original and genuine. l 79
should have done long ago. They
fhave for too many years, as he ex
preseled, been placing all their eggs in
one basket and 1e boll weevil means
that they will have to learn some
thing about other crops than cotton.
Immediately about Charleston, some
planters have been hopeful that the
weevil would not take possession for
another season, but their investiga
ti ns in their fields have convinced
them that the scourge is already here
by the wholesale. Whether the dam
:age to cotton in this section is a
great as some observers fear will be

Interest was aroused by the large
sale in the last issue of the long
term, or one year certificates as (011
pared with the six months certiticates.
The public demanded the former in an
amount six times greater than the
latter, doubtless because the interest
rate of 1 1-4 per cent. was believed
to be higher than will I. paid on
