sent to the asylum, Sheriff Mayo
sold some cotton for over $100.00

Prof. Ernest McDaniel closed
a very successful term of school at
Cloverport Friday, and on Wednes
day resumed his duties as principal
of the Hickory Valley High School.
Through the efforts of Prof. Mc
Daniel, about $1,000 have been
subscribed for the erection of a new
school building at the Valley and
work will begin upon same at once.
The present building, which has
been soi l to Mr. Robert Ferguson,
who will convert it into a residence,
will be used until the completiop
of the new building. There is no
teacher in Hardeman County more
thorough, painstaking, enthusiastic
in his work, none more devoted to
the profession, than Prof. McDan

Valley are to be congratulated upon
securing his services.
Editou JJui.lkiin As the
question li'is been repeatedly askei
of me, how did )ou come out with
your cabbagf?" I hand you th
following for publication. I think
best to give the cost of production
in an itemized form, which will
follow in this article. I shipped
157 crates which brought me $150.-
12. Now as to cost of production:
Plant bed 2.00
Repairing land for plants 5 00
Crates and freight 14.52
Making crates 2 00
1 illae 2.20
(rating and hauling 7.50
Rent of land (2 acre) G.00
Total cost of production $01.22
Lea ing a net pi oil t of 88.90
From the above figures, we have
$-14 45 per acre. I think there is
some money in truck farming and
it comes to the money ridden
farmer like a shower in a drought,
remunerating the packet in time of
need. I hope to make a better
showing in 1904. Would be glad
to hear from other members of the

A Remarkable Record.
Chamberlain's Cough Remedy
has a remarkable record. It has
beeu in use for over thirty years,
during which time may million bot
tles have been sold and used. It
has long been the standard and
main reliance in the treatment of
croup in thousands of homes, yet
during all this time no case has
ever been reported to the manufac
turer in which it failed to effect a
cure. When given as soon as
the child becomes hoarse or even as
soon as the croupy cough appears, it
will prevent the attack. It is pleas
ant to take, many children like it.
It contains no opium or other
harmful substance and may be
given as confidently to a baby as to
an adult: For sale by Cox & Co.,
