Horses Do (Jet Sick,
When a horses and mules are poor
il is not always and indication that they
clo not get enough to oat. Many ani
mals, just like human beings, have in
digestion or thc system ia all run down
und a tonic is needed, lt ?8 not the a.
moimi ol loo ! eaten that makes muscle
and fat. More depends upon the prop
er digestion or assimilation ot thc tooti
than is commonly supposed. Nothing
lias yet been discovered that will build
up a horse or mule better than Ash
cralt's Condition Powders, the only
remedy in its ? lass sold under a guar

considerably throughout the State and is a very large planter himself, his princi

to tair women-both being productions of Nature-and asserts that, without ex

Aside from the lact that the cot'.on is generally so very ??oed, there is a40 acre
field on the DeSaussure side on which a special test w is made, with ?.Peruvian
