HEAVY HOWITZERS GAIN
ASCENDENCY OVER GER.
BOOM HEARD ABOVE
Eyewitness Tells of Fighting in
Brick Field* South of La Bassee
(Uv AMoriatod PmiO
LONDON', Feb. 12.-(7:86 p. m.)
The British anny 4h Franco 1B using
heavy howitzers which, according to
a report from the official "eyewitne-r"
with the expeditionary force, have
gained ascendency over the heavy
Cerman guns. The howitzers, he
states, were used In successful at
tacks on the German positions in the
brick Heids south of La Bassee Canal
a week ago tonight.
"The boom of these pieceB," tho
eyewitness said, "and the detonations
of their shells were audible 20 miles
away above the roar of the other ar
tillery. The effect of Ute lyddite
shells was terrific.
"The assault was launched against
a strong German position among tho
brick stacks. Our storming columns
rushed the work and captured it with
little loss. Prisoners afterward said
the noise ot the bursting shells was
so great and thc clouds of dust eo
thick that they did not observe our
men advancing until too late.

that the 'engineers' fell back, leaving
"A great feature of the recent fight

"On February 6 most of the enemy's
casualties*were, duo to our shell lire.
The whole of the area both behind
and in front of the trenches we now
hold were littered of the bodies of
hundreds of Germans killed since

troops actually put 'up barbed wira

"Some time ago I had a very had
cough" writea Lewis T. Davis, Black
water. Del. "My brother McCabe

Chamberlain's Cough Remedy. After
taking this I bought halt o' dosen bot

lt is about time for you to begin to think about top
dressing your grain. And we want to suggest to you that
you use a mixed goods instead of soda as we believe it will
prove satisfactory, and is much cheaper. When crops are
top dressed with soda they take on a quick, rapid growth
which makes them very tender. As anything that grows
rapidly is necessarily weak and tender, whether it is a child,
a calf, a pig, a colt or a plant. And when it grows rapidly
and is tender it becomes the same as a hot house plant and
it is unable to stand unfavorable weather or conditions as
well as if it grew slower and were stronger. lt becomes
too full of sap when it takes on this quick, rapid growth and
any unfavorable season goes hard with it. Now, this mixed
goods which we can sell you will make your grain grow slower,,
thai) soda will and when it grows slower it will fill out better
and will have a betl?r head, and make more grain, and we be
lieve will give better results.
Now, we are making a 9-6-0 goods-that is, V per
cent of Phosphoric Acid, 6 per cent of Ammonia, and no Pot
ash which we can sell you for $30 a ton. That will put on
as rapid growth as a plant can stand, consistent with safety.
And then we are making a 8-2-Vl>-l goods and a
8-3-3 goods both of which will make you a good t?p dresser
tor grain. If you knew weather and climatic conditions
would be just what grain needs, thqn soda would be the thing
for you to use. But the seasons when the weather and
climatic conditions were ideal, unless our memory is hopeless
ly at fault, have been few and far between.
A good grain crop this year will help out a condition that
may otherwise be a little close with some of us.
We can sell you this fertilizer for fall payment on ap
proved paper. And whjle we will be delighted to sell it to
you for cash we won't require that from prompt paying cus
tomers. But we will sell it to you for fall payment and ?then
you can sell your surplus grain in the summer for ?ash, and
this will tide you over until your cotton crop comes in. In
times like this some of us will have to learn to maneuver.
We believe it will pay you to side dress your cotton
and corn with mixed goods rather than soda, for the same
reason we think it will,pay you better to top dress your grain
with mixed goods rather than with soda. Soda makes it
take on the condition of a hot house plant. It is weak and
watery and sappy and can't stand droughts, or dry ,winds or
any adverse conditions that it could stand if it .were fertilized
with a mixed goods where the growth is slower and the plant
is stronger. Soda is no; a complete fertilizer. Ammonia
by itself is not a complete plant food. . It is hot a wei i bal
anced fertilizer. Your horse or mule or cow does better on
a well balanced ration, your laborers^ do better on a well
balanced ration and you do better yourself on a well-balanc
ed ration than you will if you live on just one single article of
diet-?-and so will your grain and your corn and cotton and,
other crops. Some doctors say eating an imperfectly bal
anced ration is one cause of pellagra. An imperfectly bal
anced plant food may be the cause of your crops taking rust
and blight and other troubles which crops have.
We believe it is safer to use mixed goods than it is to use
soda, taking it one year with another.
These mixed goods should be applied early, in order
for the grain to get the full benefit of them. We have them
on hand, well pulverized and dry, and ready for shipment.
The earlier you get them on now the better, lt will bring you
in much more than it costs you.
