Prevent Ty phoid Fever.
This is the typhoid fever sea
son and everybody should do
all in their power to prevent
this disease. It can be prevent
ed by a little care. Flies are
great carriers of typhoid fever
germs. Destroy the flies and
their breeding places and ty
phoid will disappear.
We urge all our readers to be
vaccinnated to prevent this
dreadful and deadly disease.
Your doctor will vaccinate you
free of charge. This treatment
saves thousands of lives each
year. Do not put it off, but be
vaccinated today if you can. It
may save you a long spell of
sickness, doctor's bill, and per
haps your life.

ed that the most prolific field
for the improvement of upland
cotton lay in the segregation of
the many types, the testing of
each separately and the propa
gatation of those which proved
themselves of highest quality
and yielding capacity.. Dr.
Webber's w o r k, beginning
about 1900, was done under the
auspices of the United States
department of agriculture with
which he was then connected,
and continued until he severed
his connection with government
work, about eight years later.
In that brief period he produced
two excellent varieties of upland
staple cotton by selection and
pedigree breeding from short
staple sorts. These cottons, the
Columbia and Keenan, are now
planted over wide areas in
many parts of the South and
have been frequently proved to
be fully as productive as the
average of the short varieties.
