The prices paid for cotton this year
should thoroughly convince every cot
ton planter that the only way for
them to maintain high. prices is by
keeping the crop down to ab-ut 6,000,
000,000 bales. A crop of that dutubrr
of bales next year will bring a great
deal more than the Samr .number of
bales bring this year, for the reasor
that a surplus exists from the big
cropi of preceding years and for the
additional reason that the anticipation
of a big acreage next spring now give:
a prc text for holding the price of the
present crop down. If the farmert
nex spring will systemaically redure
the acreage, cotton held to that titmsE
will necessarily advance.
This is a very critical period it
growing cotton, and dangers are aheac
unless the eot ton farmers avuid them b3
pursuing the only secsib'e and reason
able course open to them, and that it
persistently and systematically plan
less cotton than they did in 1895. Tb
temptation to plant large crops is ver]
great, and it will not be surprising tE
find many a planter's head turned bi
high prices, and still less surprising
will it be to find these same planter
forced to sell their cotton next yeat
for six or seven cents, and, possibly
for five cents. The difficeulty of get
ting the planters to make a straigh
horizontal reduction i< fully appre
ciated, and without orghiz-ution it i
practically impossib!e. They shosl4
remember, however, that a most thor
ough and powerful organ!z it ion exist
to keep prices down, and the power o:
this 'oiganization can only be met b:
cut nown cotton acreage. It wil I not
do to depend on the very uncertain
bad seasons and worms in Texas to
reduce the crop. We have no d->ubt
that the efforts last year to reduce the
crop did good. but by far tbe greater
cause for the higher p rice of this year
was due to bad sr-ans in Texas.
Fairfield County tmight start tL e
nucleus for a State organization, and
the S.'.ate organizafion mnight induce a
systematic movement all over the
South-. It is only three or four months
now until the planting season will be
upon us, and if the matter is not thor
oughly agitated, every white man and
every negro, who can get an animal to
pull a plow, will cultivate every acre
possible in cotton. That means ruin
next fall as sure as the snu -shall shine

should teach this lesson, so forcibly
taught for so many years.

THE TREATMENT OF HOG CHOLERA
AND SWINE PLAGUE.
Can hog cholera be cured? and, if so,
what remedy will restore the diseased
animals to health? These are the first
questions asked by the swine-grower,
and to his mind this should be the
objective point of all investigations.
With all diseases of this class, however,
prevention is cheaper and in every
way more satisfactory than medical
treatment. The great aim of the
Government and the fauimers should
be, therefore, to prevent the spread of
infectious diseases. Every swine
grower should use the utmost pre
cautions to prevent the introduction
of these plagues into his herd In
spite of such preventive measures
many herds will become infected.
Until the Federal Government or the
individual States enforce measures of
eradication, it is, consequently, legit
imate to ask and to answer the ques
tion as to the proper medical treat
Befote formulating this treatment it
.should be explained thPt a remedy
which will care every ca?e is not to be
expected. There has rever been dis
covered a remedy for a single one of
the infectious diseases of man or eni
mals which will cure every individual
attached. Some forms of these di
seases are so violent and rapid that
the animals are dead almost hetore
they are observed to be s:ck. Under
such conditiors there is not time for
the most active remedy to produce a
In many outbreaks the type of the
malady is less viru'eut a'id th re is
time to treat the anima's xfier they are
sick, and also the whole hetd after
some member- of it have .h .wn that
they a--e disea4ed. For a long time
after begi:ining the investigations of
the infectious diseases of swine, the
writer was doubtful if any remedy or
combination of remedies could be
made which would produce a'iy
marked effect. The experiments of
the last year, however, indicate that
treatment=if properly applied may be
successful. With the assistance of Dr.
E. A. de Schweinitz, chemist of the
Bureau, and Dr. V. A. Norgaard, in
spectot, a number of formulas have
been developed aid u=ed in the fie!ld
with good re,ults.
The most effictcious formuta which
has been tried is the following:
Sodium sulphate .............. - -]
These ingredients should be com
p'etely pulverized and thoroughl.
Th" dose of this mixture is a larg(
tablespoonful for each 200 poundi
.weight of hogs to he treated, and i
should be given only once a day
-When hogs are aff'ecte'd with thesi
diseases they should not be fed on cort
-alone, but they should have at teas
once a day soft feed, made by mixins
Sbran and middlings, or. middlings anc)
Icorn meal, or ground oats and corn
-or crushed wheat with hot water, ani
then stirring into this the proper quan
tity of the medicine. Hogs are fond
of this mixture, it increases their appe:
ti:e, and when they once taste of foot
Jwith which it has been mixed the:
exercised in drenching hogs or they
will be suffocated. Do not turn the
hog on its back to drench it, but pull
the cheek away from the teeth so as
t.o for-m a pouch, into which the medi
eine may be slowly poured. It will
fio;v from the cheek into the mouth,
and wihea the hog finds out what it is,
it will btop squealing and swallow
In our experiments hogs which were
so sick that they would eat not hinig
have commenced to eat very soon after
getting a dose of the remedy, and have
steadily improved until they appeared
This medicine may also be used as a
preventive of these diseases, and for
this purpose should be put in the feed
of the whole herd. Care should of
e.ourse be observed to see that each
animal receives its proper share In
ca-es where it has been given a fair
trial, it has apparently cured most of
the animals which were sick and has
stopped the progress of the disease in
the herds. It also appears to be an
excellent appetizer and stimulant of
the processes of digest ion and assimi
tation, and when givent to unthrifty
hogs it increases the appetite, cause's
them to take on flesh, and assume a
Old people who require medicine to

the true remedy in Electrie Bitters.
This medicine does not stimulate and con
tains no whiskey nor other intoxicant, but
act, as a tonic and alt retive. It acts
mitd!y on tl'e stomach and bowels, adding
strength arad giving tone to the c' gans,
thereby aiding Nature in the performance
