FARMERS TO USE
LESS FERTILIZERS,
Action Taken at Friday's
Meeting.
THE RESOLUTIONS.
Eleven Companies Were
Heard From.
Committee Instructed 1o Continue In
vestigations and Call Another
Meeting If Advisable.
The farmers met again on the 20th
of November to hear report of the com
mittee of farmors appointed at the
former meeting. They reported that
thoy had corresponded with eleven fer
tilizer companios, nine of which re
plied but did not state what the prices
wuuld be next soaeon except one com
pany. They all reported an advance on
the materials and o labor and the
uuetlog could not unders'aod why
ammonias had advanced and there was
no such advance on cotton seed, from
which vegetable ammonia is obtained.
After a very freo and full discussiou
the fo lowing resolutions were adopted:
Whereas, the farmers have wasted a
great deal of money in the past by the
injudicious use of fertilizers, while
they have neglected their borne re
sources,
Resolved, 1st: That they recommend
to the farmers of l.aureus County that
it is to their benefit to use no fertiliz
ers at tbo advanced prices of coramer
o'al fertilizers or great'y curtail tho
quan'ity used.
Ueso'.vod 2nd: That ns to the com
mittee appointed ut tho meeting on
N ?vembcr, 0, the questions upon which
'.lio committee wero instructed to make
i quiry and rf-port Le recommitted to
s.ibl committee and that they are in
s ruo'.ed to proi-ceute th ir investiga
tion of the subject matter contained in
the resolutions adopted by the meot
iu:r of tho Hth of November and that
said committee are empowered to call
another meeting at 6uch t'inrs ss they
may think for tho best in'erest of the
fa mors.

A Tew Minnies Use of Hyomei Fonr
Times a Bay Cures Catarrh.
The pleasanteat, most convenient and
tho only scientific method for the
treatment and cure of catarrh 1? Hyo
mel. Simply put twenty drops of Hyo
moi in the inhaler that oomes with
ovory package and then breath it for
a few minutes four times a day.
It f eems remarkable that so simple a
way of treating catarrh will effect a
cure, but the most Important discover
ies of science have always been tho
timphst. By breathing Byomci in
this way every particlo of air that on
ters the air passages of tho throat and
head and goes into the lungs is charged
with a healing balsam that kills the
germs and baclll of catarrh and poothes
and allays all irritation.
The first day's use of Hyomei will
6how a decided improvement and in a
short time there will be no further trou
ble from catarrh. It* actio'n is rapid
and lasting.
You take no risk in buying Hyomei.
A complete outfit costs $1.00, and If af
ter using it you can say that It has not
helped you The Laurens Drug Co. will
return your money. What other treat
ment for catarrh Is eo'd under a guar
antee like this?
There's No Particular Secret
About making flour and yet given
the same mill, same machinery and
s iino wheat, no two milters will make
flour exactly alike. B rides the techl
nal skill there's a "knaok" in making
flour and Bransforcl's miller has it to
an exceptional degree. That's one rea
son why "Clifton'" proves so distress
ingly popular that wherever it is sold,
competitors are obliged to recognize
it as a stardard and offer their flour as
"just as good."

THE MAN BEHIND THE GUN has a pretty hard
time, and deserves a lot of credit; but how about the wo
man behind the washboard? She gets very small credit,
tho' she has given much. She credited her husband with
enough honesty and business sense to arrange for her
future comfort before he died; but she credited the wrong
man. He didn't pay: and now she is trying to scrub his
sins away on a washboard. Now, Mr. Man, don't you
create another picture like this. Write to Cox of Colum
bia, and ask him about that policy sold by the State L,ife
which pays your widow the policy, together with every
dollar you have paid in should you die in twenty years.

cough and the parents did not know
what to give it. I suggested that if
