THERE IS NO SUBSTITUTE

Tho Farmers From Wh m The Adver
tlser Has Heard Express
From what Thk Advertiser has
been able to learn, tho Florodo a cot
ton should bring about three cents the
pound more than the ordinary long
staple. It should bring at least two
cents more, and possibly tho difference
would bo more than three cents.
II. W. Frost & Co., of Charleston, is a
reliable house which handles these
long staples. The Advertiser be
lieves that any of this cotton shipped to
them will be sold to advantage and
that the customers will receive satis
faction. Of course it may be that as
good a price may be had from local
buyers. This house in Charleston has
been mentioned to The Advertiser
as one dealing In such staples and the
recommendation comes from good peo
ple who have hed dealings with them.
Messrs. George Dorroh, of Gray
Court, acd James T. Crew's, of Laurens,
are farmors who have found the Floro
dora satisfactory. Mr. Dorroh found
that the yield was as good with the
sjtno cultivation as the phort staple
grown near by, and Mr. Crews' expe
rience was similar. Tho latter says that
the i^lorodora yield was larger,
A good deal of this cotton will be
plan'ed this year.

WHAT THE NATION
* SPENT LAST YEAR.
Over Six Hundred Million Dollars
Pensions by Far Made the
The expenditures of itle United
States for the fiscal year which ended
June 80, 1008, are thus tabulated by tho
Secretary of the Treasury:
Civil and miscellaneous, $124,044,289.74
Pension?, . 138,425,646.07
Postal Service,. 134,224,448.24
The payments for pensions continue
to be the greatest single expense of the
Government. Pensions cost about
fifty-six millions more than the navy,
about twenty millions more than the
army, about as much as the postal ser
vice, after adding the deficiency in tho
postal revenue to the $134,000,000.
A VERY CLOSE CALL.
"I stuck to my engine, although
every joint ached and every nerve was
racked with pain." writes C. W. Bell
amy, a locomotive fireman, of Burling
ton, Iowa. "I was weak and pale, with
out appetite and all run down. As I
was about to give up, I got a bottlo of
Eleotric Bitters, and after taking it, I
felt as well as I ever did in my life."

gain new life, strength and vigor from
their use. Try them. Satisfaction

Mr. John H. Cullom, Editor of the
Garland, Texas, News, has written a
letter of congratulations to the manu
facturers of Chamborlain's Cough
Remedy as follows: "Slxtoen years ago
when our first child was a baby he was
subject to croupy spells and we would
be very uneasy about him. We began
using Chamberlain's Cough Remedy In
1887, and finding it such a reliable
remedy for colds and croup, we have
never been without it lu the houso
since that time. We have five chil
dren and have given it to all of them
with good results. One good feature
of this remedy is that it is not disa
greeable to take and our babies really
like it. Another is that it Is not dan
gerous and there Is no risk from giving
an overdose. I congratulate you upon
the success of your remedy. For sale
