HOW TO COOK THE
Recipes for tin Laurens
TO MAKE MEN TENDER.
The Proper Seasoning and
Some Sound Advice that Deserves Care
ful Attention and Consideration
by the Feminine Mind.
The following from the Worchester,
Mass.,Special is respeotfully submitted
to the dear ladles of Laurena town and
Many husbands are spoiled by mis
management in cooking and are not bo
tender and good. Some good wives
keep their husbands constantly in hot
water; others keep them in a sbew by
irritating ways. Somo roast them;
some keep them in a pickle ail their
lives; others think they need 1o be
blown up occasionally and others let
them freeze by their carelessness and
It cannot be supposed that any hus
band will be tender and good, managed
in this way. But they oan be made
really Qae and delicious when properly
cooked. In seleoting a husband a wo
man should not be guided by the sil
very appearance, as in buying fish, nor
by the golden tints, as if she wished
salmon. Be sure and select him your
self, as tastes differ. Do not go to the
market for him, as the best are always
brought to the door. It is far better
to have non?, un'ess you will learn pa
tiently how tt cook him See that the
linen in which you wrap him is nioely
washed and mended, with the required
number of strings and buttons sewed
on. A preserving kettle of the finest
poroolam is best; but if you have only
an earthenware kettle, it will do,
with care. Tie him in the kettle with
the silken cord ca'led love, as the one
oalled duty is always weak. They are
apt to fly or get burned and crusty on
the edges, s'nee like crabs and lob
sters, you have to cook them while
alive. Make a bright, steady fire out
of comfort, cheerfulness and neatness;
set him as near this as seems to agree
with him. If he sputters and fizzes do
not be anxious, as some husbands do
this until they are done. Add a little
sugar in the form of what confectioners
call kisses. But u?e no vinegar or pep
per on any account. A little spice im
proves, but it must be used with judg
Do not stick any sha'p instrument
into him to see if he is beoomlng ten

If thus cooked you will find him very
digestible, agreeing nicely with you,
and he will keep perfeotly, unless you

Where thern used to be a feeling of
uneasiness ai d worry in the household
when a child showed symptoms of
croup, there is now perfect c Idence.
This is owing to the uniform -.cobs of
Cbamberlaiirs Cough Berne in the
treatment of that disease. Mrs. M. I.
Basford, of Poolesville, Md., in speak
ing of her experience in that remedy
says: "I have a world of confidence in
Chamberlain's Cough Remedy for I
havo used it with perfect success. My
child Garland is subject to severe at
tacks of croup and it always gives him

South Carolina, announced today that
ho would be a candidate for railroad
commissioner In tho next Democratlo
primary. This statement has created
unusual interest in political cire'en
here in view of Ihe fact that the cam

launched, but it indicates a determina

most aggressive fight. There will pro

and Chairman Garris, whose term will
shortly expire, will doubtless stand
for re-election. At this time however,
whon tho importance of the commis

Major Earle was born and raised in

from there to McCabe's University at

Greenville whoro ho has been practic

With short-staple at 13 cents, a half
of bale of Florodora cotton at i.r> cents
would be worth $37.50. Mr. Mitchell
planted on Juno 5th and had a poor

However, the premium above com

That is what the originator, Mr.
Stonoy, claims for it. This year no

Consequently, it was difficult to find a
market. As soon as fifty or a hundred
bales are raised in the county there
will be plenty of bids for tho cotton
and doubtless a far better price will bo
realized than was obtained this year.

long staple. Other such mills will be
built and there are others already
The cotton for these mills will be im
ported unless it is raised horj.
Mr. Stonoy has received lettors from
reliable farmers in various sections
saying that tho yield was double that
of common varieties. Even if tho
yield is no large-, the ex'ra i>rio<
makes .he Florodora a boou 10 cot.on
This ADVERTISER has not heard
from Dr. Setzlcr, except indirectly,
that ho was delighted with the results
he obtained. Tho reports of Mr. Georgo
Dorroh, Mr. Crows and others have
already been published.
Tho best evidence that the Laurens
farmers are ploased is that none of
them have seed to sell?they are going
to plant all tho seed they made.
Thk Advertiser knows nothing
about fanning, but tho results from tho
seed it distributed have far surpassed
Its expectations. If tho experience of
Laurens farmers is repeated this year,
tho introduction of this cotton in Lau
rens will mean runny thousands of dol
lars to the cotton producers. In other
words, four cents the pound is $20 tho
bale. Twonty dollars extra on tho
bale, with the same amount of labor
and fertilizer, is wonderful.
The following is Mr. Mischcll's letter:
Princeton, s. c, Feb. 10, 1904,
Dear Sir:?1 promised sometime ago
to give my experience with Florodora
Now, to begin with, I wish to say I
have no seed for sale, (no axe to grind),
but as I obtained the seed from you,
and others a'so wish to know my ex
peiionce with said cotton, I will en
deavor to givo It.
I did not get the seed until late in
tho spring of la?t year, and had planted
all my land, but as I saw In The Ad
vertiser that Mr. Stoney said that
tho cotton would make after oats in
June, 1 planted mine after wheat in
June, planting Juno ?th. I had little,
faith in it; did not think a long-staple
cotton would have time to mako after
that date, but I turned my land,
planted on a level, fertilized in drill
with cotton j-eed meal and aold at the
rate of 300 pounds per *c.r*. I planted
half-bushel so d on half an acre of
land, but did not got over a half stand.
I mado half a balo of cotton, and ton
bushels of sood worth ao the presont
price twent-llve dollars. Tnls cotton
makos a largo weed, and I would bay
to all who contemplato planting It, to
givo good dlstanco in row and in drill.
Land that will make ono thousand
pounds of the common varieties per
acre should havo rows four foot wide
by two In tho drill. My cotton grew
very large and opened white to tho top.
I ginned this cotton with my Hall gin,
and found no trouble in ginning it. I
have a stun pie of It now, which is vory
beautiful, wortn two cents mo*?* p>>r
, ound on ihe m rk>-t than the common
cotton in flfcy bale lots, so the buyer
I naw an article in THE AnVERTISBK
soraotime ago from Dr. Setzlcr In which
he said tie would givo his experience
with Florodora. Would liko to hoar
from him. Yours truly,
e. g Mitchell.
The originator of the cotton is Mr.
L. A. Stoney, AUendalo, S. O , and he
will bo glad to hear from farmer* who
want to buy tho seed.
