ABOUT FEEDING HORSES.
Part of a Speech of One of the South's
Oreatest Experts in This Line,
Tho following is clipped from The
State, being a part of the speech re
cently made by Judge Henry Hammond,
of Beech Island. Judge Hammond ia
recognized as an expert on the subject
of feeding stock:
"When the farmers of the South
learn to use more of their cotton pro
ducts, learn to feed their horses and
stock with cotton seed products, it will
mean millions of dollars to the South,
part of which every farmer will save
for himself. No report has ever shown
that injury to a horse has been a result
of feeding cotton seed meal. Feed it
??very day. Thai's wdiat I do. 11 is
not a hot or a cold climate feed. Feed
not less than one pound nor more than
three, the amount to be determined by
the age, size and work of the animal.
Not only is it the most nutritious food
but it greatly aids the digestion and
general health and good appearance of
"Feed cotton seed meal with any
thing you ever heard of a horse or mule
eating corn, whole; corn, cracked; en
silage, bran, etc.. Don't stick to any
one food. (Jive a variety. Change as
the price changes. It is always best to
feed hard-working stock ground (not
too fine) feed. Cotton seed meal is fed
to best advantage when thoroughly
mixed with the other portion of the
grain part of the ration.
"If you know wdiat number of pounds
of grain will maintain your animal re
duce this two pounds for every pound
of meal you feed him. To illustrate
this if you have been giving him 11
pounds of corn give him now only 10
pounds of corn and two pounds of cot
ton seed meal. He will soon improve
and do better work than ever before."

You can have a little frame .vithsome
"lass hot-bed sashes that will come in
very handy for starting plants and bed
bing sweet potatoes in spring, and can
set in this frame lettuce from seed sown
the first Of the month, and can thus
have lettuce in winter and early spring
well headed, if attention is given to
airing the frame. Winter salad is very
acceptable and wholesome, and every
one w ho values his home table should
endeavor to supply it with lettuce all
winter and spring.
If you give attention to wdiat L have
said you will find that you have a great
relief from the usual ration of peas and

In its contention for 15-CCnt cotton
the Farmers' Union is perfectly justi
fied. It has been shown quite often
that 10-cenl cotton means very cheap
labor, so chonp that it cannot be had,
and the farmer is forced to depend to
a great extent on the assistance of the
female mcmbors of the family. With
fair living wages paid for help there is
absolutely no profit in 10 and 12-ccnt
cotton, and the man wdio owns a farm
is entitled to a fair profit on his invest
ment without being compelled to put
his wife and children at work in the
cotton Held. Farmers' Union Sun.

If houses for poultry are to he built
attend to the matter at once before
cold weather interferes with outside

In building Ihe first thing to do is to
select a proper location. The ideal one

pleased to learn that there is at least
one dreaded disease that science has
been able to cure in all its stages, and
that is Catarrh. Hall's Catarrh Cure
is the only positive cure now known to
the medical fraternity. Catarrh being
a constitutional disease requires a con

Cure is taken internally, acting directly
upon the blood and mucous surfaces of
the system, thereby destroying the
foundation of the disease, and giving
the patient strength by building up the
constitution anil assisting nature in do

3SELL AS RENOWNED PIANOS for tone, quality, elasticity
of touch and skilled workmanship as are made. 1 have no
schemes to sell a piano. When I sell a piano it is direct
from the factory to the purchaser, there being* no unnecessary ex
pense. The price is the very lowest possible and the profit shorter
than of any dealer in this section. 1 do not have pianos drayed
around and left on trial, which adds to the cost and the buyer
pays it, If you know these facts and do not buy of me (for 1 sell
for less) then you simply prefer to pay from $75 to $150.00 more,
which is nothing but robbing one's self or of your loved ones.
