The Bank for Your Savings.
O YOU KNOW just what your cotton and corn
need, and arc you furnishing it in such quantities
as required ami in .such shape that the
planil can use it ?
Suppose you should put the food for your stock in a
box, nail it up and phicc it in their trough--would you ex
pect them to thrive and grow fat ?
Well, did it ever occur to you that when you use lumpy,
badly mixed fertilizers you arc putting this same proposi
tion up to your crops?offering them plant food in such
shape that they can't gel to it?
Fertilizers, to do your crops any good, must dissolve in
the soil waters. These are constantly in motion, rising to
the surface during the day and sinking at nicht ? passing
and rcpasshig the roots of the plant, which absorb the food
contained in the water?and this is the only way in which
the plant can feed.
Therefore, when you buy fertilizer, you should do so
with the idea ol" furnishing food for your crop -and on the
same principle that you should purchase food for your
stock. It should not only contain the necessary Ammonia,
Phosphoric Acid and Potash, but above all else these
should be In soluble form?the mechanical condition
of the fertilizer should be such as to permit the plant to
absorb every particle of it, and the goods should be manu
factured from materials that will not give up their plant
food at one time, but furnish a steady supply throughout
the entire growing season.
This is the fertilizer you should have and can |?et?
in only one way. It is impossible to produce a goods like
this by the dry-mixing of raw materials, w hethe r you r;o
this fit home with a shovel and a screen or buy it from
someone who has made it the same way?the only differ
ence being in the quantity.
These materials must be ground to a powder, and it re
quires machinery costing thousands of dollars to do it
properly. They must then be so manipulated that when
complete, you have a compound, each ounce- of which is
exactly lilce every other ounce, and not a mixture, one
part of which would contain too much Ammonia and too
little Potash, while another part would be exactly the
opposite?and all of it contain plant food locked up and
Remember that the chemical analysis of a fertilizer is no
test of ils crop growing qualities. The chemist can pul
verize lumps olid by the use of various means search out
the plant food ; your crop can't.
You can take an axe, break open the box and get the
corn ; your mule can't*

Mr. William Watts Hall.
With the annoucemenl of the pass
ing of Major Hemphlll, from the News
and Courier to the Times Bispnteh of
Richmond, speculation became rife as
to who would take the stand at the
masthead of the News and Courier.
Naturally. W. W. Ball, Ol The State,
was considered and Ihe following from
Bamberg Herald will he read with
more than the usual Intcresl hy the
many friends of Mr. Hall in Greenville
ami throughout the state and the
"We hear it rumored around pretty
strong that W. W. Lall, now of the
Columbia State, will take the position
of editor of the News and Courier
when Maj. Ilemjhill .noes to Richmond
next month. Mr. Ball was formerly
on the Btaff of the News and Courier,
leaving that paper some months ago
to go with The State. We are very
I glad if the news he true. Mr. Mall is
a brilliant newspaper man. a writer of
force and conviction, and withal a
most companionable man. He will no
doubl succeed in bringing the News
and Courier and Charleston into closer
touch with the balance of the state.
! which will he a good thing all around."
