you can do to prevent the spread of
the disease this season. Our method
of lighting the disease is to select cot

disease has never appeared, as the
germ will live in the seed from one
year to another. If a held is affected
it is best to rotate the crop, pu.'tinr
some other crop in the land for an

This Little Chap
to grow up strong and healthy
must have food that is thoroughly
cooked. If, like for most little
ones, his morning meal consists
of oat-meal, cracked wheat, or
some similar cereal, it should ho
cooked for hours. There is noth
ing for the purpose equal to the
in which it can lie placed the last
thing in the eveninpf where it will
continue to cook throughout t he
entire night. No stirring or
watching;when "breakfast time"
comes it will be perfectly cooked,
savory, full of all its nutriment
(much of whic h is lost when cook
ed the ordinary way) and hot,
ready to serve.
Properly prepared cereals are
just as essential for "grown
ups" as for children. All food
for the table can be cooked in
the "Caloric" Cookstove far
superior to any other method
and with a great saving of
fuel, time and work.
In the "Caloric" you can
bake and roast food in its raw
state without flrat partially
cooking on tin ordinary stove
or without re-heating ii before
serving, as well as steaming,
stewing, boiling, etc.

THINKS COTTON WILL CO HIGHER.
Advises Farmers of South to Combine
and Hold Cotton far 20 Cents.
Florence, s. c.?B. D. Smith, United
Staus senator from South Carolina,
in an interview given oui Saturday
advised the tanners of tin* South to
combine and hold their cotton for n
fair price, which he estimates ut 20
cents - um d. Mr. Smith also sharp
ly critic!led the trainers of the Palnc
\ldrich law and (ensured Attorney
General \\Mck0r3ham for his prosveu
lion of the so-called hull clique in the
cotton market. .Mr. Smith based his
advice on reports from all the im
portant cotton growing states.
in r< gurd to holding cotton for high
er prices .Mr. Smith said:
i shall inn attempt to dictate to
the farmers of the South what they
shall do. Bet under tl <? circumstances
I would he delighted to see them coin
bine and hold their cotton from the
market, wherever it is possible for
them to Jo sn, until it shall bring such
price as shall measure the artificial
nrlce placed upon manufactured arti
cles by virtue of the tariff.
"My honest opinion is that 20 cents
pound for the present crop is none
too high, in view of the supply, tin
cost of production, the comparative
value 01 coiion with other textiles, and
the artificial price that now obtains
on manufactured goods."
