a distinctly belligerent attitude, her
cubs frisking about her. Bailey was
so surprised that he pulled up his
horses and waited for developments.
He didn't have to wait very long
With a growl and a flourish of her
forepaws, the bear made for the mail
carrier, the cubs waddling along
after her on all fours. Bailey s horse
snorted in terror at this unexpected
move by Mother Bruin, and whirled
about In the road so sharply that the
wagon was upset and the mall and
mail carrier spilled out in the dust.
As Bailey picked himself up he
pulled his automatic revolver out of
his pocket and fired at the bear,
which was almost on him. The bullet
went true, and she rolled over in the
road, snarling and clawing. She
seemed to have enough of battle, for
the next minute she picked herself
up and scampered off into the woods
with the cubs, leaving a trail of blood
As soon as the shaken Bailey could
collect himself, he caught his horses,
which had stopped after running a
short distance down the road, and.

that came along soon after he righted
his wagon and hitched up.

YOU COULDN'T expeft a half fed child to grow
up big and strong, could you? Nor can a big
profit-making crop come from your soil, unless
the crop is properly fed.
Few soils known have enough plant foods to remain
fertile when cultivated. Exacting crops draw heavily
upon its fertility.
Ammonia, Phosphoric Acid and Potash are drawn
from the soil?some crops requiring a great deal of one
and less of another. Fertilizers must be mixed as
accurately as a doctor's prescription to supply the
elements that are lacking, that the crop takes out.
The fertilizers made by us are conscientiously made.
We could cheapen them, and analysis would not show
the difference. But we prefer to give you the utmost
in plant foods for the price you pay. For we consider
reputation our richest asset.
The bountiful yields of cotton?the mammoth yields
of corn?produced by them, are winning for them

DO YOUR UPS TURN DOWN?
An easy recognizable sign of the good behavior of your stamach is when the corners of
your lips turn upward without apparent effort. If you smile, up go the lips; if you are feeling
good you are easily pleased, and this fact alone induces an upward tendency to the lip corners.
But if you are blue and down in the mouth, my, don't the corners drop. The trouble probably
arises from one or more of three (3) causes: Indigestion, Rilliousness, Liver Troubles. Don't re
sort to pills and violent purgatives which make you worse. These three ills need very simple and
general treatment. A few doses of R. L. T., a purely vegetable compound immediately be
gins to afford relief. When the clouds hang dark and heavy, and won't let the sunshine through,
take R. L. T. It's a great thing for you. 0, my brethren, for a fellow just to take R. L. T.
