Both quantity ami quality arc improved by properly

of Sulfate of Potash should be from 200 to 250 pounds

Many so-called "tobacco fertilizers" arc merely
ordinary, general-purpose mixed goods, containing
chlorides which injure the quality of the leaf. Insist
on goods free from chlorides and containing 10 to 12

pounds Sulfate of Potash.

TORREMS SYSTEM NOT
Was Much Discussed Lust Year hat
Free Conference Couldn't Agree* |
Columbia, Feb. 22.?The legislative
session Is Hearing an eud, at least so
far as any practical disposition of
how business Is concerned, and still
through the entire period 111 which
the houses have held sessions, not a
word has been heard of the Torrens
system of land registration. The ut
ter absence of any mention whatever
of this scheme for the better record
ing of land titles comes somewhat as
a dull climax to the various discus
sions and expenditures of gray mat
ter which were occasioned by the
proposition during the 1911 session'.
.Mr. Archie Willis, newspaper man
and representive from Laurens coun
ty and Senator .1. R. Barle of Oconee
were among the promoters of the
scheine last year, and a number of
learned and careful arguments on the
BUbjeCt were given in their respective
houses on this system of land regis
tration. Dills were introduced in both
houses to establish this system of land
registration, but members of both
houses did not appear to relish the
idea of passing so quickly a matter
of such depth and little or no action
was taken on these bills.
Houses Couldn't Agree.
The journals of the house and sen
ate; for the 1911 session show an in
teresting disposition of the Torrens
system, which is probably one of the
reasons why the system lias not been
brought to the attention of tho gen
eral assembly this year. Upon hear
ing the discussions of the senate bill
proposing to establish the Torrens
system of land registration, the sen
ators were of the opinion that this
proposition, like other things, should
be "investigated" and reported upon,
before the general assembly should
commit itself for or against it.
A Joint resolution was accordingly,
introduced by Senator Carllse of
Spartanburg (now ctn.irnian of an
other investigating conwnk.ee) "pro
viding for the appointment of a com
mission to Investigate the Tofrrens
system of land registration, to pre
pare a bill for its adoption, and to
report the same to the next animal
session of tho general assembly."
This resolution passed the senate,
and was sent to the bouse, where that
body "amended" it by striking out all
after the resolving words and insert
ing a provision that the house and
senate judiciary committees be direct
ed to Investigate and report upon the
Free Conference Split.
The senate declined to accept this
Change, and tho house insisted upon
it, and in accordance with the usual
course of legislation, a committee of
free conference, consisting of Sena
tors Carlisle. Stewart and Karle, and
Representatives Karle, Willis and lr

A minority of the committee, how
ever, consisting of Senator Barlo and
Representative Irby, returned a re
port recommending that the senate
concur in the house amendments. On
motion of Mr. Irby, the house adopted
tho minority report, and this of course
killed the bill.

From all reports, the Hon! JuICO ex

upon the digestive and secretory or
gans and some of those who have
tried it say they can scarcely net
enough to eat and that the stomach
seems able to digest anything. It
stops Indigestion, belching, the forma
tion of gas on the stomach and pains
alter meals. In a surprising manner
and its continued use for a short
time .strengthens ami tones the stom
ach ro that Indigestion is soon for
gotten. Rheumatic sufferers, too de
clare that the effect of the medicine
on sore, swollen, Itching limbs and
joints is wonderful and that the pain
simply seems to vanish.
The following extracts from a few
of the many recent reports will con
vey a good idea of the groni results
that are being obtained by its use in
many cities over the country. F,

medicine with fine results and know
