Coughs ami Consumption.
Coughs and colds, when neglected,
always lead to serious trouble of the
lungs. The wisest thing to do when
you have a cold that troubles you is
to get a bottle of Dr. King's New Dis
covery. You will get relief from the
first dose, and finally the cough will
disappear. O. H. Drown, of Muscadine!'

The dairymen and ?eeders of beet
cattle in this State are realizing more
and more the economical valjue In
silage as a food. If you keep dairy
'cows or beef cattle and have not a
I silo, then you should make an effort
to build one this season so (hat it
can he filled In the fall for wlntei
feeding. No person having as many
as ten cows can afford to do without
I a silo.
! What is a silo? A silo is a tank
[or pit, preferably round, with nlr.tlyht
j walls, in which green and succulent
I feed can be preserved in a slightly
fonmented condition for future use.
' Silage is one of the best and most eco.
I nomlcal bulky or rough feeds for cat
tle. A number of the dairymen are
now paying $10.00 a ton for cotton
seed hulls when they might have pro
duced silage for $1JiO to $:!.T,o a ton,
This includes the entire expenditures
for the crop from the time yon begin
cultivating the land until the silage
is stored in the silo. The cost of sil
age depends largely upon the quantity
j of corn or soghtim that you can grow
j to the acre. Some people in tills State
have produced as much as ft tons of
SllagO to the acre, while others have
not made more than three tons to the
i acre. Three tons to the acre, however.
Is an exceptionally low production.
Experiments have shown thai by the
use of silage dairymen have gotten
one-third more milk at one.third loss
cost than where hulls were used. We
are prepared to give you personal as
! sistanee in the construction of a silo
as Well as advise regarding the grow
I ing, cutting and feeding of a crop for
silage. A silo can he put up with your
own farm labor,. If you begin work
on a silo this spring, or early in the
summer, personal assistance can be
given to more people than if you wait
until August or September. A bulle
tin on ' S.I08 and Silage'' wll be ready
for distribution at an early date. For

Card of Thanks.
We take this method of extending
our heartfelt thanks and appreciation
to our many friends who were so good
and kind to us, in our greatest trial

much we appreciate their loving sym
pathies. May He that dooth all things
