]lest Cough Medicine for Children.
"I am very glad to say a few words
in praise of Chamberlain's Cough
Remedy" writes Mrs. Lida Dewey, Mil
waukee, Wis. "I have used it for
years both for my children and myself
and it never fails to relieve and cure
a cough or cold. No family with chil
drein should be without it as it gives
almost immediate relief in cases of
croup." Chamberlain's Cough Reme
dy is pleasant and safe to take, which
is of great importance when a medi

CORN CLUB PRIZES
OFFERED FOR 1914
South Carolina Plans to Win Back

tio plans are already under way in
Georgia, South Carolina and other
Southern states for the 1914 corn club
contests. These contests have in
creased the South's corn production
by millions of dollars during the past
H. G. Hastings, chairman of the ag
ricultural committee of the Atlanta
Chamber of Commerce, has renewed
for 1914 his annual offer of corn club
prizes in South Carolina and nine
other Southern states. Mr. Hastings
offers $1,200 in prizes. Of this amount
$100 goes to South Carolina in three
prizes of $50, $30 and $20 each. These
prizes are awarded under the direction
of the United States government of

Word conies that the South Caro
lina boys are going to make a power
ful effort this year to regain the South
ern record, which they held in 1912,
but which was taken away from them
in 1913 by Alabama. The South Car
olina record of 228 bushels, held by
Jerry Moore, was beaten by 232 bush
els, raised by Walker Lee Dunson of
An interesting echo from last year's
contest comes from Arkansas, where
the $50 prize, offered by Mr. Hastings,
was won by a 14-year-old girl, Miss
Delphine Moore, vho competed against
2,400 boys, because there was no girls'
club in the state.
The corn club work has made won
derful- advances throughout the South.
The fathers of the corn club boys, who
first looked on the movement as a
fad, have at last come to realize its
great practical value and are now just
as much interested as their sons.
