Are You Using Nitragin?,
Your neighbors are using it and they say it increases
the yield of the crop to which it is applied, from 25 to 100
per cent. Besides this it causes that crop to store in each
acre of ground from 100 to 200 pounds of pure nitrogen~
for the benefit of the next crop. Nitrogen in commer
cial fertilizers costs YOU about 20 cents a pound. Use
Nitragin anti you get it FREE from the air. Apply it to
all your Peas, Beans and other pod bearing or legume
crops. Can you afford to pay 20 cents a pound for Nitro
gen when your neighbor gets it FREE?

New York, June 25.-The biggest
Imercantile fa1lure in the history of

city. The colmilpany, it is estimated,

tihe present time it is unable to pay.
Its assets are said to be $1.4,000,000.
.John Clalin, head bf the company
and its chief individual stockholdtr,
is the owner of a chain of nearly thir

Mr. Clallin, who was president of
both the Dry Goods and Associated,

positions today, and It is understood
that when the 11. B. Claflin Company
is reorganized its connection with both
the fornmer companies will be severed.
Cornelius N. Bliss son of the late New

Accordling to Mr. Clallin, the failure
was duie to the unprecedented shifting
of trade centres in New York city,
which compelled the concern to rely
mainly on its retail stores in other
cities for its profits.

General Villa estimated his casualties
at b~OO dand and 800 wonnded.
The battle was most hotly contested
during the present revolution in the
belief of leaders here. Fourteen thou

seemingly impregnable positions. Five
thousand prisoners were captured by
General Villa's troops. Twelve can

The federals were reported to have
dyllailited 111any buiidings of the city
before evacuating, sinying those of
Villa's troops who had. occupied the
buildings in the street fighting.
General Villa himself gave the fol

The Situation lt I'nickens.
According to the logic of one of out
enatorial candidates it will be very
hard for the delegates from this couni
ty t0 the State convention of 1914 to
prove after the lipse of a few years
that they were Anti-Bleaseites. Why?
Because the correspondent of the State
and Greenville News stated that tile
delegation was composed of four anti
aln(d two Bleaseites, and this was cop
led by a number of papers, when as
fact there was no Bleaseite delegate
from this county. Neither wis the
pickens Convention packed with Anti
Bleaseites by previous agreement. As
a proof of this thirteen clubs in the
county did not organize, and as a con
sequence had no delegates in tile Con
vention. Had either faction so de
sired they could easily have had these
clubs to organize and send delegates
who were in sympathy with their
views to the County Vonvention. No.
it just happened that tile representa
tive people of tile county are tired of
Bleaseism and everything that it rep
resents. They are tired of seeing the
laws of the state nulliiled. They ate
