WAS COTTON CROP
1roducter of 1918 Exceeded Only by
1911. Worth oier.a Billion.
Washington, June 24.-Final figures
on the 1913 cotton crop, announced
to'day by the census bureau, place it
as tie largest the United States had
gj'own with the exception of that of
1911. At the sane time the estimate
of the total value of the cr.op shows
it was the most valuable ever pro
duced, it being worth $1,043,760,000.
Tie quantity of cotton ginned from
the 1913 crop, counting round as half
bales and excluding linters, was 13,
982, 811 running bales, or 14, 156.468.
bales of 500 pounis gross weight. Cot
ton seed1 produced was 0,305,000 tons,
or which 4,579,508 tons were crushed.
i'lh valo of the cotton Is estimated
at $887,100,000 and of the seed $156,
An Interesting feature of the 1913
production was the crop of the Im
perial valley in South California,
where 22,838 bales were grown. It
has been reported the acreage plant
ed this year in the Imperial valley
will show a large increase while the
A DOCTOR'S GRATEFUL
Dr. C. 11. Lee, Newcastle, Pa.,
writes: "About 18 months ago eczema
broke out in my right ankle and
spread Io my knee. The itching was
intense. In three or four months it
went to the left ankle end leg. I got
no relief until. six nonths ago, when
I tried EX-ZEMA-FO. - The first
bottle allayed the itching, with the
second bottle, to my delight, improve
ment began and I am now about well.
In Mr. F. Dunlap's case, his hands
were in a terrible condition, but he
made a very rapid cure. Gladly use
my name, if it can be of any use to
you." EX-ZEMA-FO is the only
remedy for Eczema, Tetter, Salt
Rheum and all skin troubles. Sold
with the guarantee that unless results
are satisfactory to the buyer the
money is refunded. Fifty cents and
$1.00 per bottle.

Poplar Spring Dots.
<Poplar springs, J'.uno 22.--There
was a'large congregation at Poplar
Springs church yesterday and heard
an excellent sermon, preached by the
pastor, Rev. W. 11. Waters. Ills theme
was advertising for Jesus and he took
for his text Psalms 107:2, "Let the
redeemed of the Lord say so, whom
He hath redeemed from the hand of
the enemy." It would be futile for
:me to attempt to give a synopsis of
his discourse but he said that all suc
cessful business men in the secular
affairs of life, advertised their busi
ness. Just so it was necessary !or
Christians to advertise for Jesus, or
in other words as they came in con
tact with their fellow men, to tell
them what great things Jesus had
done for them.

*THlE HiEN -LOUSE.*
Clemson College, June 22.-As is
the ease with the mite, the common
lien louse is one of the poultryman's
worst enemies in summer and by
lowering the vitality of the fowls
and preventing egg production causes
a great pecuniary loss in South Caro
lina, according to F. C. -Hare, poul
try expert of the government, coop
orating with Clemson College.
The lien louse is no respecter of
age, attacking baby chicks as well as
mature fowls. On the former it ap
pears more generally on top of the
head and on the throat, causing the
common sleepy look that little chicks
often hamo. When these are examined
te large lice will be found imbedded
In thme down with their biting parts in
the chick's skull. Unless removed
promptly, the chick will die. Lice are
best killed by greasing the heads and
throats of ehicks with carbolized vase
The modern and most effective
method of killing lice on mature poul

ment. One part of ointment iN mixed
with two parts of lard, and a portion
about the size of a pea is rubbed on
the skin of the lien's body below the
vent. A space not larger than the size
of a quarter dollar should be greased,
as when a larger surface is treated the
mercury will be absorbed and the lien's
egg production decreased. A short

The lice are attracted by the moisture

is preferable to dusting liens with in

germicidal solution, It is simpler,
chelaper and more effective. However,
the mercurial ointment must not. be
applied to baby chicks or to liens sit

insect powder before sitters are placed
on eggs and twice during the hatch is
the best and safest way for sitting

A coiparatively small percentage of

ammonia and 3 pr cent of potash. in
South Carolina the ingredients are al
ways named in this order.
1. in a ton of 8-3-3 how many
pounds of available phosphoric -.cid
are there? Of ammonia? Of I)otqsh?
2. In a 200 pound sack of 8-4-4
how many pounds each of phos)lrolic

3. If cotton seed meal analyzesa 2
per, cent of phosphoric acid, 7 per cent

how many pounds of each are there in

cents per pound and the potash 4
