No Worms In a Healthy Child
All children troubled with worms have an ur,
healthy color, which indicates poor blood, and as a
rule, there is more or less stomach disturbance.
GROVE'S TASTELESS chill TONIC given regularly
for two or three weeks will enrich the blood, iim
prove the digestion, and act as a General Strength
ening Tonic to the whole system. Nature will then
throw off or dispel the worns, and the Child will be
in perfect health. Pleasant to take 60c per bottl.

that It wlH be Ready for Storage of
This Year's Crop.
The sweet potato warehouse being
erected in iaiurens is nearing com

tug to a letter being malied to a large
numbiletr of fariimers by Farm Demon
strator 1). .l. .loore. Tihe warehouse
Is located near tle freight depot and
is said to be IIe secontd largest inl
the state. 'it i. being built -by capi
,tal subscribed by local people anid is
intended for ile benelit of the 'farm
ers of the county.
According to tihe planus for storing
the potatoes, a notice will be giveli
when potatoes sliould be gathered and
a date selected when the crop may
be brought in so that the entire crop
may be stored at one time to avoid
injury to the first potatoes stored.
The letter of .Mr. Aloore was as fol
The sweet potato storage house at
Laurens Is nearing completion and
will be ready for this crop of sweet
potatoes. The next time you are in
town go down to the old livestock pen
near the freight depot and see how
this sweet potato house is being built.
Sweet potatoes will be cured and
held in storage in the warehouse this
winter for 20c a bushel or 20 per cent
of the potatoes stored. When you stop
to thinkt that an average of from 50
(o 100 per cent of sweet potatoes rot
when stored in banks, whereas an av
erage of about 2 per cent rot in these
storage houses, you will see that these
charges are very reasonable.
You are urged to store your crop
of potatoes in this warehouse this fall.
There is storage space for 7,500 bush
els, which is ample for our present
needs. Potatoes may be stored in
crates, which -will be furnished by the
warehouse company at a nominal cost,
or in bins, Iach man's potatoes wili
be labeled and kept separate. it will
be to your advantage to store your po
tatoes whether you plan to market
them in the spring when prices are
highest or use them for your own ta
ble or for seed. If you lplan to market
your potatoes, it is especially advised
that you use bushel crates. The mar
het price of sweet potatoes properly
sorted and crated Is enough higher
than for potatoes In bulk to more than
pay the cost of tlhe crate.
