FHE PRIcE OF CTTON.
In his annual address to the Southo'tn
Cotton :Spinners' Association which met
at Charlotte, Piesident George B. Hiss
said in part:
"During the past two years manufac
turers using American grown cotton
have failed to secure a proper margin
of profit and it has been during these
last two years that cotton 'manipula
tors' have held their greatest swaa'. It
is estimated that between 80.01,tXX1
and 10,tXX),tXk bales of cotton are
bought and sold annually in this coun
try while we actually produce an aver
age of but 10.tXk,001 bales annually.
"Except in a few special fabrics, the
price the 'mnupulators' have fixed for
cot ton today is out of all proportion to
the price the manufacturer can realize
for this product. is there not a remedy
for this situation' If the cotton manu
facturer couhi arrange to buy this year's
supply of raw stxk by making h:s pur

Cotton at 11 Cents.
Col. C. J. Purcell sold on Saturday
100 bales of cotton at eleven cents a
p)ound. If the farmers of this county
could get that 'price for their cotton
this fall it wvould be a great thing for
the county. A mill man in Charlotte
sold 1500 bales Saturday at 12 cents.
The price will go back before the next
crop is harvested.
GILDER & WEEKS SUCCESSFUL.
Induced Dr. Howard Company to Make
After a great deal of effort and cor
respondence, Gilder & Weeks the
popular druggists, have succeeded in
getting the Dr. Howard Company to
make a special half- price introductory
oE~er on the regular fifty cent size of
their celebrated specific for the cure of
constipation and dyspepsia.
Dr. HIoward's specific has been so re
mrarkably successful in curing constipa
tion, dyspepsia and all liver troubles,
that they are willing to return the price
p)aid in every case where it does not
So great is the demand for this speci
fic, that Gilder & Weeks have been able
to secure only a limited -supply, and
every one who is troubled with dyspep
siat, constipation or liver trouble should
call upon them at once, or send 25
cents, and get sixty doses of the best
medilcine ever made, on this special
half,.price offer, with their personal
guarantee to reftund the money if it
does not cure.
We wvould like to ask through the
columns of your paper, if there is any
erso~8n who has used Green's August
Flower' for the cure of Indigestion,
Dyspepsia, andl Liver Troubles that has
not been cured-and we also mean their
results, such as sour stomach, fermen
tation of food, habitual costiveness,
nervous dyspepsia, headaches, des pon
dent feelings, sleeplessness- in fiact,
any trouble connected with the stom
ac h or liver? This medicine has been
sold for many years in all civilized coun
tries, and we wish to correspond with
you and send you one of our books free
of coat. If you never tried August
Flowef, try a 25 cent bottle first. We
have never known of its failing. If so,
something more serious is the matter
with you. The 25 cent siso has just
been introduced this year, Regular
size 75 cents. For sale by W. E.l Pel

Letter to C. H. Cannon, Newberry, S. C.
Dear Sir: Messrs. Leachman & Ede
lin, Grafton, W. Va., had been selling
a paint, which they thought well of;
and this had occurred.
They had sold a customer 1S gallons
of it to paint his house. A few years
later. they sold the same man Oevoe
lead-and-zinc the same number of gal
lons to paint the same house. He had
7 gallons left.
The point of the tale is: 11 gallons
Devoe paints an 18-pallon house.
Of course this isn t all.
Why does 11 gal'ons Devoe go as far
as 18 gallons of other paint? Because
it is a paint, all true, no sham, and
But that isn' all. Devoe lasts longer.
No. no: you haven't got to wait ten
years to ind that out. Ten thousand
people know it. We've got their names.
Our agents know hem; they think a
heap of Devoc. i 're's no difficulty
in showing your townspeople what to
expect of Devoe. $10 will paint a $15
house: and the paint'll last twice as
long. Yours trulv,
F. W. L1vof & Co.
P. S. --The Newberry H1ardware Co.,
