BIGGEST FERTILIZER SEASON.
Movement This Tear Promises o be
Heaviest Ever Known.
That the present fertiliser season
will eellpee all former years in point
of tonnage handled and grade ol ma?
terial sent out from the city seems to
be the opinion of the business men
Interested. In support of this opinion
It Is pointed out that the total ship?
ments made from Charleson daring
the fall months of 1909 showed a
great Increase over those of the same
time during 1908, and those shipped
since January 1 of the present year
to January 85 showed an lnoreaie of
several thousand tons over thone of
the same time'during 1909. Officials
of the freight traffic department of
both the Southern and Atlantic Coast
line Railway In this city have con?
firmed this statement, although not
prepared to give out actual figures.
The fertiliser shipments, It Is stat?
ed, are increasing dally, and, the Six
mile Tarda, to the north of the city,
present a aeene of great activity at
present Several switch engine*; are
kept *on the goM by the Southern
Railway, day And night. TnousanSs. of
empty freight cars are parked In the
yard and on the spur tracks tc the
fertilizer works between the Junction
and he city and are awaiting laads.
Heavy freight locomotives will be sent
to Charleston very shortly and will
be used to haul the big fertiliser!
trains out of the city. The height of
the fertiliser season, it is expected,
will be reached about the middle of
March, when hundreds of carloads
will leave the city for interior points
every day.?News and Courier.

WHEN you start to raise chickens don't get the "FEVER"

ano then make up your mind to give your chickens something
to make them produce the desired results, don't, for the love of

matter, besides the 76c.
When you make up your mind to do a thing, either "DO IT
NOW" or don't waste time thinking about it,
This is egg-laying time. Your chickens will produce PRO?
