Longtown Items. The county campaign meeting held here on Saturday passed off -very pleasantly and w i t h o u t special incident. The meeting was held in the grove at the upper Longtown school house and was presided over by Mr. A. W. Matheson. The crowd, which probably numbered about 300, was very orderly and gave all the candidates a good hearing. The candidates for county supervisor, Messrs T. C. Leitner and J. B. Burley, spoke first. They were followed by Messrs T. M. Jordan and C. A. Robinson, candidates for county superintendent o f education. The candidates for the house of representatives spoke next. Messrs T. S. Brice, W. W.

Mr. A. L. Scruggs, can didate for treasurer, spoke next. Messrs R. C. Stevenson and E. F. Pagan, candidates for county auditor, were the last speakers on the program. After the con elusion of their speeches dinner -was announced and the large -crowd repaired to the table to -partake of the bountiful repast 'which had been so consumately prepared for the occasion. In addition to the dinner about sixty gallons of free lemonade w a s served to the crowd. The com -'ittee who had charge of the arrangements for the meeting ard of the preparation of the dinner consisted of Messrs D. W. Tidwell, Jas. C. Stewart, Jno. T. Stewart and David Smith.. Too much praise cannot be given them, for they were untiring in their efforts to make the occasion a pleasant one for everybody. To the ladies also is due equal praise, for they all brought well filled baskets, which greatly added to the other vise bountiful dinner. After dinner the crowd called -on Senator Johnson for a speech. Ie at first declined, saying that 1e was unperepared.' The crowd lowever, would not take- any ,excuses, and he finally yielded to their importunity and made an -excellent speech. Miss Mary Harrison of Ridge -way visited relatives in Longtown recently.

The constant wet weather that we have been having for the last several weeks have about ruined the fodder. A great deal that has been pulled has spoiled for the want of sunshine, and all that is not pulled is burning up on the stalk. The wet weather is also damaging the cotton, causing it to shed and rust to a great extent in this section; forms and bolls the size of bird eggs are falling off at a rapid rate. There has just been discovered in this section a large ugly dark colored bug that is boring into the cotton bolls, causing them to rot. As many as five or six dam aged bolls have been found on one stalk. The pea crop is fine; also sweet potatoes and late gardens. The campaign meeting at Wood ward last Wednesday passed off very quietly-a large crowd, a fine hash and picnic dinner and plenty for all. The ladies served ice cream and lemonade for the benefit of Concord church. A nice sum was realized. Mrs. J. A. Smith and children left last Tuesday for their home in Iowa. Mr. C. A. Neil left Monday for his home in Mayo, Fla., where he will engage in the mercantile busi ness. Miss Mary Bankhead spent last week with relatives in Longtown and Winnsboro.

Is there any winter grass really worth anything as a practical winter pasture for January and February? If so, what is it? Where can I get the seed? What is the cost? When planted? How planted? and how much seed per acre? I have a herd of grade Herefords and some Shorthorns. II want to plant something for them to graze on in January and February on prairie sloughs and bottoms. I have a fine pasture consisting of Bermuda, Johnson grass and Millilotus, which lasts from about first of March to mid dle of December. The Millilotus which comes from the seed lasting until about middle of December, and that which comes from the roots the following spring, gives good grazing by first of March and until the Johnson grass and Bermuda come in. 1 find I can not afford to feed beef cattle, when I can get only 3 to 31 cents for fat cattle. So we are forced to winter them as cheap as possible. Can 1 plant the grass you suggest in the pasture where my cattle are now running, without fencing? I will turn them in the fields about December 1st, and they will get good grazing there until about 10th to 15th of January, when I want to take them up again. I enclose stamped envel ope for reply. This is not written for publication. J. D. R. Haynesville, Ala. Comment by the Editor: We are always glad to hear of any one who is interested in the stock business and especially when they are endeavoring to raise more feed stuffs for them. We know that our people can raise cattle, that they can be made remunerative and the man ure made clear to enrich our soil. We love cattle and pastures green, and want to see more of them and a better type. Yes, you can have such a pasture as you desire, but such pastures come only as the return for money and labor. Still they will pay and pay.well; both in feed for your cattle and in teaching you how to do the right kind of work. We would like for you to carry out the following program, and report results to the Cultivator. First, take ten acres of land, fence off to itself; break it deep and harrow well. Put on all the manure you can spare; broadcast it over if possi be. Sow two acres in Dwarf Essex rape; two acres in rye and bur clover and hairy vetch; two acres in rescue grass and Russian brome; two acres in wheat and oats mixed. Our markets are pay i,. Armour & Co. over five cents for beef gross; and if we will get good beef breeds and fatten them well there is no reason why we can not get just as good prices. If we will get at matters in a business way we can not only raise cattle, but get a good mar ket price for them. Our cities are growing and they must be fed andi our fresh beef will be much better than old stale stuff shipped from Chicago. Pain from a Burn Promptly Relieved by Chamberlain's Pain Balm. A little child of Michael Strauss, of Vernon, Conn., was recently in great pain from a burn on the hand, and as cold applications only increased the inflammation, Mr. Strauss came to Mr. James N. Nichols, a local merchant, for something to Stop the pain. Mr. Nichols says: "I ad vised him to use Chaimberlain's Pain Balm, and the first application drew out the inflam petin and gave immediate relief. I have' uge< this liniment myself and recommendit very gften for cuts, burns, strains and lame badk,'and i4mp n~eer known it to disappoint." For sale by Obear Drug Co. and all medicine deal ers. Just Missed It. An ej4erly woman who had during the couirse of a somewhat eventful life buried four huisbafds encountered at the gates of the cemetery where they reposed an old but timid lover she had not seen for years. SLe took him inside and showed him, not with out a feeling of pride, the well kept tombstones of her former lords and masters. "Ab, James," she remarked feelingly, "you might have been lying there to day if you had only had a little more ooirage!"--fondon Tribune.

J., Americus, Ga.-Please send me some literature on the best manner of curing pea-vine hay. Answer: I may say, in the first place, that there is no cut and dried rule that will suit every case. I will give you our method which we have used for fifteen years or more, with perfect satis faction in saving a good quality of hay without serious losses. Cow pea vines make the best hay when cut at the time it is in bloom and just a few ripe or full pods on the vines, and properly cured, but it is more difficult to cure at that time than later. Our prac tice is to wait until there are a good many dry pods on the vines. We start the mower after the dew is off in the murning and run it until noon,'or a little later, some times. The vines are allowed to lie on the ground, provided there are no indications whatever of rain. The next morning, after the dew is gone, they are turned over or raked into windrows with a hay rake. In the afternoon we put them in cocks about five or six feet high and let them remain without any further attention un less there shall be strong indica tions of rain, in which case we cover each cock with what we call a hay cap. This is made of ordi nary seconds, sheetings or drill ings, which cost six or seven cents a yard. Each cap is six feet square with a rough eyelet hole worked in each corner. It is stretched tightly over the cock and tied down by means of a piece of twine or a whisp of hay near the bottom of the cock. Thus protected, the hay will stand until it is ready for the barn, which will be known by twisting any one of the large ptems between the thumb and fin ger. If no moisture exudes or becomes visible, the hay can be carried to the barn and stored away, or put into a large stock and covered with a few pounds of straw or grass hay. A farmer must exercise his good judgment in the details of the process from cutting to storing away. The Breath of Life. it's a significant fact that the strongest animal of its size, the gorilla, also has the largest lungs. Powerful lungs means powerful creatures. How to keep the breathing organs right should be man's chiefest study. Like thous ands of others, Mrs. Ora A. Stephens, of Port Williams, 0., has learned how to do this. She writes: "Three bottles of Dr. King's New Discovery stopped my cough of two years and cured me of what my friends thought consumption. 0, it's grand for throat and lung troubles."

He dropped us, the pink envelope and me, through a slot in a dark box, but we were rescued by a mail clerk, more's the pity, for he hit me an awful smash with a .hammner. It left my face black and blue. Then I went on a long journey of two days and when we arrived, the env~elope and me~ we were presented tto a perfect love of a girl with a pair of the stunningest blue eyes. Say, she's a dream. Well she mutilated the pink envelope, and tore the corner of me off, with a hairpin. Then she read what was inside the pink envelope. I never saw a girl b~tish so Igeaptifully. I woald be stack og her if I could. Well, she placed the writing back in the pink envelope, then she kised me! Oh, ye little godlets! Her lips were ripe as cherries and and warm as summer sun. We, the pink envelope and me,- are nestling snugly in her bosom, where we can hearbher heart throt It goes faster when she takes us out. 0, this is great! I'm a stamp -ai two center.-.

Advertising is the keynote of success in nearly every busin-ss, whether that business b e the dle velopment of a state, a city or an individual industry. Boston's proposition to spend $100,000 in advertising is more than matched by St. Louis, which expects to spend several times t.b.t amount in general advertising. The South is seeking immigration and new industries, and yet mos: sor thern legislatures would regard 5a an nual expenditure of $10,000 to attract immigration as bordering on wild extravagance, but Cuba wants immigration, aned does not need it one-half as badly as the South, and its congress has voted $1,000,000 to be expentied in that work. A few days agc a Florida planter came into the office of the Manufacturers' Record to inquire whether he could be directed to any source from which he could secure farm laborers. "My plan tation," said he, "prcduces only about 100 bales of cotton an nually, against 400 bales before the war, simply because of the lack of labor to cultivate." From a truck-grower in the same state comes a similar appeal. In fact, everywhere throughout the farm ing regions the cry for labor is as pronounced as in the factories and mines. Landowners are beg. ging for men to cultivate their idle property, furnaces and mines are running far short of their capacity because workers are not to be had, cotton mills are con suming half a million bales less than they would be u'sing if they could put their idle spindles and 2 looms to work. And yet while the South is doing much talking about these needs, it is really doing but little active work. The state which needs laborers must follow Boston's example and be ready to spend liberally to get them. The averiage man would think that certainly great indus trial interests (the factories within the city limits in 1900 exceeding in capital the aggregate manufac turing capital of Georgia and Alabama in the same year) would hardly need to advertise, but the spirit of New England knows no limit to its activities, and to this spirit is due the wealth and in dustry of that section. Surely in this good work Boston could be profitably imitated by every state and every town in the South, and likewise by every business man in -the land. Competition is the Best Seller .When You Have a Good Article to Offer. Several years ago, the Prox imity Mills, Greensboro, N. C., the largest cotton niills in the South, wanted a large quantity of paint for their mills and houses.
