UpoD the whole, March promises to
be very propitious for all agricultural
work. I said iu February forecast
that "February will be rather unfavorable
for pushing agrieultural work."
Has it not been verified up to the present?
Now we will Fee for March.
My forecasts of the weather are not
"prophecies" or "guesses," but are
calculations made on scientific princi
pies from what I have discovered from
fifteen years daily observations. The
rainy days or cold waves may be of
shorter or longer daration than is
laid down ic the forecast an^ proba
bly they may reach further south?that

"I hobbled into Mr. Blackmon's
drugstore one evening," says Wesley
Nelson, of Hamilton, Ga , "and he
asked me to try Chamberlain's Pain
Balm for rteumatism with which I
had suffered for a long ticae. I told
him I had no faith in any medicine as
they all failed. Hs said: 'Well if
Chamberlain's Pain Balm does not
help you, you need not pay for it.' I
took a bottle of it home and used it
according to the direction# and ib one
week I was cured, and have not ?i?ce
been troubled with rheumatism."

propitious for'a gathering of yonDg,
people, Wednesday evening witnessed j
??ric of the most deligbtfo: entertain-1
meats our reporter has ever been for;unate
