Another Story- by Charles Major.
The author of "When Knighthood \
Was In Flower" and those "Uncle Tern j
Andy Hill" stories, has attempted to ,
do for German literature what he did
for English Literature in the "Knight
hood" Volume. The story is called the
: "Margrave of Bchwedt" and will be
printed in The Sunday Edition of The
Philadelphia Press in serial form, the
: II rsl chapters appearing May 16th. The
i Margrave and other characters are his
. torical personages at the Court of the
« Father of Frederick the Great. Young
Frederick and his favorite sister, Prin
, cess Wilhelmins, figure conspicuously
t in the story throughout. If you have
I ever read the story "When Knighthood
Was In Flower," you will surely ap
. predate Major's efforts in his latest
i success, "The Margrove of Schwedt."

Big Plant Closes Down.
i The Steigel Lumber Corporation at
Stokesville, has just closed its big lum
e ber plant throwing a hundred men out
of etnpleyment. The officials refuse to
s discuss the matter further than to say
s that the plant is shut down indefiuiie
- ly. It is thought that the unsettled
condition of the tariff' question bearing
s on lumber has something to do with
c cessation of operations. General >uan
u ager of the plant, Mr. J. W. Bonner,
n of Staunton, died two weeks ago, and
this, too, may have something to do
with the present situation.
Mr. Chas. Chandler of Stokesville,

growers in these States could, by improved methods of cultivation
and fertilization, undoubtedly increase the total value of the crop
are compounded with the utmost care, containing only such elements
of plant foods as can be taken up and properly assimilated by the
plant without causing injury to its quality. Years of investigation
of the cultivation and fertilization of tobacco enables the-Virginia-
Carolina Chemical Company to furnish fertilizers of superior quality
f jr the production of this crop.
Mr. J. W. Rogers, R.F.D. No. 4, Durham, N.C., writes: "I have
been using your fertilizers this year and the crops are the best looking
lhaoe ever seen — especially the tobacco crop. I have never seen any
other fertilizer which acted as quickly as yours does. The leaf
is large and waxy, cures bright, and I am satisfied will bring a big
price. Also, my neighbors in this district use your fertilizer with
the best results."
Is there any reason why you couldn't do as well ? Be sure and
ask your fertilizer dealer for a copy of the 1909 Virginia-Carolina
Year Book or Almanac, or write our nearest sales office and a copy
will be sent you free.
