"Senator Tillman has to me the
appearance of a man good for at
least 10 or 12 years more of active
public service," said Gen. U. R.
Brooks, clerk of the supreme court,
Thursday, on his return from a visit
to Edgefield county. He saw the
I senior senator at Trenton Wednes
"The senator's eye is clear and
mentally he seems to have lost none
of his characteristic acumen," said
Gen. Brooks. "He retains an active
interest in all public affairs and
keeps himself well posted on the de
velopments from day to day. I
found him busy cutting 'roughness'
into ensilage and stowing it away
in his large silos to feed his cattle
during the winter. He takes constant
delight in all the work of his farm. "

How to Kill Weevils.
4 How shall I keep cowpeas over
for seed to avoid weevils?" Get a
good lot of the naptha moth balls
from a drug store and mix them all
through the peas and then fstore
them in tightly covered barrels or
boxes. This is the method seeds
men use. If weevils appear at any
time, open the peas and place some
carbon bisulphide in a saucer on
top of them and close up, and the
fumes will sink through and kill the
weevils. Keep fire away from this
as the fumes are explosive, But
the moth balls will usually prevent
any weevils.-Progressive Farmer.
