The Great Majestie Range
It is the only range in the world made of Malleable and Charcoal
It has, beyond any question of a doubt, the largest and v best
It uses about half the fuel used on other ranges, and dees better
work by far.
The Majestic All Copper Nickeled Reservoir heats the water
qnieker and hotter than any other. It is the only reservoir with a
removable frame.
The Charcoal Iron Body of the Great Majestic Range lasts three
times as long as a steel hotly.
Being made of non-breakable material there is practically no ex
pense for repairing the Majestic.
As for baking, it is perfection; not only for a few months, but for
all time to come.
A GREAT MAJESTIC RANGE lasts three times as long as a- cheap
range, but it don't cost three times as much.

the Great Majestic Range is absolutely the best that money can buy.
Everybody Welcome.
Better Foreign Markets, Real Regu
lation of Trusts and More Cotton
Manufacturing at Home.
Tom Watson, of Georgia, at the
meeting of the Farmers' Union in
New Orleans recently made a speech
from which we make the extract be
"In civilized government there
are three great departments upon
which prosperity depends. Agricul
ture is one, manufacturing is another
and commerce is another. If the
government keeps hands off and
merely protects each man in the pos
session of his property, it is an open
field and a free fight, 'root hog. or
die.' The government can do this,
or it can protect each and every one
of these departments, in which case
the result would be about the same
as in the first. But when the govern
ment takes up one at the expense of
the others, the other two are in
jured. When it takes up two at the
expense of the third, the third lan
guishes and suffers. Analyze this
situation and you will begin to real-'
?ize what ia the matter with the
backbone of the country."
Mr. Watson reviewed the history {
of protection in this country, and de
clared the manufacturers have not
only made 8 per cent, but also clear
ed $2,000,000,000 besides. He said
that the farmer has never asked any
thing but a free field and a fair fight,
and had been denied these; that he
had never asked to have other com
modities taken to put money in his
own pocket; that no more unselifish
man was ever made in God's image
on this earth; that when there is a
pestilential swamp to drain, the
farmer drains it; that when there are
taxes to pay, the farmer pays them;
that in the early history of the
country when there were savages to
drive back, it was the farmer who
shouldered his musket and did the
work. The capture of Andre was
referred to and it was stated that
the farmers who captured him could
not be bribed.
We cotton farmers of the South
are the only people in the world who
have a monopoly and don't know
what to do with it, continued the
speaker. The Steel Trust has a mo
nopoly and knows what to do. It
sells you plows, and hoes and rakes,
and you have to pay the price. The
Harvester Trust makes you pay th-?
price. And all the time they are
selling in South America and Russia
at cheaper prices than at home. The
Coal Trust fixes the price of the coat.
It is their business to fix the price
and yours to pay the price.
Congress could have said; "No,
I won't burden the agriculturist with
such loads as these." Congress could
have broadened your markets, ob
tained greater mercantile trade by
reciprocity and other treaties. One
commodity could be exchanged for
another on terms fair to both. But
its policies have caused the other
nations to adopt retalitory tactics
and narrowed the foreign markets
to the produtcts of the American ag
President McKinley sent a Com
mission to France to negotiate a
treaty that would have meaut the
entry into that country of cottonseed
products from the South, valued at
$20,000,000 a year. But the Seuate
killed it. and killed it because it
contained a clause favoring the im
portation of Freuch hosiery. Some
little old New England mill would
have been affected, and so $20,000,
000 a year to the South had to b?
In 1907, the sale of cotton abroad
amounted to 9,70S,000 bales. This
: cotton was manufactured and ship
ped back again and sold at higher
prices, so that the net profit to our
couutry was only $9,000,000. Don t
that show that we are selling cotio i
two low? Why not manufacture ev
ery bale right here?
The high tariff and trust system
has restricted and, narrowed the
market, cut off the demand and left
a surplus. The remedy lies in a low
er tariff. Let the foreigner in, re
duce the price of American goods
that are now protected, and thereby
increase the demand for raw cotton
for the greater the demand is the
greater will be" the price. That's
I the permanent remedy. . |
I Now for immediate and temporary
I relief. I like that warehouse plan.
That takes it off. The coffee growers I
were confronted with a situation al
most similar to that which now con
fronts the cotton farmer. Did they
swamp the market with their over
production? No, they put all their
surplus in warehouses, raised the
price and compelled the consumer
to pay for not only what was market
ed, but also for what was never sold
at all.
Steamer Sinks in Philippines by
Striking on Rocks.
Manila, Nov. 2S.?The coasting
steamer Pouting, carrying a large
number of laborers from Narvacan
to the rice fields in Pangasinon prov
ince, struck a rock and sank last
night, during a storm off the town
of San Fernando, in Union Province.
It is estimated that a hundred of the
passengers and crew of the Pontiug
were drowned. The steamer Vigcaya
rescued 55.
A patrol of constabulary, which
was established Immediately after
the accident, picked up fifteen bodies
and many were coming ashore. It
is not known whether any Americans
or Europeans were aboard the wreck
ed steamer. ?
Hoy Plays Soldier and Gets Into
New York, Nov. 28.?Playing
soldier a Brooklyn yonngstor placed
a brown earthenware jar, such as i.->
used for baking beans, on his head
for a helmet, then found to his mor
tification and horror that he could
not remove it. Even more mortified
and more terrified was his mother,
who in desperation hurried the sob
bing little soldier out of the house
and boarded a car bent on taking
him to a physician.
The child could not even wipe his
tear-filled eyes, for the rim of the
jar rested on the bridge of his nose
Blushing furiously, the mother tried
to appear unconcerned in the face
of the staripg pas;ongors, but finally
ono woman grew so serious that she
I "Why does your little boy wear
a bean pot?"
"Because he can not get it off,"
replied the mother, stiffly.
"Why don't you break it with a
hammer?" some one suggested.
This proved to be a happy thought,
and as there was no hammer avail
able, the motorman was called to the
rescue. He broke the jar with his
controller. The. lijttle boy gulped
with relief, and his mother took him
home. . *
Strange Fish Taken in a Seine Oil
North Carolina Coast.
One of the rarest specimens of the
fish kingdom known to waters con
tiguous to the North Carolina coast
was captured in a seine at Mason
boro Sound Monday by William
Hewlett, a fisherman. The fish,
which was brought to the city, is
what is called "the sea bat," and
it is a perfect reproduction of a
leather wing bat on a large scale.
The fish is about fifteen inches long
and about thirty Inches across the
Strange to state, it had a thin
threadlike tail about fifteen inches
in length and on each side of the
rear appendage were two perfectly
formed gloved feet, with a smaller
diversion having the exact appear
ance of a thumb, with the other pan
of the hand mittened. The mouth
of the strange specimen was about
five inches across and on each side
of the mouth or the under side of
the body there were five "strainers"
or holes through which the fish is
said to rid itself of refuse products
resulting from the forage it picks up
at the bottom of the sea. The top
of the fish was a dark slate color
and the under part of the body was
One old negro fisherman more
than 70 years of age stated that thii
was only the second specimen of
the sea bat he had ever seen In his

Recipes of
How to Make All Sorts of Good
Things When You Kill Your Hogs
This Winter.
We print below some good old
time Souti^-ni recipes that w?re
I used before creosote, borax and oth
I er so-called preservatives were
known. In the days before the war.
I says Commissioner of Agricultu.o
Graham, of North Carolina, in the
Progressive Farmer, any one who
used these things would have but lit
tle company for Christmas. Hut
here is what we started out to say:
"In Cutting Up."
In "cutting up" the hog. cur
through the skin on each side o<
the backbone; this gives Mi" "f.it.
back" piece, which wich all surplus
fat from the hams and shoulders
goes into the lard. First-class lard
ii; generally the highest priced hog
product. I cut to sa/e all that can
be gotten.
Pork Chops.
I In taking out the spare ribs begin
at the bottom instead of at the
backbone, as is usually done. Take
out the loin, some times calie.:
griskin or sausage piece, with the
rib. Cut the rib in two lengthwise,
the bottom piece is still spare rib;
cut each rib of upper piece with at
tached meat for c':ops.
In a shout or hog weighing sixty
pounds or Jess the backbone can
be split, leaving half to each side.
Cut the lower half for "barbecue"
and then separate each rib through
the skin for chops.
How to Treat Hams.
When cut out sprinkle half tea
spoonful of powdered salt peter on;
each ham; use one part granulated
sugar, three parts good salt; put;
hams in tub or box, let remain threeij
days, break bulk and re-pack, using j
some salt. This is done to be sure j
that all parts of the ham get their j
salt. Let it lie in bulk one day'
for each pound the ham weighs, j
hang and smoke for ten days, take
down and apply to flesh of ham a|
paste of molasses and ground black I
pepper, wrap in newspaper and pack
in barrel with cut, nice hay between
hams to keep from touching.
This process is for hams from
hogs weighing 27)0 pounds or loss. 1
Those who have few haras can treat
the shoulders as hams. For hams
from hogs weighing more than 200
pounds, put in brine described beiovt
for corn beef and pickled pork, let
lie for four weeks and then smoke
until dry and treat as for lighter
Pickled Pork.
Cut the pork in pieces of suitable '
size, pack m barrel. For each 100 j1
pounds of pork prepare:
C quarts good salt,
6 gallons water,
1-4 pound saltpeter,
1 pound sugar,
1 pint molasses.
Mix cold without boiling and pour
over the beef. In a week's time it
will be ready for use, and will keen
for a year. Corn beef can be made
by using the above brine and packing
it in a barrel.
Hog Feet.
Boil until thoroughly done, split
the foot, beginning between the
hoof, fry in batter as you would fry
chicken. Nothing better about a
hog. The ears and the skull below
the eyes will do for souse, but do
not spoil feet to make it.
Liver Mush.
Boil together a skull and a haslet
(liver and lights, but not heart)
until thoroughly done, take out the
bones, mash together,"season with
sage and onions, put meal sufficient
to make a stiff dough, boil half an
hour, pour in a mold, and when cold
cut in slices and fry as needed for
Have a kit of brine and put the
tongues in as you kill your hogs.
Can mix hog and beef tongues. ?

the call and restored order.
The case of disorderly conduct has
been entered against Mrs. Shirley and
will be tried in the police court next

The trouble, it is alleged, grew
out of one of the teachers whipping
Mrs. Shirley's son for an alleged
infraction of the rules.
