In calling attention to the advertise- *
ment in another column of Capt. J. A.
James of Wilson with regard to cotton
seed, wedesire to state that Mr. James
made nine bales of cotton on very light
land, notwithstanding the unfavorable
seasons, and the cotton was ginned mi,
the ordinary way at John C. Land's gin
at Foresto,, shipped to H. W. Frost &
Co., Char- :ston, and brought 16 cents
perpound. We mentioned this seed to E
Mr. John P.. Graham of Davis, and he
informs us that Hon. C. M. Davis also
made four bales from the same seed on
five acres for which he has been offered
16 cents per pouud. According to the
account sales from Frost & Co., Mr.
James' nine bales of cotton raised upon
his twelve acres under adverse seasons
netted him $587.03, which, according to
our judgment, is a sufficient guarantee
that the seed he is offering for sale in
these columns are worthy the thought
ful consideration of our farmers. Read4
the advertisement, and if you wish to
procure a seed which will make as
much cotton to the acre as your present
seed, but will yield nearly double the
price, then write to Mr. James right

s THE JIMSON WEED.
Probably a Legacy to U. From South
B America or Asia.
Once upon a time the name of James
town must have been -very sharply
shortened. Within the memory of
many people now living James was
L pronounced "Jeems;" In fact, we be
S lieve that that was the accepted pro
nunciation of our Virginian forefa
thers. But "Jim" must have been the
diminutive of "Jeems," as well as of
1 ames; at least we judge so because
what is popularly known as "the Jim
son weed" really Is the Jamestown
Nor is there any reason to suppose
that this contraction was made jeer
- ingly or sneeringly. More probably It
i grew Into use "jess so," and we find
- Intelligent Americans to whom it has
never occurred that there is any con
nection whatever between Jamestown
and Jimson. All the same, the au
thorities say that "Jimson" Is "short"
for the name of the place where the
English made their first permanent set
tiement in what is now the United
-States and where the Old Dominion's
first capital was located.
The jimson weed, however, Is not a
Snative plant. but probably came to us
Sfrom South America or Asia. It Is a
question how it got to Jamestown, but
we believe it is conceded that it is not1
IndIgenous to Virginia. If it was de
liberately and designedly Imported, It
must have been because of its medic
Inal value; certainly not for Its odor,
which Is vile; certainly not for its flow
ers and leaves, because they do not
compare in beauty with those of scores

erste The ind You Have Always Bought'
Away back in the middle of the summer, while
others were enjoying a vacation, we were busy
4 planning how we could save you worry in the se
lection of gifts for the holidays. The' result of
our work is seen in the array of holiday goods
that we are now showing.
The Assortment is Endless. -
In extent and variety our stock far exceeds any
thing ever seen here before.
While the stock is so large, probably the most
distinctive thing about it is that everything is of
worthy quality-is worth giving. Worthiness
was the test applied to everything when selec
tions were being made.
Buying such an unusually large stock we are
able to make a big saving- in the prices. We were
also able to pick upsome very decided bargains.
All of this savmng wegive you the advantage of.
It Must be Seen.
We don't want to tell on-we want you to come
and see for yourself. While it will be impossible -
to exhaust it before iristmas, still there are a
number of bargains tnat will surely be picked up
by the early shoppers. Come early while the as
sortment is complete and avoid the usual- worry
that always comes when the choosing is put of;
until the last minute.
Here are a few of the lines.
