Cotton Seed for Meal.
A Director R. J. Redding of the Georgia
Experiment Station, says:
"Cotton Seed Meal is a cheaper and more effective ferti
' lizer than cotton seed."
1 + "A farmer should never use cotton seed directly as a ferti- + E
+ lizer when he may exchange it for a fair equivalent of meal." +'
+ "According to chemical analysis of each, 886 pounds of cot
ton seed meal are about the equivalent in content of plant food, .
to 2000 pounds of cotton seed. But owing to the superior me
ebanical condition of the meal and its consequently greater, or
3 + more prompt availibility, it is safe to assume that
* 4' 800 pounds of meal are the full equiva-. + +
+ - lent to one ton of seed.
+ Therefore, whatever excess abova 800 pounds of meal the +'
farmer can get in exchange for a ton of seed, or by selling the + C
2 + seed and buying the meal, less the cost of hauling or freight C
i * ing. is so much clear profit in comparison with using the ton of +
$ seed directly as a fertilizer."

Ways of the Men Who Lose Their All
In Wall Street.
What becomes of the men who lose
In Wall street. They are seldom heard
of. The visitor to New York gets the
notion that the gay crowd of men at
the Waldorf-the "uptown 'street' "
comprises them all. But this crowd
is altogether misrepresentative and has
no true sign value, says a writer on
Wall street In the New Broadway Mag
You can retain your equilibrium easL
ly in watching them by remembering
that Runner of New Britain is hid
ing somewhere, a fugitive from jus
tice; that Jumper of Milwaukee is in
prison; that there are many other men
who went down hard with big crash
es, and that for every one of the big
men there are 10.000 little uwn whose
losses are smaller, but not a whit less

The others, professionals, parasites,
satellites, winners, you will find in the
cafes and hotel restaurants, making
up a large part of the crowds at Sher

Rector's, the Waldorf, Manhattan, As

Wall street by day demands the Great
White Way at ni,- .'rom the mo

game is a fast aJ furious one of
sharp trickery, clever dodging, raillery,
bluffing, hypocrisy, lying.
Nerves are constantly tense; the
brain must be clear and quick at ev

gray matter, and the flash and festivi

unnatural enough to fit in and offer
the kind of recreation desired.
When you see the name Rydale in an
advertisement or on a remedy it is a
sure sign that the remedy advertised is
compounded from the prescription of a
specialist. A specialist in a certain
disease knows more about and is better
fitted to treat that disease than enyone
else, and that is the aeason why the
Rydale remedy never fails to relieve
and so often cure the troubles for which
they are recommended. Rydale's Stom

pepsia; Rydale's Liver Tablets for liver
and bowels- Rydale's Tonic, for a sys
tem builder and sure cure for Chills
and Malaria; and Cough Elixir, for all

are four prescriptions of the best
specialists and will do all that medicine
can do. W. E. Brown & Co.
This Tourist Seemed to Have a Mania
I had met Jones before. In fact,
meeting him had become a sort of
habit The first time I saw him he
was hanging by his feet, an apoplectic,
squirming mass, on the facade of Blar
ney castle,- kissing the stone of elo
quence. My camera caught him In the
act "Gad!'' he sputtered when I told
him that his feat was immortalized.
"Is my face in it? Send mue one, will
you? That'll prove to the folks back in
Zanesville that I did it"
I had run across him again in Lon
don, where all ways meet I was saun
tering around the Whitechapel ghetto.
and through the window of an alley
tavern I noticed two men -drinking
stout One was a "bobby" in uniform.
His eyes were bleared and his face
purple. The prc file of the other looked
familiar. I wa~lked in and beheld
Jones. The policeman, startled by my
intrusion, brought himself together and
wabbled out Jones turned to me with
a look of vast reproach.
"Glad to see you again, old man, but
-why in the deuce couldn't you stay
away a little longer? I'd have had It in
half an hour more.".
"Why, his club. Lord, what a sou
venir that would have made!"
Our ways part:ed again for awhile. I
was riding a wheel over the crest of
the Black forest: near Titisee, pumping
slowly to the lop of the long, white
road. A pine cone struck my handle
bar, another knocked my hat off. and
I looked up. An aerial voice emitted a
Tyrolean halloo with much unction.
and I saw a swaying speck silhouetted
against a cloud. My instinct told me it
"Hey, old mana!" he yelled, trumpet
ing through his hand, "take my pic
ture-quick. You're just in time. Can't
hold on much longer. Camera's at foot
of tree. Lost it halfway up."
His camera was smashed, so I used
my own. "Were you expecting me?" I
asked when he shinned down, with
barked hands and frayed trousers
"No, not exactly. Look here-big
gest pine cone in Germany. from the
tallest tree on top of the highest hill in
the Schwarzwald. There's something
I admitted It, and- we stood survey
ing the panorama of mounded hills
and deep cut gorges full of the sound
of falling water.
"Lovely!" I murmured.
"What? Oh, yes. I s'pose It is. But
say-I wonder if I couldn't find a big
ger cone somewhere in these parts.
