A merchant must advertise, so im perative is this rule that if he fails to do so the sheriff does it for him. The Stale Alliance meets at the A. and M. College, August 22nd, and will remain in session several days. An exchange has located it. It says: Whoever is seeking a real old fashioned honest hot summer will find it here just now. A Pennsylvania bank teller went gPazy the other day and his accounts we.’c found correct. Strange things will happen. The Tunica Independent Hunks “the next Legislature should prohi bit the sales of drugs. It would be as sensible as prohibiting the sale of liquor.” Only one thousand miles of railway lias been built in 1893, and not a mile in Mississippi, except such as have been constructed by saw mills for their own use. Ibe World’s Fair is now in full bloom. Visitors are pouring in by the thousands, Hie weather is perfect and the directors aie jingling coin in their pockets. Bob Fitzsimmons say' he will never fight again for a purse of less than $20,000, and never again go cut of bis class, the middle weight, for a fight, unless it is to contest the cham pionship of the world with Corbett, Three children were born in the State of New York the other day all bound together like the celebrated Siamese twins.

The coming Pass Christian regatta promises well. The Beacon says: The committee appointed to raise funds for the regatta have almost completed their labor. They now have almost enough money sub scribed. Prizes to the value of $450 will be offered. Gen. Wade Hampton lias given the best description of the Third party element that has been given out. Here it is; “A lot of people who not satisfied with the existing condition of things and do not know exactly what they want. All they do know is they want something not in sight.” The Cooper Normal College, of Daleville, and the Hunt-Hud Heston College, of Harpersville, have con solidated under the name and style cf Coopi r-Huddleslon Collem l , Dale ville, Miss.

The Gloster, Miss., Canning Cos. commenced operations Monday for the fu st time, and put up 750 cans of peaches, only working a part of Hie day. The fruit and vegetable busi ness is anew industry in and around Gloster. and the people are anxious ly watching this new enterprise, aod •if it can be successfully run it will help tne raisers of fruit and vegeta bles to find a market for their pro ducts. To Kii! Johnson Grass. A writer in the Texas Farmer Las llie following to say in regard to kill ing Johnson and Coco grasses. If the remedy should fail to accomplish what he claims for it, nothing would be lost in the experiment. If you are bothered with either Johnson or Coco grass, following plan of extermination: Johnson grass or any other grass can be killed and effectually destroy ed in one year in the following man ner, and at the same time two' valua ble crops can be raised on the land and the land will be benefited by the cultivation. In September plow the ground well and sow thick with red rust proof oats. In May or June follow ing when the oats a’e in the milk cut for fodder and remove quickly from the ground. Plow the ground and sow thick with common cow peas. Cut the pea vines for fodder when pods aic nearly ripe. In this way two valuable crops will be made from th,e land. The dense shading and dampness to the land caused by the growing oats and peas the entire year will destroy the roots and life of any other vegetable matter in the soil, I killed both Coco and John son grass in this way and the land was left rich and mellow. The Best Judge in the State. According to the Brookhavcn Ci tizen Judge S. H. Terral is the best judge in the State. That excellent Brookhavcn paper says: At the late term of the Circuit court just closed in Marion county, JuctgeS. 11. Terral sentenced three “white cape” to ten years each in the penitentiary. This will certainly break the back bone of White Capism in Marion county. Had the “white caps” indicted in our county been trea f ed to a dose of “Terralism” in stead of being treated as they were, we would have no further fear of vio lei c \ In our opinion Judge Terral is the best Judge in the State, a brave, true-hearted, Christian gentle man who enforces the law as it stands on the .“Statute books regardless of creed, color or standing. In order to pacify the religious element of the country the directors of the World’s Fair closed the Fair gales on Sunday. In the holy name of religion, says an exchange, in hon or to the sancity of the Sabbath, we must decidedly object to the open ing of the World’s Fair to the pub lic. The Sabbath of the Greeks is Monday, of the Persians Tuesday, of the Abyssinians Wednesday, of tno Egyptians Thursday, of the Turks Friday, of the Jews and the Seventh Day Adventists Saturday, and (he large body of Christian Sun day. A dispatch from Mississippi City, the 24th, says: John T Evans, post master at Airey, Miss., was arraigned before United States Commissioner Collins Phelps to-day on a complaint made by Post Office Inspector Geo. C. Maynard, charging him with hav ing made false returns to the Audi tor of the treasury for the post office department. Inspector Maynard and U. S. District Attorney Albert Lee appeared in their official capacities, but Evans waived examination and was released on bond of S3OO to ap pear at the August terra of the U. S. court, Lunker’s Alliance of Lafayette county, Miss., has taken the correct idea of the sub-treasury in the fol lowing sensible resolution; “That we will try to nr ke our sub-treasury at home, and try to store it with corn, hay, oats, fodder, pork, potatoes, peas, cabbage, turnips, beets, rice, parsnips, molasses, pinders and then if we have any time left, we will put in two or three bales of cotton and we advise our brethren to do the same. We believe that this is the only way that will be of any use to us as farmers.” Miss Kate Power’s World’s Fair letter in the C.-L. records the follow / mg amusing incident. A Northern visitor beholding a specimen of lorg moss in the Mississippi Women’s Exhibit, proceeded to enlighten his family in regard to it with this ex planation: “Now (his, my dears, is (lie famous blue grass for which Mis" sis ippi is famous all the world over, l! lias, you perceive, a slightly gray ish tinge at present, but that is due to the fact that it has been cut sev eral weeks.” The Siam-France controversy will prove a “fizzle.” MORE POTASH NEEDED. Notes on Fertilizing' from Prof* lirookt, of MaiMfihasetti. Fodder crops, pasture grasses, corn stover and hay all remove large amounts of potash from the soil, and these crops occupy a large proportion of our Improved lands. 3. The urine of our domestic animals contains about four-fifths of the total potash of their excrements. 3. When urine is allowed to waste, the manure is poor In potash. 4. When manures arc exposed to rains, much of the potash, being solu ble, is washed away. 6. Nearly all the special fertilizers are especially rich iu phosphoric acid, and do not contain enough potash. 6. Superphosphates were the first fer tilizers to come into general use among our farmers. 7. IV hen a farmer buys a fertilizer, he still, nine times out of ten, calls for a phosphate. 8. Asa result of the above conditions, our soils seem to be quite generally in need of more liberal applications of potash. 9. In the case of corn the need of pot ash appears to be particularly prom inent. 10. For a good crop of corn the fertil izer used should supply 100 to 135 pounds of actual potash per acre; 200 to 250 pounds of muriate of potash, or one ton (fifty bushels) of good wood ashes will do this. 11. With ordinary farm or stable manure it will generally pay to use some potash for corn; 125 to 150 pounds of muriate of potash has given profita ble results. 12. The liberal use potash means more clover in our fields, more nitrogen taken from the air, more milk in the pail, a richer manure heap, and store houses and * hams full to overflowing. It means also a sod which when turned will help every other crop. 18. For the potato crop the sulphate appears to be much superior to the muriate of potash, promoting both yield and quality in much higher de gree; 300 to 400 pounds of high grade sulphate of potash furnishes enbugh of this element. 14. For oats, rye and grass, nitrate of soda applied just as the growth be gins to spring has proved very benefi cial; 300 to 400 pounds per acre should be applied.—Prof. W. P. Brooks, Mass achusetts Agricultural College. DAMS FOR PONDS. The Best and Cheapest Are Made of Tim ber and Plank. A pond of clean water supplied by a small stream is valuable to any farm. There will be a supply of water for the live stock, for cutting ice in the winter, and the pond is a source of coolness in the hot weather and is always pleasant to look at. The dam required, however, must be made in such a way that the water will uot soak through it and gradually wash it away, and it must be impenetrable to muskrats, crawfish or other fish that would disturb it were it of earth. The best and cheapest dam is made of timber and plank. A frame is first built, as shown in the engraving. A sufficient number of frames are placed across the stream and bedded in the bottom of it so they will resist the pressure of the water. Stones are thrown in among them, which will give them ability to resist the weight of the water. The face is then covered FRAME FOR A BAM. with hoards, laid closely, nud these are covered with tarred roofing felt. A second covering of boards is laid on this and a water-tight dam is made. It is necessary to make the front of the dam quite closi at the bot tom by cementing the joint, if a supply of clay for puddling is not handy. This part of the dam should be placed in the stream, and the sides of it where the water is the deepest. It is best to carry these frames the whole length of the dam, but not necessary, as the water may he kept back by driv ing short planks in the ground as a sheet piling, and covering the spaces between these with the roofing felt, and this with boards. The outside of this part of the dam should be heaped with earth, to resist the pressure of the water against it as well as the out side, which sustains the hoarding in the center. But that part of the dam which is in contact with the running water should bo of plank only, and there should be plank or brush where the water falls, to prevent the under mining of the dam. —American Agri culturist. Money Made by a Farmer’s Wife. I find no part of farming that pays as docs our hogs. Last spring were born eleven little pigs. I fed and took care of them. In the fall nine more were born. At six weeks old these sold at 117. The spring after feeding the soft corn up brought f>3s, thus making 8103 for my work. They were in the pen and I did not have to worry for fear my number would not come home ut night as a woman does in raising poul try. But the woman can raise poultry, too. Mine brought *3O. This with my hog money my husband found quite a help, for we are paying for a home liks a great many others. —A Michigan Reader, iu Farm -”d Home. Subscribe far THE ECHO. HERE AND THERE. —Don’t permit sows and pigs to sleep on manure piles. Such stuff is ■ better for vegetable than animal beds. —ln the production of milk and but ter fat there is no food so good and cheap as good pasture grass. 4 —Whenever a crop becomes foul with weeds and grass you may write it down in your memorandum that it is a crop which will not be economically pro duced. —The chief benefit from grinding grain and cutting long feed is in the reduction of waste. Feeding unthreshed oats without cutting is very wasteful. —When a manufacturer shuts off his steam he is earning absolutely nothing; same way with animals; -shut off the feed and growth stops,and like a stalled • wagon, is hard to start. —The whin has done more harm among horses than any five hundred sensible men can overcome with good. It is the parent of every conceivable vice, or the conserve!- of those which are pre-existing. —lt depends much upon the farmer's location whether he should keep this or that breed of sheep. If he is near a good city market the mutton breeds will be profitable. Others will find it best to keep sheep for both wool and mutton, but all farmers should keep sheep. —The suggestion that molasses, on account of its cheapness and value for the purpose, be utilized for stock feed, is probably a good one. During the civil war cavalry soldiers in the Louis iana sugar region, not only used sugar '. their principal article of diet, but fed it to their horses in large quantities—: ail they would eat. in fact—and the animals thrived, and. like their masters, every day grew fonder of it. Sugar has not the laxative properties of molasses, which will prevent the too free use of the latter, and make it especially valu able in cases where a mild laxative in gredient is desired. I Mr, Oeo, If, Turner Awful Worst Case of Scrofula the Doctors Ever Saw Completely Cured by HOOD’S SARSAPARILLA. " 'When I wot 4 or 6 years old I had a scrof ulous sore on the middle Anger of my left hand, which got so bad that the doctors out the huger off, and later took off more than half my hand. Then the sore broke out on my arm, came out on my neck and (ace on both sides, nearly destroying the sight of one eye, also on my right arm. Doctors said It was the Worst Case of Scrofula they ever saw. It was simply awful ! Five years ago I began to take Hood’s Sarsaparilla. Gradually I found that the sores were begin ning to heal. I kept on till I had taken ten bottles, ten dollars! Just think of what a return I got for that investment! A thou* •and per cent? Yes, many thousand. For the past 4 years I have had no sores. X Work all the Time. Before, 1 could do no work. I know not what to say strong enough to express my grat Undo to Hood’s Sarsaparilla for my perfect cure.” George W. turner, Farmer, Gal way, Saratoga county, N. Y.

The following is no exception: “I had been troubled with heart disease 85 years, much of that time very seriously. For live years I was treated by one physician con tinuously. I was in business, But obliged to retire on account of my health. A phy sician told my friends that I could not live a month. My feet and limbs were badly swol len, and I was indeed In a serious condition when a gentleman directed my attention to Ur. Miles' New Heart Cure, and said that his sister, who had been a filleted with heart dis ease, had been cured by tbe remedy, and was again a strong, healthy woman. I purchased a bottle of the Heart Cure, and In less than an hour after taking the first dose X could feel a decided improvement in the circulation of my blood. When I had taken three doses I could move my ankles, something I had not done for months and my limbs had been swol len so long that they seemed almost putritted. Before I had taken one bottle of the New Heart, Cure the swelling had all gone down, and 1 was so much hotter that I did my own work. On my recommendation six others are taking this valuable remedy.”—Mrs. Morgan, 669 W. Harrison St., Chicago, 111.
