Qaits Cotton, ,M I;c'. $4,034
Yazoo Citv, Miss., Sent. 21.— 1: is now up ;o 1 ue record keepers to enter the name of J. .1. Mc Gra’u, of the Vaughan neighbor hood. near this city, on their books as the progressive, boll weevil-proof farmer. Here’s this Yazoo county farmer’s record for ‘the past year: Forty hogs sold at $12 each;._$ 480.00 'Nine lambs at$ti Orich _ 54.00 Ten calves at $15 each_ 150 00 Growth on 40 cattle_ 400.00 Forty tons hay__400 00 Eighteen hundred bu. corn_ 1,800.00 Five hundred bu. peas_ 750 00 Cotton__ NONE Total money value...$4,034 00 And yet they say that a man would starve to death if he quit growing cotton and depended on other farm products for his daily bread. All this $4,034 worth of farm products was raised on just 300 acres, with the aid of two hired hands ar.d two mules. Besides , the 1800 bushels of corn Mr. Me Graw will offer for sale, he made enough to run his place until the next crop. And, too, it must be mentioned that he has a large* smoke house - chock full of all kinds of homej grown food for the table this; winter. There are Irish potatoes, ! sweet potatoes, garden truck of all kinds, chickens, butter and eggs, velvet beans, hams and many other things. His tenants planted cotton, not he, and they will probably make leak than 40 bales. Mr. McGraw will plant crimson clover and a!-; falfa this fail. . r Five Captains Here is an interesting clipping from an American publication in i the year 1854. It is entitledj “Five Captains:” There were five captains; chanced to meet—.one Russian, one Turk, one Frenchman, one American and one Englishman. One of these captains proposed a champagne supper, each one to give a toast to his <own native country, or pay for the wine drinks. The Russian—“Here is to the; stars and bars of Russia, that were never pulled down.” The Turk—“Here is to the! moons of Turkey, whose corners were never clipped.” The Frenchman—“Here is to the cock of France, whose feath ers were never picked.” The American —“Here is to the stars and snipes of the United! States of America, who never, failed to defeat.” The Englishman—“Here is to! the rampant, rip roaring lion oKj Great Britain, that tore down the i s'ars and bars of Russia, clipped; the wings of Turkey, picked thej feathers of the cock of France! and ran iike h—1 from the s‘;ars; and stripes of the United state s ; of America.” ___ I Mrs. James Pryor and Miss Pryor, of! West Point, spent Wednesday in the j ■c'ty . 1 'J ——— j EVER SALIVATED BY CALOMEL? HORRIBLE! 'Calomel is Quicksilver and Acts Like Dynamite on Your Liver Calomel loses you a day! You know what calomel is. It’s mer eury; quicksilver. Calomel is .dangerous. It crashes into sour bile like dynamite, cramping and sickening you. Calomel attacks the bones and should never be put into your system. When you feel bilious, slug gish. constipated and all knocked out and believe you need a dose of dangerous calomel just re member that your druggist sells for 50 cents a Urge bot'le of Dodson's Liver Tone, winch is entirely vegetable a'd. pleasant to take ami is a perfect substi tute for calomel. It is guaranteed to' start your liver without stir ring you up inside and cannot salivate. Don’t take ca’oirH! It makes you sick the next day: it loses you a day’s work. Dodson’s Liver Tone straightens vou right up and you feel great. Give it to the children because it is per fectly harmless and doesn’t gripe. Trouble T he juice of pineapples contains fer ments used by the stomach in the di gestion of food. Pepsin is supplied by every stomach, but many times in in sufficient quantities. These two, when combined with the other ingredients in Natol Pineapple Pepsin Compound,, fur-! nish to the stomach exactly the right! proportion to digest the food. Strong ' laxatives are an injury and are not j needed where the food is properly di-: gested. Natol Pineapple Pepsin Compound is not a patent medicine, but a corrective ! and assistant in overcoming all stomach ! troubles. One bottle (50c) is usually enough to give permanet relief. St. Clair Drng Co. No. @66 This ia a prescription prepared especially for MALARIA or CHILLS A FEVER. Five or six doses will break any case, and if taken then as a tonic the Fever will not return. It acts on the liver better than Calomel and docs not grips or sicken. 25a __ I G. M.
