Ifyou want promn ptreturusadvertiseinthe
is a quality some newspapers have lost sight of in these
days of "yellow" journalism. They care little for truth
. , and a great deal for temporary sensation.
It is not so with THE CHICAGO RECORD.
The success of THE RECORD rests upon its reliability.
It prints the news-all the news-and tells the truth
It is the only American newspaper outside New York city e
that has its own exclusive dispatch boat service and its
own staff correspondents and artists at the front in both
It is the best illustrated daily newspaper in the world.
Its war news service is unapproachably the best.
Says the Urbana (Ill.) Daily. Courier:
;We read the war news in the other .papers,
then we turn to THE CHICAGO RECORD to
see how much of it is true."
Sold by newsdealers everywhere and subscriptions received
by all postmasters. Address THE CHICAGO RECORD, s18 b

j AFRICAN COTTON.
Many of our farmers, no douht,re
member to have read in the newspa
pers, the description of the new cot
ton known as "Jackson's African
Experiments with this cotton have.
been made this year in the parishes of
Lafayette and St. Martin. In the
latter place the Editor of The Lafay
ette Advertiser has three acres under
cultivation and Dr. T. B. Hopkins
has four acres at Lafayette. Until
now the fields of this cotton have
evoked the utmost admiration from
the farmers, and persons competent
to judge do predict that the cotton
will yield at least two bales to the
acre without the aid of a fertilizer.
During the past year the Editor of
The Lafa'yette Advertiser has sold a
certain number of small packages of
this seed and now he is in daily re
ceipt of encouraging reports from
those who planted it, and these re
ports he publishes in his newspaper
for the information of the public.
Considering the great advantage of
the African cotton over the ordinary
varieties, it would seem advisable for
our own peopleto interest themselves
in the planting of the special seed,
and so keep up with their neighbors.
The lint of this particular cotton is
known to be the finest op the market,
and certificates attesting this fact can
be furnislied by editor Van der
Oruysen, of The Lafayette Advertis
er, to all who will apply.
This seed will be offered for sale
in-limited quantity and orders will be
filled in the rotatioi received. First
come, first served. Only one re
spon.ible agent will be appointed in
each parish and the most rigid pre
cautions will be taken *to prevent i
fraud by selling spurious seed. All
seed will be shipped direct to buyers, I
upon the order of the agent, by the t
Editor of The Lafayette Advertiser. 1
The seed in question will have the
preference over all "new seed', that
may make their appearance, as ex
periments hHve demonstrated beyond
doubt that this cotton is now well
adapted to this latitude. t
Application for agency must be
made to the Editor of The Lafayette
Advertiser, Lafayette, La., and ap
plicants must send good references. r
The editor of The Advertiser refers
to the following persons as to his t
good faith in the handling of the l
seed: Chas. D. Caffery, mayor of I
Lafayette, La. Dr. N. P. Moss, p
Pres. First Naitiorial Bank, Lafayette p
La. Chas. O. Mouton, Postmaster, I
PROFITS OF FIG CULTURE.
By an exchange from southern
Mississippi we learn that the canning
factories at Biloxi, Miss., this year
paid out the enormous sum of $20,
000 for figs alone, and that within a
)space of four weeks time. Calcasieu
parish is the natural home of the fig,
all varieties doing well here, almost
without care, and are a never-failing
crop. No matter what the conditions 1
are that de,;trby other crops of fruits
and vegetables, fibfalways come up
smiling, with a bountiful harvest.
With a canning factory located in
Lake Charles or Westlake, and prop
erly conducted, fig culture in this
parish would become a very profit-.
able industry.-Westlake Herald.

A BRUTAL MURDER.
A most cowardly and brutal mur=
Sder occurred in Crowley last Sunder
in which three men attacked and kill.
ed another by kicking and beating
him until death ensued from concus=
sion of the brain. The man killed
was Alex Davis a painter and the per=
petrators of the cowardly act are W.
Cunningham, J. O'Neil and Lewis
Farrell. One of those wretched
brought Mr. Davis and all three at
tacked him. Two others whose names
are unknown have been arrested for
complicity in the murder. Hanging
is too good for such brutes.-Rayne
THE COTTON OUTLOOK.
Last week Neill gave publicity to
his estimate on .the coming cotton
crop. He places it at 11,000,000 to
12,000,000 bales. It is claimed that
Texas alone will produce 4,000,000
bales this year. In view of these
heavy estimates the prices of cotton
has steadily declined during th;` ast
ten. days, and with one or tvwo ex
ceptions it is now lower than ever
