When Sickness Comes
When your doctor is called in, the next call is
on the druggist.
To your druggist is entrusted the responsibil
ity of seeing that the remedies prescribed are
carefully prepared, fresh and pure, and of the
required quality.
The one great big aim of our house is accuracy
in prescriptions. We permit NOTHING to inter
fere with this, and use every possible effort to
safeguard your health.
Are we your druggist? If not, may we not be?

The experiments which have been In
conducted at the Experiment Station
during the past few years have given an
us an idea of the effect of the wilt on
some of our common tomato varieties. M
The varieties may be grouped as da
Varieties which are very susceptible
to the wilt and will produce only a Th
small amount of fruit on badly in- an
fected soil: Stone, Bonny Best,
Chalk's Early Jewel, Acme.
Varieties which show some resist- bu
ance and will generally produce a part Vic
of a crop on badly infected soil be

Experiment Station, Norton, Marvel, ow
Of all the varieties that have been
tried, the Stone is the most suscept
ible to the wilt and produces the Car
poorest crop on badly infected soil. hol
This variety cannot be grown satis
factorily in those sections where the
wilt is bad. r
Farmers Beg Cotton-Club Boys to
Sell Seed.
The outstanding feature of club
work in this parish was the yield
made by members of the boys' cotton
club, reports Felix Dabadle, agent in 2
Evangeline Parish. The average was Im
461 pouinds of lint cotton to the acre, old
the yields ranging from 300 pounds
to 610 pounds. The boys' cotton was all
all ginned on the same day and on lug
the same cleaned gin. It was inter- old
eating to note that many farmers
were at the gin begging the boys to to1
sell them cotton seed for planting. 8t0(
