AN INTERESTING LETTER. Mr. J. B. Jordan, Prescott, Ark. Dear Sir: Your favor of the 22nd receiv ed and we regret to learn that the crops there are very poor, having sustained considerable damage from drouth and boll wevil. This is about the same report we are having from practically all over the territory, except where advanced cultural methods have been employed. Where early maturing varieties of cot tan have been planted, fertilizer liberally used and properly put down and the crops given gord cultivation, the yield has been as satisfactory as could be wanted. The writer visited a large upland plantation near Shreveport about a week ago. This plantation has been infested by the boll wevil for four or five years, and the weather conditions there were identically the same as in other parts of the territory, that is,ex cessive rains during May, a drouth in June and the first part of July, followed by rains for about two weeks. This planters crop of cotton amounts to about i 400 bales, ranging from one half to a bale yer acre. He planted Triumph cotton, used Meridian fertilizer exclusively and liberal ly, and gave his crop good culti vation onc( a week, and says so Opera House TUESDAY, SEPT. 29/08, 9 - * 9 LE COMTE & FLESHER PRESENT TNE OOROEOUS SCENIC PRODUCTION A Savage King WITH MARIE DALE METflOPOUTAN CAST SUn OH SALE AT TEAAYT «E» MO* TO HIT OFFICE.

She knew that some kind of a thief was getting them but could not catch him. Last night while in the back yard we heard a disturbance among the chickens, calling our better half to bring a light we charged upon the hen houge and found in the coop where she had her old hen and baby chicks a large black snake about—well we wont say how long for fear Jim Snod grass will object, but we soon exterminated his snakeship. the highest bidder for cash in hand, the following property to wit: One wagon, corn and cotton seed, full outfit of the farming utensils and household and kitchen furniture. Sale will begin promptly at 10 oclock a. m. Gome early arid get bargains. G. E. Waddle. ll/UP Al EVERY business enterprise claims in its adver e tising to have the “large it stock, the best quality and cheapest prices, ” the prospective purchaser knows that they all are not stating facts. A visit to the Nevada County Drug Store will convince you that we have by far the largest stock of any drug store in town. You can see that for yourself. If you will ask to be shown anything in school supplies, toilet articles, or anything else kept in a first-class store of this kind, you will realise that you can get the very best that money will buy. If prices and quality are considered and you'can get more for your money elsewhere than you caa here, we won’t ask your trade. Remember please, that the time has come when you can get your prescriptions filled with Park, Davis & Co. pharmacals without sending to Little Rock or Texar kana. Come and see us or Phone 65. Nevada Country Drug Store m. a far as he is concerned the boll wevil problem is solved, and next year he will use double the amount of fertilizer that he used this year and is assured of a good crop despite the weevil. This farmer’s crop was made by Au gust 1, as the weevil destroyed all fruit that formed after that date. This is only one of many in stances that we know of where similar results have • een obtain ed, but improved methods were used in producing these crops. There is no reason in the world why farmers of your section can not do as well, but they will suf fer great hardship if they con tinue to attempt to grow cotton in the manner that their grand fathers did. If we can be of any assistance to you in furnishing information in regard to the proper methods of growing cotton, etc., we will be glad to do so. Yours, Meridian Fertilizer Factory, Shreveport Plant. - S. S. Jennings^ Mgr. NEGRESS TO DRAW PENSION Little Rock, Ark., Sept 26. — Auditor Moor is up against a proposition. The law says a wife of a Confederate pensioner can draw the pension even after the death of the pensioner, with the presentation of the proper affi davits. Some time ago a pension was allowed to Jacob Shibb, of Lafayette county. He drew the pension until his death and a warrant was issued for his wife, when Auditor Moore discovered she was a negress and held it up. The woman claims Schibb had negro blood in his veins, and she was legally married to him. If she makes this proof Auditor Moore will have no recourse but to allow the claim of the woman and pay her the amount owed her by the state. CHURCHES and PASTORS METMIIST CNUHCH.
