Another Advance in Cotton Market Monday. Nine and a quarter cents waspaid for cotton in Americus yesterday; not for one bale but for all the best grades on the market. An adyance of fifteen points in con tracts caused the jump. And just now it really seems that much higher prices may be expected, though the prudent farmer is not going to miss a good thing by re fusing nine cents now. It is so much more than he expected when the crop was planted. However, he is to be congratulated upon the present price of cotton. It is indeed a long lane that has no turning point. The drought is simply playing havoc with the crop and the yield will be largely curtailed. In fact, no one would be surprised to see the market soon reach ten cents. Everything depends upon the con tinuation of the burning drought. Probably forty bales were received here yesterday and, as stated, prices ranged from 9 to 9 1-4 cents. There are several buyers in the field and the demand is good. Better have a good medicine and not use it than to need it and not baye it. See? Then just before you get hurt, buy a bottle of Dr. Tichonor’s Anti septic. It is a record breaker for Wounds, Burns, Bruises, Scalds, etc., for man and beast. 50c. a bottle at all drug stores.

The Seaboard Air Line Railway is sued recently a circular relative to the payment of debts, which will be of in terest to employes. In plain words the circular goes on to state that em ployes who do not pay their just debts will be dropped. According to the circular, it is or dered that immediately upon the serv ice of any garnishee process, upon any officer of this company, that such officer at once advise by telegraph the general counsel and paymaster, the name of the employe whose wages are garnisheed; how and where employed; the amount due him from the company on the date of service of process; whether married or single, and the hour and date of service; that imme diately upon receipt of notice the pay master will advise the division super intendents of the facts of the case, and division superintendents will make a record of the same, and if it appears that the wages of the said employe have been at any time heretofore gar nisheed, then the superintendent shall at once discharge said employe from the service of the company. Neither can employes give orders upon the paymaster for amounts duecr to become due. The circular says farther: “The practice of employes giving orders upon the paymasters for amounts due or to become due is prohibited, and if any such order is at any time hereafter given, the paymaster is here by prohibited from accepting or pay ing the same; that he shall at once no tify the superintendent of the division upon which the party giving such order is employed, and said superintendent shall make a record of the fact and dis charge the party giving such order from the service of the company. Di vision superintendents are enjoined to enforce this regulation firmly, as it is necessary to an efficient service, and the company cannot continue in its service men who interfere with the successful operation of the paymaster’s department by a failure to meet their obligations.” These circulars have been posted in Americus and at other points along the line for information of employes.

Davenport PUMPING ONE MILLION GALLONS Great Consumption of Water During Hot Weather. Americus consumes a vast quantity of water, which has been increased considerably during the torrid weather of the past ten days. Supt. Ansley said yesterday that sometimes as much as a million gallons per day was pumped through the mains, the aver age daily consumption being from 800,000 to 1,000,000 gallons. A great deal of this is used for street and lawn sprinkling, and while there is no sign of a diminution in the supply of water, consumers should exercise care and not waste it. The weather is still in tensely hot, and unless it rains soon the supply may be diminished. En gineer Nix has the pumping station in excellent condition, and just now the city has all the pure artesian water wanted.

KILLING DOVES BY HUNDREDS. Great Slaughter at a Roost North of Americus. Americus sportsmen are having a great time with the doves since the season opened a week ago. There is a roosting place two miles above the city where the doves come by hundreds late in the afternoon. A day or two ago a party of local sportsmen took stands near the roost and killed more than three hundred of the birds as they came in toward nightfall. They are plentiful this season, and dove pies can be seen on many dinner tables here just now. A Monster Devil Fish Destroying its victims, is a type of Constipation. The power of this mur derous malady if felt on orgons and nerves and muscles and brain. There’s no health till it’s overcome. But Dr. King’s New Life Pills are a safe and certain cure.

As stated in Sunday’s Times-Record er, the city authorities will today be gin the long delayed work of curbing College street. A start will be made at Barlow and the work completed to Lee, a distance of about GOO feet. When thia is finished a start will be made at Furlow, one block away, and pushed along Lee to the artesian well, a dis tance of three fourths of a mile. Sev eral carloads of granite are on hand here for tnis work and property owners on both streets are extremely anxious to see the curbing put down without any further delay. V. W.
