both men and women to raise the

i political discussion coincident with
- the opening of the New Year, has
i arisen considerably thought over the
i contest for the United States Senate.
l which will take place in 1922, over
‘ the succession to Senator Joseph Ir
i win France. Senator Smith’s friends
: say that he has no intentions of be
■ coming a candidate at that time, and
I very many people here in Baltimore
’ c.re openly talking in favor of Cong
• ressman Charles P. Coady, as the
' most available, as well as the most
capably man for the nomnation. Ml.
Coady’s record both in the State Sen
and in the House of Representa
tives at Washington, has proved that
: he is one of the best public servants
, f.iis state has ever had either at An
-1 rapolis or at Washington. He has
been on the job all the time, and m
man from Maryland has ever taken
higher rank for ability and capacity “
than he. He is an energetic, scholar
ly lawyer, is thoroughly acquainted
with the needs of the whole State at _
the National Capitol, and should l.e ~
make up his mind to become a cari-
I didate to succeed Senator France his
action will have the support of a
large number of the most influential
people n iall parts of the State.
The Weather Conditions
Changed Very Suddenly
For some weeks our people had i
been much elated over the fine weath-!
cr that was being experienced in this '■
section. In fact the weather during i
the Christmas holidays and the New;
Year season was the finest that has'
ever been witnessed here. The early
part of the week was like our regular
spring weather and no one would
have gone to the Southland for com
fort. A sudden change occurred,
however, on Wednesday afternoon
and before the midnight hour real
winter weather was on the program
And wit it all our people were very
much pleased for the conditions wer.
such as were bound to affect the good
health of any community. Winter
weather in winter and Summer
weather n isummer is the best pr
gram after all.

the pueblo feast takes place, and the
new green corn and melons are eaten
without stint.
Very naturally the question Is asked:
Are not the rattlesnakes used in the
Moki ceremonies drugged or deprived !
of their fangs? If not, why are not the j
half-nude snake dancers and priests j
bitten? White people who have seen 1
several Mokl snake dances say they '
have never known a Moki to confess
he was fanged, but every year specta
tors see snake dancers pull away from
their arms serpents that have fastened
there. Every year some of the reptiles
coll and strike at their captors. The i
best-posted scientists who have looked
upon Moki snake dances say that the
priests and dancers have a certain
manner of handling the creatures, and
tlmt the strange broth which the snake ,
handlers drink renders venom harm
less. At any rate it Is unique among
barharlc customs.
For a Persistent Cough
Some years ago H. P. Burbage, a
student at law in Greenville, S. C.,
had been troubled for a long while
with a persistent cough which he say 3
“greatly alarmed me, causing me to
fear that I was in the first stage of
consumption.” ’laving seen Cham
berlain’s Cough Remedy advertised
he concluded to try it. “I S' on felt a
remarkable change and after using
two bottles of the small size was •
permanently cured.”—Adv.

What They Do for Crops
Fertilizers are carriers of plant food in an
available and concentrated form. They contain
the three elements of plant food most needed
in crop production—nitrogen, usually referred
to as ammonia; phosphorus, known to the buyer
as available phosphoric acid, and potassium,
known as potash. Each of these elements per
forms definite functions in plant growth.
There is no mystery about the action of fer
tilizers in plant growth. Nitrogen, or ammonia,
causes quick and vigorous growth of stalk or
stem. Available phosphoric acid helps fill the
grain or fruit and hastens ripening. Potash
strengthens the straw or stalk and helps to
plump and fill the grain and font.
For the past 33 years Tilghman”s Fish Fer
tilizers have been the standard plant food in this
territory. When you use Tilghman’s Fish Ferti
lizers you are guaranteed high proportions of
these three vitally important plant foods: am
monia, phosphoric acid and potash. Take no
chances on the outcome of your crops by gam
bling with unknown brands of fertilizers when
you are guaranteed a high production fertilizer
when you use Tilghman’s.
Do not take a chance. Buy Tilghman’s Fish
Fertilizers and “B” guaranteed.
