Hundredsof Satisfied Customers.
As a matter of fact, we have hundreds
of thoroughly satisfied customers who
will drink no other whiskies. They were
all skeptical at first; all had to be con
vinced, yet we did convince them, and it
all started from the first trial order.
Now these pleased customers are walk
ing advertisements for us. Ask any
user of our whiskies, and he will tell
you enthusiastically about them. Wc
arc entirely willing to stand by what our
customers say.
What You Are Really Buying.
Bear in mind you are not buying pre
paid express packages, extraordinary in
ducements cn paper, etc., but you are
buying good whiskey, and nobody can
sell you good whiskey unless you pay a
fair price and a reasonable profit. If
the express is prepaid, you can bet your
last dollar you are paying it.
The most noted millionaires of the
country could organize a whiskey busi
ness, 'spend millions of dollars in getting

How to Increase the Yield of Fruit
Increased fruit crops are more often the result of good manage
ment than of good luck. Fruit trees and fruit plants need a liberal
supply of '
Virginia-Carolina
Fertilizers
The trees absorb plant foods that is, nitrogen, phosphoric acid
and potash from the soil just the same as any other crop. Experi
ence has shown this over and over again. ' This truth has become so
well recognized that " return to the land what the tree removes if you
would expect the best results " has become an axiom with the best
growers.
Apple, pear, peach, orange and other fruit trees soon respond to
careful fertilization. But-be sure to use .the best fertilizers.
u I made a test with other companies fertilizers," says Mr. H. O.
Lowrjr, of Manatee County, Fla., " and yours proved to be the best..
The yield where I used Virginia-Carolina Fertilizer, was just twice as
much as where the other two companies' fertilizer was used."
Hundreds of users -say Virginia-Carolina Fertilizers are cheapest
because of their good qualities give better satisfaction and quicker
results. s.
Many facts of great interest and value to fruit growers are pub
lished in the new 1909 Farmers' Year Book, a copy of which will be
sent free on application to any of our sales offices.

KITTRELL TOWNSHIP.
W. W. Ashe, North Carolina State
Forester, has an article in the April
Review of Reviews on 4The Wwte
from. Soil Eroiou in the South."
We quote from the article the follow-
i mr i n terest i n z excern t :
A yearly loss of many million dol
lars wlticli need never take place; a
loss, not of one year, like that occa
sioned by a great tire, but one which
has occurred year after year without
interruption for decades; which in
its aggregate, since the 0ml War.
nearly equals the national debt this
is the toll yearly exacted by the
erosion Iroui the farm sous of the
upland South.
1 he profits of tbe farmer noiselessly
now from his sloping fields in muddy
streams, in spite of the lare loss
the tiller almost ignores it; lie is. in
fact, frequently ignorant of it. Yet
this important loss to the farmer
represents only a portion of the
actual damage; other industries
suffer directly and indirectly from
the same cause. On account of it
there are in the dissected upland
regions of the South more than
o.OOO.OOO acres of land at one time
cultivated and now idle. Many
reasrtns have been assigned; tbe re
duced fertility of the soils; the lure of
the newer, more level, more easily
tilled lands of the West. Economic
changes which followed the civil war;
luck of labor and home markets
These have been secondary factors
Soil exhaustion and erosion are the
fundamental causes. The exhausted
"old fields." eroded. gullied, raw with
deep wounds, and red as though
stained with carnage, need only the
touch of knowledgw to become revm
fled.
The causes which produced the old
fields stilt operate to theruinof much
of the farming land. Thedecrease in
the productivity of the farms of the
Eastern United States has been gen
eral. Nowhere has it been so evident
as in the upland regions of the South,
where the loss is certainly not less
than 30 per cent, of the yields when
the lands were iresn and new. L,rosion
is the basal problem which underlies
soil exhaustion in this region, and so
prevalent and so disastrous is it that
it has become not onlv a serious
local agricultural problem, but an
important national problem as well,
seriously affecting the value of many
investments which have been made
in the region. Its enormous extent
ha not been due entirely to poor
cultural methods. The heavy rain-
f ill, the physical characteristics of
the region, the broken topography
and the close-textured sous, and in
some measure also theeconomic con
ditions have contributed to increase
it. Where methods of cultivation
suited to the local conditions have
been used, not only has erosion de
creased, but theyields have responded
in a wonderful manner, indicating
that the soils are not only not. infe
rior to tbose of other sections, but
that, on account of the ample rain
fall and the long growing season.
they have many distinct advantages
over those of other humid ports of
the country.
Tkbxs to Forjet
This from an exchange is worthy
of reading and needing acting upon
the sugvetions therein made:
At you woold increase your happiness
and prolong life, torgtt your neighbor's
faults. Forget tbe temptations. For
get the fault-finding and give a little
thought to tba cause which proToked it.
r orgrt tbe peealiaritiee of jour friends.
and only remember tbe good points
which make you fond of them. Forcet
all personal quarrels or hUtoriea you
may haTe beard by accident, and which
u repeated, would seem a thousand
times worse than they are. Plot out ot
memory, as far a possible, all tbe dis
agreeable occurrence of life; they will
come, but they will grow larger when
you remember them, and tbe constant
thoughts of tbe acta of meanness, or
worn still, malice will only tend to
make you more familiar with them.
Obliterate everything disagreeable from
yesterday; start out with a clean sheet
for today, and write upon it for sweet
memory sake, only those thine which
are lovely and lotahle.
A Staple Remedy.
The fu'lowing which is taken from
an exchange is given as a simple
remedy for the prevention of lockjaw:
bvery little while we read in the
papers that someone haa run a rusty
ait in bis loot or other portion of his
body and lockjaw resulted therefrom and
tbe patient died. If every person was
aware of a perfect remedy for snch
wounds and would apply it, then snch
reports would cease. The remedy is
simple, always at hand, can be applied
by anyone what is Utter, it is infalli
ble. It is aimnlr to smoke the wonnd
that is bruised or inflamed with a woolen
cloth. Twenty minutes in the smoke
will take the paia oat of the worst case
of inflammation arising from such a
wound. People may sneer at this rem
edy as much as they please, but when
they are afflicted with such wounds let
them try it.

Honoring the memory of (J rover
Cleveland in a great meeting in New
lork March 1 nth, on the Jad birth
day of that illustrious statesman,
President Taft delivered an address
of unusual strength. His clear and
sympathetic insight into the charac
ter of Cleveland and his enthusiastic
admiration for his masterly grasp ot
great principles, shows the President
to be, what the country already be
lieved him, a broad-minded man who
can rise above passion and prejudice
and see the virtue of an opponent.

President Taft did himself honor
in tendering to Dr. Eliot the ambas
sadorship to (IreatDritain. Dr. Eliot
was constrained to decline the honor
on two counts, the one being that he
was too poor to accept it and the
other that he is too old to properly
fill the duties of the pout, were he
rich enough to qualify for it. Dr.
Eliot's declination of the honor had
been anticipated by the country, but
President Taft has gained in the esti
mation of the people in having offered
it to him. Charlotte Observer.

Our railroads seem to lie rapidly

is said, has planned to expend in

this year, a round million of dollars.
The Southern is diliigently applying

of about eighteen months. The Dan

the double-traiking work between
that city and Lynchburg and says
that over thirty miles of the new

Meanwhile work on the new cut-off
around Lynchburg is in progress.
This contract alone call for half a
million dollars, but will be worth it

Thinks Jury Found Rijht

viger says:
We have never thought that any
man should be hung for killing the
man who eternally traduces, villifiew
or belittles him IJa man fall out with
another, he should not mention his
name. The man who is constantly
speaking evil of the man be does not
like is a villian. If you don't like a
man don't talk about bim. Carmack
exasperated (hooper by his constant
editorials. No matter what Cooper's
political acts were Carmack went too
far. We sympathize with his widow
and child but he brought on his own
death. Tbe jury found riirht. Hu
man nature must have some outlet
to turn on the man, good or bad who
constantly traduces it. We repeat
that no brave man will constantly
speak in disparagement of a man
with whom be is not friendly. W ben
enmity rises between men then silence
is mot becoming both of them.
