A Sextixel reporter met Mr. John Ca
ruthers who seemed highly pleased with
the price he received for the weed. We are
rersonally acquainted with the energetic
brothers who never fail to realize a
handsome sum for their tobacco each year.
Were our farmers to follow the example set
by these gentlemen each year in making a
specialty of curing their tobacco ,they would
not make a failure, as many do.
Another very important fact these gentle
men adhere to, is very logical, and moreover
worth emulating by our many farmer read
ers. In the spring they make it a point to
not " over-crop " themselves that is not
planting out more of the weed than they
can well work. Neither do they neglect
the small grain, crop, but make averages of
wheat, corn, oats, &c. These gentlemen are
progressive farmers in every sense of the
HAKIXO BAKING POWDER.
A New Industry Recently Established at
Last week a Sextixel reporter dropped
in on the tirm of Messrs. F. Davidson &
Co., Salisbury, to gaiu some points in re
gard to something new in the way of manu
facturing in Xnrib Carolina. They are
manufacturing a new baking powder call
ed the Magic. They put it up in pound,
six ounce and three ounce boxes and retail
it at 25, 10 and 5 cents.
"They run along" said Mr. Davidson,
with the Patapsco, both in quality, size and
price. We use about the same ingredients
as the Patapsco but in different proportions."
"Is it an alum powder ?"
' 'No sir, and a member of our firm has
been using it in his family for years."
."Ilovr about machine and boxes?"
"Well, our boxes are made in Buffalo, X.
Y. Our machine was made specially tp or
der and does the work perfectly. Our trade
mark is not yet registered and our business
is in its infancy, but next fall we shall boom
it and put a drummer on the road."
The Sextixei. is glad to see small in
dustries spring up and thrive all over the
State lor these are what will boom it up
and get business out of the old ruts.
How to Cure Whooping: Cough.
There are numerous cases of whooping
cough in and around, the city. A corres
pondent has sent" The Sextixei. the fol

Cut an onion into four or five slices,
crosswise, put a .good layer of sugar on each
slice, place the slices together as they grew

As the sugar dissolves, the juice of the

Rev. J. K. Scroggs, who lias been in
charge of Stokesbnrg M. E. Clinch for some
time has received a call to the unexpired

the best. He takes with him our most
