It certainly is a mistake to regard
winter tin: off or Idle season of
the year.
In conversation with a farmer living
in the cotton boll weevil territory,
tlie writer was prouilly told tli.it this
farmer hud destroyed all his eotton
stalks early in tlie fall, lie was eon
vim I'm iri.ii in! nail none inn rtgnt
thing hihI was resting easy and Intended
to rout until planting time.
That this farmer wan able to got. his
crop |)h kml in time to destroy his
stalks early wan excellent, but It
was only the beginning of the ramfriiln.
Ills neighbors hail not been
able to destroy the stalks early because
it hail not been possible to
gather the erop In time. On many
farms this ten Is negleetod or omitted
because its Importance Is not
Fight the Boll Weevil During Winter.
On all the farms where cotton
stalks are destroyed early, as well as
on all thi! farms where this Is not
done, winter will hold a great opportunity
before the farmers for a heavy
blow .against the boll weevil. Many
over wintering weevils can be found

Says "Tanlac Did Malta a Great Improvement
In My Condition"
"I just think the world cf Tanlac
is a general tonic and stomach remedy,
and am glad to recommend it,"
d< clurcd Miss I.illa Shelton, of
(>, Saco St., Greenville, in a statement..
"I took Tanlac for a generally
run down condition and chronic
appendicitis. I had been in bad health
about two years nnd I suffered a
great deal with indigestion. I was
as nervous as could be. 1 never ate
anything at all hardly. In fact, I
ate just like u bird?a little at a
time. I Buffered awfully with headaches,
"The Tanlac greatly improved my
rendition in a very short time^^t
made me sleep better than
slept in two years, for it quieted my
nerves. The Tanlac gave me a good
appetite, too. I began to sleep all
night long, nnd my whole system va?
built up and strengthened. The
medicine certainly <1 id make a great
improvement in my condition."
