innovation in Texas after all, a scru-

NEED COTTON PICKERS
BISHOP, Texas. Aug. 14 (UP).—
Several thousand cotton pickers will
be needed in the next ten days to be
gin gathering the fall cotton crop in
earnest, reports from farmers in this
section reveal. In the first week of
August, toil bnles of cotton were gin-
ned here, and the output is expected
to gain sieadily until past the middle
of this month.
Although cotton deteriorated some
from the early drouth, poison was
used advantageously this year to stop
the ravages of insects and farmers
expect a larger cotton yield than last

Each day brings fresh statements
from Austin citizens praising Argo-
tane. This wonderful laboratory pre-
paration has demonstrated, by its
lasting and Iteneficial results, that it
i¡f not u (latent or secret remedy con-
taining alcohol or other false stimu-
lating drugs. On the contrary* it is
a scientific preparation that has re-
ceived the endorsement of the medical
profession everywhere, and the won-
derful relief it is bringing to stomach
sufferers more than justifies this
endorsement. Mr. H. H. Heppart of
Rural Route 4, Austin, one of the
latest of local citizens to testify to
benefits received says:
"Argotane has relieved me of two
years of stomach trouble and indi-
gestion. Almost everything I ate
seemed to sour on my stomach, and
for hours after meals, I would suffer
from gas pains. A hard lump formed
in the pit of my stomach and I suffer-
ed terrible with sharp pains and
cramps. I was very bilious and had
dizzy deadaches frequently. All this
made me nervous and unable to sleep
well at night.
^ "Convinced by the many recom-
menations that there must be some
merit in Argotane, I started taking
it myself, and since then I have im-
proved wonderfully. I feel much bet-
ter in every way and can eat and do
almost anything without suffering
from indigestion pains and gas. I'm
not nervous now, and I sleep better
"I believe Argotane is the best
medicine a man can take for such
trouble- as those from which I suf-
