others criticise, as demagogic,
such a business course. But the
latter criticism is unjust. If The

the past two years to be exceed-

long, wet snell has brought about
a change which uur farmers par-

continuous rains made us all blue

together with a very fair cotton
yield, we are forced to own up
that we really may not know

The Farm and Ranch truly ob-

than all the mines and minerals
combined. We cannot eat, nor
clothe our bodies with the pro-

of the farm feed and clothe not
only our own people, but to a
large extent the people of other
countries, and also enrich specu-
lators of every grade.

The popularity and increase in
the sales of Hyomei are unique in
the annals of of medicine. Such
astonishing cures Lave been made
by the remarkable remedy that
the proprietors have authorized
Smith Bros. & Co. to sell every
packago of Hyomei under an ab-
solute guarantee that it will cure
catarrh. If it does not, the pur-
chaser can have his money re-
funded by Smith Bros. & Co.
Hyomei is no ordinary remedy.
It is the only method of treatment
that sends by direct inhalation to
the most remote part of the air
passage, a balsamic air that de-
stroys all catarrhl germs in the
bicathmg organs, enriches and
purifies the blood with additional
ozone, and makes permanent and
complete cures of catarrh.
The complete Hyomei outSt
costs but $l'Oo and cousists of an
haler that can be carried in the
vest pocket, a medicine dropper
and a bottle of Hyomei. The in-
haler lasts a lifetime, and if one
bottle does not cure, an extra bot-
tle of Hyomei can be obtained for
50 cents. It is the most economi-
cal of all remedies advertised for
the cure of catarrh, and is the
only one that follows nature in
hor method of treating diseases of
the respiratory organs.
Breathe through the inhaler for
a few minutes four times a day
and your catarrh is cured. That's

Right royally did Mrs. Edw n
Burton, known to the gills a<
Mi is Lizzie," entertain the Ses-
ame Club on Fiidav afternoon.
Without doubt did the meeting
prove the most inteiexting and
successful during the Club's his-
tory. There was present a crowd
of blight happy girls, and the
amount of careful preparation
expended and skill exercised by
the charming hostess and hor sis-
ter, Miss Burton, of Bells, were
certainly not misplaced if an en-
tire, though seemingly a very
short, afternoon full of pleasure,
may be considered a worthy end.
The review of "Gordon Keith"
was tborougly enjoyed by all, but
the best part came after tbe ad-
journment of the Club, for 'twas
then that our affable hostess took
us in charge. It was a crowd full
of enthusiasm and eagerness that
was not long to vent itself in
various whispers when a vase of
pecans was produced—a test of
our guessing powers.

Our genuine fun came when,
after dainty refreshinents were

all, each girl was given a letter of

tunes, the reading of which caused
great merriment, for the fates
wore equally kind to all.
The guests out of the Club
were: Misses Jenkins, Coleman,
Jesme Stiff, and Mrs. Anthony.
Wo all bade our hostess and
Mi49 Burton a regretful goodbye,
thanking them quite heartily for
their genuine hospitality.
