he left the bridge, a negro sprang
out of the brush and ordered him to
throw up his hands. Being slow In
complying with the command, th<-

entirely through Garrison's hand.
He then threw up his hands, and the

We are exchanging meal and hulls for cotton seed i !i
< i( 1
on the same basis we have been doing in the past: $
3,500 Pounds Hulls, 500 Pounds Meal if
FOR TON OF SEED
No better time to leave your seed for exchange than now, when you aro having your cotton
ginned. You can get your hulls or meal at such times as suits your convenience. The corn crop
was light In most localities and only a few farmers have sufficient grain to run them. Our advice is to
save your grain for late spring and summer feeding and feed some meal and hulls to your stock dur-
ing the winter and spring. Tho value of hulls and meal as a food for stock, hogs and poultry it too
well and generally known to need any discussion of their merits, except to stato it. is the cheapest
food on the market Further, it is a homo production and the Increase of its use will corresponding-
ly enhance the value of yourcotton seed from which it is made. Every farmer should keep a sup-
ply of meal and hulls on hand the entire year.
Try some on your milk cow and watch the results In milk and general condition of the animal.
Nothing better than cotton Beed meal to mix with the grain you are feeding your horses, muleB and
poultry. You will find it a splendid appetizer and laxative and that It will fatten poultry much
quicker than grain. Now is tho time to provide your feed while you have the seed.
