BIG FIRE LOSS AT
Severe Pains in Side
HAD had quite a bad
spell and sickness/”
writes Mrs. Emma
Patrick, of Caney, Ky.,
“and it was an effort for
me to go about my home.
I had a very severe pain
in my left side that almost
took my breath at times.
I lost my appetite. I grew
thin, pale and lifeless. I
fell off till I only weighed
about 115 pounds.
“Card ui was recom-
mended to me and by the
time I had taken one bot-
tle I saw it was what I
needed. I ate more and
rested better. I kept tak-
ing it and my skin and
flesh took on a more
healthy color. I felt
stronger and, as the nerv-
ousness left me, the pain
in my side was less severe.
After taking nine bottles,
I eat anything, go any-
where and feel fine. I
weigh 160 pounds and am
well. I feel that I owe i t
all to having used Cardui.”
Pain, in certain parts of
the body, is a sure indica-
tion of female compli-
cations. The treatment
needed is not the use of
narcotic drugs, but—

Greenville, Tex., June 15.—
One of the largest fire losses in
Greenville in years was sustain-
ed here early Sunday morning
when a blaze which originated in
the rear of the Perkins Brothers
Company store, spread quickly
to adjoining structures and de-
stroyed property and stocks
probably exceeding $200,000 in
value. The Perkins store, its
new fixtures and stocks are a
complete loss and the Colonial
Theater, adjoining the Perkins
building on the east, also was
The American Legion Hall,
the W. J. Brooks Cotton Com-
pany, Lindsey &
tects, Howse Photo Studio, and
Porter & Porter, lawyers, all of
whom occupied quarters in the
building above the Perkins store,
all sustained total losses.
The Commercial National
Bank and several law firms and
other concerns on the second
floor of the bank building were
damaged by smoke and water, as
was the store of F. W. Wool-
worth & Company.
It was estimated that the Per-
kins Brothers Company lost ap-
proximately $100,000 in stocks
and fixtures. The Colonial The-
atre management placed its loss
of fixtures, organ and other
j theater equipment at approxi-
Peel mately $20,000.

“Not with my consent,” I murmured,
when she spoke to me about it;
'"3 don’t ever want to see you going
round the house without it.”
And she smiled and called me “Silly,”
and she said when once I’d seen it
She was certain I would like it. Still
I thought she didn’t mean it;
But you know the ways of women—if
it’s their affair they’ll run it—
And it’s now too late to argue, for
she’s been to town and done it.
I was rather set against it. I’m old-

By a thousand foolish notions which
I’m clinging to, I show it.

Mrs. Lou Barefield, 701 West
Railroad St., Honey Grove, says:
“Dull, bearing-down pains in my
back made me miserable and
when I bent over a cutting pain
seized me and it was hard to
straighten. In the morning my
back was sore and weak. I was
nervous and tired, too, and didn’t
rest well at night. Also, my
kidneys were weak and acted too
often. Doan’s Pills, however,
from the Palace Drug Store, reg-
ulated my kidneys and drove
away the backache.”

C. F. Drake, of Rockdale, Tells of
High Yield in Louisiana
What is the largest yield
cotton ever made on an acre
Texas soil? v
With the “More Cotton on
Fewer Acres” well under way
and with almost 3,000 farmers
signed up, much interest per-
tains to. the productive capacity
of cotton land. Those who have
interesting experiences in rais-
ing a large quantity of cotton
and who have made what they
consider large yields can do their
fellow-farmers a service by mak-
ing public their results and
C. F. Drake, now secretary of
the Rockdale Chamber of Com-
merce in Milam county, in 1904
raised cotton in Avoyelles Par-
ish, Eastern Louisiana, and re-
lates his experience substantially
as follows: The farm he was
working had been producing
about one-third to one-half bale
to the acre for many years past.
The fertility of the ssoil wa
maintained by a generally-used
system of planting peas ancl
plowing them under. The ratio
Kilmer, arehi- thus maintained was as 1 to 3;
that is, each year about one-third
of the acreage in those Louisiana
farms was planted to corn and
peas and the pea vines and roots
plowed under in the autumn.
The whole parish was averaging
about one-third to one-half bale
to the acre.
This farmer suggested to some
neighbors that fertilizer would
do good and bring better yields.
He had seen the results of this
system in his native state, Geor-
gia. His suggestion was hooted
at, ridiculed, and resolutions
passed against it by the “Agri-
cultural Society.” Nevertheless
and notwithstanding the hoots,
the jeers and the resolutions the
Georgian prepared five acres of
ground, which he set aside as his
own individual crop. A negro
share-cropper cultivated the
usual twenty acres on each side
of the five-acre block.
Got Thirteen Bales.

treated and cultivated five acres

which was given to the negroes

Total weight of lint.....-........7,802
Divide 7,802 by 500, the aver-
age weight of the commercial
bale, and you will find that the
five acres produced fifteen aver-
age bales and three-fifths of a
bale over, and this was exclu-
sive of the 1,200 pounds of
scrappings cotton which was nev-
er ginned and of which no reck-
oning was made.
This, then, shows what cotton
will do if the land is put in prop-
er condition—tilth—before the
seed is put in the ground ; if it is
properly fertilized; if it is given

One of the two twenty-acre
share-croppers’ fields with just
the usual cultivation followed
for many generations and with
no fertilizer except what little
nitrogen the plant obtained from
the plowed-under peas of the
year before yielded about one-
third of a bale to the acre. The
other crop under a better farmer
than the first-mentioned crop,
made a shade under a half-bale
to the acre, or just short of ten
In spite of that remarkable
yield off the five acres, Mr.
Drake quit farming because the
boll weevil had already made its
appearance in Louisiana and
he knew what was coming from
reading about its effects in Tex-
as. Three years later the place
did not send half enough cotton
to gir^o pay the parish taxes.
Meirrode fifty miles to watch
that five-acre crop and to scoff
and jeer and ridicule. Some of
the same men the following year
came and paid as high as $10 a
bushel for some of the seed
They thought that it was the
peculiar and particular variety
of seed used which made such a
tremendous yield, but only one
quart of high-class, pure-bred
seed was planted in the whole
five acres, the other seed being

was met in only makeshift fash-

that this expedient of Texas will
be deemed insufficient.
