High Grade ESPECIALLY ADAPTED FOR THE VARIOUS TEXAS SOILS South Carolina raises more cotton per acre than any other state—also uses more fertilizer. When buying fertilizers look at the analysis and compare the values on tags. They are put there for your protection by the state. The man who distributes fertilizer without preparing his soil in the proper manner, never works his crops, then hangs on the corner and says fertilizer is no good, does his country and himself a great injury. Lovelady, Texas, September 25, 1911. Davy Crockett brands of fertilizers are good enough for me. I find they do the work. I expect to use them another year. J. G. Lundy, H. W. Beeson. Donie, Texas, Sept. 30, 1911. This is to advise that I have used the Davy Crockett brands of fertilizer for the past two years. I have sold other brands also. I can recommend Davy Crockett brands as being well up with, if not ahead of, all others Ihave ever tried. You-s very truly. D. M. Worthy. Prepare the ground well and ...

GRAPHITE AND ITS USES. Mexico Supplies the Finest Brand o# This Transformed Coal. In the central part of the Mexi- can state of Sonora, twenty miles from the mining town of i,a Colo- rada, is one of the most desolate spots on earth. A few rude «harks give sign of human occupancy, and there are other evidences to show that mining operaiion* are going on. Here and then are huge heapH of some inien-elv tla«*k stuff. One soon dim-overs, however, that the black stuff is graphite—not only that, hut it is from this source that the world gets most of the material for its Iwsl pencils. The stuff, oddly enough, is obtain- ed from «'oal liedf which in placeB have turned into graphite. In fact, the same bed* are actually being mined in other spots for coal. Ge- ologists say that the metamorphosis was brought about by a plutonic agency—granite "dikes" pushing their way up from molten hot strata down below and changing the coal into graphite, which today is soft and friable enough to be dug out w...

VOLUME XXIII—NO. 16. , mJmm i SHAREHOLDERS IN THE FAIR ASSOCIATION. A List of Those Who Have Subscribed Stock—Some Shares Yet for Sale. At the reorganization of the Houston County Fair Association, following the fair last October, it was decided to incorporate the as- sociation into a stock company, sell shares in the company and fix the value of the shares at $25 each.

•'<5 '' . 11 • THINGS THAT NAY AND NAY NOT BE SOLD ON SUNDAY. The Sunday Closing Law as Interpreted by County Attorney B. F. Dent County Attorney B. F. Dent has supplied the Courier with a copy of the statute covering the sale of goods on Sunday. After setting out who may sell and keep open on Sunday, the statute provides for ex- emptions. A strict reading of the ' statute leads the average person to the belief that keepers of drug stores are exempt from the operations of the law, but County Attorney Dent informs the Courier that the higher courts have construed the law dif- ferently. For instance, Judge Hen- derson of the court of criminal ap- peals,^reported in Volume 40, holds that the keeper of a'drug store un- der the law could sell nothing on Sunday but drugs, for the reason Ü\at if he has for sale articles other than drugs his stock becomes gener- al and falls under the operation of the law.' Otherwise the keeper of a drugstore could lay in a stock of groceries or dry good...

JUPITER'S REO SPOT. Couldn't Walk! "I used to be troubled with a weakness peculiar to women," writes Mrs. Anna jones, of Kenny, 111. "For nearly a year, I could not walk, without holding my sides. I tried several different doctors, but I grew worse. Finally, our druggist advised Cardui for my complaint. I was so thin, my weight was 115. Now, I weigh 163, and I am never sick.

Hattiesburg, Miss., May 15.—A rich haul was made by two masked bandits who early this morning held up the Queen and Crescent New York limited train No. 2, near Oka- hola, a flag station eight miles south of Hattiesburg, and blew open the safe of the Southern Express car. The sum the robbers secured is vari- ously estimated at from $50,000 to $150,000. Express officials deny that the sum obtained aggregated anything like the latter figure. The bandits who are believed to be the pair which held up and robbed the Mobile and Ohio train near Cor- inth, Miss., in February, made their escape. At early dawn Sheriff Ben- nett of this county, started in pur- suit of the robbers with 20 deputies and two blood hounds. The safe in the express car was locked with a time signal lock when the train left New Orleans last night and there was a gua...
