planned a riot of bloodshed among the
white residents of Houston two days
before the deadly outbreak which cost
the -lives of fifteen citizens, according
tc the report of the civilian board of
inquiry into the Houston riot.
The report criticises the superin superintendent

out to slay white people indiscrimi indiscriminately,

by the soldiers, the negroes having
been warned to stay off the streets

When the negro troops first came

requiring separation of the two races
in street cars, and negro soldiers on
guard duty at Camp Logan were in insulting

C W. Hunter make it the success that

This cotton proposition has got j
every one guessing. The ginners and -buyers
started the season by paying
18 cents for seed cotton, based on the
published quotations of 70 cents for
actual selling transactions at 66 cents
in the lint. These buyers meant well ;
enough when they agreed to pay 18
cents and it was a fair figure, but
when a buyer in the southern end of
the county was agreeably informed
that Ocala was navinc 20 rents and
the buyer in Ocala was informed that
the buyers in the south end of the
county were paying 20 cents, they lost
confidence, got panic-stricken and
without any reason or market support
began to bid wildly against each
other and rapidly ran the price from
18 up 'to 21 cents for seed cotton, j
Some of the buyers dropped out of
the race when cotton passed the 20- ;
cent mark; others kept on until thai
bottom dropped out of the market j
and then they all quit buying. The
chances are good when they start i
buying once more that cotton will
open around 15 or 16 cents.

The best method for cleansing the whole
intestinal tract and urging the liver into activity is
to take as much outdoor exercise as possible, drink
hot water before meals, and take a pleasant, laxative,
vegetable pill occasionally. Such a one is made up
of May-apple, leaves of aloe, root of jalap; made
into a sugar-coated pill that gives tone to the bowels.
This was first made nearly fifty years ago, and sold by
almost all druggists as Dr. Pierce's Pleasant Pellets.
Such simple means will prevent auto-intoxication.

are constantly working, separating the poisons from the blood. Uric acid backs up into the system, causing
rheumatism, neuralgia, dropsy and many other serious disturbances.
This can be avoided by stimulating the kidneys to increased action, and because of its tonic effect
on these organs I would advise any one to purchase Anuric (double or triple strength), which is to be had
nowadays at almost any drug store, and take it three times a day. Also drink hot. water before meals.

The national bureau of crop esti
mates on August 28th sent out a re
port on cabbage, in part as follows:
"The crop of cabbage as reported
from the various states in 1914 was
765;500 tons; in 1915, 958,100 tons;
in 1916, 246,600 tons; in 1917 the
estimate is 748,000 tons.'
The report also says that owing to
the high price of cabbage last fall
there was little put .up m kraut, and
kraut manufacturers are short again
The price of cabbage in April 1914
was $1.99" per 100 pounds; in 1915,
$1.50 per 100 pounds; the last crop
same time S7.61 per 100 pounds. The
report tells us the cabbage crop of
this year will be less than 1914 by
17,500 tons, and in 1915 by 210,000
The ten-year average on cabbage
was 82.9 per cent. This year s esti
mate is 89.9 per cent., but 7 per
cent larger than the ten-year average.
With a less tonnage now than in
1914-1915, with a higher price on the
necessities of life now than in 1914 1914-1915,
1915, 1914-1915, with more money to buy with
no wthan in 1914-1915, with no pros

to compete with ours, I .honestly be believe
lieve believe the prospects are good for good
prices for a medium 'crop coming in
