NO FEED TO WINTER CATTLE.
Never So Many Cattle For Sale In The
Mountains As Xo-v.
Never, so far as we cn recollect,
have there been so many cattle for
sale in the mountain counties as
there is just now, and the price is
but little consideration almost any
old price takes them. Heavy fat
cows have sold recently within the
corporate limits of Boone for two
cents gross, when ordinarily the
same cattle would have brought
from 3 to 3 1 2 cents, and milk cat
tle are almost a dreg on the market.
There is. of course, a reason for the
drop in cattle not political either.
The scarcity of feed is responsible
for this great slump, and the people
are bouud to sell every hoof they
can spare. The lo6s of the fodder
croft, to many of our small farmers,
will mean a great deal in fact it

The John H. Sparks Show.
Will exhibit at Asheboro,
4. Afternoon and nieht
The excellent reputation left by '
the Sparks Shows on former visits
to this section would alone insure
liberal patronage this time, but the
lusty growth and vast improve- j
m en t s in the show since its last visit I
will make it more attractive thau j
ever. Sparks is a man of energy
and enterprise, wide experience aud ;
ample capital, and he has brought j
all this to bear in making bis show j
superior to all similar exhibitions.
He has a bt and new train of mon-,
ster railway cars built especially for
him, all new gorgeous cages, dens,
costly trappings, etc. He has en-;
gaged the best talent big salaries '
can procure. He has expeuded over
$40,000 in increased equipment.
E'ery effort has beeu made regard
h as of cost to make his show satis
fying to his pride and ideas. That
he has succeeded is amply proven
by the way the newspapers speak of
his exhibition wherever he has ap
peared. It is the universal verdict
that he has now the m"st splendid,
complete and high-class exhibition
of the kind in America.
Everyone should come to town .n
time to see the gorgeous ntreet pa
rade at noon, and thin follow the
rjrowd to the show grounds and wit
ness the big free exhibition.

that it is not uncom

depend upon it, thecar xe diffi
culty is kidney trouble, Uu. .lie first
step should be towards the treatment of
these important organs. This unpleasant
trouble is due to a diseased condition of
the kidneys and bladder and not to a
habit as most people suppose.
Women as well as men are m:ide miser,

and both need the same great remedy.
