Marvelous testimony haa recently

bearing to dissolve the Standard
According to the admission made
by Assistant Comptroller C. C. Fay,
of the trust, during the eight years,
from 1899 to 1906, the profits of the
company amounted to the colossal
sum of $490,315,934; and that . in
one year, 1899, the profits amounted
to $34,420,314. This sounds suffi
ciently overwhelming, but when Mr.
Fay had finished his admission, the
government's attorney, Mr. Kellogg,
stated that he was prepared to sho
that the trust's profits, for the year
specified, amounted to $80,000,000.
NORTH CAROLINA AHEAD.
Secretary Hester, of the New Or
leans Cotton Exchange, says in his
last report that the consumption of
cotton in the Southern States dur
ing the last year was greater than
ever before, and North Carolina
leads all the Southern States in the
consumption for manufacturing
purposes. Georgia is no longer
the Empire State of the South ex
cept in agriculture.
Mark Twain in his recent speech
at Jamestown said one particular
striking thing, says the Greensboro
Telegram, when he said that the men
who signed the Declaration of Inde
pendence were not Americans, but
only made it possible for those who
came after them to be Americans.
According to him, to be an Ameri
can is something worth while, and
so it is. Said he "There never was
an American such as you and I un
til after the Revolution, when it had
all been fought out and liberty se
cured after the adoption of the con
stitution and the recognition of the
independence of America by all

Yes, I've got a little brother,
Never asked to have him nuther,
But he's here.
They just went away and bought him
And last week the Doctor brought him;
Weren't that queer?
V hen I heard the newH from Molly,
Why, I thought at first 'twas jolly,
'Cause you see
I s'posed I could go and get him,
And then Mama, course would let him
Play with me.
But when I had once looked at him,
"Why", I says, "great snakes, is that him?
Just that mite?"
They said, "Yes" and "Ain't he cunnin?"
And I thought they must be funnin'
He's a sight.
He's so small, it's just amazin',
And you'd think that he was blazin',
He's so red.
And his nose is like a berry,
And he's bald as Uncle Jerry
On his head.
Why, he isn't worth a brick,
All he does is cry and kick;
fie can't slop.
Won't sit up, you can't arrange him,
I don't see why Pa don't change him.
At the shop.
Now we've gut to dress and feed him,
Aid we really didn't need him,
Mere'n a frog.

Something livery Person In Asheboro
Nearly three hundred years have
passed since the medicinal, curative
elements known to exist in the cod's
.iver were first discovered and recog
nized by physicians as a specific in
the treatment of pulmonary and
wasting diseases, and as a body
builder and strength creator; but
how to extract those medicinal ele
ments from the oil in which they
were enveloped, has beeu the study
of some of the most expeit chemists
in the world.
Now, the process discovered by
two eminent French chemists, Mor
gues and Gautier, should interest
every person in Asheboro. By an
extractive concentrating process they
discovered a way to separate the
touic, body building and curative
elements contained in fresh cods'
livers from their useless oil. By
this process Vinol is made.
Because Vinol contains no oil, but
embodies all the medicinal value of
cod liver oil, with tonic iron added,
it is fast superseding old-fashioned
cod liver oil and emulsions. As a
body builder and strength creator
for old people, weak women, delicate
children, after sickness, and for all
pulmonary troubles, nothing has
ever been known to excel Vinol.
We ask Asheboro people to try Vi
nol on OHr offer to return their
money if it does not give satisfaction.

Improving Corn and Cotton by Selection
While this is not the best time to
make the selection of seed corn, it
is nevertheless a better time thau
selecting from the crib in planting
time. The proper breeding of seed
corn for constant improvement must
be made in a special seed patch
every year, so that the surroundings
of the corn can be studied and auy
disturbing influences eradicated.
ELECT SEED CORN IN THE FIELD.
Select from the moat prolific
stalks. A stalk that has two or more
ears will seldom be as tall a stalk as
one that has but one big ear. Then
bear in mind that two medium-S'zed
ears on a stalk will give yon more
corn than one big ear that grows
up out of reach and is tne result of
always selecting the biggest ears for
planting. This method of selection
is the cause of a great deal of the
long-legged corn one sees ia the
bouth. Uocke 8 I rolihc corn, which
has been bred for years at the Col
lege Farm near Raleigh, and which
has been found the best yielder at
the otate J) arm in Edgecombe, is
about as good a variety as we can
get in the South. In selecting at
this season select the most proline
plants and pay attention to the hab
it of the ears. Better take an ear
that hangs down with a short thin
stem than one that looks upward on
a long and large stem. This last is
an abnormal style and should not
be selected. A hanging ear is bet
ter protected from the weather, too.
In the spring I hope to have some
thing to say in regard to corn breed
ing, but now you must do the best
you can, not having bred the corn
this season. Take both ears from
a good and, well proportioned stalk
that bears two or more. Keep the
upper ears separate from the lower
ones. This will Le easy to do, for
they will always be the prettiest
ears. Then in planting next year
plant, some of the lower ears by
themselves and note if the corn does
not grow shorter and stouter from
these than from the upper ears.
The time to begin the improve
ment of "one's corn or cotton is in
spring, and then study the crop all
through the season, detassel all in
ferior and barren stalks of corn, and
thin the long-legged cotton before
it has a chance to distribute its pol
len through the agency of the bees.
I hope to have very much more to
say on this subject before another
planting time. Corn and cotton are
both better for being Kept in a dry
place. W. F.Iassey in Progress
