CONCORD, AUGUS V 30, 1895.
It is predicted that before many
jvsars the sunflower will come into
general cultivation in this country.
As a plant it has no superior for
vigor, rapid growth and prolific
yield of seed, leaves and stalk, all
t which can be utilized. The seeds
are especially good as feed for fowls,
.and when mixed with grains they
?ire relished by all farm animals.
.Fifty bushels of seed to the acre is
& fair yield, and this will produce
gallons of oil worth $1 a gallon. In
China a valuable fiber, used in silk
weaving, is obtained from the stalks,
and they are of service as a fuel and
a source of potash. The orientals
mix their tobacco with cured sun
liower leaves, which are also rich in
honey and wax. The sunflower
grows riotously in the United States,
-and stands all extremes of weather
veil. Plainly, it is one of nature's
great gifts, but as yet unappreciated.

The Boston Herald says : "It is
foolish to oppose the bloomer girls
by 'boycotting' euh shapely damsels
as have adopted this cycling cos
tume, as it will only fix the dear
creatures in their determination to
wear 'em. Those young men who
have formed an anti-bloomer brigade,
the rule of which is to ride with no
girl thus accounted, shows they are
very green in their knowledge of
human nature, especially women na
ture, and they are advised to recant
as rapidly as possible, or they will
be left without a girl to their names.
As reformers they are failures,"
i Editor Marshall, of the Gastonia
liazette, has oeen down arounu
Louisburg, his home of fifteen years
ago. Instead of finding the usual
crops, he found tobacco the leading
crop. Then he goes into a recipe for
raising tobacco and then describes
the weed that is the result of the
executed recipe. A visitor in this
oflice, reading it, was so moved that
he asked us for a "chaw," The ar
ticle was so well written that we
tried it on six others the seven
tued up and otherwise appropriated
a whole plug of Cannon Ball to
bacco. Mr. Marshall's tobacco thesis

After Acute Bronchitis
CURED BY USING
A PREACHER'S EXPERIENCE.
"Three months ago, I took a vio
lent cold which resulted in an attack
of acute bronchitis. I put myself
under medical treatment, and at the
end of two months was no better.
I found it very difficult to preach,
and concluded to try Ayer's Cherry
Pectoral. The first bottle gave me
great relief ; the second, which I am
now taking, has relieved me almost
entirely of all unpleasant symptoms,
and I feel sure that one or two bot
tles more will effect a permanent
cure. To all ministers suffering from
throat troubles, I recommend Ayer's
Cherry Pectoral." E. M. Brawlky,
