CHIP TOBACCO is one of the best and largest plugs of
flue-cured goods ever offered the consumer at 10c. It is
manufactured by a strictly INDEPENDENT firm, a con
cern depending solely upon the good will and patronage of
the people at large; a patronage only desired upon the
strength of the superior quality of their tobaccos. That
it has earned this appreciation is amply proved by the
tremendous and rapidly increasing demand for CHIP. In
fact, wherever their tobaccos come into competion with
other makes, whether with the people or before judges of
the world's great expositions, they are invariably vnnners

It is quite certain that a large
majority of- our farmers are npt
getting as go. d results from their
farming operations as is possible
without increasing either labor or
expense. -, -
Take for instance our great
crop, corn. Do the 2,750,000 acres
planted in corn produce what thoy
should? Can we not increase the
yield and the net profit by better
methods?- Do we select the seed
iu the best way? Do "we plant
the best varieties? Are the right
kinds and amounts of fertilizers
used and applied in the best way?
Is our method of cultivation the
best and done at the least expense?
Is the crop harvested so as to se
cure the greatest feed value from
it and at the least expense?
As long as the average yield for
the State remains below fifteen
bushels per acre iWis certain that
the average man still has much to
learn about growing corn and-it is
probable that the best corn grow
er can also learn something and
still improve his methods.
The purpose of the farmers in
stitute is to discuss just such
questions relating to corn culture
and similar questions about all
other crops and farming operations.-
If the farmers of the coun
ty will come out and dissuss such
questions with a 'view of increas

I was an intense sufferer for some months with Indigestion, and could
get no relief from the ordinary remedies. During the month of January I
began the use of your Concentrated Water, and 'one bottle has entirely re

I have used and prescribed, waters from several Iron and Alum Springs,
but none of them begin to come up to your Concentrated Water in all that
goes to make the ideal alterative, strengthener, appetizer and restorative.
H, is at once a fine tonic and flesh-builder. Have advised several recently
to try it, and always with fine and quick results. In January I had a bottle
sent from one of your dealers to a lady, with the understanding that if it
did not at once improve her digestive apparatus, I would pay the $1.00 myself.
She not only willingly paid the bill, but used a . part of one-half dozen more
bottles, and is now completely cured of & long and annoying Stomach
Trouble. This seems to be the case with all who try it.
