Moran, in an article in the Atlanta Constitution, says: “As an illustration of the manner in which the farmers of the country have lost 1 1 eretotbre. it is only necessary to re peat a statement recently made by Mr. Hester, of New Orleans, that out of an annual cotton receipt of one million three hundred thousand bales in that city over thirty-seven thousand bales were made up out of samples which had been ruthlessly plucked from the bales by the men who handl ed them, which should have gone in to the parishes of Louisiana." Not the least tneri'. of American Cotton Company's Roundlap bale is that be sides its other economies it prevents this unjust tribute from being levied on the farmer. Pike County Court.

Quite recently in New York two deaths occured from poisoning by the use of powders sent to the victims by mail. In Leavenw’orth, Kans., the other day nearly every doctor in town was called to attend the children who had gathered up, eaten, and been made ill by samples of an article left at houses by canvassers for advertis ing purposes. Alum baking powders have always been favorite articles for this sampling business. Yet there is nothing more liable to lead to danger than the prac tise of using the various samples of baking powdei left at the door. They are presented by irresponsible parties in appearance are not'distinguishable from arsenic, and indeed, in Indiana some time since one package was found, after it had caused the death of the housewife, to have been mixed with that poison. It is safer to refuse all samples or medicine offered at the door. Pure cream of tartar baking powders sell upon their merits, and are never ped dled or sampled. COAL !
