Man- tKe best '* · / !96lic- A -\*ord to the wise'is saidio be sufficient; undoubtedly they have riot all heard. We hardly believe the above maxim', but believe the scriptural quptation,that a prophet is without ·honor in his own country. We ; dd hot claim'to be a prophet,nor the son of one; but if we were we know that it is .true.. ;, v: ·';'-·' ·' ; - ' / · ' ; -'··'· ; , ·-,- We refer to the frequent warning that we have given our neighbors and friends in regard to y the slick tree agent: We are sorry indeed to state that our own neighbors' have been duped again. By their actions' they have given me and our' en toe faculty at the A; and M. College the lie. Time and again we have told^our people that these fellows were frauds, nine out of ten of them; yet they never come along'but what they, pull some of them., The agent referred to has a new tale of course and a pretty one it is too; but any posted man, it seems to me, should know better than to believe it. We here give some^of his claims: Guarantee peach- trees, to be proof against the boer and to live 25 years; also to bloom late, missing the frost and · being sure cropper. Pears to be free from blight and if the first blooms are killed to blooin a second time and to live 40 years, guaranteed. Apples to live 40 ..ynars, free from disease and the ravages of insects and a special to bear six months in the year, having ripe apples and blooms at the same time. Made the claim to me that strawberries would, not bear unless"'two varieties were planted together. Claimed .to sell a grape, that needed no pruning; that two vines would cover an acre. Is it not strange that our people will believe such stories? We denounce the whole, except the ever bearing apple, to be false and we think that is too. I wish to say to my friends, one and 'all, that they are duped and if they bought under -the influence of such' stories that they may countermand their orders. The trees he is selling", is probably as good as any, but he-is making claims 'that are untrue, besides charging more than four times what you can order trees for. " . '·"-· We have been trying to learn the .farmers to let these sharpers alone ^but it seems that they wont learn,,so we must try next to teach the agents something. If you are in need of trees buy from some man you 'know or write your own order and get them for 10 centau -.:;· Cures Coughs .and Colds. ' Mrs. G.
