A PRACTICAL ROTATION. “I suppose you follow a system of rotation in your agricultural operations,” casually observed the highbrowed graduate of the modern agricultural college.

"Follow what kind of a system?" inquired honest, hard-handed Ezra.

“A scheme of rotation. That is, take that large field there; you put that to one purpose one year, another purpose the next year, and still differently the third year, and so on.”

“Oh, yes, I see what your meanin'. Well, sir, last year we used the proceeds of that field to give Elizabeth her musical education; this year the proceeds went to pay boot in a horse trade that I had the honor of engineerin', and next year I intend that field shall give me a trip down to the city and build a new concrete smoke-house. After that I'm countin' on lettin' the youngest hoy, Henry Absalom, farm the field on shares to kinder get his hands into the work.”—Exchange.

Pig-Sty or Cotton Field?

Since Biblical times, the hog has had the reputation of being a very uncleanly animal. How then can hog fat, from which lard is made, be clean and wholesome, and make healthful, digestible food ? It simply cannot, and does not.

Now let us consider the ingredients of COTTOLENE-just pure, refined cotton seed oil, and the choicest of beef suet. Do they not appeal to you as preferable to the fat of the swine ?

COTTOLENE is an absolutely pure product, and will make palatable, digestible food.

It is the best frying and shortening medium made today; wherever exhibited in competition with other cooking fats, it has always been granted high

COTTOLENA est award.
