Farmers To Eliminate Specu-
Farming is not the snap that
inostcity raised people think it is
but all things considered",-it is a-
bout the best business open for a
wide awake energetic young imn
at the present time. Eachi'
year farmers^ are becoming bet-
ter skilled in their own business
and the majority are getting
muchjnore out of it than they
used to. Scientific and sensible
methods are being adopted,
especially by the newer genera-
tion, who have come under the
influence of the agricultural col-
lege. There is still much room
for progress, bat the majority
are headed the right way. For
the past two or three years* the
farmer has rather had the better
of it, so far as prosperity is con-
cerned. The farmer has a great
advantage over the city man in
many ways. He may not make
as much money as some of the
big business men, butheis-freer
from worry which is worth much.
The farmer is not only able to
pass unscathed through panics
which dig great wrinkles in the
face of. the merchant or the man-
ufacturer, as comparatively re-
cent events testify. He can also
do things with public, approvaU
which a city man can't do except
under penafty of,being denounced
far and wide and of being writ-
ten up in the Sunday newspapers
as a menace to society.
Take the plan of the farmers
to construct a chain of ware-
houses in the 'grain . producing
territory, which Is now being
promoted. What is ther object of
It is to eliminate the speculator
and middleman from the grain
market, thus securing to the
farmers the profits of both. It
is al£o to enable the farmers to
hold their wheat back for higher
prices before ~ disposing of it to
directly buying interests.
-To put it a„ little differently,
the idea is for the farmers to be
of letting'the speculators hold it
from the market until the price,
if low, is pushed up, the farmers
will do that piece of business
•themselves. Instead of letting
4he speculator make whatever
profit the operation brings, the
farmers will deposit the sum in
bank themselves. v .. --
A Short Story On Dogs
I presume there is not an oth-
er man on earth who likes peo-
mak# in the world, they were
members of the New Britain;
cricket team. Corbin was the
star bowler and Gilbert was a
terror at the bat: They were
big factors in making New Brit-
ain win a great majority of its
games. One day Gilbert,in/a fit
of rage, shot,and killed, Henry
Durwell. Corbin stood by his
friend through the trial, but the
evidence was conclusive and Gil-
bert was regarded as lucky to
escape the gallows.
- * *You are guilty; " said^orbin, .
"and you deserve your punish-
ment, but I shall still be your
friend and twice every year I'll
come to see you."
For forty-five years Mr. Corbin
has kept his word.
Doing Your part

your, home a place of peace and
pleasure and contentment for its

E. M. White & Son
I never could- like or take any
interest in anything I could not
understand, hence my partiality
to folks and pups. I understana
them as well as I understand
daylight from darkness.
Dogs are much easier under-
stood than people, unless the
person is very young and has
not had time to learn how to lie
and deceive. -' Dogs have a great
deal more loveble and commend-
able traits of charm than man,
because they preserve them in
all their original purity, while a
man soon begins to suppress or
conceal his better nature as soon
as he discovers that he person-
ally can benefit thereby. If a
dog likes you, you will have no
difficulty in knowing the fact.
His every movement and action
tells you that he is your friend.
He will stay out with you in rain
and sleet, and guard your bed
while you sleep. He demands
no princely salary for being your
friend, but without a murmur or
complaint he receives the scraps
left from your full meal with
grattitude, and if he loves you,
will even lick the hand that
strikes and abuses him.
If you are rich he will lie on
your best sofa and sleep on your
bed if you will permit him to do
so, or if it pleases "you best, he
will crawl under the house, dig
a nice hole in the dirt and sleep
the sleep of the contented All
he wants is your confidence and
your love. Then when you go
broke and the world turns its
frigid shoulder to you, the dog
will leave a warm bed and follow
you through the very depths of
poverty and starvation, with not
ev<in a whine of discontent.
People don't always do as much
I for their friends. - All of . them
are good and true as long as you
are on top of the water, but it
grieves me to say that there are
some few who will give you the
marble gaze when your money is
gone and you are really in need
of a friend, but your dog, never.
