For example, a few weeks ago he spoke in Fargo, N. D., one of the live, aggressive towns in that section.

When corn advanced to $10 per barrel Mr Shultz refused to,sell a grain except to those who needed it for bread and then he would accept onlv $2 50 per barrel, or 50 cents per bushel. Already he has disposed of half his surplus at the figures quoted and absolutely refuses to sell to those who would feed hogs or cattle for speculative purposes. He could have sold the entire quantity for S1,000, but already has allowed many of his poor neighbors to cart away a bushel upon their promise to pay.
