Mountain canaries sent by n friend of the familys from Dayton 0 as a Xmas present That fellow that is writin so much about farming and improved methods in agricultur had better quit scribling until Hickman gets a mill I hay come six miles with a load Acorn to have crushed for stock and the only thing I could find in the town was a little squeak inn meal mill working overtime to grind corn meal for niggers1 ugh talk to me about being up todate We felt sorry for the man but could not pour oil 01 his wounded feelings for fear o getting a large piece of his mind with all the Christmas iixins tacked on However Hickmai deserves the srricture as there are more farmers in the same predicament as this one and in the meantime Union City ant other points are profiting Iron herJack of enterprise

days previous to Xmas but who was excused bv knowing 12 ones with a wink and a nod which intimated that he had too much Xmas gossips heralded theHglad tidings ol great joy that he was having Hi nigh old time at home but as Hickman is a dry town where was he getting his bonded AvarehouseS year old Kellers trass The sequel proved thatt- his wife hada private non bonded warehouse establishment of her own run on the latest improved moonshine methods or purpose to keep him at home and he dared not make it known as some of the boys in the neigh borhood had had a life long desire to sample that particnlai V brand of unregistered goods JButaio the secret was too pro ifound to even be hinted to the intimate bosom companion as Revenue officers are inquisitive tend mothers and sweetheart often

of month advances over the minimum pric accruing to holders For instance iif the farm price of wheat is fixed at 90 cents minimum for August it will be 91 for September 92c for October etc t or 1 cent per month to pay interest shrinkage etc for those who sold A similar advance will be fixed for aU commodities In this way all members will nave tin same information at the same time and all will be in a position to act as our man in asking a price for his products It must be admitted that this if a groat J improvement over tho old system where each one guessed on prices for himself and marketed when he had to or when he got disgusted with holding If the reports of good or bad crops drought flood fly frost or other cause frequently false will influence farm era to hold or sell as under tho old system why will not reliable information and recommendations placed be fore them bo accepted and influence themOne Of the vital teatures of the plan will be the official paper or reporter which will go to every member and which when the membership Is large enough to justify will be issued weekly In this way the members will always keep right up to date in the workings of the society all over

uceutivo to uuuttial production an nduccment to hold crops and a desire to obtain fictitious values when the lau wonld fail Also whatever indi ridual company or trust attempted to better prices for the farmers by the usoj of money will fail as after they buy at in advanced price they must find some other individual or company to pay hem a still higher price The largestj rcasure of money on earth could not- permanently guarantee high prices for farmers products With our plan where price iis based ntirely on merit an uuusnnlly large vorldri crop whether from increased acreage inqreased yield per acre or no iumuhitions in the hands of producers or holders means lower prices in theI nturc This fear of lower prices to bo ixed by production and cousumptiOi wilt of itself be sutUcient incentive ta seep the crops moving into ccnsump iou The safety valve will be reliable information placed before them a fair uiuiiinm price and the intelligence and ommon sense of a fair portion of the moricau farmers Array on our side the intelligent farmers who are amenable to facts and reason and the results ire accomplished The balnce of the armors at any rate are the stuhborn guorant portion who are either driven or led and are not sufficient to effect he general results Wo know with a prolitable price ob ainnblo the temptation to hold will not be so great and wo predict crops will be marketed oloser luring the year tad the consumption will be greater of very staple product We have had some experience with human nature and we believe enough producers can and will demand the uinimnni lowest allowable price to uake the workings of the plan definite mud reliable As to controlling production this future will take care IIf tself Consumption has overtaken production in all

there to seize the custom house and collect the ratenue r until the debts are paid Some think that the ultimate object is to posse country as they claim that Yen ozuola can pay those debts only byfceding to them so much territory The claims they hold against Venezuela aro damages incurred by English and German citizens during civil wars in a- Behat country of which tho little ublic has had only 104 for money by private citizens to build railroads and the iJondn endorsed by Venezuela Government Tho littleII Republic owes France and Italy lIimi bar debts It would take theit Ur8t4 custom receipts for 50 or 100 yearn te pay these debts The occupancy of the country for such a period is very close ito absolute ownership Hence it wpuld be much easier to soil those countries so much land The United States concedes tho right 4 to these countries to compel Venezuela to pay her honest debts but deniti their right to possess the territory or establish a government there This country has been thoroughly and sacred ly committed to tho Monroe Doctrine since 1823 and this tho world knows This means that we will never permit ariy European Government to acdjaifo one foot of territory anywhere in tho Americas or to establish a Goveri ment Venezuela is preparing to make des P crate efforts to resist theee invaders But suppose she is overpowered as the twill be whut thenr Rather than
