wheat the dealer offered tne 60 cents I said no sir andI told him my price was 100 I held is until some land notes came due when I sold it at 85 cents25 cents advance This year 1904 when I thieshed they offered me 75 cents but I said 5100 at the farm and you pay for hauling They laughed at me and said Dpnt you know you wiU never getI your price I told them to wait In a short time the dealer came to me and said I will give you 100 delivered Isaid my price is 5100 on the farm In a few days he offered SI 03 delivered and I sold him 400 bushels If I had not been a reader of uptodate farming I would have sold at the dealers price each time- R D Gibson D P Metidan TuasI Again Mr Gibson says 1 I got SOcts per bushel for my corn when specu haters were offering only 35cts here All of my neighbors that belonged to the A S of E who did likewise were benefited the same way and some of them mote than myselfI Uplordato and the Third Power are rye openers and safe guides to aI people who need guidance Hut some one says we know nothing of Mr Gibson and Texas is a good distance away Perhaps the whole matter is a hoax lie gives his post office write to him and see Jut you do not have to go Texas to find people who have been benefitted by A S of E Mr W B McGeliee on Route 4 Hickman Ky 1311hI have beenI bcnefitlcd by reading your paper Before Ijoined the A S of E I had i II determined

for 105 per bushel and Istill have 600 bushels and I want you to tell me when to sell it If I had not read uptodate farming my entire cropwould have been sold at 88 or 89cti Mr McGehee afterward sold his 600 bushels at Sl1J per bushel He lives near Rush Creek church and is well known In Fulton County asked my neighbor to join the A S of E Ilie said Oh prices arc pretty good now and have been tor

Supplies There has been much adverse criticism of Secretary Tafti order in reference to the purchase of supIi plies for the Panama Canal in the open market In the beginning of the enterprlie the matter was offi dally urged upon Congress anti it was specifically asked to give direc tions and was told that if it did not do so the policy which is now batng pursued would be adopted The only answer Congress made to that t application was silence and silence in such a case could only be inter tt peted as implying assent to the c course announced to be pursued 1 In view of the law and practice of I the government it is the duty of tthe administration to buy supplies where other conditions being equal it can It get them cheapat To rule arbiI I trarialy that all supplies must be purchased in America means an in creased cost which Secretary Taft I indicates In his letter to the PreslI1 dent submitted to Congress One was the cane of two sea goin If dredges which were bid for by hot British aid American firms The former offered to build them and de liver them one at Colon and one at I Panama for S18850 less than the American firm wanted for building them alone leaving our government II- to convey them at their own risk and expense from Chesapeake BayI to the isthmus The other case was that of twenty thousand Cartels of cement which the Canal Commission purchased In a foreign market fo 7400 less than it would have cost here It is seriously questioned whether sound policy does not die tate tne making of purchase abroad whenever so doing will result In so great a saving to the American tax payer That however Is for Conh gress to determine bearing in mindI that it will have to find and approh prlate the money to toot the billsC Hut there Is no question that unless and until Congress does direct otherwise the administration cannot do aught else than keep on with Its presI ent policy at A HAPPY MOTHER Will ice that her baby is properlyB cared torto do this
