seasonable rate of transportation on the farm By looking over the 7th and 8th pages of Uptodate Farming we find that scores of such meetings are being held in Minnesota Ohio Illinois Virginia New York Mich gan Oklahoma Nebraska North Carolina Arkansas and Missouri No doubt there are hundreds ot such meetings but all are not published in the papersNow ask all farmers who want one dollar per bushel for their wheat to join with us in holding their wheat off the market for the largr the visible supplythe heavier the club to knock down the price Specula tors are already trying to buy wheat at 75c a bushel and some has been sold at 80c The only way to advance the price Is to bold the wheat No matter whether you belong to the A S 01 E or not we ask your aid as you can helpus and we can help you by holding while you damage yourselves and us too by dumping your crops In December 1902 the A S of E was organized based on equity in all the business relations of life Its first great oiject was declared to be to obtain profitable prices for all the products of the farm garden and orchardIn 1903 wheat was selling below 70c a bushel Mr Ev riti believes the price too low as com pared with the cost of production and the general level of values He hastily gathered all available statis tics both of production and consumption which convinced him that for the crop of 1903 SI per bushel would be no more than an equitable price and that every bushel that sold below that price failed to bring the producer what was justly his May 25 1903 he issued his famous Dollar Wheat bulletin setting forth those facts and urging the farmers to held their grain for that price Members of the Society at once ac cepted the bulletin in good faith and acted upon the advice Many other farmers who had read the pa per did the same Bill the agricul tural press unilormly ridiculed the idea and discouraged such action many of them unscrupulously at tacking the personality of the advo cates of the doctrine The trade manipulators and gamblers in wheat prices fought us by all the means their accumulated wealth and reck lessness of truth enabled them to bring to bear but Uptodate Farming unflinchingly stood in the breach and defended the right of the farmers to price their products and urg ed the holding of the crops as the only means of accomplishing It Shipments began to slacken the visible was reduced shorts commenced to cover the price began to climb and the dollar was reached months before the crop of 1904 was ready for the harvest The history of the 1901 crop is a repltion of that of 1903 Long be fore the crop began to mature the countrywas flooded with reports of tremendous yields and the speculat I ors began to bid low prices for fu ture delivery of the grain Many sales were made below 80cII This paper and soclet lime We had means of informa I lion the speculators kaew not of and 1 were advised of the gigantic plans that were laid for a great rakeotf at Jj 41 f + ci the farmers expense July Jd was Issued the bulletin of the Society declaiming the equitable price in Chicago for the 1904 crop to be 120 a bushel and announced the total yield far below any estimate that up to that time had been made Since then the estimate of the Society hat been vindicated by the very hither authority and the price of wheat In spite of all the efforts and influence to pull it down has stood well up to the 120 mark and in the great milling centers it has gone beyond- It The visible supply of wheat In the United States on Sept 1 1903 was 13203000 bushels Sept 11904 11987000 bushels 19059000000 bushels There are 1990302 farms of 20 acres or more in the country J that produce whet If each of these two million farmers bad held live bushels off the market between July 1 and Sept 1 that he did mar ket there would have been no visi ble and no club to drive the price down and the farmers could have gotten any price they asked Or if some farmers would not do this there are others who have been sell ing their whole crop early who could have held it thus the results would have been accomplished by comparatively a few We do not know what the visible supply will be this year on Sept 1 but we do know that those farmers who have marketed any wheat heretofore J between July 1 and Sept 1 can market 5 or 10 bushels less or hold their tjfcole crop and there will be no visible Then by marketing I 110 or 112 per month the demand I will be supplied as it comes farmers will get their prices and they will have a steady income every month in the year We want every farmer to help in this way and we call upon each read er of the Courier and Uptodate 11 Farming to tell his neighbor of this planWill tie new crop sell for Sl per bushel from the start or will it sell at 80c as it Iis already doing in Union Oily Will the speculators I force the farmers to accept SOcts Jor less or will the farmers stand for SI J and get it If the farmers will de I tide that they will not take less they will get their price as sure as the ptople of America and the world continue to eat It means 120000 000 to the farmers of the U S on a six hundred million bushel crop and- o about 20000000 to the farmer of Canada if the farmers win over the speculators and gamblers But if the price cannot be forced to 1 for the first sum of the crop is this any excuse why all should not hold who can Just try to imagine what will occur if all try tmarket first The price would go down to 50 or 60tls Some must hold to prevent such a calamity and the more who hold the better will the price be maintained and the quicker the minlnum price will be realized There cannot be any good excuse for dumping the t crop Two years ago the price strrted arcund SOcts an 1 sold up to 120 Last year the prices July 3II 93 12 cts Aug 4th 80 l2cts Sept 4th 81 122tlFew could haveff by July 3 while those who sold on the basis of 81 12 cts to 86 l2cts could have held and been paid all the expense and shrinkage by selling in May Uut if more would have held the price would have been high er even early in the season Mr Everitt says Tnlrd Power 1 page 107 The plan is to recom mend a minimum price at which staple crops shall be sold in leading or base markets For instance grain prices will be based on Chicago cotton on New York or New Orleans etc Other markets and the farm prices will then be reg ulated by the base market The farm price will be the base market price less the transportation and cost of hauling For SaleThresher and saw mill machinery Good condition 11 tI Apply to I S L Anniversary Service at West Hick

Jehovah It is only a being that shall outlive sun and moon and stars and ages quadrillennial God ins givespresents of great value but when lie wants to give the richest possible gift to a household lie looks around all the worlds and all tbe universe and then gives a child The great gaveIHe gave over nineteen hundred years ago and He gave it on a Christmas night and it was of such value that Heaven adjourned for a recess and thesclouds to look at it Yea in all ages God has honored childhood He makes almost every picture a failure unless there be a child either playing on the floor or looking through the window or sitting on the lap gazing Into the tact of the mother What absurd little things people quarrel about What trivial matters cause ill feeling in families The mutton being roasted too little or the beef too much an opinion about the temperature of the house the style of curtain that ought to be bought for the front windows = the definition of a word Its pronunciation are things that might be argued pleasantly about but surely arc not topics wotth a quarrel when peace and goodwill are of so muh impor tance in the tome A little ill feel- Ing is like a teed tint may grow in to a large tree which will shadow the whole house Many men and J women must look back with regret 4 on the hasty word or the cold reproach which was the entering wedge whichsplit the household in two and yet how few make a point of uttering the soft word that turneth away wrath Your wise mother is not given to worrying over trifles She does notI expect perfection in a day And she has put from her as far as the east is from the west the ghastly possibility of sitting vanity up in the room of love So she does not begin with exhaustive attention to the multitude of etiquett knowing tbatII way lies the danger of making her boys prigs and her girl self cnn scious society misses before they arc in their teens She lays down as the laws ot her household the broad principles of respect for elders Iall for women kindliness for and she triButes the hslae u atmosphere with the finest concep tions of the deference and sympath- due from soul to soul Her children very early delight to place a chair for grandmother and to save lathe steps They learn to be proud ofr that restraint which enables them to keep self in the background and to deter to brother and sister It neveri enters their heads that servants arr less worthy of respect than other people They are unabashed in the pretence of wealth and power as they are tender toward suffering and poverty When she teaches them from time to time her code ofr manners and she is careful to per leer it according to her best judg mentshe teaches it for home use and it becomes fixed by becoming natural deeMAKSNO A HOME It seems a pity that the young woman who is about to establish home and has the money to spend for its garnishing can not be persuaded from laying it out all at ante She robs herself of so much future enjoyment The spick and span sets of furniture which are carelessly order ed from an upholsterer and carried home and stood around her parlors by his men will never afford her half the satisfaction she can get in a room which today she buys a chairI and next ws ceing there must be a table to accompany the chair she starts on a fresh shopping excursion and finds a table which Is exactly what she II looking for and in another month discovering the need of a bookcase or screen she has again the delight of the hunt and the gratification of obtaining the prettiest screen and bookcase in the citySuch a room Iis a growth a gather Ing together of household treasure- little I by little and piece by piece Each article bought only when th need arises or when something IsI happily found to just meet the need will have a family history whichI makes it an entertaining as well a I valuable possession Each couchI and footstool is an achievement i each rug and curtain represents tI triumph Such a haute built ti I graduallywith careful planning iinI each part with thought and loving consideration in all its details ac quires a meaning far deeper thanI could be purchased by tbe longest purse from the most fashionable cabinet maker Another Star Added Another star was added to the flagwhen President Roosevelt signed the bill admitting Oklahoma and Indian Territory as one State The measure also provides that Arizona and New Mexico may be admitted to statehood as the state of Arizona provided the people of the terriorlei vote in favor of admission on
