that was not readywhen due Society is to blame for many wisted lives To excite envy is to make enemies Those who live for pleasure alone do no gooJ to themselves or o others10 There is no such thing as the money curse a good man oiln not have too much money Fift cents is enough for a straw hat it will last two seasons If I had my life to live again I would try just as hard to turn my money over

e It is a supniing fact that many men endure unwarranted expenditure for no other reason than to ex cite the envy of their neighbors How wicked is this A boy who knows bargains in stocks will become a man whe W9f knows bargains in stocks When you have made your fortune it is time enough to think about spending it f The tender care of a good wife is the finest thing in the world The longer a man lives the more mistakes he may be counted on to makeClubs are only a place for idle men and wasteful young men An active man builds success up on the foundation of failures a passive man does not Real charity is disbursed without the blare of trumpets- I think the vacation habit is the outgrowth of abnormal er distorted business methods I fall to see any thing legitimate in it The physician may

idea that economies to to be effected by centralization of controlwill give them the arbitrary values which have been placed upon them This theory will be exploded soon or later for there will always be competition When the crash cornea it will be national disaster I fear the centralization of big in dustries in the hands of five or six men will prove a big mistake When half a dozen men control

store wheat cheaper than the farmer himself can He is distant from destructive agencies he has no great bulk of it together he can examine it at frequent In tervals All he needs is a cheap house agood root and a tight bin Many farmers claim that they have sold their wheat this year because they lacked these things New is time to build them Do net let an other harvest catch you without facilities to house at least a part of your crop If not all of it t Last week I visited In Graves and Cilloway counties I talked with many farmrs about the tobacco growers association and all admitted that the price Is much better since the farmers have organized Some of these farmers were not members of the association but they said they had received the benefit of it Equity takes no rights from any one it oppresses no one but it restores to farmers rights they have tang been deniedthe simple right to estimate the value of their own property The A S of IL does net propose to make arbitrary or cxitrtfeoaij prices en anything j fairprices based upon actual supply demand and tUfly1No one is in the habit of buying a years supplies In advance and when ever farmers force on the rrarket a years supplies in a week or a month they m1 know they will glut the market and destroy their prices and profit You will willingly pay SO sis for a good dinner but ten minutes later you would not pay 50 cts for another Just like It because you do not need It and will not need another for six hours This Illustrates tile wheat market and why farmers get so little for their labor guess I shall have to attend a writing school My penmanship Is so bad that the printers have often made me say things I did not think of saying but last week they made me say the farmers have grown coin tn purse and crib when I aimed to say they have crown lean in purse and crib Now If the farmers will really grow coin in their purses we shall not complain In fact that IIs just what we are trying to do We raise large orops of corn wheat cotton tobacco potatoes eto but wn arc so busywith these that we have little time to grow coin Dtsrosnio or TUB CORN SURPLUS We have never worried much over crop surplusscs because in the face of the rapid increase in consumption and the inability of statisticians to show Increased average yields there is scarcely a possibility of a surplus with crops properly marketed as re quired by demand But this element of uncertainty if it ever was an ele ment of uncertainty is now entirely removed in the opinion of E W Wagner a member of the Chicago Board of Trade And he thinks the law putting denaturired alcohol on the manufacturing free list does it Declaring that there is now a situa ties which makes a pricebreaking corn surplus Impossible Mr Wagner says This is free grata alcohol for all purposes except food beverage or medicine Today we pay for this grain alcohol at the druggist 40cents a pint or 320 a gallon Relieved of the tax we shall be able to buy tit at 20 cents a gallon One bushel of com will product twenty quarts or five gallons of ptoo- I Still Going On J I We have an immense cumulation of Summer Goods left on hand after our big and successful Summer

goods at less than cost Natfeh Bros Dry GoodfCo Hickman Kentucky spirits This Is two and a half gallons of alcoholI at 20 cents a gallon from corn In the interior at SO cents a bushel At this price it is a cheaper household fuel than oil gas rraptha gasoline or cool Further It is not explosive and is safer After making the alcohol the grain slops are available as feed for both cattle and hogs From corn costing 40 cents at distilleries that will be situited throughout the corn belt it would cut the Standard Oil Company In two and close numerous mines This Industry could c nsume about the entire crop at 40 cents It would when made from 50 cent corn banish gas napthi and gaso line as steam makers and even made from 60 cent corn have a decided preference over gas and all of them for cooking purposes since it would find its way to a large consumption in every household in oily town and countryThete Iis no doubt that enough ot it can find its way into profitable con sumption from 60 cent

It is revolutionary tin grain prices It is the inauguration of the golden age of agriculture It adds value to every acre of land except coal and oil lands In the United States and it wll break up the most formidable and cruel trust in the whole country It would require a book to tell the good conditions this manufscture will establish and the evils it will suppress It will cut down railroad freight combinations and scatter concentrated industries that are only able to create monopoly by banding together and centralizing Its benefits will be left in a year or two in the other grain one

the uses of denaturized alcohol bu the farmer with this knowledge who dumps his corn and loses his profits is little to be pitied But that is not the worst of it While he is sacri facing his own
