Sulky Plow Economy
When you buy one of
our John Deere Stag Sulky
Plows, you buy no unnec
essary parts. The Stag is
all plow. Every one of its
few parts aid directly in
making it easier for you and
the horses to do better
Because of its simplicity
and great strength the Stag
stays serviceable longer
than any other plow of its
type and requires fewer
Freedom from unnecessary
parts, perfect balance and the
absence of drag on the furrow
bottom make the Stag the light
est running sulky plow. It does
more work in the same time with
less horse power,
y The Stag has extreme clearance
four Inches more than ordinary
between beam and share point
and six inches more than ordinary
between front wheel rim and
It Is easy to operate the Stag
a boy can do it. By means of
the landing lever, the oporator
can easily guide tho plow around
stones or other obstructions, or
hold the plow on side hills, main
taining a full width cut.
The Stag's advantages have
all been fully demonstrated. It
is a favorite in all great farming
sections because of its real econ
omy. We want you to investi
gate these advantages.

NEVER PUT IN CIRCULATION
Dean Swift's Notable Victory In Cam.
palgn Against Unpopular Coin De
signed fpr Ireland.
Wood's halfpence, which was to
have been placed for use In Ireland by
Great Britain about 200 years ngo, was
never circulated In I2rln, as a result
of the efforts of Jonathan Swift, nt
the time dean of St. Patrick's in Dub
lin, where ho was in "exile," and who
had for ten years previously been at
tacking tho attitude of tho British
Swift's fight against the circulation
of the coin came when Great Britain
decided to farm out the contract for
their manufacture to a certain WII
llnm Wood, on condition that he
should pay the government 1,000
pounds a year for 14 years. In his
famous Drapler letters Swift gradual
ly built up a picture of the ruin which
Wood's halfpence wore destined to
bring upon Ireland. The government
beenmo alarmed. A report to the
privy council made In July, 172-1, de
fended the patent to Wood, but recom
mended Hint tho amount to be coined
should bo reduced.
In the. end Lord Carteret was sent
to Ireland as lord lieutenant to en
deavor to settle tho matter on the
basis of this compromise. Lord Car
teret offered a reward of .'100 pounds
for tho discovery of tho author of the
Drapler letters, and ordered a prosecu
tion ngnlnst the printer upon his ar
rival. Swift boldly reproached him
with his tyranny, then looked calmly
on while the grand Jury threw out the
bill against tho printer In spite of all
the efforts of tho chief Justice to se
cure Its return. Tho next grand Jury
presented Wood's halfpence as a nui
sance which mnrked tho end of It all.

Memory In Writing.
Most of tho too few painters I
know talk easily enough, but when
one of them Is talking to another 1
notice how often he hesitates, not for
n word, but for a memory. Ills eye Is
waiting until it sees with the needed
degree of distinctness tho color or
form of the thing he is talking about.
So a writer will often stop, hesitate,
hang back, until memory has brought
his subject into tho field of vision,
where ho will hold this subject until
his remembering eye has seqn what ho
was looking for concretely, and tho
words ho was after como of them
selves. They will not bo tho words
that would have como If ho had not
made this effort to remember.
To tho good memory, tho memory
that can command things won, henrd,
felt or understood, comes tho phrase
that nobody ever thought of before, In
Its freih exactness. Philip Llttell.

By IRENE BLUE.
(ft. 1920. by MrClure Nvtpter Syndicate.')
During the early patt of an after
noon I was sitting on tho veranda of
a pretty little' cottage well situated In
n town of central New Hampshire.
Mrs. Dawson, my hostess, on com
ing out, remarked: "Here are George
nnd May mining;" and looking up I
noticed a young couple.
"What Is the special Interest?" f
risked. "Well, if it isn't Just like mo
to forget that you do not know them
nnd probably have not hoard their
story. In a town like this all news
Is meat nnd drink to us, and I wIlMell
you the story about George and May,
If you care to listen.
"Now," said she, "I mentioned thnt
George and May were coming, ns It Is
only lately that they have been seen
together. This was not always so,"
Rhe continued. "Since their early ilnya
they hnd lived side by side on farms
about three miles out from tho vil
lage, and ns a necessity for the com
panionship of playmates they were
more rather than less together.
"Rack from the house about a mile
or so there Is between the farms, equal
ly divided as to ownership, a piece of
woodland that was the playground of
George and May until the time enmo
when the village school and academy
were unable to teach them more.
"George, graduating first, was to
leave for college; nnd while his on
thuslnsm ran high In his preparation
for new scenes, fear clutched at tho,
heart of May that George, while he
was away, might learn to care more
for tho university city and its young
people, and forget the home folk.
"Two years of waiting and loneli
ness, waiting for George, had passed.
"One of May's favorite walks was
down through the woodland to tho
meadow where ran tho little brook
that, an old Indian basket weaver had
told her, was called by his people the
'Wishing' brook. lie told her the In
dian legend, and he said that anyono
who drank of the water and brenthed
n wish at the same time, woufd have
tho wish granted.
"And here on this afternoon, tired
from her exertions In the work of the
morning, taking n book, she sought for
tho last time, she said to herself, tho
Wishing brook and Its charm. Finally
reaching the bank, she stooped over
the stream, and cupping her hands,
brought the wnter to the level of her
Hps and unconsclo'usly said aloud:
'Dear brook, let me have my wish.
Send my love to Georgo, and let It
bring him homo fo me safe.'
"It was just as well for her peace
of mind that she had not seen two ftno
looklng young men who, when they
saw her approaching, stepped behind
trees where, watching her, they could
"She was-conscious only of a dell
clous sense of rest ; and ns she sat
there It seemed strange that on the
other side of the brook, which seemed
wider than usual, there were several
Indian tents that she hnd never no
ticed before. And the young people
and the children surely she know
them, but only In an Indefinite way. It
was strange, also, that none of them
apparently noticed the brook perhaps
tho children hnd been told to keep
nwnyfromlt. Rut, see! Here comes nn
Indlnn maiden. 'Certainly,' said May,
'I know her: perhaps she will ctfino
and talk with mo.' The Indian mnld
approached the brook ; dipping Into
the water with a cup made of birch
baric, she looked to tho heavens and
cried aloud: 'Oh, Great Spirit of the
Wish, send my love to my brave and
bring him snfely back to nie.'
"May was all ready to call out, when
the mnlden and the tents slowly faded
from view, and In their place wns the
house of nn enrly settler. 'Well, thnt
seems queer,' May thought, 'nnd Just
ns I wns going ro spenk to her. Now
I wonder who occupies thnt old-fash-ionel
little house, and where they
enmo from. I thought that I knew all
the people (Jint live near here. I am
sure thnt I do not know this girl who
Is coming now, nlthough her clothes
look like some thnt are in our attic
at home.' This was going through her
mind as nnother girl enmo toward her.
"Sho, too, enmo on, nnd us May
looked nl her she smiled n welcome.
The girl wns thinking deeply, so deep
ly thnt she never noticed May nnd her
smile. Dipping n powter mug Into tho
brook, she lifted It to her lips nnd
cried aloud: 'Maker of tho Unlvcrso,
send my love to my mnn nnd bring him
hero to mo,'
"May could Btand their Indlfferenco
no longer. Even this lust girl, who
now was accompanied nt tho brook
side by tho Indian mnld nnd her brnve,
together with the colonial mnld nnd
her lover, also clad In tho gnrb of nn
enrly settler, did not notlco her.
"Only this Inst girl, the one who
looked like hor, was alone, and sho
must be mndo to spenk and tell who
they nil wero and why sho nlono had
hor wish unanswered.
"As Mny culled out, sho henrd nn
unrestrained Inugh, nnd opening her
eyes sho lost sight of tho lovers, and
there In their place stood Georgo Inugh
lng nnd calling to her.
"Tho brook hnd resumed Its normal
size, nnd ns Mny stood up Georgo
lcnped across tho brook, nnd ns In nn--swor
to her wish, ho came near and
clnsped her In his arms."
George and May nro ugnln coming
towards tho house, but this timo from
tho opposite direction. Retwoen tholr
coming nnd tliolr going, if Indications
count for nnythng, theao two will bo
tegf'irr for life.
