"No Sir! I Use the Monarch" IF typewriters wera machines ruirby mechanical means in stead of human hands, you would find that, with a ire amount of purer, a Monarch could be run at a higher maintained speed than other typewriters. Run by "girl power," you find that the Monarch is run at a higher all-day average speed than other typewriters, and without a "tapering off," from fatigue toward the day's end. Both these truths are due to the fact that LIGrlrtT TOUCH. iightens the draft, uses rower more economically. Eliminates the waste of energy that typifies the heavy-touch machines. This in turn means increased production per machine and de creased cost of typewriter work per folio.

In the crowd that saw the exhibition were many of the black ami yellow slaves of the chieftain. All the spectators were amazed at the many manifestations of tho black art that Thurston offered, but no trick appealed so strongly to the assebled retinue and to the chief tain as that In which a white duck was made to appear with a black head and a black duck, after a minute's manipulation, with the head of the white duck. The trick had to be re peated, and then the chieftain en gaged in a long whispered conversa tion with the interpreter. "What is desired?" queried the obliging trick player. The Interpreter coughed apol ogetically and then responded: "Re spected sir, our honored sire wishes you to take two of his slaves and put a yellow head on a black man and the black head on the body of a yel low servitor. Our honored sire thinks It would he verv funny." "Tell his royal highness," Thurston replied, "that I could give a yellow man a black eye, but I would not like to at tempt to make his entire head black." i i s s it n iim Aiinrn innnrnipn - ...

Kvery manufacturer, every merchant, every luiHlneas man and every gmnl citizen Is tloeply in terenleU In maintaining the growth and development of our agricultural re source h. "Preserve Jealously the Soil." It Is most Important that our own country should realize the situation and take thought for Its own future. . . . With our magnificent areas and the relative sparseness of our population as compared with the more densely peopled countries of the old world, the time of economic trial should be a long way off for us. With greater wisdom than we have exer cised in tho past It may never come. Hut we mist preserve Jealously the right and the possibility of free access Jo the soil out of which grow not only all those things that make happy the heart of man and comfort his body but those virtues by which only a nation can endure and those Influences that strengthen the soul. This Is the safeguard not only of national wealth but of national character. Tho fertile fields of this country are Itg real gold mines from which it will gather a richer yield than the deposits of Alaska or South Africa or any other land can furnish. These are the tru national Inheritance. For the first time in the history of this country thousands of farmers from states like Iowa, Kansas, Mis souri, Michigan, Wisconsin and Min nesota are see! Ii"4 In v.v. In the Can adian northwest owing to the cheap lands offered there and the difficulty of securing such lands in the United States. Toward saving a supply for the future something la now being done. We are at least saving at the spigot though we have not quit wast lug at the bung. While we are spend ing great sums to transform worthless lands Into orchnrds and gardens by the work of the reclamation service, we still retnln as to other areas the land laws under which for so many years the grear heritage of the people has been passing so largely into un worthy hands. The Greatest Lesson of History. For the sake of our national future, for the sake of the coming millions who will bo helpless unless each can be furnished with a piece of tillable land as a defense against misfortune we should see that the speculative abunPR which these laws Lave fostered are brought to an end. It should not be possible ( obtain public land of any kind ai ywhere In the United States 1 enceli rth except after com plying with all the terms of the home' stead li.w. I cannot urge too strongly upon every man who wishes his coun try well and wl o desires all to be prosperous in order that he may pros per with theni, the importance and growing necessity of taking such care of our public domain as shall preserve I the remnant of it fur the use of gen erations yet unborn. - - . Such close u'nd careful cultivation as will yield the highest profit per acre j is cultivated in cnmpiiratlvely small can best be given to and when it farms. The greater the number of prosperous fanners the greater will be the prosperity of every business num. It takes more labor to earn the same profit from a tract too large to be UUc. thoroughly. Ten farmers ear h (!' I ,nt inn from 10 to ICO ai res nt the r,i (side, with the most npproveil met! ols, supplemented wl.rie necessary by Irrigation, can each earn a profit equal to that taken from two or three times the same area by slovenly till age. Ten farmers Instead of one in crease the aggregate volume of trade than five per cent, of the population of tho world. e are producing 43 pel cent, of the world's supply of wheat, corn and oats. We raise more than 70 per rent, of the world's cotton. All political economy that Is not mere empty theory rests upon the ratio ol population to land area, the ubund ance ami value of the products of the soil, and the proper balance and Inter relation of different Industries. W have been busy as a nntlon helping the so-called Industrial Interests of the country-in fact, everybody except the man on the farm. lut when we have as ninny peopln to the sqnrre ''e m Knrooe Ins now, we will know the !

This Interest must more and more take precedence of all others. The ni.-.n must he encouraged tn go to the farm. The man on the farm must he considered first In r'1 our policies, because ho is the key stone of the national arch. When he I ns irodiiccd the thnre of nr.f.sral wealth ti nt cor.orpomis to his best eTort he mint be able to find n pur (baser nt prices that will enable him to live in comfort and enjoy at least a moderate degree of prosperity. ThU has always been the llnnl test of every coentty and every civilization; and It will no more change than the seasons rre likely to reverse the order of their mc eshlon. A Farm School for Every Farming County. This country has from the beginning establshed and maintained a common school system on the sound principle flint education Is iwentlnl to n right discharge of the duties of citizenship. Another element must be Introduced Into the educational system. To direct the minds of the young to work upon the land as an honorable and desirablfl career and to prepare for them work when they return there by suitable Instruction Is to promote good citizen ship and national security. To raise the productivity of our soil 50 per cent, would be an Increase greater In valuo than the entire volume of our foreign trade. Theso result can be brought about only by a general un derstanding and practice of agriculture as modem science and experiment work explain It; by sch Instruction as we now give In our technical schools and Institute for the trades. Anyone who ha studied the growth and de cline of nations nnd would rend our own Industrial future must bo con vinced that Instruction In farm econo my nnd management should become an indispensable, part of the educational work of this country. Why So Many Warships? If I could have my way I should build a couple of warsl Ipsa year less. Perhaps one would do. I would take that $:..onO,no) or Jfi.OOO.onn a year nnd start at least 1,000 agricultural schoolB In the United States at Jj.CIOO a year each, In the shape of model farms. This model farm would be simply a tract of land conforming In sl.e, soil trceatmcnt, crop eelee'lon nnd rota tion, and methods of cultivation to modern agricultural methods. Its pur pose would be to furnish to nil Its neighborhood a working model for common Instruction. Cultivating, per haps from forty to sixty acres, it could exhibit on that area the advan tages of thorough tlllcre which the small farm makes pos:,ible; of seed specially chosen nnd tf -ited by experi ment at agricultural r-liege farms; of proper fertilization, r'ock raising, al ternation of crops and 'he whole scien tific and improved rystem of cultiva tion, seeding, harvesting, nnd market ing. The fnrmers of a county could see, must see, as they passed its bor ders how their dally labors might bring increased and Improved results.

With a trifle more SAFER RAILROAD TRAVEL All American Railroads Report Notable Advances In the Protection of Life. The best safety records made public by the big American railroads are now coming to light month by month. The Pennsylvania railroad set the example by announcing that not a single papsenger had been killed on its rails in the 12 months that ended last December. Now follow others, says the World's W'irk. .-,.s;J5r- .-.p.! The KrTe raiiroad, probably the most decried of all the big trunk lines, claims the unique record of having carried more than 12.',n00.000 passen gers in the last five years without killing a single person In a prevent able accident. The Lehigh Valley makes a similar report. Four western railroads-the I'.ur llngton, the Rock Island, the Mchiso'i. and the Northwestern -claim that in Hie past year they killed not a pas senger in any accident chargeblo to the railroad. This Is a matter of the greatest importance. And Ciere Is a new spirit In the rail road world. In Hi" pi'srcnfcr depart ments of our railroads a di ep im pression was made n ye:,r or so ano by the announcem lit from Kiii'land that all the railroads of that Island had been operated for 1'.' months with out killing a single passenger. The Pennsylvania took pride In Its record of last year In equaling the Kel'sh record; and there Is no doubt that the other railroads are engaged In a con test of this excellent sort.
