A t Rifle Range
From "Wednesday's Daily.
Last evening there were fifty sold
iers at the Rifle Range, and Frank
Bash us was scouring the country for
straw, for the place, for beds, but
had then not been able to locate
any. Today there are to be four
hundred additional troops to arrive,
making four hundred and fifty' in
These are here for drilling in
shooting, which it is expected they
have some to do in a short time.
The targets here are such that good
scores signfies that they are good
shots, when they score all.
The accomodations for the soldiers
at this time of year is not the best,
but they are trying to make the best
of it, for the soldiers, and with the
tents, and plenty- of straw, and
bedding the tents are not so uncom
fortable, though primarily this Rifle
Range is a summer institution.
DOES IT PAY TO FARM NOW.
From "Wednesday's Daily.
With the price of farm land con
stantly appreciating, the question of
ten arises does it pay to farm this
high priced land. These questions
will arise, and the only solution is
the demonstration, of the fact in ac
tual practice. Land selling at two
hundred and fifty dollars per acre,
must produce the stuff. Now just
outside of this city A. W. Smith has
five acres of Alfalfa, this he placed
in his sheds, and when the crops
were all gathered he had what was
to be marketed, baled and disposed
of it, keeping a loose condition
what he wished for feeding his
stock selling the balance. As near
as he could get at it, he kept the
hay off one acre, the remainder
brought him $400.00 or an average
of one hundred dollars per acre.
This land surely paid, for even at
two hundred and fifty dollars per
acre, it was paying forty per cent.
In the cheaper lands in the west,
many tell of the raising of enough
wheat to more than pay for the land
in one year. We often wonder about
the following year, does it pay as
well or is this bumper crop and
bumper prices necessary to make this
appearance phenominal prosperity.
KRAEGER FARM SOLD.
From Tuesday's Dally-
The Adam B. Kraeger farm south
west of Mynard Was sold to Mr
Nolte of South Dakota. This is a
fine farm of 118 acres, and sold for
? '.. The sale was made by
L. Tidd. The people of this
city will be glad to welcome Mr.
Nolte when he removes his family
to the afrm about March first.
SERGEANT ROY W. HOLLY NOW.
From Tuesday's Daily.
A letter from Roy Holly to his
father tells of his promotion from
the rank of the private, to the posi
tion of Band Sergeant, which is a

But the Final Answer
IT'S ALL RIGHT to exploit the speed possibil
ities of a car.
IT'S PERMISSIBLE to extol its wonderful
"pick-up" and acceleration.
IT'S PERFECTLY PROPER to prove by any
kind of stunt you choose that it will climb a
hill, though nobody doubted its ability in any
one of these directions.
DEMONSTRATIONS of power and of prowess;
feats of endurance; and spectacular perform
ances of a momentary nature are legitimate.
BUT AFTER ALL what do such freak?tests
prove as to the actual staying qualities of the
AND ABOVE ALL, what do they prove on the
very subject in which you are most interested
cost of upkeep over a long period of years?
WE COULD AN' IF WE would, write a vol
ume yes a library on the subject of perform
ance of this Rco Six in all phases of automo
WE COULD TELL YOU, not of one, but of
scores of Reo Sixes that have crossed the con
tinent, with all the feats of mountain climbing
and trail following as well as of speed and
mud plugging that trip entails.
BUT WE DON'T consider that important. To
a Reo it is about as difficult as is your daily
walk to the office!
WHAT WOULD IT PROVE? Nothing.
BUT WHEN OWNERS say that this Reo Six
costs less, year in and year out, for upkeep
repairs and replacements as well as gasoline
and oil and tires than any other 7 passenger
six of equal size and power with which they
.have had experience that proves something.
IT SHOULD INDICATE to you that a Six so
built must be capable of any feat or test that
eny sane owner would ever call upon his car
AND THAT IS THE FACT ask any Reo Six
YOUR ORDER should" be placed at once if you
would secure. Reo Six of present quality and
at present price.
THERE'S NO WAY of knowing how long we
will be able to secure materials to our own
specifications, nor can we guarantee the price,
save from day to day.
