Owing to the bad weather and the poor condition
of the roads we have decided to extend our sale until
Saturday, November 20th, thereby enabling those to
take advantage of our 20 discount, who were unable
to come to town during the rains.
We also wish to apologize to our customers for the
poor delivery service cf late and wish to say we have
the mules on the job and they with our tin Elizabeth
ought to be more than able to deliver the goods.

KEARNEY. MAN AT
Says Fanners Do Not Need to Get $3
a Bushel for Wheat $2.25
to $2.40 Enough.
Columbus. O., Nov. 10. The for
tieth annual convention of the Farm
ers' National congress opened here
today to continue through Friday.
"I believe the farmers of this great
country are justified in refusing to
sell below cost of production," said
O. G. Smith. Kearney, Neb., in his
annual address as president. "I am
not one of those who believe we must
have $3 for wheat. If farmers in the
wheat belt can procure $2.25 to $2.40
they will raise and sell in the mar
kets all the wheat necessary to feed
"One system of marketing that has
been suggested is the Ftoring of wheat
on the farms, and protecting the sam,e
by insurance, and also some arrange
ment to be made to allow the owner
to draw a part of its value as is done
on warehouse receipts, and not rush
their grain into the markets as has
been done in the past. This most
unfair deflation was the result of a
well organized conspiracy on the part
of the grain gamblers and some of the
captains of finance which was intend
ed for a general drive tol over levels,
and the farmers were again made the
i'We' must adopt some method
whereby country life can be more
satisfactory to our boys and girls."
"The federal farm loans were of
great benefit to th-e farmers. It is
to be deplored that all progress in
the operation of the banks was stop
ped by the suit brought by the Bank
ers' Mortgage association attacking
the constitutionality of the act. This
congress should go on record praying
for a favorable decision for the far
mers in this suit."
"I hope that we can go on record
here at this congress demanding that
our national congress be requited
to enact a law prohibiting the future
option trading in ail food products,
and more particularly that of wheat
and its products as now permitted
by the various boards of trade and
grain exchanges in the United

spoken by individuals acting on their j
own initiative. Legion men must :
take extraordinary care that neither
themselves nor any one else shall
take part in any conduct or make
any statements involving the good
name of the American Legion.
The American Legion has its ene- :
mies. rney cannot nnc iauu wim i
its declared purposes and principles
nor with the actions of its trovern-
ing bodies. They grasp then tor any- ;
thing upon which they can base a
charge against it. Enemies of the
Legion have in these matters seen
an opportunity to hit heiow the belt
tr.'l to foul and they have taken it.
American Legion members should
always be found supporting the duly
constituted officers in the mainten
ance of law and order; protecting
the constitutional guaranty of free
speech and a free press; and main
taining "a hundred per cent Ameri
canism based on fair play and a
square deal for all." By doing so
