Eastern and Western FarraiB.
Western men of New England origin
who retain sufficient attachment to tho
section whore they woro born to in
duce them to rovisit it occasionally,
never coaso to wonder how thoso they
loft behind can possibly bring thorn
solves to farm in a country which, ac
nrHim tn tho western idea, Is so llttlo
uH-irftud to nurlculture. When western llttlo doso of truth, and tell
fanners make theso occasional eastern
vUlts, thoy find thomsolves wholly mis
understood, and tho fertility and re
sources of tho western farming section
as completely unappreciated. Tho
oaatorn man's knowledge of the west is
chleily dorlvod from a kind of litera
ture that alms to claim tho reader's at
tention and make Itself read regardless
of whether It depicts western lifo truly
or not, and It usually represents tho
western farmer as rude, without aspir
ations of any wholesome kind, gloomy,
o.,iinn nnil fi chronia srumblor. Wo
need not say bow untrue such repre
sentations are, and yet this is about tho
idea that tho untravolcd eastern farmer
has of his fellow farmers In tho west.
Naturally tho eastern man has a very
poor opinion of agricultural conditions
which ho has boon taught toboliovo
droducos men of this typo. Ho lots the
fooling appear, perhaps, in the pres
ence, of his visitors and thoy retort n
best thoy can. Somotlmus thoy tull
him that ho has to sharpen tho noses of
his shoop so that thoy may pick grass
between tho stones, or that ho must
drill his corn into tho barren hillsides
witli a shotgun and provldo his cows
with ladders so that they can gravni on
tho thin herbnge that glows upon land
sot on odgo. Occasionally ho mingles
with theso humorous exaggerations a
thoy could not hopo to live at all if it
were not for tho farmer of tho west,
and their painfully-accumulated, ceut-by-cont
savings invested in tho stocks
and bonds of western railroads furnish
them an income, derived from tho
western farm, that keeps thoin alive.
There is a good deal of truth in this
idea. Tho earnings of western rail
roads, derived from carrying western
crops to market, do eko out many a
meagre income on eastern farms. The
time is coming, however, when this
will change, and the farmers of the
west will becomo the ownore of tbt
roads which strvo thorn. Already Mr.
A. 11. Stiokley, who is president of tho
Chicago (iroat Westorn (ouo of tho
loading western roads) has devised a
plan for gradually placing tho stock of
his road in tho hands of western farm
ers. It has long been a favorite Idi-a
with him, (or ho has advanced views
on railroad Mibjwis. Ho is known to
western farnuTd 11s the author of ono
of tho ablest books that has bcea writ
ten on tho farmer's side of the railroad
question, and holievcs that commun
ities should owu tho road by which
they are sorvod. The timo has corao
when westorn farmers aro beginning
to have accumulations of thoir own
that will seek investment in western
development. The splendid agricul
tural resources which they enjoy as
compared with the eastern farmers aro
slowly making them capitalists in a
small way, at first, but witli gradually
increasing power as such aud as this
tendency increases, eastern aud west
ern farming will bo as far apart as tho
poles in profitableness, with all tho ad
vantages as much in favor of the latter
as tho natural resources and soil fer
tility are now in its favor.
Tho farmer of tho west is learning,
too, from tho mistakes of his eastern
brother. Tho abandoned farm) in tho
east that have been pumped dry of all
fertility are an object lesson that has
como in time to teach tho necessity! for
tho conservation of the fertility with
which western farm lands aro blessed,
Tho lessons of thrift arc being taught,
too, and of more careful culture, and
little by little economic conditions aro
reinforcing and strengthening natural
advantages, debt is disappearing and
some accumulations me hemming the
rule As theso conditions increase in
their eiTuct, westorn farmiug will lenve
that of the oast so far behind that tho
sterile hills of Mew England will have
to find other use for themsolvcs and
leavo food production and its profit
wholly to the farmer of tho west.

for albumen in tho urine and deriving
no medical benefit, during which timo

sparagus kidney pills and took them as
directed. While taking them I ate and
