The crop is used for food lor both

liny it now. That Is the slogan of a
national campaign, unique in diameter
ami far reaching in results us it alTects
the general prosperity of tlio country,
which has been inaugurated for the
purpose of inducing purchases of goods
now which must of necessity bo bought
in the spring months.
The campaign is general in its re
quests and is directed to every one
Especial attention, howevor, is being
directed to tho purchase of heavy
merchandise, such as farm machinery,
building materials and other things
which are usually bought during tho
liy buying now that which mast be
bought latter, general business activity
will bo materially increased aud erery
one will feel the beneficial effects.
Jobbing houses will be working under
full force and factories will be work
ing full time with full help. In this
way many men who aio now out of
work will be given employment and
many families, who are In need of the
actual necessities of life will be provid
Tho campaign does not suggest in
discriminate or unnecessary buying.
Hut It does suggest economic buying
aud insists upon buying now things
that must bo bought later.
Tho campaign should meet with
especial favor from tho farmers of tho
United States. Government statistics
just issuod show that the farmers are
more prosperous today than they have
ever been the 1014 output from farms
exoeded that of last year by more than
eighty-threo million dollars and th.it
while tho farmers aro showing a good
ly margin of prollt, tho merchant and
manufacturer aro having a hard time
making ends moot. They will buy
many things in tho spring but if they
will buy them now, factories will bo
running full blast and they can do a
servico to humanity.
With a general buying of necessary
merchandise, business conditions
would materially Improve, unsettled
conditions would be lessonod and con
fidence would bo restored much sooner
than under present conditions.

Tho, soliloquizer, however, did not
know that his usually hustling, hope
ful young friend was under a pretty
sovoro strain at tho present time.
Ilopo, ambition, love, seemed all about
to wither away because of money and
Ha urgent need.
Many years previous Hula father
had loaned D.ivld Kastman a largo
bum of money. Things went wrong
with Kubtmau. Tlun they wont bet
ter. Ho wan honest and ho turned
over to his creditor his littlu mort
gaged farm at Gniyton, with the pro
viso that lie was to bo Its tenant at
a fixed rental whllo ho lived. Finally
Kastmnn wrote to Hal's father that
ho would bo ablo to square tho, wholo
debt, soino ten thousand dollars, with
in n year. ,
Hal's father died before tho year
was up. Hal wrote to Mr. Eastman,
asking what tho prospects as to tho
promised money might be. Ho re
ceived u speedy reply, stating that If
ho would como down to Grayton tho
old account would ho settled In cold
Hal arrived at Grayton to find that
Mr. Kastmau had died tho day before.
A search was mado for a will. Nono
wns found. For money. There was
nono at bank nor In tho house. Only
tho old farmhouse was in evidence as
It was a great disappointment to
Hal, all this, llo had contldcntly
counted on tho money to start in
business. Ho had already invested in
that direction. Tills became a dead
loss. Ho had to go back to a poor
paying position In tlio adjoining town.
Then, too, a situation evolved at tho
littlu farm that distressed him. Dur
ing tho last year of his life Mr. EaBt
man had given a homo to an orphan
girl and her littlu sister Nellie and
Lois Itlynn. The young lady find been
houselce'irr and nurse for her old
almoner. He had given iW u cow
some chickens, and the old farm liorso
and carryall. Independently Nclllo
had worked up quite a clientele for
milk and eggs In tho neighboring vil
lage. Usually, Saturdays ho ran down to
Upon tho day that ho felt that
money would euro a great proportion
of his ills, Hal wis realising how
slow was tho proress in his present
environment towards attaining a com
petence. I nknowingly, tho vnguo
thought of being ablu to ask Nellie to
hecomo his life partner had a certain
placo In his aspirations.
Ho was greeted tit the farm by Nel

mood. lie stayed to supprr. As usual
ho gavo to llttlo big-eyed, wistful Lois,
tho few pennies ho never begrudged
"You mustn't do that, Mr. Sturges,"
chlded Nellie Gently, as tho llttlo ono
"Why not?" challenged Hal, pleas
antly. "because sho seems to lose them
all. It is strango, but she never asks
to go to tho village and buy sweet
meats, like ordinary children. Tho
pennies always disappear mysteri
ously and sho never tells where they
"Perhaps she has a secret hoarding
place?" suggested Hal, with a smile.
He left Nellie and strolled through
tho orchard In quest of tho truant
child. Finally he caught sight of her
blue frock over near a fence corner.
"Why, what are you up to, llttlo
one?" propounded Hal.
Lois looked up with a llttlo an

a young lady" sho chlded, childishly.

"Planting pennies!" ejaculated tho
"Yes, sir. All you give mo In
here," and sho patted tho ground.
"When they grows, I'so going to pick
wholo baskusfuls off'n tho bushes."
"Whatever put that in your head,
child?' demanded Hal.
"Gran'pa;" so sho had been taught
to designate Mr. Eastman.
"How is that?" pressed Hal.
"Saw him do It, watched him," was
tho blunt explanation. "Dags and
they chinked. And Jow'lry, and pa
pers. Ho didn't know I was watching
him. Never growed, though. Guess

"Whero was tho spot, Lois?" pressed
Sho showed him. A bright light ot
intelligence had flooded Hal Sturges
mind. Ten minutes later ho was vlow

where Lois Insisted she had seen
"Gran'pa" "planting mouoy."
"I've been doing somo digging," n
nounced Hal to Nelllo somewhat later,
and ho told of his discovery. "A small
fortune," ho explained. "Dear llttlo
