Prepare for Spring. I
We do not know whether
spring will be early or late this' '
year. Some farmers tell us that ,
inasmuch as we have had a severe - ,
vere winter , we arc "entitled" to
an early spring. Without tak
ing up the question of whether
we are really entitled to anything
or not it does not follow that be
cause the winter has bee'n se
vere , the spring will be any
earlier than usual. The severest
winter we ever knew , that of
1881 , was followed by a late
spring and a poor crop , the
ground being in bad physical
condition. We have known other
winters of more than ordinary
severity , when spring came
earlier than usual and many
farmers sowed spring wheat in
southern Iowa in the last week
in February. We have otten
known it to be sowu the farst and
second week in March , and then
again not till April. bpnng
does not send out signs of its
coming a mouth or two ahead.
All that we can do is to get
things ready and thus be able to
get the seed in tUe ground as
soon as the season permits.
There will be an unusual
Amount of spring work to do this
year. In miny sections of our
terntorv , trom one-fourth to one-
half of the corn is still in the
fields and must be husked , much
of it after the frost 'goes out of
the ground , when husking will
be a burden. There will be an
unusual amount ot manure to
haul out this spring. The sea
son has not been favorable for
winter spreading. Then there
will * > e the usual work of get
ting the tools tn order , getting
the hores inured to hard work
by proper ffecling- and by jwli
cious worluner , so as to toughen
their shoulders and fit them tor
the rush of work that alwavs
conies. The point we emphasize
is that we should begin now to
get ready for it.
A uroort big crop next year will
tend to allay the present discon
tent and disposition to criticise
the farmer for high prices. In
any event , prices for all farm
products will be high. Given a
favorable season , that is , a soil
in the proper physical condition
in the spring by the going out of
the Irost , the proper amount ot
sunshine aud rainlall , there
should be a bumper crop next
year > ome things , however ,
are against it. One is the condi
tion of the seed corn , which ren
ders a perfect stand almost im
possible. Another is the lack of
Irost so tar over a large portion

realize under what obligation
they are to the severe frosts of
winter from the 38th parallel
northward. Over much of our
territory there has been so far
( February 1) no heavy freezing
of the ground. Hence unless we
have some good hard freezing in
February ami March , the ground
will not be iu proper physical
condition without an additional
amount of labor.
One of the necessary prepara
tions of rpring is not to lay out
too much work. The great
trouble wiHi many farmers is
that they undertake to grow more
acres than they should , keeping
in view the uncertainty of the
weather and the high prices of
labor. The man who is fully
prepared for the spring work on
the lines above mentioned is like
ly to accomplish more the first
two or three weeks after -seeding
has commenced , than the man
who has his plow to scour for
lack of putting it away properly
in the fall , whose horses are soft
Tor lack of work during the win-
to , and who has a lot of work to
be done , which should have and
could have been done before
seeding time. Walleces Farmer.
Found Dead in Bed.
L. Cigler , an old man living
six miles west of Anselmo , was
found dead in bed last Saturday'
by his brother Wesley from east
He was 77 years old and a
batchelor. His brother Wesley
had just buried his wife and as
he had not seen his brother for
quite a number of years , he came
to make him a visit * Feb. 19. On
jrriving he found tne door lock

biat a neighboring house , Wes
ley went to inquire for him. At
the neighbor's he phoned and
was told that the last seen of
Louis was on Monday Feb. 14.
Returning to.the house Wesley
broke down the door and upon
entering found Louis dead on his
bud , dressed and evidently had
been quite feeble and suffering
.at . last.
The coroner was called but as
he could find no marks of violence
on his body there was no inquest.
Two bottles were found near
the "bed , one of Chamberlain's
remedies and the other a Pain
Louis' dog was locked in the
bouse with him.
The body was brought to Brok
en Bov and buried last Monday ,

Sonic Political Gleanings.
William Jennings Bryan ap
parently has not been able to get
his mi ml cleared of all of its
follicics even though it seems to
have seen a new light of the
In strictly political matters he
seems to be as much oil as he
was when he was making his
presidential campaign on the
" 16 to 1" theory. His advice tote
to the democrat members of con
gress and the democrat news
papers of the country to make
the congressional campaign on
fake acquasations rather than
facts will never give his party
the majority of the house in 1910
His statement that "the in
creased cost of manufactured
goods is large due to an increase
in tariff rates aud that an in
crease rather than a decrease in
the tariff rates is due to a be
trayal of the public by the repub
lican party. " Those who read
know this statement is not
founded on facts. There has
been no increased cost of manu
factured goods that is chargablc
to the new tariff.
Raw cotton is high yet cotton
is on the free list. Cotton goods
then cannot be higher because of
the new tariff , and there was no
increase in the duty on cotton
goods , exceptin the case of a few
high priced articles which the
masses do not buy.
On goods manufactured from
flax , heinp and jute the duty was
practically all reduced. In wool
and woollen goods there was no
change. There was a reduction
on boots and shoes and the duty
on hides- was taken off. There
were increases on silks , spirits ,
wines , beverages and other lux
uries. Of the 2024 items in the
Dingley law 1150 were left un
changed. The duty on 220 items
were increased and on 654 in was
The people were not betrayed.
The platform pledge to revise
the tariff was not only kept , but
revised very substantial down
ward as the public was lead to
expect by the the party leaders.
The decreases were more than
thirty times the increases , con
sidering the consumptive value
of products effected.
As a revenue producer the new
tariff has already vindicated the
wisdom of its'frauiers. The in
crease receipts exceed 140,000,000
over the old law for the cones-
pending period of time.
The business interests of the
country have not been disturbed
Everybody that wants work can
get it. Wages were never high
er. Farm products are high
enough for anybody. All kinds
of personal aud Area ! property is
soaring sky roads ,
The public has neither .been
betrayed nor impoverished by
the new tariff and Mr. Bryan nor
the democratic papers can make
believe other wise.
