more hem ;; mg a problem the I
has t I hr I III ! into .'ll :-i.U ;t . It
is the fai l. |,hat much of the hi ■ ;
iu our county i faro d I y i • ni
era. We lui e r>.>1 i- i I'm y. in
that not it few of the land nr. it i
are eonslan:ly clmtieing tl’c-ir t -m
nuts that relit their farm-, 11
is our growing ooiivietimi that
quite often tile mistake i made
hy (marling a to high rent, Tim
result is each one is pumping all
<tut of I lie land I hoy can, w il li
mit any regard its to the prrser
ration of I lie soil and the proper
care of it. It is certainly a very
poor recommendation not so
much to the renter as lo the own
or of (lie land lo see a farm that
should hi' worth $1o0 lo $200 pel
acre covered with sunflowers and
eucklebtirs, the certain sign id'
distress and neglect. The fact is
that the man on the place may
he a good fanner bill that the
place has run down hy pom
farming, that all kinds of weeds
are taking the farm and not got
teli out in one year. Here the
motto, “Live and let. live” is in
| lace. The owner of land
should see to .it lo get a good
farmer and retain him, as long a
possible. If a renter knows In
is reasonably sure of slaying lie
W’ill he interested in building up
Hie place, otherwise there is hut
one thought and that is to get
all out they can to pay the rent
with it best possible margin for
themselves. This is nil the
difference between farming and
farming. Some fanners will
make the owners more hy paying
one third than others one half
of the crop. To an experienced
eye it is quite evident that v<t\
much of Richardson County land
is much in need of rest. Unit is.
to he sown down to clover, him
grass or alfalfa. It is quite evi
dent that this problem is far
more difficult to solve on land
that is farmed by renters, than
when the owners are farming it
To us the best way out of it
to leave the renters on the farms
as olng as possible, the renter
then will find it to liis interest
to buihl lip soil as well as the
owner, and the result will he
beneficial to both. J. K \.

It is decidedly to llie credit ef Falls ('ity and Richardson Co
unty that two dailies are even ah] • to make pretense of existing
Larger cities have permitted their only daily to go to the Avail
for la ■ ■!< of support. Few counties of its size support as many
in-,\ spapers as Richardson, This ought to be construed to tin
credit of our pco]>le. However, The Tribune does not and never
bad advocated two dailies for Falls City. One is enough' \inl
one daily well supported and correspondingly avcII edited and
printed will be more largely t i tbe credit of tbe city than two
or three indifferently published. Tbe Tribune bas Avorlced and
still works for the consolidation of Falls City's dailies. A daily
paper comes so nearly being a public institution that it amounts
almost to a calamity when a daily is wholly manipulated to suit
the aa hims of an eccentric management. The Tribune confesses t.o
financial limitations, but if has a clean title to several ounces of
"rain fiber and a fragment at bast of what at one time Avas
called heart. In other words The Tribune can grow. It's alive

Just as the proper tools produce the best work, so does a respon
sive key action increase the effeiency of a stenographer. It saves
her strength. Therefore, she has a better grip on her work, is
more accurate, more rapid, gets a greater quantity of work done.
There is no “three-o’clock fatigue” where the Monarch is used,
and a few days’ trial will convince you of this fact.
