place the value of all farm product nt

ISO . The farmer Is the magician, the
alchemist that makes aae of aatara to
enrich the world. The farmers corn
crops alone average a billion dollars
a year, and all the other, cereals an
other billion, with cotton, tobacco, hay
and flax worth another billion, and .the-
fruits, garden truck and animals a few
'billions more. Thus it can be seen that
the farmer, produces wealth , greater
'.than taken, from It by the miners for
its precious 'gems and minerals. There
is no other foundation for the wealth

there are prosperous times, and a fam

farmer, and his work.
One billion dollars is an amount be
yond the comprehension of the aver
age man. The life of an individual is
not sufficiently long to count It cent
by cent should he work ten hours a
day, from his tenth year until death.
This is the average value of the corn
crop alone that the farmers of the
United States produce yearly.
One would believe that if only a
small portion of the vast wealth,
which the farmers produce could be
only retained in the agricultural com
munities, there would be a class of
rich men greater than in any commer
cial community. - Yet statistics show
that for the amount of wealth yearly
produced, the farmers are retainers of
only a small portion of it The tend
ency is toward concentration of
wealth la great financial centers. It is
in these places, and by the control of
this great wealth, that trusts are built
up, and the machinery put In opera

the agricultural sections the great
wealth produced. Farmers can, Jf they

Quite oftea women through their anx

foolish expenditures. How oftea do
we find women in the country towns
and dlstricta engaged la buying soaps,
spices, teas aad coffees from some

ao economy in this method. Women

there is never anything of value given

goods inky appear all right, there is a
great chance of fraud that you little

how about the premiums? You will
find that they, too, are of the cheapest

CR1E8 OF THE SIREN.
Alluring Promise Made in Exaggerat
ed Advertisements to Gain Trade.
"Don't be robbed." "Save the profits
that your storekeeper makes." and
many like catch phrases is the princi
pal advertising stock of the concerns
who claim to sell at "wholesale"
prices direct to consumers. Their arguments-appeal
to women and men
who have little knowledge cf commer
cial methods. It is the appeal of self
ishness that wins for the concerns
who seek business among the resi
dents of farming districts rather than
any merit that the arguments present
ed may have.
There can be little doubt as to the
mail-order way of doing business be
ing a permanent fixture in the mercan
tile world. The fact cannot be dis
puted that in certain lines of goods
which are offered as "leaders" lower
prices are quoted than like goods are
generally sold at in local stores. But
the average price on nil lines cannot
be lower, character .and quality con
sidered, than the same goods could be
old at by the local merchant
The business of the big mall-order
concerns has heea gained by extensive
advertising and continuous aggressive
work. It has been the apathy of the
merchaata la the country towns that
baa allowed these concerns to take
trade from "under their very aosea.
Conditions that allow the steady drala
of money from the agricultural dls
tricta and small towns to the Mg cities
are to be deplored. There cannot he
doubt as to the evils of the mailorder
systems as a factor la the concentra
tion of wealth ia the great financial
centers, and the resultant building up
of trusts. For the past quarter of a
century the trust evil has been con
stantly developing jnd keeping pace
with It ia the mall-order system.
Much like the leprosy, its progress in
such that the evil has a firm foothold

cry of "Save the dealers' profits" in
synonymous with "Kill the industries

home town, even though there is a
promise of a small saving in cents and
dollars. Do your part to head osMhe

A Method That Should Cure People ef
the Habit of Patronizing Quaclc
It matters little how widespread
through the press is the information
aa to frauds being operated la the
country, there Ia always a field for the
people who live by petty graft Oae of
the latest plans to defraud has re
cently been worked In a number of
western states. Strangers, purporting
to he agents of s free hospital, would
approach a farmer, inquire as to his,
health, and promise him free treat
ment ahould he be ailing, clalmiag
that the state medical department
would furnish the medicine free. A
lengthy statement of hto complaint
would he written and his signature
secured. I few weeks Inter a note
duly elgned by the farmer would he
presented to him by bis home bank.
