The principal of construction in the Underwood was
found first in the Underwood, and every typewriter seeking
business in the same field with the Underwood which
has been put on the market since the advent of the Under
wood, has been an imitation of, and in general appearance
like, the Underwood.
The last "Blind" advocates of importance have now
fallen into line, and there is not to-day a single "blind
writing" typewriter actively on this market. Recall all
the arguments you have heard in past years by Underwood
opposition, and you will realize what an advance agent of
progress the Underwood has been; then bear in mind that
the Underwood was the first fully "visible," has had tim
to develope and improve, and is to-day the most perfect

Tribulations of ths Famous French
Epiouro and Jurist.
Brillat-Savarlu. the author of 'The
Physiology of Tnste." was the abso

liver. The French revolution confis
cated his property and removed uiui
from bis office as civil judge, lie tied
to Switzerland and then to the United
States, where he played a fiddle in a
New York theater to gain a living.
His proierty was afterward returned
to him, and he was made a counselor
of the supreme court, an office he
clung to successfully through changes
of empire and kingdom. His "Physi
ology of Taste" shared the fate of
many celebrated books. It was re
fused by several publishers and even
tually was published at the author's
expense, but without his name at

ture of the work incompatible with his
It was Brlllat-Savarln who declared
that "the discovery of a new food does
more for the happiness of the human
race than the discovery of a star."

AH over the United States there has been less
than 80 per cent of the normal precipation at the same
time the temperature has been far above normal. Not
only does this apply to the United States, but is world
wide. In continental Europe the wells are failing; the
streams are dry; stock is suffering. In some places in
the United States, it is difficult to obtain soflieient water
for stock, while in Canada the suffering is intense.
No very large section of the world is favored with
excess of moisture, or with sub-normal temerature.
Western Kansas cannot claim special immunity,
but can and does claim that she has an inexhaustible
supply of water; her wells never fail and one pump can
raise enough water to irrigate 40 acres of land every
24 hours hence we are practically not dependent on
Our rainfall is usually all sufficient to produce an
abundant harvest but at times like this we have an
emergency proposition, which, gives us the assurance
that we can water our crops regardless of adverse
A pump recently installed near Garden City, Kan
sas, is pumping 4100 gallons per minute, at a cost of
less than 25 cents per hour do you know what this
means? It means that you can cover an acre of ground
with 7.6 inches of water every hour. How would you
like to be able to put two or three, or four inches of
life giving water on some of your dying crops, at a cost
of 10 or 15 cents per acre?
Here in Western Kansas IF the rain fails, we
Here our wells never go dry; our stock never suf

LAND: is the one and only commodity, which,
occasionally flunctuates but always increases in value.
During the time of depressed prices is the time to buy.
Now is the time to buy, invest in land. The price
of all lands must go up and the price of cheap land will
double and trible in the very near future.
Banks may break and stocks may become worth
less, but a tract of land is yours and your assignes
The man who invests in land, can rest assured that
he is the absolute owner of the same, that no one else
has control of his investment, and while he reclines at
ease, his wealth is increasing.
Nearly all of the financial successes of the age,
both great and small have been based on real estate,
because real estate values always increase with the in
flux of population.
We now have the land at exceptionally low prices.
Within the next year, we will have a wonderful in
crease of population to Finney County, Kansas. There
fore now is the time to invest.
