BUILD SUITABLE FARM WELL
Should Be Far Enough Away From
Sources of Pollution to Avoid All

Impurities for a long time, but ulti

can't be too careful.
A well with ground water approach

contamination through seepage from
nearby drains or closets than one
where a deep ground water compels
greater filtration. A sandy soil
makes the best and safest filter; a
clayey or limestone region Is most
dangerous, because of Assures and
cracks which may allow a free passage
of unflltered contaminated matter.
Under the best of circumstances, nc

Cost of Raising Wheat.
Including the item of rent, the cost
of raising wheat in the year 1905
was estimated by the department of
agriculture at CC cents a bushel; the
cost of raising corn was 38 cents a
bushel, and the cost of raising oats
was 31 cents a bushel. These figures
are probably a reasonable statement
of fact where the three grains are
successfully grown. The average
wheat fields were 59 acres; corn
Gelds. 30 acres, and average oat
fields. 25 acres. The wheat cost the
farmer to raise It $11.15 per acre;
the corn. 112.17 per acre, and the
oats. $10.91 per acre. On the selling
basis of 95 cents a bushel on farms,
the wheat showed a profit of $5 33
per acre; on the selling basis of 62
cents a bushel on farms, the com
showed a profit of $7.S2 per acre; on
the basis of 40 cents a bushel at the
farm, the oats showed a profit of
$4.17 per acre. These are the figures
of 1909. Today there Is considerable
decrease in price of grain and farmers
are not making any such profits.

that letters or packages bearing seals
on the face will not be carried
through the mails.
