GOOD SEED IS RESPONSIBLE
Secretary Simpson Has a Plan for
Increasing the Rnral Population
of State Awards In Cora
(From a Staff Correspondent.)
DES MOINES, Dee. 10 (Special.) During
the present year Iowa planted 438.390 acres
less In corn than In 1907 and yet the total
yield of corn this year exceeds that of last
by 54,974,690 bushels. This Is due largely to
the elucatlon on selection of good seed
corn and proper culture. This fact, with
many other startling crop statlatlca, are dis
closed in the annual report of Dr. George
M. Chappel of the Iowa climate and crop
service bureau, announced today.
The entire eport of summaries by Dr.
Chappel. of intense lntirest to producers
and consumers alike. Is as follows:

planted this yeur was 8,39.til0 acres, or 46,
390 acres less than the area planted in 197.
The average yield per acre for tne state
this year was thirty-five bushels, making
a total yield of 801,873,150 bushels (this ex
ceeds the average yield of the ten preced
ing years by over 10,OUO,000 bushels). The
average farm price on December 1 waa 61
centa per bushel, making th aggregate
value 3l54,9T.3ui, and the moat valuable corn
crop ever raised In the state. Owuvt to the
high temperature and dry weather In Sep
tember, the late planted fields were rushed
toward maturity too rapidly, nnd as a re
sult about 9 per cent of the crop Is reported
as being soft; otherwise the condition of
the crop Is excellent
Wheat Winter wheat area harvested, 85,
147 acres; yield per acre, 19.7 bushels; total

average yield, 15.4 bushels per acre; total
product, 4,968,250 bushels; price per bushel,
M cents; total value, 4,2?2,tW6. Aggregate
value of wheat, $5,716,239.
Oats The oats crop this season has been
below the average In yield per acre and
weight per bushel, ns a result of rust and
other adverse conditions. The area bar
vested was 4,431,660 acres; average yield, 25.5
bushels per acre; total product, 112,830,490
bushels; aggregate value, at 43 cents per

Advertise the State.
Advertise . Iowa and populate the state.
That Is to be the way which will stop the
movement from 'Iowa out to the newer
states or keep up " movement into the
state that will , more than offset all the
outgo, if the advice of Secretary John
Simpson of the state' department of agricul
ture la followed. , In . his annual report
today to the state farmers' Institute he
presented this thought. It is notorious
that Iowa's rural population has bean
steadily decreasing. ..Mr. Simpson would by
advertising Iowa resources and opportuni
ties not only attract desirable citizens, but
prevent migration to other states. He
urged an appropriation for commencing
this work and carrying it on thoroughly
and systematically. The state Institute ap
plauded his proposals.
Agricultural education has made great
progress In Iowa under the appropriations
made for extension work and "short
courses" are now held tn a good many
counties of the state. The last year eighty
five counties of the state held farmers'
Institutes and $955 waa paid by the state
In aid of these Institutes.
The Iowa Horticultural society today
elected officers for the coming year as
follows: President, Prof. Bohumll ShimeJt
of Iowa City; secretary, Wesley Greene of
Davenport; treasurer, A. T. Irwin of Ames.

To overcome the well-erounded and reasonable objections of
the more intel!igentto the use of secret, medicinal compounds,
Dr. R. V. Pierce, of Buffalo, N. Y., some time ago, decided to
make a bold departure from the usual course pursued by the
makers of put-up medicines for domestic use, and so has pub-
. - . s a a S 1
lifhed broad-cast and openly to the wnole world, a tun and
complete list of all the ingredients entering into the composition of his widely
Thus Dr. Pierce has taken Ills numerous patrons and patients
Into his full confidence. Thus too he has removed his med
lclnes from among secret nostrums of doubtful merits and
placed them In a class all by themselves by making them
remedies OF KXOWJV COMPOSITION. By this bold step Dr.
Pierce has shown that his formulas are of such excellence
that he Is not afraid to subject them to the fullest scrutiny.
Not only docs the wrapper of every bottle of Dr.
Pierce's Golden Medical Discovery, the famous
medicine for weak stomach, torpid liver or bilious
ness and all catarrhal diseases wherever located,
have printed upon it in plain English, a full and
complete list of all the ingredients composing it,
but a small book has been compiled from numer
ous standard medical works, of all the different
schools of practice, containing very numerous ex
tracts from the writings of leading practitioners of
medicine, endorsing in thi stnngtst possible terms,
each and every ingredient contained in Dr. Pierce's
medicines. One of these little books will be mailed
free to any one sending address on postal card or
by letter, to Dr. R. V. Pierce, Buffalo, N. Y., and
requesting the same.
From this little book it will be learned that Dr.
Pierce's medicines contain no alcohol, narcot
ics, mineral agents or other poisonous or injurious
agents and that they are made from native, medi-;
cinil roots of great value; also that some of the
most valuable ingredients contained in Dr. Pierce's

NEW MOVE K. & E. SYNDICATE
New York Theatrical Magnates Will
Open Managerial Headquarters
CHICAGO, Dec, 10. Seventy-five the iters
between Chicago snd San Francisco, In
cluding playhouses In Omaha, Denver and
San Francisco, are to be merged Into one
company, according to the Dally News
today, which credits the story to an au
thoritative source. Klaw & Erlanger
are said to be the prime movers In the ex
tension of the proposed trust, although
others. Including William Harris of Boston
are declared to be Interested. The theaters
of Omaha, IJenver and San Francisco will,
according to present plans, be the flrsc
to be absorbed. Owners and lessees of
I'layhouses In a great number of western
titles ar5 reported as speeding toward
Chicago to confer with A. L. Erlanger,
who, with Levy Mayer, attorney for the
combine arrived here today. It Is related
that Mr. Erlanger and Mr. Mayer, assisted
by four stenographers, did not touch their
beds MSt night, but worked at ton speed
semli:.' and receiving telegrams and
pu; ling finishing touches on scores of
agreements, which it Is expected will be
signed In Chicago by the end of the week.
Mr. Mayer, while declining to discuss
details of the scheme, admitted the ac
curacy of the foregoing.
"All I can say," he added, "is that Mr.
Erlanger plurs to mok Chicago aa Im
portant a theatrical center for the weal
as New York Is for the entire country.
Tho p'ans aro still In their Infancy, but
they contemplate for the present the ab
sorption of alut seventy-five houses In
various western cities. Mr. Erlanger and
Mr. llirrls are on the ground and we ex
pect to have everything settled by Satur
day." It Is not likely that the new combination
will make any difference In the manage
ment of either of the Omaha theatera.
The Boyd Is already in the Klaw &
Erlanger syndicate. O. D. Woodward,
president of the Woodward A Burgess
Amusement company, lessee of the theater,
having a contract with Klaw A Erlanger,
which yet has some time to run. The
Krug theater is controlled by Stslr A
Havlln and Hudson A Judah, and theae
penple have a working agreement with ths
Klaw A Erlanger firm. The Orpheum is
controlled by the Orpheum company,
which only last fall entered Into a long
term working sgreement with the other
syndicate. What Is true of Omaha is also
true of Kansas City. Denver, Salt Lake
City, San Francisco and other western
cities. So the new "syndicate" scarcely
amounts to more than the opening of Chi
cago headquarters, from which companies
will be booked, taking that part of the
business away from the New York office.
