-It is hard for physicians who have had

thing as recovery and many doubtless
honestly feel that patients reporting re

After her father "had spent ten thou

the dropsy came and the end looked near
she was put on Fulton's Renal Compound.
To use the words, of the physician, let us
ay that she was "temporarily benefit

to twenty years, for it was twenty years
ago, and she was living and attending
to her household duties at lost advices,

Fremont Knit of lntereated Visitors
Who Will Wntch Demonstration"
With Critical Eyes All
KIIBMONT, Neb., Sept. 9,-(Speolal.)-Kremont
has Just furnished a unique
spectacle. Never has such an exhibition
been witnessed before In any part of tho
world, in tho great farm power exhibi
tion promoted by the Fremont Commer
cial club and The Twentieth Century
Farmer, to bo held during; the present
week on the demonstration field Immedi
ately adjoining the city of Fremont, there
are eighteen different entries with a total
of thirty-seven . engines. Never before
have so many machines, of different
make been entered In a slnBlo competitive
The unique spectacle referred to was tho
great tractor parade which took place
promptly at 1:30 yesterday afternoon
The different engines formed In line, pre
ceded by Stockfcldt's band and by a car
containing representatives of The Twenti
eth CentUry Farmer and paraded the
principal unpaved streets of the city.
Thf, spectacle was Impressive, Inspiring
and prophetic. All who witnessed tho
parade were deeply Impressed with the
Idea of the titanic power that may be
summoned from Nature's resources to
do. man's work for him. Never was such
an exhibition seen before.
Streets Killed nttli Visitors.
Although the demonstration does not
properly begin until Tuesday, the streets
are filled with visitors and these lined
tho way of the parade, every eye wide
with wonder. The sides of the streets
taken by the parade and the comes of the
cross streets were occupied by automo
biles, and these, as soon as the parade
had passed, would rush forward to the
head of the line to rewltness the impos
ing spectacle. The interest was Intenst
and the surprise and wonder excited by
what was seen cannot be estimated. It
had been expected that considerable In
terest would be aroused by the offered
exhibition, but what has actually taken
place far surpassed the wildest estimates
of the Judges.
' The exhibition was prophetic In that
It Indicates what the farm power of .the
future Is to be. The farms of large ex
tent will utilize tho high powered and
heavy weighing engines that led tho
parade, and the smaller farms will find
necessary uso for the smaller tractors
that pull two, three and four plow bot
toms. A lover of agriculture, who de
sires greater production, without ath
letlo expenditure of brawn and muscle,
sees in this actual demonstration before
bis eyes the .realization of his fondest
hopes for the future
As soon as the parade was over, the
engines took .their plows In tow and
started for the demonstration field. Dur
ing the afternoon they were engaged In
getting their plows adusted and polished
ready for'tho work of today. Tho actual
work of the exhibition will bejrtn this
afternoon promptly at 1:30 o'clock and
will continue until 4:30. The space' allotcd
to each tractor Is pro-rated according to
the number of ' plow bottoms that each
exhibitor' proposes to pull. Bomb of the
exhibitors have entered only one engine,
others have entered more, and 'one ex
hibitor entered four engines, each of dif
ferent 'type. Only one engine from each
exhibit will be operated at a time. The
exhibitor with four engines may take any
one of the four and work with It as
long as he chooses, and then this engine
will retire from the field before any en
gine of the same exhibitor Is brought to
the exhibition plot for demonstration.
Each plot assigned has a number conspic
uously set up on a post and this number
corresponds with the number of the en
gine to which the plot has been allotted.
It has been thought that this is the fair
est way to arrange the field demonstra
tions, so that no exhibitor would have
more than one crowd of slght-seers. It
four exhibitions of one exhibitor were
working at once, he would have four
crowds of people as witnesses, while the
exhibitor with only a single engine would
have' only one crowd, and for this reason,
In order that the exhibition may be per
fectly fair to all competitors, it has been
decided that only one engine of an ex
hibit shall work at a time.
Will Plovr Deep. ,
Among the field regulations It Is re
quired that no plowing shall be done
less than six Inches in depth and from
this it may go up to twenty-two inches
deep. The public will be interested in
knowing that fourteen deep-tilting ma
chines will be hauled by tractors' on the
demonstration field for the purpose of
giving actual demonstration as to what
machines of such a type will do.
This exhibition has evoked a wide
spread Interest. There are visitors In
the crowd from the Big Horn basin In
Wyoming, who come here for tho pur
pose of seeing what the tractors will do,
and with the Intention of buying a.
ti actor before leaving again for the
west. Crowds of Interested farmers will
see the exhibition, not merely from Idle
curiosity, but with a view of supplying
thomselves In the near future with this
improved means of doing farm work.
Among the other machines that will b
exhibited are two different types of im
mense road machines which will ha
pulled by tractors.
Order of the Exhibit!.
The demonstration this afternoon will
begin at the extreme southeast corner
of the demonstration field and eighty
acres have been alloted for the after
i noon's work. The route traversed by the
I tractors will run north and south. Be
ginning at the extreme east side ol the

COTTON MARKET RISES
ON EXTENSIVE BBUYING
NEW TOItK, Sept. 9.-The cotton mar
ket had a sensational active oponlng to
day, with first prices U points above
Saturday's. There seemed to be a gen
eral rush to replace cotton which had
been sold out on the contract of last
week. This big guying was attributed to
the Washington news, stating that the
cotton tax bill had been amended to take
effect on Bepterober 1. 19M.
Rumors that the senate would recon
sider the amendment to the cotton tax
bill and might make it operative as soon
as It should become a law, unsettled the
market during the late forenoon, while
there was also some selling on reports
of good rain in sections over Sunday,
The Washington rumors were soon de
nied, however, and prices almost im
mediately advanced again, selling GO to 54
points above Saturday's closing figures In
the early afternoon.
