The farm tenant has come into his
own in the last two or three years,
particularly this year. He is making
more money than some landlords,
several times over.
A prominent realtor while in Wayne
a few days ago met a tenant on a farm
which was afterwards sold for $200 an
acre who could show him a bank draft
of $6,000, the proceeds of his corn
crop. He then called attention to the
fact that he had over $1,200 additional,
the proceeds from the sale of hogs.
That was not all for he had his liv
ing and considerable more out of the
place. This man wasvready to buy a
farm, but he culd not quite stand the
high price on the farm which he was
then occupying. The same realtor,
who has probably sold as much land
as anyone in this part of the country,
visited Boone county to look after
some farms owned by an Iowa client
These farms can be bought for $100
an acre and the owner was accepting
$4.50 cash rent, but the tenants were
getting better than $25.00 an acre.
These tenants too were ready to buy
To Increase in Value.

His argument was that high prices

only for the continuation of the war,
but for several years following.
In this conversation the assertion
was made that real estate was just
now the one really satisfactory in
vestment. The argument of this prop
osition was that an investment ''in
vacant property, for instance, can be
made at a low figure, say a bunch of
lots or a piece of unimproved acrea'ge
or a quarter, half or whole section of
land, improved or unimprc-
income from such an investment must
be slight and could not be touched
by the income tax which is causing

In announcing our connection with the Jones
Motor Car Co. of Wichita; Kansas, we take pleas
ure in presenting an automobile which we have in
vestigated thoroughly and have found to be a car
of unusual merit. It is a western-made automo

requirements of this section.
It is a factactual and undoubtedthat the pro
duction of the Jones Six has not been able to keep
up with the demand since the first car was sent in

Model Cities Now Dot

Model cities have become rather
common. Gary, lnd., was one of the
first and best examples, being con
structed by the United States Steel
corporation for one of its great plants
and its employes. A number of small
er towns of the same type have been
built. Marshall Field & Co. of Chi
cago are now building a model cot
ton mill town in Virginia. The new
cantonments being built by the gov
ernment will be in some respects mod
els for manufacturing towns.
' The middle west knows little about
the squalor, crowded conditions and
unhygienic surroundings of the old
time mill and mining towns of the
east. Omaha faces such conditions
in some parts of the South Side. The

Advance in Saxon Prices
Predicted by Local Agent
Motor car prices are going to in
crease rather than decrease and the
psychological moment to purchase an
automobile is at hand. '
This is the opinion of W. L. Killy
of the Noyes-Killy Motor company,
who has just returned from the Saxon
"The only thing which has enabled
the Saxon manufacturers to main
tain their present prices is an enor
mous supply of material. This used
up and the price must advance. The
probable advance has not been an
nounced yet but I can't 6ee how it
can be less than $100 or $150," de
clares Mr. Killy.
"Everyone in -the industry is ex
pecting an increase in prices," said
Mr. Killy. "It is generally conceded
that the demands of the government
for raw materials will bring a rise in
prices which will necessitate a higher
retail price for motor cars. In the
last year the value of many materials
which are of vital importance in auto
mobile construction-has gone up from
40 to 150 per ce;nt, and these same
materials are also much used in mil
itary operations and the manufacture
