For the Farmer Production of Soil. The increase in cultivated land is not keeping pace with the in- crease in population. Unless America wants to import food- stuffs, there is only one way to meet the growing demand, and that is to increase the crop yield. That this is not only feasible, but entirely practicable, is shown by the larger yield of the old coun- tries, by the general increase in the yield in recent years, and by the natural tendency of the soil to grow more fertile when pro- perly treated. At one time it was generally believed the yeild began to de- cline soon after breaking up the virgin soil and continued to de- cline. The Department of Agri- culture, however, hai proved that the lowest point in the de- cline has already passed, and that the farmer, with his more careful farming methods, has already brought an increase in productivity. So far the increase is slight, not keeping pace with the increase in population, but there is sufficient evidence to prove that the ne...

& The Home Circle The first duty of a man is to hi9 home, to his wife and his children, if he is so fortunate a* to have them. We believe many lives are wrecked, not as much by the storms of life, as by drifting with the tide and striking the rockd and coming in contract with the hidden sins and dangers along the shore. Push out on the deep water, head your bark up the stream, nune but lazy, indolent people drift with the tide. In the family relation every one should aways be at his bes'. The home ought to be a heaven. It ought to be as nearly heaven as is possible on earth. There should be no purposely withered flowers about the hearthstone and no purposely clouded sun- beams. Selfishness alona ought to be sufficient to make home conduct exemplary. Certainly all want a pleasant home. Cer- tainly all want smiles instead of frowns. Do not sit and ponder over trouble; you cannot dispel it by making yourself miserable. Ne- ver look into the future with de- spair; you cannot cross a...

THE DROWNING MAN GRABS AT A STRAW! Look the country over and you *vill invariably find in every town one merchant who conceives the idea of constantly talking Quality—advertising high grade goods—admitting that they are not meeting their competitor's prices. Then after admitting their competitor is making prices which they cannot meet. Pray tell us what other excuse or argument could they make. Isn't it strange how a 2x4 merchant can buy all the Good Merchandise that is made and his competitor buys all the shoddys. Isn't it strange why a merchant when connected with two or thrse stores and his competitor connected with only one, that he adver- tises weekly that he can undersell his one store competitor, only on account of his purchasing power. For years you read in this paper of the great purchasing power of Three Stores. Today the tide has changed. The one store buyer got on the three store buyer's trail, passed him and is at the Eleven Mile Post, while the Three Store purchaser ha...

! i I. For the Farmer Why a National Soil Fer- tility League? BY HOWARD H. GROSS. From Farmer! Mail and Breeze. The National Soil Fertility League grew out of an experi- ence. The writer was reared on a farm and has for years since kept in touch with farming oper- ations. The last 10 or 15 years he has attendsd hundreds of farmers'institutes as a speaker. His observations are that the farmer is clear-headed, conser- vative and not much given to accepting theories but always greatly interested in anything that is practical. Show him a result that is good and he is all attention. Why should it be otherwise? Many of the so-call- ed theories that have been hand- ed out to him are only half-bak- ed affaiis. A large part of the agricultural bulletins are writ- ten in such a technical way that he cannot understand them and no one else can for that matter unless he is a chemial or college professor. Cannot the&e learned gentlemen say common things in a simple way? It is not at all surpr...

<r The Home Circle Most men would prefer domes- tic happiness to great riches. With some people a knowledge of housework is ridiculed, but a person who does not give home- keeping u place among the fine arts shows an intellectual oalibre away down below the common- place. You will often advance your interests more by spending a so- cial evening in a respectable family, than you will by sitting in your room and pouring over your money matters, or writting a whole package of business let- ters. Supplement what the children learn at school with reading les- sons at home. Reading aloud is good, will improve the reading of the reader, and give infor- mation to members of the home circle who may be obliged towork with their hands in the evening. Young men, study yourselves, choose your work and if it satis- fies you move on. Bid defiance to all obstacles. Don't surrend- er to phantoms—they will ever challenge you; fight it out on some line "if it takes all summer. Our boats are headed ...
