Effects of Prosperity.

greatest prosperity, lVom 1897 to 1903.
average prices of breadstuffa advanced
65 per cent., meats 23.1 per cent., dairy
and garden products 50.1 per cent, and
clothing 24.1. All these were products
of the farmer and stockman who
profited more than any other class of
the community by these advances.
The miner benefited 42.1 per cent, by
that advance in the average price of
metals. The only decrease in the
average prices of commodities in that
period was in railway freight rates,
which decreased from .798 per ton-mile
tn 1897 to .763 in 1903, a loss of 4.4
per cent. The report of the Interstate
Commerce Commission shows that the,
average increase in the pay of rail-
road employes in that period was a
trifle above 8.5 per cent.

A 480 ACRE FARM YIELDS 25
PER CENT. PROFIT A
What a Mercer County (Ohio) Farmer
Received from One Year's
Extracts from an interesting letter
from P. H. Rynhard, of Starbuck, Man-
itoba, Canada, gives an excellent idea
of the prosperity of those who have
gone from the United States to Can-
ada. He says:
"I bought, August, 1903, 480 acres
of land, paying $ 12,000 for it. We
threshed 2,973 bushels of wheat and
between 1,200 and 1,300 bushels of
oats and barley from 200 acres. But
part of the wheat went down before
filling, and was not harvested except
for hay. The crop was worth at
threshing time $3,000. Besides 120
acres laying idle, except a timothy
meadow, which is not included In this
estimate. Counting the value of the
product and the increase of value of
land will pay me more than 25 per
cent, on the investment. Two broth-
ers in the same neighborhood bought
160 acres each six years ago. They
have not done a single thing to this
land except to fence it and break and
cultivate about one-half of it. Har-
vested last year 28 bushels wheat per
acre. This year 27 bushels per acre.
They can get any day $25 per acre.
These are only a few of many hun-
dreds of such chances. It looks liko
boasting, but truth is Justifiable, and
the world ought to know it, especially
the home-seeker. I know of quite a
few farmers that have made fortunes
In from 10 to 20 years, retired with
from $20,000 to $100,000.
Writing concerning another distiict
lu the Canadian West, S. L. Short sayb-
"Dear Sir:—I have to inform you
that I have just returned from the
Carrot River Country in Saskatche-
wan, where I located land of the very
finest black vegetable loam, which I
am proud of, and will move in the
spring. Farmers are still plowing
there. A mild climate and beautiful
country to behold. Cattle are fat and
running outside. Wood and water
pood. Saw oats weighing 42 pounds
to bushel. Potatoes large and well
ripened; also wheat that brought there
82 cents. The country exceeded my
expectations. Saw oats In stock,
thicker on the ground than appears in
many of the Illustrations sent out in
descriptive pamphlets. I have be n
Jn many western states, but the soil
excels any I ever saw."
The Canadian Government Agents at
different points report that the in
quiries for literature and railroad
rates, etc., to Western Canada are the
greatest in the history of their work.

Washington, D. C.—My Dear Old
Skate: I didn't tell you in my last
about the fun we had getting here.
We were on the ocean wave two days,
because the whole country was flooded
from the rains, and dad walked the
quarter deck of the Pullman car, and
hitched up his pants, and looked
across the sea on each side of the
train with a field glass, looking for
whales and porpoises. He seems to
be impressed with the idea that this
trip abroad is one of great significance
to the country, and that he is to be
a sort of minister plenipotentiary,
whatever that is, and that our coun-
try is going to be judged by the rest of

V. L. DOUGLAS,
the world by the position he takes on
world affairs. The first day out of
Chicago dad corraled the porter in a
section and talked to him until the
printer was black in the face. I told
dad the only way to get respectful
consideration from a negro was to ad-
vocate lynching and burning at the
stake, for the slightest things, so when
our porter was unuusally attentive to
a young woman on the car dad hauled
him over the coals, and scared him so
by talking of hanging, and burning in
kerosene oil, that the negro got whiter
than your shirt, and when he got away
frotn dad he came to me and asked if
that old man with the red nose and
the gold-headed cane was as dangerous
as he talked. I told him he was my
dad, and that he was a walking dele-
gate of the Amalgamated Association
of Negro Lynchers, and when a negro
did anything that he ought to be pun-
ished for they sent for dad, and he
took charge of the proceedings and '
saw that the negro was hanged, and
shot, and burned up plenty. But I told
him that dad was crazy on the subject
of giving tips to servants, and he must
not fall dead when we got to Washing-
ton if dad gave him a $50 Dill, and he
must not give back any change, but
Just act as though he always got $50
from passengers. Well, you'd a dide
to see that negro brush dad 50 times
day, and bring a towel every few
minutes to wipe off his shoes, but he
kept one eye, about as big as an onion,
on dad all the time, to watch that he
didn't get stabbed.
The next morning I took dad's pants
from under his pillow, and hid them
in a linen closet, and dad laid in his
berth all the forenoon, and had it out
with the porter, whom he accused of
stealing them. The doctors told me I
must keep dad interested and excited,
bo he would not dwell on his sickness,
and I did, sure as you are a foot high.
Dad stood it till almost noon, when he
came out of his berth with his paja-
mas on, these kind with great blue
horse to the fence when he came to
Washington to be innogeratcd, and
where Jackson smoked his corn cob
pipe, and swore and stormed around
when he was mad. and to walk do the
same paths where Zachariah Taylor
Zacked, Ruchanau patched it, and Lin-
coln put down the rebellion, and so we
walked over toward the white house, and
I was scandalized. I stopped to pick up
a stone to throw at a dog inside the
fence, and when I walked along be-
hind dad, and got a rear view of his
silk hat, it seemed as though 1 would
sink through the asphalt pavement,
for he had on an old silk hat that he
wore before the war. the darnedest
looking hat 1 ever saw, the brim
curled like a minstrel show hat, the
fur rubbed off in some places, and he
looked like one of these actors that
you see pictures of walking on the
railroad track, when the show busts
up at the last town. 1 think a man
ought to dress so his young son won't
have a tit. I tried to got dad to go
and buy a new hat, but he said he was
going to wait till he got to London,
and buy one Just like King Edward
wears, but he will never get to London
with that hat, 'cause to-night I will
throw it out of the hotel window and
put a piece of stove pipe in his hat
Well, sir, you wouldn't believe it, but
we got into the white house without
being pulled, but it was a close shave,
'cause everybody looked at dad, and
put their forefingers to their fore-
heads. for they thought he was either
a crank, or an ambassador from some
furrin country. The detectives got
around dad when we got into the ante-
room. and began to feel of his pockets
to see if he had a gun, and one of
them asked me what the old fellow
wanted, and 1 told tlieni he was the
greatest bob cat shooter in the west,
and was on his way to Europe to in
vite the emperors and things to come
over to this country and shoot cats on
his preserve. Well, say, you ought to
have seen how they stepped one side
and waltzed around, and one of them
went in the next room and told the
president dad was there, and before
we knew it we were in the president's
room, and the president began to curl
up his lip, and show his teeth like
some one had said "rats." He got hold
of dad's hand, and dad hacked otf aa
though he was afraid of being bitten
and then they sat down and talked
about mountain lion and cat shooting
and dad said he had a 22 rifle that he
could pick a cat off the back fence with
every time, out of his bedroom win-
dow, and I began to look around at the
pictures. Dad and the president talked
about all kinds of shooting, from mud
hens to moose, and then dad told the
president he was going abroad on ac
count of his liver, and wanted a letter
of introduction to some of the kings
and emperors, and qneens, and jacks
and all the face cards, and the presi
dent said lie made it a practice not to

stripes like a fellow in the peniten-
tiary, ami when he went to the wash
room I found ills pants and then he
dressed up and swore some at every-
body but me. We got to Washington
all right, and I thought. I would bust
when dad fished out a nickel and gave
It to the porter, and we got out of the
car before the porter came to, and the
first day we stayed in the hotel for
fear the negro would see1 us, as I told
dad that porter would round up a gang
of negroes with razors and they would
waylay us and cut dad all up into
sausage meat. Dad is the bravest man
Well, this morning dad shaved him-
self, and got on his frock coat, and his
Hllk hat, and said we would go over
to the white house and have a talk
with Teddy, but first he wanted to go

give any personal letters to his
friends, the kings, but that dad ccruld
tell any of them that he met that he
was ail American citizen, and that
would take him anywhere in Europe
and then he got up and began to show
his teeth at dad again, and dad gav
him the grand hailing sign of distresB
of the Grand Army and backed out
dropped his hat, and in trying to pick
it up, he stepped on it, but that, made
it look better, anyway, and we found
ourselves outside the room, and a lot
of common people from the country
were ready to go in and talk politic
and cat shooting.
Well, we looked at pictures, and saw
the state dining room where they feed
E.0 diplomats at a time on mud turtle
and champagne, and a boy about my
size looked sort of disdainful at me
and 1 told him If he would come out
side I would mash his jaw, and he said
I could try it right there if I was i
a hurry to go, and 1 was starting to
give him a swift punch when a detec
tive took hold of m.v arm and said
they couldn't have any scrap there
'cause the president's son could not
fight with common boys, and I asked
him who he called a common boy, and
then dad said we better go before war
broke out in a country that was illy
prepared for hostilities on a large
scale, and then I told a detective that
dad was liable to have one of his spell
and begin shooting any minute, and
then the detectives all thought dad
wns one of these president assassina
tloniits, and they took him into
room and searched him, and asked
him a whole lot of fool questions, and
they finally let us out, and told us w
bettsr skip the town before night. Dad
got kind of heavy-hearted over that
and took a notion he would like to see
ma again before crossing the briny
dt rp, so you will have the joy of seeing
your little angel again soon. This
wiaknessof dad's made me hot, for I'm
looking for a warm time in New York
and old Lunnon, but dad was obsti-
nate, so home we go for a little visit
before risking our precious lives in an
ocean palace car. So long.
