The great destructive cyclone which swept this
country, followed by one of the most destructive rain
and hail storms we have ever witnessed, sweeping away
almost the entire crops, has caused the farmers to turn
their attention more to their milk and butter. We want
to help you in every way we can, and we have decided
during the month of May to distribute one hundred new
Improved Iowa Cream Separators at $37.50 each. The
only favors we ask on your part is to sell us your cream
at the highest market price, which is in no way compul-
sory on your part. This will give you a chance to own
the best Cream Seperator on the market to day, at less
than the cheap mail order houses will sell them.
Remember these separators are the large 400 to 500 pound capacity. They
are easy to clean and the lightest running machine on the market.
In our grocery department we have many bargains. Everything carries our
guarantee. Satisfaction or your money returned. We have a few seed potatoes
left that we will sell al per bu. $1.50, Cow Peas $2 per bu. Cane seed $1 and $1.25
per bushel, Cotton Seed 05c per bushel, Sweet Potatoe Plants per 100 25 cents

Pure alcohol can be made and sold
only under certain conditions, which
are imposed by law, because ot its in-
toxicating powers. The increase in cost
due to tax interferes with the use of
alcohol for Industrial purposes, so in
recent years severai countries have au-
thorised it manufactured free of lax.
provided some foreign substance were
added which would render it unfit for
drinking and when so modified it has
been called denatured alcohol. In The
United States 10 parts of wood alcohol
and one-half of one part of zenzin are
added to each 100 quarts of alcohol for
A plant for the manufacture of al-
cohol calls for quite a large invest-
ment, at least $10,000.00, and consider-
able technical skill on the part of the
management. For the production of
1,000 gallons per day at least four men
would be necessary. The water supply
needed for a distillery must be consid-
ered because about 3,000 gallons are
needed per 00 gallonB of alcohol. Un-
der the most favorable conditions
eleven pounds of coal are consumed
markt price of denatured alcohol is 411
oents per gallon, while pure alcohol in
celling at $2.f>0.
Vegetable substances in order to ba
used as a source of alcohol must con
tain sugar or starch In sufficient quan-
tities to pay a profit above the cost ol
manufacture. Moreover, there must bq
an abundant, constant and reliable supi
ply of the raw material. Thus, 100 gal-
lons of denatured alcohol will consume
the following amounts of raw mat-

Your proposition to use watermelons
is not a good one and would cause you
to lose your money because this fruit
contains only 2.5 per cent sugar, which
is not enough to yield a profit. Abo<it
35 tons of watermelons would have to
be handled to produce two barrels of
alcohol; so far a capacity of 50 barrels
a'day 875 tons of melons would have to
be supplied. Such crops as kafir corn,
milo maize and cane, which arc so suc-
cessfully grown in Oklahoma are more,
liable to be good materials for making
