A L-ittl• Farm Well Tilled.
It Is stated that since 1900 the poptv
lation of Iowa has decreased two per j
cent and that the reason is consolida- ■
tion of farms to appease tfcc greed j
for more land, which has grown upon
many farmers whose crops have been
abundant during the past few years.
We have previously alluded to this
subject, but did not imagine that it
was so serious as this. It means, per-
haps, that great farms are forming |
and that small farms are being al> j
sorbed and their owners driven to take
up new land in the Northwest or else-
where or to rent land In their home
state from the very men who are mak-
ing lairfllords of themselves. This is
a sorry state of affairs, compared with
the old regime when each farmer
owned his "eighty" or "quarter sec-
tion" and was content therewith and
gave it .such good attention within h's
mean3 and facilities that it brought
forth abundantly and fully supplied
the needs of himself and family.
To bo sure the disposition of the
family was and is a difficult problem.
The small farm cannot well be cut up
into little holdings sufficient in size
to maintain the children, as each in
turn leaves the paternal roof and goes
to housekeeping. The greed for more
land is making prices too high. Not
too high, perhaps, -while banner crops
and prices are the order of the day,
but too high when come3 the time
that is certain to arrive when crops
fail to a great or less degree for a
season or two and at the same time
foreign crops succeed as they have
not done of recent years. These events
would cause a drop in prices as well
as a shortage in crops and land ac-
cordingly would suffer, although acres
are always a fairly good investment
unless bought during boom times at
While it is partially true that Iowa's
loss of population has been due to con-
solidation of small farms into great
holdings, we think that the opening
tip of new wheat lands in the North-
west has been a considerable factor
in inducing owners of small farms to
"let go" to the successful neighbor
who has had better success or fallen
heir to capital enabling him to extend
his ownership of land. Every locality
has its unsuccessful farmers; men
v ho are unfortunate, lazy, ignorant,
vicious in habit, or thriftless in char-
acter. These people are ready to sell
nut at any time, and euch perhaps
have drifted out of Iowa to the new
land, where they fancy fortunes are
tp be made by merely tickling the soil
surface. Such will not be any great
loss to a district. Let us therefore
hope that the diminution of Iowa's
sturdy population will not lead to any
extended depopulation of the rural dis-
tricts, but to an improvement of meth
ods and management to the profit and
satisfaction of every small land owner
who appreciates bounties and neigh
Send for Orders Early.
People that are thinking about buy-
ing eggs for hatching in the latter
part of winter should got their orders
in as Boon as possible in the fall. Or-
ders that are sent into the poultry men
lnte in the winter are frequently too
late to be attended to. The earlier the
orders are given the surer are they to
be filled. Jt also enables the poultry
raisers to figure on how many eggs
♦hey will have to provide to meet the
demands made upon them. Mostpoul-
trymen like to know in advance bow
many eggs they will be able to sell in
the winter and spring. If they have a
large number of orders they can buy
a few good breeders if necessary or
can at least notify the would-be buy-
ers that ihey caunot supply the eggs
Good Profit-snaring fcnirprise
The United States consul at Vic-
toria, B. C-, reports a scheme of profit-
sharing, conducted by the British
company operating the street railways
and lighting plants in that section,
which is working well. After paying
4 per cent on the stock the balance
of net earnings is divided into three
parts, two of which go to the stock-
holders and one to employes of more
than a year in equal amounts to each
—a track greaser receiving as much
as goes to the general manager cf the
company In Ixmdon. in 1903, the first
year cf trial, a sum equaling $25 per
employe was divided; the next year
$35, and for this year the division,
which has just been made, amounts
Nickname of Coin
The standard silver coins being
used in the Philippines are known as
"Conants," having been named for
Charles A. Conant, who was sent to
i he islands to pre pare a coinage sys-
tem. The authorities in Washington
objected to this nickname and directed
that the coins should be known as
Philippine currency. Before this or-
der arrived they were universally
called "Conants," and notwithstand-

It is sixty years since Rev. Henry

hymn. "Abide With Me," died at Nice,
and this year a fiual effort is being
made in the far distant little seaport

ministered for twenty-five years, to

Feruna is known from the Atlantic
to the Pacific. Letters of congratula-
tion and commendation testifying1 to
the merits of Peruna as a catarrh rem-
edy are pouring in from every State in
the Union. Dr. llartman is receiving
hundreds of such letters daily. All
classes write these letters, from the
i highest to the lowest.
The outdoor laborer, the indoor arti-
san, the clerk, the editor, the statesman,
the preacher—all agree that Peruna is
the catarrh remedy of the age. The
stage and rostrum, recognizing catarrh
as their greatest enemy, are especially
enthusiastic in their praise and tes-
Any man who wishes perfect health
must be entirely free from catarrh.

A Letter from the Ex-Governor of
The Ex-Governor of Oregon is an

continually in the house. In a letter to
Dr. llartman, he says:

The Peruna Medicine Co., Columbus, 0.:
Dear Sirs:-—I have had occasion to
use your Peruns medicine in my family
for colds, und It proved to be an excel-
lent remedy. I have not had occasion
to use it for other ailments.
Voitrs very truly, W. M. Lord.
It will be noticed that the Governor
says he has not had occasion to use
Peruna for other ailments. The reason
for this is. most other ailments begin
with a cold.

"Coffee heart" Is common to many
coffee users and is liable to send the
owner to his or her long home if the
drug is persisted in. You can run 30
or 40 yards and find out if your heart
is troubled. A lady who was once a
victim of the "coffee heart" writes
"I have been a habitual user of cof-
fee all my life and have suffered very
much in recent years from ailments
which I became satisfied were directly
due to the poison in the beverage, such
as torpid liver and indigestion, which
in turn made my complexion blotchy
"Then ray heart became affected. It
would beat most rapidly just after I
drank my coffee, and go below normal
as the coffee effect wore off. Some-
times my pulse would go as high as
137 beats to the minute. My family
were greatly alarmed at my condition
and at last mother persuaded me to
begin the use of Postum Food Coffee.
"I gave up the old coffee entirely
and absolutely, and made Postum my
sole table beverage. This was six
mouths ago, and all my ills, the indi-
gestion. inactive liver and rickety
heart action, have passed away, and
my complexion has become clear and
natural. The Improvement set in
very soon after I made the change,
just as soon as the coffee poison had
time to work out of my system.
"My husband has also been greatly
benefited by the use of Postum, and
we find that a simple breakfast with
Postum Is as satisfying and more
strengthening than the old heavier
meal we used to have with the other
kind of coffee." Name given by Postum
