THE NEW FALL
Couldn't Be More Attractive and Nowhere Will You
Find a Greater Assortment to Choose From.
There am be no. denying that the New Fall Coats, Suits and
Dresses possess more grace, distinctiveness and beauty than
any brought out in years, and it is still further to their ad-
' vantage that they lend those qualities to their wearers.
CONDITIONS DEMAND . THAT YOU MAKE
' It wQl be greatly to your advantage to make your selection
: at once.
'Present stocks were contracted for long ago at prices
that were less than present wholesale cost, and in addition
;. there is an absolute shortage of nearly every sort of desirable
Under these circumstances we feel it our duty to tell you that
on later purchases at wholesale, we will have to pay more for
' inferior qualities and you will be asked higher prices than we
are faking today for superior garments.
Charm in These
Characterized by the tendency
toward simplicity of the most
effective type, these New Fall
Suits forecast with absolute
certainty the smartly tailored
appearance of each and every
wearer. In their very plain
ness lies their charms, empha
sized perhaps by the effective'
ness of the slight trimming
ieartues which are used with
such splendid taste.
; Prices Range From
$27.50 and up to $55.00
Are the Most
Becoming in Years
All the models are so at-'
tractive that it won't be a
question with you of "Shall I
get a coat?" but rather
"What, model will I pur
chase?" for indeed a coat is
a necessity this season.
Not a single model that has
beauty and style correctness
to recommend it has been
omitted from this showing.
There are garments made of
Duo-de-Laine, Suede Velour,
Wood Velour, Pompom and
Silvertone, plain or fur trim
med, large pockets, buttons
and belts as features.
Priced at $22.50
And up to $95.00

It doesn't seem as though Dresses for Women could be made

THE FARMER'S TALK TO FARMERS
WORK MUST BE GUIDED BY INTELLIGENCE
Written Specially for The Bulletin.
I don't know what some so-called
farmers do with their brains. They
nave suen tnmgs, as careful observa
tion proves'. . But thev don't use 'em
in their business. At least not all the
For instance. I have one, rallv in
dustrious and hard-working neighbor
wuo warns to raise corn or thinks he
does.. Last fall he saw me lugging
home from my corn patch several
traces of seed ears.
How on earths-did von ever
get such corn?" he gasped. "Why,
mine hasn't got a Really, decent seed
ear-on the whole five acres."
'When I replied with some stale Inke.
he went on: "Goin' to have any to
sell, next spring? If y'are. I want a
bushel." I promised it to him. Last
pring he . appeared for It. And rieht
then his neglect of his own brains be
gan to show itself.
In the first place, mv com had been
planted ten days and was beginning
to prick through, when he appeared for
the seed for his. nd he hadn't fitted
his ground, even tnen; admitted that
he shouldn't be able to plant for per
haps a week.
In the second place, he hadn't ma
nured nts plat except for a scant
scattering of a few loads at one end.
in the third place, he had chosen
for the most of his piece a low-lying
meadow, inclined to be wet and with
rather sour soil.
In the next place, he finally nlanted
hlis corn with one of those patent
'livnters and without any fertilizer or
starter" of any sct in the hill.
Now, in this particular neck o1
woods we have rather short seasons;
too short for such a crop as corn unless
tne fullest advantage is taken of every
slant of weather, and the fullest use
matte of every known scheme for has
tening growth. Just the least little
movement of one's brains would teach
any farmer as It has taught several
of us that to secure a mature and
ripened corn crop we must, first,
choose warm and early soil: second
manure heaily; third, plant at the
very earliest possible moment; fourth,
give every hill a special dose of some
quick acting manure to push the
young shoots along till they have got
strength enough to forage for them
selves in the surrounding soil.
iffvery one of these primary require
ments Aiy neighbor ignored. He ig
nored them this season, just as he did
last season, and. though last fairs crop
failure had hit him hard enough, one
would have thought, to make anybody
sit up and take notice.
Well, we've had the usual fall frost.
It came a little earlier than some
times, and was a trifle sharper than
the first one sometimes is. it k'J
beans, and tomatoes and peppers and
squashes and corn. My patch of yel
low flint had matured just two days
before, so that it was safe to cut. And
we had cut it. But my neighbor's
much larger field was still "in the
milk." Hardly an ear had yellowed
and practically none had begun to
glaze. He may be able to get some
'soft corn" ht for pigs, though ne nas
no pigs to feed it to.
If the frost had only held off two
weeks more I'd -have had a noble
crop," he sighed, the other day.
Oh, yes. And IF he had planted
when lie sho'J and as he should, he
would have had a good crop, despite
But. I didn't say so. I kept my
mouth shut. Next spring he'll be
down after mere seed corn. And
again I shall keen that mouth shut
For two reasons: First, he would take
offense if I should say anything which
looked like interference with his
farming methods; and, second, it
wouldn't do the slightest good.
If a grown-up man who hps brains
(and this neighbor has them)- simply
won't use them, there's no ground for
expecting him to use any other iel
low's. ' - ' '
Our farms both He in a trough-like
valley, this neighbor's and mine. The
frost whieh nipped ug so sharply aia
little v damage to crops on higner iana,
along the shoulders of the mountains
and on thetops of rounded bills. On
such situations, farmers can afford to
plant a little later, having reason iu
expect little longer safe season. No
do we raise very much corn: So many
farmers have had so many crops cut
off by premature frosts so many times,
that only a few of us still continue to
plant. Those who Jo so, do so only to
supply home needs and With- n- ex
pectation of selling it off the farm.
All the more reason why thosa who
stick to the crop, from , motives both
of natriotisrh and economy, should use
all their brains as well as their, pains
to insure success, so far as they go.
I know of two other fields, planted
about the same time, as mine, which
were cut at the same time, with equal
ly matured ears. And I know of at
least three which are today standing
in limp, wilted, shrivelled hopeless
ness, having on them no mature ears,
and the stalks reduced in feeding value
iv at least a half from the freezing.
Now, the three farmers to whom
those last patches belong are not
drivelling idiots. They are not de
void of brains. They have just as
good brains and just as available as
the other three.
Whv, in goodness name, don't they
use 'em? That's another puzzle which
I can't solve.
There isn't any generally followed
calling in the world which demands
for the achievement ot success any
more shrewdness Of observation, any
more keenness of application, any
more breadth of vision, -any more
soundness of reason, any more persis
tent use of brains than farming.
Muscle? Yes, of course. Industry?
Why, certainly. Stick -to-it-ativeness?
But neither strength nor industry
nor persistence are enough, by them
selves. They must be co-ordinated
and marshaled by brains or they will
waste themselves in useless effort;
dissipate into a fog of failure.
When anyone writes as someone
did, recently that labor is the only
thing which counts tfin farming, he is
talking nonsense. And something
worse than nonsense, he is preaching
economic heresy. He might just as
well say that cannon are the only
things needful to win the war.
What good is a cannon,, or ten thou
sand cannon, with no shells and no
powder to furnish propulsion for the
shells? Or what good are cannon and
shells and powder, too, without skilled
gunners to calculate the trajectory
and direct the aim
Farming is war, in one sense: a con
stant battle against opposing forces
of nature. It calls for strength and
energy and brute forc. No one will
deny that. But it calls, too, for the
highest knowledge of strategy and
tactics, and the most skillful control
of such strategic knowledge.
We are told, with somewhat tire
some frequency,, that we farmers are
quite as essential soldiers of liberty,
and our work quite as vital to the
saving of the world's liberties as that
of the drilled armies in France and
Flanders. No one of us would for a
moment advise the sending of those
armies into battle except under direc
tion of trained and able generals.
Why should we farmers think we
can win our battles if we simply send
our legs and arms into the fields, with
out the wisest directions our intelli
gence can give them what to do when
they get there?
Brawn is an essential in farming.
But it is just a one-horse team, till it
is hitched up with brains.
Reliance upon it, alone, will always
mean "one-horse farming." We all
know what sort that is.
