Do Your Advertising Early.
Early Christmas shopping will
take care of itself if the goods are
advertised early. It will not pay
you, Mr. Merchant, to wait until
December 15 before you start your
holiday advertising. Advertise early
and the early shopper will come to
your store. Merchandise and sales
manship will complete the sale. If
you have not already done so, call at
the Pioneer office and arrange for
Moon Wants a Recount.
C. O. Moon has decided that he
will ask for a recount of the votes
cast for register of deeds in the past
election but has not yet filed such
a notice. Mr. Moon was defeated
by five votes according to the offi
cial count and believes that a re
count will put the excess in hismation
Holden Leaves Iowa.
Prof. Perry G. Holden, the manthat
who "made" the Iowa Agricultural
College at Ames, has accepted a posi
tion with the International Harves
ter company's service bureau and
will assume his new duties at once.
Professor Holden will be at the head
of a bureau which will have a mill
ion dollar fund at his command and
his field will be the entire country
rather than one state or section.
There is probably no man in the
agricultural field today who is better
known or who has done more for the
farmers than Holden. The Pioneer
expects to print, from time to time,
articles prepared under his super
vision concerning various phases of
farm work and life. Professor Hol
den is well known to the progressive
farmers of Iowa and Southern Min
nesota and before many months will
probably be familiar writer to the
farmers of this section of the coun
Brains on the Farm.
The farmer who is a money maker
studies his profession, is up-to-date
and like the man from "Missouri,"
you have to "show" him.
For the successful farmer learned
Jong ago that "two heads are better
than one," and that a careful com
bination of his own "brain force"
with that of others in his own line
will do more for him than he can
hope to achieve alone. In other
words, he judges success by results
If you have a theory on rotation
of crops, fertilization, breeding of
live stock or a method of soil prepar
ation, you will be plied with ques
tions and demand made that you
prove your assertion by weight and
If you claim a better variety of
grain the farmer will not hazard a
crop by planting his field until he
has first put it to the test, and if the
test is satisfactory, he will not be
slow to adopt it.
The farmer may be from the coun
try, but he no longer has "hay seed
in his hair unless by test it has
proven to be of a specially high
grade and fertile variety.
If you claim a certain breed of
hog will grow to a larger size, pro
duce more bacon, grow larger hams
and yield a larger profit to the breed
er, you must first "show him."
If you have a distinct type of horse
with the necessary qualities that
make it worth while to raise and
which is certain to command a good
price on the market, you can win
the farmer by proving results and
in no other way.
If you say a certain kind of cow
will give more and richer milk, yield
a larger percentage of butter fat and
produce more profit on the same ratio
of feed, it's up to you to produce re

IOWA MAN STUCK
A farmer living in the Northern
part of Iowa stuck himself in the leg
with a pitchfork. The wound would
not heal and for two years he had a
running sore. He tried all the com
mon salves and liniments and some
times the sore would heal, but it al
ways broke open again. Finally he
healed it up to stay healed with
Allen's Ulcerine Salve.
Thi.s salve is one of the oldest rem
edies in America and since 1869 it
has been known as the only salve
powerful enough to cure chronic ul
cers and old sores of long standing.
Allen's Ulcerine Salve acts by
drawing out the poisons and healing
the sore from the bottom up. It is so
powerful that it heals new cuts and
sores in one-third the time that com
mon salves and liniments take. And
it heals burns and scalds without a
scar. Sold at Barker's Drug Store.

Over 100 people took advantage
of the excellent skating weather yes
terday and the ice on Lake Irvine
was crowded. Although the lake is
not frozen all of the way across the
ice for several hundred feet from
shore, is safe. Last night's snow
spoiled skating for a few days but as
Lake Bemidji has not started to
freeze yet there will be several days
of good skating.
Saturday afternoon a thirteen
year old boy was found intoxicated
by lioys who were skating on Lake
Irvine. The boy was unable to walk
so was carried home by two of the
boys. An investigation was made as
to where he had obtained the liquor
and it was found that a local boy
who was employed in a drug store
in this city had taken the whiskey
down to the lake and dared him to
drink it. The boy was discharged
from the drug store but will not be
prosecuted as the parents of the boy
who became intoxicated wish to have
the matter dropped.
"The Money Kings" or "A Mission
Special, special! Three reels of
modern life. A story of Wall street
conniving to circumvent the govern
ment, defy the people, grasp them
and throttle with its tenticles,
the cry of peace. The octopus of
avrice defeated by a quick-witted
girl and a daring avitor. He flies to
the rescue in his hydro-aeroplane,
far out over the sea. He carries a
message to a young diplomat on his
way to Hauge, and the establish
ment of Universal Peace. Majestic
theatre tonight and tomorrow night.
Much Like Human Life.
A tree does not die of old age. It
accumulates infirmities with the years
and has many diseases. It may starve
or die of thirst caterpillars may eat
Its foliage, scale bugs suck its juices,
beetles tunnel under the bark, scab,
rust, molds, rot, blight, may prey
upon it. The wind is also .n enemy.
Peeling the bark of the birch does not
kill it. The lumbering season is over
when the sap begins to stream up*
ward, as wood cut "in the sap" is lia
ble to decay. A sugar maple in three
weeks yields of its life's blood to the
extent of 25 gallons (70 drops falling
every mitiUte), which boils down to a
little less than five pounds of sugar.
The trees are not injured if properly
treated, nor exhausted by being bored
too much or at the wrong time.
