during the early summer and the
minimum (in the form of snow) dur
ing the winter months. This distrir
bution of precipitation combined
with low temperatures of winter and
only moderately high temperatures
of summer make conditions just right
for the cultivation of the best grain
and cereal crops.
The humidity is normal, averag

It is true that the state is visited
by early frosts in the autumn and
late, frosts in the spring making the
growing season rather short. How
ever the abundance of sunshine com
bined with the other factors men
tioned above gives rise to a rapid
growth of the crops that are sown.
The accumulation of snow during
the winter is not an indication of
heavy snowfall. The continued cold
of winter prevents melting and the
rapid evaporation of snow hence
nearly all that falls remains on the
ground till spring. Heavy rains are
not wanted during the planting sea
son although moisture in the soil is
very welcome. The combination of
many hours of sunshine, low rainfall
and melting snows of spring which
furnish requisite moisture for the
soil, meet with the farmer's hearty

largest crops. A great variety of
fruits such as raspberries along the

of the state, and plums and melons,
add to the output.
Grasslands Are Excellent.
The excellent grasslands, a re

RACING ROLLER SKATERS
W. B. MacLachlan, proprietor of
the roller skating rink, beginning to
night will put in operation a plan
which he hopes will be a benefit to
all roller skaters: Last night many
of the younger men mistook the rink
for a speed rink and cut capers on
the floor which endangered them
selves as well, as the ladies. His plan
is to open the rink from 7 to 7:30 to
those who wish. to speed but after
that they must slowdown to the reg
ular speed. For fifteen minutes each
evening no one but the ladies will
be allowed on the floor and then for
fifteen minutes the floor will be used
for racing. The same length of time
will be given to the ladies with their
escorts to enjoy a good skate with
out fear of collision with others. Mr.
MacLachlan intends to put on some
exciting races this winter with out
of town men as well as the local
speeders. Later on masquerades will
be given with prizes awarded for the
best costumed couples.

OLD AT 40
Some Younger at 65 Than Others Are
at 40 Years.
So many people whom you meet
about the time they reach 40 begin
by saying "I can't do this, and I
can't do that, because I'm getting old
now," they begin to act old, feel old
and they are older in appearance
than many who are much more ad
vanced in years.
When you begin to feel old, when
your energy begins to fail build
yourself up with our delicious cod
liver and iron tonic, Vinol. It is a
wonderful blood-maker and strength
Mr. J. N. Kelley, aged 75 who lives
at Lake Charles, La., says: "I took
Vinol for a run-down condition, it
not only built up my strength, but I
feel fifteen years younger than I did
before taking it."
Thousands of old people have found
in Vinol just the medicine they need
to build up the feeble, weakened sys
tem and create strength. If it fails,
we return your money. Barker's
