In an interview given out yester
day, E. W. Decker," a prominent
banker of Minneapolis, states that
the time is coming when the banks
will refuse loans to farmers who have
no live stock. Mr. Decker says that
the banks have been loaning money
to lumbermen when every swing of
the axe diminishes the value of the
security. He believes in loaning
money to farmers who wish to buy
livestock in order that the security
will be constantly increasing in

You Should Buy Prudently
Your success in providing against a rainy day, success in life in
fact, is' measured by the way you spend your earnings. All of your
spendings should be done with foresight and prudence, and this is true of
the articles you buy for your person and your home above all things.
Prudence in buying is principally in reference to the things to be
bought and the means, place and time to buy or not to buy. Unless you
are careful upon these points the goods more than likely will prove dis-
appointing and your cost of living may rise quite unnecessarily.
You can only exercise prudence in your purchases by knowing the
best places to secure the best qualiries at the right time. Each day the
advertisers of THE PIONEER tell you these things, and it is to your
interest to start today and read these advertisements closely and

they feed much of it, and as a result

"The time is coming, in fact it is
here already, when the discerning
banker will have to refuse loans un
less a farmer has stock on bis farms.
The reason that farmers in Minne
sota do not raise stock may be .be-
cause 'it is easier to raise grain. It
will be easier to establish credit if
he raises stock, and thereby helps to
force down the price of meat. It will
mean cheaper living cost, and in
times when the price of grain is low
he will be able to fall back upon an
other asset and have prosperity
where he would have had poverty."

STANDARD OP THE WORLD
The pre-eminent position of the Cadillac, its
recognition as the standard by which motor cars are
judged, are not matters of chance.
For ten years the Cadillac has been manufactured
and marketed upon well defined principles. The
adherence to those principles has been the dominent
factor in Cadillac success.
The Cadillac has, never aspired to ideals set by
others it makes its own ideals and raises them
higher and higher.
The Cadillac has never striven after the achieve
ments of other plantsit is a school and model un
The word "success" has always been associated
with the Cadillac. The word "failure" never. The
Cadillac Company has never produced a model or a
type for which it was obliged to make apologies.

WEBSTER A GREAT ORATOR
He Spoke With Impassive Peliberato
nes* and Really Had Some
thing to Say.
A few years ago one might ocear
sionally meet an old man, who, in his
youth, had heard Daniel Webster, who
remembered and could quote, much of
that great man's utterances. The day
has gone by for any such efforts of
memory. The orator, of today does
not feel that he is "delivering the
goods" unless he it rattling' off two
hundred words a minute, a rapidity
that puts it beyond the power of the
hearer to remember anything .but the
idea sought to be conveyed, and that
too often not any-too clearly/ The
great .Daniel spoke with impressive
deliberateness, for when he spoke he
really had something to say and his
speed was not above 120 Words a min

"easy" today, even by a stenographic

H., January 18, 1872. His most re
markable efforts were his speeches
In the senate on the Greek revolution,
and in his debate with Hayne of South
Carolina. He also acquired great
fame by two orationsone at the lay
ing of ihe corner stone of the Bunker
Hill monument, on the anniversary of
the battle, June 17,1825, and the dther
on the completion of the monument^
In 1843. One of his greatest utter
ances, which may be looked upon as
a prophecy of the conflict that came
near to the destruction of the Union,
may he cited as the best remembered
of his utterances: "When my eyes

TERRORS OF WARS OF OLD
Doubtful If Battles of today Make
Greater Demands on Courage Than
In Ancient Times.
Much is written of the terrors of
modern war. Little is written of the
terrors of the wars of old. Yet It Is
^doubtful if war today makes greater
demands on human courage than war
in the time of Grant, of Washington,
of Turenne, of Caesar, of Alexander.
Consider a stand-up Infantry fight
In the days of the revolution. After
the preliminary cannonade and long
distance musketry practice, the two
regiments marched toward each other
In closed ranks. At a given distance,
frequently at 30 yards, there was a
halt, a smashing volley, and then a
bayonet charge through the smoke.
Bullets those days were large and
of solid lead, and the man who was hit
went down. Over him tramped his
comrades and the enemy, shooting and
That was the type of infantry bat
tles for 160 years. To minimise the
courage needed to make ,a good sol
dier under such circumstances Is to
fly In the face of comomn sense.
Modem war requires a different
type of courage, from that needed of
old. The old touch of elbows is lack
ing. The old feeling of companion
ship is gone. The modern soldier
must be more alert, better taught,
keener witted than the olden soldier of
equal valor. But It does.not follow
that the modern soldier lsjhe braver

"But the greatest enemy of the.
dachshund is the dog tax,** says the
Berlin correspondent of The London
Telegraph. "This year the tax was
raised from 20 shillings to 80 shillings
(S5 to 17.50). The result is that in
Berlin the number of these dogs has
diminished by 4,500 in the course of

number of dogs free of tax obligation
has increased, and is now ,600, as
against 35,000 paying the 30 shillings.
