The nio:nb:il necessity of a consol
idation of the interests of innmifai tut
ers and thoM' of their farmer cusdom
ern must be apparent to nny one who
understands the present f-ltuatlon.
The Inereascd and Increasing cost of
ninrhil, iiKitiufncturlni? and pellln
the latter in c')iiK"iuenco of extreme
and bitter competition between manu
facturers nnd their several selling agents
has ni'ide the business unprofitable.
The two alb rnatives left for'thr
mnnufMcttireiH were cither the Increas
ing of the prices of mi'.cliines or the re
duetioii of the cot of manufacture and
sales. The latter could only be accom
plished by concentrating the business
In one company.
As can readily be seen, the forming
of the new company was not a stock
jobbing operation but a centering of
mutual Interest?. There is no watered
stock; the capitalization i.s conserva
tive and represented by actual and tan
gible assets. There Is no stock offered
to the public, it having all been sub
scribed and pnid for by the manufac
turers and tlK'ir associates.
The management of the International
Harvester Company Is in the hands of
well known, experienced men.
The officers are: President, Cyrus II.
McConnick; Chairman Executive Com
mittee, Charles Deerlng; Chairman Fi
nance Committee, (Jeorgo W. Perkins;
Vice-Presidents, Harold F. McCormlck,
.Tames Deering.Wni.il. Jones and John
J. Glessncr; Secretary and Treasurer,
Blchard F. Howe. The members of the
Board of Directors are as follows: Cy
rus Bentley, William Dcering, Charles
Deering, James Dcering, Eldridge M.
Fowler, F. II. Gary, John J. (Jlessner,
Richard F. Howe, Abram M. Hyatt,
William II. Jones, Cyrus II. McCor
mlck. Harold F. McConnick, George
W. rerklns, Norman B. Beam, Leslie
N. Ward, Tnul D. Cravath.
The International Harvester Com
pany owns five of the largest harvester
plants in existence, the Champion,
Deering. McConnick, Milwaukee and
Piano plants that have been produc
ing nearly or quite 00 per cent, of the
harvesting machines of the world.
It also owns timber and coal lands,
blast furnaces and a steel plant; It has
a new factory In the process of con
struction in Canada.
It is believed that the cost of produc
ing grain, grass and corn harvesting
machines will be so reduced that the
present low prices can !? continued,
and that consequently the results can
not be otherwise than beneficial to the
farmer. To maintain the present prices
of these machines menns to continue
and increase the development of the
agriculture of the world, for no onu
cause has contributed or can contrib
ute more to this development than the
cheapness of machines for harvesting
Transvaal Postage Stamps.
The Transvaal government has is
sued a set of postage stamps, which
are in great demand by collectors.
There are ten varities, each of a differ
ent color, ranging In price from one
cent to $2.50. All of the stamps bear
the head of King Edward, facing to
the left, in an oval within a finely
headed frame, in gray black. Above
the head is a crown, and at the foot
the word "Transvaal." The one-cent
stamps are a bluish-green, and the
colors of the others range from scar
let to orange, olive green and purple.
The British colonial Oiuce, meantime,
Is considering a new coat-of-arms de
sign by Lockwood Kipling, father of
the poet and novelist, for the new
Orange River colony, which was for
merly the Orange Free State. The
coat-of-arms consists of a plain heral
dic shield bearing an orange-tree, and
above it a Tudor rose; on the ground
are waved lines, the symbol of water,
typifying the name Bloemfontein.
Two springboks support the shield.
Sheep Eat Bottle Trees.
During the prolonged drought that
has devastated large areas of Queens
land, a few squatters have been abla
to save a remnant of their flocks and
herds by feeding them on bottle trees.
The scientific name of thi3 tree is
sterculia, but its popular name gives
an idea of its shape. It is like a
soda water bottle, magnified to a
height of four or five feet. The bul
bous part contains a mucilaginous
substance, which Is wholesome and nu
tritious to those who have acquired
its taste. It 'was pathetic to. see the
thirsty sheep gather around a bottle
tree, pick up the chips, chew their
and extract all possible moisture.

I have been a great sufferer with
piles for years, and I have tried ev
erything I heard of, and have been
in the hospital at times. I have had
bleeding piles, and felt terrible. An
aunt of mine came from the country
to see me and she made me take
Itipans Tabules. I first took two four
times a day, then I took one at each
meal, and then one every day. At
the end of two weeks I felt a great
change. I thank Ripans for reliev
ing me of tail I suffered.
