Chicago, Dec. 10. A few of the lc-;

sold theft- wheat. Tone of gossip after
close was bearish as a result of gen-j
cral news. A few are asking if se-i
curity weakness means anything.

in order for a
man to be successful tiller of the soil
he must be a student; he must, keep
up with the procession and he must
not depend upon his ancestors for his
ducation. Father and grandfather
may have been successful in their
crude ways and in their time, but if
they were, that is not saying that we
will be successful by using the same
methods. They had a soil that was
virgin, we have not; they wore home
spun garments, we do not; they de
pended upon oxen to do their burden
some work and transport them from
place to place, we do not; they ate
the simplest and plainest food, we do
not; they lived In an age when luxur
ies were few and far between, when
privation was tbe rule and not the ex
ception as it is now, we do not; their's
was an age of subjugation, ours is an
age of progression and enlightenment;
why not keep up with the procession.
We do not necessarily have to take
an agricultural course at a college to
be good farmers, but we do have to
be students. The knowledge is at
hand; we have only to look about us,
Lead, study and wake up.

The Illinois agricultural experiment
station and the more progressive far
mers of the state have developed a
system of farming which means, not
only productiveness, but permanency.
It is productive because the elements
that compose plant, food and the sourc
es from which they are derived are
well known that all of the essential
elements can be indefinitely maintain
ed. This system is thoroughly ex- j
plained in Illinois Farmers' Institut-i
report, volume 16, paragraphs 42 48. 1
We earnestly urge all fanners and I
land owners to adopt this permanent
fcystem as rapidly as possible, for. If
we repeat In Illinois the history of
land ruin in Palestine, in southern.
Europe, in Russia, and In the eastern
I'nited States, whore shall our chil
dren go for bread? After the land lit

in soil improvement. Poverty is help
less. Illinois can not afford to wait
25 or 50 years before adopting a per
manent system of soil improvement
