Whiskey Row Is in mourning." The
foregoing is the concluding sentence
in a special telegram from West Ham
mond, Indiana which tells of a thrill
ing crusade made-by a militant girl
reformer, Virginia Brooks, against
the vice and crime t hai had controlled
every feature of the city's life. Miss
Jirooks began her battle against the
criminal saloons and gambling dens
of West Hammond almost single
handed. Several time she was beat
en and piobbed. Her home was
burned, but she kept on. Her chief
victory came last May, about the same
time similar victories came to cv-ral
Michigan cities. When West Ham
mond became a city and elected a
clean and honest administration.
The same disreputable means and me
thods, were utilized agai.ist MUs
iirooks'at West Hommoud that have
been utilized in Indiana and elsewhere
against anti-saloon workers and the
victory which came to those who
made the brave contest for cleanliness
and righteousness in that Indiana
city is one that, will well repay all
that it cofet, just as is true of anti sa
loon victories everywhere, It is this
result there which gives especial
meaning' and value to the closing
lines of the opening sentence of this

BIG GAINS IN MICHIGAN
State Becoming Important Be-
cause of Its Farm Crops. .
As late as 1800 the principal indus
try in Michigan was lumbering, and
till state was the gieatest lumber
producing section in America, Even
In iooo Michigan boasted more lum
ber camps and saw mills than any
other fatate, although it had become
second to Wisconsin In annual output
To-day, however, Michigan is seeking
fame through another industry. It is
forging ahead because of the activity
of it's people In an agricultural way.
Ten years ago third place for a few of
the farm products was the best show
ing that could be made, now Mich
igan holds one first place, two second
places, and several third places.
Just where another ten years will
bring it, is hard to tell, but this
much is certain, it will be well to
the front among the agricultural
In ten years Michigan has advanced
from fourth to first, place In the pro
duction of rye; from third to second
place for potatoes; from sixth to se
conil place for apples; from eighth to
third place for pears; from fifth to
third place for grapes: from sixth to
fourth place for cherrles.and from se
venth to fifth place for peaches.
Michigan's ranking among the
s'u'es for the production of the more
Importaut farm and orchard crops,ac
cording to the Hgures being Issued by
the census bureau, is as follows;
Rye Michigan ranks First.
Potatoes, Apples Second.
Buckwheat, Grapes, Pears Third,
Hay and Forage Thirteenth.
The meaning of the above figures Is
that not less than thirty.four states
produce less of each one of the above
mentioned crops than does Michigan.
Michigan stands fifteenth among
the states In the value of its farm
lands, sixteenth In the number of
farms; and It is eigthteenth In the
average per acre value of Its farm

New Market for Apples.
A market has been found iu Great
BrJtaln for 100 car loads of Western
Michigan apples, provided that quan
tity of fruit, that will grade number
ne or better, can be obtained this
fall. Join I. Gibson, the secretary of

Bureau, is returning from Liverpool
where he has secured full Information
regarding the demands of the British

that the Development Bureau will es
tablish a label for Western Michigan
fruit, adopt standards, and attempt
to supply the wants of the pooplo of
the British Isles.

is here again. There is no food so well adapted
for use in the warm and hot months as that pre
pared from Graham Flour, if the Graham is the
real true-to-name kind as it contains the natural
phosphates of the grain. Our Graham is made
from native wheat, cleaned, re-cleaned, and
ground by one reduction on a French Bhur,
so that it contains all the natural elements of the
grain. It is far better than all the so-called
health foods and cuts down the high cost of
