More dlth, tho now secretary of agrlcul turo, who stylos hlmsolf the advortls ing inanngor of the department of ng rlculturo. According to Mr. Moredlth tho rubo who formerly bought the gold oncK, or tno guuioio yoKoi who pur clinsod tho Masonic tomplo for ?47 or paid $15 to seo Marshall Field's building turn around, woro wlso mon ns compared with tho general public today. By Its own complacency and lack of fighting spirit, the public has fastened upon Itself 'present outrag eous pricos and a dollar worth 'only 30 cents. Ton, or oven fivo years ago, a man hod to bo assured ho was get ting leathor, stylo and workmanship when ho paid $5 for a pair of shoes. Today ho kowtows to some lnaolonl clerk who throws a :air of varnished paper shoos at him nnd peels $15 off his bank roll without a whimper. Tho samo goos for grocorlcs and meats and everything else. Mr. Moredlth says tho blamo for the high cost of living must bo laid at tho door of tho distributor and ho has a trunkfull of figures to iprovo it . To day there is moro grain, moro leathor, more beef nnd hog meat, moro wool, and cotton, yet tho gulllblo Amorlcan public Is led to bollovo till thoso com modities are short and thoroforo cost ly. Tho now Bocrotnry scoffed at tho Idee, of a ferncrs' strike. Ho depre cates such talk as foolish, as farmers are. not tho sort of citizens who will strike. All they aftk Is something like n squaro deal, although they nro not getting It now. "Pricos of foodstuffs, shoos, cloth ing nnd other necessities, in mnny cases aro 100 por cent higher than they should bo," ho declared, "but tho remedy for this condition Is not In my department. That is a tnnttor for tho dopartmont of Justice." Lofty resolutions by conferences aro treated as a Joke by tno avari cious dealers.

North Platto, Nob. :o: Why They Are Favored By Farmers Everywhere For nearly A 25 years tge3 New Deere Sulky and GariffJ Plowsl have been the most widelyiusedCofitHeir respective types. Here is the general reason- Farmers everywhere have con tinued to find that these plows give the best and longest f seed . bed making service. And here are some specific reasons 1 Their genuine John Deere bottoms, made of the best material, tempered perfectly, and shaped exactly right, cut, turn, scour and pulverize to the best advantage. And they out-wear any other bottoms. j' 2Tr:Their bottoms reach fall depth immedi ately and stay in the ground at uniform depth while plowing they make uni formly deep, roomy seed beds. y .. changing shares a matter of a few mo- . ments. They are strongly reinforced against wear, retain their original shape, and always fit closely. 4 Their forged steel frogs neither bend nor break.V Nor do their frames. 5 They pull easily because the wheels carry the entire load no landside or furrow bottom friction. 6 They have the simplest and most de pendable power lift ever placed on a wheel plow. The $ unmatched record of these plows and the reasons why they have maintained this record are things you can bank on. Come In and Investigate Our New Dccre Sulky and Gang Plows.
