More hearts are broken, more lives torn bare, more tragedies of home and human happiness blotted by the sinuons tongue of gossfp than by all the other devils combined. Gossip is not confined to the'fairer sex the he gossips axe just as numerous and' mighty near as deadly. We all help them to do their dirty work, too. We all bend an eager ear when we hear the whispered words, "Well, she may be all right, but If you knew what I do—" Don't do It fight them. When you hear a lot of slime or a little rot about a man or woman, chase it down and blot it out. Nothing grows so fast as gossip. It reproduces itself like a flame driven by a wind across a dry prairie, and like fire, is deadly to all that falls within its path. Don't let people speak ill of your friends or acquaintances don't apeak evil of them until your eyes and ears have proven that it exists.' It is so very, very easy to misunderstand, to misinterpret, to misjudge. Give every one the benefit of a possible error, and discount your own. observations liberally. This is for all of us—for you, for me, for the other fellow. Because the very advice we give and apply to others is injunction we need ourselves. Hopkins Writes on Return to Country Presidio, Cal., Sept. 13, 1899. Dear Mother: I write you these few lines to let you know that I am all right, I am well. Never felt better in my life, sent you a message from the harbor and have been so busy on the paper* work consequent to mustering out a regiment that I have not had time to write you before. We expect to get home during the first ten days of Oc tober. I have about four days talk ing to do with you when I arrive. We are getting lots of good food to eat, good water, good place to sleep, and pretty women to look at, but the one woman I want to. see is Frances P. Hopkins. My love to you and Laura, and re gards to all inquiring. Vodd. Presidio, Cal., Sept. 25, 1899. Mrs. F. P. Hopkins, Watertown, S. D.

I am getting along pretty well /but am. working hard oif the paper work I think we will get through with the mustering roll about tomor row noon.

We have to cross every "t" and dot every "i. It Is real pleasant tor a lot of field soldiers to tackle a job of this kind If we don't get through pretty soon I am afraid I will go crazy I guess we will get through work in a few days and then I am going to lay around and wait to get out. How is the pony? If she is not disposed of already wait till I get home. We will be there about the 10th of October. Have I got any clothes at home? Prices are so high that I don't want to buy any clotheB here. I wish you would step around to Gilruth's and see what he can do for me. I had rather let him make a dollar or two than give It to the "sheeneys" here or anywhere else, He always used us right and my exper ience has shown me that those are tbe kind to do business with.

D. «.Ju*«s^*a»A%£K4£icte,i& ^V^^BST•affiBgyrefrj First in Wheat First in Oats First in Alfalfa It is not surprising that tbe recent development Of 1£ontan^tp., ift^ agricultural way, has been iharveloua. The fertility ©t the aott elithjs great state of unlimited resources, Is best described by the reports-^f tM Bureau of Agriculture, at Washington, D. C. Montana is not only the incomparable grain producer of this Union, but her qualities of grain are prize winners weherever .exhibited in coni petition. These are Indisputable facts, .and fattttfe on the part ol one engaged in farming here, can be attributed only to the man and not ttk t]ra land, the «oll the conditions, or the markets. Is this not true? InvestCgiSie and aatlsfy toArself." Montana as a producer of alfalfa, timothy, and all grasses and vege tables, ranks Ugh. The qualities are equal to the best. The acre ylelda have demonstrated the real value,.when under cultivation, and will rapidly increase the prices that are now asked for agricultural properties ia thte-stat^^^ §gr wig Fruit growing is ah Industry orlinportancfeitere sui&weness of the soil and climate has been demonstrated to the satisfaction ot those who have engaged in that business on a large scale. In 1890, Montana produced but 5896 boxes of apples, while in 1910, our yield was £15,000 boxes. The cultivation of the soil, and the rapid development of Montana as an agricultural state, will, no doubt, increase activity In connection with the many other natural resources here. Montana Is, and has been, for many y«tars, 8 gteat' producer of gold, stiver, copper lead, zino and coal, and her mines give employment to many thousands of miners, and smeltermen. These, men are censumerii of farm products, of dairy pro ducts and of poultry, eggs, beef, mutton and pork. Ready markets are afforded and good prices are always obtainable. The development of other natural resources In this state will give employment to men, suffic ient in number, to consume the products of her farmers for many years to come. 1 Montana Leads the World '1 For the year 1911, Montana's wheat yield per acre, was 31.7 bushels. Compared with other states In the Union, Montana ranks first in the yield per acre of wheat 26.7 bushels per acre having been the average produc tion for the years from 1895-240$. When It Is taken into consideration that comparatively little of the total wheat producing area Is in cultiva tion, it Is evident that Montana will take first rank as a wheat producing state in the near future.—(From Official Bulletin No. 67, issued by the Bureau of SollB, United States Department of Agriculture.) From 1895 to 1906, the reports of the Department of Agriculture at Washington, show that the average values of wheat crops, per acre, have been as follows: Ohio, $10.76 Indiana, $9.39 Missouri, $8.66 Michigan, $10.63 Illinois, $9.62 Minnesota, $8.78 Iowa, $9.02 North Dakota, $7.66£.„ South Dakota $6.77 Nebraska, $9.09 Kansas, $8.63 Montana, $18.02.

In this com petition Mr. James Todd, a Montana exhibitor, was awarded the prize. Mr. Todd's exhibit consisted of 100 pounds of Turkey Red Winter Wheat and was grown without irrigation.
