A Desperately Serious Caaa Cured by
Dr. Williams' Pink PI I la.
Bronght to tha very verge of stat-vv
tlou by the rejection of all nourishment,
Iter vitality almost destroyed, the re- '
covery of Mrs. J. A. Wyatt, of No. 1189
Boveuth street, Dos Moines, Iowa, I
seemed hotieloss. Her physicians utterly
failed to reach the seat of the difficulty
ftud death must have resulted if she had
not pursued au iudependeut course aug
gnated by he" sister's experience.
Mrs. Wyatt says t " I had pain In the
region of the heart, palpitation aud
shortness of breath so that I coold not
walk very fast. My head ached very
1-adly aud I was seized with vomiting
spells whenever I took any food. A doc
tor was called who pronounced the
trouble gastritis, but he gave me no re
lief. Theu I tried a second doctor with
out benefit. Dy this time I had become
very weak. I could not keep the most
delicate broth on my stomach, and at
the end of n month I was scarcely more
than skin aud boue aud was really starv
ing to death.
"Theu I recalled how much benefit bit
sister hnd got from Dr. Williams' Pink
rills and decided to take tliem in place
of the doctor's medicine. It proved a
wise decision for they helped ine as
nothing else hnd done. Boon I could
take weak tea nnd crackers aud steadily
more nourishment. In two weeks I was
able to leave my bod. Dr. Williams'
Pink Pills were the only thing tlmt
checked the vomitliiKaud as soon as thnt
was stopped my other difficulties left me.

The Dog It Waa That Died.
A friend of mine was complaining
the other evening of the vlclousness
of a bulldog owned by a neighbor. He
aid: "That cursed dog bit me on the
calf of the leg the other evening, and
I've hardly been able to walk since.
I have spoken to Jim Blank, its own
er, but he only laughs. I am going to
have the dog shot."
"Yes!" remarked one of the bystand
ers. "I heard Jim speaking of It. He
was awful mad at you."
"Mad at me! What for?"
"Why, he said that the dog has been
acting querely ever since, and he does
not know what is the matter with him.
He called in a veterinary and the man
ot medicine said the dog was suffer
ing from delerlum tremens. Jim says
he will forgive you if you will promise
to quit drinking."

Bays Our Prairies Will Ba Filled Up
In Ten Years.
L. A. Stockwell of Indianapolis, a
United States land man who made an
extensive tour of inspection in the
west, wrote the following article, un
der date ot Jan. 8, for an Indiana pub
lication: "States." In this letter I propose
to show by extracts from my note
book that thousands who have come
up here from the "States" have suc
ceeded far beyond their most san
guine expectations.
Mr. N. E. Beaumunk of Brazil, In
diana, was earning $100.00 per month
with a coal company. At about the
age of 40 he had saved about $3,000.
Four years ago he landed near Han
ley, Sask. He now owns 480 acres of
land. Last fall (1905) he threshed
4,700 bushels of wheat and 3,100 bush
els of oats. His wheat alone brought
him over it.000, which would have
paid for the acres that It grew on.
He is to-day worth $15,000.
This Is Making Money Fast.
In Feb. 1902, J. U. Smith ft Bro,
were weavers in a big cotton mill in
Lancashire, England. Coming here
they arrived in Wapella, Sask., with
only $750.00 between them. They
were so "green" and inexperienced
that all they could earn the first Bum
mer was $6.00 per month, and the first
winter they hud to work for their
board. The next year, 1903, they took
homesteads, and by working for neigh
bors, they got a few acres broken out,
upon which tho next year they raised
a few hundred bushels of wheat and
oats. They also bought a team and
broke out about sixty acres more. In
1905 they threshed 1700 bushels of
wheat from it, and 1300 bushels of
oats. Their success being then as
sured they borrowed some money.
built a good house, barn and imple
ment shed, and bought a cream sepa
rator, etc. They now have a dozen
cows, some full-blooded pigs and
chickens, good teams and Implements
to match, and are on the high road to
prosperity. Here are three cases
selected from my note book from
among a score of others. One a mine
boss, one a farmer, and one a factory
operator. With each of them 1 took
tea and listened to their story. "I
hoped to better my condition." said
one. "I thought In time 1 might make
a home," said another. "1 had high
expectations," said the other, and all
said that "I never dreamed It possible
to succeed as I have."
. Like Arabian Nights.
Everywhere, on the trains, at the
hotels and In the family I have been
told successes tbat reminded me more
of the stories In the Arabian Nights
than of this matter-of-fact workaday
world. Yields of wheat from 35 to
53 bushels per acre, and of oats of
from CO lo 100 bushels, are numerous
In every locality and well authentic
cated. At Moose .law, Lethbrldge,
Calgary, Edmonton, Regina, Brandon,
Hanley and many intermediate places
I saw cattle and young horses fat as
our grain-fed animals of the "States"
that had never tasted grain, and
whose cost to their owners was
almost nothing. At Moosomin I saw a
train load of 1,400 steers en route to
England, that were shaky fat, raised
as above stated. If the older genera
tion of farmers in Indiana, who have
spent their lives in a contest with
logs and stumps as did their fathers
before them, 'could see these broad
prairies dotted with comfortable
homes, large red barns, and straw
piles innumerable, and the thriving
towns with their towering elevators
Jammed to the roof with "No. 1 hard,
and then remember that four or five
years ago these plains were tenantless
but for the badger and coyote, they
would marvel at the transformation
Then if they followed the crowds as
they emerged from the trains and
hurried to the land offices, standing
in line until their respective turns to
be waited on came, and saw with
what rapidity these lands are being
taken, they would certainly catch the
"disease" and want some of it too,
If these lands are beautiful In mid'
winter, with their long stretches of
yellow stubble standing high above
the snow, what must they be In sum
mer time when covered with growing
or ripening grains? Speaking of win
ter reminds me that our Hoosler
friends shrug their shoulders when
tbey read in the Chicago and Minne
apolis dallies of the temperature up
here. For that very reason I am here
this winter. The Canadian literature,
with its pictures, half toncB and sta
tlstlcs, gives a good Idea of her re.
sources, but thirty or forty degrees
below zero sounds dangerous to a
Hoozier, who nearly freezes In a tern
perature of five above, especially
when accompanied by a wind, as it
often Is, but the fact is, when it Is
very cold here it is still and the air
being dry the cold Is not felt as it Is
In our lower latitudes, where there is
more humidity In the atmosphere. I
am 56 and I never saw a finer winter
than the one I am spending up here. I
arrived In Winnipeg Nov. 9, and have
not had the bottoms of my overshoes
wet slnco I entered Canada. Under a
cloudless sky I have ridden In sleighs
nearly a thousand miles, averaging a
drive every other day. Stone, mason
have not lost a week's time so fa
this winter. Building of all kind
goes right ahead in every city and
hamlet, as though winter were never
heard of.

Satisfaction with self ts not alwayi

Diversification of Industries and Oc
cupation Haa Brought About a Vaat
Production, Which Flnda a Sura
Market Because of Wlae Legislation.
It will be admitted that we are
blessed with an abundance of diversi
fied resources such as no other coun
try enjoys. But natural resources are
almost if not quite valuless unless de
veloped. Our ore and coal are useless
lying In the ground. Untitled land Is
profitless. Even rich crops are of no
advantage till garnered and sold at
advantageous prices. First, produc
tion must be applied on the farm, In
the mine and at the factory. But that
In itself Is not profitable. There must
be a market. There must be a con
sumption 'equal to production, and
good, profitable prices must be main
tained year after year, season after
A million tons of pig Iron for which
there was no demand would have lit
tle value. Bounteous crops unsold and
left to decay would be a loss, not a
gain, to the farmer. So with all our
mines and our soil and our ability to
produce we should remain poor un
less there were consumers with suffi
cient purchasing power to make pro
duction profitable.
Again, a large production and con
sumption of a single product would
not long be profitable. We need di
versity in our broad land. We need
transportation and distribution In or
der that our people in all sections of
the country and with different abilities
may be constantly employed at what
they can do beBt. The miner cannot
build a house, the farmer cannot work
at the forge or the loom, the mechanic
cannot sow and reap. We have during
a century or more developed all our
resources. We have for the most part
been a nation doing Its own work. We
have by our tariff laws protected ev
ery Industry, shutting out the competi
tion of people who are satisfied with
a low standard of living and low
. Little by little, year by year, we
have Improved and developed our nat
ural resources because of home con
sumption of home products. Let us
take an example. We consume over
$1,000,000,000 worth of Iron and steel
products, practically all of which goes
to labor. Suppose we import one-half
of this at one-half the present prices.
That would be $250,000,000 and we
would lose $500,000,000 in wages, but
we would have to adapt our wages for
what we did produce to the foreign
scale, and those wages would not he
more than half what thpy are now, or
$250,000,000. So that by purchasing
abroad we reduce the purchasing pow
er of our iron and steel makers from
$1,000,000,000 to $250,000,000. But we
would have no fewer producers. Half
of them would be Idle, the other half
working for half what they got before.
They have only $250,000,000 a year to
spend Instead of $1,000,000,000. So tin
farmer must Bell less or reduce his
prices; the woolen nnd cotton and
shoe factories must soil less or reduce
their prices. Every Industry In the
land is affected.
It us take our manufactures as a
whole. Without and duplications we
are producing annually $10.0oo,0io,ooo
worth of manufactures, about all of
which goes to labor. Suppose we were
to Import half of It. Our wages would
then be only $2,500,000,000, for those
engaged In the half we produced would
have to work for foreign wanes if we
continued to compete nt all with for
eign manufactures. And so would lone
$7,500,000,000 of purchasing power.
The farmers would lose a home mar
ket for nt least $3,000.0(10,000 of their
products and what they did sell would
have to be at much lower prices than
now. Again, every Industry would he
affected, and in a very few years mills
nnd factories would close and millions
of men would become Idle. It then he
comes a struggle for mere exigence.
Tho farmer, without n profitable mar
ket for his surplus, simply lives' and
buys as little as possible. We would
become an Idle, impoverished people
from ocean to ocean. The picture Is
not overdrawn. We have hud the ac
tual experience.
But how different when we protect
our labor and Industries and do prac
if nowohk jHMIb V
m I amps and t m' Low, ,
V 50UP housks. Wi plW .
tically all our own workl We have
welcomed nearly 25,000,000 foreigners,
made producers and consumers ot
them, and with these added to our native-born
we have built up a home
market of 80,000,000 consumers, the
providers for whom are all busy at
wages twice and three times those
paid abroad. What we cannot pro
duce ourselves we buy freely from
abroad and puy our bills with our sur
plus products. This Is why we are
prosperous. This is why we are fully
employed and well paid, and this Is
why we can afford to buy so much of
ourselves at profitable prices. This Is
why 1,000,000 people a year are eager
to come to us and become free but
protected Americans. It is not a mat
ter of resources or natural advantages
or of chance; it Is a matter of practi
cal, scientific tariff legislation and application.
Free Trade Pauperism.
Contrasting the bitter poverty of
the unemployed British workmen nnd
their families with the unbounded
prosperity in our own country where
there Is abundant food for the hungry
and a good living for every one who Is
willing to work, the Republican of
Bonneville, Mo., asks;
"What makes the difference? There
are three causes. The enormous
amounts paid by the English govern
ment for the support of royalty; tho
suicidal land policy, which has prac
tically eliminated the small bind hold
ers and destroyed tho rural home, and
the mistaken policy of free trade.
And the last is the greatest.
"Patriotic Americans should shun
that party or that man who would
have them change the present policy
of the United States for anything In
Imitation of that policy which has
made England the home of paupers
and three-fifths of her laboring popu
lation Inmates of a pooi-house at the
age of sixty years."
Very much the greatest cause
greater than all other causes combin
ed Is the policy which began by
shifting the farm workers Into the fnc
torles and ends by shirting the factory
workers Into the poorhouses. The
Cobden Idea was to cheapen food in
order to cheapen wages. How well
that plan succeeded may be seen In
the fact that to-day more than 25 per
cent of the entire population has no
wages at all and must depend on
charity for food.
The Hartford Courant seems sur
prised that the farmers of the United
States should manifest no concern
over the German threat of excluding
American foodstuffs. The farmer has
little cause for worry on that account
To begin with, he has no Idea that
for any considerable length of time
Germany Is going to cut off her own
nose to spite tho American face by
shutting out a food supply which she
needs and must have. German Indus
irlullstg are up In arms against the
threatened prohibition. They see
as its result a permanent Increase In
the subsistence cost of a vast army of
wage earners who even now have
meat on their tables not oftener than
once a week and who scarcely know
the taste of white bread. Moreover,
they see the prospect of being shut
out of a market in which they dlsposo
of man i fact men amounting To about
$120,0110,000 a year. The American
farmer understands this situation per
fectly. Ho also understands that In
the 8ii.nnn.noo or Americans, each con
Burning $100 a year of his products
he has a better and safer market than
In a country which at the best has
never taken more than $2.50 per capl
ta of American food products. The
American farmer can afford to be tin
