I Stona. a The MUUke of the Farmer. The secretary of the Kansas Board of Agriculture has been making an investigation of the cost of producing the different farm staple of tho state, says the Globe-Democrat, aud his fig ures, based upon reports from every county, form an interesting and in iitracti vu contribution to the discussion of the most Important of current in- austnai problems, lie mm mat uie cost varies iu different localities, ow ing to the difference in the yield per acre and in the rental value of lands. Taking the state as a wholo tho aver age cost of growing a bushel of whoat is 50 cents and of corn 21 cents. The bulk of both of these products for sev eral year past has been sold at prices falling below these figures. Thus it requires no labored process of arith metic to show that the Kansas farmers who have been raising wheat and corn have lost money ; and (he samo is true regarding the fanners of Missouri and Illinois, Iowa and Nebraska. In cer tain sections of all of these states said crops have yielded a fair profit; but generally speaking they havo not paid expenses. This presents tho whole situation at a glance, as far as the two leading western 6tatcs are concerned. Is it any wonder that men doing busi ness under such conditions are not able to pay ott' mortgages as they fall due or to' nut money in the bank for future comfort nnd happiness? It is easy to say that llie larmers are not to blame because their occupation hno thus become u 11 remunerative: but as a matter of strict fact they are themselves largely responsible for tho depression which puts them at such a disadvantage. They have known for sometime that there was no money iu wheat and corn, and yet they have trnnn on m-oducinsr them in tho larg est possible quantities as if they were somehow compelled to do so. iney mijiht nave raised oilier crops lor which there was a constant and profit able demand. Their lands could have been devoted to uses which would have guaranteed them satisfactory re turns everv vear. Bv persistimr in the policy of producii'g year after year more than was wanted 01 tnet-c two articles they havo simplv done what ihev could to make matters worso in stead of taking judicious steps to im prove it. The idea that a farmer is obliged to continue raising wheat and corn because that has always been tnc rule will not stand the test of reason and common sense. In agriculture, as in every other business, success de pends upon intelligence. The things produced must bo adnptcd to the wants of the purchasing clement. It is idle lo hope for bctlcr prices so long as the amount offered is in excess of the amount desired. To produce more when there is alivady enough is mere ly to aggravate tbe evil and not to ic movo or modify it. If there had been a proper diversification of crops in the last thrco or four years tho present distress would not have coino to pass. In that sense, therefore, the farmers are blamable. They missed their op portunity and failed fa recognize the necessity of changing their plan of op erations. The lesson is a severe ore, but it may prove iu the end to be most salutary and valuable. Look After the Little Ones. S. S. S. is the remedy for children because it U a simple vegetable com pound, prepared fioin the roots gath ered from the forests, and contains no mineral at all nor any poison of any kind.

It is the only remedy which has ever cured this dif ease. For boils, pimples, blotches, etc., on children, S. S. S. is superior to all other medicines.
