Writing to the Northwestern Miller, Eugene M. Janssens, a leading flour importer of Ant werp, Belgium, says: "Your article on goose wheat also very much interested us. Perhaps it will be of some us^ to you to hear that we receiv ed a parcel of goose wheat flour about nine months ago and that, so far, we have not been able to sell a single bag of it, although we have done all we could to clear it. We delivered samples to bakers, confection ers and biscuit manufacturers, but nobody would have it." JBRECK. TO HAVE CREAMERY.

RELIEF FROM RHEUMATIC Fains. "I suffered with rheumatism for over two years," sa\s Mr. Rolland Curry, a patrolman, of Key West, Fla. "Sometimes it settled in my knees and lamed me so I could hardly walk, at other times it would be in my feet and hands so I was in capacitated for duty. One night when I was in severe pain and lame from it my wife went to the drug store here and came back with a bottle of Chamberlain's Pain Balm. I was rubbed with it and found the pain had nearly gone dur ing the night. I kept on using it for a little more than two weeks and found that it drove the rheumatism away. I have not had any trouble from that disease for over three months." For sale by Henry Miller.

THE WAHPETON TIMES, THURSDAY, MAY 30, 1907. TO IHPROYE SYSTEM. Northwestern Company Spend- For the past two or three months the Northwestern Tele phone Exchange Company have had a force of men in Wahpeton and Breckenridge rebuilding the entire telephone system, taking down wires, changing lines, putting up new poles, and paving the way for what is known as the "Central Energy or Common Battery Telephone system." In addition to making all these changes in the outside plant, the company has erected a new building to house their new switchboard and as head quarters for the operating and maintenance departments of Wahpeton and vicinity. Prior to October 1st, 1906, the telephone exchanges at Wah peton, Breckenridge, Campbell, Fairmount, Forman, Hankin son, Lisbon, Milnor, and Wynd mere, and the toll lines connect ing and surrounding these ex changes, were the property of the Great Western Telephone company. On that date the property was purchased by the Northwestern company and made a part of their immense system. Immediately after the pur chase, the engineers were sent intj all of these points and over the toll lines to make a study of the plant and plans to bring the equipment and service up to the highest standard known to the telephone art. Few people appreciate the enormous displacement and the numerous changes required in a telephone plant to keep the apparatus and lines up-to-date, so as to furnish the telephone using public with a satisfac tory class of service. The actual figures, based on long experience in the telephone business, give the average de preciation of an entire tele phone system as 12 per cent per year. This means that the entire plant has to be replaced every eight years. These figures are based on plants wearing out, but do not cover the ex traordinary changes required on account of the invention of new apparatus and changes in methods that improve the sub scribers serrice. No telephone company does its full duty to the people it serves unless it does keep its plant and service up to the highest standard, and the Northwestern Telephone Ex change Company, immediately upon coming into possession of the property in Wahpeton, be gan the improvements that are now under way. Copper and copper wire, one of the commodities most used in telephone plants, has in creased in cost over one hun dred per cent in the past two years and all other material used in telephone work has in creased in almost the same pro portion. The cost of labor, too, is higher now than ever before. The telephone system that is now in use in Wahpeton is what is known as a "Grounded Cir cuit or Single Wire System." The new system will be all me tallic circuits, two wires being used for each telephone, giving clearer and better service the batteries, instead of being located at each telephone as in the past, will be located at the central office. It will be under the care of an experienced man who will see that they are al ways kept up to the highest standard, thus making the transmission uniformly good every day in the year. Under the old system, the batteries were located at the telephone and after a limited time, began to play out and an inspector had to be sent to FROM THE PRESIDENT OF THE MINNESOTA DAIRY MEN'S ASSOCIATION AND EDITOR OF THE ST. PAUL FARMER. Glenville, Minn., June 20,1905. Iowa Dairy Separator Co. Waterloo, Iowa. Gentlemen:—We fiave made several tests of your separator and find that it does excellent work, even when run under very unfavorable conditions. We find that it skims to a trace in skimming milk as cold as 70, and also that it would skim beyond its rated capacity. We are entirely satisfied, and the machine you sent us on trial is accepted. Yours very truly, A. W. TROW. We guarantee the "Iowa" to skim closer, last longer and run easier than any other separator manufactured. make a change. When new, the service was good, but each day that they were in use be came weaker and weaker, thus making the service fluctuate. The subscribers, under the old system, were compelled to turn a crank and ring a bell for central and central was com pelled to listen on the line to see whether or not the sub scriber. had gotten the connec tion and to find out when they were through talking. Under the new system, subscribers will simply take the telephone off the hook. This will operate a small signal in front of the operator at central office, indi cating that central is wanted, and giving the number of the line calling. After the connec tion has been made, automatic signals indicate when the cal led party answers, and when either or both parties hang up their telephones. This will do away with many of the annoy ing interruptions that subscri bers have been compelled -to put up with and will make a much more rapid service. In fact, the officials of the North western company claim that this system is the most up-to date in use and will be equip ped and operated along the same line as the telephone systems in the large cities. The public, generally, in speaking of telephone rates, speak of the price they pay for their telephones as though they rented the instruments and that was all they paid for. As a matter of fact, the instrument is simply an incident to the service. It is service that the company sells and service that the public pays for. and the telephone-using public in a town like Wahpeton, want the best and. should have it, and the telephone company is fur nishing them with every mod ern telephone equipment and the highest grade of telephone service, and with toll line facili ties reaching practically every village and town in the United States east of the Rocky Moun tains.
