Tills Is proved by the salo of larjje and valuable tracts of land to rich people who come west to mike their rut.ure hnme. One acre of land In eastern Kansis buys t wo here hnt this will nut to true very long. Those who but now win the Increase Jn the valuation of the land, and it makes a splendid investment. Tbe repulican national convention hag done Its woTk. The democratic convention meets next week. More grief for the Standard Oil Co. Suit bas been instituted to dissolve it claiming that It exists in violation of the trust laws. According to Ilarry Root of the 'Hate Journal an Esbon land dealer last year sold 204 farms ranging in value from $20 to t35 per acre and be believes it will be better this year. What better business could a man ask At the rate they sell here this would mean an Income of not less than $10,000. In the last five years tbe value of land in Phillips county has more than doubled and the end Is not yet. Sales where the consideration averages more than thirty djllaas per acre for ordinary prairie farms are frequent, arid for tbe better ones tbe price some times exceeds fifty dollars. There's gold in every acre of Philips county Soil. Advertise in the Herald. St. Louis Post-Dispatch (Dem): President Roosevelt is greatly admir ed by the young, progressive and ag gressive elements of hli party. They like his daring, bis dash, his con tempt for precedents, bis masterful way of bending the party bosses to bis will, his defiance and subsequent placating of the Wall street magnates. His nomination represents the will of the Republican voters however dis tasteful itmiy be to ra iny of the old "war horses," and government mules of the party. Among others, tbe state Journal mentions John Q. Royce as a probable candidate for Secretary of State two years hence. We have no objection to Royce being made Secretary of State except that we would rather see htm succeed Reeder as Cmgressraan. We believe the Job would be more to his liking aud the Improvement ovpr the present Incumbent more noticeable. Almcna Plaindealer. Docsthe editor of the Plaindealer mean what ho says, or say what lie means ?''"'" Justtn lick someone, this often ex plains the candidacy of olllce seekers, but it Is not a good reason. A candi date who has no other reason for being in the field deserves nothing but de feat and that is usually but not always thecaso. It Is far better to boom someone and be all fur blm, better to have an interest in his welfare and your own, to support him on his mer its and let others do the same Your chance of winning will be much great er, and you will make no enemies and create no desire on the part of some one for revenge. Bo for and not against someone. The desire to rise in the world, to win fame and bonor Is a commendable ambition as long as its success Is riot accomplished by traducing the work or character of ot hers. The man who can rise himself and assist his compet itor, or opponent at the same lime is Worthy of our highest admiration. The man who Is feaiful of his success, who feels that, he cannot win unless he tears down the work of another, ruins his reputation and liierally "kills blm off" Is acontempfable crea ture and failure In the end is certain to be his portion. "Judge nut that ye he nor, Judged' hasa literal applica tion. Defamatory words spoken of another, cause the hparer to seek the reason for their utterance and oftime In the ibspnce of any, the Inevitable conclusion Is that Jealousy, prompted them. Life is to short to be spent in petty bickerings. Honor the man who spears no ill of his opponent. He deserves It and you win find In him one whom you can safely trust.

The late Judge William A. Stewart of the Supreme bench of Baltimore was very fond cf a joke, and he bad an inexhaustible fund of good stories. On one occasion he told how, when he was a practicing attorney, he obtained a verdict for a larger sum than the amount of his claim. After the ver dict had been rendered he asked a Juror whom he knew well how it came about that the verdict was far more than he asked. "It was this way," the Juror replied. "A number of the Jurors were against you, Mr. Stewart, while I thought you ought to have what you asked for. Finally, as a compromise, we agreed that each Juror should put down the amount you ought to have, and that the total, divided by twelve, the num ber of the Jurors, should be the ver dict. I knew that some of the Jurors would put down nothing or a very small sum, so I put down a large amount, so as to be sure you would get what you asked." The result was that when the total was divided by twelve the quotient was more than Mr. Stewart asked. Baltimore Sun. What You Pay For Rent C H E A P H O M E S So far as yon arc personally concern ed represents a LOSS. It practi cally amounts to cne third of your in come at Jcast consideration and some times more. This money, if SAVED AND PROPERLY INVESTED, in a few years will pay for' a home and then instead of eking out a mere ex istence and having' nothing left at tbe end of a stated period, ycu will find yourself the possessor of desirable and valuable property. The renter seldom makes much pro gress. He works to make others rich, and sometimes he will work harder to do this than when working on his own account. THERE'S A BETTER WAY and I will tell you about it, as I have several choice farms for sale any of which will make an ideal home. ft G O O D F A R M S P W. H. PRATT.
