Boosting The Farm
Land increases in value only
as it receives the magic touch of
the band of industry. The pro
ducer who lives near a good town
has a pronounced advantage over
the producer who lives near a
dead town. A good town is a
town that gets the business. A
dead town is a town that doesn't
get it. Land around Chicago is
very valuable, because Chicago
is getting the business, but busi
ness that Chicago gets doesn't
make Hickville, Kansas, a better
town. The Hickville farmer
doesn't give a free barbecue to
bis neigbboes to celebrate a 50
per cent increase in farm values
in Cook County, Illinois. The
Hickville farmer isn't in on it.
The Hickville farmer profits on
ly when Hickville gets the busi
ness. If Chicago gets business
that Hickville should get, then
farm owners around Chicago
profit ct the expense of the Hick
ville farmer, and instead of be
ing a gainer, the Hickville farm
er is a loser. Chicago is entitl
ed to'a certain amount of busi
ness; so is Hickville, but Hick
ville isn't going to get any busi
ness from Chicago neighborhood.
If Hickville gets) any business it
must come from Hickville neigh
borhood. Hickville will be just
what Hickville folk make it. The
stranger who comes into Hick
ville neighborhood to buy a farm
will hear one of two things, lie
will hear that Hickville is a dan
dy little berg, and that farm land
near town is worth a pretty good
figure or, he'll hear that things
have been pretty quiet around
Hickville for some time and that
farm land is moving a little slow
just now. He'll find good roads
or bad road?. He'll find busy
stores or vacant stores. He'll
find hustlers or drifters, boost
ers or knockers, and he'll make
up his mind accoringly. He'll
decide that be wants to live near
Hickbille or that he doesn't.

Severe Cold Quickly Cured
"On December orgt I had a very
severe cold or attack of the grip as
il may be, and was nearly down sick
in bed," writes O. J. Metcalf, of
Weatherby Mo. '! bought two
bottles of Chamberlain's Cough
Remedy and it was only a few days
until I was completely restored to
health. I firmly believe that (Jbara
berlain's Cough Remedy is one of
the very best medicines and will
know what to do wneo I bare an
other cold." Obtainable everywhere.
Alas! Poor Hickville
The hitch-rack's empty sad,
but true and-folk are feeling
mighty blue. The town pump
: has a rusty spout and strangers
say we're down a,nd out. The
merchants havn't any trade
the loafers whittle in the shade
the busy man is not here now
the street is pasture for the
cow. The hotel here is closed
today, . because the boarders
couldn't pay. The drummer
never comes to town, with yards
of stories ricd and brown, to tell
the keepers of the stores and en
ertain the chronic bores. There
isn't any business here and hasnt
been for quite a yean It's all
because a catalogue came in one
day our wits to clog. We ran
the pictures through and
through as many bargain hunt
ers do, and then we ripped and
and tore our hair and swore by
heck it wasn't fair the way the
merchants skinned u here and
charged us prices awful dear.
We started up an awful scrap
and ordered from the city chap.
Now our town has gone to grass
the trains don't whistle as
tbey pass they drop the mail
as through they speed and all
the folks have gone to seed.
