Most of the threshing machines in the vicinity of Carrington are running short of help and still there is a crowd of habos in town who refuse to go to work unless they get $2 per day.

The lignite stove manufacturers have agents out in this state trying to estab lish local agencies for the sale of their stoves, but so far the stoves offered are, as Mr. Gieseler was quoted yesterday, too high priced. What the people want in the way of lignite burners are stoves they can afford and that will do the work and these they will get if they continue the demand. The suggestion of the Carrington In dependent in regard to providing lodg ing accommodations for the people wbo come here to attend the fair ought to and no doubt will receive due attention. The only reason it was not dobe last year was that the attendance was large beyond all expectation. This year a large attendance is expected and will be provided for. The bulletin boards in the railroad yard master's office now have daily marked upon them along list of extras east, or west, as the case may be.

SYSTEMATIC PLAN OF SPECULATION originated by us. All successful speculators operate on a regular system. It is a well known fact that there are thousands of men in all parts or the United States wbo by systematic trading through Chicago brokers, make large amounts everv vear, ranging from a few thousand dollars for the man who invests a hundred or two hundred dollars up to 850,000 to $100,000 or more by those who invest a few thousand. It is also a fact that those who make the largest profits from comparatively small invest ments on this plan are persons who live away from Chicago and invest throuefi brokers who thoroughly understand systematic trading. Our plan does not risk the whole amount Invested on any one trade, but covers both sides, so that whether the market rises or falls it brings a steady profit that piles up enormously in a short time.
