Catarrhal Deafness Cannot Be Cured
by local applications as they cannot reach
the diseased portion of the ear. There is
only one way to cure Catarrhal Deafness,
and that is by a constitutional remedy.
HALL'S CATARRH MEDICINE acts
through the Blood on the Mucous Surfaces
of the System. Catarrhal Deafness is
caused by an Inflamed condition of the
mucous lining of the Eustachian Tube.
When this tube is Inflamed you have a
rumbling sound or imperfect hearing, and
when it is entirely closed. Deafness Is the
result. Unless the Inflammation can be re
duced and this tube restored to Its nor
mal condition, hearing may be destroyed
forever. Many cases of Deafness are
caused by Catarrh, which Is an Inflamed
condition of the Mucous Surfaces.

State Pays Kail Losses.
Farmers of Montana who insured
their crops against loss by liai I with
the state hail insurance department
are receiving their money fro losses
sustained. The department lias mail
ed out warrants amounting to over
$60,000.
The losses incurred and Hie running
expenses of Hie department for the
year will he approximately $67.000.
The premiums from the 255,000 acres
insured will aggregate SKHI.OOO, leav
ing a surplus of about $33.000.
The state hail insurance department
was created by the last legislature.
There was no appropriation to begin
operations. The business has been
conducted by E. K. Bowman, chair
man of tlie hail insurance board, and
by C. D. Greenfield, the secretary.
The maximum loss that can be in
curred is $12 an acre. K. S. Wilson,
of Koundup, sustained a total loss on
about 400 acres of winter wheat, and
he will receive a warrant for $4.590,
the largest individual loss to be paid
for the year.

Lightless Lights Now.
Now there will be lightless nights
supplementing the wheatless and meat
less days, if the co-operation of the
hydro-electric power companies of
Montana, which Sta'e Fuel Adminis
trator" W. J. Swindlehurst has been
asked by the national administration
to obtain, is secured.
Administrator Swindlehurst, while
admitting he cannot see just what good
is to be accomplished by lightless
nights Thursday and Sundays of each
week when the current is derived from
water power, will go to Butte, to lay
before officials of the Montana Power
company the suggestion of the nation
al fuel administration that hydro-elec
tric companies co-operate.
"Electric signs ruling does not cov

tional fuel administrator, "hut suggest
you strongly urge a patriotic co-op
eration of power companies and con
sumers to follow the spirit of tailing
to eliminate all unnecessary light on
Thursday and Sunday nights.
Persons familiar with the situation
in Montana expressed surprise that
the national fuel administration asks
that lights be dimmed when the cur
rent is derived from water power.
They point ont that power saved can
not be used to replace power generat
ed by steam, because the saving is
only an intermittent one.

INSURANCE LICENSE IS
REVOKED BY COMMISSION
Drouth and Hail Company Put Out of

Helena.—The license of the Bankers
Insurance company has been revoked
by the state insurance department.
Licenses of ail its local agents like
wise were cancelled.
The step was taken as the result
of a Joint InvestigaHon of the affairs
of the company by the Insurance com
missioners of Montana and the Da
kotas. —•
"The Montana license is revoked be
cause the company had impaired Its
capital stock," was the official state

had not been advised as to whether
similar action had been taken in the

FARMERS NEED NO AGENT
TO GET LOAN FROM STATE
All That Is Necessary Is for Farmer to
Write to Register of State Lands
and State Wants.
Helena.—It has eorae to the atten
tion of the state board of land com
missioners that in several communi
ties of Hie state farmers who desire
to negotiate farm loans from the
state have been solicited by and in
some instances have employed agents
to do the business for them, paying
them a commission.
Applications have also beefi made to
the state land board by several men to
be appointed farm loan agents. These
applications have all been turned
down for the reason that there is no
necessity for a farmer having an
agent to negotiate a loan from the
state for him, and the board desires
the farmers to do business directly
with it. In some instances the
agent has made an agreement with
the borrower under the terms of
which the agent is paid a commission
for a term of years.
When a farmer desires to make a
loan all he lias to do is to write Sid
ney Miller register of state lands for
the necessary blanks.
BOY FALLS IN HOT WATER
So Badly Scalded Skin Falls off When
Clothes Removed.
Big Sandy.—The six-year-old sou of
Theodore Eeike, of near Hopp, met
death in a peculiar manner. Mr.
Eeike had made preparation to kill
some hogs, but the weather became so
disagreeable that he decided to post
pone the operation, and had remov
ed a tub of boiling water from the
stove and placed it on the floor for a
moment. In stepping backward the
boy struck the tub and fell into it in
a sitting posture, submerging the body
from knees to armpits, burning him so
badly that the skin came away in
places with the clothing. They start
ed immediately for Big Sandy for med
ical attention but after reaching Esgle
creek crossing. Hie storm became so
violent that they lost their way, and
shortly after reaching shelter at neigh
boring ranch houses the boy passed
away.

AGRICULTURE THE
NATION
The United States and Canada
Have a Great Responsibility.
This Is the day when the farmer
has his innings. The time was when
he was dubbed the "farmer," the
"raosshack," and in a tone that could
never have been called derisive, but
still there was in it the Inflection that
he was occupying an inferior position.
The stiff upper lip Hint the farmer car
ried, warded off any approach that Ids
occupa lion was a degrading one. His
hour arrived, though, and for some
years past he has been looked up to as
occupying high position.
Agriculture, by a natural trend of
economic conditions, stands out today
In strong relief, as the leader fn the
world's pursuits. Never in the nation's
history have the eyes of the world
been so universally focused on the
farm. The farmer Is the man of im
portance; the manufacturer of Us most
necessary product, and he now enjoys
the dual satisfaction of reaping a max
imum of profit, as a result of his opera
tions, while he also becomes a strong
factor in molding the world's destinies.
Manufacturers, business men, pro
fessional men and bankers realize the i
importance of agriculture, and gladly ;
acknowledge It as the twin sister to
commerce. In commercial, financial
and political crisis, the tiller of the
soil takes the most Important place.
Maximum prices, the highest in many
decades, show the world's recognition
of the necessary requirement for more
farm stuffs. The time was coming
when this would have been brought
about automatically, but war time
j
conditions urged it forward, while the
farmer was able to secure land at rea
sonable prices. Throughout several of i

an opportunity of a lifetime. I. arge
and small manufacturing concerns and
practically every other line of busi
ness have been limited In their profits
to the point of almost heroic sacrifice,
while It Is possible today to reap divi
dends In farming uneqnaled in any
other line.
Thirty, and as high as fifty bushels
of wheat per acre at $2.20 per bushel
and all other farm produce on a simi
lar basis, grown and produced on land
available at from $15 to $40 per acre
represents a return of profit despite
higher cost of labor and machinery,
that, fn many cases runs even higher
than 100% of an annual return on the
amount invested. Such Is the present
day condition in Western Canada. How
long It will last, no one can foretell.
Prices for farm produce will likely re
main high for many years. Certainly,
the low prices of past years will not
come again in this generation. The
lands referred to, are low in price at
present, but they will certainly In
crease to their naturally productive
value as soon as the demand for them
necessitates this increase, and this day
is not far distant. This demand Is
growing daily; the farmer now on the
ground is adding to his holdings while
prices are low; the agriculturist on
high priced lands Is realizing that he
Is not getting all the profit that his
neighbor In Western Canada Is secur
ing; the tenant farmer is seeking a
home of his own. which he can buy
on what he was paying out for rent,
and many are forsaking the crowded
cities to grasp these unprecedented op
portunities.
The tenant farmer, and the owner
of high priced land, is now awakening
to the realization that he Is not get
ting the return for his labor and in
vestment that it is possible to secure In
Western Canada. Thousands are mak
ing trips of Inspection to personally In
vestigate conditions and to acquaint
themselves with the broadening bene
fits derived by visiting Western Can
ada. Such trips awaken in a progres
sive man that natural desire to do
bigger things, to accomplish as much
as his neighbor, and frequently result
In convincing and satisfying him that
God's most fertile outdoors, with a big
supply of nature's best climatic and
health-giving conditions lies in West
ern Canada.
The days of pioneering are over ; the
seeker after a new home travels

railway rate of about one cent a mile.
He finds good roads for nutomobiling
and other traffic; rural telephone lines
owned by the provincial governments ;
rural schools and churches situated
conveniently to all ; well appointed and
homelike buildings, and everywhere an
indication of general prosperity ; cities
and towns with nil modern improve
raents, and what is the most convinc
lug factor in his decision, a satisfied
and prosperous people, with a whole
hearted welcome to that country of a
larger life and greater opportunities. I
To Western Canada belongs the dis- j
tinguished honor of being Hie holder j
of all world's championships in wheat |
nd oats for both quality and quantity. :
For many years in succession Western
Canada has proven her claim for su- j
premacy in the most keenly contested
National exhibitions and to her is cred
Ited the largest wheat and oat yields i
America has known The natural eon- ;
ditlous peculiar to AY estera Canada

and so adaptable to grain growing has
been an Insurmountable barrier for her
competitors to overcome. In the last
few years the yields of wheat and
oats per acre have surprised the agri
cultural world. As much as sixty bush
els of wheat per acre has been grown
on some farms, while others have fur
nished affidavits showing over fifty
bushels of wheat per acre, and oats as
high as one hundred and twenty bush
els per acre. One reputable farmer
makes affidavit to a crop return of over
fifty-four thousand bushels of wheat
from a thousand acres. While this Is
rather the exception than the rule,
these yields serve to illustrate the fer
tility of the soil and the possibilities
of the country, when good forming
methods are adopted. Western Can
ada can surely lay undisputed claim to
being "The World's natural bread bas

How He Made Window Sashes,
A young Welshman, a woodworker,
applied at the work of a building ma
terial company for a job.
"What can you doî" Inquired Hie
foreman in charge.
"Indeet, look you," said Taffy. "X
can do any joinery" work whateffer."
"Can you make window sashes?"
asked the foreman.
"Surely !" was the laconic answer.
"Well, just take off your coat and
let me see you make one.
So Taffy set to work, while the fore
man went off round the works. The
first sash the new hand attempted
was a failure, so jdantiug it under the
bench, Taffy got ahead with a second
one, and had just finished it when the
foreman returned and taking hold of
t * ie sash, said, Call that a sash, do
- vcr • L>on t believe I could find a
worse one in the country.
"Indeet," said the wood butcher,
grinning, "you may find a ferry much
worse one under the bench made from
y° ur own timber !"
Then be got a move on.

"Chariots of Iron" at Gaza.
History repeats itself down to min
ute details, the London Star reminds
us, and recalls previous operations at
Gaza related in the Book of Joshua.
It says:
"If that picturesque special corre
spondent to whom we owe the narra
tive of the sun and moon standing still
in the valley of Ajalon had witnessed
tlie onslaught of General Ailenhy's
auxiliaries, he might have pictured Be
hemoth wallowing on the shore and
leviathan rising out of the sea. It is
related in the Book of Judges that
though the tribe of Judah took Gaza,
they 'could not drive out the inhabi
tants of the valley because they had
chariots of iron.'
"Allowing for the Intervening cen
tures which have transformed the
'chariots of iron' Into tanks, we see
that in this case the omens are in
favor of tlie invaders, and we may
reasonably hope that the clearing out
of the Philistines will be final and com
plete."
