W. P. Morrison of the Wallace
Farmer of Des Moines, spoke on the
"Successful Farmer.'.' The able mai»
ner in which Mr. Morrison acknowl
edged-authority on farming, handled
his subject was both interesting and
instructive. Mr. Morrison made, use
amusing stories to illustrate
the points of his address, in urging
the rotation of crops. He comparsd
the clover seed to the medicine tha
puy.sician administers, saying "this
little pil] will go further to renew the
soil, once run down, than anything
He insisted that farmers took too
much from the soil without returning
anything to replace It that the rea
son many farmers complain of the
soil is due to the fact that they will
not make the right effort to care for it.
Value of Manure.
"How many men engaged in agri
cultural pursuits place the right value
on manure? Is it not often found that
the manure thrown from the stables
about the city is gone to waste? This
should not be. The farmer cannot
afford to lose this fertilizer as its
value in -the three chief ingredients
necessary to fertile soil make it
worth $2.34' per ton. Many farmers
have a few sheep about their places
for the fertilizing value of the ani
mal which is a dual producer, in that
the sheep manure is the richest fertil
izer we have and is Continually pro

by L. Dudgeon of Hedrick, but being

ever the question was discussed at
some length by many of thoae in at

discussion that the success of sheep
raising in this county meant the elim

Frank Gephart of Center township
spoke very favorably of sheep rais
ing, He said in part: "1 would not
advise mixing the breeds of sheep,
but rather stick to one kind, if you
'will get good results.' Nor should
they be kept on one pasture entirely,
but change of. pasture if you wish to
make them pay."
Mr. Gephart said, sheep raising
-beats cattle raising" in this county
considerably unless the cattle are
milked. Some complain of the flat
ground. I would recommend larger
variety pf sheep for this kind of
ground and my experience with
sheep, as to pasturage necessary foi

The Farmers' Relations to the Home
(By W. G. Duffield. of the Dain Man
ufacturing Co.)
Human nature is composed of many
characteristics, two of which are sel
fishness and pride. We are selfish in
that we struggle to better ourselves as
a community we demonstrate our
pride by viewing with pleasure the ac
complishments of such efforts. As the
success if any one industry in a com
munity is reflected by all industries
comprising that community, the atti
tude toward each other of the com
ponent parts of a community should
be that of friendliness.
That we are friendly Is manifested
by our aptness to take alarm at any
condition arising that will have an ad'
verse effect on any particular branch
of our industries, and our wjllingness
to Join in any measure that may elim
inate the cause. We recognize thereby
that our interests as a community aro
We do not learn with regret that our
city has gained a hundred or five
hundred new mouths to feed, for It
means a more stable, uniform market
for our products. It also means that
there will be carried for our inspec
tion larger stocks and assortments of
goods such as we buy, and that our
circle as a shopping center will be en-

larged, which adds materially .tO'the
welfare of the conlmunity as a,whole,
As that part of a conVrti'unity* sur
rounding a city expects to dispose of
many of its products to that part in
-the city, shouldn't they in return con
sume as large a portion of the city's
products as they may have occasion to
use?. For example: There are In Ot
tumwa, employed in the manufacture
of cigars, over 400 people, buying the
products you have for sale. If you use
tobacco in this form, is it not due
these people that you consume the
1 roduct of their labor instead of an
article Hiade far away, especially when
the honio production is up to or above
tlie stnmiiird of quality.
Th" consuming of the home produc
tion Js due all of our manufacturers,
for no factories located in Illinois or
anv o,(he: state for that matter, cre
ates a local market for the products
you have for sale. They have no prop
erty in your county which can be as
sessed to help bear your burden of
taxation they do not help build or
maintain the little white school house
in your district. The home institutions
are factors in such matters, and.
•therefore have the right to expect
your bupport.
That Ottumwa is a logical manufac
turing center is evidenced by the suc
cessful enterprises established here,
doing a flourishing business.
We have 71 factories. producing
goods to the value of $15,462,358.50 per
annum, ^employing 3.287 people, who
receive waees during the year amount
ing to $1,612,328.19.
It needs no areument to bear out
the fact of a statement that 3 000 fac
tory employes, receiving wages, make
Ottumwa a better market point for
you than if she only had 1.000 factory
employes receiving wages. That being
the case, is is not evident that a close
relationshio exists between the farm
er and the home manufacturer?
The farmers within a radius of 50
miles, and of Wapello countv especial
ly. have a cause for ereat nride in their
principal city and its industries, and
upon their unswerving loyalty and
patronnee in a great measure depend
the future growth of our city. A prop
er rplstlonship and spirit of loyalty
from the community surrounding a
city goes far toward inducing new in
dustries to locate therein. New indue-

Guilty Returned In Mt. Pleas

Mt.. Pleasant, Dec. 12.—The Hicks
case came to an abrupt end late Tues
day evening when Judge Smyth took
the case from the jury and ordered a
verdict of "not guilty." The motion to
take the case trom the jury was made
by Mr. Springer, attorney for the de
fendant. on the grounds that Hicks
did not commit forgery by signing hh
name to a contract representing him
self to be the agent of a Bioomington,
111. nursery.
Judge Smyth sustained the motion,
holding that the act in itself did not
constitute forgery £s defined in the
statutes. By signing ...a name to the
contract as the agent of the Bioom
ington. 111., nursery. Hicks did not
forge the name.of anyone. He signed
his own name, and whether or not ie
was the agent of this company was
not material under the crime char go
and the court held that he could not
be held for forgery under the evi
dence presented.
