Secretary of Agriculture Wallace, in a statement sent out by the department. sa. s that no man whose opinion is worth considering would care to make any hard-and-fast prophecies regarding the pros pect of the farmer in VJ'JrJ, but points out that there are sijnis which indicate that the coming year should be a better one for the farmer and for those who deal with him than was l'.t'Jt. Among these hopeful signs he mentioned are these: 'redit conditions are better, both through-regular channels anil through the siM-cial agencies created to meet the farmer's needs. Interest rates are also softening. inductions already made in freight rates on farm products lighten by that much the trausjKirtation burden which the farmer has been carrying. Cost of producing farm crops will be lower relatively in i'.VJ:! than in JOlil. Very likely there will be a reduction in the acreage of some of the grains of which we now nave sucii a large surplus, auu this should tend toward better prices.- j The paralyzing effect of the sudden drop i in prices, last year is wearing off, ami j fanners Will enter the new year more' hopefully, believing that the worst is1 over. Congress has indicated a willingness to enact such legislation as promises to be helpful. j "Farmers are -coming t see more ( clearly that the task of putting farming on a sound business basis is really up to them, and that through organisation they; can reduce marketing cost." continues the secretary. in tins tney win nave 411- creasing help from the department of agriculture and the various, state agricul-1 tural colleges, which now see better than 1 before that they must give the farmer thej same sort or lielp in tne marKctiiig ot nis crops that they have been giving him in t he production. . '"In the industrial and financial cen ters there is coming to be a better under standing of the important part the farmer plays in our general economic scheme, and consequently a decidedly more intel ligent and sympathetic attitude toward him and his problems. "With prices of farm products falling, and the future very uncertain, even those tanners who had money laid by and there are a large number of such have been rest rifling their buying to what they had to have. Now. with the growing be lief that prices have hit bottom, buying will be resumed, and should increase in Volume, and manufacturers and retailers who make or sell things that farmers need or want should have better business this coming year. "Kverything considered, therefore, we can enter the new year in a spirit of hopefulness and good cheer. 1 see noth ing wiucli indicates lioom 'lines toy t lie farmer in the near future, but there dues seem to be promise of belter times both for the farmer and for those whose busi ness is largely dependent upon him.

Editor of The Reformer: 1 noticed several articles in tin papers about the financial condition of our state and a remedy for our large ex penses. It seems to me that an investiga tion would he in order and that some of the supertluous commissions could be eliminated. There seems to be a growing tendency to evade the real. hard, efficient work and to seek after easy work, with large salary ami ample allowance for traveling expenses. The last legislature raised the pay of the judges and (if I mis take not increased the number. Is their work done with greater dispatch than before? Massachusetts has a law which ha been tried out with success. By this law if the bill to' be collected is less than .$."'.5 it -nn be brought before the judge with out jury or counsel and the judge decides. Jf it is just he orders it paid and there is no appeal. If this were done with bills up to !50 it would avoid much needless expense. I was in the house in IfMKJ and helped pass the present school law, but have been a little disappointed in the way high salaried supervision has worked out. 1 think there is room for improvement in road making, both in quality ami ex pense.

H. P. Wellmau & Co., Inc. Members of Besse-Foster System I NK FFATIIF.RS FOR PRAVFRS. Intense Religious Sisnificaiice of More Value Than Their I se for Ornaments. Feathers have an intense religious significance for Indians, and are valued for this far more than for their value as ornaments.' To a 1Ioh a feather is tantamount to a prayer, and the use of one or two feathers in his prayers is considered siiliicient to ensure a favor able reply. When an Indian desires something urgently he will tie a feather to a stick and conceal it in a shrine which he him self has constructed. This is considered eilicaeious. Small, tiuiTv feathers dangling from the ceilings of huts by strings are com mon sights. They represent prayers for tritles. Indians are always careful to keep stock of prayers or feathers on hand, so that tliev will not be caught empty handed when an occasion for prayer arises. It was a departure from this custom which accounts for the use of feathers in costumes. Squaws of tribes whose habitat was Virginia wore mantles fringed with feathers, and the Colonial records also tell of coats made of blue feathers sewed so close and thick that the coat looked like satin. Detroit Xows. high-grade representatives to colleges in th- scholastic vear and to hotels in the summer s-.-a.-on to special-oair measure ami sell. The agur.'gate of these special order sr.les is well up in the millions. The newer form of house-to-house sell ing is on woman's comfort and style footwear and from oiiice to otiice on men's higher grade and medium priced shoes. Tlie shoe business is not the only one subject to this nibbling competition everything from aprons to rugs and drapery is sold bv canvassers. In Phila delphia ami vicinity for years the 'buy ing representative' does the shopping for the women who cannot go to town. I lie standard discount at one time given by most stores was ID per cent, and registered 'buying commissioners' were authorized to charue all purchases to their accounts. Thus the suburban housekeeper had an extension of credit for thirty das or less, and sometimes, if purchases ' were larjte, a discount of 5 per cent. "When a woman commissioir could do a business of slTO.iMId and reap SlT.Uf'O for the ciYort St revealed an unhealthy condition in merchandising. Most of these nractiee have ,lecn discouraged, but idieations are that some apparel and commodity wholesalers were not advers. to the scheme when the retail drv goods merchant stopped the lit pcr ceut privilege. It is one more indication that the nagciiur and insidious propaganda to dis credit men bants is made capital of by every small onerator capable of carry ins a satchel and talking loosely on 'save your dollars by buying direct.' It will go further unless merchants vvake up to the nibble and quibble ot such compe tit ion.
