Ryagate Reporter: The thresher men of the Ryegate country have mu las yet got fairly started in the tlm sh ing of grain, but reports which are so far gathered from them are very fiat -ering indeed. There has not been less than is bushels to the acre re ported and it is said that it has gone over thirty. The most important, tiling is that the grade of the grata is par (excellence: the kernels are large and plump and much of It is weighing from three to five pounds heavy. It to get an intelligent average to the is too early in the game as yet acre of what the Ryegate country will produce this year. There has not been much threshing done and in most Instances what has been done has j seemed to be from the poor spots or from land which the farmers them selves say was poorly put lu. There is a good deal of "stubbled in" «train and th,s i8 not expected to produoe is much. It does another thing, and one ... ... , that is detrimental to the farmer and that Is it reduces the average yield; : therefore keeps down the advance in price of his land. Some of the farm ers claim that it is just as profitable in the long run to let land lay idle as It is to put it to crop poorly. A good deal of seeding has beea done in these parts and the farmers are becoming of the opinion that seed cannot be gotten Into the ground any , too early for the best results. Many 4; of them have had two and three years j H ovnnriannA In Unntana to Inir ann 1 experience In Montana farming and are learning that early seeding Is the ! thing for this country, and makes the ; surest crop. To do this many of them will be compelled to stack their grain in order to get out of the way, as the + threshers cannot get to all of them early enough to thresh out of the shock. 1 few !

TRAFFIC IN HUMAN FLESH COMMON IN PHILLIPPINE8 Special Commissioner Reporte That Children ar« 8o||| into Slavery and and Slave Agents Send Men into Interior to Capture Victims. WASHINGTON, Aug. 25. Slavery in the full meaning of the word exists thruout the PhillippineB according to a special report Commissioner Dean Worcester has made to the insular government. It has not been received by the war department, but copies are in the hands of other officials. Filipinos in parts of the islands com monly capture children and sell them into slavery for profit. Some children have been enticed from their homes by slave agents on promises of schol arships in schools and some of those, in an instance which Mr. Worcester re ports in detail, were sold and others ^ armed ou t f°v money. He cites the 8se °* a 13-year-old girl bought for some P*® 8 an *t a cloak. The supreme court of the islands re leased the slave trader on the ground that no crime had been committed be cause no physical force had been used. This one case, Mr. Worcester said, has blocked other slavery prosecu tions. The Phillippine assembly has blocked laws for the suppression of the traffic, he says, because many of its members come from province.}, where slavery flourishes. One of his reports on the traffic lies tabled in the Phillippine assembly. Mr. Worcetser declares he had great difficulty in getting facts of slave cases and intimates that reports were i ... nut I j i it sei » . • nun withheld by the offices of the Pbil lippine constabulary. He cites the case of a Phillippine assemblyman caught redhanded owning a slave girl in Manila and says; "I could obtain conclusive evidence of a hundred, a thousand, ten thousand of them, but why multiply cases? It is simply a case of time and work." He charges that Phillippine assem blymen maintain peonage on their farms. BIG PRIZES FOR BIGPOTATOES Montana State Fair Offers large Amount tor Best Tubers.

EDISON, the wizard of inventors, says, "The hone is the poorest motor ever built." When you stop to think of it, the hone is about the most costly and wasteful thing at work for a farmer. At best his work ing time averages only about six houn a day, eighteen houn he rests, yet he eats all year round, working or idle. He eats ten pounds for every hour he works. One acre out of every five plowed, goes to feed the hone. The machine has taken his place. He can not match the tractor. Thus far, wherever an I H C Oil Tractor has been set to work on a farm, no machine has taken the place of so many hones, or done so much laborious work with so large a saving of time and money. I H C tractors have revo lutionized farming. You have need of one. Whether you use it for pulling field ma chines, hauling your produce, threshing, cut ting ensilage, baling hay, or anything else, the I H C tractor will stand up to the work. In simplicity and strength of construction, ease of operation, durability, and all-around econ omy, you cannot find the equal of I H C trao tors. They are made in all styles and in 6-12, 7-i 5 , 10-20, 12-2S, 15-30, 25-^5, and 3060-home power. You will find one just the right size for your farm. The I H C engine line also in cludes general purpose engines, ranging from 1 to 50-horse power and operating on low and high grade fuel oils, gas and alcohol.
