Model "B" Disc Harrow
Makes a better seed bed ! Why? Because in addition to having a lever with
which each gang can be angled, it has a pivoted double yoke which is controlled in
its up and down movement by a third lever ahd held to its work by a long, flexible
spring. This is an exclusive John Deere patented feature. All Deere disc blades
are made of the highest quality of steel. They are carefully polished, clear to the
hub. They are ground to a sharp cutting edge and beveled back one and one-half
inches on Convex side.
Every effort is made to make the Model "B" Harrow better instead of cheaper
and even then considering its superior construction it is as low in price to you as
the prye of cheaper constructed harrows.

Why Is a Pessimist?
That's easy. A Pessimist is just
because he can't help it. He was
born some Friday the 13th—in the
dark o' the moon, with a black cat
sitting on the doorstep.
He was fed castor oil when he
cried for sugar, made to wear tight
shoes when he wanted to go fishing
barefoot, and his whole boyhood
made a hard case of "when a feller
needs a friend."
He gives girls a good time and
other fellows marry them. He
tries to join fraternal lodges and
the loving brothers tutn him down.
He works hard for promotion and
more pay and gets fired. He misses
trains by half a minute and not an
other one for six hours. He gets
knocked down by taxis and locked
up by policemen—on suspicion.
If there's anything doing in the
epidemic line he's a charter mem
ber. If he had been anything but
a Pessimist he would have died of
the first attack, but he is spared
time and time again so that he may
sample all the newest things in
(itis) and (osis) as they are put on
the market. ,
He is the joy of the encyclopedia
peddler, and the thrice blessed of
the stock certificate enthusiast;
not because he is an easy m&rk, but
becuse he was fated to be in the
right mood at the wrong time.
With all these handicaps if he was
n't a Pessimist he would be a Hypo
crite—which is worse yet.
The Pessimist is deserving of all
8ympahthy and gets it—not.—"Sel

Our enterprising street commis
sioner started the road drag on the
streets of the town the first of the
week. There was some difference
of opinion among a very few bf the
wise men of the town as to whether
the streets were too dry or too wet
to drag. The matter hasn't been
definitely settled yet. However, in
our humble opinion the streets and
roads are never too wet nor *too dry
to drag, and whoever is driving the
team that drags the roads is doing
the Lord's work. So long as the
town and surrounding country is
cursed with dirt roads some of the
blasphemy can be eliminated by
smoothing over the rough places
with a good old drag. If the streets
of the town are dragged four or five
times this spring they will be in
passable condition during a great
er part of the dry season.
The merchant who is a town build
er is the advertiser. The merchant
who advertises not only brings
trade to his store but he brings
trade to the town.
An organization of an assocation
opposed to National Prohibition is
being formed in New York and is
expected to gain a foothold in
every state in the Union. Nearly
a million people have applied for
membership. The main point at
issue, according to leaders of the
organization, is that National Pro
hibition by constitutional amend
ment interferes with the principle
of "personal rights and liberties."
Idaho legislated in favor of state
wide prohibition a number of years
ago and it is safe to say that after
this trial period it would - be an
utter impossibility to vote the state
wet again. A large majority of men
who would vote to have the country
remain wet haven't very sound
princples to start with, so there
would be nothing wrong in the
country taking a hand to abolish an
evil that only tends to further
weaken their characters. Any piece
of legislation that can bring with it
such an untold amount of good as
the National Prohibition Amend
ment won't cause us any sufferings
from the standpoint of interfering
with our "personal rights and lib
Elisher—he's our hired man—
Allows there ain't no better plan
Of circumventin' woes an' cares,
Than smilin' when y' come down
stairs; '
An' lives up to it, square an' blunt,
Like general run of preachers won't!
Eliaher smiles an' fore you know
The rest of us is smilin' so
Ketch in'-like it is! My law,
It Hits from him to me an' maw,
An' then across to Uncle Dri •
Or Mairy Ellen mebbe; why,
I've seen it set the pup
A-waggin' fore the sun was up!
Then bimeby, as like as not,
Some man will pass that's mebbe
A mortgage that his crops can't
But like enough the man will ketch
Elisher's smile an' drop his frown
Ah' tote the smile away to town.
An' peddle it where, bein' wus^.
The people need it more than us!
Tne feller at the griss-mill gits
The spirit of the smile—it flits
Across an' through the blacksmith's
An' breezes through the general
Then out again, an' wreaths, dog
Whatever face it fastens on!—
Because Elisher's smile is jis'
As ketchin' as the pink-eye is!
An' then the feller brings it back
At night along the back-urds track,
An' scatters it on either side
The Country Road, both far an'
Until, by time when we get in
From work, the smile is back agin'!
Back home agin'!— an' seems t'
Elisher for his cheerfulness.
"Because you smiled," it seems to
"The world has had a holiday."
