Hare a Secret Pnifen* for Preserv ing I'.SK" The Wilbur Sentinel recently con tained the following account of the opening up of some eggs that were packed last spring: Peter Christensen and H. M. Hasten opened up their packing of April eg?.-*, Monday, and applied every test possi ible, as did their friends, and found them to be as fresh and wholesome as the day they were layed. These gen tlemen have 20,000 dozen packed away, which are being kept fresh by the secret process which they, aloue. are the proprieters of. These eggs will be sold when the winter market reaches a figure to suit the packers, and they will ! no doubt realize handsomely for their I labors, as the. most of their stock in tradfa has been purchased on a spring and summer market. In speaking of their undertaking. Mr. Christensen said: ''Twenty thousand dozen eggs Is not near enough to suit us. We would like to have several times that many packed away. Next seasjn we expect 1.0 enlarge the capacity of our plant to 100,000 dozen. We have bought all the eggs coming to Wilbur this season that we could secure, besides handling the ! surplus from the Govan. Almlra and I Hartline markets. When we opened our first packing of April eggs Monday we cooked samples of them in several different ways and ate some raw. and, though they have passed through a long, hot summer and been packed away for eight months, they were, in every case. as fresh as the day they were delivered to us. Samples were also given out to many of our friend-.. who found no fault whatever with I them." Tenting I iii in-— by Piano Pointing to a piano that was standing in the locomotive round house of the Missouri Pacific railroad-near. Kansas I City, an English visitor remarked: "Ah. I see your road supplies you with musical entertainment." ''Guess not," replied il'e foreman. "That piano is for testing the en gines." TheEnglishmaa^lhought it a joke.but when a uniformed pianist struck a key note which harmonized with the noise of vibration in each part of the locomo tive, as it was tested, lie understood that there could be no flaw* or cracks jin the engine. He was informed that I if the noise of the locomotive made a discord with the musical note the loco motive would thus be proved defective. The method has been discovered to be more accurate than the old way of ham mering each part. Those Terrible Cowboy* The following is a Hungarian news paper account of things political in the United States: Theodore Roosevelt, the American president, has a new rival for the presi dency. There is about to be an election in the United Slates and Mark Ilanna, a powerful man, will oppose him. It is difficult to understand clearly the American conditions in this country, but we learn upon Investigation that before he became president, Roosevelt was a cowboy, and the cowboys, being the dominant part) in the United CHRISTMAS GREETINGS THE newest and most varied line of Holiday Goods ever brought to Leavenworth is now on display in the Postofflce Building.

After Roosevelt's election | the cowboys demanded the best offices; in Hiding two members of the Cabinet. but Roosevelt ignored their demands. I so they liave decided to avenge them :selves and defeat him for reelection. The cowboys wield a tremendous power in tiie United States west of New York city and they have offered the presidency to Hanna. Hanna has j never been a cowboy, but, being ambi tious, he has accepted the nomination, and, it is thought, will be elected. We learn that Hanna will maku his cam paign on a wild muMang.

Mr. King is advertis | in;; agent for the Moline Plow Co., of ; Illinois. I Farmer .Tones was a behind-time man. A trailer trom morn till night. ! His pasture fences were always down— His barn never «nug and tight. He worked as hard as neighbor Smith. Who got spick, and span and rich, ! But it didn't seem to count for much— And this was the why uf which: Between us, Smith was a wise old fox, And used both head and hand. He took advantage ol moJern ways And got the most from his land. No out-of-date tools were on his place* No horse-killing outfits there. j The best to be had was none to good, As Ion;: as the price was fair. ]'he <;ia<liilor cut the stalks up fine- Did it with hardly a jar. 1 It has the proper motion to cut. And is the lightest by far. ! He plowed with the Best I'.ver Gang, ( \r lather, his boy did that. While he rode the Economy disk And crushed the clods out Hat. ! His corn was planted with Three-in-oue lHill drop, drill drop or drill); i Kernels came out in numbers he chose, Checked for plowing at will. 1 For cultivation he used the Twins, Thus saving a horse and man. And what Smith did with these ma chines Is a cinch that any man can. And so he went clear through the big line, From cutter to sub-soil plow; Buying whatever hi* work required— His motto was "do it now." This is the way that Smith beat Jones, Without v calloused hand: Ami here is a tip for you my friend: ■■r.-e tools of the Dutchman brand." . . Dayton, Ohio.

The state ments just issued by the two national banks show total deposits of t2,ili). --679 05. Of this sum the First National bank has $773,304.52; the Colfax Na tional, sucee-sor to the Second National; has $1,341,474.53. The population of Colfax was 2420 i when the assessment teas made last spring, and a census was taken by tk* : Held deputy assessor. It is now esti mated at 2500. This gives bank depos its of $845.47 for each man, woman and child in Colfax. It Is claimed here that no other town in the United States, sit uated in an exclusively agricultural disl met, makes such a showing. It ha* long been claimed that Colfax is the richest town per capita in the state. This statement seems to be borne out by the bank deposits now held here. A considerable portion of the 1904 wheat crop, estimated at from 15 to 90 per cent, is still held by the farmer*, and if this were sold practically all til it in I this section would go to swell the bank deposits. . ... One of the largest oranges ever grown in California measured eighteen inches around and weighed two and one-half pounds. It was of the seed variety. Does It Pay to Advertise I Last year over one billion dollar* was paid out for advertising in the United States, and yet gome gourd j headed storekeeper will say "it don't pay," or. ''I can't afford it." Who does the largest business In every town and city in the United States? The largest advertiser. There is not an exception to this rule. Does anyone suppose for a moment that a man who has sCnso enough to uuild up a large and successful business - ! would spend his money in order to have ' the name of being the largest «dTer= tlser?" Oh, no. Money is too hard to | get to squander in that vain way. tint j he does the largest business in j towni because he is the largest advertiser. Somebody has gathered some careful statistics to show that one billion dol lars was spent in advertising in the United States last year. Insurance figures came to less than this. Corn figures were 9952,000.000} wheat, $443,000,000; cotton,WoO,OOd,OOOi coal $210,000,000; hay, $556,000,000; pig iron, $91,000,000. In New York City and Brooklyn the very largest department stores ex | pended $2,000,000 among themselves ill i advertising 1, ranging from John Waoa' maker with $500,000, Slegel, Cooper company $400,000, and It. H. Macy $300,000 to The Arnold-Constable com pany $35,000. And the larger and more extrava gant grow the figures the more simple grows the answer to the old time ques tion, "does advertising —rtctallerf and Advertiser.
