The farmer will this year have more money to spend and more to invest than he ever had before out of his year's work. Ddrura wheat was introduced into this county in the years 1899-1902 by the department, at a fir?t cost of $10,000. This year's crop is worth $30,000,000 more than tw'ce the annual cost of the entire department; 3.000,000 acres are now used, much of it land formerly valueless, "the ( home of the prairie dog and the cac- ( tus." Root Snpar. The beet sugar Industry has grown very rapidly during the past 15 years. In 1892 the beet sugar factories turned out 13,460 short tons of re-, fined sugar; in 1897. five years later. 45.246 tons; in 1902. at the end of another five-year period, 218,405 tons: and in 1907 the estimated pro duct reached 500,000 tons. So prof-, itahle has the trowing of sugar beets , proven that In many western Mates sugar beet lands are rapidly Increas ing In value. Alfalfa. Alfalfa Is a wonderful plant for producing wealth. It not only yields several cuttings of most nutritious hay during a season, but actually en riches the ground on which It grows by taking nitrogen from the air. The department and the state experiment stations have done much to promote the extension of alfalfa growing. While production is yet confined mainly to the great west, this forage plant Ms yearly gaining a more sub vandal foothold In the central and southern states. The total crop of alfalfa hay In 1907 Is estimated to be worth $100,000,000. Irrigation. Irrigation is yet confined al most entirely to the arid or seml arld regions of the west and the rice lands of the gulf coast, but in time It will doubtless be practiced largely In the more humid regions jof the country as It Is In similar regions of the old world. The Irrigated area now under cultivation In this coun try is 11,000,000 acres, and the crops grown on t'.is area In 1907 were worth not less than $175,000,000. Next year. If present prices are maintain ed, the products of Irrigation fawning should be worth $250,000,000. Corn Crop. Speaking of the chief crop, the secretary says that corn ranks first In Importance. Besides Its large use as a human food, as a live-stock feed, "the starch of corn becomes the fat of the "nog and the finish of the steer." thus becoming a great factor Jn the production of meats and meat products for export. While not as large as that of 1906, the value of the corn crop of 1908 Is greater and Is 26 per cent above the average val ue of the crops of the preceding five years. . He adds that eight such crops as that of 1907 would pay for duplicating every mile of steam rail road In the United States, with ter minals, rolling stock and all proper ty, Cotton Crop. In value the cotton crop of 1907, estimated to be from $650,000,000 to $675,000,000, takes the third place, If In the final estimates It does not displace hay for second rank. The commercial expectations are that the crop will be found to be the third one In size ever raised, and percep tibly larger than the average crop of the previous Tve years. Though its farm value Is probably a little be low that of last year's crop, In oth er respects It will be the most valu able cotton crop ever raised In this country, and 7 per cent above the av erage farm value of the cropsof the previous five years. Outside of the British East Indies, the production of cotton In the Brit ish colonies, possessions, and protec torates was 7,553 bales of 500 pounds gross weight In 1904 and 10.016 bales In 1905. In the French colonies, ex cept French India and Indo-Chlna, 400 bales were produced In 1904; In the German colonies, 1500 bales In 1905. Wheat Crop. The wheat crop of 1907 Is 625,576, 000 bushels, 5 per cent less than the average quantity for the f.'ve pre ceding years. But the value Is about $500,000,000, of 5 1-2 per cent more than the average, although the crops of 1901, 1902 and 1905 had each a slightly higher value than that of this year. Sugar) Molasses and Simp. The farm value of sugar beets, su gar beets, sug&r cane, sorghum cane and molasses and sirup made on the farm Is $64,000,000. Sugar made in sugar mills (including raw cane su gar) amounts to 889,000 short tons, worth $73,000,000. Other products of the sngar mills bring the value up to $95,000,000; three-fourths of this is farm value. Other Oops. The oat crop 741,521,000 bushels Is 19 per cent below the five-year average, but the value Is 26 per cent above the average, or $360,000,000. Potatoes 292,427.000 bushels are 2 per cent above the average; the value Is $190,000,000, or 26 per cent above the average. Barley also Is 2 per cent above the average In quantity, while the value Is extraordinary, about 85 per cent above the average. The quantity Is 147,192,000 bushels, the value $116, 000,000. Tobacco declined to 645,213,000 pounds, 11 per cent below the aver age in quantity, with a value of $67, ,000,000, or V, per cent above the average. The crop Is smaller thaji for many years. The flaxseed crop Is 25,420,000 bushels, worth $26,000,000; the quantity Is 5 per cent below and the value 3 per cent above the five-year average. Rye produced 331,566.000 bushels, with a value of $23,000,000; a quan tity 4 per cent above the average and a value 29 per cent above. Rice produced a record crop of 963,540,000 pounds of rough rice, or 98 per cent above the average for the three preceding years. The farm value is $19,600,000, a gain of 36 per cent over the average. The country now exports more rice than It Im ports, owing to better varieties which the department has helped the grow er to secure from the orient. . Buckwheat produced 13,911,000 bushels, worth $10,000,000; a quan tity 4.7 per cent below, and a value 14 per cent above the first year av erage. Hops produced 48,330,000 pounds, worth $5,000,000. The quantity Is 4.6 per cent below the average, while the value is 29 per cent below. An Cereals. The seven cereal crops . produced 4,135,000,000 bushels, showing a loss of 214,000,000 bushels, or 5 per cent below the five year average, the lss being chiefly due to oats. The total value Is $2,378,000,000; th's exceeds 1906 by $296,000,000 and Is 23 per cent above the average. Wealth Production of Fiimis. The value of. the total farm pro Auctions in 1907 exceeded that of 1906, which was far above any pre ceding year. The total value for 1907 Is $7,412,000,000, an amount 10 per cent greater than the total for 190e, 17 per cent greater than that of 1903, 20 per cent greater than that of 1904, 25 per cent greater than that for 1903, and 67 per cent above the total value for 1899. If we let 100 represent the total value for 1899, the value for 1903 would be repre sented by 125; that for 1904 by 131: for 1905 by 134; for.. 1906 by 143; and the total value for 1907 by 157. The farmer depends not alone on his field crops. He produces meat animals; he keeps dairy cows; he raises shep for mutton and wool ho raises horses and mules; he keeps poultry. The animals sold . from farms and those slaughtered on them in 1007 were worth about $1,270,000 or nearly twice as much as the cot ton crop. A Hard Debt to Pay. "I owe a debt of gratitude that can never b paid off," writes G. S. Clark, jf Westfleld, Iowa, "for my rescue from death, by Dr. King's New Dis covery. Both lungs were so seriously ttfected that death seemed Imminent, when I commenced taking New Dl' covery. The ominous dry, hacking cough quit before the first bottle was used, and two more bottles made a complete cure." Nothing has ever equaled New Discovery for coughs, colds and all throat and lung com plaints. Guaranteed by Tallman A Co., druglsts. 50c and $11.00. Trial bottle free. Mark Twain's Birthday. New York, Nov. 30. In excellent spirits and looking the picture of health, Mark Twain celebrated his seventy-second birthday today sur rounded by friends and admirers. The veteran humorist does not intend to grow old, so he says. He enjoys more leisure than he did In his younger days, but he asserts that he never would have worked If he could have lived without It. After having lost the large financial returns from his earlier career as a writer and lec turer through the failure of the pub lishing house In which he was lnte- ested, Mr, Clemens has lived to dis charge all of his obligations and to accumulate another tidy fortune.

Queen Alexandra's 83rd Blrtlulay, London, Nov. 30. Many presents and messages of congratulations are arriving at Sandarlngham In antici pation of the , birthday of Queen Alexandra, who was born December 1, 1844. The anniversary will be marked by a family reunion. De spite her slxtythree years and the fact that she has n'ne grand children, the queen still retains her youthful beauty In a most remarkable degree.

ALLEN MILLER WRITES OE RICH INTERIOR SECTION Ovit 2,100,000 Acreg of Land Under Irrigation Tributary to" Sniike River HIirlieNt Land Prices In the Wext Prevail 1'nder the Irrigation Pro ject of Tills Section. In renlv to a letter from F. O. Younflr of Eugene, who Is to address the Rivers and Harbors congress, which convenes In Washington, D. C, December 4-6, on "The Valley of the Columbia," Colonel Allen Miller of Pnlse has compiled ' the following from the statistics In the office of the bureau of Immigration and sta tistics, and his knowledge of condi tions In the state; There are under irrigation In the Snake River valley, Including all Its tributaries. 2.400.500 acres of land and the canals affording water to these lands have under them about 887.000 acres uncultivated, outside of which are about 3,000,000 acres susceptible of Irrigation If water could be procured. In the northern nart of the state or Idaho there are three counties dl- rcvtlv tributary to the Snake river, viz.; Idaho, Ness Perce and Latah, which have already In cultivation 1.270,000 acres. These counties will have a wheat surplus this year of 7, 000.000 bushels, besides other grains and will market at least 15,000 head of cattte and 100,000 head of swine. These counties have sufficient pre cipitation to produce crops without Irrigation. In addition to the above quantities of land, I estimate that there are In the southern part of the state, tributary to the Snake river, between two and three million acres of fertile land which will produce one good crop of grain by the process of dry farming. I note that the above fig ures do not contain all the Irrigated and Irrigable lands of the state, as the watersheds of the Bear river are not Included. There are In the state' at the pres ent time eight companies who nre constructing Irrigation works, which win nut under water 845,000 acres. The highest figure to which In tense culture has raised the price ot land Is $1500 per acre this Is for frnlt-hearlne orchard. This price Is however, exceptional $500 an acre would be a fair average for this class of land. Sugar beet lands sell from $150 to $200 per acre. Values In the future are too remote to have any statistical value. As to the limit of navigation of the Snake river, I would say that Sho shone falls would be the head of nav igation and to reach even this point would require expensive locks.

Kidney trouble preys upon the mind, discourages and lessens ambition ; beauty, vigor and clieerluL ness toon disappear when the kidneys are out of order or dis eased. Kidney trouble has become so prevalent that it is not uncom mon for a child to be born afflicted with weak kidneys. If the child urinate! toooften, if the urine scalds the flesh, or if, when the child reaches an age when it should be able to control the passage, it is yet afflicted with bed-wetting, depend upon it, the cause of the diffi culty is kidney trouble, and the first step should be towards the treatment of these important organs. This unpleasant trouble is due to a diseased condition of the kidneys and bladder and not to a babit as most people suppose. Women as well as men are made miser able with kidney and bladder trouble, and both need the same great remedy. The mild and the immediate effect of Swamp-Root is soon realized. It is sold by druggists, in nfty cent and one-dollar size bottles.
