Estimates of Their Size by a Leading German Authority ' A German periodical, "Stahl , und Eisen" ("Steel and Iron"), has been collecting figures indicating the quan tity of coal still left in the world. Its figures favor Germany perhaps un dulyand some of them must be to a certain extent guesswork. Still, the prominence of the paper in question lends to its opinions a value that should not be underrated. "Stahl and Eisen' puts Germany's own deposits at 280,000,000,000 tons, which, with the present consumption, will suffice for a couple of thousand years, and, making allowance for an increasing demand, in any case should last till the year 3000. Added to this, the paper states that there is some reason to believe that the coal deposits of Germany have been underestimated, and that they may be put at as much as 415 millards of tons. The. other European powers, in the opinion of the paper, are much less favorably sit uated. Thus the coal deposits Qf Great Britain and Ireland amount to only about half of those of Germany, or about 193,000,000,000 tons, and, as the annual consumption is twice as big as that of Germany, England may have Advertisements of farms for sale, farms to rent, or farms to exchange, ONLY TWO CENTS A WORD.

Have Smutless Grain , Of all the farmers' foes smut Is the easiest one to conquer in fact, no fanner need lose a dollar from smutty grain. If any facts in regard to grain have been conclusively proved, they are that: Smut is the product of a germ that is planted with the seed. That seeds upon which the smut germs have been destroyed will not grow a smutty crop. That wheat, corn, oats or barley treated with a solution of Formal dehyde will be freed from every trace of the smut germ. , Two points, however, must be observed: the Formaldehyde must be of a full-strength, commercially pure grade, and all the grain must come in contact with the solution. In the case of our Formaldehyde (the exact grade used at the Experiment Station), one pound added to forty-five gallons of water will be sufficient for from seventy-five to eighty bushels of wheat or corn or forty to sixty bushels of oats or barley. It costs 33 cents a pound. Is it worth ONE-HALF CENT A BUSHEL to free your seed from smut? Rather, you can afford to take chances when you can insure a smut free crop for such an insignificant sum. ;' ' '' ' -: SCAB ON POTATOES What we have said about smut on grain applies equally well to potato scab and the, use of Formaldehyde as suggested is a positive remedy for scab it never fails when a good grade of Formaldehyde is used. Let us furnish our pure, fresh and full-strength Formaldehyde and you can depend upon results we guarantee it to be the best grade useJ for this purpose. RIGGS PHARMACY 1 321 O Street, Lincoln, Nebraska. exhausted her supplies in some 350 years. As regards the other countries the coal deposits of Belgium are estimated to contain 23 millards of tons, those of f ranee 19 millards, those of Austria 17 millards, and those of Russia about 40 millards tons. The whole makes an aggregate for Europe of about 700 millards of tons of coal. t The coal de posits of North America are estimated to contain nearly as much as those of Europe, or 681 millards tons, but even this gigantic figure is completely dwarfed by Asia's wealth of coal, as to which it Is at present impossible to make an even approximate esti mate. China, more especially, seems to possess inexhaustible supplies, and a German scientist has put the coal deposits of the province of Shan-Si, China, alone, at 1,200,000,000,000 tons. Siberia and the island of Saghalien also contain vast coal deposits, and altogether the paper does not see any cause of alarm as to a universal coal famine. , v CONUNDRUMS When are two apples alike?
