Mention advertising to the old-time farmer and he thinks of large display type announcements more or less ex pensively illustrated. But modern farmers have found scores of ways by which they can attract buyers for their products. The suggestions offered herewith are designed particularly for the farmer who Is In a position to sup ply a given grade of goods In sufficient quantities to meet a stable demand. Butter, eggs, live nnd dressed poultry, dressed meat, home-rendered lard, sau sage, fruit and vegetables are among the commodities the sales of which can be bettered by some form of farm ad vertising. There are many means of direct ap peal to buyers which are made par ticularly profitable by the tremendous Increase In auto travel. Today that farm Is remote Indeed which is not passed many times a week by town or city motorists, the majority of whom are possible customers for the farmer. Consequently he must look well to the appearance of his place. Perhaps un sightly features of which he is not con scious exist, but the passerby, keen to discern these signs of laxness, hesi tate« to purchase at such a farm. Uses for Bulletin Boards. A bulletin board near the front gate is a big asset. If carefully prepared. In addition to the name of the farm or the farm owner, it should state In sim ple, large type the kinds of produce for sale and the prices. Some farmers have found supplementary notices, placed at a proper distance on either side of the main bulletin board, very valuable In calling attention to the lat ter. Suggested wording for these fol lows: FAIR VALLEY FARM Read Marketing Bulletin Ahead. There are various ways in which the farm name can be displayed to the owner's financial advantage. Any farm will be better remembered by passing strangers If its name appears in neat lettering over or beside the main en trance or across the face of a barn. The farmer who possesses an auto truck—and he Is legion these days—is overlooking a splendid advertising op portunity If he does not hnve the name of his farm and his special products neatly lettered on the side of his vehicle. Then every trip to town Is a reminder to hundreds, perhaps thou sands, of people that the owner Is still BENEFITS OBTAINED FROM BETTER SIRES Farmer Increases Products and Receives More Money. Crusade Launched by Department of Agriculture Will Eventually Result In Reducing Cost of Living to Consumer. (Prepared by the United States Depart ment of Agriculture.) The definition of the term "pure bred sires" is written in one word— "economy." There are many defini tions, many of them learned and long, that might'be written, but the breeding experts of the United States depart ment of agriculture, when they met to launch the state and national crusade for "Better Sires—Better Stock,", agreed that the primary meaning of It is economy. The scrub hog requires a certain number of bushels of corn to make 200 pounds of pork. The pure-bred or high grade hog takes the same number of bushels of corn and makes 300 pounds of pork. The pure-bred or high-grade cow makes three gallons of milk out of the same quantity of silage that the scrub cow uses to make a galion and i half of miik. These figures are not meant to be scientifically exact, of •ourse, but merely to illustrate the principle. The result is that the farm er gets more pounds of salable prod uct out of Ms' feed when he uses pure bred sires at the head of Ms herds and flocks. He gets more money and his family lives better. But something else happens. When he sells more pounds of a better class of meat or more gallons of rich milk he feeds the city family better than he did when he 'on the map." One dairy farmer who built up a large retail trade not only carried on his vehicles the name of his farm, but made all his trucks and wagons even more distinctive by paint Hig them a dark yellow. Letterheads a Help. Printed letterheads are a real asset for the farmer who Is selling to either wholesale or retail trade. The follow ing form Is suggestive: FAIR VALLEY FARM BUTTER, EGGS, DRESSED POULTRY, BY PARCEL POST FROM THE FARM TO YOU. BLAND, MD.19.. Many farmers who handle consid erable quantities of produce find It profitable to use distinctive, printed wrappers. Another simple means of advertising is neatly printed gummed labels for use on the outside of pack ages sent by parcel post or express. Advertisements in local or metropoli tan papers should be short and should give a description of the goods with the prices, and the name and address of the person advertising. In some cities the Sunday edition gives better results than the dally edition. What Advertiser Should Know. The person who advertises must of fer a product that is wanted by the persons who read the paper at the time the product is advertised, in the places where the paper has a circula tion. In other words, he must know what to advertise, when to advertise, and where to advertise. The follow ing are suggested forms for parcel post classified advertising; James J. Jameson, Proprietor Fresh eggs, direct from the farm. Send — 1 for three dozen delivered by par cel post, prepaid. Fair View Farm, Blank, Va. Butter, direct from dairy. Fresh, clean, for two pounds, delivered postpaid by parcel post. Fair View Farm, Blank, Va. Cherries from the tree to you by pre paid parcel post. Picked the day they cents for —.— - quarts to Fair View Farm, Blank, Va. Typical of the small number of farm ers who have entered the field of na tional advertising is one in a middle western state, who has built up a coun try-wide trade in his special brand of liome-made sausage by using the ad vertising columns of publications of national circulation, supplemented by cleverly prepared pamphlets and the use of distinctive wrappers. and sweet. Send are mailed. Send kept scrub stock. The final result of pure-bred sires is that the farmer makes more money nnd the city family gets more and better food, probably at lower prices. The crusade, the experts say, eventu ally will tend to result in reducing the cost of living to the consumer without taking the difference out of the pocket of the producer. For that reason, they point out, the city man has a definite money Interest in the better sires cru sade. While he can hardly be expect ed to put the same amount of effort into it that the live stock breeder should, he is expected to give encour agement and aid to the program when ever the opportunity offers. And there ■will be no lack of opportunity, partic ularly in the smaller cities and towns where the farmers are in close con tact with the city business men. f-rfffl - Where is yonr binder? * * • Get the stables ready for winter. • • « Save some clover seed this season. * * * Comb honey should be removed from hive as soon as capped, • • • There is no money in working team Or man in the rain. • • e Use the best seed obtainable; poor seed means low yields. • « Trace chains and short tugs are a happy farm combination. • • • Don't waste and burn the straw.

Russians Alleged to be Soviet Propa Seized in First Raids Planned to Rid Country of Anarchy. gandists are of New York.—A nation-wide raid on anarchists began hero on October 7. Agents of the department of justice, led by William J.

It was reported that these persons, who were particularly sought, had been caught. They were taken to police headquarters. The raids, taking place on the eve of widely advertised celebrations of the second anniversary of the estab lishment of the soviet government in Russia, were said to have nipped in the bud a country-wide plot openly to defy governmental authorities. This has been advocated, it was said, for ■everal weeks by combined radical elements, the I. W. W., anarchist and Russian agitators. Pamphlets and other literature to this effect are now in possession of the department of justice, It was said. Country-wide attempts to organize German brunches of the Industrial Workers of the World have been dis closed by the police. SENATE ADOPTS PREAMBLE. First Step Toward Qualification of Peace Pact is Taken. Washington.—The first affirmative step toward qualification of the peace treaty was taken on Friday by the senate after administration leaders with the backing of President Wilson had reaffirmed their intention of vot ing against ratification if the tions drawn by the senate majority are adopted. The initial test of strength on the reservation program of the foreign lations committee found the Republi cans almost solidly united behind it, the group of mild reservationists who helped kill the committee's ments and the irreconcilable group of treaty foes standing together for the first time since the long treaty fight began. reserva re amend By a vote of 48 to 40 the senate approved, after all efforts to amend it had failed, the committee's preamble to the reservation group, requiring that to make the treaty binding at least three of the four great must accept the senate qualifications.

With Water wings were invented by a Ma ori maiden hundreds of , „ Years before the British conquered these New Zeal and natives. She used some gourds which she lashed together with strands of flax, putting the lashing under her chest, with a gourd behind each arm. Thus equipped, she swam four miles to meet her lover, who was not in fav or with her father. The romantic story is a pretty one. Tutanekai's mother was the beauti ful Rangl-uru, wife of Whakane-kal papa, the great chief of the Ngati w ha kaue tribe, home wrecker, the soft-spoken glib tongued Tu-wliare-toa, who had per suaded Rangi-uru to run away with blm. Later she repented and returned to her husband, who forgave her. He took her child into the family and moved to another neighborhood, so that the family would escape gossip. In this district Tutanekal grew into an Apollo of manhood and a regular Solomon in wisdom, but the stigma of his birth followed him. He fell In love with IIJne-Moa, but her father re fused hts consent to the marriage. The lovers were kept apart, while the girl's father remained obdurate. Finally, in desperation, Hine-Moa planned to make the four-mile swim to his island from Rotorua, and Just before plung ing into the water decided to make the water wings as an extra safety precaution, although she was an ex pert swimmer. His father was a ON TRACK OF VAST TREASURE Probability Circumstances Indicate That Vast Hoards of the Mongol» Has Been Discovered. Whether Asia's most famous treas ure-hoard, the concealed valuables of the Mongols, has been found, is still a mystery to those who have dreamed of finding the precious relics of kings and hidden somewhere in the emperors ruins of the cities of eentrnl Asia. Re cent reports that some of the jewels and goldwork of the Mongols have reached India confirm the belief that the treasure-hoard has been ransacked ât last. Five hundred years ago the desert was green and temples and luxurious palaces adorned central and southern Asia, often called the "tomb of lost millions." The Mongols, the most for midable of the tribes at that time, rav aged eastern and central Europe la the thirteenth century, and carried their loot with them. With the pas sage of the tribe the great secret to explorers has been the place of their hidden treasure. in Yar Some years ago two men knnd sold some relics of ancient Asian workmanship, and it is believed they had come upon the tomb of the treas - .
