The farmers of Lewiston valley are just beginning the harvest of the greatest crop in the history of the country. The promise of a profitable season is very flattering. A rich reward for the season of care and toil has practically arrived In years past big harvests and re munerative prices have caused dis asters to follow. The only safe method for the farmer is a conserv •tivc course. Because wheat grow ing brings a big return one year it does not follow that the tesult will be perpetuated. The farmer is too apt to be influenced to divest all ol his euergies to the one branch of his business by the big returns of one year. The Lewiston valley has more examples of profitable farming than any other community in the northwest. There have been here some examples of disaster. The large number of successful faimers hare all been conservative students of local conditions. They have iralcd the certainty of the business when intelligently pur sued. There is more ptofit in farm ing in the Lewiston valley than in other sections of the country, be cause a good yield can be regularly grown and harvested at a smaller cost than in auy other section of the United States that is devoted to wheat as a general crop. This uniform yield is the result, how ever, of good farming and the obser vance of peculiar conditions of soil and climate. The disasters that have attended the wheat farmers have, on the other hand, been due geuerally to the disregard of local conditions. In some instances very large yields and large profits have l»een gained from haphazard methods. The same conditions are observable in all branches of business. Often reckless deals return great profits; but only couservative methods are safe. Stimulated by success the farmer is often impelled to do poor work and to sow out of season, and then invite disaster. The only safe bus iness method is the one that pro duces regular crops, even under unfavorable conditions. The farmer who becomes excited and neglects his horses, his cows, his hogs, his chickens, his hay, his Iruit and his vegetables for exclu sive wheat culture is iu danger of loss. The farmer, as other busi ness men, should avoid hazardous investments, su:h as exclusive crops planted as is uecessary, per force of conditions, in badly tilled grounds, and out of season. The wise farmer will not be di verted fiom his safe method of crop diversion by the excitemeut caused by one year of extraordinary pro fits iu wheat culture, even in the Lewiston valley.—Newton Hibhs, in the Teller of June 22. Seeing Things. The stock in trade of democratic argument is "pity the woes of the poor farmer." In the whole cate gory of American industries noth ing is left to illustrate a tale of woe but the low price of wheat and the democratic bunco steerer is harping upon that alone, hoping to delude the farmers of the conn try. The farmer is asked to ig nore the fact that flax and corn, and oats and hay are a good price and easily marketed; that cattle and bogs and sheep are at top notch prices and the farmer is making money raising and selling them. He is asked to ignore the fact that money is easier and mar kets better. He must close his eyes to this and open them only to visious of the trust octopus. But the farmers of the country are seeing things, not bugaboos, but realities. There is no depress ion in the country as there was in 1893-6. If wheat happens to be low, flax is not, but on the other hand the highest price ever known. Cattle are at a high price, and hogs, sheep, oats and hay were never in 1 etter demand or more easily marketed. The condition that confronts the farmer is better than the theory which the spell binder and the space writer ad vance to frighten him. "A bird iu hand iu hand is worth two in the bush" is a wise old saw, yet it is very applicable to present con ditions. The Teller quotes again today from Mr. Ilibbs, the farmer's Iriend, an admirable, excellent ar ticle setting out the conditions in the Lewiston valley last June. There is no calamity wail about this; it is replete with facts of ex isting conditions with a word ol good adv.ee. Mr. Hibbs asks the farmer not to get excited and neg lect his horses, his cows, his hogs, his chickeus, his hay. his fruit, his vegetables for exclusive wheat cul ture. The Teller now, in be half of the farmer, would like to thank Mr. Hibhs and say that they have profited by his advice and are not excited, but renumber the horses and cows and chickens aud vegetables and fruit, for there is danger sometimes in excessive wheat culture, as there is in ex eessive wheat arguments.
