O WESTER N UM
He Is Perfectly Satisfied, and
Tells of His Neighbors Who
Have Done Well.
Walter Harris, formerly lived near
Julietta in Warren township, Indiana.
now lives at Hussar, Alberta. In
writing to MB home puper in Indiana,
he says that the failure is the man
who always blames the country, He
fails to see his own mistakes, has
missed his calling and is not fitted
for farming. The two seasons just
past hove been entirely different. In
1913 plenty of rain came in June and
a good crop followed, but the fall was
dry and but little snow in the winter
followed by a very dry summer, and a
short crop. Only those that had
farmed their land properly were able
to meet expenses.
For example, last year the Crow
foot Farming Company, south of
here, threshed from 1,250 acres 38,-
000 bushels of wheat. One-half section
made 2G bushels, the poorest of all.
This year on 1,350 aeres they threshed
nearly 26,000 bushels. Last year's
crop sold at 75 cents from their own
elevator. What they have sold of
this year's crop brought $1.00 at
threshing time. Eight thousand bush
els unsold would bring now around
:$1.25. The manager and part owner
was raised in Ohio and farmed in
Washington several years. He and
his wife spent last winter in Ohio
She told me a few days ago that the
climate here was much better than
A man by the name of George Clark
threshed 75 bushels of oats, 45 bush
els of barley and 35 bushels of wheat
to the acre. He had 15,000 bushels of
old oats as well as wheat and barley
in his granaries that have almost
-doubled in price. He came from
Washington, where he sold a large
tody of land around $200 that ho
bought around $3.00 per acre. He then
refers to a failure. A large company
in tbe eastern states, owning a large
farm near Hussar pays its manager
$3,000 a year. The farm has not
been a success. Probably the man
ager's fault Mr. Harris says condi
tions are not as good as could be
wished for, but on the ending of the
war good crops, with war prices, will
certainly change conditions, and it
*eems to me that the one who owns
land that will raise 100 bushels of
-oats, 75 bushels of barley or 40 bush
els of wheat is the one who "laughs
The above yields may seem exag
gerations to many, and are far above
the average, but you should remember
that the man who fails is counted in
(to make the average, and there are
Instances on record here that would
far exceed the above figures.
Nor is grain the only profitable
thing that can be raised here. There
are many fine horse ranches, some of
them stocked with cayuses and bred
to thoroughbreds, and others import
ed from the old countries. They run
on tbe range nearly all the year. The
owners put up wild hay to feed them
if the snow should get too deep for
them to get the dead grass. There
are several hundred in sight of here
most of the time. There are several
cattle ranches north of here that have
from 500 to 7,000 head of cattle. One
man I know sold $45,000 worth of fat
cattle this fall. He winters his cat
tle on farms where they have lots of
straw and water, paying 75 cents a
month per head, or if there is enough
traw to winter 400 or 500 head they
buy the straw and water and have a
man to took after the cattle.Adver

NEW HEAD OF ROTHSCHILDS
Lord Rothschild, just dead in London, Baron Edouard's mother being Lord
Rothschild's sister, and his father a cousin.
He was largely responsible for the huge loans made to Russia after the
Japanese war. which he arranged with Count Witte, who consulted with him
in Paris before sailing for the Portsmouth peace conference.
ROSE FROM THE RANKS
When Count Berchtold resigned
as minister of foreign affairs for Aus
tria-Hungary and it was announced
that Baron Stephen Burian de Rajecz
had been appointed to the position,
there was a hurried search through
books of reference for facts concern
ing this man who was to guide the
destinies of a great empire at a most
critical time. The search was almost
in vain, for he had been practically
unknown to the world at large. He
is an example of the possibility of
rising from the ranks to the highest
position in the state merely by doing
his full duty wherever he was placed.
Baron Burian was born in Stomfa.
Ponsony county, Hungary, in 1851. He
did not inherit the title of a baron at
his birth. His father was a member of
the nobility, but did not belong to the
Stephen Burian selected a career
In the consular service and received
his education in the Oriental academy
e[ Vienna, the training school for that service. He held his first official
positions in Alexandria, Egypt, and served then as vice-consul in Bucharest,
Roumania and Belgrade, Serbia. His next post was in Sofia, Bulgaria, and by
this time he was promoted consul general. It was then that he was trans-
ferred from the consular to the diplomatic service and appointed minister
to Athens, Greece.
Burian's diplomatic career ended when he was appointed minister of
finance for the joint affairs of Austria and Hungary, which department had
supreme control of Bosnia and Herzegovina, the two Turkish provinces which
had 'been intrusted by the congress of Berlin of 1878 to Austro-Hungarian
administration. Burian played a very important role in the marvelous in-
dustrial and commercial development of the two provinces.

Houston B. Teehee, who has suc

treasury, is, like.his predecessor, an
Indian, being five-eighths Cherokee.
He was born in 1874 in what is now
Sequoyah county, Oklahoma, was
reared on a farm and educated in the
tribal schools and at Forth Worth
university. He served as an alder
man in Tahlequah and was mayor of
that city for two terms. Mr. Teehee
is married, but has no children.
Mr. Teehee's father was assistant
chief of the Cherokees. He served as
a delegate to Washington during the
period of negotiations leading up to
tribal dissolution. He had been con
i nected with tribal politics during his
entire life until the tribal entity was
abolished in 189S.

THE TOMAHAWK, WHITE EAlrttH, MINN.
With tae death ot Lord Rothschild
in England, the leadership ot the fa
mous family ot financiers has shifted
from London to Paris, for the new
head of the clan is Baron Edouard de
Rothschild of the latter city.
Baron Edouard, whose title is
Austrian, as are those ot all the
French Rothschilds, is a man ot forty
seven. He was admitted to the firm
in 1905 v-hen his father, Baron Al
phonse, then head of the house, died,
being an only son. The same year
he married Germaine Halpen, the
daughter of Emil Halpen, a million
aire sugar merchant, and the grand
daughter of the financier Fould, the
Rothschilds' great rival, who man
aged the affairs of Napoleon III. The
marriage, in uniting the two banking
families of France, was acceptable to
the bridegroom's family, although
their policy had been to intermarry
among themselves. Baron Edouard
was a nephew as well as a cousin of

in New York preparatory to going to
South America to ascend Mount Sora

second time, she told how she did it.
"I cook my own meals over an
electric stove in my room, and do my
marketing," she said. "For breakfast
1 have coffee, using a heaping tea

can coffee at 18 cents a pound, and
putting evaporated milk in it. With
this I have rye bread and peanut but

cents. I have also spinach, of which

extravagance of the Americans in food
was simply awful. "New Yorkers
"Step Lively" the Word in New York's Restaurants
EW YORK."Step lively!" is the command one hears in the early eve-
ning here. You hear it in the subway, street cars, in fact everywhere
and you are reminded that the order is in vogue at the high-priced Broad
way restaurants. The speed of the
waiter in serving you is amazing and
he also expects you to bolt your food.
When he thinks you are done, oi
ought to be done, he hurries you
away. You have no doubt eaten a
fairly elaborate meal, for every item
of which you have paid about three
prices. You have paid the waiter, oi
are about to pay him, for bringing you
the things for which you have paid
the three prices. Then, perhaps, youi
coffee finished, you light a cigarette
or a cigar, and fancy that for about two minutes you will sit back and feel
comfortable. But you are not allowed to do it in peace. The waiter is right
on hand with a clean cloth, which he prepares to lay for the next customer.
He crowds and hustles about, removing the cloth, and plainly serving you
with notice that your time is up.
The place has your money, and it wants to be rid of you. If you protest,
you may receive an apology but that will not prevent the waiter from
serving the next party in just the same way. The more crowded table d'hote
places have another way of getting you out when you are done. If people
are waiting for your table the waiter or the proprietor indicates you, even
before you get to the coffee, to the next claimants, and stands these people
up against the wall, somwhere in plain view, to wait for you to get out
'That gentlemao'll be through in a minute, sir." You become conscious ot
these people hungrily watching you. If you take your coffee a sip at a time,
you have a guilty feeling that you are possibly starving two worthy people
to death. Besides, it is not pleasant to be watched in this way. So you
swallow your coffee in a hurry, burning your throat, and get out as fast as
possible. Club of Boomers of Mustache Meets in Boston
OSTON.The Mustache Club of America held its first annual banquet one
evening recently at the Parker house. The scope of this young organiza-
tion is nation-wide, although it' was conceived in Beverly and all its mem.
bers, to date, are temporary residents
of that city.
Its aim is to increase the growth
of mustaches on young men. There
are 19 charter members, and they
come from various parts of the world.
Business has taken them to Beverly,
and they all live now at the Y. M. C.
A heavy fine is the penalty If a
member backslides and shaves off the
adornment on his upper lip. At the
banquet there were present nino
backsliders, but each vowed he'd have his mustache again before many
David Black of Glasgow, Scotland, minus mustache, was toastmaster, and
Mayor Herman A. MacDonald of Beverly was guest of honor and principal
speaker. He talked partly on "Mustaches" and partly on civic duties of young
men. President Philip Browning, a backslider, spoke briefly.
Then came a historical paper, prepared and presented by Vice-President
Andrew C. Hanson of Winchester, a mustache wearer, and Percy D. Collins
of Saratoga Springs, N. Y., a backslider. This paper recounted the vicissi-
tudes of existence of the mustache since the time Adam sprouted his. Except
for a few short periods, "notably during the reign of Queen Anne, when peri-
wigs were in fashiontho mustache has always been in favor. During the
nineteenth century the army led the mustache-wearing custom."
Today the lack of mustaches is largely due, say these historians, to the
wail of*the scientist that "mustaches carry the greatest variety of germs and
bacteria." Oldest of Government Buildings Is in Santa Fe
FE, N. more than three centuries the history of the South-
west in the low. massive adobe building at Santa Fe, known
as the palace of the governors. Here reigned 100 executives of New Mexico,
some with high, autocratic hand, oth
ers weak and vacillating, under Span
ish, Indian, Mexican and American
regimes. During the Pueblo revolu
tion of 1680 1,000 men, women and
children were crowded into this build
ing and its placita. while hordes of
Indians were hurling themselves
against its two protecting towers,
their arrows and their missiles fall
ing in showers upon the cowering and
frightened mass of Spaniards, who re
plied feebly with cannon and fire-
arms. The Spaniards finally made their escape and retreated in a memorable
march to El Paso, on the Rio Grande.
The building has recently been restored. 1'oday it houses the Museum
of New Mexico, with priceless treasures of archeological interest taken from
the numerous cliff dwellings in the immediate vicinity of Santa Fe.
The palace also houses the School of American Archeology, one of the
five archeological schools maintained by the American Institute of Arche-
ology, the others being in Greece, Italy, Palestine and China. The His-
torical Society of New Mexico, too, has its museum in the building. In ad-
dition, there are three fine librariesone on linguistics, a library of New
Mexicana and a private archeological library. New Mexico is proud of this
palace of the governors, and considers it the most famous landmark in the
United States, as it certainly is the oldest government building north of
Mexico. Kansas City Has an Infantile Cigarette Smoker
ANSAS CITY."How can you ^ure my son of the cigarette habit?" The
questioner was a pretty woman of about thirty, and ehe put the puzzler
to a physician at the General hospital. "Charles has been smoking steadily
for three years now," she went on,
"and I think it's time he was taking
a cure of some kind."

"Just outside the door," came the
answer. "Charlie, come here!"
A child entered the room! Four
years old. The doctor nearly fainted!
"Charlie's father taught him to
smoke when he was a year old," the
mother said. "My husband would put
cigarettes between the baby's lips, and let him puff at them. The child
looked so cute that way. For a year or so this kept up.. Then we tried to

We told our friends not to give him anything to smoke, then he stopped
people on the street and got tobacco that way.
"Now he's four years old. We never let him out on the street alone, but
he gets cigarettes just the same. Older boys sneak them to him. He's
getting an awfully bad temper, and when he gets mad no's quite uncon-
trollable. We blame it all on tobacco. What medicine's good for him?''
"There only one medicine for that child," the physician said. "That'
