That started me investigating.
I learned that Macldey had sim
ply used die methods introduced
by the famous hone trainer, Jesse
Beety. Beery, I learned, used to
go about die country (dving won
derful exhibitions in colt-breaking
and horse-training but iralrying
that he could accomplish more by
teaching his methods by mail, had
given up his exhibition work la
spread his horse-training secrets
by mail-instruction. Mackley had
studied Beery's Course in his
spare time ana in a few mondis
was able to accomplish magical
results with green colts andhanea
with bad habits.

BOUT two yean ago I witnessed up in
New York State an exhibition of horse
training that opened my eyes. A man
by the name oi Macldey took a devil of a
mean, vicious man that hadn't been harnessed
for seven months and in a.few days had her
contle enough for a school girl to diive. Mackley
had taken the mate off the owner*s hands for
$50 and just ten days after sold her for $i 75J00L
A clear profit of $125.00 in tea
days! ...
Macjdey*s work showed me away to make
some nice money and I determined to take Prof.
Beery's Course in horse-haining—but before
doing so I made further inqunies. Here are what
a few of Beery's students said. I'll let diem tell
of their success in their own Words.

After handling him only a few "hours according
to Beery's system I sola him lor $135.00.
Mr. Dell Nicholson, Portland, Mich., writes:

and now have her so gentle, my little boy

Yon can see from thisthat roy

usually spoiled at hurt some way at other.
But, when you apply Beery's principles, there is
no hard, long work or injury to die colt.
No one should have a biting, kicking or balky
horse when it is so easy to cure these vicious
habits. No one should attempt to break a cok
the old fashioned way when Beery's methods
make the task so easy. To every horse owner,
to every lover of horseflesh, my advice is to get
acquainted with the Beoy principles. You can
not only make money for yourself, but you can do

Farmers State Bank, Offerle, Kan:
As a citizen of Grand Folks I have
been able to judge the reforms of
the Nonpartisan league movement
more closely than men in-other parts
of the state or country. The first
great publicly owned tertninal elevator
and flour mill will be under, way here
within a month. The elevator will hold
1,500,000 bushels of wheat and the
mill will grind 3,000 barrels of flour a

through ,& financial alliance between
the farmers, merchants and bankers
of this vicinity. The bonds are being
sold locally and the bankers of the city
have guaranteed to dispose of $1,000.
000 worth of them.
The great trouble with North Da
kota has been that all its business has
been transacted outside the state. The
.farmers have shipped their grain
down to the Minneapolis mills, paying
the freight charges, and then had to
pay the return freight on the flour and
middlings to feed their stock. The
building of home industry through
state enterprise is now conceded to be
a wise financial move. The cost of
flour and of mill feeds will be decreas
ed and the price paid to the farmer for
his grain will go up.
Just as an experiment the state ad
ministration purchased a small flour
mill in the interior of the state. It is
paying from 20 to 30 cents more-for
wheat than are the country elevators.
1 spoke only the other day to a farm
er who had made $334 above the local
elevator price by shipping a carload
of grain to the little state mill. This
is not an unusual occurrence and ex
plains the interest of the farmers in
the Nonpartisan league movement.
They consider that they will get back
their membership dues" and their in
creased taxes many times over

doubtedly be of great benefit to the
upbuilding of the state.
Another of the institutions "origi
nated by the Nonpartisan league ad
ministration is the home building as
sociation. This is operated on the
same plan as the building and loan as
sociations, except it is run at cost.
Under this plan the state will build a
home for any man who has deposited
savings with it amounting to 20 per

benefited by the Nonpartisan league
program. Their prosperity is re
flected in that of tike merchants and
bankers, since we all depend upon
agriculture for our profits. The only
merchants or bankers that have suf
fered in this state are those who have
fought their farmer customers and
got into politics. Whenever the oppo
sition to the farmers becomes severe
they establish co-operative stores and
banks of their own, where they are
not molested. Many charges have
been made against the leaders of the
Nonpartisan league but none of them*
have ever been proved. The farmers
are satisfied with their leaders and
always say that it is no one else's
business who they choose to lead their
organization. So far as I know there ^.5
is no affiliation with any other organi
zation, but is simply an association of
farmers who vote to put their own
men in office. Their single aim is to
reform the wastes in marketing. They
believe that the men who handle their
grain are paying them too low a price
and charging them too Ugh a price
for the finished products. This is at
the basis of the Nonpartisan league.
