PBICE, 1.50 PLH YEAR IN ADVANCE.
WE were glad to learn upon our
return from the Editorial Excursion
that the Farmers' Institute at War
ren was a complete success. Supt.
Hoverstad, whom we met at Crooks
ton, expressed himself as well pleased*
with the large attendance and great
interest shown in the meeting by the
farmers as well as by the citizens of
Warren. It is very proper that the
dwellers in the town and the country
work hand in hand in a matter of
this kind, as anything that will edu
cate, elevate and help the farmers
will also be beneficial to the towns
people. Many new ideas and sugges
tions were scattered about like seeds
which will in time spring up and bear
fruit in improved methods of farming.
Agriculture is getting to be more and
more of a science, and in recent years
there has been a great deal inquiry
and investigation to learn how farm
ing may be made more productive.
The matter of mixed farming has re
ceived a great deal of attention, and
now when we see the price of wheat
fall in propoition to the rainfall,
happy indeed is the faimer who has
other farm products than wheat to
dispos3 of during the year. And even
though the wheat crop bhould wither
in youth or he struck at maturity by
the relentless hail-stone, the farmer
who has learned to diversify can turn
to his pig stile, his sheep pen and
stock yard for solace and gain. The
American farmer is the most impor
tant factor in our civilization to-day.
He more than any other class sways
the destinies of the republic. He lives
close to nature's heart, from which
he draws inspiration for a true and
noble life. To the tiller of the soil
this country owes much of its great
ness and its wealth. The United
States can produce enough foodstuff
to supply the world, and statesmen
say that the nation that feeds the
world lules the world. Farmers' In
stitutes are held in order that the
greatness, prosperity and happiness
of this nation may be still further

Mr. F. E. Nelson and Miss Augusta
Johnson Harried flonday Evening.
The wedding bells have rang again
in our city and two more of our young
people have joined their lives in th,e
happy bonds of wedlock, and will
travel the journey of life together.
Last Monday evening at the residence
of Mr. and Mrs. C. J. Johnson oc
curred the wedding of their daughter
Augusta to Frans E. Nelson. Both
of the young people are well known in
Warren and vicinity, and each has a
large list of personal friends among
both old and young. Mr. Nelson is
our popular merchant tailor. The
wedding ceremony was celebrated in
the handsome parlor of the Johnson
residence, and promptly at six o'clock
in the evening the bridal party filed
into the room. The groom was ac
companied by Garfield Johnson,
brother of the bride, and Miss Malin
da Johnson was in attendance upon
the bride. Mr. C. J. Johnson, the
bride's father, led the bride to the
altar, and Rev. A. Mattson tied the
hymeneal knot. The room was tastily
decorated with flowers and evergreens,
and a large number of friends crowded
the room to witness the beautiful wed
ding ceremony of the Swedish Luth
eran church. At the close of the cere
mony and after the numerous con
gratulations had been tendered the
happy couple, those assembled were
ushered to a bowery that had been
erected on the spacious lawn, where
the wedding supper had been spread'.
The happy couple were the recipients
of a large number of useful and orna
mental presents, in appreciation of
the esteem in which they are held.
Mr. Nelson has erected a fine resi
dence on Bridge street, and as soon
as the finishing touches are put upon
it they will occupy it. The SHEAF ex
tends congratulations and wish for
Mr. and Mrs. Nelson a long and pros
perous journey through life, and may
the great Roadmaker clear their
paths from the ruts and stumps, and
leave for them a smooth passage.

Yes, August Flower still has the
largest salp of any medicine* in the
civilized world. Your mothers' and
grandmothers' never thought of us
ing anything else for Indigestion or
Biliousness. Doctors svere scarce,
and they seldom heard of Appendi
citis, Nervous Prostration or Heart
failure, etc. They used August Flow
er to clean out the system apd stop
fermentation of undigested food, reg
ulate the action of the liver, stimu
late the nervous and organic action
of the system, and that is all they
took when feeling dull and bad with
headache and other aches. You on
ly need a few doses of Green's August
Flower, in liquid form, to make you
satisfied there^is nothing serious the
matter with you. Get Green's Prize
Almanac at the local drug stores.
