Robey & Robinson have ship ped a car of pine lumber to Stoutsville In 1904 there was approxi mately ninety million acres of corn in the United States which produced two and a half billion busiir-U. an average of about tweniy-scven ousneisper acic. Improved seed corn means muoi to the farmer. On the ioh ground and with the same work the , improved seed wiil grow several bushels more corn. Some claim the yield may be increased thirty bushels per acre by improvedseed, but suppose it is only ten bush els the corn grower will more than double his profits, as the average yield is about twenty seven bushels per acre and of this it takes about twenty bush els to pay cost of raising, thus leaving only 7 bushels for profit. Pure bred seed corn will do as much tor corn growing as pure-bred cattle has done for the stock industry. Every farmer should grow fruit. If he does not wish to grow tor market tattno mar. would be profitable) he should grow all that the family can possibly use. The Democrat desires prac tical results of the work of farmers and their better halves. Wanted. One thousand men to buy Perkins Gasoline Engines and Windmills.

And still another: "Gee, but I am glad, for now my stock can get' to the grass and do well and save me feed and work." So, you see, the Lord knows best after all. for those four representative men took different views of one ti.iug and each, in changing conditions, would have done iust what his neighbor did not want done.

Just as soon as she saw the instrument she said: "Oh, isn't it a beauty? ' Then she began to play and stopping right in the middle of the piece she said: "My, but isn't the tone sweet, it is just perfect '' All ladies are invited to stop and not only look at the piano but try it.
