Ethel McNutt, lone The farm lands In this conn- try have, in the last five years, increased one third in value. There seems little doubt that in the next S.five this per centage will still be greater. The people who have been bowliug about farm lands being too high, will. in less than ten years, wish they bad invested all their spare dollars in lands. Tbe man is wise who puts bis sui. plus iu und and holds it for the certain future advances. It will pay him a fair interest iu his investment and constantly increase in value. It cannot I low away or burn up and does not .deteriorate from age like houses and many other classes of property. Moberly Demo crat. Christmas has come and gone Some have been made happy by receiving and giving, while others have only been remind ed bow far tbe good things of life are from them.

ITEMS FROM FARMERS Of Farmers, For Farmers And Pertaining To'Farmers., It takes money and lots of it to pay tbe expenses of a news paper like tbe Democrat. If you owe us and there are hun dreds who do please do not wait until 'we baye to ask you personally for tbe money due us, but please let us have it now, as we need it very much. If you, dear reader, are not a paid subscriber to tbe Democrat you should be. Perhaps tbe reason why so many girls change the spelling of their, christian, name is be cause tbey desire a change of name and are unable to change th eir surname.. . Chicago Has Race War.. Chicago, Jan 3. Following tbe murder of Fireman James Judge by two negroes supposed to live in the "black belt" near the Chicago Stock Yards, dan ger of the mobbing of all ne groes in the district became so great that police patrols were doubled and tbe entire force of bluecoats at every station in the vicinity ordered to bo'd themselves ready, for riot d"uty " Ju(?ge was killed because be brushed against the negroes in alighting from a crowded Stock Yards street car. One ot the men knocked bim down with tbe but of a revolver and tbe other stabbed him as be lay un conscious. Tbe fireman died a few hours later. Tbe negroes fled and a drag-net search is be ing made for them. The gath ering of crowds in tbe "black belt" is prohibited and Ibere is talk ot closing the saloons in the vicinity. "In tbe name of thousands ot unbroken homes in which mid night band-to-band fights with death have been fought and won; in tbe name of thousands of lives rescued from abnormal ity and made useful; in tbe name of unshed tears and fore stalled pain and baffled death I doff my bat today to tbe Doc tor. May be never have use for his own medicine. May each moment of pain he has saved others shine lu the crown ot bis life a bright star. May the children to whom be has saved parents and tbe pireats to whom be has saved coildren take time to acknowledge bis worth. May his patients pay bim bis bill. And in tbe inevi table hour may a certain grim adversary recognise a noble toe and deal gently with the doctor." A man once said If be told tbe truth be would not have to re member what be said.

Up in Pennsylvania lives an editor who edits tbe Tyrone Herald as a means of livelihood and watches nature for weather signs as a means of pastime and recreation. He says without reserve or qualification that tbe coming winter is to be tbe hard est oue in twenty years. I isten to bim when be telis us bow he knows. He says! "The corn busks are a foot and a half thick, and all the stalks lean to tbe west. "The geese, ducks and chick ens are growing a coat of fur under their feathers, and are rubbing borax on tlieir feet to bardeu,them up. "All tbe one-eyed owls are leaving tbe country a month earlier than usual, and the bob tailed squirrels are laying in sweet potatoes, as well as uuts, tor winter provisions, "Tbe farmer who has taken the trouble to investigate has found that all tbe toadstools on the old logs have wrinkles on them. The last time that this happened we bad winter weath er that froze the bandies of plows. ' Rabbits are sitting around with a bumped-up look to them, and field mice have wrinkles in their.taila." Tbe Tyrone weather prophet concludes that these things mean that the weather in Penn sylvania will be 20 degrees be low zero from November through to May with few or no modifications. Let us hope that sort ot weather will not cross tbe Potomac with an eye to a prolonged sojournin the south. , P. O. WooJln gaye the Dem ocrat a pleasant call Wednesday.
