Apple Growers Attention Read what Professor Aven Nelson, State Horticulturist of the State of Wyoming says regarding The Big Horn I beg to state that my visit of inspection to the fruit section of the Big Horn Basin was exceedingly satisfactory. The orchards that I visited along the Big Horn River are in full fruit, even this year. I regard the outlook for the lands along the river from Worland to the Canon and the lower course of the Shoshone from Cowlev to Ionia as exceedingly prom ising. My observation leads me to as valuable for the production of high those in Idaho and Montana. Shell prise to anyone who visited the locality. I think anyone would be justi fied in predicting that these lands will able for fruit than for any other crop that might be grown. Such expert opinion as the above, given by an unprejudiced state official, should have weight with those looking for orchard lands. air frvr rnr illnat raf ckA 1itAtaf iipa onrl trvt urill ha cnrnpicaH Vimat rUply these choice apple lands can ifelrttml D- CLEM flSjIIIIirllUlll LANDSEEKERS' INFORMATION BUREAU, 'lite?! l 1004 C A, HAMILTON, Funeral Director Monroe City, Mo.

' ' " :' and daugh- I Life's Inn. ; The Wide World stands a-welcom-; ing beside the sunny way, ! For page and squire and knight and , dame to halt and ride away; i And crimson sweet the roses flam ed that lay upon my breast, When all the world was but an inn, and I a welcome guest. The knights were lion-hearted and their ladies lily fair; The silver armor glittered bright upon the roadway there, When each far distant turning held the promise of a guest. And all the world was but" an inn and I welcome guest. No knock was there of Misery nor step of grimy Toil, But bold Adventure raised the latch his palfrey heaped with spoil; While Romance flew to hold his rein and wait on his behest, When all the world was but an inn and I a welcome gnest. And what care I that youth must fade, and love locks turn to gray? Forsooth, at every inn there lies some reckoning to payl I've warmed my heart beside their fire, partaken of their best. When all the world was but an inn and I a welcome guest So why should I complain and curse in spiteful accents shrill Because another draws his rein, my wonted place to fill? But ere Old Age the taper takes to light me to my rest. I'll draw his chair and drink his - health and make him welcome guest. Martha Haskell Clark, in Smart Set. Some Pointed Paragraphs. A lazy man is always making idle remarks. ailence may give consent or it may give offense. Most marriages are happy; the unhappiness comes later. There's no help for a man who is too lazy to work his friends. Many a man who puts his money in a mine comes out minus. Insomia usually troubles the wife of a man who talks in his sleep. Never judge a man's fondness for cabbage by the cigars he gives you. A dollar in your hand is worth a million in the hands of your exe cutors. There are lots of people who would rather butt in than get there any other way. All men are equal before the law but some are more than equal to the task of getting around it. Women have been known to shake hands for the purpose of try ing to shake secrets out of each other. A good excuse is seldom any more effective than a poor one. It takes a genius to explain him self to those who are hot geniuses. It's awfully hard to convince some men that other people have rights. The same of politics is all right for men who wish to try out their reputations. v When the man is under a cloud himself he is always interested in the clouds of other people. Ex.

Her Quiet Reply The late Mrs. Julia Ward Howe, at a meeting of the Newport Civic League in Newport, said the wom an's work: There are innumerable retorts that we can make to those who tell us that woman's sphere is ex clusively the home, and all these retorts are as neat and pointed as the one the young wife made to her mother-in-law. A young wite, you know, was continually pestered by her mother-in-law about the way she was bring ing up her first-born babe. The young wife was intelligent and cap able, and, she was really doing very well with the baby. Fiom her mother-in-law, however, she got nothing but sour advice, warnings and veiled abuse "One day the mother-in-law, look ing fixedly at the bride with her baoy on her lap, said angrily: "A woman has no right to have a child if she doesn t know how to hold it!" JNo. nor a tongue either, was the quiet reply." Washington Star. Increasing Corn Crops. This year's corn crop is the largest on the record. It tops the crop of 1909 by 349.000,000 bushels and places the new mark at 3,121, 000,000 bushels. Corn is about 12 cents cheaper than a year ago, so the season's crop is probably worth the same as last year's. But we need not consider money values which are established in speculative markets. The fact is the farmers have more corn than last year to feed their stock. The packers give as one explana tion of the high price of hogs the shortage of feed. This shortage must be made up in great measure by the bumper corn crop. More over, the farmer has learned to value his corn. It is his bank re serve As he learns to value it, so will he learn to improve it. Indications are plentiful that great and valuable as the corn crop now is. exceeding all others in quantity and worth, an average yield of between 25 and 20 bushels to the acre is far below the possi bilities. The reclaimed lands of Southeastern Missouri have made 68 bushels to the acre this. A man in Massachusetts secured 127 bushels from a single acre It has been proved time and again that improved methods will make a 50 bushel average the tule. Cora crops of 5,000,000,000 bush els are a prospect and the . realiza tion involves no increase of acreage,--A tyro can , see . that the future contains., jaothing. to delight the soul of the pessimist Prosper ity and the corn crop travel hand in hand.
