The American Farmer is sincere In xvhat it says and whenever it endorses an article, be it machinery, proprietary medicine, or a man individually, we want our readers to believe that what we say we have good reason to under stand is true. For a year or more there have been endorsements of the Swanson Rheumatic Cure Company, ot 167 Dearborn street, Chicago, by this taper. People have written us to Tinow if this company is responsible, 5 nd if its remarkable remedies, for the -' cure of rheumatism, neuralgia, dyspep ela, catarrh, kidney troubles, etc., real ly had merit. We have therefore been jal extra pains to investigate, and once I again we add emphasis to our former endorsement of that company? There may be Isolated cases here and there j which, probably through neglect in fol lowing directions, or from exposure or jsome unexplalnable reason, the won derful Five Drops remedy does not do ;the work. But It is a case where the exception proves the rule. Mr. Swan son Is a gentleman of character and personal Integrity, and, we believe, I vould no more attempt to deceive the public than the writer of this article.

' i Mrs. Elizabeth "Whkelock, Magno lia, Iowa, in the following letter de scribes her recovery from a very criti cal condition: I Dear Mrs. Pinkiiam: I have been taking your Vegetable Compound, and 1 amnow rendv tnsrmnrl its praises. It has done won ders for me in relieving me of a tumor. 44 My health has been poor for three years. Change of life was working upon me. I was very much bloated and was a bur- iden to myself.

Sugar lleet Contracts llelog Made With Farmer Which arc Not According to the Hounty Lw A Severe Snow Storm Causes Much Loir. About Sugar Iteet Contractu. ' Land Commissioner French, who is charged with the enforcement of the beet sugar law passed by the legisla ture of 1697, finds that contracts which parties are making with the farmers of Monroe and Oakland and adjoining counties, for the growing of sugar beets, are not according to that law, .which offers a bounty of one cent a pound upon all hugar manufactured In Michigan from beets grown in the state. That law provides that "the manufacturer shall produce good and sufficient receipts and vouchers to show that at least S4 per ton of 2,000 pounds has actually been paid for all beets purchased, containing 12 per cent of sugar," and "a sum proportionate to that amount for all beets containing a greater or less per cent of sugar." The law makes no discrimination as to the co-efllcicnt purity of beets. The same price is paid for beets with a co-cfli-cient of purity of 75 as for those of a purity of 8.", should the per cent of sugar be the same but prices set forth in the contract spoken of are on a basis of cocflicient purity and are much less than the price required by law, and the state will not pay any bounty Upon sugar manufactured from beets 'secured under such a contract and paid for accordingly. This contract also provides that farmers must accept the tests of the factory expert as final, but the law says that the state land com missioner shall appoint suitable weigh mcn and inspectors and assistants-.

Startling Finding In Flection llecount. ; In recounting the vote for county treasurer in Saginaw some glaring er rors have been turned upon which greatly affect other candidates, in cluding those for the legislature.
