Farms-by-mail Scheme.
Selling farms by mall is.an Industry
noticeably on the decline In Chicago,
various exposures of the facts behind
glow i ng magazine ad vei tlsements ha
Ing served usefully, aided by the In
vestigation by postottjee inspectors
which have alarmed the unscrupulous
meuwho promised little earthly
paradises, some for ' seventeen cents
a day" and others or a similarly easy
sum. Emerson Hough, the famous
novelist, ma,de an' investigation of
many of the "farms-by-mail" schemes
and related ;nany ingenious processes
for separating the unwary from their
cash, his conclusions being summed
up in the warning; "Never buy laud
or-anything else without first tare-
fully Investigating the character of
the men with whom you arc going to
do business.' The State of Michigan
has been a great sufferer from the
operations of land sharks who sell to
the ignorant and trusting the poorest
laud in the state us '-farms," many
victims having found that their pur
chases, unless a prohibitive amount
was spent by them, were worthless s
farms. In other states land grants
and clouded titles aro also used as a
cloak for nefarious real estate schemes.
A year or so ago there was a concern
operating out In Ohio which sold
Texas lands that very likely the seller
had uever seen. He missed the loca
tion of the Pecos Kiver by a great
many miles, invented towns that cjid
not exist, and sometimes gave county
recorders in Texas trouble in trying
to lind lauds described as lying with
in their county lines.
Not only Chicago, but the whole
country has suffered because of im
postors who have used the mails to
pread alluring accounts of opportuni
ties that do not exist and real estate
that is worthless. Michigan laud
buyers have been vitimized also by
this method of selling real estate and
have become suspieio.is of all adver
tising schemes of the kind. Even the
Western Michigan Development
liurtau has beu accused r lending
itself to questionable efforts of th
kind and ot permitting itself to be
manipulated by smuo unci upulous
land sharks, who have private "axes

The cold blooded murder of Jacob
Kraft and his wife in a road house on
Woodward Avenue, Detroit, Saturday
night or last week, isacrlme for which
the ''regulated" Clinton street saloons
were directly responsible. Charles E
Fuller, who murt'eicd Mr. and Mrs
Kraft, Is repotted in the Detroit Free
Pres as haying visited various sa
loons otj Clinton streetSaturday after
noon. He drank a good deal of whis
key at these places and while under
its influence purchased the revolvers
with which the crime was committed
The pith fiopi Detroit saloons to
murderous crimes has bocn very often
taken through recent weeks. .
Louis Peril lu, the youngltallan who
shot and kflled AlRurdick in asaloon
brawl in Wexford recently, pleaded
guilty to manslaughter and was sen
tenced by JiJdje May nt to a term of
from five to fifteen years in the Ionia
reformatory. The young man had
heretofore born a good reputation. It
is fully realized in the community
where the crlmo occured that the $a
loon and its entire day of drinking
and drunkeness were directly tefpon
sible for the stabbing and killing of
Al Uurdlek. by one whom a little
while before had been his friend. The
killing of Al Rurdlck and the pcnl
tentionary sentence of Louis Perlllo
will be Incidents that will not be for
gotten by the voters of thatKcctlon of
the state when they vote on the ques
tion as to whether or not the saloon
n which this murder was committed
shall remain open.
We quote the following pity para
graphs from an editorial in the Chi
cago Tribune:-
Thc predomination of girls in the
public schools, both grammar and
high, is a regrettable fact. It is bad
for every one concerned; for the boys,
who will not receive their best devel-
pmeu'.; for the girls; who will find
themselves obliged to accept as mates
men in some way inferior totht mselves
for the city, which will be peopled
largely with male citizens narrowed
by lack of opportunity; or the repub-
io itself, which will have a mass of
voters not really qualified to decide
upon the import ent questions which
will be Intrusted to them.
School education is not the only
sort of valuable educat'ion, it is true
but it is , the piost reliable base of
education. It can do no ingjo than
open up the doors of life, but lacking
it, many of thtse doors must remain
forever closed, or at least there is
danger that they will do so. The
merlcan public had In the old days
an almost fetichlike confidence in the
elllcacyof education. It wasunashmed
of pverty, providing it did not im
ply thriltlessness; and when it meant
that high economy which consisted
in going material without comforts for
the sake of cultivating the mind, it
was justly proud of It.
A return to this old spirit is needed.
Don't let the boys go to work merely
because the first excitement of money
earning is on them. Don't let them
heedlessly sacrifice themselves that
your own burden made a trifle lighter,
Your family is standing still when
you do that sort of thing, and not pro
gressing as an American family ought
to progress. Look to the future of
your boys, not to your present ease.
Thev da not realize what they are
missing, but you do, especially if you
have missed the higher education
yourself. The evolution of the fam
ily is one of the finest games which
anybody (ran play, and it is one, in
which .aiiyono cau take a hand. Rot
ter hold to the old ideals and keep the
bovs In school. Your self-respect-
will increase if you do, and the hard-
erit is for you to do it. the .more satis
faction you will have from your

We think that, it is worse than use
Icsh to attempt to cure constipation
with cathartic druys. Cathartics may
do much harm. They may cause a
reaction, irriatc and weaken tlie
bowels and make constipation more

Constipation is often accompanied
and may be caused by weakness of the
nerves and muscles of the lar'c intes
tine or colon. Toepcta cure vou
must therefore tone up and strengthen
those parts and restore them to health
