* HOLD TOO MUCH LAND.
Perusal of census bulletins show
that the noble red man is holding down
too much good American sod. His
paletace competitor needs these areas
in bis business of creating wealth.
Why the Indian should monopolize
vast stretches of the best land in the
west, utilizing it for no better purpose
than raising scrub ponies, is something
that needs explanation.
All this land is not worth much to
the Indian. Uncle Sam should lose no
time in taking it off his hands at a
fair valuation, and give the army of
homeseekers a chance to develop it.
HAND SEPARATORS INCREASING.
The number of hand separators on
farms is increasing both in this coun
try and in Europe. There is a con
stant conflict of opinion between those
in favor of the hand separator and
those in favor of milk delivered whole
to the central creamery. Each me
thod has an advantage. With men
owning but few cows the hand separa
tor will never be popular, as it repre
sents a considerable investment and
requires skilled care. The man that
has a goodly number of cows finds the
separator a good investment. So we
may expect to see the two systems ex
ist side by side. The hand separator
is certainly preferable from a sani
tary standpoint, except where the
large creamery sterilizes all skim

S. Central Alaska.
D. McKinley, Esq., Seattle, Wash. —
I believe this country is able to sup
port a large agricultural population.
At Tyonick I saw a garden which
they told me had been planted only
three weeks. The vegetables had made
more growth than they would have
in twice that length of time in Wash
ington, owing, of course to the long
days. In fact, the potatoes were al
most ready to bloom.
I have seen meadows of hundreds of
acres of red-top grass standing four
feet high the last of June. I dropped
a few oats among some brush and
trees nine days ago and I will send
you a specimen of the result. (The
editor was shown this specimen, eight
inches long.) You can judge what
growth they would have made had they
been sown in open ground.
We are getting along on the survey
very well. We have crossed the Little
Susitna and expect to reach the Big
Susitna in about a week. Think we
will have the work over half done
If not too much trouble would like
to have you write me the news in re

whether the shares have advanced any,
and also if they intend to do any
work on the line this fall. Our ad

THIS YEAR'S CORN CROP.
A reliable expert estimates that 50
per cent more money will be needed
to move the corn crop of 1902 than was
brought into requisition last year.
More than 100,000,000 acres were plant
ed to corn last spring, or about 20,000,
--000 acres in excess of normal, the ex
cess having been stimulated by last
year's shortage and high prices. Any
one of the five principal corn states —
Illinois, lowa, Kansas, Nebraska or
Missouri, has fifty times as large an
area in this grain combined as have
all the New England States combined.
Of the total acreage more than three
fourths lies in the Mississippi, Ohio,
and Misouri valeys.
That the crop will be the largest ev
er grown in the United States is now a
certainty. It has had many vicissi
tudes. That about 2,500,000,000 will
be crippled is almost a certainty. This
is a round billion bushels in excess
of the harvest of last year, and fully
25 per cent, greater than that of 1900.
But the days of 15 cent corn are
over. Seemingly but yesterday there
existed popular clamor for a European
market. Now no surplus is in sight.
Home consumption is growing, and
within a few years the producing ca
pacity of the corn belt will be taxed.
tor there is but one corn belt and its
area is limited, and boundaries well
denned. —Chicago Livestock World.

I had nervous indigestion and a gen

It had been a continual torture for 12
years. My blood became very poor and
at times my toe and finger nails would
be diseased. After eating I would sit in
a chair and put my feet on something
to keep them from swelling, and at
times would take off my shoes for the
misery I had. Whenever 1 experience
anything to remind me of past aches I
cannot lie too elated to tell what Ripan.s
