f/Si Wlfi 1 ,v -v '-'.ftp $ ft*}* u-V&J ADVERTISING! Do What You Advertisel "ADVERTISING," as this term la commonly accepted by the public, means anything and everything in the shape of publicity. This poor, misused and much bused but vitally IMPORTANT COM MERCIAL WORD has been "made over" until what it actually does mean will be a surprise to the average person, when consulting Webster's dictionary. To Advertise really means to make public the ACTUAL untarnished, unvarnished, and yndistorted FACTS. How many advertisements really do this? In writing an advertisement, the motive should be an aspiration to inform the public clearly of the BONA FIDE CONDITIONS it should not toe an inspiration to hypnotize the public and loosen its purse strings, without regard to merit, truth or veracity, as we know to be the guiding star of many an advertisement writer in this modern age. In explaining our position we want to say frankly that we in tend to "PRACTICE WHAT WE PREACH. We are daily making the assertion that the Litchfield Spreader stands head and shoul ders above other machines, and we don't want this to be an empty statement. We mean what we say and we intend that our adver tisements shall say exactly what we mean by backing up our state ments with a GUARANTEE THAT TALKS FOR ITISELF." There is a tendency on the part of many advertisers when ex ploiting certain farm machinery, to make UNREASONABLE OLAjIMS and then back them up just as little as they can. We in tend to avoid,any such a position and hope that our advertise ments, crude though they maybe, Bhall stand out 'by themselves, bearing the STAMP OF HONBST CONVICTIONS. When we tell the trade tha the Litchfield Spreader has a strength of construction not found in other spreaders that it le far ahead of the average machine in various details and in many general ways, we want it distinctly understood that we have WEIGHED OUR WORDS CAREFULLY. We wish to make it clear that no statements are placed before our customers without 'being carefully considered and meaaared. What we advertise, we mean to do and we know our spreaders will do. We make claims, and, to sustain these claims, WE HAVE THE EVIDENCE sufficient. We don't ask any man to buy a Litch field Manure Spreader because we tell Mm to, but we do ask and de mand of the careful conservative buyer, his Investigation and an unbiased opinion. We advertise the Litchfield Spreader as having its OWN EX CLUSIVE FEATURES, not found on any other machine. Besides quite a number of special forms of construction used on certain of our different size machines, we wish to call particular attention to two of the MOST MODERN INVENTIONS, and probably the GREATEST INVENTIONS ever used on a manure spreading ma chine. We refer to our BULL DOG beater wheel, or distributing cylinder,, and to our NO CHOKE box. These things should ibe in vestigated by every prospective purchaser. To be continued. The Freeman-Bain Co.

In a great many cases straw piles dot the stubble •fields.and are In practically the same condition as they when the thresher pulled away irom them last fall. A great many farmers, -especialy In the northern part of the state, do not keep stock enough tto work the straw up, their only means of disposing of these straw stacks is to burn tbrem. Their fires can lie seen from now till seeding time every night in every direction. Mr. Farmer, before you apply a match ito a straw pile juBt stop and consider: 1st, thart the fire you set may lay and smoulder for a week or ten-days before a high wind springs up and fans the smouldering embers into a blaze which may spread to the stub ble or grass and do a great amount of damage for which you are liable to your neighbors. '2nd, It is a misdemeanor, punish able by fine or imprisonment or both, at the discretion of the court, for setting afire without 50 feet of fresh plowing completely surround ing the straw stack or stubble set on fire. Several farmers have recently been arrested .by the state fire mar- The department has prosecuted, criminally, only a few of the most flagrant cases, but we hereby give fair warning that you will find the Fire Marshal camping on the trail of the people who set fires contrary to law. F. A. CRAFT, State Fire Marshal IS OUT FOR SETTLERS Presho Commercial Club Has Emis sary at Chicago Presho, S. D., March 23.—Busi ness men are making preparations for the Chicago Rosebud colony that will soon take up homesteads on the Tripp. The secretary of the Com mercial club has been in Chicago explaining to the association the ad vantages of coming to Presho to go on to the land. He expects to re turn in a few days and bring the men with their families. Contracts and agreement have been made to take care of all the people coming this way, and to give them the very best rates. The prices for livery, freighting, locating, etc., have been cut and as Presho is the nearest railroad town to the best lands in Tripp county, there is no reason why it should not get its share of the homesteaders, t., Deadiwoods, S.

About a year ago the defendant's father died, leaving aix -estate of about $25,000. When young Cuthbertson failed to pay the alleged debt his wife brought suit.

The wife is now suing him for divorce. In another suit brought "by the same plaintiff against her mother in-law, Mrs. Isabella Cuthbertson, she was not bo fortunate. Plaintiff alleged that in 1902 defendant and her young daughter were maintain ed by plaintiff at an Omaha board ing house where defendant and her married son, Bert Brown of ..Omaha resided.
