ADVICE TO FARMERS. By H. n. Carr & Co., tho Farmer's Commission House. i. We are in. the midst of an exciting apolitical campaign; the great cities Bare stirred by monster demonstrations. The great orators hold forth every •night in halls, wigwams, and tents. Po- hltical leaders are busy figuring out the result in advance of the election. Thou- RBands of men in the employ of the na- Itional committees are ascertaining as Inear as possible how each city ward, how each branch of organized labor, how each city will vote. One thing no nan, no set of men, no campaign committee, no political party can tell in ..advance, that is, how the farmers of Bthe country will vote. The one great Iquestlon to-day is: How do the farm- fers feel about it? We mention this Konly to illustrate a point in practical ['business matters. I Agricultural workers are learning * their power In politics. They can make ? or unmake state legislatures. They do t it by imitating the methods of lafcor f in cities, by working together. They ' do not need local unions. They can > work in our' grand intellectual union ! for their common good. They .nave ;• done it In demanding legislation. They i are doing it now in a way that makes i, leaders tremble. They will act more Bintelllgently and united in the future, 'ffhey find other things than politics to Tall for their decision. They produce vhat the world needs.. They are study- aiig new methods of giving the fruit of Iheir labors to the world. Recently an army of 100,000 men marched through a-jChicago's streets celebrating the twen- fty-flfth anniversary of the great flre. fehe farmers have for years fed a much fereater army;" not only,fed, but made Irich, presented with grain elevators, Iprivate banks; fine houses, costly lux- lurles the old-time, ever-present army tot middlemen.

"Boys," solemnly remarked the neavy-set man in the light suit, holding an Inverted match in one hand, and a large, fat, brunette cigar in the other, "never acquire tho pernicious habit of smoking. I'm a slave to it now, and yet I abhor it. I never see a cigar, but what I want to burn it up." And then, with extreme satisfaction, he proceeded to burn up the one ho held in his hand. —H. J. S. THE WELL GROOMED WOMAN. Matrimonial Amenities. "How-dare you be so. rude to me," demanded the angered wife, "before our. marriage 'has been pronounced valid by a court'of last resort? Suppose it should prove that we are not married?" Even in his bitterness tho Iiusbaml could see that he had been hasty,— Indianapolis Journal. An 15il grfllfins Weapon, Willie Puffems—It makes me blood ,boll, ah, to weacl of the fighting In Cuba. I am sewlously thinking, Miss Dolly, of going to the Cubans' aid. Miss Dolly—That's very patriotic of you, Mr. Puffems, but you must remember that the Spaniards do not in the least object to cigarette smoke. She never wears any but the neatest of jihoee and gloves.

Absolute sincerity may exist, but mi trade with human hfltttr haz taught me to be satisfied if 1 kah find sincerity that will pan 45 cents on the dollar.

It kosts more money, reckoning time worth a dime an hour, to learn any kind of a game, so that yu kan beat enny man playing it, than yu kan win bak if yu liv to be 97 years old. I have known men and wlmmln to helium thoroly disgusted with the world, and all that thare waz in It, nnd not understand that It wnz themselfa they waz disgusted with all the time. An illustrious pedigree Iz a grate burden, and re&ponslbllty. To lug around the bones ov a distinguished great-grandfather,and do justiss to the bones and kredlt to ourselfs, Iz a cluss transackshun. The world eeldum makes a mistake when called upon to decide between what iz positively false and waht Iz positively tru; abstract right and wrong are reached bi instlnkt, and In- stinkt iz not only honest, but iz smart. Old bachelors are apt to think that they are very important fellows, when at best they are merely ornamental; sumthlng like a tin weather kok on the ridge pole ov a barn, that haz rusted fast, and kan't even sho which Way the wind bloze.

In making up their minds too many people are careless abotit the material they use. We may all be equal before the law t but there's usually a mighty difference In us afterward. The man who says he can love but once usually has himself for the object of his affections. "If" and "but" are the sons of hesitation and between them fill many a public pool-house. It's an awful long distance between the pulpit and the most desirable pew In some churches. The world owes every man a living; and the laborer is simply the bill collector of the millionaire. There Is work in the world for every man to do, but some of them are fortu- tiato enough to be able to hire some one else to do It. i/ftl j.^'i U alHnit ftS WrlSfig to I £* it la W d« Wtfng? , ;.' ,j&& A lie Is always 4« eftfeffiy', fid tt|fiE|(f m ffiefidiy It no* labfcv ,-. -. -JL £fa ftnw converted ffiatt is ,ft. ^flffilfj •&6f that the fittfe Is tfm / \ We wotttd all lo-.v^lJea' f»8lf8'i£ How ttttich ptsylbg*l¥dfe«8 iff jflt that God Isfi't expelled ,16 hlaft' i Horn, ti , This independent action began with ! this pioneer farmer's commission house. jt is assuming proportions which make ' the easy money-makers (professional : shippers) at the stations over a dozen ' f states tributary to Chicago tremble. .
