One of the rnrc letters of William Capesiua, Chicago lawyer and vice consul for Luxembourg, brother ot Frank find 13dw. Capesius here, has been received and is herewith published: "I have Just looked up the definition ot the word 'advance' in the dictionary, and find Unit it means, 'to mako a payment beforehand', 11 also means 'improvement'. Hencn am advancing you $2.50 for the Kossuth County Advance for one year's subscription, and hope by the end of the expiration period I have made some 'Improvement.' Please send the paper to my home address: 530 Sunset Road, Wlnn- etka, 111. "Upon my return to the office this morning from a trip through Iowa, I devoted a few momenta to reflection on the abundant crop ot corn everywhere to be .seen, and the hopeful attitude of the farm- era. Perhaps the man from the large city is presumptuous when he attempts to express himself on farm matters. Can Farmers- Afford Tractors, "The tractor is everywhere; the horse is nowhere. For plowing purposes, the horse is extinct. So far as the tractor Is concerned, the farmers are not observing the i poet's couplet, 'Be not the first by I whom the new is tried, nor yet the last to lay the old aside.' i "The natural inquiry is: Can the [farmer afford a tractor? I am informed that a tractor with two plows lasts about four years. Hence e loses $250 per year by way of epreciation; his costs for gas and il total perhaps 50 cents per acre, o that the cost of plowing on 160 cres will be morethan $3.00 per "With horses he certainly could ot suffer this much depreciation. Moreover, he could always look orward to increase; to the manure for his farm—and what Engish sparrow was ever made happy iy following a tractor? King Richard III is supposed to have said, A horse, a horse, my kingdom for a horse! If the farmers continue purchasing tractors, the time will come when he too will exclaim, A lorse, a horse, my kingdom for a lorse! And How About Automobiles? "The visitor to any county seat n these days of apparent progress, must drive his automohile round and round before he can find a parking place. Pictures of long rows of parked automobiles are supposed to indicate that business is good. Farming is not a superficial business; it is one that requires a great deal of study and planning in addition to hard work. But with $2,000 invested in an automobile and tractor, the farmer with 160 acres of land certainly has very little to spend at the prevailing prices for his products "In the good old days of simplicity and sunshine 1 , the neighbors would express themselves in consolatory words if a farmer lost a horse, but in these days of advance every tractor owner loses the equivalent of two horses each year, without a stir in the emotions of his neighbor. When a man has been urged to the point where he wants to purchase a tractor I presume he uses the argument to himself that he is purchasing the tractor because he desires to make the lot of servitude of his horses THE CURREHT COST OF BEING GOVERNED IN THE UNITED STATES AVERAGES $523??

In ONE STEP WONT YOU THiRE One AP W«'t The race is not always won by the swiftest. Sometimes the plodder is the better man. For myself I would rather wear out than rust out. Some fellows would have to be 90 years old to really have lived 50. Some merchants like a quiet easy business, while others like a crowd. I am happy when the store is full of people and the cash register ringing up the dollars.to buy more goods with. I like action. It is the biggest thing in salesmanship. Some clerks sit on a fitting stool and insted of showing the lady more shoes sit and look at her like a dicing calf.. We figure our customers know what they want and will buy i,t when they see it. So we show shoes until they are satisfied. Then it is yes or no, for at our prices there is always another customer to wait on.
