AS TO LAND VALUES.
That lots and farms are actu
ally worth the price now being
asked for them is as assumption
that is unwarranted. That many
will buy at present prices is a
Wholly mistaken notion. What
the ground might be worth
eome day after the population Of
the county is doubled and treb
led is not what it is worth to
day. .Those people who, insist on
holding all their , ground'' at a
high price, thus making sales
practically impossible, but stand
in their own light. They can
never get their price until the
location of a large number of
people makes the ground of
greater value because of the in
creased production and greater
demand. But this increased
population and, producation can
. not come until owners are will
ing to sell at least a portion of
their ground at a very reasonable
price. A "dozen farmers with
large , holdings could join in
offering a portion of their land
at a very low figure and locate
from fifty to 250 families with
in a year. That number of new
families in a given section would
BO increase the value of the re
Tttaining land that there would
be great gain rather than loss.
Most land in this
be sold at a very low figure
fcnd still be sold at a very hand
tome advance over the cost price
and yalue of work put upon it
Ancl until land holders get out of
the idea that someone is going
to come along and pay a good
"stiff" price for their land there
wiirbe no great increase in the
DODulation of this countv: Manv
people came here this summer
and real estate men wore ' out
horses and vehicles and con
sumed many gallons of gasoline
in showing property, but few
bought. "In comparison with
prices in other sectiona, the land
is held at a figure that looks too
high to the average homeseeker.
Advertising advantages is r well
and good but these advantages
must be within - reach of , the
would-be investor. " If the ad
vantages of climate and produc
tion are offset by the : disadvan
tage of high land values, the
people brought here by advertis
ing can not, will not stay. There
has been little to warrant the
advance in price of land, other
than the expression of optimistic
views as to the future of this
country,' but the country can not
have a future unless property
holders are willing to share at
least a portion of large holdings
at a figure making immigration
possible. , No land holder should
be expected to sell any of his
ground at a loss or at less than a
fair profit but if he is willing to
Sell a portion of his holdings at
all it is not unfair to expect him
to offer it at a reasonable ad
vance on his money.

given strict orders to my men employed
to gather evidence to prosecute all tres
passers with gun or dog found on my
premises, and particularly to shoot and
kill all dogs found on the farms. So
that no one may be taken by surprise,
I publish this notice. , - .

PLAN TO TEACH IMMIGRANTS.'
Harvard Alumnus Said to Have Good" -Backing
For "Solution of Problem." ;
'Karl O. Nelson, a young Harvard ;
university alumnus, has worked out &
plan for the education of immigrants; .
arriving in Boston, which he thinks
will solve the problem of illiterates
and will enable foreigners, ignorant of"
English and without a definite trade,,
to become self supporting and pro
ducers. He is said to have the back
ing of Harvard university, the Pros
pect union, the Edda club, the Deutsche
vereiu, the Circolo Italiano, the Cercle
Francais and other organizations.
According to Mr. Nelson's plan, if art,
immigrant cannot speak English he
will be instructed in the language,,
and if he has no trade he will be-'
taught one. and work will be provided
for him. If he cares to advance he
will receive opportunity for a higher
technical education and a field fflundt
for his activities. - Those already here--'
will also have these opportunities and!,
a chance to learn higher branches C

New Idea In Egg Boiling.! '
Porcelain eggs that are hollow andtr
unscrew make the latest egg boilers.
They are of various sizes, according ass
the breakfaster wants one, two or three
eggs. In their usage the cook opens.
the real egg, drops its contents Into
the egg of porcelain, takes It off whe
it is soft, medium or hard, as required
and serves it in the 'porcelain that,
cooked it, set in a little silver stand. ,
The advantage of this novel egg boiler
Is that no bad eggs, but only good
ones,- need be boiled, and the service Is? .
achieved in a manner the least trouble-.
some nd the most appetizing.
