Well meaning efforts to induce
Bottlers to come to this section of the
country for the purposo of engaging
In agricultural efforts will avail lit
tle, until tho farmers who are hero
now becomo prosperous. Then It
will bo impossible to keep settlers
So many tlroos, It has appeared,
tho men engaged in tho promotion
of development have looked on one
side of tho problem only. They have
figured out the story of a few pros
perous ranchers and have with ad
vertising folders set forth, the facts
concerning these Individual cases
using them as bait to bring others to
tho field.
In normal times that mothod is,
perhaps, Justifiable. It has been
used effectively and many people
have been brought to sparsely set
tled regions who mado good and aid
ed In the upbuilding of tho country.
Dut now wo are in a different con
dition. Few of tho ranchers in the
west engaged in ono crop production
aro prosperous. AH agriculture
noods concentrated effort and Im
proved marketing conditions, as well
as bettor production methods.
Tho need of tho hour is a well
conceived plan for bettering tho con
ditions of tho farmers who aro hero
now. A wider varloty of crop pro
duction will in part solvo the prob
lorn. Means must bo secured of
preparing tho crops raised so that
thoy can stand shipment to tho dis
tant consuming market.
Herein lies tho great benefit pos
sible from tho Introduction on a
broader scopo of tho dairy industry,
It Is both a principal Industry as
woll as an auxiliary to field crop pro.'

Butter fat can be produced hero at a
lower cost than in Wisconsin what

the bankers, the professional men of

tho ranchers.
And when, tho ranchers hero are
prosperous this land will bo as In
viting to the men of the east and
middle west who aro seeking new
fields, as all America has been for
tho ambitious citizens of Europe.
Our fathers came to America from
Europe because they knew that in
theso United States the opportunity
for bettering their condition' was
present because Americans were
prosperous. Residents of the crowd
ed sections of our land today will
follow the same impulse to move
wostward to this valley when our
ranchers aro prosperous. It should
thon be tho constant and ever press
ing purposo of tho business men of
this region to promote the prosper
ity of the farmer hero now, and let
his prosperity be tho magnet which
will draw others and thus add to
tho growth and development of the
entire region. We need not look
for development until our farmeVs
aro prosperous. ,

Many Mllllont of Acres Have Changed
Hands Sines the Signing of
the Armistice.
Since the armistice almost 4,500,000
acres of Scottish land has changed
hands, or practically a quarter of the
country, reportB the London Times
correspondent at Glasgow.
During 1021 over 000,000 ncres were
sold, against 800,000 In 1020. Although
prices have fallen, fully 5,000,000
($26,000,000) must have been lnrohed
In last year's sales, and the total
turnover since the armistice Is esti
mated at 52,500,000 ($202,500,000).
The decrease in estate sales last
year shows that the "boom" Is on the
wane, for the people who made war
fortunes and who were the estate
agents' best clients now find their
wealth diminishing us quickly as It
grew. Trade depression has,, of
course, left Its mark on the estate
market, with the result that prices for
estates are nothing like what they
were a few years ago.
Estate agents, however, hold out a
hopeful prospect for this year. It Is
expected that the cessation of large
buying will continue for several
months, probably until the next budget
proposals are known, hut that this
will be followed by a revival. Im
proved conditions In the Industrial
world would give a fillp to the estate
market, but agents are confident that
even without the Impetus, good busi
ness will be done next year In the
buying of land.

ago. He thought little of It "and
went deer hunting. Upon returning

boon kicked by a mulo previous to

and had killed somo sheep and chick
ens. Stato authorities upon exam
ing tho headof the dog, thought per

from rabies. Mr. Browning, who Is
receiving medical attention, at Vale,
howovor seems to be improving.

Blind Beggar Refused What Most
People Would Consider Most
Precious of Life's Gifts.
"Buy a pencil, please." Tills was
the monotonous sing-song plaint of a
ragged blind man on a prominent
downtown corner. A Detroit million
aire heard It. It gripped at his heart
strings. He decided to help cure the
poor victim.
A specialist of International repute
was summoned. He said he could re
store the pencil peddler's sight by a
delicate and expensive operation. The
millionaire told him to go ahead. Then
the blind man amazed the philan
thropist and the physician by refusing
to be cured.
"I want to be blind," he said. "If I.
got my sight back I'd have to go back
to hard work. Please don't give me
back my bight. I'm happy this way. I
make a lot of money through m?
blindness. It's easy work. I'm happy
and I want to stay this way."
The millionaire then had a watch
set on the happy victim. He found
that every evening at the end of the
peddler's day's work, a handsomely
gowned, pretty young woman drove up
to his corner In an expensive motor
car, bundled the peddler Into the car,
and whisked him off to one of those
Jazz places of song and dance. The
blind man was having n high old time
of It every night.
When he tried later to have his li
cense renewed, the millionaire pre
vented It.

Pineapples Have Strange Cousins.
Tho pineapple belongs to a very In
teresting family of plants, called the
Bromellads, all of which are purely
American, and none of which were
known In the old world until Import
ed from the new. Most of these are
natives of Brazil.
The pineapple Is the only member
of the family that produces a large
fruit formed by thickening Its tlowcr
axU and by Inclosing Its seeds In
fleshy bracts. It Is Also peculiar In
tho fact that It grows on the earth,
Instead of up In tho branches of trees
or on rocks, as do nearly all Its rela
tives. These are like the orchids In
many respects; they draw no suste
nance from the earth through their
roots but live on rain. This they catch

Facts About Cyclones.
From the study of clouds an official
of the weather bureau concludes that
the ordinary cyclones that traverse
our country from west to east are not
morn, than two or three miles In depth,
although their diameter Is nfttny hun
dreds of miles. In other words, their
motion does not affect tho upper re
gions of the atmosphere. In the case
of hurricanes he finds that the depth
Is greater, amounting to as uiuch as
Ave or sis miles. But higher currents
blow directly across the c clonic and
untl-eyclonlc areas which produce
storms and fair weather at the sur
face of the earth. Somo of this In
vestlgator's conclusions upset formei

The former grows In certain trop

fruit. It appoara to have a decided
distaste for dust, and when a little

respiratory organs of tho plant Inflate
and the dust is expelled with a curi

We aro not told tho name of either
plant and doubtlosa they are closely
