FARMERS THRIVE BEST

IS REPORT OF OFFICIAL.
Value of Haich Products Gains Faster
Thaa Coat ml Articles Purchased
WASHINGTON. Jan. 3. The farmer
has enjoyed greater prosperity than
any other individual in the country.
The value of the farm products has In
creased to a much greater extent than
t:ie cost of articles purchased by the
farmer. This is declared in a state
ment issued by Nat C. Murray, of the
Agricultural Department, which says:
"The purchasing power of the farmer
depends not only on the money value of
what he produces, but also upon the
money value of what he buys. From
lSa! to 109 the money value of an acre
of the farmer's crops increased 73.7 per
cent, but in tile same period the money
value of the articles usually purchased
by farmers bad Increased 121 per cent:
consequently, as a result of the greater
Increase in the price of what a farmer
sold than in the price of what he
bought the net increase in the purchas
ing power of the produce of an acre
was Tit per cent that is, one acre of
the farmer's crop in 1909 could buy 54
per cent more of the articles usually
bought by farmers than in 1899.
"In 1913 the value of an acre of the
farmer's crops averaged about 1.2 per
cent higher than In 1909, whereas the
value of articles bought by farmers had
advanced In the same time about 5.7
per cent: consequently as a result of
the greater increase In the price of
what the farmer buys than what he
sells the actual purchasing power of
one acre of the farmer's produce In
1913 was about 4.3 per cent less than
"Similar data for 1914 have not ytet
been secured, but It may be safely pre
sumed that the purchasing power of an
acre of the farmer's produce In 1(14 is
at least 5 per cent less than five years
ago. In short, there was a material
Increase in the purchasing power of
farmers from 1S9S to 1909. but since

A WINTER TONIC
Why is it that some people keep well
all Winter while others, less exposed to
cold and damp, suffer with folds, grip,
pleurisy, pneumonia and all the ills of
Thin blood and debility are the
causes of much sickness in Winter.
When the blood is thin and there Is
oxygen starvation in the tissues of the
body, poisons are retained that should
be eliminated and there Is a lowered

Rheumatism disappears when the
blood Is built up and does not return if
the blood is kept rich.
The after-effects of grip are never
cured until the blood is built up.
Dr. Williams' Pink Pills enrich the
blood and enable it to carry more
oxygen, to nourish the starved tissues
in debility, to soothe the inflamed
membranes In rheumatism, to quiet the
nerves in neuralgia and sciatica and to
expel the lingering germs after the
fever and influenza of grip have passed.
