FADS AND FANCIES.
From nearly every form of
foolishness those of good sense
may learn something. We. are
constantly forced to contemplate
some nonsensical fad or whimsi
Sometimes these bits of fool
ishness are carried so far as to
act as a boomerang for the fad
dist and his sanity is questioned;
on the other hand, there is now
and then a fad in vogue among
those "who essay the nonsensical
that really does possess some re
deeming qualities. That which
is good people of common sense
retain and profit therefrom.
Feds and fancies are like
theories. They must be analized,
proved or disapproved, accepted
or rejected. The people who
start fads as a general 4 thing
have nothing better to occupy
their time or at least this is the
only way they do occupy it and
if we cannot profit in some de
gree from their foolishness they
will have lived in vain.
At present we are living in an
age of fads, fancies, theories,
"isms," and goodness knows
what not. At present the peo
ple are in a fever to build up the
race, particularly from a physi
cal standpoint. The outlandish
practices of some advocates of
physical culture are killing rather
than otherwise, and if those
pursuing them were not possess
ed of extraordinary vitality death
would have claimed them long
We have a thousand and one
things advertised in the way of
health foods, which are really of
no more worth than dried tur
nips, but which, on account of
their labels, sell like thunder.
But from all this foolishness
there is left the impress of a de
sire for more culture and greater
physical development. In this
desire we all acquiesce. It tends
to attract the minds of sensible
people to a channel by which
higher development, mentally
and physically, may be obtain
ed. In so far it is a good thing
for all of us that we have what
ii commonly called a "faddist."'
In contemplating the possibili
ties of human development, from
a physical standpoint only, we
cannot help wondering what
would be the ell?t on the race
if we were experimented on
properly? Suppose some human
wizard were to "bob up" and
start to wozk with all the enthu
siasm of Luther Burbank, the
man who has almost created a
new plant world, what would
happen? This is only a fancy.
The claim has been made that
it costs this country four hun
dred million dollars annually for
sm ; of our citizens to travel in
Europe. This seems an enor
mous .sum, so let us presume it
is o ily a quarter so large, or one
hundred million dollars. This of
itself is quite a bit of money to
pay for the good it does us.
The average parson who does a
'.Iyer" in the old world goes more
for the notoriety to be gained
than anything else. But this is
particularly their own business,
There are many commendable
rp.isnns frr o-ojn-r rr Eiivodp

are performing what may almost
be termed a duty. 1 hen, there
is a class who iro to studv, and !
this, too, is U These come
in contact vdtii new ideas, cus-J
toms, works of zrt, science and
beauty, and return to their na
tive land with something for
their people. They mingle with
the people" of the lands in which
they travel, learn their customs,
see how they live, discover their
possibilities. Even .the aspira
tions "of those of foreign lands
are brought to light, as well as
their hopes, fears and preju
dices. Ad of this is of value to those
who stay at home; the money
expended by a person on such a
tour is well spent. But those
who go for notoriety simply to
boast of the fact later when in
the midst of some social set have
simply cost the country so much
money and nothing more. He
who goes aVoad for what the
trip does for himself or his fel
lows has done wisely, but he
who goes on some excursion sees
nothing, so to speak, and no one
profits from the trip save those
in charge of the transportation
and certain Europeans who prey
upon well-to-do Americans.
What Corvallisites are Doing at

A Valuable Agent
The glycerine employed in Dr. Pierce'a
medicines greatly enhances the medi
cinal properties which it extracts .-nd
holds in solution much better than alco
hol would. It also possesses medicinal
properties of its own, bcins a valuable
demulcent, nutriiivo, antiseptic and anti
fcrmont. It adds greatly to the efficacy
of the Black Chcrrybark, Golden Seal
root, Stono root and Queen's root, con
tained in "Golden Medical Discovery" In
subduing chronic, or lingering couchs,
bronchial, throat and lung affections,
for all of which these agents are recom
mended by standard medical authorities.
In all cases where there is a wasting
away of flesh, loss of appetite, with
weak stomach, as in the early stages cf
consumption, there can be 110 doubt that
glycerine acts as a valuable nutritivo and
aid3 the Golden Seal root. Stone root,
Queen's root and Black Cherrytark in

and bringing about a healthy condition
of the whole system. Of course, it must

stages. It will cure very severe, obstin
ate, ciironic cougns, broucinai ana Jarynr
goaf troubles, and chronic sore threat

not so effective. It is in the lingering
coughs, or thoso of kwsg standing, even
when accomDanicd by bleeding from
lungs, that it has performed its most
marvelous cures. Send for and read the

If you have 125 loads of manure to spread and yon are going to plant 25 scres'of corn or wheat,
or have a 25 acre meadow we will tell you how you can increase the value of your crop this year
from $4.00 to $8.00 per acre or more than enough to pay for a spreader. We issued a 48-page book
entitled "Practical Experience With Barnyard Manures," which explains the whole situation.
Our Plan is not a theory. It is an actual fact, backed np by actual experiments extending over
a period of 18 years. To give you an idea of what this book contains, we show results of experi
ments made with various crops where 5 loads of manure were spread per acre by the old method,
and 5 loads by the new method, on corn ground. Tbe latter shows a gain of 84.80 per acre. On
another field and in another state, it shows a gain of $5.60 per acre, and on a clover and timothy
meadow, a gain of S8.00 per acre. -
This Book will be sent free to anyone writing ns. It is worth $100.00 to yon, but it won't cost
yon a cent. If it doesn't do you any good, it won't do you any barm. Write us now and let us mail
it to you. It is brimming full of valuable information.

can by hand. Spreads the largest load in 2 to 4
minutes. Makes the same amount of manure go
three times as fur and produce better results;
makes all manure fine and immediately avail

axles are the same length and wheels track;

and throws the machine in gear at the same time.
It can then be thrown in and out of gear without
