O whom do yon appeal for help In time of trouble or sickness? On whom would you depend If dread misfor tune laid Its heavy hand on you? Your neighbors? Ex actly. Man is a gregarious animal, and he naturally cares for relatives, friends and ac quaintances rather than strangers. Social affairs de pend entirely on acquaint anceship, and business affairs are controlled to large extent by the same element It would be better If business and friendship were still more closely linked. I f you would depend on your neighbors In time of ad versity why not depend on them In prosperity? Isn't the man whose hand you would like to grasp tbe man to whom you oaght to hand the dollar that you have to spend? Why send It away to a mall order house which would be Interested In a death In your family merely because It offered a possible chance to sell you a tomb stone or a crape band for your hat? You know your neighbors are reliable, that they can be depended on, that they would come to your aid with sympathy or material help ■hould the occasion arise. Then why not show that yon appreciate their good quali ties by doing business with them regularly and aa a mat ter o f habit? They know you and are Intereeted In you.

In the early days of the exploita tion of various reaping machines s field demonstration, usually com petitive, i u a necessary occur rence. H. N. Caaaon in “ The Ro mance of the Reaper” tells the fo l lowing atory of William N. White- ley, “ the Charlemagne of the har- veet field:” He was as tall as a sapling and aa strong as a tree. As a professor in the great school of agriculture he has never been surpassed. He could outtalk, outwork and generally out wit the men who were sent against him. He was a whole exhibition in himself. “ I ’ve seen Bill Whiteley racing his horsea through the grain and leaning over with hia long arms to ick the mice’s neats from just in ront of the knife,” said an old Ohio settler. The feat that first made Whiteley famous was performed at James town, 0., in 1867. Hia competitor was doing as good work as he was, whereupon he sprang from his seat, unhitched one horse and finished his couree with a single surprised steed pulling the heavy machine. His competitor followed suit and succeeded fully as well. This enraged Whiteley, who at that time was as powerful as a young Hercules. “ I can pull that reaper myself!” he shouted, turning his second hone looee and yoking hia big ahoulden into the harness. Such a thing had never been done before and has never been done since, but it is tru&rihat in the pas sion of the moment Whiteley was filled with auch strength that he ran the reaper from one aide of th* field to the other, cutting a full swath, a deed that, had he done it in ancient Greece, would hare plac ed him among the immortals. That ten minutes in a horse col lar made $2,000,000 for Whiteley. His antagonist, Benjamin H. Ward er, was filled with admiration for Whiteley’s prowess and at once pro posed that they should quit fighting and work in harmony. “ Give me the right to make your reaper and I ’ll pay you $5 apiece for all I can sell, said Warder. “ I t ’s a bargain,” responded White- ley. And so there aroee the first consolidation in the harvester busi ness. f Honorable gears.
