A brand new kind of "politics"
has shown up. But it isn't
politics at all, in the sense that
the word is usually used. In
stead, it is a platform for the re
generation of every farm in the
eight states of the American
It seems that an inquisitive
farmer asked Editor Willis of
Minneapolis; "What are the poli

is not needed; each plank speaks
for itself. But you won't fihd
any of our planks in the platform
of any political party.
Yet how much more important
is Northwest Farmstead s plat
form! just think a bit, and you
will see how true is our statement.
For all the candidates for office
might not miraculously disappear,
congress and legislatures might
not meet for a couple of years.
Yet the United States and the
world would go right along with
scarcely a ripple. But let Ameri

Soil and seas and forest support
the world. Better farming
means better living and better
times for all and this means,
also, that people shall "get into
gear with nature." or in tune
with the infinite, and enjoy the
harmony of body, mind and soul
that is the realest thing in this
So we fancy pretty much all
our folks up here will say amen
to Northwest Farmstead's plat
form. Now let's all pitch in to
work it out. For God helps those
who help themselves.

formed a party that hiked out to
the mountains in the vicinity of
the old Hamilton mill bright and
early Sunday morning with no
other purpose in view than that
of landing a big buck deer that
was supposed to be staked out in
that vicinity and awaiting the ar
rival of these "sports" that he
might be led to the slaughter..
The professor was the only real
hunter of the bunch as it trans
pired, and he bagged some game.
It is reported, too, that he got
lost in going round the mountain,,
but this is forgiven and forgotten
he got the game. But it is also
reported by others of the bunch
that the professor became greatly
excited and forgot that a buck
deer is supposed to have horns
the one he got had none and these
fellows are mean enough to say
that his deer turned out to be a.
Jersey calf. We can't vouch for
the truthfulness of this story,,
but it must be so. There is noth
ing like getting game when you.
go after it. -
