Come and take a look Someth Swe ing 0 fl u in o uitiii A NEW KIND OF POIITICS That Will Enrich the Whole American Northwest. Our stock ever.' is larger than 0 o OC3C DOC 30C 0 TEA I A PERFECT . BLEND OF . BLACK TEAS JILLS BROS. SAN FRANCISCO. CAL We recommend "Hilvilla" to all lovers of a strictly first class Black Tea as being the equal of, if not the superior, of any Black Tea on the market. Sold exclusively by PHELPS GROCERY CO. 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 Northwest. It seems that an inquisitive farmer asked Editor Willis of Minneapolis; "What are the poli tics of your paper?" He replies with this Ringing Declaration of Orange Judd Northwest Farmstead. 1. To make three bushels of grain grow where one grows now. 2. lo make forage crops grasses and pasture twice as good and four times as profitable as at present. 3. To make fruits, vegetables and other crops better in quality and profit. 4. To enable Northwestern farmers to make more and better crops of all kinds and larger profits. 5. To promote improved live stock until the Northwest furn ishes to the rest of the United States and to foreign countries a vastly larger surplus of meats, butter, cheese, egg s and manu factures therefrom. 6. . To reform distribution, banking and currency, so as to make universal more economic methods of marketing the pro ducts of American farms and factories, forests and mines, and m supplying our people s consum ing needs. 7. To wisely utilize the North west's natural resourcea so that they may yield handsome profits at present, and yet be conserved for future generations. 8. To improve the Northwest's highways and railroads, rivers and harbors, until they are ade quate to the needs of a mighty people. 9. To improve our schools until every young person in country or town may be trained in efficiency. health and character, and imbed with that knowledge and the ca pacity to use it. 10. To link more closely school and home, farm and factory, so that the one may more benefit the other. 11. To aid, in these and other ways, the Northwest to have fourfold its present population, each of whom shall enjoy "life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness" 12. Thus to make for a Great er .Nation through a ureater Northwest. Comment on the Above 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 can farmers for a single season ail to broduce a surplus of foods for market, and the economic fabric of the whole Occident would be upset! 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 ife. 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.

Mrs. Edward Hale and Family. S. W. Spencer, H. H. Hoffman, Guy Boyer and Thomas Brennan 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. - Dr. F.
