Henry Wallace recently took strong ground in Wallaces' Farmer against buying stock in "wild cat" schemes, such as oil companies, mining companies and land companies. He says he has been informed by reliable authority that about $1,000,000 has gone out of Des Moines and that but one man had made any money, and he lost in a second deal all he made in the first. Wallaces' Farmer does not accept advertisements for stock companies offering to sell stock, and Mr. Wallace warns

his readers against all schemes that promise great returns.

The Farmers Voice

The following letter shows what an advertiser thinks of the paper. It was written of his own volition, without prompting of any kind:

My attention has been called by the checking clerk to an article on page two of your issue of April 30, entitled "As to Whiskey Advertisements," which so fully and thoroughly agrees with our views on the matter in ques. tion that we cannot refrain from expressing our appreciation and approval of the stand that you take in the matter.

We have been reading with much satisfaction the editorials in the Farmers Voice and have been much pleased with the high moral tone, the apparent reliability of the information and the good boiled down facts contained in them.

For our part, in our business experience, we have made it a rule to turn down all papers as advertising mediums which took into their columns dirty or demoralizing advertising, as we have had conscientious scruples in regard to encouraging such pipers, when there are plenty of good, clean papers in which our advertisements can appear in good company. You are doing the right thing.

Yours sincerely, (Signed) MILNE MFG. CO. Monmouth, 111.

In retiring Mr. Cooper expresses his appreciation of the many favors he has received from the farm and poultry press of the country and asks the continued friendship of his editorial friends for the new company. Mr. Cooper is probably personally acquainted with a larger number of the poultrymen of this country than any other man who has been identified with the incubator business. He is one of the oldest manufacturers of incubators and built up a large trade in them, extending his operations to foreign countries.
