Prosperous Farmers

In the Wheat Belt

We have heard that some people in the East have heard that some "experts" in the Northwest have heard that some farmers' wheat crops this year are short crops, compared with last year.


H. V. Jones, An Expert

in Minneapolis, who is always so conservative that he looks through the telescope with his eyes at the big end, and comes the nearest of anyone who breathes Northwestern ozone, to being a pessimist, declares that the wheat crop of 1904 in Minnesota and the two Dakotas amounts to only

128,000,000 Bushels

or 15,000,000 less than in 1903. Let us therefore accept that estimate as the worst possible showing. Now look at the market: “No. 2 Northern" (which is the standard grade of the market always) is selling in Minneapolis at $1.14 to $1.18 a bushel, while even

Rejected Wheat Is Worth $1.00

And has sold this year as high as $1.12 per bushel. Assume, therefore, the worst possible phase of the situation. Imagine every bushel of this year's crop to be "rejected" grade, and the crop is still worth $1.00 a bushel, or a total of $128,000,000. Now, assume (to be ridiculously conservative'') that every bushel last year graded "No. 2 Northern;" refer to last year's market at this time and observe that it was worth only 80 cts. a bushel. Last year's crop was 15,000,000 bus, larger than this year's and amounted to 143,000,000 bushels, which at 80 cents, made the crop worth only $114,000,000. The crop is still almost entirely Held By the Farmers and they get the benefit of the big prices. Therefore this year's poor crop" brings farmers of Minnesota and Dakotas over

This is based, remember, upon the most pessimistic report issued by any authority whatever. The bove refers to wheat only. Everybody concedes that all other crops, hay, corn, vegetables, everything else--are away ahead of the average. In many cases they rank as "bumper crops. These are indisputable facts. They need no argument behind them to prove the great prosperity of the farmers in the field covered by The Northwestern Agriculturist. It is one of the best fields in America for the advertiser this fall, and as The

of space to be used in the Wisconsin Agriculturist during

the coming fall and winter.

over the records of the Raoine Hatcher Company they show
the result of an expenditure of less than $250 in your

medium last season from which they sotually sold over
$3000 worth of inoubators and broodors. They further

show that they made sales to a little over four out of

every ten inquiries, which is considered a very high per-
centage. We congratulate you on suoh a fine showing.
