Why, the butter of Minnesota creameries sells for over $25,000,000 a year, and twelve

years ago hardly a creamery in the state. We hark back to twelve years ago because that was the beginning of time

so far as we were concerned in this subject. That is when we bought The Northwestern Agriculturist with its 9000 monthly circulation, and changed it the same year to 9000 semi-monthly, which has grown, in spite of all our blunders and timidity, to over a third of a million a month.

On Friday evening, April 21st, Mr. Robert Lee Dunn, of Collier's Weekly, delivered be. fore the Press Club of Chicago, his now famous lecture, “First in Korea."

Mr. Dunn started for the scene of hostilities some time before war was declared, and was so fortunate as to be at Chemulpo at the time the two Russian war ships were de. stroyed by the Japanese fleet. His series of pictures includes the battle and destruction of the two ships, and are said to be among the finest of all naval pictures ever taken. The lecture gives a new view of the great conflict. Mr. Dunn came to the Chicago Press Club from the New York Press Club, where his lecture was received with the greatest enthusi

That Club fraternally tendered the services of Mr. Dunn to the Chicago Press Club, and the tender was accepted with gratitude by the Board of Directors.

TheOklahoma Farm Journal

There is a reason for its remarkable success.

It is authority in the Two Territories and Farmers and Stock Raisers look to it for guidance and

help. It's a pleasing story and they all tell
it. We could print hundreds just like these:

"It has been brought to the attention of the Department in a number of cases that Publishers of newspapers

are presenting their publications for mailing with so-called supplements which are manifestly illegal. These alleged supplements consist of calendars; sheet music; patterns; blocks of post cards; series of cut-out animal pictures; animal masks; plastographs; cut-out dolls, soldiers and naval vessels; circulars; hand-bills; special detached advertisements; card-board spectacles; sheets containing disks of soluble paint to be used in coloring outline drawings, etc., etc."

He rules according to Section 457 of the Postal Laws and Regulations, that "by no reasonable interpretation of the law can such articles as those mentioned be held to be "germane" to a newspaper, or to be "matter supplied in order to complete" what is left incomplete in the paper itself. The privilege accorded to a publisher to mail his newspaper

the subsidized second-class rates carries with it no right to those rates for any other matter than the newspaper itself and such supplemental matter as is really "germane" and otherwise meets the requirements of law. Upon other matter sent in the mails the publisher must pay the same rate as any other citizen."

He recognizes that these practices do not originate in a purpose to defraud the government of its lawful revenue, but are moreover doubtless due to competition, and the following is the ruling:

"Postmasters will therefore promptly notify all publishers of newspapers in their respective cities that until September 1,

1905, their publications, even though containing such inclosures, will be accepted at the regular secondclass rates. They will, however, advise them that such alleged 'supplements' as are herein mentioned do not meet the legal requirements of ‘mailable matter of the second-class;' and that on and after September 1, 1905, the legal rate will be charged upon such matter according to its character."

About the meanest man on earth is the one who steals another's brains. By this I do not mean the man who takes another's ideas and improves them, but the one who trades on the brains, courage and risk taken by another man in creating some great industry.

The most familiar type of this sort is the “substituter," the man who tries to substitute some other article on which he makes a large profit for the standard and well-advertised article. When the proprietor of some standard remedy on which he has spent the best years of his life and hundreds of thousands of dollars in advertising it, and built up a large business, persuades you through his advertisements to try that remedy, he stakes his reputation and his
