pages will be embellished with handsome and helpful illustrations and will cover kitchen and market gardening, small fruit culture, truck farming, green house and hot bed plants, flowers, etc.

This issue is different from other issues of these valuable publications in that it will be kept as a matter of reference; aud for this reason its advertising pages are of far more value to seedsmen, nurserymen, and dealers in plants than the mere circulation indicates, even though measured in the ordinary way. The 210,000 copies that will be circulated is a great advertising bargain. The forms for this issue close January 25th.

"GOOD CITY.'' TEXAS. In the Galveston Daily News of December 11, appears an account of a proposed experiment farm to be established in Montgomery county, Texas, by Mr. Solon L. Goode, of the American Farmer, Indianapolis, Indiana.

According to this account, “Goode City" is to be established on a new branch of the Gould Railway System, which is to be built to exploit an agricultural and oil proposition near Houston.

Mr. Goode expects to have an experimental farm near the proposed city, and if plans are carried out as indicated in the article, the project will prove of great benefit to all concerned.

Regarding the proposed city, we quote from the article named above:

"Goode City is to be built upon a unique plan. The town is to be laid out with a circle in the center and the streets intersecting each other at right angles. Beginning one block distant from the circle, four avenues are to traverse the city from northeast to southwest and from northwest to southeast.

"No one will be permitted to erect a dwelling in the town or country or business house in the town unless the house shall be painted. Every dwelling will have its yard decorated with flowers, shrubbery or vines, and rural homes are to have similar adornment, and as far as possible graveled or other ornamental walks.

"It goes without saying that only the most improved machinery and farm implements will be employed at the experimental station."

"Mr. Goode and his family will spend

sections of the country furnish information of great value to merchants or manufacturers who are anxious to know in just what sections it will pay them best to seek for trade.

The year 1904 has been a very prosperous one generally; still, there are certain sections favored above others. Among these are the Dakotas. Indeed, South Dakota again leads all other states in the per capita production of new wealth for the year 1904.

The following summary from the Fourth Annual Review of the Secretary of the State Historical Society of South Dakota during 1904 will be of interest to advertisers.

Total production of South Dakota for the year 1904: Wheat, 24,150,00%) bushels. .$15,939,000 Corn, 53,532,000 bushels.

14,721,000 Barley, 17,303,000 bushels. 4,671,000 Oats, 33,480,000 bushels.

8,000,000 Rye, 2,310,000 bushels.

1,386,000 Flax, 2,000,000 bushels.

2,100,000 Potatoes, gardens and fruit. 4,125,000 Hay

14,000,000 Dairy and creamery.

6,900,000 Eggs and poultry.

5,000,000 Live stock

29,350,000 Wool and hides.

1,500,000 Gold, minerals and stone... 9,000,000

Total for 1904.

.$116,792,000 As the population of the State is placed at 460,000, the per capita of wealth production is $253.90. This is enormous and plainly indicates that here is a section where advertisers should eagerly seek for trade. That there is money in abundance to be spent is evident. Especially is this true of farmers, and happily for the adyertiser the means for doing this are better than ordinary.

The Dakota Farmer, published at Aberdeen, S. D., with a paid circulation of 33,000 subscribers confines its circulation to North and South Dakota, and is a medium of great value. There are other good farm papers circulating in this prosperous field, but the one named is undoubtedly the best one medium for the Dakotas.

Published monthly in the form of a 4-page circular, 9 x 12. No advertising matter. Subscription price, 50c per year.

The Prairie Farmer

The Four Track News is a live one. Every page full of snap and vim. The editor knows how to cater to the average American reader. The word "cater" just fits the case. A momentary glance at the bill of fare by an epicure tells him whether the kitchen is presided over by a "chef" or a hash frier, There are certain bills of fare that make one feel as dyspeptic as the pictures of Thomas Carlyle look, and others that make him feel as hearty and happy as Publisher Daniels of the Four Track News looks when he is presiding at a banquet of the Sphinx Club. The bill of fare is not the whole thing but when the food "stacks up" with the bill that smacks of a “chef," then one knows that the chef is there all right. The editor of the Four Track News is a sure enough literary "chef." The 120,000 delighted
