BELIEVE in them. I get so many of them, however, from FARMER'S MAIL AND BREEZE advertisers that I admit I may be prejudiced. At any rate I think so much of them that I print one or more on the front page of my big farm weekly each issue. I reproduce

below a few of the kind I get from leading advertisers all new and all except one unsolicited. If after reading them you are not satisfied, and will write me, I will agree to send you more unsolicited testimonials than any other publisher of a farm paper is able to pro. duce. ---ARTHUR CAPPER. Publisher.

An Advertisement that Brought too Many

"Last summer I had 2,000 bushels of a new seed wheat to sell. I placed a little fourinch advertisement in the SOUTHERN AGRICULTURIST, for three insertions, August 1st and 15th and September 1st, and not only sold all of my wheat at $2.00 per bushel, but had to return $900 worth of checks after I had sold out. The orders came from every state in the South, from some Northern States and from Mexico.

Remarkable Paper in Remarkable Field The Kansas City Journal Particularly Well Adapted to

Reach Representative Homes in the Southwest When the leading business men in a city of over a third of a million people take time to write a publisher or call him on the phone to say how much they have enjoyed reading his paper, the experience is a remarkable one, and, you will doubtless agree, is worthy more than the passing thought of an advertiser.

Such was the experience which marked the appearance of the first of the Kansas City Journal's six big Sunday issues, with its circulation of 100,000 copies, without an increase in rate.

So signal has been the success of these issues, that the Journal has carried from 17,000 to 20,000 more lines of display advertising each Sunday than any other Kansas City paper and an increasing volume of classified advertising.

So successful was the recent announcement cf the Western Farm Lands Company in exploiting a big tract near Denver for cultivation of Dry Farming, that the morning following its appearance 38 inquiries were received in the first mail. One of the men in this company was connected with the Irrigated Farm Lands Co., of Denver, which through the exclusive use of the Journal secured 18,110 inquirics in ten months.

To prove of greater service to many of the advertisers who have been using the Weekly edition of the Journal a very attractive combination rate was recently made as showing how the use of the Weekly, which is a farm publication, can be made to dovetail with the Daily we cite a few of the special feature articles which appeared in the first of the big Sunday issues:


"BAD DAYS FOR RCSTLERS," showing how brand inspectors at the stock yards detect stolen cattle.

ANNUAL SEED NUMBER Circulation will be 65,000

Forms close six days in advance of date. Every advertiser of seeds, plants, nursery stock and garden tools, ought to use liberal space in this issue.

Besides news of Racing Meets and Stock Shows.

It will interest our readers to know that the founder of the Journal, Col. Bob Van Horn, is "the Father of Oklahoma,” also that one of the Journal readers, M. L. Turner of Oklahoma City, went to Washington a few months ago and surprised eastern financiers by purchasing $3,000,000 of Philippian securities, outbidding Wall Street in securing the plum.

Other facts about Oklahoma may be of intrest, such for instance, that so marked is the intelligence of the 715,000 people living there that only 51/2 per cent is illiterate; also that Wm. E. Curtis stated in a recent article in the Chicago Record-Herald, that "unless it be one of the Scanainavian countries there is no section on earth that has so large a percentage of home owners as Oklahoma.”

In the New State, which is so large that it could cover up Vermont, New Hampshire, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, New Jersey and one-half of Connecticut, every acre is yielding a bountiful harvest, the principal cereals alone reaching 69,080,239 bushels the past year.

Happily, realizing the unusual value that it is offering advertisers, 275,000 circulation for the combination Weekly and Sunday rate of 48 cents a line,--the Journal has prepared very comprehensive literature which it sends to prospective advertisers on request.


Satisfied Advertisers

The best endorsement of a medium

is satisfied advertisers.



Mr. H. C. Wallace, Manager Wallaces' Farmer, Des Moines, Iowa, delivered an ad. dress before the Postal Commission of the Senate and House at the sitting in New York in October.

This address dealt mainly, with the question "How the Present Law is Violated and Wherein it Needs to be Amended.” Mr. Wallace handled the subject in a clear and convincing manner.

His address has been published in booklet form, and we quote from the preface of this booklet as follows:

"The publisher who gives away his paper, or who accepts subscriptions at a price below the cost of white paper and postage, thereby confesses that his publication is so lacking in merit that no considerable number of people will subscribe and pay a fair price for it. Instead of making a good paper that people will want and pay for, he forces a poor paper upon an unwilling public, with the aid of Uncle Sam.

"The people of the country, the publishers of really educational publications, the patrons of their advertising columns, and the Govern

Advertisers are satisfied with returns. Every reason why returns should be satisfactory.

Look at the map at the top of this advertisement. That's where Farmers' Tribune circulates. If you know where the center of farm prosperity is, you'll recognize it by this map. If you are able to pick a good farm paper by its contents-both editorial and advertising – you'll put Farmers' Tribune down as "a winner" when you see it.

That it pays advertisers handsomely, we can prove beyond a doubt. Send for the evidence, please.

Circulation 45,000 copies weekly, guaranteed. Rate 20 cents per agate line.

Success Magazine Secures Mr. Colver Mr. Frederick L. Colver, who is well known in advertising and publishing circles, and was one of the founders of the Periodical Pub. lishers' Association, serving as its secretary for three years, and now as its president, has acquired a substantial interest in the Success Magasine. He has just been chosen as secretary, and as a member of the Board of Directors of the Success Company, and, on January 1st, took active charge as advertising director.

Mr. Colver had this to say of his new connection: “Since I sold the American Magasine last summer, I have received quite a number of attractive business proposals in the publishing line. The one that interested me most was the Success Magazine, because the more I examined into the proposition, the more really remarkable seemed its growth in cir. culation and earning power. The quality of its circulation also impressed me most favorably, and when I found that its monthly circulation of 300,000 was not a varying figure, but had been sustained for three years, I became en: thusiastic over the proposition. The Success Magazine has a healthy and growing news. stand circulation, but the chief strength of the magazine lies in its large subscription list, which embraces the best class of magazine readers. My faith grew stronger in the magazine as I noted that, for several years, its yearly earnings had exceeded $600,000, and that the property was making a comfortable profit. I found the Success Magasine already a big periodical of national influence and circulation, and a property with which I am proud to be identified. The magazine was founded by Dr. Marden some nine years ago, purely as an inspirational periodical, but it has long since outgrown the original editorial plan, and is today really one of the great magazines of America for the whole family. While I have had active work to do in all the departments of the various magazines with which I have been identified, the advertising department has always been my favorite branch of publishing work, and I am glad to resume actively the management of this department of magazine publishing."

The Advertising Department of Success Magazine will be in charge of Mr. Frederick L. Colver, advertising director, with Frank

GROWING It's an indication of vigor, when an eighteen-year old paper continues to grow.

In accepting the resignation of Mr. Lynn S. Abbott as Director and Advertising Manager of Success Magazine, the publishers desire to express in the strongest and most emphatic way possible their appreciation of the unusual value of Mr. Abbott's services to the company during the past seven years. The present management purchased Success--then two years old-in December, 1899, inheriting a circulation of about 60,000 and an advertising patronage of less than $15,000 per an. num. Within the next fifteen months the circulation was increased to nearly 250,000 and within the following year to over 300,000, since which time the publishers have held it steadily at this circulation, squeezing out all of the poorer and cheaper classes of circulation.

Of this initial rapid increase of circulation, Mr. Abbott took immediate and signal advantage, brilliantly and courageously putting into effect a series of rate increases, and se. curing a constantly broadening clientage of the best advertisers in the country, so that the following remarkable record of increase in net advertising revenues was made: 1900
