An Iowa Farm Paper

paper to Dallas there has been a steady increase in the amount of business and the number of subscribers, and the plant we have is not adequate. The two papers are kindred in aim and the readers of both will be pleased at the enlargement and improvement of the papers. For the present the offices will continue at 365 and 367 Commerce Street.

"We mean to erect in the down-town section shortly a building which, with the equipment, will cost us about $40,000. It will be an up-todate newspaper building. We shall install a large press that will print on book paper from rolls with as great perfection and greater speed than the flat presses we are now using." -Dallas News.

The friends of Mr. J. C. Billingslea will be pleased to know that he is again at his desk and as good as new, after a siege of typhoid lasting about two months.

Any advertiser wishing to reach the best class of farm readers in Iowa can do so by using our columns. Our rates are low for the quantity and quality of circulation we are giving. Remember it is purely an Iowa farm circulation we are offering and there is no better agricultural state in the Union.

The annual session of the National Agricultural Press League was held at the Grand Pacific Hotel, Chicago, December 5th. The report of the Secretary and Executive Committee showed that the active membership of the League had been trebled during the year, and the report of the Treasurer that all bills, including the expenses of the committee sent by the League to appear before the Postal Commission, had been paid, and there was yet money in the treasury.

The following officers were elected to serve for the next year: President, James M. Pierce, Homestead, Des Moines, Iowa; Vice-president, M. W. Lawrence, Ohio Farmer, Cleveland, Ohio; Treasurer, B. F. Biliter, Farmers' Guide, Huntington, Ind. ; Secretary, John M. Stahl, Farmer's Call, Quincy, Ill. ; Executive Committee, A. C. Halliwell, Live Stock ri orld, Chicago, Ill.; J. H. Neff, Drovers' Telegram, Kansas City, Mo.; W. D. Hoard, Hoard's Dairyman, Fort Atkinson, Wis.; Norman J. Colman, Colman's Rural World, St. Louis, Mo.; William J. Thompson, Metropolitan & Rural Home, New York City; H. L. Simmons, American Farm News, Springfield, Ohio; and ex-officio, the President and Secretary.

A resolution was adopted opposing the present free seed distribution of the National Department of Agriculture. A committee, consisting of Pierce of the Homestead, Kennedy of the Metropolitan & Rural Home, and Simmons, of the American Farm News, was selected to submit to the League a plan to secure for farm papers the advertising of those not now using farm papers, but whose announcements should appear in the columns of farm and kindred papers.

The initiation fee was abolished, and the annual dues were fixed at $10.

Denatured Alcohol Small Distilleries Can be Established for $200 Internal Revenue Commissioner Yerkes, answering an inquiry recently as to how many gallons of denatured alcohol will approximately be needed in the industries for 1907, says:

"Having absolutely nothing to base an estimate upon, it is not possible for me to make an estimate as to the quantity of denatured alcohol that will be consumed in that way. No formal applications have as yet been made by distilleries for approval of denaturing bonded warehouses. Such applications could not be filed for the reason that the proper blanks have not as yet been placed in the hands of collectors. At present there are forty distilleries in the United States manufacturing what might be termed commercial alcohol."

In reply to a criticism of the law on the ground that regular distilleries only can engage in the manufacture of denatured alcohol, enabling the whiskey trust to secure practically a monopoly, Mr. Yerkes said:

"This office knows of no process by which alcohol can be manufactured except by distillation, and as regular distilleries are the only kind recognized by the law, alcohol manufactured under the supervision of this department must be manufactured at regular distilleries. There are absolutely no limitations as to the size of a distillery that can be operated under the law. There are over 1,000 distilleries in operation now, at each of which the daily spirit producing capacity is less than 30 gallons. Many of these were set up on an outlay of less than $200. So far as the internal. revenue laws are concerned, either in theory or practice, the smallest and crudest distillery can produce alcohol, if, as a business proposition, it is deemed advisable to do so. The small distilleries have always been treated by this department with the same consideration as the larger ones.

German farmers are good farmers and therefore have plenty of money to spend.

But more than this, they make loyal customers. Once get their trade, and they are yours as long as you take care of them properly.

That's part of the German temperament.

And it is not only the head of the family that will heed your appeal in the Acker und Gartenbau — you'll interest every member.

He will be required to give a bond, the effect of which is to prevent him from defrauding the Government of the tax on any distilled spirits produced by him. He will be required to establish a distillery warehouse; to deposit the spirits produced by him in this warehouse; to establish a denaturing bonded warehouse, and to tax pay or denature, just as he may wish, the alcohol produced by him. All of this will be done under governmental supervision, but the Government pays for this supervision. The manufacturer of alcohol does not bear one cent of it. There is no objection to a farmer manufacturing his alcohol in his back yard' provided he wants to establish a distillery there. If


will take the trouble to investigate you will find, in my opinion, that the laws and regulations relating to the manufacture of alcohol in Germany do not differ to any great extent from the laws and regulations in this country.”
