New prices on the various articles made at stillwater, with the reduc- tions from the 1921 price, are an- nounced as follows: The 1922 price, f. o. b. Stillwater. for a 6 foot binder and straight pole is $133.00, making a reduction under 1921 price of $45.00; a 6 foot binder and tongue truck now sells at $148.09, reduction $45.00; 7 foot binder and straight pole $138.00, $45.00; 7 foot binder and tongue truck $153.00. $45.00; 8 foot binder and tongue truck $1C0.00, $48.00; 4 l& foot mower $52.00, balance of the week, featuring the conditions that exist in the famine stricken laml of the Near East.

The board of control made the fol- lowing explanatory statement: "Following a conference between the board of control and representatives of the State Farm :Bureau federation in the office of the board, a material reduction in the price of farm machin- ery manufactured in the state prison at Stillwater was decided upon. All phases of the situation were consid- ered, and while the board of control realizes that business conditions make it almost certain that the prison in- dustries will have to meet a possible Soldier Bonus Bill Soon Up00F0r Passae Kellog's Influence of Much Help Says Former Legion Committee.

On my recent trip whioja took me into practically every larg industal centre in the United States, I t aiked to business men, large and small, about their bfisiness, and we discussed both the present situation and future plans. It is obvious that the executives of Amedca have been busy January, 1920, even if the business themselves have not. In fact, merican business men have probably done more real thinking since the depression .set in than they did in thewhole period of prosperity which preceded it. Almost every man I talked with has a plan for a new building, a,'new product, or the development of new sales field. The project is on paper, the details have bee worked out, and he is just waiting for conditions to get settled. All thee plans mean potential busi- ness for next year or the year after actual orders will be placed just as soon as prices and markets reach stable levels. This situation, apparent as we reach the bottom of the present area of de- pression in 1922, offers the first real chance of the coming period of im- provement. Future business is now on the production counter. You can buy it cheaper now than you will be able to buy it at any time during the next four or five years. It takes no little courage to go coun- ter tn the popular current and spend money for advertising when immedi- ate returns are smaller than usual, but I am convinced that the man who has that foresight aad courage will gain an advantage that will carry him thru the coming periods of improve- ment and prosperity. The year 1922 is the one to use the reserve set aside during the fat years. Cut production costs as much as pos- ,ible, but do not skimp your selling deuce with him regarding the Adjusted Compensation bill since it was drafted by our committee and have conferred' with him on the measure, I .think ev- ery time he has returned from Wash- ingn td Minnesota sine. Wrhen the bill was'was recommitted at the spe- cial session last fall because the ad- ministration felt .other measures were immediately rgent, , while the arl justed compensation 6ill did not take effect until Juiy "1, 1922, Senator: Kel- logg served notice that the measure would have to be taken up and'enacted so that the Senate's course then would cause no delay in the relief affotted' m-service men. While visiting friends in Cleveland young Detroiter was presented a quart of rye whiskey. He decided to take it home in his suitcase. As the steamship neared the dock he became more and more newous. Finally in desperation he confessed his fears to .a fellow voyager." This kindlyindividmI offered o trade suit- o , , cases and assume responmbflty. The young .man was vastly relieved and the change was made The luggage was not searched and a few minutes later the two nmt on shore. The young man was "xceedlng- ly grateful. - "By the way," he observed,: as they exchanged again, "you must have a lot oF things in your suitcase. It's awfully heavy." "Yes," said the stranger, "I have twelve quarts in mine." Friend (to bald-headed man): Does the barber charge you  full price for a haircut ? B. H. Man: Worse than that, old man. He considers it such a joke that he adds an amusement tax. New Subscribers to The Independent. Howard B. Holmes W. T. Utley Harry Hornstein Emil Baerwaldt Anna L. Carlson D. L.

There will be considerable business this sum- 1 met, more the coming fall and win- / ter, more still next year. But the man who goes after it now is the man who will get it. [ In general business the slight sea* / sonal reaction which I forecast threo weeks ao for January is already ap- parent. The Babson chart index shows business running 17 per cent below normal, four per cent lower than last week. Farm Bureau Chie[ Called By Harding Reed,. New Federation President, To Take Part In National Conference. J. F. Reed. new president of the Minnesota Farm Bureau federation. has been invited to take part in the national agricultural conference call- ed by President Harding. He will sit in the Washington conference as the official representative of Minnesota's 73.000 farm bureau members. H. B. Nickerson, president of the Minnesota Co-operative Creameries association, Inc., and vice president of the Twin City Milk Producers, also has been invited to the conference. The farm bureau, it is expected, will be represented by its national officers and by the president of every state farm bureau federation. The A,meri- can federation is preparing to tell the administration and the representatives of the public and of other industries in the conference, vigorously and em- phatically, that the welfare of the whole nation depends on immediate and effective measures to bring prac- tical relief to the farmer. Sinking World Navies Proposed. A proposal that the United States offered to take over the entire navies of the Allies at full cost "as payment toward the billions they /we the United States," accept on account the Allies' other war equipment at "junk prices" and sail "this grand armanda to the Pacific and there be sunk ten miles deep with all flags flying," was made to the conference today by Her- bert Myrick, editor of Farm and Home of Springfield, Mass. Mr. Myrick also proposed reduction of the United States budget for its army and navy. to the pro war figure and utilization of the difference, which he said would be $600,000,000, towards paying the bonus for ghe former ser- vice men. He declared all troubles of the pres- ent era could be ascribed to war and war's extravagances, adding that mote progress had been made toward world peace in the past two months than in the preceding 2,900 years. Scrapping of war machinery and elim- ination of wastes in government, Mr. Myrick said, would go a long way to- ward restoring normal conditions. @ @ A Mention. "The Farmers' and Mer- chants' Printing CO., publishers of The Independent, have bought a casting outfit and saw trimmer. This makes the of- ficea finely quipped one, not only for a young paper, as The In'dependent is but eighteen months old, but, for any paper in a town of the class of Orton- ville.

A proposal that the United States offered to take over the entire navies of the Allies at full cost "as payment toward the billions they /we the United States," accept on account the Allies' other war equipment at "junk prices" and sail "this grand armanda to the Pacific and there be sunk ten miles deep with all flags flying," was made to the conference today by Her- bert Myrick, editor of Farm and Home of Springfield, Mass. Mr. Myrick also proposed reduction of the United States budget for its army and navy. to the pro war figure and utilization of the difference, which he said would be $600,000,000, towards paying the bonus for ghe former ser- vice men. He declared all troubles of the pres- ent era could be ascribed to war and war's extravagances, adding that mote progress had been made toward world peace in the past two months than in the preceding 2,900 years. Scrapping of war machinery and elim- ination of wastes in government, Mr. Myrick said, would go a long way to- ward restoring normal conditions. @ @ A Mention.

On my recent trip whioja took me into practically every larg industal centre in the United States, I t aiked to business men, large and small, about their bfisiness, and we discussed both the present situation and future plans. It is obvious that the executives of Amedca have been busy January, 1920, even if the business themselves have not. In fact, merican business men have probably done more real thinking since the depression .set in than they did in thewhole period of prosperity which preceded it. Almost every man I talked with has a plan for a new building, a,'new product, or the development of new sales field. The project is on paper, the details have bee worked out, and he is just waiting for conditions to get settled. All thee plans mean potential busi- ness for next year or the year after actual orders will be placed just as soon as prices and markets reach stable levels. This situation, apparent as we reach the bottom of the present area of de- pression in 1922, offers the first real chance of the coming period of im- provement. Future business is now on the production counter. You can buy it cheaper now than you will be able to buy it at any time during the next four or five years. It takes no little courage to go coun- ter tn the popular current and spend money for advertising when immedi- ate returns are smaller than usual, but I am convinced that the man who has that foresight aad courage will gain an advantage that will carry him thru the coming periods of improve- ment and prosperity. The year 1922 is the one to use the reserve set aside during the fat years. Cut production costs as much as pos- ,ible, but do not skimp your selling deuce with him regarding the Adjusted Compensation bill since it was drafted by our committee and have conferred' with him on the measure, I .think ev- ery time he has returned from Wash- ingn td Minnesota sine. Wrhen the bill was'was recommitted at the spe- cial session last fall because the ad- ministration felt .other measures were immediately rgent, , while the arl justed compensation 6ill did not take effect until Juiy "1, 1922, Senator: Kel- logg served notice that the measure would have to be taken up and'enacted so that the Senate's course then would cause no delay in the relief affotted' m-service men. While visiting friends in Cleveland young Detroiter was presented a quart of rye whiskey. He decided to take it home in his suitcase. As the steamship neared the dock he became more and more newous. Finally in desperation he confessed his fears to .a fellow voyager." This kindlyindividmI offered o trade suit- o , , cases and assume responmbflty. The young .man was vastly relieved and the change was made The luggage was not searched and a few minutes later the two nmt on shore. The young man was "xceedlng- ly grateful. - "By the way," he observed,: as they exchanged again, "you must have a lot oF things in your suitcase. It's awfully heavy." "Yes," said the stranger, "I have twelve quarts in mine." Friend (to bald-headed man): Does the barber charge you  full price for a haircut ? B. H. Man: Worse than that, old man. He considers it such a joke that he adds an amusement tax. New Subscribers to The Independent. Howard B. Holmes W. T. Utley Harry Hornstein Emil Baerwaldt Anna L. Carlson D. L.

There will be considerable business this sum- 1 met, more the coming fall and win- / ter, more still next year. But the man who goes after it now is the man who will get it. [ In general business the slight sea* / sonal reaction which I forecast threo weeks ao for January is already ap- parent.

New Federation President, To Take Part In National Conference. J. F. Reed. new president of the Minnesota Farm Bureau federation. has been invited to take part in the national agricultural conference call- ed by President Harding. He will sit in the Washington conference as the official representative of Minnesota's 73.000 farm bureau members. H. B. Nickerson, president of the Minnesota Co-operative Creameries association, Inc., and vice president of the Twin City Milk Producers, also has been invited to the conference. The farm bureau, it is expected, will be represented by its national officers and by the president of every state farm bureau federation. The A,meri- can federation is preparing to tell the administration and the representatives of the public and of other industries in the conference, vigorously and em- phatically, that the welfare of the whole nation depends on immediate and effective measures to bring prac- tical relief to the farmer. Sinking World Navies Proposed. A proposal that the United States offered to take over the entire navies of the Allies at full cost "as payment toward the billions they /we the United States," accept on account the Allies' other war equipment at "junk prices" and sail "this grand armanda to the Pacific and there be sunk ten miles deep with all flags flying," was made to the conference today by Her- bert Myrick, editor of Farm and Home of Springfield, Mass. Mr. Myrick also proposed reduction of the United States budget for its army and navy. to the pro war figure and utilization of the difference, which he said would be $600,000,000, towards paying the bonus for ghe former ser- vice men. He declared all troubles of the pres- ent era could be ascribed to war and war's extravagances, adding that mote progress had been made toward world peace in the past two months than in the preceding 2,900 years. Scrapping of war machinery and elim- ination of wastes in government, Mr. Myrick said, would go a long way to- ward restoring normal conditions. @ @ A Mention.
