was made in June ac cording to Western Pig Iron associa tion returns and while another mouth will show quite an increase in produc tion the recent resumptions have not yet told strongly on the column of act ive capacity The fact that even under the latest advances buyers of foundry iron are still trying to make pur chases beyond time limits set by moat producers would indicate a belief that the advance had not yet spent itself and that buyers are getting work inhand that makes them more willing to cover at fully current prices than they were to buy in one hundred ton lots four months ago

Highest of ill in Leavening U S Govt Report Baking Powder ABSOLUTELY PURE HELP HELP HELP There is urgent need of help in the Northwest the help of men to save the abundant grain crop now in the licrlds of Minnesota and North Dakota the only kind of help these states have evor needed Harvesters threshing machines and crews w 11 be needed in nearly every locality Never was there a heavier stand of grain The Great Northern aud other rail ways report a large increase in busi ness in view of the good times which seem again well established in the Northwest The crop in sight is the phenomenal abundance of 1891 when the harvest was great but not prop erly cared for good weather not awaiting the convenience of the farm ers and the result was that hundreds of acres of as fine grain as ever grew went to waste uncut or in tlie shock there not being men enough to handle it before unusually heavy fall rains came on The farmer of Northern Minnesota and North Dakota intends to prolit by the severe lesson of that year and leave nothing undone that can be done to realize the full benefit of this years work but he must have assistance To afford this assistance will give men an admirable chance to visit the Northwest and pay their way by working in the fields and by so doing it becomes a mutual benefit tn all concerned It may or may not rain but history repeats itself and
