There has been a radical change in the Republican definition of the word "Populist." Until recently the word has been defined as awildeyed species of political sorehead crazed by political vagaries; an anarchist: theoff-scourings of the body politic, which the Republican party was pleased to be rid of. But the later definition of Populists as applied by Republicans, is: An element of citizenship that has served its well-meaning, though ill-advised purposes, and would now be welcomed with open hearts to the fold of the Republican party, in order to deliver this worthy element of politics from its unholy ally, the Democracy.

Sherman Cope who threshed his crop for him reports that Henry got 1475 bushels of 62 pound wheat off of 100 acres, beating all his neighbors, some of whom got fewer bushels of wheat from two or three times as much ground. Mr.

Wolf owes his success to the fact that he farms systematically and thoroughly. He keeps the surface of his field loose and mellow and plows or disks his graund every year before seeding and always puts his wheat in early, about the first of September. It is owing to these common sense methods, thorough cultivation, early seeding and handling a compar atively small acreage in a proper manner that Mr. Wolf always has good crops and has good wheat this year when the drouth cut the yield short all over the county.
