There is one class of laborers who never strike and seldom complain.

Not even sickness releases them from their posts. No sacrifice is deemed too great for them to make and no incompetency in any branch of their work is excused.

Uncle Sam has lately looked into this matter of prices of beef and he places most of the blame on the retail merchant. The Department of Agriculture gives figures which show that the price of beef both on hoof and on the carcass has declined from 15 to 29 per cent since the heavy export trade has been checked. In Chicago this decline from March 1 to July 1 of his year, was 28 per cent. The danger of the situation up by Uncle Sam as follows: "this situation a real menace to the farmer and to the cosuming public as well.

For we must not lose sight of the fact that the law of supply and demnnd is going to rule the price of any commodity. For this law of supply and demand is just as infallable as is the law that water will always seek its level. Therefore If you wish to buy cheap food you must of necessity increae production and the way to increase production is certainly not to make to make the farm more alluring. Statistics show that over one third of the tillable lands in Kentucky lie dormant year after year because there ia no one to till them. These lands with proper cultivation would be just as productive as other lands, and the reason they are not furnishing their share of the necessaries of life may be answered by illustration. We will take the City Railway of Louisville for instance. There is also another principle Ninety per cent or more of the which is allied to each of the ques Motormen and Conductors em tions discussed, that is adding to -- because they can earn more money wi h less exertion by running a car than they can by following a plow. This is a fact that none will dare offer to deny and so is it right fo r these men to expect their brothers who remained on the farm to sell their sweat to the public in the form of bread and meat for a smaller sum than they are willing to take for theirs? And is it right for the man who worked eight hours on the railroad or in the shop to expect to receive more bread and meat for his effort than is given to the farmer who the same day spent fro ji ten to fourteen hours in the field? No. God created all men equal, and the sweat of one man is not worth one cent more than the sweat of another. And again we must realize that the farm is the stone foundation upon which all wealth is builded; that the farmer should not be expected to give more to the public than he receives in return, and that no man is worth more to his employer or to the public than he earns for them. And it is high time fur the public to begin to realize that the day is past and that it will never return when the farmer and his family will dress in homespun and ride in a cart which is drawn by a yoke of oxen, while the city people dress in silks aud ride in automobiles and airships. For the farmer is awakening from his lethargy at last and for the first time in life is realizing his importance to the nation. And in order to hold the place in society to which he is entitled he is de manding and receiving the n to which he is entitled. recg-nitio- A.
