have much Important work to do la your reg ular session which convenes on March the 21th 1908 and in order that you may havo more tlmo for legislative duties I therefore re spectfully ask you to convene In special session In the Legislative Hall Upper Chapel on Friday Marcn tho 20th at C OQ p m for tho purpose of making permanent your organization for rogjular busi ness With kindest regards J S Penlx Governor of Appalachia Interest In the coming session of tho Mountain Congress Is become ing very keen and electioneering Is going on all over the Campus There has already been ono remarkable deal made which shows a considerable knowledge pf political methods on the part of some of the boys and al- partlesprasttNnfnCjovery nerve jfar control of tho ongrees when It 1 c 5 1i i wrlyrrti A i 1J GETTING AT THE ROOTS Everyone knows that the world is full of evils big and little near us and far away and that they can only be cured by people going at them and making changes Everybody knows that all the good that hRs come into the world since the time when our greatgreatgrandparents were monkeylike animals hopping around in the trees has como from some one changing the way people were doing things And yet when you start out to get any one to do things differently there is always n fuss and a lot of men stand up and make objections- If those mon are smart tho they do not oppose the thing that is being tried they say that there is change needed and that they arc all for reform but they explainthat the plan made does not strike at the root of the evil They say that something more drastic is needed that it is usless to cutoff some of the results of the wrong ways and leave the thing itsolf as strong as ever that it is useless to waste time over half way nt asures Therefore tliey say do nothingtThat sounds very fine nnd has stopped many a good thing but those people are wrong on two points First it is good to curo part of any evil even when you cant cure the whole thing and second you dont have to hit the root of an ovil to euro it Of course it is better to cure everything at once if you can but it is seldom that a lot of men Will agree as to the cure for a whole string of evils when it is easy to get enough tp agree qn the cure for one or for n part of one After that is fixed it is eas ier to take up the next and besides lift will be better while you are waiting It might be better to cat a whole meal at one swallow but few men haven swallowor big enough So it is with evils I it is always butter to take several bits one at a time than to bite off more than you can chew About failing to strike at the root of the evil Did you ever see a field of brush where a lot of sheep or goats had been turned in Now neither sheep or goats got at the roots of the brush but you will notice that the bush doesnt live long while they arc around They oat the branches off one at a time nnd by and by thero is nothing left for the roots to live on Few of us can take the time to loath where tfye roots of the evils ttt annoy us arc but we can all see the branches ofwrong that are nearest us and take a hack at them once in a while It may not reform the wholc world but it will help a little Most bf the good is done by hacking at the branches not one man in a thousand finds the roots or if he finds them has strength andwis dom to hit at them But thousands arc hacking all the time at the branches and they arc helping progress just as truly It is not the groat generals who win the battles it is the fighting men and so it is just as important to have people hitting right and left at the smaller branches of evil as it is to have geniuses digging at the roots If you can be a genius so much the bettor for you but if the things to do is not to sulk and holler that the good work is not good enough but to go to work to help where you can If we all did that the world would improve mighty fast meets next Tuesday It now looks as If the coalition of tNG Democrats and the Prohibitionists would win tho Republicans having been outvoted at tho first meeting There are rumors that money Is being freely used but they havo lacked confirmation and while the deal between the Lionlike Democrats and the Lamblike Prohib itionists is exciting wonder The CIt- Izen is in a position to state that bribery has not been resorted to The prollmlnary meeting for organ ization was held Monday night and resulted In the election by tho com bine of Mr Penlx for Governor and Everett Kirk for Siraker The Republicans had been confident of success but were disconcerted by the coalition Tire election of tho speaker was accomplished by the clever application of a parliamentary rule un der which some of tho Republicans were counted preset but were not allowed to vote Tho

CHAPTER XXXVI Continued But their release will bo the most tffcctyal way of spreading the news On the contrary they cannot make tt known without exposing themselves It they do that Ferdinand will BOO to It that their respective sov ereigns qultcly but effectually remove them Each of them Is so well known that they may bo arrested at any time Ferdinand shrewdly makes them hostages as it were The throe certainly will exert their great Influence to check the rebellion they them selves have fostered As for Gornjl and Gortschnkoff before they aro released from tho hospital the trials will have passed And are wo left to account for the deaths of Starva and Bratlnau as best we may I questioned anx iously If you remember I told you at Lucerne that I am an old newspaper man It Is Impossible to hide the fact that an attack has been made on Prince Ferdinand hero tonight Stut an attack by his own countrymen that bas proved a disastrous failure Is quite a different thing from a deliberate gathering here of representa tives of each of the Balkan States Ferdinand has taken my advice to post In hot haste to Sofia I shall see to it that this nights work does hot get Into the papers until 24 hours bave passed By that time he will have shown himself sate and sound In i Sofia The episode of the deathmask will have proved a complete fiasco My story will make Prince Ferdinanda hero triumphant over his foes and pat a weak king who was lured hero unwittingly by his mistress to his doomThere still remains Jacques Oh Jacques said Locke with contempt He was only a tool of Starvas and a stupid tool at that It was ho who was to lower the flag at half mast It seemsto give tho Igntl to the conspirators who wera watching In the village But when bo rushed to the chamber window to lower the flag he found both rope and fastenings wrenched away He sup posed that tho gale had done this but seeing the flag at half mast the ropo being caught In the pulley ho said nothing about the matter to Starva I suspect that you were responsible for tho lowering of the flag and not tho gale 1 needed the rope I said short ly too Impatient to make further ex planation And now for my last question What tho devil did you mean when you said that you had promoted me And why this haste that I leave Alterhoffenf Are you so anxious then that it be known that you have been Imper sonating the British ambassador Scarcely I said uneasily Awl my dear fellow Kuhn and the rest tblnk that It was Sir Morti mer who came to the rescue of Prince Ferdinand and not Mr Ern est Haddon an Americas tourist Rut why do you allow them to think thld- Haddon at times you are singu larly dense If these men believe that the British ambassador has been tilled by one of their number while defending Ferdinand do you not see that this will keep them oven more si lent regarding their share In this eight tragedy For if Englands am bassador were really murdered yo I may bo sure that the would not rest until she had brought the assassins to JusticeYou are right Locke I must leave Allerfaetfen at once- CHAPTER XXXVII The 8ssondl Dispatch I wu about to go to Helena in the snuslo room to bid her goodby when Capt Forbes returned from his er randWell thats settled be cried Joining us And do you agree with rocks and myself that It Is wise that you should leave Alterhoffea before daybreakPerfectly He heard my decIsKm with evident tellrf You will accept mr apology for nlstrnaing you Haddon and I hope we shall be friends wild ho offering me his hand with a running smile But you must confess rou gave me ample grounds for being a little wary bf yea Before long wo shut meet and I shall hope to hear your reasons for going Into this extraordinary adventure In the meanwhile may I J trouble you for the dispatch I gave to you In thE hotel at Vltznau or did I ft tall Into Starvas hand that night To prevent that I dropped It from cbe window into a disused fountain In the garden below InterruptedLoekrserve that this seals are unbroken Frankly Forbes I said 1 thought you rather an idiot to give mean Important dispatch that night You must bravo seen that t was more or lees la Starvas power and that he aa Mkely to gain poMesslnn of the 1L J Bad tklr MNMbMi sallea fate Ida hands replied Forbes It Is qulto possible that Ferdinand would have been saved his bad hate hour Do you remember I told you my pseudoam bassador and you acted tho part remarkably well let mo tell you that I carried two dispatches for Sir Mor timer and that I gave you tho ono of lesser Yes Importanc01IWas It when ha trapped you In tho tower Forbes nodded I took tho liberty of taking It from him just now And may a humble American con sul ask drawled Locke how to nights episode would have been averted had the dispatch you gavo Haddon fallen into Starvas hands Instead of into the fountain My chief at Downing street wouldIretire me and with no pension knew that I were going to dlvulgo state secrets However I am going to tell you This dispatch you have returned to me I happen to know authorized Sir Mortimer Brett to meet In confer ence the men who so very nearly snuffed out Ferdinands life an hour ago I am referring now to tho dispatch which I gave you at Vltznau Haddon Ho was to assure these rep resentatives of tho various states that England realized that a harmonious confederation could atone permanent ly allay the present discontent In the t Shyly Share Others Peninsula Had Starva seen this die patch it Is not likely that ho would have had recourse to violence Do you mean to toll me exclaimed Locke Incredulously that your ministers of the foreign office cherish so Utopian a scheme Are the various kings to abdicate because England nods I am telling you nothing of sort chuckled Forbes You Amer icans are Infants when It to Intricacies of diplomacy Secret agents and spies at Sofia had warned tho government of the Intended upris ing It was necessary that England should know more of tho consplra tors Therefore Sir Mortimer was in structed to profess a sympathy for the cause which of course as not sincere This dispatch Sir Mortimer or myself were to allow to be etolen If necessary Its contents were ex plumed to me before I London that I might repeat verbally the sage should tho dispatch not reach himSince you have already betrayed your governments confidence said Locke Jocularly tell us the purport of the second dispatch I will redd it to you since the seals aro broken agreed Forbes after a moments hesitation To Excellency etcSir The thisIdispatch you another which authorizes you to treat with the committee of the various states of the Balkans who have for their aim a confederation of these states You will uso the aforementioned die patch at your discretion It is need less to say that neither this ministry nor the other powers can for an ins stant sanction a scheme so impossible But it has come to our knowledge that a dangerous conspiracy ex ists to overthrow tho rulers of the various states To check this conspiracy It may 6e well for you to temporize If you think it expedient per tact the dispatch mentioned to tall I Into The hands of this committee Capt Forbes will follow the same course If necessary Ho has fnll In structions to exorcise his discretion in this matter- It is not without surprise that the mluistry has learned of your promise to Ferdinand regarding Englands support of his project namely tho threatoned Invasion of Macedonia Fortunatctly the ministry Is con winced that some such move as yoa sanction is expedient to free Macedonia from the atrocities of Turkish misrule that have shocked Europe so long His majestys ministry therefore Is inclined to overlook In this instance any undue bios you have shown In espousing Macedonias cause If you aro convinced that the finan cier of Now York city whom you have named Is sincere In his otter to give Prince Ferdinand financial support you aro authorized to tell him that his majestys ministers aro heartily in favor of Prince Ferdinands inva lion and will exert every Influence to Insure him unrestricted action Moreover tho foreign office is in full accord with your views as to the sum of money indispensable to Ferdinands roJect But while his majestys govern ment agrees with you that lofty prin ciples actuate Bulgaria It realizes with yourself that lofty principles aro not sufficient to insure the success of Ferdinands cause In conclusion wo hasten to as sure you of our fullest sympathy In your endeavor to help an oppressed people gain their liberty and that It Is not without satisfaction we find ourselves enabled to further your per sonal wishes and ambitions in this matter Nor need you have anxiety that your own Interests will run coun ter to thoso of England We view with concern tho precarious state of your health but we trust that It will not prove an obstacle to your contem plated meeting of tho financier In conference at AUcrnoffoa at tho chateau of Prince Ferdinands secret Our Happiness She Said We with the comes tho left mes His agent With renewed expressions of our complete confidence In you Believe me sir etc Haddon said Locke not a little crestfallen I was ruotully wide of the mark In my conjectures concern Ing Sir Mortimers relaUons with the Countess Sarahoff I told you that morning at Lucerne that I was behind the scenes I confess myself the veriest amateur Never has writing thrilled me as did that dispatch A great light was dawning on me I clutched the pas per I bold It with a trembling hand Forbes I cried hoarsely once though quite unwillingly I tricked you out of the dispatch Locke just returned to you But now I ask you to give mo for half an hour tho dis patch you have just read It means everything to Sir Mortimers sister deviltryInaware of The honor of Sir Morti mer himself Is at stake This die patch will help to save It Give me the paper that I may show it to Miss BrettI been too much astonished at the events of the past 24 hours to wonder at your request Tako your dispatch but you will return it In tactr1 You need havo no fear as to that But I have still another request tho papers you saw mo take from the safe which Madamo de Vnrnlor wrestled from methey belong to Miss Brett Ho hesitated Ou my honor they concern na one but her What Do you still mis trust meT No uiy dear fellow Ho priced the packet In my hand I entered the music room to bring to Helena tidings of great joy CHAPTSR XXXVIII JoyBbestood look- Ing out OH the jswtftUlu ta the far- r distance They were fhtntoM M despair beckoning to her In the moss light They had brought suffering to her as well as to myself for had I not gone to Lucerne and told her the story of my cowardice perhaps she would havo been spared the knowl edge of her

Is Capt Forbes has Juit given me the second packet tho ono that Madame do Varnler took from me forcibly It is possblo that its contents concern your brother May f open Itf Yes sho said listlessly I tore open the packet with rftltb oration though heavens knows my fingers trembled I spread tho paper on the piano where I bad shorn Madame do Varnlor the death mask tho ovenlnpr before I read then one after the other Tho proof was ab solute Sir Mortimers honor could no longer be questioned Fools we had been and blind Helena I said mastering my emo tlon with an effort It is AS I thought these papers throw a flood of light on tho letters and notes of your brother that we have so harshly misunderstood Sho came swiftly to my side Harshly misunderstood she ripest ed with blanched lips I was sorting carefully the papers Helena had just given mo tho letters supposed to have boon written by the committee of freedom and to which Sir Mortimers comment were sin ned I laughed aloud when I saw that these letters supposed to be the prislpsJs were typewritten 04 vera the copies- Now I understood why Madame de Vnrnicr had refuted to let mo see what she called the origins papers It was not so much that she feared I should destroy them she know that tho fact of their being typewritten would at onco awaken my ousplelon Did It not occur to you as being rather suspicious that these letters were written on n typewriter- At first It did replied I Helena searching my face wonderingly But sho quieted my doubts by ex plaining p mo that tho letters were typedto prevent the possibility of their

Basket and Leaves Hands Free to Work To enable fruit pickers to use both hands freely vhllo carrying the bas kets which they are filling Mr George S Ialno of Winslow Me has Invent ed a basket holler which easily may bo secured in operative position by means of an adjustable strap passed around the waist The holder con side of a troughshaped member of shoot metal which securely binds tho basket In place It Is particularly designed to hold a pair of small baskets or boxes of tho typo In which berries aro usually sold but It will be evident that tho holder could only bo adapted to carrying baskets of other types As shown In tho accompanying Illustra tlon says Scientific American tho sheet metal trough A Is provided with an offset at one side and an outward ly Inclined wall n At tho opposite Basket Holder for Fruit side tho trough Is made fast to a block which Is curved to fit tho body Se cured to this block Is a metal band provided with buttons at each end to which n strap may be secured This strap Is provided with a number of buttonholes so that It may bo adjust ed to tho slzo of waist of the per ton on whom the holder Is mounted When placing the baskets In the trough A they will root on tho offset- at tho forward itldo thereof and tho extension n will press against them and bind them In pbico The baskets will thus securely bo retained against accidental displacement as tho operator moves from place to place Obviously tho use of this holder will effect n considerable economy for with both hands free tho operator will lx ebbs to pick a much larger quantity of fruit In a given time STARTING A YOUNG ORCHARD Point to Be Observed In Securing a Good Growth There are many farmers who keep themselves busy saying that there Is no pay in bothering with an orchard and with them and the way they man ege it It does not pay After you have set tho trees the work of a profitable orchard Is not all done That Is only tho beginning and It is well to make a good beginning but tho young trees need some future care They need cultivating especially whllo young You had possibly bet tot not set trees at all an to set them In sod and let the grass grow up around them for then they will grow slow bo stunted and likely die before coming Into bearing The grass takes up tho moisture and tho plant food and robs the tree of vitality Young trees should be cultivated frequently for the first few years un less you know a better method Somo are using the mulch method and I think It Is all right so far as tho tree Is concerned I think it Is fully as good as cultivating if It does not make havolnoveryoungorchard cuiUvalo spring and summer and go over tho ground about onco a week or after every rain Keep tho surface cultS rated Either do this by growing

Results In Lower Prices When Marketinur To see tho way In which some fruit reaches market It Is no wonder there arc farmers who say fruit growln does not pay Very frequently baskets give evi denc6 from their blackened moldy appearance that they have been stored In damp collars or they show chaff and dust of tho hay loft Snob pack ages could not bring a good price for oven the choicest of fruit Secondhand packages or thoso that into been used for fruit before are entirely un suitable HcstdcR being unsightly they will cause fruit to decay on the road to market Tbo wood of secondhand j packages is liable to become Im pregnated with the spores of molds and rots from former fruit end will cause the jpccdy decay of fresh fruit coming In contact with It Very frequently packages are used which are unsuited to the nature or tho fruit A bushel basket Is a port means for carrying nnd displaying del lcatc hlghelal fruit like poaches A- barrel I too largo for soft fruit Ilko Bartlett and Clapp pears Often a 20 i pound basket of grapes will bo begging for a purchaser whllo If tho same fruit were placed In dainty three pound baskets tho fruit would sell llko hot cakes at 25 and 30 cents npircn or eight to ten cents per pound for the I gropes The most common evidence fir rare lessness on tho part of the trait grower is the sending of ungraded pad ages showing large Intornutllate and small specimens of fruit which almost Invariably sell at the rate paid for Ins tenor stuff says Farmers Voice It would probably sell nt a hotter price It every specimen In tho package worn small tho largo specimens being ft detriment rather than otherwise It Is a frequent sight in tho commission houses of any of the largo dtica to SPA men sorting and repacking fruit carefully which was carelessly put up by the farmer Tho commission men py the farmer a minimum price for the whole package and that Is the btthat can be gotten for It Tho largo fine specimens are sorted out and packed In a smaller pack ago and bring a special prior often much more than could bo gotten for tho whole original ungraded package Tho profit for such grading wnloh might have gono to the farmer natur ally wont to the commission merchant who did tho work The grower moreover paid the same freight on tho Inferior fruit In the paokago that ho did on tho special grade that brought the special prlca to tho commission

has failed as the municipality has failed to serve the interests of the common life The church has been too world ly to let religion expand it has been too unworldly to give people a chance The church has never been democratic enough to allow the people to voice their sentiments There has always been dominance of the hierarchy if not of the clergy The people do not voice their opinions in religious matters and are not expected to have them It is also the great weakness of all government that we do not trust the people enough We are confronted in our American traditions with tIle difficulty ofa national church and the need of a national organization of rcligiofl We keep our religion now for the seventh day and look upon the clergyman and the politician as different beings We divorce the separate aspects of life from each other yet all these special interests are founded like language i lCon the common life of the people If we go to the people for our language whynot go to them tot the sources of our inspiration If we went to the people learned their needs and tried to incorporate them wo should get more efficiency Might we not appeal to the laity to get a new infusion of blood The church is trying to get at our workingmen It doesnt let them mice themselves Let us open our school houses on Sunday and givo them th opportunity of expressing themselves in worship Then we can afford to tax the private religious houses if people want to go to them In England they let people talk all sorts of nonsense Its the best safety valve Our religious life lacks spontaneity and moves along conventional channels The municipality is our best unit We are going to regenerate our municipal government before vte regenerate our national government We are going to extend the town meetings

WALLACE To many women life is such that to face it demands more courage than to face death To live for ones kith and kin is often more heroic than to die for ones country Not nil womens lives are cast in pleasant places There is the daily toil of the young girl who struggles to cant on honest livelihood lICe ing all too little of the joy of life and sipping all too early of the cup of sorrow and Scarcely can she feed or clothe herself as slue should be flXIon clothed Her outlook and prospects are lim ited From the drab surroundings of the present she may look back to the gray past or forward into tho menacing darkness of the future She is balanced on the brink of the infinities A perilous position I But she does not quail She is broca heroine without knowing it Again take the case of the suburban family whose growing requirements take their daily toll of the planning brain and unflagging spirit of the mother They are doomed by force of circumstances to live t1leUre spectable life of the suburbsa condition of existence as far removed from the simple life as east from west The problem of living a comparatively full life on a superlatively empty puree is indeed a difficult one but must be faced by the women on whom devolves the dire responsibility of keeping up appearances The children must be dressed fed schooled be entertained and entertain in conformity with the ideas of the exclusive suburb in which they reside The suburban matrons wardrobe must withstand the fire of criticism Now to cultivate the fine flower ofa 1 suburban life on a poor soil is really heartbreaking work Nobody in come is ever so ample as it is made to appear But the wife has learned thesocret of perennial opulence She it the keeper of the keys of social life and death Does she not serve as a slave at home that site may shine as a queen abroad Does she not strive and struggle half the day that her husband and children may frolic and frivol halt the night She makes apparent extravagance possible because of her genius for small economics She saves that others may waste She plots Cnnynand plans that husband and children may be so that it shall appear to return the value of two In hours snatched from rest she rings the changes on the evanescent garments of children ijiaking new things from old ones She darts her husbands socks- and repairs what other thugs he may require She keeps the peace amongst inharmonious relatives for the childrens sakes In a word is she not n brave woman Is mho not one of the heroines of the su burbs I am sure she is For true it is that unheard of heroines like unheard melodies are sweeter than those whose names are on every tongue Card Players AreGamblers yUVrEROrilNS D D wtue disappointment Men and women learn to play the pianoI without

years ago two young farmers named Marsh wero cutting grain near DeKalb 111 They wero too Intelligent- too American to bo fond of work for works sake And ot all their drudgery tho everlasting stooping over bundles to bind them into sheaves galled them mosL Such backbreaking toll they thought might be well enough for kangaroos but It cor tninly was not suitable for an erect blprd like man says Herbert It Cal son In Everybodys- If I didnt have to walk from bundle to bundle and hump myself like a horeshoe I could do twice as much work said one of the brothers Wolf said the other why cant wo fix a platform on tho reaper end have the grain carried up to us It was a brilliant idea and a new one Neither of the young fellows had over seen a reaper factory but they wero handy and selfreliant By the next autumn they were in the field with their new machine and as they hart expected they bound the grain twlco as quickly aa they had the year befprc Bo was born the famous Marsh bar fester which proved to be tho halfway mark In the evolution of tho STain reaping machine It was the child of the reaper and the parent of the self binder It cut In two tho cost of bind Ing grain nut It did more than this IS gave the farmer his first chance to stand erect and forced him to be quick for tho two men who stood on tho harvester were compelled to bind the grain as fast as It was cut Thus It introduced the factory system one might say Into tho harvest field For the flrst time the lUg Marsh made its appearance on the farm The Old Dogma and the New Tho Yale graduate whose diploma isles back

transgressions thereof co that Jua tlce may bo meted cut to criminals It appears to be tho business of some lawyers to assist Criminals in avoid ing Justice rather than otherwise There Is a great temptation o criminal lawyers tn do oversthing In their power to clear their clients whether right or wrong co as to build up a reputation of always winning ihclr cases This Is of course wholly wrong When an attorney takes the case of an Indicted person It Is his busi ness to see that hie client has ill the tights allowed by the law and tho constitution These include the right to a speedy trial to call wit nesses in his own defense to plead guilty or riot guilty to testify in his own behalf or ttcllno to do so It he prefers to see that an impar tial Jury is secured He has no right to browbeat wit nesses to prejudice or bribe Jurors to secure false testimony or to go beyond the bounds of law In short It Is his duty to see that his client has a fair anti impartial trial before a Jury of his peers and to give wise counsel in the conduct of tho case so that ho may have every chance that Is possible and right to prove his Innocence Many lawyers have earned world wide reputations by thus dealing honestly and righteously with their clients Dot defending or prosecuting crim inals Is not the main part of law practice There ic much more to lo done In adjusting claims making collections

OtherValull of Loyalty to Horn Inttitutloni i Docs tho average individual owe al legiance to anybody or anything Is ho always sulllclcnt unto himself or Is ho dependent upon and does ho like wise contributeto other effort These ara questions which can best bo discussed by considering tho con ditions as they are found in any pros perous community and one will an swer for all says Guy T Mitchell lu Maxwells Talisman Wo will assume that the native resources of this par ticular locality are ample Tho ftolt Is fertile and mellow the methods of farming are good the crops are uni formly heavy and the formers are prosperous Under normal conditions the towns of such a rural district I should share this prosperity Hero I fvo find one which partakes of this I condition Tho visitor observes that Jio houses nre well built the grounds well kept and tho homes attractive and irtlstlc lie Is Impressed at once with the fact that tho value of tho beautiful ill appreciated by the citizens and that ho spirit of cooperation Is abroad But why should perhaps the very next town or village not ten miles distant surrounded by the same good farm Ing land support conditions the exact reverse Why should Its houses and stores be so poorly built Inartistic gaucho aud with no attempt at beauty with no Idea that the mellowing Influ ence of time shall enhance rather than diminish their attractiveness Why are there so tow yards well kept with shade trees and green lawns and or namental shrubs and flower bola and why In every way should there IK such n general appearance of neglect and unthrift What is the reason for the differ enco Because It will lx found that in ev ery progressive community n small coterie of energetic public spirited men and women have systematically tone about the Improvement of their homes They have vet examples they have devoted themselves to fostering the spirit of local pride of home town work they have determined to make their town n place most satisfactory to live In a pigs of beauty convenience and health they have directed their energies toward making their town the real heart of the surrounding commu city Every town every village Is the center the heart of Its surrounding country It may be a weak inactive heart scarcely carrying Its feeble Im pulse Into tho arteries which ramify the countryside or It may be a strong enthusiastic pulsating heart carrying the current of Its Influence vigorously Into the remotest corner of the terri tory It dominates Just as we are considered as a na Uon practically tuiflclcnt unto our lelvcs so as citizens of different states we arc loyal to home Institutions state pride Is a most healthy attribute and to carry tho Idea still further we may with profit support the institu lions of our individual communities Out ns individual citizens wo are Inv complete For a full measure of prosperity wo must depend upon our neighbors and our neighbors upon us As every dollar that Is sent out of the United States to Europe or elsewhere for tho purchase of things which we have at home Is n distinct loss to the ountry so money scilt out of our par ticular state Into another state enriches that slate at the expense of our own while it is equally trop that our in llvldual community suffers to the tame extent through the purchase of goals In distant places which wo night buy at home Tbo heart of the community is worth stimulating worth nourishing both From within cud without for it In the central force which makes of the corn munity a virile active and aggressive place As an Instance of tho value to the entire community of the activity or tho heart take the case of an up to late Iowa town of some 18000 or 20 000 population A tow years ago tho place supported two miserable little hotels On tune on the tray I cling men that great moving nrml throughout the west this town wts known as rotten The drummers skipped tho town when possible or If they lied to make It they como In on one train and went out on tho next They got through their business as expeditiously as possible even slight Ing it to get to tho next place on their route where good meals and a good alghts lodging could bo hid Then the town concluded that Its business requIred a good hotel ana while the peoplo were about It they put up a aweUone Now every traveling man likes to make Ho stny- soerSundtty there He stays there 11- 9long as he can and canvasses every store for the sale of his goods What Is tho result of simply having this line hotel The stores have a full lino of goods of nil descriptions tho people of the community como to town to buy fox they cnn got what they want and the merchants do n big business A good farming community buys much The people live well and raise- a wholesome variety of products but they buy through the year many things According to census statlstlcb the average of the farmers of tin United States spends 8027 a year for 1f supplies clothing for the family household utensils food that Is not raised at home farm Implements etc This Is tho average Some buy more BOIIIO much less Now this means R large circulation of money perhaps 300000 or 100000 expended annually by tho farmers within five or six tulles of any small town How and where do they spend It Is the town Itself such as to impress them with tbo feeling that It Is the real heart of their com muntty Is It n pretty town n beautl ful town In which they cannot but feel a Just pride Has It wide well kept streets anti good roads lending Into It over which It Is a delight to drive either with a light buggy or a heavily laden wagon carrying a load of produce to market tins It long rows of shade trees and sane public parking to ruche It attractive Are its citizens taking a undo In making their own grounds and yards beautiful and their houses vine covered club not commonplace In short In It such a place as n man may bo glad to visit to pat ronize and to call his town and where as ho retires In his later years from the active work of farm life ho may move or look forward to moving Into and becoming himself n resident Tho poorer classes of Italian and Chinese laborers earn their wages In our country and vend
