Continued on fourth loge f THE LESSON OF LIRCOLN IThe whole American nation in celebrating just now the hundredth of that great leader and statesman who under God was the means of preserving us as a nation in the most trying crisis in our history Everywhere in gatherings ofall kinds with song and speech and prayer the nation is honoring the memory of Abraham Lincoln and glorying in his greatness And nowhere is this done with so good a right as here among the people from whom he sprung greatlyinpeople the sonsof Kentucky are fairly proud of their kinship with him The greatness of Lincoln is of the kind that will live forever not to much for the things he did as because of the man he was The effect of his work may be covered by the changes of civilization but his character can never be effaced and he will continue to be au inspiration and a guide to the aspiring and patriotic youth of his nation It sometimes seems that in looking at the lives of socalled great men we are bound to admit that they showed little of what are call- I ed the Christian virtues their greatness came not from their goodness but from brilliant genius in statesmanship or on the field of bat I tie and many blots on their characters have to be explained or over looked And often when we turn from the contemplation ofsome such brilliant genius we feel glad that his day is over and that we wore not called on to pay part of the terrible price of his fame But it is never so with Lincoln There is a constant inspiration and help in his memory We should be glad to have him at the helm of our state today His work was done not at others cost but for their benefit I Perhaps the greatest inspiration that a young man can draw from the life of Lincoln is thisHe became great turn having more than others qualities the germs of which are in every human soul LincolnsIgreat powers Qf workor his military genius but rather of virtues I which we all can haveof his honesty first and his unselfishness his kindness sympathy with suffering forgiveness and tact And of stundingII of them that you and I cannot have in large measurenot one that will not come to us with striving And just so far as wo can attain them which is very far indeed will we partake of Lincolns greatness We do not need genius to be like himjust goodness Hit life has giv en to greatness a new meaning which brings it within the range of endeavor of every earnest soul He has proved that the common faults of mankind need not prevent such growth of the common vir tues as to accomplish without genius the greatest tasks of historyt I His example is the most inspiring shown by American history and on his birthday no American most of all no Kentuckian should fail to share that inspiration IN OUR OWN STATE Prohibition Movement StartedL E Sale Denied Jack Chinn on the War PathNew Story About H rgs FOR STATE PROHIBITION The W C T U and the Prohibition par ty have started In Louisville a movement for statewide prohibition by constitutional amendment They say that local option Is not enough that It allows communities that want to permit the sale of liquor and that counties can go back to license if after a three years trial they do not like prohibition Therefore they want a problbiton constitutional amend mod so that the state will have to stay dry It is also hoped that the movement for state prohibition will so scare the liquor people that they will not oppose the county unit bill now being pushed THAT L E DEAL The sale of the 1 E reported last week has been denied but it has been learned

primaries be pub lished from pulpits and proclaimed in legislative houses and enforced In the Courts of Justice in short let it become the political religion of the nationiA POLITICAL CHART Prepared by Abraham Lincoln I like to see a man proud of the place In which he lives I like to Me a man who lives in it so that his place will be proud of him Be honest but hate no one overturn a mans wrongdoing but do not overturn him unless it must be in overturning the wrong Stand with anybody that stands right Stand with him while he is right and part with him when I he goes wrong LINCOLNS IMMORTAL GETTYS BURG ADDRESS Remarks at the Dedication of the National Cemetery at the Battlefield of Gettysburg In Pennsylvania Nov 19 1863 r Fourscore and seven years ago our fathers brought forth upon this coa tlnent a new nation conceived ia liberty and dedicated to the proposi tion that all men arc created equal Now we are engaged in a great civil war testing whether that nation or any nation so conceived and ro dedicated can long endure We are met on a great battlefield of that war We have come to dedicate a portion of that field as a final rest ing place for those who here gave their lives that that nation might live It is altogether fitting and proper that we should do this But In a larger sense we cannot de dicate we cannot consecrate we cannot hollow this ground The brave men living and dead who struggled here have consecrated It far above our power to add or detract The world will little note nor long rem ember what we say here but it can never forget what they did here It Is for us the living rather to bo dedicated hero to the unfinished work which they who fought here have thus so nobly advanced It Is rather for us to bo here dedicated to tho great task remaining before us that from the honored dead we take increased devotion to the cause for which they gave the last full measure of devo tion that we here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died In vain that this nation under God shall have a new birth of freedom and that government of the people by tho people and for the people shall not perish from the earth 1 uu I Eim SIIIELDS a d

soon as the ferry reached tho Is land Mr Lincoln was taken In ono di rection and Mr Shields in the other They wero given seats on logs and left to themselves while seconds and peacemakers discussed tho situation In a short time a serious defect In tho proceedings on tho part of Shields came to light Tho challenge had been sent prematurely Tho mistake is explained quite dearly In the Alton traditions Lincoln had amused himself and had entertained tho Whigs by writing funny letters toa Springfield paper about the Democrats and signing his epistle Aunt Rebecca Mary Todd who aft conspiredtoAunt Rebecca letter of their own composition and send log It to tho paper along with some verses which they signed Cathleen The letter which the girls wrote went outside of politics and contained a burlesque pro posal of marriage to Auditor Shields Now the auditor afterward a United States senator from three states and a bravo general of two wars was a fiery young man While Springfield laughed Shields began an investiga lion He demanded of tho editor tho real name of Aunt Rebecca The girls became frightened Dunn the banker went over to Mr Lincolns office and said Weve got into an awful fix Whats the matter asked Lincoln Tho girls havo written some poetry on Shields said Bunn Didnt you see it In tho paper Well Shields says ho wont stand It What shall we do about it You go back and when you meet Shields tell him I vrroto it said Lincoln Shields accepted this without verification and sent tho challenge Shields saw tho error of proceeding further when ho learned that Lincoln was not tho writer For an hour or moro tho writing and exchanging of notes wpnt on Meantime the population of Alton stood In a dense mass oh tho river bank looking across tho chan nol and having a good view of all of the movements pill Souther good reporter that ho was kept his eyes on tho principals Ho told that for some time after the landing Lincoln and Shields sat quietly on their logs Lincoln said nothing and Souther thought ho looked serious After a while something happened and South er said that when ho saw it ho nearly blew up Tho bundle of sabres had been laid down near tho log where Lincoln was sitting Lincoln reached out and took up ono of tho weapons He drew tho blade slowly from tho scabbard and Souther said It looked as long as a fence roll Holding the blade by the back Lincoln looked closely at the edge and then after the manner of one who has been grinding a scythe or a corn knife he began to feel gingerly tho edge with the ball of his thumb By this time Jill Souther was tremendously Interested Hold Ing the sabre by tho handle Lincoln stood up and looked About him Ho evidently saw what hn was looking for 4n a willow tree several feet away liaising tho

before the country had dubbed the victor of Fort Donelson Unconditional Surrender Grant and had made a hero of him Now with the disputed responsibility for tbo PUtsburg Land ing surprise there arose a mighty clamor on tho part of certain newspapers and politicians that Grant be superseded Representative Blow talked freely with the president Ho told him what ho bad known of Grant before the war and mentioned the fear entertained by somo persons that Grant drank too much to be Intrusted with high command Mr Blow was a smooth spoken man with sharp black eyes quick to appreciate humor Ho had been a very successful business man for years before he became Interested In politics Ho was rather below tho average height President Lincoln listened thoughtfully until Mr Blow had Expressed himself and then asked with apparent seriousness what brand of whisky Grant drank Explaining why he sought the In formation ho used tho language about sending some to the other generals which has become historic Some men who know Lincoln do not believe the political history which has been written credits him with his full part In the genesis of tho Republican party They remember where Lincoln stood toward tho last Whig conventions They recall the movement to make him vicepresident on tho ticket with Fremont in 1856 which fortunately was abandoned on grounds of expediency And they mention political acts of Lincoln which possess no small significance when taken with subsequent events John R Spears of Tallula know Lincoln from 1S33 when ho was a surveyor lie was prominent In the politics of tho day lie heard Lincoln speak in the liar rison convention of Illinois In 1840 and In support of tho nomination of Clay before tho Whig convention of 1111 nois In 1844 and on other occasions before tho Republi can party organized Mr Spears has this recollection of tho beginning of the Republican movement Lincoln called a meeting of a tow friends at a coun try store where Tallula now Is He had been a surveyor when the county now Menard was a part of Sanga mou Ho know almost everybody There were 40 or 50 In tho gathering at the store Mr Lincoln made a talk reviewing political conditions and offering suggestions as to the future lie called for some paper to write down what position ho thought should be taken upon tho ques tlons of the day especially upon slavery There was no paper to bo had Lincoln drew a newspaper from his pocket lay down on tho cellar door and wrote on tho margin the essence of tho principles which formed the Republican party This 1 believe was tho first meeting of the kind In tho United States It was a year or moro before the convention at Bloomington where the Ropub lican party of Illinois was started and whero Lincoln made one of the best speeches of his life which was lostMr Spears docs not recall the exact time of this moot ing at which Lincoln wroto on tho margin of a newspaper the first Republican platform Ho knows that the meet- Ing was called by Lincoln two years or more beforo the national convention which nominated Fremont In 1856 lie knows that this enunciation of Republican principles was before tho Bloomington convention Martin L Bundy wrote from Newcastle Ind to the I Lincoln Centennial association contributing to the In formation about Lincolns earliest relations with tho for nation of the Republican party The Whig National convention of 1848 Mr Bandy writes was completely under the control of Toombs and Stephens of Georgia They had decided that Gen Taylor should be nominated on no platform but his record as a soldier and slaveholder Grcoley was there from New York offering to guarantee that that state would cast Its electoral vote for Clay If tho convention would nominate him but the Taylor managers would listen to no such proposition no doubt for the reason that Clays record as a slaveholder was not satisfactory Lincoln and Greeley both agreed after tho Informal ballot thatIt was useless to press tho name of Clay any longer as tho nomination of Taylor was a foregone conclusion and It so turned out In tho convention of 185C when Fremont was nominated tho name of Lincoln was suggested for vicepresident but tho leaders Seemed It wise to give tho place to William M Dayton of New Jersey and It was perhaps fortunate for Lincoln that tho convention did so Tho 8th of August tile Republicans had a rally at Springfield Christian county sent up a delegation Wil liam T Baker who while a boy had ground Lincolns bags of corn for him during two years at the mil on tbo Snngamon In tho railsplitting days was marshal of the delegation Wo mustered 105 wagons most of them having four or six horses and loaded with Christian county Republi cans said Mr Baker On tho way up wo camped over night on tho Sangamon

como in to attend the rally AsI rode up at the head of my delegation Lincoln left tho steps came out to us took me by tho hand and said How are you Baker Then hn looked down the long line of wagons and men and said Baker It must take a good many men to run a threshing machine In Christian county While there were only seven joint debates of formal character under tho challenge there were other occa dons when Douglas and Lincoln filled appointments BO close together as to afford the excitement of personal passages Lincoln was anxious to get before the Demo cratic supporters of Douglas lie

now enter upon a new epoch of continuous development which will lead us without pause to Acts 1126 h e from Hebrew disciples at Jerusa lem to Greek Christians at Antlocb Ilackara There were two classes of Jews at Jerusalem The Grecians v 1 R V Grecian Jews Hellenists those Jews who had settled in Greek speaking countries who spoke tho common Greek dialect In place of tho vernacular Aramaic current In Pales tine and who would be more or less Influenced by Greek thought and cus toms and broadened to accept of the necessary new development of Christianity Against the Hebrews v 1 the Jews of Palestine who com posed by far the larger part of the church of Jerusalem Between these two classes there arose a complaint and murmuring be cause the widows of the foreign Jews did not receive their natural share of the support given to the homo Jews And yet they needed it even more than the widows who were among acquain tances and friends The Difficulty Settled by tho Organization of Laymen for tho Work Tbo church elected seven men to at tend to this and similar duties leav fag the apostles freo to give their whole time to preaching prayer and training the disciples The qualities required In these oft cers of tho church were 1 of good report 2 full of tho Holy Spirit 3 of wise Judgment 4 full of faith Character Sketch of Stephen 1 A young man of such original genius and special grace that there was noth ing he might not have attained to had ho been allowed to live His wonder ful openness of mind his perfect freedom from all the prepossessions pre judices and superstitions of his day his courage his eloquence his spot less character with a certain sweet and at the same time majestic man ner all combined to set Stephen in the very front rank both of service and of risk Ho was already all but the foremost man of his dayAlex ander Whyte BIblo Characters 2 He was a man of power the power of faith and character aflame with tha Holy Spirit 3 lie was full of grace and of graces and tho beauty of holiness Grace and power do not always go to gether Some things aro beautiful but not strong Some tMngs are strong and not beautiful Mow seldom is a Boanerges son

answer to tho charges Against him 2 Ills very use of the Scriptures is a proof that he received them and did not blaspheme by repudiating them 3 Ho defends what the Christians thought of the temple by the history In the Bible they accepted 4 lie shows that the Jesus ho preached was the ono foretold by Moses G Ho shows that they who pretend ed to uphold the law were themselves breaking It as did their fathers whom the prophets condemned Saul standing by anti deeply Im pressed by the scene and not long aft erward changed into a disciple of Jesus shows how tho blood of martyrs became the seed of tho church A seemingly ordinary man was con verted opened his heart to receive Iho Holy Spirit and became ono of the most Influential of men So it may be true of us Out of troublous times

wantedNext to the Japanese question In tho Interest of Washington Is tho Census Bill which tho President has vetoed because it provided for the appointment of the Census workers under the spoils system whoreb tho Congressmen and politicians can s get good Jobs at high wages for their friends even though the latter car sot do the work well Mr Roosevelt treated Congress to a little plain language In the message which accoi panled the corrupt bill back to the Capitol At first the members were inclined to talk big about passln the bill over the Presidents yeti but they seem to know very well that the people do not want their money wasted on goodtornothln workmen who are politically Influer Ual Therefore the bill has been quietly sent back to the Committee to stay until Taft Is President Ihey dare do so at the time the billI will be passed again and sent to Taft But It Is more probable that It will be silently changed so as to provide for efficient clerks and will be passed as unobtrusively as possible A GREAT INAUGURAL The Inauguration Day Is only about three weeks away and expectation here is mounting to the pitch of excitement Congress voted 16000 for the occasion and

try- Ing to give the country a real tarlfJ reform The balance of power it held by two independents on the committee John Wesley Gaines ol Tennessee who appears tQ enjoy holding a power within his hand during the last brief days of his sla- In Congress and Crumpacker of Inv diana The result Is a dead halt for the time It Is feared that the com mittee will not be able to report a bill at the beginning of the special session Moreover the House Insurgents who want to reform the rules and oust the despotic rule of the Speaker are getting up a pretty good plan of campaign which may well engage Congress for some weeks after its assembling They intend to abstain from the Republican caucus In large enough numbers so that the Republi can organization will not have a majority ot the House and cannot adopt the rules as usual Then they hope to have the Committees appointed by election by the House Instead of designation by the Speaker So that the tariff legislation is facing a bad situation Speaker Cannon says he fears that Congress will be forced to sit all summer It there Is any thing in analogies says Adam Bede Congress must be divinely right in all its actions for It

Ideas as to what constitutes a bad trust and what makes a trust good As usual his appeal raIls on stony ears Congress believes that It knows more about any given thing than any fX pert student thereof

neglecting PURE FOOD FIGHT One of the most popular men In Washington Is Dr Harvey Wile Government Chemist who has been exposing the use ot harmful Ingredients in canned goods whiskies and JO forth for

Roosevelt appointed a court ot Bl1 peals consisting ot several leading college professors ot Chemistry who have just declared that benzoate cf soda is not harmful and that Dr Wiley was wrong In preventing tho canners from using It Congress be friends Wiley and will not appropi ate money for this board of appeals The Pure Food Law la generally 8Up posed to be unconstitutional anywa and there

issued a call for a meet- Ing ot that committee for Fcbruai 18 in this city At this meeting the plan put forward by Mr W O Bradley to wipe out the Republican committees in the cities of Loulsvlll Lexington Newport Covlngtoi Owensboro Henderson and Paduca will be considered Mr Wlnn has no option but to calla meeting of the committee and In fact most Republicans ot all faction are anxious to have the Bradley pro position brought up and decided I n his letter asking for a meeting of the State Central Committee Mr Bradle asked that the meeting be held be fore February 16- REPUBLICANS ARE INTERESTS The revolutionary proposition of Mr Bradley to abolish the regular He publican committees elected by the people and substitute for them In all matters relative to the making r nominations Convention Commissions named by the State Centre Committee In Imitation ot the Gdeb law has aroused the Republicans of Kentucky as nothing since tho passage ot the Goebel law has done From the First to the Eleventh district this plan the adoption of which It Is generally accepted would mean tho dot tructlon of the Republican party In Kentucky has been the chief topic of conversation among Republican politicians and tho opposition to the plan Is overwhelming While noth- Ing can be stated on authority as to the attitude of the thirteen member ot the State Central Committee until they arrive In this city it la believed by the large majority of well informed Republicans that the Brad ley rules will be rejected by a declslv majority and that Mr Bradley will be given a rebuko even more severe than when he was defeated for delegate to Chicago by the last Republican convention DETAILS OF BRADLEY PLAN The plan proposed by Mr Bradley for Kentucky Republicans has already been explained In the Evening Post In brief it Is as follows In all counties containing cities or the first and second class Mr Bradley proposes to create Convention Commissions to be composed of three men to be named by the State Central Committee and to be appointed annually Just as under the Goebe law The plan follows the lines ot the joebel law closely These convention Commissions are to be given entire barge of the making ot Republican nominations in all the cities ot the State and are delegated power tc lame the election officers canvass th returns and virtually to make nominations The regular local Republican committees in theso counties are to- be superseded The whole plan is a copy ot the Goebel law and Is designed to destroy local authority and local responsibility In the making of He publican nominations and to build up an oligarchy with a faction ot the State Central Committee dictating all lepubllcan nominations regardless ol tho wishes of the Republican voters In the separate districts A Noble Parent ID writing a sketch of Washington a lupll ended her essay by saying Washington tarried a famous belle lartlm Custis and In due time became the father of his countryDo

prevent a anI students the exact situation It is always the policy of the College to keep Its students fully Informed as to any matter which might in any way affect them and so they were told about this and all who Wished had the opportunity to go home It is good proof of the trust which stu dents hero havo In the College and their faith In the doctor that so far only eight or ten boys have been ex cused because of their fear of the disease Not a single girl has been so excused and the rest of the thou sand students are tending to business as usual Tho boy who 13 sick John MQulnn of Campton has had a very light case and Is now about well It Is believed that he was taken to the hospital while the disease was yet In such a stage that ho could not spread in fection and tho doctor does not think any more cases will develop However he has taken every precaution and every student who might hava been exposed has been vaccinated and carefully watched The boys have be haved splendidly none of them has shown any fear or expressed any desire to go home and all have shown perfect selfpossession and common sense It Is fortunate that Berea Is eo well quipped to care for a case of this kind for with such a doctor as Dr Cowley and the trained nurses who care for patients at the splendidly equipped new hospital a sick boy or girl will get much better care than ho or she could even at home and there Is practically np dan ger of any epidemic getting out of control as so as to endanger the rest of the students In fact while we have less sickness at Berea than almost any where else Berea

Street Berea Kentucky u L ABOUT ADVERTISING NO 8 The Cellar Hole and the Sewer HoleJ0 By Herbert Kaufman I A coal cart stopped before an office building in Washington and the driver dismounted removed the cover from a manhole ran out his chute and pro ceeded to empty the load An old negro strolled over and stood watching him Suddenly the black man glanced down and immediately burst into a fit of uncontrollable laughter which continued for several minutes The cart driver looked at him in amusement II Say Uncle he askedlido you always laugh when you see coal going into a cellar The negro sputtered around for a few moments and then holding his hands to his aching sides managed to say No sah but I jest busts wlten I sees it gain down a sewer The advertiser who displays lack of judgment in selecting the newspapers which carry his copy often confuses the sewer and the cellar All the money that is put into newspapers isnt taken out again by any means The fact that all papers possess a certain physical likeness doesnt by any means signify asimilarity in character and its character in a newspaper that brings returns The editor who conducts a journalistic sewer finds a different class of readers than the publisher who respects himself enough to respect his readers What goes into a newspaper largely determines the class of homes into which the newspaper goes An irresponsible scandalmongering muckraking sheet is logically not supported by the buying classes of people It may be perused by thousands of readers but such readers are seldom purchasers of advertised goods Its the cleancut steady normalminded citizens who form the bone and sinew and muscle of thecom munity Its the sane selfrespecting dependable newspaper that enters their homes and its the hojiiI sale that indicates the strength of an advertising medium No cleanminded father of a family wishes to have his wife and children brought in contact with the most maudlin and banal phases of life He defends them from the sensational editor and the unpleasant advertiser He subscribes to a newspaper which he docs not fear to leave about the house Therefore the respectable newspaper can always be counted upon to produce more sales than one which may even own a larger circulation but whose distribu I tion is in ten editions among unprofitable citizens You can no more expect to sell goods to people who havent money than you can hope to pluck oysters from bushes It isnt the number of readers reached but the number of readers whose purses can be reached that constitutes the value of circulation Its one thing to arouse their attention but its a far different thing to get their money The mind may be willing but the pockctbook is weak J If you had the choice of a thousand acres of desert land or a hundred acres of oasis youd select the fertile spot realizing that the larger tract had less value because it would be less productive 11- I Just so the advertiser who really understands how he is spending his money does not measure by bulk alone He counts productivity first He takes care that he is not putting his money into a sewer Copyright 190S by Tribune Company Chicago CrampsThousands of ladies

Side of Farm Life Be Built UpWork for the Federal Department Washington With the report or tho country life commission President Roosevelt sent the following message to both houses of congress To the Senate and House of Representatives I transmit herewith the report of the commission on country life At the outlet I desire to point out that not a dollar of tho public money has been paid to any commissioner for his work on the commission The report shows the general condition of farming life In the open country and points out its larger problems It Indicates ways In which the government na tlonal and state may show tho people how to solve some of these problems and It suggests a continuance of the work which the commission began Judging by SO public hearings to which farmers and farmers wives from l0 states and territories came and from 20000 answers to printed questions sent out by the department of agriculture he commission linda that the general level of country life la high compared with any preceding time or with any oth er land If It has in recent years slipped down In some places it has risen In more places Its progress has been general It not uniform Tet farming does not yield either the profit or the satisfaction that It ought to yield and may be made to yield There U discontent in the country and In places dlscouracemcrloarmers as a class do and the move ment to tho towns though I am happy to say less than formerly is still strong Under our system It Is helpful to pro mote discussion of ways In whl h the people can help themselves There are three main directions In which the farmers can help themselves namely better farming better business and better living on the farm The national department of agriculture which has rendered service equaled by no other similar department In any other tlmo or place the state departments of agriculture the state col leges of agriculture and the mechanical arts especially through their extension work the state ngrlcultural experiment stations the Farmers union the Grange the agricultural press and other similar agencies have all combined to place with In the reach of the American farmer an amount and quality of agricultural Infor matlon which If applied would enable him over large areas to double the production of the farm For Better Business and Living The object of the commission on coun ry life therefore Is not to help the farmer raise better crops but to call his mention to the opportunities for better business and better living on the farm If country life is to become what it should be and what I believe It ultimate ly will beone of the moat dignified de sirable and soughtafter ways of earn a living the farmer must take advan tage not only of the agricultural knowl edge which Is at his disposal but of the methods which have raised and continue to raise the standards of living and In lellrence In other callings Those engaged In all other Industrial ind commercial callings have found It necessary under modern economic con rittnnn to organize themselves for mu tual advantage and for the protection of e r nv nirl r Interests In relation to other Interests The farmers of every progressive European country have realized this esesnllaK fact and have found In the cooperative system exactly the form of business combination they needNow whatever the state may do to ward Improving the practice of agri culture It is not within the sphere of any government to reorganize the farm ers business or reconstruct the social life of farming communities It Is how ever quite within Its power to use Its Influence and the machinery of publicity which It can control for calling public at tention to the needs of the facts For ex ample It Is the obvious duty of the gov ernment to call the attention of farmers to the growing monopolization of water power The farmers above all should have that power on reasonable terms for heap transportation for lighting their homes and for innumerable uses in the tally tasks of the farm Necessity for CoOperation It Is true that country life has Improved greatly In attractiveness health and comfort and that the farmers earnings are M her than they were Dut city life is advancing even more rapidly because of the greater attention which is being given by the citizens of the towns to their own- atterment For just this reason the In troduction of effective agricultural co Deration throughout the United States III of the first Importance Where farmers are organized cooperatively they not only avail themselves much more read Iy of business opportunities and im proved methods but It Is found that the organizations which bring them together In the work of their lives are used also for social and Intellectual advancement The cooperative plan Is the best plant rltlnn wherever men have the right spirit to carry It out Under this plan any business undertaking Is man aged by a committee every man has one vote and only one vote and everyone gets profits according to what he sells or buys or supplies It develops In dividual responsibility and has a moral as well as a financial value over any other plan I desire only to take counsel with the Farmers as fellow cilzens It Is not the problem of the farmers alone that I am discussing with them but a problem which affects every city as well as every farm In the country It Is a problem which the working farmers will have to solve for themselves but It Is a problem which also affects In only less degree all the rest of us and therefore If we can render any help toward Its solution It Is not only our duty but our Interest to do 10 Work to Help the Farmers The commission has tried to help the Farmers to see clearly their own problem and to see It as a whole to distin guish clearly between what the government can do and what the farmers must do for themselves and It wishes to bring not only the farmers but the nation as- a whole to realize that the growing of crops though an essential part Is only- a part of country life Crop growing Is the essential foundation but It Is no less r ientlal that the farmer shall get in adequate return for what he grows and It Is no less sentlalIndeell It Is literally vital that ho and his wife and his children shall lead the right hind of life For this reason It Is of the first In portanco i r Ie Units States depart ment of agriculture through which aj prime agent the Ideas the commission stands for must reach tho people should become without delay In fact a depart mcnt of country life fitted to deal not only with crops but also With all the larger aspects of life In the open country From all that has beet dono and learned three great general and Immediate needs of country lifo stand out First effective cooperation among farmers to put them on a level with the organized interests with which they dc businessSecond a new kind of schools in the country which shall teach the chlldre as much outdoors as Indoors and per haps more so that they will prepare for country life and not as at present main ly for life In town Third better means of communication Including good roads and a parcels post which tho country people are everywhere and rightly unanimous In demanding- To these may well be added better san Ration for easily preventable diseases hold several million country people In the slavery of continuous ill health Duty of the Government The commission points out and I con cur In tho conclusion that tho most im portant help that the government wheth er national or state can give Is to show the people how to go about these tasks of organization education and communication with the best and quickest results This can be done by the collection and spread of Information One community can thus be Informed of what other communities have done and one country of what other countries have done Such help by tho peoples government would lead to a comprehensive plan of organi zation education and communication and make the farming country better to live In for intellectual and social reasons ai well as for purely agricultural reasons The only recommendation I submit li that an appropriation of JI3000 be provided to enable the commission to digest the material It has collected and to collect and to digest much more that li within Its reach and thus complete Its work This would enable the commis sion to gather In the harvest of lug gestion which la resulting from the dls cussion It has stirred up The commissioners have served without compensa tion and I do not recommend any appropriation for their services but only for the expenses that will be required to finish the task they have begun To Develop Country Community To Improve our system of agriculture seems to me the most urgent of the task which lie before us But It cannot In my judgment be effected by measures which touch only the material and tech nical side of the subject the wholo bust ness and life of the farmer must also be taken Into account Such considerations led me to appoint the commission on country life Our object should b to help dcveloh In the country commu nlty the great Ideals of the community life as well as of personal character One of the most Important adjuncts to this end must be the country church and I Invite your attention to what the com mission says of the country church and of the need of an extension of such work as that of the Young Mens Christian as sociation In country communities Let me lay special emphasis upon what the commission says at the very end of Its report on personal Ideas and Iccat leadership Everything resolves Itself In th end Into erne question of personality Neither society nor government can do much for country life unless there Is vol untary response In the personal Ideal of the men and women who live In the country In the development of charac ter the home should be more Important than the school or than society at large When once the basic material needs have been met high Ideals may be quite In dependent of Income but they cannot b realized without sufficient income to pro vide adequate foundation and where the community at large Is not financially prosperous It Is Impossible to develop a high average personal and community Ideal In short the fundamental facts of human nature apply to men and wom en who live In the country just as they apply to men and women who live In the towns Given a sufficient foundation of material well being the Influence of the farmers wives on their children be comes tho factor of first Importance In determining the attitude of the next gen oration toward farm life The farmer should realize that the person who most needs consideration on the farm Is his wife I do not In the least mean that she should purchase ease at the expense of duty Neither man nor woman Is really happy or really useful save on condition of doing his or her duty If the wom an shirks her duty as housewife as homo keeper as the mother whoso prime function Is to bear and rear a sufficient number of healthy children then she Is not entitled to our regard Dut If she does her duty she Is more entitled to air regard even than the man who does his duty and the man should show special consideration for her needs Welfare of Nation at Stake I warn my countrymen that the great recent progress made In city life Is not a full measure of our civilization for our civilization rests on the wholesomeness the attractiveness and the completeness as well as tho prosperity of life In the country Tho men and women on the farms stand for what Is fundamentally best and moat needed in our American life Upon the development of country lift rests ultimately our ability by meth ods of farming requiring the highest In telligence to continue to feed and clothe the hungry nations to supply the city wh fresh blood clean bodies and clear brains that can endure the terrific strain of modern life we need tIe

Washington Tho report of the commission on country life made to the president was read in both houses of congress Substantially the re port was as follows To the President The commission on country

condition of Improvement Most Prominent Deficiencies Tet It Is true notwithstanding all this progress as measured by his torical standards that agriculture la not commercially profitable as it Is entitled to be for the labor and energy that the farmer expends and the risks that he assume and that the social conditions In the open country are far short of their poaalbllltles We must measure our

Is small and the volume of his transactions limited and he usually stands practically alone against organized Interests In the general readjustment of modern life due to the great changes In manu factures and commerce Inequalities and discriminations have arisen and naturally the separate man suffers most The unattached man has problems that gpvernment should under standThe reasons for the lack of a highly organized rural society are very many as the full report explains The lead log specific causes are A lack of knowledge on the part of farmers of the exact agricultural con ditions and possibilities of their re gionsLack of good training for country life In the schools lAck of good highway facilities The widespread continuing deple tion of soils with the Injurious effect on rural life A general need of new and active leadershipOther causes contributing to the general result lire Lack of any ads quate system of agricultural credit whereby the farmer may readily secure loans on fair terms the short age of labor a condition that Is often complicated by Intemperance among workmen lack of institutions and In centives that tie the laboring man to the soil the burdens and the narrow life of farm women lack of adequate supervision of public health Nature of the Remedies Some of theremedles lie with the national government some of them with the states and communities lu their corporate capacities some with volun tary organizations and some with In dividuals acting alone From the great number of suggestions that have been made covering every phase of country life the commission now enumerates those that seem to be most fundamental or most needed at the present timeCongress can remove some ot the handicaps of the farmer and It can also set some kinds of work In motion such as Tho encouragement of a system of thoroughgoing surveys of all agricul tural regions in order to take stook and to develop a scientifically and economically sound country life The establishing of a nationalized system of extension work In rural communities through all the land grant colleges with the people at their homes and on their farms A thoroughgoing Investigation by experts of the middleman system of withIdisadvantages respect to taxation transportation rates cooperation or ganizations and credit and the general business system An Inquiry Into the control and use of the streams of the United ftatea with the object of protecting the peo ple In their ownership and of reYing- to agricultural uses such benefits as should be reserved for these purposes The establishing of a highway env glneerlngscrvlce or equivalent rIrAnl nation to be at the call of the states In working out effective and econom ical highway systems The establishing of a system otI parcels post and postal savings banks And providing some means or agency for the guidance of public opinion toward the development of a real rural society that shell rest di rectly on the land Other remedies recommended for consideration by congress are Tho enlargement of tho United States bureau of education to enable- It to stimulate and coordinate the ed ucational work of the nation Careful attention to the farmers Interests In legislation on the tariff on regulation of railroads control or regulation of corporations and of spec ulation legislation In respect of rivers forests and tho utilization of swamp lands- Increasing the powers of the federal government In respect to the mpervlslon and control of tho public healthProviding such regulations an will enable the states that do not permit the sale of liquors to protect themselves from traffic from adjoining itates In setting all these forces In motion the cooperation of the states win be necessary and In many cases definite state laws may greatly aid the work Ucmedlrs ot a more general nature nro A broad campaign of publicity that must be undertaken until all the people fire Informed on tho wholo sub ject of rural life and until there Is an awakened appreciation of tho neces city of giving this phase of our national development as much attention as has been given to other phases or Interests a quickened sense of re sponsibility In all the country people to the community and tho stale In the conserving ot soil fertility and In the necessity for diversifying farming In order to conserve this fertility and to develop n better rural society and also In the better safeguarding of tho strength and happiness of the farm women a more widespread conviction of tho necessity of organization not only for economic but for social purposes this organization to be more or less cooperative so that all the people may share equally In the benefits and have voice In the essential affairs of the community a realization on the part of the farmer that ho has a did tinct natural responsibility toward the laborer In providing him with good living facilities and in helping him In every way to be a man among men niii a realization on the part of nil to people of the obligation to protect and develop the natural scenery and attractiveness of tho open country Underlying Problem of Country Life The commission has pointed out a number of remedies that are extreme ly Important but running through all of these remedies are several great forces or principles which must lie utilized In the endeavor to solve the problems of rountry life All the people should recognize what these fun damental forces and agencies are- KnowledgeTo Improve any situ ation the underlying facts must bo understood Tho farmer must have ex act knowledge ot Iris business and of the peculiar conditions under which ho works The United States depart ment of agriculture and thu experi ment stations and colleges are rapidly acquiring and distributing this knowl edge but the farmer may not bo able to apply It to the best advantage because of lack of knowledge of his own soils climate animal and plant dls eases markets and other local facts Tho farmer Is entitled to know what are tho advantages and disadvantages of his conditions and environment A thoroughgoing system of surveys In detail of the exact conditions under lying farming In every locality Is now an Indispensable need to complete and apply the wwrk of the great agricultural Institutions As an occupation agriculture is a means of developing our Internal resources we cannot develop these resources until we know exactly what they are Education There must be not only a fuller scheme of public education but n new kind of education adapted to the real needs of the farming people Tint country schools are to be so redirected that they shall educate their pupils In terms of the dally life Op portunities for training toward the agricultural colleges are to be multi plied and made broadly effective livery person on the land old or young In school or out of school educated or Illiterate must have a chance to receive the information necessary for a successful business and for a healthful comfortable resourceful life both In home and neighborhood This mean redoubled efforts for better country schools and a vastly Increased interest In the welfare of country boys and girls on the part of those who pay the school taxes Education by means of agriculture Is to be A part of our regular public school work Special agricultural schools ass to he organized There la to lip n wallde veloped plan of extension teaching conducted by the agricultural colleges by meAns of the printed page faceto face talks and demonstration or ob jest lesson designed to reach every farmer and his family at or near their homos with knowledge and stimulus In every department of country life Organization There must he a vast enlargement ofvoluntnry organized ef fort among farmers themselves It Is indispensable that farmers shall work together for their common Interests and for the national welfare It they QO not do this no governmental netlvl ty no legislation not even better schools will greatly avail The farm ers are nevertheless relatively unor ganized We have only begun to de velop business cooperation In America Farmers do not Influence legislation aa they should They need a more fully organized social and recreative lifeSpiritual Forces The forces and Institutions that make for morality and spiritual Ideals among rural peo ple must be energized We miss the heart of the problem If we neglect to foster personal character and neighborhood rlghteouaness The best way to preserve Ideals for private conduct and public life la to build up tho Insti tutions of religion The church has treat power of leadership Tho whole people should understand that It Is vitally Important to stand behind tho rural church and to help It to become a great power In developing concrete country life Ideals It Is especially Important that the country church rec ognize that It has a social responsibili ty to tho entire community as well as- a religious responsibility to Its own group of people- Recommendations of the Commission The commission recommends all tin correctives that have been mentioned under the head of The nature of the remedies It does not wish to ills criminate between Important meas ures of relief for existing conditions It has purposely avoided Indorsing any particular bill now before con gress no matter what Its value or ob ject There are however In the opinion of the commission two or three great movements of the utmost consequence that should be set under way at this earliest possible time because they are fundamental to the whole problem of ultimate permanent reconstruction these call for special explanation Taking Stock of Country Life There should bo organized as eX- plained In the main report under gov ernmental leadership a comprehensive plan for an exhaustive study or survey of all the condtlons that surround the business of farming and tne people who live In tho country In order to take stock of our resources and to supply the farmer with local knowl edge Federal anti slate governments agricultural colleges and other educa tional agencies organizations of rant oils types and Individual students of the problem should be brought Into cooperation for this great work of Inv vestigating with minute care all agri cultural nnd country life conditions Nationalized Extension Work Kach state college of agriculture should bo empowered to organize as soon as practicable a complete department of college extension to managed as to reach every person on the land In Its state with both Information and In spiration The work should Include such forms of extension teaching as lectures bulletins reading courses correspondence courses dcmonstra lion and other menus of reaching the people at home and on their farms It should be dcslgne to forward not only the business of agriculture but sanitation education home making and all Interests of country life 0 FIGHTING RUM It Is No Dress ParadeEvery One
