PFAIRFIELD COUNTY NEWS,
TOLD BY CORRESPONDENTS
(Continued from page three.)
Wi4 some one tell us just what
the government means by per cents
in estimatiig the crop yield? The
July report was 70.8 or 11,400,000
bales; now the August report is 57
and a crop of 10,600,000 bales. Here
a drop kof 13 per cent is less than
- one million bales.
According to this proportion a
crop average of 100 per cent would
be only I about 8,000,000 bales.
What on earth is getting wrong
with Fairfield politi's? Heretofore
have had clean politics, but this
the mud slinging is all in pri
v1 and not on the stump. It's right
to tell the tru-.h on a fellow, and if
you know that the candidate is unfit
for the office it's your duty to tell
your feliow men, but don't lie on him.
Tomorrow will settle the political
atmosphere, at least for a while.
Here's to the fellow that wins out!
You've fought a good fight, you've
been mighty polite. thus the salary
is yours for four more years.
And to the fellcv: who loses. die
game; it's better to hu:ve fought and
lost than never to have fought At all.

*It was surely an all-day picnic, as
it was almost sun-down before a
tired, happy crowd turned their faces
homeward, wishing that the picnic
was more than an annual a.(fair, and

ORIGIN OF TERM "UNCLE SAM".
Samuel Wilson, popularly known as
"Uncle Sam", was a government meat
inspector at Troy, N. Y., during the
war of 1812. A contractor named
Elbert-Anderson purchased a quantity
of prbvisions, and barrels were mark
ed " E. A"., initials of purchaser, and
"U. S." for United States. Letters
"U. S." were not familiar to Wil
son's assistants who inquired what
they meant. A facetious fellow ans
wered, "I 4on't know, unless they
mean "Uncl Sam". The joke spread,
cartoonists took it up and the name
"Uncle Sam" has been in popular
parlance since. -At least that is pop
ular idea of its origin, though some
autliorities think that soldiers first
applied term of the "U. S.". on knap
sacks in war of 1812.

All countries have been giving at

Germany has far outstripped the
others. While French and American
"gliders" were undergoing tests for
prizes at Clermont Ferrand in France,

that at Grsfeld, Germany, Herr
Hentzen, a tudent flyer of the Han

in the air more than two hours. A
little later the German made another
gliding lasting three hours and 10
minutes. It was learned that Ger
man scientists had made a detailed
study of the subject for several years,
using birds for models. Other fliers
from the scho~g succeeded in remain

STORY OF LOUIS XIV's HEART.
Since ancient times hearts of roy
al and other important persons have
been objects of special veneration.
Hearts of kings have in past receiv
ed' separate burial. Urns contain
ing hearts of Hapsburgs can be seen
at .the church of Augustine Friars
at Vienna. Heart of Louis XIV was
preserved with others in abbey of
St. Denis near Paris. In 1792, during
revolution, his heart was stolen and
sold to Earl Harlourt of England.
Dean Buckland of Westminister abbey
was invited to inspect the heart. He
was eating at the time and a waiter
passed it to him on a silver tray.
Heart was shrunken to size of a small
nut and Dean Buckland, being short
sighted, ate it in mistake for a piece
of bread. He died not long after
wards. There is also a story. that
Napoleon's heart was eaten by rats.
Last English sovereign whose heart
das,removed to be separtely preserv
ed was Queen Anne.
"I suffered with chronic
constipation that would bring on
very severe headaches," says
Mrs. Stephen H. Kincer, of
R. F. D. 1, Cripple Creek, Va.
"I tried different medicines and
did not get relief. The head
aches became veryfrequent. I
C id took it for a headache, and
the relief was very quick, and
it was so long before I had
another headache. Now I just

"NOT WORTH A RAP".
Do you give a rap about the origirk
of the expression "not worth a rap"?
If you do it might be interesting to
know that the word "rap" was the
name of a coin circulated in Ireland
during the reign of George 1. It was
a base half penny, actually worth
only about half a farthing in English
money, issued temporarily by the
British government because of the
great scarcity of small coin. Later
a counterfeit was passed for a rap
and it became custorpary to say "1
would'nt give a rap for this or that,"
meaning that one wouldn't give much.
The reader may recall a similar ex
pression which had its origin during
our Revolutionary wvar. The paper
dollars issued by the continental con
gress without any~ bullion by which
to redeem them became so notoriously
worthless about the third and fourth
years 'of the war that when a person
wanted to say a thing was extremely
worthless he would say it was'nt
worth a "continental", referring to
the continental dollar bills.
"Of course, I don't know," began
the sarcastic boarder, "but it strik'es
me this. chicken
"Now, what's the matter with the;
chicken ?" interrupted the landlady.
"Oh, nothing," answered the lodlger,
"only it is evidently the offspring of
a hard-boiled egg."
NATION MOURN$ MICHAEL
Apparently all Ireland joined in
mourning for Michael Collins, slain
head of the Free State, first at Cork
and then at Dublin. Thousands with
uncovered heads passed before his
coffin lying in state, and the leader
of the republican band that ambuished
him, Tom Hales, threw down his arms
and offered to join the national side.
Collins and his little party, it was re
ealed, fought the much larger at
tacking party until the latter were
put to flight, and it was at the end
of the fray that the Free State lead
er received his death wound. The
republicans no longer hold any town
of importance, but they have continu
ed to carry on ambushing expeditions
and sniping operations in various
parts of the dountry. A hard fight
occured on the grounds of Blarney
castle, near Cork, where 12 repub
licans were killed and a large number
wounded. Outlying p6sts in Dublin
were also attacked during the night
but the republicans were repulsed.
There has been much speculation as
to who will succeed Collins as head
of the government.

E1C9NOQJC LAWS INXOQ -.BL&,'
"The law of supply and' demand
calls for a return to normalcy, and
wage workers, while aiming blows at
employers, are really bucking up
against inexorable natural laws.
These laws rlrmitted high wages for
workers and high interest rates for
capital during the war period. Since
then these laws have forced the in
terest rate down, and they will not
permit the retention of war-time
"It may be a hard pill for both
Capital and Labor to swallow, but
the fact remains that they are sub
ject to he law of supply and demaild
and they cannot escape it. Regard
less of outside interference, "wage
earner-employer" difficulties will al
ways be settled in accordance with
the requirements of natural laws and
all the ills an# hardships of the
struggle between the two factions
result from resistance of these laws.
"It seems to me that the time has
come when we, as a nation, should
take steps which will enable the nat
ural laws to operate without the pain
ful and damaging struggles which are
now the rule, and which are not pro
ductive of permanent good to either
employer or employee.
DIVIDING THE PROFITS.
"The fight between employer and
wage earner has been described as
having to do with a division of. the
profits. If that were true, the prob
lem would be much simpler than it
really is. Division of the profits is
merely a phase of the matter: the
big probiem is to make the profits
in the nearest pace. It is astound
ing how much ignorance there is rel
ative to the profits of business. The
lay mind assumes that the margin
between the original cost and the ulti
mate selling price is profit. The part
that operating costs and overhead ex
penses play in wiping out this mar
gin gets scant consideration.
"When a business pays a dollar for
raw material and sells the finished
product for $2.00, the layman says
there is a drllar profit, but as often
as hot such a margin between cost
and price means a loss. It may cost
onsiderable' to turn the raw product
into the finished article since the lab
or involved and the equipment used
may be a very big expense. On top
of that there will be storage charges
and freight bills and sales . costs.
There are a dozen charges that enter
in and conspire to wipe out the mar
gin, and not the least of these is rep
resented by the tax that the business
"The sum total of all jts operating
and overhead charges may easily
wipe out what appears to be a wide
margin between raw product costs
nd finished article prices. Men
work for a livelihood and Capital
works for interest, and there always
will be room for difference of opinion
as to what constitutes a good liveli
hood and a good interest, but there
need be nd iluestion about this fact
neither men nor moi y will work
without a return. TE PROBLEM
F WAGE EARNER AND EM
PLOYER THEN, IS NOTP TO DI
VIDE PROFITS BUT TO ASSURE
PROFITS, FOR CERTAINLY THEY
MiST BE NMADE BEFORE THEY
CAN BE DIVIDED. DIVIDING
