rlTo know Charlie Barrett well
is to know a clean, square, reso
lute, purposeful man. He has
devoted every moment of his
time practically from its first
p ouny beginning to organizing
and making great and powerful
this organization of farmers.
By his devotion, his steadfast
adherence to high principles, he
has-seen the organization spread
from the Atlantic to the Pacific,
and from bleak Maine to sunlit
Florida.
He has kept his own head, a
mighty level head at that on hic
square shoulders, too and steer

lacies and political entangle
nient upon which previous far.
mers' movements have beer
wrecked. Charlie Barrett is a
plain min, but one of absolut
integrity. That the great mass

lieve in him is very clearly de
monstrated by the fact tha
they kept him at the head of th
organization. The un ion move

At .arville, Indiana, the
oithe-r ilay a young lady was
Iitemitly whippeil of justice.
Chargni with diskobedience and
vlolation of parental authority
in going out of evenings, she
was ordered by a Poliee Magis
trate to be publicly whipped
with a rawhide, in the hands of
her mother, whicj order was
executed promptly.
By contrast with this start
ling severity at the law's hands,
on the same day JUDGE TOL
BERT, at Mangum, Oklahoma,
dismissed the case of a man
charged with murherously as
saulting and- beating. another,
with the recommendation that
the prosecuting witness read
the thirteenth chapter of First
Corinthians, which deals with
charity, the greatest of the
virtues. By that 'portion of
soripture we are instructed that
charity is long suffering and Is
kind. Charity is merciful. In
deed, charity is love.
Justice, we observe, goes by
extremes, and In extremity it
commits its gravest errors. On
the side of beating a young fe
male, though, we believe it has
erred farther than in inidulging
the limit of mercy to a man in
a murderous passion.
Had the man been flogged and
the, girl forgiven a more sub
