By Peter Radford.
Lecturer National Farmers' Union.
A brontl cnnipalgn of publicity on
tho subject of rural Ufa Is noadod In
tills stuto today to bring tho problems
of tho fnrniers to tho forefront. Tho
city problems nro blnzoucil upon the
front pages of tho metropolitan dnll
las and echoed In the country press,
but the trotibleH of tho formers nro
seldom told, oxcopt by thoss who
seek to profit by tho story, nnd tho
Rllttur of the inoltni;o ofttlmcs ob
scures tho substnnco. A searching In
vaallgntloii Into the needs of tho
farmerB will rovenl tnntiy Inherent do
fects In our economic system that can
bo nnally remedied whon properly un
dcrstood nnd lllumlnnted by tho pow
or of tho press.
Tho rural press, tho pulpit nnd tho
school nr n trinity of powerful In
fluenccs that tho farmer must utlllzo
to thnlr fullest capacity beforo ho enn
occupy n cninmnntlliiK position In public
Affairs. Thoso Rlcnntlc nuenctcs nro
organized In every rural community
nnd only nwnlt thn piitrouiiKu nnd co
oporntlon of tho fnrmurs to fully do

They nro local forces workliiK for
tho best Intorosts of their roxportlvc
communities, Their work Is to hulld
nnd their object Is to serve. They
prosper only through tho development
nnd prosperity of I ho community.
Kvery farmer In this statu should
nubscrlho for tho local paper, ns woll
as farm periodicals nnd such other
publications ns ho mny find prontnblo,
hut he should, by all menus, subsorlbo
for his locnl paper, nnd no homo
should bo without It. Thn locnl paper
Is part at tho community life nnd tho
editor understands tho fnrmur s prob
loins. It Is tho locnl press that will
study tho locnl problems nnd through
Its columns deal with subjects of most
vllnl Importation to locnl llfo of tho
A Noble Task.
In too innuy Instnuces tho country
papers inlmln tho ulty press by glv
Inn prominence to scandals, accidents
nnd political agitation. Thn new ru
rnl civilization has placed upon tho
rural press renewed respmmlhllltlnH,
nnd anlnrgud posxlhllltles for useful
nes. It cannot perform Its mission
to uiirloulturtt by recording tho frail
tlus, tho mlnhnpn nnd Inordinate am
liltlons of liumsnlty, or by tilling Its
columns with the echoes of thu stmg
gits of busy streets, or by enchanting
stories of city life which lure our
children from thn farm.
It has u higher and nnblor tusk.
Ton often tho pages of tho city dallies
bristle with the strugglo of ambitious
men In their wild lust for power, nnd
tunny times tho IIiiiiiom of personal
conflict mnr tho tender buds of now
rlvlllatloii nnd llliimlunto tho path
way to destruction. Thu rural pross
Is thn governing imwor of public senti
ment nnd must hold steadfast to
principle nnd ksop the ship of stnlo
In the rundslHHd of pragmas. Tho
rural press van Iwst serve the Inter
M of the termer by applying Its
energies to tho solution or problems
nffeolliig tl local community. It
must stem thn mighty llfo current

The Farm Woman Noeds Rcll

Much has boon said nnd more writ

the woman who works In tho field
I wntit to say a few words In hor bo-
half. I regret a necessity that com
pels woman to work for a livelihood,
nnd I favor not only shortening hor
hours, but freeing hnr from manual
labor entirely. I crave for society
Hint high standard of excellence where
tho homo Is woman's throno and her
Ufa Is devoted to molding the char
actcr nnd elovntlng tho thought of
tho rising generntlon. Hut so long as
want, greed nud mlsfortuno prevail In
this world, women, through choice or
necessity, will work, and perhaps
they will work at onn task or anothor
ns ninny hours per day as they please
Wo may pity tho weak and admire

Thn fnrm women work from sun

they get hrakfnst nnd milk ths cows

A Painful Duty
One of the most vivid ac
counts ot an episode of wnr
comes from the Loknl AnzeiKcr
of August 24. It is a letter from
Pnul Hoecker, a Berlin nlay
wright, now serving as Captain
of the reserve. He describes a
mission on which he was dis
patched to search for arms in
Belgian villages in which shots
had been fired by civilians on
German troops. His instuc-
tions were to summon the vil
lagers to deliver up their arms
and those in whose possession
arms were found after they do
clared that they had none were
to be instantly shot.
Describing a visit to Jung
busch, ho says that at one house
were found an old man, a wo
man and a girl of 13. He adds:
"Then a terrible thing han
pened. A sergeant and a pri
vate dragged a young fellow out
of tho house. They had found
him hiding among the straw in
the loft. He had in his hand a
Belgian rifle loaded with five
cartridges, from the opening
of the roof ho may have aimed
at many an honest German.
The youth had to put his hands
up. Stammering and deadly
pale, hn stood.
"Who is this youth?" I asked
the old man. As if struck by
lightning, all three fell on their
knees, wailing. The woman
groaned, 'He is my son. For
God's sake, you aro not going to
kill him7' And the little girl
sobbed as if her heart would
break. Tho prisoner tried to
escape, hut was put up against
tho wall by the men.
"I had to picture to myself by
force tho German patrols riding
through the night with the bul
lets of treacherous snipers
whistling round their helmets.
and think of the tall figures and
bright eyes of our good German
fellows, in order to master my
nerves in face of this sorrow
and fulfill my orders.
"'Ho has to be shot. Three
men! Thrco men! Readyl'
"Tho three men commission
ed, who were fathers of families,
two from Berlin and ono u form
er, did not turn a hair. This
is just business. Wo had got a
ruflian who merited no compas
sion. Tho volley rang out.
Tho trembling body collapsed to
he ground and did not move
again. Three holes were visible
n the bluo blouse. Tho boy's
eyes were closed. His faco had
not changed its expression.
Death by our rillo is painless.
"Wo ought to burn tho old
man's house over his head,"
said ono of my men.
