God Give Us Men.
God give us men. The time demands
Strong minds, great hearts, true faithl
and willing hands;
Men whom the lust of office does not
Men whom the spoils of office cannot
Men who possess opinions and a will;
Men who have honor, men who will
Men who can stand before a dema
And damn the treacherous flatteries
Tall men, sun-crowned, who live above
In public duty and in private think
For while the rabble with their thum
Their large professions and little deeds
Mingle in selfish strife; lo! Freedom
Wrong rules the land, and waiting jus
tice sleeps !
Unity in Purpose.
A united people can accomplish
great things. The country that is
united in ideals and sentiment has
nothing to fear in econ?mico, so
ciology and citizenship. It is that
unanimity of pnrpose that assures
the success of a united people.
As a nation we are not making use
of our opportunities for co-operation
as we should. We have not fully
realized the close connection be
tween the manufacturer and the
farmer; the transportation compa
nies and the shippers; the profes
sional man and the business man;
the merchant and the farmer; the
capital and labor. We have not
made nse of the fact that eveiy citi
zen engaged in serving society in a
legitimate way is a factor for co
operation, and his interest must
not be ignored in any system for
The richest, most prosperous and
most independent countries m the
world are where people produce an
abundance of food and clothing and
have developed markets so that the
surplus is disposed of economically.
This cannot be done by antagonism,
strife and bitterness engendered by
selfishness existing among classes
and occupations. It must be done
by co-operation and good will to
all, and with special emphasis to
economy and efficiency. If this re
quires monopoly it must be a mo
nopoly for the benefit of the people.
Every farmer should be proud
that he is a farmer; believe it is the
best occupation among men; that in
producing the people's food he is
rendering society a great service as
well as himself and his family. But
he should recognize the importance
of his fellowmen in other legitimate
occupations. Markets must be bad;
the things that we cannot produce
mtfst be bought; professional servie
es must be had; manufacturing,
transportation, merchandizing, bank
ing, etc., are necessary; facilities
for education, recreation and hu
man efficiency must be in our reach.
To get the best results for our
selves, our state and our nation we
should strive each to help the other
and thus be helped by co-operation
that builds up society and makes
the earth a better place to live in.
-Farm & Ranch.
Poultry on The Farm.
No other form of intensive agri
culture is better suited to help feed
our rapidly increasing population
\ vhan poultry raising. A very small
area devoted to poultry raising will
produce enough to supply a family.
Could the entire farm produce yield
as muebjaccording to the area as that
which is tiseu to raise poultry there
would be larger crops and better
profits for thwse who till the soil.
A small flock of fowls even under
conditions of low prices and little
attention given to the fowls may
afford considerable revenue.
The fowls on the average farm
usually have few rsstrictions. They
jnust let the crops and the stored
grain alone, but with this exception
they must have the courtesy of the
farm; roost where they choose and
eat what they can find.
With better care and attention
the farm fowls could produce more
wealth and be a better source of
profit on the farm. It would only
be necessary to get good foundation
stock and use,care in selection and
feeding, and see to it that the birds
are properly housed and fed. A
dozen hens from a strain of heavy i
layer? might be more profitable than
two dozen of the type often found
in the farmyard.
This is the season for increasing
the flock. There will be a demand
or fresh eggs and poultry on the
ble of the farm manager. It now
ms likely that the market will
ke care of more than has been
roduced in the past. A few dollars
r week from the hens will go a ?
ng way toward meeting the ex
nse of necessities.-Farm & Fae

Mr. James Qua ri es died here at
his home about 11:30 o'clock last
F?day evening after a lingering
illness. He was in his 21st year and
was a young man of many noble
traits of character. He was very pa
tient during all his illness and was
a Christian man. At.the time of his
death the conditions in the home
were very patbetio, all of the mem
bers of the family being critically
ill, and friends and neighbors were
very kind and thoughtful to them
in their distress. The body was car
