U. S. Mission to Reform World.
Gorham, N. H., Aug 5.-The new
.mission of America will be to reform'
the world and lead men away from
warfare. President Harding had this
startling message to give to disabled
service men whom he visited at a
hospital here tonight.
I want this country to be a god
-fearing and righteous country. I want
an' America that will reform the
world and teach men that it is not
good to make warfare. I believe this

Leaving his vacation home at Pros
pect Mountain early this morning the
president covered close to two hun
-dred miles before he returned after
dark. The party made a rapid trip
north to Dixville Notch, close to the
Canadian border where the senato
rial foursome played golf. After lun
cheon the party started homeward.
All these towns en route were wait

compensation bill. I want to tell
these men who are the wards of the

ithat we all believe that we owed our
j?rst consideration to the men im

Free Seeds and Petty Politics.
The agricultural appropriation bill
.carries an item of $240,000 for the
distribution of small packages of gar
den and flower seed to the voters of
the nation. For many years the Sec
retaries of Agriculture have made an
effort to eliminate this item and if
possible either save that amount of
money for the people or use it in
.connection with more serious and val
uable work of the department. Con
gress, however, has always refused
the request of the Secretary and
again in 1921 when the nation is j
straining every resource to raise mon
ey with which to pay legitimate debts
Congressmen insisted on having the
usual seed graft.
Any member of Congress who still
believes that the receipt of a pack
age of miscellaneous seed, none of
which are of more than ordinary val
ue, wilt make a voter, whether city
or rural, believe that he has received
a special favor, is hardly smart
enough to represent his constituents.
The voters in his district 'have been
wise to the graft for many years and
the receipt of a few seeds has no
influence with him in the least de
.gree. As the distribution of free seed
has no other object than to fool the
voter into believing that his Con
gressman has remembered him per-J
sonally and is working his head off
for him, and as the veter is not fooled
in the least, then why. continue the
free seed practice? Distribution of
'free seed, as it is now practiced, is
an insult to the intelligence of the
.voters.-Farm & Ranch.

Will . Discuss Disarmament.
Yielding to the demands of the
people President Harding has at last
invited the powers to send represent
atives to Washington for the purpose
of discussing the question of disarm
ament, or at least a stay in the prep
aration of new building program.
Not only have citizens of all class
es in the United States made known
their desire for a reduction of taxes
and the National debt through cut
ting down the expenses of war prep
aration, but the peoples of Europe,
much harder pressed for the neces
sities of life and burdened with even
greater taxes with less ability to pay,
are also anxious for some agreement
which will eventually result in re
If the full wishes of the people of
the world are complied with an agree
ment will be reached which will cut
the cost of military preparations
more than 75 per cent. To expect
this, however, is to invite disappoint
ment. Great Britain officially, contin
ues to harbor the idea that a large
navy is necessary to keep the empire
intact. Leaders at Washington have
made up their minds that the United
States should, not be satisfied with
any navy of less power than that
owned by Great Britain. Japan feels
that if the United States continues
to'build battleships, she will of ne
cessity have to follow suit. If these
leaders go into the conference with
those ideas uppermost in their minds,
not much in the way of reduced arm
ament will be accomplished. We may
at least hope that the discussion will
be open and free from jealousies and
that the representatives of the powers
will go into the matter with the in
tention of doing their part in re
lieving the world of the consequences
of this mad race for military and
naval supremacy.-Farm and Ranch.
Two Kinds of Farmers.
In a recent communication to Farm
and Ranch it was stated that there
were two kinds of farmers, one who
continually directed his efforts to
wards getting a maximum acreage
production by building up the fer
tility of his soil, and the other who
mined his soil, taking from it all he
can get without putting anything
The miner farmer is found in every
neighborhood. He can be spotted by
the general run down condition of his
farm; his shiftless appearance; and
his pessimistic attitude on' every
question. As a general rule he does
not fread a farm paper or even a
newspaper. He is always poor and
given much to cussing the Govern
ment. He is a one cropper by nature;
talks about working sixteen hours a
day twelve months in the year when
as a matter of fact he spends more
time going to town than he does in
his field. He is a failure on the farm
and the only place he can make a re
spectable living is on the jo|) in town
where the boss has the brams and a
determination to make him speed up.
The other kind of a farmer never
cultivates a greater acreage than he
can take care of himself or hire tak
en care of without at least having an
even chance to make a profit. His
plan is to make his land more produc
tive each year. He plants a variety
of crops and never two that require
his attention at one time. He has one
good dairy cow or more and never
goes to town to buy butter. He has
a flock of chickens and takes care of
them. He has eggs and poultry to eat
and some to sell. He has a good gar
den and orchard. He also has a smoke
house and kills much of his own meat.
He grows feedstuffs and has enough
hogs and cattle to eat them. This kind
of a farmer studies his soil needs and
if necessary will turn undef sweet
clover, cowpeas or other green crops.
He is not adverse to listening to other
people's opinions; consults his county
agent and studies results of the work
of experiment farms. By growing
much of his own living he is able to
sell his surplus at the top of the mar
Fortunately the latter class of far
mers are becoming more numerous
in the Southwest.-Farm and Ranch.

CAUSES FOR RUNTY ANIMALS
Replies to Questionnaire Show In.

(Prepared by the United States D?part

More than SOO replies have been re
ceived from practical stock breeders
and owners In response to a question
naire sent out by the United States
Department of Agriculture In an effort
to determine the cause and possible
means of preventing runts in ; live
stock. The large number of replies,
department specialists say, Indicates
the Interest which stock breeders feel
in this subject. Some of the ques
tions asked In the questionnaire are:
"From your experience, in what
classes of live stock do the most runts
appear (cattle, hogs, sheep, etc.)?"
"In what stage of an animal's devel
opment does runtiness appear chiefly?"
"In your experience what are the most

practical methods of preventing
runts?" "Does lt pay to raise runts to
market size?" "To what extent would
your financial returns from live stock
be increased If you had no runts?"
The replies thus far received show
that Inferior breeding and poor feed-.
lng are jointly responsible for nearly
two-thirds of the runts among live
stock, and indicate that at least 7 per
cent of farm live stock Is commonly

GET FIGURES ON PUREBREDS
Bureau Of Census Completing-Tabula
tion for States Not Yet Shown
On account of the great Interest
which the United States Department
of Agriculture finds has been shown
ID census figures of purebred live stock
in ten representative farm states, the
bureau of the census is proceeding
with plans to comp.'ate the tabulation
for the remaining states. This work
is receiving the hearty co-operation of
the United States Department of Agri
culture. Live stock specialists of the
department regard such figures as
very valuable as factors In production
problems, and as indicating develop
ments In the improvement of domestic
animals in this country.
It Is understood that the final census
figures pertaining to purebred live
stock on farms will be available at the
same time the general live stock fig
ures are furnished. It Is thought that
this will be some time during the com
ing summer. Breeders and breeders'
associations Interested In this work
have already Indicated their apprecia
tion of the value*of the figures thus far
available. It is the first time In the
history of any country that accurate
figures on the total number of purebred
animals on farms bave been compiled.
CARE AND FEEDING OF STOCK
Vermont Live Stock Owner Says' Cause
of Runts ls Due to Neglect Dur
ing First Year.
In contributing his experiences on
the cause of runty live stock in a re
cent inquiry conducted by the United
States Department of Agriculture, a
Vermont farmer urges greater care In
the early life of domestic animals.
"When people can be educated to the
proper care and feeding of stock,'* he
declares, "the runt will be practically
wiped out. The reason, perhaps, why
there are not so many runts In pure- j
bred herds as in others is because the j
man who cares what kind of stock he j
keeps cares enough to care for them
better." He concludes that one of the
principal factors in the cause of runty j
live stock ls the man who has the care |
of them the first year.
