The Pasture on the Other Side
of the Fence.
Two foolish horses.
I ?n< %? saw a picture of two horses
standing/ on the opposite side of a
fence that separated two quite sim
ilar pastures- thinking" it better
than his own pasture.
There is a great deal of unrest to
day in our agriculture, more than
feny other profession, in fact does our
agriculture conceive that it getting
the worst end of these untoward
postwar conditions. This agricultural
unrest in the north is as great as it
is in the south for the high freight
rates have acted especially heavily
upon northern agriculture, and
"moreover northern agriculture has
been largely selling its products to
the South and thereby living on the
South and this trade has been wholly
lost to them,
I! "* A General Unrest.
The .fact, however, is that untest
today extends through all conditions
of society, not only in this country
hut elsewhere. The manner every
where thinks that the merchant is in j
better shape and the merchant thinks j
than he is and the m?rchant thinks
that the manufacturer's condition is i
the better; labor thinks that capital |
is better off and capital is pretty
sure that labor is getting the better
end of things. The condition, how
ever of capital and labor illustrates
quite well the whole situation. The
"bonds and stocks of capital are sell
ing at lowest levels and losses in all
v. these things have been simply infinite
On the other hand there are more
than five millions of idle laborers
today--men with families to support
and men who have been without jobs
possibly for months and months.
Many of these men, indeed, are get
ting their food largely in bread
lines. The fact is that there is no
safe place and no safe profession to
day in the land which carries a guar
antee against loss. As to southern
agriculture, its position and its future
is a better one than is northern ag_
\ riculture for the southern farmer
can live at home while the northern
farmer cannot do so and northern
farmer's land costs from five to
ten times more dollars per acre than
does the land of the southern far

just returned from a trip to northern

possibly more so than is the South

of safety and recovery here than
exists there. Migration, for example
on the part of anyone of any pro

Stick to Your Job.
The moral of all this is that if
you have got a job ?hen stick to it
and work out your salvation as best
you can just where you are. If you
are in some present work then you
have a niche and a place and there
may not be a niche and a place for
you somewhere else. You know the
"habitat and enviroment in which you
live. You do not know the habitat

have your circle of friends about you,
You have no friends, in yonder place.
Gets Us Nowhere.
This general unrest in peoples'
minds really gets us nowhere. It is
all simply like the wear and tear of
a grindstone on our souls. The truth
is too, that life was not intended to
be an easy thing-life was intended
to be a struggle. The unrest of the
Russian people got them nowhere
nor did the recent unrest and up
risings of Italy do them, too, any
thing but harm. Social unrest in the
world is largely giving away to so^
berer thought and it is time for our
financial unrest and economic unrest
too follow suit. And whether we be
lieve it or not and whether we ac
cept it or not the fact is that the very
hest thing for all of us to do today
is to graze in our own pastures and
to give the best genius and the best
devotion that is in us to the work at

Why Clothes Wear Out.
Textile Chemist in London Daily
Most people consider the "wearing
out" of clothes as something which is
unavoidable, inconvenient, but not
worthy_of attention. Yet the why and
wherefore of this "wearing out" are
full of interest.
All clothes wear out through expo
sure to sunlight, air, rain, mechanical
strain and bacterial action. Of these
sunlight is by far the most harmful.
Hence clothes not in use should be
stored in the dark.
But light is selective in the ac
tion. A dark fabric is less affected
than one which is highly colored. So
that a Briton's love for drab-colored
clothing cannot entirely be condemn
Moreover, red and yellow light are
less destructive' than the blue, violet
and ultraviolet light.
Not all fabrics are affected alike,
for while wool and silk rapidly de
teriorate in strong sunlight, cotton
and linen are much more resistant.
In spite of this, however, it would
not be economical to use all cotton
clothing, since colors fade more rap
idly on cotton than wool. When .1
! dyed woolen fabric is exposed ^to
j sunlight, the fabric is attacked first,
and the dye is thereby partly pro
tected. In the cotton fabric the dye
protects the cotton.
Acourse dress material is more
resistant than a fin?"*one to sunlight.
Clothes are not much affected by
pure rain and air. In manufacturing
towns, however, the atmosphere is
often slightly acid, and it is then
practically destructive to- wool.
Cotton and woolen fibres are very
elastic and strong. They can with
stand a' great deal of rubbing. So
that generally is it not until clothes
have suffered from exposure to sun
light that fail to resist the strains
caused by ordinary wear.
It pays most people to notice how
their clothes wear. But dyers are
more concerned, since the fastness
of the dyes used must be appropri
ate to the life of the fabric.

x THE '
VU.S. NOBBY TREAD
Where the going is specially heavy
with snow, mud or sand, in hilly
country where maximum traction on
the read is a factor, no other tire tread
yet devised is quite so effective, or so
wholly approved by motoring opin
ion, as the U. S. Nobby Tread.
Its very simplicity-three rows of
diagonal knobs, gripping the road
is the result of all the years of U. S.
Rubber experience with every type
of road the world over.
STOP and talk to the next man
you see with U. S. Tires on
his car. Ask him why.
Most likely you'll hear an inter
esting story about his tire experi
ments-before the answer was
found. Money wasted. ? Promises
unkept. Trouble on the road-hu
morous to every one except the
man who went through it.
Finally U. S. Tires. And U. S.
Tires ever since.
Perhaps it's the experience of U. S.
Tire buyers that makes them more em
phatic in their preference than ever this
When these men have tried most
everything by the "way of "staggering
bargains", "hurrah discounts", "discon
'tinued lines at less" and so forth they
know what not to get
They want a fresh, live tire. With a
. good reputation. That's everything it says
it is. With the people behind it who
back it up.
* _ * *
There are 92 U. S. Factory Branches.
Your local U. S. Dealer is drawing
upon them continually to keep his stocks
sized up, complete-to give you service.
Whenever he gets one or a hundred
tires from a LT. S. Factory Branch, they
are newly made this season's tires.
Sold to you at a nef price. Full values.
Square-dealing. A reputable maker. A
reputable dealer. The whole transaction
as befits the leadership of the oldest and
largest rubber organization in the world.
