'his hoy's time belongs to me. 1 am at cohhuh
irable expense for his board and clothes and wiu-
'tcr schooling, and 1 have a right to require him
to do all ho can in return. 1 had very little spend-
money in my boyhood." This is, in substance,
lie sentiment expressed by a prosperous farmer.
Pho bov was being exploited for the sake of the
frfarm and not the farm for the sake of the boy, as
the case should have been.
"1 never gave one of my boys a cent,'' said niw
Mother farmer who was successful in this home
training.' "From childhood, under my guidance,
,licy always earned all they got and thus learned
Vknow the value of it." "My 15-year-old boy
8 'a spendthrift," said another. llIt simply is not
him to save, although 1 have been trying lor
... . r
three years to teacli him this lesson." inquiry
nlo this case brought out the fact that up to his
twelfth year this boy had -been thoroughly in
dulged in all the habits of the spendthrift.
After he has been taught to earn money, it is
'all important that the boy be instructed carefully
'1 the matter of saving. The evidence goes to
v that a bank or trust company furnishes the
it common and satisfactory means of savimj.
The relation of these institutions to the boy depos
itor is always one of helpfulness and encourage
ment. It matters not how little the lad may bc
earning, sec that he saves a portion of it. Give
T him a toy bank at first, and as soon as he has ac
cumulated a dollar or more have it placed to his
credit in a bank o deposit. Develop his interest
in the matter by talking- to him and by taking him
to the bank with you, where he may see the papers
, Try to develop in the young financier's mind
some reasonable purpose for which his money is
.. being saved, and lead him by degrees to have fond
. anticipations of its final use. Have the hoy's sav
'ings deposited in nn institution that allows inter
est on such accounts, explaining to him just how
money grows when bearing interest and how com
pound interest is interest on interest. T. D. Mac
Gregor. MRS. CORA M. STEWART KENTUCKY'S BEST
Just as Mrs. Cora Wilson Stewart is showing
'signs of ability and a willingness to worlc for the

The Charleston Mail points out in a lucid way
that when the peoplo demand the correction of in
iquities imposed by a corporation it is necessary
for them to get three of a commission of four to
adjudicate the case, whatever it may be. But
when a corporation wants to block a protest it is
only necessary for it to secure a "tio" two to
two. This may bo equal opportunity, hut the Mail
thinks not. Parkerslnirg Dispatch-Ncwa.

JVER A MILLION AND A HALF
WOMEN WORK A8 FARM HANDS
IN THE UNITED STATES.
By Peter' Rabford
Lecturer National Farmers Union.
Our government never faced bo tre
mendous a problem as that now lying
dormant at tho doors of congress and
tho legislatures, and which, when
aroused, will shako this nation from
center to circumference, and mnko
civilization hide- its faco In shamo.
That problom Ib women in tho field.
Tho last fodoral census reports
show wo now havo 1,514,000 women
working In tho field, most of thdm
south of tho Mason and Dixon lino.
Thoro wero approximately a million
negro slaves working In tho fields
when liberated by tho emancipation
proclamation. Wo havo freed our
slaves and our women have takon
their places In bondage. Wo havo
broken tho shackles oft tho negroes
and welded them upon our daughters.
The Chain-Gang of Civilization.
A million women In bondago in tho
southern fields form tho chain-gang of
civilization tho industrial tragedy
of tho ago. There Is no overseer quite
so cruel as that of unrestrained greed,
no whip that stings llko tho lash of
suborned destiny, and no auctioneer's
block quite so revolting as that of or
Tho president of tho United States
was recently lauded by tho press, and
very properly so, for suggesting medi
ation between tho engineers and rail
road managers in adjusting their
schedulo of tlmo and pay. Tho engi
neers threatened to strlko If tholr
wages wero not Increased from ap
proximately ten to eleven dollars per
day and service reduced from ton to
eight houra and a similar readjust
ment of tho overtlmo schedulo. Our
women are working In tho field, many
of them barefooted, for less than BO
contB per day, and their schedulo Is
tho rising sun and tho evening star,
and after tho day's work is over they
milk tho cows, Blop tho hogs and rock
tho baby to sleep. Ib anyono mediat
ing over their problems, and to whom
shall they threaten a strike?
Congress has listened approvingly
to thoso who toll at tho forgo and be
hind tho counter, and many of our
statesmen havo smiled at tho threats
and havo fanned tho flamo of unrest
among Industrial laborers. But wom
en are aB surely tho final victims of
Industrial warfaro as they aro tho
burden-bearers in tho war between na
tions, and thoso who arbitrate and
mediate tho differences between capi
tal and labor Bhould not forget that
when the expenses of any industry are
unnecessarily increased, society foots
tho bill by drafting a new consignment
of women from tho home to tho field.
Pinch no Crumb From Women's Crust
No financial award can bo made
without Bomeono footing tho bill, and
wo commend to those who accept tho
responsibility of tho distribution of In
dustrial Justice, tho still small voice of
tho woman in tho field as she pleads
for mercy, and wo beg that they pinch
no crumb from hor crust of bread or
put another patch upon her ragged
Wo beg that they lUton to tho
scream of horror from the eagle on
every American dollar that Is wrung
from tho brow ot tolling women and
hear the Goddess of Justico hiss at a
verdict that increases tho want of
woman to satisfy tho greed of man.
Tho women behind tho counter and
In tho factory cry aloud for sympathy
and the press thunders out In their
defenso and tho pulpit pleads for
mercy, but how about tho woman in
tho field7 Will not theso powerful
exponents of human rights turn their
talent, energies and influence to her
relief? Will tho Goddess of Liberty
enthroned at Washington hold tho cal
loused hand and sootho tho feverish
brow of her sex who sows and reaps
tho nation's harvest or will sho permit
tho inalo of tho specle3 to shovo
women weak and weary from tho
bread-lino ot Industry to tho backed
loys of poverty?
Women and Children First.
Tho census enumerators tell us that
of tho 1,514,000 women who work In tho
fields as farm hands' 409,000 aro six
teen years of ago and under. What Is
tho final destiny of a nation whoso fu
ture mothers spend their girlhood days
behind tho plow, pitching hay and
hauling manure, and what Is to become
of womanly culturo and refinement
thnt graco tho home, charm society
and enthuso man to leap to glory in
noble achievements if our daughters
are raised In tho society of tho ox und
tho companionship of the plow?
In that -strata between tho ages of
sixteen and forty-flvo aro 950,000 women-working
as farm hands and many
of them with suckling babes tug
ging at their breasts, as drenchod
In perspiration, they wield tho scytho
and guldo tho plow. What Is to bo
come of that nation where poverty
breaks tho crowns of tho queens ot
the home; despair hurls a mothor's
lovo from its throne and hunger drives
Innocent children from the Bchoolroom
to tho hoo?
The census bureau showB that 105,
000 of theso women aro forty-flvo
years of ago and over. Thero is no
m6ro pitiful sight in civilization than
the8evsalntly mothers of Israel stooped
with ago, drudging in tho field from
sun until sun and at night drenching
their dingy pillows with tho tears of
dospair as their aching hearts tnko
it all to God in prayer. Civilization
strikes them a blow whoh It should
give them a cr6wn, and their only
friend is ho who broko bread with .
beggars and Bald: "Como unto mo all
yp that aro weary and heavy laden and
I will give" yoif rost."
Oh, America! Tho land of the free
and the homo of tho brave, thd
world's custodian of chivalry, the
champion ot human rights and tho de
fender1 ofvthi oppressed shall wo pery
wit our matdaa fair to be torn froa'

lsh and pfolo'cT, to "bo hurled TromlBb
homo to tho harvest field, and our
mothers dear to bo driven from tho old
arm chair to tho cotton patch?
In rescuing our citizens from tho
forcea of civilization, can wo not apply
to our fair Dixieland the rulo of tho
sea "women and children first?"
Thero must bo a readjustment of
tho wngo scale of Industry so that tho
women can bo taken from tho field or
given a roasonablo wage for hor serv
ices. Perhaps tho Issue has novor been
fairly raised, but tho Farmers' Union,
with a membership of ten million, puts
its organized forces squarely behind
tho issue and wo now enter upon tho
docket of civilization tho caso of "Tho
Woman in tho Field" and demand an
John Tj she proper?

In a very weak, nervous, run-down con

ent medicines without benefit and finally
one day read about Vinoi, and decided
to try ft In a very short time I could

two bottles I have a Good appetite and
my health and strength was restored.
"I think Vinol is a grand medicine
and every weak, nervous, run-down wo
man should take it. "-Mrs. Geo. FlND

Vinol creates strength because it con
tains all tho medicinal tissue-building
elements of cod liver oil actually taken
from fresh, healthy cods' livers. To this
is added peptonato of iron, a most es
sential element for the blood, nil dis
solved in a delicious tonic native wine.
Vinol creates an appetite, aids diges

natural manner it builds up the run

weakness with Btrength. If Vinol fails
to create strength after sickness we will
return your money.
