lining News From
jlr. Isaac Wadley cumo down from
American Fork canyon Tuesday,
where lie has been operating the
Wadley lease on the Wyoming mine.
He reports conditions looking up in
this old .historic property, and ho Is
taking out more oro nml of a bettor

months past. Ho expects to send
two moro shipments to the smelter
before being closed In with the win

into a great paying mlno; the for
mation is solid and in place, which
li not true of some other parts of the
district. Ho thinks that It will not
require much work to determine that
the Day Statu will becomo a steady

Slight variations In production havo tiHI
forced n chango In diet and one local 'H
ity has felt tho pinch of want, whllo 'iiH
anothor surfeited, but tho world ns a 'H
wholo has over boou a land ot plonty. H
Wo now havo less than ono-tontli ot H
thu tlllablo land ot tho earth's surfaco aH
under cultivation, and wo not only H
have thin surplus area to draw on but ,H
It Is snfo to estimate that In case of f jH
dlro necessity one-halt tho earth's H
population could at the present tlmo nBI
knock their living out of tho trees vH
of tho forest, gathor It from wild jjB
vines and draw It from streams. No iH
ono should becomo alarmed; tho jH
world will novcr starve. liiH
Tho consumer has always foarod ItVAl
that tho producer would not supply ' H
him nnd his fright has found ciprcs- l?iH
slou on the statuto books of our states VibVJ
and natlonB and tho farmer has been r.VBvfll
urged to produco recklessly and with- iH
out rcferenco to a market, and regard- LiH
less of tho demands ot tho consumer. 1
Back to the Soil, M

but very few of them havo moved. jH
Wo wclcomo our city cousins back to BJ

tains 1G,092,1CO,000 idlo acres ot till-
able land whero they can mako a iBBJ

forked stick, but wedo not need them ; BH
so far ns Increasing production Is con- H
cornod ; wo now havo all tho producors BB
wo can uso. Tho city man has very vBBBJ
erroneous Ideas of agricultural condl- I BJ
(Ions. Tho commonly accepted theory fH
that wo aro short on production Is all
wrong. Our annual Increaso In pro- '. BH
ductlon far oxceeds that of our In- f BH
crenso In population. BH
The World as a Farm. fl
Taking tho world as ono big farm, if

approximately 760,000,000 acres on tho HJ
