Town and Country.
Some seem to think the town is on
one end of the teeter-board and the
country on the other; so that one can't
go up unless the other goes down. A
man who thinks this is badly fooled.
They are both on the sauio end.
Neither one goes up or down but the
other goes with it. The town Is
bound to have the country or do no
business, and the country is bound to
have the town or have no market.
Every farmer has small surpluses,
wool, fowls, eggs, butter, vegetables,
hay, corn. If he has a prosperous
town, he has ready sale at good
prices, while if the town js dead poor
he has no market at all. Yet some
men do all they can to pull
their town down, and then curse
it because they can't sell their pro
duce there. Every family added to
the town improves the farmer's
market, especially if the new man
succeeds in business ro he can buy
what he wants. If the farmer fails
to sell all he bring to town, it's not
because the people don't want it
but because they have not got the
money. So the only way on earth
to improve the market is to improve
the town and improve the business
of the town so there will be more
people and more of them able to buy
what they want.
There are lots of thieves and liars
and swindlers in town, but it is the
same way in the country. There are
church members in town that lie,
and swear, and dance, and play
cards, and get drunk; but it is not
much better in the country, just not
so many to the acre. Most of the
grown people in the town were rais
ed in the country. Weareall human;
8omeofusMre as meau as Old Nick;
none of us good to brag of, and it is all
foolishness for the pot to call the ket
tle black and raise a racket about it.
So let us all pull together.

want to add that it is good horse sense
in solid chunks, and every man in
whose mind there exists a single
epark of the silly prejudice between
town and country should paste it in
his hat and read it once every day
until he gets thoroughly ashamed of
himself, aod honestly resolves to
make himself more useful every day
