Dry Farming In
THKJ exceedingly cry year throughout the west has furnished a rigia test of
the dry farming system. It is safe to say that the failures have been due
to ignorance ana to neglect to apply the well established principles of the
art. In. many parts of the west the dry farming experts and progressive farmers
actually welcome the extraordinarily dry season. They say that the value of
land will increase markedly because of the drouth. Prof. Merrill, in charge of
dry farming in Utah, writes, "We have met with unprecedented success during the
driest season in 36 years. Wherever proper methods have been employed results
have been satisfactory. The drouth has 'taught the lesson that results are sure
even during the driest seasons where proper methods are employed. Land will in
crease in value throughout the west as a result of this discovery."
Dr. Cook, dry farming expert for the state of Wyoming, writes, "With all
the dry weather my crops are coming out good, much to the surprise of a great
many people." J. H. Hall, agricultural commissioner from Montana, after an ex
haustive study and investigation of conditions in the state, writes, "In some lo
calities there may be short crops because of the failure of farmers to follow closely
the prescribed dry farming methods, but the acreage of wheat on dry farms is the
largest in the state's history, and the yield will be quite' satisfactory." A dry
fanner in Montana writes. "We who have followed the Campbell system of dry
fanning are going to make a good crop and the weather man cannot beat us out
now if he does not give us another drop of rain." Prof. Shaw, agriculturist for
the Great Northern, states, "The abnormal dry weather has not in the slightest de
gree lessened my faith in the ultimate success of dry farming in Montana. In fact,
it has made me more firmly convinced than ever that there is not the slightest
doubt about the raising of good crops in Montana, if dry farming methods are
followed, even in the driest years. I know of no instance where scientific methods
of farming have been followed that there is not every indication of obtaining a
paving crop. A successful dry farmer in Utah reports, "Two hundred thousand
acres of grain running 20 to 50 bushels to the acre will be raised by dry farmers
in Juab county this year. We have employed scientific methods and we are suc
cessful, though the year is the driest known in this generation."
It seems to be a question of intelligence combined with persistence. The care
less methods of former days will not do, and this is a case where every lick of
work counts directly in the annual yield.
Vlhose Fort Bliss troopers will leave home in style even if they do have to hoof

THE charter amendments proposed by the city council are all desirable and
should be urged through the legislature at the special session. The most
important change of all is to abolish the farcical system of school board
"elections" and to place the power of appointing public school trustees in the
Stands of the mayor.
Under our system of government no mayor would dare abuse this power and
it is the only way that we can secure responsible and efficient school government.
Under the present system the trustees are not elected, but are appointed by
n irresponsible political boss. The trustees are responsible to nobody and the
cchool board is disjointed, disconnected, and out of touch either with the people on
the one side or with the city government on the other. The people pay the taxes
to sustain the schools and they have nothing whatever to say about how the
money is disbursed, for the people do not and cannot elect a school board under the
The only way to remedy the condition which has caused more political scandal
ana more election corruption than -any other branch of our local government is to

The Star Spangled Banner
FOR a. great many years The Herald has been urging that the "Star Spangled
Banner" be played at the end of each public concert given in the parks. At
last, through the act of aHerman Blumenthal, this has been ordered done,
and no concert by the municipal band henceforth will close without the playing
cf the national anthem.
As a necessary part of the patriotic form, in order to be consistent, the band
should be instructed to omit the "Star Spangled Banner" from any medley of
national airs it may desire to pfay. The playing of the "Star Spangled Banner" in
a medley is prohibited in the army, navy, and marine corps, for the double reason
that it is confusing to the hearers, not knowing just how to demonstrate their
recognition and respect, and that mixing up the national anthem in such a way
with ordinary popular songs does not set it apart sufficiently as an expression of
And right here it is well once moreVto call attention to the fact that the "Star
Spangled Banner" is the one and only American national anthem. It is not neces
sary to rise, uncover, or In any other way show special recognition when "My
Country, Tis of Thee," "Hail Columbia," orany other patriotic song is played
by the bands or sung. The playing of the "Star Spangled Banner," however (ex
tent in a medley), on any and all occasions should be marked by the people rising
to their feet and the men and boys removing their hats. It is a fine bit of cere
mony that should never be neglected.
But don't get the songs mixed. The "Star Spangled Banner" is the only one
deserving such special recognition.

A NIGHTLY HOUSE The Herald's
By Thit Jensen Daily Short Story
The storm was howling furiously out
side. In his study father Jacobus was
putting the finishing touches to his ser
mon. He was very tired, not so much
of bod as of soul, for of late serious
doubts had arisen within him and he
could not make the sermon convincing,
because he felt that his own faith was
not strong enough. Was there really a
life after death? What did he know?
How could he tell?
Father Jacobus was not ycung when
he entered the holj- orders. He had
been the owner of a large estate and
life had looked gay and alluring to liim
from the day when Dorothy, the play
mate of his childhood, had promised to
become his wife.
But now 40 years had passed since
a sudden fever had taken away Dorothy
and with one blow robbed him of the
joy of living.
"She was dead now and he was father
During the first years after her death
he had lived on uhe verge of insanity
and only one idea had prevented him
from sending a bullet through his brain,
the thought that perhaps there was no
life after death and that he would then
cut himself off fronT all dreams and
memories of Dorothy. Then he gave the
estate to his (brother and became a poor
priest, always ready to sacrifice him
self for others, but he did not find the
rest and peace he ought, he was still
uncertain about a life after death.
Tlirough the fury of the storm came
the sound of knocking on father Jaco
bus's door, and before he liad time to
wonder who could come to see him on a
night like this, the door softly opened
and an elderly lady in widow's weeds
enijered. She looked very aristocratic, her
long veil partly hiding her snowy hair;
her mouth wore an expression of sad
ness, the nose was narrow and white,
and the ees looked tired under the

take a seat and tell him what he might

The young nobleman laughed boister
ously, while the footman trieu Jto con

"How kind of 3011," exclaimed the

I say that I do not really care for the
last "rites 'et. But you "look cold and
uncomfortable, father" so I suggest we
empty a bottle of good wine together."
Father Jacobus, who with his 65 years
reall3 did feel chilled through, accepted
and sat down near the fireplace in a
luxurious chair. After emptying a glass
of old Malaga, he asked the count if he
did not want to confess.
Confess! Xo, why should he confess?
He never did anything but what every
body knew, and had never regretted any
act of his. He did not need the consola
tion of the church, but had his own way
"Wein, Weib und Gesang,' he recited,
as he filled his glass. In spite of his
evident intoxication, father Jacobus re
mained and made the 3oung count con
tinue his involuntary confession.
No the count was in no need of con
solation. He was ahva3Ts ha-npy; his
heart and soul were wild and free as a
gypsy's. He cared nothing for duty, or
wright or wrong, or other tedious non
sense. He just wanted to love the most
beautiful, drink the hottest wine and
listen to the wildest music. That was
his life, and he had no other wishes, but,
perhaps, more women, more wine and
"Xow, my 3oung friend," said -the old
priest, when he stored at last, "1 do not

The count laughed.

and I do know that some da 3ou will
die and the life after death will not be
filled with wine, women and song. I
will give you "absolution tonight it you
wall promise me to' try to live a more
useful life from today."
Father Jacobus rested his band on a
little table filled with bricabrac and
photographs. As he granted the absolu
tion and made the sign of the cross he
upset a photograph and looked at it me
chanically as he picked it up.
"Who is this?" he asked, for the -dioto

Impending Social Revolution
Results From English Conditions
VIII. THE BRITISH
LONDON, Eng., July 13. "We
mean, at any rate, before we
are done to eliminate hunger
from British civilization." Thus spoke
DaviJ Lloyd-George, the Welsh chan
cellor of the .exchequer of the United
Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland,
in his famous speech delivered at Lime
house not quite a year ago. That
speech marked the beginning of a new
epoch in British politics, and it pre
saged a powerful determination to
reform to the point of revolution the
existing social order in Great Britain.
Protests against the existing order
have been heard for years, but they
eame as single voices from out the
midst of the multitude and were passed
as unconsidered trifles. The protest
was given form and force by the budg
et introduced in the house of commons
by Mr. Lloyd-George which undertook
to revise the revenue laws of the na
tion to include a tax on land and upon
unearned increment In land. For a
time the budget was discussed solely
with reference to its expediency. And
then the "Welsh chancellor In the Lime
house speech gave voice to this greatr
swelling protest in his official capacity
as the representative of the govern
ment and as chief guardian of the
finances of the kingdom. The faint
rumble of discontent instantly swelled
into the thunder of battle against the
Americans Understand Condition.
Americans will understand and sym
pathize with that part of this radical
protest which is directed toward an
equalization of th burden of taxes
among all the people, placing the great
est burden upon the broadest shoul
ders. Perhaps they -will not be so
quick to give their sympathetic ap
proval to the demand, accompanying
the protest, for those radical and even
socialistic reforms looking to the es
tablishment of what Lloyd-George has
embraced in the defining phrase "the
rights of the average man." These
"rights" include the right of every man
to work; to obtain a fair and living
wage for his labor; to share, directly or
indirectly, in the produce of the land;
to compel non-productive consumers to
serve the state and the people in pro
portion to their ability; to expect from
portion .to their ability; to expect from
the state a pension in old age; and to
stand as the equal In political power
of every other man.
In an individualistic community such
as the United States, most people hold
to the theory that it is not the business
of the state to guarantee employment
for its laborers, nor to pension them
when old age has robbed them of the
power to work. America is rich, its
people are prosperous and it occupies
a position of geographicaland political
isolation which prevents its people from
knowing what other nations are doing:
But the English people know what it
is to be hungry and to stay hungry,
and they have t but to look across the
narrow strip of salt water dividing
them from the mainland of Europe to
see in actual Operation the reforms
which English radicals are demanding.
In Germany the state concedes no
rights to its people as rights, jbut it
has given to its working classes a
great many extremely socialistic re
mits of mercy vouchsafed
Under this provision labor exchanges
were opened In all parts of the king
dom "to assist in the linding of em
ployment to save the man who was
out of work perchance his wife and
.his family from starvation until he
gets employment." More than a mil
lion dollars was voted for road im
provement, to serve the double pur
pose Of bettering the highways and
of giving employment to labor. An
other million was devoted for the de
velopment of useful schemes in agri
culture, in the extension of light rail
ways, afforestration, and the like. An
other million was appropriated for
making scientific experiments in agri
culture with the view to rendering
available land now lying idle. All this
was in addition to the provisions al
ready made for old age pensions.
Politicians Make Promises.
These extraordinary proposals of the
Liberal party were denounced by the
Conservative opposition as being the
vanguard of an attack upon the in
stitution of private property and as
an effort ,to convert the state into a
socialistic commune. Oddly enough,
from the American point of view, the
Conservatives directed the force of
their opposition not toward the pro
visions for 'insurance against unem
ployment and did age pensions, but
upon the principle of land taxation.
Indeed, the Conservatives themselves
had promised old age pensions to the
people and, as a political expedient,
had voted to extend the pensions to a
class not provided for by the radical
budget. The opposition also had prom
ised the people to deal with the prob
lem of unemployment. They did not
regard these things as being danger
ously socialistic- But the proposition
to tax land, which Americans accept as
a matter of course, was to the British
Tories the very essence of revolution
Americans as partners in the inher
itance of liberties wrested from the
British crown by outraged citizens, are
proud of that long line of victories for
freedom begun -when the barons wrest
ed the great oharter from the un
willing hands of king John, and con
tinued by Simon de Montford and
all his successors in the militant move
ments for the extension of popular
government. But it must be remmem
bered that in England all of these re
forms were instituted on behalf of the
land owning classes. In the marclxaf
the centuries the population of Eng
land has been growing constantly,
while the land owning class has been
diminishing constantly in number.
The British system of land tenures
has the effect of increasing the size
of individual estates, and it effectually
prevents the operation of the natural
law which decreases the size of indi
vidual land holdings in proportion to
iife Increase of population. It was at
this point that the United States ad
vanced far beyond the British system
when. In the Virginia legislature, Mr.
Jefferson -succeeded -In abolishing the
law of primogeniture and entail, mak
ing It impossible tp transmit large es
tates Intact from generation to gen
eration. Perhaps this reform in the
sj-stem of land tenures may be set
down as the greatest accomplishment
of the American revolution. At any
rate. It makes forever impossible in

A young girl was handsomely sup

one day: "I hope you tell him often
how you appreciate what he is doing
for you. If you give him a little caress
and a word of thanks every day or
two, he will feel the Investment is pay
ing good dividends."
"But I am not demonstrative, and
I cannot act a part," the girl replied.
"I cannot act affectionately unless the
mood is on me. I inherit that peculiar
ity, and cannot change my nature."
The girl's reasoning was all wrong.
She really did appreciate what her
uncle was doing for her, and her habit
of undemonstrativeness was not nat
ural, but the resuk of her early environment-
She had been reared by
parents who commanded obedience, and
