For some illogical reason a well
dellned but quite unnecessary jeal
ousy still exists between city people
and country folk. The city dweller
envies the farmer his freedom of ac
tion and his healthy, invigorating
work, while the people of the farm
envy the city man's "clean" work
and more exciting type of amuse
ments. Both sides of the argument are
right, and both sides are equally
wrong. There is a hack-to-the-farm
moement in the city and there is a
back-to-the-city moement on the
farm. The city man wishes to leave
behind the daily grind of the oflice or
workshop and seek a new life in the
country. The farmer, or the farm
er's son. wishes to leave behind the
monotonous manual labor of tilling
the soil and seek the "easy" life of the
city, with all the luxury and gayety
of city living.
The proper place for each one is
just where he Is. Particularly today
this point is to be emphasized. The
world is at war. To win the war
and put the world at peace is the task
to which we are all consecrated. The
utmost otficiency is demanded of
everyone. The farmer must remain
at his plow to insure a constant food
supply to our armies. It is no time
for clerks and mechanics to leave
their jobs to trade places with the
farmer. It is not the time for the
farmer to come to town to try his
hand at the office or in the shop.
Then, why this jealousy between
the two? Is not the work of each
equally necessary? The only answer
we have to this question is in the
spirit of the average American. Our
forefathers, the pioneers who blazed
the trails into the wilderness, had
this same spirit. It is that of trying
something new. Xo American is ever
satisfied with his present state. He
Is constantly seeking for something
new. So it is with the farmer and his
sons and daughters. And so it is with
the habitants of our cities. The place
for Americans now is the place for
which the individual is best trained
to All efficiently.
A St. Louis man was painfully in
jured recently when his new motor
car refused to stop at the command,
"Whoa!" Thi3 motorist was slightly
ahead of his time. Motor cars of the
future will doubtless have the human
brain attachment, but the 1917 mod
els aretill lacking in this respect.

"JIIss Haroun AI-Baschld."
The fantastic and fascinating title,
"Miss Haroun Al-Raschid," suggests
unusual noelty and expectation
finds abundant fulfillment. It might
be called the footnotes to Arabian
Knights, but it is most thoroughly
modern in its treatment and in its
romance. It is a story of Joy and ad
venture, of romance, of fun, and of the)
zest of life. It was written by Jessie
Douglas Kerruish in competition for
the $5,000 prize, which it easily
captured. As an example, of a first
novel by a new writer It exhibits a
vivacity, a nerve and an amazing
wealth of incident that would crown
the work of a tried and skilled writer.
Its plot is laid in Mesopotamia and
as an accurate transcpirt of Oriental
life it is of particular intrinsic in

well worth reading.
