Why Join the Farm Bureau?
(Dennis Murphy, President Don
Hommo County, South Dakota,
Every time, we read a Harding
speech wo look for Harding English,
consisting mainly of rescuing ob
scure words from the oblivion to
which old Doc Noah Webster as
signed them, and if it be not "un
seemly" in us to say so, never yet
have we suffered any "involvement"
in disappointment, speaking after
the manner of "normalcy."
Recently, reading President Hard
ing's speech on Gen. Grant, we stum
bled on Mr. Harding's latest pet
word, "chcrishment," and wo sup
pose it will have to be added to the
Harding gallery of lost words. Dr.
Webster clearly bays the word is
"obscure." We suppose that is ex
actly why President Harding used
We wonder if the thought ever
occurs to some of the millions of the
"hard hit" that perfiaps there is a
deep affinity between Harding's lan
guage and Harding's policies. One
Is as obscure .as the other. Studying
the matter a bit further, we remem
ber that Mr. Harding came from an
obscure "Main Street" town, where
they probably still speak the pre
Shakesperean dialect of Chaucer or
Spenscs and don't know the earth
is round or rotates. In the Senate
who ever heard of him? He was
only discovered by Republican poli
ticians after the Lowdcn boodle
burst into a devastating storm. And
at the end of it all, we do not mourn
to contemplate the historical des
tiny awaiting him an obscurity
so obfuscate that not even Sir Conan
Doyle's gloomy spirits will over have
the courage to disturb it.
Give him a first-class fountain
pen or Eversharp pencil for his grad
uation present; our line is the larg
est in the county. Turnbaugh's

Draw up your easy chair and sit
down a niomont. I want ahoul ten
minutes of your time. I want? to
talk to you ahout the Farm Bureau,
an organization which Is of vital
Importance to you as an American
Do you know and appreciate just
what the Farm Durcau did for you
last year? I have given the proposi
tion a little study and I am going to
toll you just what it did for mo, and
then you can figure your benefits
for yourself, hearing in mind the
size of your farming operations. J
am farming a half section in Bon
Homme county, and in tho year 1921
the Farm Bureau, through tho na
tional office, mado tho following
savings for mo:
$140.00 u year by the defeat ol
tho Nolan bill.
$166.00 a year by tho defeat ot
tho Sales Tax bill.
$27.50 a year by the defeat of the
$30.00 a year "by the reduction of
$16.00 a year by the reduction ol
The total is $379.50
Sounds like a fairy tale, doesn't
It? If you doubt these things, get
a copy of the Nolan bill and the rest
of the bills and study them awhile.
Do some figuring with a pencil and
then after you ascertain the part
the American Farm Bureau Federa
tion played to protect our interests
you will feel proud of your organi
zation. I said the national office
which is supported by our fifty-cent
pieces, saved me $397.50 in 1921
Not only did they do it last year, but
the saving will be the same for this
year, 1922, and next year, and every
year that is to follow; the savings
will increase in proportion to the
manner in which wo back our or
ganization. The $397.50 I can fig
ure out for myself with my stub pen
cil, but what I can't figure out is the
untold good the American Farm Bu
reau Federation has done for us In
their great educational campaign
to enlighten tho city people, the
consumers of our products, as to the
condition and need of the American
Last year a bill providing for
three transcontinental concrete plea
sure boulevards was Introduced in
Congress. The automobile and ce
ment blocs backed the bill. The de
feat of this bill was largely duo tc
the American Farm Bureau Federa
tion. The Federal Road Program
now calls for "farm to market
roads, which will benefit the Ameri
can farmer. What was this worth
Packer control has been agitated
for twenty years. The Farm Bu
reau put it through. The Farm Bu
reau took grain exchange legislation
out of cold storage and passed it
Tho American Farm Bureau Feder
atlon Is still working away at the
"Truth In Fabric Law," and fight
ing for a further reduction in the
freight rates, not to mention better
credit laws and other big proposi
tions that are of vital interest tc
us. Have you ever stopped to realize
what the great co-operative market
ing program of the American Farm
Bureau Federation means to us in
dividually as well as collectively?
They have organized tho cotton
growers, the wool growers, the
grain growers, and are now hard at
work getting tho livestock producers
into one big organization.
I havo told you what tho Farm
Bureau bus done for me. It has done
tho samo for you. You know that
wo need organization. You know
that it is only through organization
that wo, as American farmers, can
over hope to securo that economic
Justice which will spoil prosperity
and health and happiness on our
farms and in our homes. You know
that it takes money to accomplish
this. Havo you paid your dues?
Havo you forgotten tho "great ag'
ricultural lesson of 1921?" Times
look brighter now; there's a cause
Let us help the cause.
"Forward" Is the slogan adopt
ed by the national office. I have
made my plea to you, believing sin
cerely In every word and statement
I havo mtfdo, No ono man nor
group of mou can do it all; it will
tuko a solid front moving "for
ward," Wo must servo ourselves.

FOB PRESIDING JUDGE.
S. E. Juden, Presiding Judgo of
tho County Court, authorizes The
Missouri Herald to lay his candidacy
for that office boforc tho people of
Pemiscot county, subject to the will
of the Democratic voters In tho Au
Following tho resignation of Ev-
crton Spccr about two yoars agot
who was elected Presiding Judgo In
1918,' Ed Juden was appointed to
1111 out tho unexpired term, which
will end January, next.
In this connection, The Missouri
Herald feels It a duty to state at
this time, lest there bo no misunder
standing owing to criticism we have
made and expect to contlnuo to
make, that we consider the present
County Court has proven to bo a
failure and a farce, due to the fact
that the Presiding Judge has no con
trolling voice In tho functionality of
that three-cornered body, the two
associates being at variance with the
Interest of the county, and having
the power, they have not hesitated
when expediency or politics could be
served, to ride roughshod over the
wishes and judgment of tho presid
ing official who, by such action, is
rendered as Immobile as a knot on
Backed up by two good associates,
we are confident that Ed Juden
would show his ability and purpose
to servo well the interest of the en
tire people regardless of personali
ties or politics; and we are sure the
people will return thatsort of a
verdict as soon as again permitted
to express their voice at the ballot
Ed Juden has been constantly be
fore the people of Pemiscot county
in some official capacity for over fif
teen years, and it would be a waste
of time on our part to attempt to
make him better acquainted. He
has been city marshal of Hayti, and
also postmaster here; he was deputy,
sheriff, and elected sheriff, which
office he filled for four years, and at
tho expiration of that time ho was
appointed Presiding Judge, as stated.
Shortly after that event something
else happened of far more impor
tance he broke into, fell into, or
in some manner got into, the news-j
paper game. He may get Into other
things, but ho will never get out of
the newspaper field. If he does he
will get back into it. A stake-and-rider
fence won't keep him out. We
speak from personal experience and
with the knowledge of the fates of
others. And at the risk of being ac
cused of being presumptious, wc will
assert that a seasoned newspaper
man makes the best of timber for
performing ofllcial duties. By the
very nature of his work his mind is
broadened and his backbone stif
fened, these being the needful pre
requisites of the present day, and
Hi our humble opinion the most
necessary things for the proper fill
ing of the office of Presiding Judge
of the County Court of Pemiscot
So, with all his other experience,
capped off with the editorial fever
and fervor, the people of P.emiscot
county will have to wake a mighty
county will have to make a mighty
thorough search to find a man bet
tor qualified than Is Ed Juden to fill
this important office. All voters will
do well to take full inventory of his
