HOW WOULD HE DO IT?
"We propose to legislate for the
farmer so that he can deal directly
TPith the consumer ,and so that when
the consumer pays for produce the
money may go directly into the pock
ets of the farmer, and by this means
we will cope with the high cost of
living as no other means can."Col.
The foregoing is a sentence from a
speech which Col. Roosevelt iecently
made in Oklahoma. He has made
substantially the same statement in
a score, or perhaps in, hundreds of
speeches, so it cannot be regarded as
a slip of the tongue, an accidental ab
But that it is an absurdity who can
deny? Why does not the farmer deal
directly with the consumer now? Ts
there any law preventing or prohibit
ing it? Could any law be enacted
that would compel it?
Everybody knows that in a limited
way the farmer does deal directly
^with. the consumer now. In the small
towns farmers do sometimes drive
from door to door selling their pro
duce direct to the consumer. So there
is no law against it.
But everybody knows, also, thatj
speaking broadly ,it is, and will al
ways be, wholly impossible for thements.
farmer to deal directly with the con
sumer. How could a farmer with a
hundred fat steers to sell, deal direct
ly with the consumers of meat? How
could a farmer with 10,000 bushels of
wheat in his granaries deal directly
with the people who eat bread? How
could a great city like Chicago be fed
Jf its people could deal only with the
farmers who produce the food upon
which they subsist?
On the streets of New York the
other day a woman orator declared
that meat was high because the meat
trust would not kill cattle enough, and
'If Roosevelt were president he would
compel them to kill more cattle!"
The whole country laughed at theSuperintendent
ridiculous declaration, and said:
"How like a woman."
But the speech of'the'woman' was
not one whit more absurd than this
studied and repeated statement of the
third term candidate himself that "we I promised by our
would legislate so that the farmer can i friend, Judge P.
ueal directly with the consumer." It
is not only undesirable economically,
but it is impossible^ physically,
everybody knows it.

Ventilate Your Bedroom
A.s soon as the harvest is giving
leisure to the men who have been
working hard all summer, they should
think about their wjnter sleeping
quarters. According to the state An

residents is aided by poor ventilation
in the bedroom. Every one needs
plenty of fresh air when he sleeps,

THE FULL DINNER PAIL
This was the famous phrase that
represented the spirit of the cam
paigns of 1896 and 1900. It was derid
ed as merely material and fleshly.
At the same time every sensible
worker in philanthropic societies and
churches, knows that it is of no use
trying to convert anyone until he is
decently fed and clothed and warmed.
Similarly in politics. The fundamen
tal question, the one that take's prece
dence of every other, is that of the
full dinner pail. A party may pro
pose all kinds of alluring reforms, and
some of them may be good ideas. At
the same time, if the party leaders
lack a certain practical business or
common sense, they may make
mess of the business of the country
that will leave no hope or energy left
for the trying of experiments. When
a workingman finds the notice "clos
ed for lack of orders' 'posted up-on
his workshop door, the only thing
that comes into his mind is now he
can open up that factory.
In the four years from 1893 to 189?
the traveler about the country was
confronted everywhere by tbe gloomy
sight of silent factories, no smoke
coming out of the chimneys, no sign
