Learn a Trade.
This writer for 30 years has ujg
ed young men to learn a trade or
adopt a profession. He has tried
oh all occasions to convince parents
ot the importance of starting the
son out in the business world equip
ed with experience in some par
ticular line of the trades and pro
fessions. When approached on the
subject the average parent comes
back at you with the question as to
what trade or calling is there the
most money in? Of course this
would be a hard question to answer
and the parent and son fritter
away a lot of valuable time trying
to decide where the most money is
and usually settle it in the end by
the boy accepting (?) a position in
the sales department of the large
merchantile establishment of Mess rs
Profit &. Gains. Now not over two
per cent of these boys ever make
good as salesmen and are soon let
out and start on in their quest for
a paying job where there is lots of
pay and little work They try one
thing and another but always look
ing for the soft job which is seldom
found. Finally after wandering up
and down the business world most
of them go to the dogs while only
a few go to work as a common labor
and spend the rest of their days
kicking themselves because they
neglected, when young, to establish
in some one of the substantial call
ings which would have made them
independent in their declining years

Sugar beet growers imported 250
Mexicans to work in the beet fields
Other beet growing districts will
probably follow the example as the

J. Ogden Armour, the packer, has
issued a long statement arguing
that the price of bacon at 50 cents
is no indication that the packers,
who pay 17 cents for live bogs, are
profiteering, because pi's feet,
hearts, snouts, tails ami various oth
er cuts sell for less than the price
at live weight The Democrat does
not know whether the packers are
profiteering or not, but it does know
that the line of Mr. Armour's state
ment does ot get anywhere. That
question will not be settled by con
sidering either pig's loins or pig's
tails. What Mr Armour should do,
if be really wishes to inform the
public, is to go the whole bog.

- Good Bargains.
Farming on shares is cimmon
practice. Agriculturists the world
around understand the system, but
one would need to look a long
while to find a farmer who would
even try to make a bargain as
thrifty as the one which Germany
is said to have offered to Switzer
land. The proffered' deal, as reported, is
that the Swiss shall go in for farm
ing on shares. Tney are to supply
the labor, capital, tools, setd, trans
portation and intelligence. Russian
land is to be used and the crop is
to be divided half and half between
the Swiss and the Russians? No,
If the crop is a failure, perhaps
the generous Kaiser will consent
that Belgium shall stand half the
