in that way cultivate more inten
sively, and obtain a much larger yield
and profit per acre than by dry farm
When you go beyond this field of
co-operation, you reach a field which
is now largely occupied by large cor
porations, which are exercising a pub
lic use and for that reason subject to
public control.
I believe that eventually the public
ownership of all public utilities is iu
evitable In this country; but I am
not a believer in the theory that we
are ready to-day for municipal owner
ship in all our cities or for the govern
ment ownership of all our railroads.
Municipal ownership without muni
cipal integrity may be a greater evil
than corporate ownership, "and the
last condition of that man be worse
than the first."
I believe that political honesty must
come before public ownership, and
that the only way we will ever get
political * honesty is to restore the
great majority of our people to the
land, where they will live close to
nature, and learn the obligations of
man to his fellow men, and the im
perative need of public integrity, by
learning to unite together to do things
for themselves.
Man is the product of his environ
ment. Man will be what he is trained
to be. And co-operation will train
men to be honest with each other and
with the public, because honesty and
integrity in the discharge of obliga
tions to one's fellow men is the
corner stone of co-operation.
Without It co-operation is a bouse
built upon the sands.
With such Integrity, co-operation is
a house built upon the eternal rocks
as a foundation.
And so it is that your movement for
the formation of farmers' associations,
in order that you may transact for
yourself the business of selling your
own soil products, is but a single
thread in the great cable of co-opera
tion which will finally warp our ship
of state off the rocks, and draw it to
a safe anchorage.
The profits that you will make for
yourself In the formation of these co
operative associations, and their man
agement, is the least of the reasons
which should impel you onward in the
We have reached a crisis In our
country's history.
It is a crisis threatening greater
danger than when the cloud of dis
union swept up from the south and the
nation was drenched in the blood of a
civil war.
The cancer of corruption following
lv the wake of great wealth is eating
out the vitals of our country.
I have shown you that there is but
one cure, and it Is to men of your class
that we must look for this cure.
In training yourselves to co-operate
jtogether to do things for yourselves
that one man cannot do for himself,
you are engaged in carrying out v
patriotic purpose just as noble as
though you had enlisted as a soldier
to shoulder your arms and march to
the front and lay down your life, if
need be, in repelling the army of a
foreign invader.
We are spending millions for forts
and navies and to maintain an army to
protect ourselves against the other
nations of the earth.
Our greatest danger is not from
foreign nations. It is in our midst.
It is at the very heart of our political
and social life.
And you who are here to-day are
pioneers in the great campaign which
-will result in overthrowing the cohorts
of corruption which will otherwise
destroy us.
,1 have been told that your move
ment meets with opposition. Those
[who oppose It are most unwise. It is
the lesson of all periods of the history
'of our race that reform movements,
'movements for the betterment of man
kind, even movements which merely
purport to be for human betterment,
and are of questionable character, have
been strengthened and built up and
'perpetuated by opposition and per
No greater stimulus to the growth of
your movement could exist than to
have it systematically opposed. Such
opposition rouses the combativeness
and aggressiveness which is in every
man's being, stimulates him to greater
effort, and encourages him to persevere
until obstacles have been overcome
which would otherwise have caused
It is another law of nature that
strength comes from strenuous strug
gle. The strong arm is the arm that
is used. The strong mind is the mind
that thinks. The strong man is the
man who has developed every fibre of
his physical vigor by use. The strong
races of the earth are those which
have survived oppression and over
come great obstacles in their develop
Be not discouraged by any condition
that may confront you.
Be not discouraged even by tempor
ary failure. It is the history of all
movements that failure must at times
be a part of their record.
But as the wise saying has it:
"Failures are but the pillars of suc
What others have done, you can do.
If you want successful illustrations of
co-operation among producers, go to
California and study the workings of
the associations which have beeu
formed there among the fruit growers
for the marketing of their product.
And the road to their success was
paved with many failures. At first
it seemed as though there were more
failures than successes.
But they persevered. They were
forced to swim or drown. They had
to learn to market their own products
or have their industries destroyed.
And they learned.
And so will you learn, if you will
persevere and be loyal to your follows
and to your movement.
If you want other illustrations of
successful co-operation, go among the
co-operative creameries of Wisconsin
or Michigan, or go among the co-op
erative canal companies of California
or Colorado or Montana;
If you want instances of gigantic
success in co-operation, go to England
to Ireland and to Belgium and to Den
mark and find it there.
The growth of the co-operative
stores in England has been something
marvelous. Starting with practically
nothing in the way of capital, in a
comparatively few years they have
built up a business aggregating mil
lions of dollars a year.
But they began right.
They began at the small end.
They began with the acorn and they
gradually developed the tree until it
has become a great strong oak.
If they had begun at the big end,
and subscribed a capital stock as large
as their present capital, and gone out
into the highways anc byways to hire
men to transact their business, form
ing a great organization in which no
man was trained to his duties, they
would have failed hopelessly and
miserably failed.
And so would any great business
enterprise started in that way.
Co-operation can be no exception to
the law of evolution.
You must begin with the seed and
let it grow gradually, as they did in
England with their co-operative stores.
The great central thought which
should be the pillar of fire by night
and the pillar of cloud by day to lead
the American people out of the wilder
ness of the corruptions and dangers
of accumulated and aggregated wealth
should be a great public movement in
the line of "making men" rather than
"making money."
Our government is upheld upon the
shoulders of its own people.
And as our citizenship is maintained
at a high standard of moral and physi
cal strength on the part of our men
and our women, just to that extent
will the strength of our nation be
If we would be sure of this, we
must keep our young men from flock
ing to the cities.
The way to do it Is to train them
through a system of education whi-'i
will equip them to solve the problems
of the country, and plant the idea in
their minds that the country after all
offers a greater stimulus for mental
activity than the city.
The most attractive problems of
this generation are in the country.
The building of good roads, the build-
Ing of better farm homes, the engineer
ing problems of the farm, the applica
tion of power to the needs of the farm
and the farm home, the lessening of
domestic burdens through better
domestic arrangements, the construc
tion of rural electric railways and
rural telephones and farm irrigation
systems and the application of machin
ery to all the uses of the farm, offer
a field for effort and Invention and the
application of energy to the farmer's
boy which no city can offer to him,
provided he has had the opportunities
of education to qualify him to solve
these problems.
There should be in every county in
this country a school where every
farmer's boy could, without going any
farther from home than the county
seat, learn to do all the things which
I have mentioned.
We have schools where a part of
this training may be obtained. The
Throop Polytechnic Institute at Pas
adena, California, and the Stout Man
ual Training School at Menominee,
Wisconsin, are of this class. But,
coupled with them should be the agri
cultural training which a boy gets at
the Doylestown National Farm School,
or in part at the summer school of the
Wisconsin State University at Mad
And every girl should have an equal
opportunity to fit herself for her duties
as the mistress of a farm home.
Out of such homes will come a gen
eration of strong, conservative and in
telligent men who ■« ill solve the great
problems of this people, and will solve
them so gradually and steadily that no
radical methods will ever need to be
They will put out of business the
politician who wants to ride in blood
up to his bridle bits, like an erstwhile
governor of Colorado, or the present
day .politician who seeks to ride Into
public office on a wave of prejudice
and champion the people's rights with
his voice, while his hand, like as not,
is in the pocket of some corporation.

nor in politicians.

So long as the people depend for re
lief upon politics, just that long will
they be disappointed.
When they team the lesson of the
fable of the lark in the meadow, and
go to work to do things for them
selves, talk politics less, and train
themselves to do things by co-opera
tion more, they will be surprised at
the progress they will make In the
right direction.
Politics, and a dependence on the
part of the people upon politics, are
the hope and the salvation of the cor
ruptionists and the trusts, and of
every combination of capital which
lives by skimming the cream from
the industries of the people.
If you want the cream yourself you
must do your own skimming.
You must not Imagine for moment
that what I have advocated is a mere
theory. It is far more than that It
is a broad highway leading us out of
the social and political bog in which
we have been mired down.
There are instances here and there
all over this country where the seed
has been planted and is thriftily grow
You see the movement at work In
the increased interest in country life,
in nature study in the school, in the
establishment of such institutions as
the Doylestown Farm Training School
in Pennsylvania; in the Pingree po

farm associations which are working
it out in many cities.
You see it in the school gardens
which are being established in so
many places and in the Increased Inter
est, in agricultural training as a part
of our public school system.

of the Department of Agriculture as

We were standing at the counter of
a sumptuous barroom in Sau Antonio
where Barclay and the two English
men in the party had met by appoint
ment Barclay had a ranch to sell
which the Englishmen, two heavy-set,
redfaced, high booted fellows were
about to purchase. I had acted aa
broker in the transaction and was
well pleased with the price settled up
on and anxious that no "hitch" oc
cur to delay the immediate closing of
the bargain.
The bar-tender put out four glasses
and a bottle of liquor in anticipation
of our order and the two Englishmen
and myself poured a good "three fing
ers" into our glasses, but Barclay hesi
tated a moment and then said, "I
think I'll take sarsaparilla."
The Englishmen glanced at each
other significantly. "We're not buying
soft drinks today, partner," said one.
Barclay hesitatingly poured out a
good sized drink and raised it to his
lips and turned toward the English
men who smiled their approval.
A strange thing then occured. Bar
clay took off his hat and looked into
the crown of it for a minute and then
set the untouched liquor on the bar
again. "Gentlemen," he said, "You'll
have to excuse me, but I cannot drink
liquor." Todd, one of the Englishmen,
banged his fist down on the bar and
exclaimed: — "If you can't drink with
us, you can't trade with vs — that's
Barclay turned to him, his face
very white, and said slowly: — "Then
the deal is off gentlemen."
Presently Barclay said, "I'll admit I
should like to trade with you, gentle
men, but the trade can go to the devil
if I have to drink whiskey in order to
make it. I will tell you why I can't
drink liquor if you will listen a mom
ment. You may think it took courage
to refuse to drink, but I tell you it
would have taken more courage to
have accepted it" He drew a news
paper clipping from his pocket book
and laJd It down where we could all
see it "That's exhibit No. 1," he re
For a moment we started in amaze
ment at the great black letters which
spelled the word GUILTY. The arti
cle following said that John Barclay
was convicted of murder in the first
degree, but that sentence was post
poned through respect to the prison
er's mother who dropped dead in the
courtroom upon hearing the verdict.
"That's nice stuff for a man to read
about himself, eh?" said Barclay, with
a feeble smile. He folded the slip,
put it back in his pocket-book and
produced another which read "Bar
clay to be hanged on the twenty-first
"Gentlemen," he said, "the immedi
ate cause of those two notices was
murder. The prime cause was — well,
what is "murder' spelled backward?"
Without waiting for an answer he
traced the letters of the word with his
pencil in the order suggested: "RED
An embarrassed silence followed.
"Gentlemen, the rum that I drank
murdered my mother. At that time,"
continued Barclay, "my mother and I
were living in a boarding house kept
by an old maid of uncertain means and
temper. I had just returned from a
cattle-trading trip and was regaling
'the boys' with a little up-country gos
sip and some hot rum. I remember it
was eleven o'clock at night. The
whole scene comes back to me now : the
hot rum-and-water laden air; the great
stove, red with rage and energy. There
my remembrance of the scene ends.

an Interest in agriculture and the pros

You see it in the awakening inter
est in co-operation everywhere, in t*ie
co-operative associations that are being
formed, In the rapid growth of co
operative creameries and co-operative
producers' associations of all kinds.
And the one thing which will make
it more easily possible, which will tend
the most to draw the city dweller to
the country and relieve the lonesome
ness and isolation of the farm life, are
the good roads, for which a great move
ment is now gathering force, and the
electric railway systems which are
threading the rural districts in every
thickly settled farming section of our

When I awoke I was horrified to find
myself in a prison cell. The Jailer
stood at the door and cautioned, "Re
member anything you say may be used
against you." A great dread sat, like
a lump of ice, on my heart I begged
him to explain. Anything but that
awful suspense. Then he told me I
had murdered MissC., the old landlady.
"My trial was set down for a date
about a month off and my angel moth
er secured the best and ablest coun
sel to defend me; but, best of all, she
came to me In my agony and put her
hand on my forehead, and then kissed
me and told me that she believed me
innocent How she could logically do
it, with evidence enough against me
to damn an angel, I don't know, but
she did it with her woman's heart, and
her woman's heart broke when, at
length, the jury told her she had been
"Gentlemen," resumed Barclay, after
a pause, "I used to believe all lawyers
rascals until that time. But the way
that man worked for me was nothing
short of sublime. He labored with me
day In and day out, morning, noon,
and night, striving by all mean 9
known to philosophy, science and prac
tice, to recover from the sensitive
plates of my memory the picture print
ed on them by a rum-enfeebled spirit
between the hours of eleven P. M. and
two A. M. on the night of the murder.
But it was of no use. Evidently the
films of memory had been temporarily
desensitized by the stupefying influ
ence of the alcohol. Anyway, nothing
could bring the dreaded pictures of
that awful period to the surface.
"I shall not bore you with, the har
rassing details of the trial. It was
shown, however, that I had been dis
covered in Miss C's room. I was on
the floor in a drunken sleep when the
officers arrived, and was completely
dressed, even to my overcoat and hat.
Near my right hand, as if I had but
recently relaxed my hold upon it, lay
my pistol. One of the cartridges had
been discharged and the bullet found
in Miss C's body fitted the empty
"My lawyer used to come to my cell
and implore me to use every trick and
device that I knew to bring back the
chain of events of that fateful night,
but I could only gaze at him stupid
ly. So far I c«uld go, but no further.
At a certain point the cloud of obliv
ion would drop before my mind, and
I could not penetrate it. I thought
that by thinking with great rapidity,
and running with exact sequence
along the chain of occurences leading
up to a certain hour, the mental mom
entum thus acquired might carry me
through into the realms of my mental
darkness. But It was without avail.
You can drive a horse at a furious
rate right up to the brink of a lake,
but there he will stop, and not budge
an inch further; and the blackness of
the lake in front of him is no blacker
than the blackness of that hell-born
period of five or six hours of oblivion
that confronted me. O, the helplessness
of it all. I used to sit and watch my
lawyer fight against such overwhelm
ing odds that the admiration I felt for
his skill would, at times, so absorb
me that I felt the part I was taking in
the awful tragedy.
"To make a long story short, the
case finally went to the jury. You
have seen the newspaper clippings.
The verdict killed my mother who had
never once left my side during the
trial, except at night, and then only to
resume her place the first thing in
the morning. She had been hoping
against hope. When mother dropped
dead, I offered a silent prayer of
gratitude that she had not lived to
witness the last act
"On the morning of the twenty-first,
as the clipping says, I was brought
before the judge, an old friend of my
father, and sentenced to be hanged by

coffee, instead of Arbuckles' ARIOSA,
he doubtless believes he is doing you a
favor, whereas he is really def riving
you of the most wholesome and deli-
cious beverage that you can buy, some-
thing better than anything else he can
sell you for theprice. The sales of
Arbuckles' ARIOSA Coffee exceed the
sales of all other package coffees in the
United States combined, and the busi-
ness of Arbuckle Bros, exceeds that of
the four next largest concerns in the
world, simply because the public ac-
tually receives better coffee for their
money in Arbuckles' ARIOSA than
they can^u^ in any other way.
Arbuckles' ARIOSA Coffee is good
to drink— it quetches the thirst and
tastes good. Most people need it. It
aids digestion, increases the power and
ambition to work and it makes one feel
like^doing^ things— no after depression.

come back to haunt the place.
"Presently the head jailer came to
me and told me that a fire had taken
place in the neighborhood the night
before, in which two strange men were
so badly burned that death was but
a matter of hours with them. One of
the men, when he was told that he
could not live, sent for the minister
and confessed to having committed the
murder I had been convicted of. His
story, which was subsequently confirm
ed by the other burglar, was, substan
tially, that they had come to our
town in quest of proper prey. They
had learned that Miss C had many
well-to-do boarders in her house, some
of whom carried money with them in
large amounts, and they had determin
ed to rob the house. The hour was
late, and the night very tempestuous
and black, the very elements seeming
to favor the wicked purpose of those
men. Their plan was to go to Miss C's
room and secure the keys of the
house, after which they could loot at
leisure. Accidently, however, they
awakened the landlady, who immedi
ately set up such an unearthly scream
ing that it was found necessary to
despatch her without more ado. One
shot was enough for the dastardly
purpose, and the poor old creature,
who had never done any other harm
than to ask for her just dues, went
quickly 'over the river.' The robbers
then paused for a moment to ascertain
If anyone in the house had been arous
ed by the shot Concluding finally
that the storm had drowned the re
port of the pistol, they determined to
leave at once, as the murder had so
unnerved them that they had no
thought of theft, but cared only to
get away. As they were going out,
however, they discovered a man lying
In the hall at the landing, near Miss
C's door, in a drunken stupor. Then it
occured to them to drag the man noise
lessly into her room, and leave him
there with a pistol on the floor near
his hand. Their motive in doing this
was to divert suspicion from them
selves, as they were strangers in the
place. When they discovered that I
had a pistol in my pocket similar to
their own, they exchanged catridges;
hence the empty shell in mine.
"Gentlemen, that is my story."
Presently he said:
"I know there's one question you
all want to ask. You want to know
what I've got in my hat that had such
a startling effect upon me. I will i
tell you what it is, — it's a picture,—
it's not that of mother, nor my sweet
heart, but," — and he held his hat with
the inside turned toward us.
There was a picture there, one that
caused us all to shudder. It was the
picture of a gallows.
Todd extended his hand.
"The deal is on," he said.
Didn't Keep the Appointment*
A young American student at Prague
fell deeply in love with a pretty Ger
man girl and sent her a note propos
ing a place of meeting. He wrote:
"That my darling may make no mis
take, remember, I will wear a light
pair of trousers and a dark cutaway
coat. In my right hand I will carry a
cane and in the left a cigar. Yours
ever, Jake." The girl's father got hold
of the note and sent this answer:
"Dot mine future son make no mis
take, I vill be dreshed in mine shirt
