Is Farm 7Ate Drudgery 2
Jt is thc law of the universe that
man mast work. With the fight in
centive he glories in it. Give him A
brood of little ones nestling in the lap
of the one ho chose from among all
others as most fitted to bear his name
in the home of tbeir joint making, he
rises beforo sun and takes no heed of
the going thereof, working incessant
ly toward the one clear goal-happi-r
noss and comfort for those near and
dear, inspire,him with love or goad
him by necessity, he becomes a Her
cules dr a Titan, miracles are per
formed by his brain and brawn which
the Man of Galilee might well have
wrought had he not in Ills Infinite
wisdom and mercy left many, things
for other men to do in the pride of
strength and tho humility of loving
service. Cheer him with the prattle
of children or reward bim with the
kiss and the handclasp of dependence
and faith, he goes forth dally to work
marvels. Compared with city llfeu
is farm life a drudg?ry? The farmer
rises to find the world bathed In the
glory of the dawn acroLu tho mea
dows and- pastures and waving fields
of cotton and grain, millions once
worshipped. HIB view ls unobstruct
ed, the horizon sweeps limitless be
fore him, unimpeded by the mean lit
tle things of life. He fills his lunge
to their full with puro fresh air, bals
amic and lige-giving. His eyes clear
as the sun rises; hip- brain leaps forth
to the calls of duty and the day; Iiis
muscles quiver like a race horse's,
for another race 1B to be run and the
stakes are success and prosperity,
hung high lr sight of those he took
before all th? ?vorld and brought in
to the world.
He remembers the parable of tho
loaves and fishes. He goeB forth with
a handful of seed, and comes back
with a harvest of plenty; another
miracle har, been wrought before his
eyes, he was a party to it. He sees
in the wake of the plow the daisy
which inspired "liable" Burns and
while there is no time to pick it from
the moist, fragrant earth, for the Bun
is mounting high, he recalls the
poet's words and they are pleasing
to tho mind, and he is glad it is given
to him to be near, very near, the in
spirational things of'the world.
Night draws on and weary-mlnd
?d, weary-muscled he turns home
ward. The doorway frames a pic
ture-wife and little ones are wait
ing. They help him with his work
al the barn, laughing in high glee
at the little, inobstructice, 'unimpor
tant things ot life; hand in hand, with
a little ono perched high on the shoul
der throne, they go in together and
fall lo the meal to which hunger and
health give savor and sauce.
The lamp is lighted and he tells the
stories of Jack and Jill, of little Jack
Horner and then at bed time draws
near ho. gives a serious turn to the
chatter and little heads bow'low as
little voices lisp, "Now I lay mo down
to sleep," and. two pair of adult eyes
mist as two adult brains pray God
the Bleep that knows no earthly wak-,
las may be Song, long defer ted.
Within the city, it is d'T3rent, men.
a- rep lotting and doing evil deeds,
women are fc"2--ttlng modesty and
virtue, children are being brought up
to scorn their parents, to live lab
orious days and riot- through licen
Uons nights. Anotherp nervous day.
ls giving - way to another nervous
night, brains' aro tired and mu s o', es
ache that have been chained to d?Bk
and machine all day. There is neith
er time no inclination for chati er,
wearily the world seeks Its cirtuouo
ccu^h or goss the way of the forget
ful and the mad, to come suddenly at
the end., oj the blind thoroughfare and
know at last it has all been purpose
less,'resultl ess chasing of tho butter
flies of pleasure. ,
On the farm the day's work '?as
been good, lt 'has betr< productive,
hundreds will be fed becau?c ono has
toiled. . Thc little onos drop off to
sleep and ara put to bed. Together
those two who mean all the world tu
each other stand for a. moment; and
look out on the starlit world and all
is peace and plenty, the petty mean
nesses of - life pall before'the Immen
sity of opportunity; another day ls
done, but a new one will Soon dawn;
the world is beautiful and life will
bo gathered and they may rest
through the winter months and read
and pinn gr?&t things for the future.
Content that so long as the merdea
of God prevail and tho miracles of
nature are. performed, os in the mil
lions of years gone by, their place
and plenty In the world are assured.
And this is drudgery!
Thanksgiving is a good thing;

THE EFFECT OF THE EUROPEAN

count of tho cheap cotton and high

injured any other part of the ?United

these products are high In price. This
