THE FARMERS THE CUSTODIANS
OF THE NATION'S MORALITY.
C.operatlon of Church, School and
Press, Essential to Community
By Peter Radford
Lecturer National Farmers Union.
The church, the press and the school
form a triple alliamnee of progress that
guides the destiny of every commun
ity, state end nation. Without them
cviuzation would wither and die and
tbrough them life may attain its great
est blessing, power and knowledge.
The farmers of this nation are greatly
Indetted to this social triumvirate for
thefr:nplifing Influence, and on behalf
of the American plowmen I want to
thank those engaged In these high
camntn for their able and efficient
service,.and I shall offer to the press
a sviles oT aiticles on co-operation
between these impurtant Influences
and the .fhriners In the hope of In
creasing the efflcincy of all by mu
tual undergtidhir and brganized ef
foit. We will take up, fIrst. the rural
The Farmers Are Great Chur'ch Build
The.American farmer is the greatest
church builder the world has ever
known. He is the custodian of the
natioli's morality; upon his shoulders
rests the "ark of the covenant" and
he is more responsive to religious in
fluences than any other class of cit
The farmers of this nation have
built 120,000 churches at a cost of
$750,00,000, and the annual contribu
tion of the naion toward all church
institutions appr-imates $200,000,000
per m um. The -armers of the Uni
ted States build 22 churches per day.
There &re'20,000,000 rural church com
muniumits on the farm, and 54 per
cent of. the total membership of all
churches reside in the country.
The farm is the power-house of all
-progress and the birthplace of all that
Is noble. The Garden of Eden was
in the country and the man who would
get close to God must first get close
The Functions of a Rural Church.
If the rural churches today are go
ing to render a service which this age
demands, there must be co-operation
between the religious, social and eco
nomic life of the community.
The church to attain its fullest meas
ure of success must enrich the lives
of the people In the community It
serves'; It must btuild character, devel
op thought and increase the efficiency.
of human life. It must serve the so
cial, business and Intellectual, as well
as the spiritnal and moral side of life.
If religion does not make a man more
capable, more useful and more just,
what good is it? We want a practical
religion, one we can live by and farm
by, as well as die by.
Fewer and Better Churches.
Blessed Is that rural community
which has but one place of worship.
While competition is the life of trade,
it Is death to the rural church and
moral starvation to the community.
Petty sectarianism is a scourge that
blights the life, and the church preju
dice saps the vitality, of many com
munities. An over-churched commlzn
Ity Is a crime against religion, a seri
ous handicap to society and a useless
tax upon agriculture.
While denominations are essential
and church pride commendable,, the
high teaching of universal Christianity
must prevail if the rural church Is to
fulfill Its mission to agriculture.
-We frequently have three or four
churches in a community which is not
able to adequately support one. Small
congregations attend services once a
month and all fail to perform the re
ligious functions of the community.
The division of religious forces and
the breaking into fragments of moral
efforts is ofttimes little less than a
calamity and defeats the very purpose
they seek to promote.
The evils of too many churches can
be minimized by co-operation. The
social and economic life of a rural
community are respective units and
cannot be successfully divided by de
nominational lines, and the churches
can only occupy this important field
by co-operation and co-ordination
The efficient country church will
definitely serve its community by load
ing in all worthy efforts at community
building, In uniting the people in all
co-operative endeavors for the gen
eral welfare of the community and in
arousing a real love for country life
and loyalty to the country home and
these results can only be successfully
accomplished by the united effort of
the press, the sohool, the church and
-Deafness Cannot Be Cured~
by local applications, as they cannot

There is only one way to cure deafness,
and that is by constitutional remedies.
Deafness is caused by an infilmrn d condi

you have a runbling sound or imperfect

Deafness is the result, and unless the in
