though thc dweller in town ami city, and
the professional men and the so-called
aristocrats, in other words the non-pro
ducers, tho consumers of tho world, are
rather disposed io look with a smile of
contempt on tho toiling farmer, and to
think the laboring man is one to be
spurned and trodden upon, yid the truth
is tho farinors is at tho very foundation
of tho w hole suporstuelurc of human so
ciety and if t he farmer should fail todo
his duty, the w hole altair would tumble
to ruin; he feeds and cloths the world
amt the world should pull oil its hat and
bow profoundly to tho man who makes
his bread and meat end clothes for him,
truly the position of the farmer ls a
most important one ami calls for the
greatest possible exercise ol' brain ami
muscle, oh for more education and great
er intelllgeno among the farmers,
ll" he will but bring more skill
ami more brain to the accomplish III not of

For Mutual Protection.
New England Cotton Manufacturers Or
ganizing Against the Knights of Labor.
BOSTON, April 28.-Tho Commer
cial Bulletin of Saturday morning
will say: Tho sudden and and un
expected collapse of what was
thought to bo a serious strike at
Wbittenton Mills, Taunton, was
caused by tito discovery that the
mill belonged to a huge organiza
tion of textile industries of New
langland, which lias been formed
so quietly that it has escaped all
notice. This organization extends
over Rhode Island and Connecti
cut, and already includes li) large
woolen mills, with such cotton
mills a< tito Lonsdale and Hope
mills. This society was organized
jor mutual protection. It duos not
recognize tho authority or dicta
tion of Hie Knight- ot' Labor in any
way, luit is prepared lo use arbi
tration in thc settlement ofistrikes.
The organization is growing in
numbers and it proposes to give
each strike careful consideration
and assist only those manufactur
ers who are unfairly (rented by
their help. A second society, em
bracing all the cotton mills nf any
importance in Maine, New Hamp
shire ami Massachusetts, wan qui
etly completed and elected Its ofll
cers in Boston on Wednesday.
The Massachusetts League is a
league of cotton mills to which
woolen mills are to be admitted,
while thc Rhode Island society was!
formed by tho woolen mills and
subsequently admitted cotton man
ufacturers. During the last month
the cotton mills ol* this State have
been quietly preparing lor organi
zing for mutual insurance against
labor disturbances. The cotton
manufacturing Industry is bid ter
adapted for I lie formation ot" such
an organization than many others
because it ls composed of a number
of large mills, rather than a large
number of small ones. The quio!
organization which has taken place,
tb ore fore, has been conducted with
much expedition, and its result
