TIRED OF BACKGROUND.
Farmer Wants Same Consideration as
the City Worker.
Speaking for the 125,000 members
of the New York state grange in re
gard to cost of living the following
statement has been issued by S. J.
Lowell, state master and W. N. Giles,
The first factor in a happy life is
three meals every day. The next is
adequate clothing and housing to keep
the body warm. After these come the
minor necessities which are more easi
What has brought so suddenly Into
prominence the food and clothing prob
lem? The war, to be sure, but it has
only hastened what every thinking
ai riculturist has seen for years was
surely coining;: that is that the rural
dweller was not receiving the support
and ecliouragenient which his urban
brother so easily obtained. We mean
by this that better schools, better
cliuirehes. better hoies, short er hoturs.
better Wat for work under more
favorale conditions have had the re
sult of drawing froill the cotntry its
pollillationl to an alarming degree.
Now, instead of going into a sttidy of
our sitiation and develoiing a reiedy
of conditions. oil laboring brolters of
thf city pliropose to remedy otr' troible

at $1.50, which was then a high wage,
paid for 25 quarts of milk. Today the
farmer receives eight cents and trans
portation and distribution receive
eight cents, the consumer paying 16
cents. One day's pay for labor at $5 a
day buys 3-1 quarts of milk.
When wool was 30 'cents a pound,
allowing four pounds for a suit of
clothes, the farmer received for the
product $1.25. Figuring the cost of a
suit of clothes at $20, 13 days' labor at
$1.50 paid for a suit. Today wool is
65 cents a Ipound, four pounds bring
ing $2.60, the amount received by the
farmer. The same suit of clothes is
now $40, and the laborer can obtain a
suit by eight days of labor at $5 a
The comparison will hold with every
farm product. In view of these facts,
if agriculture is to be preserved and
the world fed, an economic adjustment
must be made.
May we call the attention of the
city dweller to two facts: The farmer
does not have to strike; he nn not be
discharged. No farmer ever did strike.
The statement that the Dairymen's
league went on a strike is not true.
Not a man quit his job; every man
milked his cow and the iimilk weit into
food as usual. No, we do not strike.
