IIOIM FAJtMINO l'AY IIKItK?
Frequently we are askpdthls ques
tion, and find It is capable of two
answers. If a man desires to make
money in the sense that a merchant,
manufacturer or bankor makes It
andetlre to live on , ills "surplus,"
It might Imj said It does not pay. Tn
treating tho question tho Pacific
Farmer says :
"Jf a man want simply a living,
with continuous labor, little by little
increasingthe value of his farm, and
contented when old age overtakes
him at a lime he is no longer able
for hard labor, to have simply a
competency, and the quiet and peace
of a usefully sjent life, then (arm
ing pays. A farmer hasa hard tight
of it with tho monopolies and other
business and governmental agencies
preying upon him at every turn.
And itisonlv bv Intelligence, nru-
donce, caution and great industry
that actual farming pays now any
profit, oyer and above tho merest
"His land Is all tho time advanc
ing In value with the increase In
population, and often he can so sell
out his laud as to raise a handsome
stake, In cush. Rut this last item is
laudspeculatlou, not farming. Vast
numbers of Western men have made
money in this wuy. iluying land
at fo per acre, and holding it until
It iHV'orth (50, docs not prove that
farming pays, or tho man who does
it is a good farmer. Farming has
never been an especially profitable
bushiest, and Is less inviting to. lay
than ever. There are other reasons
than simple gain that lead men to
follow farming, which are well
known and need not be discussod
Wi: wonder whether there Is such
a thing as a whisky trust with a
puweiful lobby. There wi most
unquestionably a few years ago; but
as Mr. Cleveland falls to allude to
anything of the kind It must have
passed out of existence. Perhaps
tho law passed not long ago, which
practically permits tho whisky men
to my their ta.es when they please,
was a spontaneous production of
congress and not tho result of tho
log-rolling of a powerful Interest.
Perhaps the plethorlu democratic
campaign fund knows nothing of
dollars contributed by tho whisky
ring. Perhaps when Mr. Wnttorson
was denounced by a brothor demo
cratic editor of Kentucky as a
hireling of tho whisky ring an In
ustlco was done him. Perhaps.

A piactleal temperance sennou Is
)reaelied by a New Orleans paper
which tells of a printer who, when

and found that he had on deposit
