“ We must not hope to be mowers,
And to gather the ripe gold ears,
Unless we first have been sowers
And watered the furrowa with tears
It ia not just as we take it.
This mystical world of ours
Life’s field will yield as we make it,
A bar vest of thorns or of flowers.” i
ft get bark our mete as we measure—
ft cannot do wrong and feel right—
>Jor can we give pain and gain pleasure,
For justice avenges each alight
The air for the wing of the sparrow,
The bush for the robin and wren,
But always the path that is narrow
And straight for the children of men.
We cannot make bargains for blisses.
Nor catch them like fishes in nets;
And sometimes the thing our life misses
Helpa more than the thing which it gets;
For good lieth not in pursuing.
Nor gaining of great nor of small,
But just in the doing, and doing
As we would be done by, is all.”
—Alice Cary
USELESS experts and high
An eminent expert who perhaps will
sometime become a profeasor of entomo
logy and will then be honored with the
privilege of adding Ph. D. to his signa
ture, has discovered that the Culex Pun
gens (the mosquito) is an amiable insect,
having neither animosity nor malevolent
designs against human beings, and that
he punctures their skins with his firm,
long proboscis because he is hungry. This
is a wonderful discovery and the state
ment of this expert should be commend
ed for its clarity, if not for its import
ance. We hope that when he becomes a
scientist he will retain his lucidity of
expression, this being a faculty which
many scientists do not seem to possess.
To illustrate:
We have before us a long article writ
ten by a scientific professor, the subject
being “The Normal and Abnormal Ger
mination of Grass Fruits.” He says: “At
normal germination the coleorhiza breaks
through the base of the fertile glume
within a zone whose mechanical resist
ance is greatly lessened by the reduction
and differentiation of the epidermal and
hypodermal cells. The prosecchyma
tous tissue yields along lines of con
tact of the sclerenchymatous cells and
the short basal elements of the glume,”
etc., on, on and on, ad nauseam, through
several pages. This stuff was published
and sent to farmers for their benefit It
is so useless to them that it will not
even serve to divert their attention for a
moment from such minor inflictions as
book agents, brooding hens, potato bugs
and breachy cattle.
One more illustration: A scientific
mathematician of world repute thus de
fined a mathematical term: “Dirichlet’s
conditions:—the conditions of finity and
continuity (except for a finite number of
discontinuities) and possessing only a
finite number of maxima and minima
within an interval, under which condi
tions a function is integrable throughout
the interval.”
This is meaninglets to the average
mind as was “Mene, mene, tekel up
harsin” to Belshazzar.
The best friends of labor, both organized
and unorganized, are fearful that the right
to strike baa been emphasized too much
and, that when it conflicts with the gen*
eral right of every one to a peaceful life,
it must give way to the greater good of
the greatest number. It seems to ua that
the right to quit work is an individual,
personal right which should be exercised
individually and personally. We do not
believe the right to quit should be exer
cised collectively with other employes in
such a manner as to endanger public
health, peace and safety. This much,
however, is certain: The right to quit,
either individually or collectively, does
not carry with it the right to debtroy
property, commit assault and battery or
to murder people.
"If you mean to challenge tie righte
ousness of free men to be protected in
their lawful pursuits I will be glad to
join you in submitting that question to
the decision of the American people.”
—President Harding
The Eastern State Agricultural and !
Industrial League has found that the
farm land under cultivation in New Eng
land is now less than half as much aa it ;
waa forty years ago. The result is that
this section is producing only about 25
per cent of its food requirements, and
annually sends, wear and south, about
3500,000,100. These figures seem to be
exaggerated but they are so conservative
that we find they indicate an average per
capita cost of food in New England of 25
cents a day, and tne percentages show
that three-fourths of this 25 cents go to
t and south. State and industrial
ations show that the retail cost of
ducts in New England are at leaat
,.. went higher than in the aouth and
middle west because of freights and inter
mediate profits of eommiaaion merchants.
This of course affects wagea and handi
caps our manufacturing industries. It is
poor busine s policy for us to send 3500,
000,000 a year to competitive territory.

Eight years ago the United States was
one of the few countries whose credit was
worth 100 cents on t le dollar and whose
national securities could be sold above
par. Since then we have loaned more
than $26,000,000,000 to foreign countries
and in addition to that have paid out
some 20,000,000,000 one hundred cent
dollars for our wat expenses. This shows
that, in money, our war expenses and
war loans were as great as those of any
other country. Our national bonds are
still above par and our dollar is worth
100 cents, while the credit of most trans
Atlantic countries is far from being good
and some of them have no credit what
ever. We have given $5,000,000,000 to
feed the hungry and nurse the sick over
there, and after all we have done for
them they hope we will cancel their
debts. This hope is not confined to their
statesmen and diplomats. It is in the
mind of almost every one of the peop.e
of England and France. We have worked
hard for many years and have never held
a platter for a donation. We would now
like to have them follow our example.
A Washington despatch to the New
York Herald has this announcement:
“Opening gun fired to get Tariff out of
party politics. Organization formed for
adoption of non-partisan, scientific plan.’'
A great many opening guns have been
fired for this purpose and every one of
them proved to be a pop gun loaded with
compressed hot air.
“Ephraim feedeth upon wind.”
—Hosea xii, 1.
“I must insist that the price of bitu
minous coal be kept down at Portland,”
says Fuel Commissioner Lane. What’s
the use to “insist?” Insistance will prove
to have just about as much effect on
profiteers as saying ‘shoo’ would have on
a pack of hungry wolves. Profiteers will
keep right along robbing the public until
jail sentences deter them.
Speaking at the Republican rally at Is
land Park Governor Baxter said: “I want
to see our citizens employed at fair wages
for which they will give an adequate re
turn. I want the peopie of Maine to own
their homes, for in that way above all
others, they become attached to the State
and realize that they are in truth a part
: o f it.” So we say, all of us.
The right to work is as sacred as the
i right to quit. Liberty is gone in Ameri
ca when any man is denied by anybody
the right to work and live by work. It
does not matter who denies. A free
A merica has the right to labor without
any other’s leave.
President Harding.
“It is better for thia country to feed,
cloth and hcuse our labor in this country
than to support foreign labor in" other
countries with our money.” We do not
think the moat arrant free trader will
dispute the truth ot the above Statement
Advocates of free trade talk much
about the dire evils resulting to a pro
tective tariff, but you never hear them
allude to the good which a protective
tariff has done.

The memorial sermon at the church
Sunday, Aug. 20, by Rev. Wm. \aughan
was pronounced the best ever given here.
A soprano solo by Mrs. Albert Porter was
much appreciated and there was an abund

day School placed on the graves of the
departed members and friends.
He may weir last year’s straw hat, his
finger nails may need manicuring; his vest
may hang a little loose, and his pants bag
at the knees, his face may show signs of
a second day’s growth, and the tin dinner
bucket he carries may be full of dents and
doughnuts; but don’t you call him the
■‘old man ” He’s your father.
For years and years he has been rustling
around to get things together Never
once has he failed to do the right thing by
you. He thinks you the greatest boy on
earth, bar non , even though you plaster
your hair back, wear smart clothes,
smoke cigarettes, and fail to bring home
a cent. He is the man who won the love
and life parternership of the greatest wo
man on earth—your mother.
He is “some” man and not "the old
man.” If you win as good a wife as be
did, you will have to go some.—Telephone
“Let every American, every lover of
I liberty, every wall-wisher to his posterity,
swear by the blood of the Revolution
never to violate in the least particular the
laws of the country and never to tolerate
■ their violation by others. As the patriots
I of ’76 did to the support of the Declaration
' of Independence, so to the support of the
j constitution and the laws, let every Am
erican pledge his life, his property and his
sacred honor; let every man remember
that to violate the law is to trample upon
the blood of his fathers and to tear the
charter of his own and his children’s li
berty. Let reverence for the laws be
breatned by every American mother to
the lisping babe that prattles on her lap.
Let it be taught in schools, in seminaries
and in colleges. Let it be written in pri
mers, spelling books and almanacs. Let
it be preached from the pulpits, proclaim
ed in legislative halls and enforced in
courts of justice. In short, let it become
the political religion of the nation.
