DONT BE A QUITTER

We cannpt always find, the ways .-'-
That lead to waiting treasures;
There must sometimes be dismal days -
That are'devoid of pleasures ;
The winds that blow so softly now i
' Tomorrow may be bitter; ,.
The storms will" come, but, anyhow,
Don't be a quitter.
We cannot always do the things
We wish we might be doing; .-.
We may not all be dukes or kings, ,
Some men must do the hewing;
Some men must plow and some must sow,
While some in jewels glitter,
But, if your place is high or low,
Don't be a quitter.
Some men may live in idleness ; .
On fortunes they inherit,
And some men never may possess
The sweet rewards of merit;
Some men may ride in lordly state, , . . .
While others bear the litter: -But,
rich or poor, or small or great,
Don't be a quitter. f
You cannot win by sitting in
Y'our corner, -sighing gravely ;
Inflate your chest, thrust out your chin,,
And do your duty bravely; '
You may have cause to be in doubt,
Your hardships may be bitter,
But never let the world lind out , .
Don't be a quitter.

(Written Specially for The Bulletin.)!
A neighbor wfco has better means '
than I for learning .the sentiment of
farmers generally In this vicinity
tells me that the . discouragement and
disgust over labor conditions, Which
have been jjrowing worse for several
years, has now reached . almost the
breaking point. . . . j
In 1917 and 1918 farmers here
abouts, - in common with those of
practically all other parts of the
country, 'worked- like galley slaves to
bring about a ' bumper production, i
They did this in answer to appeals
and exhortations and promises un- i
numbered from the government at '
Washington. They did It less in the
hope of profit than for the sake of
patriotism. They drew heavily on";
their larm reserves and still morej
heavily on their own strength. They,
took a gait which nobody , could
maintain for any length of time or
except under , the stimulus of a
pressing emergency. As a result, in
those two years they turned over a
great output. "
Last year 1819 the war being vic
toriously over and the patriotic duty
of selm-immolation removed, they
sought to take up their normal and
before-the-war gait. . Very; speedily i
they found it could not be done. '
'For their "normal work they re-I
quired a certain amount of help in
the form of hired labor. And any la
bor was, for most of them, as com
pletely out of reach as the moon. It
wasn't to be had for any wages which
any possible triumph of farm produc
tion could pay. So we doddering old
chaps had to untangle the kinks in
our aching old backs, spit On our
gnarled old hands .straighten up our
stiff old legs and do the best we
could with the old team. . Sometimes
we nad to beg the help of the old
lady to lead the horse or pull the
weeds, or drive the cows.
It was mighty hard sledding, all
'round, when- done without the spur
of urgent necessity. Nor was it emi
nently successful.
The production of all sorts' of
farm crops in my neighborhood was
less in 1919 that for .many previous
years. According to my informant
who has talked with scores of far
mers, big and little, in a dozen town
ships, it ia going to be still smaller
in 1920. For the reason that a great
many farmers have got to the end of
their" tether. They lack, themselves,
the physical strength and stamina to
keep on indefinitely doing two or
three men's work, and they cannot
hire help at any wages within their
possible incomes.
-My informant quoted " one ' farmer
as saviner. in r-ff ofi that Via .a
?''(' 00 invested in land, . stocks, tools.
etc.; mat ne worked last year from
thirteen to fifteen Jiours a day, six
days in the week, and at least six
hours every Sunday; and that, -nevertheless,
he wasn't able to earn as
much from his farm as the average
city shop worker gets for eight hours
work five days a week, four hours
work Saturday, no work Sunday and
no capital invested.
I am told of another, with a farm
of 1,500- acres, who has been trying
to produce milk for the city supply.
Last year he was able to harvest and
save less than a quarter of the hay
which was growing on the farm be
cause he couldn't get hands to attend
to it. The rest went to waste. He
has been cnmnelleri tn acii ref i

luiage, anu win now have to sell -the
rest or buy hay, a proceeding which,

Here is th answpp nn . i
. - - " . lucstj
farmers sent to the post office de
partment's questionnaire as to what
was the trouble with farming:
"The time is very near when we
farmers will have to curtail produc
tion and raise only what we need for
our own use and let the other fel
low3 look out- for themselves. Labor
unions are more to blame for the
high prices than any one else. People
are trying to get pay for what- they
don t earn."
In confirmation of this, I read that
the carpenters and plumbers in a
neighboring city are going to demand
tl an hour, next spring. There
doesn't seem to be any reason whv
they shouldn't Or why, the black
smiths and the coal-heavers and the
window-washers and lthe hod-carriers
and the ditch-diggera shouldn't
' demand"' the same, f Or why if
they shall get it, they mav not 'next
year "demand" J6 an hour, or ten
cents a minute, or any other figure in
the arithmetic. No farmer can com
pete for their labor on any such ba
sis, unless they, on their part, are
wiliiner -to nav him at iDt ,a
bushel for potatoes, $50 a barrel for
the wheat in their flour, 50 cents a
quart for milk, 2.50 a dozen for eggs,
and so on in like proportion. Even
such prices aa these are not compar
able in gouging greediness to some of
the wage demands formulated by
some unions. -
But, in justice to the unions, we
must not forget or overlook the fact
lhat the prime mover and active
forcer of high prices was the United
States government.
When some unforgiving ninny iri
high place at Washington started the
"cost plus" scheme during the war,
he started trouble which few living
men will ever see the end of.
What is the "cost plus" scheme?
you ask.
Why, it was the system a oted by
the government during the war in the
case of many of the largest industries
by which the government took their
product at actual cost of manufac
ture, plus an agreed on profit, -usually
of about ten per cent
Looks innocent enough, some one
will .say. Ye es, perhaps it does
to a blind man. But take note how
It "works in practice:
The profit accruing being a per
centage on the cost of manufacture,
It follows that the greater the cost of
manufacture . the larger the profit If,
for illustration, the necessary cost ,
of building a ship under shrewd and
economical management was $1,000,
800 then the profit, at ten per cent,
would be $100,000. But if, by buying
recklessly, by managing improvident?
ly, and, above all, -by padding pay
rolls, the cost of this same ship
should be adyanced to $2,Q00,000, then
the accruing profit, at the same per
centage, would be $200,000.
And that's exactly the cheerful
stunt at which "big business" in a
great many cases set itself to double-
its. own profit by doubling the j
book cost-of its product. , I
I have read that, in one big ship
yard, every man who applied ,- for
work 'was taken- on at almost any
rage he chose to ask, utterly regard
less of his value or of the need for
him. He might not ever have seen a
hipi he might not know a garboard
etrake from a capstan bar; he was
hired. Often he waa hired as an efc
pert ship-carpenter at an ' expert's
pay, though lie had never seen the
Inside of a shipyard before. It is said
that hundreds if not thousands of
such .men stood around in the yards
day after day, doing no work, asked
to- do no work, incapable of doing
useful work, Oust getting in each
others way and drawing their big
pay.
Yet the government not only stood
for that ort of thing, but appears
actively to have encouraged it. . The
result was not only a. veritable orgy
of money-wasting, it was the deveK
opment of a deplorably effective dev
il's normal school in the art of get
ting unearned" pay or profit. Not
only were those directly involved un
fitted for future usefulness at real
work, but the news of their "graft"
spread from Maine of Oregon and in
fected . hundreds of thousands ot
others.
Of course, the men who, week after
week, drew and - pocketed their un
earned or only partly earned pay
j were just as truly "profiteers" as the
ciinuycrs wot - ubcu mem to swell
their own Incomes. It won't whiten
eiwier one to nave tne pot call the
kettle black. But, human nature be
ing the rotted mixture that it admit
tedly is, what else waa to have been
expected?
Naturally, men who got $5 or $8 or
mu a oay . lor doing next to nothing,
are now and always will continue to
be hankering after more of Vafr same
pudding. . What appeal can farm
work, at farm wages, ' have for
them? Or for the millions of others
who.- havfjig heard of . it, want to
share in similar graft? And it all
started from that "cost plus" idea.
I don't know who the unspeaka
ble nincompoop was who adopted the
system on the government's behalf.
wnoever he-was, I sort o' feel as if
he ought to be compelled to work
eighteen hours a day for about
eighteen cents a week, the rest of his
life, trying to repair damages. Even
then, he wouldn't live long enough to
suffer an adequate punishment
In the meantime, there doesn't
seem any way out of it for -the ave
rage small New England farmer who
can't get essential help, but to nar
row the limits of his work to such
bounds as he can attend to with his
own labor, assisted by such tools u
his circumstances permit him to buy.
n mis reauces production and still
further boosts prices he. at leas.t
cannot justly be held responsible. ';
I do not know nor have I ever
heard of a single farmer who really
u restrict, production, nut a
farm can not be carried on without
labor. And if labor is not to be had
at wages which possible farm pro-
aucuen renaer feasible, then farm
production must diminish.
feuch an outcome means hardship
iur tne larmer as well a for every
body else. But the farmer can, after
all, stand it longer than most others.
That is a. reflection which ought to be
commended to the attention of labor
agitators.
In . climbing after the big apple at
the very top of the tall tree, it is ex
ceedingly poor judgment for the
climber to break out all the rounds
of the ladder below him, as he as
cends. '5 ,
He may want them, badly to climb
down on. ' - " ' :

"LATIN AMERICAN TRADE"
AND OUR PART THEREIN
The foreiem
American neigbors aggregated - nearly
or. quite $-5,000,000,000 in 1919 -against
slightly Jess than $3,000,000,000 in 1912
Their aggregate population ia nearlv
i,it,m,.anii tne area of the Latin
American countries 8,287,000 square
miles.
Latin American - trade during and
since the war period has shown great
er fluctuations, says a statement by
the National City Bask of New York;
than that of most other. parts of the
neutral world.. Prior to the war the
chief exnorta of tho ,,T,;An
. wv ....un ii n. nu
designated were eaifee, oocoa, friuts,
mum ruoDer, un, copper, nitrates,
wheat, meats, wool, arid sugar. The
war cut-off much of the European
markets for the coffee and cocoa and
fruits and rubber and tin, while on
the other hand it increased European
as well as American demands- for the
Other products, meats, - w-oel, sugar
copper, and nitrates. Aa a conse
quence, the grand total ' of exports
of Latin America made but very slow
growth during the first half of the
war period, and the imports during
that period actually declined. The
total exports of the 20 countries class
ed as Latin America were in 1913
$1,03,000,000; In 114 $1- 552,00,000
in 1915 $1,671,000,000; and in 1917
$1,838,000,000. Then in 1918, when
the ability of Argentina, Uruguay
southern Brazil, W Chile to supply
meats, wool, and nitrates became ful
Z r.e,COffnized' tne exports jumped to
$2,378,000,000. and. in the first year of
peace, 1919, the continued .demand for
meats and wool, coppled with the
great advance in prices of coffee and
sugar and -cocoa, brought the grand
total of Latin American exports up
to- nearly or quite .$3,080,800000 aa
against 41,600,000,000 in the year' pre
ceding the war.
Thus,( says the Bank's '. statement

The grand total of the international

thus advanced .from .about $3,000,000,

000,000 in 1919, the exports showing
an increase of nearly 100 percent in
stated value, and the imports and in

is proper to add that these increases
in the grand - total -of vataes are due
in a very considerable - degree to the
higher prices in 1919.
v The United States, saya the Bank's
statement, has fared generously at
the hands of her Latin American
neighbors' during this period. Prior
to .the war the Latin Americans yere,
as a great group, taking only about
23 percent of their total imports from
the United States, while in 1919 they
took from us, as nearly as can now
be estimated, 46 percent of their
greatly increased imports. Their ag
gregate imports advanced from $1,
400,000,000 in 1913 to about $2,000,
000,000 in 1919. . Our total exports to
Latin America -in the fiscal year 1914,
all of which preceded the war, were
$282,000,000, and in the , calendar year
1919, approximately $930,000,000. They
increased their imports, about $600,--000,000,
while our exports to them in
creased about $650,000,000 in the same
period.

ASSIGN SINISTER MOTIVES
TO LABOR LEADERS
Utica, N. Y., Feb. 12. Charges that
behind the announced plan ot the
American Federation of Labor to ob
tain the election of a congress and
a president favorable to its policies
existed a "sinister movement of - a
small coterie of labor leaders who
have grown powerful by the contribu
tions they have levied upon labor," to
set up a "government within a gov
ernment," were made here tonight by
United States Senator Miles C. Poin
dexter of Washington in an address
before the Utica Republican club.
"The farmers and laboring men of
America," he asserted, "have in every
crisis been the great ;bi!lwaik of our
free" institutions, and, the" will not
follow the mistaken leadership which
would place the government under the
despotic control of 'government within
the government.' "
There would be a lot more silence
in this world if we talked only afbout
the things we know.

age of Eheuma, the guaranteed 'pre
scription. Use the entire bottle, and if
you don't think it lias given you quick
and satisfying Telief, say so. and you

helps to force the uric acid from the
swollen joints and other lodging
placet. It should please you in a day

sin, bismuth, soda, charcoal, drugs and
various digestive aids, and you know
these things wiTl not cure your trouble
in some cases do not even give relief.
nut oeiore giving up hope and decid
ing you are a chroiic dyspeptic, just
try the effect of a little bisurated maer-
nesia not the ordinary commercial
carbonate, citrate, oxide or milk, but
the pure bisurated magnesia, which
you can obtain from practically anv
druggist in .either powdered or tablet
form.
Take a teaspoonful of the powder nr
two compressed tablets with a little
water after your next meal, and see
what a difference this makes. It will
instantly neutralize the dangerous,
harmful acid in t-he stomach which
now causes your food to ferment and
sour, maKing gas, wina, flatulence,
heartburn and the bloated or heavy,
lum-DV feeling that seems to fnllnw
most everything you eat.

a' little bisurated magnesia immediate
ly after a meal, you can eat almost
anything and enjoy it without any
danger of pain or discomfort to follow,
and moreover, the continued use of the
bism-atea magnesia cannot injure the
stomach in any way so long as there
are any symptoms of acid indigestion.
