H eri.ocal correjpoodenee solicited from every ■action of the county. FRIDAY, DECEMBER S, ID 10 WATCHFUL WAHIHO. It ia a long, long tale how Eaatern farmera waited and worked and strug glad through the laat decade of the laat century and the firat decade of the pres ent one in hopea that their proper place in the industrial world would be recog nised and farming become a paying busineaa. Aa in many another such struggle, not a few fell by the wayside. Only the other day a farmer recalled bow in the summer of 1898 be sold wheat fur forty-six cent, per bushel, and a second told bow he hauled corn ten miles that fall for a dollar and forty cents. The toeing nature of this fight was apparent on all sides: mortgages ware foreclosed and titles to farms , passed to the mortgagees at bankrupt prices; standards of home living were lowered to a dspreselng degree, yet the farmer could not keep bis head above water; but probably the roost depressing feature waa to see how farms were so generally turned over to tenants while the hope of every community -its prom ising young manhood—sought occupa tion in more aluring occupations. It ia because of the pleasing contrast of today, along this latter line, that we ask readers to join in mutual eongratu lationa. A series of circumstances have united to give the fanner a chance to live and let live; and the result la that be has come into his own again,—and be shows it. Possibly no better object lesson could be cited than the meeting held here lest Friday for the promotion of one of our leading industries,— dairy ing on a scientific, profitable basis. It was a source of common comment that in appearance the fifty or more young farmers present would compare favor ably with any equal number of profes sional men who might be called to gether for a similar purpose; while in discussing the questions at iasue, clear ness of thought, logical ideas, and ease of delivery ware the role and not the exception. While the direct cause for this open ing of the door of hope to our young farmers is traced to the buoyant effect of fair returns for persistent efforts, the most valuable effect la to keep In our midst the beat manhood of a thrifty people. The man who is satisfied with nothing less than the best conditions under which to run a successful dairy, demands equally favorable conditions under which to run his home, his school, bis church, and bis community at large. We have every reason to hope and believe that these ideals have come Into the American home to atay, and that while our own consumers, Instead of Liverpool, will henceforth aet the price of wheat, our wheat-raisers will set the standards of life and living for American farmers. JAMES LEE. When the representative of a family la called hence, whose leaders from Col onial days have bean potent factors to wards moulding the civilisation of their community, it is wall that men should pause and consider the record he has left behind him. James Lee did not, like his grand father, help with his sword to carve an. American republic out of a British col ony, but in his own well-balanced life he typified, as the head of a Christian home and as a public-spirited citisen, the man whose good deeds are not In terred with his bones. Growing up at a period when schools were scattered and general education rare, his early learning was compara tively modest, but it was along those fundamental lines of scholarship which gave trend to his maturing manhood and shone out in his successful life. Clear of brain, modest of manner, straightforward of character, sound of judgment, prompted by a laudable am bition but absolutely devoid of duplicity in his dealings with his fellowmen, Mr. Lee soon became a strong force for good among those with whom he ming led, and steadily earned and received the increasing respect and regard of those who knew him. He entered upon the business of his life before scientific knowledge of agriculture was common, but through bis native instinct even aa a young man be saw better things ahead for the farmer, and was a most valuable factor towards making these dreams a reality in Harford. As a churchman bis fidelity waa un questioned, and as a friend his loyalty end helpfulness waa unbounded. Har ford is fortunate to have had such a son, and her citizens will long bold his life in grateful remembrance, HELP TO CELEBRATE A VICTORY. [The following open letter, which Mr. Harsh asks us to publish, speaks for itself and calls for but little comment We are very sure the enemy would be very willing to pay this deficit if the victors could transfer the Presidency to Hr. Hughes, and we are equally sure that such an offer would be spurned by the Democracy of the Country. Under these circumstances should not the beneficiaries—American citizens at large - pay for a victory so gloriously wonT Ed.] Democratic National Committee NKSOaUASTCSS NSW TOW* NOV. 28, ISIS.

We have expanded more than 8300,000 in excess of the amount that bad been contributed. We made a clean fight Not a dollar was wasted. It was a splendid victory for the people. We have no regrets.

Little Drops of Water Remember how it goe; ‘"Little drop, of water, little grains of sand, make the mighty ocean and the pleasant land.” It teaches the value of little things. Little savings, little dimes piled up until they become dollars, and dollars in turn saved until you have enough of them to buy a little of that “pleasant land.” There ie no better investment then land. Population continues to increase, but there ie no more land than there was a thousand years ago. Our bank will help you to save your dimes and dollars, and eventually show you where you can profitably invest them in land if you want it The Second National Bank BEL AIR, MO.
