What has done It? Development.
The newspapers of Michigan have
long been alive to the needs of the
state end that is—a definite and fixed
policy of publicity. Every western
state has Its state department devoted
to Immigration. a commissioner of
agriculture and a department devoted
to *the cause of the average farmer and
fruit-grower. Out there they do not
count taxes In pennies—they rather
compute profits in RESULTS. We
might as well admit It. Michigan has
been a laggard but the populaoe Is
waking up!
No one single agency has been more
pow'erful In this transformation—this
turning from the delusions and the
snares—than the Western Michigan

sionary of home enterprise. It has

floats on water, thus affording well
paid work for thousands of men and
women and they In turn create a con
stantly growing demand for every pro
duct of the soil, which cheap transpor
tation and ready communication brings
quickly to their doors. Burrounded by
great cities like Chicago, Milwaukee
etrolt and Toledo, the vegetable and
fruit grower, the poultry raiser, the
dairyman and the email farmer have
sn insatiable market for their pro

fresh vegetables, milk, butter, a ream,
eggs and fruits exceeds ths supply. If

primeval glory. Great forests of pine,
grand old auks, majestic maple*, whose
gigantic tops towering heavenward
were the only spires, and the red man
the only inhabitant. But those words
sre as true of tlue laud today as they
were the day they were written, and
will appeal with more force. For al
though the greed of man, together with
the advancing strides of civilization,
have swept sway the great forests, and
the red man has disappeared, and the
resounding of the pioneers' sxs Is
heard no more, yet the land has been
made a land of delight, for upon Its
surface have arisen beautiful hofPSS
and fauns that are a Joy to its people.
This ha* Indeed been a land of promise,
and of fulfillment. Cities, villages and
hamlets now dot this land, railroads
connect them with each other; the old
stage coach has been replaced by the
palace car. the buckboerd by the auto
mobile. Good roads are stretching out
to the farthermost farms, which In
early days, everywhere, are the one
thing desired by the pioneer. With the
lapse of years has come all sorts of
advantages as the result of the work
of our pioneers and the advancement
of the people, keeping step with tits
onward march of civilisation.
Soil that could produce great for
ests, must have the qualities that pro
duce great crops, and It Is a pleasing
thing to look back over the past and
not* how Michigan always responded
to demands, and always took Its place
In the front ranks, ss the result of the
labor and brain work expended by our
fathers When the nation depended
upon these now middle western states
for food, Michigan came to the front
as the greatest of the grain raising and
live stock producing states. When a
demand was made upon these same
states for the raw materials with which
to clothe her people warmly. Michi
gan’s wool product headed the list;
and right now, when the sugar pro
ducing nations of the world fail to pro
duce enough sugar to supply our de
mands. again this glorious peninsular
state steps to the front and heads the
list of all the states. And all of this
time Michigan has been furnishing
more lumber with which to build the
cities, villages and homes of the na
tion. than any other state, until r«-
cenUy. She furnishes more Iron for
the great steel factories, more copper
for the demands of commerce than any
other state with one exception. She
has sliver mines, end coal mines; pro
duces more salt than any other stats,
and the list might be stretched out In
definitely.
Michigan fruit Is famed the country
over. At one time her apples were
sought In London, England, in prefer
ence to those grown elsewhere, and no
other state can produce apples today
with the same delicious flavor. What
Is true of apples Is quite as true of
peaches. plums, pears and small
fruits, without Michigan’s output of
which the cities of Chicago, Detroit,
and even New York, would be sadly In
need
In the blood of this American people
there seems to be Implanted a tinge of
restlessness. The same spirit that In
duced our fathers to come .here and
make this wilderness bloom, causes our
young people to long for new lands,
new scenes and new homes; they too
have the pioneer spirit. But today the
western lands ere fer different from
the lands their fathers came to. Here
Mother Nature provides everything,
soil, climate, rains and snowa Out on
the arid lands, (the only ones left
now), much has to be supplied artifi
cially. Great dams have to be con
structed and waters carried long dis
tances to supply the moisture without
which there can be no farms or homes,
and this Is fraught with much expense
and much trouble and vexation of
spirit. The young people who go west
today to build for themselves e horns
end till the soil, must hevs great
strength end endurance, for It takes
both. In an unusual degree, to win et*o
ossb from those arid lands.
Thero are thousands of acres of good
Michlgae lend yet untllled. and thou
sands of acres more but partially
tilled. The young man who goes west
from Michigan, leaves diamonds In his
own dooryerd.
Here the farmer Is a prince. He has
his dally newspaper end dally mall de
livered -at his door. He has the tele
phone, which annihilates space, end In
stantly responds to a neighbor's oell
or puts him In communication with ths
man In the city to whom he has con
signed hts products for sale. He can
have electric lights, a water system
for hts house and his bams, and ths
steam and eleotrto roads take his pro
ducts to the markets while they are

freights do not eat up all of hts profits.

Reducing the Retailers
Many municipalities throughout the
land are establishing city markets
in an effort to do away with the or
dinary retailer and middleman, by
bringing producer and consumer face
to face. It means very largely that
the consumer pays cash and delivers
to himself what he buys and there Is
undoubtedly possibility of a reduction
in the cost of living thereby.
Rut to meet this movement retail
ers at several points in the far west,
particularly are revolutionizing their
business by going Into a cash basis,
doing away with their delivery rigs
and lowering their prices. They claim
that with such heavy drags as bad ac
counts and delivery expense cut oat,
they can sell at much lower prices
and still reach the old profits.
It Is very likely that this experiment
of the retailers will tend to reduce
tbs high cost of living In many In
stances. The credit system and the
telephone have had a whole lot to
do with boosting household bills.
Many a housewife gets things she
wouldn’t get If she did not have credit
at the store, and It Is so easy to run
to the telephone and order things that
one would get along without If one
had to go after them and then carry
them home.

The Complete Life
It Is aald of Dr. Pearson, the Chi
cago millionaire who hua just died,
after giving away bin fortune, that bla
was the complete life. He had the
Joy of the lighter for great wealth,
and at 80 years of age enjoyed the dis
tribution of his $7,000,000 In way* that
seemed to him to promise the most
good.
Old Robin Hood must have enjoyed
the complete life, too. According to
the tale, Robin Hood, backed up by
his merry men, would put the point of
his crossbow up against the nose of
the innocent traveler, appropriate his
mcney, although already possessing
more money than the law aaul high
sheriff would let him spend, and later
on distribute the traveler’s property
in ways that seemed to him U> prom
ise the most good.
