newly-accumulated wealth that is to
come to us from across the seas.
Tremendous crops are reported, the
government estimating corn at 2,676,
000,000 bushels, wheat at 802,000,000,
oats at 1,187,000,000 bushels, and
other crops in proportion.
When the great surplus of this crop
is marketed in Europe at war prices
it will pour so much wealth into the
pockets of the farmers that our
country will be flooded with gold,
and the liberality of the farmer in his
own prosperity will radiate to all
branches of trade.
Patience is the watchword today,

Let's Stop and Think.
If we stop and think we can readily
see that the community that pulls
together will do more and accomplish
better results than the one that is
always divided.
By working together and producing
the greatest amount of marketable
products, and marketing them to the
best advantage and at the least
expense, we will have greater profits
in the community than we would
otherwise receive.
And by buying our goods from our
local merchants and from one another
instead of sending away for them we
are constantly increasing the wealth
of the community and the resultant
prosperity of each individual.
When much money comes into the
community and only a portion of it
goes out again the surplus at home
will grow, and grow, and grow, until
it becomes a veritable Eden of wealth.
Let's do a little thinking,
That "Nigger in the Woodpile."
The Valley County News which
professes itself to be a noni-partisan
newspaper and yet vigorously sup
ports the Bull-Moosers, let out a long
loud wail in its last issue over the
defeat of its pet candidates. Among
its wails, the News wants to know
why Dr. G. W. Clay polled so much
heavier i a vote than did other candi
dates in this section. That's easy.
Because ii all business and public
deals of every description, Clay has
always proven that he is scripulously
honest, and that the people will get
a strictly square from him. Further
more, he always keeps his promises,
which can not be said of most candi
dates for oflice. Bull-Moose platforms
have proven to be fine things to orate
from, but after election the planks
are usually split into kindling to
burn up pre-election pledges: The
News also comes along with the
piratical suggestion that many of the
votes coming from the vicinity of
Malta should be thrown out, as they
charge-without attempting to bring
proof-that the election returns from
outlying districts were tampered
with. Evidently the Sherlock Holmes
of the News has deducted a mystery
from his fevered imagination that
will explain the Bull-moosers' defeat.
These are grave charges to bring
against election officials, and without
proof, they look mighty thin. Trying
to discredit appointees for public
othice by throwing mud after election
because their own favorites fell by
the wayside should merit very little
attention from fair-minded people.

by our own peace and self control in
some degree to steady the conselsand

day of fear and distress. Our people
have looked upon their own life as a
nation with deeper comprehension, a
fuller realization of their responsi

practical significance of what their
part among the nations of the world
may come to be.

clearly their mutual interdependence
