Fourth St. SAYS FARMERS NEED BUSINESS METHODS (Continued from Page 1.) | the last legislature created the act | that established the state department of agriculture and delegated to that, department the enfocement of a great many statutes. "It is easy to pass laws but mighty difficult to enforce them. No law is important except as it is enforced. To give you a little insight into what we have done in food and bakery inspec tion, with only two inspectors and "myself in the division, in the past 10 months we have inspected 2,100 dif ! ferent establishments, condemned and confiscated 400,000 packages of food and conducted an 11 weeks' edu cational campaign at various fairs and food shows in large centers, edu cating consumers how to read labels and detect old and unfit food pro ducts. This work necessitated, be sides stage and auto travel, 18,000 miles of travel by rail, so with the time consumed in prosecuting num erous violations of the food laws and our efforts to enforce the statutes pertaining to drugs, feeds, fertilizers, etc., we have been kept reasonably , busy. ! "The governor is very desirous of making the state department of agri culture one of service in every branch and especially so to the farmers. To | show you his anxiety in that particu j lar, only a short time ago when he learned of the threatened plague from fire blight, he rode for several days among the orchards of Eastern Washington, arousing an interest and stimulating not only the horticultur al inspectors but every one concern ed, to put forth unflagging efforts to stop its ravages. In addition he caused extra men to be employed and ordered that every dollar that could be spared from the other divisions be used in the fight against the fire blight. "Stay With the Kami." " 'Back to the farm' is quite a pop ular slogan, but 'Stay with the farm' is the better," he continued, "and until we have devised some way of making farm life more profitable and attractive, both slogans will be bar ren of results. "I dislike very much to be consid ered a pessimist and would much pre fer being classed as an optimist, but I must admit that the question of rural depopulation and what it means to our fair country, at times submer ges my optimism. It is time that every lover of his country got down to hard facts and tried to solve the difficulty and then apply the remedy. I sometimes think that false Ideals THE WASHINGTON STANDARD, JUNE 26, 1914 are beiiit, Instilled In the minds of our eh *'!•<:•.i and the rising genera tions from a faulty public school sys tem. We find boys and girls inocu lated with the idea that it is dishon orable to work at many kinds of man ual labor and some disposed to turn up their noses at labor of any k'nd. Parents and teachers must set their faces against such demoralizing ten dencies and inculcate the idea that, there is nothing more hororable than to toil with hands and brain in every serviceable vocation that promises an honest and fair livelihood. "In the past farmers have not re ceived just and compensating retnr-i for the toil, risks and capital involv ed. No rices of peonle have vorked harder longer hours than have the farmers and as a result of such toil been able to accumulate as little for their old age and a period of rest. Their reward should have been greater and would have been, had they been properly informed and or ganized to protect their interests. "Our national and *state govern ments have become aware of the ser iousness of this situation and have been for some time bending their en ergies to make up for this lack of In terest in this fundamental and most necessary of all industries. "For many years I have taken an active Interest in business men's problems and In casting about for an explanation for the many failures among business men, I learned that many of their troubles arose from the fact that they did not know what it cost them to run their business. I believe, too, that the underlying cause of many farmers' difficulties Is the fact that very few of them know what It costs them to produce theli farm products. Association is What Counts. "We are living in an evolutionary period, 6,000 years after the dawn of history, a period in which men have finally mastered the dearly bought lesson of experience, the les son that there is strength in associa tion and organization. No matter if some people do rail against associa tion and organization, we are face to face with their existence and the quicker we adjust ourselves to that fact and endeavor to apply their help ful and eliminate their harmful ten dencies, the better it will be for all concerned. "Association in its broadest sense, is co-operation. Through its friend ly offices «it protects the weak from the vicious practices of the strong and the competent from the false standards set by the improvident and incompetent. In the realm of labor, in the domain of finances, in the myriads of the world's diversified in dustries, it is found that all those engaged in any one particular call ing have common interest to main tain, common objects to achieve, and common wrongs and abuses to recti fy. These things can only be accom plished through intelligent and unit ed action. It has been proved that farming can be put on as high, at tractive and profitable basis as any calling in the world, and with the ever-increasing necessity for which the farm produces, there is little or no danger that it will ever be over done. "Our live-stock division is preach ing better stock and the necessity for exercising extreme care in excluding diseased and securing healthy and properly certified animals. I believe there is opportunity for association ideas to help in that particular. If it is found that the price of some de sirable breed is beyond the reach of the individual purse, let several club together and make the start by pur chasing a male animal for service among the subscribers. Horses, cows, sheep and swine could be improved by such means. Experience has taught many of us that the higher the qual ity the better and more satisfactory the service and you will find this true not only as regards stock but prac tically everything the farm produces. Standardize Your Products. "Be careful In standardizing your products. The higher the value of your produce, the more Interest wil be taken in it. Care along this line will not only insure your own pride in your products but will insure a class of buyers that will make your business profitable." Book No. 1 of the Woods-Hutch- inson Health Series for the seventh and eighth grades, and book No. 2 of Davidson's Health Lessons, for the sixth grade, will be used in the Thurston county schools for the next five years, having been adopted at the last meeting of the county board of education. The board also recom mended two supplementary books for the lower grades—Clippinger's composition and rhetoric, and Gu lick's emergency for hygiene work. • * • • W. X.

The Standard WHIT HAPPENED IH OLVMPIIIND state Turn-fro iems neo From The Washington Standard (or June 25, 1804. Vol. IV. No. 38. The news of the nomination of Lincoln and Johnson was received with great enthusiasm by the interior settlements of California, Oregon, Washington and Idaho. The annual examination of classes at the University of Seattle will oc cur on Wednesday and Thursday, the 29th and 30th insts. The exercises will consist of original orations, dec lamations, compositions, poetical reci tations, and examination of classes in the several branches taught. The annual address, by John Denny, Esq., will be delivered on Wednesday even ing. One of the young ladies recently arrived from Massachusetts, of sev eral years' experience as a teacher, will probably have charge of the pri mary department the ensuing year. Everybody and family are invited to participate in the celebration of the Fourth of July at thi splace. Special invitations have been extended to people on the Sound and a general attendance is expected. i Former citizens of Washington now I living at San Francisco have organiz ed the Washington State society, a club having for its object the enter tainment of Washington people who visit the Panama Pacific exposition In 1915. This society will have charge iof the ground breaking ceremonies for the Washington state building, a contract for which was let by the ex position commission last week, • • • • I Approximately 2or 3 per cent is the loss in car load shipments that will be caused by the fire blight in jthe Yakima valley, is the estimate ! made by T. O. Morrison, assistant commissioner of the department of agriculture and E. H. Benson, in charge of the land department of the Northern Pacific railway, which would amount to practically 1120,000 in the Yakima valley alone. This es timate, however, does not include the loss done to real estate and orchard timber, which would make it consid erably higher. MAWSON WEDS GIRL WOOED BY WIRELESS Antarctic Explorer Has Had Many Thrilling Experiences. Melbourne.—Dr. Douglas Mawson. the antarctic explorer, who has Just re turned from a trip during which his two companions lost their lives and made his way back to the base after thirty uays of suffering In blizzards, was married to Miss Del prat daughter of a mine owner. The couple became engaged In 1911. when Miss Delprnt was nineteen years of age and before Dr. Mawson started DB. DOUGLAS MAW SON. on the last expedition. They exchanged love messages by wireless while the doctor w"s in the antarctic. The south pole was not Dr. Maw son's goal. He nimed at the explora tion of tlie vast coast line of the ant arctic which was discovered by the American. Captain Wilkes, seventy years ago and named after him. The party returned to Adelaide. Australia, nn Feb. 27 of this year. The scientific results of the expedition are said to be very valuable. Besides the mapping out of newly discovered lands, extraor dinary marine fauna were discovered at a depth of two miles and copper deposits and a vnst coal l>ed were also found. Dr. Mnwson was born at Brudford. England, in IXB2. He holds the posi tion of lecturer in geology In the Uni versity of Adelaide Wilson and His Policies. (Davenport Tribune.) Some may differ with President Wilson on his position on the canal tolls, and many do, but it is another demonstration of the calibre of the man, and proves that he is even big ger than his warmest sut^torters thought him. He could easily have dodged the issue and let the matter rested until after the election thla fall, "for the good of the party," rath er than antagonize leading Demo crats, but Wilson is not an issue dod ger, neither does he shirk a duty, and we believe the American people will, when they come to fully understand the situation, recognize in him a man big enough to look ahead and see conditions coming, and meet them squarely. It is not yet proven that he is wrong about the canal tolla, and we expect to see time prove hla policy right. Much is being said about his repudiating the plank ot the Baltimore platform regarding ca nal tolls, and he has been censured by both Republicans and Democrata who argue that the platform is big ger than the party, and right or wrong, the platform Should be car ried out. We don't believe in the creature being bigger than the crea tor. The Baltimore platform was made by the Democratic party, if the party then, or the recognized head of the party, sees that a mistake had been made in the platform, that party has the power to rectify Its mistake, and still remain a power. We believe in right being might, and we notice with a great deal of satisfaction that the old adherents in politics who be lieve that might is right are becom ing fewer all the time both in office and in party councils. Beginning July 6, members of the state tax commission will spend * month touring the state, taking tes timony in regard to land values, pre liminary to the regular annual ad justment of state taxes between the various counties. More time than usual will be devoted this year to tits work. At Seattle, Spokane and Taco ma two of the commissioners will alt together to take testimony while ia other counties testimony will be tak en by one commissioner. Some 400 people came up to Olym- pia from Seattle on an excursion Sun day. PAGE SEVEN.
