, THE MEDINA SENTINEL, - THURSDAY, NOV. 26, 1914.
Marketing is I J Great Problem ; The economic distribution ' of ' farm -products Is today the world's greatest (Problem and the war, while it has (brought Its hardships, has clearly em jphaBized the importance of distrlbu Ition as a factor In American agricul iture and promises to give the farin ers the co-operation of the govern ment and the business men , the solution of their marketing problem. This result will, in a measure, com pensate us for our war losses, for the business interests and government have been in the main assisting al most exclusively on the production iside of agriculture. While the depart ment of agriculture has been dumping tons of literature on the farmer telling ihlm how .to produce, the farmer has 'been dumping tons of products in the Ration's garbage can for want of a market , The World Will Never Starve. At no time since Adam and Eve were driven from the Garden of Eden jhave the Inhabitants of this world suffered from lack of production, but some people have gone hungry from the day of creation to this good hour for the lack of proper distribution. Slight variations in production have forced a change in diet and one local ity has felt the pinch of want, while (another surfeited, but the world as a whole has ever been a land of plenty. We now have less than one-tenth of the tillable land of the earth's surface tinder cultivation, and we not only have thiB surplus area to draw on but it is safe to estimate that in case of dire necessity one-half the earth's population could at the present time knock their living out of the trees of the forest, gather it from wild vines and draw it from streams. No one should become alarmed; the world will never starve. The consumer has always feared that the producer would not supply him and his fright has found expres sion on the statute books of our states and nations and the farmer has been urged to produce recklessly and with out reference to a market, and regard less of the demands of the consumer. Back to the Soil. . The city people have been urging each other to move back to the farm, but very few of them have moved. We welcome 'our city cousins back to the soil and this earth's surface con tains 16,092,160,000 Idle acres of till able land where they can make a living , by ; tickling the earth with a forked stick, but we do not need them so far as increasing production is con cerned; we now have all the producers we can use. The city man has very erroneous ideas of agricultural condi tions. The commonly accepted theory that we are .short on production is all wrong. Our annual increase in pro duction far exceeds that of our in .'Crease in population. . . ' ' The World as a Farm. : Taking the world as one big farm, we find two billion acres of land in cultivation. Of this amount there is approximately 750,000,000 acres on the western and 1,260,000.000 acres on tte eastern hemisphere, in cultivation. This estimate, of course, does not in clude, grazing lands, forests, etc., where large quantities of meat are produced. The world's annual crop approxi mates fifteen billion bushels of ce reals, thirteen billion pounds of fibre and sixty-five million tons of meat. The average annual world crop for the past five years, compared with the previous five years, is as follows: Past Half Previous Half Crops Decade. Decade. Corn Bu.) 3,934,174.000 3.403.655,000 Wheat(Bu ) 3,522,769,000 3,257,526,000 Oats (Bu.) 4,120,017,000 3.508,315,000 Cotton (Bales) 19,863,800 17,541,200 The world shows an average in crease in cereal production of 13 per cent during the past decade, compared with the previous five years, while the world's population shows an increase of only' three per cent The gain in production far exceeds that of our increase in population, and it is safe to estimate that the farmer can easily increase production 25 per cent if a remunerative market can be found for the products. In textile .fibres the world shows an Increase during the past half decade in produc tion of 15 per cent against a popula tion increase of three per cent. The people of this nation should .address themselves to the subject of .improved facilities for distribution. Over-production and crop mortgage .force the farmers into ruinous com petition with each other. The remedy lies in organization and in co-opera tion in marketing. MAY RECOUNT BALLOTS There is great interest all over . the state in the decision of the Supreme Court expected next week on the ques tion of the re-count of the votes cast on the Home Rule' and Prohibition amendments in the four large cities of the state. The whole question hinges on whether the Secretary of State can' act on implied authority. The law provides for holding ballots for 30 days for a re-count to correct errors, but is somewhat vague in pro viding 'for the actual re-count If the court refuses a recount because of this lack of direct legislation, the Gen eral Assembly will be asked for a law necessary to make a re-count possi b'e and to prevent a repetition of cor ruption and fraud of which there is much in evidence in Cincinnati and other places.

When this tube Is en flamed you hae' a rumbling- sound or imperfect hearing-, and when it Is en tirely closed, Deafnsess Is the result, and unless the inflamation can be tak en out and this tube restored to Its normal condition, hearing will be dee-, troyed forever; nine cases out of fen are caused by Catarrh, which is noth ing; but an Inflamed condition of the mucous surfaces.
