I I Twelve months ago most of the six million farmers of the United States were starting on the long hard climb out of the valley of economic depres sion. Thev have not yet attained the i heights which are bathed in the grate ful suniijne of prosperity. Some, in deed, have fallen by the way. Others are still in the valley. Nevertheless, as we stop a bit and leak backward we can see that very considerable ground nas been gained by the great majority, and we can enter tae New Year with renewed hope and with that courage which comes from the realization that we are really making progress. A year ago. when speaking of the prospects for farming in 1922, I sab; that while there was no reason to ex pect boom times for the tarnter ir. the near future, there was proniis-. of better times, both for the farmer and for those whose business is large ly depenuent upon him. ihe year has brought fulfillment of that promise. Speaking generally, times arc betu. much better, than a year ago, botu for agriculture and for industry. Crops have been good, on the whole Prices of the major crops are mostly considerably higher. While there been a corresponding advap.ee in the ! prices of the things the farmer unis, buy, the total sum which farmers will receive for the crops of this year is greater by a billion and a half dol lars or more than that which they received for the crops of last year. This will certainly mean better timg.- ou the farm, and farm folks will li able' to ease up a little on the grind ing economy they were forced to prac tice the proceeding year. The labor cost of producing tiu crops of l'J£2 was still further re duced. There-, were some substantia in freight rates. Much helpful Icgis lation has been enacted and more v. i! be this winter: Interest rates are low er and the crets strain has been ea ed. This has it possible for many farmers who were rather hear iiy involved to refund their cob tions and get themselves in condition to win through. There are stil! some dark spots. In some sections weather conditions were unfavorable and crops were short, and farmers in these sections are having a very hard time of it. Freight rates are still too high, es pecially for those who must pay for u long haul to market. Taxes are high, but this is largely ■—l II ■■—Hill TIII i ICT- I I I I in nil ——a ■ ■ WANTED.
