Th« following address was delivered
by T. Twichell, the well known Maple ton farmer, during the Tri-State con vention. The aim and object of living is to live In some comfort (both we and ours), pay our just dues, give the world a little more than good measure, and provide for our children an 'easier lad der to climb than we have climbed, (if we have climbed at all), or provide them with some means, method or fit ness for discovering the ladders of op portunity, that we may have overlook ed, or better, longer, stronger hooks to hang on with. It is to the considera tion of these things that ordinarily sane and sensible men and women cen ter their energy and efforts. MARKETING FARM PRODUCTS AND THE PRICES RECEIVED That the world owes any one a living is the most vicious rot. That it owes every person an opportunity is certain. Any artificial barrier, whether it be business practice, legal, religious, ethi cal, political of economicttl, that stands or is erected as a hindrance or obstacle, between any person and a clear field for fair opportunity, is an offence against that person. If such obstruc tion is created by government, either local, state or national, such govern ment of, for and bv the people, but a government of favoratism. If such ob stacle is created by business, as prac ticed, or laws enacted, the blame lies with the public, that tolerates either bad laws or bad business. Obstruc tions or oppressions of this nature must naturally rest against classes— not individuals, in a nation of 100,000, 000 people. If the hand of op pression or the hurdle of obstruction be in the way of a small class, we can give them little hope but much pity. If placed between, say 154.000,000 of our people and fair opportunity, and they continue to tolerate it, we should give no pity, but cry shame on you. Under our form of government 34,000,000 peo ple can remove and destroy any bar rier crcated by practice, precedent or statute. Failure of correction must come either from ignorance, indiffer ence or impotency or possibly all three. O.ur system of government is, and always has been the greatest political experiment of all time. Our country is like none other. We have greater and more varied interests and pursuits. We are made up of people of all sorts of beliefs and temperaments: people of all nationalities, used to all sorts of governments. People of all trades and vocations. Our people range from the most high minded to the lowest crim inal from, those over-burdened with riches to those shrunk in abject pover ty from the tory to the socialist: from the philanthropist to the destructionist. Such a people must be governed loose ly, but ought to governed firmly, and we must govern ourselves. Our government, in governing through laws created, always has, and probably always will, listened respect fully to location and vocation. This means that under a democratic form of government, that those locations and those lines of business, that in wisdom send the most able pleaders for such places, and such lines of business have the greatest protection against oppres sion or obstruction, and the greatest opportunity to help in having the scales of justice and opportunity tip—always either little or much in their favor. To me it seems plain that it behooves this 34,000,000 people to get busy, and see that at the time and at the place when opportunities are made, that their spe cial leaders of location or vocation are present at the balancing of the scales. Thirty-four per cent of our people, if not ignorant, indifferent, or impotent, can see that this great, and in the main good government, does not tip the scales against them. If they fall to at tend to this, who but themselves are to blame? Shakespeare says "are we not all honorable men." Possibly t.ue, but in light of both the past and the present would it not have been the part of wisdom, to have thought a little alony the lines "are we not all selfish men." Do we not know that the same strug gle for advantage—tn government and In personal endeavor, is, and must continue? The spirit of war, and the genious of generalship permeate and adjust our differences between loca tion and vocation. Few, if any of the trophies of war are given to those that do not participate in the battles. Those that stay at home are allowed to pay the money cost, the pensions and do homage to those that were at the front. Who, you aslc, is this class of 34 per cent, of our population who through ignorance, indifference or iropotency, has allowed this govern ment intentionally or unintentionally, to place an obstruction to their well doing, (either of practice precedent or statute.) in the way of their ad vancement? Who is this great sha.re of our people who have neglected to have their share of special repre sentations present when the scales of equal opportunity have been tested and balanced? At the time (when congress and state legislatures meet) at the place (Washington or state cap itals) where and when fair opportun ity is measured, or when certain lines t)f business are made too profitable— too improfltable, or equal opportunity given. You don't need me to answer the question: you all know It—you and I, the American farmer, his wife and little ones. Who is it that has few or none of the trophies of war? The farmer. Why? He had few if any of the fight ers engaged in the battles and none of the officers- So the other fellows divided the loot, the cannon, the hand pieces, the color standards. Each taking according to his strength or his quickness. True, we pay more than one half the expense, but we made the mistake of not sendrbg more soldiers who would have known which would have pleased us most, and served us best, a cannon, a hand piece or a color standard. We found out (many, many times) that those we sent were not farmer THIS WILL STOP YOUR COUGH IN A HURRY Save $2 by Making This Cough Syrup at Homt. .This recipe makes a pint of bettet cough syrup than you could buy ready mflide for $2.50. A few doses usually conquer the most obstinate cough stops even whooping cough quickly. Simple as it is, no better remedy can be had at any price. .Mix one pint of granulated sugar with pint of warm water, and stir for 2 minutes. Put 2% ounces of Pinex (fifty cents' worth) in a pint bottle then add the Sugar Syrup. It has a pleasant taste and lasts a family a long time. Take a teaspoonful every one, two or three hours. Ton can feel this take hold of a cough in a way that means business. Has a good tonic effect, braces up the appetite, and is slightly laxative, too, which is helpful. A handy remedy for hoarseness, croup, bronchitis, asthma and all throat and lung troubles. The effect of pine on the membranes is, well known. Pinex is the most valu able concentrated compound of Norwe gian white pine extract, and is rich in guaiacol and all the natural healing pine elements. Other preparations will not work in this formula. This Pinex and Sugar Syrup recipe has attained great popularity through out the United States and Canada. It has often been imitated, though never successfully. ~A guaranty of absolute satisfaction ofmoney promptly refunded, goes with tills recipe. Tour druggist has Pinex, o'f&wlll get it for you. If not send to. ,, soldiers at all—only near farmer*, tit least once removed. They really rep resented some other place or some other place or some otjier l^ne of busi ness than ours. You see each soldier was in duty bound to take back some thing of value, to the location or vocation whose special champion he really was. It takes fight and might to get what belongs to you from a republic. Its |g being right is no disadvantage, but seems unimportant. There are generally two sides to f|§ every question. No great injustice is JfJ, done any considerable class of people if they are watchfull, vigilant and w keep alive to the tendencies of both action and thought, and do not con- Jp elude that because a thing is, it ought to be, or because of its long contlnu ance, it is right. A thing that was good may become bad. A thing need ed at on© time become an abuse at an O other. A well Intended thing may be- '$S conio visclous. Or a really good thing £#|. may become objectionable through the inherent weakness of the people it affects or are affected by It. Laws must change with the change of conditions. Governmental policies and business practices ought to notice the'se changes and 'be so adjusted as to meet the new conditions abuses gS when discovered, should be stopped, gfc altered or destroyed. To illustrate, |§t We are a young state, with ample of everything, but people and capital. To invite either money or men we must fp have a story telling of our advantages, Such a story carries more weight if it ||p is an official utterance. So our state, ||p like some others, interests the asses sor to ask you and I how many acres we farmed the past year. How much grain we raised and how much we paid for labor. Certainly reasonable and purposeful questions. Are you sure the answers given do you any good? It's the stale's business to serve the people living here not some one living elsewhere. Unfortunately, in answering these questions, the personal equasion comes in. Each assessor asks his neighbor and his neighbor's neighbor. Americans, as a people, are boastful. The pessimist is in the small majority. All of us like to do, or appear to do, as well as our neighbor and to be as big a fellow. So we report that we have farmed as many acres as is possible to report, according to the list of lands the assessor has. Some times we put in lands we rent, that may get in twice. Keeping in mind that we must uphold the good standing of the community, and as evidence that we are good farm ers, we report more bushels than rais ed, and to show that we are good bus iness men we place our labor cost less than it was. We never allow ourselves to create the impression that any crop costs more than it came to, except the unfortunate pessimist, and there are not many of them. Does this well In tended law fail because of an inherent weakness in us? and does it matter? Yes: It tells the grain speculator, the importer, the miller and the consumer that we cropped more acres than we really did. that we raised more stuff than we really did, and we did it for less than the actual cost. When the new crop starts, because we feel we should be a booster, (it's pleasanter to boost than to knock), wanting to show our loyalty, continue to report, until undiguised and un questionable calamity overtakes us, that we have the largest acreage and the finest prospects since I came to the state—we all use the same expres sion. We individually and collectively ad mit, and almost guarantee, that our re spective farms and localities are each year going to have the largest crop we ever raised. First result. The actual owner of grain offers his for sale. The speculative seller takes our word for it and sells more actively and agressive ly, as we swell our chorus of great crops, and thereby helps insure a profit for himself through a lowering of prices. The buyer looks for lower prices and waits. Result two. Barring calamity we do have lower prices. Final result to us. In the fall we re new again the paper that in June we were sure we could pay, when we threshed. The mortage still sticks. We have surely boosted, but have we been loyal to ourselves, our neighbors or our class? Were you and I using good business sense when the friendly and loyal boosting editor, to flatter us and boast the community, and to show his heart was right, published in tly, as our opinion, that our crop wui jod for forty bushels, and if we were not self ish and narrow gauged, we said our neighbor's crop was as good as our own or later, when he published that our crop averaged forty-seven bushels when in fact it averaged twenty-one bushels? Possibly you did have two acres of potato ground that yielded thirty-seven bushels, and you added ten to make yourself good, to boost your community, and because you are a loyal boastful, boosting American citizen and you had a perfect right to lie about your own crop as it was no one's business to know the real facta Does this boosting do any harm? Yes: Your statement was copied by othei boosting editors and by some papers who seek to serve the consumer or are friendly to the buying interests or in terested in the very laudable effort to reduce the cost of living. It was copied and recopied in the crop news items oi commission houses, and read and re read by the short seller gambler, whe sold and resold your wheat and mint when it was growing, because we wer« again going to have our very largesi crop. It was read by the miller, tht importer, the handler of cash grain ir European countries. Would it tenc to make them anxious to buy at once' It's the present bid that makes th( market value. Or does the merchant do himself or you any good when he passes on your report to him to the wholesaler, of whom he is asking cred it that he may extend more credit to you and I? Or, does it do any good to any of us who have our local banker repeat and confirm our claim and esti mates to the banker who discounts his paper so as to get more money to loan you and I? Isn't it really worse than foolish to overstate either our real or prospective crop? Isn't there some nlace to stand between being a con firmed pessimist and a busyness fool?

The finan Is our state law for gathering farm and crop statistics for the purposing of advertising our state, bringing us more people and capital and if it is, is it costing us too much? If we can't tell the truth to the assessor let's abolish the law in Belf defense. Some other states gather the same statistics, but like us, they also lie, so we only keep our relative position LJke us they are advertisers. And so the several states get their figures primarily for advertising pur poses and our good government to prove we are the greatest people on earth, and this the grandest country, gather together these statistics, sup plemented by estimates of boards of trade or their agents, speculative firms, railroads, millers, grain handl ers, elevator companies, reports of farmers, merchants, bankers and business men are publish to our cus tomers the world) each month, that we are probably going to raise more than plenty of everything. That we won't have any earthly use for ever so many million bushels of wheat, oats and corn.

And up go interests rates. On December 1st, after the guesses are all in, after you and I and the butcher, and the baker, and the candlestick maker, have told how more thaji pleased we are with our more than plenty, after the states have registered their advertising guess after the agricultural depart ment has made the last guess, the government officially notifies the world that the child is born and It's a, whale. The biggest whale we ever caught. And ITnele Jim Wilson prob ably issues a special repoTt and states officially that the child is so unusual ly tall and strong (it measures always lately about 9 billion something) that we can't use it at ail in our business or store it in our cooling rooms, and invites anyone desiring any of the choicer cuts to come and get it at their own price but they needn't hurry. Strange isn't it that prices of gTain products generally go down from Jun© to January, or later. Find out how many other exporting countries publish officially at the pub lic's expense such elaborate and com plete reports as we publish. Imagine the steel trust advertising that they were thinking of investing their out put above consumptive needs, and later officially giving notice that they had done so. Would you expect them to get a profit out of such a transaction? You can't imagine any such fool thing Why? Because they are a business concern, doing business on business lines: and our government isn't fol lowing business lines when it gathers together and gives out our crop statis tics. Generally, when some one is injured in business, someone else is the gain er and this Is no exception.

He knows that they do not have to be correct if they are generally believed. It looks like a good gamble to him. He knows that the financial journals will help him, the miller, the importer, the rail road, the handler of cash grain, that foreign trade journals will re-echo the big crop news, and that the foreign purchaser will wait. He knows that all lie needs is to have the purchaser wait. Waiting means lower prices. As prices go lower the need for the farm er becomes more urgent to sell, and sell more. He knows that under our system of marketing the elevator com panies will be forced to deliver as fast as it is possiblte. He knows that the farmers must. have their money, that they will get scared and sell. He knows that those who have small crops will believe that others have tremendous ones because everybody says so. and he, the farmer, accepts it as a fact, and probably to keep up his courage, romances a little about his own crop. When the mist begins to clear away, "he that works not, neither does he spin," will take a well earned vacation, while we prepare for another crop that he hopes to, and will exploit another year.

A thing that once served a good purpose may become bad. Supply and demand should govern values. If they don't there is something either in law or business practice, that does govern, exactness, as to what flour would cost him at some future time, so as to sell it profitably to some customer who wanted to buy at a fixed pricc for future delivery. The miller does net have the wheat on hand and does not want to have to stJ.-e and pay for it until he needed it to grind, to fill this order. Where there is a real need we generally find a means. So the mar ket for dealing in futures was estab lished. Now this man-created method has over-topped and superseded the fundamental law of supply and de mand. Now, the price of our grain is not measured by its cost, our need or the world's need by a gambling game. As well and fairly could you and I regulate grain values by a game of "seven up" if I win I put it up if you win you put it down. Bnv'ron ment and inmate selfishness tend to make two general and natural divi sion of the players. The producer is generally a bull the consumer is gen erally a bear. Generally, the bull is in the country, acting out his part as an individual. The bear is on. the Board of Trade or in the brokers of fice, working somewhat in unison with his fellow workers.

Because one extreme is apt to, or does follow another, does not prove that it evens things up for the producer. The producer may get th^ worst of it. Taking the high land low price for Chicago cash wheat on each crop for the past 44 years, I find that the aver age low price is 69 3-4 cents. I find the average high price between the high and the low price of cash wheat on each of the 44 crops of 27.7 cents per bushel. If speculation had anything to do with causing this great difference' in value the same crops if specula tion has helped to make the value low when the American farmer would naturally deliver and sell his wheat and if this range of too low prices artificially created, was corrected, as it would be, and a range of higher prices prevailed during that part of the crop year when the producer had sold his grain, and someone else own ed it, then it might be fair to pre sume that speculation had hurt the producer. Divide the same forty-four years—each year—into two periods of six months each,—July to January, during which time the great bulk of qur crops are marketed, and January to July, when farm stocks are at ii minimum, and grain on hand very largely belongs to. other than the pro ducer.
