In the most recent report of "Sugar

For the ten years closing 1920 the
value of all farm property in the
United States Increased $36,935,000,000
or more than 90 per cent. The 1910
figure was $40,991,000,000, compared
to the 1920 valuation of $77,926,000,000.
We would like to know how In hen

asks Sugarman's Indicator. The value
of farm buildings alone jumped from
$6,000,000,000 In 1910 to $11,000,000,000
! lu 1920. Value of implements and ma
chlnery in 1920 amounted to $3,595,

In 1910. Live stock on the farms was
valued at dose to $8,000,000,000 in 1920
bb compared with $4,935,000,000 In

Uncle Johns Poem
There's a little old church at the i
forks of the road,—a landmark, dis- i
mantled and grey . . . where once :
the warm fires of humanity glowed, I
there's a column of ashes—today. \
Yes, an old couuntry church, where !
the ravage of Time Its plan of destruc- I
tlon pursues. . . . Where the pul- |
pit, deserted, pathetic, sublime, looks J
down on the worm-eaten pews.
. . . And, the old congregation :
lies, sleeping serene, where the spread !
of "God's Acre'' enthralls. . . J
They hear not roar of Humanity's tide, 1
nor the plaint when the whippoorwill i
calls. . . . Thus, the little old |
church, at the forks of the road, divine
ly yet mutely holds sway—till Time
with his sickle, and Tide with his
goad, shal have swept her last frag
ment away. . . .
This house was the Mecca of sinner
and saint, in the halcoyn days of her
youth. . . . From her Holy of
Holies to vestibule quaint, they quaffed
at the Fountain of Truth—but the
spire in the City hath crowned in its
might, a greater and grander abode—
till, only the Angels may pause in their
flight, o'er the church at the forks of
the road.
