FEAR OF LESS FOOD PRO DUCTION IS NEED FOR BUILDING GOOD ROADS. Laban Phelps, president of the To bacco Growers' and Dealers' Protec tive Association, presided at the meet ing yesterday. Louisville Herald. BREAKING A COLT IN VERMONT. Daniel L. Cady, in Burlington Free Press. In view of the need that our food production shall be kept up to Max imum there is no room to question the importance of the use of a labor saving device indicated by the fore going figures. Whoever believes that agriculture got along without tractors for a good many years and can get along without them for a while longer may profitably consider the farm labor situation in this country, which is so serious today that the Depart ment of Agriculture warns of an im pending decrease in food production. The movement of workers from farms to the cities, it says, is more pro nounced than in the early days of the war. The number of hired men in New York State decreased 17 per cent last year. Talk of a mammouth union of farm laborers is bandied a bout, and wages increassed by 15 to 18 oer cent during 1919, making them 80 per cent higher than before the war, while the Department estimates that another 15 per cent increase will be recorded in 1920. At the same time the cost of farm equipment and sup plies has gone up. Wage increases have not been out of proportion to the rise in value of farm products, but the shortage of workers is another question entirely. Says tfie Department: Numerous letters from field workers or farmers indicate a widespread dis position to cut down planting so that the work of cultivating can be at tended to by the farmer himself or by members of his family Labor saving devices and scienti fically intensified production give the only answer. The great progress that civilization has made in rendering the land subservient to the needs of man have received tremendous accelera tion from machines and scientific dis coveries in the past and every en couragement must be given to experi ment and research in the present.

Nearly one-third of the people of the United States, or more than 30, 000,030, live on farms. Nearly 20,000, 000 more live in communities having a population of less than 2,500. In other words, nearly one-half of the population of this country is to be found on farms or in country dis tricts In 1910 the value of all farm property was approximately $41,000, O0O.C0O or more than the capital of ill 1i run mtfn fiitrinrr octn lilt c lini on tc uat m- uiuiiuiuktMiMi(, vfliMuiuimiviiw, . , - . , . railways, mines, and quarries in the ,c prevention oi crueuy io anmiuis.

A famous English nobleman attempted to obtain a law and was made so much fun of that he backed out and gave up in despair. Then there came into the House of Commons from Galway, on the west coast of Ireland, Dick Martin, who was noted far two things: First, he was very fond of animals and second, he was very fond of fighting every body whom he thought had insulted him on that point he had a well es tablished reputation. bo one day he brought a bill for ever since. A matinee performance of a popular play was given at Pittsburg before an audience consisting of only 'a motion-picture operator and a man in charge of a recording phonograph, to get records for the manager who lias secured the rights to produce the play in Australia. A thousand feet of barbed wire were stolen from an Ohio farmer's new fence over night. He finished stapling the wire one afternoon and the next morning found the posts as bare as when he began the job.

The news has been published throughout the State coming from j Frankfort, that there is likely to be an extra session of the Legislature to provide means to carry into effect the road program, as laid out in the Moss road measure, providing for .'1,450 miles of State Highways. There should be no extra session of the Legislature. It is an expensive luxury. Kentucky can do without. It is not consistent with Gov. Morrow's promises of economy. If, the money necessary to carry out the big road plan can be raised without an ad valorem tax it can be done at this session of the Legislature, and it should he done. Because this Legis lature has frittered away half of its time in vacations or recesses is no justification to put a burden of tax ation upon the people to pay for an extra session uur salons ought not tp he rewarded for the waste of time by giving them more pay, and that J is what an extra session means.

AN UNNAMED STATION It was late afternoon, at the hour when business men and belated shop pers as well as tlje motley'crowd of toilers seek their homes, and the suburban car was filled to its utmost capacity. Sitting' sidp by side in one corner were a stout,' overdressed wo man and a very little boy. The woman had so often endeavored to obey the harassed conductor's adjuration to "sit close" that her voluminous skirts quite overspread the" child's dangling legs and feet, leaving visible little more than a small, patient face set around by a fringe of copped yellow curls and lighted by a pair of large, serious blue eyes. One could but wonder that the woman seemed to give him no attention. He must have been tired with the lonp- noisv ride Why did she not take him on her lap and cushion his head upon her ample snotuuerr singly or in groups the passeng ers began to leave the car at the vandus street crossings, until there was left, besides the woman and child, only a young woman in black, with a beautiful sad face. At length the stout woman pressed the signal but ton, and the car came to a stop. Half way to the door, she heard the con ductor calling after her: "Lady, yoii- ve torgottcn your hoy. "My boy I What 'chcr mean? I've got no boy!" The man stared. "Whose is he, then? He's been on along with you ever since we left the car barn. Looks to me as if you meant to shake him." "Mel Shake him I" The woman choked with indignation. "I never saw the kid before in my lifel" Still incredulous, the conductor ad dressed the child: "Ain't she your mother?" "O no, sirl" The clear little voice sounded as "pipes o' Pan." "Mamma's gone to heaven. That's where I'm going to find her. Here's my penny. I tried to give it to you, but you did n't see. Will you please tell me when we get there?" ' The man gazed about him helpless ly. "What d'ye know about that?" he muttered. Then, with a queer catch m his throat: "I'm sorry, kiddie, but heaven is not on our line." There was a rustle of garmentSj a soft breathless rush, and the woman in black had the child in her arms. "Tell me all about it, darling. What is your name, and where do you live?" "My name used to be Dickie, but it's Fifty-Seven now. and I live at the asylum.' A man took me there after my mama went away. Xhere are lots of little boys and girls, but no marnmaft there. Nobody kisses the good-night and tucks tne up in bed or hears mc say my prayers. Have yVnt ever been to heaven, lady, and is it far away?" "I have never been there myself, dear, but I had a little lioy who went. I know you could never find it alone." "That s what my mamma said to wait. But I'm so tired waiting." "I am' tired, too, waiting for myl little boy. Dear, wilt you come and live with mc, so that we can wait to gether?" The blue eyes gazed for a long, silent moment into the other eyes of tender brown, A .look of utter trust fulness stole over the childish fea tures, a pair of little arms 'twined about the neck of the lovely lady, and the curly head sank upon her breast. The conductor drew his sleeve a cross his eyes. "I mistook," he mur mured under his breath. "Heaven ain't named on our books, but it's sure on the line, after alll" Selected. CURIOUS THINGS TAUGHT BY SPINNING TOPS. All spinning bodies possess curious properties, which they do not possess when in the state of rest. Stand a top on its peg and it will immediately fall over, but spin the top and it will stand up so long as the spinning mo tion is present. Spinning bodies seem to possess or acquire a rigidity when they arc spinning; for example, 1 steel chain, placed over a wheel which is spinning at a high rate of speed, and suddenly jerked off, will go run ning along the street like a hoop, and will only collapse into a limp pile of chain when its spinning motion comes to a stop. Our earth is a spinning body, and hence possesses all the curious pro perties which spinning bodies do. It points to the pole star, like all spin ning bodies, for every spinning body a top, a wheel, anything if under no restraint in its movement wilt grad ually turn on its axis and point to the pole star. If our earth were to stop spinning, it would immediately fall into the sun. Spinning bodies also have a tendency to stand up on end that is, on their long axis. If you spin.s an egg-shaped body it will always , endeavor to "stand on its hind tegs," so to speak, and spin on one of its ends. Hereward Carrington, in Les lie's Weekly. THAT'S THE RUB.
