THE FARMER IS A CRANK.
The farmer is a crank because he
«ants to borrow money at 2 per cent.
Instead of 12 lo 10 per cent. Because
he wants the government to deal with
him on the same basis that it deals with
other men. Because ho wauls more
than 4.7 rents a bushel for wheat and
seven rents a pound for rotten. Because
lie kirks against paying 7A per Cent, of
the taxes whun hr owns 25 per rent of
the properly and half of that mortgaged.
Ileeause he protests against a condition
wliii h condemns the real wealth produrer
loa life of toil, while tlie ipnoulaler lives
in luxurious esse. Benins« he hns dis
covered that l*e lias been deceived by
his (««lineal friends < Tv a»d ira» rvmelud*
ed to vole liidu,H*iideiilly. Beraose he
bus assumed to know' any thing at all
shout (Milllirs. Because he refuses tn be
robbed and I lien vole for the robber,
tteacause he lias made up his mind to
ipiil being a fool. Oh, yes, the farmer
Is u crank! He was all, he was every
tiling, as long us he done Just what
the |m. 11 tlrlixus told him tn do lint
whun he derided Ip heroine something
of a politician himself it was "Just too
awfully awful!" Because he wanted to
.to his own thinking and acting he is
tlie crankiest kind of a crank, lb' ought
to go on and support the bosses infill
ortlces ss of old; allow them to steal him
|ioor and then go to the poor house,
wouldn't he a crank then.—Boise Dein
