of that city were practically forced

consequently out of touch with their
patrons. Sales fell off at once—and
fell off alarmingly. Even the stores
catering to regular customers were
hard hit. Some merchants tried di
vwet advertising through the medium
of circulars and handbills. But it
failed to bring the trade. As long
as the strike continued and the
papers could not devote anything like
Tegular space to the needs of the
stores, business slumped badly. It

"LTOW many people are aware of the
fact that nine other commodities
outrank wheat as a source of income
the Ameriran farm? Corn, hay,
cattle, hogs, poultry, dairy products,
cotton, fruit and several other pro
ducts bring in much more mosey than
wheat, according to government sta
tistics. Not one farmer in ten raises
wheat, but all of them must buy our
and feeds that are made from it, and
therefore benefit by a low market. In
spite of these facts, more fuss is
made in the press and on the stump
about low prices to the wheat grower
than about low pnees on all the otn
er products which are more univer
sally produced and which mean so
much more in a financial way to the
, —, . ,, ...
producer. The reason for all this
noise about wheat and all this silence
about things that mean so much more
to the average farmer is that most
cf us take our cue from professional
politicians. They are unable to get
agitated about anything but the price
of wheat, the staple crop of just a
few Western states. The balance of

who never raise a bushel of that

an editorial protest cgainst low hay
markets or did you ever hear a politi
cian declaim against cheap fruit pro
ducts? You probably never did. And
yet either of these commodities brings
in twice as much every year as the
entire of wheat.

^0 TOWN can grow as it should
unless its people work together in
its upbuilding. The history of every
city that has had rapid and substan
tial growth will show that united
and enthusiastic work of its people
had the greatest part in making it
grow. In towns where a few live men
boost and work for the town's up
building and many are indifferent and
do nothing, the work of city building
is exceedingly difficult and the
suits slow in coming. If all boost
and help to build up the town it is
an easy matter to make the town push
forward. The beauty of a city is one
of rts most valuable assets, and every
effort should be made to take advan
tage of the gifts which nature has
bestowed here lavishly.
