ployed if the farmers are to continue
to enjoy the prosperity that has come
to them during the last four years.
The need of buildings is known to
every farmer, whose place is not prop
erly supplied with housing facilities
for his crops and his live stock. Both
are too valuable nowadays to be housed
in anything but the most modern
building. The old-fashioned barn,
where it cost 99 cents in labor to pro
duce $1 in milk has given way to the
modern barn, equipped with labor-sav
ing devices—devices that promote
greater milk production. Scarcity of
labor makes such a barn a requirement
for the profitable conduct of the farm
ing industry.
That his own prosperity depends on
the prosperity of labor, not the labor
of his own community, but on the la
bor of the country, probably has not
occurred to the average farmer. To
bring this fact home, let us consider
the broad subject of labor and Its em
ployment.
War Work Brought Prosperity.
During the four or fife years pre
vious to November 11 when the armis
tice was signed, bringing to a halt all
of those Industries that had been em
ployed in furnishing war materials, la
bor had been 100 per cent employed.
Wages were the highest known to this
country, or any other country, for that
matter. The wage earners were pros
perous and that prosperity was reflect
ed In every other branch of our com
mercial, Industrial and agricultural ac
tivity.
Prices of food were high, the high
est known since the Civil war. Farm
ers were getting 200 and 300 per cent
more for their crops, live stock and
dairy products than they had received
la former times. The reason for this

increase was that the demand
there, and the wage earners had the
money to buy. Farm costs of produc
tion Increased considerably, It Is true,
but the fact that no class of workers
ln the United States hns been more
prosperous or was a larger buyer of
government bonds than the agricultu
ral workers, shows that there was
good profit ln farming.
The signing of the armistice, how
was
a
ever, put a different complexion on
the situation. War Industries halted.
The millions of men and women em
ployed by them at high wages were
suddenly thrown out of employment
The factories had been transformed
Into munitions plants. Time Is neces
sary to re-transform them into condi
tion to produce the things needed in
peac ? t,me< . .. M ,
February 1 it was estimated that
there were 10,000,000 persons, men and
women, out of employment in the
United States. From being earners
of large wagfes and capable of buy
ing food at high prices, they suddenly
were deprived of their wages and have
| become consumers, without the means
of buying things they consume.
Quickest Solution Is Building.
The government. In considering ths
possibilities of employing this labor,
looked upon building as the thing that
would provide the quickest solution
of the problem. Building, that Is, the
erection of buildings, homes In the
cities and towns, office buildings, fac
tories, municipal buUdlngs and school
houses, public Improvements, and
buildings on the farms, had been halt
ed because of the need of both labor
and materials in the production of
war-time needs. Therefore, It was rea
soned, there Is need of building and
building can start at once.
"Build a building!" That Is the
thing that the government Is urging.
Every farmer wants a modern build
Ing on his farm.
There has been great progress In ths
construction of barns during the last
few years. State laws have made
some features of barn construction ob
ligatory to protect the milk and butter
from contamination. Lack of labor
has made other features necessary be
cause they save labor.
Barn for Small Farm.
A combination horse and dairy barn
Is shown in an accompanying Illus
tration. This is a design for a small
farm, where a dozen cows and four or
five horses are kept. Here these ani
mals may be safely housed, the work
can be done easily and the winter's
supply of feed for horses and cows
may be stored.
As the ground floor plan shows, the
horse barn and cow stable are sepa
rated by a solid wall. This prevents
the ammonia fumes from the horse
barn penetrating the cow stable* a fea
ture of barn construction demanded by
the laws of some of the states.
Three single and two double or box
stalls are provided ln the horse barn.
Stalls for 12 cows are provided In the
cattle barn.
The floor of the bam Is concrete, the
feed alley being through the center.
The litter alleys are along the side
walls. The feed alley runs through
the building and Is connected at the
rear with the silo by a covered chute,
which provides a feed room. Over
each of the litter alleys Is a carrier
track, so that the manure may be
transported out of the building to the
pits on either side of the silo, where
the winter feed of the cows Is stored.
The hay mow on the second floor Is
connected with the horse bam by a
trap door, near the door that divides
the horse and cow sections of the
bam. Hay for both animals is thrown
down and is convenient to the man
gers of both.
Ventilation Is Provided.
The barn is of wooden construction,
with gambrel roofs and a system of
ventilation, without which the modem
bam Is not complete, Is also provided.
There has been a considerable re
duction recently in the cost of build
ing materials. The cost of such a bam
can easily be ascertained from the lo
cal building contractor or lumber
dealer.
•'Build a building!" It Is a patriot
ic duty to employ the labor and it
will help "keep the country and every
one in It prosperous.

in it was correct, but admitted that

There was at first a slight disagree,
