not keep a single hog upon their farm
and at the same time they are throw

from the table to keep a good sow or
two, and, besides raising their own
meat, have a nice little bunch to sell

Woodside, Dec. 21.—Farmers of ■
Delaware have been fairly prosperous
this year, . It is true, however, that
part of their prosperity is because of
short crops elsewhere In the United
States. The same conditions are not
likely to follow next year and.
wise to think of their work itr
light. Farmers recognize that in their
business competition is very Btrong
what they have not realized as they
ought Is the fact that they
study the situation, not onfj
adocal stand point but from a world
wide view. In the past It has been
considered that the farmers of our
land notonly fed all other classes but
because oftheir sturdy common sense
helped to mould the politics of state
and probably dictated as did no other
class, what the laws should be.
now they have lost that position no
