"Just ignore it," they 1 say; "act as if there were no such thing." That seems about as foolish to us as the story that the ostrich buries its head in the sand when frightened and no longer seeing its enemy, con siders itself safe. We don't intend to play ostrich. Our eyes are wide open. A wrong exists and we feel it is up to us to face it. Playing fair is merely giving a square deal all around. Playing fair is living up to the golden rule. If a business man plays fair with his trade, if he truly lives up to his responsibilities and gives the best service he can give, playing fair with him means giving him an equal chance. Honest competition is a mighty good thing; the more the merrier. Every buyer owes his local trades men a square chance to make good, no more, no less. It is up to the dealers after that chance has been given. All we ask of those who read this is that they see both sides of the case. We are here to (five v service no outsider fan possibly give. We are here to make good by pleasing. We ask no special favors. We want no subsidy. We will stand or fall on our merits. All we ask is fair play and an equal chance for the home town. —Barmans Inc., Colville. —adv. Everybody In Talking About Her Yes, everybody is talking about her! About whom? The dairy cow! From wall street and the small town banker, from the great mart of trade and the cross roads store, from the industrial center and the most remote hamlet come the same tidings—the dairy cow is the savior of agriculture. Economists, financiers, manufac turers, statesmen, and in fact, all student of economic and industrial conditions, unite in the conclusion that agriculture is the foundation of national prosperity and that dairy husbandry is the most Btubalizing force in agriculture. Periods of depression and times of stress serve at least one useful purpose. They teach US relative values of related things, correct our biased, or, at least, imperfectly'form ed judgments. And so it has come to pass that the dairy cow has at last come into her own. We seem to be undergoing what may l>e termed a national awaken ing relative to the tremendous im portance of the dairy cow in our na tional life. Fathers and mothers, educators and men of science are learning that the only Insurance for strong, sturdy children, both physi cally and mentally, is a constant and adequate Blipply of milk and its products in the daily ration. lor we old timers who have fol lowed in the path of the dairy cow these many years, the recognition that has come to the dairy industry and the prominence it has achieved is indeed a source of profound satis faction. We can scarcely realize that the weak, insignificant, struggling industry of a half a century ago has no., become the giant in agriculture. Page ?
