To do this we shall point out, first, that such a life develops, in the best possible way, man's body, mind and soul; second, the sharp contrast be tween this and some othier vocations; third, man's mighty kingdom and his place therein. It is not a physician's secret that a person, even from birth to death, must have an abundance of sun shine, fresh air and exercise, a suf ficient amount of nutritious' foods, sleep and recreation; an ample sup ply of.cheerfulness and contentment, if , his or her body is to grow and then always be in the pink of con dition. The absence of any -of these in our bodies mean's , poor health with all of its attending misery and unhappiness. As conditions exist to-day in towns and cities, what per cent, pray, of the population is abla to obtain all of these elements in the ' proportions we have men tioned? Isn't it safe to fc-sy fist fully seventy-five per cent jf the people who dwell in towns and cities are being cheated, or are cheating them selves, out of what rightfully be longs to them losing their God given birthrights? On the other hand, all of these things are placed within the easy reach of those living in the country, where they may be had for the asking. What is true of conditions that promote the physical well-being is true of mental and spiritual growth as well. Could you but know of the many and varied problems that confront and are solved by the really successful farm er, you might understand how his mental powers could be developed to gigantic proportions. , And do you think that you could spend a year on a farm close to life In -all of its dif ferent forms and not observe the beauty, the majesty, and the power of the Father of creation? Can you not see the sublimity of God in the magnificent stalk of corn or wheat that springs from a grata no larger than your smalleot finger tips? Or are you not deeply moved when you behold the opening and unfolding of a beautiful flower? Tennyson ex presses the thought in: Flower in the crannied wall, I pluck you out of the crannies, I hold you here, root and all, in my derstand , hand, f- Little Flower -if you cquld but un- What you are, root and all, and all In all, should know what God and man is And all of this is a commonplace event in the daily life of one who spends his time among God's cr.ea tures. We would not disparage any other honorable vocation, for such is far from : our purpose, but let us com pare agriculture with commerce. Let Martin Luther speak for us. In his address to the German , nobility and iq questioning the honesty of the sudden rise of ; great fortunes, through commerce, he has this to say: "All I know is that it were more godly to encourage agriculture and lessen commerce; and they do the best who, according to the scrip tures, till the ground to get their living." You . hav no doubt noticed the vulture-like methods by which peo ple of the city are wont to secure the means for their subsistence from their fellows. They seem to be anx ious lest their victims escape, and usually manage to fleece them either by fair means or foul. "Husband men live by what they can get by industry from the eftth; and others by what they can catch by craft from men," says' Cowley, and the more we observe, the more are we able to appreciate the truth of his statement. :'': . Men who are seeking rest from the nerve-racking activities of the hurrying city usually find their ref uge far away from the noise and confusion of crowded sections in some little nook where nature rules supreme. Locke, in his essay ; on recreation, reminds us that, "The, great men of the ancients under stood very well Bow to reconcile manual labor with affairs of state and thought it no degree lessening to their dignity to make the one the recreation of the other. That indeed which seems most generally to have employed and diverted their j J. L. spare hours was agriculture." 11 FASHION PARK -SECTION FOR THE CONVENIENCE OF MEN WHO ENJOY PURCHASING A READY-TO-PUT-ON SUIT, WHICH HAS RECEIVED THE TREATMENT ORDINARILY GIVEN ONLY TO A CUSTOM i MADE SUIT, WE HAVE ORGANIZED THE FASHION PARK SECTION.
