manently satisfying, writes Mabel
Carney in Country Lite and tho Coun
try School. Part satisfaction, oven
financial prosperity, does not suffice,
rho wealthiest agricultural slates
Bhow even greater rural dcplotlon
during tho last decode than the poor
er sections. In Illinois, which ranks
first In farm values, rural population
decreased In nixty-elght counties be
tween 1000 nnd 1010. In town .(ha
lotnl rural population decreased 7 per
cent during the name period. A iJk-
ulf leant nspect of this. snif ling of far
mers Is the rapid growth of tenantry
nnd landlordism. Forty per cent ot
the farms In tho t'ulted States are
now operated by tenants. Deserted
churches, poor bcIiooIh, broken com
munities nnd outlines poor forming,
nil declare the evils of this system.
No satisfying rural civilization thr
oughout the history of agriculture
has over been constructed upon n
system of tenantry and landlordism.
Tho corncrstono of every successful
rur.il social order Is that land shall
bo tilled by those who own nnd cher
