Obstacles to Be Overcome Are Point ed Out, Together with Sugges tions for Guidance of the Na tional Government. Washington. Report of tho commis sion on country life, of especial inter est to the farmers, was read In both houses of congress. A summary fol lows: To tho President: The commission on counlrv llfo herewith presents Ha report. Tho commission tlntla that agriculture In tho United States, taken together. Is prosperous commercially, when measurtd by the conditions Hint have obtained in previous years, al though there tiro aomo regions In which this Is only partially true. Tho country people are producing vast quantities of supplies for food, Bheltor, clothing, and for use in the arts. Tho country homos are Improving In com fort, attractiveness nnd healthfulness. Not only In the material wealth that they produce, but in the supply or In dependent and strong citizenship, the ag ricultural people constitute tho ery foundation ot our national elllciency. As agilculturo Is the immediate basis of country life, ho It follows that the genet ill affairs of thu open country, speaking bioadly, aro In a condition of Impiovcment, Most Prominent Deficiencies. Vet it Is true, notwithstanding nil this progress ns met nit ed by hls toilcal .stiindaids, that agilculturo la not commercially as piotltable as It la tntltled to be for the labor and energy that the fanner expends and the risks that he assumes, and that the- social conditions in the open country are far shoit of their possibilities. -I'lir. rnrijnns fnv tin. Inplr nf n lilrMilv organized niral society aie ery many, as the full report explains. The lend ing specitlc causes are' Lack or good training for country life in the schools; I-ick ot good highway facilities; The widespread continuing deple tion of soils, with the Injuiious effect on rural life, A general need of new and active leadei ship Other ciusea contributing to the. geneial result are: Lack of any ade quate sjstem of agricultural credit, whereby the fatmcr may readily se em e loans on Talr terms; the short age ot labor, a condition that Is often complic.ttt d by Intemperance among wot knit n, lack of institutions and in centives that tie the l.iboiing man to the soil: the burdens and the narrow life of farm women; lack or adequate supei vision of public health. Nature of the Remedies. Congress can remove some of the h. idicaps of the farmer, and it can also het some kinds of work in motion such us: The encouragement of a sjstem of thoi ough-goiug survevs of all agricul tural legions in older to take stock and to develop n scientifically and cconomicallj t.ound country life; The establishing of a nationalized svstem of etenson work In rural communities thiougli all the lind ginnt colleges with the people at their homes and on llulr faims; A thoiough-going lnv trtigatlon by epei ts of the mlddlemin .sj.stcm of handling fntm product., coupltd with a general Inquirj into the firmei'a dis.idvantiges in itspect to taxitlon. transportation lutes, co-opeiatlon oi -ganir-itions and ciedlt, and the gen eial business, svstem: An Inquiry Into the cnntiol nnd use of the .streams of tho t'nlted States with the object of piotecting the peo ple It their ownership nnd of .saving to agricultural uses such benellts as should be reserved for these purposes; Tho establishing of n sstem of parcels pout and postal savings banks, And piovldlng some means or agency for the guldanco of public opinion towaid the development of a real mini society that bhall rest di rectly on the land Other remedies recommended for consideration bv congress ore The enlaigcinent of tho United States bureau of education, to enablo It to stimulate and co-oidinnto tho ed ucational work of the nation; Caret ul ntuntlon to the farmeis' Intortstu In legislation on tho tariff, on regulation of i.iilroads, control or regulation of eoi porntions and of spec- ul itlon, legislation in respect o: riv ets, foiests, and tho utilization of bwnmp Lutein: Inci easing the powers of the fed oral government in icspect to tho supervision and control of the public health; Providing such regulations as will enable the st ites that do not permit tho sale of liquors to protect them selves from tratlic from adjoining states. In sotting all theso forces In motion, tho co-operation of the states will bo necossaiy; and In many cases tlellnlto stato laws may greatly aid tho work. He-medics of a more- general nature are: A broad campaign of publicity, that must he undertaken until all tho peoplo aio Informed on the whole sub ject of rui.il life, nnd until then) Is an nwnkcncd appreciation of the neces sity nf giving this phnse of our na tional development as much nttentlon us has been given to other phases or Interests, a quickened sense of re bponslbillty, in all tho country people, to the community nnd tho statu in thu conserving of soil fertility, and In tho necessity for dlverslf Ing farming In order to conserve this fertility anil to develop u hotter niral society, and also In the hotter snfe-gunnllng of the strength and happiness of tho farm women; it moro widespread conviction of the necessity of organization, not only for economic but for social prr poscs, this organization to be moro or less co-opeuitlve. so that all me people mny Bharo equally In the benellts nnd lmvo voleo in the essential nffalra of tho communitv; n realization on the part of the faimer that ho has a dis tinct natural responsibility toward tho laborer In providing hint with good living facilities and Jn helping him In every way to be a inntt among men; nnd n realization on tho part of all ti.o peoplo of tho ohllgntlon to protect mid develop tho natural scenery nnd ftttractlvcnebs of tho open country. ON COUNTRY LIFE SPECIAL MESSAGE FROM WHITE HOUSE TO CONGRESS. President Suggests Social and Bust noos Improvements for the Bene flte of tho Dweller In Agri cultural Communities. Washington. Accompanying the re port of the country life commission the president sent a special messago to congress, substantially as follows: To tho Senate and Hollso of Represent atives: 1 transmit herewith tho report of the commission on country life. At the outset I deslro to point out that not n dollar of the public money has been paid to any commissioner for his work on the commission The leport shows tho general condition of farming llfo In tho open country, and points out Its larger problems, It Indi cates ways In which the government, na tional and state, may show the poplo how to solve some of these problems, nnd It suggests n continuance of tho work which the commission begun. Those engaged in all other Industrial and commercial callings have found It necessary, under modet i economic con ditions, to organlrc themselves for mu tual advantage and for the protection of their own particular Interests In relo. tlon to other Interests. Now, whatever the state may do to ward Improving the practice of agri culture, It Is not within the sphere of any government to reorganize the farm ers' business or reconstruct the social lire or running communities. It Is, how ever, quite within Its power to use Us influence and the machinery of publicity which It can control for cnlllng public at tention to the needs of the facts Tor ex ample, It Is the obvious duty or the gov ernment to call the attention of farmers to the growing monopolization of water power The farmirs, above all, should have that power, on reasonable terms, ror cheap transportation, tor lighting their homes, and ror Innumerable uaes In tho dally tables or the fuim. Necessity for Co-Operation. The co-operative plan Is the best plan of organization wherever men have tho right spirit to carrv it out. Under this plan any business undertaking Is man aged by it committee, evtry man has one vote, and only tine vote, and every one gets protlts according to what he sells or hujs or supplies It develops In dividual responsibility and has a moral as well as a financial value over any otl-pt plan I desire only to take counsel with the farmers as fellow -citizens. It Is not the p'roblem of the farmers alone that I am discus-lug with them, but a problem which affects everj city as well as every farm in the country. 1'rom all that has been done nnd learned threo great general and immedi ate needs of country life stand out Uirst, effective co-operation among rainifts, to put them on a level with the organized Interests with which they do business. Second, a new kind of schools in the country, which shall teach the children as much outdonis as indoors and per haps more, so that they will prepare for country life, and not ns at present, main ly for life In town Third, better means of communication. Including good roads and a parcels post, which the country pnople are everywhere, nnd lightly, unanimous In demanding To thtse ma well be add.d better san itation for easily preventable diseases hold boveral million counlrv people in tho slavery of ccntlnuous ill health. , To Develop Country Community. To improve our svstem of agriculture seems to me the most urgent of the tasks which lie befoie us Hut It cannot. In my Judgment, be eff. cted by measures which touch only the material and tech nli.il side nf the subject the whole busi ness and life of the faimer must also be taken into account Such consldeia tlons led me to appoint the commission on i-otintFy life Our object should be to help develop In the country commu nity the great Ideals of the community life as well as of personal diameter. One of the most Important adjuncts to this end must be tho tountr chuuh, and I Invite your attention to what the com mission says of the countiy churth and of the need nf an eMenslon of such work as that of the Young Men's Christian as sociation In countiy communltlis Lit iiim lav special emphasis upon what tin commission sas at tho er end ot Its repnit on personal Idta.s and local leader ship Kverytliing resolves Its, If In tho end Into the question of pt ison illt. Neithei society not govei-inunt tan do muih for country life unless there is vol untary i espouse In the peisonal Ideals of the nun nnd vvoimn who live In the countiy In the development of dim ac tor, the homo should be more Impi rtnnt than the school, oi than society nt large When once the bislc m.iteiial neuls have been imt, high Ideals m i be quite In dependent of Income, but they cannot bo ieallcd without sufliclcut income to pro vide adequate foundation, nnd where the community nt largo Is not llnanclnlly piospeious It Is Impossible to develop n lilgh avt i ago pciaonnl and community Ideal. In shoit, the fundamental facts of human natuio apply to men and wom en who live In tho country Just as they annly to men and women who live In the towns. Given n sudlelent foundation of muterlal well being, the Inllucnco of tho Linnets' wives on their childien be comes the fat tor or III st Importance In detei mining the attitude of the next gen et ntlou tow in d farm llfo. The fanner should realize that the person who most needs consideration on the farm Is his wife I do not In tho least mean that she should purchase o.iso nt the expense of tint) Neither man noi woman is really liuppy or leally useful save on condition of doing Ills ! her duty if the wom un bhlrks her duty ns housewife, ns home keepei, ns the mother whose ptlmo function Is to bear and lear n sultlclent number of healthy children, then bhe is not entitled to our regard Hut If she does her duty she- is moro untitled to our regard oven than the- man who does his duty, nml the man should show spe cial consldiiation for her needs. Welfare of Nation at Stake. I warn my countrjnien that the great recent progiess made. In city llfo Is not a full mcusuro of our civilization, for our civilization reBts on the wholesomeness, tho attractiveness, and the completeness, ns well as the prosperity, of llfo In tho country The men and women on tho farms stand for what Is fundamentally best uud most needed In our American life.
