Man Mads Country Towns; God to De Thanked For Them Ten Men En gaged In Rural Life Succeed Where There Is but One Succeeds In the City. ConyrlKhteil. 1QI4. by Thomas J. Sulllvnn. If you would bo known and Dot know, regStUte In u village. If you Would know and not be known, live la the city, Uod made the country, ami man made the town. What wonder that health und virtue should abound and least bo threatened In Held and grove! But, while man made the country towns, God Is to bo thanked for them. They have been as lamps of life alone; the pathway of humanity and religion. Within them treat men have been born and great minds conceived and ' . . n.L,i o tm n A i.i developed. Behind their walls freedom haa fought her noblest battles. Tlipy have stood on the Surface of the cartb like great breakwaters, rolling back or turning aside the swelling tide of op pression. Country towns huve been the cradles of human liberty. They have been the uetlve sentries of almost all church and state reformation. Towns Not Dead Only Sick. We refer, of course, to live, prosper ous towns, not places that are dead and ready for tho lust sad rites. Of course there are many towns which are not dead, only sick. They need a tonic to quicken their pulse; they need general treatment by a community Specialist, or, better still, they should consult their prldo and their conscience i rt n full MnllaaMnn of I their position and condition. The Wise farmer is looking for the w ...arket neaalhU for bis nruducts. . .n.. fl.i ir i iivo i town where there are live, up to date merchants and business men. These men are not only making good mar kets for the farmer, but are vitally in teres ted in the welfare of the entire towu and surrounding community. For Universal Good. They see beyond the results of one day's trade and realize that there is something more in life than mere money making. They are actively in terested lu bettering community con ditions from an educational, social, moral as well as financial standpoint. Effort In this line is not confined to the town alone, as the magnificent benefits extend beyoud the corporation limits. The town Is made a community and trade center for farmers as well as townspeople, where there is a lively co-operation which makes for univer sal good. It was a beautiful truth which our forefather! symbolized when In the old market towns they erected a mar ket cross, as if to teach both buyers and sellers to rule their actions and sanctify their gains by the remem baanea of the cross. Standard Goods Bear Trade Mark. The live town furnishes a market for all kinds of farm produce. It also becomes a center of exchange which supplies, every human requirement from a needle to a steam thrasher or the luxurious automobile. Modem merchants pride themselves on their ability to serve the buying public. They fill their stores with merchandise of a standard quality which should make and keep customers. In previous articles we have shown how a good town contributes to higher farm values and how farm prosperity may be directly and greatly influenced by the presence of a good town. This being the case, there is a natural rela tion between country and townspeople j which many perhaps have not thor- J, ! oughly considered Same Goods, Same Price. A live town with live merctiants I who are broad minded enough to look beyond present day profits invariably ; affects land values and the deslrablllty of the countryside as a place to live. Let It be remembered that standard I made goods bearing a registered trade ! mark sell for the same price the world ! over, and the manufacturer's guaran tee of quality stands behind them in the village store as well as In the large city mercantile emporium. Any manufacturing concern which will permit itself to lie tempted Into turning out goods which do not bear Its name or trademark la a mighty un reliable Institution. If its dealings with the mall order house are fair and honest why does it try to shield itself from public discovery? PHea and Quality. The lower grade goods and "sec- 1 onds- never carry the maker's name ' and are sold almost exclusively by the retnil catalogue houses or ten cent stores to consumers who have not an opportunity to inspect the goods or ; who consider the price rather than 1 quality. Buying your necessaries at home and ! selling your produce at home is what makes and keeps the home market j and contributes largely to the making 0f the home town and community thf of ptace in which one general!; 6eslns to live and die. , FARMINGTON GREENHOUSES BUTTERFIELD'S CUT FLOWERS, , PLANTS.

As to the justness and righteousness of this in surance of our lighting men Secretary McAdoo says: "Military service in the United States is obligatory) those who im peril themselves have no election. The insurance companies do not and cannot permit this to affect their calculations. They must protect themselves by charging premiums so high that they are secured against loss no matter how severe the rate of mortality may be. Consequently the very men who are cailed into the service because their physical condition is the best and who aa civilians would for that reason bo able to secure the most favorable in surance rate in peace time, are de nied as soldiers the necessary life in surance to enable them to protect thei families and dependents. The extra hazardous risks of wai puts insurance entirely beyond the reach of the con scripted soldier. "The government whfch subjects these men to this insurmountable discrimination should itself supply in surance to soldiers at cost and upon the peace basis. It would in fact he dastardly and undemocratic if tho government should penalise the sol dier who is forced to render the high est duty of the citizen, by failing to provide for him war insurance upon peace terms and at net cost. The pay cf the enlisted men in the army and navy is less than the wages and sal aries generally earned In private Ufa and government insurance is an es sential war and emergency measure inaugurated for the specific benefit of our military forces and cannot and should not be conducted for profit. "This leglslati in will be a great step forward in the recognition cf the Re public's duty to its heroes. It deserves earnest and vigorous support of tho oountiy.
