THE FARMINGTON TIMES, FARMINGTON. MISSOURI. OCTOBER 'I. 1919
TACE FOUR THE FARMINGTON TIMES Published Every Friday A. W. BRADSHAW, Editor Telephone No. 59. Entered as second-class matter at the Poetoflice at Farmington, Mo. Subscription, $1.50 a year, in advance B EC M I N G U N POP U L A R The Times heartily approves of the following sentiment; from the Cape Girardeau Daily bun: While there is no denying the fact that, in general, the sentiment it the great majority of the people of the country is usually, at least tolerantly, sympathetic to labor, it is daily be coming more apparent that strikes are not regarded with the same decree of leniency by the public as tornierly. One. thing which has, apparently contributed largely to this general feeling of disapproval, is the fact that too often they are called Delore mere is substantial and satisfactory reason for such action. There have been too many cases, especially since the be ginning of the war, where labor has acted in an arbitrary manner. The truth is that, while the people of this country have always backed up and are still disposed to back up, the legitimate aims ol labor when sought by lawful means, there is not only a disnosition to approve, but there is a firm determination on the part of all fair-minded people to oppose all move ments, whether by organized labor or any other section orhouy ot our peo- Dle. which undertake to violate the fundamental principles of democratic government and to employ illegal and un-American methods for the secur ing and maintenance of power. The people will back labor when it is right, but they will not hesitate to block labor when it is wrong. The entire trouble in settling the League of Nations proposition, and the war treaty, is solely due to a per sonal and political (igiit between the Ilemociats and Republicans, as to which party is to get the credit for the victory over the Huns. That's all there is to it. It's not the people who belong to either party hut mere ly ambitious, time-serving politicians, who, in order to achieve their own sel fish ends, would be willing to open hell and turn it loose upon civilisation. How hriig will the people stand for it? K. I.amitv's Harpoon, San Antonio, Texas-. "Have you struck yet?" inquires the Paris Mercury. "If not, organize yourself immediately and quit work at once. In these days with an ap proaching millennium apparent on all sides no man really ought to have less than $50,000 a year, four automobiles, a summer abroad each year, and win ter vacation thrfcwn in. An hour a day at, say, $100 an hour with time and a half for overtime, is all any cit izen ought to work under the new or der. Walk out, anyhow. If every body can be induced to quit work things will prosper marvelously and you with them." HERE'S ONE WAY TO SAVE II YOU HAVE COO I) NEIGHBORS A local newspaper invited citizens, particularly women, to tell others how the high cost of living can be resisted. This letter came, signed "Mrs. J. V. Kingsley, North Fond du Lac, Wis." "We had our phone taken out, as our neighbors have a phone and as it does not cost them any more if we use it. Save $1.50 per month. "We sold our refrigerator and use spare room in our neighbors' boxes. Save $5 per month. "We stopped our newspaper and borrow morning paper from one neigh bor about 0 a. m. (they are usually through with it about that time), and evening paper from other neighbor about 8 p. w. This makes us a lit tle late with the news, but we do not mind that. Save $2.25 per month. "We do not rent a scat in church because we know a family that does who usually go to late service, so John and I make it a point to go to early services, using their seat. Of course, they sometimes come to early services too, and make it quite crowded for us, but we are getting them into the hab it of taking some other vacant seat when they come to ' early services. Save $1.10 per month. "When our neighbors use their ov en (they both have large;ones) we al ways put In a small jar of hoans or macaroni or a few potatoes and bake them rvt the same time, cuts gas- bills. We estimate we save $1 a month. "The round trip car fare between tills village and Fond diTLae Is 0 cents, so when we must make a pur chase in the city we have our neigh bor bring it along. We estimate we save $1.60 per month. "We do considerable calling on friends, usually Thursdays and Sun days. We find it good for our health end we save several meals per montn We estimate we save $ti per month. "Every spring we buy two dozen chicks and let them run.

"Village ordinance provides that tin cans be hauled to 'dump' soon as snow is gone, it costs 25 cents per year to have them hauled away, and as our neighbor has to have his cans hauled away, and is no extra expense if ours are included, we throw our cans on his pile and save 2 cents per month. . , , "Prices on clothing have worried us a Jittlc, bat we cannot complain,, as I must soy we are lucky in that John wears a No. 1-2 hat and on this ac count we estimate! we'save 10 cents per month. ... . Xhe writer and John thus save the tidy euro of $21-24 month.". in : WEEKLY NEWS NOTES (Iiy the County Agent.) Chicken Culling Demonstrations. Chicken culling demonstrations will be given at the following places the coming week: Ed Powers, near Bismarck, 10 a. m., Monday, Oct. 0th. Mrs. J. E. Beard, near Fnrmington, 10 a. m Tuesday, Oct. 7th. Mrs. Peter Cook, Farmington, R. F. 1). 4, 10 a. m., Wednesday, Oct. 8th. Reports coming to the office from people who have culled their own flocks, show that they have taken out from one-fourth to three-fourths of their flocks without an appreciable decrease in eggs. Culling of chickens means a saving j of feed on poor producing hens but, above all, it means that we are going to breed up the average farm flock to ! be a much better producing flock. We i are weeding out the poor hen just like j our Hereford men weeded out llie grade cow and substituted an animal ; many times its superior. Dairymen .Make Trip to Jefferson County in Search of Jerseys. Four cars of St. Francois county folks, interested in dairying, drove to Horine, in Jefferson county, to look over a Jersey herd which had been listed for sale. The cattle were rath er a disappointment. They contained some of the best Jersey blood lines possible to find, but were typical ex amples of poor care. No purchases wore made on the trip, but several men are in correspondence with the owner of the farm, relative to secur ing some of his baby calves. The trip in itself was very instructive to some of the men. Frequent remarks were made along the road about how much superior the stock seen in St. Francois county was to that seen on the entire trip. One man who made the trip had been planning to sell his farm but made the remark upon his return, that St. Francois county looked mighty good to him and that he did not believe ho would sell.
