The examination re vealed very good news, no skull bruises showing up. The left optic nerve was badly Inflamed and injured which caused Roy his greatest suf fering. He will he obliged to wear glasses for sometime, to straighten the ilia of his eye, which, through the compact of the ball, had become turned. Roy is getting along fine When people get so, that they are at all times feeling themselves trod en upon, and that they’ are the only ones hiring the worse end of trou ble; It Is time they should shake the feeling from their corroded mind? We, as a people, are an infinitesimal speck when compared with thi< world at large, and to see and to know’, what trouble really is, and how many mortals fall from the ef fects of the pangs of trouble, you’d never utter a whimper about your own. Get out in the real world and see for yourselves. HARD SCRAMBLED NEWS. Sakes alive! Things are coming to pretty pass around our neighbor hood as everybody seems to want to i mind their own business.

New York authorities, from a sur- . rey of 3775 farms, report a decrease if seventeen per cent of hired men ind estimate that there are about ( 14,00 habitable houses vacant on . arms in New York. Last year abotu| 15,000 men and boys left farms In he Empire State for other occupa iona and some 11,000 came to the! 'arms from other callings—leaving i farm deficit of 24,000. There are a few points apparent *rom all this on which the urban iweller and the urban thinker can pend considerable time in profitable •eflection. One Is that the farm r wants to know why he should work! ’ourteen hours a day to feed the! -nan who sticks at an eight hour day, I md do it at a wage that he would llspise. Also he wrAild like to know ’ why he should keep on at this Dace’ to fill larders of social idlers who make no pretense of working. The typical farmer doesn't talk 'trike and doesn’t Intend to strike. He realizes that If he did he could bring on a famine that would force \ hungry world to his feet—and earn contempt of all humanity. He Now That Graduation ls Over We would like to show the Gradu ates some nice Work Togs to “Hit the Ball” in. “Good Goods Store.” Elizabeth Merc. Co is too decent, too sound a citizen and too self-respecting to give serious consideration to such a course. But he does demand intelligent consideration instead of supercilious Indifference on the part of city dwell ors generally And the chances are that he is going to get it—and in (he near future too. The squeeze of the economic balance will take care of that quite shortly—and without any deliberate slackening of his pace at the plow. He not only wants the city folks whether in evening clothes or mill shirts, to know that he is on earth, that he means something to them in a dirfect personal sense and that he L doing the most useful 'and essential job on earth, working longer hours than any union on earth would tol erate—hut he also wants a new deal and a square deal. He isn’t fights ing industry—lie’s just feeding it; and he wants industry to put Its feet [under the table with his for a free and fair consideration of mutual | problems. It appears to he up to those who would like to eat with reasonable regularity and decision to look away from the bright lights long enough to focus on the man who grows the food and fills the larders. And this obligation applies to all the men on • Industry’s pay roil from least to the j greatest, to coupon cutters, to cham | ber-of-oommerce officials and to la |bor leaders of all ranks. j There was never a better time for those outside- of agriculture to squander a little thought on the far mer and his problems than right now— Grant Bentley.
