PEOPLE TO BLAME
HAVE THOUOHTLttSLY AIDED IN CENTRALIZINQ INDUSTRIES. EVILS NOW CLEARLY SEEN Unequitable Dletribution of th Earn ing of tha Peoplo Inevitably fol lowedGrowth of Small Towna and Cemmunltlta Retarded. During the lam few montha or 1907 the pople had striking example of the effects of too much centralliatlon, While all over the t'nlted Btatea there was prosperity, a few embarrassed concema In Wall alreet. New York, brought alKiut a financial etringency that became generally felt. For yeare the agricultural sections have been sending money by the million to the icreat financial ccntera. Here It waa used for the building; tip of great trusts and combinations, which were greatly overcapitalised. On thia watered capitalization the peoplu have been compelled to pay ponderoua dlvl dends. One natural law la that of enncentrnl Haatlnn. aegregatlon. and In theae mat tera Nature carrlea on Ita work well. but unnatural concentration, like oth er Infractions of natural lawa, bring quick punlHhment. The centralization of IndtiHtrlea which haa been going on Klnco the triiHt era atarted haa brought about an unequitable, distri bution of the eurnlnga of the people. It baa retarded the growth of towna and communities, it haa brought In it wake muny evil that nlTect work er In every field. Yet for theae evil the maaae of people are to blame. Kvery mnn, woman and child who la bora and who aenda the product of thut labor to other place than the home community assist just n much In centralization of buainea and financial power. Kvery resident of n rurul community wbu aemU hi dol Inra to the large city helpa along the trust bulldera and the rentrallzera. The commercial enterprise am the life element of tha rurul town. When thee enterprises are destroyed, the town deteriorate. With the dis apearance of the town goc the home ninrkufs, the good schools and the churches and the other public con venience that the town afford. With the going down of the town, real es tate value are depreciated, and de pression come to all the community. How would the farmer fare If the town were wljied out end only the lurge cltle allowed to exist? What kind of market would the farmer linve for all their produce? How does the average farmer find dealing with city concema at tha present time? When a shipment of egg I made to the city commission man, doe the farmer get a good return aa he does from the homo dealer? How about ttther produce? It Is the home ma.-- Vet that afford the grower of pro duce protection. When the calm thinker who la engaged In agriculture consider all these lltllo matter, he will find that In home patronnge lies the keystone of tils success. How would the agricultural district' be as living1 i!nu were there no home town? Hut thl U What the attuatlon would bo If all the people of a com munity sent to aonie foreign place for all the good required. I fob.." I word dear to all good eitlsens. That man lack patriotism whoe IncIInallou It oppose the progress of the place Where he re side, ny making better the home town, we are Improving the com nmnltv of which we are a tiart We cannot Improve with .ut benefiting ourselves. We cannot give patronage to concerns In the large cities without giving Just so much hclu to the trust bulldera and the busliiua centralizes. All these thing are worthy of the most aerlou consideration of every citizen, Nd of Lessons In Economy. A uumber of stute agricultural -department have Inaugurated a aeries of farmer' Institute. At tlieso meet' Inga, the science of agriculture In Its varloua phases I ably discussed by able authorities. It apieara that It would be advantageous to take up other matter relative to furm life, a well a merely the science of farming. ,I.osons In simple economy .could be given to farmera and their wives, par ticularly along the lines of country development, of the essentials In building up the country and protec- ' tlon of local Industries. This field alone offers a wide latitude for ener getic work. The farmer should under stand principles upon which commerce is based, as well as being versed In the growing of produce, which the hauls of commerce. Remember that trusts and combina tions are never bullded up In the small towns. They find their origin and flourish In the large cities. That town which haa not sufficient Industries to employ Its people is sure to go backward. BUILDING UP THE CHARACTER. A rw Word to the Youth Who Would Mako th Moat of Life. It I well that th majority of value being well thought of. Pew young men, anxious to make the most of life, care to have what I common ly known aa a "bad reputation.' Do you, young man, ever atop to think that there a.-e Immutable law that control the universe and all therein? Do you ever consider that light la only the evidence of a luminous body? That the brilliancy of the diamond 1 merely the rays reflected from the perfectly cryatallzed carbon? Reputa tion I only the reflection from char acter a It la variously projected upon the screen of public opinion; but rep utation la hot character, any more than the light la the luminous body, but I merely the effulgence, the re sult of character. The Imitation diamond for a time may rival In splendor and brilliancy the reflection of light of the genuine gem, but thl brilliancy I soon dulled. The same with reputation, which sometime attaches to character which will not stand the test of time, or tho scrutiny of the exacting eye of Justice. Week after week we lead In the page of the press of the downfall and disgrace of men nigh in public estimation, and who. until their duplicity was expoicd. were men of most excellent reputation reputation reflected falsely from an unclean ciar- actor. Chmacter Is the mold of moral nn arloiiRness. It I the outgrowth of the heart carefully nurtured by truth and love and directed by Intelligence aolely Influenced by Hint which la nioral In man. It I by reputation that we are to bo Indued by those with whom we are thrown In either business or social Intercourse. Our own act are the standard by which we will bo either praised or con demned. Our own act are the Indica tion of tho spirit within. Though we may be most excellent In character, sometimes we may be falsely estimat ed; may acquire through some misun derstood circumstance a reputation un desirable. Hut character ever count. It I ure to bring to the front It worth. The diamond may be robbed of It brilliancy for a time by grime ami dirt, but It la nevertheless a dia mond. Your true worth may be ob scured for a time, but It Is sure to become known. Character I the greatest thing tho young oian has to guard. It Is the only sure foundation upon which hope can be rightly based. He who I true to himself cannot be untrue to other. Would you have character and repu tation, you must work, constantly, un ceasingly, aa conscience becomes dead ened and degenerate when not exer cised, and conscience direct tho miiiiung or character. ihero are qualltlea In man that mark hi great ness and his superiority the moral and the mental, and It la by the exer cise of these thut gieatnes and suc cess are gained, Adulterated Foodstuffs. The chemist In charge of the labora tory of tho department of agriculture at Chicago haa been paying careful attention to the purity of foods. Ho. cenlly he made a statement that one great spice company annually ground up 600 tona of rocoanut shells and fla vored the same with essential oil and then sold the powdered atull for pure spices, lie related about another con cern which sold $100 000 worth of spices annually, only five per cent of which were pure. The common arti cles used for adulteration of spices are sawdust, brick dust, burnt grains, cocoanut sheila and other kind of shell and bark. It I the aim of the Cnlted State government to put an end to ttils adulteration of foods. Klnce the government has bocomo active In truclug down such fraud a number of unscrupulous grocery houses have been compelled to go out of buslnesH. Knock th KnocVer, No enterprising, growing com munity, nor any other kind of a place, haa any use for the malcontent, visually known aa a "knocker." Many of the worst siiecliiiens of knockers are not the onea who by their words Injure the home town, but are the ones who without good reaaon send away all the money they have to spend to some distant place, thus robblug the home town of the support that ll should rightly have, it ia the business that keep the town alive. Anything that decrease the volume of business Injures the place. One may claim that their money la earned by bard work, and that the right to spend It wherever they wish Is theirs. Ilut there Is such a thing as princi ple, and by principles are men gauged by their fellow men. The "knocker" Is one whe valuos principle as noth ing worth preserving or protecting. Sometimes It Is Ignorance, tho lack of knowledge, whlcb Impels people to do things contrary to their own In terests and the Interests of their neighbors ; but It mat tore little bow theae things are brought about, the evil effect It Jus the aatne. Massive Dam at Lossburg. The Kl Paso Herald describes tho lasliurg reclamation project which has Just been completed at Beldon, Dona Ana county, as follows: "To those business men who hav Just aeen the government s Irrigation worka ut l-essuurg for the first time, there mtist have come a strong Im pression of else, solidity, cost and con scientious construction. The works at the diversion dam and headgute are massive and Impress one Indelibly wlih the power of mn over the ele ments.

"Ilut If thl work I Impressive, what can we Imagine the great storage dum mid reservoir at fclcphuiit Untie to lie like? Tlut dam will be 21:, feet high from bedrock, and 1.200 feet long, ex tending !n a majestic curve across the gap of the b 3 canon, and having room on top for a broad driveway. The depth of tho water will lie 175 feet and there will be no flow of water over the cret of the dam. Spillways must be pro vlded to take care of the whole flow of the river In case the reservoir would become filled and a flood ensue. "The relative cost of the two struc ture will give an Idea of what to ex pect when tho great work at Rlephaut llutte la well under way. The Klephant Hutte strut turn will c st thirty-five times as much aa the Inslmrg struc ture tind It will bo onn hundred limes more Impicsslve In every w.iy.
