The redeeming feature of those times was I he fnu! thai a man fell victim lo a profiteer only once in a lifetime. in those good old, days labor was considered a curse.

We are informed I hat one man went out before Mr. Wiselev came -in and took two thousand acres with mm. .nd, too, then! are several individuals holding leases, and these men are staying back and will say "We paid for our lease." The farm ers paid for the land and are paying Hie, (axes. Some of the men linsllinir lease will say 'The royally is a píen- j ty." Suppose I here is no royalty. We. want a chance to gamble a little as well as the operators. I know a fow men who have given lease, that will trade the royally on the same ! land for the lease hack. And also!

UNION COUNTY AGENCY McKADnKN Jk IllXKV lSSUniM'K THAT INSUIIHS i-.vcn iiiougn we imasi (nut our wonderful progress ha- left Hiom' primitive conditions far behind, we are asiired that in this year of grace tl beautiful young girls are being sold at. profitable prices on Hie well known skive markets of Chris tian.?' America. Fashions change, either for belter or for worse. Some of u make a grand rush to he the first to adopt the nen- styles while Others of us are very slow to lay the old aside. So we always find the old and I lie new existing side by side for a time. Itel'ore Hie slave market had en tirely crowded out ca'inibalism along conies a new style of slavery--the wage system. Today the system of wage .slavery has almosl sup planted Die old style of elnllel slav ery. The devotees of the new style are enthusiastic in their nraisc'of the new style as being a great im provement over the old stvle. There is no quesiion hut thai the new style is a great advantage to the profiteer. In the slave market of die wage system there is no high priced ancljoneer lo pay. Men ami women, boys and girls in a large enough assortment to suit the mos discriminating tastes, offer them selves lo the highest bidder, on (he installment plan with no payment exuded in advance. Since slaves are not iiiimorlal this modern ar rangement relieves Hie profiteer of a great deal of unnecessary risk al the same time leaving ac.-iiinulaled profits free to lie invested in more productive lines. The old ajyj,. save market caused a great deal or "froz en credit." It seems almost incred ible to believe that in the unenlight ened past financiers wore often com pelled lo lie up as much as .$(00.00 id precious gold in a six months old baby and wait fifteen or twenty years for the beginning of returns on his investment. While the wage slave market is sun doing a land office business, along comes a new style a new wav In "cash in" your neighbors. There was a -sort of half-way stage be tween tho chattel slave and the wage slave in some places - that was serf dom. 'The lords who owned the land did not sell the people from the land they just sold Hie land and Hie people were thrown in for good measure. In some respects our new style resembles serfdom. This new style plan is simply lo sell our rarms or our business for'whnl (hey are worth and then "cash in" on our neighbors by adding to the price what we consider oilr neighbors and our patrons are worth to the pros pective buyer. When a physician sells his patients or a lawyer sells his clients or a merchant soils his customors he calls it "good will." That is much njor0 rofintd than it would bo for either of (bom (o sejl "ub," ;iz: Joo Smith, John Hrown, etc. When the farmer sells his farm ho does the same thing. Of course We Have Just Received a New Shipment of the Great Western Ran ges They Use Less Fuel Let Us Show You firm lie claims to he selling Ins farm, bul in realitv he is sidling hs (arm and "cashing in" on his neighln rs at the same time. Suplióse lie prices Ins farm al fifty dollars per acre, what is he really doing? A real analysis or that fitly dollars would look something like this: Ileal value of laud in natural stale - I'ulliiig laud in cultivation and testing out crops adapted to the farm Buildings, fences, trees, etc...

UNITED REALTY COMPANY Total . -$O.W0 In other words he is -.piling his farm for twenty-live dollar.4 pur acre and his neighbors for twenty five dollars per acre. This is the modern slave market. It s quite a refinement over Hie older styles hut we are "sold" against our will just as l.rnlj as was the tlave in Hie-old style -market. We have n'o serious objection when a good neighbor "cashes in" on his good neighbors but it goes! against the grain when a bad neigh-! bur one who has done nothing or less than nothing to make a good1 neighborhood "cashes m" mi hisj good neighbor. It also goes against1 Hie grain when a good neighbor tails lo "cash in" because he has no good neighbors who are real assets to the community. Are we real cooperalors? Aro we trying to put into our town as much as we hope lo "cash in" on ' the town? Are we putting as much into our neighborli I as we hope to "cash in" on our neighborhood? Are we putting into our roads as much is we hope lo "cash in" because of good roads? Are we pulling into our schools as much as ve hope to "cash in" because of our schools? In shod, are vve assets, nonentities or liabilities in our conimunities? C. E. ANDKItSON.
