Thero aro those who will romain in Iho ranks of the standpatters in both (ho Democratic nnd the Repub lican parlies, thrtso who havo been .inoculated with party loyalty and who in a large mcasuro lend stabil ity to (he parly and who aro the hulwarks of our liberties. Thero are those who havo no loy alty to any party, but who consider the worthiness of tho man and his platform, thus placing their sup port, forming a formidable Indo. pendent clement that a great many limosholds tho balances of power and therefore determines the suc cess of either of the two great par tios. To iho sfandpattors, (ho campaign propagunda will bo right, elso it would not go out under (he name of their parly, but (his samo propa ganda will bo shot rapid fire into tho ranks of tho Independent voters to gain their favor and secure their vole. The Independent voter must recognize (he responsibility ho or she owes to their community, coun ty and state, and in so doing, must not bo swayed from their determin ation to think straight and vote right by a lot of campaign bunk, but must bo guided by common sense in their decision to excrciso thoir inalienable right lo choose by bal lot (ho parly that has achieved a bright record in tho past, rather than tho rosy-hucd promise of tho futuro. No man or woman should vote without first taking into considera tion tho wclfaro of his state and county and should bo guided by facts. WASHINGTON COMMENT History is full of talcs of desper ate chancos which succeeded be cause some man was not afraid to lead. In America today exists a chanco, far from desperate and but waiting a great leader who will point tho way-Hwho will ho bo? Tho press- is full of "remedies" for the industrial unrest which re sults in strikes and lockouts. Edi torial after pililnrlnl explains that alt that Is nccilcd is a fuller under standing between capital and labor; a mutual forbearance, a playing each into the other's hand, a coop eration .between them for their mu tual advantage. All, it is explained, which is need ed is for somo grea.t corporation to lead the way nnd treat labor as some thing (o bo considered, consulted, profited, nnd helped, or sorao great body of labor to lead (ho way and instead of seeing how much they may exact from an employer and lot tho wages depend not on organiza tion and threats, but upon tho work dono and the spirit of cooperntion, That's all! But as yet the leader does not appear. No great corpor ation as yet fails to get the best of tho bargain if it can when making terms with labor. No labor organ Ization as yet has considered the employing interest beforo it's own. And if you-ask why, the answer is plain; because men are selfish, be cause men distrust each other, be cause experience has proved to each that neither is wholly to bo trusted. Then tho answer, tho real answor, is an inculcalion of a spirit of un selfishness, and a spirit of trust. In other words, all those who stand In church and admit the Fatherhood of God, must stand in factory, at bench, behind desk, in a bank, on farm, railroad ,and in mines, nnd practico the Brotherhood of Man. Then, and not until then, will the leader arise who will make capital and labor truly fraternal instead of opponents., ,f POULTHY B KINGS PROSPERITY TO .NEW MEXICO FARMERS If you believe that golden eggs Your Binder and Repairs HAVE C IY NOT Kt AND VENTER aidVut CHINRIS FORYM ÍE OF th BROTHER: NOW THAT YOU HAVE CORN UP AND ALL OTHER CHOPS COMINO ALONG WIIV NOT OIVE THE HARVESTING MACHINERY THE ONCE OVJik AND GET THE REPAIRS NOW.

OF GOOD SERyTCE TO FARMER. are a myth, ask Mr. and Mrs. Sweet who live near Molroso, in Curry county, New Mexico, about it. How two hundred sotting eggs grow into oighloen hundred dollars worth of poultry and eggs sold, a modern poultry plant and a flock on hand valued at Í 1,000 is tho story told by their financial record, and this all happened In a Httlo ovor two years, loo. Tho Sweets aro natives of Michi gan, but havo lived in this stato long "Hough lo recognize its superior cli matic advantages for raising poul try. Then, too, they realized that tho growing of grain sorghums for shipment entailed a great deal of la bor, and a curtailed income. So, af ter discussing tho matter, thoy do rided to take a chanco at the poul try gamo. In tho spring of IffiO, eggs from purebred while leghorn flocks wero purchased and about two hundred chicks hatched and brought to ma turity. Ono hundred and fifty of (heso wero pullets old enough (o begin laying in the fall of 1020. Ear ly in 1931 a good incubator was purchased and the season closed witli a flock of about 450 laying hens nnd pullols. A few turkeys were also produced that season Hint were sold (o advanlago that fall and win ter. Old buildings wero converted into well arranged hen houses with tho help of a liltlo new lumber and suit able pens and enclosures of poultry were provided. In tho winter of 1021-22 .when sufficient encourage ment had been realized from the enterprise, a neat, partially under ground concrete hatching house was built, additional incubator capacity provided, and an acetylene gas plant installed in the incubator room. With this new cqulpmcnl, tho poul try flock has been enlarged, so that In spitn of a serious loss by theft and severe culling, tho enterpris ing Sweet poultry firm is going into Iho winter season with a thousand laying hens and pullets and two nun dred turkeys. A regular and satisfactory outlet for all eggs is had at 5 and 10 cents per dozen abovo current local pric es. This is made possible only thru the production of infertilo eggs and handling them as they should be handled, which includes proper cull ing for grade, keeping them cool and shipping at frequent intqrvals. When asked what they thought of the poultry industry and; what they valued their present flock at, the Sweets answered in ohorus, "But for tho poultry we would havo been forced lo leave the farm after this trying and somewhat disastrous crop year. The flock is not for sale at any price, but wo havo a good New Mexico farm wo would gladly give for vnothcr flock like this one. Many insects spend their wlnlors hibernating under trash and in the soil near tho surface. Fall plowing whoro tliis is feasible, and a thoro cleaning up of all trash will do much to help keep them in check during tho coming year. quito satisfactorily resumed under tho terms of tho Cleveland agree ment. The statement soys: "Tho limiting factor is Iho supply of soft coal has now become transporta tion. It is true that some thousands of miners aro still on strike, notably in tho ConnellsviUo and Kanawha districts, but tho tonnnco offered for shipment by tho other minos at work will aosoro mo available trans portation faollllios. Tho demand for coal is activo and tho prices aro high. Under such conditions coal is offered for shipment up lo tho limit of tho ability of tho railroads lo carry it," Shortly before tho mid dle of Seplembor tho Survey found the present rale of production is 9,000,000 tons a week. In tho cor responding period of 1920, tho aver ago was U,7DO,000 tons." Lator ro ports rocoived, which aro not entire ly offloial, show a marked increaso in mining over the statement given out by (ho Survey. Foreign Commerce for July Tho July statement of tho foroign trado of the United States shows tho total imports to havo been S262,128- 207, as against 9178,159,15.1 for tho samo month of 1921. Tho seven months ended with July, 1922, show ed tho imports to havo been 81,071,- 535,975 as compared with $1,498,633,- ISl for the same period last year. Tho oxport record shows (ho total domestic, exports for July (o have been 8290,1351,000 added (o which was $1,001,502 of foreign merchandise ex ported. This amounted to 318,710,309 and tho foreign merchandise export, ed was $0,470 709.

In a recent bulletin issued by the Department thero appeared tho following: "Trade Associations and individual manufacturers should net wail for nil invitation from tho Department, to cooperate with tho Chemical Division. The Division is beginning to function, and has been established for the sole purpose of faelitating contact between the De partment and tho Chemical industry. We want Irado associations and in dividual manufacturers in I he chem ical industry to feel that they can lay thoir problems boforo the div ision with the knowledge (hat their confidences will bo respected." Adjournment of Congress During recont yoars tho multi plying problems that face congress mnku it neenssary that both legis lativo bodies remain in almost con tinuous session. A quarter of a cen tury ago a senator or representa tivo found (hut the public business could be enrriod through in six months for the "long session" and Hirco mouths for (ho "short session." In other words, Congress was in ses sion about nine months out of two years. This line been lengthened to about twenty months out of two years. Even at (hat there is always a lot of important matter shoved over for a later day that should como up at times liko the present when the fall elections aro at hand. The great problem of tho prosont congress has concerned the tariff. Tho old theory of protection to in fant industries and the regulating of competition by means of tho tar iff has been replaced by new conditions- In consequence of the ne cessity of applying new methods, or new principles, lo tho determination of most matters in connection with Ihe framing of the tariff bill, it has taken more than a year and a half to frame a new law. Tho champions of Ihe idea that the tariff is wholly wn eeonunio question and should be largely di orced from the political methods which dominate tariff making, aro (Continued on page MEN'S SUITS Every Suit sold by treu saiismciory. i no our biggest advortlscmen SUIT PRICKS ?22..'.l B.
