The War and Ai
W1U the European war, by caufclng
on increased demand tor agricultural
producta, benefit the farms of this
country? It is by no means certain
that it will. '
The 8a-ing>5 bf tho world in One year
may amount to $500,000,000 or ?6,
090,000,000; the war Will dent roy that
amount of wealth in titree or four
months. Consider the resulting scarc
ity ot capital throughout the world,
tho consequent restriction of produc
tion, the diminished supply of labor,
the increase in the rate ot. interest
Farmers .cannot escape the effects of
auch economi? disturbances.
Supposo that most farm products do
advance: does it follow that there will
be a real inoreaso in profit to the far
mer? will farthers as a group lose
more than they gain on account of the
higher prices they must' pay tor every
thing they:buy?. Farmers are consum
ero as well sa producers:' they are
buyers as well as sellers, even ot ag
ricultural products.
Suppose that wheat goes to $1.50 or
$2-a bushel. How many tarma in ono
hundred raise wheat? Only twenty
three'. Consequently, seventy-seven
farmers moat pay' exorbitant prices
to twenty-three farmers A?B?? one of
tho principal articles. of jfUfod. Most
wheat f?rmere buy their flour from
tb,o merchant; they will nave to sur
render in that tray some of tho profit
that they may. receive for ungroudd
wheat. " : -,::; ' ' ' .
