HOMEY PHILOSOPHY FOR 1922
Wc laugh at the millionaires when thcv waste their
time and energy gathering automobiles yachts diamonds
and other luxuries and then never use them They seem
to be satisfied because they have what they want As a
matter of fact they have what they dont want But they
find enjoyment in the battle for possession Come to
think of it were all about alike The greatest possession
of hunanity are high principle and ideals but there are
bunches of us that have both and never use either of them
Dormant aspirations have no more value than dead sea
fruit One kind act a day actually performed one thought
translated into accomplishment helps the world along
but unused principles just clog lip the wheels What
kindly act shall we do today
THE NEW VIEW OF FIRES
The old time way of regarding a fire was that the owner
of a burned building is tho victim of misfortune and if
entitled to public sympathy But many owners neglect
reasonable fire precaution so that a blaze may start
through their own carelessness In such cases t ey a it
not entitled to much pity
Many places are proving that the tremendous fire los
that helps waste the resources of the country can he
largely checked In Indianapolis for instance they
have had a fire prevention campaign and the fire los
was cut in 10 recent months from 1500000 to 900000
This was accomplished by securing the pledges of 40000
people to co operate in removing hazards also by speech
es delivered in civic meetings printing of fire prevention
literature in the newspapers etc The greater part of thr
fire loss of Safford could be wiped out if the public would
co operate heartily
o
THE REMOVAL OF EYESORES
A quite delicate community problem is created by nglj
buildings Most cities and towns have their share o
this type They often stand in conspicuous positions nen
motor routes or railroad lines They impress themselves
on visitors and give strangers the -idea that they are ei
tcring an ugly town
Some of these structures arc simply dingy and need
coat of paint An attractive color would work wonder
and would turn a decadent and dingy appearing neigh
borhood into one that looks alive and hopeful
In others the structure is rickety and tumble down and
needs either thoroughgoing repairs or else to be removed
altogether Yet the people who own such properties show
no sign of improving them and are not likely to do so of
their own accord
It seems as if the community had some rights in the
matter It is not fair that a pall of dinginess should be
thrown over a whole neighborhood and the appearance
of a whole town prejudiced by the lack of enterprise and
neatness of some person
Public sentiment has not yet reached the point vvlier
it would compel such an owner to improve his property
It may come to that some day But it would seem as if
some civic or business organizations shpuld remonstrate
with such a citizen and show him plainly that his neglect
ful sflirit is a damage to the entire community It should
be urged that an owner injures his own interest when he
allows run down buildings to stand unimproved and that
he could get a better return on them if he would brighten
them up or remove them and put up something worth
while jj

It will bo noted In the case of dairy
cattle 16 farmers prefer the Jersey
while 19 prefer Holstein Practically
all farmers who expressed a prefer
ence for Jerseys are located in that
section of the valley abovo Thatcher
while practically all those who pre
fer Holstein live in that section of
the county below Thatcher
In tho case of hogs and poultry
thoro was great difference of opinion
In all sections of the county as to
what breeds are most desirable
It Is to be regretted that more farm
ers did not reply so that somp pro
gress could be made In this work
which is very essential if tho farm
livestock business of the valley Is to
