It Is desirable to have the shed buUt tight and equipped with does fitting doors to keep out sun light, rein, snow and dust and to prevent ■ chickens from getting into the building. The design of the shed should be such that machinery can be put In end tekeu out easily. In addition, the shed should be so located that no 'time end labor will be lost In getting back end forth between It end the fields. A third point Is that the abed must be used by the farmer. since no money will be saved If the Implements ere left standing outside the building. Aalde from saving machinery, a good Implement shed adds to the efficiency of the farm by providing favorable working conditions so that repairs, overhauling and adjustments can be mads la the winter when both time end cheep labor are available to do such wosk. Indirect advantages which add to th# value of shedding machin ery are the saving In time required to Umber up the machines and the fewer delays at critic-: times from the breaking of a pert mated or weak-' ened by exposure. Widespread Distribution of Wealth Big Factor V in Stability of Country | By WILFORD I. KING, National Economic Research Bureau. Whether wealth k widely distributed or instead concentrated in the hands of the few is a matter of great significance from a political stand out These who possess the wealth of a nation are, oftentimes, its real zulem The foot is generally Ttcognised that the country in which most •( the, wealth is in the hends of the few, while the great majority of the people are prepertylsas, is one in which it is easy to incite the inhabi tants to ■ resolution, for under such circumetances the masses feel that they bars little to loaa.through any political upheaval that may occur.

F, P. GOODWIN, Episcopal Rural Church Worker. THB. old-fashioned idea of the “Godleae city" has been reversed, and il k now the “Godless country,” if statistics on the religion of those two1 great American groups are to be accepted. Country people, who for a long time were considered a sim ple and religious lot of folk, have slumped in their religious status. Eighty-eight per cent qf the members of the Episcopal church are in the mrbah 'group of the American population, while only 17 per cent are found in the country or rural group. Out of more than 65,000,000 persons living in rural America, lew 11,000,000 art member* of any religious body. The old-fashioned idee that the country folk are simple and religious peepVv sad that they more than make up for the lack of religion in the Qedlesa citioa kao held swey for many years. We have not realized how raral^Ui* today has changed. Improved roads, advanced methods of farming, automobiles and mors recently the radio have forced such institutions as the rural school to change to moot these eeaditions while the rural church still tries to ta&etian along thpald liaeo aad follow ancient and out-of-date methods.

It may be that after it has warmed up to normal running tem perature, the new adjustment will prove satisfactory.

Six Grade Crossings on Lincoln Way Are to Go Officials of the Union Pacific Rail road company have reached an agree ment with the Nebraska state high way department which will perinlt the straightening of the Lincoln highway between Columbus and Grand Island In such a way as to eliminate six of the seven grade crossings now on the transcontinental route between the two cities. Four of the crossings which are to he eliminated are In Platte county and two In Merrick county. The one re maining grade crossing over the Union Pacific tracks will be in Columbus and later a viaduct or underpass will jlrob abl.v have to be constructed. The three-year program outlined by the Lincoln Highway association of Nebraska, headed by George F. \Volz, state consul for the national associa tion, includes the construction of via ducts or underpasses on the Lincoln way and the Union Pacific railroad in Fremont, Grand Island and North Platte, as well as Columbus. It is un derstood that this program has the enthusiastic backing of State Engineer Roy Cochran. Work on the straight ening of the Lincoln highway was started this spring. PRATER LOCALS Since our Hast report, a good citizen of our burg, has had a serious accident. Mr.J.H.Raines mule ran away with him and and broke or dislocated his right arm at the elbow joint making him unable to work. J.C.Raines returned homef Friday, after a stay of 10 days at Grundy, Virginia. Rev. A.J .Wolford anj.' others held service at the ‘nome of Robert Yates on little Prater. The congregation was well be haved and gave excellent at tention to the service thruout. We are informed that work began this morning on the bridge at mouth of War Fork. The wet weather keeps our new road in almost impassable condition. We are sorry to note so many correspondents failed to report last week. We certainly enjoyed the Big Prater locals. Come again that is the right spirit. I hope the other correspon dents will get through with the rush of work Or get back home so we can hear from the differ ent points of the Compass.

THOROUGHBREDS Man—through care, scien tific breeding and traininjt has made the horse the noblest, most beautiful and most intel ligent of all animals. The thor oughbred is a living monument to the ingenuity of man upon which man, although it is his own modeling, can not gaze without awe and admiration. Why do men and women go to the race track and the circus? Is it to gamble at one and to see the clowns and acrobats at the other? Those are the attrac tions for many, but vastly more are lured there by desire to see the sleek coats, classic heads and fine proportions of finely trained and wdll-bred horses. The thoroughbred horse is the favorite illustration of the proponents of eugenics, which ,is only scientific breeding ap plied to the human race. They point out that man demands thoroughbred horses, cattle, sheep,dogs and cats and they dream of a Utopia— such as H. G.Wells dtscribes-in which men and women will be thorough breds, mgntailly, morally and physically. None will gainsay that most, if not all, of society’s ills spring from those who are subnormal mentally, morally or physically. Normal men and women are not found in the jails,asylums, san atoriums and poor houses. But doesn’t the fact, that only a small portion of civilized man is deficient mentally, mcrd’ly or physically, indicate that humanity was well along on the breeding of horses, for while he long before the first eugenic invented a title for himsdjf ? Man cannot apply to himself the same laws of directed pro pagation he observes in the breeding of horses,for while is master of the lower animals he is not yet complete master of himself. Europe Getting Together. Excessive trade beariers in Eu rope have claimed the attentior of the International Economic Conference meeting in Geneva. It is being found out that smal countries—some of them no lar ger than a good sized county in the Unit<-d States—can not exisi by shutting off trade with one another, which tariffs were not :mposed so much for commercial purposes as for political expedi ency and because of international rivalry. The tariffs, besides be ing excessive, are not scientific ally administered. In fact they are not tariffs: they are contriv ances throttling to the flow of commerce. Europe must first gel together if it expects to look to the Western world for peace. The recommendation of the Eco nomic Conference is a hopeful sign of progress. The Psychology Of War is a pecular thing. A German sea cap tain, on a good-will tour around the world, stopped at San Fran cisco not long ago. He called on the Mayor who during the World war had shipping interests. The genial mayor dined the captain and treated him cordially, even after being told by the captain that the later had been instru mental in sinking two of the mayor’s ships in 1918. We have the word of the captain for this, but regardless of accuracy of the report, the incident shows how views can change from times of war to times of peace. Probably the mayor figures that v hat’s gone is gone, and the captain reasons that what’s sunk might as well be talked about. WANTED.

One manufac turer of machines reports the sale of more than 700 last summer ‘n Kansas, Ohio Repair Program la to Cost Immense Amount Of upwards of $25,000,000 to be spent this year on Ohio’s state liisri ways, approximately $9,000,000 will b expended for maintenance and repair including resurfacing and widening, which brings forcibly to the minds of the highway engineers that there Is no such thing as a permanent road. Eternal vigilance is the price of a good highway, road engineers have found, and no matter what the type constant attention and repeated re pairs are necessary. Continued fret'* ing and thawing during the past win ter have placed an extraordinary strain on the highway pavements, ac cording to State Highway Director Schlesinger, and much work will he required before many of the high ways will be In first-class condition for summer travel. Many of the pave ments must be patched and many cracks must be tilled. Of the $14,000,000 or $15,000,000 to be spent on new construction this year, part of the money will come from the state, part from the federal government and part from the coun ties. K— Wisconsin Police Teaches Drivers Chief of Police W. E. O’Con nor of Juneau, Wls., has de vised a scheme all his own to Impress upon motorists the Im portance of arterial stop signs. He compels offending drivers to take another try at the arterial, making a complete stop in ac cordance with the traffic ru’es. The plan is said to be effective, and the first day the chief had numerous tourists and local drivers taking the same route twice through the city’s main street. No arrests were made.
