It is an appealing phrase for the reason that men generally recognize its justice. Opinions may differ as to what corstitutes a living wage, and it is inevitable perhaps, that there should be disputes now and then between the man who works and the man who pays but few persons have the hardihood to deny the labor er's right to a decent home, with sufficient food for himself and his family, education for his children, and a bit left over to the prudent for a rainy day. The standard of income, it should be remembered, is not alone the right of the organized industrial work er. It is the right of every work er. The farmer is entitled to it. He should and does insist upon it, and he should be willing to concede it, not only to the city laborers, but to those who help him in his farming operations, whether hired hands or members of his own family. Those who will not pay the living wage can not themselves expect to receive it. This was made clear last year when farmers producing low-priced crops under high cost condi tions, were unable to keep the factories running, and the city worker found himself out of a job. The farmer did not get a living wage, and things went wrong. The business world learn ed its lesson and neither the bus iness world or the farmer should forget that lesson now when wage disputes are rife. It is a good time to remember the Golden Rule. Its practical application is easy, even though it may seem to be difficult. Every work er should have a living wage, whether he is employed in city or country. The workers who as a class are a drag upon the country, and menace. The men wrho get more than a living wage are tak ing their surplus out of the poc kets of some other class, The funeral of the late Mrs. Joseph Hollenbeck was held on Tuesday last a,t the brick church in Valley Centre. Mrs. Hollenbeck died at the home of her daughter, Mrs. George Ross at Armada. For the past thirty years she had liv ed in and around Valley Centre. She was a kind and loving mother and a good neighbor and will be greatly missed by all who knew her. The Independent Sugar com pany at Marine City, owned and operated by the Messrs. Handy Bros., at Bay City, was adjudged bankrupt in the federal court at Detroit last Saturday. No state ment as to the assets and liabili ties are, available. This action probably means that the farmers will get considerably less than 100 cents on the dollar for last year's crop of beets, which has not yet been paid for. The annual indoor convention of flies is beiner heeld here now an many a man has brought to light cuss phrases that were unknown in balmy days when the flies liv ed comfortably out doors. In our office, especially, we notice, the nre?cnce of mat y insec's that. never were here before. The liq uid insecticide we use rums tn?. furniture and dust we b'.ow in the air gives us a headache. If the pesky things don't go away we'll be driver to start polar expedition. Lexington News.
