The Grist Mill Returns old-time grist mill seems to be returning to the Amer- fgcpiicati landscape once more. Ah eastern newspaper commented the other day on the •a'ct'tjiat in many places, especially in the south and south- feist, farmers are adopting their grandfathers' custom of staking their grain to a little neighborhood mill, getting it Sharps and Flats A Department In Which The Editor of T>e Star Plays His Own Piano into flour or meal> and returning it to the family ^'cupboard. •jjfcujnr * — . I , , It is a long time since the grist mill has cut much of a fcfigure in American life. In the old days, of course, it had a ^ place. It'was, the center of innumerable frontier com-? ^nities, and the bread that the farmer ate was made from Sgrgin he raised. "'* jLately/-though, the grist mjll had become a picturesque In. Almost every small town in the south and rm'ddle west d as its mementoofbygone days a tumble-down structure, apidly falling into, decay, by some ancient millpond ori the. ' ge of town. The railroad and: the big flour will piished the ist'iniH almost entirely"but of the picture. itjs coming back now, oven in a small measure, it is . [y due to the depression; but insa lot of ways it is an tremely sensible step for the farmer to take. ,,,, The average wheat grower never so/much as sees a y fjgur mijl. He sen.ds his grain to the market and buys his flour at the nearest grocery store: and when wheat prices are " ?wn—as they are, most of the time—he suffers. - f~ Suppose, though, that there is a grist mill in the neighborhood. The farmer, then, not. only is producing a cqm- sjjhqdity for the, market; he is raising the very grain that he H«atid his family eat, and they will have plenty of bread even if ' """* bo#om falls out of the wheat market. ., Perhaps, in a time when agricultural distress seems J(Vdeeply rooted and of endless extent, the country could use the " > old-fashioned grist mill to a pratty good advantage. Getting Into'New Lines 'EAR Arkadelphia the Ozan-Graysonia lumber plant is closed. The plant has sawed its last log. Several hundred •Trpeople were on the scene when the last log,was sawed into " lumber. The dismantling of the mill followed. This was one of the big mills of Arkansas. Hundreds -of millions of feet of lumber had been sawed in that village, where wprkmen were employed by the •former years the lumbering industry .among its most important lines. On the face of that it looks ba.d for the section around Arkadelphia—but Arkansas is resourceful. The lumber is gone from the hills and valleys. The lumber demand isn't w]fmt it used to be. Neither is the supply. But there is. something else under that cut-over land, - The geologists have found cinebar deposits. Cinebar is the raw product from which mecury, or quicksilver is made. There is always demand for this. The lumber company intends to direct its forces to get- tmg piit the cinebar deposits, and manufacturing mercury The cp'mBany owns the land, and has the capita Ito operate on A new industry sets up where another has passed out. jt is a resourceful state indeed that can offer such opportunities. Under average conditions this passing lumber industry would lea,ye $ gap. There would be a void. In Ar: fcansa,s, things are different, _ We talk much about the resources of this state, but we don't know half the story. A year ago we didn't know any- filing about these cinebar deposits. Now we Know that the 1 m wmaterial is in the ground in paying quantities. • • Tile Story of the closing of the Ozan-Graysoma plant, am converting it into a manufacturing plant for mercury is a atorj* t h »t would be beneficial if tojd to the world. It is the pV<jpf in f»ct of what we ha,ye claimed for Arkansas all these years. Undevelopment resources—that has been our theme ~~ " js more proof to sustain the claim.— Hot Springs hundreds. In the of Arkansas was Because one man forgot to look, the Western World was a hundred years late learning the art of printing. I was talking last week in Sharps and Flats about the visit of Marco Polo to the court of Kubilai Khan, Mongol emperor. Marco Polo was a great traveler and a fine romancer. He chummed around with the overlord of China, -Mongolia and all Asia,, and came home to Venice to tell his fellow Italians all about it. But in reciting to the Europeans • all. the wonderful things that the Chinese had,.he proved to be a terrible numbskull—he looked-at their printing and forgot to look at' their type. -Frqfc C, T. Currelly .of Toronto, Canada, writing In the current issue of Editor & Publisher, tell us about it: "When Marco Polo returned to Venice in 1295,.he described paper notes for 1,000 cash, but neglected to explain how they were printed, how the Chinese printing-presses worked. Had he done so, the art of printing would have been introduced to Europe much earlier than it eventually cqme and civilization would have been many decades in advance of what it is today." The professor certainly found Marco Polo to be a disgraceful reporter. Mr. Polo has often been accused of being a cheerful Ha,r—but here's one time he passed up something that was true. Here's what the world missed because Marco Polo forgot to look at the Chinese printing presses: The Italian returned home to Venice in 1295, and it was nwre than a century later that a German invented moveable type. He was Johannes Gutenberg (1398-1468). What's a century more or less? Just this. The world was about to be shaken by the Protestant Reformation. It might have started in Italy when Girolamo Savonarola (14521498) raised the standard of revolt against the established church. But Savonarola, thought he moved the women of Italy to tears and persuad- ed them to cast their fine Jewels into a great bqn-fire, had not the support of a free press^-and eventually the church tortured and hanged him. Between the time that Savonarola preached and perished and Martin tuther (1483-1546) came .along, Gutenberg ifi his laboratory at Mainz had Jound the secret of -making cheap books. In Luther's time-a -reformer had the additional backing of printed tracts—and with the aid of the .pr;n.t- ing press Martin Luther /overturned Europe. • '';, America was set.tled by. Protestants forced out of Europe during the religious wars. But if . the printing press had been introduced by. Marco Polo in 1298 instead of^by Guteilbarg about 1450, the Reformation might have been accomplished by Savonarola instead of by Luther—and America might have been settled a generation earlier thari U actually was. ; \ .- All because an ' Italian romancer, studying a Chinese baflk note \60U years ago, was thinking about mo& instead of the invention that turned it out.

Shorter Work Periods rajl unions' demand for a six-hour day will probably 4 evoke horrified shrieks from the die-hards who fail to ?eal&e that tjie world h&s moved since the invention of the steam engine; but it is interesting to note that almost sim- qJtaaeously the Magazine of Wall Street printed an article far more radical in tone than the union manifesto. "It is perhaps too early," says the article, "to say that one of the definite results, of the depression is to be a 5-day work week, or a 4-day work week, but it is by no means too early to say that there is every indication that we shall emerge witfc a profound readjustment of the whole work life of the nation on swrae new basis of fewer hours of work per , per week and per year ---- There S unemployment into leisure." so cojsejvstav* m WWR *» * can talk* like \m, It I? > oWous i ceased to BMPlf 0* t no other way to Magazine of Wall a demand for short radical.
