If we as a people can leran from experience, without having to be hit on the brad with a panic and bard times, the recent slight depression in this country should have taught its lesion. t When industry slowed up, jobs became scarcer just enough scarcer so that no one was really hurt but enough to make a sensible man think and realize that any movement or any agitation which interferes with normal industrial activity strikes lu st and hardest at the Nvorking man. As farm prosperity returns more me i have jobs not only on the farms but in all lines of industry. A man who works in a sawmill or a mine should realize that bis job depends on prosperity in other lines of business which use the product he produces. The brakeman or engineer on a freight train should realize that his job depends on "the other fellow" who makes an article for transportation. If we pull together as a nation success awaits tis. If we fight among oi selves we court hard times and failure. The work of the commitee of experts to formulate a business-like program for settlement of the allied reparations tangle, further emphasizes the value of team work a-lor.g constructive lines. This committee figured out such a practical plan that it will be adopted, on account of its sanity and simplicity. After five years of European intrigue and jealousy, plain every day business sense and honesty had to win out over political inefficiency. The people of Europe have suffered five long years to learn their lesson namely that one nation cannot profit at the expense of another. Thus do we see intelligence finally conouering ignorance. How long individuals or nations sufter during the "process of edueatiorr" depends upon their abiity to learn from observation and escape the severe lessons which experience gives to those who refuse to learn otherwise. The American people have only a bright future before them if they stand for the sqiare deal policy which will assure continued agricultural and industrial activitv. lawing war and resulted not only in halting an orgy of battleship construction which presaged greater war, but it turned the world-mind from thoughts of war to thouehts of peace. It was an accomplishment when rightly appraised that will illumine the pages of history for all time, for it set inerTaceably the seal of condemnation on the adjudication of national differences by military arbitrament and turned the dynamic thought of the world from war to peace. What an inspiring thought that War, the most destructive of all monsters, is itself to be destroyed! WAGES COMING IN AND GOING OUT. Today the hourly earnings of building labor are by far the highest in any industry in the United States. The hourly wages in seventeen of the building crafts are 100 per cent higher than in 1014. The cost of building, of course, reflects the cost of homes and the cost of living generally. This opens up a field of inquiry that reveals almost startling facts. Cashington figure sharks tells us that 8(3 per cent of the persons gainfully employed in the United States receive incomes of 2,000 a year or less a great many of them less. The same figure experts then point out that rents for moderate-priced accommodations such as are used by the average wage-earner, are So per cent higher than they w ere in 1914. Followed to its logical result this means more skimping on the part of the housewife, more limitation to the comfort of children, less pleasure, fewer clothes, and a general tightening up all around. Of course, the shortage of labor plays its part in this condition, which in turn is aggravated by our immigration laws. On the surface the condition appears to be a splendid one for the American worker, but even he is coming to learn that natural law is inexorable and that he must pay the piper. ii i - ii POLITICAL REASONING o' M'LADY. Political leaders in all sections of the country ' are exhibiting growing alarm over the trend of our women voters toward independence. The story is told in the formation of thousands of clubs and leagues of women voters. The fair sex proposes to strike out for independent thought and action. She believes that the natural Warfare of the sexes makes it imperative for her to weld herself into a political factor along lines entirely separate from those that govern the men. Most of these women's clubs are in more or less embryo state, dealing for the most part with the thousand and one sideshows that decorate the political arena, but as the politicians see it the greatest present danger lies in their inclination to support candidates rather than parties or principles. The general character of candidates has a marked bearing on any appeal to the feminine vote. The split ticket split often into the finest splinters is the final result. Here and there the more experienced women are influnced by avowed inn Some of our best men have come from an obscure parentage, which does not change the fact that people resemble plants whose vital qualities are underground . Our first question when some one achieves fame is, to whom does he belong? The old proverb that "blood tells" is a matter of obseiwation that the characteristics of forefathers are reproduced in their descendants. The tie of blood relationship is a close and vital one.

If they don't care for anyone else following them, they leave the grounds with rubbish scattered a-bout and campfire smoldering. But they should be as considerate for others as they would want others to be for them. Rubbish should be cleared up, burned or buried in a ditch which should be covered over.

Altogether it looks as though the farmer and his family were about to have their innings, with lower prices for what they buy and fair prices for what they sell.

That will be the solid basis upon which to build up permanent prosperity for all workers. Trustee's Notice.
