' Residents of towns and cities everywhere are beginning to realize more acutely" the .fact that, except under very unusual 1 conditions, their ; communities, will prosper" and develop only in proportion to the 'prosperity and development that comes "to the 'farming sectipns..which .surround -.them.,: :Keal- Izing : this fact, .commercial clubs .and; .chambers of commerce have In recent : years "been 1 devoting as 'muchof their attention ' to '', developing 1 the cbuntty districts'as they hare to securing new industries and attracting new residents. They know that as the country about the towns' fcjecomes more .thickly settled and as tlte farmers become more prosperous the more money will:.'be'spent In the towns and -the faster -these -towns win grow. It Is largely for this reason that the .residents ofj the towns and cities • have-, been, dointf more, and more to aid the farmers in "growing bigger crops and In 'improving \ marketing conditions. The towns and. cities have contributed more and more liberally toward the building of good roads in the country districts and !hare paid a large; part of the, expense of maintaining agricultural experts to assist the farmers In growing bigger : crops and getting more money out of their crops when they are placed on'the'market. Not One-Sided Proposition. But this is not a one-sided proposition. If the city is dependent upon the country, so is the country dependent upon the city. What the farmer, raises is worth "absolutely nothing to him unless he can sell it at o price that will pay him a fair return on the money and time invested in its pro- clining to submit, domestic questions to dnction.

It was rejected, 44 to 36. The senate has now reached reservation No. 6 and the Lodge program still stands intact. FALSE COINAGE IS DOUBLED Chief Moraji of the Secret Service Bureau Asks Additional Funds to Nab Swindlers. Washington, March 3.—Counterfeiting hns doubled in the last six months, due to the. circulation of a greater number of government securities, including federal reserve notes, Chief W. H. Moraii of the sercret service told a house committee In asking for increased' appropriations for roundingj up counterfeiters. The raising of federal reserve notes is one of the most common acts of the swindlers, he said. U. S. STEAMER IS FIRED ON American Steamer Delight Arrives at Seattle From Vladivostok Scarred by Bullets. Seattle, Wash., March 3.—Officers of the American steamer Delight safd here troops fired upon their boat in Vladivostok harbor January 2, while she was unloading rifles. The Delight arrived, here with her superstructure scarred by bullets. The shots were fired, it was said, in an effort to halt the escape of a rebel leader, who had fled 'to a Russian ship. / most every case the, farmer Is dependent upon the near-by town or city for a market for at least his perishable products. In the language of .the street, it is a fifty-fifty proposition. - The town needs the country and the country needs the town. The farmer needs the assistance of the storekeepers of the town in securing a market for his products. He needs the assistance of the storekeepers of the town In getting good roads over which he may haul his products, without losing more time than the products are worth. Ho often needs the assistance of the storekeepers in helping him over a period of financial stringency. Storekeeper Needs Farmer's Trade. On the 1 other hand the storekeeper needs the business of the farmer. He does not ask the farmer to sell him his products on credit even though, at the he may be'hard pushed for cash and may need more credit badly. He does not ask the farmer to help hilni build a sidewalk in front of his store. He does not ask for the business of the farmer provided that he can sell the farmer the goods he needs at at low a price as he ca'n secure them for, elsewhere. But does he.always get the farmer's business? Ask the mail order man in the big city or ask the postmaster _ or the express agent in any town or j city in the .country. They could, II they would, tell of thousands of dollars sent away to the big cities to pay If or goods that could be purchased just as cheaply and much' more .conveniently in the nearest town, or city. These thousands of dollars, when sent to the mnii order houses in the big cities, never -come back. They do not help to build good roadS past the farmers' houses.
