An example of half- truth cited »as the assurance to im inquiring farmer that he need not worry about vast governmental expenditures, for the government would not tax his land to raise the money. Wallaces' Farmer did not tell him that lie would have to pay his share just the same iu other ways. The editor's own criticism of the editorial in question does not go to the argument, which he still thinks irrefutable; but he feels that it might well have been written in more restrained fashion, and he admits long nnd lively admiration of the Wallaces, their journal, and the editorial management which is carrying pu in the absence of the editor-in-chief. cial is sick, and that more deflation will cure it; inflationists 'believe also that the body social is iek, 'but tihat it is sick because of deflation, and they propose to give inflation to cure the disease. When Editor Was Silent, Why do men Ihowl about rugged individualism? It is because they love liberty or love >the people? Or is it because they love profits and ihope to leave the way open so they may become Rockefellers— in short, absorb the earnings of others?. Are these 100 per cent Americans the true blue? Are they calling meetings and denounc- cing all principles other than their own because they love the people? 'Some years back, when it took more than a half column in the Advance to give the transfers of farms for a single week, I didn't see any editorials on the trutih and 'honor of that road practice. When for more than two years the banks ihad to advertise Dh'at they were sound, there wasn't a soul, not even an editor, wlro dared tell the truth. If anybody ihad told it ihe would probably have been marched down to a cell antl cooped up with Iris truth. Misbach and the Fanner. Joe Misbach says we are drawing on the future in the recovery program, but the Advance didn'l call that a half truth. Joe didn't say the war ever drew upon the 'uture, nor that our new schoolhouse, our swimming pool, or our road bonds drew on the future. But Joe'.s saying was put in boldfaced type because it wasi the whole truth! Joe didn't say we were in this debt strife because we had drawn on the future; ihe omitted that truth. But just -look how the cat jumps! Here is Mr. Farmer, who talked to Joe, and who also got bold-faced type. Mr. Farmer is reported to have said he liked the corn loan, but disliked the corn- hog plan. Now just think of that! Mr. Farmer likes to ihave corn raised 400 per cent, but when asked to help sustain that price says let George do it! How much truth is there in that man? Patterson and the Truthi You can say a man is true to his principles, but you can't always say his principles are true. In fact it is a pretty hard matter to discover principle isometimes. Yet the very man who disagrees friend, and companion. A man doesn't Ticotl to beliove as I do, or you do, to bo all that. Hut it is certain that we are K'-tting too much wisdom and too little relief: much wisdom in pro- dur.tion and accumulation, too little in knowing w.hat to do with our riches. . «"o. W. Pat.tRrf.-on says (die national government insisted that Iowa had to do her part to care for unemployment, or the national government would have backed out of Iowa (somewhat. What is tOio truth about thisi? Is not Iowa the garden spot, of agriculture? Have we not plenty and to spare? Yet s not Iowa only one of 48' states states cursed by unemployment? Senator Dickinson Too. While Mr. Hoover was still pres- dent, 'Senator -Dickinson said Iowa did not need aid for unemployment. The -plan then was to have each stale, city and county care Cor its own unemployed. Possibly that was truth. Anyway people who couldn't live under that truth could die or move away. But we are not now following the course of each section providing for its own unemployment, and a permanent remedy is sought for unemployment. Why there is unemployment we need <not inquire. The administration is trying to remedy conditions. Among men selected to help is Henry Wallace. He has repeatedly said our country can follow either nationalism or internationalism. Wallaces' Farmer has never advocated either, Rather, Uiat ipapcr has given its readers both sides. Tribute to the Wallaces. Years ago when Uncle Henry Wallace edited the paper he advocated the gold standard as against bimetallism; but I ihave not seen! an editorial in Wallaces' Farmer during this entire debacle of debt land ruin which advocated a currency policy. That journal has confined itself to support of measures intended to relieve not only farmers but the entire nation. Whether itihe measures undeir- taken were good or bad is not now of moment in the quest for truth. The question is, should Wallaces' Farmer be silent, or should it aid in putting plans of recovery into execution? And if its management stands for maes- FAUJTK11S WlfJ, 1IAVK TO PAY TlIKTIl SHARK [Humboldt Independent.] Wallaces' Farmer assures its renders that they have no reason to fear that governmental expenditures will ever be met from a tnx on real estate. It points out Hint the government does not get its money that way. And still this should not lessen the average citizen's anxiety about extraordinary government expenditures. Just because you live on n farm you can not feel yourself exempt from the government's extravagance. Every tax levied on business means just that much more cost added to business overhead. If a factory is assessed $100,000 tuxes n year, those taxes have to come out of Tom, Dick, and Harry on the farms nnd elsewhere. What many people cannot understand is that every expenditure forced on any portion of our population comes back to consumers. The farmers form a very largo portion of the consumers of our nation. FLAG HISTORY IS STUDIED BY FOUR CORNERS SOCIETY Four Comers, May 22—The F. C. Mothers/ & Daughters club met last Thursday with Mrs. Edna Mitchell, Mrs. Jessie Elm-ore ures that To _ of the administration, is stand for the American, Carmer is a religion of the Wallace family. Some persons may snort at this statement, tout if they do let them ask themselves whether it is truth, partisanship, or profit which produced the snort. Time for All to Cooperate. To say tihat Wallaces' Farmer is no longer reliable as a farm .paper toecause of its political affinities is to libel a family tihat has taken more chances for the American farmer than it da thanked for. Every farmer, laborer, or business man depending on 'Mae farmer should sustain recovery measures, not lie down in the ihamess and let George do it. Doubtless all small businesses, including printing establishments, have felt inconvenience and loss under NRA, but corrections are in progress, proper and we all feel that in cases corrections are due. If at is charged a lengthy treatise, I am offering my excuse is the same as Mike offered when his teacher told him to quit scratching hia head. Mike replied, won't, Miss; -tihey began on me first."

I would like to go fishing if I can ever get this business tamed down so I can leave it for a week. A couple of my fanner friends want me to go north when they go and I hope I can. When we do go we are going to take our wives along. In fact we will take our own drinking and eating with us, so we will have nothing to Jook around for except fish. But before I go I will have to sell enough to pay my note at the bank. I have a few ladies' wash dresses left.

Baragins for everybody at Neville's Shoe Store ALGONA, IOWA. Lumber is, and always has been, one of mankind's greatest friends. In the early days of our race was it not the forest that provided man with his first weapons of defense, the war club and the bow and arrow? The forest also gave to man his first means of transportation, the dug-out canoe and the rumbling, rambling cart; fore-runners of the steamship, the automobile, the railroad, and the airplane. Lightning striking a tree, revealed to man for the first time that bringer of warmth and comfort, the fire. Trees provided men with their first shelters. And the Good Book reveals that a fig tree was the emporium from which Eve selected her first pair of brilliantly colored step-ins. Lumber, and the forest, today continue to play an important part in every American life. We still take our first journey into the world in a wicker baby buggy and o.ur last ride is a wooden box. Man today arises from a wooden bed, eats his meal from a wooden table, and for the most part dwells in wooden houses. And each evening the World and his wife sit down in wooden chairs before a wood fire and read books, the paper of which is made from pulp wood. We are proud to be in the business of selling lumber and building material to the people of our community. These things go towards making better and happier homes and in selling them we feel we are rendering—just as all men who work with wood render—a service that makes America a better nation in which to live. We hope you will remember us when you need building materials. F. S. NORTON & SON PHONE 229 DRINK WATER WITH MEALS Q?GOOD FOR STOMACH Water with meals helps stomach Juices, aids digestion.
