There are in the United States about 30,000,000 farmers, and they constitute ten per cent of the entire populntion. The value of their an- nual products is approximately $10,- 000,000,000, or $1,000 for each farm- er. The liquor interests claim that should prohibition prevail the farm- ers will be deprived of their market for this large amount of produce. ' There is another side to this ques- tion. Mr. Charles Stelzle has made a careful study of the situation. He says: \The liquor industry purchases every year about $100,000,000 worth of produce from the farmer, and therefore the liquor industry con- sumes just one per cent of all that the farmer produces, that is, $10 for each farmer in the United States. The question is, what will the 'poor farm- er' do with his $10 worth of produce which tha liquor industry cannot pur- chase when it is put out of business? There are over 20,000,000 families in the United States which would pur- chase the stuff now sold to the liquor men. According to a study made by the department of labor of the United States, the average workingman's family spends annually about $500 for food. This would make a total ef at least $10,000,000,000 per year for the 20,000,000 families. \If the 20,000,000 families were each to increase their purchasing power one per cent, or $5 per year, it would amount to exactly $T00,000,000—the sum of the liquor men's purchases from the farmer. But let us assume that tha retail figure at which the av- erage family would be compelled to buy is twice as high as the liquor men pay. This would increase the amount necessary to be purchased to $10 per year for each family, or about twenty cents per week. There can be no doubt that, with the increasing earning power and spending ability of fyie average workingman's family due to the abolition of the liquor traffic, the average family will easily wish to spend at least twenty cents more per week for cherries, peaches, apples, ber- ries and the various forms of grain, to say nothing about flour and bread and other materials which come primarily from the farm.\ Editor To Speak His Piece \Blowin' off the huill year To-und in : thaiL paper o' yourn, I don't «ee wlhiait you meed of a mee'iin.' to Ige t rid of any more toot air,\ said a friend when we announced our in- tenldoii, of addressing a meeting this week Saturday evenimg in the Madrid Opera Houwe.

Besides, al'dicnDghi the Socialist campaign .speakers of this State have been drawn large- ly'to New York City by thsi labor troubled chore, it has seemed to uid that this 19lti campaign i n Mad- rid 'dhould not x>a&s without one Socialist meeting. And this will be tout a begiaming of campaigning With, the writer, for, when, business cones allow, wonshiail go out da the atuimp more ana more, in ohecause whoso call is -to ua the, clarion call of duty and in the cause which en- igages ouu' life's one grand pasiaion.

The \i^ood man\ idea is preifcry Well difldrodlfcoid toow in 'aur poll'dca Wanting a good man for mayor, and a man bearing the respect of everybody, the Republicans of Ogdeusburg nomi. nated Frank D. Wallace of the St. Lawrence Wholesale Grocery Co., a man of deep Methodist religious con- victions and a mai known by all as an unusually conscientious and clean citi- zen. Mr. Wallace protested against even being considered for the nomina- tion and then declined it when mado. Prominent men pleaded with him to- reconsider his declination, but he re- mained firm, even when lie was assured privately by Democrats of their support, thus practically conceding his election. Mr. Wallace says that he is a Prohi- bitionists and not a Bepublioan; that he will not desert the party he has lined up with for twenty-five years forja mere offl • and that for him to accept the Eopublicau nomination would mean for him to go back on his life record of opposition to the Eepublicau party because of its attitude toward the liquor traffic. Mr. Wallace nowis the nominee of the Prohibition Party for mayor and probably will receive a small vote. None but narrow and unfair partioans will condemn Mr. Wallace. By his manly stand he has avoided the sus- picion of seeking office, and, what is far greater, he has put the temperance Bepublicans and Democrats of Ogdeus- burg o'l trial, it now is for them to show by their votes whether they think more of principle than of party, jtwt as Mr. Wallace hag shown that he thinks more of temperance than of a mayor's job. The Laziest Shepherd. A century und more ugo a pamphlet entitled \The Shepherds of Salisbury Plain\ set forth their notorious lazi- ness and snld a gentleman offered u prize of a guinea to the laziest of a slumberous group. Some started up to clulni the orize, which was won by the shepherd who merely murmured an invitation to shove It Into his pocket.—London Globe. WHERE YOUR TAXES GO. During the campaign of 1914 for state prohibition In Washington a busi- ness man in the city of Seattle was ap- proached by a friend with the ques- tion, \What do you think of the state- wide prohibition movement? Do you think it will win?\ \Yes It will win, because it ought to win.\ \Why I thought you were an advo- cate of the principles of Individual re- sponsibility, personal liberty, etc.\ \So I am. So I am. That's just the point. The liquor business is an in- fringement on my personal liberty and I'll prove it to you. Now, I pay $9,- 000 a ye'ar taxes—for what? For the past four years I've been following up all the state, county and city appropri- ations just to see whore my taxes go to. Here are the records and esti- mates, right here in this book. I find thut the maintenance of almshouses, hospitals, orphan asylums, courts of law, mothers' pensions, reform schools, jails, Insane asylums and peniten- tiaries, costs me over $2,200 a year, all because of the whisky business. I don't drink myself, because I can't af- ford to drink, und it's not business to drink; but I am forced to support at least five drunks and pay the dam- ages. You call this a free country?\ FLIRTING WITH UNDERTAKER. •Here Is something that may give the beer drinker pause: In Professor Eelnltzer's prisms, displayed conspic- uously in the anti-alcohol exhibitions of Europe, one cube represents a pint of pure alcohol—enough to kill a man on the spot. Alongside of this Is a prism standing for 14 6-10 pints of al- cohol, the amount a man who drinks a pint of beer dnlly takes into his Sys- tem each year. It Is a relatively sim- ple problem to estimate from these comparisons just to what extent and how fatuously u beer drinker in pur- suing his favorite uvocatton Is flirting with the undertaker.—Dr. Edwin F. Bowers. A'lsp Waeited. If (here are any country women who are wasting Ihelr time envying their Sisters In the city—don't do It. Such an attitude Is out of date.—Exchange. CONVERTED BY EVIDENCE. Those who were honestly opposed, as I wad) to prohibition In Washing- ton and Oregon, have boen converted to it, as I have boon, by the actual evidence that prohibition Is a fine thing from a business standpoint. No city and nt». community can afford to have saloons. They are too expen- sive, morjdly and economically. In •a. very fe\y years there will not be a licensed sitfoon In the whole country. i%l ?£ MAP»yL#,° ADVERTISES IS THE MAN WHO SELLS No 23 RESULTS OF NO LICENSE. ' Mayor Paul M. Collins of Peotone, 111., speaking before the AVoman's Voting league, turned the spotlight on financial conditions since the town has been dry. Two years ago the village was $1,000 in debt. On January 1, 1916, said the mayor, there was a sur- plus of $1,600 in the treasury and •credits amounting to $400. A $1,000 water bond, due in 1917, has been paid also. This was accomplished •notwithstanding the loss of $4,000 an- 'nual liquor license revenue. To Clean Hair Brushes. Te clean hair brushes take a cup- ful ©f cornmeal and fill the brush, rub- bing gently with the hand. As it ab- sorbs the grease and dirt shake it out and use fresh meal till the brush is cleaned thoroughly. This .is bet- ter than ammonia, as there is no wa- ter to injure ©r loosen the back of the brush. MARBLE CUTTERS Best service at lowest possible cost; cemetery lettering.
