OPPORTUNITY OF A COMMUNITY.
The (arming interests of this
community .cannot place too
much emphasis upon the advis
ability and necessity of making
every foot of ground productive
to the highest degree.
With nearly the whole of
Europe unproductive there will
be a tremendous demand made
upon America for food-stuffs in
the months to come, and this de
mand must he met or those peo
ple will starve.
This does not necessarily mean
that America will be called upon
to feed Europe gratis: Eprope
will pay in gold for what it gets
from us, dollar for dollar.
A duty and an opportunity
confronts us. ,
t)uty demands that we pro
duce to the limit, that the hun
gry across the water may be fed.
Opportunity knocks at our
door, in that there wil| be a
ready market at bigh prices for
every onnce that we can sell.
Even now the hand ot Europe is
outstretched across the water for
It is an opportunity for the
tyiilding up of this agricultural
community, for the enriching of
our people, for an influx of for
eign gold such as we have never
For Europe must cat, and to
eat Europe must buy the food
stuffs wa have to sell.
Let every foot of ground pro
duce something for the financial
weal of this community. 4
THE CALL OF BLOOD.
The hour is at hand for all
?people in the United States to

forbearance in discussing the
conflict in Europe, lest a Spark

The blood of ever)* natiou at
war is mixed in oar citizenship.
America is mode up of people
from many lands. These people
are good citizens, loyal to tbier
adopted country, ready to defend
it in case of need, but we cannot
expect them to entirely forget
the kindred ties of their nativity.
The blood of their forefathers
is calling to each of them, and
in the heat of argument or in
the si -.ess of strong emotion it is
easy to My or do that which will
wound some man whose sympa
thies are with another country?
with the place he once called
home ? with the lend that shelt

Let us use forbearance one to
another. Let us concede to
others that same right of sym
pathy which we ouise'ves en
joy. Let U1 remember that there
is good among all people, honor
able men of all races, justice ia
every land. Let us-refraia from
acrimonious debate, and turn
our united energies to tlie pre
