Down in Froglevel
by O. lawrencc Hawthorne
Oh Lord of men, - teach me to know
Just what "a good name" signifies!
Help me to understand its worth
And let me never cease to prize
Above all else that life affords
Yes, better far than wealth or fame
The reputation that is won
Alone by him of worthy name.
A fearless strenirth of character,
The will to do some useful deed,
The vision that conceives a way
To satisfy another's need-
On such as these a man's good namej
Is built; his leadership depends
On service to his fellow men 1
And .loyalty to humble friends.

"Preventive work In the spring
will wipe out the breeding places,"
says Dr. Patton, who Is the medical
director of the Prudential Insur

large extent, eliminate these men

The house fly feeds and breeds
on every kind of filth, and Is a
remarkably efficient carrier of dis
ease.' It specializes In typhoid,
dysontery, Asiatic cholera and
other diseases, Including tubercul
osis. Swatting the fly is an accept
able means of annihilating the full
grown pest, but not so effective In
ahe end as preventive measures.
For tt la much easier to clear away
the potential breeding place for a
million flies than It Is to swat or
catch that million after they have
grown to a lively maturity.
Filling In and draining are the
two most effective means of elimin

those are not practicable the per

The purchasing power of farm eoiiiiuinlitics continues to rise. I.aiest esti
mates show an average of 4.8 points lii-lier for tl' llrst eleven months of this
year than during the corresponding months of 1!.",. according to a report of
the Sears-Itoehiick Agricultural rinnilatiin. Iiasi'il en the new index numbers
of farm prices prepared by the United Stalls Department of Agriculture.
Kami prices show a combined value of :u on November 1, 1024, as com
pared with 10(1 In 1913. This combined Index number Includes 30 farm com
modities which represent more than '.Ml per cent of the value of products sold
by farms, the Foundation points out. Using August. 1!K)!. to July. 1914, us 100,
the purchasing power of these products stood at 87 on November 1 of this year.
In I91S the purchasing power was 100. decreasing to 69 In 1921. In 1922 lt'rose
to 74 and by 1928 the average stood at 78. During the first eleven months of
this year the purchasing power of farm commodities averaged 82.3 as compared
with 77..r In the same period a year ago.
Advances In grain, which averages ubout 22 per cent of the total value
of farm products sold, and In price of meat animals, which averages 27 per
cent, have been the largest factors In the Increase of the farmer's purchasing
power since 1921. The grain farmer received during the early part of this
year prices about 10 per cent above the pre-war five-year average. This bad
risen to 30 per cent Increase by July. At the same time the general price
level of commodities the farmer has to buy ranges 30 to 80 per cent above th

That club leadership must tie Increased properly to nam Hie luiys mid
flrlg of th nation who decide to remain on farms and become the bulwark of
American' agriculture la shown In a survey of the club work of the Junior
farmers Just completed by Benjamin H. Da r row. director of the boys' and girls"
club work of the Sears-Roebuck Agricultural Foundation. ,
According to the report or the Foundation, based on a count by the De
partment of Agriculture, 722,40? jij,icts were begun In 1923 by 459.074 boys
and girls, a number which Is lew than 6 per cent of the farm youth of the na
tion of dub age. Of these pro:u 429.746 were completed by 249.416 club
members. Girls completing their ortc outnumber the boys three to two, there
being 150,194 girls and 99,222 boys The report also Indicates that 55.6 per cent
of the enrolled flrls finished their projects, while only 62.9 per cent
of the boys completed theirs. The high point reached In 1918. as shown by the
accompanying chart, was due to the expansion of club work In. connection with
the slogan of the day: "Food will win the war." After the crisis was over
there was retrenchment and club work suffered. .
"Many of the 8,000,000 boys and girls engaged In club work hope to lenve
the farm," said Darrow, "but 80 per cent of them will remain In the coun.ry.
experience has shown. All who stay on the fiirin should have the benefit uf

the Junior farmers of the nation, we must inp;.l!j increase tjjie number of conn

Horse markets are coming back. As both farm and city are demanding more
and better horses, better prices .nay ultimately result, according to the Sears
rtoehuck Agricultural Foundation based on a study of the trend In the buylnr
power of furm horses during the past 57 years.
Low prices probably will continue to discourage horse and mule produc
tion and cause a falling off In the equine population until average prices return,
the foundation believes. But already horse breeding operations have begun
to expand In the districts possessing the kind of foundation stock capable of
producing the sort of bones the market wants. Attractive prices are now
being paid for all good, big sound shapely drafters coming to market and good
horses t the wagon type weighing 1,400 to 1.800 pounds. Prices have ad
vanced from the extreme depression of two years ago.
How soon the turning point will be reached on the rank and file of horses
Is uncertain. Previous cycles of horse and mule prices as shown bv the ac
companying chart have varied greatly In length. The first lasted eleven years
from depression to depression, the second eighteen years and the present cycle
Is already twenty-seven years. It seems logical to believe that un upward
turn In prices which win last for a decade or longer will start before long
and that good horses and mules produced from matlngs In the nest few years
will get the benefit ef that advance by the time they reach marketable age.
Good horse are the exception on farms today. It la unthinkable lliat good
farmers will he content with plugs for long.
