THE COUNTY FAIR
By Peter Radford
Lecturer National Farmers' tJnlon
The fanner gets more out of the
fair than anyone else. The fair to a
cfty man Is an entertainment to a
farmer it is education. Let us take a
stroll through the fair grounds and
linger a moment at a few of the'pointB
of greatest interest We will first
visit the mechanical department and
hold communion with the world's
.greatest thinkers. , , w. ?
You are now attending a congress of
the mental giants in mechanical sci
ence of all ages. They are addressing
you in tongues of iron and Bteel and
in language mute and powerful tell an
eloquent Btory of the world's progress.
The Inventive geniuses are the most
valuable farm hands we have and
they perform an enduring service to
mankind. We can all help others for
a brief period while we live, but it
takes a master mind to tower into the
realm of science and light a torch of
progress that will illuminate the path
way of civilization for future genera
tions. The men who gave us the
sickle, the binder, the cotton gin and
hundreds of other valuable inventions
work in every field on earth and will
continue their labors as long as time.
Their bright intellects have conquered
death and they will live and serve
mankind on and on forever, without
money and without price. They have
shown us how grand and noble it la
to work for others; they have also
taught us lessons In economy and effi
ciency, how to make one hour do the
work of two or more; have length
ened our lives, multiplied , our
opportunities and taken toil off the
back of humanity.
They are the moat practical men
the world ever produced. Their In
ventions have stood the ac'd test of
utility and efficiency, like all useful
men, they do not seek publicity, yet
millions, of machines sing their praises
from every harvest field on earth aud
as many plows turn the soil in mute
applause of their marvelous achieve
ments. RURAL SOCIAL CENTERS
We need social centers where our
young people can be entertained,
amused and instructed under the di
rection of cultured, clean and com
petent leadership, where aesthetio
surroundings stir the love for the
beautiful, where art charges the at
mosphere with inspiration and. power,
and Innocent amusements instruct
and brighten their lives.
To hold our young people on the
farm we must make farm life more
attractive as well as the business of
farming more remunerative. . The
school house should be the social unit,
I properly equipped for nourishing and
building character, so that the lives of
our people can properly function
around it and become supplied with
the necessary elements oi human
thought and activity.

Aches or Pains
- Peruna Did It f or Me.
"1 find Peruna an excellent spring; and
summer medicine and am glad to call
the attention of my friends to it. I
know by -experience that Peruna is a
good medicine, and always recommend
It whenever I have an opportunity. I
can truthfully say that I have no traces
of my old complaint, and have neither
ache nor pain, and enjoy life. Words
cannot express my appreciation for the
good Peruna has done tne."

I had sick headaches. My stomach
nearly killed me. My family physician
only gave me temporary relief. I got
out of patience and had given up all
hopes of recovery. I then wrote to Dr.
Hartman and he advised me to take
