A Word of Caution
Farmers, don't let the rise in the price of tobacco
make you lose sight of the value of the live-at-home
program. You can't get rich as long as you de[>end
upon the other fellow" to produce your food and sell
it to you, but you can go hungry by doing it.
Candidate Roosevelt made a good point in his De
troit speech when he pleaded for social justice.
He was in the city that has created more wealth in
a short time than any other city in the world of its
size- but which now has more hungry, de|x*ndent
people than any other city of its size.
The wealth was created by high wages paid men
and high prices for* materials to produce something
that was sold and drew money from all corners of the

earth. When all the substance these corners had was
drawn away and they could not longer buy, then De
troit suffered. They had nothing to do.
The same rule applies to practically every other
kind of business. The world has sold goods too high.
The buyers did not get value received, and now the
only thing we have to remind us of our trade is the
past-due note staring us in the face.
We need a new order, and a better business system
in individual businesses.
Need More Cows
Now is a good time to buy that fainily cow.
Almost every farm has plenty of waste feed to keep
the cow going during the whole winter, and next
spring the grass will come again. The cow's natural
food —an acre of grass will pay a bigger profit than
cotton, corn, tobacco, or peanuts, and it is a lot eas
ier because the cow does all the farming.
Every family in Martin County needs milk—plenty
of milk will save a lot of doctors' bills and medicines,
as well &s save about one-third of the living cost of
the average farmer.
Good cows can be bought cheaply now, and every
farmer should help to make himself and his country
pros|)erous by buying and keeping a good cow.
The Seat of Our Troubles
There are a few questions which no man has yet
answered to the full satisfaction of everybody.
Most people still have different opinions about our
present financial troubles. Doubtless there are more
than a score of reasons. One of the greatest of them
all is gambling. Mqje fraud has been committed
and more people have been destroyed on the New
York and Chicago stock exchanges than at any other
places in the country. In fact, enough money has
been lost on these markets by innocent, ignorant in
vestors to break the country a half dozen times.
The Insull financial collapse cost the country many
millions, also the Krueger match king fraud made
many men kill themselves, besides Mr. Krueger him
And then the general speculation for the past 15
years has almost approached the gambling spirit. If
the people had bought nothing unseen, or things that
had not been proven by honest test, then conditions
would not half so bad as they are.
