The World Will Never Starve.
At no time since Adam and Eve
were driven from the Garden of Eden
have tbe inhabitants of this world
suffered from lack of production, but
some people have gone bun~ry from
tbe day of creation to this good hour
for the lack of proper distribution.
Slight variations In production have
forced a change In diet and one local­
ity baa felt the pinch of want, while
another surfeited, but the world a* a

one should become alarmed, tbe
world will never starve.
The consumer has always feared
that the producer would not supply
him and his fright has found expres­
sion on the statute books of our statej
and nations and the farmer has been
urged to produce recklessly and with­
out reference to a market, and regard­
less of the demands of the consumer.
Back to the Soil.
The city people have been urging
each other to move back to the farm,
but very few of them have moved.
We welcome our city cousins back to
