There never wns a time in the
history of our country when
agriculture wns nn inviting n3
it is today, when brains and
brawn would bring as satis
factory results from the farm.
With the trades and professions
in cities greatly overcrowded,
the farm becomes more and
more the bright and beckoning
star of hope to millions of young
men. Surplus energy of the
cities would do well to turn its
attention to the farm, and the
wise youth of the country will
stay right where ho is where
onnortunity is always beforo
him.- Keen your eye upon the
green fields of the county, for
there is no better place.
President Wilson's proclama
tion calling for a national day of
nraver on October 4 for the ces
sation of war in Kurono probably
is without precedent in this or
any other country. But, if so,
it is the most beautiful pre
cedent that has over been set in
any nation There are prayers
for peace in our prayerbooks,
and days of prayer for the
speedy termination of wars huvo
been often tlxcri ly olllcinl pro'
clamation in countries engager
in them: but for a neutral na
tion of more than ninoty millions
of people to get down 011 its knees
and pray for peace inotliercoun
tries will bo one of the moBt
impressive, as well as one of the
moul unusual, spectacles ever
presented on earth. Wo be-
novo everybody in the United
States will otter up a prayer on
that day in the earnest spirit of
altruism, which the f resident's
message suggests. And if any
thing ciin make a path for pence
"whero men can seo none." we
believe unselfish supplication
from the heart 01 a great conn
try can open the door of divine
compassion. The ualtimoro bun.
Wo often wonder if it has over
occurred to some people that
editors are human, and not gift
cd with second sight. An
editor is constantly on the hunt
for news of interest to the peo
ple who read and pay for Iub
paper, and ho never intention
ally omits an article of any im
portance. The success of his
paper depends upon his impar
tiality in this respect. And yet
often some person conceives the
erroneous idea that the editor
has purposely left out some item
concerning them or their fam
ilies. Has it ever occurred to
thorn that the editor may not
have heard of that particular
item, although ho searched dili
gently in his efforts to secure
all of the news? Thoro is 11 very
oliectivo remedy lor theao iso
lated but inadvertent omissions.
The next timo you havo a pieco
of nows concerning yourseir,
or your family, or your neigh
bors, or of your community.
givo it to tho editor yourself, or
phono or write it in to him, and
do not depend upon others to do
it. They may bo moro interest
ed in alTairs on their own sido
of tho fonce. Tho tulilor will
thank you for your thoughtful
noss in enabling him to secure
news that will ndd to the valuo
of his paper and make it of in
torast to all of tho pooplo, for
that Ib his mission in life.- Ex-clmngo.
