CLACKAMAS COUNTY NEWS I
Take up the farmer's burdens
There is one who dnu It well',
A new champion for the farmer's righto ;
HIi name Is Geo. Brownell.
His tongue la glib, his rhetoric good.
Integrity Is written on his face,
In the courts he takes the poor man's part,
His heart is in the right place. .
He tells of the legislature work,
Be did our wrongs to right,
How arduous the task to get bills through,
A oaiual observer might think light.
This aervant of the people
Will not east o'er you a spell,
Be takes up the fanner's burden
And be does It mighty well.
Oo listen to him talk
For he makes thinics quite olear,
Many things yon never understood, .
Which seemed to you ao queer.
Yes, go and listen to George talk, he
is a servant of the people and he has
taken up a little spec of the fanner's
burden, and Ood knows we need it.
Take up the farmer's burden, catch the
sad refrain as it conies from every farm
community. It is tax paying time and
after a year's ceaseless toil of all hands
on the farm saving hi're, economizing
there, enough has not been saved to pay
the yearly taxes.
Take up the farmer's burden, let this
so worm and intertwine its way into the
farmer's thought that whenever he
writes or talks the farmer's burden will
obtrusively force itself to the front. I
say to all the writers of this paper, take
up the farmer's burden in every article
you write; let us make this paper so
alive with interest in the farmer's
burden that every farmer in the country
will want to read it,
la the suburbs of Cams even the ducks
hare taken up the farmer's burden. A
short while past an Oregon City doctor
bad been attending a patient out back
. of Carus and the patient died, as many
Of them do, you know. After a little
time the doctor went out to collect his
bill for something he didn't do, and
while q iletly driving along through the
suburbs of Carus he was thinking of his
ill-luck in losing so many patients; of
the uncertainty of life and the certainty
of death, especially when the patients
were in his hands, and jiiHt as this
thought passed through liU mind a flxik
. of ducks that were disporting them
selves in a frogpond alongside the road
turned their attention to the doctor and
all in chorus cried oufquuck," "quack,"
which made the doctor so mad you could
hear him swear two blocks away.
Take up the (armor's burden, says the
duck as you feed him grains come to
think of it you better not for you'll he
cussed for your pains. Why take up
the farmer's burden, he's a thankless
self s iflloient creature, yon can see the
type of his progenitor, according to
Darwin, but Darwin was mistaken in
the animal. It wasn't an ape from
which the American farmer evolved, it
was that long-eared animal whose name
you spell with three letters a id in the
processes of evolution, the ears havo
shortened but the bray is there just the
same. Get off the earth, you ornery
horny-handed, hard-headed cuss you, go
to Hades. No, come to think about It,
you better go to the Philippines and take
your place at the foot of the class with
that bow-shooting, spear-throwing
savage Uncle Sam has taken in hand to
train, and by takings second course in
evolution you may become bright
enough t'i protect your rights and (ret
your prices for the product of your lulior,
The way th other fellow gets it I will
tell you how that is In my next.
