Fire Proof Water Proof How often we read of the yearnings of citv people for the country, but seldom read such reasons for this great desire as are advanced bv a writer in Maxwell Talisman, as follows: People flock to the cities today, and stay there, not so much be cause they like to, as because they must. Before the inexor able conditions that dominate men in an industrial age, they are as helpless as chips carried by a great torrent, and the coun try man who drifts to the city is like the twig that is washed from the soil far inland or swept by the current into a great ocean. A multitude of people of small means, and not owning land, are now in the cities, not because they find the city more agreeable, but because circumstances force them there. Apparently in each case there is an immediate cause, but careful observation will show that there is one great underlying cause of all the migrations from country to city. There is a great force from which no man is free, that carries away a definite per. centage of the people to replenish the cities, which with each new growth acquire the power of absorbing and blighting still more lives. It is not only that the city attracts; the country re pels. This is why there has been so little response to the cry of "Back to the Land!" 1 As long as it continues impossible for the people to eet back to the land they will stay where they are: in the cities. The. country pro duces people and thrusts them on the cities, but never takes them back. The reason is to be found in the relative opportunities offer ed to the wage earner. Opportunity is the gate to the cities and lack - of opportunity is the unsurmountable barrier that excludes a great number of the people from the boon of country life. However much the wage earner may yearn for the freedom and pure air of the country, his only opportunities are in the city, and there he must stay. A limited number of people can live in the country as farmers; the rest of our population must forever depend on work in the cities or towns for a livelihood. If we are to preserve the vigor of the race, we must provide tor the health and happiness of these. It matters not how much room we have left in the country, if the man who wants to go to the country finds it impossible to get there. We can only get the wage earner back to the land by getting the factory and office back to the land and there re placing the tenement by homes on the land. Every clerk and factory operative who so desires, should be enabled to buy a home acre convenient to his. work. Rural life, within the reach of every wage earner, would place modem industrialism on a sound, social and moral foundation that it has heretofore lacked. ' The menacing problems of present day congested city life will vanish before the' wage earner's fireside and home-p-arden of the future. And not until modern industrialism has been adjusted in this way to the needs ot a healthy moral development of the factory people will the democracy of our forefathers have permeated the industrialism of later gener ations. s pointed to this work, preached at Simp son chapel last Sunday.

In this county there is- not a large delicquetiey this year, in fact, as the years roll by the delinquent list in Benton county becomes smaller and smaller. Sheriff Burnett estimates that at present the delinquent list is approxi mately $4,700, which is very smalK Every day some party shows up at the sheriff's office and pays not only their taxes, but the penalty that is added on acoonnt of their delinquency. On this account our sheriff is of the opinion that when the delinquent tax list is ready for publication, some time in December next, taxes will have been paid until the list will have dwindled from $4,700 down to a $1,000 or $1,500. Taxes on timber claim in this county are unpaid to the tune of several thousand dollars. This is clearly understood when one considers the fact that the government is not dealing out patents at wholesale now-a-days and on the other hand is making considerable inquiry anent timber claims. If the holder of a timber claim is to lose hie claim through any action of the law he does not propose to lose any additional tax money with it. Of course, in due season if the taxes on these claimu are not paid the claims will be advertised and sold at sheriff's sale the same as any other deliquent tax property. Piano Lessons. ' Mardannt. A.
