( M TItY TOWN BOOSTING
Right now agriculture is our big
Important problem and it is the pro
blem ol the manufacturer, the mer
chant, the newspaper and the news
paper editor, the banker and I lie
general public just as much as It
is the problem of the farmer.
Agriculture, above all industries,
i entitled to constructive publicity.
Agriculture is of such importance
that we could well afford to consider
everything that is spoken, written,
printed or painted in the light oi
the question, "Will it help or harm
our Agricultural Interests; will It
benefit the Fanner?"
Farming is just about the only
l him; that has not used publicity to
advantage. It needs boosting. It
cannot gel along wit bout it, and
si ill keep up with the time.
The tar r who can afford to
spend a dollar, or if 10 or $100 can
not afford not to spend it someway
with the community newspaper
either by subscribing, or having
printing done, or by inserting the
"card" of his farm in its columns,
or advertising the products he has
lor sale In SOme extent, at least,
and at the right time. And the pub
libber, nn bis side, cannot afford to
do a thing less than boost the farm

MEET "UNCLE JOHN"
Ol' the few men in America today
who are writing human interest,
homey poetry, Dr. John J. (laines is
excelled by none. Quaintly musical,
lull of human tone, disdainful of
the "hinhbrow", they strike the re
sponsive chord that is so charming
to the ears of the great mass of
American people today.
This is the man and this is the
poetry that has been engaged to in
terest ami entertain our readers thru
the AutOCaster service, in which this
newspaper holds an exclusive fran
chise. We will, therefore, publish a
poem, or prose poem, by Dr. Oalnes
regularly during the next year.
Watch for it.
Dr. (laines ('Uncle John') resides
and thrives ill Excelsior Springs,
Mo., which be describes as "beln' as
nigh lo l be center of the earth as
you can drive a slake."
I'nllke oilier well-known news
paper poets, Dr. (laines is country
made, country bred, and continues
in the country town life. Our read
ers will sonn realize that he is one
of them a plain American citizen.

PUZZLE: FIND ONE BIG MAN
There's a feller here amongst us that deserves sin
eerest praise. There ain't no other citizen more punctious
in his ways. He's silent as a crow-bar an' as sober as a
jedge an' he fills our blame requirements with a skill
that's feather-edge! I know you all will wonder, an' I
give you leave to guess the job that holds my hero, ere
1 hasten to confess.
As I think still more about it, I'm compelled to state
the fact: There ain't no man responsibler, nor one that's
better backed. . . . I'd like to overhaul him, an'
praise him to his face, but it's mighty hard to ketch
him, when lies any certain place! There's nothin' very
startlin' in Lis manners or his dress, but he drives our
rural mail route, nothin' more an' nothin' less!
