. THE FALLS CITY HEWS. i» O 4 ISOLATION AND DHUD6- ÌT < ?H E N 18343411 ißU P B O A R D OF AGRICULTURE. The Rural Church the Guiding Star of Progress. THE NEW RURAL CIVILIZATION By Petar Radford. Lecturer National Farmer»' Union. We are confronting a new rural ctvtiiiaUon It la to radically differ •nt from the life of the peat that It may well be called new, not merely because of Ite characteristics, but be cause of its triumph in rural co-opera- tton and leadership. The utilisation of modern agencies, and the use of farm machinery have greatly increas ed the efficiency of the farmers, broadened their vision and made life ^ more satisfying The most serious enemies to coun try life are Isolation and drudgery, and perhaps the worse of the two is Iso lation. It is the curse of the coun try. The hunger of young people for companionship has been disregarded and in various ways the social in stincts have had their revenge. The fruits of modern tnvenUve skill and enterprise have enriched country' life and afforded the facilities of banish ing forever the extreme ieolaUon which used to vex the farm house hold of the past. The telephone Is a great' social asset In the rural home; the rural free delivery brings the world's dally message to the door; the parcel post delivers ten million pack ages per annum at a halt million homes, and the automobile annihilates distance, making Isolation a myth. The building of public highways has brought communities and farm homes closer together. T h e S lav e of D rudgery. It is a dramatic moment on the farm when machinery emancipates the slave of drudgery. The evolution of farm machinery is a continued atory of human ingenuity. One man now, by the aid of modern mechanical devices, can do as much as five or ten men used to perform and the work is less burdensome and more fascinating. The miracle of conquest will lift the curse of drudgery that has crushed the courage out of farm boys and caused them to retreat to the cities There are many labor-saving devices for the homes that ean relieve the wife of back-breaking tasks La bor-saving machinery has wrought educational problems that have en gaged the attention of the boys, re lieved the housewife and added new economies and values to farming and has taken away self pity and given them a genuine pride In their calling We need to take full advantage of these facilities. Co-operation the K ey-N ote. One test of modern civilization is the capacity for co-operation The selfish days of the independent farm er are rapidly passing and we are be ginning to catch the vision and share the profits of organized efforts. There are many farm machines adapted to serving a community, but organiza tlon of farmers is required to pur chase and operate them on a co-oper ative basis, and new laws are needed to permit these transactions. New Tasks for the Rural Church. The rural church has been slow to adjust itself to the new order of things. The churches are discover ing new opportunities for service, broader community usefulness and a greater social mission. The church must gird itself for new tasks and under a new virile type of leadership undertake real community building with the modern church as the center of activity and source of Inspiration and guidance. The triumph over lso- latlon and the gradual emancipation from drudgery, the development of good roads, telephones, rural mall ser vice and the wonderful evolution of farm machinery make for religious advancement. The increase In Intel llgence, new social consciousness, growing spirit of cooperation, added efficiency of rural institutions, char- acter, home building and better rural morals afford opportunities for a com munity-serving church to demonstrate Its power. The rural church to ful fill Its mission must swing around It the Influences for progress. Take good roads for your text and go everywhere preaching the gospel of better farm conditions. The average bird Is the farmer's best and truest friend—stand by your friends—the feathered songsters. Peace on earth! Where? To Europe: Peace and good will to all men! Don’t worry today. Put it off until tomorrow, which never gets here. It is quite some war when both sides win great victories in the same battle. W HEN SH A D 18 P L E N T IF U L .

The farmer pays a much higher rate of Interest as a rule thau any other class oi borrower and hls property, especially that of farm prod ucta, is not so readily accepted as a j busts of credit as the property of other lines of Industry of equal mar ket value. A rural or land credit system Is needed that will enable a farmer to buy a home on loug time at a cheap rate of interest. j A statute based on sound business principles that will enable the land less to buy aud encourage the large laud owner to sell, is much needed, and one that merits the most serious consideration of our law makers. The financial problem of the state and nation is on the farm, and first attention should be given those who create the nation's wealth.

The principal function performed by government today is to collect taxes, keep records and prevent and punish crime; but that is not sufficient. Gov ernment should tip its hat to the God dess of Opportunity as courageously ' as It draw-s a six-shooter on a train robber. We ought to encourage thrift i as well as restrain greed. We have been basing legislation upon the ex | tremes of human life—the classes | high and low, the depraved and the | talented—let us now reach the masses ( and the extremes will more nearly | disappear Our statutes are filled to j overflowing with pity and revenge; let us add opportunity. The slogan of the Farmers’ Union is co-operation. Not only among in ' dividual farmers, but between all legi ! timate and useful occupations. We | want to sit around the hearthstone ! of Industry and talk over problems of j mutual Interest with our neighbors. We want to invite those who are earnestly searching for Information on public questions to get back to the soil with their Investigations where, in the stillness of nature, they can climb the mountain-top of wis dom, explore the deep canyons of knowledge and stroll through the quiet valleys of understanding.

Increase the safety, comforts and profits of those j who labor In commerce and Industry i than their fellow tollers In agricul j ture. But how about the farmer who j bows his back to feed and clothe the world, and who works from sun until sun? Is he not also entitled to an Increase in pay and a shortening of j hours? Much haa been said about j the women in the factory and behind the counter, but how about the woman In the field, drpnehed In perspiration, gathering the harvest, the little chil dren, their lips wet with mother’s milk, toiling by her side? Are they not also entitled to consideration? Is not the man who digs In the ground entitled to the same consideration as he who tolls at the forge, weaves at the loom and works behind the count er?
