Do you know what kept food prices
low in this country for 50 years?
It was the farmer with the strong
bark and the weak head.
What gave townsmen 5-eent a quart
milk for 20 years?
Hordes of farmers, not dairymen,
who were willing to bury their nose
Id the flank of a cow for five hours
before the rest of the world yawned.
And bury said nose for a bare liv
ing. What gavi u.s 25-cent corn?
A horde of farmers, and their sons,
and often their daughters, who were
willing to work from dawn to dusk
In the fields, regardless of what their
harvest might bring.
The farmers, until recently, con
sidered it their Job to raise all the
foodstuffs they could, whether they
broke even or not was quite immat

In short, it was a countryside pride
to work your head off because your
neighbor did, and to leave the ques
tion of your reward to the city buy
ers, and commission men, and pack
ers. Novor again, for the American far
mer. If the city worker has woke up,
and the returning soldier Books the
way to Independence, the American
farmer has been twice stirred.
The war taught him that, instead
of merely being a born slave, destin
ed to sweat for sweat's sake, he was
the backbone of the nation.
And we can discover no reason
why the farmer shouldn't receive
No reason why he, alone of the
world's workers, should do 16 hours

The northern part of Ireland was
(olonli'.ed hundreds of years ago by
settlers from Scotland. Thy have
preserved to a groat degree the habits
and qualities of their ancestors. Kven
the names have survived. McOovnrns,
McCoys and McDermotts reveal their
origin in their prefixes. A McCormack
is of a different stock from that of an
The Scotch are essentially a race
of ambitious tollers. Th' f are not
ably a nation of machinists. Nearly
every marine engine room on thn
ocean contains a Scotchman.
What wonder, then, that the north
of Ireland is dotted with wealthy
manufacturing town? And what
wonder that the south of Ireland
wants to help divide the income?
The south of Ireland contains the
same stock that came there two
thousand years ago, rolnforcod a
little, perhaps, by the British, or Cel
tic rnces who find thither when the
Scandinavian . and Gorman Saxons
made their conquests. They have
preserved till today too much of thn
conditions that existed then. The
northerners decided to do otherwise.
The Irish population Is as complex
as the Irish question. Without crit
icising the qualities of the southern
ers, one of which an Intense love of
freedom shows how high they can
rise, we must concede that they have
not made thnlr end of the island a
counterpart of the north in Industry
or wealth, although they have exactly
the: same political prlvllges. and more
than the same political representa
tion as any othor citizens of the Brit
