.President Wilson held tho tnlddlo
man responsible for the high cost of
foodstuffs last weok In a spooch wel
coming to Washington tho conrcntlon
of tho Nutlonal Orange, Uio first for
mat spocch ho litis delivered dIiico tho
election. Urging that farmers In
crease their output, the President said:
"Wo ought to rnlso uch big crops
that circumstances llko tho prcsont
can nover recur, when men can mako
bellovo as It the supply was so short
that tho middleman could charge for
It what ho pleases. It will not do to
be niggardly with tho rest of the
world In respect to Its food supply.
Tho president did not mention recent
petitions to him to 'declare an embargo
on tho exportation of foodstuffs from
tho United States, and he did not refer
even Indirectly to tho outcome of tho
Presidential oloctlon. Uls address
was Intoruptod frequently by applauso
tfrom thq.farmors.attendlng tho llftloth
anniversary, celebration of tho found
ing of tho Orange.
Problems of the Farmers.
Tho President spoke as follows:
"It cocs without saying that tho
physical life of the nation has-alwaysi
ueponuod upon mo rarm. it goon
without saying also, that to alargo
uxtont tho physical life of tho world
has drawn Its Bustnnance from tin
great areas of farm landa In tho Uni
ted States. We have sent food to all
parts of the world, and tho American
farmor has contributed to tho life of
all the countries of tho world. Hut
you know that as our own population
has Increased tho nrouortlon In which
wo could help foreign countries ns
contrasted with our own 1ms docrcaj
ed and there nro problems ,that nro
comparable with tho problems of stat
esmanship lying ahead of tho farmers
of tho United States:
'I havo been very much Intorosted
to confering with the Secretary of
Agriculture to find that although tho
laboratory and -the investigations ot
tH,man,ot ecjeuce.jrho was, not dir
ectly concerned with thq farm have
had a groat deal to do with tbepro
niotlon ot agriculture in the United
States, as elsewhere, what has had
ftljl moro to do with .it has, been the
Intelligent- farming of the individual
farmer. Most of the methods which
tho domonstrators of tho Department
t. AffrlnlttHll-.t tlfltfn hflftfl himv in
spVcad a sfar and wide as po88,bIo Polled as a result of his wife's Illness,
have been methods which they havo,w',lc.h fo,,owed to alleged Qucstlona-
learned from tho most accomplished
and best Instructed fanners In tho
fjln other words, tho Department of
Agriculture lias hnd, as ono of Its
-most Important duties, to put all tho
farmers of tho United States, bo far
ns posBlblo, whero tho best of tho
fnr)n6rs ot tho United States had got
of their own Inltlatlvo and of tholr
owii Intelligence. Tlint, aftor all, Is
tho buslnoHB of education anyhow
tosproad tho product of the bobt minds
far! and wldo, bo that' thoy may ho
HCCOHulblo to everybody.
'!I)ut In tho futuro we havo got to
brjfng moro of tho urea of tho United
Stntos under cultivation than Is under
cultivation now. Wo havo got to In--crefuno
tho product at ovory point
wlusro It Is BitHcoptlblo of bolng Incrcaa

how to assist nnturo, or nt ony rato
undor'atund nature, by making tho
moHt Biiltablo uso of our sovorul and

has Interested mo most, for example',
iHjItlmt what wo havo called tho pine
barrens or our southern coast. nood
not bo barrens nt all; that If wo add
aislnglo additional chemical element
"wjpean mako tho sand blossom and
bloom and produce crops, and that If
nature 1b only questioned closoly v
will yolld us hor richest

for tho assistance of tho rest of tho
"Wo havn got to look closely Into
these secrets, and wo havo got to ro
alizo that thcro must go forth from
tho United States tho bost agricultural
Intellgcnco of all tho world. Wo havo
got tho moans.' Wo havo got tho
Ptjrposo. Wo havo started along
tho right lines,
Loans for the Farmer.
"Ono of tho things that has most
Interested mo about what has boon
done recently by legislation for tho
benofit of tho farmer is tho quostlon
why it was not dono long before U
Is astonishing that tho ossots tho vol
uablo nvnllablo assets, tho vlslbto as
sots of tho farm should not havo been
available as a basis of credit In tho
banks on tho samo terms as the assets
of commercial undertaking and man
ufacturing Industry. Cattle nro Just
as visible and tangible us goods In
warehouses and goods on trains.
"Credit based on cattle Is as good
as crodit based on bills of lading, and
tho astonishing thing is not that It
has been dono now, but that It took
no long to do It. And when you add
to that what has been dono by tho
Ilural Credits bill In tho way of long
(extending credits you will see that
wo havo, so to say. got ready for tho
first time to uso the capital of this
country to push forward tho agricul
tural Industry of this country. Wo
havo llboratod tho credits of tho banks
and wo havo mobilized, through tho
Department of Agriculture, tho scien
tific intollgenco of tho world."

few slight bruises.
Tho Spifingfliftd team nefed llko
a herd of mule colts In a strange pas

ther stood up .on their hind legs and
tried to come; back, h Thoy had good
signals, and they had better plays than
Junction, but they did. not hare any
