w,- THE HAYMAKERS.
"Making! hay while the sun shines';
was novervmore iorcibly Illustrated
in this country than it lr today es
peciallyramang the .classes that labor;
largely, iwRh their hands; -Nearly
every, able-bodied man and "woman 14
engaged in some useful, productive
occupation;;, at. almost Inconceivably
high wages. Many go at their tasks
.not alone-, for the money there. is in
.it, -but imbued with genuine patriotic
ferver giving their utmost jthat Hb
..ertjf might' Burvjve a- big day's work
for a big day's pay.- The actual mo
tive underlying the consistent, Hercu
lean efforts ,of such workers is inspir
ing. It is well that the world's work
of the many is being done by the few,
for- arrayed, against, them is the slack'
effort of other workers, so-called who
give as HtUe-asthey can for as much
as they can get. The best we can
hope for is that we strike an even'
balance in the world's production.
By the time these abnormal condi
tions are' over, it does BOt regulrft
much of a prophet to foretell which
class will have a goodly share of the
"hay" stored away. The same, quali
ties In a man that impels him to cou
scfentlouB endeavor will also Impel
him to a sensible conservation of what
he has earned. Thrift follows diligence
as naturally as. night follows day. The
slacker, regardless of what he has re
ceived in' the way' of " compensation,
will be. where, he has always been
in want' and distress for his custo
mary lack of foreslghtednesa. We
have no' message for the slacker,
either 'in war or out of it Verbal
ammunition Is wasted upon him. If
he cannot or will not save, the seed
of material success is not in him. But,
to tlid' real haymaker and hay-con-server
we could say much, if ho
needed advicet which we doubt If he
has'the good "judgment to save his ex
traordinary earnings, be will probably
exercisers much discernment in in
vesting his surplus.
After! the war is over there will nat
urally ''follow a tremendous readjust
ment' of the economic forces of the
world.' Labor of all kinds will be vi
tally' ''affected. The highly-skilled
artisan as usual need not have '"much
to fear his ranks are never over
filled. But the average worker, and
they are legion, will have some prob
lems afrectingTjis welfare that will bo
strictly up to him to solve. It is cer
tain' that the present plethoric condi
tions tvIII bo dissolved, arid while we
do not believe it will glvo way to a
''conditlon 'bordering upon stagnation,
Just tho same the changes' will be
radical ones and perhaps abrupt.
To the man who "made hay while
the sun shone" and hung on to the
hay, his safest opportunity lies in a
"forward" movement of "back" to the
soil. A little piece of land assidu
ously tended with tho same degree of
diligence that dominated' his hay
making efforts, a study of tho condi
tions peculiar to his chosen locality,
a scanning of the world's markets, a
desire to learn tho business from
those whoso methods have been suc
cessful, will perhaps not bring tho
hay In as fast as war-time Is doing,
but it will bring It In as sure and
There is some of God's green acres
In Lane county waiting and clamoring
for men Hko you. '
