A few years ago a representative of
Brad street was talking to me about
the rating of business firms and the
chances of business success of va
rious people. He called attention to
the fact that school teachers as a
whole were the poorest business peo
ple that the company found. His
reason was that the nature of the
business was theoretical and imag
inary, and the realities of life were
seldom faced. In other words he said
the very life of our schools is im
practical to a business success. Was
he right? If so let as help change it.
At the present time our teaching
force, having developed opinions, is
traveling a path of its own. On the
other hand the patrons of the school.
somewhat dissatisfied, with the
amount of money paid for schools and
ith no dehmte demands, are trav
eling a path of their own, and these
two paths are getting farther apart.
If our money is to be wisely spent
and our educational method is to fit
the pupil for life's needs we must
reorganixe our school scheme.

Stay by the Dairy Cow.
(Morrow County Extension Service News)
The price of hay in the hay grow
ing sections of Morrow county is
tending to encourage the dairyman
to quit the dairy game and sell his
cows. A number of requests for in
formation have been received by the
County Agent regarding ft possible
market in California for surplus
cows. Information is being gathered
as to the possibility of selling in this
market. However, the wisdom of sell
ing cows and getting out of the dairy
game at this time is very Beriously
questioned in the irrigated sections
of the county where alfalfa is the
main crop. Over a term of years it
is believed higher profits can be made
feeding hay than in selling it.
One of the best markets for hay is
through the milk pail. During the
past few months hay has been rising
and the price of butterfat has been
relatively low. This is largely a sea
sonal condition and next year may be
entirely reversed. Among men who
have studied the situation, it is be
lieved that the alfalfa weevil is slow
ly spreading and it is probable that
within the next few years we will
have it in this section. After it does
come, we will undoubtedly be quar
antined and the man who is equipped
to feed his hay on the place is going
to be, relatively, sitting pretty. One
of the very major reasons for the suc
cess of most of our successful farm
ers is that they got into one line and
followed it through. The man woo
is continually switching his opera
tions is always in at the wrong time
or out at the wrong time. The man
who has a farm better suited to wheat
raising, sheep growing, or dairying,
should stay with that line of farming,
If he changes from one line to an
other he is always selling at the bot
tom and starting in at the top. Us
ually by the time he has made
change, conditions are different again
and he is not in a position to reap the
benefits of the change.
During the past three months a
large number of horses have been
lost in the Irrigon and Boardman
communities. Several farmers in the
Irrigon community especially, have
lost all their horses from this dis
ease. To get a line on it, the County
Agent secured the help of Dr. W. H.
Lytle, State Veterinarian, and he sent
Dr. H. H. Green, his assistant, into
the county last week. One of the
sick horses was killed and examined
and it is believed that the disease is
a form of botulinus poisoning.
what is generally known as walking
disease, but in a more acute form. Ar
rangements were made to have horses
in the Irrigon section given an anti
toxin as a preventative measure. The
disease starts with an unsteady ae
tion in the hind quarters, resulting
within twenty-four hours of the ani
mal going down and a paralysis of
the hind quarters extending through
out the body. Horses have been liv
ing from one to five days after taking
the disease, and according to the
State Veterinarian, there seems to be
o cure for it after contracting the
disease. It is apparently not con
tagious, although any number of
horses can get the disease from the

THE TURNING OF THE WORM.
A year or so ago a large band of
Mennonites emigrated from Canada
to Chihuahua, Mexico. The Mennon
ites do not believe in war, nor in fight
ing under any circumstances. They
have wandered from place to place
their migrations usually resulting
from objections to their presence by
those who had to defend the govern
ments under which they lived.
And now reports from Chihuahua
state that the Mennonites have taken
up arms against the bandits, who
seem to want nothing better than an
opportunity to raid the flocks and
granaries of a colony that can farm
but doesn t want to fight.
It was bound to come to that. Pac
ifism never did work. Somebody a!
ways has to fight, or at least be ready
to fight, in the defense of property
and liberty. People like the Mennon
ites, who refuse to be either soldiers
or policemen, usually consider them
selves martyrs. They are only slack
ers, imposing upon others the task
of defending them and their proper
ty. When this colony got to Mexico,
and its menfolk found that there was
no one there to protect them, they
reached for the shotgun.
It's a good thing for a pacifist to
go to Mexico and accumulate a little
property. The Agricultural Review,

At the present time the size of our
tax bill seems almost intolerable.
Almost one-half of that tax is for
school purposes. The proposition that
interests me is not that we are sper.d
ing too much for education, but
whether our money ia buying exactly
what it should buy. Sometimes I am
inclined to think that we are buying
a silk hat suitable only for Sunday
and special occasions instead of
