The greatmajority of them are honest, industrious, intelligent and charitable. What can constitute a higher type of citizenship? The atmosphere of the farm home is pure. It speaks for itself. From it has come the majority of the greatest and best men ar.d women of the nation. Statistics prove this assertion. Nowhere does the love of home seem so strong as among the farm people, and it is a recognized fact that "the home makes the nation." Theodore Roosevelt realized this when he said : "There is no more important person exerting her influence upon the life of the nation than the farmer's wife, no more important home than the farmer's home, and it is of national importance to do the best we can for both." Ask any merchant in an' town or city to what class of people he would rather extend credit, and he will tell you the "farmer" every time; but in order to pay his honest debts the farmer and his family deny themselves many of the pleasures of life and some of the necessities. People representing the great basic industry of this country should not bo obliged to do this. They should receive a just compensation for the products of their farms. The thought of the farm people is not "How much can I get out of you?" but "How much can I do for you?" The old saying that "virtue is its own reward" does not seem to apply to the farmer on this earth. but it may in the hereafter. Ife docs not seem to bo a part of anything really, except work and taxes. The same tax rate is placed upon him as upon the man whoso business pays a 25 per cent, dividend, lie does not receive the positions of honor and trust that are given men in other call inga. lie knows that in the majority of cases it is only the poorest of any profession who stay in the country, for the attractions of the great American dollar to most people are far greater than the song of the birds, the hum of the bees, green grass, pure air and beautiful sunshine. His charity! If you are unfortunate ask any one in the country for money or food. If they have it, see how quickly you will receive it. Ask in the city for the same and vou will get 30 days. I know there is a law against begging, but there is no law which prevents a person from ' being hungry or unfortunate. Charity toward all is one of the strong charac- 1 teriatics of the American fanner. AM. STATESMEN SAW GREAT LIGHT Few Remarks Mads by Senator-Elec- t Convinced Them They Had No Protest Coming. ?

A great many farmers are look- ng for some easy method of killing the bindweed, and In the meantime are ettlng It cover the fields and festoon the trees of the orchard. They are looking for some magic "remedy" that will completely eradicate the weed with a small amount of exertion on their part. It must be understood that uch a formidable enemy as this weed requires heroic treament. Other farm era have gone at the problem less heedlessly, as in the case of a man who followed the root of a plant to the depth of four feet and then applied large quantity of salt In the hole. Various methods have been tried to keep down the top growth, and I I ... .... flood times, is also u factor In distributing the seeds and roots to other land. liindweed eradicated by doe not root too fleeply. The difficulty Is that many fanners will not cultivate as thoroughly as Is necessary. Even a small top growth la enough to form some new underground growth and rejuvenate the old roots or root stocks,- thereby carry, lng the plant over to the next season. Cultivation haa the further advantage of inducing a rapid germination of all - seeds of Jhe weed which are In the soil, the yuung seedlings being promptly destroyed by the subsequent tillage." Conditions In orchard lands are such aa to offer a favorable opportunity to get rid of this weed, or at least so reduce It that it doe not do much damage. Many orchards use a type of Implement that baa been found very successful In the control of the weeds. It consists of a beam resting on the ground, varying In width from eight to 12 feet, with a series of knives below, all Inclined Inward. Its draft Is light. It makes a wide cut. it can be worked close to the trees i and Is comparatively Inexpensive, hence starve out the underground parts. There are three methods that have given satisfactory results, name ly, clean cultivation, alfalfa growing and hog pasturing. There are other methods that have been tried, but not ith a large measure of success. These Include the placing of building paper, beet pulp, apple pomace, straw or manure on the ground to smother the weed growth, and also the application of chemicals.
