dlth, tho now secretary of agrlcul
turo, who stylos hlmsolf the advortls
ing inanngor of the department of ng
rlculturo. According to Mr. Moredlth
tho rubo who formerly bought the gold
oncK, or tno guuioio yoKoi who pur
clinsod tho Masonic tomplo for ?47
or paid $15 to seo Marshall Field's
building turn around, woro wlso mon
ns compared with tho general public
today. By Its own complacency and
lack of fighting spirit, the public has
fastened upon Itself 'present outrag
eous pricos and a dollar worth 'only
30 cents. Ton, or oven fivo years ago,
a man hod to bo assured ho was get
ting leathor, stylo and workmanship
when ho paid $5 for a pair of shoes.
Today ho kowtows to some lnaolonl
clerk who throws a :air of varnished
paper shoos at him nnd peels $15 off
his bank roll without a whimper.
Tho samo goos for grocorlcs and
meats and everything else.
Mr. Moredlth says tho blamo for the
high cost of living must bo laid at tho
door of tho distributor and ho has a
trunkfull of figures to iprovo it . To
day there is moro grain, moro leathor,
more beef nnd hog meat, moro wool,
and cotton, yet tho gulllblo Amorlcan
public Is led to bollovo till thoso com
modities are short and thoroforo cost
Tho now Bocrotnry scoffed at tho
Idee, of a ferncrs' strike. Ho depre
cates such talk as foolish, as farmers
are. not tho sort of citizens who will
strike. All they aftk Is something like
n squaro deal, although they nro not
getting It now.
"Pricos of foodstuffs, shoos, cloth
ing nnd other necessities, in mnny
cases aro 100 por cent higher than
they should bo," ho declared, "but
tho remedy for this condition Is not In
my department. That is a tnnttor for
tho dopartmont of Justice."

Why They Are Favored By

Here is the general reason-
Farmers everywhere have con
