"We don't want any book-farmer

The man who made this speech at
the convention of the Nebraska Farm
Congress in Omaha the other day
stands unnamed. His name is :iot
given out in the chronicling of the
battle of the farmers against some
of the teachers sent out to educate
them. But in a few words he set
forth the position of many members
of our great producing population
with exceptional clearness.
Book-farmers they havt no time
for. It is a little difficult for a Ne
braska farmer of the type tha. has
had his shoulder to the wheel of pro
duction since the childhood days of
the state and to whom is due the
credit of boosting that state well up
toward the pinnacle of agricultural
supremacy to understand how it is

offices of the Brandeis stores with
the intent to install newer policies
of business administration. If bank
ers and business men and doctors
and lawyers who have established
their reputation and attained their
proficiency were to be suddenly in
formed that berueaus composed of
young graduates iu their businesse
and professions were to be establish
ed by a commiserating public who
wished to lift them out of their piti
ful status, there is some reason to
suspect that the bureau might re

quite be described as courteous
The farmer is the best of citizens.
He has a keen realization of the sim
pie but very pertinent philosophy
that "He who will not work may not
eat," and he is practically carrying
out his theory as best he can. He
doesn't attempt to tell the banker
how to bank, the merchant how to
buy or sell, the lawyer how to plead
or the doctor how to cure. He doesn't
do this because he is big enough to
realize that he doesn't know how to
do it. The mark of a really big man
is h.is ability to confine his teachings
to his own line.
We wish the farmer well. We
hope that his example of staying in
the production game may be imi
tated by other classes. While socie
ty may teach the farmer something,
the farmer. has something to teach
society as well.
And with all this, said by way of
explanation of the farmer's frame of
mind, and in justice to his most an
cient and honorable calling, the fact
remains that science has much te

The Best Cough Medicine
When a druggist finds that his
customers all speak well of a certain
preparation, he forms a good opin
ion of it and when in need of such
a medicine is almost certain to use
it himself and in his family. This
is why so many druggists use and
recommend Chamberlain's Cough
Remedy. J. u. Jones, a well known
druggist . of Cubruu. Ky., says. "I
