When a farmer takes his produc
to market and sells It for, say. a dol
lar a bushel, ho Is dependent upon thd
honesty of two measures the dollar
and tho bushel.
Tho other day n crossroads store
keeper got Bent to jail for manipu
lating a trick bushol basket with a
falso bottom that would slide up and
down in a way that was grand, gloomy
and mysterious. When using It to
measure stuff ho bought from a farm
er, he'd secretly shovo tho bottom
down until It hold at least a bushel
and a quarter, but ho would only
credit him with a bushel. Tho buying
power of tho farmer's product was
thereby depreciated by about twenty
Finally tho farmers theroabout3 got
wise to the fact that tho only way
thoy could got. what was coming to
thorn was to enforce a reliable stand
ard ot measurement. So thoy put a
good stiff jail penalty on using a
fako measure, laid for that store
keeper wtth tho trick baskot and sent
him to prison.
Politicians In Europe have boon
manipulating tho other measure the
money measure In much the same
way. Somo of them In Araorlca want
to tamper likewise wtth tho dollar.
Here Is about tho way It would work
out Supposo, whon tho farmer
brought his product to market, tho
baskot measure was honest enough
and ho got a dollar bill for each
bushol. Ho'd tako his dollars home
and savo thorn. Porhapa he planned
to buy sumo land noxt his own for a
thousand dollars, and tlgurod that In
a year or so he could mako It.
" But meanwhllo tho politicians start
to manipulate the base ot tho cur
rency. Tnoy wouiu cnango u irom us
gold standard to a flat money plan
from a gold guarantee to tho mere
say-so of tho government that a piece
of paper was worth a dollar. Tho
farmer wouldn't be watching the
money-polltlclans. Ho would bo too
busy raising things. At tho end ot
tho year he has his thousand dollars.
Ho takos them to tho landowner and
Bays, "I'll buy your land now hore'a
a thousand dollars."
But the landowner would say, "That
is papor monoy my land Is worth
ono thousand dollars gold tho gov
ernment has printed so much papor
money folks haven't much conlldonco
in It. But I am willing to tako a
chanco If you will glvo mo n dollar
and a quarter In paper monoy for
each gold dollar's valuo ot my land
In othor words, I'll give you my land
for J1.250 dollars paper."

Soft monoy would bo only another
way for tho money-politicians to hand
tho farmer tho samvi dirty deal as tho
baskot manipulator. In tho first caso
the farmer unknowingly gavo a bushol
