THE gentleman farmer Ir the Ideal of probably half of the hard
working business men of the crowded city, and many college men
who fit themselves for a placo In the business world change their
plans and go to the country Instead.
"Back to the farm movement" Is one of the popular trends of the
present time. And one dreams of sitting on tho wide verandas and the
foreman tells you that there will bo wonderful crops. The cattle and pigs
are fat and the horses are sleek and well fed; tho birds are singing merrily
in the leafy trees, tho violets are In bloom, your motor Is drlvon up to the
door and you "go to town" to do the marketing.
But let me tell you some of the exciting thlngR that really happan.
Just ask Mr. Charles Saunders, Mr. Myron Learned, Mr, Wayland Magot-.
Mr. Louis Nosh, Mr. A. J. Love or Mr. Hubert Owen, all of whom havo
heeded the call, "Back to nature and the farm."
Mr. Saunders can tell you why ho missed a dinner encasement tha
man who took care of the cows, went to town and did not return, bo Mr.
Saunders remained at homo; no dairy maids being around, he did the
Mr. Magee can tell you how easy. It Is to handle a dozen or more of
tramp harvest hands, who have been paid off Saturday afternoon and re
turn most all hours of the night and morning for a "quiet Sunday In the
country." Fortunately, Mr. Magee was quite an athloto at tho University
of Chicago, and he has plenty of opportunity to use his prowess.
Mr. Hubert Owen, since leaving tho University of Nebraska, has pur
chased a farm near Missouri Valley. During tho cold woather this spring
a mother pig and a litter of six young ones died of exposure, leaving one
husky little orphan piggy. The little fellow was duly christened Clarenco
and was brought up on a bottle. He soon became very chummy with
Jerry, a beautiful Scotch collie of noblo birth, but the class distinction and
the nationality seemed but to bind the friendship tho closer. "Where
thou goost, there go 1" seomed to be their motto, and the well-groomed
collie even tries to keep Clarence's face clean.
Recently Clarence decided to see a bit of the world and started for
Missouri Valley: Jerry, a bit apprehensive, accompanlod him. They ar
rived safely at the famous railroad town, but It was too noisy for Clar
ence, so after going through tho town he started off In the other direc
tion and arrived at a farm three miles the other side of tho city. Tha
farm quite pleased him and he was disposed to remain, for Jerry still ac
companied him, so he was not lonesome. In the moantlmo Mr. Owen
started efter the strange travelers and found little difficulty in following
their trail, for many people had soen them. After a long tramp he found
them at the other farm and started home, driving the grunting Clarenco
before him. Back through the town thoy went and on toward home,
"Gee, I hope the frat men don't hear of this," Mr. Owen said to him
self as he saw the amused faces of everyone he met. Clarence Is threat
ened with being locked up with the other pigs If he develops any more

Gravel Declares Countries Not Sure

HUMOR IN AMBASSADOR'S JOB
Former ItepreaentatlTe In Sweden
Telia Rome of the Pnnny Thlnst
Peculiar to the Work In
That all Europe Is Inclined to retard
us with a suspicious eye and that In a
case llkft the present difficulty with
Mexico tho European countries aro Im
bued with the belief that we are actuated
by no other motive than that of meed,
na stated by Colonel Charles II. Graves
of Duluth, former ambassador to Bweden,
In his address on tho "Diplomatic Service"
at the Commercial club, at noon, He men
tioned this only Incidentally In connec
tion with bis discussion on the function
of an ambassador. He said an ambassa
dor could do a great deal tinder the cir
cumstances In setting aright the mind of
any European country on the subject In
"We cannot send a special envoy to nil
the countries of Europe at a time like
this," he said, "In order to tell them the
American attitude In this particular In
ternational action that Is attracting at
tention. 80 It Is the function of the am
bassador to do this, He has been In the
foreign country for some time, Ho Is
known nnd respected, If he Is the right
kind of an ambassador he ha made
friends and formed Intimate relationships
with the men of affairs In the country
to which he Is ambassador, so that a few
words from him nt a tlmo like this will
do much toward setting the mind of that
country aright on wh.at our problem really
I with a country like Mexico."
Ilntnorna !lilc of Job.
Colonel Grave gave much of hi time
to a discussion of some of the humorous
phases of an ambassador's life. He gave
his personal experience with a woman
who had written to him asking that ho
get her a divorce at once from her hua
hand In Sweden, an she was then n
America and had met a man she wished '
Another experience was that with a
woman In Philadelphia, who had writ
ten to her lover, u Mr. Peterson, In
Stockholm. She wrote Ambassador
Graven a pathetic letter saying Peterson
had not answered her last letter and sho
wanted the ambassador to look him up
at once and ascertain the reason.
He replied that the Potersons were more
numerous In Stockholm even than tho
Smiths In Philadelphia.
Again a colored woman culled on him
at Stockholm and secured passports to'
go Into Russls.
"I'm an artist," she explained, as her
reason for wanting to go to Ituasia.
"Water color or oil?" asked the am
bassador. "Oh, no, sir," she explained. "I's a
pong nnd dance artist."
I nut thl wa not the last of her. In a
tew week tne ambassador received tt
tetegram from her at St. Petersburg
reading, "Wire at once money for fare
back to Stockholm."
