The heavy work of the year is practically finished, tn most sections the harvests have already been garnered. And while there" is still a lot of crops yet to be brought in, there isn't anything more that the farmer can do to improve this yQar's production. He has a little time on his hands now for re- laxation. So this is "county fair time", at least all over the North. The trotters and pa- cers are bein, groomed, and the sulkies overhauled for the contests on the half- mile track. In spite of the automobile, the horse is still the farmer's friend and pet. How many hundreds of thousands of farm boys and girls are looking forward to their chances of winning some of the in- numerable 4-H Club prizes at the County Fair or other places of competition? It is these youngsters and their work to whom the nation looks for the continuous betterment of farm conditions. For city folks the vacation season ends on Labor Day, but the farmer's holiday time comes after that. The only draw- back, from the point of view of the boys and girls on the farm, is that in so many places school begins before the: pleasant September weather is half over. If there were only end season in the year and we could have our choice, we. would pick the autumn. This time of year, from Septemb to Christmas, when the days are getting shorter and nihts are getting colder, and tha sun is getting lower, when the season's work is practic- ally over and there is time to think about politics and next yaar's crops, and gen- erally take life easy for a while, certainly seems to be the most contentful time of the whole year. - THE TAIL OF A SHIRT It seems to us as if almost everybody must bel pretty near out of clothes by this time. We don't see how the necessity for new clothes can be met without having some effect upon ganeral business con- ditiona We notice in the fashion papers and on the streets that women's skirts are getting lorrger and thdir sleeves big- ger. That ought to mean a larger demand for fabrics of all kinds, and that, in turn, ought to mean a better demand for cot- ton and wool and silk and rayon, out of which to manufacture the fabrics. American women are not going to dress out of fashion very long, and while it was easy enough to cut down the long skirts and cut off the lorr s-]eeves, it is not going to be so easy to make over a short-skirted sleeveless dress into one with full sleeves and a long skirt. A political economist pointefl out many years ago that if he could be the Emperor of China and issue a decree that every Chinaman's Shirt tail must be three inches longer, it would double the business of the Manchester cotton mills. ":" BACK TO NATURE It seess that one of the beneficial re sults of this long period of unsettled busi- ness conditions and industrial unemploy- ment has been to forca upon large num- bers of people, who had never realized it before, that there is no safety or security for most folks if they get too far away from the soil and the sea. A tholght along this line has been em- phasized by the State of New York grant- ing fishinff licenses free to the unemploy- ed, so that they may at least have the op- portunity of catchin part of their food from the rivors and lakes, bays and ponds of the state. Then one reads about various parts all over the country where thousands of un- employed are being ancouraged to pan out gold from the sil. Thcre iz g;cld almost everywhere in the United States. Most of it doe, sn't run enough gold to the ton: of earth or rock to pay for the expense of setting up regular mining equipment, but many thousands are making good wages panning out placer gold in the west. Hundr6ds of communities gave help and encouragement during the past summer to the unemployed who were willing and able to work small garden patches and so hdlp to feed themselves and their families. All such projects are, of course, merdly temporary expedients, but out of them it is reasonable to expect that a gr-aat,m v :cinitYweek attended, the State Fair last in Sringfield.

THEWAY OF LIFE merville, and Mr. and Mrs. Maus and granddaughter, Betty By Bruce Barton A MAN COMES OUT The days of Jesus' doubt are set down as forty in number. It is easy to imagine that lonely strugglO. He had left a good trade among people who knew him and trusted him--and for what? To become a wandering preacher, talking to folks who never heard of him? And what was he to talk about? How, with his lack of experience, should he find words for his message? Would they listen? Had- n't he pctrhaps made a mistake ? Satan, says the narrative, tempted him, saying; "You are hu'rv; here are stones. Make them into bread."--The temptation of material success. It was entirely un- necessary for him to be hungry ever. He had a good trade; he knew well enough that his organizing ability was better than Joseph's. He couldrbuild up a far more successful business and acquire comfort and wealth. Why not? Satan comes in again, according t the narrative, taking him up into a high mountain and showing him the kin,2:loms of the world. "All these can be yours, if you will only compromise." He could go to Jerusalem and enter the priesthood; that was a sure road to distinction. He could do good in that way, and lave the satisfaction of success as well. Or he might enter the public service, ,and seek political leadership. There was plenty of discontent to be capitalized, and he knw the farmer and the laborer; he was one of them; they would listen to him. For forty days and nights the incessant fight went on, but once settled, it was set- tled forver. In the calm of that wilder- ness there came the majestic conviction which is the very soul of leadership--the faith that his spirit was linked with the Eternal, that God had sent him into the world to do a work which no one else could do, which--if he neglected it--would never be done. Magnify this temptation scene as g.reatly as you will; say that God spoke more clearly to Jesus than to any who has ever lived. It is true. But to every man of vision the clear voice speaks4there is no great leadership where there is not a rays: tic. Nothing splendid has ever been ac- hieved except by those who dared believe that something inside themselves was sup- crier to circumstances. To choose the sure thing is treason to the soul .... If this was not the meaning of the forty days in the wilderness, if Jesus did not have a real temptation which might have ended in his going back to th bench in Nazareth, then the forty days' struggle has no real si, g, nificance to us. But the temptation was real, and he conquerel. The youth who had been a carpenter stayed in the wilderness, a man came out. Not the full-fledged master who, within the shadow of the cross could cry, "I have overcome the world." He had still much growth to make, much progress in vision and self-confidence. But the beginnings were there. Men who looked upon him from that hour felt the authority of one who has put his spiritual house in order,: and nows clearly what he is about. State Fair boosters have no complaint this year to register against the weather man. The country may be wetter than ever but the State Fair was one of the driest in years. (In somerespects at least.)
