TARIFF DID NOT HELP
IMPEDIMENTS IN THE WAY
Shortly after the republican administration came into
power it passed an emergency tariff law to keep the farmer
quiet. This emergency tariff was to prevent the decline in the
price of farm products, especially wheat, which the repub-
licans blamed upon the democratic administration during the
In February No. 2 red wheat was quoted around $1.80 a
bushel. It is now selling around $1 a bushel. December
wheat is even less than $1 a bushel. The emergency tariff
has not had the slightest effect in preventing the lowering of
the price of farm products.
When the industrial workers in the cities cannot purchase
their product because of insufficient pay and a surplus gath-
ers, they are thrown out of work.
The farmers' products immediately drop in price, for the
city worker and his family exist on the smallest possible ex-
penditures. This is especially true during the present period
of "republican prosperity." And both the farmers and the
city workers should make a note of it.

THE CHEMICAL UNION
"Ovecii nirii should man-) nitrogen women."—Dr. It. Kendrick Smith,
Oh, lovely nitrogenous lady,
Each oxygen atom in me
With love is ariame, and demands that you name
The day when our wedding shall be.
Yea! even the tiny electrons
Of which the said atoms are built,
Would droop in despair if a maiden so fair
Were to prove a perfidious jilt.
So hark to my passionate pleading,
Let our hearts and our souls have communion—
With never a sigh as the years hasten by—
In a perfectly chemical union.
I wedded, before I had wisdom
A maid of the oxygen sort.
Our marital life was a record of strife
Which ended, of course, in a court.
Identical atoms composed us
Our wants were exactly the same,
It's a fatuous plan for an oxygen man
To marry a nitrogen dame.
We both wanted fat for our dinner,
Unlike Mr. Spratt and his spouse,
And for seven long years, filled with curses and tears.
Our rows made a wreck of the house.
But you're a nitrogenous maiden;
Your atoms are friendly with mine;
For the fat '11 be keen: you'll be strong for the lean.
And our dinners will all be divine.
We'll dwell in delightful contentment,
According to chemical law.
And our joys will increase in molecular peace.
With never the sign of a flaw.
So prithee, accept my proposal,
Send me word that you'll surely be mine.
We'll be happy through life as a husband and wife,
For our atoms will get along fine.

SALARIKS OF RAILROAD OFFICIALS
The fifth instalment of trunk line railroad officials whose
annual salaries are $20,000 or over are printed below. It's a
fine list. Note the name of the president of the Missouri Pa-
cific. Mr. Johnson, who pulls down a little more than $60,000.
That's $5,000 per month, a little more than $192.00 per day.
Now we are not acquainted with Mr. Johnson, personally,
but we'll bet our ears against a dime with a hole in it, that
Mr. Johnson thinks that every man on his road who does
enough work to raise a drop of perspiration or get his hands
uoiled, is getting too much wages, and that all the difficulties
•which his road has encountered have been due to the exorbitant
and princely salaries which the men who actually do the work
are enjoying. Mr. Johnson is probably receiving more money
now than he was when these figures were compiled in 1917-
but the more he gets the less he Mill think other people shall
have. Save these lists. More are to follow.
