Neither the banker nor tlie merchant, tin farmer nor the
speculator, the manufacturer nor tli railroad magnate, can
justly say, I am the "it"—the great and only force. They are
all great forces in this our great civilization. Tney are all
useful and essentil, and one could hardly do without the other.
The farmer may boast that he feeds the world and gives trade
to the merchant anil the railroad. What would you do if the
farmers were to quit for one year? That would be bad, it is
true. Then, suppose the railroads would say, 'we will stop
every wheel turnine for a season." Then what would you
farmers do? You could not haul your wheat, your cotton and
grain across the continent to marKet, or to the seaboard.
What would vou do away out here in these treeless, t'uelless
lands, homeless, merctiantless, etc? So you see .vou are Dot

cotton one cent per pound. Ves, we are all great, but we are
greater all together, and neither one very much alone.
If manufacturing should shut up shop, we would be turned
back to the old lire place, and butch oven, and wooden mould
board plows ot primeval days, and our proud navy would go
back to the drift log. No one greater than all the rest.
Not A Century Ago
Great lawyers wrote profound documents and intricate
briefs with quiil pens, and dried the writing with sand pep-
pered from a tin can, as blotter pads were unknown. No let
ter boxes on the corner for convenience then. It cost eight-
een cents to send a letter from .sew ^ork to Boston, and
twenty-tive cents to send a letter from Boston to PhideJphia,
and more for long distance. Now .we can send a letter acv
where in the United States for two cents, and around the
world for a lew cents. Then women were sold as chatties in
parts of the world, and men were imprisioned for debt, and
the average school teacher Knew less about the Mississippi
valley than the.v know now of the interior of Africa. Yes?
Nut a hundred years ago two stage coaches carried all the
travel between New York and Boston, and six days to make
the trip. Women cooked on open tire places, baked bread in
Dutch ovens and hung pots on cranes, to boil. Young ladies
walked to church with their fellows, and carried their shoes-
and put them on before entering the church- Cook stoves
were unknown. Tallow candles were the perfection of ilium -
nation. Coal oil was unknown and John D. was not yet, and
a man would have been murdered if he had introduced the
telephone or an automobile. They cut their wheat with reap
hooks; a binder or a reaper would have been witchery. Then
our congressmen made laws in the interest of the people in-
stead of trusts-
