The Arrow Saturday mentioned
the killing of Rex Sansing on the J
mountain near Park Hill, but was
unable to feet any of the facts in |
the case. We said his body was;
found in the automobile pierced by
three bullets and that there was no
witness to the killing, some of which
was fact, and part erroneous, ow-j
ing to the fact that people in that j
section are not inclined to talk oil
such occasions, but will refer one
over the phone to someone else, anil

shortly after arriving there. Since

the ultimate consumer to receive
these products at an equally fair
price, without enriching a horde of
useless and unscrupulous middle-
men, speculators and profiteers.
If all of the farm societies and
clubs are amalgamated into one
great central organization—similar
to the American Federation of La-
bor—its power will be so tremen-
dous that no Interest and no per-
son can politically or commercially
survive its dis^eaaure.
Its millions of votes could elect
any or all government and state of-
ficials—H could dictate every act of
congress—It could place its own
Judges on the bench—It could send
its own men to congress and tho
state legislatures—It could hnve
only such laws as those it might
originate and approve.
If this new organization follows
out Its announced plan of looking
after the Interests of those of the
people who are now between tho
corporations and the labor unions,

may well take to cover.

perfect peace he keeps tho ones
whose thoughts and hearts are

pleasantness, his paths are peace,

So for its cheer, for its gift of
peace, so for the record of blessings
felt and tliOBe in prospect yet, the
people give their heartfelt thanks,
making this day that sees other na
tions wrecked hy the battle's effect,
a day peculiar for Its cuuse for
praise. And thus, though sober.V.
will the cheer abound in myriad
hearts on this great day for praise
