Our country is a nation of homes
Upon the peace, the prosperity and
the happiness of the American home,
rests the destiny of our Nation. De-
stroy that most sacred of our Ameri-
can institutions, and without the ag-
ency of war or famine, our Nation
will surely fall. The rattle of mus-
ketry upon our own soil, the shriek
of shell in mid-ocean or the awful
thunder of the cannon on Flanders'
Field die in an echo of grief and ter-
ror within the American home. The
mangled form of every American hero
who made the supreme sacrifice was
but a counterpart of a mangled,
bleeding, compassionate heart in an
American home, where death does not
conquer pain, but where tears and an
abiding faith in a Comforter Supreme
afford the only solace.
It is not merely a Nation which ob-
serves Memorial Day. It is a com-
munity of American Homes which
does honor to the memory of their
brave defenders! With bowed heads,
tender hands, grateful hearts, we lay
the most delicate, the most fragrant
flowers upon the graves of those who
are in their Eternal Home. Our col-
ors droop in sadness, the guns ring
out a salute for the dead and our
voices offer un prayers of thanksgiv-
ing that our homes are spared. Thus
do we honor those who do not live to
bless or eniov the blessings of the j

One of the largest crowds ever at-
tending a public speaking at Kinta
turned out at the Methodist church
last Monday night to hear Ex-Con-
gressman W. W. Hastings deliver his
address. Standing room was at a
premium at the church.
In one of the best of his campaign
speeches ,!ftr. Hastings reviewed leg-
is la'tion that had been passed by his
party since the foundation of this
government. He stated what kind of
legislation he voted for and opposed
during the eight years he was ln con-
gress. He plead with the people re-
gardless of how their grandfather
voted or their father, the people
should cast their vote this yeail for
the party that was to their best in-
Mr. Hastings, while congressman
was truly a representative of the
people of his district. He is one man
that neither republican nor democrat
man or woman, has ever criticized
for any vote he ever cast. The legis-
lation he introduced and worked to
have passed was such legislation that
would benefit the little man or the
farmer. He pointed with pride to
the rural credits, federal reserve, ag-
ricultural bill, warehouse bill, and
numerous other legislation that was
enacted under a democratic adminis-
tration and asked the people ifrthat
kind of legislation was in the inter-
est of the farmers and small men or
In referring to the Farm Loan
Banks legislation Mr. Hastings told
the people why this bill was not in
active operation now and intimated
that one reason was that the secretary
of the treasury was an immensely
wealthy man and as long as the peo-
ple had those kind of officials in
Washington they would not be in
svmpathy with legislation that would
effect the small man. He stated in
his belief that bill, the Farm Loan
Bank proposition, was one of the
greatest piece's of legislation that has
ever been enacted by any administra-
tion. The _ farmers' dream has al-
ways been lo own a farm, but under
presort conditions that is almost im- .
possible as the banks are unable to
carry him on a long time period loan.
The government was undertaking to
loan each individual enough money
to buy his farm at 5% per cent in-
terest, to run from five to forty years.
Mr. Hastings plans on visiting the
county about every ten days between
now and the primary. His next visit
will be in the east end of the county.
