The Blackfoot Optimist (Newspaper) - March 11, 1912, Blackfoot, IdahoMondays the Blag Root Optimist official paper of City of Blackfoot and of Bingham county Idaho. Vol v no. 23 Blackfoot bin Ham county Idaho monday March 11, 1912 thursdays $2.00 per year a Leiter from Hugh enough thl letter be of interval to the Farmer of thle dec ton and the few Pointa herein put Forth should be consid ered by him sheep Camp Elco co., Nevada. Or. Karl Brown Edt. Blackfoot Optimist Friend Krai i receive the Optimist pretty Reg ular and to me out Here it is like a news letter from Home and i cannot help but notice that. Between the Pessimist end Optimist difference is droll for the Optimist secs the doughnut while Tho Pessimist sees the Hole. O or sheep have wintered Good on the tango Here and lasses Are Light and the thin end is Small. Considering the Winter which has been a hard one on account of being so cold and dry the sheep have done remarkably Well. No More High priced Hay for me the take Tho Trail and Winter Range in Nevada first. It seems strange to me that the Hay producers of Black fact and Vicinity will hold their Hay so High in the fall of the year that sheep men Are compelled to go elsewhere for their feed then As soon As the sheep Are out of the country they will drop their Price from $5.00 or $7.00 per ton the prices they held last fall to $8 or $4.50 and sell it to the Hay Bailers and the difference Between the two by Ere is that the sheep men put the Hay Back on the Field in the shape of manure which ought to he Worth $1.00 per ton to the Farmer a t least the sheep help exterminate the weeds and the farm As a whole 1b bettered considerably. Besides the sheep Man buys his cats his potatoes butter eggs and meat of the Farmer rents the farm Erst wagons hires his horses employs help and pays Fer tile Farmers Hay from the top Straw on the stack to the Bottom Straw while the Hay Bailer who is a Good fellow and god knows what the termer would do without him especially this last Winter pays from $2.00 to $3.00 per ton lass than the feeder. Digs the choicest Hay out of the stack and pays for the actual pounds he bails and hauls off and in lots of cases leaves one halt of the stack on the Farmers hands to do the Liest he can with or let it r o t now there is Plant of sheep and cattle own in Blackfoot and Vicinity to con be every Pound of Hay raised and re is plenty of sheep and cattle own up t what would sooner teed a t Home than bit the Trail and go elsewhere int be cannot keep borrowing Money from the Bank continually to feed on had better get Cut of the Stock business. Another thing if the sheep buys the tenders Hay in the Tell and the Winter hods out late and the beep out Baa got to have a a Little Bay up g Ink to me Only w Ith Bine eyes.

The american country town with its Broad Circle of friendships with its close homely simple relations Between men with its spirit of co operation and with its economic status permits the creation of no indecently Rich and no abjectly poor the Amer clan country town it seems to me is the Mast Hope Ful of our american institutions. To destroy that town furnishing the Market for the Farmer and giving steady employment to labor Means a re organization of our commercial social and Industrial life that wll a be Rev of unitary Ait More a matter of doubt Ful value tie mail order House therefore be comes a menace to this country. The mail order House unrestricted will kill our smaller towns creating great cit ies with their terrible contrasts of Elf with their cruel social relations with their inevitable caste feeling that comes from the presence of strangers who Are Rich and poor living Side by Side.
