ST. PAUL MARKET
Under Former Shipping Arrangements
South St. Paul Livestock Market
Glutted on Wednesday.
PRICES FORCED TOO LOWSaturday
Sixty Carloads Shifted to Other Mar-
ket Days by Combined Action
of Farmers and Roads.
St. Paul, Dee. 29.Losses amount
ing at times to $2,000 a day, suffered
by northwest livestock shippers, may
be wiped out in time as a result of a
joint investigation undertaken by
farmers, railroad officials, packers
and stockyard operators, the Minne
sota Farm Bureau federation said to
The investigation showed that be
cause of improper arrangement of
shipments, the South St. Paul market
is glutted on some days and under
supplied on others. Records covering
1920 and the first six months of 1921
show that shipments reaching the
market on Wednesday were from 30
to 55 per cent larger than arrivals on
Tuesday and Thursday. Price records
for the same period show that hogs
brought an average of five cents a
pound less on Wednesday, due proba
bly to the large supply. The differ
ence between total prices received by
shippers for hogs on the market on
Tuesday and Thursday, and prices re
ceived by those whose hogs were on
the market Wednesday, has amounted
to as high as $2,000, according to the
investigation department of the state
farm bureau federation.
As a result of tiie investigation,
railroads have changed stock train
schedules so that 50 to 60 cars of
stock which formerly arrived on Wed
nesday now reach the market on
Thursday. Since these changes were
made, 17.6 per cent of all stock arriv
ing each week has reached the market
on Tuesday, 20.4 per cent on Wednes
day, and 17 per cent on Thursday.
HOWARD TO SPEAK.
Delegates to Federation Convention
Face Three Days of Hardwork,
Also Night Sessions.
St. Paul, Dec. 29.How representa
tives of farming districts changed the
course of legislation in the last session
of congress and forced passage of
agricultural laws will "be told by
James R. Howard, president of the
American Farm Bureau federation,
when he addresses the third annual
state convention of the Minnesota
federation in St. Paul next week.
Mr. Howard is to speak at the first
day's session of the convention, in the
auditorium of the College of Agricul
ture. He has chosen the Minnesota
convention for the presentation of an
official statement on the farm bureau
federation's attitude toward the agri
cultural bloc, the work of other blocs,
and a farmers' legislative program for
Congressman Sydney Anderson,
chairman of the joint congressional
committee investigating agricultural
conditions, is to speak on the results
of the inquiry.
January 3, the opening day of the

announcements received by the county
farm bureau. Two night sessions

a state agricultural program for 1922,
and another to devote its whole at
tention to the farm credit situation.
In the Good Old Days.
Odd, what a queer jumble of unim
portant things stick in the memory!
In winter my mother used to hang
about my nock a r-cd flannel bag of
asafetida to ward off infection. She
^believed in this as firmly as in the ad
visability of seeing the new moon over
her right shoulder. The pervasive
aroma of forty such amulets in an
overcrowded school room I recall to
this day, but not with poignant regret
for the passing of this superstition.
Much as I enjoyed watching my ma
ternal grandmother roll into her back
yard every spring a hugh iron pot in
which she concocted soft soap from the
winter's accumulation of fat, my recol.
lection of the product is not so agree
ablethe stuff was sometimes intro
duced into my ablutionsthat I should
care to impose its manufacture or use
upon any child of these times. This
grandmother was a Virginian, thor
oughly skilled in the household arts,
but I am constrained to think that in
these days she would be very quick to
accommodate herself to the changed
conditions.Meredith Nicholson in
