Farmers and Workers of MilesCity and Vicinity
Sw Commencing Saturday, October 18, 1919, a concerted drive I
will be made by the Equity Co-Operative Association for the pur
* pose of erecting a building large enough to house the ever expand
ing business, and also to provide meeting halls for the many
unions of the city. A site has been secured for the building.
Committees from the Railway Federation and the Trades and e
SLabor Council are actively co-operating with the Equity store.
* This campaign will be opened by a meeting in the Wibaux Hall a
Saturday evening, October 18th, at 8 o'clock. Workers and farm
ers and their families are invited to attend this meeting. A musi- n
cal program, speaking and good social entertainment will be pro- a
* vided. All come prepared to enjoy a good time. U
This store is operated on the Rochdale Plan which provides I
that each stockholder will receive 8 per cent on each share of
stock, and will also receive a patronage dividend on each dollar's U
* worth of merchandise purchased.
None but workers and farmers are eligible to membership.
Shares may be purchased on the installment plan. Payments may
be made as low as $5.00 down and $5.00 per month.

The workers have been led to be

that labor and capital are partners;
that labor could not "do without"

One of the great contributing
causes to this awakening has been
the development of the Co-operative
movement throughout the world.
Beginning with the operation of
stores on the co-operative plan, the
workers have found that they can
manage wholesale houses, creamer
ies, grain elevators, flour mills, bak
eries, factories of all kinds, steam
ship lines, and even large tracts of

This idea of production and dis
