The Automobile Bringa CK)
There are approximately 7,500,000
automobiles in the United States and
there are almost that many farmers.
In this year, when the most expen
sive crop ever raised by the American
farmer seems likely to pile up on hts
bunds for lack of a profitable market,
a way is suggested to reduce surplus
by attracting automobile trade direct
to the farms.
Most city automobile owners drive
hito the country once a week or more,
and every farm located on an automo
bile rood has dozens or hundreds of
possible customers for Its fruits, vege
tables, poultry and eggs passing Its
gate every day. The war mnde the
market?.basket popular, and the ordi
nary automobile owner who keeps
house would be perfectly willing to
toke home a bushel or more of pro

"Fresh Fruit One-Fourth Mlle."
"Sweet Cider 60 Rods."

"Fresh Eggs 20 Rode."

Co-Operative Marketing Saved Alaba
ma Farmer? $30 to $37.50 Per
Ton on Peanuts.
One of the functions of the county
agent under the co-operative extension
system carried on by the United States
Department of Agriculture and the
state colleges of agriculture ls to de
vise new channels for marketing stock

lower than the fnrmors deemed profit

Children especially nowadays learn to

tial to building up even a transient
trade In farm products is that the
prices shall be reasonable, preferably
a shade below city market prices,
and that the goods shall be of honest

be placed on the latter feature. T?tere
