C O-OPKKATIU.V IV KNGLANIJ.
The well-posted London correspondent of
the Montreal Herald makes some seemingly
well-considered remarks upon the history and
probable future of the co-operative movement
in England, which will be read with interest
by those concerned in our own co-operative
societies. He says :
I now propose to draw attention to the pro?
gress of the "cooperative" mania, which has
tor some time past been rampant in London.
To trace the history of the movement, we sholl
have to go back to the year 1844 when twenty
eight Rochdale operatives put together ?1
apiece, and, under the name of the Rochdale
Equitable Pioneers, started an experimental
co-operative store, to supply themselves and
their friends with common necessaries. Since
then the progress of the affair has been ex?
tremely rapid, oaring to the very energetic
steps taken bv'tbti founders to insure success,
. until at length, in 1867, the number of mem?
bers increased to uowards of six thousand,
while the profits were reckoned at over ?10,000.
The following table shows the number of mem?
bers, the amount of funds, business done, and
net profits during the years stated :
Tear. Members. Fund*. Business. Profits.

1867.6823 128,435 234,910 41,619
The marked procrea?, as stated in the above
table, is sufficient evidence of the estimation
in which the society is held, and of the benefit
which the members derive from it. lt must,
however, bo understood that the figures refer
to the Cent ral Board and its ten subordinate of?
fices alone, in all of which butchers' meat and
groceries were sold, with the addition of drape?
ries in two or three of the stores. Besides
these there are tailoring, shoemaking and clog
making societies, together with a corn mil!, all
conducted on the co-operative principle, the
whole of which have proved successful. On tho
other hand, the co-operative cotton manufac?
turing society, in connection with tho abovo,
bas, during the last three years, resulted in a
loss of upwards of ?13 000. This loss, how?
ever, has rea rited apparently from the great
fluctuation in the value of cotton and the grea
xisk attaching to speculations ot this kind dort
in g the last few years; nevertheless, it is stated
that tbe concern is now being worked at a
profit, lt has been established thirteen years,
and commenced operations with ninety-five
looms, bnt now possesses two mills containing
fifty thousand spindles, and a new loom-shea
with, eight hundred and seventy looms, fhe
following statistics of this society may prove
Tear. Funds. Business. Profits. Loss.

1866..110,866 152.893 .... 1,636
1867..118,990 142,796 .... 5,242
This, then, is the parent and model of all
other co-operative societies, the pioneer of the
system, and the one which has, without doubt,
met with the greatest success. The failure o?
the Cotton Manufacturing Society will be well
understood when we consider the alarming
crisis through which the cotton trade has
passed of late years, and the paralysis which
the trade suffered in consequence or the civil
war in America. We are assured, however, that
it is now being carried on at a profit, and its
Kmeters sanguinely look forward to bettor
es. There are many societies in the north
of England affiliated to the above, on the his
1 tory or which it wiU not be convenient to enter
bey OD d this passing mention.
To torn to tho metropolis, the Civil Servies
Supply Association is the society most worthy
of notico as being the largest and best conduct?
ed of the many institutions of the kind now
flourishing. Originally designed for the mem?
bers of the civil service, it has at length b en
thrown open to the general public on payment
of a small entrance fee. Nearly every article
that may be required is here supplied at a lit?
tle above cost price, and the profits are, at
stated intervals, distributed among the share?
holders. There are many other hke institu?
tions in London, bat I fear that statistics of
societies would prove of little service to yon.
From a housewife's point of view co-opera?
tion is an useful instruction, lt encourages
thrift, it saves money, but it docs not offer the I
same advantages and conveniences of the old j
system. It has succeeded simply because it
has adopted a "ready-money" system, and by
so doing has been enabled to undersell the re?
gular tradespeople, who are compelled to arork
on credit. It is certain that of late-through
the monetary panic of 1866-many incomes
bave been inconveniently curtailed, and
the possessors of such wer* compell?
ed to look about them in order to
keep their expenditures within their means.
lt was this circumstance that gave the
ce-operativo societies the first great start.
On the return of more prosperous times I
doubt moah if they will thrive so well. Another
reason of their success is the fact that, for the
most part, they do not undertake to deliver the
goods sold at the houses of their customers;
now wa know well that one great item of ex?
penditure io a large shop is the uumber of por?
ters, horses and carts, etc., required for such a
Sart ose. Thu delivery of their purchases by
ie tradesmen is a convenience to the public,
and for tbat convenience they most be prepar?
ed to p?7 * believe that the co-operative so?
cieties will have ii ^8Ume t^8,Pla?,bef?fre
long as, depend upon it, generauj ??e War ?'*
flee will not always be content to carry home
bis groceries under bis own arm. I am not
dispiraging the movement in any way. For a
T-erlnin class, for thrifty people willing to be?
come their OWJ porters, and run their own er?
rands, the societies are a great uoOn; but ?
oartoinly froli?ve tijej have assumed propor?
tions which a few years will OQrtaii greatly.

A GREAT SENSATION !-A GOOD SENSA?
PAIN CURER IN AN INSTANT!
In 1817 the great grand principle of stopping the
most excruciating pain in an instant, without em?
ploying such dangerous agents as Chloroform,
Opium, Morphine, Acontine, Ether, A-c, was first
made known in
RADWAY'S READY RELIEF.
This remedy accomplished this wonderful and de
Ughtful desideratum in all cases of external and In?
ternal pain. In an instant it afforded relief, the
moment it waa applied to the parts ot the body
where inflammation or pain existed-It at once re?
lieved the patient of thc most violent and excruciat?
ing pangs and throbs ol' pam, and imparted the de?
lightful sensation of ease and comfort.
Even' kind of pain, whether Rheumatism, Neu?
ralgia. Toothacho. Poins in the Chest, Sido, Lungs.
Stomach. Bowels, Kidneys, Spine, LCRH, Arms, Feot,
oue application was sufficient to kill aud exlerainatc
Taken internally, twenty drops to a teaspoonful
would cure, and will cure, Asiatic Cholera, Fever
aud Ague, Chills and Fever. Bilious colic, Inflam?
mation of the Bowels, Cramps, spasms, Diarrhoea,
Dysentery, and every pain that mav exist in tho in?
side of mau. woman or child: this was RAD WAY'.-?
BEADY RELIEF of 1847, and it is RADWA?'3 RE?
LIEF, greatly improved, in 18G8.
Wo then started it in its mission of relieving the
infirm, pain-stncken, sick, distressed and crippled
al all nations throughout tho world, and now to-day
it is used, patronized and rovercd as a household
necessity, in the paine s of Sultans, Emperors,
Kain os, Kings, High Priests, Nobles, as well us in
the cottages of tho laboring classes of every nation
>n thc face cf thc earth.
CONGESTION OF TILE LUNGS CURED IN
THIRTY MINUTES !
Important to Know how to Vsc "Rad.
way's Ready Relief" in Acute
and Dangerous Attacks!
MY OWN CASE.
On Saturday night, the 19th, I was violently seized
with Congestion of the Lungs. For a few days pre?
vious I felt a duU pain over my left lung, with
occasional couche, bul being actively engaged, paid
no attention to it. Whon seized, the pam was so
piercing, cutting and excruciating, that every breath
drawn was like a red hr t knife cutting my lung. Bo?
ing absent 1. om home, I sent out for three bottles or
RADWAY'S RELIEF, applied the entire lot to my
lung?, bock, shoulders, ?c., aud in a lew moments
got up couuter-irritation. .Hospirations were easy,
and, as thc skin became re J .tone J, all pain ceased.
In halt au hour I was tree from pain, und all signs
ol' Congestion, Ind rumUion, Ac, gone. This ls an
important cure. It is well that every one should
know how to usc this remedy in severe attacks. Ihe
same rule holds good ;n cates ot' Inflammation of
the Loins, Bowels, Kidneys and Stomach. Apply
the RELIi F irce.y; soak tho skin with it. It will
instantly secure the withdrawal of the iufiammation
to the surface, and persons now suffering may, in
THIRTY M'NUTES, bc free, from pain.
In cases where inflammation has existed for a
leu"th of time, in addition lo tho RrLLEF, take six
ot ?tADWAY'o 1TILS. Powder them. In half an
hour, in most cases, tiley will operate. If not, re?
peat thc dose. In one or two hours at the funnest
they will operate, and the patient soon get well, in
Bilious, Typhoid. Fever and Agno, this treatmeRt is
sure to cure. Let it be tried.
