The principal speaker of the evening
was Hon. Wilfred Wheeler of Boston",
secretary of tho Massachusetts state
board of Agriculture. His subject was
Marketing Horticultural Products. He
said in part:
"The problem of agriculture today
U one of production of large quantities
f special crops in large areas and
marketing through organization. The
East has Been the "West capture its
markets. It has done this through
large production and through efficient
organization. As a result, the West has
S oreed the East to organize nnd we
mut organize with a uniform product,
-m uniform package and uniform meth
ods of selling.
"Massachusetts produces $30,000,
000 worth of agricultural products an
nually and consumes $230,000,000 worth
of these products. It is not a question
with us of disposal of products, but a
question of how to dispose of them, and
I may say that most organizations for
disposal of crops begin at the wron"
end." 3
Mr. Wheeler then went into the de
tail of growing crops, the purchase of
supplies, farm management, credit fa
cilities, question of manager, question
of marketing, the disposal of surplus,
machinery on the farm and the pack
ages produce should take. He then said:
"The samo good management on one
farni is likely to succeed on another
xarm in the same, section. The labor of
the farm should be utilized on another

OUCH! BACKACHE!
.RUB LUMBAGO OR
STIFFNESS AWAY
Hub pain from tack with small trial
bottle of old, penetrating
"St. Jacob's OIL".
When your back is sore and lame or
lumbago, sciatica or rheumatism has
you ' stiffened up, don't suffer! Get a
small trial bottle of old, honest "St.
Jacob's Oil" at any drug store, pour a
little in your hand and rub it right
on your aching back, and by tho time
yon count fifty, the soreness aud lame
ness is gone.
Don't stay crippled! This soothing,
penetrating oil needs to be used only
oace. It takes the pain right out and
ends the misery. It is magical, yet
absolutely harmless and doesn't burn
the skin.
Nothing else stops lumbago, sciatica,
backache or rheumatism so promptly.
It never disappoints! Advt.
This Bible is not a meaningless pic
ture book. The illustrations serve a
distinct purpose. They enrich the
text, and they do more they intelli
gently explain it so that many a hith
erto obscure passage assumes to
thousands a new meaning through
these eye-teaching pictures.
THE REFORMER'S big distribution starts today, and now' everybody who has been
clipping the certificate should present it and come into immediate possession of this unique
ILLUSTRATED BIBLE. There is no other like it, for this Bible has illustrations PRINT
ED IN WITH THE TYPE, where Ihc-y .illuminate" (make plain) the texts they- accompany.
So it's the "bargain of bargains," r.c urder usual conditions this NEW ILLUSTRATED
BIBLE should retail for four or five times as much as is now asked. '

such arrangement cost would be re
duced and especially is this method
advisable in the packing season, as a
trained crew is far more effective than
green help. Co-operation in the uso of
machinery can be made to work out
satisfactorily and at a reduction of
cost below that of individual owner
ship. By marketing farm products
through au organization, capital is
more easily secured.
"One feature that might be utilized
in marketing products of the farm is
that of advertising, and this is sure to
come as organizations are effected."
The proceedings of the Horticultural
society, as well as the fruit show, will
continue through the week. .
Today there will be three sessions

beginning at 10 o'clock, the second at
2 o'clock and the third at 8 o'clock in
the evening. At each of these sessions
there will be addresses on topics per
