When you walk into your office, it
is often said that all considerations
of sentiment or friendship must be
left behind. There are great rewards,
though, that come from developing
business friendships, and particularly
on forming trade associations with
the business men of your own town.
A business man may feel that he
saves a few cents by going to some
distant city to place an order for
eome supply. Let him first look at
what he has lost by giving his money
to build up the town he never saw.
If he had ordered his supply at
home, he would have helped to
make other home industries prosper
Perhaps still more important than
that, looking at things from a purely
elfish consideration, is the fact that
when a business man buys his sup
plies of a home dealer, he makes bus
iness friendship that in most cases is
very valuable. The man whom he
has patronized will do anything in his
power to return the favor.
A genuine business ally made for
you in this way, is working for you in
times when you know it not. People
discuss the merits of this or that
store far more than the merchant re
alizes. The business man who buys
all his supplies at home whenever
possible will find that he has a friend
at court in many widely separated cir
cles, who want him to succeed be
cause the home community profits by
If you want favors from the local
government, if you want to stand
well with the working classes, if you
need accommodation in times of fin
ancial strain, you can't have too
many friends athome who will say a
good word for you. The supply firm
a hundred miles away never returns
you one thing, except the smiles of
its salesmen. Those don't count
THE FARMERS AND CORNERS
The United States Supreme Court,
Jbaving laid down the principle that
corners in food, clothing material,
etc, are in violation of the United
States law, it remains to be seen
whether the speculators can continue
to gamble with the poor man's loif
of bread and cotton nightshirt as the
While public sentiment is very gen
erally against corners, some rather
plausible arguments in their favor
have always been advanced. It is
said that they enable the farmers to
get more for their cotton and grain,
and tint they prevent foreign coun
tries trom getting our crop supplies
at too low prices.
But does the farmer get the benefit
What is the farmer doing when the
Btorms of financial frenzy, resulting
from attempts to corner the market
break loose on the produce exchange?
The history of these flurries shows
that the corner rarely happens until
the farmer has disposed of most of
his crop. In the big attempt to cor
ner the wheat market in 1909, it was
claimed that but 21 per cent of the
grain remained in the farmer's hands.
The farmer is pretty thoroughly im
pregnated with that ancient maxim
of cold prudence, "Let well enough
alone." When he sees the bulls push
ing the price of his produce up to sky
rockety figures, does he hustle down
to the telegraph office, and wire his
agents to take a moderate profit"
Rarely, so far as our information
His instinct under such circum
stances would seem to tell him to let
the good work go on. He watches
the operations of the brokers much
as he watches the beneficent action
of the rain and the sun on his fields,
with the feeling that there is nothing
he can do to interfere with any bene
fit to himselt. He waits, hoping for
still higher prices.
The history of these speculations
suggests that the farmer does not us
ually sell until prices begin to waver
and droop. By the time that his or
der gets in, the psychological moment
has passed, and much less is realized
than, could have been obtained a short
The great objection to corners is
not merely that they raise the price
to the consumer, hut that they dis
courage the weaker mills and facto
ries from buying raw material, lead
ing to a general stoppage of manufac
turing and milling.

Minnesota has a pure oil law and
pays thousands of dollars to salaried
inspectors and still our oil contains a
lot of water at any rate you will find
a portion of it formed into ice.
Minnesota has no pure seed law and
therefore the adulterated and inferior
grades of seeds are dumped into our
markets. All the diffeence is, we
save salaries of men who would be
supported to test them. More than
one farmer stands ready to say that
he paid 6 and 7 dollars a bushel for
seed corn and less than 40 per cent
of it germinated.
