PROMPT SELLING PAYS
WliolcHoinr Arivire to 1'armer In View of
The Wisconsin Farmer offers some
wholesome advice to farmers in view
of the present condition of business
and money matters. It says:
1. Many farmers are doing them
selves very great injury by losing
confidence in the financial system of
the country, and especially in the
soundness of the banks in their
neighborhood, and, therefore, with
drawing their deposits, and thus tak
ing them out of the general circula
tion. It is within the power of the
farmers of the United Slates at any
time to bring on a panic which will
affect the entire country, and other
countries as well, by simply taking
their deposits ojt of the hanks and
keeping them at home. This in
volves such a violent contraction of
currency that it is felt in every ave
nue of business. Farmers generally
believe that in so doing they are
making sure of what they have, act
ing with supreme conservatism, and
as they term it. "making themselves
safe," There is nothing they could
do that would make them more un
safe, for the reason that anything
disturbing public confidence necessa
rily stops business, throws labor out
of employment, increases crime,
stops productions in other lines and
robs him of his own market. If the
laboring men cannot get employment
they cannot buy farm products, and
as a matter of course prices of farm
products must fall and the reaction
comes upon the farmer in full force.
The result of it is a stuppoge of fac
tories, and throwing labor out of em
ployment necessarily means exceed
ingly low prices for farm products.
Factories must stop w hen there is a
violent contraction of the currency,
and the farming operations being the
great interest of the west, any sud
den withdrawal of money from banks
destroys confidence. It takes years
to build up a confidence that can be
destroyed in months.
2 We think that farmers are mak
ing a mistake in holding their farm
products gn the hopes of higher
prices. We believe that on their
merits everything produced on the
farm this year should bring a good
price, provided consumption of farm
products go on. If this stops from
any reason, prices must necessarily
fall to the limit of their consumption
and no power can advance them only
for a brief period. Speculation may
depress them for a brief period be
low it, but after all the permanent
range of prices is determined by the
consumption of products. Anything,
therefore, that .stops consumption
depresses prices ami inflicts no end
of suffering. We think it spceiallv
unwisc to hold crops for speculation
at the close of the season when a
bountiful harvest of almost every
thing, with the exception of wheat.
is in prospect. Of course accident
may happen any crop as yet. The
exact measure of the crops of the
season have not been determined as
yet, and some of them will not.be for
JO days, but the present conditions
indicate that there will be no scarcity
of anything grown on the farm. We
should, therefore, expect, under or
dinary circumstances, good prices,
but not excessive, for the reason that
there is no very great surplus of anv
one crop. If, however, for anv rea
son consumption decreases, the price
necessarily decreases; and we, there
fore, think it a jrood time to be
closed out of last year's crops and
send them on the markets of the
When lett IliuigM Over Him.
It is especially hazardous to hold
crops when the farmer is in debt.
Liquidation is now the order of the
dav, and the more complete it is, the
quicker will be the recovery. There
fore, if we have anv advice to jrive
our readers it is that when thevhavc
invthing that is ready for the mar
ket, sell it. I'rices may ro higher
after a while, but unless there be a
speedy restoration of confidence,
thev will undoubtedly go lower. It
is a good rule to sell any crop on the
iarm wiien it is ready. 1 he man
who adopts the habit f selling hogs,
cattle or whatever else he mav have
when they are fit to go, no matter
what the market may lie, will usual
ly come out the best in the long run.
Many men have made money by be
ing indebted to banks which required
immediate payment, and, in a word,
forced them" to sell their stock.
Sometimes they have lost, and as a
rule, will lose when the stuff is not
lit to go, the man who is compelled
to sell is sometimes quite foitunate.
The man who imagines that every
thing is going to the bow-wows be
cause for a time there is a stringen
cy in the money market, is making a
great mistake. Consumption to
some extent must go on. People
must eat and must be clothed.
These things cannot stop altogether.
Production also must go on. The
sun does not cease to shine because
some men are panic stricken. The
pigs, lambs, calves and colts keep
right on growing, corn stores up in
its fatness just as rapidly when
bankers are calling in loans as when
they are out on the streets on a hunt
for good borrowers. Prices in the
west are not abnormally high.
There has been no rash speculation
among farmers to speak of. Neither
has there been over trading among
the merchants. There is plenty of
money in the country to do all the
business of the country, and there is
nothing the matter except men, like
children, are seeing spooks or ghosts
in the graveyard. Under these con
ditions no calamity can fall on the
west except such as western people
bring on themselves by failing to
keep a level head.
