President "of Farmers' Union Urges
Farmers to App!y Yard-Stick of
Sincerity This. Year.
To the Officers and Members of thd
Farmers' Union:
The- impending presidential cam
paigns and elections finds an unusual
amount of unrest and uncertainty and
dissatisfaction prevalent in the coun
try. There will be the customary ap
peals to prejudice and one's liking for
that man or dislike for another.
It is an excellent opportunity for
the members of the Farmers' Union
to view all men and measures, all par
ties and platforms, not by what they
say but by sheer test of sincerity and
of past performances.
Be careful of the man or the party
that has, before, Dromised .you every
thing to get into oflice, and after he
achieved election, occupied himself
rmainly with keeping his personal po
ltical fences in order. Be careful or
the man who does you little petty
personal courtesies, such as distribut
ing a few garden seeds or government
bulletins, but who votes against the
mneasures in which you are vitally in
Be car-eful of the man or the party
that makes you promises you know
are impossible of performance, that
are political gold bricks, pure and sim
ple, coined to get votes, straw issues
to be forgotten as soon as the party
r the man rides into office.
Vote less by the ear and the eye
and more by the brain! Do your own
thinking. Refuse to have your con
victions ready-made for you. Size up
political situations exactly as you
would a business deal; with the same
judgmjent, and with the same refusal
to be iniuenced by --hot air" or the
lever stor-ies of a man who would
like to get thle best of you in a horse

Co-operation in, the marketing of
'ruit is of great value to the producers.
Fruit growers are beginning to realize
hat the one-man association is not ef
'ective enough. Co-operation not onlY
nereases the ' average price to the
,rower, but also reduces the price to
he c-onsumer. because the product can
be put on the market cheaper.
The benefits to be derived from a
ruit growers' association are,: Being
ible to ship in profitable quantities;
listribation of the crop, establishing
. brand, and bringing about better
business methods among fruit grow
ers. Since the perfection of the CalI
ornia Fruit Growers' Exchange the
output has increased from a few hun
lred to 50.000 cars.
"The cbject of a fruit growers'
association," says Albert Dickens.
profcssor of horticulture at the Kan
sas Agricultural College. "is to get
the product from the producer to the
buyer economically. Good farmers
are not always good business men.
For example. take a number of men
with Ofty crates of strawberries.
Probably there will be a glut on the
home market, .vhh-e in some other
place there is a great demand. The
indiv:dual grower has a very small
chance of loaating this market. and as
a result he probably sells his straw
berries at a loss.
"The fruit growers' exchange meets
and elects its own oflicers. It has a
manager whose business it is to locate
the markets. He receives telegraphic
reports daily from all over the coun
try concerning the prices and demand
for certain products. The grower
hauls his truck to the central packing
house, where it is sorted and packed.
and credit is given him for his load.
If the market is over supplied in Den
ver and there is a demand in Kansas
City, the manager sends the product
to Kansas City instead of to the
glutted market at Denver, where It
probahy would have to be sold for a
low price.
"The man-ager does not send all his
cars to the same place. as there would
be dange-r of 'bursting' the market.
He distributes them over the mtrket
"One of the successful organizations
of this kind in Kansa's is tile Wathena
association in Doniphan county. In
one year it shipped 1,000 cars of ap
ncs, 700 cars of strawberries. 35 cars
of grapes, and 300 cars of blackberries
and r-spberrics.
"Barrels and crates can be obtained
much cheaper by buying them 'knock
d-down' and employing a cooper to
et them up. An association could
keep a cooper busy nearly all the year.
These barrels can be set up and stored
until the season opens. If you pack
the fruit yourself and send it to the
hiping place, your nrimber is placed
n the barrel, and if the truck proves
to be in poor condition your number
is referred to and you must be re
sponsible. This helps to make a high
standard and to establish a brand for
Elaa!ksmith Co-operative Company

One of the oddest mnovements in

Trhe action was caused by three lo

the Orange Judd Fanler. The re
sult is. many times, the butter maker!
are reluctant to reject cream which 1t
so low grade that it ought not to bi
ac-cepted. They do not like to heai
the patron say: "If you are not sat
isfied with that cream why you jus
leave it alone. I'll take it over to th(
other creamery." Thus there are hun
dreds of patrons in cc-operative sec
tions that are imposng on creameriei
because of the rivalry between but
ter makers.
With farmers' creameries there h
absolutely no excuse for this. They
get all there is in It. There should
be co-operation ana not rivalry. iThe
butter makers in the North Iowa Diry
Improvement association appreciate
this and have organized for the pur
pose of bringing about a change. They
have e!ected a president, vice-presi
dent, secretary and treasurer and pro
pose from now on to work in har
mony-to pull together. They intend
to meet every month to discuss
creamery problems, score butter and
compare workmanship. By forming
this association these butter makers
have made an original and one of the
very best moves that can be conceived
of. I notice the following rules in
their constitution and by-laws:
The object of this organization is:
First, to co-operate with the intentior
of controlling the grade of cream ac
cepted at these creameries. All
cream which in the butter maker's
judgment will not make butter scor
ing 93 or better is to be rejected.
Cream rejected by one butter maker
cannot be accepted by another. If
any butter maker is found violating
these rules the organization will use
its influence to have him removed.
Second, to secure uniformity in
wcrkmanship and to manufacture a
grade of butter which will score 93 or
Third, to so co-operate with the of
ficers of the North Iowa Dairy Im
provement assoclation that a general
rarag-r could guarantee a certain
grade and contract- for the entire out
put of all these creameries.
For an organization of this kind
there are many opportunities to do
good. Even at present some of these
creameries are making butter which
scores 93, yet they do not get all that
they might for the butter because it
is sold in comparatively small lots,
and it is not guaranteed to score this
high throughout the year. If the but
ter made by the creameries in this or
ganization scored 93 or better and was
uniform in color, salting, water con
tent and packing it could be sold for
an average advance of at least one
cent per pound more. Butter firms
will pay more for a guaranteed ar
ticle. When they can contract it in
large quantities, say two or four car
loads a week by the year they will
give more. They can afford to. They
do not need to spend time and money
in soliciting shipments.
I will watch th'e work of this most
practical organization with interest.
In my judgment it is one of the most
practical steps that a group of butte
makers could take. They propose to
work in unison. It will pave the way
for the creamery managers to get to
ether and buy and sellgon a large
scale ini a co-operative manner,

Getting Into Hard Soit.
In raising a gcod crop, It. must be
conceded that traction farmig Is far -
ahead of farming done with anlfil
power. It is a well-knownl fact that
all agricultural authorities agree that
deep plowing and the packing of the -
sub soil produce a better crop than is .
possible wtih the ordinary method of
shallow plowving. It is almost- an Im -
possibility to plow deep with horses,
and the common horse plow, because
the entire outfit is too light to get .
down into the hard soil. On the other ....
hand an engine is heavy and strn
enoughl to be forced deep enough to
secure good results. At the samc time
it is far chearer to plow with an en
gine than it is to plow with horses.
