Farmors are benefitted by having
oanning factories operating in
their Bection of country, as. they
find it more profitable to grow
tomatoes, string beans or peas
for the canner than by growing
any other crop. The yield of to
matoes varies greatly in different
soils, it being between 8 and 16
tons to the acre, fair average
yield being 12 tons, or about 400
bushels In a looality th"t poss

Wherever faotorits have been,
successfully conducted, the far

experience in growing and sup
plying tho raw materials for suh
fudtorios. -Many- -. towns' have
been built up solely through the
establishing of canning factories;
and again in a business of this
kind the money is mostly kept at
home. The U. S. government
reports say that 400,000 aores
was doVoted to the growing of
tomatoes alotiMor the oanning
factories of our country, which
indicates the importance of toma
toes in the oanning industry, and
the demand is increasing, as vast
amounts of oanned goods aro ex
ported, to Europe. We would
like to seo some of our bright
men agitate this' question and
establish a cannery in our oity.
The great southwest needs to
mato canneries, and tho demand
for oanned goods of all kinds will
bo uncommonly heavy for. the,

ORGANIZE AND DIVERSIFY.
UnqloSam: I desire to sug
gest an idea, as the News is' an
Open Forum. The farmers do
not want to do any man a wronp,
and our organization is not a war
on tho morohant or the town,,
but for tho purpose securing di
versification in farming, and
larger and better markets and to
better our condition socially,
financially and intellectually.
'We aim to get.in touoh with the
wholesale-dealers in dr produce
and be able to ship direck to the
industrial centers, and by being
organized- wo are able to load
