"What Should Be the Relation
Between the Farmer and the
Following is the paper read by .las.
E. Reavis at the Earmers' Institute in
Central Hall, Vale, Jan. 21th:-
Mr. Chairman, ladies and gentlemen:
If 1 had chosen my own subject J
could not have chosen one that is near
er my heart and business than this,
"wnat snould be the relation between
the farmer and the business man." In
the lirst place I will tell you that I have
worked both ends or the game. Up to
tne lime i was seventeen years old
followed the plow and did all kinds of
farm work. In those good old days we
used to get up aud milk the cows and
be in the field to work by f o'clock.
. , (
Well do I remember in the busy season
how good that lunch used to taste at
Now to get a little nearer my subject,
what should be the relation between
the farmer and the business man, not
but what I think the farmer of today
is not a business roan, he is, and to be
successful he must be a good business
man. Farming does not consist of
hard work alone; he must plan, he must
use his brains as well as his hands.
God does not give us our minds to let
them lie dormant, He gave them to us
to make the most of them that we
might improve our conditions and like
wise our fellowmen. And I find that
one of the main things between the
farmer and the business man should be
confidence; that is to say, if you come
to sell us an article of produce and tell
us It is A No. 1 we know it will be just
as you say it is and we can in turn
recommend it to our customers as such
and tell them that we know it is so and
so, because we got the same from such
and such a person and they always
bring good goods, and 1 am glad to be
able to stand before you today and tell
you that we have a great many of just
that kind of people trading with us.
And then on the other hand you
should have the same confidence in the
man you trade with, so that when you
buy an article of him and he tells you
a piece of goods is one yard wide you
will not have to get a yard stick and
measure it yourself before you are sat
isfied. Well do I remember when I was a
boy of one special occasion when 1
wanted a new suit of clothes and my
father could not go with me to get
them. He said to me, "you go to Mr.
Forbes he will fit you out just as well
as If I was there." Now that is the
kind of confidence I mean, where you
feel that your children will get just as
square a deal as if you were there your
self. Then again, I think we 6hould all
work together for the advancement of
and Improvement of the section where
we live. I do not mean by that, just
the city of Yale nor do I mean just the
farming country around Vale. I mean
both. We should be loyal to you and
you should be loyal to us. If you
prosper and improve your farms we
will prosper and improve our business.
There is nothing that makes yotir prop
erty more sought after than to be situ
ated near a prosperous and live town;
in fact we are one large family, each
dependant on the other to a certain ex
tent for our well being and prosperity.
I remember when 1 was in Cleveland,
no matter where you went everyone
would tell you what a good place Cleve
land was. If you went to get shaved
they would tell you that Cleveland was
the best business city in the United
States. You heard the same thing
wherever you went. You let a trayel
man from Cleveland step into one of
our stores today, he will ask you where
you buy nuch and such lines and will
tell you that So and So of Cleveland
are a splendid firm and handle the best
line of those goods In the country.
They are boosters and that is just the
relation that should exist between the
farmer and the bulsness man here to
day. We should tell what a good lot of
Postmaster Drake, of the Yale office recently re
ceived from the Department at Washington an or
der providing that on and after February 15th, '10,
Rural Carriers will not be obliged to remove loose
coins from the mail boxes on their respective routes.
Rural patrons have been requested at all times to
provide themselves with stamps or stamped envel
opes and not to throw loose coins into boxes, par
ticularly in winter time, when the carrier must chase
them arouud the box with bare hands in order to
remove them. But notwithstanding all of these re
quests, the practice has grown until the Department
has been obliged to make a definite order as above
set forth. The postmaster states that most of the
Yale Post Office patrons have nicely obeyed the re
quests in these matters, but that there are a few
who still make the Carriers' lives a burden with the
practice, but it is all over now.

Government reclamation of Michigan's lands should be demanded by

Uniform accounting for municipalities.
The waste of cities should be utilized as a fertilizing agent in the
farmers we have in this vicinity and
we can do so truthfully, and you stick
up for your business men, for what
benefits you benefits us, and if we are
good live business men and furnish you
a good market for your produce and In
turn sell you your merchandise It will
work to the mutual benefit of us both.
e have taken up the business side
to a certain extent now just for a few
moments let us look at the social side
of this question. 1 think that in this
we might Improve and I do not think
there is any place or way which we can
f;et in closer touch with each other than
n a social way. I know from personal
experience that it has changed my
opinion of many people by meeting
them socially, I found where you got
better acquainted with them that they
were the best of people. It has been
my privilege to be entertained by sev
eral of my farmer friends and I want
to tell you frankly if you want a good
meal and be royally entertained the
farm is the place to go.
Hut this should not be all onesided.
Let the business man and his family
entertain as well, and in that way as
well as a business way get better ac
quainted. It will be a benefit to us all,
socially, morally and mentally.
