COHEJfS F.H. JOHNSTON TALKS ON VALUE OF FARMS Conoressmaa Lonersan Una&Ie to Attend Rural Association Heeling. HIS ADDRESS READ BY FRcHT p.. Many Delegates Attend Gathering of J Hartford County Rural Improvement 3v Association Held in 'Hartford To day Good Addresses Are Delivered. Before a large gathering, made up ofmen from all over Hartford county, with; those living in the rural districts more In 'evidence, several of the state and-nation's most prominent men ad dressed the Hartford County Rural Improvement association at : Unity hall in Hartford today. Among those who made timely talks on subjects of interest to the country, and city man as well, were F. H. Johnston of this city, president of the State Business Men's association, Congressman A. F. Lever, Colonel Charles M. Jarvis of Berlin, Ij. A. Clinton. J. W.' Alsop, L. G. 'Dodge, Governor Baldwin, A. J. Schererle, Mayor Dawler of Hartford and Professor C. D. Jarvis of the state ' agricultural station. Congress- man Lonergan was expected, but im- pprtant - legislative business at Wash ington kept him' from attending. How ever, his address was read by Presi dent Stadtmueller, of the associa tion. President F. H. Johnston. The meeting opened at 11 o'clock this morning and the final speaker qf the forenoon session was Presi dent F. H.' Johnston. He delivered a strong address from the view point of the business men, speaking in part as follows: "Farmers' sons who have an ambi tion to conduct farms on progressive lines ought to have' the earnest sup port of their parents, not only be cause of modern methods but be cause they will be more likely to hold the' Interest of studious and energetic boys. ; ' ; ' A'In ( common with thousands of others, I: am, strongly impressed with the belief that the subject of better farming in America is the most, im portant , now occupying the attention of .the commercial . world. By better farming is meant a system that will produce larger results in the way of profits and an easier living for those who till the soil, as well as a greater average production to the "acre. , .''I appreciate the courtesy, of your invitation to be present at this meet ing and , thank you for this oppor tunity: of getting acquainted with you. I am very glad to accept the oppor tunity to bring before vu in a few words the work of the State associa tion and the necessity of the co operation of the men interested, in agriculture in order that our associa tion may accomplish definite good in this work. We advocate the, closer study of our state-wide problems and the bringing about of a higher! standard of business ideas. I want you to think of the State Business Men's association as a body of men working for the upbuilding of this commonwealth, earnestly studying the many local and" the many broader perplexities brought about, by the radical changes in not only ways of doing business but in our population and in its increasing desire to con gregate in the cities, ' with the con sequent lessening- production in the necessities of life. As a body of men ''whose interests are causing them to co-operate because of these rapidly changing conditions and whose mem bership has changed from that of the retail merchant of fourteen years ago when the State association was first formed, to its present membership of nearly fourteen thousand men em bracing merchant, manufacturer, farmer, professional men and last, but not least, , many laboring men. "The several Business Men's associa tions in Norwich, New London and Willimantic have already taken up the county improvement movement in New London county and. have aroused much enthusiasm and aref doing good, work. We have " eleven Business Men's associations' in Hartford County Hartford, New Britain, Manchester,, Glastonbury, Plainville, Squthlngton, Bloomfleld, Winsocket, Enfield," .Wlnd aor West Hartford, all fine hustling associations, and we stand ready to assist you in every way possible as every farmer . is of necessity to a business man '. and needs our help as we in the business world need his. I hope you will seriously consider the problems of our great transporta tion system at the present time and realize that every, kind of business is largely dependent upon the trans portation facilities furnished to it and that our development is in direct proportion to the efficiency of. our transportation service. Efficiency and time is the thing the cost - of the service is really a much smaller con sideration, If. the railroads give us efficient service they must receive reasonable remuneration and it is vastly more important that the farmer and the business man get prompt and good service than it is to have cheap rates and inefficient service.

"This . last brings up the problem that. is. all the time tugging at the heart Of the farmer of this country. There are, many neighbors in which not one in ten of the male members5 can be called : a young man. Even with the drift toward the country, of hich . we hear so , much today, it is the drift nf men-well along in years The boys tfid ; young men are not re sponding as they might to this call of back to nature." . ; 4-- Ixmergan's Address Heard. Congressman Lonergan's address was , one which dealt with the pro ducer and the consumer. It told of the benefits to be derived from a co-operation between the city and the country. It enlarged upon the need of good roads, mentioned various improved methods of transportation and advocated a farmers' rural-credit. Herewith is- given an abstract from the Connecticut congressman's ad dress as read: Distributing Farm Products. There are so many phases of ag riculture which merit serious con sideration that it is difficult to de cide which is of first importance. At the present time our national gov ernment, through . its . department of agriculture, is making a special study of the distribution of farm products, or of marketing. At the present time, while our far mers in Hartford county are busy solv ing the question of marketing, to gether with other intricate agricul tural problems, there is a governmen tal office, in Washington, the office of markets, which is devoting its ener gies to acquiring and diffusing among the people of the United , States use ful information on subjects connect ed with the marketing and distribu tion of farm products. When and Where; At the present, time, many of our consumers do not know from where-, the products come, and likewise, many producers do not know where their, product goes. But there are thost' who have this information and are utilizing it to their distinct advantage,: which is good business. Transportation Difficulties. Transportation is one of the great elements in the cost of getting thing' from the producer to the consumer. Investigation of this subject so far art it relates to farm products is advis able. The manufacturers are well equipped in that respect. Practically every manufacturing city of any size has its chamber of commerce or as-! sociation of commerce or board of trade, with its traffic bureau, to which the manufacturer goes regular-' ly when he needs any advice on trans portation. The farmer is wholly without this service. The. farmer can not learn definitely how to do any of the things that relate to transporta tion. Systematic Work. Those who have given much study to the subject of marketing find that investigation can be pursued to best advantage by reorganizing five impor tant sub-divisions: First. Marketing surveys, meth ods and costs, including especially available market supplies in given production areas, demand at consum ing centers, cold and other storages, marketing systems and prices, and costs of wholesale and retail distribu tion of farm products.- Second. Transportation and stor age problems, having" in mind tho elimination of waste and the study of Confectionery Our selections always meet the approval f of those who appreciate quality, purity j and freshness.
