This makes necessary a study of the usefulness and limitations of farmers' and mu nicipal markets, wholesale and retai, as a means of distributing farm pro ducts. Consideration also must be given to huckstering by the farmer , himself and the regular huckster. Eggs By Parcel Post. , A number of containers have been found that will safely convey eggs by parcel post, provided the postal em ployes obey the regulations of the post office department as to handling. In the first twenty-live dozen eggs shipped by parcel post, only five eggs were broken," and four of these were in one package which was handled regardless of the. rules. Rural Credit. There is a general impression that farmers - need better credit arrange, ments. Durmg the present session of congress, sub-committees of the com mittee on banking and currency have devoted much time to the investiga tion of rural. credits. In the printed report of its conclusions, the com mission points Out that "Agriculture has been the one great national in dustry which,, has been without or ganization and has been helpless be fore the wonderful growth of our na tion. Therefore, the financing of our farms has become a national prob lem. The savings of the nation must flow out to the farms in order to put agriculture on a proper basis as com pared with other organized industries. This can only be done by wise and pa triotic legislation. Good Roads Raise Values. It is hardly necessary for me to emphasize in this gathering the bene fits of good roads. The direct effect which changing bad roads into good roads has upon land value and the general economic welfare of a com-i munity is generally conceded. Where good roads replace bad ones, the values of farm lands bordering on the roads increase to such an 'extent that the cost of road improvement is equalized, if not exceeded. The gen eral land values, as well as farm values, show marked advances, fol lowing the improvement, of roads. The Haul to Market. . As the roads in-no way affect soil fertility or quality of the farm, .ad vances are due essentially to the de crease in the cost of hauling produce to market or. shipping point. Farms are now. regarded as plants for ' the business of farming, and any reduc tion in their profits through unneces sarily heavy costs for hauling on bad roads naturally reduces their capi talization into values. Roads and Schools. In any meeting for the betterment of conditions in rural communities, special attention; is naturally given to the subject of schools and highways. And there is a distinct relationship between the two subjects. The rural population is more willing to support better schools today than at any pre vious time.

In many counties where bad roads prevail, most of the schools are of the one room variety. Forest Fire. Both to the state of Connecticut and to the farmers of the state, the best care of our forest resources will always be an important matter. A large percentage of our land area will yield its best returns grcwin?; wood. Like any other crop, the for est crop requires Intelligent care if it is to be a full crop.- A pressing problem Is' that of the protection of forests against tire. The greatest of all possible safeguards against fire is the existence of ' a strong and intelligent public senti ment on the subject. Most of our forest fires are the result of care lessness on the part of individuals. Much can be done through an or ganized system for the discovery and prompt putting out of fires; and the state and federal government are co-operating in the support of such a system. In the forests of Connec ticut no such natural fire risk exists as in the forests of the far west where a large proportion of the fires are started by lightning on the high mountains, where a long dry season makes the forests highly in flammable, and where the sparse pop ulation makes quick action difficult. If every citizen fully realized his re sponsibility for the exercise of care, and acted on that realization, there would be little need for anything else; forest fires would cease. HOLY FAJITIA' WHIST. The Holy Family circle of St. Mary's church will hold a whist and entertainment in St. Mary's school hall on the evening of April 29. The committee in charge consist of Mrs. A. E. Monsees. Mrs. James M. Curtln and Mrs. M. T. Crean.

Boston, April 17. Charles S. Mel len, formerly president of the New York, New Haven and Hartford rail road company, may become the ac tive read of a federated body su preme among the various organiza tions of the United States with which 2,000.000 railroad employes are af filiated! . . It became known yesterday that Mr. Mellen had been approached on the siibject and that he was glvlng.it favorable consideration. The new or ganization to be known as the Fed erated Council of Railroad Brother hoods,"' will -be formed at "a meeting of delegates in 'this clty-'On April 26, a.nd-'the former - director of - the New Haven railroad system will be nom inated for the presidency. Promoted by Agents. The idea of the council has been promoted by the Order of Railroad Station Agents, which met here in January, and appointed a committee to invite the , many Independent so cieties of railroad men to send dele gations to the forthcoming meeting. It Is stated that favorable responses were received and 100 delegates have been elected. At present there is no central body in this country and the organization will be along the line of the English and German federations. Harry Phil lips, deputy lord mayor of West Ham England, and associate secretary of the Federated Transportation Work ers of England, will be present to aid In, the organization. ...The councl will represent all branches of the ser vice including conductors, engineers. brakemen, station agents, freight handlers, telegraph operators, signal men. and track walkers. .Result of Speech. , The plan to place Mr. Mellen at the head of the council was a direct outcome of . a statement made by him in an -address at a dinner tendered him by employes of the Bostoif and Maine railroad here on November 30 after he had resigned the presidency of the New Haven. He had talked in tlmately to the men of the latent pow er in labor organizations and said that labor had not received the re wardIt otherwise might because of jealousy among the different bodies and a lack of .loyalty to the common cause. "Exercise your- power with pru dence," he said. "Be fair, be pru dent, but be steadfast one to the other. You have the power and others must pay the price." With some feeling, he concluded: r ; ' "I would like to lead you. I would like to advise you. I want - to help you. Possibly the time will come when' I can do, so, and when, you call, you will not find me wanting.' . No Definite Information, ! New Haven, April 17. As no defi nite Information has yet come to him. Charles S. Mellen, former president of the, New York, New Haven and Hart ford Railroad company,' said today he cculd make no statement In connec tlon with the report from Boston that he may be asked to become the active head of a federated body which would be supreme among the various organi zations of railroad employes in the country. "I suppose," said Mr. Mellen, "that a I, have many warm rlends. among the-Vail road riten my-Jhame may have been .mentt6ne but Iiave received nolie'flniteirVhi'tibnA 'which to make a statement, and have learned more about the matter from reading the morning papers, than I ever knew before. I feel very warmly towards the railroad men, and If they have such confidence in me and loyalty as to wish me to take the position, I should consider it the highest of com. pllments and would be Inclined to make every effort to gratify them."
