" RELENA PRODVEE MARKET.
HELUA, August 25, 1879. The change has been so slight the past week that it is hardly worth while making quotations. The price of oats has advanc ed somewhat, while flour is slow sale and a little on the decline. Dealers are afraid to buy large quantities on account of new crops being so close at hand, for flour and oats will eventually go down very low when the new crop begins to come in.

Ing alone, his only hope of success is through co-operatio.-that is, working to. gather--concurrent effort and action. Or gaization Is the universal medium through which co-operation is accomplished. It is the machine and instrument by which all human success ever bas been or ever will be attained. Civilization is but the result of successi e organizations, and 'history is sim ply the records of organized efforts at pro gress. Agriculture, the worthy calling of men, pas been the last to try co-operation a union of purposes, a union of minds and means, a massing of forces and in obedience to the general laws of united effort and con ourrent action. The first and only true co operative effort the farmers ev'er made was ln the organization of the Grange. The or der of Patrons of Husbandry is an organi zatlon of farmers, for farmers, by farmers the. crowning act of American independ ence, Columbian glory and Western enter prise. Its motto: "In essentials unity; in iion-essentials liberty; in all things chari ty." Its-object: "To labor for the good of our Order, our country and mankied." "To develop a better and higher mankind among ourselves. *'J.'o enhance the comforts and attractions of our homes and strengthen our attachments to our pursuits." "To fur ther mutual understandlng and co-opera. tidn." "To reduce expenses." "To buy less and produce more." "To diversity our crops." "To cond'.nse tt weight of our exports." "To systeftlze our work." "To bring producers and consumers together." "To Ineulcate a proper appaweation of the abilities and sphere of women." "To main tain inviolate our laws." "To discounten ance the credit system. and every other sy..tem tending to prodigality and bank. ruptoy." rTo meet together, work togeth. er, buy together, sell together, and in gen. eral to act together for our mutual protec tion and advancement." "To avoid litiga tion as much as possible by arbitration in the grange." "To strive to secure entire harmony, good will, vital brotherhood among ourselves, and make our order per petual." "Faithful adherence to these principles will insure our mental, moral, so cial and material advancement.' '-Grange Visitor. THE GRANGES. The granges throughout the state seem to be in a very quiescent state at present; most of them are only holding monthly meetings, and some not so often as that. They are now busy securing the crops they have been so patiently waiting for the last six months, and if they omit a meeting oc casionally we think they are quite excusa ble. After the harvesting is over we hope to hear of a revival of the good work all along the line. If the farmers ever needed an organization of their own in which they can combine for mutual protection in the handling of their crops, it is at the present time. What has been done by the wheat growers of California through the Grangers' Business association in breaking up the wheat ring, the sack ring and the freight ring, is now of incalculable benefit to them. The benefits of a close or united organiza tion need not be confined to wheat growers; any other branch of farming can accom plish results as great.-California Patron. Axuotion.
