Defender Arises for the Dealers Who
Failed to Order Their Supplies
Early This Fall.
C. F. Turner has taken up the
cudgels iii the defense of the small
country fuel dealer on whose shoul
ders the railroads are endeavoring to
shift the blame for the scarcity of coal.
Railroad officials and others have as
serted that the present scarcity of fuel
in the northwest and particularly in
North Dakota, Montana and northern
Minnesota ^was due to the failure of
the dealers in the smaller towns td
stock up during the summer and fall,
thus laying in a good supply before
traffic became congested. In answer
to this Mr. Turner believes that the
whole trouble can be ultimately traced
back to the failure oif the railroads to
supply sufficient cars for shipping the
farmer's produce, which has resulted
in almost a stagnation In business and
has prevented the fuel dealers from se
curing enough money to buy coal in
large quantities.

Fuel Co., the railroads and others say

^not laying in a supply of fuel during

j,Turner, in discussing the situation.
("But just put yourself in his place.,
The country dealer does not possess
unlimited resources. He carries most
of the farmers from one year's end to
the other for groceries, dry goods, etc.
That is as much as the average dealer
can stand.
"Fuel is a cash commodity and the
winter's supply for a small town and
farming community runs Into big!
money. The railroad makes the dealer
pay the freight before it is unloaded,
and if it is not unloaded at once,
charges for demurrage.
"Oh, yes, it is a good thing for the
banks to have the winter's supply of
fuel put In during the summer months
if the dealers' or farmers' credit and
security is first class, but the price
which the dealer has to pay for fuel
is plenty high enough without his hav
ing to pay the additional 10 or 12 per
cent for interest on money borrowed to
lay in an early supply.
"If the farmer could have marketed
his grain In September, October, or
even the first of November, the coun
try merchant would have had sufficient
money to buy fuel and pay freight on
it, and it would have been shipped in
ample time to furnish him with a good
supply for the winter. But the cars
were not furnished, the farmer could
not market his grain and consequently
could not pay the dealer what he
owed him.
"The farmers of North Dakota di
rectly or indirectly, Intentionally or
unintentionally, are always the people
who have to pay the freight in the
long run, 'Jones' or anyone else to the
contrary notwithstanding."

Muskrats Helped.*
Garrison Times: Old hunters and
trappers say that the killing of the
muskrat is tne real reason why so
many of the fish in the streams and
lakes are found dead In the spring
of the year. The streams freeze over,
solid and there ia no chance for
the fish to get air. Where the musk
rat makes his home there will be
found a hole in the ice, and thus the
muskrat becomes a savior of the fish
by furnishing them air. The destruc
tion of these animals means the
countless destruction of other ani

months for air and life. The study.of
animal life is a very interesting one,
