Peck's Weekly Talks to Farmers By T. F. Peck, Commissioner of Agriculture PROBLEM OF MARKETING FARM PRODUCTS While it is true that we are paying The worst of that experience is be higher taxes now and tarmers are paying more for equipment in the way of farm machinery than in 1914, just before the World War, at the same time we are getting more for cotton, more for hogs, more for lambs, and as much for wheat and hay. In fact, prices for products of the farm will average a little better than in 1914. Still the situation of the farmer is serious. Many of hem are in debt. When the war started in Europe there was an immediate demand tor our agricultural products; prices soared, and continued high until 1920. During that period there was a demand for everything our industries could pro duce at higher prices, to supply thei demand caused by the war. With this unusual mosperity came a period of extravagance and speculation. Many farmers who had their farms paid for and were out of debt, sold them at high prices and bought larger farms, paying what they had received as first payment. They bought expen sive cars, made long trips signt-seeing and delegated the work on the farms to others at highe wages. Their living expenses were heavy, iney oougnt expensive clothing. When the slump came they had saved nothing from the flush times. TM. : j i:..:MA. UnA ineir expensive iuviuc ui uhhj hu m. hind us. The lesson remains with us. fixed in our memories, to safeguard us from a repetition. With prices for farm products equal, and in some cases better than those immediately preceding the war, and with knowl edge that prices can be very material ly increased, without increasing the cost to the consumer, by getting closer to the consumer ourselves with our products, the situation appears brigh- er. The method of this has been clearly .' Clerks, Mary Spencer and Bessie Tab OFFICERS OF ELECTION On Thursday, August 3, 1922, at the various voting precincts of Cumber land County, Tennessee, there will be opened and held under the general election laws of the state, an election for the purpose of electing a Sheriff, Trustee, Register, Circuit Court Cleric and County Court Clerk, and such other district officers as are to be elec ted at said election. The following named persons have been duly appointed to hold said election and by a recent statute it is a misdemeanor for any one who has been appointed to hold such election to fail or refuse to serve, unless they tiave a valid and lawful excuse.

They have solved the problem of merchandizing their products advantageously instead of dumping them on the market at in-1 "in opportune times. Those who have taken up this method of marketing their products are in a position to re cover from their extravangances in cident to the war. The cooperative movement is spreading rapidly through the state, as evidenced by the var ious organizations and as seen from the encouraging reports receievd from sales made through these organiza-' tions. There is nothing to be gained by crying over spilled milk. The past is gone, and we have had our lesson.

This move by the Warehous Com pany should meet with a liberal pa tronage by the farmers and the public generally. Their investment means an outlay of around $5,000, which is am ple assurance that their machinery is of the latest improved design and the product they will offer the public will be of the very highest quality.
