M A CO-OPERATIVE STORE CAN
' BE MADE SUCCESSFUL
( A co-operative store has beon made
a success In Boston There are many
'ts similar stores In England, but in the
I United States they are few The
! 'net that 100') persons can become
associated in buying goods and in
.'; ! that way sare money is something
I worthy of our attention. Here In
Ogden, the union men opened a co
operative store, hoping thereby to
keep down the high cost of living
The concern had a very' brief exlst-
Icnce and finally failed to meet all
obligations and had to close Its door?
With the many failures in mind,
wo were thoroughly Interested In the
headlines of nn eastern publication
which proclaimed 'he success of at
least one Institution In which the pa
trons were welcomed to share In the
profils. The man who originated the

hoston co-operative store was orlgi
nally confined to bank clerks. Each
.-hareholder w as to pay In 110 for
membership. The beginning was slow
until the rule waa changed and mem
bershlp fee? were made payable at
Jl a month for in months instead of
fin In a lump
The clement? that entered Into the
Miccess of the undertaking are thus
j related
The committee decided to select a
Bite having sufficient passing traffic
t insure the store's success whether
member? traded there or not. Future
' .lerience proved the wisdom of this
step:
Strange as It may seem, the word

"Co-operative" in a store sirii tends
to keep away transient trade. Dis
interested street paeserB are apt to
aasnme that only shareholders may
trade at the store. Or else they ar

Knowledge of this attitude, com
bined with It? Ions name, moved the
I Co-operative Society of Bank Men
to call ita store "Devonshire Market."
after the street on which it is sit
uated. The casual visitor may make
a purchase at the Devonshire Mar
kct without knowing that ho is pat
ronizing a co-operative store. W hen
his wife unwraps the bundle she will
find an attractive printed circular
briefly outlining the purposes of the
society and Inviting the family to
subscribe for a share of stock. This
unobstrusive method brings results.
A co-operative c.roer store should
do more than merely share profits
It should set a standard for pure
foods And these should be handled
in a sanitary manner
The Co-operative Society of Bank
.Men has departed from the usual co
operative way of sharing promts-. The
plan is this: Goods are sold to ev
erybody at market prices. Sharehold
ers receive a monthly rebate of f
per cent on their purchases. Further
profits of the business arc divided In
the usual manner The rebate to
shareholders keeps them loval It en
courages nonmembers to join. This
plan may not be orthodox, but it is
popular By reducing the cost of liv
ing the co-operative society leaves
It members more of a surplus to put i
in the bank
i lie sjsiem onngs in tne sirac
glers It frequently happens that i
man who needs the benefits of co
operation will not become a share
holder because he Is suspicious of
the motives actuating those who ask
him to Join Poverty or hard luck
may have put a misanthropic twist in
his perspective.
"No sir. won't get no $10 outaii
me," he Is very apt to say. "I'm
hep to them kinda crimes. I am
W ouldn't mind the job o' goin' round
plckin' up $10 bills, myself "
Another class of men fail to be
come shareholders in co-operative
stores because they never get to the
point of breaking away from the con
venience of charge accounts, unlim
ited free delivery, and "service." The
v omen folk do not like the bother ot
marketing, and the men folk do not
like to carry bundlleu Which is all
very well for incomes in proportion
Two big holes In the profit bag of
a store run for gain are free deliver;,
o! small parcels and the credit sys
tem. Here Is where co-operative
stores can educate shareholders to
some purpose.
The loss from bad bills plus the
cot of free delivery will run from A
per cent of sales In a large store to
8 or lu per cent In a small store
Co-operators should have it Im
pressed upon them that these con
veniences do not go with bottom
prices.
Things that must be delivered, such
as flour, co-operators should be en
couraged to purchase in quantities.
And the best way to encourage them
is to make it worth while The Dev
onshire Market recently distributed
a carload of flour direct from tho
warehouse The store made 30 cent
a barrel, and shareholders saved $1
a barrel, less the cost of delivery,
26 cents.
Unless a co-operative store Is win
ning Its patrons to become share
holders, and then to buy in quanti ;
ties and pav cash, it has very little
excuse for exlstiug. A co-operative
lion that accepts prevailing trade
customs and makes no effort to bet- j
ter them falls In its mission.
The aim of co-operative storekeep- ;
ing is, or should be, to establish a '
more direct connection between pro- !
d'icer and consumer It is possible, !
I even now, for the co-operath c asso- j
j ciatlons of this country to Inaugurate
a belter system of distribution, a sjs
I tem whereby the food producers of
the rural districts through their co
operative associations shall sell dl
rect to the food consumers of the
i cities through their co-operative as-
! eoelations.
The one thing needful seems to be
some sort of a clearing hoube to ad
just supply and demand At first this
might be a bureau of distribution,
where consumers would pool their
orders, and to which producers would
look for advice regarding favorable
markets
Private enterprise, being largely
concerned with money-making, has
complicated the distribution of food
I stutfs. It has built up a system that
. doubles and trebles the price of food
i product in getting them from pro
ducer to consumer.

RECOGNITION OF THE
STENOGRAPHER
Collier's pays tribute to the sten
cgrapher in theae words:
"Who else knows us half ao well'.'
She hps heard all that we have said
j and then made note of it. She has
read our Incoming letters She knowa
who pleadi with us for help and
: what ww do 'about It. Do we write
frankly or evasively, she follow the
straight-hewed line or the curve of
our deviousnew. Are we courteous
only to the powerful, or ii our treat
ment even to all who come seeking?
The woman at our elbow hammering
out our paragraphs. Is a clear-eyed
witness Over the telephone voices
drift in from the world, and the tone
of each is caught and judged before
I our presence g acknowledged. She
knows whether our friends are
worth v I the home happy" She
knows it. She notes all our tricks
of person. Our good temper, our
clean speech, fly further than wc
guess. She Is familiar with the state
phrases we scatter over the thousand
routine lotters, and is gladdened
; when we light up the languid page
with an unspoiled turn She is aware
when we have tumbled out from a
I laden dek to a World's series ball
game She, too. would enjoy Mr.
Baker s versatility, but she wndes
through our debris till twilight. She
could keep our tardy correspondence
up to the minute, hut she has to time
her efficiency to our limitations.
Never outpacing us, she is as loyal
la -the background as our shadow."
The average stenographer certain
ly has an excellent opportunity of de
termining the real character of her
i mployer More than one man known
to the outside world as noble and
considerate, would have a blasted
reputation, if the stenographer were
to tell all she knows.
Occasionally even the stenographer
Is deceived, but generally that de
ception has Its denouement when the
honeymoon davs have passed
The stenographer of late years has
become a mighty factor In the at
fairs of men. and as a patient, con
fidential part of any business con
cern is entitled to more than words
of praise.

FLOWERS ON THE CASKETS
OF THE DEAD
Tributes of respect for the dead
tre today paid principally in flow
ers beautiful, fragrant flowers. And
the caskets that are being made the
last couch before the final ceremcny
is said are of richest design and cost
200 or more.
This means that the expenses that
are heaped upon the ordinary fam
ilies when death enters are almost
beyond their ability to pay.
But no family, not in dire digress
is so humble as not to seek lo give
to the departed that which is the cus
tom and, as a result, death brings
a double calamity.
Some one has said that this ex
cessive offering of floral tributes
should be done away with, and yet
any practice of that kind is almost
Impossible to correct. Here in Utah,
the authorities of the dominant
church might bring about a change
for the better by counseling the peo
ple to restrict their floral tributes to
some simple offering such as a small
bouquet,

FOREST MEN ARE NOW
AUG AT LOCAL
HEADQUARTERS
This week marks the beginning of
detail work for forest supervisors In
. the Ogden district at headquarter
and before the week i over there
will be a large number of forest men
here In response to the call from
headquarters.
The object of the detail work Is to
keep tbe supervisor- in touch Wlto
j toro8t affalrhs tirst handed All
' things pertaining to foreot operations
I In detail are considered at the Og-1
i den headquarters and, by spending a
' short time here In the various depart
mentis, the men who do the work lu
the field become familiar with phases
of the work that they can get in no
other way
i Last year, and years previous to
that, supervisors were required to
; take detail work a', headquarters a
month or six weeks, but District For
, ester E. A Shermnn considers that
; Is no longer necessary. He maintains
that the boys in the regular service
: in his district have all taken up a
I careful study of the forestry service
J business to the extent that they are
well informed and that there Is now
i no reason why they thould be given
I c'etall work !onger than a week or
I ten days. Nearly all the men will
remain only a woek.
Those who arrived late this after
noon were: Supervisors C, O. Smith
of the Cache forest; W W. Blakselee
of the Sanls Rosa forest, Nevada,
and Ernest Winkler of the Fillmore
fore' with headquarters at Richfield
Others are expected within the
next few days and for the greater
; pnrt of tbe winter there will be nom"
I of the supervisors at headquarters.
I They will be taken Into all depart-
i merits of the service for instruction
j and. as Mr. Sherman puts it, "a few
: finishing touches."

iNe.v Chinese Orange
The Lue Glm Gong Is a new orange
originated by a Chinese fruitgrower of
L)e Land. Fla. According to S witter
In Country Life in America this new
variety is going to revolutionize or
ange growing throughout that part of
the country. It is declared that the
fruit has been known to hang on the
tre for one. two, or even three years,
and that the tree bears well even
when it Is still carrying the crop of
the previous year This is not true of
most other varieties It Is also said
that the fruit can be shipped as early
as June, although It Is still too acid
then. It iB good In July, but better In
August und September "The fruit is
full of Juice." Bays the quoted writer,
'and hangs on the trees through the
rainy summer weather It can there
fore be placed on the market when
oranges are scare and the highest
prices can be secured "
