You nursed us through our infant years,
You loved us as children,.
You shared with us our hopes and fears,
With counsel good and mild,

How sad that heart of thine.
You loved us better than before,
Dear Mother, Mother mine.

Editor Manning Timnes:-Will you
please give me some informnation re
garding the election or appointment of
trustees for Manning graded school? !
If elected when and whor- is election
If appointed, by whom?1
When once electedi or appointed, is it
a life time job? PATEON.
The Times editor replies to the above !
questions as follows:
The trustees of the Manning graded
school are appointed by the county
board of education.
-There is no law providing for an
election of these officers. .
Their term of office is the same as
that of the county board, four years.
The position of school trustee is not1
"a life time job," nor is it a position
that should be a political plaything.

Report of Secretary of Agriculture.
Systems of mai-keting farea products
and-the demand-for them at trade cen-.
ters are the subjects of a special rate to
Congress by the Secretary of Agrieul
ture; recently published. The report
was made to special direction of Con
gress in order that information might
be at hand concerning the establisb- 1
ment.'of a division of markets in the de
.partment of agriculture. The secretary
specifies various items of service- that t
could be performed by such an office,
with. recommendations that they be r
adopted. if it is created... The :report s
covers 391 pages and is crowded, with
information witb regard to the subjects
treated. . t
BY PRODUCERS TO CONSUMERS.:
The report treats of the movement of b
farm products froni=the: farm to con
sumer through a great variety of chan- f
nels. 'The simplest distribution is the
direct-one of delivery byfarmer to con
sumer,- andnext after this is the deliv- t
ery by-individual farmers or associa- t
tions of farmers to individual consumers
or associations of consumers. In these n
direct forms of distribution,.tbe middle- I
man is eliminated, although of course i,
intermediate services are performed
either by producers or by consumers or a
by both parties. b
INTERVENTION OF MIDDLEMEN.
Among the varieties. of middlemen 1%
concerned in the marketing of farm
products are the traveling hucksters o
who go from farm to farm gathering
eggs, butter, poultry, calves, nd other it
commodities, which they sell to ship
pers, jobbers,, or retail dealers.' -The v
country -irehants is often the first re- a
reiver of such products as eggs, farm- k
made butter, poultry, wool, hides, cot- A
ton, and sometimes grain and hay In
regions where grain is the staple prod
uct, the tendency has been to displace
the country merchant by the grain
buyer and the local elevator man.
Farmers commonly sell through com
mission merchants and to some extent
lirectly to wholesale dealers and also b1
o retail dealers. The farmer who em
Aoys a trustworthy commission mer
:hant who will handle his products V
ionestly and honorably will get the
urrent prices for them within the
ange of the commission merchant's
>usiness, but the farmer often-finds him
elf in the hands of a commission mer
:hant who faisely reports that the prod- h4
acts were received in damaged condi
ion or that they were of a grade lower
ban ttcy were in fact, or he reports re
eivine priceslower than those actually
eceived by himfor the products. Worse
han this, it is by no means rare that a
he commission merchant bas sold the
products and failed to return the net
Samples of transactions in wbich only w
ine middleman intervenes between pro
lucer and consumer include the com
nission man at a laige market who re- s
aeives consignments of live stock from
armers and sells to packers; the factor 1a
o whom the planter consigns his rice
ir cotton and from whom purchases are S
ade by millers; the warehousemen
rho manage the sale of a Virginia
The intervention of two men between
roducer and consumer is a common oc
urence. Fruits and vegetables are often
nareted through the aid of two mid
llemen, the city commission dealer and
MORE THAN ONE INTERMEDIARIES.
A series of three middlemen may in
lude first the local buyer of the ship
er; second, the commission dealer or B
he wholesale merchant; and third; the
etail merchant. In the sale of fruit by
,nction, which is common in large cit
es east of the Mississippi river, the
auctioner is an additional middleman. te
Xe may seli for a commission dealer, to n'
hom the consignment may have been B
nade by a country buyer; and the pur
haser at such an auction may be a job- I
per, who In tnrn sells to a retail mer-a
hant. Five middlemean are thus con- mI
erned in such a transaction. al
Onions raised in Kentucky are some.-b
ies bought by a local mercbant and .4
hipped to Louisville; here they may be 1 h
mt into sucks and consigned to a New t'
rork wholesaler or a commission man t
rho in turn sells to a New York- retail- g
ir. Eggs and poultry frequently pass
brogh the hands of at least four mid- de
The marketing of clover seed is an.
tiample of a transfer from one farmer
o-anoter through a number of mid- -
Llemen. The first middleman may be an
:ndiana jobber, who consigns to a comn
nission dealer in Toledo, Ohio; here
he seed may be purchased by a mer- tc
hant and shipped to a wholesale dealer B
n a distant city. The last middleman
n this course of distribution is a coun- tC
r storekeeper or a city dealer in agri- P
ultural supplies. li
,ARKET PLACES AND WAREHOUSES. t
Public market places are established 0
n a number of cities and towns, and in it
hese places consiumers may buy such d<
'ticles as fruit, vegetables, dairy prod- fc
ets, poultry, and eggs direct from farm- te
irs as well as from dealers. . t
Another institution which aids the it
roducer to dispose of his crop is the
ublie warehouse. Illustrations of this
bre afforded in the marketing of to- -
acco in Virginia and North Caroiiba, .
sool from the northern Rocky Mountain It
tates, and to some extent rice in Louis- T,
ana and Texas. The growers or their ti
-presentatives, with their produce, l(
neet the buyers at these warehouses-.
DIVERSION IN TRANSIT* ki
While farm products are in transit by ct
'ail. there are certain points at which w
he consignor may desIgnate a final des-- ec
ination. Tbe purpose of this practice pi
s to enable the consignor to find the ti
yest market for his goods. This is theg
>lan followed in shipping fruits and se
regetables by rail from California to fr
he East and from Southern States to w
The Secretary of Agriculture h as ti
n c h to say'- concerning associative p
narketing by farmers, and the eco- w
iomic advantages are stated in- detail. o
'A survey of the systems of marketing o
arm products clearly -discovers -what c<
he farmers can best do to their advan- fa
age. They must associate themselves sC
ogether for the purpose of assembling ci
heir individual contributions of prod- pa
jts, of shipping In carload lots, of oh
aining market news at places to which ei
.t is practical to send their products, to e
;ell in a considerable number of mar-p
lets, if not in many markets, and to se- o
:ure the various other economic gains ~
f associative selling." b
To carry out this suggestion, it is rec- tJ
>mmended that if Congress establishes a
division of markets, a coprs of travel- s<
.ng field agents be maintained to assist ti
'armers to form associations for market- t'
ng their products. n
STIMATES OF FRUIT AND VEGETABLE i
It is also recommended that estimates
f the prospective supply of fruits and
regetables, and perhaps other products|
ot now representea in the quantitative h
rstimates of the department's crop re- c
porting service, be made a short time e
before harvest, so that the farmer m-ay le
"have in mind a fairly definite idea of o
the volume of the crop throughout the g
country in order that he may occupy a c<
place in the market that is fair to him- b
self or, as the cas6 may be, a place in i
the market that is fair to the consumer." t1
General market news service is not e
recommended. If such service were de- b
rived from telegraphic reports, the ex- t1
pense would be enormous. One farmer's t
association spends $25,000 a year in tele- p
graphing alone and a fruit growers' or- t:
ganization spends $75,000,000 for this p

SUBJECTS FOR INVESTIGA TION.
Among the subjects whose investiga
on is suggested are the storage of farm
~oducts either on the farm or else.
here pending their Sale; the business
commission dealers; the various costs
marketing, properly itemiized, and
>mpa red w.ith prices of products atsthe
.rm and with consumers' prices; a de.
ription of principal markets and of
ief producing i egions; and, s om e
roblems of transportation.
Some information with regard to for.
n markets, it is advised, might be
ade useful to producers. It is propos.
sed also to keep an elaborate record
prices of farm products in which
rices at the farm shall be paralleled
y wholesale and retail prices. Among
i other recommendations are the
aintenance of a list of marketing as
>ciations and the collection of statis
s concerning the business done by
tem the investigation of systems ol
arketing farm products in other coun
its, with special attention to those
tatures which it may be assumed might
e adopted beneficially in this country.
PROPOSAL TO AID CONSUMERS.
The Secr etary of Agriculture closes
is recommendations by making one
oncerning the participation of consum
rs in the solution of marketing prob.
ms. "A cheapening of farmers' costs
fmarketing v'ill naturally result ir
an to the producer rather than to the
nsumer. If the consumer is to gain
y changes in the costs of distribution,
seems probable that he must do sc
irough cheapening or eliminating
iosts at his end of the chain of distri
ution. The consumers can cheaper
ie costs of farm products by co-opera
te buying and by reducing the ex
enses of retail and other local distribu
ion. The consumler's aspect of the
roblems of the distribution of farrr
roducts is a conspicuous one at the
resent time, and problems in distribu
ion tnat are concerning the consumer
ather than the producer may well be
ciuded within the service of a divis
an f markets."
