POMONA GRANGE MEETING. Interesting Seaslon Held at Ran dolph Yesterday Oiscuaaions. The Central Vermont Pomona grange had an attendance of about 250 yesterday at tbe afternoon aeasion, which waa open to the public and which waa of a decided ly interesting character. A delegation of 20 came from Nortbfield, while Berlin, Middledsex and Boxbury grange! were all well represented. Dinner waa served to about 90 in Grange hail. Mn. Dix J. Camp of East Bandolph, lecturer, made a very able preaiding offl oer and bandied the meeting in a busi-nesi-like manner worthy of emulation by aome masculine wielder of the gavel. After an opening selection by tba West Bandolph Grange choir, Past Master A. M. Vaugban gave tbe greeting, to which Arthur Maxham of Middlesex responded. "Tbe Privileges and Bleaaing of a Farmer' Wife" were attractively present ed by Mra. A. A. Gilman of tbia town. whose address was followed by a duet from A. M. Vausban and John L. Hutch inson. "Tbe Best Policy in Begard to Wages and Spending Money for Farmers' , Boy and Girls'" was the subject of an en tertaining discussion by Elliot Frink of Brookfleld and Mra. Charles Pervier of Nortbfield, and the piper of th latter had io many good point! that it will be printed in another iaaue by request. Mr. Fay J. Burnell read an amusing ketch concerning a new kind of burglar alarm, and Glenn Bailey favored th a- aembly witb a cornet solo. An addrea on "Good Boads" wa de livered by Burn L. Osgood of Gayaville, master of W bite Kiver Valley Pomona grange, wbo acknowledged that bia expe rience witb good road! bad been limited but claimed an extensive acquaintance with bad road acquired during tbe last five years, in wbloh fee ba traveled 45, 000 miles, or far enough to go around the world once and half around again. Then ii no question before the country today, he laid, which affect it to ucb an extent a tba problem of good road. If farmers bad good road so that their product oould b carried to market, not in a rush a we do It now in seasons of passable traveling, but steadily In all sea sons, tbe congestion of railroad tratflc would be done away. At present freight cornea in beapi like Ice floating down stream in tbe spring break-op, clogging tbe channela of commerce. Tbe increase in tbe price of living la due In part to tbe rough roada, over which tbe farmer muat baul bli products to market. It is diffi cult to market eggs in good condition with poor highways; for if you drive along at a fair gait, yon will break tbe egga and If you drive alow enough to avoid mishap ' the egga will torn Into chlckeni before they can reach the con sumer. All farm paper claim that many mil lions of dollar are loat to the farmera every year on account of tbe poor high way over which tbey must transport their urodncts. The loss eome In tb extra expense "oriiarnTrig.Ttne'w-ear and tear of wagoni and barneaoea, ' tbe small loads, the loaa of energy and borse-flesb, tbe loss of time and temper. The old Hon bridge and military road that led to Borne carried progress and prosperity to the center of tbe system. The wealth of tbe United States is In it farms, and prosperity in both country and city de pend on the farm and Ita owner. There fore it ia of interest to all that tbe high way of tbe country abould be tbe best which money and education can devise, and if you are working for the uplift of Vermont, strive to build better roada. At tbia point in tbe meuting D. 11. Morse introduced a resolution to th effect that tbe membera of tbe Central Vermont Pomona grange and all patrons of tbe canning factories demand and In sist on receiving 115 per ton or 2 '4 cent! per pound for kernel! for the crop of 1010. He contended that, owing to toe bigb cost of all feed stuff?, it la more pro fitable to raise silo or yellow corn, peaa and oata, aixty-day oata for tbreehing, or potatoes than iweet corn at f 11 a ton. He disclsimed any Intention to embarrass or injure tbe csnning factory by thia res olution ; for tbe Demeritt & Palmer com pany, when it came here, made a fair proposition to the farmer and has car ried out that agreement to tbe letter. Even when it has been imposed npon by the farmers, tbe company baa taken it ilh good grace. When Ilrmeritt a Palmer started their factory in this place . L.: - A mm lh.. ,.,,IH ,,,....,T . .v. give, but times bave changed. in i n i and all over the cmntry farmers are ask ing for an increase in tbe price of aweet corn. In Maine they want 24 cents per pound, or f 18 a ton. Four great packing concern in Maine pay 2'4 centa per pouud, or lfi.20 per too for ttiis kind of corn. They cut the corn from the cob, weight it and, it the corn la good, the producer geta a good price; otherwise be baa to take lesa. Una man may raise corn that will yield 720 pounds to tbe ton, and four tone to tbe acre, and bis neinhbor'e corn may fall far short of 720 pounds, and yet botb are paid (11 a ton. Tbe first man doesn't receive tbe full value of bia labor and the second ia over paid. Every man abould bave what le longa to him, no more and no less. Since Demerit! A Palmer have made tbeir contracts with tbe farmera for this sea son, Mr. Morse counseled a faithful ad herence to the agreement and more con sideration another time. A. M. Vaagban Mated that acres and acres of corn bad been brought to this canning factory that was way below tbe average per ton and went through aa nubbins. It ia not for the interest ol farmers to raise corn that doesn't produce more tt-an to tona to the acre. Four tons to tbe arre is mure than anevt r.iire fur et corn, but it only means fit for the raiser. One hundred and fifty ha-kets of yellow corn will make 75 bunhels of shelled corn, worth $5 cents a tjuhel or (r)3, wit h no more lator ex- iwnc'ed in raising aud harvesting than j saeet corn demands. I H. W. Vail thought Demeritt A Pslroer j would be glad to c ha pee to the Maine method when there should be a demand for aucb a change but they claim that tbeir patrona would then receive no more j than tbey do now. Ibe canning indus try is new here and was brought here through tbe efforts and financial assist-1 a net of tb citizen of Bandolph and an-1 leaa It ia mutually profitable to tbe farm- era and the operator it cannot live. Two years ago the company raised the price it paid for corn from 10 to 111 a ton and ia the only packing concern In tbe state paying that sum. Tbe factory has new I patrons every year and if one fresh to i the business makea a mistake and baa a poor crop oue season, he is quite likely to improve another year and become a pro ducer of good corn; whereas hs would be come discouraged if bia first crop waa re fused. Mr. Vail objected to tbe wording of tbe reaolution aa liable to be under stood as a reflection on their business methods by Demeritt & Palmer. Thereupon Mr. Morse withdrew hi resolution witb recommendation that tbe aubject be discussed by tbe termers among themselves and with the packers. A soprano solo by Miss Lettie Bailey preceded a discussion led by F. A. Joslyn of Nortbfield on tbe question of whether, at the present priocs of grain, farmer should buy fertilizers to increase tbeir grain crops. Tbe fact that be is In the buaineas of selling fertilizer was not tb only reason Mr. Joalyn aaid for hia favor ing tbeir use. Ha thought tbe time had come when it would be more profitable tor farmer to raise small grains, the straw from which will nearly cover tb coat of production. A. M. Vaugban suggested that tb farmera buy their chemical and mix tbeir own fertilizers, thereby saving from fti to f 12 a ton which tbey pay fertiliser dealer for something no better than tbey can make. Plenty of recipe for mixing can be bad from tbe experiment station for tbe asking, and .Dana A. 8poonet would be glad to furnish tbe necessary Ingredients at a reasonable scale of prices, which Mr. Vaugban read. Dix J. Camp anggeeted feeding cotton aeed meal to stock and getting double value for tbe money in teed and fertiliser. A thia is a stock-raising eectioa be thought it poor economy to buy fertilis er wbeo concentrate fed to (lock eould be returned to the soil. , Koowlton Howard objected to thi view because the soil need acid pboe pbates and fertilizing from concentrated feeds is not sufficient. Alonr.o Emery also took part In the dis cussion advocating the nse of fertilizers to aom extent. Church Note. Christian Science chapel Service Sun- day at 11 a. m.; subject, "Soul."
