Many changes are taking place in the readjustment of conditions from a war period to one of peace, antl these conditions are being met. by the peo ple of our country, in much the same -spirit as prevailed in war times, which exemplification is being shown in mat ters requiring closer co-operation of the whole people, j The war Conditions have been in strumental in teaching th necessity of co-operation, and since the funda mentals have been so efficiently dem onstrated it becomes our unified duty to apply the results gained toward further co-operative development and . s-ince the eyes of the world are now ' on the American farmer, as to how j he will handle the food, feed and for 1 age production, to meet the greatest j dejnand for such products the world i has ever faced, and to do so at a time ! when adequate farm help is a puzzle ; for the best brains, it certainly be comes the duty of our farmers to prac- tice the most efficient means of con ; serving energy in their farm help, that i greater results may be obtained from j a less number of farm helpers. r . . . : cr i The matter of co-operative exchange of farm help is one which has proved in many instances of great advantage in performing certain kinds of work to be performed in a given poriod of time. We have many crops which are perishable in their nature and require harvesting or handling of t lie entire crop in a period of. say. one month. The time may be longer or may be shorter, but in either case the work HF P f II UUI - I 1 lution would be for the boy to cn gage the services of a few neighbors for a couple of days to liar vest his peanuts, after which he could repay the neighbor in helping them during some emergency in which they needed makes possible, then, a twenty acre crop of peanuts that otherwise may not have been possible. The boy's peanut crop after being placed in st;ks could remain in that condition until the picker came into work of marketing the crop could bo successfully handled by the boy alone. This exchansre of heln at a time when the neighborhood, and the remaining j to were needing some assistance requir ing extra services for a short time. These exarjr.jles are given simply to i SB us a source of great pleasure in their younger days. Of course, the husking bees was usually followed by some en tertainment wf fantastic glee, at which music and dancing were the principal features, but the main object of the husking bte was an exemplification of co-operative exchange of help, for the i purpose of husking corn, which was a i r.ecestary u:ul tedious work, before the corn 'ou!d bo milled or satisfac torily marketed. Another good illustration of co-operative effort ha.- been demonstrated in of h:s ! ,vi!-t isr! tii be known as "loer rol lings." i-'or instance, a farmer r.eed-d some new land cleared, and with his ordinary h-.--' would saw down tries, cut the limbs o!f, and otherwise have the work under way. He would an r.cun -. to his neighbors that on a cer tain d.iv l.e v uld have a "log roiling." When the dav for log rolling came. he. with all his neighbors, would proceed i to the land to be cleared, and help was then available to ro lo?s in to piles, where Ihey v.cn- burn ed. Separately ar.d without additional irj help, the logs were too heavy for them handled. Used for Everything. This same method of co-operative exchange of farm help has been us. d i M More to i rr It Costs No Get the I est! when you buy INSURANCE OF ANY KIND be sure you get it.

This fact, then, allows us the priv ilege of combining our forces and by working from one field to another we can conserve, help and cn'-'rgy.
