ed in the United States. It is
the one business in this country
that is not well organized. Oil,
coal, and all other treasures of
e earth have been developed
in'to a business system. The
iurest thing on earth, the pro
auction of food supplies, has
never been well organized.
In Denmark the farmers thirty
years'ago received only $12,000,
000 for their butter, eggs and
bacon. Then' they began tl e
organization of market societ,.
Nl6w the income from these pro
ducts is over $100,000,000 a dear.
SThe suggestion of Mr. Yos um
is* that the government should
establish a market bureau of the
Department of Agriculture, "de
voted to accumulating and dis
tributing information on the best d
pethods "ind best markets for
sielling. He poijts 'out that al
xeady Logan. Waller Page, the
'director of the office of publlic
roads, is doing praiseworthy
S~ork in putting the roads into
such condition as will reduce the
.cost of hauling throughout t'he
[ country, and says that this shQuld t
e supplemented by informsition
ito the farmer whereby he will be c
able to ascertain what becomes
of the difference in the amount 1
that he receives for his products i
iand the amount piid by the' con- i
sumer. The idea of Mr. Yoakum
Js to bring the farmer and con
'sumer closer together. Inasmuch t
as such an arrangement would
save to both of'them a large por
tion of the $7,0(),000,000 4 year
which now goes to the middle
men, it is a plla that should
command the suprt of the en
Mr.' Yoakum entitled to
credit for having e;pounded the
real economic issiiu before the
cpuntry so' 'clearly.; it remains
with the' farmers and the'gov- .
ernment to devise the means for
changing the conditions.
