MARKETING BY PARCEL POST
Plan Outlined by Department of Agri
culture for Building Up Trade
and How to Keep It.
(Prepared by the United State« Depart
ment of Agriculture.)
Parcel post as a means of transpor
tation has been found by commercial
houses to be useful and efllcient. There
Is no reason why farmers cannot make
extensive use of It under certain condi
tions If they will. It has been found
that one of the chief factors In pre
venting the satisfactory development
of parcel post marketing has been the
price asked by some farmers for prod
uce. To Illustrate: One farmer's wife
was receiving 20 cents a pound for but
ter In her local' market, a country
store. When asked if she would be
willing to ship It to a city by parcel
post, and at what price, she replied
that she would do so at 50 cents a
pound. Would-be purchasers frequent
ly have been known to offer producers
an wi hut
I mow ( h i ll iii limii»
Well-Prepared, Attractive Parcel Poet
a lower price than they can obtain in
their local markets. It is needless to
say that such imperfect and erroneous
ideas as to proper and equitable prices
altogether defeated the possibility of
marketing produce by parcel post.
Business in marketing by parcel post
can be secured and held only by ship
ping produce of high quality and by
charging reasonable prices.
The larger the quantity, within the
postal limits, that Is shipped at any
one time, the more economical is the
factor of postage and therefore the
more attractive from the viewpoint of
cost both to the producer and to the
consumer. This applies both to ship
ments and the return of empty con
tainers. It would not be economical to
secure half a dozen different kinds of
vegetables from as many different pro
ducers, but if a supply of half a dozen
kinds of vegetables, or vegetables and
fruits, could be obtained in one parcel
from one producer it would be both
advantageous and attractive.
Anot bir Advantage to the producer
in parcel post marketing is that his
mail box or local post office becomes
his shipping station. This relieves him
from any extra trip in order to make
shipment, as the rural mail carrier
takes the shipment from the mail box
or some member of the farmer's fam
ily deposits It at the post office when
going to call for the mail.
Many farmers often have a small
surplus of produce, not needed for
home consumption, which could be
marketed if some ready means of get
ting it to a consumer were available.
The parcel post supplies this medium.
There are also many supplemental or
side lines of production which could
be developed for the same purpose.
Mutual confidence and helpfulness
are needed in order to succeed; co-op
eration in needed. Consumers are in
terested lu buying by parcel post only
when they can secure more satisfac
tory produce, some advantage in price,
or both. The producer will not be in
terested in marketing by parcel post
unless It means some additional net
return to him. A high quality of prod
uce, well prepared, carefully and at
tractively packed, and forwarded so as
to reach its destination at the time de
sired will go a long way toward the es
tablishment and continuance of busi
ness. Ordinary or inferior produce will
not only lose a customer but hinder the
gaining of others. The producer must
aim to give satisfaction by supplying
his customers, as nearly as possible,
with produce which meets their indi
vidual desires. The consumer must
also aim to give satisfaction by proper
ly caring for and returning containers,
making prompt remittances as agreed
upon and by doing his part in all
phases of the transaction. In other
words, a square deal is needed.
DAIRY COW FOOD CONSERVER
One Greet Law la to Turn Inedible
Feeds Into Food In Cheap
est Manner Poaaible.
«Prepared by the United States Depart
ment of Agriculture.)
Two facts stand out prominently s»
reasons for the increased production
The first is that
and use of milk,
milk as purchased on the market
usually supplies food material togeth
er with the growth-producing meat or
eggs. The second reason is that the
dairy cow Is the most economical pro
ducer of animal food. One great law
of food conservation Is to turn In
edible feeds Into edible foods in the
cheapest possible manner. The dairy
cow will utilize coarse materials. In
edible to humans—such as grass, corn
stalks, hay, etc.—and will turn them
into milk. Other farm animals also
are converters of coarse roughage lute
edible foods but are not so efficient ai
'he dairy cow.

According to the story of the surviv

the side of the ship. The torpedo did
not strike a vital sisit, however, and
the captain crowded on full steam in
un effort to escape, at the same time
ordering tlie gun crews into action
against the submarine, which appeared
about a mile off.
"Our gun crews did not fire more
thun five or six shots," one of the sur
vivors said. "Tlie forward gun was
shot away almost at once. Tlie after
gun and its crew were done for almost
us quickly. Then tlie men went into
the bouts, but it was no use, as tlie
flying shrapnel was spraying tlie
decks, and men fell in scores, either
killed or badly wounded."
