The Farmers Union.
WHAT IT IS.
Some of the readers of these
articles probably wonder just
what there is behind them.
In a series of articles to follow
we intend to explain these
things, i. e.: what the Farmers
Union is, why it is, what il
stands for, and what it is,doinf
for the betterment of the eoun
try.
\Vc can best explain what il
is by analyzing ihe name.
The Farmers.
It is essentially a Union ol
Farhiers, and works in the in
terest of the farmer who cannol
help himself.
it does what we have been
asked to do, i. e., it gets the ag
rieultura! class together; it issue*
a call to farmers everywhere t<
“Help us help you.”
Educational.
It seeks to educate the farmei
to the knowledge of his real con
dition, to a proper knowledgi
of bow to cultivate bis crops
properly, and bow to market bis
crops to the best advantage. Il
is now seeking to educate tin
people to what the farmers need,
what they want, and what they
must do.
Co-operative.
Under the head of “Co-opera
tion” much can he said.
The government, our gov
ernment is placing much em
phasis on this word; the De
partment of Agriculture has
been urging the organization oi
co-operative bodies, but takes
no notice that the Farmers' Un
ion IS co-operative. You pro
gressive farmers who wish to
enter co-operative organizations
remember that the Farmers'
Union IS co-operative.
Co-operative, how?
We co-operate in the indus
trial field by buying together
and selling together, and, too,
by die building of Farmers’ Co
operative Stores.
When we make use of our co
operative plan and buy together,
products decrease in price to all.
So, by co-operating, we help oth
ers as well as ourselves; by sell
ing together we force up the
price on the local market,
thereby helping other farmers
in the community a little too.
We are the backers of a plan
of co-operative selling of cotton
direct to the spinners, which
several of our Franklin county
farmers have already taken ad
vantage of.
Of co-operative stores we need
say but little, for it is a self
evident fact that the farmer is
belter off who is making the re
tail profit on his supplies him
self.
I tut co-operation in the indus
trial field IS NOT ALL we can
do: we co-operate in the polit
ical field. We base worked for
a Comprehensive Initiative and
Referendum Law for many
years. " l was because of our
efforts that our present law was
passed. And we were behind
Amendment No. 13, but our op
ponents told the people that it
was a “wet" amendment. WE
EMPHATICALLY DENY IT,
and. in fact, we claim it was a
"DRY" measure. However, we
are still working, and will con
tinue to do so until we are suc
cessful.
Union.
On the subject* of luion litll«*
need be said, we may say more
later.
Of America.
This Union is National, and
is growing stronger.
In North Dakota they entered
the political field as part of a
non-partisan organization, and
they are doing things as they
should be done in Arkansas.
If politicians would give us
what we need we would not have
to organize and fight for our
rights. But LISTEN, fellow
fpriners! You will get out of
politicians no more than you
ASK FOR, and, chances are, you
won’t get it then UNLESS
YOU ENFORCE YOUR DE
MANDS.
“In Union there is Strength.”

daughter. Miss Gwendyl.vn, to

people have lived in Oak Grove
all their lives, and the friends,
who listened to Rev. T. Smith
speak the words that made them
man and wife, joined with rel
atives in wishing them manj
happy years in .which to sail to
gether on the sea of time. A
brother and sister of the bride
stood up with the couple.
The bride and tier sister, Miss
Gladys, both wore dresses of
white silk, which were made in
a manner that was very becom
ing to them.
A bountiful wedding suppei
was served, and some sweef
music enjoyed by the guests. A
special feature of the evening

The young people took their
places in the shade of a large
tree on the lawn, which had
been made beautiful with native
flowers and ferns.
The bride wore a becoming
dress of flowered voile, and car
ried a bouquet of garden flowers,
which had been gathered a few
minutes before by her nttie sis
ter, Carol.
Mrs. E. M. Coffey, grand
mother of the bride, presided at
the luncheon table. The bride’s
cake contained a bachelor’s but
ton, a ring and a piece of mon
ey. Her brothers, Robert and
Harold’s, fate was decided at
this time. Robert found the
button in his cake, and as the
adage goes, will always remain
a bachelor. Harold had the ring
and should be the next to marry.
Tha money fell upon the table,
so leaving the fortunes of the
guests as they were.
After a pleasant time, the
young couple bid the guests good
bye and started on their journey

May a kind future smile upon
