idea and you will at ones eea tbe
enormity of tbe fertiliser movement
daring the Spring months. In our
opinion, It would S* far better if tha
farmer would lag in his fertilisar re
quirements earlier in the season and
tan* stretch the delivery season over
a lon.jr period. Usually tha farmer
does not place hie orders for shipment
earlier than February or March,
whereas be should begin to receive
his supplies oae to two months soon
er. ’rills distribution of shipment*
would greatly facilitate the handling
of farutiaeia both by the railroads
and factories. We believa la co-op

already at this dsta made actual de

isers, which is something unusual if
not unheard of thin early in the sea
