Farmers Educational and Co-Operative Union of America JlattnsEspedal Moment to the Progretthre Agricohnrist Hope is the best- doctor. Ground grain goes, farthest. Tomorrow is the best day yet! A good old two-foot rule: Keep your feet dry. It is better to be poor and well, than rich and ill. . Yesterday is hopeless; today is bet ter than tomorrow. ' The folks who think themselves "big bugs" are often humbugs. . Some people have fine stock, and yet by careless neglect invite loss. Throwing out money with a scoop paves the way for almshouse soup. Few men love the tax collector, yet everybody does business with him. A neat letter head is a standing ad vertisement of a businesslike farmer. It isn't the size of the present we prize, it's the fellowship in and behind it. It is better to live in a cabin with your wife than in a palace without her. j If you want to keep hired hands don't let your son boss them too much. We can save ourselves from a good many worries by just walking around them. These are the days when the short horse is too frequently curried neither soon or late. There is no better measure of the worth of a man than the uplift he gives to humanity. It is easy to preach, but not so easy to teach, and the teacher must know a lot more than he teaches. There can't be much "sunshine in the soul" when one goes through life sighing "This world's a wilderness of woe." CANADA SETS' GOOD EXAMPLE Co-Operative Organization at St. Cath arines Ships, Large Quantities of Fruit to the West. The St. Catharines. Ontaria. Cold Storage company is a good example of a concern organized as a joint stock company, yet working steadily in the direction of true co-operation. This society was organized in 1896, and has a mechanical cold storage plant val ued at $13,000 and a working capital of $2,000. A part of the capital was secured by mortgage on the property. The debt has been entirely paid off by the addition of new members who took stock, and by applying the divi dends on the stock to this purpose. Working capital has also been p: vided. " The society is now endeav lng to effect an equal division shares, with each member holding worth of stock. To do (his it Is traa- ferrlhg stock of the old members hold- ing more man wis amount 10 new Ing so much. Thus the society will be conducted eventually on a one-man-one-vote basis. The company . ships to all parts of Ontario and Quebec and to many parts of western Canada, the shipments con sisting of apples, pears, peaches, plums, cherries, grapes and an in creasing quantity of other fruits and vegetables. The sales amount to about $75,000 annually. The society handles supplies for its members and others. It handles fruit for non-members, and sells supplies to them, paying over one-half as much profit per dollar as it returns t& members. The Bupply branch is a very important part of the business of the society, as it handles all kinds of fruit packages, spray pumps, and other machinery, ladders, etc., seeds, fertilizers and spraying chemicals. It has now be come the temporary wholesaler for the federation of fruit associations. In 1908 the supplies amounted to about $27,000 and in 1900 to $40,000. The society charges a little less than regu lar market prices and then rebates to members and to non-members buying through the association and selling their fruit the same way, the percent age of rebate depending upon the amount of business done with the so ciety. Help Our Cotton Growers. The Farmers' Educational and Co operative Union of America are mak ing an appeal for the use of cotton for bagging. At present jute is used gen erally, being a little cheaper than cot ton, but the millions paid by Amer ican consumers for jute go abroad, while the same or a little greater amount spent on cotton fabric would go into American pockets. Jute is raised mostly in India Cotton could be used to advantage in place of Jute "for holding grains, sugar, salt, coffee, beans, potatoes, meats and many other articles. It could also replace jute in rope and twine. Solve Matot Problem. ' Because a man gnjws good fruit is bo indication that tie is selling that fruit for . what it is really worth. It is one thing to grow the fruit, and another thing to sell it. Co-operative marketing associations solve the mar keting problem, and enable the grower to get full value. Disease Preventive. The man who keeps everything neat and clean about his hog yards is not very apt to have trouble from cholera or any . other disease, provided , of course, that he feeds good, clean feed. Keep Boar by Himself. Give the herd boar a penr by himself and grain enough to keep in gcod condition. r K FARMEBS FORM "NEV SOCIETY Aimsto Affiliate All Organizations for : Action Along Lines, of Country ; : ; Life Questions. : , The objects outlined by ; the. ., new constitution adopted by the Farmers National congress in New Orleans, are to affiliate all societies for action along lines of .broad country life ques tions; to aid in establishing state and local organizations devoted to country life; to secure co-operation among pro ducers; to aid in general and vocation al education of farmers., and to further the passage and execution ' of laws which 'Will promote country life. . This constitution provides for two kinds of membership. Persons may become annual members by paying an nual dues of one dollar; after attend ing one annual meeting, annual mem bers may become life members by the payment of ten dollars, or, after at tending four annual meetings they may become life members upon the payment of one dollar. Associations, institutions and departments may be come members and send delegates up on payment of ten dollars for one dele-. gate and five dollars for each addi tional delegate. Organizations with four to eight thousand members are entitled to two delegates each; eight to sixteen thousand members, three delegates, and one additional delegate for each additional -sixteen thousand members. Each delegate has one vote, but in dividual members from a given state are to pool their votes and vote by states. Each state delegation is en titled to' as many votes in jthe annual meeting as there are multiples of ten thousand farms in the state. There being something like seven million farms In the United States, this would provide about seven hundred votes from all states. It is believed that there are about fifteeu hundred coun try life organizations which may be considered by the council eligible to membership; with' the additional dele gates from large 'organizations there may be approximately two thousand delegates representing organizations. This means a possible delegate body in annual meeting with between twenty-five hundred an3 three thousand voting delegates, f Besides the usual executive officers, there is a council made up of one member from each state, and this council elects an executive of five members chosen from the membership of the council. There is also a vice president for each state, who is chair man of his state delegation. It is expected the individual mem bership will be rapidly increased to thousands, or even-tens of thousands, and also that most eligible organiza tions will adhere wf Uiin a few years. This will provide an annual budget of some tens of thousands of dollars.

The constitution may be amended in either of two ways. Upon a year's notice, it can be changed by a two-thirds vote at the annual meeting; or. after dis cussion, at an annual meeting, it can be amended by mail, or by return pos tal card vote, within thirty days after the annual meeting. The new constitution was made at once operative and the old officers, who had been elected for a two-year term, were retained for the ensuing year. The president is C. F. Sanford. London, O., and the secretary is J. H. Kimble, Port Deposit, Md.; John M. Stahl of Chicago is legislative agent and W. L. Ames of Wisconsin is treas urer. Provision has also been made for a committee to investigate an efficient warehouse system for all farm prod ucts, with a view to securing adequate and inexpensive warehouse facilities. Other committees are being projected Planning Home Orchards. A farm orchard for home use only should differ as to the varieties from a commercial orchard. . In the latter three or four varieties is enough, no matter how many acres you may plant, and you select these for proved bearing qualities and size and keeping. For the home orchard you aim for variety, something for all seasons. You want a few trees of the earliest. Some of the choicest dessert fruit, even if tender in tree and not very produc tive. Before selecting consult with your nearest fruit grower: Take his ad vice rather than that of the traveling salesman. Dress Poultry-Properly. Poorly dressed poultry goes begging In the market, while the supply of choice (fancy) stock is not sufficient to meet the demand. In shipping to market, all dressed poultry should be assorted according to size and color, in order to secure the best returns. Small. poor, scraggy birds, half dressed, bring prices in proportion. .

Building at Berrien Springs Once Owned by a Young Widow Who Was Woed and Won by a Chicagoan r 'n an Odd Place. Berrien Springs, Mich. The old Berrien county courthouse at, Berrien Springs, Mich., connected with which there is an unusual Chicago romance, has been advertised to be sold under the hammer, in order to satisfy an in debtedness that has been hanging over it for 'some time. A Chicago minister named Flavlus J. Probst once married Into the pos session of this historic structure, which was erected in the early 30s, and which at one time was one of the most extensive marrying places in the middle west. After the county seat was moved from Berrien Springs to St. Joseph the courthouse and the Jail came into the possession of Mrs. Julia Allen, a pret ty young widow of the former county seat. She became a member of a party invited to go through one , of the big Chicago water tunnels, and on this trip, so the story goes, she met Mr. Probst, and before either of them had again saw daylight they had fall en 'in love with each other, he pro posed and she accepted. They were subsequently married, and took up their abode in the jail section of the old county courthouse, where they spent their honeymoon and lived hap pily for some time. Then came a ripple in this odd sea of matrimony. The wife set up the claim that her husband had hypnot ized her into deeding him the court house property, and there was a suit to set aside the transfer. This suit hung in the courts for some years, and it had many of the angles of the famous Jarndyce vs. Jarndyce case in Dickens' "Bleak House," and people began to say that there wasn't much chance for Mrs. Probst getting judg ment until the day of judgment or un til the old courthouse had rotted away from the ravages of time. But a son of Mrs. Probst by her first marriage ultimately effected a settlement, and again the building passed back to the ownership of Mrs. Probst. Berrien Springs at the time the old courthouse was housing the govern mental business of Berrien county en joyed as much distinction as a Gret na Green as St. Joseph since has taken I JO 'f Old Courthouse at Berrien Springs. Mich. to itself.- Lovers paddled their ca noes up and down the St. Joe river, stopping long enough at Berrien to be married In its quaint old courthouse. Children and grandchildren of Michi gan, Indiana and. Illinois, pioneers pledged their troths within its shad ow and were joined in matrimony from its crude bench. The people of this section of Ber rien county say to this day that St. Joe boosters stole the county seat, and long after Mrs. Allen had. ac quired the old buildings the promo ters of the big dune overlooking Lake Michigan-evinced genuine regret that they hadn't carried the historic old building along with the books. ' Up to this time no one knows just what will become of the old south west Michigan landmark, but among the possibilities is the chance that it will pass into the hands of the lo cal lovers of history to house many different objects that tell of the early day and of human struggle in perma nent settlement. DOG'S BARK SAVES MASTER Boy Rescued From Suffocation in Sleep by Firemen Whose Quarters Are Across the Street. Chicago. The life of Nathan Kap lan, son of Frank Kaplan, owner of a saloon at 506 West Chicago avenue, was saved by the barking of a fox terrier when fire attacked the build- The boy was asleep in the rear of the saloon when fire, started by crossed electric wires, attacked the barroom.
