Taking the large scope of our farm
ing community into account, with
the productiveness of our soil as a
resource to draw from for the support
of iudustOes of ibis kiud even ou an
extensive scale, it may seem that a
cooperative venture of this soil from
an economical poiut of view would
be of great value to all inasmuch u
it would open a market to our farmers
for commodities that can be raised
here lu great profusion, on the other
ham! It would give employment to a
large number of winking men. women
